Fulfilling Sunday

A fun 2-hours Photogram workshop @Deck

After the workshop, passed by Guan Yin Temple 四马路观音堂. Surprisingly, it was very crowded.  So I just stepped in to pray without joss stick.  My believe is 有心就好.

Interested ?

Fuel My Stomach and Soul

Second time.  Just wanna bring my incredible to this cozy place Fuel Plus+ for some delicacies.

Left with happy stomach and soul indeed.

Don't you dare to close your eyes

Spent last weeknights on this book, Don't Close Your Eyes : Wake;Fade;Gone by Lisa McMann - a trilogy in one single book.

It was quite gripping that I completed each story in a single night, average 6 hours till barely few minutes shy of breaking dawn before I really had to get a decent sleep.

The concept of this series is about getting sucked into other people's dreams. Though some parts are pretty predictable ...... halfway through the first series, I already know Caleb (the male narrator) is a cop and not drug dealer prior the meet-up of his captain with Janie (the dream catcher).  I guessed as much for the last series Gone.

Nevertheless, a satisfying read.

Stormy Afternoon

On Reading, Writing & Living with Books

A lovely little book by Pushkin Press to celebrate 175 years of life at The London Library.

Enjoyed the piece by Virginia Woolf on How Should  One Read a Book?, and journalist Leigh Hunt's My Books.

“The only advice, indeed, that one person can give another about reading is to take no advice, to follow your own instincts, to use your own reason, to come to your own conclusions.” ~ Virginia Woolf

“Yet this little body of thought, that lies before me in the shape of a book, has existed thousands of years, nor since the invention of the press can anything short of an universal convulsion of nature abolish it. To a shape like this, so small yet so comprehensive, so slight yet so lasting, so insignificant yet so venerable, turns the mighty activity of Homer, and so turning, is enabled to live and warm us for ever. To a shape like this turns the placid sage of Academus: to a shape like this the grandeur of Milton, the exuberance of Spenser, the pungent elegance of Pope, and the volatility of Prior.” ~ Leigh Hunt

Books are here to stay.

Cartoon Underground @ kult kafé

A great turnout for #CartoonUnderground 2016 last night.

Of all the screenings, ZEPO by César Díaz Melendez and D: 729 directed by Levi Stoops are my favourites.

Zepo is a crude and dark fictional story inspided by the spanish civil war. Made with sand animation technique.  D: 729, is the tale of a lonely astronaut being sexually attracted to his toothbrush. A story about the impossible combination of someone's deepest desires and the world around him.

Stunning UV face paint by Mi5chief Makers.

Been contemplating to buy a gramophone to play
the vinyls that I have collected for some time .....
but kind of an expensive hobby though
