Our driver valiantly tried to keep apace with the Royal motorcade of the Crown Princess of Pahang, as we rushed towards prison.    Batik&Bubbles was invited to join a 3-day media tour in Pahang, a Malaysian state about three-hours drive east of Kuala Lumpur...

In a co-working space, freelancers and entrepreneurs are able to unleash the shackles of big buisness without the commitment of rent. They can meet like minded people and follow their passions.However, when people think of co-working spaces, tech startups and online businesses of many kinds are generally what comes to mind...

    Hi guys, just wanted to share an article I came across a bit earlier, about a wonderful initiative and some fantastic craftsmanship in the small community of Hohepa, Hawke's Bay, New Zealand. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did! A stop at Hohepa just outside of Napier will definitely be on my agenda on my next trip down south from Auckland!
