  1. 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!

    Portuguese egg tarts were also available!!

    Restaurant interior filled with plenty sunlight.

    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!

    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

    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!

    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.

    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

    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。

    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

     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

  4. The game is on with Shake Shack and Five guys opening a few days after each other.

    This is the second branch of Shake Shack in Hong Kong with its first in Central.
    I was pleased with my first experience in Central so I didn't mind coming again to Admiralty as it is more accessible being close to the MTR exit.
    45307313_331791574219801_2031016205719859440_n.jpg

    The festive milkshakes weren't ready yet but I definitely have to come back for it.
    44679555_629512244113459_8315161461462066655_n.jpg

    On this visit, had the ShackBurger, SmokeShack and Shroom Burger.

    The SmokeShack HKD66 really hit the spot as the bacon was crispy and the chopped cherry pepper was punchy and tangy which complimented the beef.
    baon.jpg

    The ShackBurger is more basic but you get to appreciate the beef more.
    burg.jpg

    The Shroom Burger is a another experience because you get a crispy mushroom oozing with decent cheese in the middle.
    shrom.jpg

    Will definitely be back for the Holiday Shakes as I love hazelnut and Chocolate peppermint.

  5. 說起德國,大家想到的有甚麼?世界盃,足球名星或是benz?如果說’德國菜’,浮現的應該不外烤腸仔,燒豬手和大杯啤酒.德國菜在很多人心目中都是份量又大又膩又肉淋淋的almost primitive cuisine,但事實並不如想像般單調.

    從來都不是追潮流的人,在台灣大熱的KiKi麵早年開始在香港有售,身邊友人試過後相繼讚好,但我卻還是沒衝動買來試。直至早前金鐘茶米新開業,我才對這品牌產生興趣,因為這裡和KiKi品牌合作,除了KiKi麵,還有KiKi台式茶飲。

    IMG_2898.jpg

    開業之初,這裡的外賣台式茶飲只是半價!我也趁著中午空檔來喝一杯,個人覺得荔枝貴妃非常好喝,夏枯草茉莉也不錯,早已想找天再來試試KiKi麵。

    IMG_7749.jpg

    這天晚上,相約了很久沒見的友人在茶米碰面聊天,大家各有各忙,自然有說不完的話題。茶米位處金鐘太古廣場,晚上人客也相對禮貌,環境不會很嘈雜,也坐得舒適,最適合聚舊聊天。

    IMG_7679.jpg

    晚市奉上的並非一般開水,而是一杯米水,健康養生。

    IMG_7664.jpg

    KiKi台式茶飲外賣和堂用是有分別的,堂用供應五款人氣飲品,也可選配五款特色珍珠。

    IMG_7744.jpg

    各大台式茶店的珍珠試得多,辣的珍珠卻從沒試過。茶米有非常特別的川味珍珠,我選擇配堅果奶蓋KiKi烤茶。可能因為堅果的緣故吧,堅果奶蓋KiKi烤茶的感覺有點像鳥結糖,加入川味珍珠感覺特別,咬下去馬上能感受到川辣,奶茶卻又馬上為你「解辣」,很有趣。

    IMG_7673.jpg

    來茶米,當然要吃KiKi麵。坐下才知道最近茶米和米芝蓮星級主廚小西充Mitsuru Konishi crossover,推出了幾款以KiKi茶和KiKi麵入饌的菜式和甜品,機會難得,自然要一試。

    IMG_7691.jpg

    櫻花蝦蟹肉撈腸粉是這裡的招牌小吃,有別於我們熟悉的廣東做法,這裡賣的是潮式腸粉。腸粉混入櫻花蝦和蟹肉,海鮮的鮮味和腸粉十分匹配,只添少許豉油香已經很好吃。

    IMG_7707.jpg

    胡麻棒棒雞拌小醋麵是小西充作品,材料都是台菜常見,但做法卻帶點日式。KiKi麵口感不錯,類似冷麵的做法更顯麵條的彈性。配上香醋、雞絲和芝麻醬,好吃得過份。早聽說KiKi麵以拌麵做法最好,今天的初體驗果真如此。

    IMG_7700.jpg

    茶米除了麵,還有粥粉飯供應。這客黑松露海膽滑雞釡飯其實並沒寫在餐牌上,但細心留意就會見到其實餐牌上的照片是有的,膽粗粗問了一下侍應,原來已經開始供應,就點了一客試試。

