The Drift of Art and Music Between Islands

While back home in Singapore over Christmas and New Year’s, I visited Ricks Ang and April Lee at their new office in the laid-back, old-world district of Katong. Ricks and April run a small design studio and record label called Kitchen out of a refurbished one-storey brick residence with wooden rafters and bits of corrugated tin roof. The new Kitchen is literally next door to Fei Fei Wanton Mee, possibly the most famous dumpling noodle stall on the entire island (it’s all about the sauce, apparently).
