I had a week long layover in Hawaii last year. Bummer right? I didn't really set out to make a time lapse clip out of the "vacation", but it just sort of happened.
These are a few of the clips from the trip accompanied by some good music. I hope you enjoy!

V Creative Agency - Articles: How Much Does it Takes to Be A Chinese VIP?

V Creative Agency - Articles: How Much Does it Takes to Be A Chinese VIP?: It comes as no surprise that to luxury brands, Chinese VIPs are those that spend the most. Reports on just how much vary. McKinsey reports that VIPs drop at least 150,000 renminbi a year on luxury goods. Accounts from real VIPs suggest that number is much higher. Wall Street Journal reporter Laurie Burkitt recently interviewed a young woman in Beijing who said she spent about 20,000 renminbi on luxury products every one or two months. “She also said that in order to become a VIP in some instances you need to spend at least that much. And at Hermes, you need to spend a whole lot more, buying about five or six limited edition bags per year,” Burkitt reported. And the fact that the VIPs keep spending mean that brands have worthwhile incentives. Few retailers publicly offer details about everything a VIP receives in an attempt to preserve the uniqueness of the experience for those paying for it. “They want this to be an exclusive, extravagant experience for a VIP to make them feel really special and provide some sort of impression on them so they will go home and tweet about it on Weibo, which is very similar to Twitter, and tell all their friends, so that other VIPs will go in and do just the same – buy a lot of products and go back and tell their friends,” said Burkitt.

Bio:
Nakadia - Asia's rising star of the global DJ community has played over 800 gigs across 54 countries and made herself a name as one of the very few globally successful females in electronic music. But still, due to her Thai origin she is still very much like a raw diamond that has yet to be discovered. Nakadia stands for highest quality music and her performances are filled with life, joy and excitement. This – in combination with the musical quality and her technical skills – is what makes Nakadia so popular with all who have witnessed her on stage. She celebrates her music rather than just playing records. Since the beginning of 2012 Nakadia is releasing music on a regular basis and her first tracks already made a big impact and boosting her career to the next level. The future looks very bright for this young Asian artist.

BANGKOK, Thailand - Often times Thailand has been accused of over using the term "hub" in describing positioning of its burgeoning industrial growth. But now, thanks to pro-active marketing on the part of the Department of Tourism, Thailand Film Office (Thailand's Film Commission) the Kingdom is in the midst of a foreign production boom.
With the lure of high-production values, skilled crew, beautiful locations, and low costs, Bangkok is blossoming into an outsourcing hub for foreign filmmakers - it has become the center of foreign movie production in Southeast Asia.
For 2011, 606 foreign productions where produced from 46 different countries generating US$39.2 million. Countries as diverse as Chile (a documentary), Germany (8 documentaries, 4 ads, and 6 TV programs), and Nepal (1 feature), all used locations in various parts of the country.

V Creative Agency - Articles: Chinese Carmaker Takes Stake in Spyker, Plans For A 0,000 Luxury SUV

Spyker


Click to Read
Car and Driver reports that both Spyker and Youngman will also create a company called Spyker Phoenix to produce a line of luxury cars using the Phoenix technology and platform – a project Saab had been working on before the brand collapsed last year. These cars are expected to be manufactured in China.

While Spyker enters into these plans with Youngman, it is also suing Saab GM for $3 billion in relation to the brand’s demise. Spyker itself has little to bring to a new venture, and as Youngman has outsourced vehicle development to Lotus in the past, the experts are wondering just how this collaboration will work out.
