To Fathom The Shopping Habits

Posted by on Nov 4, 2014 in Fashion | 0 comments

Life offers to us the chores and also little things we enjoy. Shopping is one of those little things. It is up to us to make it a chore, a source of anxiety or of a marital discord. But…there are circumstances, when this little joy could be killed by the background noise of the relationships and “its complicated”☺ matters. I would only try make an attempt to generalise what I know, the cultures I am familiar with. Generalisation assumes a bias...

SEOUL FASHION WEEK – LOST IN TRANSLATION?

Posted by on Sep 29, 2014 in Fashion | 0 comments

When we first visited Korean Fashion Week in Seoul in 2009, the experience was similar to Taipei Fashion week of 2014, with the only exception that Seoul is a major hub city in the world, and Taipei is more provincial and quaint.

My eyes start seeing red, and as far as my muscles are...

The 24th of June, 7pm, Current Affair,  Channel Nine: “The Shopping Revolution Heading Down Under”. I am not a Current Affair viewer, but what the heck?
