    私が香港好きになったきっかけは香港映画。
    最近は日本で上映されるものも少ないですが、気になっていた香港映画の日本上映が決まったので一足お先に鑑賞して来ました。

    映画【誰がための日々(一念無明/Mad World)】は2016年に香港で上映された映画です。
    親の介護から鬱病になった青年の姿を描く作品。実際に起きた事件を元に製作されたたそうですが、この作品で香港金像奨では最優秀助演男優賞、最優秀助演女優賞、最優秀新人監督賞を。台湾金像奨で最優秀助演女優賞、最優秀新人監督賞を、第12回大阪アジアン映画祭でもグランプリを獲得したという話題の作品です。

    <あらすじ>
    婚約者のジェニーと家を買い、結婚をして、家族を作る、そんな将来設計を考えていたトンには寝たきりの母親がいた。弟はアメリカに永住し、父はお金を入れるだけで家には寄り付くことはなかった。自身の体が思うようにならない苛立ちからトンに冷たく当たる母。それでも母を施設に入れたくなかったトンは会社を辞め、自宅で一人母の介護にあたっていた。しかしぎりぎりの状況の中、トンはある事件により母をなくしてしまう。ショックのあまり思い鬱病を患ったトンは精神病院に入院。1年間の治療を経て退院したトンは父と2人、狭いアパートでの生活をスタートさせる。 
    (映画com.より引用)

    香港には介護問題を取り上げた素晴らしい映画があり、「女人、四十」「桃さんのしあわせ」は私も大好きな映画ですが、今回はそんな介護をする家族側にスポットを当てた作品でした。
    実は私も今年から義父母が介護ケアが必要となり、夫と共に悩むこともストレスを感じることも多々ある日々を過ごしています。とても他人事とは思えずに食い入るように鑑賞しました。
    介護問題は香港だけではなく、日本でも大きなテーマだと思います。
    親を施設に入れるのは罪悪感がある。しかしながら自分たちの生活もあるので完璧な世話は行えない。今は行政のサポートも多いので私たちはそれに頼りながら自分たちも共倒れしないように、手を抜けるところは抜きながらケアしています。
    私はトンのように仕事を辞めてまで介護できるだろうか・・・考えてしまいました。

    主役のトンを演じるのは大好きな俳優のショーン・ユー。デビュー作の『インファナル・アフェア』以降、どんどんと良い俳優になっていると思います。
    彼のインスタをフォローしているのですが、カッコいいんだな~。しかしながら、この作品のショーンはどこか垢抜けない感じの心に闇のあるトンを見事に演じていました。
    素晴らしい俳優に成長したなぁ。

    tagatamenohibi_201811_01_fixw_640_hq.jpg
    (映画ナタリーサイトより引用)
    そんなトンの父親を演じるのが、これまた私の大好きなエリック・ツァン。
    今まで家族と向き合ってこなかった父は退院したトンを引き取って小さな部屋で二人で暮らします。
    親子なのに理解しあえないもどかしさを上手に演じています。息子を理解したいと思い精神病患者の家族会に参加するあたり、目に涙が浮かびました。
    実はこの作品、制作費が3,000万円と低予算ながら、この脚本を読んだショーンとエリックは二つ返事で出演を快諾したのだそうです。

    彼らが暮らすアパートは1フラットを1部屋ずつ分けたような共同生活のようなスペース。隣の部屋には香港IDのない母親と大陸IDのない息子が住んでいたり、私がブログで紹介している楽しい魅力的な香港の裏にある香港の現実が描かれています。
    オシャレなレストランや煌びやかな観光地は撮影では一切使われていません。
    撮影舞台となった住宅はあの辺かな?と思うと心が締め付けられるような感じ。
    でもそうした香港の現実も観てほしいと思います。

    自分の介護生活とダブらせて鑑賞してしまいましたが、香港が好きな皆様に是非観てほしい、こういう香港も知って欲しいなと思う作品でした。
    公開は2019年2月2日より。新宿K'sシネマ他、全国でも順次上映されるそうです。

  2. 臨近聖誕節,自然是西餐當道;然而「做冬大過年」,不久後就是中國人非常看重的冬至,也要必要介紹一下中菜。早前到訪香港海洋公園萬豪酒店內 Prohibition 扒房酒吧,印象很好,本週初與食友再訪隔壁的 南海小館,同樣是高素出品,而且價錢更親民!

