The Macau Taipa library still has no system of filing their books Charles Dickens alongside Slyvia Plath and Dickens… it’s neither time, genre or author based (like most libraries around the world it is filed with a system in alphabetical order of the author’s last name). I picked up the book by chance and based it […]

Taikoo Shing does really cool short term (2 weeks max) exhibitions in the mall and this time, there was an old Hong Kong miniature exhibit by 42 local artists replicating charming old faces of Hong Kong in the smallest scale possible, complete with intricate details, down to the different fonts of the traditional Chinese characters.
