It is now a couple of months into the lunar year of the monkey. So far, the playful celestial primate has wrecked some havoc to the financial markets just. I guess the message is – volatility. We really live in interesting times!

The featured image of this post pretty much sums up the highlight of these first three months – the annual pilgrimage to Japan! There is just so much to say about the trip that there is not enough space in the newsletter. Our own travelogue for the trip ran into 33 pages! We are now working on truncating the original versions of our travel logs and share these journeys. Watch out for them!
From culinary delights both in Tokyo and in the rural country, to basking in beautiful weather with Mount Fuji in the backdrop, we had a wonderful journey. And Valentine’s day (called ‘red’ day in Japan) was full of surprises for us too. To top it off, we redeemed a pair of tickets to fly Suites on SQ for the return trip from Tokyo to Singapore. Melvin is now many miles ‘poorer’, but it’s a bucket list item that we also ticked plus it is as good as they say it is.
We have managed to book our Russia trip! This 9-day journey with a group of 20+ others will take place in the 3rd week of May. Finally we are placing pins on the eastern edges of the map of Europe. Exotic!
Until the next issue, safe travels and take care. Watch out for more posts here at this blog…and please give us your comments on the posts!
