Ubi Gallery in Dashilar Showcases and Curates Designer Jewelry + Ceramics
A contemporary jewelry art and ceramics designer boutique, Ubi Gallery basically epitomizes what I wish Nanluoguxiang (NLGX) would look to for inspiration. But maybe NLGX is beyond hope at this point in, what I like to call tourism-madness-at-its-absolute-worst.
In essense, Ubi Gallery is exactly the kind of quality, creative and interesting boutique that makes Dashilar such a growing and highly reputable creative hub. And in case you’re already thinking about that big shopping list of yours, YES! this is where I plan to do most of my Christmas shopping this year. No more fake everything or poorly made rubbish, Ubi Gallery showcases premium “applied art” as they call it, but you can also just say gorgeous, limited edition designer jewelry and ceramics made by different artists from all over the world.

The Yoganda Project by Taozi Tree Yoga’s Founder Theresa Pauline
The first time I laid eyes on these gorgeous, vibrant Yoganda yoga bags was at The Hutong‘s annual and festive winter fayre. With so many bright colors, these bags popped out among all the other merchandise for sale and I couldn’t help but admire all the colorful patterns and and learn more about this passion project.
Started by yogi and world traveler Theresa Pauline, who is also founder of Taozi Tree Yoga, she wanted to find a self-sustainable solution to bringing vulnerable women out of extreme poverty in Uganda. A project that developed after several trips to Uganda, this is a project that remains very close to her heart as Uganda is where Theresa’s sister is the founder and head of the Musana project.
“Musana is a non-profit organization led and run by community members that creates local businesses to generate income that will sustain all outreach projects that cater towards the community’s needs. These initiatives include educating vulnerable children and orphans about God’s love while building them into knowledgeable leaders with integrity, empowering women through skill development and employment, and enlightening the community on how to live holistic, healthy lives.”

You Are Rong: T-Shirts with Chinese Characters and British Wit
A cheeky t-shirt brand called Rong, this is a crafty, ingenious concept that combines Chinese idioms and phrases derived from Chinese literature or history with an illustration and/or Western slogan.
More than just a direct translation so that you know what you’re wearing and why (each tee comes equipped with its own explanation tag), these catchy tees give their wearers an English slogan with an added humorous edge and leave their readers with a wealth of interpretation while still staying true to and maintaining the essence of the original Chinese meaning (the antithesis of Chinglish).
What is Rong, you ask?
