  1. 今天是中秋節,先祝大家佳節愉快、喜慶團圓!雖然今個中秋天色只是一般,但也無損兩兄妹的歡樂心情,特別是中秋一連放5天假的Chloe,每天都安排了不同活動,今天先分享過去週六日的豐富美食 + 玩樂行程!^o^

     

    IMG_9355.JPG

     

    8月尾一聚後,Chloe對啓明萬分掛念,就趁中秋前夕約在 YOHO Mall 吃飯了!佳節在即 + 上週日打風,場內的中菜嚴重爆滿,我們靈機一轉決定再訪 B. Duck Cafe,反正三小無猜在暑期前後腳去了黃金海岸酒店參加 B.Duck 住宿計劃,再見黃鴨一定很高興!

     

    IMG_9222.jpg

     

    IMG_9214.jpg IMG_9226.jpg

     

    這裡要自己找位,幸運是來到不久就有位;三位小朋友對著一系列的 B. Duck 美食,愛不釋手呢!這裡的食物不算太貴,如三色飯糰 $45、B. Duck 牛肉漢堡 $86、連飲品通粉套餐 $86,其中個人認為通粉味道不錯,所以這晚點了兩份~

     

    IMG_9225.jpg

     

    刻意了留了肚吃甜品,士多啤梨窩夫 ($53) 及巨大的 朱古力珍寶芭菲 ($99) 賣相及味道都不錯,後者尤其得到朱古力妹妹歡心,追著吃了好多好多啊!連同早上的跆拳道班、下午的游水,好充實的一天~~~

     

    IMG_9223.jpgIMG_9227.jpg

     

    IMG_9230.jpg

     

    而週日上完教會後,我們就到 康怡廣場,參加由康怡學林 Little Cosmos Language & Art Centre 的「樂滿中秋:創意燈籠工作坊」,讓兩兄妹學習製作傳統紙燈籠!不知大家有否同感,紙燈籠除了比膠燈籠環保,也更漂亮好看一些,尤其是發揮創意將之變身成動物後~

     

    IMG_9310.JPG

     

    大概是在中秋前夕,當日創意燈籠工作坊的反應非常熱鬧,不少家庭都在 shopping 後憑單據參加 workshop,場內熱鬧不得了!還好導師人士充足,可以好好照顧每一位學員需要。

     

    IMG_9308.JPG

     

    兩兄妹參加的是 Dinosaur 燈籠製作班,其實就是為燈籠加上恐龍裝飾!導師會派發不同顏色的龍身、龍翼、龍眼(不是水果啦!XD)、龍牙及龍腳趾,讓小朋友自己配搭襯色,並發掉創意填上顏色/畫上花紋~

     

    IMG_9315.JPG

     

    IMG_9322.JPG

     

    過程中,導師會以示範、合作等方法,協助年齡較小的小朋友完成燈籠。媽媽在一邊細心觀察,明顯Chloe是比較傳統守規,她的龍與 Sample 照片有九成相似,不過燈籠則換上了自己喜愛的粉紅色,可見她也不是一成不變。

     

    IMG_9338.JPG

     

    Matthew就創意無邊了,除了大膽撞色選用同色系的龍眼(對不起,我又笑了 XD)及龍身,又將龍牙反轉成暴 (怒) 龍,這位左撇子小朋友真是特別不一樣!要多花心思了解及教導。

     

    IMG_9345.JPG

     

    IMG_9347.JPG

     

    當龍都畫好組裝好後,就可以貼上紙燈籠,之後就算大功告成啦!如是年齡較大的小朋友,在45分鐘的 Workshop 內,甚至可以為燈籠紙面加上佈置;總之,每個燈籠都是獨一無二的成品,其實小朋友又何嚐不是呢?

     

    IMG_9355.JPG

     

    兩兄妹的合照後,同時也送上兩兄妹合照時戲弄爸爸,故意以燈籠擋著爸媽的趣怪照片;又,這次康怡及 Little Cosmos 的工作坊真心好棒,希望來年都要繼續啊!

