A hazy winter’s day on Lantau island

Me: I feel like I’m stuck on HK island, never even been to Lantau since I’m here..
Ana: WHUT?! You never been to Lantau island?
Me: Nah, I don’t wanna go by myself, and fools are either too busy or too lazy to go.
Ana: OK, Monday first thing: Trip to Lantau.
Me calling up Vince: Yo I need to borrow your Nikon D60 for a day.

Muito obrigado, Ana :)

Roxy Cottontail + Kraftwerk in Hong Kong

The lovely Roxy Cottontail made her way from NYC to HK last weekend to spin a guest set at our monthly clubnight extravaganza PIMPIN’ AINT EASY!

Much love to the Cottontail for sweetening our weekend!
Roxy was all smiles all the time and enjoyed HK a lot. We want you back, Rox!!
Also, ze German electro pioneers Kraftwerk were in town on the same weekend for their HK debut.

Heres me, sandwiched between NYC’s and HK’s premiere female selectas,
minutes before the Kraftwerk show:
Roxy Cottontail & DJ Miss Yellow

Without Kraftwerk, hip hop, electro and everything related wouldn’t be the same today, so fools better reckognize. Finally seeing those legends live was Goosebump material.

Unfortunately, Enso and I had to leave early to set up the soundsystem and open the doors at CLIQ, since this month’s PaE was also the inofficial Kraftwerk Aftershow party. We even managed to squeeze in some powernaps on the train to central.

The club got packed and wild quickly as Enso and I were heating things up for Roxy.

She came, saw, conquered, played an amazing set and kept the people dancing until sweat was dripping from the Chandelier.

Miss Yellow worked the mic and made me cuss in Cantonese to the crowds delight,
before she hit the decks for a dope and solid surprise set.

Stay tuned for the complete picture gallery, to be online soon.
Our in-house photo wizard Kit Tang did an amazing job, as always.
Much love and thanks to Kit, Roxy and Miss Yellow!
And to everyone coming out that nite!

Counter feet

I just got back from the Hells Bananas Gang Biker Bar Blowout in Shanghai.
Shit was crazy. It’s been mad fun, and we had Shanghai’s premier nightlife photographer
Charlie Xia take pictures of the night, to be online soon.

Many thanks, Charlie! And many many thanks to El “California Roll” Nomo and
Kami “Rebel without a” kaze for making this happen and for inviting me.

I’ll have to hold y’all back for a while until I can post the pic gallery.

So meanwhile, I have a treat of another kind for y’all. While shopping for bandanas, leather vests/gloves and sunglasses for the Biker Bar Blowout, I managed to gather a nice lil’ collection of pics with counterfit sneakers and other hilariousities at one of Shanghai’s countless street markets.

First up, the sneakers department.

Wouldn’t you love a boxfresh pair of Conrevs Allsports™?
Here’s some more gems:

Would you buy your cellphone in a meat store?
Or vice versa?

Or get a nice, clean shave with a brand nu Gilheney?

Christmas gifts, anyone? I’d suggest one of these.
Longevity Tortoise is definitely on top of my wishlist.

How bout the most comfortable notebook you have ever run into:

Stay tuned for pics from Hells Bananas.
I have to dedicate myself to my new notebook now.
I feel like writing with it all the time.
