Shopping in Kyoto

Posted on February 20, 2013 by Toothpicker

My last Kyoto blog entry is on shopping...
Since I spent much of the time in the rural area exploring temples and gardens, there was barely time for shopping. The day before I left for Tokyo, I went into the city centre during the late afternoon and spent a few hours exploring the [...]

Kiosk & shops in NYC

Posted on October 22, 2012 by Toothpicker

Quite a few years ago, I discovered the independent concept store, Kiosk, located in Tribeca, NYC. I love the concept of showcasing and selling a range of products sourced during their travels from all over the world in a rotating exhibition format. The sourced products are mostly everyday objects that reflect the [...]

Popup design shop

Posted on June 26, 2012 by Toothpicker

I can't say that I have been very aggressive ( it's not so natural for me) in promoting the e-shop since the launch about 8 months ago. I am still learning, trying things out and finding my feet in the competitive world of e-tailing.
Since the East London design show in Dec, I [...]

Souvenir from Thailand

Posted on June 10, 2012 by Toothpicker

Delicious, functional or junk? It's time to review the items I bought from Thailand, starting from the edibles:
Lemongrass tea - I love lemongrass tea, not only does it smell good, it also tastes very refreshing. It is natural and full of antioxidants: it is detoxifying, good for digestion and can lower high [...]

MUJI & Naoto Fukasawa

Posted on March 10, 2012 by Toothpicker

As soon as I heard that Naoto Fukasawa (Japanese product designer and advisor for MUJI) will be in town to give a talk at the Design Museum, I booked the ticket immediately knowing that it will be sold-out event (and I was right). I have always liked his minimalist designs i.e. his [...]

F-Troupe

Posted on January 14, 2012 by Toothpicker

 
Apart from essentials, I rarely shop for fashion items these days. As someone who used to work in fashion and a shopaholic, I accumulated so much 'stuff' over the years that I simply ran out of room(s) to fit them all.
