  1. 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.

    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.

  2. 我之前在这里谈到了越南令人兴奋的投资环境,特别是在胡志明市。 越来越明显的是,由于各种原因 - 不断增长的经济,有利的人口和积极的政府政策,越南目前投资时机已经成熟。 但那里的机会远远超过了胡志明市 - 所以在这篇文章中,我想把重点放在另一个越南的主要位置:岘港。

    一个方便的位置

    岘港对于那些想进入越南房地产市场的外国投资者(特别是对于我们在香港的人来说,这可以说是一个很有吸引力的选择)呢? 那么,第一个也是最明显的原因是它的可访问性。 岘港距离香港只有短暂的90分钟航程。 三家航空公司 - 国泰航空,香港快运,捷星航空 - 他们之间每周都会提供25航班,已经很好地服务了,预计未来还会有更多航班。

    这种可访问性非常重要 - 当然这意味着您可以更轻松地从您的香港基地监控您的投资资产 - 但这也是岘港受到香港游客和其他游客欢迎的原因之一东亚的一样。 这是我们最近的和最容易到达的海滩目的地,因为这样的度假物业在香港有很高的需求。

    理想的生活方式

    尽管岘港作为越南第三大城市的地位,但它提供了比胡志明和河内更轻松的生活方式。 对于那些希望摆脱城市生活压力的人来说,这是一个完美的周末度假之地。 然而,因为它是一个中等城市,它拥有一流的基础设施,在东南亚的其他海滩度假胜地很难找到。

    会安和岘港之间的海岸线 - 超过25km的美丽海滩 - 令人惊叹,吸引游客。 高尔夫也在蓬勃发展,沿海有四个世界级的18球洞球场,而且还有更多球场正在兴建。 对于许多游客来说,中心城市岘港也是探索越南其他地区的有用基地 - 会安世界遗产中心就在附近,该国历史悠久的前首都Hué也在附近。 岘港的外国和国内游客人数每年都以惊人的速度攀升。 总而言之,对于那些希望投资该地区的租赁房产的人来说,这是一个极具吸引力的套餐。

    高品质的发展

    那么外国投资者希望在那里购买房产有哪些选择? 那么首先要说的是,即使在像岘港这样的高端市场,你在越南可能会获得更多的钱。 我认为,我在岘港看到的投资房产质量最令人鼓舞的迹象之一就是它们的完成程度如何 - 对许多房产已经完成的工作具有真正的质量,已被提供到具有全球知名品牌的高标准。

    与任何类型的投资一样,这是一个根据自己的喜好进行工作的案例,但选择范围从度假村管理的'condotels'和提供固定年度回报的别墅到未管理的单独公寓和别墅。 大部分高端物业属于第一类,对于不在越南的投资者来说,这是一个真正无忧的选择。 优质的餐饮选择的一个很好的例子是岘港尊贵度假村,那里设有118海滨别墅,都可以很方便地到达海滩。 从机场开车只需10分钟,开发项目包括餐厅,游泳池,健身房和水疗中心。 这只是众多开发商目前致力于在岘港附近沿海建设的度假胜地之一,看到他们正在完成并达到如此高的标准令人鼓舞。

    良好的回报

    当然,虽然美丽的位置很重要,但显然投资者也热衷于看到丰厚的回报 - 而且我认为这是岘港表现良好的另一个领域。 通常情况下,开发项目提供5到10十年以上年收益之间的任何交易 - 仅仅为了说明,岘港海滩上的融合套房目前提供6到8之间的保证收益计划,而Wyndham Soleil Danang在五年内保证5的回报。 然而,那些希望购买该地区保证收益的房产需要首先完成他们的功课,因为开发商承诺高租金回报往往伴随着房价的大幅上涨。

    当然,就任何潜在的房地产投资而言,您需要作出自己的判断,并根据其优点来抓住每个发展机遇 - 但对我而言,岘港对于寻求良好回报的香港投资者来说是一个充满希望的目的地。

  3. 今天記另一場與另一位日本友人的聚會。彼此因茶結緣,所以約一早想好要約飲茶聚聚;在眾多星級餐廳中,她選出了中環米芝蓮一星的 營致會館 Ying Jee Club,我們一眾靚太(往自己臉上貼金了~XD)當然和應!

