Culture Club

Went out last night to find some culture in this town. First went to the Mobile Art container by Chanel in Central a top the old Star Ferry Car Park. The capsule/building is designed by one of my favorite architects, Zaha Hadid.It’s amazing to see how her conceptual work, done back when I was an architecture student, can be a reality today because of new technologies and materials.

Lisa throwing up her gangster affiliation.

The art inside was ok but the capsule itself was amazing, the crazy shapes and the even crazier spaces it created looked cool juxtaposed against the ol’ Hong Kong skyline.

That’s Leo from Chanel. Darth Vader was there too but I was too scared to papparazzi him. I saw what he did to the admiral.

Afterwards Simon Birch and I headed over the Eddie‘s house for a meal with the boys from 24. I had been hearing how good a chef Eddie was but I wasn’t expecting this level of culinary skills. Look at that spread. It’s a seriously professional set up, Jamie Oliver’s got nothing on Eddie!

Seafood Bouillabaise!

Chilled Crab with a vinnegrette dressing!

Baked Chicken with a pesto dressing. Perfection.

The food was so good it turned us all stupid. Look at Conroy and Phat.

In the end it came down to a vote and the crab one best dish of the night. Very impressive Eddie! I will have to return for another sample of your skills1
