  1. I was meeting friends at The Cobo House which is right next door.
    Since I was early, I went inside [The Artisan Room] to have a look.
    It was a chic and modern place for drinks and cakes.
    The cakes in display cabinet were so pretty.

    On the side they have high quality teas which you can smell.

    You can also buy the Designtific Scientific Coffee kit which has ground coffee in vials, drip-bags, and sugar in micro tubes. Ground coffee is sealed in each injection bottle for freshness and each bottle contains just the right amount for a cup of coffee.

    It was hot so I had the Longan Sparkling drink from the Hello Summer Series.
    IMG_20180813_153543.jpg

    The Longan Sparkling drink was so good as it wasn't too sweet and not everyday do you come across sparkling drinks that are longan based.

    Definitely coming back for cakes and tea.

  2. 又由陽光與海灘的越南峴港回來了!如果上月兩母子的峇厘是純嘆之旅,這次四大兩小的三代同堂出遊就是豪嘆之旅,因為我們入住了 Angsana Lăng Cô 最高等級的 Skypool Seaview 2 Bedroom Loft,嘆到兩兄妹完全不願離開~

     

     

    IMG_5535.JPG

     

    這次套票在本年3月29日經 Expedia 訂購,四大兩小香港快運 (HK Express) 機票(去程 HKG 16:20/DAD 17:20,回程 DAD 18:10/HKG 21:10)及三晚酒店連早餐及機場接送服務,作價$17,925.63,當是歐遊後慰勞兩老。不過訂了套票後,才發現持特區護照進入越南要 簽證,而且收費殊不便宜,經領事館申請單次入境已要HK$800(團體HK$650),而較便宜的落地簽證也要HK$480。經其他中介/旅行社會便宜一些,像我們經 Viet Nam Visa Line 先付 USD$40.32,抵達後再付每人USD USD$25 現金,即六人總共USD$190.32。所以出發前要先換好美元,同時要準備每位護照近照,以及填一份不知為何要查家庭成員的入境表,其實都幾麻煩!去越南另一弊端是航班選擇不多,像我們其實首天挺蝕的;不過香港飛峴港只需個半小時,比去星馬泰/日本/峇厘快很多,當地消費又相宜,如遇著抵玩套票也值得一去。

     

    IMG_4881.JPG

     

    今篇也講講 出發日:這是我們首次搭 HK Express,由 T2 check-in 並不意外,兩兄妹更開心在迪士尼商店選了禮物再出發;但搭了兩程無人機抵達228號閘口後,並無合照位,此外還要再搭一程差不多十分鐘的巴士去登機,登機後又熱到不行,要開始起飛時才啟動冷氣,都是 HK Express 的缺點。還幸有 Aeroflot 的經歷在先,覺得一切還算可接受;買了兩件三文治、兩件飯糰,又在機內買了一支水 (HK$22)、一支紅酒 (HK$45) 後,順利準時抵達峴港。

      

    IMG_4883.jpgIMG_4886.jpg

     

    在峴港機場辦理落地簽證,並沒預期中的多人,個人認為不需要多花 USD$15/位 去訂機場快速辦理服務 (Airport Fast-Track Service);不過我們這次帶了七年前馬爾代夫剩下來的舊版 $100美元,關員不肯收(但舊$20/$10美元可以照收),萬幸遇到香港人願意換錢,終於成功付款取得簽證入境。特別一提,越南簽證連同入/出境印會佔去護照一整跨頁,也為部分愛旅遊的朋友所詬病。

      

    IMG_4889.jpg

     

    IMG_5383.JPG

     

    抵達後,我們找不到 Banyan Tree / Angsana 的櫃台,也沒有人接機,連忙連上機場 WiFi 一查,慘了!原來接機服務需另外預約。其實越南交通不貴,在機場又有 HSBC 櫃台可以海外提款,取錢搭的士不是問題,但我們6個人不想分兩架的士啊... 所以著老公先到離境大堂的 Star Cafe / Big Bowl 買三份法包/麵包給大家醫肚,同時下載 Grab 來訂七人車,搭了一小時,終於順利用 VND 739K(約HK$250)抵達 Angsana。

     

    IMG_4937.jpg IMG_4936.jpg

     

    IMG_4935.jpg

     

    越南比香港慢一小時,抵達 Resort 時是當地時間9時,酒店人員馬上送上汽球給兩兄妹,同時又有每位手繩、welcome drink、毛巾及糖果,帶來非常不錯第一印象;之後由職員帶領抵達到房間,全部人更是欣喜若狂,因為複式設計的閣樓實在太大又太美了!

     

    IMG_4934.jpg

     

    當時天氣已全黑,我也懶得拍照,跑上投入天台泳池 Skypool 的懷抱中;而首晚晚餐,而由香港帶去的兩個合味道,加上隨便點的一些 Room Services 解決了,Day 2 再仔細介紹房間。

     

    IMG_4951.jpg

  3. 大家喜歡熊本嗎? 雖然今年年頭遊了福崗,但因為懶惰,加上熊本似乎未完全修葺完,所以最後都沒有去呢。這天,來到了割烹櫓杏,品嚐了由熊本直送的食材。

    untitled-209270100.jpg
    熊本阿蘇産 莫扎特蔬菜究極水沙律 
    先來的是沙律,這可不是一般的沙律,這是聽著莫扎特音樂長大的蔬菜,味道上更香甜;這份沙律沒有加入太多的調味,主要都是吃其鮮味,感覺十分清新健康呢。


    untitled-209270702.jpg
    天草直送 新鮮刺身盛合 
    這份刺身全都很新鮮,而且款式亦很多,這個價格,還有三大片拖羅,絕對是吃得多過的,喜歡刺身的朋友絕不可以錯過呢。

    untitled-209271103.jpg
    與平日吃的肉骨茶有點不一樣,味道上沒那樣的強烈,亦沒有那藥材的味道;味道上則同樣的鮮,當中的豚肉十分肥美呢。