    IMG_7704.jpg

    釡飯充斥松露香,釜鍋邊還隱約可以看到深褐色的飯焦。松露太香,海膽難免被搶去風頭,不過雞肉卻很有驚喜,嫩滑柔軟,值得一讚。

    IMG_7726.jpg

    友人和我除了愛茶,也都嗜甜,茶米的KiKi系甜品正好可以滿足我們這兩種要求。KiKi烤茶泡芙在點餐後才作後期製作,泡芙切開再注入正常忌廉和KiKi烤茶忌廉兩款,所以泡芙仍然酥脆。烤茶忌廉茶香濃郁,如愛茶的大可把正常忌廉放一邊,你一定會滿意這烤茶忌廉泡芙的。

    IMG_7732.jpg

    綠茶提拉米蘇也做得不錯,中間的手指餅很潤濕,忌廉也很幼滑。忽然想起,如果有KiKi烤茶版本的Tiramisu又會如何呢?

    IMG_7741.jpg

    茶米的甜品甚有台式風味,最後的伯爵戚風蛋糕配黑糖珍珠甚至把她們的招牌黑糖珍珠用作甜品材料!伯爵茶戚風蛋糕之上塗上了一層厚厚的伯爵茶奶油忌廉,黑糖珍珠則帶來另類口感,想甜一點,可以沾少許旁邊的黑糖漿,整體還算不錯,戚風蛋糕能鬆軟點更好。

    IMG_7750.jpg

    朋友不叫KiKi,但這晚我和KiKi約會,感謝友人陪伴過了一個開心的晚上。

  7. Renault - Captur

    Renault – Captur

    Thank you everyone for the warm welcome back :) I can’t describe how much it means to me! I’m trying to do one blog post a week and eventually get back to posting 2-3 times a week, but please be patient with me! Got some bad news that my new manager is leaving and moving on soon…which is really sad because I only just started in the team. However, I am so happy for him to be spending more time with his young children and the next stage of his career.

    Renault Captur

    If you follow me on Instagram you will know, I have been very spoilt by Renault Australia and Soda Communications this year. Every time they have an event we will always be picked up by a Chauffeur in a Renault car, it started from the launch party this year for the new Renault Captur (SUV – Sports Utility Vehicle). The next event was high tea at Fancy Nance with Adriano Zumbo and recently I was also then given the car for 2 weeks to test drive (separate blog post to come about this :)

    Fleurage - Create your own signature scent

    Fleurage – Create your own signature scent

    However, the event that I enjoyed the most would be the ‘Create Your Own Perfume’ held at the hidden but gorgeous Mon Bijiou on Flinders Lane. The day started at around 9:20am when our lovely driver picked us up in a Ivory White and Diamond Black Captur, I’ve been in this car many times and it always surprises me how spacious it is both in the front and back. We then arrived at the venue at around 10am and all settled in with a glass of champagne in hand and took time to enjoy the great scenery Melbourne has to offer.

    Fleurage

    Once all the guests had arrived, we sat down in our seats and was introduced to Emma the owner and perfumer of Fleurage based in Williamstown. She explained to use how we were going to create our own personal scent and that perfumes consist of a base, heart and top notes. Which made sense because when I spray perfume, I can smell the different layers of scents. It was very interesting the first thing we were asked to do was to fill out a short questionnaire and Emma would then give us indication of what colour of scents we should focus on smelling. For instance, one of the question was which season do you like the most and I chose Spring because I’ve always like floral sweet scents and rest assure I was asked to smell and focus on the scents in the ‘pink’ section. While Mr Bao (yes I dragged him along with me :P) much prefers Autumn and one of his favourite food is sushi…he was asked to focus not the ‘green’ and ‘black’ which had scents like seaweed!!!

    Flerauge perfume making

    The next step was to choose 4 base notes, 7 heart notes and 2 top notes. You start from the bottom of the tray and move your way to the top. I thought it was going to be a lot harder to choose from 80 scents but I think I know myself very well, because it only took me a couple of minutes to choose everything. I chose scents like Gardenia, Jasmine, Honey Suckle, Fig and Vanilla all those sweet girly scents. While Mr Bao had a lot of trouble choosing between the woody or fresh grassy scents, he ended up with Fernwood, Sandalwood, Lime and Citrus huge contrast from mine.

    Fleaurage Perfume making

    So glad they had coffee beans for us to refresh our noses because honestly after a while my nose was getting desensitised and I couldn’t distinguish the different scents. That’s why I have so much respect for Emma, she didn’t have any trouble with the scents and was able to quickly formulate each and everyone of our perfumes! That’s about 20 in only 10 minutes or so.

    20151121-IMG_2016

    Once we got our ‘formula’ from Emma, it’s actually quite easy to ‘make our own perfume’ we grabbed our bottles from the bag which had I believe distilled water and we started added drops of scents. You would add more droplets of those that you want to have a stronger presence in the perfume, like mine I had more drops of rose and jasmine.

