|Fab 5 Freddy, QBar's Andrew Clark, Ever Fly Ms Q|
Artist & taste-maker Fab 5 Freddy presented his 1983 Hip Hop cult film "Wild Style" to a rapt audience of Bangkok's fly-est folks at hotspot Qbar.
After the film there was a short Q&A where he dropped science about Hip Hop as a lifestyle, street art, voting in the recent USA election via Absentee ballot and shouted out 2nd term President Obama.
(please forgive my enthusiastic "amen corner" commentary on the audio)
|"Lifestyle with Steve Johnston"|
Ever Fly Ms Q visited the "Lifestyle with Steve Johnston" show on 89.5 FM Phuket Live Radio to discuss the Ever Fly ethos and the "fly" approach to life in Phuket, Thailand.

|Chef Vincent Meuwly & Ever Fly Ms Q|
Libertine – dinners with a theme – is the brainchild of chic American food-lover Quetta Locchi – “Ms Q” to her fans, or “Ever Fly Ms Q” in her own alter ego.
I created this cocktail for the upcoming, Ever Fly Ms Q-hosted, Côte d'Azur | LIBERTINE at Le Winch. After having a few during the process, the headiness of the lavender really took me right back to my treasured visits to the South of France...so I named it after the french workers that harvest the lavender. Enjoy!

The LIBERTINE event "La Dolce Vita" on 1 Feb 2012 was close to my heart: the iconic Fellini movie playing in the background, Martini/Ultra-lounge mood music on the hi-fi, Phuket's bon vivant, libertine-set in a convivial state of mind and Chef Vincent's delicious interpretation of Italian & Roman classics.
But if last Wednesday catered to my yen for all things Italiano, next week's event is gonna send me soaring - Harlem Renaissance - yes, we are introducing Phuket to Soul Food!