     

    IMG_9359.JPGWhatsApp%2BImage%2B2018-09-23%2Bat%2B15.10.38.jpeg

     

    完成燈籠 Workshop 後,爸爸與Matthew要去練鼓,媽媽則帶同 Chloe,重訪美美的金鐘星街 Maison ES 嘆下午茶,因為另一位的親愛的日本友人也訪港啦~

     

    IMG_9375.JPG

     

    充滿法式風情的小餐館與法式設計珠寶品牌 Didier Dubot 合作,推出了以電影 “Midnight in Paris” 爲設計靈感的 "The Raining Paris" Afternoon Tea ($350位/$688兩位),自然成了我們目標!

     

    IMG_9379.jpgIMG_9381.jpg

     

    下午茶先有兩杯 Charles de Fere, Réserve Rosé Dry 當 Welcome Drink, 讓人一來就沉醉在美好的粉紅氣泡中;Chloe就清純的喝著果汁,不久後其他食物及飲品也上檯了~

     

    IMG_9392.jpg

     

    下午茶另外包括自選咖啡/茶,友人選的 Grand Earl Grey 是我的心水最愛,不過喝了多次,這天換成 Rose Latte (+$18),成品十分漂亮,味道香醇細緻、芳香討好,會推介給啡迷的~

     

    IMG_9388.jpgIMG_9389.jpg

     

    食物方面有四款鹹點、四款甜點,加上 Rose Petal & Plain Scones 各二。其中鬆餅份量不小,以平日胃口不可能吃完,但這裡的鬆餅十分香脆又富牛油香,配上 Maison ES 玫瑰果醬及濃縮忌廉,太好了,結果很難得全部4件都吃光!

     

    IMG_9397.jpg

     

    先介紹鹹點,首先是 Purple Potato Frites served with Mayo,外脆內軟糯、香口微甜不油的紫薯條,配上蛋黃醬,理所當然成為 Chloe 最愛,看妹妹的表情就知她有多喜歡這組合!

     

    IMG_9399.jpg

     

    IMG_9393.jpg

     

    接著 Smoked Salmon Gougère 煙熏三文魚法式芝士球、Jam Bun & Camembert Crepe 果醬包卡蒙伯爾芝士薄煎餅,以及杯裝的 Foie Gras Mousse & Cassis Cup 鵝肝慕斯黑醋栗杯,都很好吃兼有著濃濃法式風情,邊吃邊喝下玫瑰氣酒,感覺曼妙。

     

    IMG_9398.jpg

     

    甜點則有 Lavender & Dark Chocolate Mille Feuille 薰衣草黑巧克力法式千層酥、Pink Frosted Earl Grey Madeleine 粉紅色糖霜馬德蓮貝殼蛋糕、Sesame Macaroon with Strawberry Ganache Creme 黑芝麻草莓甘納許奶油馬卡龍,以及 Oreo & Coconut Tart 奧利奧椰子餡餅,全部都輕甜不膩,配上帶玫瑰香的 Rose Latte 十分完美。

     

    IMG_9404.jpg

     

    凡享用此下午茶的客人,均可獲贈 DIDIER DUBOT Mon Paris 手鏈一條,絕對值回票價!然而禮品數量有限,送完即止,所以想吃最好趁早啊~

     

    IMG_9405.jpg

     

    上週日打風關係,很多的約會都擠在一起,所以下午茶後雖然不餓,但又要趕回元朗與中同一起聚餐。中菜是不作考慮了,這晚去了 Chef's Stage Cafe,這間餐廳最初在 樓下 開業,後來發揚光大搬到 富達廣場變大舖,最近又搬了回來,親切倍添。

     

    6154a8d9-0e8a-48ba-a149-97c1f8bb05f7.JPG

     

    IMG_9441.JPG

     

    吃完下午茶的媽媽及妹妹根本不餓,所以吃甚麼都是次要(但也強力推介一下這裡的青口,非常好吃!);這晚兩母女的焦點,都落在為食 Dum B 身上,之後還忍不住帶他上樓玩/分享月餅,其超級為食樣笑壞了一眾叔叔姨姨,也讓Chloe念念不忘,直吵要假期再探他!

     

    IMG_9432.jpgIMG_9438.JPG

     

    來到今天也有豐富的節目,不多講了,總之祝大家都要開開心心!

