Adidas ZNE Traveller Hoodie

When Adidas launched the Zero Negative Energy (ZNE) line, focusing on pre- and post-game athlete comfort, I wasn’t particularly listening. With the fashionable and sharp  traveller edition they caught my attention. My ZNE hoodie struck me as smart and fashionable, has an elongated hood that helps drown out cabin rumour during flights, has many hidden compartments and uses premium lining to make you feel at home during long hauls. Sounds like a lot of mumbo jumbo, but it’s genuinely lovely. Classic.

Christmas lights @ Central World

Central World in Bangkok upheld its yearly tradition of putting on a holiday light show in the plaza in front of the mall. This year’s theme is Winter White, the Garden of Happiness. Completed by a Christmas market, one almost feels the temperature drop below freezing while walking around the attractions. If you’re into the festive season, it is worth the visit. Some smartphone snapshots are available in this gallery. Sadly, once again I left the DSLR home. I guess we know what my New Year’s resolution is. Happy Holidays everyone! Hope you can spend them with your loved ones.

Hotel top tip: charging your devices

Our increasing use of smartphones, tablets and laptops while traveling implies a constant quest for a power outlet to charge them. Hotels, on the other hand, try to minimize their electricity bill by using a key card holder, so the electricity switches off when you’re not there. As a result, hotel guests are not able to charge batteries while out-and-about. There is a clever way around it, however. Refrigerators do not switch off, as it would make them useless. Just use that outlet for charging, while you’re not there. It may require some fidgeting or even a splitter, but I guarantee it works.

Ang Sila seafood market revisited

In spite of reports that the Ang Sila seafood market had been closed down in August (due to structural work to the pier) we decided to head over on December 5th and found it to still be thriving at the same location. The Ang Sila market sells extremely fresh and prepared fish and seafood, right on the local pier. Worth a visit for seafood lovers or anyone into authentic local markets. Pictures are available in this gallery.
