EDITOR’S LETTER This month at Talk we have been busy relaunching our website. It has taken a few months to come to fruition, but I hope you will agree that it has been worth the wait. Make sure you head to to take a look. As well as our normal monthly content, which will also be available online, we can now keep you up to date with the latest news, deals, events and listings online. You can also follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for regular updates. We have a rundown of Talk’s Top Hotel Awards contenders in this issue’s supplement so you can read up about the best hotels in town before booking in for a staycation or a visit to their facilities (pages 23 to 28). The winners of the awards will be announced at our very own awards party and released to our dear readers shortly after that. The issue this month is very heavily influenced by music. We have Spencer Tarring, you might know him better as that “loveable rogue” and M1NT’s resident DJ, DJ Spenny, talking about dance music in China. As we have said before, love him or hate him, he has an opinion (page 9). We also have an insightful look at the past, present and future of jazz music in Shanghai (pages 10 and 11) before taking a closer look ahead to this month’s JZ festival (pages 12 and 13). Our style feature this month will hopefully give you some inspiration to funk (the music theme is ongoing) up your outfit for A/W13, by taking note of international designers

Curbing Policies

Heat Wave

With the rise in pollution and traffic congestion, eight cities are announcing policies to curb the purchase of vehicles for private use. These restrictions may cut 400,000 units, 2% of total domestic sales, having an impact on China’s economic growth.

The extreme heat wave may be becoming a cause for concern. With record-breaking temperatures, the issue of water shortages, power supply worries and concerns for the fall harvest have arisen. Long-term climate predictions are being made to assist the country in dealing with extreme weather conditions in the future.

The JZ Festival Is Great For Jazz In Shanghai, But What About Dance? Spencer Tarring


he subject of dance music in Shanghai is one that is near and dear to me. I have benefited from years of experience in the industry, since my early days as a UK Garage MC until now where I am the resident DJ at M1NT. Currently networking in LA and setting up management deals with my Vous Records label, I’m becoming increasingly well connected to have influence on the direction of music in China. The truth is, that China’s music scene is heavily undeveloped, maybe ten to fifteen years behind the US scene. With no access (for the majority of Chinese) to western influences, dance and house music is just non-existent here. However, there are a billion people, there must be some talent surely? Well there is. It just hasn’t surfaced yet. Over the coming years, I’m sure the government will relax its social media regulations and more western music will begin to influence young talented individuals, at which point I think China will explode with creativity. Globally, the electronic music scene is incredibly diverse, with genres and subgenres of house, dance, trap, dubstep and tech filling the charts; none more prominent than the current Electronic Dance Music, or EDM, which has become synonymous for hard hitting 4x4 bass drum and heavily reverbed snare on the 4th beat. Hugely popular at festivals all over America, these producers/DJs

are commanding hundreds of thousands of dollars for live performances, but effectively everyone is playing the same music as the next. Of course there are exceptions, for the most part, Shanghai hasn’t quite learned to embrace the good stuff just yet as people focus more on the location of their table, who will be in attendance, the exclusivity of the club, and how drunk they can get on dice games. This is proven territory in Shanghai, renowned for its dance floors that are the size of a postage stamp. Through the creation of my new record label “Vous Records”, I have already started making

inroads with the DJ community of Shanghai. Future stars like Noel Sanger, DJ Dirty Draws, Ad Brown, and DJ@War have signed on to the label and I look forward to working with many others in a collaborative effort. The question is, “How can I get the public to modify its ways and rediscover music not based on the scene but on the quality of the music?” The scene in Shanghai is one where dance music dominates as opposed to bands. This can be attested to by all of the big name DJs playing gigs here with a Top 100 DJ number attached to their name. Names such as Deadmau5 (no pun intended), David Guetta,

Armin Van Buuren, Steve Aoki, and Skrillex have all graced the clubs of Shanghai at one time or another. The reality is, that like most aspiring DJ’s, they cut their teeth at clubs where people strictly went for the music, and not for the scene where Shanghai seems to drink the Kool-Aid of the latter, hopefully without the result of Jonestown. As a DJ in Shanghai, the sound of dice clanking around in a cup is a sign that you have made it into the world of the pretty people where music takes a backseat to how cool one looks. DJs are not supposed to have their beats nestled alongside the sound of shaken dice and it should most certainly not be viewed as an additional form of percussion, but that is how it goes here. Unfortunately without the dice, what excuse do the girls have to get drunk and perform a walk of shame the following morning…? Shanghai’s time in the dance music spotlight is definitely coming, but it’s a while off yet. Just be ready when it does finally arrive, I’m sure it’s going to be spectacular. I’m Spencer Tarring, formerly and maybe more notoriously known as DJ Spenny. As M1NT’s Music Director & Resident DJ, I’m currently setting up my record label Vous Records, working with some big LA based artists and introducing them to China in new and inventive ways.

Jazzy Roots Sprout A Growing Scene Casey Hall

Shanghai might proclaim to be a “jazz capital” in its tourism marketing materials, but is it really? Though undoubtedly the Asian center of the genre in its jazz age heyday, where is Shanghai’s re-emergent modern scene at in 2013? Talk sat down with many of the folks who have been following, and in many ways forming, the reawakening of jazz in the city to find out.


uring Shanghai’s jazz age, from the 1920s until the formation of the People’s Republic in 1949, musicians were streaming into the city from around the world, and especially around Asia, to play the jazzy swing tunes popular at the time in Shanghai’s numerous dancehalls. Andrew Field first came to Shanghai in the mid-90s to study the city’s jazz age and has since written a book, Shanghai’s Dancing World: Cabaret Culture and Urban Politics, 1919-1954, about those aforementioned dancehalls. According to Field, it was Shanghai’s elite, particularly Westerners, who encouraged the introduction of jazz in the city, as they wanted to get their groove on to the same kind of tunes that were being played in clubs across the Western world, from New York, to London and Paris. “That’s how the Jazz Age started, but I think what also happened was that Chinese society took up the rhythms of jazz and made it their own, created their own modern style of pop music in the 20s and 30s,” he said. Li Jinhui [see boxed text] and his band of merry (for a little while anyway) orphans and other assorted outcasts started a musical movement fusing Western and Chinese styles. Surpassing everyone’s expectations, including Li’s, their fresh, jazz and swing-inspired tunes caught the public’s imagination and became known as China’s original pop music. Before long however, the boom in jazz music became bourgeois and local musicians either stopped playing

altogether, or took their craft underground, playing at small, private parties risking serious repercussions, to play the old standards loved by many Shanghainese. Chen Xianguo was just a boy when the Communists came to power, but he had already acquired a taste for jazz, having followed his older brothers and sisters to clubs to hear the foreign musical stylings of American and Filipino bands (the latter were numerous at the time because they were both technically capable and cheaper to hire than Western musicians; not dissimilar to Shanghai’s cover band situation of today). “Jazz has actually always been able to represent how I am feeling, it makes me really happy. If you are feeling annoyed, if things are bothering you, you can just listen to some music and give yourself a good feeling,” Chen told Talk in the lobby lounge of the Peace Hotel as a young lady in a qipao played gu zheng (a traditional Chinese string instrument) in the background. We are at the Peace Hotel, because that is where Chen works. Not that he calls it work. As a trumpeter in the hotel’s world famous Old Jazz Band, Chen is now making up for many years without his instrument and he has no plans to quit anytime soon, pointing out that their band’s oldest member is about to turn 90 (almost 20 years the sprightly 72 year old’s senior) and still going strong. “For a long time we kept our love of jazz music a secret because it was thought of as unhealthy music. Listening to any kind of music, maybe especially jazz, was not okay. We normally didn’t get to listen to jazz at

all. Sometimes we would quietly listen and play at a friend’s house, but it wasn’t so simple, we couldn’t let anyone see us or hear us,” Chen explained. But come 1980, virtually as soon as Deng Xiaoping reopened China to the world, Chen and his fellow Old Jazz Band members were back in business, playing long lost – though never forgotten – jazz standards to appreciative audiences. Thirty years since jazz has been back on Shanghai’s radar, the genre is again developing quickly, being embraced by more and more people who encountered the return of the old Shanghai standards at five-star hotels in the 1980s, then more modern representations of the genre with the opening of Cotton Club and House of Blues and Jazz in the 1990s.

By 2000, Ren Yuqing, a rock’n’roll musician best known for playing bass guitar in Cui Jian’s band, decided to come to Shanghai, even as his friends in Beijing pronounced the city a cultural wasteland. Ren’s Shanghainese grandfather had told him tales of this city’s great jazz age and the musician, who was getting into jazz in a big way, decided it was time to really get the party started again. He opened JZ Club in 2003 and in the past decade has seen the scene grow exponentially. “Shanghai has always had this international feel and people are really open to picking up new things, like

Shanghai’s Jazz History: Who’s Who Li Jinhui

international music,” Ren explained over a late-night latte at the club. “I think [jazz in Shanghai] is booming. I think back to 2003 when we opened JZ, there would only have been 1,000 people who liked jazz in the whole city, but now I think there are hundreds of thousands of people who like jazz,” he said. “At that time only one or two foreign bands would come to Shanghai per year, but now we have top bands coming every month. The world also sees this thing is happening, because all the stars are contacting with me and saying, ‘Hey man, I want to come to Shanghai.’” As well as a growing roster of impressive international acts gracing Shanghai stages, the last decade has also seen the rise of a new generation of homegrown Chinese jazz musicians. Many of these artists initially trained as classical musicians before being exposed to jazz and, in many cases, were mentored by the foreign musicians taking up residence in Shanghai jazz clubs.