    さてさて、今日は中秋節!
    香港では今日は家族でお月見して月餅食べて、明日は祝日。子供も夜更かしや夜遊びが許される日です。
    中秋節は春節(旧正月)と同じくらい、家族で過ごすことを大切にしている日です。
    そんな日に私は・・・飛びます!香港へ!

    中秋節を香港で過ごしたことはありますが、結構久々なので遅い遅い夏休みを取って行くことにしました。
    中秋節の香港の風景や気になるお店、最新スポットなどいろいろ巡ってきますね。
    日ごろの行いがよかったのか(繁忙期が終わってもズルズルと仕事が忙しかっただよぉ)、台風も滞在中は来ないようなので平和な中秋節が過ごせそうです。

    滞在中、ライブ配信も考えております。
    FacebookもしくはInstagramで告知しますので、よろしければご覧ください。
    (以下のリンク先をクリックしてください)

    香港と日本とで同じ月を見ながらお祝いしましょう。

    では、行って来ます~!

  3. Whenever you go to have Chinese roast, you will always hear chop chop [Chopping] in the background!!
    The chop chop noise is meat being chopped up on the chopping board so I guess this is why they called Chop Chop!!
    Chop chop also means hurry up or to be quick in English.

    0BXNIYC590E85662D81B5Cl.jpg
    0BXNJ16E5E323224F68759l.jpg

    0BXNJ4FE61FFDCFEB25C72l.jpg

    The joint is located on the corner with two entrances and meats are displayed nicely at the counter.
    0BXNJ29BD3471C0220086Dl.jpg

    0BXNJ37D126599C96CB8F4l.jpg

    There is an English Menu which make it expat friendly.
    0BXNJ0D6EC56F8F7E2AC7El.jpg

    Chop Chop's signature dish is the Roast Pork Belly Rice where it first debuted in Stephen Chows God of cookery film aka Sorrowful Rice (#黯然銷魂飯).
    It comes with egg and soup as a set.
    The rice is a little different as they use premium rice which is harvested once a year at Wuchang city along with some wild rice.
    As for the eggs, these come from young hens which produce smaller but nutritious eggs.
    40301510_2166410623575495_6227198496937589410_n.jpg

    It was definitely a fulfilling meal as the meat was lightly charred on the edges but perfectly tender and moist.
    Also tried the Chop Chop Char Siew which was leaner compared to the belly.
    0BXNJ52EF94DF62DDF6C7Bl.jpg

    It really depends on which cut you like, for me I preferred the leaner cut as it was meatier and the charred edges were crispy with a slight stickiness.

    To go with drinks, the the Crispy pork belly was just the treat.
    40470286_286846551916128_8496482246744261537_n.jpg

    0BXNIX4B501F11AE6815E0l.jpg

    The chef definitely had perfect chopping skills as you can see the pork is uniformly square with clean cuts and sharp 90 degree edges !!!!!
    The meat and fat was evenly defined so each piece was moreish with a nice crispy texture. The roast was so good that I got some takeaway.
    0BXNIZ18F11B753CDE6FD3l.jpg

    0BXNJ65111617A271C0434l.jpg

    I like the way they use paper boxes like GoodBBQ as you won't get any CFC odour in the food.
    It is always good to see Chinese roast going to the next level by becoming modern and presentable.

    謝謝奇華,讓我家小朋友有機會在今年親手製作月餅,而且更是大人和小朋友都喜愛的小丸子造型奶皇月餅!

    IMG_8026.jpg

    卡通人物長不大,小丸子也不例外,《櫻桃小丸子》卡通在我小時候已經播映,可說是陪著我們這一代長大。到我長大成人,我的小朋友也到了劇中小丸子的年紀,看著小丸子朋友們和小瞳小名一起,感覺真有點複雜(笑)。

    39442874.jpg

    這個中秋,奇華餅家除了推出了小丸子造型奶皇月餅和一系列相關精品,那把雨傘小丸子尤其可愛,據說一推出已經售罄!最近終於限量返貨,想買的可以去碰碰運氣啊。

    IMG_6926.jpg

    想吃小丸子造型奶皇月餅,不一定要買現成的,自己做可能更有意思。在中秋節前奇華在灣仔旗艦店奇華工作坊都會舉辦小丸子奶皇月餅班課程,每人可以製作帶走8個迷你小丸子造型奶皇月餅,造型更可自由選擇,包括不設零售的小丸子爺爺嫲嫲造型!

