i got an email over the weekend from Franz, a photographer based in Singapore whose site lilreddotfolks features inspiring people in Singapore & their personal spaces. i really love the feature on Lucy Siah and Josephine Lau who run mother & daughter floral studio Daughters by Floral Magic. be sure to keep your eye on lilreddotfolks as they will hopefully be expanding into more of Asia soon. you can also follow them on Facebook.

Coffeeklatch means ‘slow journalism using a fast medium’. i particularly loved their interview with garden designers Bart & Pieter.
