    Must-Go Speakeasy Bars in Taipei

    Why You Should Dress-Up Too.

      Women in the cities in Asia seem to enjoy dressing up. They parade the streets on weekends with the latest it-bags – and not in your usual jeans, t-shirts and sneakers combination.  Girls nail the office wear too.  In Lausanne and even in the bigger city of Zurich, I would become self-conscious wearing simple… Read More » The post