     

    IMG_6535.JPG

     

    香港海洋公園萬豪酒店除了離海洋公園超近,與港鐵站也只隔了數分鐘腳程,非常方便易達。而整間酒店貫徹樂園的海洋氣息,除了酒店內外不少的海洋動物佈置,也與樂園一樣,全線餐廳採用「可持續發展」的環保海鮮為食材,十分值得支持。

     

     

    f24ffaff2734ee5b0dfaacfa1906aa84.jpg

     

    位於酒店B區地舖的 南海小館,以傳統經典粵菜及順德菜作招徠,在歡樂舒適的氣氛為食客帶來純正的廣東味道。店內除了環境舒適優美,食客亦可以透過開放式廚房,欣賞廚師們大顯身手,一覽各道廣東菜的製作過程呢。

     

    e4e1ad9b1ceb8b805c0b4e9b60f7f3b2.jpg

     

    e612cf01631418f8c4263a50b0763fbc.jpg

     

    最後一張環境照片是臨走時拍的,早一點抵達餐廳食客不少,尤其臨近冬至,一定要預早訂位!焦點回到吃,首先上檯是 涼拌魚皮 ($128),已經灼熟的魚皮仍不失鮮滑,口感彈牙,再加上微辛刺激的花椒油,相當的醒胃!

     

    207bf4b2c492a0fce448bc006b0b5802.jpg

     

    接著來到 蜜味叉燒 ($168),已經有人忍不住「食大個胃」!沒辦法,這碟叉燒肥瘦均勻,富有肉汁又香蜜迷人,邊位更略帶微焦,正是最靚仔的出品,也難怪食友忍不住點來「靚仔」(白飯) 撈之。

     

    cdc720f5582f0327ea35817eb99a30af.jpg

     

    6177857c7619208584174ba732e9ecfa.jpg

     

    我還是乖乖的飲湯吧,同樣是暖身,卡路里可以減少一半以上呢。這晚嚐了 杏汁菜膽燉白肺 ($128),鮮濃的杏香證明這是鮮磨無誤,鮮甜湯膽加上清甜菜膽,鮮上加上兼溫婉滑溜,除了暖熱肚腹,也是嘴巴及舌頭的一大享受啊! 

     

    aabbacdc53d8f16ab549ee4dae378673.jpg

     

    進入主菜前還忍不住加碼點了 均安煎魚餅 ($128 / 六件),煎至金黃色的魚餅不會油膩、甘香爽滑,魚肉富有彈性,最妙是帶有淡淡陳皮香氣,神來之筆也。

     

    2a3577d41e9ae3a8a04d4cebc677061c.jpg

     

    開始主菜環節,首先是 豉油皇乾煎羅氏蝦 ($298)。蝦的種類超多,其中羅氏蝦是一款淡水長臂大蝦,當然上檯前已經處理掉長長的胳膊。薄脆蝦殼下,蝦肉嫩甜入味,而巨大的蝦頭更帶了大量甘香豐腴的蝦膏,令人萬分回味!

     

    c07d57d96aee19707b3b55fa11d46742.jpg

     

    順德菜從來很好下飯,接著的 順德家鄉碌鵝 ($288),除了鵝皮爽滑可口、鵝肉肉嫩入味,那濃濃的醬汁也萬分吸引,好想撈飯的!特別一提,墊底有不少吸飽鵝油及醬汁的薑粒,好此物者萬不要錯過。

     

    5ff33df74212d50e6c4a2487262ceff2.jpg

     

    美食繼續來,接著是順德馳名的貴價河鮮 煎焗西江魽魚 ($198)。這尾魽魚個子不小,煎得香口不油、肉爽皮脆,沒有泥腥味兼富有醬油咸香,滋味讓人牽掛。

     

    b71255146965546d391ee16cccbc9a34.jpg

     

    但最勾魂奪魄的,還是要數 順德煎腩排 ($218):據說300斤的豬內只有4斤腩排,相當珍貴,大廚又巧妙為腩排上粉(沾米粉)後再香煎,成品肉汁豐盈、酥香可口,令人一試傾心、深刻難忘;我多想以你腩化我腩,獨霸這碟腩排!單單為了它,絕對絕對要重來。

     

    fe22f47c930f12463e58266f588c3697.jpg

     

