This year’s Food Future Summit in its third year was held at Asia Society – one of my favourite architectural spaces in Hong Kong. A former British military compound used in the production and storage of artillery and ammunition. The future of food looks bright full of animal-free possibilities at Friday’s talks and innovative pop-ups. […]

I contributed to this month’s July 2019 Travel + Leisure Southeast Asia’s Food Issue on where we eat in Hong Kong. It is by no means limited to this list, but I had to cramp everything into 4 full pages with a balance of local, western and fine dining spots. There are many other favourites, […]

Another year, another Art week and more interesting visual treats. I was having a discussion with a designer friend the other day and we see it in fashion and art that there’s a considerable amount of works that just skim the surface without the depth and breadth of concept, construction and artful execution of the […]

I had an amazing history tour of the Happy Valley cemeteries with historian Jason Wordie and cannot recommend it enough. He only does the tours for Hong Kong residents or people who grew up/worked here and have an idea of the city’s geography. So, unfortunately, the depth and breadth that he covers Hong Kong are […]

I’ve been to Test Kitchen twice now – an interesting concept that brings in different chefs to cook for a couple of days. The first was an uneventful dinner by Rice Paper Scissors quite a while back and I didn’t have any desire to to go back since, but my Malaysian friend coaxed me into […]

I’m really looking forward to this year’s event this Sep 21-22 as I missed last year’s Food Summit while I was back in Singapore. I was also in Stockholm earlier this year in February for the Stockholm Design Week and sussing out their sophisticated recycling/composting system and culture. The two day line up organised by […]

It was my first time at Rise this year. What a great line up of speakers, exhibitors on the latest tech innovations. Also, noted the efforts at making the event a more sustainable and pleasant one – metal cutleries in the media village, wooden biodegradable cutleries at the eateries and recycling stations that carefully separated […]

This is probably the highlight of my 2018 as I mindfully try to live a leaner life of less waste and trying in my personal capacity to avoid plastic use as much as possible. A massive inspiration run by my friend T is All in Asia, follow them for interesting nuggets and tips to live […]

I have to admit I have little clue where to eat in Kowloon. My friends come here often for breakfast Thosai, and recommended I try their pretty tasty South Indian vegetarian food. This set lunch was a bunch of everything – lentils, chickpeas, okra, pickled vegetables over a spiced pea rice and naan. Delish. This chain […]

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 […]
