This would have made a great film for the food and culture anthropology class I teach at the hospitality school IFT Macao. Chef Peng, the guy who invented the dish passed away earlier this month, and the documentary digs deep with historians and food writers like Fuchsia Dunlop and Jennifer Lee (who wrote another great […]

I think I first discovered Douglas Coupland’s books in university when I was borrowing books from the National Library in Singapore really often. I’ve read quite a few of them and revisited his books when I was living in Beijing and craving for English fiction. His writing style is simple and fluid and the narratives […]

I had thought it’d be interesting rewinding dating pre mobile era and present day with […]

Less is more, we hear it all the time from design aesthetics to presentation content. But the same applies to daily life necessities and I’ve been working hard to let go of stuff, feelings, people who don’t/no longer serve any purpose, but instead drag out all drama and issues.