    正正因為腩排太出色,我們又追加一份 蝦醬蒸五花腩 ($148);薄切的五花腩片豐腴富彈性,帶有香濃蝦醬、咸香豆醬以及一絲絲酒香,超級好下飯,以你腩化我腩的行動非常成功。

     

    3624474efc272e626c4fdce3536ba881.jpg

     

    8952d71ef87c23ff9147773f2e54f8d1.jpg

     

    脂肪無邊,回頭是岸啊!一開始選擇投靠香口惹味的 小炒皇,不過它也未能平衡罪惡及油膩感,所以要轉投 魚滑浸豆苗 ($288) 懷抱。鮮甜的魚湯非常高分,將清嫩當造的豆苗也襯托得無比美味,反而鯪魚肉可有可無呢~

     

    baf342e8f3d85d5e6571165addd45ebd.jpg

     

    我一早吃飽,但 香蔥叉燒粒炒飯 ($168) 用上美味叉燒,真心香口吸引,不吃不吃還須吃,又是吃光了。所以當食友還要挑戰 蝦籽鮑汁撈粗 ($168) 時,不好意思要跳過了!

     

    39ce951d0a78ef33c7fcf8d80bc9f4ef.jpg

     

    90d4ac981189d46e7d92e59c102879d4.jpg

     

    尚有一絲甜品空隙,首先分給清甜不過膩、外脆內煙韌的高分之作 紅豆綠茶薄罉四件 ($58),最後超額吃下滑溜低甜的 薑汁燉奶 ($58) 後,也是時間摸摸圓又滿的肚皮離開。

     

    d80fbc9333f3e5dc5f8b15ca1c20f4a0.jpg

     

    非常邪惡又滿足的一頓,還要不要再來?答案,絕對是肯定的:YES!(沒救了......)

  3. La Famille is a famous for its soft and dreamy Chiffon cakes.

    055HKR0C4B85ABEA040038l.jpg

    I remember going to their cozy joint in Tai Hang.
    They now have more to offer including these pretty jelly cakes with flowers in it.

    055HKS862B449857C40BD5l.jpg

    For Christmas, they have launched three cakes for Christmas.

    055HKW167C211E13BE8E35l.jpg

    Each Christmas cake is quite different, personally I prefer something simple so chose the white one which has the signature chiffon cake inside smothered in delicious Hokkaido cream with fresh strawberries.
    055HKX36A75C0CFE71B219l.jpg

    This cake will be available from the 17th but as it was my friends birthday they were able to make this cake.
    The taste was as good as expected with the pairing of fluffy chiffon and dreamy cream.

  5. suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-12-150x150.

    I’m always on the hunt for a great hike that offers fantastic views of Hong Kong. I had heard about Suicide Cliff and after seeing some photos on social media, I knew I had to check it out for myself. Suicide Cliff Hike is an easy hike to get to, offers insane views of the city, and really isn’t that difficult.

    There are a few different ways to start the Suicide Cliff Hike. We chose to take the longer route because I didn’t want to hurt myself trying to climb up an incredibly steep hill (when we made it to the actual cliff, we saw people who had just climbed up it. They said it was crazy and that there was no way they would recommend it). We also wanted to go on a longer hike, so it just made sense to make a day out of it.

    Starting Point of the Suicide Cliff Hike Kong Kong

    Head to City One MTR Station and go out Exit D. Turn left and head down Chap Wai Kon Street – cross the street at the first crosswalk so you’re on the other side. Alternately: if you’re a bit pressed for time and/or want to avoid a relatively boring 30 minute walk to the start of the hike, take a taxi to the Wong Tai Nau Bus Terminus

    City One MTR to Wong Tai Nau Bus Terminus

    Continue walking down Chap Wai Kon Street until you reach Siu Lek Yuen Road. Turn right and keep going. After about 5 minutes, you’ll walk under an underpass. Turn left when you exit the underpass and continue walking up along Siu Lek Yuen Road. Eventually, you’ll see the Wong Tai Nau Bus Terminus on your left. Cross the street shortly after the terminus – you’ll see a set of stairs leading up. This is where the hike starts.

    Wong Tai Nau Bus Terminus to Kowloon Peak Viewing Point

    After you take the stairs up, head along the path to your left. You’ll pass a building on your left and will eventually reach the end of the path. Go right and walk down the road.

    suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-1-1024x768.

