Our Story

From a place where two cultures collide
The faraway land of a culinary goldmine

A soul-soothing cup of tea,
A cocktail of everything extraordinary

She comes packing stories of wonder
In search of sharing her experiences with others

Of exquisite taste and timeless style
She treasures the unrepeatable moments of life

For every moment is a chance to live
For every moment is for her to seize

She revels in conversations with strangers at a bar
She sways to the symphony of laughter in a crowd

She’s got the ingredients to cook up a storm
There’s never a dull moment with her around

With a captivating touch of mystery
She shows you how to enjoy life in all its glory
