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 […]

I first got acquainted with Vasconcelo’s work in Venice at the Venezia Biennale Arsenale in 2005 when I first moved to Italy. I didn’t realise 10 years later, it was also that same conversation art piece that was her big step into the International art world. Her motivations, inspirations and views on feminism, the role […]

You’ve probably read loads of articles on the best to see and the best curated list to get through in four days. Here’s my humble take on my own personal favourites. I didn’t take as many photos because I wanted to focus on the art, rather than living the experience behind my illuminated screens. Here […]

Well, you’ve probably read so many variations of what to do outside of casinos, but here’s my take living here as I continue to discover this weird and wonderful place.

Nothing better than some handmade beauties for your home. Have a look at Kristina Mar’s site, lovely stuff. Albergue SCM is organising this workshop is for […]

The flight from Hong Kong direct to Seoul is only 3.5hrs, unfortunately for me direct flights from Macau were all fully booked, so I had to fly via Hong Kong which took me a good 12 hours of commute. Welcome to the life of the international traveller out of Macau. Few people I know travel […]

I haven’t quite made sense of the erratic line up of the Macau Arts Festival Programme 2014. Some shows like Wild Rice’s all male cast performance of The importance of being Ernest was brilliant as was Japanese artist Hiroaki umeda’s detailed precision (but people in front row seats left before interval and the rest slept […]

   Great solo show of Yayoi “polka dot” Kusama’s A dream I dreamed. I wish it was  a little better organised as there were long winding queues to enter the “Infinity mirrored room – gleaming lights of the souls” which I call the intergalactic trip room.