    After a few minutes, you will veer left and head into a more forested area with a walking path. Shortly after, you’ll again come to a crossroads with a map at the end of the stairs. At this point, turn right and continue along the path – you’ll now be walking along a rough stone path in the forest.

    suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-3-1024x768.

    suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-2-1024x768.

    After about 30 minutes, you’ll begin to see the path marked as “Maclehose Trail” – follow that and shortly after you’ll come up out of the forested area and onto a clear path on top of the mountain. You’ll walk along this path for a little while, but will dip back into the mountain and under some shade. You’ll also pass by a few ‘clearings’ that look similar to the second photo above. Just go through them and keep following the path.

    suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-4-1024x768. suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-5-1024x768.

    Afterwards, you’ll find yourself walking along an actual road. This road will take you directly to the Kowloon Peak Viewing Point. At the lookout area, you’ll see a gazebo. There are stairs leading up just behind the gazebo – it’s a short climb up to another view point (see second photo above). When you’re ready to move on, head along the path behind the gazebo that goes down.

    Kowloon Peak to Suicide Cliff

    suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-6-768x1024. suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-7-1024x768.

    From here, simply follow the path until you can’t go any further. You’ll be hiking up and down a few mountains and will eventually come to a rock on your right with a great vantage point of the city – perfect for a quick photo before continuing on.

    suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-9-1024x768.

    suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-8-1024x768.

    The peaks will become much smaller and you’ll be able to see a television and radio transmission station in the distance. Once you reach the station, you’ll walk past a helipad and around the station. Continue along the path until you’ll have to climb down a cluster of big rocks.

    suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-10-1024x768

    At this point, you’ll come to a large rock on the cliff that overlooks the Hong Kong harbour. At first, we were wondering if this was Suicide Cliff as we couldn’t see anything else around that rock. Thankfully, some other people were there and told us that Suicide Cliff is literally just below. A word of caution: be careful when climbing down and making your way to the actual cliff – it’s all too easy to slip and seriously hurt yourself.

    Suicide Cliff

    suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-11-1024x768 suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-13-1024x768

    Congratulations – you made it! We were lucky that no one else was there, so we were able to spend time taking photos and enjoying the stunning scenery around us. I’ve done a lot of hikes in Hong Kong, but these views from the Suicide Cliff hike were definitely some of the best I’ve seen.

    Ending Point of Suicide Cliff Hike Hong Kong

    After you’re done at Suicide Cliff, head back up the way you came – past the transmission tower and into the grassy path for a few minutes before you reach a fork. Turning left will take you back the way you came, so be sure to continue heading down (veering a bit to the right) the path. This will eventually take you to Fei Ngo Shan Road. Keep walking down the road until you get to the main road. Cross the main road and you can either hop in a taxi or take a minibus to Choi Hung MTR Station (the minibus stop will just be to your left).

    Journey Length: about 10km
    Total Time: 4.5 – 5.5 hours

    日本這地方,無論去了多少次也想繼續去,正宗的日本菜,也是同樣百吃不厭。ICC 101樓的田舍家爐端燒是香港最正宗的爐端燒,日藉師傅在你面前把一客又一客的美食燒好,以木槳送至你面前,視覺和味覺都恍如置身日本,絕對是香港極佳的日式美食體驗!

    IMG_0277.jpg

    早前田舍家局部裝修,為的是迎接相鄰同集團的LE 39V,田舍家內部也作出了少許改動,但唯獨是這間爐端燒房間不變,日式風格依然,仍然是香港最正宗的爐端燒。

    IMG_0271.jpg

    爐端燒沒有特定餐牌,部分蔬菜食材放在人客面前,另外肉類相關或季節限定食材則可以參考牆上介紹。秋天,正是品嚐秋刀的好季節,牆上的「秋刀魚」三字,可有挑起閣下的深秋食慾?

