About Me


Settle in Japan for a while


Aloha! My name is Arlow and I live in Tokyo, precisely in Shimokitazawa. I'm originally from Montreal (Quebec, Canada)! I just finished my master and ended my career as a customs officer for the Canadian Border Services.

I love partying and getting people together, either by throwing a party or inviting everybody to have dinner at my place ! *EHEM* I know how to make the best cocktails. I love cooking (people say my risotto is ep.i.c) and trying new restaurants. Recently, I've been interested in photography.

In short: easygoing, love to party, music snob and foodie maybe, un peu intello, always planning my next trip somewhere !

...Je suis francophone, alors ne soyez pas trop dur avec mon anglais :P


Life is all about goodbyes

Music, Movies, and Books

Favorite movie, probably Casablanca!

Music is something I couldn't live without. I'm really into electro and hiphop right now, but I love listening to other things (indie rock, jazz, classic, reggae and ska...) and discovering new artists... Kendrick Lamar, Bonobo, Jon Hopkins, Toots and the Maytals, The Nationals, Schoolboy Q, Flume, Moderat, The Weeknd, Daft Punk, The XX, Arcade Fire...

Favorite book, maybe 100 years of solitude, or A Song of Ice and Fire

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

When I was working as a customs officer, I met many celebrities crossing the border. My favorite encounter would be the infamous rapper Riff Raff: funny as hell!!