Coco Zhao is perhaps the most famous local jazz vocalist in Shanghai, and is no exception to the classically trained rule, having attended Shanghai’s Music Conservatory as a promising oboe player before stumbling upon the road to jazz. He sees jazz as a perfect musical fit for his adopted city, with both exuding internationalism and a fusion of influences. “Shanghai has always been a good fit for jazz. Both the city and the musical genre have a lot of space for improvisation, and Shanghai is a city where different cultures and different people live together. Jazz is also a music form which can mix and accommodate all kinds of music styles and elements as well,” Zhao said. Musically, Zhao and his contemporaries, including

Peng Fei, Huang Jianyi and Li Xiaochuan, are also working to infuse their own cultural identity, as well as Shanghai’s jazz legacy, into their music. Though intrinsically an American art form, Zhao points out that regionally specific jazz styles have already emerged in other parts of the world and been accepted into the canon – he sites Africa and South America as two such examples – and one day, he hopes to see a distinctive “Chinese jazz” emerge. “We are all expanding jazz as a musical form with personal touches from a Chinese musician's point of view,” he said. “I am sure there will be more and more Chinese musicians who will add more flavors on this never ending road of music and creation.” Though all those Talk interviewed for this feature are excited about the evolution of Shanghai’s jazz scene, they are, on the whole, still a little hesitant to proclaim the city a jazz capital of the world. For now, that is. “I would definitely say that jazz is a big part of the musical identity of this city, both in terms of the imaginary identity of the city and in terms of the historical legacy,” Andrew Field said. “I certainly feel as though jazz in this city is very well nurtured, and it will continue to be more and more important. So I think the city is living up to its imagined legacy and I think, given the current trends, we will see more and more growth in the jazz scene, and more and more Chinese people will be introduced to jazz in one way or another.” Ren Yuqing is also, unsurprisingly, a believer in the future of Shanghai’s jazz scene. According to the rocker-cum-impresario, as young people get more and more exposure to jazz, the momentum of the movement will only get stronger. “I think everything will continue and we will get more and more good young musicians in China coming up and more international artists will come to Shanghai, which will help China’s music scene,” he said. “Jazz is like a key, when you use this key to open the door, you also see on the other side of the door reggae and hip-hop, flamenco and a lot of different kinds of things. It’s the key to a lot of different and interesting music and I hope for the future, more and more young people can have the chance to get in touch with good music. Music is really the language of the world.”

The father of Shanghai’s initial homegrown popular music movement, Li Jinhui was the first to mix the jazz standards being played by Western musicians in Shanghai with traditional Chinese folk music, with a traditionally Chinese (read: high pitched and somewhat nasal) singing style. Though his original intention was to spread a standardized form of the Mandarin language throughout China by teaching these simple songs to children, the tunes caught the public’s imagination and soon became ubiquitous. Li’s brand of music was known as “yellow music” because many believed it to be pornographic and salacious, but before long, it was not only the sound emanating from risqué dancehalls, but was also the soundtrack to Shanghai’s burgeoning film scene. As a young man, Li was known as a nationalist and patriot, but his success put him offside with both serious Nationalists and Communists. He was eventually persecuted to death during the Cultural Revolution in 1967.

Zhou Xuan Zhou Xuan was the most famous singer of Shanghai’s jazz era and was known as “Golden Voice”. An orphan, Zhou was passed from home to home until Li Junhui adopted her and made her the star of his (soonto-be infamous) singing troupe at the age of 13. Her career really took off with the launch of Shanghai’s film industry and she would often be the star of the show both on the screen and on the soundtrack of the era’s bestknown films. They say that success doesn’t equal happiness, and this was especially true for Zhou Xuan following the ascension of the Communist Party in 1949. She would spend the next decade in and out of mental institutions and her tumultuous life was marked by failed marriages, illegitimate children and suicide attempts before she finally succumbed to encephalitis in 1957 at the age of 39.

Nie Er When Nie Er was just a young musician fresh off the train from Yunnan, Li Junhui discovered him and trained him alongside his stable of starlets. Though he was something of a musical prodigy, Nie found it hard to concentrate on his music at first, and was living the good life in decadent 1930’s Shanghai. That all changed when the Japanese attacked the city in 1931, Nie was caught up in the nationalist fervor, joined the Communist Party and denounced his mentor, Li, and his bourgeois musical ways. Unfortunately for Nie, he would not live to see his beloved Communist Party take power. He drowned at the tender age of 23, but managed to leave a pretty major musical legacy before his death. His song, “March of the Volunteers”, is now better known as China’s national anthem. September13  TalkMagazine




JZ’s Festival of

Jazz Begins… Casey Hall

And just keeps going and going! Starting this month, Shanghai punters get the opportunity to soak up a whole month of jazz-related shows, from the two-day Sennheiser Green Note event, to the BMW Master Hall performances, plus a smattering of live shows in between.


ow in its ninth year, the JZ Festival has grown so big, they’ve had to split the event into three parts. The two-day outdoor festival is still there, now known as Sennheiser Green Note. It’s running from 20th to 21st September in Expo Park with more than 40 acts playing over

eight stages. Following on from this weekend extravaganza will be Jazz Around Town, from 22th September to 14th October, which features jazz performances around Shanghai’s parks, streets, hotels and clubs by local and international performers for free (yes, you read that correctly, free). Finally, this feast of a jazz festival concludes with part three, the BMW Master Hall performances from 15th to 19th October, where some of the world’s most sought after jazz musicians will strut their stuff for Shanghai audiences. If you are interested in getting your jazz on at JZ Festival, but don’t know where to start, never fear, Talk Magazine is here with our pick of who to see and where to be throughout Shanghai’s season of jazz. More information about JZ Festival acts and scheduling can be found at

Lisa Ono No stranger to Chinese audiences, Lisa Ono is known as the queen of Bossa Nova with good reason (mainly because she absolutely is the queen of Bossa Nova). Born in Brazil, to Japanese parents, Ono’s appealing voice and rhythmic guitar skills have broken down barriers between musical genres and continents, opening up many parts of Asia to the previously unfamiliar sounds of Bossa Nova. If you happen upon this set, don’t be surprised if the urge to tap your feet and swing your hips gets out of control.

Robert Glasper Experiment + Yasiin Bey f.k.a. Mos Def Bringing New York roots music to Shanghai with a bang will be jazz pianist Robert Glasper and his partner in crime – well, music actually – Yasiin Bey (formerly and probably still better known as Mos Def) who has been a regular on best MC and lyricist lists all over the music press since he started his hip hop career in the late 90s. Seeing the truly talented Bey/Def rapping over the top of Glasper’s array of arrangements, is sure to be a treat – expect these guys to bring a serving of Soul and RnB alongside their rootsy feel.

Coco Zhao Speaking of being no stranger to Shanghai audiences, it’s actually hard to imagine a JZ Festival without the inimitable Coco Zhao. Originally accepted into the Shanghai Conservatory of Music as an oboe player, Zhao discovered jazz in the early 90s and has been one of Shanghai’s most sought after jazz vocalists ever since. Much of Zhao’s career has been spent acting as something of a bridge between Chinese musical heritage and the growing influence of modern Western musical genres in the country. Sennheiser Green Note, 20 September, 5:30pm. Web: www.

Yoga Lin

The Brand New Heavies This UK group has been at the forefront of the acid jazz and funk movements for almost 30 years, occasionally incorporating more RnB and hip hop into their sound on some albums. Over the years, the group has had a revolving list of female vocalists, with that mantle currently being shared by N’Dea Davenport, who had her first stint fronting the Heavies in the early 90s, and Dawn Joseph. This prolific, hard-working band is equal parts funky and good fun – be sure to bring your dancing shoes.

Taiwanese Mandopop star, Yoga Lin, may have shot to fame after winning the debut season of television singing contest, “One Million Star”, but since then he has become equally wellknown for his impressive vocal range and decidedly mixed-genre song choices. Continuing this history of unpredictable choices, Lin released a jazz album this year and will almost certainly be singing some standards from it at this year’s JZ Festival.

Helen Sung Quartet

Ibrahim Maalouf

Jack DeJohnette A Grammy-winning jazz drummer, pianist and composer, Jack DeJohnette is probably best known as being a key figure in the fusion era of jazz. A career spanning five decades and collaborations with greats such as Freddie Hubbard, Keith Jarrett, Sonny Rollins, Miles Davis, Joe Henderson, and John Scofield has cemented DeJohnette’s position as one of the most influential drummers of the 20th century. From DeJohnette’s Shanghai show, you can expect a number of stylistic influences, from hard bop, to RnB, avant-garde and everything in between. BMW Master Hall, 17 October, 8pm. Web: www. jackdejohnette. com

A pioneering figure in the world of contemporary jazz thanks to his fusion of pop, soul, electro, hip-hop, and French chansons with the music of his Lebanese roots, trumpeter Ibrahim Maalouf is the highest selling jazz act in France. Prior to his work in jazz music, Maalouf pursued a classical career – which gives you an idea of his technical abilities – while his current brand of music is strongly influenced by Arabic culture. For his Shanghai show, Maalouf is planning a mix of contemporary rock, electro and jazz funk flavor. Look out for his signature mystical musical interlude – which he calls a “collective universal prayer” – it’s a feature of all his live shows. BMW Master Hall, 15 October, 8pm. Web: www.

