Headed over to La Bodega, Bangsar Shopping Centre on 4 September 2014 with for the Marqués de Murrieta wine tasting. Marqués de Murrieta originated in 1852, when Luciano Murrieta y García-Lemoine produced the first Rioja fine wine and exported it overseas for the first time in the region’s history. The product was successful in the market and this encouraged him to purchase the Ygay Estate and build up the emblematic Ygay Castle. It was not until 1983 when Vicente Cebrián Sagarriga, Count of Creixell, took over the business. Marqués de Murrieta has been run by his children Since his sudden death in 1996, and has been exporting fine Spanish wines ever since.

Hot/ Crazy Matrix

I came across this YouTube video and thought I’d share it with you as it found it quite amusing, funny and disturbingly true (especially the way women regard us men).

Anyone spotted any unicorns? Don’t forget to catch it!

I seem to have the unfortunate luck of meeting girls who more often than not display a lot of crazy attributes. Some manage to hide it initially but eventually it will come out. Do share your experiences in the comments box below. I’d love to hear your stories.