    IMG_0263.jpg

    就算沒來過田舍家,都應該對這裡的名物鹽燒喜知次耳有所聞。如果你是為了這尾深海魚而來,請記得早點下單,因為大番頭牛尾昌一處理需時,大約需要用一小時才燒好,這段時間,既可看著大番頭燒喜知次,也可一邊品嚐其他爐端燒,這樣才是不枉此行。

    IMG_0261.jpg

    燒雞泡魚味醂乾香口微甜,而且不會太乾身,既是前菜,也是最佳的開胃小吃。

    IMG_0288.jpg

    第一道菜是炸豆腐,日本豆腐一向高質,田舍家的炸豆腐當然也不會差,沾少許醬汁已經很好吃。

    IMG_0289.jpg

    還記得之前提過的秋刀嗎?秋天的刺身拼盤當然少不了秋刀!而且還有牡丹蝦鰤魚拖羅,每一款都新鮮肥美,尤以秋刀更是令人回味。吃著這秋刀魚刺身,讓我深深感受到秋天之美。

    IMG_0316.jpg


    刺身拼盤精彩,海膽手卷也同樣讓人拍掌叫好。手卷卷成一口長方形大小,和坊間三角形手卷大有分別,女士們吃得容易,自然不會影響儀態。海膽鮮美不用說,紫菜香脆也讓口感更豐富,不錯。

    IMG_0309.jpg

    海鮮停不了,接下來的燒鱈場蟹腳更是驚艷登場!比姆指還粗的鱈場蟹腳,帶著微溫,夾著炭香,味道鮮甜,肉質鮮嫩,好吃!

    IMG_0313.jpg

    沒記錯的話,這裡的雞翼串選用的是阿波尾雞翼,皮薄而肉嫩,肉質充滿彈性,和一般的雞翼味道分別很大,值得一試。

    IMG_0323.jpg

    免治雞肉串是新嚐試,自家製的免治雞肉丸是新鮮製作,肉質結實不鬆散,但最精彩的還是那只雞蛋黃,鮮艷富蛋香,輕輕攪拌,濃稠蛋漿沾在雞肉串上,美味之極。

    IMG_0332.jpg

    除了秋刀,其實秋天栗子也正當造。原粒烤栗子色澤金黃,口感比街頭燒栗更好,味道也更甘甜。

    IMG_0347.jpg

    田舍家爐端不止肉類出色,燒蕃薯等蔬果類都一樣精彩。蕃薯燒得外皮帶脆,入口即溶,味道更是軟糯甘甜,愛蕃薯的千萬不要錯過。

    IMG_0351.jpg

    另一樣燒日本青椒仔香港人應該並不常吃,別以為小的青椒辣椒就必定會辣,實情是這款青椒仔一點都不辣,口感比一般青椒好,有興趣可以試試。

    IMG_0342.jpg

    愈夜愈精彩的爐端燒,接下來開始這晚的重頭戲。燒北寄貝以熱石盛載,香氣夾雜熱氣飄來,同時北寄貝又在熱石上枝枝作響,就好像在跳舞一樣。在最熱最精彩的一刻品嚐這北寄貝,肉質、火喉和味道都剛剛好,精彩。

    IMG_0365.jpg

    就在享用食物期間,原來大番頭已經為我們燒好重頭戲鹽燒喜知次。經過一小時的鹽燒,這尾其貌不揚的深海魚已經變得金黃發亮,同時散發出令人垂涎的香氣。馬上以筷子輕輕刺開魚身,魚油伴隨清脆的魚皮聲流出,馬上把皮和肉都一拼放進口中,香脆魚皮、嫩滑魚肉、豐腴魚油俱全,這就是為甚麼喜知次這麼受日本人喜愛的原因了。

    IMG_0374.jpg

    之前吃過這裡的燒和牛串,但燒牛柳還是第一次。宮崎牛柳燒好後一件件切開,看得出嬌嫩,吃得出的和牛香,對比和牛串是另一種美味。

    IMG_0384.jpg

    吃到這階段,基本上已經很飽了,但當看到最後兩款飯品,還是難掩驚嘆之色。北海道海鮮蒸飯以海膽、蟹肉、帆立貝、三文魚籽作材料,海鮮之味滲入飯中,沒有不好吃的理由。

    IMG_0399.jpg

    北海道海鮮蒸飯好吃,但相比之下,和牛松露蛋飯只有過之而無不及。和牛先輕灼至表面微香,切開仍看到嬌嫩艷紅的和牛雪花紋。把蛋黃、碎蔥花和黑松露攪拌,香氣立時倍增,也把和牛片昇華至另一境界,幾種食材的衝擊,味道有如幾何級數般上升,這個飯就算再飽,我也忍不住吃完再添。

    IMG_0411.jpg

    樁年糕是爐端燒房間每晚的必備節目,幾位師傅和食客打成一片,以口號引領,跟著節奏以木槌樁年糕。木槌有大有小,無論大人或小朋友都歡迎參與。

    IMG_0428.jpg

    年糕樁好,就會變成甜品送給各位顧客。自己有出一分力,吃來也特別開心,對吧?

