Photos: Walls

I took these a few months ago but wanted to post it up as I clean out photos in my phone. 

I really do love murals. Growing up, I would watch my sister paint murals in her high school back in Long Beach. Back in the Philippines, I would crave just to find some street art hidden around the city… Now, I like to show people from other parts of the world how the walls in Hong Kong can also look like… Yes, I roam the streets quite often just with an open eye.

Speaking of my recent Japan trip…

Time passed too fast but at the same time, too slow. Where 15 hours could feel like only 5 minutes had gone by, and 5 minutes could feel like it’s been 15 hours…

I find it effortless and non-intimidating for me to jump in and out of this realm. I needed a break from Hong Kong, and the many multiple worlds that exist within this world prove that there is always something new to discover…uncover…recover…

Til next time.

Photos: Tech In Asia Tokyo Recap

TIA

Catching up with a few of my posts today. Here’s a look at our adventure in Tokyo last September, when we (The Digital Vandal) attended Tech In Asia Conference (TIA). It was only Amanda and me on this trip this time unlike the other trips we’ve had for our app. We had a booth on the second day of TIA, and the rest of the time was spent meeting people and attending talks.

I realised something within my own journey in tech conferences, that not only have I perfected key “pitching” strategies, but I have also mastered my energy levels and can perfectly schedule the times when I’ll need caffeine. I’m like a Jedi-Master I tell ya.

But anyway, what’s not to love about Tokyo? I love getting lost here. I’ll be posting more about this trip but here’s a look at some photos from the conference after the jump.

Rise & Grind

Here are some photos from the Rise Convention that The Digital Vandal attended last July in Hong Kong. The entire team from Singapore flew in for this, and it was a busy few days of meeting other start-ups, investors, speakers and superstars from the tech world. Coming from fashion and media, this was unlike the other events I’ve had to work in for sure- but I loved every minute of the experience nonetheless.

Photo recap at Echelon Tech Convention in Singapore

Somehow I feel like everything I’ve learned covering and working in fashion shows/tradeshows, plus selling in retail, has evolved to help me in this world of tech.

Funny where the road takes you.

Especially this company-with it’s roots in streetwear- now evolving into a tech business that creates digital art dispersed through digital stickers.

Trust the natural evolution of your path….

Photos: Osaka and Kyoto and Nara, Oh My

Last month, I took a trip to Osaka to attend a business convention with my mom. I love traveling with her on trips like these because I learn a lot. She knows that at this point in my life, my shift towards business is becoming more and more evident. I figured if I wanted to be a great entrepreneur, why not learn from a woman who I’ve witnessed work hard and become a respected boss in her own right?

The plus side is of course being able to spend time with her. Ever since I moved abroad around 3.5 years ago, I don’t get to see her everyday. I treasure trips like this that let us chill out whether in our hotel room or exploring the neighborhood.

While in Osaka, we were able to take a few side trips to Kyoto and Nara (might as well since we are in the neighborhood right?). Photos of the trip after the jump…

Photos: Tattoo Envy at Geisha Ink

Got major tattoo envy when I passed by the Geisha Ink exhibit at Kee club last night. New York-based photographer Reka Nyari showcased her portraits of Akuma Suicide, who was dressed fully in her own intricately detailed tattoos. Hold your breath for more beauty after the jump…
