  1. 澳洲回來後,總有份揮之不去的懶洋洋感,來到週末尤其明顯... 不過今天寫的 Alma x Buffy 下午茶,既輕鬆可愛又定價超值,只$268兩位,非常樂意與大家開心分享!

     

    IMG_5210.jpg

     

    Alma 坐落海運大廈3樓,坐擁開揚迷人維港景色;然而週五正好起下傾盆大雨,景色變得一片朦朧,可惜了~不過放半就兩兄妹本來就心情開朗,見到門口可愛的黃鴨女 Buffy(也即 B. Duck 的妹妹)馬上笑遂顏開,那份快樂也感染了身邊人! =)

     

    IMG_5200.JPG

     

    除了門口大黃鴨,店內牆壁、餐墊,甚至是咕𠱸都滿是 Buffy 身影,簡直令人童心大爆發!喜歡 B. Duck 及 Buffy 的朋友來到,請控制自己不要尖叫,改留下精神瘋狂拍照/自拍吧~

     

    IMG_5191.jpg

     

     

     

     

    我們坐的位置很快變成圖畫樂園(餐墊反轉就是畫紙),所以下午茶上檯後,先搬到另一邊的二人檯拍照,同時也是防止兩兄妹在拍照期間偷襲可愛的茶點~

     

    IMG_5204.JPG

     

    下午茶原包括四款甜點、四款鹹點,全部一式兩份,另外還有每位自選咖啡/茶,$268兩位實在抵食。而且每兩位下午茶餐,還會贈送可愛 Buffy 禮品,是精緻的手機扣,更加超值!

     

    IMG_5210.jpg

     

    不過我們沒為意原來下午茶碟漏上了 迷你安格斯牛肉芝士漢堡包,因此後來直接送到兩兄妹身處的餐檯時,當然就是「送牛入虎口」... 面對美味的漢堡,兩兄妹與 Buffy 的反應差不多,都是「I love burger!」,哈哈~

     

    IMG_5192.JPG

     

    其他鹹點包括鮮美可口的 煎吞拿魚配飛魚籽及芥末醬,瓜味不太難接受、清爽好吃的 千島香檸鮮蝦配日本青瓜,以及可愛又香脆好吃的 Buffy 多士配吞拿魚醬;細心一看,Buffy 連頭花位也做到足,心思太讚了!

     

    IMG_5214.jpg

     

    四款甜點中,最受小朋友歡迎當然是 Buffy 法式馬卡龍,平日英文不錯的Matthew,激動下就指 Macaron 為 Macaroni(通心粉)了!XD 這裡的 葡式蛋撻 從來都好吃,下午茶也有兩件真開心;另外 雪山芒果忌廉泡芙  紅莓蛋糕白朱古力脆 也比預期中好吃,都清光了的~

     

    IMG_5213.jpg

     

    加上足料的 Cappuccino 及凍檸茶,兩個人吃應該飽了,但帶上大食兩兄妹,還是散點兩款美食分享吧~首先是橄欖油蒜片蝦 ($158),一客只有4隻,但每隻蝦都非常巨大又鮮香,非常美味;吃完蝦,剩下的蒜片及橄欖油用來蘸多士,也是人間美味,不要錯過!

     

    IMG_5217.jpg

     

    另外少不了重溫經典美味的 葡式烤乳豬 ($250),多年來還是那麼皮脆肉香,邊吃又邊想起兩年半前的甜蜜蜜 平安夜約會;最妙是價錢也未有變,果然是海港城內美味又抵食之選!

     

    IMG_5216.jpg

     

    最後,留意下午茶只供應至8月31日,而且禮品送完即止哦。明天再分享更多親子食記吧~~~

  2. From now until the 9th August, Satay Inn at all Sino Hotels will be serving highlights from The Fullerton Hotel Singapore headed by their guest chefs Kelvin Wong and his team.
    You can also catch them at the hotels on the following schedule:

    City Garden Hotel: Now - 23/6/2018
    The Royal Hotel and Pacific Towers - 24/6/2018 - 27/6/2018

    I was there on the 22nd and tried the Tasting Menu ($328 per person) which can also be ordered a la carte.
    My favourite was the Kambing soup (lamb soup) which was strong with lots of spices and comforting.
    I liked the Otak Otak as it was made with Mackerel and the Crayfish coated in salted egg yolk sauce.

    For desserts, I loved the Durian Bubar Terigu which was not too sweet and packed with healthy ingredients.

    Here are the dishes that they will be serving.

    Crispy Pork Rolled Bean Curd Loh Bak with Cucumber and Red Onion

    不經不覺,北角星級中菜廳「粵」已經十週年,更厲害的是當中連續五年「粵」都獲得米芝蓮一星榮譽。

    IMG_7903.jpg

    為慶祝餐廳十週年,「粵」特意推出了以粵菜十種烹調技巧處理的「粵菜名饌宴」,讓大家好好品嚐粵菜真味。十種技巧分別是煎、炆、蒸、炒、燉、煮、炸、燴、煀、扣,這天受到公關邀請,率先來到「粵」試試其中的幾款,感受一下粵菜的千變萬化。

    IMG_7996.jpg

    第一道菜式「煎」,濃杏汁煎花膠已經先聲奪人,原片大花膠要煎香但不煎濃,時間和火候非常重要,「粵」的行政總廚賴正成師傅率領的團隊就有這份功力。最驚喜的是伴花膠的特濃雞汁和杏汁,這特濃雞汁之前已經在這裡試過,是以原隻鮮雞煮後只取雞油雞汁而成,和杏汁竟比奇地匹配,絕對色香味俱全,精彩。

