During my trip to Beijing, my friend brought me to a boutique hotel located in Sanlitun. Prior to the visit, I only remember Sanlitun as a place with stretches of dingy bars. I was pleasantly surprised by the unique Sanlitun Village, which is a really cool shopping experience. In between this “Village” was The Opposite House 瑜舍, a boutique hotel developed by Hong Kong based company Swire Hotels.

It’s a bit hard to realise that you just stepped into a hotel because the reception “lobby” looks like the above. The Chinese porcelain art pieces on the right are by Chinese artist Li Xiaofeng.

I found out from a friend about this only agnès b gallery opened outside Paris. Located at Wing Fung Street, which is part of the Star Street Precinct, and a short walk out of an exit from Admiralty MTR Station, the gallery showcases contemporary art works and is refreshed on a regular basis.

The gallery currently on display (till 7th May 2011) is named “Rezzak Coiffure”, by French Artist Franck Rezzak.

The T SpotThis may come across as random since my Italy trip was way back in summer this year. I was organising my photos for the year and came across pictures taken at the Triennale Design Museum, which I had intended to share with everyone here but somehow never got down to do so.

Some might regard Milan as a rather boring city of Italy. It is kinda true, Milan is a fashion capital and probably the only signature place of interest is the Duomo Cathedral. If you ever visit Milan, and you’re getting sick of seeing labels after labels, I suggest you make a trip down to the Design Museum at Parco Sempione.

Exhibits at one of the exhibitions on “What is Italian design?”. Technically, no photography is allowed in the exhibition.

MOCA was a must-go place in my itinerary for Shanghai. I have never visited a modern art exhibition in China and was eager to experience that.

This picture was taken at People’s Park (人民公园). Love the brown hues of the trees. I was wearing my S$60+ dollars houndstooth coat from Sarah Jessica Parker’s Bitten label. Ebay rocks!

Inside MOCA. The exhibition was titled “Animamix Biennial 2009-10: Metaphors of Un/Real”.

With one of my favourite exhibits, “Shanghai Garden” by Jun T. Lai. Made from acrylic.

Yummy! This is by Osamu Watanab, untitled.

I think I hear you… “We can be heroes, just for one day” by Cao Hao.

The exhibition ends on 31st January this year. Entrance fee is 20RMB. It was a pity that some of the exhibits, including that of Singapore’s Phunk Studio, were not on display yet when I visited.
