‘Play’ with Food and make ART

Hong Yi,

who goes by the nickname ‘Red’, is a Malaysian artist-architect. She was given the nickname because her name, Hong, sounds like the word ‘red’ in Mandarin. Red’s grandparents and father left Shanghai in the ‘60s during the start of the Cultural Revolution and moved to Sabah, Malaysia where she was born and raised. Growing up, she heard stories about how life was like for them and her relatives in China, but never thought much about it. After graduating from university in Australia, she took up an offer

to work for Australian architecture firm HASSELL in their Shanghai office, and was completely taken with the city, with its special structures and tensions, its unique history and culture. This inspired her to start on creating art using local everyday materials she found in China as her medium. It was an outlet for her to express how much she felt for a place her grandparents once fled from. Known as the artist who ‘loves to paint, but not with a paintbrush’, her works have been featured by media around the world including Huffington Post, Wall Street Journal, ABC, CNN, NBC and the Daily Mail. She has worked with clients such as Hewlett

Packard, Unilever, Nespresso, and Astro, was invited as a presenter at the 6th and 7th EG Conference in Monterey, California, and lectured in design universities Domus Academy and NABA in Milan, and traveled to USA, Italy, Germany, China, Malaysia, Australia and Hong Kong to present her work. She currently lives and works between Shanghai and Malaysia. Her project of making food as an art has been her favourite lately, most of her work was uploaded in her instagram, instagram.com/redhongyi. Her obsesive of organizing things has give her idea to put it as her artwork. April 2013 /

Finding inspirations for a meal here in Ipoh holds nary a challenge; unless you’re talking about the odd hours. we can effortlessly ramble off a long list of recommendations for breakfast, lunch and dinner (could be either the same or different choices), as well as viable alternatives for brunch and supper. Provided that you’re all game for hawker fares, of course. But low and b e h o l d, w e routinely found ourself dumbBurps & Giggls struck when specialty: forced to Harvey, fish recommpatties, corriandermint salad, thai end a goinfuse spread od spot for tea time hi-tea. This could very well be related to the fact that Ipoh’s forte has always been the incredible plethora of street food, while quality high-tea sessions in hotels or all-day cafes/bistros are harder to come by. So you can imagine the spark of interest in us when the all-day cafe Burps & Giggles came on

board; with non-stop business hours from 8am – 8pm. What a quirky name, you wonder? More than just the name, be prepared for the visual feast that follows. Burps & Giggles (let’s just call them B&G for short) pride on their pinchos and burgers. The chalk-scribbled blackboard hanging from the window near the counter lists a selec tion of gourmet burgers served at B&G. Almost every corner of the cozy space within B&G has been decorated with quirky paintings, charming ornaments, natural foliage of greens and flowers, or rustic furnitures making their presence felt after what-could-possibly be half a century in the lurch. We have found our best hi-tea place.BURP! April 2013 /

He started to ‘mess around’ with digital graphic since high school, and bringing his passion to another level right after attending a higher education for diploma in multimedia in Kolej Polytech Mara,Ipoh. He is practically a very simple person that is always passionate in making new designs and work. He also enjoy digital photography and the analogue photography and doing some experiment with emotion trough a picture by adding a bit of editing.

Designingin

a hand of a

DIGITAL KID This young and talented man head up to another step by making few design for a new independent clothing line called ‘the SYMMTRY’. Plus his passion in taking beauty shots in digital photography also has been his freelance work for a meantime since there is a demand. His passion toward art can be a remarkably an example or reference for a new artist that want to create own design and so called random art.

What makes this place is so rare and different with other place or bazaar is it sell almost everything vintage. Starting from a houseware, music, posters, accesories, shoes and lots and lots of vintage stuff. Loken was really well known by the vintage stuff collecter and people that just love to feast their eyes with lots of long lost memories stuff by our grand parents era. At the end 15 /
