"I had a farm in Africa..." Isak Dinesen aka Karen Blixen

Mali, Bamako, Mosque

sounds like Karen Blixen embodiment by brilliant Meryl Streep in Sydney Pollack film Out of Africa

We used to live in West Africa...with my parents, at that time my father was a diplomat at large, I kept from those years so many ineffable emotions in my mind, one among the most enticing ones is the view of the oldest mud mosque in a deep sub-saharian country along a dusty lost trail journey, here above the stunning building.

"for ipad user who likes to travel cool"


pour une fois, loin du luxe...une citation du New York Times on line



"We've been told since our childhoods, 'Politics is bad, don't get into politics.' But the point is that somebody has to clean it up. We can't just scold people."
PARTHO NAG, on a new activism among the middle class in India.
Pour mes amis qui ne parlent pas anglais:
"On nous a dit depuis qu'on est enfant, que la politique est mauvaise, et de ne pas y entrer. Mais la réalité est que quelqu'un doit nettoyer tout ça. On ne peut pas que critiquer."
Citation de M.Partho Nag un nouvel activiste de la classe bourgeoise en Inde.

photo Roberto with my Mororola phone Singtelfoodcourt, fooding in Sing, Singapore Lavender

foodcourts are famous in Singapore, although the city proposed 1000 000 alternatives from all kind of Asian to French and Italian or higher-than-skies restaurants, fooodcourts are fun and many are delicious and very cheap, you can find them anywhere in town, you may have dinner 24 h a day for less than 6 us$, I like their typical atmosphere, this one was located near my house in Lavender district.

Love the black patent leather Barbie doll slingback shoes! PingPing is towering at 6Ft and is a Beijing native girl, she used to be my house model during my haydays as fashion designer in Paris before my breakaway as a Headmaster in Singapore...Here showing one of my favorite design, a silicone algae looking bustle over a sarong handprinted silk batik wrapped pajama pants at Potel & Chabot (former Pavillon Gabriel).When Capucine de Villartay de Fouquières was a PR and organized a lavish push & pull lunch party at their premises outside Paris, a real hit, until Emanuel Ungaro happened to know I was there with countess Catherine de Limur then a Couture directrice and was mad at us both.

chapeau bas! Madame Paulette

Paulette, chapeau, hat

sublimes les années 30, ici un chapeau "poétique" de Paulette, "la" grande modiste de Paris. Je l'ai rencontrée il y a longtemps, elle se tenait comme une reine au milieu de ses créations, avenue Franklin Roosevelt et portait deux chevalières en or à armoiries, entremêlées l'une à l'autre, à l'un de ses auriculaires.RMF!
