After spending three days in Panama, I learned about the architecture, cuisine, fashion, history, sights and now truly appreciate the culture.
What an experience in May. For me, music is what keeps me going, similar to most of you. Imagine three hours and a half hours of heavy riffs and amazing drum solos completely take over your mind and soul.
Then I still can’t believe I survived a heavy metal gig! Mastodon blew me away. Tracks including Blood And Thunder, Ember City and Show Yourself were my favourites. The collective headbanging and intense mosh pits were exciting enough for one to let loose and enjoy at the Hammerstein Ballroom. Clearly, I’m going to another concert soon.
Founder of Comme des Garçons and Dover Street Market, Rei Kawakubo (川久保 玲) is exploring brave new fashion. Avant-garde designs were created to challenge conventional thoughts for an upcoming exhibition.
The themed show displays around 140 pieces of Kawakubo’s womenswear collections from the 1980s to present day. The galleries demonstrate experimental ways to illustrate the space between boundaries. Rei Kawakubo continues to shape the face of global art and fashion with her work.
The Rei Kawakubo / Comme des Garçons: Art of The In-Between exhibition debuts on 04 May 2017 until 04 September 2017 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.
Visit the world’s greatest private collections of photography. The works feature from the period of the 1920s through to the 1950s.

Also, there are about 159 vintage prints by 70 other artists who are influential figures including Brassai, André Kertész, Dorothea Lange and Aleksandr Rodchenko. Lastly, there’s a sneak peek of Elton John’s masterpieces in photography. The Radical Eye exhibition is on until 21 May 2017 at the Tate Modern in London.
Can’t wait to explore new destinations soon with my love. Bring on 2017!
