Aliona’s Interview

01/12/2011, Aliona Doletskaya, Fashion and Style, Moscow

Aliona Doletskaya is the new Editor-in-Chief of the new Interview Russia and the soon-to-be-launched Interview Germany magazine. I’m a HUGE fan of Aliona’s work. She’s a beacon of strength and vision. I always look forward to seeing what she’s doing.

Starlite Diner

30/10/2011, Current Affairs, Food and Drink, Moscow

I know it sounds crazy but I’m one of those people who always go back to the same places over and over again. Maga and I went to Starlite Diner, a Muscovite institution where the young ‘uns go to for that post-clubbing/post-boozing meal. It still looks exactly the same after all these years. The last time I visited this place was roughly around five or six years ago. I went early this time around: early evening (6PM) instead of early in the morning. Don’t ask me why. This geriatric has a one AM self-imposed curfew. Ok two.

I ordered what they call “The Really Big Shawn Burger” — three hundred grams of pure beef patties with chili, cheese sauce, bacon and jalapeno peppers. I’m surprised I didn’t get a coronary from that one. It was insane. I really shouldn’t be eating these things because it’s very bad for the figure — you should’ve seen my face when I (unsuccessfully) tried FOUR jackets at the Céline store in Milan — but best to do this now before my metabolism REALLY slows down.

Turandot Restaurant, Moscow

30/10/2011, Current Affairs, Food and Drink, Moscow

Are you Moscow-bound one of these days? A visit to the amazing restaurant, Tvrandot Palace, is a must. It’s been two years since I last went here. Be prepared for one of those ‘out-of-this-world’ experiences. The restaurant known as Tvrandot has got to have the most excessive and decadent interiors ever.

Me and my dining companions, Patrick and Keith, couldn’t stop giggling at our ostentatious surroundings. After our meal, we took a bunch of photos, pretending we were old hags posing for Hello! Magazine. “Welcome to our gracious home!” It’s a good thing we went there quite late. We were the last patrons who left the restaurant.

In spite of the European decor, I love how the restaurant serves Asian fare — lots of Chinese and Japanese classics. I had a bowl of hot and sour soup followed by a very generous serving of crispy duck, prepared by waiters who wore period costumes. In other words, I basically had Chinese food inside a restaurant that looks like a Fabergé egg. What an experience!

Return To Sender

21/10/2011, Advertorials, Moscow

This month, I’m celebrating seven years of my site, Bryanboy.com. Has it really been THAT long? Internet years are like gay relationship years. And gay relationship years are like dog years; one year = seven years. Hah! As most of you guys know, I started my blog in October 2004 as a travel journal. Three years short of a decade later, I’m back to where it all began: Moscow.

Sunset sky in Moscow, Russia

I took a number of photos during the long ride from the airport yesterday afternoon. Photographer friends tell me the best time to take photos is an hour before sunset because of the light. They call it the ‘golden hour’. Looks like I missed it by a few minutes.
