Bamboo Jungle Trek

While in the Jungle House Lodge in Thailand, my family and I went on a jungle hike with our amazing guide Kim. He took us throughout the national park and brought us to the riverbed where he made a fire and served us tea, coffee, and hot chocolate using solely bamboo. Then, he proceeded to make noodle soup and corn over the fire and sliced up mango t o put on a serving plate made of bamboo. He made cups, bowls, spoons, and even showed us how to use a slingshot.

Boating in the Rain

On our Family trip to Thailand, we spent one night in a hut along the water in the middle of nowhere. Felt like a step up from camping in Algonquin but a little less than car camping. On our way back from the trip, we were boating for about an hour through the rain and it was a lot of fun. We had to stop along the sides of the riverbank because the winds were strong enough to tip the boat.


Check out some pictures here from this amazing journey:

Elephants in Thailand

During my trip to Thailand during the month of May in 2016, my family and I travelled to an elephant retirement park in the outskirts of Chang Mai. They adopt elephants that have been abandoned or mistreated by their owners and give them a safe and healthy environment as I have experienced.  We spent the day swimming, bathing, massaging and feeding Asian elephants of all sizes. Made some new friends from all over the world and reminisced in the beauty of these animals.

Here are some of the pictures of this amazing experience:

Manta Restaurant Identity


In my experience with children of all ages, they really like animals; in particular aquatic animals. so I did a little bit of research and I believe that the Manta Ray would be perfect to represent a restaurant. It is a dangerous and rare animal as well as a majestic and appealing animal to young children. For these reasons families and young professionals would be attracted this idea of relating to the theme itself and feel at home. The colours depend on who we wish to attract. I believe that we can either stick to a red, grey, and black colour scheme to portray strength and organisation, or we can go towards the more childish colours of blue, green and black to represent the ocean and the habitat where the Manta Ray lives. For typeface, I was thinking of sticking with a sans-serif font to portray the simplicity of the restaurant and the elegance that it has. The pattern would capture the habitat of the animal representing waves of the ocean such as spirals or dotted waves. This can allow the restaurant to be more kid friendly and open up the design possibilities as well.
