I’m launching a new project on Kickstarter and here’s the Press Release: Paying Tribute to Hong Kong’s Markets with Graphic Design A unique poster series celebrates the disappearing street markets of Hong Kong A unique poster series celebrates the street markets of […]
Back in August of this year, a RISD friend invited me to one of their alumni events here in Hong Kong. It was called “Word Jamming” at Wai Che Printing Company (伟志印务公司) — translation is “great aspiration printing company” — and we went to visit the old, Chinese print shop in Sheung Wan. At Wai […]
I traveled back to the US for a few weeks this fall and had sincere encounters with reverse culture shock! I’ve been living abroad for over 2 1/2 years now (how time flies!). And it was over a year since I had been back to the US. I’m keeping this post straightforward — so here […]

The subway car I normally ride.
As you’re all aware, community involvement is core to our philosophy here at Design Museum Boston, and we’re not alone.

Finally testing out the WP app…
A couple weeks ago I attended the photo exhibit by Liam Fitzpatrick, titled “Kinky Vicious”, showcasing his panoramic iPhone photos with a focus on Hong Kong’s harbor.

I returned to HK yesterday from another trip to Xining, China… and looking forward to a pizza lunch in Central. It’s been a while since I’ve had American food (though it seems that’s all I write about)! This is just a quick update to share what I’ve been writing for VeggieWala. Check out a few things […]
**The following is a bit of self-reflection, ranting, sentimental thinking, and whatever else is in my train of thought. You’ve been warned.** A year has passed. I’m a year older. And I’ve moved to another city. A lot happens in one year. A friend passed. Old friendships continue to grow, other friends have drifted, and […]
Recently, I’ve actually been eating a lot of humus! Haha, proof with the newest snippet of my contribution to VeggieWala: I recently took another trip to Hong Kong and encountered a pleasant and tranquil surprise. In the middle of one of the world’s most international financial capitals and densely populated cities is The World Peace Cafe […]
I posted about Goods of Desire in the past and here’s another great little take away that they’ve launched. It’s a great way to take a bit of Hong Kong home with you. Part of what makes the travel experience is the “charm”, character, and uniqueness to a place. These small souvenirs from GOD address […]
I was going through some old magazines and travel guides, coming across this article of 30 must visit places in Hong Kong. Check out my previous post on Shanghai Tang. And I have really only been to a handful of these places listed in my many visits to Hong Kong; I’m ashamed… Which is your […]
Pop-up shops are really starting to catch on. One of my favorite, local Hong Kong shops, Goods of Desire has opened a pop-up shop at the Peak in Hong Kong with some pretty sweet deals. Let me know if you have a chance to check it out and find something good!
