I have made it to Hawaii, a bit jet lagged, but I am here. I love it here. I will be permanently based here.
Beirut once again was ranked one of the top fifteen cities in the world. I am here in the ‘Paris of the Middle East’ visiting my adopted Lebanese family. 💓 I am crazy about them and also Beirut. I keep coming back. Anthony Bourdain, bless his precious heart in heaven, said that he loved Beirut so much he almost named his daughter “Beirut.” I am so insanely lucky to have this family here. They make me feel so loved. Lebanese people know how to have a lot of fun! I am for sure the whitest girl at the pool LOL. I have spent summers in Beirut for six years of my life.
Here is a video of my drive through Beirut. I think I was singing at the end. lol
I just spent some time exploring Bangkok for the first time and I totally fell in love with this city. I am wearing black Bordelle, my favorite brand of lingerie in the world. While I had some down time for the first time in forever, I did my beauty treatments for one third of the cost than in the USA. This gent here did a fantastic job of showing exactly what I saw here and since he had the equipment and team to document it, you have to check out his video. What I loved so much about the city was that you could live an extremely luxurious lifestyle for a very affordable price. The 5 star hotels are what a 1 or 2 star hotel would cost in Manhattan. You can get a one hour Thai massage for $7.50. Any cosmetic procedure is more affordable than in the states with highly educated, experienced surgeons and aestheticians. It is a foodie city with world class shopping. Beware of the spices there though! My mouth was literally on fire when I first arrived and dined because I did not know everything is covered in chilis and I swear I felt like I ate rattlesnake venom or some poison. I could not handle it! The BRT is the absolute best way to get around as the traffic is like three times worse than LA. You have to try the bubble tea there it is amazing – I take mine with no sugar, light milk and tapioca pearls – I had one for breakfast every day. Sukhumvit is the best area to stay and Siam Paragon is the place to shop, Thai Baht is the currency, go when the weather is not too hot and enjoy questioning yourself if you are talking to a lady or a lady boy at any given moment.

Phuket was such a blast! This hotel room was so cute and was so affordable. I landed from Singapore and my luggage did not show up, so I just kicked back and relaxed. I never knew they had fucking shows and live ping pong shows of woman shooting ping pong, birds, fish and so much for from their pussies. I saw that craziness at Patong Beach. Hilarious!
