I wasn’t aware that the building opened end of 2016, it still looks incredibly new and foot traffic was still relatively light over the recent Shenzhen Design week. Incredibly high ceilings make the exhibition space vast. Possibly the absence of columns also makes for an airy spacey feel one commonly associates with airports. The taxi […]

 Apart from plenty of options to eat around Macao, if hitting the casino isn’t in your interest, there are still lots of things to do for entertainment. The Shrekfast (breakfast with Shrek) and the Dreamworks crew has sadly ended its five year run this October – a family activity favourite. Now you can have breakfast […]

Photo: Just your regular weekend in Beijing going to UNESCO sites for a walk, either go out to the Great Wall for a hike with champagne in my backpack and sandwiches or the temple of heaven which still remains one of my favourite places. Lots of local eats close by and a market selling lots […]

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… […]

Just catching up on my last Beijing trip. My Singapore entries are still sitting in the pipeline, so please bear with me… as there are more delightful things on Paris coming up as well! I’m in Beijing at least twice a year to catch up on the scene there and clearly it’s never enough time […]

Tribe Beijing : What a pleasant surprise to find the scene brightening up with homegrown organic food – with a selection of gluten free baked options and green juices made à la minute. I’ve been out of the scene for a while, but the young lady who served me told me they’ve just been opened […]

No longer a new spot in ever changing Beijing, Pho Laboratory is hidden in a row of run down little houses in Sanlitun. The 20-seater has beautifully simple, industrial chic interiors done up by their architect proprietor. The Vietnamese coffee hits the spot and the noodles – well isn’t anything to write home about, but it’s […]
