A New Spanish Speakeasy in Central

Evolution may not be everyone’s explanation for how we all got here, but it does make for a compelling argument. Things, people, even places have a natural tendency to change, adapt, yes, evolve, thanks to external forces. After the industrial revolution, peppered moths, which were until then a light mottled colour, became dark grey, the better to hide in more polluted skies. New England blue mussels developed thicker shells when in waters populated by non-endemic Asian shore crabs. Even today’s modern gentleman will hone his skills, adapting the cheeky but tacky one liners once used in university bars into insightful anecdotes that modern women find compelling – it’s all about being able to evolve.

The Wonders of Fitness & Wellness

It’s the beginning of a new year, a shiny new ray of hope, a chance to do things right, start out fresh, set new goals and reach new and exciting targets. That’s right; it’s time to get back to the gym. But before you start to groan, think about it this way: it’s not just about hitting the weights and plodding away on the treadmill, it’s about building up resilience, improving recovery time and not harming yourself despite your best intentions. There are layers to reaching true performance and fitness goals, and recovery is a big part. To navigate the complexities of this cycle of energy, it helps to have an expert guide.

Marcey Hawk, a daring artist, is putting her 30D breasts to good use - by using them as 'brushes' to paint pictures.

Marcey Hawk covers her bosoms in paint and then presses them against her canvasses.
The artist, whose work has been bought by celebs such as Russell Brand and Hugh Hefner, uses a mixture of colours and angles her breasts in different directions and shapes to create her eye-catching pieces. Marcey has five methods she favours: the whole breast print, nipple print, 'just the tip' method, the 'squish and swirl' and her newest method which she calls the titty twerk.

Get Yourself Outdoors

Some things were not designed to be done inside; swinging the proverbial cat for one; impromptu MMA with close kin another. The superstitious won’t let you open an umbrella indoors; road flares don’t react well to confined spaces; astronomy loses much of its pizazz; and you can never get enough run up for an indoor slip-and-slide.

Few dishes boast the simplistic perfection of the pie. A myriad of fillings lovingly embraced by perfectly cooked, golden brown pastry, this humble dish sates the appetite and soothes the soul. Yet getting a well-made pie in Hong Kong can sometimes be a mission; those that are available either don’t get the ratio of filo to filling right, or come with a price tag that breaks with the humble pie’s distinctly working class roots. It’s enough to make a grown man weep with hunger.

The Beatles by Sir Peter Blake - All You Need Is…Art

In the 1960s, an unlikely British foursome took the world by storm with their innovative, daring musical stylings. Fast forward five decades and The Beatles are still considered to be among the greatest bands ever to have graced the music world, and classics like I Want To Hold Your Hand, Yesterday, and Eight Days A Week are still referenced in pop culture. Kanye West can compare himself to the big guy as much as he wants, but it’s unlikely that Yeezus has the same kind of staying power.

Stand Out From the Pack

Did you know the first business cards appeared in 17th century Europe, where they announced the impending arrival of nobility? The more common these rudimentary cards became, the more people tried to define their status with them, using gold etching, different fonts and expensive imported paper to make a strong first impression. Today, the business card is a vital component of the modern gentleman’s urban armour – especially in Asia where they are a very real part of doing business – and if you want to ensure victory at your next American Psycho-esque corporate card off, then we have something you need to see.

Release Your Inner Picasso

So it’s 2014 and times, as Dylan so eloquently put it, they’re a changin’. Today you don’t have to be a rugged cowboy, all bottled up inside. It’s now okay to show your sensitive side, to let out your inner metrosexuality, to harness your creative powers, and to embrace your EQ. And if that makes you more attractive to the fairer sex; if that creates intangible bonds with your next lady friend, proving to be the honey needed to snare today’s modern woman, then so be it.

True Couple’s Therapy

When couples come to an impasse in their relationship; when communication breaks down and resentment sets in, often counselors will suggest some time away together. A trip is a chance for couples to forget their external cares and to reconnect, to enjoy shared experiences and to rekindle the all-too-important sexual flames that modern life so easily retards. But it can’t be just to anywhere; it needs to be neutral ground, with plenty of discussion pieces to keep conversation flowing and activities for both him and her; somewhere with an abundance of romantic persuasion on tap.

Capture the Moment

The old adage says: if a tree falls in a forest and there’s no one around to hear it, does it make a sound? So we have to question: if you achieve a particularly impressive athletic feat, can you really brag about it if no one was around to see it? Remember the time you hooked a shark while deep sea fishing in the Mexican Gulf, and no one believed you? Or maybe you popped a particularly impressive wheelie with your bike, except no one was there to witness it. Well, now you can claim bragging rights while proving that your achievements did in fact, take place.

