I've moved on...
...to a different domain. Why, what were you thinking? The truth is, I just woke up one day and decided it's time for a change—a metamorphosis, if you will; or, in layman's terms, if Britney can shave her head, then maybe so can I? Nevertheless, it's been a rather handsome 10 years of talking to you, and thank you for putting up with all my moodswings and terrible dad jokes. Fear not! The hormonal imbalance and jokes are more terrible on CUBICLE, see you there.

Alice inhales a bag of potato crisps between each motorway exits on the M4, West out of London. My hands are on the wheels (11-2, I swear, Brian) and concentrating on juggling the gearstick and the clutch. Due to an unexpected delay to our journey we, quite literally, are riding into a golden sunset, and I can’t help but sneakily press a button to peel the roof off the Jaguar F-TYPE and put on Sade’s ‘Smooth Operator’. Yeah, I’d like to think I’d have done well with the girls had I been a man.

It’s another escape, although this time more an escap-ade, with Alice Gao of Lingered Upon, to celebrate her first time in the UK. Like I said before, this is my preferred way of throwing parties: borrowing handsome (read: sexy) wheels and nipping out to the countryside. (It seriously is the best way to spend birthday money, given all requirements such as age/driving experience are met) Screw elaborate, expensive soirees where you end up frazzled by small-talk/up in a closet – borrow a car, grab a versatile camel coat (like this Max Mara beauty called Manuela from Selfridges) and honk from your friend’s doorstep. Roof down, of course.

Our destination? The road. And eventually, Bath – town set in the rolling South-West England, much better known for its natural hot springs and 18th Century Georgian structure. And home to Cereal Magazine, a visit to which is also on our agenda. In the meantime, a thick milky fog settles and we wade through – mostly with trepidation as the road gets narrower – but gabbing about everything and anything, music purring away gently with the car.