    IMG_6964.jpg

    除此之外,工作坊裡有大量小丸子卡通人物紙板,讓各位粉絲可以過足合照癮。

    IMG_6940.jpgIMG_6930.jpg

    最近奇華的主題是「快樂製造」,這個主題和小丸子可說十分相符,大家也要在這裡製造快樂啊。

    IMG_7417.jpgIMG_7412.jpg

    月餅班地點就在灣仔旗艦店2樓奇華工作坊。一如以往,每位學員都會收到一份製作食譜,不過這一次和之前有點不同,因為這一次的食譜會放在小丸子folder中!大家要好好珍藏啊!

    IMG_7422.jpg

    由奇華專業導師開始介紹材料和示範製作過程,我們就在旁邊留心聽講學習。

    IMG_8022.jpg

    先準備好奶皇餡,再準備月餅皮,詳細步驟不在此介紹了,大家有興趣還是去報個名吧。另外,聽著講解,發覺製作方法和之前在奇華參加過的月餅班有不少分別,到底那個方法較好?個人認為,主要還是看你家的設備,選一個適合自己的方法去做吧。

    IMG_8023.jpg

    奶皇餡和月餅皮都準備好,就可以包成月餅,和以模具做出小丸子造型月餅!這個步驟也和之前有點不同,以前用的都是木製模具,但體積大,收藏也不方便。導師不說也不知道原來現在推出了這種膠製月餅模具,而且更可提供照片自行訂造,只要不太複雜、線條清晰,基本上也可做到。這一次的小丸子模具就是一個好例子了。

    IMG_7061.jpgIMG_7060.jpg

    接下來當然是我們這班學生的實際製作時間!從材料攪拌開始,兩位小朋友能勝任嗎?

    IMG_7065.jpg

    IMG_7089.jpg

    答案當然是正面的,小瞳小名已經長大了,和之前相比,這一次月餅班很多工作都能自己做完。值得一提是這月餅班容許小孩子參加,所以工序設定都不會很難,而且也有工作人員幫忙,十分適合親子參加。

    IMG_7088.jpg

    好了!終於輪到以模具「吸」出小丸子造型,這就是模具的內貌了!

    IMG_7093.jpg

    小丸子模具做出來的月餅,未焗前輪廓比我想像中更突出,而且製作簡單,非常有趣!

    IMG_8027.jpg

    然後就可以掃蛋漿,放進焗爐先焗一次了!

    IMG_7203.jpgIMG_7201.jpg

    若想卡通圖案更加突出,可於焗好第一次後再在凸出的花紋圖案上輕輕塗上少許糖漿,再放回焗爐裡小焗片刻。

    IMG_7214.jpg

    最後的製成品!我們焗了共16個小丸子月餅,以小名這個小玉月餅焗得最好,輪廓最突出,真的很漂亮呢!

    IMG_7242.jpgIMG_7210.jpg

    最後把焗好的小丸子月餅放進盒子就可以帶回家,連盒也是特別準備的小丸子盒子,裡裡外外都是那麼開心!

    IMG_7169.jpg

    最後,當然少不了試食一下今年奇華的各款月餅。

    IMG_7592.jpg

    今年可供購買的小丸子月餅共有四款,分別是小丸子蛋黃奶皇月小玉芝士奶皇月花輪蛋黃奶皇月野口朱古力奶皇月。幾款味道往年都有推出過,換上小丸子新裝更有新鮮感。

    IMG_7611.jpgIMG_7623.jpg

    之前提及過,月餅班可選擇製作的月餅造型比能購買的多,看看老師的製成品,除了剛剛提到的四款,還包括小丸子的媽媽、爺爺和嫲嫲,好可愛!

    IMG_7591.jpg

    若想試試新口味,今年則有檸檬奶皇月松子蜂蜜奶皇月,前者只限定灣仔旗艦店供應,後者則可在鴛鴦奶皇盒裝找到。另外兩者都可在灣仔旗艦店購買即食現烤版本,即焗即吃的現烤奶皇月把檸檬和蜂蜜香氣發揮得淋漓盡致,吸引!