    untitled-209271304.jpg
    阿蘇名店「花菱」名物 究極吉列和牛 
    吉列經常都是我喜歡的食物,這次來份牛而不是豬;炸得剛剛好,當中帶點粉紅色的,肉質軟腍又多汁,外層則是超香脆的。

    untitled-209271905.jpg

    untitled-209272006.jpg

    untitled-209272107.jpg

    untitled-209272608.jpg
    熊本黑毛和牛蒸籠料理 

    單是賣相,已經十分吸引呢;蒸籠有兩層,一層是蔬菜,一層是黑毛和牛;而配略的醬汁有自家製的芝麻醬和酸汁。先吃和牛,和牛肉質很嫩,味道亦鮮,沾上那自家製的芝麻醬,味道更加豐富呢。而另一層的蔬菜,款式多之餘,質素亦很棒,特別喜歡那豆腐,豆味十分濃郁,而且非常嫩滑,無論配芝麻醬,抑或酸汁都很美味呢。

    untitled-209272809.jpg
    即炸辛子蓮藕 
    蓮藕吃得多,但這樣的食法倒是第一次;蓮藕中間夾著wasabi,然後再炸香;wasabi的味道頗強勁的,但這樣的食法頗有趣的,可以一試。

    untitled-209273211.jpg
    櫓杏黑毛和牛壽司SASHI-TORO 
    三件壽司中,其中有一件是加上蠔葉的,當中有著鮮甜的蠔味,與和牛一同吃用的味道很特別,兩者都不會搶了對方的味道;而和牛本身的質素都很好,即場燒香,油脂全都滲進飯當中,充滿了牛香。

    untitled-209273512.jpg

    untitled-209273713.jpg

    最後,來了新鮮的蜜瓜,味道非常清甜又多汁,很喜歡。

    日本でも古くから愛されている日清「出前一丁」ですが、香港では日本以上に香港市民の味として親しまれています。香港では「チョッチンヤッテン」といいます。
    香港土産の定番として「出前一丁」とあがることがありますが、香港に行ったことがない人にとっては何のこっちゃ?ですよね。
    香港で「出前一丁」がどれだけ市民権を得ているのか、まとめてみますね。

    IMG_8350_R_R.jpg
    まず、スーパーに行けばこんなにたくさんの種類の味があります。日本で販売しているのは左上の赤いパッケージだけですよね?
    海鮮味、XO醤味といった香港らしいものに加え、日本のラーメンが大好きな香港人にウケるトンコツ味や醤油味など合計16種類近くあるんです。
    1つずつバラで購入できるので、お友達に面白いお土産としてもいいかな?

    P1272620_R.jpg
    香港式出前一丁を食べたければ茶餐廳へ!
    スパムやハム、目玉焼きをのせたシンプルなもの、トマトやサテで味付けたもの、鶏肉をのせた汁なしなどバリエーションがとにかく豊富!こんな調理法、日本にはないですよ~。初めて見たときはかるーくカルチャーショックでした(笑)。
    私は写真の『沙嗲牛肉』が好き。これはマカロニで食べても美味しいけど、やっぱ出前一丁だよねー。
    P1272613_R.jpg
    朝ごはんなどセットとして、置いてあることが多いです。
    出前一丁とパンとタマゴとハム、そして奶茶。香港人は朝からしっかり食べます!

    銅鑼灣で見つけたので思わずパシャリ。
    こちらのカフェバー『辦館 LOF10』では出前一丁使ったメニューがありますよ的な広告。オシャレなカフェバーにも浸透している出前一丁!すごいでしょ?


    今年は創業50周年ということで、こんなCMが流れています。

    子供の頃は「インスタントラーメンなんて身体に悪い!」と母に食べさせてもらえなかった反動か、大人になってから時々だけど無性に食べたくなる出前一丁。
    こんなにたくさん種類があるなら、香港で買ってきてもいいし、茶餐廳で食べてみたいな?と思いませんか?
    あー、食べたくなった。次の香港で絶対食べよ!

  5. Old-Quebec-City-11-150x150.jpg

    For me, it’s the quaint charm of a city’s historic area that always lures me in. Sure, I enjoy checking out modern buildings and big skyscrapers, but there’s something about the old part of a city that I prefer. The same held true when I spent a few days in Quebec City. While the outskirts were beautiful in their own right, it was Old Quebec City that I fell in love with. If you’ve never been before, I would say it’s like Montreal’s little sister: plenty to see, do, and eat, but on a much smaller scale.

    Rue Saint-Jean: The start of Old Quebec City

    Old-Quebec-City-1-1024x683.jpgPorte Saint-JeanOld-Quebec-City-2-1024x683.jpgRue Saint-Jean

    There are many roads around Old Quebec City that have been sectioned off as pedestrian only. If you’re heading into Old Quebec City from the west end, then you’ll likely be passing through Porte Saint-Jean (the old city walls that you can actually walk on top of). Just beyond the city wall is where you’ll find one of the main walking streets on Rue Saint-Jean.

    Old-Quebec-City-3-1024x683.jpgRue Saint-Jean (FYI, that ice cream shop on the right is amazing!)

    Although this is technically Old Quebec City, you’ll find quite a few modern stores here, like Aldo, David’s Tea, and eventually a McDonald’s. You’re also likely to see buskers performing along this street and just outside of the city wall. Because this is a more popular area, prices at restaurants are also quite a bit higher. We had dinner on our first night at Pub St. Alexandre, and a burger and fries was around $25. I’d suggest to avoid eating a meal here and just opt for drinks with a side of people-watching.

    Getting lost in Old Quebec City

    My best advice for exploring Old Quebec City is to just spend the day wandering around and getting lost among the cobblestone streets.

