hk singer-song-writer Jing Wong黃靖@人山人海, pinkwork shortnews

just shot a short video of singer-song-writer Jing Wong whose debut English album “Last breath of youthful melancholy” is finally OUT this month. Jing is an artist of People Mountain People Sea, an alternative indie label founded by renowned HK musician Anthony Wong Yiu-ming. Jing earned this record deal three years ago by self-introducing himself and playing his self-written song “You are in everything I do” in front of Ming Gor (Anthony Wong). Though Jing had to wait for nearly 4 hrs in a photo studio till this music star finished his shooting job, Jing’s determination paid off. He and Ming Gor become friends since then.

Jing graduated with 1st Honours in Theatre Design from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design. In 2006 he joined his elder sister Kay to found the fashion brand Daydream Nation. “I’ve never considered myself as a fashion designer, for me, fashion design is just a media to express my concept … and few months ago I decided to focus more on my another passion, that ‘s music.” said Jing during the interview. Want to sEE/hEAR Jing talking more about his debut album and upcoming projects, click/touch the sound buttons below.

又拍攝了一個「人類」,香港創作歌手黃靖,他的首張專輯《Last breath of youthful melancholy》剛剛面世。這位屬黃耀明創立的獨立廠牌「人山人海」旗下一員的創作歌手,原來三年前是靠向明哥﹝黃耀明﹞自薦及即埸自彈自唱自己作品《You are in everything I do》而獲得賞識。雖然當年他要在影樓等了足足四小時,待明哥完成拍攝的工作。不過黃靖的堅持最終都獲得回報。如今他和明哥更成了好朋友。

黃靖是英國Central Saint Martins學院舞台設計系一級榮譽畢業,2006年他和家姐黃琪創立時裝品牌Daydream Nation。「我從不當自己是時裝設計師,對於我來說,時裝不過是一種表達意念的媒介 … 兩三個月前,我已決定了未來會專注我的另一個喜好,就是音樂。」黃靖在訪問中說。想聽/看看黃靖親自講講自己的首唱片及未來計劃,可點/按下面的聲音按鈕。:idea:

 Jing Wong UFO witness report, a PINKWORK Art concept 

singer Shiga Lin ‘s 2nd album 連詩雅:「粉紅貓, 記得我嘛?」/ PINKWORK Video

MEOW… just photographed a talented female human, actress/singer Shiga Lin whose 2nd Album “Movin’ On” is OUT this month. It’s already been two years since her debut album. During the past two years, Shiga has made her name starring in the movie “Lan Kwai Fong” in which she plays a sexually provocative flight attendant. This role also earned her “The Best Actress” nomination at Hong Kong Film awards.

Though she has quite a successful start in film career, Shiga decided to focus back on singing this year. “For film acting, there’re many things I can’t control, such as editing, scoring…etc. Singing is different, it’s a 100% personal work. Also the audience applause during my live performances give me lots of pleasure and satisfaction, so I won’t quit singing.” said Shiga. Actually, Shiga has already been a youtube star. She uploaded some of her songs to youtube and several of them got more than million hits in a short period of time.

Contrary to the sexy image of her film roles, the “Shiga” in her songs and music videos is a sweet and vulnerable girl. Shiga told me her “real self” is more like the later …. Want to sEE/hEAR (sound & video of) Shiga talking more about songs in her new album, click/touch the buttons below …

喵 … 剛拍攝了人類Shiga連詩雅,事隔兩年,她的第二張專輯《Movin’ On》終於推出。這兩年期間,連詩雅演出電影的成績反而不俗,《喜愛夜蒲》中的角色令她獲得電影金像獎的提名。不過Shiga表明不會放棄唱歌,,因為當演員很多東西是自己不能控制的,如剪接、配樂等等。當歌手現場演出時,觀眾的掌聲及讚美,都令她很開心及有滿足感。

事實上,Shiga早已成了Youtube紅人。她將一些歌曲的MV放上Youtube,其中幾首短時間內已突破百萬點擊率。想聽/看看Shiga親自講解新碟內的歌曲,可按/點下面的連結。

A pinkwork video of singer-song-writer Rannes Man 文恩澄 :「粉紅貓,你喺邊呀?」

MEOW … one day I flipped through a newspaper and came across a small article saying this singer-song-writer shot her new song MV by herself … funny.

Rannes Man started her music career from a song she wrote 10 years ago which was actually just a piece of her University homework. She posted this song online and immediately drew the attention of several record labels. Rannes was then invited to come back to HK to develop her music career, started off as a song writer, backing vocalist or accompanist for pop singers’ concerts and TV/radio guest host. In 2008 she finally earned a record deal and released her well-received debut album. Unfortunately, her record label decided to close its music department the same year, so Rannes had to go “backstage” again …

“I feel a bit disappointed at the time, but since most of the jobs I was doing, such as song writing, being an accompanist, etc., all were still related to music. I enjoy my past few years very much.” said Rannes. At the same time, she has never given up and keep writing new songs for herself and other singers, posting new songs and videos online. This year she signed to a new label and will release her new album soon … WANT to sEE/hEAR this talented singer-song-writer talking more about her “not so straight” career path, cLICK/tOUCH the video and sound buttons below.