     

    IMG_8326.jpg

     

    開業只是三個餘月便勇奪米芝蓮星的 營致會館,無論內外都貫徹以翠玉色為主調,格調清麗高雅悅目。相隔半年到訪,環境、餐單改變不大,服務也仍然不錯,例如可以遷就人數加減點心數目、主動添茶加水等,然而最忙碌時也會有應接不暇的情況。 

     

    IMG_8255.jpg

     

    不客氣開餐了!首先重溫 香蔥澳洲M9和牛千絲酥 ($78/3件, -1),由於日本友人及車媽媽分別不吃和牛/牛,所以只由我及清麗村姑分享;貌如手袋的千絲酥鬆化不得了,筷子一挾隨即斷成兩半,高水準令人想起三星 8餐廳 的出品!

     

    IMG_8261.jpg

     

    接著分享 荔茸火鴨藏珍盒 ($69/3件, +1),點心炸功一流,外層清脆酥化,中間荔芋與火鴨的配搭也很美妙。品嚐炸點心時,份外需要靚茶配搭,而這裡茗茶質素很高,值得點名稱讚!

     

    IMG_8262.jpg

     

    又重溫了 松露雜菜粿 ($69/3件, +1),粿皮內釀入三種菇菌及紅菜頭,面層再綴以黑松露醬,未吃先聞黑松露幽香,口感清新豐富兼帶微酸,是款健康清新又華麗的素食選擇。

     

    IMG_8263.jpg

     

    這裡又嘗試了 鮑汁海味黃金粿 ($90/3件 +1),賣相或不及前者,但一咬開澎湃的花膠及海參,滋味鮮甜纏綿,美味得來又滿有美顏的骨膠原,女士們不可錯過呢!

     

    IMG_8264.jpg

     

    來到 松露魚子龍蝦餃 ($120/3件, +1) 雖然也很足料,而且賣相高貴優雅,但口味偏向清鮮,鮮味反而不及海味黃金粿。二選一的話我會投前者啊!

     

    IMG_8275.jpg

     

    如此悅目好看又美味有實力的點心,在香港的確不多見,誠然是米芝蓮星級水準啊!

     

    IMG_8281.jpg

     

    IMG_8283.jpg

     

    接著又重溫了 脆香貴妃雞 ($280/半隻),之前分享過,此雞製法與傳統炸子雞截然不同,因此雞皮份外鬆化酥脆,同時肉質又加倍嫩滑,有種會令人一件又一件追吃下去的美味魔力。

     

    IMG_8289.jpg

     

    IMG_8300.jpg

     

    同時也重溫了集清脆、皮薄、熱暖、香氣於一身,鹹甜味完美平衡的 迷你菠蘿焗叉燒包 ($69/3件, +1),不過吃完這超足料的叉燒包後,肚子也開始飽了.....

     

    IMG_8304.jpg

     

    IMG_8307.jpg

     

    所以,去到之後的足料鮮甜 鮮蝦豚肉燒賣 ($78/3件, +1) 以及香口惹味 XO醬脆煎腸粉 ($88),雖然水準也很不錯,請原諒我開始「揸流灘」了....

     

    IMG_8312.jpg

     

    沒辦法,我還要留力品嚐甜品啊!首先是 桂花雪膠燉萬壽果 ($60),桂花香氣依依,配上甜美木瓜及滋潤雪燕,甜度剛好十分合胃;最後重溫又美又清新好吃的 楓葉柑橘鳳梨酥 ($54/3件, +1),又是時間捧著大肚腩回去接仔~

     

    IMG_8316.jpg

     

    IMG_8322.jpg

     

    兩個多小時的相聚說長不長,說短也不算短;然而四位靚太有著不少共同點,愛好又很相近,因此驚覺時間非常不夠!只好期待著下次再聚再吃~

  4. One of Bangkok’s best Thai restaurants, Nara Thai Cuisine, has recently opened at New Town Plaza in Sha Tin. It’s one of those kinds that serves traditional Thai cuisines in a modern classy way, which also specialises in serving Thai signature “boat noodles”.

    Coconut Milk Shake
    椰奶沙冰

    We start by having a sweet coconut milk shake, so chilled and sweet; followed by my favourite Salmon Carpaccio that is served with a tangy chili fish sauce dip. The salmon is thinly cut and garnished with garlic and chili slices.

