SUD Lisboa restaurant review

The demographics of dining options have definitely changed within the past 15 years in Lisbon. I recall the days when my parents and I were driving along the Cascais coastline to dine; at that time the spectacular restaurant was Porto de Santa Maria or Stanley Ho’s Fortaleza. The other options were the Mandarin Chinese restaurant…

Alentejo Wine Tasting behind Belém Cultural Center 2018

So, I am standing here in a huge tent behind the Belém Cultural Center. The audience is a mixed bunch of individuals ranging from visitors wanting to get boozed up to the more elaborate wine aficionados doing their “thing.” Everyone seems to be having a good time, and I am about to taste some forty…

I had the opportunity to pay Gunther Von Hagen’s ‘Body worlds 2, 3 and 4th’ shows in Lisbon, New York, and Los Angeles, respectively. However, this time around, I went to his latest exhibition in Lisbon named ‘Animal Inside Out’. It features more than 100 plastinates of animals divided into six different categories showcasing the…

London Tribute show to Michael Jackson

I am not going to discuss the private life of Michael Jackson because I did not know him personally and I do not subscribe to tabloid gossip. However, we did have some friends in common. They were very close to him professionally, and they never saw the “monster” which the media has portrayed, and I take…

Jurassic Park in Portugal ??

I am here in the small town of Lourinhã, which is located about 70 km North of Lisbon. A short distance compared to the mind-smacking ‘time-travel’ I am going to embark. The ignition which sparks this journey begins with some petrified remains known as fossils. Lourinhã is famous for its many dinosaur fossils and back…

Chocolate fair in Lisbon

  The annual fair is hosted at the Campo Pequeno venue, Lisbon. I have been attending this the past few years, but this time around, it seemed much smaller than previously. Nevertheless, some displays were nicely decorated, while others lacked some creativity, overall, it was a little disappointing. Somehow, I felt the audience could just…
