Another amazing accolade from my friends in the migrant community: a certificate of recognition from Bethune House for being Top Fundraiser canvassing for their Coins for Bethune appeal! Delivering breakfast to the residents of Bethune House is one of the highlights of my week and I could not be prouder to support their inspirational work sheltering migrants in need!🙏 🙏🏽 🙏🏿

Thanks to everybody @HomeKongKitchen (especially Mojo who did most of the dog work) who gave so generously to support this brilliant initiative raising funding for migrants in Hong Kong! 💜 💜 💜

Catch me hosting Mental Love Stories on RTHK Radio 3‘s 123 Show with the brilliant Noreen Mir from September 2021 through to 2022! The weekly strand celebrates unusual love stories and explores the impact of the pandemic on relationships and mental health. The guest list is now almost complete and TBA soon! Catch up on Series 1 of Mental Ideas HERE

Until then, you can still catch me performing Sharp Pains, on the 123 Show. Binge on missed episodes of Sharp Pains on RTHK‘s Podcast One platform, Apple Podcasts, iHeart Radio, Player FM and right here on RTHK’s Miss Adventure

I’ll also be appearing on the 123 Show as a guest at some point in July chatting with the legendary Noz about my real-life Bake Fails at Home Kong Kitchen

This might be my fave photo hack ever! Mainly because the SCMP did make their cartoon of me an uncanny cross of Camilla Parker-Bowles and… her horse.

My latest humor column was published in the SCMP‘s Post Magazine July 1!

Harsh! 🤣

The column first aired on RTHK Radio 3 as Scrub. You can hear the radio version below!

My latest Sharp Pains humor column aired last Tuesday (June 29) on th123 Show. If you missed it, please don’t fret, pet! You can still catch it on RTHK and all the usual podcast places. This one’s a sticky one and called Bake Fail

Sharp Pains will be back on RTHK Radio 3 later this month!

I haven’t made anything this disgusting since Eat Your Words.

Excited to be joining the brilliant Noreen Mir on RTHK Radio 3‘s 123 Show talking about Home Kong Kitchen, which recently celebrated its first birthday and received a Happy Homes Award from the Mission For Migrant Workers! Keep checking this space for details of how you can listen live or download the interview as a podcast!

Meanwhile, catch me on the 123 Show performing my regular humor column Sharp Pains (the last episode was rather timely and aptly called Bake Fail) and get ready for the return of Mental Ideas on RTHK Radio 3 as a weekly strand of the 123 Show in September!

I will be reading an extract from my (very long) debut poem War of Voices for HKU Libraries at an event organized by Proverse Publishing this Thursday (July 15) from 6-8pm!

The poem was published by Proverse and Chinese University Press April 22, 2021 after winning a place in the 2020 Proverse Poetry Prize anthology, Mingled Voices 5. A film of the event will be available on the ProverseHKU websites.

I have to admit I’m a little nervous about this. Not because I’m a nervous public speaker. Just because War of Voices is the first thing I’ve written where I don’t hear my own author’s voice AT ALL! Whose voice do I hear? Unfortunately, it’s Aled Jones’ voice, circa 1980s, when he sang the Christmas hit, Walking In The Air.

Why is this bad? Why do you think!!! Because I sound nothing like an 8 year old choir boy with an angelic voice. I sound, at best, like a cat that’s being strangled slowly to death by a python. So I guess my greatest fear is of breaking into song midway through the reading.

Your prayers that this will NOT happen on Thursday are very much appreciated at this difficult time.

I imagine Young Aled’s expression will be pretty similar to that on the faces of the audience at this event…

So happy and honored to have been awarded a Happy Homes Award on behalf of Home Kong Kitchen by the Mission For Migrant Workers! 💜 🙏 💜 What an incredible way to celebrate HKK‘s first birthday! Doubly honored to be receiving this award at the same time as the inspirational Daisy Tam and our friends and collaborators at Breadline! Daisy and I intend to sink a cold one in celebration with our amazing volunteers at the earliest opportunity!!! Thanks to the MFMW and all our migrant friends!

You can read more about the Mission’s incredible work supporting and protecting the human rights of migrant workers in Hong Kong here: https://www.migrants.net 🇵🇭 🇮🇩 🇭🇰 Look out for an interview with me and Daisy on the MFMW‘s Facebook page to be uploaded soon!

You can now watch Transference for FREE on YouTube, where it has already received over 1.7M views!!! So proud of my involvement as a co-producer of this feature-length indie film to raise awareness of mental health! Congratulations Raff (director/ male lead) and to everyone who worked on it since its conception in 2019! 🙏 🙏🏽 🙏🏿

Can’t believe Home Kong Kitchen has been baking, collecting and delivering bread and other treats to Hong Kong’s homeless, migrants in crisis and refugees for A YEAR!!!! That’s a lot of dough, amigos!

Thanks to all my homeless friends, incredible team of bighearted Homekongers, and inspirational collaborators and beneficiaries, including Breadline, ImpactHK, Bethune House, Loved Flock, Christian Action HK, Refugee Union and the Mission for Migrant Workers for being part of my first culinary miss adventure!

Here’s a few of my favorite faces and memories from the past year! Happy 1st Birthday Home Kong Kitchen!!!
