We study those individual lives, often through letters, authoritative biographies and narratives to gain...

  • Very Decent Dim Sum
    The billboard had been entirely in Chinese save the mysterious Ping Pang Pong in recognizable script, certainly tweaking my curiousity. The recent addition of a few words in English giving the hours of a Dim Sum lunch, just in time for Chinese New Year, seemed a great excuse to find out what the Golden Nugget was up to.

  • Tai Chi Ch’uan classes
    We’ve all seen images of rows of elderly Chinese in pyjamas, their arms undulating in calming, controlled unison, visions of fluidity, grace and balance that belie their age.

  • Aloha! Chinese New Year on the 9th Island
    Don’t miss the Chinese New Year celebrations at the Chinatown Plaza on Sunday Feb 25. As my calendar says that Chinese New Year is Feb 18, I don’t quite understand the date.