    豐富滿足的一夜,配點水果或甜品會更完美。果物是日本貨,雪糕也有些特別的口味,就像我的海鹽雪糕,坊間少見亦好吃。

  7. 瑞典working holiday可以用網上或紙本方式申請,不過相信沒有人會用紙本申請吧,網上申請可按此連結,讀過申請指引後按begin application會轉到下圖頁面,因為是政府文件所以請填真實資料。如圖片太小可按圖放大。

    1.jpg

    填完後會有一封電郵送到所填郵箱,當中包括帳戶號及臨時密碼,更改密碼後就正式開始申請。第一頁問你申請原因,排除法下只有work in Sweden是正確選項。

     2.jpg

    之後有Working holiday visa可選。

    3.jpg

    個人資料理應沒難度,不過place of birth沒有hong kong可選,而我係英屬香港出生,就此我有打電話去領事館問,然後職員答覆係:「咁而家係中国吖嘛」,china囉屌,citizenship都係china囉屌。BNO不屬於citizenship,所以填UK會否有問題不要問我。

    4.jpg

    C/O 在香港應該不會用到,因為我們用門牌號,但在瑞典則很常用(英國我也沒用過)。C/O全寫是 care of,通常情況下我們沒有自己物業,所以要額外在C/O一項填寫屋主的姓名,才能夠收到信,全因瑞典的公寓並沒有門牌號(最少我住過的沒有)。不清楚C/O的用意,我只覺得還是香港用幾樓幾室的方式簡單得多。

    最後一項contact with Swedish mission abroad是在哪裡取證,如果能夠在歐洲取證的,最好不要回香港取,因為香港領事證就真的只有取證的功能,但在其他國家的大使館那邊聽說還可以打指模不用在瑞典排隊,當然要你剛好在外國又有大使館才行。

    至於申請人在瑞典申請會怎樣就不得而知,有一個個案是申請人在申請期間已經入境瑞典,然後批發簽證後他必須出國再入境,據他說還是拍下當天的報紙證明已經出國。我的估計是瑞典需要在他的護照上蓋章,所以他必須彈出彈入…

    5.jpg

    再來是填護照號,是否有外國居留權,還有最近一年有否進入申根國,媽的申根國這一項填到我吐血…雖然我覺得不申報也不大問題…

    6.jpg

    之後填寫預計出入境日期,大概填就好不必很精準。入境原因我也只是寫一兩句要enjoy lagom life甚麼的,不要作文浪費時間,他們不會認真看。

    7.jpg

    經過一頁文件檢查後就要上傳附件了:
    Airline ticket — 可用存款代替,不建議未取得簽證就購買,因為批核時間可以很長
    Health insurance — 一定要買而且要覆蓋整個簽證期間,但不需此階段提交(下詳)
    National Passport — 沒難度
    Offer of employment — 如working holiday申請者在此階段已確定工作,申請working visa吧
    Proof of financial — 如果用存摺記得要有自己的名字和更新,可用E-bank或APP的擷圖

    簽證批核時間最少需時一個月(甚至有人超過三個月),有些個案甚至在預定日期後才批發簽證,此情況當然要更改出發日期,所以機票很難早買。

    簽證生效時間是能夠有條件更改的,我在申請時未有購買保險,當局電郵通知要補交保險文件,我就跟當局說我的人事登記在六月二十,所以想由當初的六月五改成六月十八生效,之後我買了六月十八生效的一年期保險,簽證時間也改成六月十八生效。如果一開始就提交保險,相信會以該時間作準不能修改。

    另外有些人本身已經有月供保險,有機會不用購買working holiday保險,但你需要一次交足該時段的保費,當局的專員也不一定接受,只能祝君好運。

    8.jpg

    最後當然是繳費了,記得確認資料無誤。


    9.jpg

    瑞典工作假期的生活不輕鬆,我也不知該不該祝各位申請成功,最緊要唔好死就得。

    還記得當初Texas Burger在天后開業時來過好幾次,現在在旺角也有分店;這天剛好在附近,便來到這裡吃burger。

    2.jpg
    在Texas Burger,當然要吃texas burger,用了燒烤醬,味道上特別的惹味,牛肉方面,質感是帶鬆散的那種,最棒之處便是當中有洋蔥圈,增添了burger的口感。這個包身塗滿了牛油,味道特別的香,亦烤得很脆。


