Celine Cabas Phantom 

Yes it is expensive.  And it’s expensively tempting.  Celine keeps sweeping off our feet.  For the ladies who loves simplicity.  Here’s simple with luxury.


Crowd Lu – "Lonesome. Test."

It’s quite interesting how this super talented Taiwanese singer-songwriter began his music career.  Lu was run over by a bus in his freshman year at university.  Suffered from severe injuries in both legs, he was forced to spend months in hospital and during the time, he picked up the guitar – and started his compositions then.  He wowed the public with his very first album “Good morning, Beautiful Dawn!”, “Lonesome. Test”(寂寞考”) is one of the tracks in this very album.


Hong Kong.  I love Hong Kong. 

It is colorful, energetic, vibrant, full of fun, Hong Kong has always been the city of excitement…not to mention the drastic changes in the past 15 years.  I love the city and I certainly miss the city a lot…therefore it’s so nice to get to read what Michael Crichton once said about the city, “There are few sights as exciting as landing in Kai Tak Airport in Hong Kong at night. The mountains, the water, the lights of the buildings make it magical, like flying into the center of a glowing jewel. I was tremendously excited as I looked out the window. And then to step off the plane and be assailed by the smells — that peculiarly Asian combination of sea water, dried fish, packed humanity — my excitement increased tenfold. And during in a taxi through the city, past the open, brightly lit stalls, people squatting on the pavement, working, all the street life — fantastic! I had never seen anything like this!”

Quoted from “Travel” (1988)

Sweet Corn… Ice Bar? 

It’s basically popsicles, in sweet corn flavour.  Yes, sweet corn.  And there are actual bits of corn in them.  It’s weird, but it works.  

The true boutique hotel 

Hotel Gault, located in the heart of Old Montreal… sometimes I would debate with myself on whether I enjoy Montreal more or Hotel Gault.  You will be fascinated by everything Gault offers to her guests: from its luxury-modern designed rooms, to the impeccable customer service, to the oh-so-fulfilling meticulously prepared brunch.  I would encourage you to find out more on their website, I would encourage even more for you to stay there and experience it yourself.

Chatter of Doomsday Makes Beijing Nervous

If you are reading this, either Asia is all burning and fire is coming at you, or the Doomsday prediction is way off.  China is taking extra precautions, the Beijing government have arrested over 1000 people spreading Doomsday predictions and have branded them as an “evil cult”

French Perle set by Lenox

I used to think I would only get dinnerware in white and white-only. Used to.  And then I saw this turquoise Lenox set.  Ah, the heck with the white-only-minimalism, my minimalism now comes with a little bit of blue.

Shopping for Spring ….2013?

I love shopping for Spring clothes in  February or March, it is still cold out but there is something to look forward to. But is it a bit too early to shop Spring stuff before Christmas? I didn’t even start wearing my down jacket jet here in Toronto. We think not,   1 of my favourite shops is bringing out 2013 SS, so start early, gentlemen.
