The Hong Kong beekeeper harvesting hives barehanded

High up in the hills above Hong Kong, Yip Ki-hok uses nothing but his bare hands to remove a honey-filled nest of swarming bees -- a remarkable skill he learned after the hardship of China's famine years. While most new beekeepers buy insects from those with already established colonies, Yip prefers a more organic method, trekking into the hills and catching wild bees using skills he developed through trial and error from the age of seven.

Klasie Kraalogies: Purity Culture?

Purity Culture? by Klasie Kraalogies In January 2015, the Washington Post announced that the famed Joshua Harris, author of “I Kissed Dating Goodbye”, announced his resignation from his church, and headed off to seminary. Then, by August 2016 we read that he had started grappling with the reality that maybe he wasn’t quite correct. However, from 1997 when the book was published, the no-dating-no-sex-contact-no-nothing model of courtship blossomed in the US. But…. Let me tell you an older st...

Indonesia-focused Intudo Ventures raises new $50M fund

Intudo Ventures, a VC firm focused on Indonesia, has closed a new $50 million fund. This is Intudo’s second fund to date following its $20 million debut last year. The firm is a relative newcomer to Southeast Asia but a key differentiator is that it is solely focused on Indonesia, which is the world’s fourth most populated country with over 260 million people and the region’s largest economy. It is also the dominant market for tech and the internet in the region. According to a much-cited report...

All I want (to make) for Christmas: Yip Yips stockings

OMG, these hand-crocheted Yip Yips stockings by Carissa Browning sure do make me smile. The big mouths of Sesame Street's Muppet martians are perfect for stuffing in holiday gifts (and later for storing toys, Browning suggests). One catch: If you want these, you'll have to crochet or knit them yourself. Fortunately, Browning has provided patterns for them which can be downloaded for free from her Ravelry page. The spaceship has landed, and any fan of late 20th century children’s public televisi...

Frozen: An ice-cool Suzuki GN400 street tracker

You could argue that the modern custom scene owes its success to Universal Japanese Motorcycles. They’re affordable, reliable and easy to pull apart—making them the perfect blank canvas for builders. Not all UJMs get equal time in the limelight, though. And according to Ventus Garage of Kraków, Poland, there’s one that deserves a lot more love: the Suzuki GN400. So they’ve turned a GN400 into a cool street tracker coated in BMW’s famous matte ‘Frozen’ paint. “The Suzuki GN400 is a very ove...

The Colorado Avalanche: An Odyssey of Idiocy, Part 1

After a dismal 2016-17 season, the Colorado Avalanche are in the midst of their third rebuild in 10 years. But who’s counting? It’s not like the Avs haven’t had the resources to improve. Their various rebuilds have yielded some high draft picks and top-tier NHL talent. Yet here we are, now almost 10 years removed from the Avs’ last playoff series win in 2008, and the team put up the kind of atrocious, nauseating, disgusting year they haven’t endured since they were called the Quebec Nordiques. ...

Employees at this Hong Kong company get an annual one-month sabbatical to offset 21-hour workdays

Achieving work-life balance is hard enough with an eight-hour workday. But a 21-hour day? Forget it. Such is life at the boutique ad agency Secret Tour Hong Kong, where normal work days are 10 hours long and overtime days are often twice that. STHK co-founders Jennifer Yip and Stephen Chung believe that hard work deserves recognition, however, which is why the company will begin offering annual one-month paid sabbaticals to each of their 16 employees starting later this August. Half the staff wi...
