By Lewis Clark | Published 2016/01/04

So you’ve been proclaiming that you are going to study Chinese for a while now. How long has it been? One month? One year? One decade? It’s no easy task to learn a language of tones and characters, and you know that, which is probably why you’ve been putting it off. But one day you’ll […]

Level Up Experiences: VIBE Review
By Lewis Clark | Published 2015/10/07

  I’ve always been a fan of meeting new people. I think it’s because it’s NEW! New stories, new dialogue, new opinions, new tastes that are trending in culture. The rush I get from meeting new people is similar to the rush travel junkies have. I crave it. I swear by it. Why Do I […]

Art² – The Double Square Gallery
By Chris | Published 2015/05/18

我有去過很多藝廊,藝術展覽,藝術表演,等等。每一個藝術活動都擁有自己的風格與魅力,但我還是覺得多數都缺乏一個關鍵的因素:就是多樣性,不只是少了多種媒介,也沒有展示很多藝術類型。

不過,最近有一家新開的藝廊引起了我的主意。

Happy Birthday to me! There’s only one thing I like better than a steak dinner, and that’s a steak dinner prepared in a wood-fired stove and cooked to perfection. If you are the kind of person, like me, who craves the taste of meat in a primal sort of way, then there is one fine-dining […]
