Final night of the festival.
Acrobatics high-up in the air by Phoenix's artists.
Night Lights:Divine Trees by Clement Briend from France
William Close Again ^-^
 People were having fun playing with the lighting effects outside SOTA.

These are my favorite shots.
Both are mirrored images (rotated 90 ° clockwise) of cars full of artificial flowers/plants inside. Look like King & Queen from outer space.

SAM was transformed into a giant canvas showcasing the beauty of Mother Nature.

New Books from NOBROW

New books purchased from Nobrow.

London Deco by Thibaud Herem
Dimensions: 240 x 300mm
Extent: 24pp, 3 metre unfurled
Format: Hardback|
Series: Leporello
US$40

Join architectural illustrator Thibaud Herem as on a journey through the streets of London to discover the capital’s most intriguing, striking and elaborate art deco buildings. From imposing Orwellian giants to the hidden jewels of the thirties, Herem takes us on a tour of London’s forgotten Deco landmarks in an art edition of giant proportions. Each faithfully reproduced facade is accompanied on the reverse by a short passage on the building’s history. 

Rise & Fall by Micah Lidberg
Dimensions: 138 x 235mm  |  Extent: 20 panel fold out panorama
Format: Concertina|  |  Series: Leporello  |  Colour: Spot color  |  US$16

The beautiful concertina book folds out to a stunning 136 cm panorama detailing the demise of some of our planet’s most dominant and long standing occupants only to be replaced by another group of breastfeeding placental creatures that would come to reign over the globe millions of years later. Micah’s seamless use of line and adeptness with a limited colour palette recalls the intricate patterns of traditional Japanese kimono design and the murals of 1930s New York Deco in a book that is really more of a work of art, to be coveted and cherished. The nature of the concertina book also means that it is easily displayed on your mantelpiece or shelving unit, and printed on heavy card stock, it will stand the test of time.

Mooncake festival is around the corner.
My colleague K likes to eat moon cake as well.

Thus we came out this fun idea to present the bracelet to her last Tue.  Basically I cut and scooped out the lotus paste from the bottom, leaving the single yolk intact.  The foil-wrapped bracelet was then carefully stuck in.

This moon cake is also served as her birthday cake.

Kill two birds in one stone. ^.^

Lucky Charms




Lucky charms for anyone ?

My gf is having her little business venture at various shopping malls recently. ^_^

Simply choose the beads & a chain (be it leather or metal),  and make your own design.  Voilà!

There are few ready-made for sale too. But for creative folks, making own unique designs are more challenging & fun.









New addition.
