Vancouver is the new Cool – 天氣又轉涼了,來喝點茶吧!

“天氣又轉涼了,來喝點茶吧” If we say that the new coffee culture is what makes Vancouver the new cool place, let us not forget the Tea. We were so grateful to discover this Tea Bar on a cold day in Vancouver, a life savour, and surely, a breath of fresh air in the new cool. I love the sense of Space and Zen Modernism in here, a long counter-to-stool kind of setup, where you can watch your tea being brewed, I find meditative calmness and inner peace in watching water boil, brewing and pouring into different bowls and decanters. Calm, Relaxing and an interactive experience with the Tea Master. 茶道, 就是品嘗茶美感之道, 是一種烹...

“The Staircase” – Chanel @ Paris

A visit to 31 Rue Cambon. The first arrondissement of Chanel. Mademoiselle Coco Chanel’s apartment and studio. The apartment where she spend most of her time, where she worked and entertained friends, but never slept one night in. Where we see the ever so iconic staircase , “The Staircase” Mademoiselle would check on all the models before they walk down the staircase at her shows. Maybe this was where she said: “Keep your heels, head and standards high” – Coco Chanel “Mademoiselle was famous for watching the défilé (show), sitting out of sight on the stairs and observing the crowd’s reaction through the kaleidoscopic m...