John Scofield and the Überjam Band How any musical group that combines the words “über” and “jam” in their name can possibly not be amazing is beyond us, and thankfully, this reunited group lives up to the hype. John Schofield is known for pioneering the fusion of jazz, funk and electric music and is currently known as one of the world’s “big three” guitarists (along with Pat Metheny and Bill Frisell). Expect to hear Schofield’s distinctive rock-oriented sound, and masterful jazz improvisations, with the musical spectrum covered from post-bop to jazz soul. BMW Master Hall, 18 October, 8pm. Web:

Though her family name betrays some Chinese ancestry, Helen Sung is actually a native of Houston, Texas, and was a prize-winning classical pianist until jazz intervened and stole her heart. Since graduating from the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance, Sung has won the Kennedy Center’s Mary Lou Williams Jazz Piano Competition and has cultivated a reputation for captivating listeners with her soulful and smart musical performances, punctuated by irresistible grooves. At her Shanghai show, Sung will play many of her own original compositions, as well as works by Monk and other jazz greats. BMW Master Hall, 16 October, 8pm. Web:

Patti Austin JZ Festival’s number one diva (and we mean that with the upmost respect) Ms Austin has made 17 solo albums, performed her award-nominated hits songs at the Grammy and Oscar awards and, all the while, has crossed a variety of musical genres wining legions of fans with her musicality. Austin’s performing career started at the age of four and the 63-year-old is now one of the most beloved jazz vocalists, with her albums a virtual constant on the Billboard Jazz Albums charts. At her Shanghai show, Austin plans to showcase her jazz pop stylistic works; a sure crowd-pleaser. BMW Master Hall, 19 October, 8pm. Web:

Sennheiser Green Note tickets are RMB 200 (presale) and RMB 250 (on door) per day, and there are no two-day packages available for this year’s festival. BMW Master Hall shows have tickets available from RMB 280 to RMB 1,280. Tel: 962388. Web:

Local Talk: Eco Village, Fenglin Lu

Charli Lees

Relatively new to Shanghai, the Eco Village complex at 485 Fenglin Lu, near Zhongshan Nan Er Lu is home to an array of shops and cafes, all of which promote sustainability and environmentally friendly principles. The converted textile warehouse has been taken over and completely renovated by the natural and personal care company, Eco & More, which has a branch on site. Although the area is still not completely finished it

is a diamond in the rough, with new businesses frequently moving into the complex. These include a gym, the Eco & More store and an organic fruit and produce market, opening between September and October. However, you can still find brilliant sustainable produce right now so it is definitely worth a visit. Make sure you check out the hidden gem of a roof terrace, in which a sustainable garden is currently being cultivated.

Sprout Lifestyle

Growing from the popularity of their health hub in Surpass Court, Sprout Lifestyle has launched a café in the Eco Village, to continue their quest to promote a green lifestyle and healthy habits. Not only are there tasty snacks stocked with superfoods to savor at the café, such as the bestselling refreshing watermelon mint smoothie (perfect on a hot day), but also readymade meals to take home, so that eating healthily becomes convenient as well as tasty. The café has a friendly vibe and members of staff are more than happy to advise and recommend dishes and drinks to suit you and your health goals. The sprouts served are freshly grown in the Eco Village’s sustainable garden, so the menu is always changing with the seasons and new produce. is a cute boutique, specializing in beautiful clothing items and promoting local designers. Quality is definitely valued over quantity, as each design is only produced a couple of times, which makes each piece unique and noteworthy. The store is attempting to change the typical model of clothes being mass-produced in poor working conditions and instead has the motto, ‘Responsibly Made In China’, making it the perfect clothing store for the Eco Village.

Eco & More

Created by Shanghai resident Jeni Saeyang, after feeling there was a lack of products committed to environmentally friendly practices, Eco & More has expanded as a business for developing green but affordable products. From home necessities such as cleaning products, to little luxuries such as candles and lotions, Eco & More provides products safe from unnecessary chemicals and toxins, but without the expensive price tag usually associated with ‘being green’. The company has recently won an excellence award for sustainable development and Saeyang is the brains behind the Eco Village. The candles, made in store and enriched with imported essential oils and plant extracts, are a must have. Our favourite is the new 100% Soy Wax Candles (RMB 220)

Corazon Cupcakes

For a sweet snack, Corazon Cupcakes has the answer. Not only does the store have a range of cupcake flavors and frostings, ranging from classic lemon and vanilla to sweet potato and Baileys; there are also cakepops, treat lollipops and cookies. The company also makes cakes to order, so for a special occasion, this is a great personal gift. With MidAutumn Festival this month, Corazon is also making a special mooncake themed cupcake and has a range of back to school cupcakes for September. Corazon Cupcakes.

relationship or life advice from a celibate religious leader who hasn’t lived a life remotely like yours; or fitness advice from a steroid-user who would have a harder time trying to get fat than thin isn’t going to cut it…but that IS what fitness advice is. Especially in the online world, most of what you read is BS.

ou may occasionally watch a film and are utterly willing to immerse yourself and ride along with the stereotypical, typecast performance. You know its utter garbage when James Bond comes out with his ridiculous one-liners; or you may have seen the joke coming a mile off in an old ‘Friends’ re-run, but you go with it anyway. It’s all-good, 100% corny and is meant to be that way. However, it’s different when it comes to things that affect your life directly. I am inquisitive by nature and always want to know facts. Thus, societal oxymoronic norms such as

Like many of you out there who have a constant battle with hunger, the advice from the chemically enhanced gurus isn’t going to work. The issue is this: leptin controls how full you feel, and those with chunkier body types have a certain degree

of resistance to this hormone. That means if there is resistance, there will be a greater portion of the day and night where you will be susceptible to physical and mental stress associated with hunger. It’s the cards you were dealt, but you can affect it to a certain degree. The way to combat this is to eat of course, but we want to be as smart as we can so we don’t gain weight; use the science and face it head on. Now, I’m well aware that I could get a name for myself here as ‘That Soup Guy’, but this is the simplest way to beat hunger for the least amount of calories. Most importantly, this is proven by scientific research. Imagine, you take a meal, the control group eats with a chopstick/knife and fork and the study group blends the same food with water into a thick soup. The result is this: The study group feels full sooner, and for longer.


Therefore the souper group eats less and needs to eat less again that day. It’s as simple as that. The soup must be thick though, which means the obvious choices are vegetable, pumpkin, pea, lentil… that type of thing. The hardest part of any change in eating habits is the first 2-3 days. After this time, the body becomes able to use leptin better. Many attribute this to a shrinking of the stomach (it isn’t but the result is the same)… you need to eat less than you did before without the feelings of hunger. Make a big pan, put it in individual portion containers and throw them in the freezer. A regular sized pumpkin is around 300 calories and it makes a whole lot of soup!

Trim Up For Autumn Charli Lees

With summer slipping away, fashion can seem to stagnate in the autumn as more layers are put on and darker colors take precedence. As it gets colder, our clothes begin to match the dull weather as warm jumpers and trousers become the outfits of choice. However, this does not need to be the case, as the Autumn/Winter catwalks showed; costume jewelry and simple embellishment can breathe new life into a dull ensemble.


f you are looking to revamp your winter wardrobe, and add color or a new design to your clothes, Shanghai markets might just have the solution you are looking for. The Yu Gardens Trim and Fabric Market is a fashion lover’s paradise, filled to the brim with little stores containing hoards of material, buttons, fur and feathers. For a couple of RMB, you can transform your outfit by adding a string of pearls to a headband, lace to a skirt or even rhinestones on your shoes. We went with the mission of finding items to recreate catwalk trends for everyday wear. There is a lot to see and choose between in the market, so we would recommend spending at least a whole afternoon to really look properly at the stalls and find little treasures to add to your wardrobe.

The Classic Bangle, in the style of Alexander McQueen’s Virgin Queen Couture look at Paris Fashion Week.

The Simple Shirt

The Simple Shirt’s collar tip detailing is shown in Valentino’s striking Ready to Wear Collection for this upcoming season.

Customizing clothes can be tricky, especially if you are not a sewing expert. However, for beginners, we found that adding to a plain shirt is definitely the easiest option. While always a staple in your wardrobe, especially for the office, your shirt does not have to remain plain to emulate simple style. We took inspiration from Valentino’s Ready to Wear collection, with their bold shirt collars and detailed cuffs. We added simple pearl style buttons, white lace flower detailing to the cuffs and striking collar tips to our oversized sheer shirt. With a bit of simple sewing, your old shirt is reborn yet is still appropriate for both smart and casual wear. Collar tips are our top recommendation, but other designs and stones are available at all good fabric markets if you are feeling confident.

The Classic Bracelet

Pearls are always an elegant addition to any outfit and were seen frequently in extreme necklaces and headwear on the catwalks this season, particularly Alexander McQueen, in both rebellious and regal looks. To achieve this look, but without spending the big bucks, simulated pearl strings can be bought at the

market for under RMB 10. Pearls attached to bangles were particularly eye catching on the catwalks and stood out as a must have statement piece. We were able to achieve this look at the market for only RMB 30, some glue and patience.

The Embellished Headband Taking inspiration from Givenchy’s floral headwear, we decided to keep summer alive in Shanghai and made a floral headband, a great way to bring some colour to the autumn months. This look can be difficult to make, especially finding the right flowers, but we used a bouquet of fake flowers that we then sewed onto lace, before attaching to a plain headband.

The Embellished Headband inspired by Givenchy’s Ready to Wear Collection floral headwear


South Bund Fabric Market

Yu Gardens Trimming Market

The South Bund Fabric Market is jam packed with tailors and fabric shops. If you aren’t confident enough with your own customization or want a particular outfit made, this is the place to go. Many of the stalls and shops have their own tailors on site, so we recommend going with a picture of what you want, to make the process a little easier.

Renmin Lu, near Henan Lu. Open daily 10am to 6pm

399 Lujiabang Lu, near Zhongshan Nan Lu. Open daily 10am to 7pm

Hong Qiao New World Pearl Market

Qipu Lu Clothing Market

This market has more than just pearls, and is spread out over three floors with a variety of items. The freshwater and cultured pearls in the market are supposedly priced at a sixth of the price you would pay in the US or UK, so you are certain to find some brilliant bargains (especially with some bartering).

Qipu Lu Clothing Market is the largest wholesale and retail clothing market in Shanghai. There is a lot of choice, with items catered for local consumers as well as the expat market. For emerging trends at low prices, Qipu Lu is the place to go, but we suggest making an early morning weekday trip, to avoid the crowds.

3,721 Hongmei Lu, near Ya’nan Xi Lu. Open daily 10am to 10pm

168 & 183 Qipu Lu, near Henan Bei Lu. Open daily 6:30am to 6pm

If you are feeling inventive, customizing with charms from the trimming market is definitely the way forward. This market is a brilliant find if you have a spare weekend and it really puts the fun back into winter fashion, with the individuality you can bring to your old clothes.

Navigating the Golden Triangle Ting Ting Lin and Eric Sweigard


itting just 50 kilometers south of the notorious Golden Triangle convergence of Thailand, Myanmar, and Laos, Chiang Rai is Thailand's northernmost major city. A jumble of night markets, ornate dedications to the King, and food stalls offering delicious Northern Thai curries, the city is rapidly gaining the attention of tourists. While one could spend days wandering the hectic streets of Chiang Rai, during our visit, we used the city as a jumping off point to explore the beautiful scenery in and around Northern Thailand. Our stay began at Bamboo Nest de Chiang Rai, a collection of thatched roof bungalows 40 minutes west of town.