    Exploring the area close to Rue Dalhousie

    Old-Quebec-City-4-1024x683.jpgRue du Sault-au-MatelotOld-Quebec-City-5-1024x683.jpgRue Saint-PierreOld-Quebec-City-6-1024x683.jpgRoyal Battery/Batterie RoyalOld-Quebec-City-7-1024x683.jpgRue Sous le FortOld-Quebec-City-8-1024x683.jpgContinuing up Rue Sous le Fort

    Rue Dalhousie is a main street that runs along the water on the eastern part of Quebec City. A lot of the streets that come off Rue Dalhousie are pedestrian-only and are insanely cute. Although many are geared towards tourists, with various souvenir shops and the like, you’ll find many art galleries around Rue du Sault-au-Matelot if you’re interested in purchasing some local art.

    The streets surrounding Chateau Frontenac

    One of the most well-known landmarks of Quebec City is Chateau Frontenac. This historic hotel is a massive tourist attraction, so it’s no surprise that the streets surrounding Chateau Frontenac are filled with boutique shops, bistros with patio seating, and a whole lot of history.

    Old-Quebec-City-9-1024x683.jpgEscalier Casse-Cou (Breakneck Steps)

    These are the stairs you can take to get up to Chateau Frontenac. Or, just pop into one of the patios along the steps for a pint and some fantastic people-watching.

    Old-Quebec-City-10-1024x683.jpgPlace RoyaleThis picture was taken at Place Royal. There are shops surrounding the open area and at the far end you’ll see two busts: one of King Louis XIV and another of an Aboriginal individual. The two heads are staring directly at each other, making for an interesting and political interpretation. Old-Quebec-City-12-1024x683.jpgFresque des Québécois art mural

    This mural depicts the story of Quebec City, with its important historical figures and how the city was built. There’s one more mural at the bottom of Breakneck Steps that shows the progression of the waterfront neighbourhood of Cap-Blanc. Both are beautiful paintings and you can read about what is happening in each of them on a descriptive plaque.

    Old-Quebec-City-14-1024x683.jpgArtist Alley on Rue du Tresor

    The Artist Alley was a lot smaller than I had originally imagined, but the artwork is almost all original and the majority of it depicts different areas and important buildings in Quebec City. One thing I really liked was that, in most cases, the artist was selling his own work and was able to answer any questions you might have. Prices were around $10 for a small 4×7 original.

    My favourite area in Old Quebec City: Lower Town

    Old-Quebec-City-15-1024x683.jpgRue du Petit ChamplainOld-Quebec-City-16-683x1024.jpgRue du Cul de Sac

    I really loved the Lower Town of Old Quebec City. I found the narrow cobblestone streets and colourful buildings to be beautiful, and felt the area had a unique personality. Make sure you head down Rue du Cul de Sac to see the fun umbrellas hung up in the street. If you have time, pop into Q-de-Sac for a drink (they’re one of the few bars in the city I came across to offer happy hour) which overlooks the umbrellas.

  6. 英國雖然被稱為劣食王國,只要不吃英國菜都OK,其實在愛丁堡,米芝蓮推介都幾多,這間還有午市套餐,價錢亦平民,一於試試。

    IMG_0132.png

    舖頭地方淺窄,幾乎拉椅子就會撞到後面,不過因為我一個人,位置正好對準門口,後面一道牆完全安心不怕無情肘。

    IMG_0112.png

    午市時間較短,自然可以選擇菜式都較少。這午餐同時也是Pre Theatre餐,勉強可以當晚餐吧。

    IMG_0113.png

    西餐有麵包應該係慣例,店方有將多士烘熱,稍稍能將牛油融化,鬼佬整西餐的確比香港講究。

    IMG_0119.png

    Scottish egg係街頭見得多,但一隻炸蛋要三鎊以上絕不捨得,既然米芝蓮食府的starter中有得揀,如此花三四鎊倒是較心甘情願。雖然只得半隻,但街外蘇格蘭炸蛋一不知炸了多久,二不能做溏心(易有細菌),在此即點即做,米芝蓮加持,差價是要付的。

    外層為black pudding,可以譯作黑血腸,成份跟香腸類同但加了血,口感並非廚師腸般爽口,而係綿軟甚至帶黏,鬼佬好鍾意這種口感…除此之外仲有燕麥在內,其實有點像蘇格蘭另一名物haggis,味道都幾惹味。溏心蛋做得很精美,雖然蛋味較淡,其溏心蕩漾也令人春心蕩漾。加上青蘋果片和蘋果酒蛋黃醬,帶點酸甜確實醒胃。

    IMG_0124.png

    主菜是叫Pollock的魚,正式中文名不知道,肯定的是鱈魚一種。雖然係煎魚,但感覺竟似酒樓食飯時點的蒸魚,滑溜又清甜且不帶腥。多吃兩口,帶一點芹菜味的?!原來他們將一種叫根芹菜的植物,烤完再壓碎,和薯蓉做法相當接近。整個配搭頗為清淡,但又不會覺得食而無味,很適合辛勞過後的週末,來一個小清新。

    IMG_0128.png

    雖然食物味道和賣相俱佳,但這個午市套餐份量沒有很多,即使對女士而言似乎也不太夠,對我來說就更不用說了。

    大約兩年前,美心集團推出過「星潮尋味」系列,主打星洲菜和潮州菜,有幸一嚐,個人覺得很不錯。兩年後的今天,美心集團推出新的了「嚐味星洲」系列,以星馬菜為主,結合美心粵菜,為大家帶來另一次的新鮮感。

    IMG_2539.JPG

    文化中心上的映月樓一直都是我這一輩的婚宴勝地,差不多每一次來都是因為親朋飲宴聚會。這天美心集團在這裡安排了一場博客晚宴,我才知道映月樓在去年裝修後改名為翠韻軒,環境也變得更好更舒適。

    IMG_2570.JPG

    這一晚的「嚐味星洲」旅程,由一碟肉鬆黃金脆魚皮開始。其實炸魚皮從小已經吃到大,吃潮式魚蛋粉不時會點來吃。這一兩年新加坡兩大炸魚皮品牌進襲香港,配上咸蛋黃後更邪惡,令這香口小吃再一次變得大熱。美心這一次「嚐味星洲」當然少不了炸魚皮,除了咸蛋外更加入了肉鬆,味道更香!最重要是端上桌時還是暖的!真的停不了口!