    A simple and popular Tom Yum Kung comes next in an individual golden saucepan, cooked with plenty of kaffir lime leaves, fresh galangal and chopped lemongrass, whilst the soup base is slightly more sour than hot.

    Tom Yum Kung

    Another favourite is the soft shell crab with yellow curry, with a thick consistency that goes best with steamed rice or butterfly pea rice and roti prata.

    Fried Butterfly Pea Rice with Crispy Fish & Thai Herbs

    Last but not least, we have tried two boat noodles. One has tom yum soup base with glass noodles and pork balls, another has a sweet and fishy rainbow soup base with thin rice noodles.

    Rainbow Soup Rice Noodles with Fish Fillet
    彩虹湯魚片米粉

    To finish, it is always a must to have mango sticky rice covered with coconut sauce and puffed rice, fresh mango meat; also a coconut ice cream with assorted condiments including red bean, sweet corn kernels, nata de coco, grass jelly and pandan jelly noodles etc.

  6. nasi-kandar-georgetown-5-150x150.jpg

    Nasi Kandar is a popular local Malaysian dish that originated in Penang. When I was searching for local dishes and restaurants to check out, I came across Nasi Kandar Line Clear Restaurant Penang. I read about how this local canteen-style shop apparently served the best nasi kandar in Penang, so I obviously had to try it out. Let me jump to the point: I loved everything about my experience at Line Clear Restaurant. From the insanely delicious (and messy!) nasi kandar to the friendly and helpful service, this is one local food shop you need to visit when in Georgetown.

    Location of Line Clear Restaurant Penang

    nasi-kandar-georgetown-6-1024x683.jpg

    If Line Clear Restaurant Penang didn’t have a few signs on the sidewalk pointing out exactly where you need to turn to get your nasi kandar fix, we likely would have walked right by. Tucked away off Penang Road, it’s located right in the heart of Georgetown, beside 161 & 177 Penang Road, and is an easy walk from just about anywhere in that area. Plus, it’s open 24 hours so you don’t need to worry too much about when to go (I’d avoid lunch hours during the weekday, as it becomes incredibly busy with locals).

    The experience

    nasi-kandar-georgetown-4-1024x683.jpg nasi-kandar-georgetown-5-1024x683.jpg nasi-kandar-georgetown-3-1024x683.jpg

    As soon as we began walking down the short alleyway to the restaurant, we were eagerly welcomed by the staff. We told them that we had read about Line Clear online and wanted to try their famous nasi kandar. Since we had no clue how to actually go about ordering, one of the staff members simply asked us to choose a type of meat (I went with the tender roast chicken based off of his recommendation) and then told us to sit down while he prepared the dish.

    The food

    nasi-kandar-georgetown-2-964x1024.jpg nasi-kandar-georgetown-1-1024x683.jpg

    After only a few minutes, a whopping plate of food arrived in front of us. For those that don’t know, nasi kandar is essentially a variety of curried meat and vegetables. Aside from the rice and chicken, I wasn’t entirely sure what was on my plate, though I did recognize fried bitter gourd, okra, green beans, and cucumber. I’m less clear about the rest, but it didn’t even matter because this was hands down one of the best dishes I had while in Penang. To top it off, all this food (literally enough to feed two) was only RM14.30 – less than HK$30.

  7. Summer is here and time for summery shoes!! Mira Moon has teamed up with Brazilian jelly shoes fashion brand ZAXY to serve the [Yellow Summer Afternoon Tea] until the 31st of July!!.

    0B63F7FAFC225C01EA9CECl.jpg

    The tea set really appealed to me because it was colourful and on the sweet side there were donuts and scones.
    0B63F5A237A89B5A2F8185l.jpg

    Started with the bacalhau which are a signature at Supergiant as they serve top notch tapas. Smoked salmon and sandwiches are a must in tea sets, both were good especially the beef.
    0B63FB11DB1B61ACC7A1AAl.jpg

    Moving on to the scones, I loved the pineapple jam which gives it a nice summer splash while tasting good.

