10 minutes with Jo Soh on the Mandarin Gallery blog.

While my team and I get busy with setting up the new shop at Mandarin Gallery today, here's a short interview with me, on Mandarin Gallery's own blog.

Hello, hansel?

My new shop at Mandarin Gallery is due to open in just a little over one week's time!
I bought ONE of these two cool retro-style phones for the new shop - guess which one?
(Answer: Come to the new shop to find out.)

Things that caught my eye in Bangkok.

A graphic sticker that reminds passengers travelling on Bangkok's Skytrain to please offer their seats to monks - I love how they interpreted the lines of a monk's wrapped outfit in stylized motif.

Two chairs sitting by the sidewalk made from found materials.

Dublin Road apartments.

Lovely patterns to be found if you look for them - snapped these shots while waiting for my ride at the ground floor of an walk-up apartment in the middle of the city. Guess which one is my personal favourite?

The colourful lit buttons of course! They remind me of spaceship control panels featured in 1950s films!

Mister Pirate Playmobil.

I played with so much Playmobil when I was a kid I was thrilled to see this SUPER HUGE one standing at the Toys"R"Us store exit at Forum Galleria. (These guys are usually about two and half inches tall.) If you look closely at his five o'clock shadow, you can see that they are just marker dots!

A gift from someone who knows that I am a sucker for diagonal stripes, especially Black/Off-white ones - DIAGONALLY STRIPED MASKING TAPE IN BLACK/OFF-WHITE from Japan.

Plus! Silver ones! Mmmmmm...........