18 TalkMagazine 


On a hillside overlooking terraced rice paddies, we were surrounded by the serenity of complete isolation. Our hut offered no modern amenities, but the stunning views, delicious homemade meals, and hospitality one could only find in the 'Land of Smiles' were more than enough to compensate. We scheduled a 2-day trek exploring the area around Bamboo Nest. Noi, our guide, led us through the jungle, hacking a path with his machete as we went. He had amazing English, loved sharing information about the plants, animals, and people we encountered along the way, and filled the silence with a series of noises and songs. His incredibly obedient dog, Khaw, accompanied us the whole way.

After hours of arduous hiking, we reached a village so remote it’s rarely visited by foreigners. The village was home to the Lahu ethnic minority, a group that originally descended from Tibet. An old friend of Noi’s took us in. His wife and daughter had left him a few months earlier and Noi worried about his crippling opium addiction. We explored the village and met some of the local children who were fascinated by our camera equipment. As night fell, Noi prepared a dinner consisting of the bamboo, vegetables, mushrooms, and herbs he had foraged along our hike. Exhausted, we enjoyed our meal by candlelight before dozing off. The second day of the trek was much less strenuous. We made our way

through a few more Lahu villages until we reached a boat that took us downriver to a traditional Ahka village. The Ahka people are a nomadic tribe, also originally from Tibet. Some of the Akha women maintain their traditional way of dress and almost all maintain the practice of chewing betel nut and limestone paste wrapped in clove leaves. What little of their teeth isn’t ground away after years of chewing this combination is stained a deep blackish red by the betel nut. Once back in Chiang Rai, we rented a motorbike with plans to take a few day trips to sights near Chiang Rai. The first day of our rental we drove about 65km north to the border town


of Tachileik, Myanmar. Once across the border, we hired a tuk tuk driver to take us around to a few local attractions: a Shan meditation temple, Shwedagon pagoda where we were led in a prayer ceremony, and a “gem” market. We were dropped off back at the border crossing and had about an hour to explore a nearby market. Though our visit was very brief, the people of Myanmar left an impression as incredibly friendly and gracious hosts. The next day we rode our bike to Mae Salong, a village high in the mountainous region northwest of Chiang Rai. The village is home to a Chinese Kuomintang refugee community, originally settled by the

troops of the Republic of China Army’s 93rd Division who refused to surrender after the Communist victory in 1949. Instead, they fought their way out of China and into Burma where they hid in the jungles until granted asylum in Thailand. Once the epicenter of the opium trade, the poppy fields have since been replaced by fields of tea. The village felt like a return to China. Most of the residents spoke Chinese and all of the street signs and business names were written in Chinese characters. We spent the day eating delicious Yunnanese noodles, visiting a chedi dedicated to the king’s mother, and zipping around the beautiful scenery as we got more confident taking hairpin turns on the motorbike.

Daily flights on Thai Airways and China Eastern connect Shanghai and Chiang Rai, with stopovers in Bangkok and Kunming respectively. Book a bungalow at Bamboo Nest well in advance by emailing If instead you choose to stay closer to the heart of the city, Baan Malai Guesthouse is an great affordable and centrally located option. While in town, head to Barrab Restaurant near the clock tower


to try Khao Soi, a classic Northern Thai combination of crispy egg noodles and boiled rice noodles served with a curry sauce. To reach Mae Salong and Myanmar, rent a motorbike from ST Motorcycle on Jetyod Road. However you choose to fill your time in Chiang Rai, you're certain to be blown away by the beautiful scenery and incredibly hospitable people.

Mifan Mama’s Shining Star Foster Home Charli Lees


ifan Mama, or rice mother, was founded in Shanghai in 2009, with the aim to better the lives of Chinese orphans, through providing basic necessities such as clothing, medical care, food and education. Since then, Mifan Mama has grown as an organization and now has specialized projects, such as helping orphaned children through school and even to college level education. Talk went to find out about one of the largest projects Mifan Mama is currently working on, Shining Star Foster Home in Minhang district. Shining Star specialised in care for children who are blind or partially sighted and therefore need additional help with their learning and personal development, something the orphanages may not always be able to provide. We went to visit the home and met with Julie Garrett, Operations Manager and founder of Shining Star, to find out more about the organization. Presently there are six children in the home, aged from one and a half to eight year olds. Eight is the age when the children are encouraged to move back into an orphanage; going into mainstream fostering or orphanage. Shining Star focuses on getting the children ready for school and gives them the skills to be able to lead a normal life with their disability. At Shining Star we also met with local

20 TalkMagazine 


volunteers. Mifan Mama always encourage people to get involved whether it is directly engaging with the children, or working on the fundraising and local awareness of the project. All children have their own individual lessons and schedules, in order to get their education to a level at which they could join a school and thus encouraging their independence. Not only do the children receive this personal attention for

their own development, but they are also frequently taken on day trips to the city or even just the local mall or supermarket to gain exposure to everyday life. This practical learning is highly beneficial. As within ordinary orphanages, this level of individual care is more difficult to cater for due to the large numbers of children living there. These day trips, for example to a soft play center, also provide opportunites for interaction

with local children and discussions about their differences, which is something those who work at Shining Star encourage for the children’s learning and understanding. Another learning curve the children encounter is the large volume of volunteers who come and go frequently. This is also encouraged by Garrett, who explained that this teaches the children to understand that in life, people are not always going to be around and that things move on, as they will, eventually, from Shining Star. It is inspiring to see such young children dealing with adversity. They appreciate how far their learning and social abilities have developed since being introduced to Shining Star. We also discovered at the end of our visit that two of the children will have their congenital cataracts removed, which means they can gain partial sight. Without the help of Shining Star and their donors helping with medical care, this could never have occurred. It was an educational and humbling visit and we would encourage anyone based in Shanghai to get involved with the organization.

Reflections On Identity And Self-Perception


Cheng Chen - ink on paper

Casey Hall


hough OV Gallery takes the name of its current exhibition, “I’ll Be Your Mirror” from the Velvet Underground song of the same title, the true inspiration for the exhibition came from an artwork by Jiangsu-born artist Wu Gaozhong. His “Mirror Frame” series of sculptures takes mirrors as a starting point, before their surface is painted and covered in animal fur, removing their original ability to reflect. OV Gallery curator, Rebecca Catching, saw the pieces at a studio in Beijing and was instantly inspired. “They’re interesting because they are mirrors but not reflective at all. It made be think about how we see ourselves and how we understand who we really are. We think we see ourselves really well, but actually we don’t,” she said. The encounter was enough to spur Catching to search out other works looking at a similar theme and eventually bringing them together for a group show featuring the work of eight artists, all of whom approach their subject matter using a variety of methodologies and materials. Alongside Wu Gaozhong’s mirrors are drawings on joss paper documenting the personal principles of Ailadi Cortelletti, who set Catching’s pulse racing when she ceremonially burned some of them at the opening as a way of freeing herself from the burden of personal expectation.

“I’ll be your mirror Reflect what you are, in case you don’t know I’ll be the wind, the rain and the sunset The light on your door to show that you’re home” – Velvet Underground Wu Gaozhong

Zheng Wenxin

Zheng Wenxin’s seven-meter painting is difficult to sum up in only a few words, but is centered around a glass box containing a strange home environment complete with sparse furnishings and a striped wall, lit like an operating theatre, and surrounded by children’s toys, a ship and a number of doors and stairways leading from the main area, perhaps leading to the more hidden parts of the psyche or subconscious mind. “In this piece she’s looking at how we compartmentalize ourselves, so we think we are a certain entity or kind of person, but actually, we are much more than that, more than we imagine ourselves to be,” Catching explains. Portraits in varying forms also make an appearance, including Wang Taocheng’s unique “silk wrapped” series which

are preoccupied not only with the human subjects, in this case five contemporary artists living and working in Europe, but also with dimension as they are built on layers of materials. Meanwhile, Yunnan-born, Beijing-based artist, Shi Jing, also plays with the dimensions of portraiture by painting a series of portraits, each of which reveals two different sides of the subject depending upon the angle and light. Hong Kong-based artists David Boyce and Adrian Wong have also contributed portraits to the show, “Affective Portraits” is a collaborative work that takes old-style family portraits as a starting point. But rather than the forced emotion and fake smiles which are traditionally part and parcel of the medium, Wong and

David Boyce

Yang Liwei - oil on canvas

Boyce worked at bringing out real emotion in the subjects – by recounting a sad memory, watching a disturbing video, chopping onion or smelling seafood that had been sitting in the sun for the day. In the process, Boyce explains, they subvert the “rules” of traditional portraiture, which carries with it the idea of “unvarnished truth” – they are meant to be accurate reflections of their subjects, though in truth they are often anything but, with the artificial portraiture environment leading to subjects masking any sense of their real persona or emotional state with what Boyce calls a “cookie-cutter smile”. “These portraits give a different reading on the idea of what people are,” he said. “It’s looking at conveying things that people wouldn’t normally convey, emotions of fear, joy, ecstasy, anger – the things that we usually keep inside us.” The portraits are displayed on the walls of a manufactured home environment within the gallery, with painted walls, as well as furniture and potted plants imported from Catching’s own home now part of the installation, which Boyce believes is an important part of inviting the audience in to experience the portraits. “I’m a big believer in the audience being a part of the work, so the audience will have their own reaction to the work,” he said. “I’d like to think some people will find them uplifting. I’m sure other people will find them depressing, some people will not find them anything at all.” “I’ll Be Your Mirror” runs until 11 September (closed Mondays) at OV Gallery, Room 207, Building 4A, 50 Moganshan Lu.

