HOT Alert: Week of 9 November 2009

Jetsetting Joyce’s diary for this week. Mon – blank Tuesday – blank Wednesday – blank Thursday – blank Friday – blank Of course not! This week I’m searching for Beethoven, time travelling with Eric Bana, discussing acoustic folk pop with Anita George, going on a blind date with my new blog crush Miss Kish, listening […]

My foodie friend from London and the Jetsetting Parents are in town this week, which means fewer social events and a LOT more restaurant reviews.

HOT Alert: Week of 7 September 2009

Over the years I’ve had numerous comments that there aren’t enough NOTs in the blog. My response always is that I choose where I go (unfortunately, I don’t get paid to write), so I’m naturally not going to choose to do something that I suspect will be dodgy.  I liked Andre’s response; ‘well, that means […]
