The Woman in Red
If only you could have seen
My Woman in red
He caught his first sight of her
Behind a brick kiln shed
Though she appeared a shadow in the haze
Enslaved for ever he would be
Should anything stop a man from his work
Duties he would never shirk
His gaze transfixed on the way she walked
She floated past
Left him with only a stare
He could see her better
Only for the glare
If only he could have said
To the woman in red
The thoughts that were running
Through his head
Long of stride, strong of thigh
She continued to pass him by
The kind of woman that make strong men cry
Was the woman in red

Raffles Hotel – Singapore
Bar and Billiard Room
Regarded as the oldest existing bar in its original location in Singapore, Bar & Billiard Room is an institution within Raffles Singapore. It occupies a standalone building built in 1896, and was the first in the country to have a lady bartender stirring up a storm in the 1920s. One of the five original billiard tables from the turn of the century can be found there, where guests are welcomed to play. Picture windows look out to the surrounding thick foliage, interrupted by elegant cast-iron frames that compose the terrace.
The bar offers some 400 hand-selected whiskies, with many limited editions and labels imported just for this establishment. Lending its influence to the cocktail menu, the single malts have also gone on to inspire whisky-based beverages.

Bochic on GemGossip
A unique selection of the Bochic Conquistador ring collection were beautifully featured by Danielle Miele, the Nashville-based jewelry blogger of Gem Gossip blog.
‘A Bochic woman is confident and well-traveled. The Conquistador Collection exudes a hint of bravery as well, with inspirations from shields and armour, created by diamonds and 18k rose gold. The photoshoot inspired me to take the rings to a historic mansion in Middle Tennessee, a mansion that was caught in the crossfire of the Civil War. This mansion stood tall and elegant amongst the war. Just like any woman wearing Bochic jewels, no matter what comes her way, she will stand tall and elegant. The rose gold is a great juxtaposition against the black and white diamonds, with different qualities of white diamonds used to create a unique effect’~

@YourLeo tells about Sri Lanka Day 1:
It was pouring rain and as we arrived at the Matale Tamil Temple the rain stopped leaving a pure feeling behind. We walked in leaving our shoes outside enjoying the feeling of the cold floor at our feet. Quietly we joined the Puja (prayer ritual) that was taking place. What a marvelous experience – all our senses were intrigued by the burning smell, the colorful decoration, the intoxicating music and the touch of fruits and flowers placed in our palms. Thank you #SriLanka for an invigorating day on the #LeTourDeBochic