  8. 前排去觀塘食蛇,咁啱見到間蛇舖對面有間拉麵,作為偽日本人當然要去八下間拉麵店主打啲咩,原來係醬油拉麵系,而唔係香港最主流嘅豬骨拉麵。仲要有數量限定嘅slow cook叉燒拉麵,喺日本食過slow cook雞肉叉燒後念念不忘嘅我梗係唔會放過呢間舖啦。

    IMG_4810.png

    門口嘅告示牌雖然有大大張拉麵相,但吸引我嘅其實係左上角唔起眼嘅真叉燒拉麵,賣slow cook叉燒嘅拉麵全香港應該一隻手數得晒。因為我嘅目標只有一個仲要限定廿份,入去前先同店員確定無賣晒先入去,真係有種一係唔食一係我就要食最好嘅霸氣,咳咳。

    IMG_4809.png

    既然只有一個人,坐喺吧枱位就好正常,我都好鍾意睇住廚房嘅運作,呢種位置啱晒我。睇到枱頭有蒜頭辣醬胡椒粉同醋,再加埋個水壺真係日本常用嘅冰水壺,未食加定分先。

    IMG_4795.png

    拉麵嘅湯頭就分濃淡兩種,濃嘅會加入背脂即係豬肥,雖然京都系嘅拉麵係以濃厚見稱,不過食醬油湯底就梗係食清湯,我覺得醬油湯底唔應該落豬肥,好易冚過醬油味嫁嘛。

    IMG_4799.png

    等咗唔係好耐碗拉麵就嚟到,睇落幾大碗而且叉燒份量唔少,計落幾抵食喎。Slow Cook嘅叉燒梗係要帶啲粉紅色啦,但因為湯係熱湯,浸係湯裡面都會變熟好似生牛河咁,所以第一時間梗係食返塊叉燒。

    IMG_4801.png

    Slow Cook叉燒量多之餘並非燈影級,唔會一下就畀熱湯淥熟,帶微粉紅嘅叉燒食落的確夠軟熟,而且會多一份煙韌嘅口感,除咗醬油味外,仲會畀你一種類似風乾火腿嘅味道,無令我失望。

    IMG_4802-1.png
    粉嫩叉燒係耍家

    麵係最常見果隻黃色鹼水麵,醬油湯底十居其九都配呢種麵,雖然我自己就唔太鍾意鹼水嘅味道,但佢嘅鹼水味就唔太明顯,食落口彈牙唔會過淋,令人滿意。

    IMG_4807-.png
    鹼水拉麵幾傳統

    用豬骨煲嘅湯,就點都會有油花嘅,不過睇下湯面嘅油花其實唔多,絕對配得上清湯呢個名。飲一啖,醬油味突出而不失豬骨同木魚嘅鮮味,飲真啲仲會飲到薑味,好有日本嘅感覺,喺香港屬一流水準,就算走到日本都唔失禮。以為咁就完?少年你太年輕了,枱頭仲有一支醋,一加落去,由豬骨風變成魚介風,用清鮮嘅味道作結,就唔覺得有罪惡感啦。

    IMG_4805-.png
    醬油湯底夠和味

    無論湯底、叉燒都唔會輸畀日本嘅拉麵,價錢亦同日本相差無幾,唔想食香港主流嘅豬骨湯底,呢度絕對係個好選擇。

    價錢:$98

  9. 週末最喜歡和三五知己吃個afternoon tea,吃個tea,心情也會好些呢。這個週末,走到了AMMO,品嚐一個AMMO x CHANTECAILLEROSE DE MAI五月玫瑰下午茶。顧名思義,以玫瑰做主題,創作出多款造型別緻而具自然療效的健康美點及清新特飲。吃tea之外,每位客人還可以獲贈一份CHANTECAILLE尊貴護膚體驗套裝。至於價錢方面,HKD398/2位,以下午茶來說,這個價錢是非常吸引的。

    很喜歡這款tea bag,外貌十分討好呢;選了ginger lemongrass,很香的lemongrass,淡淡的薑味,味道不錯呢。

    untitled-20924006.jpg
    以粉紅為主題的下午茶真的十分吸引,如果不想喝茶或咖啡,可以選擇玫瑰特飲「Spy Rose」,當中有玫瑰蘋果汁及酸甜清新的青檸汁,味道清新,亦不太甜,十分開胃呢。

