I was in Vancouver this week to see the Japan Unlayered, an exhibition on Japanese Art, Architecture and Culture happening at Fairmont Pacific Rim. The event features brands like MUJI, BEAMS JAPAN, Waketokuyama, ACURA and Sakurai Japanese Tea Experience as well as architecture by Kengo Kuma and designs from Rei Kawakubo (Comme des Garcons) and Yoji Yamamoto.
At the end of last year, I had picked 3 words for 2017. They are Faith, Create and Connect.

Recently, I went through a real rough time. I was so stressed out I couldn’t sleep for days. But in the end, an amazing friend helped me, and long story short, crisis was averted. Everything was OK. Nobody died.
