5 Time management tricks Penelope Trunk learnt from years of hating Tim Ferriss

The “4 Hour Work Week” was a good read but the value definitely doesn’t feel right expecting reward without paying the effort. Isn’t the fun part of doing anything is when you are actually doing it with all your heart?

On top of career, goals and dreams, it is important to choose the right people carrying same value to go on the journey together.

The 5 tricks by Penelope Trunk

1.Don’t hang out with people who don’t respect your time

2.Cut to the chase: Tell people who are full of sh*t that they’re full of sh*t

3.Self-centered people are more likely to waste your time

4.Productivity is about meeting your goals, not getting out of doing work

5.Time management is about making time to connect with people

Pay it forward

“Milk X” May issue Interview

 The interview with Milk X was released in the May issue.

Was the second time doing a personal interview for Milk X since I went to the UK.

The team have been looking after me all the way since I graduate from DMU, reporting the route I’ve been going through.

Especially always in the journey in different cities, bumping into some old friends or just a casual message means a lot to me! Thanks for your love my dear friends!

Hello~ Crazy Kitty

Recently did a project with Sanrio,

doing art direction for the annual Hello Kitty Summer Event.

It was a challenging task for my first time doing such a big scale set design.

There will be a pop-up Hello Kitty theme park in Hong Kong in August,

and will tour around to other countries, including Japan and Singapore.

 

I wasn’t a big fan of Hello Kitty but there is some magic in it,

that what this Kitty could do is out of imagination!

This Kitty Palm Tree welcomes you at the reception of the HK Sanrio office,

and the “Mountain of Kitty & Friends”  is the signature of their meeting room!

Do expect more from the Summer Event. Looking forward to August time!

Pringle of Scotland

Another great experience this week is my first days working with Claire Waight Keller at Pringle of Scotland.
It was funny that I was greeted to jump by Harry at the first time we meet at the project brief. Pringle is located in Sloane Square, close to the Saatchi Gallery, and I love popping into the Teschen shop in between lunch time.
A lot videos from Pringle I wanted to show and here is 2: the brand one is so cute!
and here is Claire: I love people who are organized, calm and having a very good balance between family and a successful career. x

Agent Provocateur dream came true

AWWWW!!!! I have yet got the right words to describe my delight working with Agent Provocateur recently!! Loving AP since 2005, I was at La Perla in Lane Crawford when they opened the first Asia concession store right next to me! Remember the time I told my tutor I wanted to design for Agent Provocateur and she said “Everyone wants to be there, it’s only a dream.”
Know I am a bit too obsessed that I couldn’t take the advice much seriously and kept dreaming. Thank you so much for Sara being so sweet and introduced me to the creative director, Sarah Shotton. Below is a vedio of her with Joe Corre, the founder and former director.

Besides the exquisite lingerie, their head office is just as beautiful! Have you ever image working everyday on a gold glitter desk? And the walls, shelfs and wardrobe are painted in the prettiest pink ever!  You will have a feeling of being really spoiled in this fantasy place! Also very convenient for visiting McQueen’s Polar Bear office which is on the same street. xx

Loss of our genius


I was talking through my work from Alexander McQueen to a client.
Meanwhile, she got a call, looking serious.
I went “Bad News?”
She replied, “Lee committed suicide.”
“What!?” I thought she was joking and it’s such a bad joke.
My phone started to ring and people ran around about the news.
Heat started going through into my head.
Recalling those days I had already fallen in love with his early work.
I totally cannot believe it and imagine tears running across the studio.
It is a terrible loss of our genius.
I wish him everything better in the other world. x
