If you're around Verbier or any of the nearby 4 valleys, and if you're in to ski touring, drop out the backside from Mont Fort and get ready for your life's hike. This mountain landscape is absolutely breathtaking and the snow is fantastic. Although, make sure you're fully geared up for the backcountry, have read the weather and avalanche reports and that you go out with a good team that you can trust. Ski to live another day!
Probably I think I spend money most in the life there. It is small store, but it is a sophisticated one. Especially there are good books of art and design. I go there four or five times a week. I wish they make the reward card!
This place makes my heart sing. I’m so happy it’s only 2 blocks away. This teeny tiny little Cuban restaurant/bar is always warm, welcoming, and vibrating with visual over-stimuli. Surreal toy sculptures cover every square inch, and I always find something I’ve never seen before while slurping down my sangria.
Situated on Lewisham Way Meze Mangal cooks up the best Turkish cuisine in South London with its massive charcoal grill situated for all to see, the smells and atmosphere are great. Always busy so make sure to book in advance.
A paradise for a rest : waterfalls, restaurants and bars (crazy parties at the top of the hills in Rosa Bonheur) As soon as the sun is shining people are going there to share a drink or a meal, lying on the grass surrounded by blazing green.
This is the view from the Manhattan Bridge of the Fulton Ferry Park, a pretty popular destination being between the Manhattan and the Brooklyn Bridges, which still has the old waterfront tobacco warehouses. It’s changed a bit being made more of a “finished” park with a kind of beach etc, and has also been a regular spot for outdoor music shows, one for me being the memorable 7-7-7 Boadrum orchestrated by the Boredoms.
Kawamura Memorial DIC Museum of Art is located in Sakura, Chiba Prefecture. It has a wide collections, from Rembrandt to Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman. In the past, there have been exhibitions of famous artists like Gerhard Richter. It's not just that it has a wonderful collection, but also that structure of the building shows the paintings and sculptures in a way that lets you consider freely whether or not they are great. Around the museum there is space to stroll, and some shopping. It's a place you can enjoy without getting tired. The museum is approx 50 min from Tokyo.

Painter, Day-dreamer, Wanderer. Corn sets out to explore the deepest levels of the human subconscious. The atmospheric, melancholic tones of her drawings and paintings evoke sensations of dislocation. These works document her interest in what is lost and what is found, the ambivalence between what is the fleeting memory and what is synthesized as a trace within the landscape.
She had a solo exhibition in Fringe Club, Hong Kong in May and a double solo exhibition in the Chelsea Waterside Artspace, London in July 2019. Three paintings ( City, Swimming Pool and Party) from her Night Swims series have been shortlisted and will be exhibited at D Contemporary Painting Prize 2019 at D Contemporary in Mayfair, London.

way part of the same melancholic yet
strangely witty universe.