    IMG_2582.JPGIMG_2583.JPG

    除了炸魚皮,另外兩款餐前小菜分別是大巴窯鹵豬腳芽籠鹵豬粉腸,前者膠質豐富,後者滷得入味,作為小吃,淺嚐不錯。

    IMG_2586.JPG

    新加坡另一名物必定是肉骨茶,這客鴛鴦蒜黑豚肉骨茶經過改量,特別加入了黑蒜,運用粵式火候,胡椒香仍在,但味道較溫和,也讓黑豚肉變得更軟腍入味。

    IMG_2621.JPG

    要數這晚的主角,必定是獅城甘香蟹。繼「星潮尋味」後,這一次「嚐味星洲」再次邀請當地資深名廚張偉忠師傅擔任客席大廚,他和美心中菜團隊以星洲醬料「甘香醬」入饌,推出了有別於新加坡馳名胡椒蟹的甘香蟹。

    IMG_2591.JPG

    甘香醬以不同海味及香料混合而成,包括咖喱葉、炸蝦米、蝦膏和各種香料,微辣中帶誘人芳香,惹味濃郁。配合肉質彈牙的菲律賓大肉蟹,每一口都鮮、香、辣俱全。如果人多吃飯,而大家都喜歡吃蟹,這道菜是必然推介。

    IMG_2602.JPG

    先吃蟹,再吃蝦,之前「星潮尋味」的麥皮金絲蝦,麥皮和蝦基本上是分開的,這一次「嚐味星洲」的新加坡麥皮蝦則再走多一步,把蛋汁金絲、麥皮、牛油和大蝦同炒,做到麥皮黏在蝦殼上,更加香脆惹味,和上一次相比更好吃。

    IMG_2609.JPG

    星洲菜怎能少了海南雞?個人覺得星洲海南雞的特色是酸辣醬、俗稱黑油的甜豉油和薑蓉三款醬料,「嚐味星洲」一應俱全,而且更有揉成圓球的雞飯粒!這種比乒乓球還大的雞飯,我上一次在聖淘沙的馬來西亞美食街嚐過,那時就在想如果能配一客海南雞就更好,現在終於如願以償了。

    IMG_2617.JPG

    經常在星馬菜聽到「亞蔘」,其實亞蔘就是中國人稱的羅望子。亞蔘帶有酸味,和咖哩同煮,既酸且辣,非常醒胃。這道亞蔘咖哩龍躉球配合彈牙龍躉肉,入味之餘不失龍躉鮮味,好吃。咖哩如不想浪費,配以之前的雞飯粒也是一絕。

    IMG_2623.JPG

    蝦麵可能是港人最熟悉的馬來西亞代表菜,美心的地道檳城蝦麵貫徹豐富材料和賣相,讓人一看已經食指大動。味道方面也非常不錯,充滿蝦味的濃郁湯底,和大蝦、五花腩和蛋都非常配合,個人覺得比海南雞更吸引。

    IMG_2624.JPG

    最後的甜品時間,榴槤凍布甸我雖無福消受,但身邊吃榴槤都齊聲讚好,原因是選用了貓山王作為材料!我不吃榴槤,但也嗅得出那強烈的榴槤香,真材實料這四個字應當之無愧吧。

    IMG_2629.JPG

    另一款特色甜品是斑蘭椰汁糕,送過來的時候原以為下層白色的是普通的椰汁糕,細看之下才發現原來是椰汁糯米!非常有新意,但始終去到尾聲,太飽已經吃不下糯米作甜品了。

    IMG_2636.JPG

    「嚐味星洲」供應期至9月14日,全線美心皇宮、全線翠園(尖沙咀、美心‧翠園除外)、翠韻軒、海逸軒、怡翠軒、八月居、八月花、八月軒、全線八月供應。一如以往,部份信用咭有折扣優惠,這一次使用匯豐信用咭惠顧「嚐味星洲」晚市自選菜式可享85折優惠。

  8. I didn't know that you could get crisps and cup noodles in India so when I found out, I managed to get some crisps from the local store.
    I got Magic Masala by Lay's.

    IMG_20180725_224241.jpg

    Inside, you get crinkle cut crisp and they were extremely spicy.
    They tasted like spring onion crisps with a fiery kick but after you get used to the spiciness, they were quite good.

    From the packet, it says they manufactured by Pepsico India Holdings.

  9. It’s been a while since I visited California Tower in Central. The list of restaurant seems to have changed a bit, for example – FUMI, was Ore-no Kappou as I remember. Yet it doesn’t change much in terms of the restaurant environment, still a very quiet and spacious area with counter seating.

    6-Course Summer Kaiseki
    晚夏 立夏之懷石

    We come over to try one of the latest summer kaiseki set menus. It is served per person along with a premium sake pairing package, inclusive of 5 seasonal sake selections from different prefectures.

    Started with a strong-tasted sake, it comes with a fancy piece of sesame tofu as appetizer, with fresh creamy sea urchin, prawn and crunchy shield. The tofu has an abnormal dense texture but a very nice sesame aftertaste.

    A smaller appetizer is simmered conger eel sushi, so rich in taste, succulent and tender on the inside, the rice beneath is as well flavoured perfectly.

    Followed by a beautifully presented sashimi platter, including fatty toro, thinly sliced flat head fish, my favourite is the sardine to be eaten with minced ginger and chopped scallions.