    IMG_7413.jpg

    卡通crossover月餅除了造型吸引,更有精美禮盒包裝,收到的人一定喜歡。

    IMG_8020.jpg

    自己新鮮製作的月餅永遠好吃,有可愛的小丸子陪伴更是開心快樂,雖然今年的奇華工作坊月餅班已經額滿,但來年還是有機會的,不想再一次錯過,大家要留意時間表了。

    39397622.jpg

    執筆之時,《櫻桃小丸子》原作者櫻桃子(三浦美紀)已經因病離世,雖然小時候看櫻桃小丸子的機會不多(印象中播出時我已是中學生),但還是十分感謝櫻桃子老師多年來為大家帶來的歡樂,感謝妳讓大家有一個美好的童年。

  5. 說到倫敦很有名的餐廳,Burger & Lobster肯定榜上有名,不過它在脫歐後價錢升得不可思議,所以完全不划算。除了Burger & Lobster外,Big Easy都是同類的餐廳,價錢亦比較低,自然是要轉場囉。

    canary-wharf-eating-and-drinking-big-easy-ss15-7-741x417.jpg


    Big Easy有每日的不同優惠,這個是當天的無限量Bar.B.Q肉,如果想吃優惠龍蝦,星期四是龍蝦跟牛扒餐,這還真夠罪惡感…

    IMG_9216_%25E8%25AA%25BF%25E6%2595%25B4%25E5%25A4%25A7%25E5%25B0%258F.JPG

    想吃龍蝦但不需要牛扒的,不一定要星期四來,因為它也有普通的龍蝦餐。

    IMG_9217_%25E8%25AA%25BF%25E6%2595%25B4%25E5%25A4%25A7%25E5%25B0%258F.JPG

    Big Easy比Burger & Lobster好的地方,絕對是這裡的餐是包括飲品,像Burger & Lobster原價已經貴幾鎊,叫一杯飲品又幾鎊,這就差十幾鎊可以在這裡吃半個餐了。朋友選了這裡的沙冰Cocktail,而我就貪多選啤酒,這自家品牌啤酒有2Pint,即是超過1公升﹗汽水我也沒一晚喝1公升耶﹗

    IMG_9218_%25E8%25AA%25BF%25E6%2595%25B4%25E5%25A4%25A7%25E5%25B0%258F.JPG

    要說Big Easy比較差的地方,可能是賣相吧?那有人將兩邊龍蝦分開擺的…正常人也不會亂擺一通吧?撇除賣相不談,Big Easy跟Burger & Lobster的Pounder龍蝦,好像Burger & Lobster稍大一點,或者是我剛好遇到大隻的吧。不過這裡的龍蝦因為有加上細蔥調味油,比Burger & Lobster的蒸或燒龍蝦都來得惹味,而且還有粗身薯條吃,完勝﹗

    FullSizeRender_1_%25E8%25AA%25BF%25E6%2595%25B4%25E5%25A4%25A7%25E5%25B0%258F1.jpg

    然後是星期一優惠無限肉祭unlimited meat works,同樣地賣相真的很抱歉,Brown Sauce的深啡色加上大量肉的關係,視覺上毫無觀賞性可言。材料有北卡羅萊納豬肉、燻燒雞肉、聖路易斯豬肋骨、燻焗豆、粟米鬆餅,未食已飽還能夠無限添食,難怪外國人都這麼肥了。

    FullSizeRender_%25E8%25AA%25BF%25E6%2595%25B4%25E5%25A4%25A7%25E5%25B0%258F.jpg

    至於好不好吃?我覺得燻雞是最好吃的,除了有煙燻香外,雞肉沒有被Brown Sauce淹沒,所以味道最純粹。當然豬肋骨等等都不錯,但大量醬汁有點分不清是醬好吃還是肉好吃了。鬆餅就有點抱歉,根本不鬆又乾身,雖然這東西我沒有預期過會好吃,不過一直吃肉會很膩,吃一口鬆餅稍稍能去掉油膩感也還好,不過始終是澱粉質很容易飽。

    所以到最後我有沒有無限肉祭?這個半份跟半邊龍蝦再一公升啤酒食完都不能動了還能追加嗎?

