Happy New Ears!

It’s nearly the end of January 2012, both New Year and Chinese New Year have passed, and I’ve only just gotten round to my first post of the year! It’s been a great start to the year so far though, with the first two days of 2012 being spent kitesurfing in Bintan.

Then I headed out to Milan and Paris for Men’s Fashion Week and got the lowdown on the catwalk trends for Fall/Winter 2012/13. It was freezing in Milan, much milder in Paris and generally a good couple of weeks with fashionista du jour Janie Cai, Fashion Director at August Man magazine (Singapore).

I then swapped the lovely boys on the runway for some fresh powder on the pistes of Chamonix. So I saw in the Water Dragon Lunar New Year on the slopes of Les Houches and Vallorcine. Can’t believe I’ve left it this long .. I think it’s been more than 8 years since I last went skiing! I’m loving it though, it’s a great kickstart and perfect cross training before I get back into my running regime for the year.

Race schedule for the year is still to be confirmed, but stay tuned for some interesting developments next month!
