其實我是有稿要打的,

但今晚選擇了寫關於懶人政治。

我很懶,喜歡購物、瞓教,hea到不得了。

我又算不上乖小孩,喜歡派對、聽音樂、玩。

我説我不良於行,真的,不想走路,也沒氣力。

我自問不算得是何種了解政治的人,因爲政治很難,也很深。

懶人也要工作,於是工作佔據了大部份的時間。生活得好好的,每天吃的喝的穿的都無憂,家中不愁負擔,跟本就是幸福到不能。很多時候,我真的懶得不想理會社會發生甚麼事,尤其政治豈容易理解,所以別跟我説政治!

我也不談窮人生活困苦這些「事不關己,理不到太多」的事。

可是你只是稍稍留意茶餐廳的套餐要茶或咖啡需加8蚊(咩叫套餐?);剛從GIVENCHY買下的一款新手袋跟門口蹲着的大嬸一樣;地鐵内有操超音頻普通話人士搶你的位置(雖然你沒有expect有位坐);OH! 8達通咁快要top-up? 英國的flea market很正,香港哪裡找;明哥、beyond當年的歌才是真音樂,還有搞music festival的西九將不復再…

以上一切正是我們生活中的變化,不知不覺,原來政治找上門了。

如果不是商家作主;如果搵錢是大晒的;如果政府是皇帝;如果你覺得你跟大陸人一樣財大氣粗,大概你會覺得無所謂。否則如我,不容沒殺的自尊和良心,這時候都比懶更大了!都話「嬲起上嚟,咩都做得出」是真的,我唯有遊行當運動,買了的新波鞋是時候出動。是你逼我的!反抗,譲政府知道我不願意。

我懶,不過我有骨氣!

你説沒有用,我説你坐喺度,更加冇X用!Shame on you.

The neon yellow see-thru lace dress $12,999 (available at I.T hysan)

做訪問的好處就是能夠從成功的人身上學會成功之道。

這週跟同年紀的Simone Rocha見面,於I.T訪談新季設計。

這女孩口說不受其父的影響,我說她還是幸得其父名時裝設計師John Rocha之庇蔭和支持,才得以上位,尤其每年英國倫敦,甚至Central St. martin都有大量的畢業生湧入市場。

但當然她個人的才華也不容忽視。任你對她的設計有多挑剔,”透明PVC可穿性極低,新季只有兩條皮帶支撐的Acrylic手袋根本重得不能用”等。你還是無法無視它的存在,這就是其設計的成功之道。

The benefit of working on interview is to learn from those successful people. This week I have interviewed the young designer at my age Simone Rocha about her SS13.

The girl were saying she has never been affected by her famous dad, who is a fashion designer, John Rocha.

But I am pretty sure the support and advice from his dad is defo there which is extremely helpful to a young designer like her. Especially there are plenty of graduates in the UK, London or even the Central St. Martins.

Despite her talent is most recognized too. Even we are very critical about her transparent design such as the PVC items are not wearable. Or the bag made of acrylic is heavyily supporting by 2 leather straps only. We do believe its visibility is impossible to be ignored. See this is how she becomes so sucessful.

Thx for reading. xx strangejoanne

Shu Uemura the creative cosmetic brand and collaborating the indie magazine Wonderland. The beauty film named Make Up Not War is on the Wonderland website.  I am totally fond with the make up style which is very much like the <<The Rocky Horror Picture Show>>, a very inspiring cult film. Piece of art! Perfect for styling inspiration! xx strangejoanne

I just had an interview of a girl for the fashionista feature of my magazine. Before it issued, I would write something about her which I know I rarely do so. But this can be the very first time that I admire a Hong Kong fashionista.

Her name is Tina Leung. I have met her quite a few times on different fashion events and occasion, mostly at Lane Crawford.  I never really have get known what she does until today’s interview. She surprised me. Not about her work but her attitude.

Waiting, tired in the morning but looking forward to meet her cos she is sort of a mystery. Reading her blog and instagram, you can tell this girl has a different taste of fashion. She makes use of colour and shape very well that suit her body figure. So how will she be wearing? I know I don’t have to worry.