  10. 谈到高尔夫,我觉得自己是一个向前看的人 - 比如,我喜欢看到新规则的引进,高尔夫技术的革新,以及具有与众不同风格的新球员。

    但与此同时,高尔夫本身及其格式多年来都是相当保守的。在 新时代技术,资源和游戏个性一直在演变的同时,高尔夫运动从初始到现在,经过了几个世纪,似乎并没有太大改变。

    所以,当看到高尔夫世界欣然接受了像怡安挑战这样的创新理念时,的确令人耳目一新。 我稍后会对此进行评论,但我们先快速了解一下这个挑战究竟是什么。

    风险与回报

    最近,全球专业服务公司怡安宣布了PGALPGA的多年合作伙伴关系。将来每年的怡安挑战将覆盖整个常规赛季成为一场全新的全年竞赛。

    男女美巡赛和怡安已经从比赛日程中的不同球场选出了一些个人洞,而球员们则需要用他们认为最适合的策略打这些洞。 每个洞都呈现了不同的挑战。每个洞的风险回报挑战是与怡安的业务客户需要在董事会中做出的战略决策有明确的联系的。

    因为挑战赛的球洞覆盖2019赛季的男子美巡28站比赛以及女子美巡30站,球员们需要参加一定数量的比赛才有资格参加怡安挑战赛。每位有资格的选手将出现在全球排行榜上,其中PGALPGA的获胜者将各赢得100万美元的奖金。

    一个公平竞争的环境

    首先我认为刚刚讲述的这一点是一个非常受欢迎的发展。能看到职业运动员 - 无论是男性还是女性 -争夺平等的奖金,这是一个很大的进步。 职业体育奖金之间的性别差异 -高尔夫在内 - 已经持续了太长时间。我希望如此的平等代表了我们的将来。

    我觉得整个挑战赛德的概念也是很棒的。 之前的柯达挑战赛曾经尝试过类似的东西-- 能在PGA赛季当中的多个特色洞中获得最低累积分数的选手获得100万美元的奖金。 但这感觉真的与以往不同 - 一部分要归功于LPGA的加入。

    虽然战略挑战是市场策略(以及高尔夫球场和董事会决策过程之间仅仅存在的微弱联系),我认为这样的创新为赛季增添了额外的维度。 对我来说,高尔夫和许多体育运动一样,都有很多丰富多彩的故事。 通过编制了一个主要故事情节,个人竞争可能会提升到日常竞赛水准之上,所以这样的挑战可以给整个赛季再添加另一层生气。

    解决问题的挑战

    当然,能看到职业球员如何应对他们所面临的多种挑战对我来说也是很有吸引力的。

    高尔夫这个运动可以说是一个持续解决问题的练习。怡安和男女美巡赛实际上已经在这里将焦点从选手身上转移到了他们在每个球洞解决问题的能力。  即使某个选手输掉了锦标赛,但是说不定她非常漂亮地解决了一个困难的怡安风险回报挑战赛的问题。这可以帮助我们粉丝获得关于不同选手如何处理不同难题的新观点,我很期待。 我也非常希望香港公开赛(在香港高尔夫俱乐部举行)是比赛的一部分 - 这对于香港赛事的排名非常有帮助。

    至于这种战略合作伙伴关系是否代表了将来,其实未来已经在我们眼前了。当政府机构,广告商和活动组织者不断地在用新颖的方式来吸引新的观众,这种创新思维也在体育运动中出现越来越多(比如新兴的,短时间的板球形式)。

    高尔夫已经意识到新思维的必要性,这是令人鼓舞的。但这个历史悠久的运动是否会突破其传统的局限性还有待观察。

  12. I posted on my blog a while ago about my efforts to learn Mandarin. It’s really hard... but for me, it’s not just about the personal challenge of learning a new and complex language – it’s also about trying truly understand and get under the skin of a completely different culture. This is important for me because I think that learning a language is also a great way to gain an insight into the way that people think and talk about business. So, I was really pleased to be able to head to Beijing recently for a few weeks to try and give my Mandarin a boost – and I have to say it was a very productive and interesting visit.                  

    A tech revolution

    There are many fascinating cultural differences that strike you when you visit Beijing – but I was struck on this particular visit by one overriding phenomenon – the extent to which the Chinese have embraced the QR code. While you do often see QR codes being used in all sorts of settings in the rest of the world, I was struck by just how ubiquitous the technology has become in China. In Beijing, I saw it being used for everything from renting bicycles on the street to ordering your food in restaurants – with most people using WeChat to scan the code for information.

    WeChat now has around a billion users and could be described as the WhatsApp of China – and it allows not just QR code scanning but also payment using your phone and a linked bank account. Again, along with the QR code it was a piece of tech I’d heard of – but had no idea of the extent to which it is now being used in China.

    Multiple uses

    Here’s a quick example – my wife, her parents and I went to a restaurant that had no menus and only one waiter for more than ten tables. This unusual set up worked like a dream however – because diners simply needed to scan the QR code on the table to access the menu, place the order and then pay the bill. It’s a nice example of just how far the QR code has permeated almost every aspect of consumer life in Beijing – but it’s far from the only one.

    On the same trip, the first thing my father-in-law did was hand to me a mobile phone that had multiple apps loaded onto it that allowed for payment by QR code. After leaving the restaurant that evening, we stepped outside, found a yellow ofo bicycle, scanned the QR code, unlocked the bike and pedalled off. We then went to the San Yuan Li Market ( 三源里菜市场) to buy some fruit and veg, and used another app to scan a QR code which was taped onto a pole next to the fruit lady’s stand – once again, payment was immediate and hassle-free.

    Robert Weider - QR Bike

    Simple tech, but with many applications

    I could go on: everywhere, right across the city, in everything from tea shops to the local craft brewery, we were able to use QR codes to pay quickly and easily. Of course, you need to be settled in China to use them, as without a local credit card or bank account to top-up the payment the apps are useless – but the principle still stands that China has embraced this technology in multiple ways and has made it straightforward and simple to use.

    So, what did I learn from the experience of using QR codes in so many different ways in Beijing? Well, firstly that often the simplest solutions are often the best – the technology behind QR codes is not new, nor is it particularly complex. The impact, for me at least, was being in Beijing and seeing the extent to which it has been implemented across almost every type of transaction you can think of.

