    What I learn about fashion in the 90s from Pretty Woman

    There’s no better way to look at the history of fashion than watching movies. Whatever appears in a movie must be well planned and selected, so nothing can go wrong. It was an evening last week I watched the classic romantic comedy, Pretty Woman, that I learned what the real fashion in the 90s was like. […] Read more…

    I wish there was a style called “cycle chic” in Hong Kong

    Except for some districts in New Territories like Shatin, Taiwai and Taipo, you barely see Hong Kong people riding in bicycles. The city is never a cycle-friendly one as the roads are always overloaded by thousands of privates cars, minibuses, big buses and even trams. If not occupied by cars, Hong Kong’s flat lands are […] Read more…

    Doing makeup at subway

    It’s not an exaggeration that Hong Kong people’s daily schedule is crazily packed: ten hours of work, lunch appointments, after-work apero, sumptuous dinner and late-night internet surfing on Facebook and YouTube. But all these seem not to be enough; even during commuting time the city’s women tend to spend their entire subway ride on doing […] Read more…

    Escape to the big ocean and sandy beach: Maldives

    I didn’t know the concept of “escape” until I travelled to Maldives, the tropical destination made of over a thousand islands near the Indian Ocean. Living in Hong Kong where daily lives are filled with noises, stress and skyscrapers, I always wondered what it was like to be in a place where all the above […] Read more…

    Brunching in Hong Kong isn’t about food, but fashion

    After a busy week of work and the weekend comes, it’s easy for everyone in Hong Kong to wallow in a sweet coma – sleeping for 10 hours until late morning on Saturday morning.

    What dumplings and fashion have in common

    Dumplings might be just another dish in any Asian cuisines, but it can hook to something every modern human being cares about: the “f” word. We call that “fashion”. Yet it’s not about referencing any stylish or extravagant Chinese or Japanese restaurants that offer tiny plates of delicate-looking thin-skin dumplings, with a resplendent ceramic sauce […] Read more…
