At the moment I’m…

Watching: True Blood (quirky, sordid and much better than Twilight!)

Reading: The 4-hour work week by Timothy Ferris (lots of interesting ideas…)
Perusing: new home/decor online mag Lonny (lots of pretty pics and inspiration)
Drinking: Spicy chai (with Cambodian palm sugar and milk)
Eating: Pizza and cookies (but making salad tonight to compensate!)
Loving: 40,000 dong tops and 50,000 dong pedicures (we’re talking $2-3!)
Looking forward to: A trip to Phnom Penh in a few weeks (dying for a brownie from The Shop and stocking up at Russian Market, Bliss, Ambre etc. etc….!)
….how about you?

    Watching: Fantastic international films that I’ve only just discovered Maori TV plays every weekend.
    Reading: The Concise Chinese-English Dictionary for Lovers about a Chinese English student in England. I wouldn’t particularly recommend it but it’s OK. I’ve read 4 hour workweek, too. I can’t wait to hear your take on it.
    Perusing: Far too many blogs and not doing enough writing!
    Eating and drinking: Healthy salad-like food to lose weight but balancing that out with dark chocolate;-)
    Loving: My new computer
    Looking forward to: The end of my contract although I’ll miss my students.

    Kristina – I’m loving Rioja right now after drinking it (lots) in NYC!

    Amasc – I’m rationing season 2 right now too as I don’t want it (True Blood) to end! And apparently Season 3 hasn’t even started filming yet..

    Shantiwallah – did you enjoy 4-hour work week? Am still reading it but I love the idea of taking a series of mini retirements and the tips on managing time (like, I realise I spend way too much time reading all my google reader subscriptions and might need to implement some of his ideas i.e. his checking email only twice a day rule!)

    Fly Girl – The press trip sounds great! Am also just getting into Mad Men – I love the fashion and sets etc. and even the opening credits

    Bali Beach Bunny – have you seen Eat Pray Love being filmed yet as I hear they’re in Bali right now? Looking forward to seeing it when it’s out. Wow – your place is opening in January – that didn’t seem to take long, how exciting!

    Enjoy Phnom Penh! I’d really love to make it back there, especially if it means an afternoon spent with a latte and a brownie at the Shop.

    I’ve been rereading all of my Haruki Murakami favourites, like Wild Sheep Chase, Dance Dance Dance, and Sputnik Sweetheart. Great for the moody weather we’re having in Cape Town.

    And curiously, there have been a lot of cookies and pizza here, too… -X

    I’m back! I just wanted to pop in and say that even though I don’t know all of these people I’m really fascinated by seeing what bloggers are into around the world. Great idea for a post. Thank you!
