I love Thailand and always happy to be back in Bangkok to catch up with old friend Tib, who is the amazing ice cream designer behind Icedea. You MUST check it out if you’re in the area, stop by for ice cream after visiting the exhibitions. The Bangkok Arts and Cultural Centre or BACC is […]

This place is the rage these days since it’s recent re-opening, a new seamless retail concept of “presenting a story rather than just products”. The interiors by Japanese interior design firm Nendo is stunning. While retail flow spaces aren’t novel – Lane Crawford in Hong Kong does a great job, but Nendo’s modular signature style […]

Despite the cold and dreary weather in Brittany, we trudged out to Port Guilvinec to watch the ships come in with their daily catch and met the fishermen who sorted the fish before it gets organised for export – making it out here in Asia to the Michelin starred restaurants in Hong Kong and Macau.

We stumbled upon this lovely shop I Like Paper in Kreuzberg, true to its name and raison d’etre – stock full of paper items from watches to mobile phone covers, wallets, mini wallets and passport holders. What I loved best is that it’s all handmade on the spot! I couldn’t resist getting a paper watch (or […]

Brought this back from Berlin for the husband and it seems to be a big hit with everyone. I got this at Promobo Design shop at Hackesche Höfe – a gift shop haven with emerging European designers. What I loved about their concept is they set aside shelves for local and emerging European designers to display […]