    在這裡飲不飽也食醉你,廿幾鎊就有交易,連龍蝦也吃得到,實在划算,忽然覺得Burger & Lobster價錢好貴啊…

  6. craft-beer-150x150.jpg

    A couple of years ago, we would have said the craft beer scene in Hong Kong is starting to explode. Well, we can now safely say it has exploded and is here to stay. There’s even a Craft Beer Association of Hong Kong. It’s not just bars serving craft beer, there are breweries popping up all over the city, from Kwai Chung to Kennedy Town. Many do brewery tours where you can sample a bit of everything that they brew, so make it your mission to check them out over several weekends…or perhaps do a crazy pub crawl and hit a bunch up in one night. Read on for the ultimate guide to craft beer in Hong Kong.

    Second Draft

    On the ground floor of the cool hotel and neighbourhood hangout Little Tai Hang you’ll find Second Draft. The much buzzed about gastropub pours beers from celebrated local brewers Young Master and Carbon Brews, which you can sip alongside award-winning chef May Chow’s Hong Kong-inspired menu. Keep an eye out for their rotating guest tap brews, featuring some of the best international craft beer from New Zealand, Denmark and more.

    Where: G/F, Little Tai Hang, 98 Tung Lo Wan Road, Tai Hang
    Contact: 2656 0232

     

    Little Creatures

    Little Creatures brews craft beer daily in an impressive venue — when you walk in you can’t miss the 5 hectolitre brewery producing various beers served up in front at the bar, or in the large dining area. Their beer, like the signature Pale Ale, have unique key flavours such as citrus, nectarine and burnt toffee. Grab a bottle, along with a Bright Ale, Original Pilsner, IPA or Rogers Beer, as they´re sold to take home too.

    Where:  Shop 1, G/F New Fortune House, 5A New Praya, Kennedy Town
    Contact:  2833 5611 or info@littlecreatures.hk

     

    Craft Brew & Co.

    When the motto is “No Carlsberg. No Stella. No San Miguel.” then you know the bar is serious about craft beer. Craft Brew & Co., with three locations in Hong Kong, know their stuff and pour superb craft beer. If that weren’t enough, they also grill some damn fine gourmet sausages that are lean and made with all-natural casings. It’s the perfect accompaniment to their light and golden Summer Ale, or go for a Bohemian Pale Ale, Liberty IPA or Kung Fu Lager. Don’t know where to start? Book a tasting session (minimum 6 people) and learn the style, flavour and aroma of each beer.

    Where: G/F, 17 Old Bailey Street, Central; 36 High Street, Sai Ying Pun; G/F, 27-31 Catchick Street, Kennedy Town
    Contact: 2885 0821 (Central); 2559 0498 (Sai Ying Pun); 2246 8782 (Kennedy Town) or info@craftbrew.com.hk

     

    COEDO Taproom

    COEDO, an award-winning brewery from Saitama, Japan, serves craft beer at their Causeway Bay Taproom, the brewery’s first overseas venue. Featuring 12 taps, including all of their year-round beers, plus seasonal, limited and exclusive ones, you’ll happily spend a night here sampling the suds and nibbling on authentic Saitama-style yakitori and other savoury snacks.

    Where: Shop C, G/F, 50-56 Paterson Street, Causeway Bay
    Contact: 2619 9011 or info@thirstybrothers.com.hk

     

    Pazzeria Italian Brewery

    Who knew a place in Mong Kok would be a prime spot for sampling craft beer, Italian-style?  Pazzeria Italian Brewery has authentic Italian craft beers, bottled and on tap — 16 taps in fact. There’s also a Central location, and both spots pour mainly Italian craft beers, but there’s other European beers to try, and some mean Italian food too. Suggestion, if we may? Keep the focus on the beer and tuck into a cheese board with a variety of cold cuts and cheese, paired with a Birrificio Gaia IPA or a robust Tre Fontane Tripel.

    Where: G/F 19 Hak Po Street, Mong Kok, Kowloon; 5 Elgin Street, Central
    Contact: 2506 0016 (Mong Kok); 2540 7988 (Central)

     

    K Pub

    Here’s a nice little bar only a hop and a skip away from Kennedy Town MTR station. Great for a chill night catching up with a mate…and getting acquainted with the more than 30 types of craft beer from around the world K Pub pours daily. Decent pizza and burger specials too mean this may become a weekly outing.