Turn out she arrived with plenty of sorry. She was late for an hour this noon cos of her work.She showed up and dressed nicely in the first outfit I requested. And, with killing heels, RUNNING towards me. I was worried if she would fall.

She isn’t a model, not with a doll face, not a size zero. Unexpectedly she did it so well in 5 mins shoot with gorgeous outfits.During the time, Tina gets changed. My photographer and I have been waiting for 15 mins in between each of her change. Tired, but wanting to see her look.

She is totally a sweet girl with fashion sense that I never have such compliment on a fashion girl in Hong Kong. When we have all finished, she suggested to have McDonald’s as she is starving. Tina even had bought me a coke zero.

If you don’t have a good heart, no matter how you dress is shit. So many fashion people out there gossip around, act bitchy and behave slutty. Or they are arrogant just because they thinks they are cool wearing labels. Why would they do so? They are just empty.

I admire Tina as she is a sweet, caring girl who really works hard on her jobs. I tell myself work hard, be tough and never be mean or arrogant! 

Check out her blog http://www.tinaloves.com/and you can get known more about her and her fashion life. xx strangejoanne



經過咁多日,係時候寫返啲嘢。
10日中的佔領政總,我參與了7天,其中2天通宵。

國民教育一科,沒被撤回,政府敷愆回應,稍作修改以陰招將責任推向學校。學民思潮及大聯盟結束佔領政總行動,難免失望,但自問天天要上班,下班後參與集會,其中假期一子通宵兩天,已經疲累不堪,何況年輕的中學生們及年長的絕食者?他們爲的是什麼?是時候抖擻一下,再下一城想對策,別要耗盡力氣。

由中學生發起的社會運動,演講辭不像官員般讀貓紙,黃之鋒的流利、理性、具分析和説服力的演説,我們自愧不如。同時我們這一群就不能爲社會的不公義做些什麼?

這7天眼看人群們的自發、自律,心中激動!自發洗廁所、拾垃圾、廢物回收分類、物資的分享等,只有香港做得到,這真爲身爲香港人的我感驕傲!另外感受良多的是,一張蓆,躺臥在政府總部,金鐘摩天大廈,刺眼黃色街燈下的硬邦邦石屎地上,感覺到自己多麼渺小。然而集會人數之多卻又感到人民的力量,絕對能

捍衞自己的地方,正如03年71上街的50萬人。

那年20多歳的Beyond黃家駒創作了海闊天空,歌詞内表達了這樣的理想:
原諒我這一生不羈放縱愛自由
也會怕有一天會跌倒
背棄了理想 誰人都可以
那會怕有一天只你共我

所謂政治冷感的80後們,我們生活於艱難時期,沒有分享得到任何社會成果,買不到樓不在話下,還有車費不定期肆意漲價,開店的租金不斷升,物價騰貴。身邊不乏藝術、文化界的朋友,我們新聞自由被剝削,搞藝術音樂的地方被趕絕,連最基本的flea market,street art都沒有,我們怨聲載道,正是當前社會的不公平,政制的不完善、不民主而造成,你能沉默嗎?

自從1997後,開始懂事的我堅信50年不變是個謊言。03年首次因反對23條而遊行,當時身邊朋友無人理會,這些年來置身事外,幸好還有家人陪同。但9年後今天,身邊衆多人終於發覺慢慢失去的越來越多,才走出來捍衞自己的自由。不過仍然感動,因爲我不再孤單,大家對政治開始關心。今回特別感動的是,自今年七一遊行起,同事們都一同參與其中。大家團結、熱血、有愛,很年青人!

別以爲説我們無能爲力!有些人也説,既然是香港是中國的地方,就該被河蟹,我極度不同意!難道被所謂的“爸爸“強姦,則要乖乖就範配合? 而且,政府是理應受命於民,沒有任何爸媽之説。未洗腦前的我們記得小學常識書教的”政府是市民的公僕”嗎? 請團結地盡力把現今不合理的時勢改變,香港可以有希望的。
