“God Alone Knows”, Damien Hirst : A clever marriage of science and religion; an inventive use of preserved sheep carcasses in this instantly recognisable scene.

Contemporary art has always been somewhat of a hit and miss for me. When the contemporary man has neither time nor patience for frescoes or friezes, art can only seek to shock, intrigue, and scandalise; something to hold your attention just long enough till the next big thing comes along.

Could this be the natural evolution of art or merely symptomatic of our time?

Fell in love many times over with Portugal after spending last September in the Azores (if heaven was a place on Earth, this is it), and there was nothing more comforting than a huge vat of seafood stew at the end of a long hike.

All that goodness from the sea, bubbled with fresh herbs for hours, into this mouthwatering mix to be slurped on its own or enjoyed with the broth-soaked rice.

Why does Portuguese cuisine never get as much attention as its Spanish sister? 🇵🇹

Barbershop by day, and an intimate space where musicians gather to jam by night, we cramped into this tiny space, carefully balancing our glasses of wine while watching the live action from the loft.

Hong Kong never fails to deliver as an urban playground. Eternally awake and always overstuffed, discrete establishments are organically cramped alongside each other and life continually sprouts wherever it can germinate.