    TAP – The Ale Project

    When a day of haggling at Ladies Market has finally done your head in, seek some respite at nearby TAP – The Ale Project to cool off. Billed as a gastropub, and known for having one of the biggest selections of Hong Kong craft beer on tap, they pair carefully curated beers with a food menu featuring artisanal bread as the centerpiece.

    The Globe

    An old favourite with British expats in Hong Kong, everyone should get to know The Globe, not just for some of the best fish and chips this side of England, but an excellent beer selection. They feature rotating guest taps, a great excuse to come often to taste the changing brews, as is the generous happy hour, running  from 9.00am to 8.00pm. Those wanting to know their malts from their ambers can sign up for a tutored beer tasting, tailored for a couple of friends or a large group.

When your fingers are free from posting pics and sipping pints, dabble in some of the Asian-inspired cuisine on hand as well.

    Cheers The Tap Room

    An unassuming wee spot in Mong Kok with local and international craft beers on tap, where the staff is just as friendly as the clientele. And as it’s mainly a young crowd, there’s a good chance no one will be yelling out “Norm!” when you walk in (older readers will understand). Good for a beer flight to try a bit of everything, and a “craft pizza” to soak it all up.

    Contact: 2341 5999

     

    The Beer Bay – Central Pier 3 & 4

    You probably won’t head here for a night out, as it’s pretty much a small kiosk in the middle of Central piers 3 and 4, but you’ll be thankful for it when you’re waiting to board the ferry on a hot summer day. Despite its size, it has an impressive range of British and American craft beers, and lots of UK crisps to curb those salty cravings that often come with beer drinking.

    Where: Pier 3 and Pier 4, Central Ferry Pier
    Contact: 3481 7290

     

    Young Master Brewery

    While not set up for dining and drinking, this multi award-winning brewery does allow for sampling their craft beers on Saturday tours, and it’s definitely worth booking as these guys are known for starting the craft brewing movement in Hong Kong.

    Where: G/F, Sungib Industrial Centre, 53 Wong Chuk Hang Road, Wong Chuk Hang
    Contact: 2783 8907 or info@youngmasterales.com

    Gweilo Beer

    HK expats have certainly heard the term “Gweilo” by now, but here it’s presented in a fun, fresh way — through refreshing beer. Known as “foreign devil”, the term has evolved to gentler definitions over time (plain old “foreigner”), and each bottle of Gweilo beer will too evolve, with the phrase on the label changing meaning over time. The Fo Tan-based brewery makes session-style ales ranging between 4% and 6%, like their IPA, brewed with European malt and a secret blend of South Pacific and American hops. Buy it and others online or in stores across the city.

    Where: Fo Tan
    Contact: info@gweilobeer.com

    Contact: 3996 9740 or info@heroesbeerco.com

The brewery in Kwai Hing where they make their staple brews (like Hong Kong Bastard Imperial IPA or Quit Your Job!, and other amusing names) has a production capacity of more than 5,000 liters, allowing the award-winning brewers to tackle numerous experimental single batch brews. Have a taste Friday evenings on a brewery tour from 5.30pm to 7.30 pm (no booking needed).

  9. 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,

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

    IMG_20180725_224241.jpg

    Inside, you get crinkle cut crisp and they were extremely spicy.
    They tasted like spring onion crisps with a fiery kick but after you get used to the spiciness, they were quite good.
    IMG_20180726_005942.jpg

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

  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.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Probably will go next time with my family J

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

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

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

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

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

    20170129_200146.jpg
    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


    * * * * * * * * * *

  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!

    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!

    "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!

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

    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.

    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...

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

    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.

    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!

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

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

    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

    Hi everyone, thanks a lot for being with me and my little blog through these years. I have a bad news and a good news for you all!

    This blog will be shut down. I will keep all the posts here, but there will be no update and no maintenance since now.

    Good news is, I have already started a new blog which have a new and nicer layout. The new blog is no longer about food. I have too many stories from my trips around the world to be shared with you! Of course, food and drink will be one part of my personal journey, but you will find a fresher and more interesting site there.

  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.
