Hookah Brother Up – Kayan Shisha Cafe

Kayan-Shisha-Lounge

I smoked my first Hookah/Shisha about two years ago and I started off as doing it with friends at home but now I’ve gone from at home get togethers to actually checking out hookah lounges around the Vancouver area since I’ve become somewhat of a “professional” with this smoking utensil.

Foldboat - boat that folds

Here’s something you don’t see every day, a real working boat that can be folded and unfolded just like the paper boats we used to make when we were kids.  The boat is called Foldboat (obviously) and is the brainchild of British designers Max Frommeld and Arno Mathies.  The idea for the Foldboat came during […]

The Hobbit wasn’t the most painful novel I’ve ever read, but it certainly holds one of the top spots on my “Horrible Books to […]

LifeStraw Personal Water Filter

LifeStraw portable water filter used in Africa

I often go for long hikes in the summer and most of the time I either forget to bring water with me or don’t bring enough.  Luckily, living in a city whose surrounding are basically a rainforest means there is always water available in small streams and lakes, but drinking that water might not sit […]

Well hello there, men! It’s a new year and I’ve crawled back out from under the soul crushing weight of the rocks that make up an avalanche comprised of web design and wedding planning and any number of things that most guys hope they can put off for an extended period of time. On the […]