ART NEWS Li Xinhui Solo Exhibition @ FQ Projects

“Galaxy “ is an exhibition celebrating Li Xinhui’s 20 years of painting the stars. Born into a family of literati, Li has loved painting stars since childhood. “I still believed the answers to every single question reside in each flickering star. Every time I took a stick or a rock and drew stars on the red mud, or white sand, on purple cliffs or on cement floors, the mysterious and serene stars would give me a feeling of peace and security. Placing myself within them, it seems I also became serene and transparent,” Li said. This exhibition presents two series of Li Xinhui’s early works, one of which happened to coincide with the turning period in China’s art scene when high art met rebellion, while the other discusses the relationship between individuals and the collective. “Galaxy” is showing until 12 September at FQ Projects, No. 76, Lane 927 Huaihai Zhong Lu, near Nanchang Lu.

“The World's Longing for Lushan” @ Vanguard Gallery

Terracotta Daughters @ Galerie Magda Danysz

This exhibition from multi-disciplinary artist, Zhang Lehua, is based on the famous movie from the 1980s, “Romance on Lushan Mountain”. Having scaled the famed peak twice, Zhang has developed something of an obsession with the mountain and has created a number of paintings, photographs and videos based on its scenery and feeling. Being Zhang Lehua, there is a mischievous element to the work, with traditional forms and established rules inverted and ignored much of the time. One video work recreates scenes from the movie with a comedic bent, while scenery is etched into a steel ball, which is then heated and applied to surfaces to recreate the original image.

Prune Nourry is a multidisciplinary artist from France who has been preoccupied throughout her career with biotech and genetic evolution, particularly from a female perspective. Nourry’s most recent series, “Terracotta Daughters”, is composed by 108 life size sculptures that bear a striking resemblance to Xi’an’s famous Terracotta Soldiers, which are referenced not only in form, but also in a technical sense, with all sculptures made in collaboration with Chinese craftsmen who practice ancient molding technologies and make their living crafting reproductions of the soldiers. These figures, however, are not soldiers; they are actually 108 young girls who had their facial features artificially cross-paired from eight Chinese girls the artist found in local orphanages. Through the depictions of these manufactured girl figures, Nourry aims to provoke a discussion about woman’s social status.

Purring Along Mark Andrews


or a long time, Jaguar produced saloons that, while very British, were, to put it bluntly, boring – the type that might appeal to your aging uncle. However, the Jaguar XF, in a make or break moment, threw caution to the wind and produced a car that was cutting edge with those classic British characteristics. Despite its sports saloon looks, in China the Jaguar XF does not sell as well as the more staid German competition. Partly, this is due to it being import only and also, until recently, the lack of a small petrol engine hindered sales. In recent years, the Chinese luxury market has moved away from the large V6 and V8 engines that powered the Jaguar, and started to favor smaller turbo charged petrol engines. This all changed last year however with the introduction of a 2.0 liter turbo unit.

the locally made German competition. There is, in our top of the range Portfolio model, a choice of ten combinations of leather and headlining along with seven veneers, which match knurled aluminum with various woods or carbon fiber trims.

And it was this engine we were expecting in our test car, but it seems that this version is so popular, Jaguar was unable to supply us with one. Our car, resplendent in red, was supplied with the now top of the range 3.0l V6 unit. With its leaping Jaguar motif, this big cat cuts an entrance.

Equipment levels are comprehensive. Although the touch screen infotainment system can be switched to English, the GPS remains in Chinese. The driver and front passenger sit low with the dashboard and instrumentation wrapping around them. The level of luxury is impressive with the top of the dash swathed in leather and, in our version at least, the roof lined with suede like cloth.

Jaguar offers a level of interior customization unrivalled by any of

The Jaguar is leveled squarely as a driver’s car. In the rear seats, thanks to the

sloping roofline, taller passengers will have problems. While legroom is adequate, it is considerably less than with stretched cars for China such as the Audi A6L and BMW 5 series. Further limiting its appeal to Chinese consumers is the lack of cosseting for rear passengers who only get rear air vents and a power supply. Starting the car is sheer theatre, air vents rotate open and the gear selector dial rises out of the central console. Under normal driving conditions the V6 engine proves remarkably restrained despite all the power on tap. Even slipping the gear selector to S and using the paddle shifts does little to excite. It seems the key lies in the chequered flag symbol button located on the central console. Press that and the 8-speed gearbox holds down, shifts and the accelerator

responses stiffen giving rise to a throaty six-cylinder roar. On the road this cat lands on all fours and holds its poise. There is nothing artificial feeling about the steering here – turn the wheel and the car obliges by going exactly where you expect it too. Despite the sports bias of this car, it does a remarkably good job of soaking up the bumps of Chinese road surfaces. Jaguar Land Rover should start producing cars in China next year. As yet, there is no word as to whether the XF will be one of the models. Currently, due to it being imported, the Jaguar XF is more expensive than the competition and with no stretched version, shorter too. Prices start at RMB 550,000 for the Luxury 2.0T and rise to RMB 768,000 for the Portfolio trim 3.0l V6.

agaki, meaning ‘postcard’ in Japanese, is EAST, Beijing’s Californian-inspired Japanese restaurant. Hagaki’s signature Maki Rolls are worth the trip to EAST, Beijing alone.

New & Noted Jamie Barys

Ochobo What: 23 bite-sized tastes of Japan Where: 2/F, 20 Donghu Lu, near Huaihai Zhong Lu. Tel: 5404 7866 Why: You love Sushi Oyama & Kappo Yu


s soon as you walk into Ochobo, it’s obvious that the restaurant is cut from the same cloth as Sushi Oyama and Kappo Yu. Blond wood accents surround a central open kitchen, where the head chef and his team prep, cook and serve diners seated at the bar. All three are owned by Naoya Hirano, who prefers to play the silent partner to his limelighted chefs, and serve a kaiseki menu that evolves with the seasons and suppliers. Despite the similarities, Ochobo seems slightly more casual than its sister restaurants, with a noticeable drop in the attention to detail, but instead, a sheer celebration of the raw ingredients that makes eating at a Hirano restaurant such a rewarding experience. Where Sushi Oyama focuses on raw fish, Ochobo’s menu runs the gamut of Japanese cuisine, serving up a sprawling 23 course menu (RMB 580) of small bites - from sashimi to tempura to yakimono (grilled and pan-fried dishes). Chef Sun Jianguo shines brightest when serving raw fish, which shouldn’t come as a surprise. The Chinese chef has spent a decade working in

Japanese restaurants, and almost half of that time was under Takeo Oyam and Yohei Terada (of Kappo Yu), with whom he shares an enviable supplier list. The sashimi dishes come at the start of the meal and set a standard that the remainder of the menu can’t quite live up to. The first dish wows with its delicate presentation of bright orange uni sashimi balanced atop a silken slice of white tofu swimming in a pool of sweet cabbage soup. Creamy wild shrimp sashimi is like eating dense clouds, and the bite of fatty chutoro is so good it will send tingles down your spine.

But the menu started to take a turn with a salad of baby arugula and mullet roe cooked into dense salty slabs. Flavors became less nuanced with bolder strokes, like funky fermented shark’s cartilage. Plums dropped in a red wine sauce were unexpectedly over salted. Tempura dishes were hit (a nearly translucent scallop that received the briefest of baptisms in the hot oil bath) and miss (ebi deep-fried then doused in a seaweed powder that overwhelmed its sweet sea flavors). Grilled dishes were mostly forgettable, except for a duo of conger eel, which came served sizzling on a scorched-to-order iron plate. Ochobo’s menu will change monthly, and we’d be interested to see how they improve upon their first attempt. A seat at the bar earns you dinner and a show, as you watch rare steak being torched to order, tempura plunged into a wok of rumbling oil and sashimi elegantly sliced, but there is still room for improvement to turn all 23 courses into a meal worthy of the Naoya Hirano mantle.

attentive service when the waiters have nothing else to do, but if it’s crowded, you’ll come to acutely understand why it takes the Spanish several hours to finish a meal of small plates. First up on the menu are pintxos, or small Spanish snacks designed for bar eating. A simple Spanish Omelette (RMB 30) packed several inches high with cubed potatoes and fluffy eggs served with creamy warm aioli, started things off on the right track. Eggs don’t fare repetition in the tapas section. Broken eggs mixed with raw foie gras and salty Iberian ham clock in at a cool RMB 120, but the cubed fried potatoes that were unmentioned on the menu were the real meat of this dish. We get that starchy spuds provide a great foundation for sopping up all that gin, but the excessive use of potatoes across the menu feels lazy and cheap. Boiled Tender

Octopus Rubbed With Smoky Paprika (RMB 95) comes on a bed of thick-cut sautéed waxy Chinese potatoes with lingering oil residue. Deep-fried cubed potatoes returned in the “Chef ’s Special” (RMB 135), mingling with mushy prawns and gamey diced pig trotters. The only dishes we sampled that weren’t overwhelmingly potato-based were the Argentinian Beef Carpaccio (RMB 95) and Goat Cheese Salad (RMB 85). The former serves raw, metallic-tasting meat drizzled with a syrupy balsamic reduction and topped with a dusting of grated manchego and pungent arugula. The salad was in its own right delicious with its leafy lettuce, deep-fried croutons, toasted pinenuts and a slab of salty goat cheese. But the menu promised that the goat cheese would be stuffed with Iberico ham, and despite the fact we ordered it at both sit-downs, we didn’t see or taste a speck of jamon. Better value are the gin cocktails. Served in glasses that could double as fish bowls, the drinks, featuring 40 varietals of the juniper-flavored liquor with creative mixers such as coconut water and cucumber spice a la The Botanist Unusual (RMB 80), spiced up the typical G&T. Occasionally, when they can source it, that T will even stand for real tonic with actual quinine in it, a rarity in China. Just around the corner from Lola, Loco will undoubtedly serve as a public pregame space for the club scene. And who knows? Maybe all those potatoes will go a long way to soaking up the booze that fuels the late night dance parties.