    Renault Fleaurage

    Thanks Mr Bao for capturing this photo! It’s my favourite from the day!

    20151121-IMG_2015

    He didn’t do so badly himself, but he was much more particular than me. He was counting every drop again and again and was worried he would add too many or little. It must be the scientist in him haha

    Never Too Sweet Own Scent!

    Never Too Sweet Own Scent!

    Ta da!!! Here it is! My very own Never Too Sweet perfume! Staying true to my brand it’s a very sweet florally perfume with strong musk, jasmine and apple notes haha. While Mr Bao’s was very citrusy and refreshing with grass, sandalwood, lime, mint and orange.

    20151121-IMG_2013

    Mr Bao was very skeptical at first when I told him we were going to a perfume making class, but he thoroughly enjoyed himself and has been using his own cologne since then. I’ve been joking once he’s used up his bottle he wont have his own signature scent anymore but not to worry because Emma offers a refilling service for $2.5 a ml which works out to be around $125 for 50mls. For more information about Creating Your Own Perfume please visit the Fleaurage website :D I think its a great idea for a birthday party or a bridal shower, I highly recommend it and would love to do it again.

    Now let’s move onto the FOOD because at the end of the day I am a food blogger and eating takes precedent over every if not most things :D And don’t forget camera eats first hehe I’m glad the waitress was so patient and would come to me first with the food, because she knew I wanted to take a photo. The catering was done by Om Nom from the Adelphi Hotel which means we were in for a treat because food is always great. I still remember when we stayed at the hotel last year for my birthday and I really enjoyed the room service.

    All the savoury canapés were presented so nicely with a heart shape skewer and all tasted delicious! I was impressed with how much flavour such small items had. They were also a great size not too big or small and no mess when eating them.

    Soft shell crab with aioli

    My favourite was definitely the soft shell crab with aioli, deep fried but not greasy. Wish I grabbed another one! I really love how soft shell crab is such a trendy food item now it appears on most menus, I remember when it use to be limited to Japanese restaurants.

    As for sweets they had mini Churros with chocolate sauce and also Rapsberry sorbet with fresh berries and meringue pieces. Another smart way of serving sorbet no spoons required, as they are made into little discs very refreshing.

  8. 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.

    IMG_7265-1.jpg
      
    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!

    It has been a while since my last visit at the iconic, contemporary Chinese restaurant, Above and Beyond. But recently, I was informed that their menu had some new changes and I was invited to try their new items including Wok-Fried Prawn with Tangerine Peel and Luoding fermented Soy Bean as well as my favourite Steamed Minced Pork with Tai O Salted Fish. I went for lunch and we were 4 people, so apart from the a la carte courses we also ordered a few dim sum dishes on the side.


    After we placed our orders, the dim sum arrived shortly. The serving of the food was very efficient, perhaps a bit too efficient in our opinion because soon there were a lot of food on our table and it was a challenge to finish eating the food before it got cold. You know dim sum is best when eaten hot so we asked them to slow down a little bit, and the a la carte courses were served after we finished with the dim sum

    One of our favourite dim sum that we had was the Steamed Lobster and Scallop Dumpling (48HKD per person). The dumpling skin was perfectly translucent and smooth packing juicy scallop and sweet lobster meat. This moreish bite was also topped with a dash of bird's nest

    IMG_0910.JPG



    On the other side the Steamed Flour Roll with Minced Beef and Tangerine Peel (68HKD) was less impressive as the flour roll was a bit too soft and thick. The minced beef also lacked a bit of flavour

    IMG_0904.JPG



    I also ordered my favourite Chinese soup; Almond Pork Lung Soup with Fish Maw (428HKD for 4) and I thought it was one of the best that I had in Hong Kong with generous, big chunks of fish maw and perfectly cooked pork lung. The soup was rich and they managed to balance out the flavours between the fish maw, almond and pork lung very well

    IMG_0912.JPG



    In general, I think they do pretty well with their steamed dumplings so the Steamed Mushroom Dumplings with Bamboo Piths (48HKD) was another likable item among the table

    IMG_0907.JPG



    We also ordered the classic Steamed Pork Dumplings with Shrimp and Sea Moss (58HKD) with tender meat and a slightly bounciness in the texture

    IMG_0906.JPG



    Another favourite was actually the Shrimp and Pork Wontons in Soup (88HKD). The wontons were extremely smooth and silky with delicious shrimp and pork paste inside their pockets. This one is definitely a must order next time we come back

