Siku comes to Beijing - My first own business in China

The last few weeks I have been planning an own business for a totally new product to the Chinese market. And here it finally is! It's called SIKU Vodka which is made out of 60.000 year old ice in Greenland and 5 times distilled rye vodka, this makes it one of the highest quality vodkas in the world, not to mention unique. And unique and high en products sell well here! 

Since I work with/in nightclubs in Beijing it was easy to talk them into having an opening party for us. Now we just have to promote this event like crazy and make it a success! There will be loads of performances and we will basically turn the club into an ice cave! Anybody who is in Beijing, let me know if your coming and I'll arrange a VIP night for u :)  

And after this there will be an Siku Ice Vodka event EVERY week in Beijing! All hotels, clubs, bars and karaoke places will soon be able to find their new favourite drink :)

On Chinese TV, Feicheng Wurao

Big in Japan, no wait, big in China! Last week I was on Chinas most popular TV shows with about 80 million viewers. I did an interview for one of m friend who took a part in a dating show. The show is called "Feicheng Wurao 非诚勿扰“. Had my phone filled with messages next day that I SAW YOU ON TV! Last year this time I made my own TV show for Finnish TV called Mitt Nya Land and this year Chinese TV. Can't say that I've gotten used to cameras yet though...

Yen Halloween Party!

It's time for the YEN Halloween party again in 798! For the last 4 years I've always been Spider Man but not this year! Pre-game party in Wangjing with the "gang" and after that to Yen. Was an awesome night!

Everybody getting their paints done
 Fester, The Mummy, Slash and the kitty from Alice in Wonderland Halloween version
 John Rambo, ready to kick some ass
 And here we are
 Yen party @ VIP section
 And my final costume turned out like this
 Also found the Turtles!
798 is an old weapons factory in Beijing, it's now turned into rave parties for special events like the Yen a few times every year. 
 So many awesome costumes every year at this party!

Anping - Wire Mesh Expo

One of those Expos where the local government is having an expo and they want foreigners to join. In return they pay all our transport, food, hotel etc for us to show up. There is a lot of media and pictures are taken, it looks GOOD if there are a lot of people attending from around the world. I been to 3 of these expos before and must say this was the worse place in China I have visited so far. Anping is like...well there is nothing here. Just low and worn out buildings, dust, nothing to see...Who would ever want to live in a place like this??? 

Beijing - Anping by bus about 3 hours
View from the, great. 
 Room was better on the inside than outside
 When I came into the cantina and got this plate the first thing I thought of was....prison

 Buffe was still ok

 The VIP going to explore more about wire mesh products
 Loads of people came to my surprise 
 TV was also there
 Opening ceremony, which is the lamest and most boring thing in China, they start by saying "we welcome all the leaders and thank them" then they call out each leaders name and everybody gives a short applause to each one of them...this took about 2 hours to go through all these people standing here. I wonder if they enjoy it?

 Main gate
 To be honest, this map was pretty much the coolest thing I saw on this expo
 Wire mesh "museum"
 When walking here there were 40 people or more attacking me, giving me name-cards and brochures and asking for my card. Some of them just came, gave their card and left without saying a word. Great way of doing business!!
 Barb wire and other wire products

 For some reason every building in Anping was covered with massive signs full of texts, EVERYWHERE

 Who ever was running this hotel had no taste what so ever....and just because they had clocks from all over the world by the reception does NOT mean they were even a bit international
 dirty dirty dirty ceiling 
 Stopped by for buying water and snacks, they really don't have much to choose from
 This truck was PACKED! Wonder how the boxes don't fall
specially this one to the right, packing done RIGHT

Happy Birthday Ted!

Had a surprise party for Ted at his place, we were all hiding upstairs. After Ted came home we all started walking downstairs one by one. Had ordered Hot Pot home delivery and Elva had prepared an awesome custom made cake with his bike and helmet. Happy 28th birthday and have fun the incoming months in Vietnam!

One of my all time favorite DJ's/Music producers came to Beijing to play! And it was in the club I am currently working in, great gig, free drinks and free entrance! How could it get any better? The night was Epic, it was the best club night I have had in Beijing in all these years. 

Warm up for the main show first
