The Keverend aka WhatTheBlood aka Kevin from CLOT also runs Juice here in Hong Kong. Operating off of the covert no-sign adage, the store is tucked away upstairs in the Causeway Bay fashion district. Considering I’ve been here a few times, and that I’ve never been able to find it until Kevin took us up yesterday, shows you the cards they’re playin’ with.
Stocking the more prestigious Japanese-influenced street brands, including NBHD, PAM, Nike Tier 0, and Katie…
There’s also plenty of Medicom action in here, including the CLOT Bearbricks…
Nice little gift from the Keverend… the Juice x Ban Dai Tamagotchi.
Every time I travel anywhere in the world, there is nothing I miss more than Mexican food. I thought it was a lost cause until WhatTheBlood and Sean (Nike) took us through Central’s SOHO area to Ay Caramba.
Then we were off to a Reflexology Foot Massage spot. Which sounds super random, because IT IS. I have pictures of the crew sleeping while Chinese women get jiggy with their lil’ piggies, but that could just plummet street cred stock, so I’ll move on.
Sean took us back to his apartment. “Unfortunately, no one does anything for themselves over here,” he tells us, as he picks up his laundry from the shop downstairs. No laundry machines, and not even stoves inside the flats, because everyone just eats out or picks up. No time for domestic chores when there’s so much work and partying to get out the way.
This was done by the dude behind Undercover. The Undercover bear is everywhere out here. “We make noise. Not clothes.” Nuff said.
As strange as it sounds, I guess it’s pretty easy to fall into the Boredom pit out here, so you gotta stick your fingers in odd hobbies to keep you sane. Gadgetry, music, skating, whatever. A lot of people head over to the air-gun street in Mong Kok to load up on the sickest air-guns that are so intricately detailed, that they are pretty much the real thing. Comparable in weight, finish, etc. Here’s one of Sean’s doo-dads. Fun.
Back in Causeway, there was a skating and b-boy sesh in the works. It’s a holiday today so everyone was pushing their Sunday night to the limits.