    IMG_0900.JPG



    The last dimsum we had was the Cantonese Style Steamed Brown Sugar Sponge Cake (48HKD). It was served before we even had the main courses so the staff took it away and gave it to us at the end of the meal. Nevertheless, the sponge cake was utmost legitimate with a consistent fluffy and airy texture

    IMG_0908.JPG


    Moving on to the new dishes in the a la carte menu

    Crispy Claw with Shrimp Mousse - This was overdone and the claw was too firm in texture. The aroma of the shrimp and the crab didn't come out quite well, and it almost resembled like a meatball

    IMG_0901.JPG



    Steamed Garoupa Fillet with Egg White and Yellow Broth - The fish was very nice and the small pearl-like egg white added an interesting texture to the dish with a light flavour that didn't overwhelm the fish

    IMG_0914.JPG



    Wok-Fried Prawns with Tangerine Peel and Luoding Fermented Soy Bean - The prawn was succulent with a distinct taste of tangerine peel and fermented soy bean

    IMG_0919.JPG



    Wok-Fried Wagyu Beef Cubes with Chiu Chow-Style Soy-Marinated Goose Liver - The beef cubes were overcooked and rough, and the combination with the gooseliver was a bit oily as the whole dish had too much oiliness which made it it very heavy

    IMG_0922.JPG



    Steamed Minced Pork with Tao O Salted Fish - This was probably my favourite among the new dishes. The meat had an appropriate balance between lean meat and fat giving it the right texture and taste

    IMG_0925.JPG



    Marinated Chicken in Shaoxine Wine - The chicken wasn't tender enough, perhaps the cooking time was a bit too long and the Shaoxine wine aroma was actually quite weak

    IMG_0929.JPG



    Northern Chinese Style Crispy Sliced Potato with Dried Chili Pepper - Surprisingly good with a crunchy outer texture and a soft inner center releasing out an earty potato taste with a kick of spiciness

    IMG_0931.JPG



    Baked Sago Pudding, EggYolk Sponge cake, Sesame Puff Bird's Nest - All three dessert didn't fare very well as the sago pudding was too thick, sweet and heavy while the egg yolk sponge cake wasn't soft at all. The best thing was probably the sesame puff

    IMG_0932.JPG


    Above and Beyond is a great place to take family and relatives for something different for dim sum and dinner, but I reckoned that their contemporary dim sum dishes had a stronger edge than their creative a la carte courses.

  10. 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。

  12. 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.

  13. 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)!

  16. 在美食的世界,到底傳統好,還是創新好?這個問題不易回答,但個人認為真正成功的大廚,一定會在傳統中創新求變,領導食壇、創造新的經典;若干年後,又成為後世「新的傳統」。這套傳統融和創新的哲學,套用在營運餐廳中一樣合宜,最近就在尖沙咀星光行重開的北京樓,我看到了這個莫妙的組合!

     

    IMG_1898.JPG

     

    不知大家有否留意?北京樓 的英文是 Peking Garden,其中 Peking 正是北京的舊名,現已正名為 Beijing 。其名字加上悠長的歷史(1978年開業),注定了其懷舊及傳統風格,所以正值40週年重新裝修時,這兩點正是餐廳必須保留的元素。

     

     

    IMG_1900.JPG

     

    這晚再踏足重新再開幕的 北京樓,一來到迎接我們的,除了精美的「春回大地」刺繡圖,還有傳統的紅金隸書招牌,勾起滿滿的回憶啊!

     

    IMG_1286.jpg

     

    星光行北京樓大廳可享維港美景,廂房則可俯瞰海利公館;而五間廂房各有不同主題及特色,不過遲了抵達沒拍照了。換成現代式裝潢後也於大廳增添了一個開放式廚房,讓客人可以親身見證大廚片鴨的手藝。

     

    IMG_1287.jpg

     

    天氣還有點悶熱,見到店內有口感柔滑的茉綠泡泡茶(氮氣茶)供應,馬上點了一杯 葡萄柚.荔枝泡泡茶 ($34),清新輕甜、滿有果香十分怡人,值得推介!

     

    IMG_1289.jpg

     

    首道菜是 麻醬雞絲撈起 ($108), 正是巨大昇級版的雞絲粉皮,除了份量加大,還增加了蘿蔔及紅椰菜,口感更加豐富美味;又可以佔撈起的喜慶意頭,不錯不錯。

     

    IMG_1295.jpg

     

    同時上場還有 揚州龍青瓜 ($88),此菜絕對是大廚深厚刀功的展現,仿如盤龍造型的龍青瓜可拉至約一米長,食前會由侍者幫忙剪開以便分享。青瓜加了柚子青檸醬汁調味,所以草青味不算太強,我也能接受得來;口味清新挺推介多人分享的!

