Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

Impossible Instant Lab by The Impossible Project

posted by on 12/09/2012


The impossible Project
have come up with a lab that converts photos from your iPhone to Polaroid photos! It’s called the ‘Impossible Instant Lab’ and the way it functions is that you download the ‘Impossible Instant Lab’ app which will prompt you to open your desired photo. Then you slot your iPhone face down into a dock and at the touch of a button it will do its thing, you just watch and wait…wide-eyed. This is actually a project on Kickstarter, the company need to raise $250,000 by 8th October. If they manage to gather the cash, it will retail for $299 or $189 if you back it on Kickstarter. Worth it? Maybe.  You can take some really cool photos on the iPhone especially with some of these filter apps, so having them in Polaroid form would be a blessing. P.S they WILL ship to the UK. Watch the short clip after the break for further info.

Short Film | Give

posted by on 12/09/2012

Blessed are those who give without interest. This video popped up on my radar as I was talking to my other half about possibly making a trip back to my motherland to help out and give back. This short film for Sevenly is beautifully shot featuring a simple but yet effective message on the truth about giving. It’s rarely about money and they’ve chosen to depict that by highlighting a few intimate acts of giving in an effort to represent what the word ‘GIVE‘ is about. Giving is living people, nothing comes close. Not even buying that Burberry trench that you’ve always wanted, change someone’s life with a little bit of love.

A Conversation With Mathai

posted by on 12/09/2012

I actually conducted this interview all the way back in July prior to my epic trip to the USA and clearly procrastination got the better of me when it came to transcribing it, apologies! Most of you may have come across Mathai through the US version of The Voice, if you haven’t, prepare yourself – you’re about to get acquainted. I don’t think we have any Indian singers in the UK music industry (Jay Sean doesn’t count) so it was a pleasant surprise to see her making waves across the pond. I just knew I had to get an interview with her, find out her story and how she managed to convince her parents to let her pursue music and not medicine. Tough challenge for any brown kid haha. More on the reverse.

Team GB Football | LDN 2012 Olympic Diary #3 | Parade

posted by on 11/09/2012

Yesterday was a great day but also a sad one. No more Olympics, Paralympics or an excuse for Olympic friendliness that has managed to make Londoners care about each other more than ever before! But, as cliche as it sounds, I do believe in the legacy of the Olympics and the inspiration that the medal successes will create for the next generation of sportsmen,women and paralympians. All of Team GB had an opportunity yesterday to say thank you to the unsung heroes of the games- supporters, volunteers, families, servicemen etc. It was overwhelming to see so many people in the streets of London shouting “Team GB, Team GB” and waving to us all on the floats. Check out the pictures after the cut of the 3 mile parade journey from Guildhall to Buckingham Palace.

Dope Quote #51

posted by on 10/09/2012

Click here for HQ version

It’s been well over a month, perhaps two since I last wrote a Dope Quote post. It’s fair to say my view point has altered in life and it’s not something I saw coming or even happening due to my stubbornness. I’ve always known where I was going; kind of cemented in my mind a straight path but going away and disconnecting from ‘the matrix‘ helped me understand the importance of vision and being open to let your path be swayed by whatever is thrown at you. Taking myself out of usual environment helped me see what life was like in places like Hawaii and Seattle, in fact the west coast in general was much more relaxed. It’s fair to say the path I saw myself taking a few months back has changed a little bit, the quiet life is what I yearn for. Do you really want to raise kids in London? More on the reverse. I’m OLD haha.

That crazy man we call Mayor of London Mr Boris Johnson has unveiled plans that will completely revamp the way cyclists travel around london. The new cycle lanes will sit high above the ground and will connect the home of the Olympic Park Stratford to the heart of The City via Liverpool St Station. The elevated lanes have been designed by  Exterior Architecture and will see users being charged £1 on their Oyster Card to gain access to the lanes. More on the reverse.
