Thanks to Hong Kong Buzz for their continuous support of Home Kong Kitchen! December is our busiest time of year – and we’d LOVE to have your support! We are collecting gifts for the homeless for our festive deliveries of Christmas Gift Sacks (sewn by crafty kids) for the homeless @ImpactHK and migrants in need @Bethune House Dec 16, a Christmas party with refugee kids @Refugee Union Dec 17 and will be making more door to door deliveries of home baked gingerbread, fruit and other small gifts for the elderly with Amigos HK Dec 18! We are also selling raffle tickets to support the Mission for Migrant Workers at their annual fundraising event Dec 19!

Make friends, support the homeless, sweat and swear like a refuse collector (?!) by joining our festive jamboree: hello@homekongkitchen.com!🎄 🇭🇰

I took part in my first lit fest last weekend reading an excerpt from my absurdist short story Shitstorm at the 2021 Hong Kong International Literary Festival! Shitstorm is one of many short stories and poems published by the Hong Kong Writers Circle in their 2021 anthology After The Storm.

The book is now available to buy as an ebook and in paperback on Amazon, in Bookazine and (from next Friday) in my local indie bookstore, Kidnapped in Sai Kung! Even though I had a slight brain fart moment in the Q&A bit, nobody seemed to notice (Brain Fart is my default setting) and I had an absolute blast reading to a live audience, instead of to myself in a poky little studio, imagining the groans of RTHK listeners! Still not sure how I managed to poke myself in the eye with the mic though… At least that‘s never happened in the studio before.

Thanks to Hong Kong Buzz for their little plug of the event and to the Writers Circle for introducing me to some of the best people in Hong Kong and making it all happen!

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!!!

Of all the faux pas I could be reasonably gagged and life imprisoned for under the HKSAR’s new, sweeping National Security Law, this month’s horoscopes in Hong Kong Buzz seemed the least subversive. So imagine my surprise when I received an email from editor Robin Bradbeer informing me that this month’s litany of criminally insane predictions had been personally approved by Friend To The Stars superfan Xi Jinpin, a Gemini, but banned by that bastion of democratic free speech, Google, for ‘violating its sexual content policy’?

My reaction was understandably seditious, as it had taken me a full five minutes to divine them. Luckily, the sticky situation was swiftly resolved when editor and plucky ex-lawyer Robin colluded with Bat Man and appealed. Then, when that failed, Jupiter threatened to post naked pictures of Google’s mum on Porn Hub.

Ahhh, I’ll miss this malarkey when the Great Firewall comes crashing down……

I’ve got a criminal record as long as your arm, but most of my heinous crimes were committed while I was in Nod. At least that’s what I told the popo…

Hahahaha!

Thanks Hong Kong Buzz for your plug of my Mental Ideas Podcast, plus recent film festival excitements for a film I co-produced with Contro Vento Films Transference: A Bipolar Love Story, which was supposed to have its world premiere at the New York Socially Relevant Film Festival in March, the film’s selections for the Arizona International Film Festival and Buenos Aires International Film Festival, mention of my 2019 NIFA Award and plans to travel to Wisconsin to catch up with the indomitable Dan Davies (an upcoming podcast guest) for NIFA 2020 in May. Which sounds a lot more exciting that it actually is. In reality, the podcast is the only item of news mentioned in the article that hasn’t been postponed. But give it time…

RTHK's Miss Adventure Friend to the Stars - Monthly Column in Hong Kong Buzz

The Mental Ideas Podcast will be back on RTHK Radio 3 next Thursday (April 16) @ 2.30pm on the 123 Show!

Episode 1 of my Mental Ideas Podcast, a new weekly strand on the fantabulous Noreen Mir‘s 123 Show, aired April 2, 2020 on RTHK Radio 3!

Depression. It’s no laughing matter. Or is it? Why are so many of our best loved comedians depressed? I trance in and out exploring this tragi-hilarious topic with award-winning cartoonist, depressed humorist and best-selling author, the irrepressible Larry Feign: creator of the iconic Lily Wong comic strip published in the South China Morning Post. Larry was the first cartoonist to have a full-page spread in Time Magazine, worked in animation for Walt Disney Studios and is the international best-selling author of 15 comic books and children’s book series The Fart Brothers, which he sensibly writes under the pen name M.D. Whalen because he doesn’t want to be too closely associated with flatulence.

The Mental Ideas Podcast will be back on RTHK Thursday April 9 @ 2.30pm!

Lockdown your daughters! Lockdown your sons! Lockdown your spouses! Lockdown your helpers! Lockdown your pets! 

Miss Adventure has finally clambered oh-so-elegantly out of that strange parallel universe she’s been inhabiting for the past couple of months (ok, she may have written most of these in a fit of predictive psychosis way back in 2019, when tear gas, rubber bullets and fire bombs were all we had to worry about – happy days!) to bring you THESE hurriedly updated, probably dangerously accurate Lockdown Lowdown predictions for the month ahead in her latest column for Hong Kong Buzz!