    1.jpg
    我們加了$36轉combo,combo包括了一杯飲品和薯條,我選了橙汁;這裡的薯條是頗出色的,炸得非常香脆,薯味亦濃郁,超喜歡。

    3.jpg
    另外亦點了一份豬肋骨,同樣的都是bbq醬,醬汁惹味;而豬肋骨的肉質雖不至很韌,但濕潤度可以高一點。

  9. HK Express Turns 5 and the Hong Kong-based Airline Celebrates with HKD55* Up Birthday Fares and HKD5 Specials!!

    43984414_432115853858974_692820814670077007_n.jpg

    Time flies when the guests are having fun! It’s hard to believe it’s already been five years since HK Express converted to an LCC in October 2013. The Hong Kong-based airline is celebrating its fifth anniversary with a special promotion that will make its guests travel dreams come true before other commitments – like marriage, kids or work – get in the way!

    Over the past five years, the airline is proud to have flown more than 13 million people to various destinations across Asia, all while maintaining an incredible load factor of 87 per cent in average. Coming up in 2019, HK Express is excited to launch new inflight menu items on 1 November as well as a route to Nagasaki on 19 January. Nagasaki is the popular port city in Japan which is well known with its UNESCO listed heritage sites. The introduction of the new routes brings the airline’s route map to a total of 24 destinations.

    To ring in the big birthday this October, HK Express is offering an amazing “Travel Best Before” Birthday Sale to its intrepid guests with 70,000 seats at fares from HKD55* to 23 destinations, including the newly-announced route Nagasaki in Japan. The flash sale will launch in three separate phases, beginning on 27 October (09:00), followed by 30 October (09:00) and 2 November (09:00), running until 4 November (23:59). No matter when guests book, each wave shares the same eligible travel period from 9 November 2018 to 28 September 2019.

    Not only can guests snap up HKD55 fares, but they can also take advantage of special HKD5 birthday perks, such as upgraded checked baggage. From 27 October to 4 November 2018, guests can enjoy a special price of HKD5 for every additional 5kg starting from 20kg checked baggage allowance upon purchasing air tickets via HK Express website and mobile app. Better yet, the airline is serving up tasty inflight dishes, such as oriental barbecued pork puffs, pineapple Danishes, and Joe & Seph’s Classic Gourmet Popcorn – all for HKD5 from 27 to 31 October.

    HK Express is also partnering iBakery (a social enterprise under Tung Wah Group of Hospitals) to sell handcrafted cookies on board HK Express flights between 27 October to 4 November 2018. All proceeds will be used on bakery training for people with disabilities as well as to ensure safe and quality bakery products.

    Planning a trip before marriage, work or having children? Mark the calendar for Nagasaki following HK Express’ route debut this coming January. The historic Japanese city is an ideal winter or spring holiday. Come March, spring blossoms will blanket the city in soothing shades of pink. Travellers will also discover excellent street food, ancient temples, parks, and multiple WWII memorials to round out an enriching visit.

    We have been honoured to share the past five years with our loyal and adventurous HK Express guests,” says Mr Jonathan Hutt, Commercial Director of HK Express. “We hope our birthday sales and specials motivate travellers to get out and explore Asia before life gets in the way.
    HK Express will continue the celebration with a new “Travel Best Before” video series on social media, which promises even more special fares and travel perks. With these serious savings, guests can plan an unforgettable journey with friends, family - or take off on their own for some “me time”. Stay tuned for the series launch on HK Express social media channels from 26 October 2018 (www.facebook.com/HKExpress)!

  10. Hey guys! How have you been? A lot of people have been wondering where the eff do I get the money to pay for all the fancy gyms and workouts I go to. Well, here’s what I will tell you – I’m usually not sponsored, and when I am I’ll fully disclose it. I believe in paying for things I deem worthy, and only when I try stuff for myself will I feel the pinch of pros and cons for reals.

    With that said, here’s the reveal – I am self-paid on Guava Pass. (Been on the $1,588/month 3-months unlimited* classes package – you’re tied in for 3 months but you pay per month). Read on if you want the real truth. #livingmytruth

    25035872_402971296825905_443218109869640

    me @ Warrior Academy

    What is Guava Pass?

