Beautiful Unique Craft Beer @Richmond

This is a neat place to enjoy beautiful Vancity craft beers hidden in Richmond industrial area next to Ironwood plaza. They produce much variety with unique flavours that are different from the ordinary taste.

這是一家味美的精釀啤酒廠,位藏於列治文Ironwood後面的工業區中。出產許多獨特風格與令人驚豔的口味。


Meanwhile, under this pandemic situation, they offer beer delivery for a beer lover to enjoy and cheer.

在疫情當道的此刻,他們提供啤酒外送服務。滋潤一下愛啤者的心靈。


The Last Strawberry Wit & The Last Mango are two unique witbiers that are popular among the female population. It gives fresh fruit flavour and aroma in the first sip then a witbier taste will appear after. It is a smooth one with a light and clean body. Certainly, a lovely choice to enjoy in spring or summer afternoons under sunshine.

The Last Strawberry Wit & The Last Mango是女性歡迎的草莓與芒果風味小麥啤酒。入口時的淡淡的果香,而後迎來小麥的清甜。綿密的口感,清爽的酒體,絕對是春季或夏季晒著太陽午後悠閒的好選擇。


Gin & Lime Pils is a triple enjoyment. It gives three distinct flavour excitement mix with gin, lime and pilsner beer. Each flavour follows by its name’s order. If you are more cocktail drinker, this one would be your star.

Gin & Lime Pils 皮爾森式啤酒是一種三重奏享受。結合了琴酒、青檸與比爾森啤酒的三重風味。個人認為,這會是喜歡雞尾酒的老饕,另一種不一樣體驗的飲品。


Bean Me Up Espresso Milk Stout is a creamy dark type of beer choice. Somehow I am not a dark beer person, but I do enjoy this stout with flavourful nutty coffee flavour. Recommend coffee drinker another new experience.

Bean Me Up Espresso Milk Stout 是一個綿密的司陶特啤酒。一般來說自己並不是一個習慣黑啤酒的人,不過這款卻很鍾意,愛那咖啡的芳香與口感。是一個咖啡愛好者可以嘗試的一款啤酒。


Super 8-Bit IPA & Destiny IPA are two flavourful IPA. It has a depth of flavour with a strong hops bitterness character. It is a great one for the beer lover who favours unique craft beer.

Super 8-Bit IPA & Destiny IPA 是兩款風味豐富的印度淡色艾爾啤酒。擁有多層次的口感與濃厚的啤酒花香味與苦味。是精釀啤酒中很受啤酒人士的愛戴。


By the way, they also serve some yummy food for taste while enjoying lovely beer tasting.

它們也有提供一些好吃的小點食物來搭配美味的精釀啤酒。

Event | 紀實
LYFE Vancouver – Masquerade Yacht Event
Our Luxurious Invite alongside the first issue of LUXJ PS – Your Invite contains a 100$ Giftcard to Green Field Spa
Serving Tuxedo Mask 2015 Realness on the Red Carpet with talented Youtube Star Sisters Linda & Kelly Dong.


LYFE Vancouver brought Glamour back to the city (and the Ocean) and literally gave me LYFE with their roaring 20’s inspired Fashion Masquerade Party! LYFE means “Live Young Forever” – with their definitive taste & efficiency in event planning I knew we were in store for a night to remember. For this event, I was styled by my new Stylist the talented Raul Manriquez of Raul YYC Fashion Styling, who is also coming up with 2 more looks for me this summer when we cover The Deighton Cup 2015 next week, and Diner En Blanc Vancouver in late August. Kuna & I headed down to the docks at the Plaza of Nations, where we first enjoyed a Luxury Car Show before hitting up the Red Carpet:

Beautiful Models posed beside Luxury Cars.


The VIP guests then walked down the Red Carpet holding beautifully crafted Invitations before boarding the beautiful 3 floor mega-yacht “The Magic Spirit” which holds capacity at 400 people.

Cathy Lai knocked this event out of the park! She, at 23 is the owner of LYFE Vancouver, Lux. J, & Live Young Forever Holding Group Ltd. With elite sponsors such as Versace & Aston Martin backing Cathy, I’d say this talented young Mogul has only begun to blow us away by giving us a juicy taste with this event of what’s to come. I know she will continue to succeed Worldwide.


On to the fun times! I had a blast. As we boarded the “Magic Spirit”, I spotted these killer shoes worn by a VIP guest ahead of me in line. Kuna & I had to street-style snap this gentleman as I enjoyed his shades, the pearl embellishments on his white dress shirt & those zippered pants paired with these beauties.

