Iklectik, London
A celebration of friendship, old and new, by the ageing queen of sweet nothing


Water Tiger Balm aims and claims to temporarily relieve minor existential aches, pains, and strains. It does so by warming the heart, as an analgesic.

There are some years in one’s life that demand special attention. This is one of them: 2022 is the year of the water tiger, and I am a water tiger, this conjunction only happens once in a lifetime. Ingenuity, friendship, community, and wild swimming is what got me that far. This is what I wish to celebrate with my precious and talented friends, old and new. And what a better place to do so than in Old Paradise Yard at Iklectik !