What: Spanish gastropub from Lola Where: Unit 1F-02 Muqi Court, 205 Wulumuqi Nan Lu, near Zhaojiabang Lu. Tel: 150 0063 6841 Why: You’re crazy for gin


he owners of Lola have yet to slap up a sign announcing the arrival of Loco, their new tapas restaurant cum gin bar, but that hasn’t stopped the club’s regulars, who like to see and be seen, from propping up the bar in front of the street window at Muqi Court. We headed down to sample the back dining room’s Spanish fare twice - once on a slammed weekend night and another midweek dinner where we had the restaurant to ourselves. If our experience is anything to go by, expect over-the-top

Food For Thought Jamie Barys

Each month, our dining columnist gives you all the news that’s fit to dish. Find out the newest hotspots and the latest closings, as well as the tastiest events in town for September.


f you - like most of us - spent the mercury-shattering month of August in front of your aircon, slurping on straight ice and only letting the cool air escape when the sweaty Sherpa’s deliveryman arrived, you might have missed out on all the summer restaurant openings. Never fear - we’ve got the round-up here! South Jing’an exploded with new restaurants in August. Cheap lunch deals are all the rage at Pascasa (5F, 818 Nanjing Xi Lu, near Shimen Yi Lu. Tel: 6052 1980), a new Italian eatery that makes its own pasta and pizza dough in-house daily. Head west, and you’ll come across The Cove (118 Xikang Lu, near Nanyang Lu. Tel: Oyster House

6215 5534), a molecular kitchen wielding its sous vide machine proudly and Bonne (74 Nanyang Lu, near Xikang Lu. Tel: 6224 1255), a café serving pastas and pizzas for the lunch crowd. The Sushi’O guys are expanding their seafood empire, with a new yakitori joint (tentatively titled O’Yakitori) in early September just next door from their recentlyopened second location (155 Yanping Lu, near Wuding Lu). Yummy salad and sandwich joint Wattz (989 Wuding Lu, near Jiaozhou Lu) has soft-opened across the street from Munchie’s. The menu with its three bean salad may look familiar - that’s because it’s owned by the same healthy owners of Origin. Oyster House (441 Yuyuan Lu, near Wulumuqi Lu. Tel: 6233 9651) is already packed to the gills after opening midAugust. They’re serving up half a dozen or so oyster varieties on the half shell, as well as an extensive menu of Spanish-influenced tapas and mains, like garlic shrimp and whole baby snapper. There are all sorts of goings-on at the new

Jing’an Kerry Center (1515 Nanjing Xi Lu, near Tongren Lu). In addition to ShangriLa’s new restaurants, the mall’s food court is proving to be a sweet second home for some of Shanghai’s favorite restaurateurs. Spicy Sichuan joint Maurya opened their second shop, Element Fresh has another branch there and Pier 39 is bringing their California cooking to the mall soon. And that mall on Huaihai that’s taken six years to build? IAPM (999 Huaihai Zhong Lu, near Shanxi Lu) was worth the wait because its dining options are going to make the schlep to Pudong for dinner moot. Legendary tonkatsu sandwiches from Ginza Bairin, roasted goose from Lei Garden and umamilaced bowls of ramen from Ippudo (also opening spots in the new Kerry Center and Wujiang Lu) are all set to open in the next few weeks, alongside Morton’s Grill & Oyster Bar, which will hopefully pair that famous Mortini happy hour with their bivalves. Hong Kong grocer city’super is also opening shop in the basement for all your to-go gourmet needs. IAPM also has some fresh new faces in the crowd to get excited about, including Greyhound Café’s fusion Thai dishes, Jumbo’s Singaporean chili crab and Dressed’s fresh salads. Up the block, restaurateur Kelley Lee has a new concept that’s under construction at Huaihai & Donghu Lu, but the details are hush-hush. It’s not another Boxing Cat Brewery but she let us know that it will be beer-driven. And if that wasn’t enough to make gluttons of us all, we’ve saved the best for last. Franck Pecol is continuing his domination of Ferguson Lane with a rooftop taqueria. Franckito will be serving al fresco tacos with homemade corn tortillas. His namesake bistro also underwent a facelift last month, so expect some refreshed decor alongside a redesigned



menu from the impressive new head chef Yann Meinsel. But all these exciting new entrants to the dining scene means we have to say good-bye to the fallen. Unfortunately, Michelin-starred tempura joint Ippoh moved its operations to Hong Kong at the end of August. And South Bund took a beating this month, losing Jack London, Horizen and Zeal in one fell swoop. We also want to send a very fond farewell to Chef Vinh Nguyen from The Grumpy Pig (65-4 Maoming Bei Lu, near Yan’an Lu. Tel: 6217 3355). His departure means that Chef Austin Hu of Madison is the only remaining member of the original Banh Mi Brothaz. Let’s hope he keeps the annual pop-up tradition alive for all of us still here and craving good Vietnamese sandwiches. Nguyen was replaced by Chef Willet Feng, who is carrying on the porcine mantle with a new menu just perfect for pigging out.

Alternative Eats: Bad Boy Bangers Carl Robinson

We delve deep into Shanghai’s food underbelly to give you an alternative view of the city’s dining scene.


ver the last year, Deji Odunlami, a maths teacher from East London, has been bringing his ‘Bad Boy Bangers’ sausages to an ever-increasing group of Shanghai residents. Odunlami first came to Shanghai around three years ago and, like many British expats, it didn’t take him long to become frustrated at the lack of good, old-fashioned English fry-ups. His inability to find this traditional English dish, and its crowning glory, the sausage, gave Odunlami an idea – to produce and sell quality sausages to the masses. This idea quickly became a reality when he began to stage successful sausage selling events, under the catchy name ‘Bad Boy Bangers’. You may be asking: Why this name? Well, so did we! Talk went down to meet Odunlami at one of his events, at which he informed us, the bad boy part comes from being back in London, the kids say ‘bad boy’ meaning something is good and the name bangers, well, that just means sausages.

Odunlami’s sausages were certainly more than just good when we tasted them at one of his popup events on the quieter side of Yongkang Lu at Magpie Cocktail Bar (189 Yongkang Lu, near Taiyuan Lu). There, he allowed us to sink our teeth into his traditional sausage and his most popular sausage, Sundried Tomato And Cheese. We could have easily eaten his four other mouth-watering flavours, Cumberland, Lincolnshire, Apple And Cider and Sichuan Pepper (one for the locals) as well. Those before us have dubbed him the ‘Sausage King’ and we would have to agree. There is also a vegan option available, but he assures us that the meat sausages have already turned a vegetarian into a carnivore once before!

Second Helpings: New Heights

Nyima Pratten

Odunlami understands that in Shanghai, you have to be extremely careful when purchasing meat. His solution to this problem ultimately became the reason as to why his sausages are so tasty. He purchases his ingredients from Star Farms, which means that the meat is traceable; it is also the trusted label of major supermarkets all over Shanghai. Unfortunately, Odunlami’s pop-up events only happen once or twice a month. However, when he does, it is definitely one to attend. If you can’t make it to one of his events, or simply can’t wait to try some of his sensational sausages, he’ll be more than

happy to deliver in the Puxi area. Bad Boy Bangers also offers a catering service for large parties or events. So far, the Bad Boy Bangers brand has been spread around Shanghai through word of mouth and, although this has brought some success, Odunlamis is not willing to rest on his laurels. In mid-September his sausages will be stocked in a new expat food shop in the Xuhai district, (2/F, store 86-89, 1239 Fuxing Zhong Lu). Furthermore, Odunlami also smokes his own bacon and, although we were not around to try any, if the flavor is anything like his ‘banging’ sausages, then we are in for a treat! RMB 25 per hotdog, RMB 52 to RMB 56 for a pack of 6 plain sausages. Web: www.

Five Minutes With… Debra, Master of Wine Casey Hall

Debra Meiburg is best known in Shanghai as the blonde American beaming out at us from taxi television screens, giving us hints and tips about wine tasting, in order to save the un (or under) educated from committing serious wine-related faux pas. Recently in Shanghai for a wine tasting sponsored by Lucaris glassware, Meiburg, who has lived in Hong Kong for the past 25 years, took some time out from her busy schedule to tell Talk about being one of only three “Masters of Wine” in Asia.

erched at the top of the 3 On The Bund empire sits New Heights. This light and airy restaurant is decked out with blond-wood floors, cool chrome seating and floor to ceiling windows. New Heights also boasts an outdoor terrace, perfect for enjoying the famed Luijiazui view. Although we have been to New Heights many times, we were intrigued to try the new menu, which we had been hearing so much about. To start our lunchtime feast, we tucked into the Salmon Carpaccio, Seaweed And Sesame

Rice Chips (RMB 90). The salmon was deliciously fresh and beautifully seasoned, the perfect light beginning to our lunchtime treat. Next up we chose the Pan Fried Scallop Served With Homardine Sauce And Quinoa (RMB 178). The sweat and tender scallop was naturally the crowning glory of this dish and deliciously meaty. To end our glutinous lunch, we picked two of the most exquisitely sounding dessert dishes, White Wine Peach With Lemon Chiffon & Peach Sorbet (RMB 75) and Chocolate Moelleux With Apricot Confit (RMB 75). The sorbet was tangy and perfectly offset by the sweet fruit and the chocolaty offering delighted us with a soft and oozing center of heavenly goodness. The relaxed atmosphere and delightful dishes will keep us coming back for third, fourth and fifth helpings, that’s for sure.

