Pop Up Asia 2017


Few days after Pinkoi Market, journey continued to Pop Up Asia. Remember my post last year that I shared about the first year of PUA? This year I decided to join in their second year, which is bigger and more activities like workshops and international forums.

In 松山文創園區 Songshan Cultural and Creative Park, 亞洲手創展 Pop Up Asia officially started with the opening of 최루시아 Lucia's performance with her calligraphy moves. In front of a group of media and audience, she wrote the word: "POP UP ASIA". Below is the rehearsal video a night before. I did Instastory that day but forgot to save the video (sorry.. >.<).

Mighty Lucia performed two times that day! Another one was at the opening night party, in the evening right after we called the day. This time she wrote: "손으로 만드는 세상", which means: Handmade World.


Lucia and I shared the same booth in warehouse #3, while our other friends set up booths in separate warehouse next to us. There are many familiar brands attending this year as well: 木梁作 Muliangzuo - the art of wood & metal fusion,  DoDo 手作 - animal drawn ceramic dishes, 匠子設計 ChanZ Studio - marble home decor, 小房子裝可愛手作村 BJ Art Village - mini houses pottery, 右手超人 Yohand - cute illustrations, 麥戈 Magger - from and for bulldog lovers, Spruce Artistry - indigo style hand-dyed fabric, 날닭 Naldak - all about chicken, Hanaduri - handmade soap, Haeiz Mundle - pattern maker, 책짓기 Chaekjitgi - pop-up book artists (our good friends!), Luvinball - magical snowball jewelry, Liunic On Things - illustrations for the connoisseurs of cute (the only other brand from Indonesia) , and many more local and international brands from Asian countries.

Although I've expressed my gratitude several times in Facebook and Instagram, but still, I'd like to thank my friends who helped me during four days in Pop Up Asia..

Thanks to Ben for lending me your super pro LED light! Without you my booth will be very dark!
Thanks to Choe In-ho for coming all your way from Korea to support us
Thanks to 이제 for lending me your big mirror, dried flowers, chairs, and bought super nice lunch!
Thanks to 維尼 for your pineapple cakes. Yumm..
Thanks to Yaching for coming from Keelung to meet me (*hug)
Thanks to 책짓기 윤혜 for your fruits, 우리 for joining my workshop, and 오인 for buying a bracelet from me. Love y'all! ❤️

Very happy to meet Mickey Huang 黃子佼大哥, a famous Taiwanese TV host, comedian, actor and entrepreneur. My name was called three times! Haha! XD


I also did some workshops, teaching how to make necklace and bracelet with their own selection of stones and materials. I then suggested the design and guided each student how to make it into final pieces. Attendees are from Macau, Malaysia, Korea, Hong Kong and Taiwan. It was fun! 🤩

Our days won't be complete without having dinner together! We surely get together every night, keep smiling and laughing even for the simplest thing, because happiness is handmade. 😊

We make handmade, give handmade, buy handmade, live handmade #讓喜歡的事成為生活

Thank you Pop Up Asia! Till we meet again! ^^
