⇓WH.323 REVIVE ❼ 料理 Exotic cuisines⇑

This video clip was shot at our big dormitory in the suburb of Tokyo, where you can get familiar with various people from different countries and become buddies easily. Since you cook together, save money together (i.e., water, gas, and hang out for cheaper supermarkets nearby!)and watch the football matches together by big TV!


The article is about the Exotic Cuisine Party we held after course, featuring Korean ‘Tteok-bokki’ (トッポキ Stir-fried rice cakes in chilly paste), Taiwanese ‘Mapo tofu (麻婆豆腐), Vietnamese ‘Thit ga kho gung’ (Ginger Chicken) and the ‘Pakapou’ (パッカパオ Stir-fried minced pork with oyster oil) from Thailand! Yummy,Yummy😋

When it comes to dormitory, it reminds me of the ‘Capsule Hotel’ in Tokyo, which has been getting popular in Europe recently.

Not only for the budget backpackers, but also for people who need to catch the early flight (or miss out the last train home), this compact space seems a smart choice for travelling! Famous director Tsai Ming-Liang also shot the inside view of the capsule bed as the key scenes of his short film 《No No Sleep》(2015).

I attended the ‘No No Sleep at MoNTUE -Tsai Ming-Liang Solo Exhibition’ in 2016 which was very well-curated. For me, it was an marvellous experience to watch his Walker series films with soft pillows and laid down with nearly hundred ‘strangers’ (i.e., the audience) inside the museum till the dawn.

You do what the actors do, feeling the solitude but not feeling alone. Indeed a quasi-magic experience 🦄

The exhibition trailer (3:15) featuring 《No No Sleep》+《To the West》(2014)+《Autumn Days》(2015) is a pretty good one, recommended ☞ also the pamphlet :)

Day 68 平井。異国料理D.I.Y PARTY !!

..碰巧進門來買自動販賣機的印尼男生,被朴拉入座;那個來倒資源回收的馬來西亞姐姐也被抓過來,跟我們一起合照。今晚的菜色實在太豐富了。せい〜のう、「いただきます〜」.. more

這週要跟大家分享的是多人宿舍的房型,少則四人多則八人一間。如果喜歡熱鬧、想跟更多國籍的同學交流的話,這樣的住所會很適合 💮 一來是共用空間大,大家一起做菜很快就變熟絡 ; 二來是位在市郊的關係,附近超市的價格也會比都心內低一點。

提到宿舍,不由得讓我想起東京很知名的「膠囊旅館」,近年似乎也在歐洲風行起來—除了幫背包客省荷包,也讓趕不上末班飛機、或得趕超早廉價航空的旅客一個方便實惠的選擇。去年參觀蔡明亮在北師美術館的【無無眠】大展時,電影裡也收錄了看來頗為舒適的「膠囊床位」。


整座美術館三層樓分別輪播《無無眠》《西遊》和《秋日》三部短片,展覽手法呼應藝術思維—觀眾身體與影中人疊合,彼此不識的旅人們一起在美術館、乃至偌大的城市裡無眠、無無眠,直到第一班捷運呼嘯而起。一種既孤獨但不寂寞的安全感。

展覽預告 (3:15) 剪得很好,推薦給大家 😊