     

    IMG_1291.jpg

     

    IMG_1303.jpg

     

    接著是令人嘩然的 東海龍皇 ($780),一款40年前北京樓的經典菜色,這次強勢回歸並以全新演繹登場!材料包括大蝦、螺片、帶子及窩筍,炒香後配上薯蓉及栩栩如生的紅蘿蔔龍形雕刻,正是色香味俱全之作。

     

    IMG_1307.jpg

     

    IMG_1319.jpg

     

    還有幾乎每次上北京樓都會點的 糖醋桂花魚 ($298),魚肉集酥脆甘香與肉嫩細滑於一身,配以醒胃可口的醬汁,以及生動活潑的造型,自是討人喜愛的。

     

    IMG_1327.jpg

     

    但對北京樓最深的情意結還是 烤北京填鴨 ($460隻/$240半隻),正好北京填鴨的英文也是 Peking Duck,更與店名相呼應。這裡選用油脂分量少的上等北京嫩鴨,連皮吃也不會太肥太油;大廳一般由開放式廚房新鮮片起上檯,就坐廂房就可以享用席前片鴨服務。

     

    IMG_1328.JPG

     

    IMG_1333.jpg

     

    這晚我們沒點二食,純粹品嚐鴨皮/連皮帶肉的烤鴨,以及海鮮醬、青瓜、京蔥及麼麼皮的傳統組合。這裡的鴨子本來脂肪就不算多,肉又香嫩,個人認為比上週另一間烤鴨名店更好吃;而同上的麼麼皮又相當薄身,吃來沒那麼飽膩,所以忍不住連吞4大件才滿足收手!

     

    IMG_1345.jpg

     

    IMG_1348.jpg

     

    吃完烤鴨,來個 炒田園菜 ($118) 平衡一下吧:四蔬包括萵筍片、紫椰菜、蓮藕及南瓜,色彩繽紛、悅目可口,其中最愛漂亮花型的蓮藕片,清鮮爽嫩美味兼有之,又是吃了好多的!

     

    IMG_1338.jpg

     

    再來一個騰雲駕霧、豐腴不膩、鬆化美味的 東坡肉 ($158) 後,大伙都被大廳那邊強勁的黃飛鴻音樂吸引了,到底是甚麼事呢?

      

    IMG_1355.jpg

     

    原來,外邊有即席拉麵表演;別看師傅年紀輕輕,卻是相當熟架部,幾下功夫就將麵糰拉成長條狀,幾分鐘後,又長又細的拉麵就成型了(詳情可見 Facebook 影片)!不過受到強勁音樂的影響,現在每次吃拉麵都會想起黃飛鴻啦....

     

    IMG_1362.jpg

    接著是非常有看頭的 富貴雞 ($580),單是唯肖唯妙的母雞連雞蛋的麵包造型,已經令人叫絕,而上桌後還會淋上玫瑰露,再點火打造火焰富貴雞的效果,太呃 like 了吧?

    未算未算,餐廳還準備了大小金槌及相機,大金槌供食客扑雞,同時會幫食客拍照並沖洗即影即有照片;而小金槌及照片就成了紀念品。所以一定要預訂哦!

    而打開富貴雞,則是以荷葉包裹釀有鮑絲、螺片、冬菇等食材的黃油雞,香氣四溢、汁多味鮮,十分吸引,吃完很飽了... 之不過,先前的拉麵那麼吸引,怎也得來份簡單而美味的 北京炒拉麵 ($118) 才算滿足。

     

    IMG_1401.JPG

     

    去到甜品環節,也是驚喜連連:可愛逼真的 青蘋果酥 ($45/3件) 頗有酥皮月餅的味道,只是那新鮮酥皮更熱脆可口,中間餡料果真有著青蘋果肉,清新怡人而不膩,好吃極了!

     

    IMG_1411.JPG

     

    還有味道與賣相一樣美的 荸薺餅 ($72/6件);荸薺,又名馬蹄,剁成細蓉再塞進煎堆內,那份清香、水嫩及爽脆,與熱騰騰又香口的芝麻脆皮煎堆形成強烈又美好的衝突,超喜愛的!

    最後純為滿足自己的憶B癮,再貼上 baby Matthew 在北京樓吃飯的舊影片,並再一次深深慨嘆:時光一去不復返啊!!!

