“I feel that it constantly shifts and evolves, but it’s always been the same neighbourhood it’s always been since I moved here all those years ago.”
In addition to being known for his award-winning interior design, JJ is also in demand for his blog, theWanderlister+ where he writes about travel, F&B, design and fashion.
“Causeway Bay has always been the fashion centre of Hong Kong. I mean, if you don’t have a Causeway Bay store then what’s the point of having one at all? I love the neighbourhood around my office, the Jaffe Road lane shops and tall buildings filled with bars, Japanese food and independent fashion shops.”
Despite the many changes in his life since living in the neighbourhood, Causeway Bay still holds an inimitable appeal for JJ.
“I feel that it constantly shifts and evolves, but it’s always been the same neighbourhood it’s always been since I moved here all those years ago. Now that I’m an established designer running my own projects, it’s really nice to have an office just a block away from my first apartment. I used to have a tiny harbour -view on the fourth floor of a walk-up in Paterson Street, and now I have breathtaking wall-to-wall view on the 20th floor of a brand new tower only a few minutes away. If that’s not a dream come true, I don’t know what is.”
