See photography of the Making here Shortly after I launched Short Stays, a film project I commissioned three of some of China’s most talented young film directors to make films in-House, working with equally amazing Chinese photographers Madi and 223 to document the […]


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 more […]

The last time I ate here at Migas Beijing, was when the restaurant first opened during the winter when I was still living in Beijing. Chef Aitor is doing amazing things here, working with lots of local produce and we got to taste what he was experimenting with. Good news is he’s also coming to […]

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 […]