Thank God for Charlie

It’s rule number one when it comes to a business meeting with someone you’ve not met before: try to find some common ground. Breaking the ice, finding a level playing field, creating a congenial atmosphere through small talk is vital and in those situations, knowledge is the ultimate currency. You’re about to meet a valuable new contact – is he dating your vindictive ex, does he have a similar penchant for Alice in Chains, dirty martinis and off-market Dominican cigars; is he a closet Furry; or does he suffer from galactophilia. Knowing these vital gems of info could make or break the meeting. But really, who has that much time to snoop (except, it seems, your ex!)?

The Future is Now

We’ve all watched sci-fi films where the gallant space captain toggles his displays for additional info or fighter pilots use heads up displays to zero in on a bogey. Forget about the technological leaps of the last century, it wasn’t that long ago that we thought holding a mini screen in our hands displaying an updated schedule was out of this world. Then touchscreens brought a new sensory experience, and now we’re wirelessly keyed in to the world around us, allowing the average punter to explore Earth, vital information at the ready, as if on some strange new world.

‘Tis the Season

It’s finally upon us. The so-called silly season. That fun, exhausting and – let’s be honest – expensive time of year when we find multiple reasons to celebrate. Social, trendsetting gents the world over are seeing the calendars fill up with raucous company Christmas parties, more raucous (and infinitely more fun) holiday parties with friends, and perhaps, if they can rouse themselves the morning after, stints of frantic shopping to check off their naughty or nice list. In the midst of all this mayhem, the brave among us will throw open our doors to friends and family for a holiday party of their own, and the way to be the host with the most is to keep the food and drink flowing.

The Hollywood machine churns out more movies each year than we could ever hope to watch, but every now and then it puts out a film of truly gargantuan sartorial significance. The kind of film where the male protagonist cuts such a fine figure that he becomes that guy that all men want to be and all ladies want to be with. Here’s our picks of the films which changed the way we dressed.

A Man’s House is His Castle

Trips to Thailand have been, for most of us, an incremental graduation process. You started off in the thick of things, with four mates, a bottle of Mekong whiskey and digs at Patpong’s most affordable backpackers, where you were serenaded to sleep by the sounds of the ‘housekeepers’ turning tricks in the broom closet. Then there was the three-star stand alone resort; it had a pool, with water in it, clean but well-loved rooms, and was only a 45 minute walk to the beach. But today, you’re doing better, you’re a man of success and taste, and it’s time to dish out a little of that wealth on your next romp to the Kingdom of Smiles.

The Dome of Silence

Hong Kong has, you might have noticed recently, a lot of people. Although the government likes to say the population isn’t on the increase, it’s increasingly difficult to find a little slice of solitude where you, and perhaps the femme du jour, can cozy up over a glass of vintage champagne and whisper sweet pickup lines in her ear. After all, what’s the point of you using some of your best, time-weathered, tried-and-tested material if she can’t hear you over the din of house music and other people’s revelry?

Your Own China Beach Experience

You work hard, and you deserve a break from time to time. So what if we told you about a place where the air is clean, the sand the colour of honey, and the pounding surf a constant backdrop to idyllic beachfront living. It’s an exotic retreat, with a sun-kissed coastline and smiling, lingering-eyed locals; a place where world-class golf is only steps away, and where the day spa promises to poke and prod you into submission. All you have to do is choose who you’re taking with you.

Change. It Can Be Good For the Soul

In the words of that champagne-swilling icon Winston Churchill, “to improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” With the relentless nature of work, the timeless shuffle from home to office and back again, and the endless pursuit for something better, we can so easily get caught up in routine, finding ourselves stuck in a rut, a groundhog day that sucks the very essence out of life. Change is good for the soul; it allows us to tackle the unexpected, challenge conventions, turn the tides on our own existence – and the change doesn’t have to be monumental; little steps leads to long journeys.

Channel Your Inner Bad Boy

It’s not breaking news that every girl harbours a hidden – or in some cases, not so hidden – soft spot for the proverbial bad boy. These charismatic, leather-wearing, chain-smoking Marlon Brando types are the guys that manage to have several girls at their beck and call at any one point in time. They may be loathed to admit it, but there’s a reason why the bad boy is to so many woman what kryptonite is to Superman. Now, as gentlemen, we’ve evolved beyond the rather infantile bad boy persona. But there’s no harm in making subtle suggestions to what lurks beneath – just enough to remind her she doesn’t want to drive off a cliff sitting next to a Rebel Without A Cause wannabe.

Out on Show

Performance isn’t a priority for most chefs; innovation, ingredients, dedication to their art – for leading talents in the culinary world, these things will always come first. That said, you ask a lot of chefs what’s the one thing they miss while being cooped up in a hot kitchen, and it’s being able to see the effect their dishes have on their guests. Show kitchens, private restaurants, even cooking classes, are all designed to break down the barriers between chef and diner like never before, turning a cook into a host, a performer, and a guru.