    最頂層的為甜點,玫瑰杯子蛋糕、白朱古力布朗蛋糕配核桃,迷你紅桑子撻和馬卡龍;每件都很粉紅呢。

    untitled-20923963.jpg
    愛scone的我當然最喜歡這層吧,這裡的scone十分美味喔,充滿牛油香,而且不會有苦味;吃時塗上clotted cream和jam,真的超美味喔。

    untitled-20923974.jpg
    最底的便是鹹點,當中有意大利黑毛豬火腿無花果卷、法式茄蓉酥餅、挪威煙三文魚玫瑰、蟹餅配雞尾酒醬;數款鹹點之中,最喜歡便是蟹餅,炸得十分香脆。

    在法國五月Le French GourMay來臨之前,LE 39V率先推出了幾款新菜式,從頭盤到主菜,從主菜到甜品,保持一貫水準之餘也帶來很大的驚喜。

    IMG_1628.jpg

    時值四月,六時下班,來到ICC 101 Sky Dining天色已漸黑。這個時候在LE 39V,遠眺維港,燈火通明,剛好可以欣賞維港夜景的變化。

    IMG_1626.jpg

    對上一次來LE 39V已差不多一年前,這一年間,個人變化很大,畢竟踏入男人四十,健康和家庭才是第一位。

    IMG_1634.jpg

    法國星級餐廳LE 39V由Frédéric Vardon主理,早已獲得米芝蓮星級美譽,去年落戶香港,一試已然愛上。所以當公關邀請試試季度新菜,雖然近年出外吃飯都是貴精不貴多,不會胡亂浪費quota,但LE 39V就是值得我二話不說欣然赴約。

    IMG_1637.jpg

    從香軟的小麵包開始,這裡的芝士球是我的心頭好,熱烘烘且芝香十足,既酥且軟。除此之外,今天還有個小驚喜,那就是接下來的兩款自家製牛油。

    IMG_1638.jpg

    像香皂的咸牛油印上了LE 39V的標誌,橙紅色的牛油塔則加入了辣椒,任何一款牛油塗在LE 39V自家製的麵包上也極好吃。咸牛油精美得不忍心食用,但個人更喜歡香辣牛油,點點的刺激,輕輕的打開胃口,為這晚的精彩打開序幕。

    IMG_1643.jpg

    第一道頭盤,是法國蟹肉蘿蔔卷(Roll Crab with Crunchy Radishes - White, Green, Pink - Saffron & Emulsion Sauce),有別於去年初嚐LE 39V時的華麗,這一次季度菜的樸素外表卻讓人感受到春天溫暖的氣息。鮮甜的蟹肉,配上切得極幼的蘿蔔絲,口感爽口,味道也清新。在蘿蔔卷上添上少許魚子醬增添鮮味,當然自家調製的醬汁也應記一功。整體來說外表看似普通,但好吃的味道卻半分不假。

    IMG_1649.jpg

    上回最喜歡的頭盤低溫煮農場雞蛋,今次稍作變動,變成了低溫煮蛋,青豆,羊肚菌,榛子碎(Our Egg Cooked Low Temperature, Green Peas, Morels Mushroom, Crispy Hazelnuts)。不再以無敵的菌香俘虜人心,取而代之以清新的青豆茸配合羊肚菌的菌香,把低溫慢煮雞蛋帶往另一方向的美味。

    IMG_1650.jpg

    青豆茸和羊肚菌的味道簡約清新,雖然個人還是較喜歡去年那款以菇菌為主角的低溫煮農場雞蛋,但今天這新版本還是令人讚嘆不已。最後千萬別忘記以炸麵包條伴吃,無論沾上蛋漿或青豆茸吃都非常合適。

    IMG_1904.jpg

    新菜式新驚喜,這一次的最愛頭盤非接下來的甲殼濃湯莫屬。這客甲殼濃湯,紅蝦肉他他,時令蔬菜啫喱(Crustaceans Bisque, Red Prawn, Carabineros Tartare, Seasonal Vegetables in Jelly),侍應會先奉上一碗紅蝦他他,再在人客面前慢慢注入甲殼濃湯,過程中濃郁香氣隨風飄來,讓人不期然吞了口口水。