Those shoes though. Want!
“Mama” Keiko Boxall looking fabulous as always, still scouting young talent as a Runway Coach and Agent in Vancouver – she met me when I was 21 & I was doing my first shoots and runway shows like a model and has served as a role model, mentor and Matriarchal figure in our Fashion Industry for decades! Slay, Keiko, Slay!


I made fast friends with a talented Fashion Designer named Angela Huang – who left me gagged as all I could say in my first introductory words to her, was “Beautiful!” to which she replied, “You Too”. The rest was history! Her 1920’s inspired red dress was designed by Angela herself (Angel Huang Design) & she killed it! GIRL.

It was my intention with this event to cover the fashion that I felt brought the essence of the 1920’s all the way into 2015 & Angela Huang definitely rocked that, especially in this impromptu shoot we had with Kuna Lu on the side deck of the vessel, where I shouted ‘your man is lost at Sea!’ & she channelled the feeling instantly! Angela Huang is always on point, we talked about how with her Instagram feed she expresses herself, as an Artist – her Insta-feed has a gradient flow with an International Fashion Blogger feel.

Angela Huang, Fashion Designer is extremely creative, kind, and beautiful!  


My homegirl Linda Dong cracks me up with her honest & hilarious social commentary in her comedy skits, which have made her a YouTube celebrity with millions of views. She is the Shit! Had so much fun with her and her sister Kelly Dong who is equally as talented (and beautiful!) and also stars in many of Linda’s videos which have risen to viral internet fame with her satire of different Stereotypes.

International Superstar DJ Pac Man flew in from Hong Kong just to play at this event & ripped things up on the decks all night while we got Turnt on the top deck LED dance floor PS -I love Pac-Man’s line of custom made luxe Watches, made with some of the same quality parts that Rolex uses to create their timepieces.

Cathy brought something fresh to the city by incorporating her outside-the-box concepts and wild ideas which has “built the foundation of a truly unique Chinese Canadian social platform” as described in her bio on the LYFE Vancouver website!

Mask #2


A VIP Media Gold wristband brought me up to the VIP Lounge where I enjoyed champagne, had a bottle of white & red served with hospitality by Magic Spirit staff which was shared with some new talented friends as we shared life stories while connecting with each other collectively.

Beautiful Ice Sculpture aboard the Magic Spirit Yacht – yes I touched it, I couldn’t resist?


Ice Sculptures with the LYFE Vancouver logo lined the Red Carpet aboard the top deck where two guards parted a gorgeous curtain which led us into VIP Lounge. Here, we enjoyed a large shell-shaped ice sculpture – elegantly cut which held a delicious spread of crab legs, raw oysters, fresh mussels & smoked salmon upon it catered by the Magic Spirit staff. Fabulous guests everywhere were clinking glasses, laughing and enjoying the stylish company surrounding them as we continued to experience the LYFE event & our voyage.

Floral centrepieces and displays by Elsie, The founder and head designer of Miss Qi Event Design who stayed up until 3am preparing the breathtaking Floral event design displays & shared with me (when we met) that she named her adorable son Justin because “anyone named Justin is good looking!”?

It was a pleasure to meet the owner of Blaq Sheep Coffee, Tan Tran – who definitely knows how to “Live Young Forever” (LYFE) & who’s lovely, beautiful wife is the sister of Hong Kong Actress and cantopop singer Cecelia Cheung, their brother is none other than DJ Pacman!

We finished the beautiful voyage and evening on the waters of Vancouver by dancing on the LED Dancefloor on the top deck of the yacht after another fun synchronized dance performance by the energetic GSG Productions, Inc dance troupe.

The Afterparty was held at the Shangri-La XiShi lounge & you could see Limos departing immediately after we landed back ashore. Keep your eyes on the events that LYFE Vancouver crank out in the future. I, for one am thrilled to see what they have in store for us!

Thank you so much for having us – hats off to Cathy & her team!

Elegant Walk at Gastown


The beautiful story began with a talented designer Mandy fashion while she travelled overseas for seeking Vancouver editorial photographer.

After her research, she narrows down the specific style that she is after for choosing the right candidate for this fashion project. And that’s how everything began at Steveston’s cafe shop. We all agree to focus on vintage fashion flavour and decided on having the theme set at Gastown. This historical location is full of artistic feel flow in the air. A lot of bricks’ texture and colour fulfil the scene that we are after. Of course, with Mandy’s skilful creation, we are able to capture stunning images through every shutter click. Mandy’s status is not only limited to fashion designer, she is also a famous model in China. With multiple identities, Mandy is able to enrich the content and visual interest into every photograph.

Personally, I am a big fan of the sleeves design and light pattern on the material. Reminds me of the white butterfly.
