Next Sniff Sniff   2 comments

Many of you checked out my Sniff Sniff video a week or two ago, which surprisingly went “mini-viral” across Tokyo and led me to meet some really cool people. The event promoter held another party, called “Next Sniff Sniff” and here are a few pictures. A short video is coming soon, shot in a similar theme of black & white. Just like before, this party was held at Trump Room, in the exciting hot spot of Shibuya.

Hello Kl!tty killed it. They played an awesome set.

Tokyo food blogger Fashimi looking delectable as always.

Mr. G, we go waaay back!

All must kiss the moose head. Or is that a deer?

Didn’t realize I got this awesome shot of photographer Alex Wuillaume doing his thing at the event.

*Hello Kl!tty* and Die Antwoord (Ninja) in Tokyo!   2 comments

On long weekends in Tokyo, there are a million parties to attend. I checked out a party with special guests, Ninja, a.k.a Die Antwoord from South Africa. Also playing that night, my lovely friend from the duo, Hello Kl!tty. The night got so crazy I promised i would write a real blog about this. Hopefully coming soon. The night was too much fun for the world not to know : p I’ve also posted a video from youtube with some of Ninja’s music. Pretty cool stuff!

Hello Klitty did a wicked fab job playing music that got the crowd pumping. Good vibes, good people!

Ninja himself on the ones and twos!

This video really gave me the vibe of the group. Definitely check out their videos on you tube. Good times!

Futsal time!   3 comments

This is a quick video of my first time playing “Futsal” a sort of watered down version of football, in Tokyo. This has to be the most interesting environment i’ve ever played soccer in, with high rise buildings around me, trains in the background and super super cold weather. Check it out!

These are some great shots I got at a recent party I attended. Guess I really am in Tokyo!

This is my favourite. Feels like “Lost in Translation” or something i’d see on a CNN website.

Brad Elterman 2010 Tokyo Reception party   Leave a comment

Got an invite to the reception party of renowned photographer Brad Elterman, who has shot such famous figures as Michael Jackson, Bob Dylan and many more. Free drinks and cool company plus a sweet converted warehouse space was a nice vibe. There was also a great performance by Tokyo Rock chica, ESIE. Biggups to MC Ayanee for the link!

Loved the warehouse space.

Me and the big man himself.
