I’ve been meditating more often and regularly these days as I prepare for a 10 day Vipassana retreat in May. I find guided meditations much easier to follow than sitting silently with my own thoughts. Here at Hoca Foundation Hong Kong, the Seoul/Berlin-based artist Jeongmoon Choi incorporates a 30 minutes guided meditation sitting under her […]

Actually somedays, I don’t leave the house. That needs to change and I have to get back into some semblance […]

The final book to Kevin Kwan’s best seller triology, I enjoyed Crazy Rich Asians and Rich People’s Problems best. The denouement moves quick in this final book and is a real page turner. I suppose I particularly enjoyed it for its anecdotal history of the war and Japanese occupation, My late grandmother used to tell […]

It was my first time in Stockholm and at Design Week. I was anticipating a Milano Salone sort of affair with satelite pop ups all over the city and parties and apertivos alongside the main fair.
