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 […]

So many friends that have come through Macao to visit and surprisingly enjoyed my Junk store exploration adventure. Many asked where I got my vintage treasures in this post where I took my former flatmate and one of my closest friends based between LA and Shanghai (not short of vintage gems) on a mad shopping spree… […]

I chanced upon this while wandering through the alleys to get to my coconut ice cream shop. This little area has transformed with lots of new designer boutiques, art galleries and a super cool sweet store. A little bit of a wonderland in the middle of old local housing, just 50m down from St Paul’s […]

Located in a charming bright yellow art deco style building with a courtyard (you can head […]

This beautiful minimalist boutique with airy, stark interiors and two full racks of pant suits gives off an air of an upscale New York boutique. Are we really in Macau? I know the young hipsters […]

  So, one of the next best thing living in Macao is that we’re just 30 minutes from the border of Zhuhai and about 20 mins to this wonderful furniture wood village in 中山, Zhongshan that sells everything at wholesale cost price made for export and distribution. It’s kind of like a household wonderland with […]

The latest hipster spot in town, the Police Married Quarters turned creative hub is filled with so many wonderful things you’ll leave with an empty pocket. I’m biased and a big fan of my friend Arnault’s Kapok – which has most recently become an empire – having expanded into Taipei and Singapore too, from his […]

Chef used to live here and absolutely love it – I think it’s a little bit of that French colonialism hangover apart from the amazing fruits, nuts and produce you can find here. The weather is always gloriously sunny – although it rained for 3 days when we were there in January! So here’s from […]

Marrakech is one of those magical places you read about in novels full of Arabian mystery and that sense of poetic chaos in the city is that exact same experience as you’re assaulted by lots of colours, sounds and haggling shop keepers. But it’s wonderful. Shopping? You’re spoilt for choice, it’s overwhelming! The medina is […]
