Home for Fanatics of Little Pieces of Heart
Dim Sum Pop arouse out of a curious idea to turn dim sum into one inch button badges. Most likely influenced by the culture and cuisine (and mind-numbing tropical heat!) of Hong Kong over 16 months.
To date, the concept is in its infancy and subject to market interest, but the aim is to develop a community of dim sum aficionados alongside quirky dim sum merchandise.
New Adventures in East Asia
In February 2009, I emigrated to my family home in Hong Kong to spend 16 months exploring East Asia. MangoVine was effectively a window to my experiences during this time, enabling me to share my observations and gained knowledge as well as selected photographs and video.
I returned to London in May 2010, with plans to continue MangoVine as a resource for travel in the East Asian region.
The Integration of British Chinese into Politics
The BC Project is a non-partisan, voluntarily run organisation that seeks to elevate the presence of the UK Chinese community in the British political arena.
I've been involved as a committee member since March 2007 and as a Board Director from July 2010 after it formalised as a limited company. Naturally, I take responsibility for branding, web and communications.

Thoughts for Designers & Entrepreneurs
Filoflow acts as my depository for articles I've written that reflect on design and business issues encountered since my career began in 1998.
During consultancy with clients, I'd often find myself being asked the same questions for advice in relation to these issues. I thought I'd write up some of my responses and so Filoflow was born.
Popular Visual Culture
Visual Streak is my digital scrapbook for visual content I've come across online that inspires and informs.
Since there's so much visual stimuli online, this site attempts to collect and curate the best in order to share with my site visitors.
A Guide to Achievers in the UK's Chinese Culture
Visible Chinese is an online guide of people with an aim to become an authoritative, independent listing of achievers within the UK's Chinese Culture.
This project was conceived in order to help raise the profile of the Chinese community, whilst also strengthening the presence of the Chinese Culture in the UK. To date, there are over a hundred profiles included.
East Asian Pop Culture
OneInchPunch is a website that shares links to and promotes East Asian Pop Culture. It's by far my most successful sideline project in terms of audience, recording over 160k page views per month.
A new post is added daily (since December 2006) and since I'm genuinely passionate about East Asia, I have great fun running this site.
