Lake Como, Italy – Breathtaking!

Lake Como, an hour's drive north of Milan, has to be one of the most beautiful places I have been to with Y & R. After a rather hectic trip in Milan to cover the Milan Saloni, it was a nice way to wind down here before returning to Singapore. We rented the Mercedes CLS, because that seemed to be the only car with GPRS, a must-have when you are attempting to drive in a foreign land and furthermore a left-hand drive. The time we went was nice as it was slightly off peak and quiet and the weather was nice and cool, great for my fur!

Osaka has increasingly become quite a noteworthy gourmet haven, with an increasing number of Michelin star-rated...

Hakone Sights

Me posing with the yummy "cow-packaged" milk from Hakone. Miss it so much! In my part 2 on Hakone, I will share with you some of the memorable Hakone sights that we experienced. 1. The Hakone Open-Air Museum Ninotaira, Hakone-Town, Kanagawa-Prefecture, 250-0493 Japan http://www.hakone-oam.or.jp/english/ This is a definite must go for anybody that visits Hakone. Why? It's got an impressive open landscape of art, sculptures including those by Henry Moore and a Picasso Museum. Taking the escalator after buying our entry ticket to go to the "OPEN-AIR" area. This image had a cool 'sci-fi' feel to it. Map of the area - checking it so that we don't get lost. Reclining figure: Arch Leg (1969 - 70) by Henry Moore This pavilion designed by Tezuka...
