Another chance to catch up with my humour column for RTHK Radio 3 on VYP! This one walks funny, talks funny and is called Penguins…
Clearing Away the Cobwebbys
Thank you to the lovely people who run the Webby Awards for encouraging me (quite persistently, as the first couple of times they contacted me I just assumed it was a joke) to enter Bake Fail for their 2023 awards and offering me a scholarship to do so! I am sure I have no chance but imagining them listening to one of my obscure little podcasts was reward enough!
Living the Dream
My latest humour column for RTHK Radio 3 just got tutted up on VYP! It features a funny turn by my partner in crime Philippe Joly. This one’s the stuff of nightmares and called Dream On…
Sharp Pains will be back with a few new bells and whistles in the Lunar New Year! Kung Hei Fat Choi, amigos!
I put my Foot In It (again)
The Foot In It episode of my RTHK Radio 3 and SCMP humour column, Sharp Pains, has just flown out of my mouth and trodden on VYP! PS. I’ve got nothing to do with the choosing of photos on VYP. My choice would be the one below.
These are coming out thick and fast! My latest humour column just hit VYP on YouTube! This one’s a painful one and called Scrub…
Listen to Scrub on RTHK Radio 3 and read the goofy column in the SCMP here! Catch up on missed radio episodes of Sharp Pains here!
Another slice of Sharp Pains madness has hit VYP! This one’s a filthy one and aired on RTHK Radio 3 as Tea Bag…
I love tea. Some might say I’m something of a tea connoisseur. Milk and two sugars, please! But I love tea. And also making famous people make me tea when I’m bored. Here’s one I brewed earlier…
Bake Fail Nominated for Moment of Comedy Gold – 2022 International Women’s Podcast Awards
POOF! Blown away in a hurricane to be nominated for ‘Moment of Comedy Gold‘ by the International Women’s Podcast Awards for my cheeky recipe for disaster, Bake Fail! The awards take place at The Conduit in Covent Garden, London Sept 29. Sadly, I won’t be able to attend in person but I look forward to setting my alarm for 4am (no, really!) to watch on Zoom! Thank you soooooooooo much to the IWPA judges, Amazon Music and Wondery, and the brilliant Everybody Media!
The episode of my humour column for RTHK Radio 3, Sharp Pains, has already exceeded my wildest delusions this year after being chosen as an Official Select by the 2022 On Air Fest in Brooklyn, New York. It was published in the South China Morning Post as A Piece of Cake in June. Sharp Pains was also shortlisted for Best Regularly Scheduled Comedy Program by the 2022 New York Festivals Radio Awards. Thanks to everyone who has followed my escapades in the SCMP, on RTHK and YouTube!
Things To Do with Food from The Rotting Tray
Ever wondered what to do with food from the rotting tray besides waiting for it to slowly decompose before eventually throwing it away? Home Spa has the answer! It has just gone live on VYP! And by “just”, I mean 3-4 weeks ago. (Sorry.)
Catch up with missed episodes of Sharp Pains on RTHK Radio 3‘s 123 Show here! And look out for more humour columns (and the occasional Rant) in the SCMP! My latest, The Moody Foodie, was published in Post Magazine on Sunday! More foodie humour threatened soon!
Transference scores 4M Views on YouTube!
The indie film I co-produced has just soared to over 4.3 million views on YouTube! Thanks to everybody who’s watched and supported the film’s mental health mission!
CONGRATULATIONS to co-producer, actor (and Mental Ideas ambassador) Simone Lahbib for winning Best First-Time Director and the Audience Award for Best Film at the Soho London Film Festival last night for her directing debut Swipe Right, a chilling thriller exploring the perils of mobile dating apps! 🍾 🤩 🙌

Plan a Trip on VYP!
Staycationers take note: you don’t need to travel to plan a trip. Why not torture your ears with my psychedelic poem instead? War of Voices has just landed on the Voice Your Passion poetry channel! Thanks to wordsmith extraordinaire Dr. Ahmed Elbeshlawy for the kind introduction and for inviting me to read! His latest poetry book, Unappeasable Ghosts, is a precious gem and I can’t WAIT to interview him on S2 of Mental Ideas soon! The new series explores the mercurial relationship between mental health and imagination.
You can listen to me reading War of Voices for VYP below and buy the poetry anthology in which the poem was first published here! All the other poets on the channel are phenomenal so please don’t forget to subscribe!!! And if poetry’s not your vibe, Sharp Pains will be debuting on VYP from Nov 18 in weekly episodes! That should sufficiently lower the tone! 🤣