    IMG_1665.jpg

    超濃郁的甲殼濃湯,其鮮味甚至比龍蝦湯更吸引!紅蝦雖名為「他他」,但其實紅蝦肉還十分完整,和甲殼濃湯味道同出一轍,簡直是完美組合。這客濃湯,要我喝多少碗都可以。

    IMG_1668.jpg

    嚐過頭盤,原來高潮還未完結。接下來的主菜時間,讓人再一次大開眼界。

    IMG_1903.jpg

    烤煙燻法國乳鴿,黃菇,紅菜頭蓉,檸檬汁(Pigeon from France - Roasted & Smoked - Girolles Mushrooms, Beetroots Mash, Lemon Condiment)把乳鴿兩款不同部位分別處理,鴿胸放在特製小盒煙燻,上桌時才打開盒蓋,縷縷輕煙讓室內一時之間充滿酒燻香。



    IMG_1674.jpg

    另一邊廂,鴿腿早已放在碟上守候,侍應再把箱子裡的煙燻鴿胸取出,放在碟上,人客就可以細意享用兩種截然不同的乳鴿部位。鴿胸生熟程度剛剛好,肉質極嫩且十分有爵勁。鴿腿肉的部份較少,脂肪不多,味道則較為香濃,兩者各有千秋,就看你的個人口味如何了。

    IMG_1676.jpg

    主菜不能少了牛,烤美國牛肉眼,鷹咀豆及薯仔蓉,油浸紅蔥(Prime Rib Eye Cap from US, 'Cafe Paris Butter', Chickpea & Potatos Panisse, Confit Shallots)賣相極為吸引,吋厚的肉眼扒烤得嬌嫩艷紅,拿刀子切下去,肉汁沿刀子流下來,吃一口,牛香在口中散開,好吃得沒話說。

    IMG_1678.jpg

    最後一道主菜是烤法國鯛魚,三式青露筍,尼斯沙律汁(John Dory, Green Asparagus from Provence - Raw, Marmelade, Cooked - Nicoise),賣相相對普通,但味道不點也不輸。魚皮烤得香口,魚肉也非常結實彈牙,配上微辣的醬汁,不肥膩且讓人胃口大開。

    IMG_1683.jpg

    主菜過後,終於來到令人期待的甜品時間了。上一次LE 39V的甜品叫好叫座,今回的甜品又會帶給我們驚喜嗎?無論如何,先以一口青蘋果雪葩洗滌味蕾,為接下來的精彩作好準備。

    IMG_1713.jpgIMG_1906.jpg

    梳乎里是法式甜品的表表者,上一次是干邑橙酒味,今次則是杏仁味的杏仁梳乎厘 - 杏仁粒,杏仁忌廉及杏桃雪糕(Our Souffle - Almond, Creamy Almond, Apricot Ice Cream)。吃的時候侍應才在中間開洞加入雲呢拿醬,蛋香隨熱力散發,未吃已經先興奮。配一口杏桃雪糕,或許幸福就是這麼簡單。

    IMG_1702.jpg

    第二款甜品是極可愛漂亮的鳥結糖蛋糕 - 榛子,開心果,及栗子蜜糖(Iced Nougat Cake - Hazelnuts, Pistachio - Chestnut Honey),像極蜂巢的鳥結糖蛋糕,和六角形的蜜糖脆片,最後還加了一只小蜜蜂造型的糖果,活像蜜蜂採花蜜的情景,讓人不忍心吃下去。

    IMG_1706.jpg

    最後一款甜品,是士多啤梨及大黃蛋白酥(Our 'Pavlova', Meringue, Strawberry and Rhubarb),巨大的蛋白酥就像一個陶瓷器皿,裡面盛載著草莓和大黃。

    IMG_1707.jpg

    把蛋白酥破開,一紅一白的顏色形成強烈對比,酸甜的草莓和香甜蛋白酥也有很大的化學作用,如果不怕蛋白酥的過甜,這道甜品還滿不錯的。

    IMG_1718.jpg

    從頭盤到主菜,從主菜到甜品,全部都一一嚐過,但還是有點意猶未盡。Petit Fours配上一杯香濃咖啡,就好像最後的一塊拼圖,把這一間變得更圓滿。

    IMG_1723.jpg

    此時,侍應為在座各位送上一件小禮物,原來那是自家製的迷你檸檬蛋糕。原來現在來LE 39V用餐,每位人客都會收到一件小蛋糕帶走,真的很窩心。

    IMG_1625.jpg

    除了以上的新季度菜式,LE 39V還推出了特別為法國五月Le French GourMay設計的菜單,晚市$1280,如此質素和環境當真超值。這個五月,相信大家的肚子會很忙了。

