theroyalbreed RUGBY SEVENS FEST LKF HONG KONG

“Those attending the Sevens are upper-middle class expatriate professionals, tourists and foreign-educated Chinese – people who are often seen as outsiders.” -Fermi Wong, Executive Director of Hong Kong Unison Tweet

theroyalbreed SPEED

Visited Zhuhai for the first time and saw the Fishing Girl statue, but that’s for another blog.  The only other thing to see in this city is the Audi Zhuhai International Circuit, designed by Australian company Kinhill Engineers.  4.3km of asphalt with 9 right turns and 5 left turns…if it turns you on.  We got the [...]

theroyalbreed UPSTAIRS @ MERCEDES-BENZ CONNECTION

Tweeting about great food is the norm here, but when we throw it on the blog it’s the exception.  UPSTAIRS on the second floor of Mercedes-Benz Connection in Roppongi is a combination of great food, service and ambience which rarely translates to casual dining these days.  It’s comfortable enough to bring a date, kids or [...]

theroyalbreed PHOTOGRAPHERS

Celebrity photographer Leslie Kee’s “Forever Young” at Hiromi Yoshii Gallery.  Nude male models…not my cup of green tea, not that there’s anything wrong with that.  Had a chance to flip through his beautifully photographed “Love & Hope” book with Ayumi Hamasaki on the cover. Next it was over to Taka Ishii Gallery to check out Larry Clark’s [...]

By using hats [...]

theroyalbreed ANI-COM HONG KONG 2011

I live in Japan and I still can’t quite figure out cosplay but as long as it’s not a middle aged salaryman dressed in a Japanese school girl uniform, it’s all good…not that there’s anything wrong with that.  So a couple hours behind the lens at Ani-Com in the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center [...]

theroyalbreed MONTANA CANS @ TSUTAYA

Our Montana Cans Gold markers have always been a big hit at the Roppongi Hills Tsutaya so when they offered us space for their street art and graffiti display, we started digging out the weapons of mass expression.  Hello My Name Is stickers, blackbooks, 30 and 50mm Hardcore markers, Aluperm markers and…oh look what do [...]

theroyalbreed IPPUDO HONG KONG

Ippudo in Roppongi is one of those places I eat at religiously throughout the year and only on days of divine inspiration when it gets way too hot over the summer.  So I had to try Ippudo Hong Kong when I heard it opened at Silvercord mall in Tsim Sha Tsui.  It’s good but somebody decided [...]

theroyalbreed THE NIGHT BEFORE

Comin’ atcha from Hong Kong.  It’s just so much easier to tweet these days but I admit the flicks taken with an iPhone are pretty crappy.  Anyway our Hats Off Hong Kong exhibition featuring hand painted hats from 78 artists is in its second week at The ONE in Tsim Sha Tsui.  A big thanks to [...]