    The CNY aside, February is always a busy yet rewarding month for men and women alike. We plan what to buy, where to dine, and how to spend the romantic night together. Everwhere you have special treats and menu for Valetine…

    As I can hardly resist a nice afternoon tea, I was excited to try the Island Shangri-la’s recent special that is only available for a short while. As if a decent cuppa and fine little sweets are not enough, this afternoon tea came with Pierre Jouet’s Rose. Having afternoon tea in a Harbour-side hotel with your loved ones sounds, I know, cliché, but you do have a decent Champange here to brighten things up. It was foggy day when I was there for a media event; that glass of champagne was particularly helpful.
    IMG_5524.jpg
    The scone here is commendable; it is difficult to find a nice piece of scone these days, even in London, let alone in Hong Kong. I was still haunted by my recent experience in one of the big name hotels in London, but the scone here was a pleasant surprise, though it is by no means perfect. It got a nice fluffy texture; it would be better if it is more buttery. The flavour needs some more work. I had much worse but I indeed had better ones.
    IMG_5530.jpg
    IMG_5565.jpg


     

    The menu was, I presume, tailored to suit the champagne. I found the lobster sandwich, Alaskan crabmeat sandwich and foie gras terrine went particularly well with the champagne. The champagne marinated Gravlax was very refreshing; could be a good appetizer for my dinner.
    IMG_5558.jpg

    Many of the sweets are worth trying. I would recommend the cherry and champagne cheesecake and the mascarpone and champagne rollcake. I am not a big fan of cheesecake but I did like this one. It was not heavy at all and actually quite balanced between the cheesy and sweet flavours. The rollcake was very moist and filled with creamy mascarpone. Shangri-La should consider keeping these items in their cake shop. But it was the Amour cake that won the day. It was beautifully constructed sponge cake with champagne infused cream layers, with shiny bubbles on top, possibly a tribute to the champagne. I could easily finish my slice.

    Apart from the tiny glitches here and there, this thematic afternoon tea was beautiful. The chef’s effort in pairing the food with the champagne was particularly commendable. There was no “tea” per se here; this French interpretation of tea works just fine for me.

  18. Right, I am a morning person who can't skip breakfast for a day and in Dubai, I was so much looked forward to the breakfast time everyday 'coz there were just too many nice places around to enjoy a lovely brekkie to kick start a day. My friend brought us to this cafe & restaurant, Shakespeare and Co. to have a Full English Breakfast in a truly English atmosphere.

    9058533166_b95e750994_o.jpg

    The crafted glass cake cabinet has instantly unveiled the vintage feel.

    9056310691_a0e92cb7ee_o.jpg

    Once I stepped inside, whoa! I was like being brought into the imaginative world of Shakespeare!! Look at all those photos below, do they look like in the fairy tale? They are all sweet and colourful!

    Toasts and butter, served along with a tray of cute mini Bonne Maman jam & honey.

    9058532764_5e768b1f1e_o.jpg

    The set includes a glass of fresh pressed juice and a cup of tea or coffee. Here came my grapefruit juice, which wasn't too sour nor bitter but just refreshing!

    9058532726_3e552647c6_o.jpg

    My friend's cup of Earl Grey, nothing much special about it indeed...

    9056310237_f3c4a224a8_o.jpg

    My own Caffe Latte. Not too bad but a bit too much milk to my liking.

    9058532708_2098fd7c12_o.jpg

    My friend's English Breakfast (AED50) with grilled beef bacon, turkey sausage, roasted potato, scrambled egg & baked beans. Their scrambled egg was generally too dry and not fluffy enough, while the beef bacon and turkey sausage were quite nice and tasted special as I never tried a bacon made of beef and sausage made of turkey before!

    9056310163_d27f0a2ec8_o.jpg

    My American Breakfast (AED50) with same dry & stiff scramble egg, sauteed mushrooms, beef bacon and hash brown. Everything on the plate was not remarkably good or surprising, except the hash brown that wasn't the ordinary frozen type but made from freshly shredded potato! I was impressed indeed!

    9058532526_09202e6dd4_o.jpg

    My hubby's American set was almost similar with mine, only with the scrambled egg being replaced by egg benedict. Another disaster on the egg benedict as the pouched eggs were overcooked and wait, where is the Hollandaise sauce for it??

    9058532486_32fc0bb85c_o.jpg

    This additional order, Savory Crepes with Smoked Salmon (AED33), should be the most delicious dish in our breakfast that day... The mixed greens was fresh & crisp and the crepe rolls were creamy with good dollop of lightly seasoned sour cream and fresh smoked salmon. Yummy!

    9056310053_d5f9d343a0_o.jpg

    Basically, the dining experience was great given such a dreamy atmosphere. Food quality was on average, which was more towards the positive side. Besides, indoor, alfresco dining is available too but the Sun was just too strong for me at that time. Yeah, I do recommend those who are visiting Dubai to spend a breakfast there.

