ABOUT CHI CHI VON TANG :
Many of my legions of fans think Chi Chi Von Tang is a joint-partnership between me, Dato Kee Hua Chee and Sir David Tang of Shanghai Tang. My nickname is Chee Chee (or Chi Chi, same same lah) among my intimate lovers you see and a fashion collaboration between me and Sir David Tang seems a perfect fit.
But no, this is not a Malhoko (Malaysia and Hong Kong, get it?) project as CHI CHI VON TANG is a Singaporean label born out of design inspiration from Asia and the Warrior Spirit.
The collections fuse contemporary street wear with luxury materials and finishings, and focuses on Statement Jackets.
The bestselling CHI CHI Warrior Bomber has been worn by the likes of Mick Jagger, Mr. Mickey, Natalie Imbruglia, and our beloved Eve - It is a brand that celebrates unique spirits, courage and color.
The CHI CHI VON TANG boutique is located in Singapore's prime shopping district of Orchard Road, at Scotts Square, across from Alexander McQueen and adjacent to Hermès.
ABOUT NIMBLE FINGER CAMBODIA:
The first time I heard of Nimble Fingers, I thought Rebekah Yeoh was training squadrons of young thieves to be pickpockets and robbers as they all have nimble fingers, right? Ask Oliver Twist! Fancy rounding up all the homeless kids in Cambodia, house them, feed them and teaching them how to steal before unleashing them in Southeast Asian capitals---how nefarious and devious is that?
Anyway after Rebekah pinned me to the floor in an inescapable necklock, she explained, "The Nimble Fingers project aims to create a cohort of social change that engages deeply with underpriviledged Cambodian children to improve access to business knowledge through creative enterprising.
"It is a model aimed at empowering children to earn rather than take. The objective of the project is to teach the children not to spend the profits impulsively, but to recycle them in a sustainable and scalable way. This empowers them to come up with creative ideas whilst gaining access to the market."
So Nimble Fingers simply means using your fingers to work and create stuff while limbering up your mind so your digits stay nifty and nimble, Praise the Lord.
IT'S CHI CHI NOT CHEE CHEE AS FROM MY NAME, OK?
