Weekend that was

1 09 2014

It was a low-key weekend – Saturday swimming, sleeping and running before heading out for dinner with a friend in town from Taipei and drinks with his friend-of-friend, an Aussie-Nigerian rapper from Radelaide (!!!!)

Sunday was spent on the couch, in underwear, watching Project Runway, reading Daphne Du Maurier’s ‘Rebecca’ and watching rain sweep in over the straits between Pok Fu Lam and Lamma.

Fresh from her triumphant Blonde 2 Be Wild concert, Gene Kasidit is back with new single – and blonder than ever!

Louis and I went to this weird crab restaurant in Kennedy Town this week, decorated with alienesque exo-skeletons. The staff kept us waiting ages for our sushi and then when it arrived, nagged us like us old aunts to tell us were weren’t allowed to dip it in the soy sauce….



Cai Guo-Qiang’s Animal instinct

1 09 2014

A few years ago I was amazed to see (online) artist Cai Guo-Qiang’s 99 flying wolves for the piece “Head On”.

Last year he returned with another stunning installation in – of all places, Brisbane. “Falling Back to Earth” – a surreal lagoon surrounded by 99 animals drinking, was staged as part of the city’s impressive Asia-Pacific Triennial of Contemporary Art (an event which Monocle magazine claimed had landed the city for the first time on the world cultural calendar).

Certainly, this piece is impressive.

Some images from the (truthfully not-very-inspiring) “Gazing at the contemporary world” exhibition of modern Japanese photography currently on at the Hong Kong Arts Centre in Wanchai.

I did like this quote though.
