Hong Kong has a number of large art events year around. The largest of those are the Hong Kong International Art Fair (see my visits in 2009 and 2011) and then there’s Art Basel. For some unexplained reason I managed to skip the previous Basels in town, but somehow managed to find the time to […]

But, alas, no photography is allowed inside, so you’ll have to go see it yourself. What I was able to capture after the Bruce Lee exhibition was […]

Promised myself I wouldn’t, and I almost made it. Almost. But last week when I was visiting the Hong Kong Culture Centre and walked the Avenue of Stars I saw it.

Clockenflap Music Festival 2011 : Hong Kong

Did I already mention Hong Kong’s Clockenflap Music Festival was brilliant? Yeah, time to show you a bit of what went on.     Aside from the lovely Helen Feng and Nova Heart, I saw a few music performances (though sadly only documented a couple), and spent long hours …

Clockenflap 2011 - HK (84).JPG

I’m impressed. Honestly, I wasn’t expecting this. Hong Kong’s Clockenflap festival was a blast. Almost all of the performances I saw were absolutely brilliant and there were lots of good surprises with regional and international bands that got me searching for their music and mentions online long after the festival was over.   …

Tin Hau Fire Dragon Mid Autumn Festival 2011 (16).JPG

Consider me a real Hong Kong local. I have not missed a single year of the Tin Hau Fire Dragon dance and the Victoria Park (Causeway Bay) Mid Autumn Lantern Festival since I arrived in Hong Kong (2009 ; 2010). In my humble foreign perspective there’s little that captures the local Hong Kong culture more […]
