Day 163: There is no passion to be found playing small-in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living. -Nelson Mandela

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
There’s an obsession with “being a twenty-something”.
I don’t want to be creating more ideas and definitions on yet another online platform, giving people bullet pointed lists of excuses for them to act the way they do. We don’t need to define you on TwentyBliss. We want to hear your ideas, give you resources and an audience. It’s about coming together with things that we have in common at an age where so many opportunities are in front of us, and executing them. Curating and cultivating our futures together.
We should be seeking inspiration, not validation.
We want to create a global conversation about art. Art should be for everyone. How many times have you walked into galleries feeling as though you have to hold your breath as well as your tongue? Art should be celebrated in a welcoming and comfortable environment, connecting individuals. That’s what a TwentyBliss exhibition is.
People in their twenties often have so much to say, but don’t necessarily have anyone to listen, which is why we are also currently shooting a short film in LA (clips of it was shown in the video above), interviewing people in their twenties and asking them to share their perspective of our generation.
As artists ourselves, we understand the crippling fear that comes with showing your work. We believe that part of the intimidation comes from having to approach galleries and all the in-between details of putting together an opening night- We want to eliminate that. We’ll guide you and provide a guaranteed audience for you to be heard.
It’s all about connecting people at the end of the day.
Every little bit counts. Please help spread the word.

Little Bao is best described as the new kid in town that all the foodies and journalists are obsessed with. My Instragram has exploded with mentions of Lil’ Bao in the last month. Sarah are I felt like the “last people in Hong Kong” when we finally decided to check out the restaurant. It didn’t disappoint. The food is beyond amazing. I’m coming back for everything.
Woke up at a 5:20 am today and made my way to the airport. What a beautiful day. I had forgotten how magical early mornings can be.
People always talk about following their passion and dreams, but if you stop and ask them the simple question, why, I find that most people are dumbfounded. They don’t know why and they haven’t really given it much thought.
I raised this in a conversation recently and was referred to a talk by Simon Sinek, Start with why. I didn’t remember it at the time, but I’ve actually seen this one before. Admittedly, it had slipped my mind, so it was a good refresher and conveys exactly what I mean.
Start with why. Rationalise it, understand your underlying motivation. If you do, you might actually get started with that one thing you’ve been meaning to do for a while.
People don’t buy what you do, they buy why you do it.
As everyone who starts spending time in Sheung Wan, I am loving the area.
Here’s a story. My fourteen year old sister decided to bake cupcakes for her friend’s birthday. Cupcakes = 10/10. Her icing on the other hand was a complete disaster. And thus, I stepped in and whipped up what I would like to call the best icing ever.
Who said I am useless in the kitchen?!
