Instant happiness

This is Sken's last day.
We were having fun with his Fuji instant mini.
Instant photos, instant memories.

Money does not make me happy

Complaining is silly. Either act or forget.
Thinking life will be better in the future is stupid. I have to live now.
Being not truthful works against me.
Helping other people helps me.
Organizing a charity group is surprisingly easy.
Everything I do always comes back to me.
Drugs feel great in the beginning and become a drag later on.
Over time I get used to everything and start taking it for granted.
Money does not make me happy.
Traveling alone is helpful for a new perspective on life.
Assuming is stifling.
Keeping a diary supports my personal development.
Trying to look good limits my life.
Worrying solves nothing.
Material luxuries are best enjoyed in small doses.
Having guts always works out for me.
- Stefan Sagmeister

This is old stuff, but still my all-time favourite.
Always get new inspirations reading it from time to time.
Don't stop believing...

Yes, Design can make you happy.


Lam Man Lung


Hong Kong's music industry is always being so commercial and no love, i was quite surprise when i saw this MV, one of the very few nice music videos from Hong Kong, and funny name too!

Hong Kong's art & design scene is getting more and more interesting in this few years, with more of their popular idols starting aware about the importance of design (although it's also for commercial value). Compare to a designer who is working in the studio 24/7, or creating designer's product and sell to other designer fella, I think their influence and communication to the public is even more direct and major.

Maybe we should consider taking part in next Idol's contest...


Paranoid Portland

I was watching Paranoid Park by Gus Van Sant last week...

“The bridge! I walked over there before! Ha~”
The nice movie reminds me the nice city - Portland. A place that you'll never think of travel to, it is not a heaven for shopping, doesn't have world famous landmarks or nice beaches, islands for getaway.

It's just a moderate, quiet and peaceful little city. I miss that place a lot after watching the movie, hoping that will have chance to get back there sometimes before I die.

By the way the movie is pretty good, still the classic Gus's house of cleanliness, plus Christopher Doyle's cinematography, and some minimal-tech going on as background music.

Really enjoyable, like the city itself. For more Portland Pics :D

the man behind the giant footprints

Just found out the giant footprint's firework for Beijing Olympics
opening is actually done by the world-renowned artist Cai Guo-Qiang.

No wonder!

I was checking back his works, and it is so freaking amazing~
Painting with gun-powder, exploding car installation, the black rainbow, conceptual fireworks and performances. Every single one of them is
a masterpiece.

Although there are a lot of negative critiques about the opening,
but I'm still looking forward for the closing ceremony.

Footprints of History - 2008

Black Rainbow - 2005

Inopportune: Stage One - 2004

'Painting' in progress...

Transient Rainbow - 2002

By the way, i find he looks a bit like our local film director James Lee :D

more stunning pictures of Beijing's Olympics Opening Ceremony.

Finally, the long-awaited moment for all Chinese is arrived...

Has been living under so much pressure and threat by terrorist,
China finally made it, the opening of Olympics'08 is absolutely awesome!
The Fou drums with lights, footprint fireworks, giant scroll's screen on the floor, walking around the illuminated globe, the Tron-like green men, and all the other performances.

I was so amazed!
While we are watching the opening ceremony together in the office, all colleagues stand up and sing along when China's national anthem being played. I can feel their pride for their country. I'm not sure whether I'll do the same when 'Negaraku' being played...

I never see any other Olympics opening ceremony before, but this one is a jaw-dropping one for me... Keep it up dragon~

Homeless bunch in the office.



This is it. The service apartment that I'm staying right now,
function like a hotel, but come with living room, kitchen and so on.

It's pretty big and a bit wasted for one guy. I never have chance to fully occupy the whole space, normally I'll just stick in my own room and facing my laptop... don't even have much time to spent in the living room catching local TV shows.


Good design
