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!