    ここのところ、「あのお店閉店だって!」というニュースをすごく耳にします。
    家賃の高騰、後継者不足などなど閉店の理由はさまざまですが、古く続いたお店も多く、なくなってしまうことが本当に悔やまれます。
    これから年末年始で香港に行かれる方もいらっしゃると思いますので、閉店情報まとめました。
    悲しすぎるぜー!!

    170604-182650_R.jpg
    まずはこちらのお店。エッグロールで有名な【齒來香蛋卷】が11/28をもって閉店となります。いやいや、ちょっと待ってーなー!!あんなに美味しいエッグロールが食べられなくなっちゃうのかぃー!!
    この前、香港人の友人が来日したときにお土産でいただいてとても美味しかったの。また買いに行こうと思っていたのに・・・。ならばこの前、無理やり行くべきでした。
    本当に残念です。

    01B36F320289C822E29317px.jpg
    (openriceより引用)
    新蒲崗にある老舗レストラン【得龍大飯店】も11月中旬を持って閉店。openriceを見ると既に「結業(閉店)」となっております。
    ちょっとちょっと、待ってーなー!行こう行こうと思いながら行けなかったお店。悲しすぎます・・・。

    0467OQBD32DF62192A8F99px.jpg
    (openriceより引用)
    湾仔の【永華麵家】は68年の歴史を持つ老舗麺のお店でした。8月末で閉店しちゃったよ・・・。すごく昔に行ったきりだったなぁ。

    0206QBB4C99DAEFA720557px.jpg
    (openriceより引用)
    友達から聞いたホヤホヤの情報。上環の【源記甜品専家】も11月末で閉店してしまうらしいー!こちらもまだ行ってないよぉ!!もう悲しすぎる・・・。

    150703-185111_R.jpg
    尖沙咀の繁華街にひっそり佇む【海防道街市】。こちらは以前、ブログでもご紹介しましたが、リニューアルのため今月末で閉鎖となります。
    この趣のある雰囲気はとうとうなくなってしまうのですね・・・。
    リニューアル後はお店も全部戻ってくるのよね?

    180116-114817_R.jpg
    日本人には馴染みが深い銅鑼灣の【エクセルシオールホテル】。パッケージツアーのホテルになっていたこともあり、香港旅行で宿泊されたことがある方も多いと思います。
    残念ながら来年3月末で閉館となり、オフィスビルに生まれ変わるそうです。
    ・・・ってことは、『Expresso』はどうなるの?ロードストーズのエッグタルトは香港で食べられなくなっちゃうの?

    150703-142256_R.jpg
    昨年、【インターコンチネンタルホテル】が【リージェントホテル】にリブランドされるというニュースがありましたね。
    来年よりホテルは閉鎖となりリニューアルして2021年頃、【リージェントホテル】となって戻ってきます。【インターコンチネンタルホテル】という名前ではなくなってしまいます。
    元々、私が住んでいた頃はインターコンチじゃなくてリージェントだったんですよね。
    懐かしい感じがしますが、インターコンチがなくなるのも寂しいな。
    閉館の日程は分かりませんが、友人が1月に宿泊するのでまだ大丈夫だと思います。
    リニューアル中はレストランは営業しているようです。
    「アベニュー・オブ・スターズ」の工事もそろそろ終わりそうだし、旧ニューワールドセンターも完成まであともう少し。
    あの辺りもまた風景がガラっと変わりそうですね。

    気になるお店(特に老舗)は行ける時に無理にでも行くべきですね。
    結局行けずに閉店してしまったお店をいくつ見送ってしまったことか・・・。

  21. I've first read about Soft Creme from people's photo tag on instagram, and this ice-cream shop was so new that it wasn't even posted on OpenRice back then so I googled on it to get the address.  One day Missy Mo and I decided to go chill at Tai Hang, and Soft Creme immediately came into my mind.  We grabbed a quick bite then came here to check it out.  Probably because it was still new and not alot of people knew about it yet, there wasn't too long of a line-up.

