Kaiser Honig

June 9, 2008

Kris Kaiser makes amazing honey. Kris trained in botany and bee keeping during the 80s and owned a bee farm for many years before establishing his new company, Kaiser Honig. Kaiser Honig produces unique artisanal honeys in flavors like fig, Chinese five spice, plum-ginger, and chili (his mint and almond honey is my favorite). Kris has got a killer palate and is constantly developing new flavors. We’ve got a little project in development with Kris, so we sat down at his studio this weekend to sample some of his recent experiments – more on that to come.

Currently, the only way to get a hold of Kris’s honey is to visit the Kollwitzplatz market on Saturday or the Mauerpark market on Sunday. Kris doesn’t have a website yet, but we’re going to see if we can change that…

“I found it at the end of the rainbow”

Our friend Miggie Cheng is having her first solo show at Kapok in Hong Kong.

“I found it at the end of the rainbow”

Original works are inspired from her 5 years of travels which include fashion pieces, installations, thoughts and poems as well as collaborating with close friends and family.

“There are thousands of reasons to leave home. To follow one’s dream, to celebrate a beginning or an end; to spend precious time with friends and family, or equally valued time with oneself.

This exhibition is a dedication to all those who have ever wondered or dared to seek personal fufillment at the end of the rainbow.”
Miggy Cheng

Opening reception Sunday June 15th at 3pm at Kapok G/F, 9 Dragon Road, Tin Hau, Hong Kong.

Pause

June 3, 2008

We moved to a new apartment this week and have to get our internet hook up in order, so updates will be a bit spotty for the next few weeks (German efficiency does not, apparently, apply to domestic services). Back online!