一天看見報紙一篇小小的報導,說創作歌手文恩澄自己拍攝及製作她的新歌《水孩子》MV。雖然創作人都愛「一手包辦」自己的作品,但連MV也由自己操刀,真的有趣。八卦的粉紅貓自然要找一找她 … 喵。

文恩澄入行是因為十年前她創作的一首歌開始,其實這只是她大學時期的一件功課。後來她把這首歌放上網,引來一些唱片公司的興趣。她獲邀回香港發展,起初只是做幕後為主,例如作曲、幫歌手演唱會彈琴、和音等,亦會接一些主持、兼職模特兒等工作。2008年她終於正式推出首張個人唱片,碟內有一首她創作,和陳曉東合唱的歌曲《愛情第二》。可惜同年公司決定關閉唱片部門,文恩澄又要重回幕後。

不過她沒有放棄,繼續幫自己及其他歌手作歌,為其他歌手演唱會彈琴,做電視及電台的主持工作等等。她又跟網絡紅人「Ming仔」合作,拍攝短片,亦開始了自己的video blog,分享自己「攝影」、「打機」、「種花」的心得,每條片動不動就有幾萬views ….今年她又再簽新的唱片公司,預計將會推出新唱片。巧合的是,她的最新派台歌,正是10年前引領她入行的作品《水孩子》。想聽/看她親自講解自己「曲折」的當歌手旅程,可點/按下面的影像聲音連結。

pinkwork粉紅貓遇上「孖人廚房」兄弟 pinkcat ‘s 1st meet “Twins Kitchen” brothers

HOW I meet these 2 talented human beings? I was accidentally directed to their facebook while “googling” something one day, firstly get impressed by their food snaps. After digging out more about them, including their wine background, magazine columns, casual homemade recipes and etc. … You know “curious” pinkcat like to make friends with creative and interesting human beings, so I send them an email to ask for a meeting (didn’t know whether they like cat or not … =^.^= ). The very nice twins replied shortly and invited me to come to their office /studio/private kitchen …

MEOW …these twin brothers (Caleb and Joshua) are a rising talent in HK food, drink & lifestyle circles recently. Graduated from UCLA in 2009 with business degrees, these two young men aka Twins Kitchen did not go to find a high-salary job. Instead they went back to HK, set up a small company and became a Wine Merchant. “Yes, food and wine are our interest since we were young. We also love cooking and successfully made our first pancake at age 7.” said Joshua.

They’ve also extended this interest beyond business. In their spare time, they like to organize some private dining gatherings with their friends. Not just booking a michelin starred restaurant, they would search for the hidden gems in the city, maybe at a one-table upstairs private kitchen. They would also invite talented chefs to do the catering or cook on their own using fresh and seasonal ingredients. Of course, one of the highlights of each of this gathering is food-wine pairings, their speciality.

Since participants were all so satisfied with this kind of dining experience, spread by word of mouth, more and more “friends of friends” would like to join, among them include celebrities, famed lifestyle journalists, food writers and etc.. Their names quickly made a stir in the food and culture circles.

Now the Twins have column in lifestyle magazine in HK. Their “Twins Kitchen’ youtube videos are popular. They’ve published a Wine Journal with notebook brand Moleskine and hold a “Taste” exhibition at Kapok. We could expect more funny crossover projects by them is coming ….

「粉紅貓」跟這兩位人類是怎認識的?就是一次網上無聊遊逛,走進了這對孖生兄的面書。看見他們拍的一些餐廳、食物相片,很有趣。記得有一張是影下他們在food court用餐時,用膠兜飲紅酒,豪邁得來很有品味! 好奇八卦的我再看看他們以往寫的雜誌專欄、創作的食譜,甚至藝術展覽。馬上寫了一封電郵約見面,結果他們很快回覆,邀請我到訪他們的辨公室+工作室+私人廚房。﹝都說網上識人「類」很容易的,特別是做主動 ….﹞

說回正經的,伍柏基 Joshua 及伍柏華 Caleb 兩位孖生兄弟﹝代號「孖人廚房」﹞今年才廿多歲,09年UCLA洛杉磯加大商業系畢業後,不去找一份高薪的工作,選擇返回香港,搞起餐酒生意來。不出半年,生意已上了軌道。「在美國居住時已愛上飲食及對酒有點研究。我們亦喜歡入廚,幾歲大已成功煮出第一個PANCAKE!」 Joshua說。他們還將這份興趣擴展到生意以外。

閒時他們最愛搞飯局。不是隨便去找一間米芝蓮星餐廳便算。兩兄弟會發掘一些鮮為人知或未有人知的餐廳,不論大小,可以是一間只有一張餐桌的樓上私房菜。他們也會找一些合心水的廚師到會,遇上一些新鮮時令食材,他們更會親自下廚。當然每次飯局的重點之一,就是酒和食物的完整配搭,也是兩位孖生兄弟的專長。如今他們差不多每星期也會在自己的工作室+私家廚房內,搞一次由他們親自設計菜單及下廚的私房菜,但只限相熟朋友才有機會被邀請參舉。

由於參與過「孖人廚房」飯局的人都十分喜歡這種經驗,經口耳相傳,本來是他們和朋友之間的私人飯局,漸漸愈來愈多「朋友的朋友」也爭相要求加入。當中包括很多名人、資深的傳媒人及文化人。《號外》創辦人之一鄧小宇就曾在文章內以「久違了的優雅」來形容這對孖生兄弟。

現在的「孖人廚房」在本地飲食、文化界已愈來愈有名。他們有自己的雜誌專欄,分享飲食心得、自己創作的簡單食譜。他們的YouTube短片很受歡迎,上年和筆記簿品牌Moleskine合作推出品酒手冊,在Kapok舉行了「品味地圖」展覽。預計更多的搞作將會面世呢。

其賓拍攝背後,我們還談了很多無聊事,如那裡可買一些小型的LED燈,方便他們平日拍食物SNAP SHOTS用,還有粉紅貓可否食一餐他們的私房菜 … 跟一般開門做生意的「私房菜」不同,孖人廚房的飯局,他們只會邀請私人好友參與 …