What’s the most common question you get asked by Chinese wine consumers? I think people are very fearful about wine etiquette and I don’t know what I’m most commonly asked, but I’ll tell you what’s most commonly said to me: “I like wine, but I don’t know anything about it.” Although I fully support and promote wine education – it’s what I adore – I also fear that people feel they must be educated to taste wine and that’s not the case, it’s just that, the more you know the more interesting it is and more pleasurable it is. But surely you cringe when people mix red wine and coke? I actually try to talk down this preconception. I think that it’s something people used to like to say about China, but I also think when it was common practice to mix red wine and coke, people were drinking very simple wines and the coke may even have improved them! I think the market’s become so sophisticated now, and so quickly, I think the last thing that needs to be eradicated is the ganbei. So is the key to incorporate wine into the existing Chinese food culture? Most of us are very interested in getting people comfortable with wine at the dinner table, because it is a food drink. Of course sometimes we drink it in

bars, but in the long run, it should be drunk with food, and if we continue to promote it with western food, that makes it quite limited, as the market is only going to eat western food so many times a month. Matching wine to Chinese food is notoriously challenging, is this a factor in the future of wine as an established part of dining here? I think the food matching is not a big deal. I would say putting wine on a Chinese dinner table is important, matching dish to dish is just not. Pick one dish or one ingredient in a dish to match the wine with and make it work. Web:


爱的酸甜苦辣 (巧克力)


Chef Talk: Kanjiro Mochizuki For Ichido And Le Diamant

Nyima Pratten


hef Kanjiro Mochizuki is a world famous, Japanese Executive Pastry Chef and also teaches pastry techniques at noted culinary schools in Japan. Chef Mochizuki started his career in Japan after finishing high school and has spent stints in the US. At the World Pastry Team Championships in 2002, Chef Mochizuki won the award for Best Sugar Showpiece before serving as the Japanese team manager at the same competition in 2010; tough credentials for any Asian pastry chef to beat. Chef Mochizuki told Talk that after competing in so many international competitions, he began to socialize with many other Asian chefs and restaurateurs. That is how his friendship with Mr. Tsai started. Taiwanese Mr. Tsai came to Shanghai in 1992 and has been working in the industry for 30 years. Due to the decades long friendship Chef Mochizuki shares with Ichido and Le Diamant’s founder Mr. Tsai, Chef Mochizuki was happy to come to Shanghai to create

a new summer pastry menu for the Chinese stores. Although in Japan Chef Mochizuki specializes in French style cuisine, his preference is for American style pastry. “The characteristics of the French pastry are very complicated – more so than people are used to. But I think now, everywhere in Japan uses French style pastry. I believe that it is now the time to eat simple and tasty pastry, so I decided to create Lemon Meringue Pie, Blueberry Pie or something very simple but tasty.” Chef Mochizuki insists that so long as quality ingredients are used, the taste of American pastry is second to none as it is simple and easy to understand compared to a more complicated French version. When quizzed by Talk about the palate of Chinese consumers and whether they would warm to these unaccustomed sweet treats that they are unaccustomed to, Chef Mochizuki explained, “It took about ten years for tastes to change towards pastry in Japan but I think it will take only three years in China due to the rapid pace of development.”

Look out for Chef Mochizuki’s new summer desserts in Ichido and Le Diamant stores now and check out his very precise Lemon Meringue Pie recipe on the right.

Puff pastry base Ingredients 90g cake flour 175g butter 3g salt

100g bread flour 82g cold water

Method Sift the cake flour and bread flour together into a bowl and cut the refrigerated butter into 5mm cubes. Using your fingers, rub the butter and flour together then add the cold water and salt. Mix the ingredients into a dough and cover in plastic wrap before refrigerating for 30 minutes. After the dough has cooled, flatten the dough into 3 layers and then rest for 30 minutes. After waiting, roll out the puff pastry dough into a circle with a diameter of 24cm and a thickness of 2mm and place onto a tart pan. Make small holes across the dough using a fork and cover with parchment paper using weights to hold it in place. Bake the puff pastry at 180°C for 30 minutes. Lemon filling (for 2 tarts) Ingredients 1 liter water 6 egg yolks

240g sugar 150 milliliters

85g cornstarch 1 sliced sponge cake

Method Boil the water and add in the sugar, cornstarch and yolks. Cook for 5 minutes before adding in the lemon juice. Place sliced sponge cake on the bottom of the baked puff pastry base then pour over the lemon mixture. Place the rest of the sliced sponge cake on top. Lemon flavored meringue Ingredients 160g egg whites 176g sugar ¼ lemon peel (grated) Method Beat the egg whites with a small amount of sugar. When the meringue has foamed well, gradually add the rest of the sugar. Fold in the grated lemon peel and spread the mixture onto the lemon cream filling.

Tiki Bar At Bund Beach

Carl Robinson

TOPS @ Banyan Tree Shanghai On The Bund Nyima Pratten

What: Banyan Tree Shanghai On The Bund’s classy new bar

What: Exotic-themed beach bar with refreshing cocktails and stunning views of the Bund Why: To enjoy a beach-like environment in the heart of the city Where: Bund Beach. Warf 1,846, 421 Waima Lu, near Maojiayuan Lu How much: Entrance fee is RMB 50 from 12pm to 6pm, after 6pm entrance fee includes two selected drinks. RMB 50 for 2 selected drinks during happy hour: 6pm to 10pm (Monday to Friday) Situated slap bang in the middle of Bund Beach, the Tiki Bar gives its guests the feeling of being far away from the vibrant city… nearly. Surrounded by sand and with an authentic thatched beach bar, you wouldn’t be alone in forgetting that you were in one of the largest cities in the world. The only thing that gives the location away is also one of the bars most inviting features, the stunning views across the river of the financial district.

To cool off on a hot day, bar manager Nacho Del Toro (of Dean’s Bottle Shop fame) recommended their refreshing Tequila Sunrise, a mixture of tequila, orange juice and grenadine syrup (RMB 40). Their superbly made Mojitos (RMB 40) are also highly recommended to help you unwind after a long day. You don’t have to enjoy these drinks at the bar, there are plenty of tables where you can sit and unwind under parasols whilst taking in the view. An added benefit of this venue is the inviting swimming pool a mere stone’s throw away from the bar and, if you want to catch the Shanghai rays, the sand either side of the bar offers an abundance of large sunbeds. This area also offers the potential for beach football and beach volleyball, if you are able to organize yourself into a team after a few cocktails. The bar is open every day until October, when it will then close until March of next year, so enjoy this opportunity to lay back and enjoy the view while it lasts. We suggest that you come after 6pm because although you will pay the standard RMB 50 Bund Beach charge at the entrance, it will be refundable for drink tickets at Tiki Bar.

Why: To appreciate one of the most stunning views of the historic Bund, Huangpu River and Luijiazui financial district in town Where: 19 Gongping Lu, near Haiping Lu. Tel: 2509 1188 How Much: Entrance fee RMB 150 on Tuesdays and Sundays including 2 drinks, RMB 150 on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays including 1 drink and RMB 150 on Wednesdays Ladies’ Nights, when ladies can enjoy free flow beverages from 7pm to 9pm. This cool terrace, atop Banyan Tree On The Bund, is a destination bar. Set apart from other popular city nightspots, guests will have to plan an excursion to this northerly section of the Bund, rather than stumbling upon it. However, once you arrive, you are in for a treat. Although some may think that the RMB 150 cover charge on the door is pretty steep, it does include drink(s), the quantity of which depending on what day you go and what sex you are (that night at least). On Talk’s visit to TOPS, the Bar Manager told us that this was to discourage all those pesky backpackers

from trekking up to the venue only to slowly sip a water and hog the best stools, chairs, sofas and loungers. It is clear that this bar is marketing itself at more exclusive clientele; it certainly has the credentials to. Although our trip to TOPS was rescheduled numerous times due to adverse weather conditions, when we did finally make it to the top, we were blown away by the view (not literally, it was a pleasant and balmy Shanghai evening). TOPS promises a 180 degree panorama of the Bund, across the Huangpu River and over to the skyscrapers of Luijiazui but we think it is worth mentioning that this figure is actually a lot higher, if you are interested in seeing the more industrialized area further north up the Huangpu River. The bar is very chic and modern, with a white color theme throughout and cool blue, UV lighting as the sun sets, adding to the contemporary style. There are a variety of areas to relax on the large terrace, including private sections and tables that can be booked out for groups of friends. There is also a DJ spinning the latest tunes every night. Head to TOPS, order a cocktail and some tapas, specially created by the Banyan Tree chefs, and enjoy this new, unique and unobstructed view of our beloved city.

Tel: 5237 8662 How Much: RMB 50 Guinness is promising to uphold its tradition of joining with the music industry to support rising artists and celebrate popular musicians. The company has partnered with independent Chinese music promoters, Split Works, to offer something different to local music fans in an industry heavily influenced by Korean and Japanese mainstream pop. The MORE Music series aims to create music collaborations in a ‘non-stream’ way and

showcase that contemporary music can include a variety of styles. As we know, contemporary folk music is not limited to a particular sound, and therefore Guinness is featuring many unique and experimental sounds with deeper lyrical content and advanced musicianship. This is the first time that Guinness will introduce its MORE Music program to China and the series will run through

until February with a range of gigs featuring independent musicians. More Music will kick off in Shanghai on 6 September at Yuyintang with folk singer Liu Dongming. Liu, originally from Tengzhou in Shanxi province, started his musical career singing outside subway stations for passers-by before moving onto Beijing’s small bars and livehouses. His natural

talent and heartfelt lyrics soon led him to release two demos which eventually resulted in him winning Best New Male Artist in 2010 at the China Music Media Awards. Liu will start the series with his unique, poetic and empathetic style. Keep your eyes peeled for more information about Guinness MORE Music’s weekend music festival from 1 to 3 November 2013.

in the know IN REVIEW Pacific Rim


White House Down

Following the 2011 release of the hugely successful Drive, director Nicolas Winding Refn has once more teamed up with Ryan Gosling to produce another dark, stylized and hyper violent creation. Set in the seedy, neon underworld of Bangkok, Only God Forgives tells a story of revenge, spiraling out of control. After horrifically raping and murdering an underage prostitute, Billy (Tom Burke) is caught by Thai police. Lieutenant Chang (Vithaya Pansringarm) allows the father of the prostitute to beat Billy to death before cutting the father’s arms off for making his daughter work in the brothel. After the news of her first born son’s death, Crystal (Scott Thomas) arrives in Bangkok to demand that her second son Julian (Gosling) seeks revenge upon the men who killed his brother, setting in motion a wave of brutal violence that spreads across the city. No one does violence as well as Nicolas Winding Refn and the levels of violence in this film are astounding. The whole movie is shot beautifully but is so heavily stylized that it is bordering on becoming a parody of itself. It will divide audiences with fans of the director’s work salivating at the exquisitely constructed shots and those less familiar cringing at the slow and pretentious characters. Enjoyment of the film will be based solely on how far you are willing to follow the director down his rabbit hole. Dawa Tshering