    Ice-cream numbers 1-4 were made from Hokkaido milk (uh oh, I sense radiation) and A-D used cereal milk, not really sure what that was though.  I really wanted to try the special of the month which was the Moet champagne flavor but annoying Missy Mo rejected my craving and ordered the Flamed Bacon. sad
    Menu


    We were watching the food experts preparing the cups behind the counter and thought that we gotta try the Australian honeycomb next time.  Meanwhile, I also kept glimpsing at the cute cashier guy while waiting for our ice-cream... ;P
    03J1G63DC53B994C9C3A67m.jpg03J1FJ1068944B091A1FB2m.jpg


    They put dry ice at the bottom of the cup underneath the ice-cream to prevent it from melting too quickly since it's "soft" ice-cream and not the usual ones you take out from the Park n shop freezer.  I tried to take picture of the smokey effect (oooo, spooky) but was a tad bit late.  Anyway you get the point, I think the dry ice was just another gimmick but in terms of taste, the ice-cream was indeed very soft and was surprisingly good with the bacon bits.
    03J1G8E9DBB3817EAAF138m.jpg


    I went to Tai Hang again the following weekend but this time there was a long line-up outside the shop, and I'm never a fan of queues PLUS the cute cashier wasn't there this time...I will be back.


    Soft Creme, G/F 6-7 Shepherd Street, Tai Hang, +852 2370 3205
    District:  Tai Hang

  22. 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.

    IF you found this article helpful and want to try out Guava Pass, please do sign up via my link here and get some discounts.

    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,

  23. sightseeing-montreal-6-150x150.jpg

    Montreal is my favourite city in Canada (only in the summer though, ’cause the winters there are way too cold for me). I’ve only been to Montreal a few times, but it’s honestly such a magical city. From the architecture to the food to the history, you really can’t go wrong with a short or long visit. This was the final stop on my 10-day Canadian East Coast road trip this past summer and the three nights/four days we were incredible. Here is my (very condensed) three-day photo journal of sightseeing Montreal.

    The beautiful buildings

    sightseeing-montreal-3-683x1024.jpg sightseeing-montreal-4-1024x683.jpg sightseeing-montreal-9-1024x683.jpg sightseeing-montreal-10-1024x683.jpg

    You honestly can’t walk more than a block without stumbling on beautiful, historic buildings with a whole lot of character. While Toronto has a few areas with plenty of ‘old’ buildings, Montreal seems to be filled with a unique charm thanks to these structures. Although I couldn’t tell you what went on inside, they sure caught my eye.

    Old Port Montreal

    sightseeing-montreal-5-1024x683.jpg sightseeing-montreal-7-1024x683.jpg

    Walk down to the Old Port of Montreal where you can stroll along the water. In the summer, there’s plenty going on (this is where we stumbled upon a mac n cheese festival!). Browse the souvenir stalls, grab a bite to eat at one of the food trucks, hop on the observation wheel for a ride around, or zipline across the harbour. Keep heading down along the harbour, where you’ll eventually come upon the Historical Clock Tower. If you’re not in the mood to spend the day walking, rent a bicycle from one of the many rental stations found throughout the city.

    Pedestrian-only streets

    sightseeing-montreal-11-1024x683.jpg sightseeing-montreal-12-1024x683.jpg sightseeing-montreal-13-1024x683.jpg

    Montreal is home to an impressive (and much appreciated) number of pedestrian-only streets that are filled with bars, souvenir shops, cafes, etc. Although they do feel a tad too touristy at times, the historic buildings and cobblestone walkways seem to keep your mind off that. Grab a pint and a bite to eat at one of the pubs before buying a few cheesy souvenirs.

    Odds and ends

    sightseeing-montreal-1-1024x683.jpg sightseeing-montreal-2-1024x683.jpg sightseeing-montreal-8-1024x683.jpg

    While I was in Montreal I saw some beautiful murals painted on the walls of buildings. The one above was found just down the street from Schwartz’s Deli. As I’ve mentioned before, there are a bunch of festivals that happen throughout the year in Montreal (especially in the summer) and we just so happened to be there during the Just For Laughs festival, which was definitely a good laugh. Though I’m not exactly sure I agree with it, you can take a tour around Old Montreal in a horse-drawn carriage if you’re feeling fancy.

    Have I convinced you to visit Montreal yet?

  24. Big Wave Bay, Sai Kung

    Wondering where to find a place in HK to really relax and unwind? Love camping or hiking? This is Hong Kong’s little paradise. It’s a bit of a trek to get there, but it’s worth it. The photos below were taken on two separate occasions.

    The first was at the start of November, beginning of winter, the weather was beautiful! The water was cold but not too cold for a quick dip. The second time was at the end of June and not advisable because of the heat. It was more like a beach holiday than a photography outing; the group of people I went with were all part of the Hong Kong Photography Club. Both occasions, we camped over night to capture sunset, night and sunrise.

    Big Wave Bay in Sai Kung is the total opposite of Big Wave Bay on Hong Kong Island. You are more likely to see cows than you are to see crowds of surfers and bikini clad models!
