Making Croissants with Honey Cardamom Butter



My father told me I should just catch the red eye from Kuala Lumpur to Doha. It wasn’t a bad prospect. If anything, you’d remember looking down, misting the windows, watching the lights blurring together with the night sky. New Year’s Eve at 30.000 feet, sitting next to a complete stranger.

Now this is the way to start a new year. Beautiful and buttery pastry, layered with sweet and poignant advice.

This weekend, find a story to be inspired by; tell a story to make someone laugh; and live a story that encourages others. We may be the main character in our own stories, but remember that we’re all supporting roles in each others.

Happy Friday, my hungry people! Xox.

Drew Houston – MIT Commencement 2013

Working on some stuff in Boston for the week and I enjoyed stumbling upon MIT’s recent commencement speech given by Dropbox’s Drew Houston. He talks about hunger for tennis balls, Hotpockets, and filling your life with adventure. Definitely worth the read if you’re looking for some inspiration on this Monday afternoon!

“Your biggest risk isn’t failing, it’s getting too comfortable.”

Stay hungry.