    And I think that, in many ways, that is the key to the success of any piece of technology: it has to be simple enough for people to be able to make it their own, to take it and shape it so that it works for them, whenever and wherever they need it. Because of the flexibility and adaptability of this simple technology to so many different environments – from lampposts to bikes to restaurant tables – China truly has become the land of the QR Code.

  13. Great professional French actors come exceptionally from France for the HK French Theater Festival to perform in:

    Politically correct //  Politiquement correct  --- English Subtitles --
    @ Sheung Wan Civic Center     March 8th   8:00 PM     Buy tickets www.ticketflap.com/hkftf3

    23rd of April 2017. Thunderclap for some: The far-right party made it to the second round of the presidential election. Love at first sight for others: Mado and Alexandre met just one hour before the results. They talked about everything but politics. Mado has always voted for the left-wing party. She doesn't know she just fell in love with an activist of the far-right party...

    2 nominations to the Moliere awards in 2017 in France: best author and best supporting actress !!

  14. This is my first time to go to D2 Place and my friend suggests me to try this Japanese restaurant because the decoration is quite special.

    Sushi Geikan really impress me because of the decoration! It uses lots of paper artworks to decorate and it became a ‘feature wall’. It must be a ‘check point’ for this restaurant ; P

    We have chosen to sit ‘Tatami’ this time, such a new experience for me as Hong Kong seldom have these type of restaurant which provide tatami to customers.

    We have ordered a sashimi platter, there will be total 7 types of sashimi, and all of them are fresh!! One of the sashimi (I forgot its name) looks like a flower, beautiful!

    We also ordered two Running Noodles as well because we have never tried that before. After ‘running’ and mixing with the noodle sauce, fantastic! The noodles was so fresh!!

    Probably will go next time with my family J

    大年初二吃御膳 @今助日本料理
    * * * * * * * * * *

    新年伊始,大年初二跟隨家人出外走一趟,到了荃灣的D.PARK,已N年沒有踏足這地,商場翻身成為兒童專區,內裡有專賣小朋友和年青人商品的商舖、小型電動私家車、中庭空間設遊樂區「中央公園」和「鯨魚花園」等都充滿歡樂氣氛,真的很適合家長們帶小朋友來"放電"呀。

    20170129_195250.jpg
    進座後店員很快就為我們擺放好餐具、熱茶及餐牌

    說明是大年初二,各處食店當然是繼續休息,未有營業啦,難得D.PARK內有數個選擇,不外出"冒險"了,最終決定在今助落腳,晚上8時需要取票輪候呀~ 大約15分鐘後我們進座,同行家人喜歡烏冬鍋物,尤其冬天食用最佳。

    20170129_195220.jpg
    顧客大多是情侶、夫婦或年青家庭

    20170129_200146.jpg

     切合商場以兒童為主題,這裡有兩款Kid's menu

    20170129_195421.jpg
    刺身、丼和壽司,以這個定價,筆者會光顧另外的魚生專門店

    20170129_195433.jpg

    望著餐牌經過一輪腦交戰,三客心水定食是讚岐風素食冷烏冬迷你北海飯御膳、讚岐風素食冷烏冬迷你蒲燒鰻魚飯御膳及讚岐風溫泉蛋撈烏冬天婦羅壽司御膳,有飯有烏冬,感覺好豐富呀。

    20170129_202353.jpg
    讚岐風素食冷烏冬迷你北海飯御膳 HK$140元

    每客御膳都包括味噌酒粕湯、茶碗蒸、刺身併盤,先來是讚岐風素食冷烏冬迷你北海飯御膳HK$140,天氣寒冷先來一碗味噌酒粕湯,先看湯色已知材料份量十足,味噌味加入暖胃酒粕,濃郁而不過鹹,內裡有豆腐皮、蒟蒻、蔥花和豆腐,喝完後全身暖和,好舒服。

    茶碗蒸內傳來陣陣香濃冬菇味道,更有雞肉,蛋夠香滑,個人感覺質地過稀,可以做得紮實一點,鹹度偏重,質素平平。

    20170129_202512.jpg

    迷你刺身分別是三文魚、鱆紅魚和大甜蝦,前兩者厚度適中,鱆紅魚新鮮軟滑,魚味不弱,三文魚無筋啖啖肥美油潤,甜蝦爽甜舔滑,蝦腦甘香。

    20170129_202444.jpg

    北海丼內容包括熟三文魚肉、爽甜生帶子粒和油美三文魚籽,顏色亮麗,味道豐富, 最重要還是材料夠新鮮吧,配合溫熱的珍珠米,太滋味幸福了!

    冷烏冬一盆份量很多,面頭撒滿紫菜,賣相精美,在旁附設專用汁料,按個人喜好隨意加入柚子皮、蔥花、薑蓉和白芝麻粒,湯汁味道即時變得精彩多層次,選用幼身烏冬,爽滑煙韌又掛汁。

    20170129_203141.jpg
    讚岐風素食冷烏冬迷你蒲燒鰻魚飯御膳 HK$140元

    20170129_203156.jpg

    另外一款讚岐風素食冷烏冬迷你蒲燒鰻魚飯御膳 HK$140元, 配菜大致與北海丼無異,只是主食轉成迷你鰻魚丼,鰻魚肉質爽彈,不算肥美,份量亦小,幸好飯粒圓潤分明,拌勻甘甜醬油,香氣四溢,挽回分數。

    20170129_202932.jpg
    讚岐風溫泉蛋撈烏冬天婦羅壽司御膳HK$135元

    20170129_202917.jpg

    讚岐風溫泉蛋撈烏冬天婦羅壽司御膳HK$135元,大顆溫泉蛋 最為精彩,烏冬選用較粗身的種類,同樣彈牙爽滑,面層鋪滿天婦羅,芝麻 和紫菜條,戳穿黏滑的蛋黃呈鮮橙色,蛋味濃郁,烏冬底部墊有醬油,拌勻所有食材同吃, 口感和味道都好豐富,美味程度是可以幻想到的。

    20170129_203400.jpg

    五件壽司分別是三文魚、吞拿魚、帶子、鱆紅魚和鰻魚,喜歡壽司飯緊緻度拿捏得好,飯粒醋味適中,當中帶子厚肉鮮甜,好吃!

