Posted on January 5, 2017 by Toothpicker

 
Paris is renowned for its world-class museums and galleries, yet it also has many quirky museums that are off the beaten track, and Musée des Arts Forains is one of them. This private museum opened in 1996 and it is located within the Les Pavillons de Bercy, the 19th century wine warehouses built [...]

Capturing autumn colours

Posted on November 8, 2015 by Toothpicker

Hampstead heath
 
This autumn, we have had some beautiful sunny days with vivid blue sky in London, therefore I couldn't resist taking the time off (during the week) to enjoy nature in this bustling city. And I didn't have to go far since Hampstead Heath is the sanctuary for nature in London.

Posted on May 8, 2015 by Toothpicker

I have been using Instagram on and off for a while now, but on this trip to Asia, I decided to use Instagram as the main social media outlet. It has been fun, but also slightly addictive.
I think Hong Kong is a beguiling city to be photographed; and during my stay, I [...]

Although I am not a big fan of mega art fairs, I would support smaller art fairs and independent artists who may not be represented by galleries. These fairs also provide an opportunity for visitors [...]

Silent walking weekend

Posted on September 23, 2014 by Toothpicker

 
As a keen hiker/walker, I have joined various walking groups and did many day hikes/walks out of London in recent years. Walking aside, these groups are sociable and provide opportunities to meet and mingle with other walkers who live in London.
Lately, however, I find some group leaders overly keen to get [...]

Contemporary Chinese culture at The Floating Cinema

Posted on August 7, 2014 by Toothpicker

It's not an exaggeration to say the 'dilemma' that faces many Londoners is not the lack of entertainment/consumption choices, but the overwhelming of choices available. And when it comes to cultural events, we are just spoiled for choice and it's hard to keep up even if you are subscribed to hundreds of [...]
