Designer a cut above the opposition

Having moved from Central's On Lan Street to Sai Street, at the farther end of the business district, artist-designer Sin Sin Man (below, right) finds life much quieter. But later this month, she will showcase her latest collection at the Sin Sin Atelier in the form of a video titled Rejuvenate!

Whirlwind Westwood

Our paper once lambasted the government for ignoring Britain's Victoria and Albert Museum's invitation to stage the retrospective of Vivienne Westwood in Hong Kong. No one knows what was on the Home Affairs Bureau's mind. The exhibition, however, toured Canberra, Bangkok, Taipei and Shanghai over the past year. The next stop will be the Mori Arts Centre in Tokyo.

Wanted: spaniards

Makers of a Spanish television project are seeking Spaniards in Hong Kong, especially those from Andalucia, for a documentary about life in the city. They want to explore why they made Hong Kong home and if they have any plans to return to Spain.

Chan the bad guy (with a good heart)

Jackie Chan has been playing heroic, righteous guys for four decades. For the first time, he is attempting to break out of that mould in the action comedy Project BB. Chan, Sammo Hung Kam-bo and Eric Tsang Chi-wai have to steal a baby to complete a deal with a gang - the laughter comes when none of them knows how to take care of their little hostage.

With spring in their steps

Celebrities were out in force for the launch of Marc Jacobs' spring/summer collection at Cuisine Cuisine in Two IFC.

The young and hip included the brand's long-time supporters Gigi Leung Wing-kei, Karena Lam Ka-yan and Jade Kwan Sum-yin.

Lingerie store tailor-made for men with women in mind

We all know some men buy lingerie for their girlfriends or wives, but we didn't know there were so many.

CitySeen chatted with James Wong Chun-kit, who has been quick to tap this market and opens a shop catering exclusively to men, Men's Mart, in Lung Fei Building in Mongkok today.

Inside story

THE MUCH-HYPED film Train Man gives a fairytale view of Japan's socially reclusive youth, or hikikomori. A young man lives like a hermit, mostly holed up in his room, where his world revolves around the internet and video games. He falls for a pretty girl he meets on a train and gets his online friends to help him court her.

Taking the time to talk

Having worked in a bar for more than 14 years, I have come across different generations and types of young people. Some of them come in here purposely looking for a channel to vent their anger, while others prefer to internalise their emotions.

New kids on the blog

MEET SIDEKICK, one of Hong Kong's more quoted bloggers. A media-industry worker, she started her internet musings with reflections on her daily life. These days, though, her topics range from the latest gadgetry to comments on song-writers or the legacy of China's struggle against the Japanese invasion.

Anson the favoured jewel for leading role

Do we all miss former chief secretary Anson Chan Fang On-sang this much? CitySeen is surprised to discover internet surfers favour Mrs Chan over Kelly Chen Wai-lam or Maggie Cheung Man-yuk to play the leading female role Jang-geum if Hong Kong shoots its own series of Jewel in the Palace. This is after three rounds of voting, in which more than 40,000 people participated.

Adieu, my friends

This is it. After a fun, exciting and certainly educational 14 weeks, today's CitySeen column is my last. Carrie Chan will be taking over for two weeks as CitySeen columnist and Society editor, and by May 9 the lovely Flora Wu will be back from her extended leave. As for myself, I will be writing articles for different sections of the Post.

Think out of the box

In my teens, I studied at Stuyvesant High School in New York City, specialising in science and maths. But the school also had a strong programme in arts and architecture. That was where I gained exposure to areas like visual arts and art history, and eventually built up a strong interest in architecture.