  11. I noticed these cup noodles because of the picture of the egg with a runny yolk.

    IMG_20180508_212947.jpg

    It turns out these cup noodles are sukiyaki flavoured so I am guess adding an onsen egg would make it taste better.
    IMG_20180508_212935.jpg
    IMG_20180508_213036.jpg

    When I peeled the lid back, I was amazed to see lots of huge spring onions pieces and bits of beef that looked very dark in colour compared to other Nissin Cup noodles.
    IMG_20180508_213104.jpg

    There was a lovely beef and onion smell when I poured hot water in it and evidently the broth was dark.
    IMG_20180508_213334.jpg

    IMG_20180508_213359.jpg

    The Sukiyaki flavour in cup noodle form was definitely delicious as it was like noodles in a strong beef and onion broth.
    IMG_20180508_213508.jpg

    The sachet gives it a more beefy flavour if you squeeze the lard in.

  12. Buddhists describe our habit of holding on to everything as 'attachment'. It’s true that letting go is never an easy thing to do. Whether that’s in everyday life, or in business. We can find it hard to move on. In addition, I think that we're always looking for ways to gain more control over our lives, and to cling onto that control.

    But this can be detrimental - especially in business. Understanding how to let go a little is one of the most important lessons I've learned. It’s transformed me from a manager into a leader, and enabled me to focus on what is really important for me professionally.

    Keeping focused

    What do I mean by 'letting go'? First of all, it doesn’t mean taking my foot off the pedal, losing focus or avoiding responsibility. It’s actually the complete opposite –and instead consciously letting go of the things that aren’t contributing real value to my everyday work. This enables me to concentrate more fully on the things that do add value. The beauty of this is that, today, I'm actually more focused, driven and clear about my responsibilities than before.

    And secondly, it’s helped me to lead better. The transition into leading others is often difficult. As we move up the ladder within an organisation, we often carry the responsibilities we had in our previous role with us. We can find them hard to let go of and we can find ourselves clinging to them in our new role too. The things we used to do and be responsible for give us comfort and a sense of safety. But moving forward they weigh us down and take up too much time.

    Learning to trust

    This brings me to what practical strategies we can put in place to avoid becoming attached to things that don't help us professionally? How can we learn to let go at work?

    One of the most important skills is learning how to delegate and avoiding getting involved in everything. As a leader, it's tempting to micromanage, but it’s rarely productive. A good team, who all understand what is expected of them, you can trust them to do their job properly. The benefits are two-fold: taking the burden off you, and empowering others to take on responsibility.

    The best way to make delegation easy is to hire people who are better than you. Realising that you can't do something as well as someone else is tough, but very useful in letting go. Trust me, you’ll be a better leader for it.

    I’ve also learned that it’s important to think about why you're still holding on to old responsibilities. Be prepared to do some really tough self-reflection - find out exactly what is holding you back. Is it self-belief? Do you worry that you aren’t cut out for your new role? Are you trying to impress people, or define yourself by how others see you? Or, are you afraid of failure?

    We’ve all encountered these feelings at some point. But, the only failure you need to really fear is the failure of letting go of the things you don’t need any more.

  14. 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 !! 

    POLITIQUEMENT CORRECT Photo couple 1 (libre de droits (c)Christophe Vootz).jpg

  15. 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
    和紙燈飾和日系格局,舒服又光猛


    20170129_195301.jpg
     單點食物,冷熱烏冬和烏冬鍋

    20170129_195308.jpg
     御膳款式多而精彩

    20170129_195319.jpg
     愛肉食者有日式炸豬扒、滑蛋豬扒或赤味噌豬扒,
    右手邊更有鍋物御膳,家人很感興趣,可惜年初二那天暫停售賣呀

    20170129_195330.jpg


    20170129_195342.jpg
     四款熱辣辣的烏冬鍋膳配天婦羅、刺身或壽司,真的好適合寒溫下享用

    20170129_195359.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


    * * * * * * * * * *

  19. 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.

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

    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.

    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_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_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!

  20. 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

  22. 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.
