Eyespy passes by that screaming-for-attention Gilbert and George mural on D'Aguilar and wonder what's next. Leap of Joy when I saw an email about The Great British Show. We can now get a full dose of YBAs at Fabrik, presenting the works of the most controversial and influential British artists of our generation: Damien Hirst, Francis Bacon, Gilbert and George, and Banksy.
"THE GREAT BRITISH SHOW" Opening today! through Mar 25. 6:30pm-8:30pm
(Capital-W) Work is what we have considered for years: your boss tells you to do something, you do it, and you get paid. By contrast, (little-w) work is motivated by inherent interest and generally unpaid. Think of the difference between an Encyclopedia Britannica editor doing Work, and a Wikipedia editor doing work during spare hours. Big Work drives the economy; little work drives the Internet. Big Work builds skyscrapers; little work generates a half million fanfiction stories about Harry Potter.
2 weeks ago, foodie fanatic texted eyespy the Japanese hype of the month, gourmet "Rah"men shop MIST?(yes, the question mark is deliberate) in the hustle of Causeway. Boasts branches in L.A. and Tokyo with beating the chest awards, I thought this would be a promising bowl of bouncing shio noodles in perfectly barbecued pork slice, optional thumbs up are a moutain of warm corn, pickled radish and japanese onions as a garnish
I think hype, was indeed, "hype". As with many a Japanese eateries, food photos were very very deceiving
Atmosphere was decent. Open kitchen with modern dark wood furniture and red clubber one-seaters perched at each table. Utensils and tissue were kept in a a little pull-out drawer, novel but not inventive.
Lunch time crab amuse bouche was decent but my Shio noodles came out slightly overcooked and lukewarm, pork was incredibly fatty but nonethless, yum but soup base was on the salty side of things. No corn in sight. Very little radish. Dessert was a green tea custard served in a tiny shot glass topped with carnation. I probably ordered the wrong specialty and during the midst of busy lunch hour stampede, I'm not going to tick this restaurant as a been there done that just yet. So 2nd vist - The Karimiso was far more memorable than the others, while the pork salad (boasting, fat, happy, massaged pigs) was great but on the fatty end..
Would I pay HK$100 for another bowl? Probably only when I'm in the neighbourhood. (Sorry, no food photos this time)

Had a turn-around the other day while walking pass this particular billboard. Promising a "sensual" ladies night, Chippendales dancers will be stripping up a storm in the Sands Theatre mid-March. Want more than just an on-stage tease, join the Chippendales afterparty from 10pm till late (!). Did I just spy an invitation to a gigolo soiree? Strange.
Ms Spears does it again! The never-ending tale of the (ex) pop princess continues...this time we don't spot a new beau, newborn, or new shots of Britney knickers-free.
Mommy Spears gathered what's left of her pop-royalty self and posed in front of the lens of master photographers Annie Leibovitz, bad boy Terry Richardson and Michael Seliger, for the new campaign of Candie's Only at Kohl's. Love her or hate her, you've got to dig her perserverance. ...and the campaign looks smokin' hot. See more here
Another serum advertising amazing results? Bah, Boring and common. Yet a vial, hand-delivered in a silver packet with a comment card and a promise of supply replenishment, publicly unavailable and a follow-up phone call pitching spectacular results? That's called marketing. See their launch party here !
Those dream weavers at Clinque sure knows how to get Eyespy excited about being "the first". So I've been spreading 2 pumps of this Brightening Essence, twice a day for about a week now. Results?
Absolutely Phenomenal! Day 1, 1st application - Whatever, just another serum. Bah. Light weight, absorbs quick.Doubting the thickness. Day 2, 3rd application- Noticeable surface change, significantly smoother. Is this for real? Day 4, 8th application - Blemishes disappearing, small bumps evening out. The bf asked "Did you just sign up for some crazy facial package? You are looking radiant!" This is no joke. Day 7, 14th application - not a swipe of concealer or a pat of powder and I am looking like a million dollars! My face is soft like a baby's bum. This vial is my new hero
Do yourself a favour and buy a dream of bright/poreless/radiant skin - debuting in March.
