What Charlotte Tsuei, founder of athleisure and lifestyle store Caelum Greene, brings on her escapes.
CT : Minimalistic, smart and at times, quirky.
WHAT TO WEAR
CT : For tropical getaways, I always pack a clean crisp white cotton shirt with denim shorts, a couple of light silk dresses, bikinis, sandals, workout gear (from Caelum Greene, of course) and a light shawl or sweater for chilly nights.
CT : Manduka travel yoga mat, organic sunscreen and sunglasses.
CT : A pair of killer white sneakers from Veja that doesn’t kill the environment.
CT: Chloé Eau de Parfum.
CT : A good diet! I start my morning with a cup of hot water with lemon to flush the digestive system and rehydrate the body.
CT : As much as I love bodywork, I’m not a big spa girl. ‘Me’ time is simply downtime alone at home with some candles and music playing in the background. I’m either doing a yoga practice, reading or cooking.
CT : It is the ultimate experiential learning. I learn something new about myself after every trip.
CT : Amanpulo in Palawan. My husband and I stayed there a few months ago and our villa was right on the beach. In the morning, we’d walk onto this stunning white sand beach, go for a quick dip and snorkel with sea turtles. As it’s a private island, there’s no light pollution and perfect for stargazing at night and learning about the constellations. The service at the resort is impeccable. I love that you get your own golf buggy. Finally, Elmer, the resident trainer certainly knows what he’s doing. I felt toned just from training with him every day for a week!
CT : Bali is my all-time favourite, but right now, I’m very much looking forward to my expedition to Raja Ampat early next year.
CT : La Plage Keller in Antibes. It’s a chic little restaurant on a private beach along the French Riviera. Every time I go, I have to get the bouillabaisse. The seafood broth is rich and flavourful, yet light enough for summer evenings.
DESERT ISLAND PICK
CT : A flying carpet.