    御膳還附有天婦羅拼盤,包括蝦兩隻, 體積很大,蝦肉爽彈,惟蝦鮮味欠奉,冬菇,小青椒和番薯片各一件,外層炸漿若可薄一點更好,沾些加入白蘿蔔蓉的天婦羅汁,幸福呀!

    20170129_210535.jpg

    20170129_202551.jpg
    最開心還是可以與家人至親一起過節、遊玩和分享啊?

    這兒食物價格偏高,定食或御膳大致由135元至170元,額外加一收費。欣賞是食材豐富新鮮,質素平穩,給予顧客「吃得飽」的滿足,服務是正常水平,店員會定時為客人添熱茶,加上和風格局夠光猛,食客大多是年青家庭或情侶,未見高談闊論的嘈雜感,餐桌與餐桌之間保留充足空間, 若再來這個商場,應該會再度光顧哦。

    *加一服務費

  18. The last birthday celebration for J was at Bibo where we had a tour of its art installations before our dinner! We had been to Bibo before when it first opened two years ago and decided to revisit after we had a great chat with the restaurant group's sommelier about champagne when we dined at The Ocean a few months ago. J wanted to try more kinds of champagne and his birthday coincided with the last week of the month which is when the Art Tours are offered, so we decided to sign up for it. The Art Tours occurs every last Thursday of the month at 6:30pm with no costs and it was definitely interesting to learn about the many different artists on display in the restaurant. It lasted about an hour and we walked all around the restaurant (even up to the private dining room) before making our way back to main dining for the start of our meal.

    Coincidentally, we sat at the same table as last time right by the Invader wall.

    The Bernardaud plates designed by Prune Nourry and JR are still a prominent part of the table decor at Bibo. 
    IMG_7257-1.jpg

    After J chatted with the sommelier Wallace on what he was looking for, Wallace recommended the Franck Bonville Prestige Avize Grand Cru Brut NV Blanc de Blancs ($1370) for us to try. He recommended the use of wine glass instead of the usual champagne flute to maximize the aroma and taste of the champagne. 
    IMG_7320-1.jpg

    Food-wise, Bibo offers a 5 course tasting menu for $1100 but we decided to order a la carte instead for more flexibility. After placing our orders, a refreshing amuse bouche with apricot jelly and almond mousse arrived along with bread and butter (one of which was a seaweed butter!).

    We were treated to this off-the-menu house smoked salmon which had a subtle smoky flavor and deliciously chewy texture to go with our champagne.

    For appetizers, J went for the Le Pate En Croute ($290) with homemade terrine, foie gras from Les Landes, pistachio and pork belly. As opposed to the soft pate spread, the pate is baked in a crust and is a very "French" dish that may not be for everyone (the people next to us only took a few bites).

    My Le Calamar ($250) with pan-fried squid, Hokkaido scallop, chorizo, bok choy and lemon dice was solid with very safe flavors but I thought the scallops could have been more raw while the dish could have used more acidity to make the tastes more interesting.

    Moving onto mains, the Le Bar ($480) with pan-fried sea bass, cherry tomatoes, white asparagus and Jerusalem artichoke puree was nicely executed but again the flavors were pretty safe and tasted as expected.

    I preferred the Le Homard Bleu Roti ($730) with roasted blue lobster and seaweed butter better which was served with seasonal vegetables, salted butter sauce and triple cooked fries as the flavors were on point and the portion can easily be shared between 2 people!

    Lastly, we had the La Fraise ($180) with fresh berries, yuzu cream, strawberry and ginger sauce, sesame tuiles and lychee sorbet to round off our meal and birthday celebration for J!

  19. Trip planning could be tiring and stressful especially for a family travelling with kids. For those in need for a short break and wanna save the hassle of planning a trip, it’s not necessary to fly off as Hong Kong has quite a few brilliant getaway choices to offer. Some popular ones are the rented houses and hotels in Cheung Chau, Mui Wo and Lamma Island, but rarely do people talk about Discovery Bay. 

    Here we came to Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong and enjoyed a night of staycation for the weekend. The hotel is located in Discovery Bay, a tranquil residential area on the Lantau Island, and is easily accessible by MTR with the free hotel shuttle bus pick-up at Sunny Bay station. It was a beautiful sunny day and when we stepped out from Sunny Bay station, we felt so relax as if we’re in another tropical country going on a sun’n beach trip! It’s so different from the “Hong Kong” we used to know!

    2

    Hotel shuttle bus stop is outside Sunny Bay station Exit A. It is available at around every 30 mins and only for hotel guests, so get your booking confirmation ready before getting on the bus. Alternatively, non-hotel guests may take public bus DB03P from Sunny Bay station as well.

    After a brief ride of 15-20mins, we arrived at the Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong!

    It's still plenty of time before standard check-in time, why not treating ourselves a feast to kickstart our getaway? Had a lunch buffet (HK$298/adult, HK$198/child) at the hotel's restaurant, Café bord de Mer & Lounge, which offers daily breakfast buffet, lunch & dinner buffets on every Friday - Sunday, and nightly dinner buffet throughout entire month of August. The current buffet is featuring dishes cooked with fruit ingredients and unlimited glasses of Red Bean Ice (紅荳冰) to beat the summer heat!

    Had some soothing Cantonese soup to wash away inner heat.

    17

    A wide range of colourful sweet treats is available for the sweet tooth and the little ones. Look at that marshmallow cake, rainbow cake and those mini mousse cones! Kids must love them all!