    It is an aggregator of gyms around town that lets you pay one price and visit all sorts of fancy gyms. Literally the best ones in town, for less than HK$2000/month – meaning less than HK$200/class. Well what’s the catch? You only get to visit each gym 2 or 3 times a month.

    I think it started out being a way for people to try out gyms, get a taste of what they offer, or for travellers who just need a couple of classes when they’re in town. But for me, it turned into a hack to save some coins.

    Full disclosure of course there are other competitors a la KFIT but I find the selection of gyms on GP is better, and so the price is higher too.

    The Pros

    1. Money saved – Instead of paying $2-3000 per month for a membership at a kickboxing, or rebounding, or pilates gym, you pay almost half the price but get the same quality classes. Some of my haunts include Flex Studios, Pherform, Optimum Performance Studio, and Lemondrop Studio. I DIE for some of the kitted out vanity rooms of some places – and honestly isn’t that half the reason one would keep going back to the same gym? (minus the hot trainers)
    2. Variety – Don’t know about you, but I believe in a balanced workout as much as a balanced diet. That’s why most gyms offer yoga to counter the weight training or cardio. But with GP, I get to go the best classes, studios and instructors of my choosing. Kind of like a gym hit list if you will, that you can create and schedule your week around.
    3. Convenience – As a freelancer, I move around a lot. One week I’m mostly around Kennedy Town, the next week I may be stuck near Mongkok. GP lets me choose gyms that are convenient for me to get to instead of lugging my kit on a journey to the gym. It might not make sense for regular worker bees, but it does for me.

    The Cons

    1. Money wasted – If you don’t use your classes, you’re wasting money. If you cancel a class late, you get hit with $80 penalty. If you don’t go on at least 10 classes per month on an unlimited plan, each class you do go will decrease in value. All in all, you gotta be disciplined, or be prepared to spend some cash.P.S. you can pause your account when you go on holidays or want to take a short break.
    2. Inconsistency – Classes are harder to book than if you were an actual member of the gym. Makes sense for the gym, but probably not so much for you if you’re looking for some routine in your workout life. I probably only get to the same class once a month. Also probably won’t be able to book the same class as your friends – like I said, spots are quite limited.
    3. Discounted experience* – Gyms you visit aren’t designed for people who come and go. In all honesty, it will be harder to get to know the trainers and be a part of the communities. They might not take you seriously because they assume they won’t see you a second time. But if you’re only in for the workouts, then it probably won’t be something you see as a con.*But on the flip side I have made friends from all the different GP gyms just from one visit!
    4. Inconveniences? – There are times, maybe once or twice a month for me, where classes get cancelled because the class didn’t reach the headcount. But there are also times, where I rock up and unbeknowingly joined a personal training session because I was the only student. I’ve honestly had many a valuable lessons in pilates, weight training, functional training and more because of these accidental 1-on-1 sessions. So to me, NBD when a class gets cancelled once in a while. #yolo

    Me @ Feel Fit Factory

    TL;DR

    In conclusion… I love GP. If you’re a last minute kinda guy, or moves around town a lot, or want to try out the gyms and workouts before signing up, GP is great for you. If you’re short on cash and want the full experience of boujis gyms around town, GP is probably the only way to go as well. Like of course there are cons, but you take it knowing you are also paying less for the difference.

    Everyone who has an account gets one, I’m not special or sponsored OR affiliated. Just another girl who’s trying to earn a few free classes from referrals. If you do end up signing up through my link, I sincerely thank you in advance ?

    Till next time,

  11. 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.

    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

    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.
    IMG_7260-1.jpg

    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!). 
    IMG_7281-1.jpg

    IMG_7285-1.jpg

    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. 
    IMG_7291-1.jpg

    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). 
    IMG_7293-1.jpg

    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. 
    IMG_7296-1.jpg

    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. 
    IMG_7299-1.jpg

    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!
    IMG_7280-1.jpg

    IMG_7301-1.jpg

    IMG_7305-1.jpg

    IMG_7308-1.jpg

    IMG_7310-1.jpg

    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~

    20

    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

    42

    43

    44

    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!

    78

    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.

    Alaskan Crab Legs were only available during dinner time~

    55

    64

    65

    66

    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.
