Originated in Hong Kong with the creative vision away ahead of its time in the early 90s, California Red Karaoke Box has infused itself as one of the unique household name in Hong Kong.
The concept of combining karaoke, restaurants, watching latest music videos in individual rooms for family alike, received positive feedback as most of the karaoke outlets. Red Box isn’t just great for singing, one can use the facilities to organize leisure and social activities with extraordinary twist. Rest assured that all Red Box staffs are well trained and ready to serve.
I had always been under the impression that Red Box Karaoke is one very expensive place to go for karaoke, but I was wrong. Red Box has all these ongoing promotions that are too good to be true that even if you’re not a karaoke buff you’d want to avail of them. Like lunch hour during weekdays, you get to eat-all-you-can, drink-all-you-can, and sing-all-you-can from 12 noon to 3pm. Lunch consists of a buffet with salads, soup, rice, pasta, around 3 viands, and dessert. Bottomless iced tea is served with lunch. The food is average but the whole experience was great! The place was surprisingly packed (all the ground floor rooms were occupied by 12:30pm and they open 12noon). The service and food there is great at a reasonable price. The sound system is good compared to the other competitors.
It was a well-spent afternoon and we’d gladly do it again some time.

Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.

Last year, Armin Amirian talked to Lomography about his motivations as an artist, his inspiration for his work and the difficulty of pursuing his passion in the society he belongs to. With that came a collection of images that reflected the concerns he and his fellow countrymen are faced with every day. The Iran-based photographer returns with insight on his new body of work.
Some photographers have an instinct for the unique. Whereas others aim to fashion the ordinary into a singular picture, these hunters are obsessed with what cannot be found elsewhere. They prize an exclusive scoop on architectural patterns, artisan quirks, and objects that stick out of an everyday scene. And when the photographers find them, they will twist and turn to get the most flattering angle. Only right for curiosities that beg to be shared.
