Sharp Pains has been growing a new audience of poetry fans on the Voice Your Passion channel on YouTube! (Poetic injustice?) The Bake Fail episode has just gone live! My cheeky recipe for disaster was published in the SCMP’s Post Magazine as A Piece of Cake earlier this month. Catch up with missed episodes on RTHK Radio 3 here and look out for more humour columns (and the occasional Rant) in Post Mag!

A Piece of Cake in the SCMP!
Thanks to the South China Morning Post for publishing my recipe for disaster A Piece of Cake in last Sunday’s Post Magazine! Online version will be uploaded soon. You can hear my deranged radio version of this one on RTHK here!
Recipe for Disaster: Read my Culinary Cautionary Tale in Post Magazine Next Sunday!
My smoke alarm hasn’t stopped ringing this week! Thanks to the On Air Festival making it one of their Official Selects and support from the Women with WiPS, Bake Fail is the episode of my saucy humor column for RTHK Radio 3 that refuses to burn out. My culinary cautionary tale will be published in the ‘Foodie’ section of the South China Morning Post‘s Post Magazine April 3rd! Please check it out as I doubt I will have another opportunity to mention myself in the same sentence as ‘Foodie’.
Sharp Pains is taking a short sabbatical because my legendary partner in crime Noreen Mir is having a baby!!! You’d think she’d be put off extending her family by my columns but no, she told me she found them an aphrodisiac. The columns are now being repurposed as traditional Chinese medicine to beat Covid and boost population growth. But don’t worry – Sharp Pains will be back on the air before you’ve had time to notice it’s missing!
Bake Fail hits list of On Air Fest’s 2022 Official Selects!

Secret Santa – Sharp Pains
My latest humor column aired TODAY (Dec 2) on RTHK Radio 3‘s 123 Show. Rolling in at an epic 12 mins, it’s my usual puerile humor but with a smidge of Christmas schmaltz thrown in. Sharp Pains will be back on RTHK with a riot of festive frivolity Dec 30!
This one’s a shiny one and called Secret Santa…
Look out for 3 of my Sharp Pains short stories in the Long Reads section of the end-of-year festive edition of the SCMP‘s Post Magazine Dec 12! And catch Secret Santa on the Voice Your Passion Poetry Channel Dec 19!

Cats – Sharp Pains
My latest humor column for RTHK Radio 3 aired Oct 28 – 48 hours later than usual, thanks to Noz spacing out (her words, not mine, as I’m in no position to call anyone out for being ‘spacey’). This means Sharp Pains will be back 48 hours sooner in November!
This one’s a scratchy one and called Cats… It’s relatively inoffensive (apart from to Cat People obvs).
Pajama Farty – Sharp Pains
Episode 13 of my highbrow humor column Sharp Pains broadcasted on RTHK Radio 3‘s 123 Show Sept 28 @2.30pm HKT! Guest hosted by the relentlessly chipper Todd Harding, standing in for Noz, this one’s a windy one and called Pajama Farty…