    Self-made Affogato with the Haagen-dazs ice-cream & freshly brewed coffee from the coffee machine. Yum~

    Portuguese egg tarts were also available!!

    21

    Restaurant interior filled with plenty sunlight.

    27

    Time to get our room after we're done with the lunch buffet. It was an Ocean Front Panoramic View Room on high floor. Wow wow wow!!! We were so astonished by the 180 degrees ocean view of South China Sea and the spacious room!! It's a genuine escape from the city life while falling asleep in a king-sized bed with such an ocean view!

    Hotel room with contemporary design in a tone of ocean blue.

    We could see some Discovery Bay residential buildings from afar as well as the hotel's White Chapel and European tall ship The Bounty, which were just downstairs.

    34

    35

    Enjoyed stunning ocean view even in the bath! 

    36

    37

    38

    A little mention about the welcome basket that we really appreciated. It's not ordinary welcome fruits but a basket full of sweet & savoury snacks! Best for kids and adults who are not on diet! 

    39

    "You've arrived at another side of Hong Kong" printed on the key card sleeve, couldn't agree more.

    40

    Let's get out and explore the hotel and places nearby. The hotel offers a full range of recreational facilities for all ages. Spacious gym room with essential equipments for the sporty ones, playroom for family guests with kids, and the leisure hotel's must-have, swimming pool!

    41

    45

    If you're kind of adventurous, drop by the recreation counter in the lobby to rent a bike and cycling around the neighbourhood.

    46

    The hotel is also renowned for its one-of-a-kind wedding venue with the sleek triangle White Chapel and the exquisite European tall ship The Bounty that are hardly found elsewhere in Hong Kong. The ship and the blue sky resembled a beautiful and classic scene like the picture we used to see on puzzles and postcard!

    These are all Ocean Front Panoramic View Rooms located.

    50

    As the hotel is situated in a residential community, there are shops, restaurants and a supermarket just around the corner so don't panic if you forgot to bring something essential for your stay. Only if you remember to bring enough cash, haha...

    51

    52

    53

    Same stunning ocean view can also be viewed from the town square right beside the hotel.

    54

    It's dinner time when the sun went down. We again visited the Café bord de Mer & Lounge for the dinner buffet (HK$338/adult, HK$198/child) featuring BBQ skewers. 

    59

    61

    62

    Different sauces to season the skewers to your liking.

    Stayed awhile at the restaurant even we've finished our dinner just for the 9pm fireworks at Disneyland. Yes, we could see a little fireworks from outside the restaurant!

    67

    Hotel lobby at night. When everyone has gone back to room, it shows another undisturbed charm.

    69

    68

    Good morning world!! Life would be perfect if we could wake up with such a breathtaking ocean view everyday... 

    70

    Breakfast buffet is always the best way to start a day and that's why we usually prefer to book accommodation with breakfast buffet included. :D The restaurant has a good spread of breakfast buffet with both Oriental and Western dishes. 

    You may DIY a set of Hong Kong styled breakie with congee, stir-fried noodles, a few pieces of Siu Mai and a Cha Siu Bao.

    71

    Plus a bowl of made-to-order soup noodle from the noodle station. There are choices of noodle like rice vermicelli, egg noodle and silver needle noodle (銀針粉) to choose from, and choices of ingredients like different types of mushroom, veggie, fish/beef/cuttlefish balls, and bean curd to custom make your perfect soup noodle. 

    73

    74

    And/Or have a set of American or Continental breakfast with eggs, sausages, hash brown, different kinds of bread and pancakes.

    72

    75

    I've never seen pancakes made by such a pancake machine!! What a great idea for the restaurant to provide fresh hot pancake without employing an extra staff at a pancake station! Haha... 

    76

    A breakfast could never be perfect (and not healthy enough) without fruits. And the satisfying breakfast put a beautiful end to our staycation.

    77

    Last but not least, don't forget to book your seats 1 day before check-out for the free hotel shuttle bus bringing you back to the Sunny Bay station as the buses around check-out time are always full! Huge thanks to all friendly staff in the hotel who have taken care of us and it was truly a great place to unwind ourselves. If you're interested in taking a break or just spending a day with scrumptious buffet at Auberge Discovery Bay Hong Kong, take a look at their website where you will find different promotions and room packages on offer: http://www.aubergediscoverybay.com

  21. While we stepped into the new page of 2016, I believe it was still worthwhile to do a little throw-back to one of the biggest musical event last year by Hennessy because it's coming along this year!

    Since its founding in 1765, Hennessy has been driven to create the world's best cognacs. In this continuing quest for excellence, seven generations of the Fillioux family have been Master Blenders at Hennessy, thereby ensuring the transmission of this precious savoir-faire from one generation to another.

    Hennessy was celebrating its 250th anniversary celebration last year. Despite plans to celebrate this anniversary, its annual music-fest “Hennessy Artistry” – an innovative musical platform- was set to be a more unique celebration of the relationship between Music and the Hennessy brand as it took a new turn to re-emphasize Hennessy’s love for music hence, the theme for last year’s celebration; “Hennessy loves Music”. The event was star-studded and attended by Peter Okoye, Falz, Toni Tones, Ehiz, DJ Lambo, Saeon, Emmanuel Ikubese and more.

    The creation of Hennessy Artistry Halo is based on the philosophy of “The Global Art of Mixing”; essentially the seamless blending of East & West. This is exemplified not only through the varied genres of music and the synthesis of top talents and emerging artistes.

    Previous Hennessy Artistry headliners include Jesse Jagz, Nneka, Cobhams, Kas, Jude “MI” Abaga, Banky W, Sir Shina Peters, Tiwa Savage, Ice Prince, El Dee, Bez, Wizkid, 2Face and other notable Nigerian acts.

    Hennessy Artistry is an innovative musical platform, launched worldwide by Hennessy in 2006 to celebrate the vibrant multiculturalism of different genres.
