By
After remembering the preservation period, the "Hong Kong Impression" is like melting ice, and it can no longer return to a specific shape. Despite this, the huge beauty of this “urban jungle” is still an important basis for travelers to identify the cultural latitude and longitude of the city – the bright lights of the Taiping Mountain, the British glory of Victoria Harbour, and the souvenir of the women’s street. Selling... There are still commemorative ornaments in the tin box that are engraved with "I love HK", but the engraving about travel seems to be sleeping in memory forever, and it won't wake up. Once again, I "seen" Hong Kong, but it was photographed through the neighborhood of the ice shop on the Eastern District. "Sham Shui Po", the area where they are not involved in "rich", is full of Hong Kong colors everywhere.

Wontonmeen is located in an ordinary residential area. There is no obvious sign outside the store. If you don't pay attention, you will pass the entrance on Lai Chi Kok Road. The exploratory journey that will start after the plane is landing is still to be continued. With the luggage entering the hard-to-find hostel, it was too late to stop sweating, and another adventure was unpredictable. Passing through the bright and laid-back café on the first floor to the lobby of the hotel, you have yet to say goodbye to the modern world of coffee, and step into the Hong Kong in the 80s. Advocating the "land" living experience, the founder of Wontonmeen Patricia is not casual; in order to let the like-minded friends have a place to gather, graduated from the Department of Interior Design of the Hong Kong Polytechnic University, she will succeed in the underground The public space creates a unique partiality with a Hong Kong character. In the dim light, all kinds of posters, old furniture, messy hanger art works, and nostalgic decorations with a damp smell, like an underground market, piled up in the mix and match the Hong Kong-style aesthetics in the movie "In the Mood for Love". Unlike the usual bunks in the general youth travel, Wontonmeen, like the 10 beds stacked in Tetris, is a "cage house" designed from the cohabitation phenomenon in Hong Kong. The skeleton is made of iron mesh. It looks cold and has both Ventilation, storage and other functions (the grid can freely hang the ascending sac, can also add curtains to create a private space), truthfully interpret what is meant, "the sparrow is small, complete and complete." Patricia also hopes to explore the disparity between the rich and the poor, which is deeply buried in the reinforced walls, through its chaotic and orderly hostel structure. The most popular one is probably the outdoor space with the "Hong Kong" neon sign. Come and relax in the morning or before going to sleep, feel the outdoor air, look at the sky between the concrete walls, let the body and soul take a deep breath; when you are leisurely, you can also go to the coffee shop on the first floor and have a cup of baking from Urban Coffee Roaster Coffee, in the minimalist chain-washing space, is open to chatting with the neighbors, while exchanging the feelings of life and feeling the fresh vitality that is completely different from the hostel. In the middle of the night, if the night cat factor on the body is crazy, if you are lucky, you may also get an old Hong Kong film, a guitar performance, or an open hearted recreation in the lobby. Under the warm light, harvest the long-lost smile. Patricia, which values ​​art and cultural exchanges, not only regularly holds art and art sharing sessions in Wontonmeen, but also invites different young artists to cooperate and promote local art exchanges.

City secrets, walking into the room with flowers and coffee: Bangkok Flower House Coffee Shop, Oneday Wallflowers &Nana Coffee

By
As the capital and economic center of Thailand, Bangkok has always been a meeting place for multiculturalism. Because of the large population of the countries, the local landscape can also be seen everywhere. The Japanese, Korean Street, Chinatown and other regions follow the time traction. The local customs of Thailand have formed a cultural glory that is difficult to replace. This "diversity" is now also reflected in the local store style, whether it is the royal style of Russia, or the streetscape of the Chinese style, all of which are in this place, full of vitality. It is located in the heart of Bangkok's Chinatown, adjacent to a laneway in Hua Lamphong, named Soi Nana, originally the name of Lane, which has become a block of the district. The area is generally used for residential land. Later, because the housing prices in Chinatown are more affordable than the commercial districts, many young people are unexpectedly attracted to start a business. New bars, cafes and art salons are opening in the old streets. Injecting a fresh vitality into the quaint area. A small shop in the entrance of Soi Nana, hidden behind flowers and climbing ornaments, looks out of the old streets, but this combines the space of the Oneday Wallflowers with the cafe Nana Coffee Roaster. It is one of the reasons for the continuous flow of passengers here. Formerly a 100-year-old residence, the building has been transformed by the owner and architect Nattaphat Suriyakhamphol, and has now become a trendy space to stand in the community and showcase a fascinating picture of life. Pushing open the door that was submerged by flowers and green plants, the first thing that caught the eye was the flower room Oneday Wallflowers. Among the flowers in the room, only a few clerk were focusing on packaging and finishing the flowers. When the Nattaphat was rebuilt, the space on the first floor was separated by two rooms. One was used as a flower house today. In addition to creating large-area wall cabinets for professional equipment, it also installed a refrigeration system to keep the flowers fresh; deeper One is the space where the florist and the founder of the flower house, Nattaphat, use their own materials and office space. Guided by the clerk, stepping onto the spiral staircase in the corner, and stepping up the ladder, it is the cafe Nana Coffee Roaster. The structure of the second to third floors of the building is particularly interesting. The space fan shape generally unfolds from the periphery of the stairs, as if it is also a preview of the "upward" process, a visual tour that is about to open. The encounter with Nana Coffee Roaster began with the copper bar "Mod bar"; the luster of red copper reflected slightly on the surface of the coffee maker and became the focus of attention in ancient buildings. The back panel of the bar is more collaged with colored wood, and with a hand-painted world map, the coffee scent is used to lead the visitors to the lazy daily life of Bangkok. If you go with your friends, you will be able to bathe in the warm sunshine. If you are alone, you are not afraid of squatting. While you are biting the straw and observing the brewing process of the barista, it is also an interesting afternoon scene. "Our floral works are natural and unrestrained, like a bunch of flowers and plants from the garden or the wild." - Oneday Wallflowers is a distant and fascinating seating area in the rear glass window. Under the light, it looks like an open-air corner, but it is actually a greenhouse-like indoor space; no matter which floor of the building, you can see Nattaphat's ingenuity with flowers and plants. The high and low level of the stairs in the building, the scattered light of the glass and the flowers, the planting and floral utensils hanging down everywhere are all charming and endless dimensions; the old atmosphere is filled with natural proverbs, like this building. From the initial landing, it should be generated. Irregular, imperfect, mottled and sometimes visible landing leaves, but casually framed by fingers, are poetic images. The space on the third floor is like a sky garden. In addition to the terrace seats, a glass house is built especially here. The sun passes through the translucent roof and randomly shuttles and overlaps in the surrounding green trees and mosaics. The space is full of a strong rural atmosphere. At the beginning of 2018, the roof bar, Wallflowers Upstairs, was born under the planning. The exquisite flower arrangement was as usual, and then the wooden table was used to build a simple bar, with retro-style tables, chairs and decorations, waiting quietly for people to visit in Bangkok. The view is appetizer, immersed in elegant leisure time. Walking away from the mystery of the noisy city, more precisely, we seem to have mistaken a friendly, charming apartment for strangers, surrounded by walls of new paint and old paint layers, unconsciously relaxed Down, just want to quietly gaze at the lush vegetation and the old things, and explore the unique beauty of the corners of the store. At a certain moment, I feel like I am in a large greenhouse. The sun is warm, the summer is cool, the flowers are overflowing, and there is a cup of cold coffee in front of me. Maybe this is Bangkok. It is a kind of heat close to ideal life. Oneday Wallflowers 31-33 ซอย นานา Pom...