The premise of Pacific Rim is drawn from the Kaiju genre of Japanese Manga, which gave the world the likes of Godzilla. That being said, the monsters in Pacific Rim dwarf nearly everything seen on screen before them. Expect carnage on a global scale and some of the finest action and combat scenes of the summer. Helming the project is director, Guillermo del Toro, who has given us such masterpieces as Pan’s Labyrinth. He’s known for creating films with infinitely detailed worlds that combine a unique mix of spectacle and beauty and Pacific Rim is no different. The robots are sensational. The near apocalyptic world is realized in a dark and expansive fashion. The film is a visual feast. However, being that it was not natively shot in 3-D but converted in post, the added dimension leaves a lot to be desired. Also lacking from the film is a storyline of decent narrative depth. The plot seemed somewhat an excuse for the action, and, at points, the suspension of disbelief viewers require to stay engrossed, is at an inexcusable level. Certain characters seem almost like caricatures in nature, however, one could argue that a lot of the film’s inspiration relies heavily on cartoons so in some ways, this feature is only a reflection of the film’s origins. If the idea of giant robot/monster fights has you rubbing sand in your eyes, then this film is not for you, but anyone who grew up watching these sorts of cartoons, or wishes to experience action on a whole new scale, will be thrilled; just don’t expect much depth from Pacific Rim. Andy Harrop

Framed by big skies and vast open waterways, Mud transports you to the damp, humid world of the Arkansas Delta for a gripping and heartfelt American coming of age tale. Mud finds our protagonist, Ellis (Tye Sheridan), at a painfully transitional period in his life. At age fourteen, he is experiencing his first love, the failure of his parents’ marriage and the resultant loss of the houseboat he calls home and the way of life that goes with it. When Ellis and best friend Neckbone (Jacob Lofland) discover a boat stranded in a tree by a passing storm on a small island in the delta, they aim to create a secret tree house and world of their own, but soon discover they are not alone. Already living in the boat is the eponymous and mysterious Mud, played by McConaughey, who continues the rehabilitation of a career once plagued by rom-com typecasting. What follows is an uneasy deal where, in exchange for the boat, the boys will help Mud locate and contact his lover, Juniper (Witherspoon), for whom he is waiting. The steamy atmosphere of the waterways drips off the screen in an intoxicating fashion with the charming, soft southern light captured beautifully. The stunning cinematography is coupled by stellar performances from the cast with standouts from its young leads. Running in the same vein as classics such as Stand By Me or Huckleberry Finn, it’s a beautifully told tale of boyhood adventure, though female audiences may find it to be deeply one sided. Ewan Colledge

‘Tis the summer of box office busts. Most of the major production companies have had at least one big failure and it seems that White House Down may be next on the list. The story sees U.S. Capitol Cop and wannabe Secret Service Agent, John Cale (Channing Tatum), don a white vest in a sort of Die Hard like fashion, and run around the corridors and secret passageways of the White House protecting President James Sawyer (Jamie Foxx) from a shady terrorist organization. The emotional arcs of the story focus on the relationship between perceived failure, Cale, and his despondent daughter whose only interest in life is U.S. politics, and President Sawyer’s lauded yet controversial efforts to remove U.S. troops from the Middle East. What follows is several hours chock-full of patriotic hyperbole and chaotic action punctuated by formulaic comedic interludes. However, some of the quiet moments fall short with one particular scene involving a black President and his Air Jordan shoes bordering on bad taste. The film culminates into a cringe worthy final act, which would grate on all but the staunchest red-blooded American Patriot. The predictable plot and relatively average action amount to a forgettable movie. To make any impression on a summer saturated by some of the most explosive action films of recent years, you really have to be packing heat and White House Down falls short of the mark. With no great story to counter this deficiency, it fails to stand out in a crowded bracket. Dawa Tshering

Cat Country

On The Noodle Road

Big TV

White Lies

David Lynch

Considered by many to be China’s first literary work of science fiction, the story starts with a Chinese astronaut crashed and stranded on Mars. He discovers a planet inhabited by Cat People with their own society that, under closer inspection, is found to be fraught with decline and despair, mirroring the author’s opinions and experiences of an early 20th century China. A savage critique of a culture in turmoil, Cat Country used dark humor and cutting satire with deadly effect. Lao She considered Cat Country a failure. “What I thought was what most ordinary people were thinking… I simply gave a straight-forward presentation of what was common knowledge at the time and then dignified the whole thing by calling it ‘satire’.” However in doing this, he has managed to allegorically create a true record of social conditions in the 1930s whose value is now more pronounced than ever in a post cultural revolution China. Whilst often considered to be one of Lao She’s weaker novels, Cat Country is still in its own rights a modern classic. Deeply comedic, and like last month, Mr Ma and Son, painfully relevant. The world envisaged jumps out of the pages in a fascinating and surreal manor; essential reading for anyone interested in Chinese history. Dawa Tshering

In the early stages of her marriage, Jen Lin-Liu embarks on a journey to discover where the first noodle was invented and ends up discovering herself. On The Noodle Road guides readers through LinLiu’s journey on the Silk Road; a historical network of interlinking routes. From China to Rome, Lin-Liu makes stops in Central Asia, Iran and Turkey to eat traditional meals and learn more about the history of the noodle. Lin-Liu creates a beautiful picture of the foods she eats, incorporating a personal touch with the people she encounters. With every stop, Lin-Liu encounters vastly different cultures and fully engrosses herself in them. On The Noodle Road helps to understand the connection between cultures and the way everyone prepares dishes. Along the Silk Road, Lin-Liu learns that food isn’t just sustenance; the people she encounters treat their food with respect. Food is the focal point of some cultures and their passion for preparation is shown in the way Lin-Liu describes every taste. Lin-Liu’s dedication to her dream never falters; down to the last moment of her journey she is still discovering what it means to be a chef, business owner, journalist and a wife. Having everything is not easy; it’s all about balance and remembering which personal values are the most important. Hailey Howlett

Post-Punk Indie Rock act, White Lies, are back with their follow-up third album Big TV, continuing their successful run of synthy 80’s style, deep voiced, sulking ballads. Fans of bands such as Joy Division and Dépêche Mode will find a lot to like here. This album displays the band’s solid development from their initial two releases. Where the previous albums tended towards potentially whiny lyrics, Big TV follows a loose concept of an Eastern European woman moving to a western city and focuses on the strained relationships that this causes. While not all-consuming, this general trajectory helps prevent the songs from falling into a monotonous repetition of theme, and on the whole, the album tends toward being a much more uplifting affair. The melodic riffs and moody anthems that are the hallmark of the band are well suited to playing arenas, yet they seem to dwell more on experimental work that falls loosely on slightly bored ears. Whilst not as repetitive as some of their earlier work, Big TV can still suffer occasionally from being too generic. When they do hit their stride however, White Lies prove that they are worth following. They are reaching for something, but they’re not quite there; almost tangible, there are flashes of greatness. Hopefully, when they come to make their next album they stick to the anthems, avoid being too morose and repetitive and leave the experimentation to those who are better suited to it. Andy Harrop

2013 sees the release of filmmaker, artist, musician, sometimes actor and all-around creative powerhouse David Lynch’s second album The Big Dream. Lynch’s musical output has, until recent years, mainly focused around his film work. Originally training as a painter, he moved into the film medium in the 70’s, creating cult classics such as Eraserhead, before moving more to the mainstream with huge critical successes such as Blue Velvet and Mullholand Drive. Throughout this time, musically, he worked on his films and a series of collaborations with successful acts. It wasn’t until 2011, after a multitude of other projects, that he released his first album, Crazy Clown Time. Lynch’s style is one of bluesy rock with an electronic overcoat. However, one of the music’s great strengths is also its weakness. Much of the pleasure for the listener is derived from the fact that you are listening to David Lynch. Non-fans of the icon may struggle to find as much to enjoy, with the obvious highlight of the album being the song he didn’t sing, I’m Waiting Here, featuring the vocal talents of the always-brilliant Likkie Li. It must be said though that The Big Dream doesn’t feel like an extension of some conceptual art project and functions as an album in its own rights. Lynch’s music possesses a deeply filmic quality; the sound is heavily atmospheric and he can set a scene within the first few notes of a song. His roots are plain to see. Dark and foreboding, the album poses a heavy sound worthy of merit. Ewan Colledge

ARIES (March 21 – April 19): You are stronger than you have been in a long time. Yes, change continues to happen around you and that’s a good thing. Chances are you’re already in a new place. Instead of wasting time longing for what you let go of, focus your attention on the next step. Life is all about embracing change.

SCORPIO (Oct 24 – Nov 21): Don’t be surprised if your goals have opposition. A little resistance never stopped you and it won’t now. You don’t like to listen to others and their ideas, but there is a lot to learn either through their wins or losses that could save you time. Put your pride away and pay attention.

TAURUS (April 20 – May 20): You’re nervous and excited, and you love the intensity of the moment. There is nothing wrong with having some fun, but you tend to take everything to an extreme.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov 22 – Dec 21): You’ve shifted your position and what you need now is support, either financial or spiritual. It’s too easy for you to do everything on your own.

CAPRICORN (Dec 22 – Jan 19): You may feel pulled apart – everyone wants something from you and there is no place to hide.

CANCER (June 22 – July 22): With Jupiter in Cancer you are ready to push the boundaries of your life. The strength you feel will make you appear stubborn to others, but the truth is you just want to do things your way and you usually only listen to yourself. That’s not a bad thing, but getting advice is also acceptable.

AQUARIUS (Jan 20 – Feb 18): With Saturn in your tenth house of career, it’s time to reap the rewards of your past efforts. Once you receive this satisfaction, you’ll surprise yourself by shifting your goals. It’s time to cast your vision in a new direction. You love change so this should excite you, not fill you with fear.

LEO (July 23 – August 22): With Jupiter in your 12th house of the unconscious, you have a guardian angel working for you overtime. The good you have done in the past is waiting to come back to you. So know you are protected by the universe. This is the time to take a risk for your dreams. Don’t hold back; make them happen.