    IMG_7866.jpg

    第二道菜是「炆」的炆鮑魚鵝掌,也是很多香港人喜愛的菜式。鮑魚經四小時炆煮後非常軟腍,和充滿金華火腿香的鵝掌配合得絲絲入扣,是粵菜中的經典菜式。

    IMG_8040.jpg

    接下來是「炒」,晶瑩剔透的玉簪玻璃蝦球,事前功夫一點都不少。師傅先把蝦背穿上火腿條、冬菇條和幼菜心,讓蝦球看起來像枝玉簪。接下來炒製也是真功夫,師傅要好好控製火候,才能把蝦球炒得晶瑩爽嫩,而又能保持玉簪形狀。爽彈蝦球帶點金華火腿的咸香,讓人不忍這麼快吃光光。

    蝦球旁的是「炸」物酥香燒雲腿,是餐廳特意每人一小片準備給我們試試。雲腿先裹後炸,裹衣香脆,咬開咸香四溢,若喜歡雲腿必定滿意。要注意的是正常點菜一客會有數片,怕太咸的話最好等人多少點此菜吧。

    IMG_8041.jpg

    這晚的「煮」,是牛肝菌煮和牛面頰,這道菜的精髓個人覺得是以牛肝菌、西芹、洋蔥、紅蘿蔔等煮成的醬汁。牛面頰先稍作炆煮,然後才和醬汁一同慢煮,讓牛面頰慢慢吸收醬汁,也慢慢變得軟腍,和普遍西餐加入紅酒來煮牛面頰的味道截然不同,但同樣好吃。

    IMG_8093.jpg

    「粵菜名饌宴」的十道菜中,當然少不了一點翠綠。鮮蟹肉燴明珠是「燴」的代表,冬瓜刮成圓球狀的「明珠」,再以蟹肉蟹羔同燴,「明珠」吸引蟹肉湯汁,多吃幾顆也不覺膩。

    IMG_8098.jpg

    最後甜品是仙翁露,據說流行於五、六十年代的香港壽宴之中。我雖不年輕但也從沒聽過試過,「粵」特意採購相關材料,好讓大家能一同慶祝「粵」的十週年壽宴。仙翁米既黑且小但嚼勁十足,有長壽之意,是好意頭的甜品。

    IMG_8102.jpg

    「粵菜名饌宴」由即日起至七月底供應,預先訂座更有折扣優惠,想試的話要把握機會了!

  5. local-food-in-penang-3-150x150.jpg

    If you’re an adventurous foodie who often finds yourself planning a travel itinerary based around all the food you want to try, then Penang is the perfect travel destination for you. The food found in Penang is insanely good, oh-so cheap, and most of it is difficult to find outside the country. Although I had made a stopover for a few days in George Town about five years ago, I never really explored all the local food this area had to offer. With that in mind, I made sure to do research on the regional food I could find in Penang. I ended up planning my days around pit-stops at local food stalls and night markets, and managed to put together this list of all the local food in Penang that I loved and that you must try.

    1. Asam Laksa

    local-food-in-penang-2-1024x1024.jpg

    Asam laksa is arguably the most well known dish from Penang. While many people have tried the creamy version of laksa that is relatively easy to find around the world, asama laksa is unique to Penang and is difficult to come across outside Malaysia. Asam laksa has a sweet, slightly sour taste from the pineapple and mild fish base. You can find asam laksa just about anywhere – this bowl was from a night market in the beach area of Batu Ferringhi and only cost RM4. While the laksa at night markets was fantastic, a highlight for me was heading to Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Koay in George Town (recommended to me by the staff at Hotel Penaga) for a bowl of these insanely delicious noodles.

    2. Cendol

    local-food-in-penang-1-1024x683.jpg

    One of the most famous desserts in Penang is Cendol – an iced dessert made with coconut milk, green rice flour ‘noodles’, red beans, shaved ice, and palm sugar. So famous in fact, that above one of the food stalls (Penang Road Famous Teochew Chendul )selling this dessert on Lebuh Keng Kwee is a massive mural of a man taking a big spoon full of cendol. There is also a stall directly across from it called Penang Road Famous Chendol where I bought a bowl for RM2.90. We were actually told by a local to go to the latter one because the ‘famous’ one’s quality has declined since many tourists visit it anyway. Regardless of which one you go to, this is the perfect roadside treat to cool you off.

    3. Local jelly desserts

    moh-teng-pheow-asam-laksa-penang-6-760x1

    Sticking with the theme of dessert, Malaysia has a variety of local jellied desserts that are popular. I actually didn’t know about this until we went to Moh Teng Pheow Nyonya Koay, where they have a large selection of these homemade desserts for sale. The flavors we tried were: Kuih Bengka – Ubi, Kuih Talam, Pulut Tai Tai (Kaya Kuih), and one Abuk. These desserts weren’t overly sweet, which was certainly appreciated after a heavy meal, and ranged between RM0.60 – RM1.50, and RM3 for the Abuk (the one wrapped in the lotus leaf).

    4. Curry Mee

    local-food-in-penang-3-1024x1024.jpg

    I discovered curry mee rather accidentally when I was trying to eat as much local food as I could possibly consume before my flight. I found this delicious curry mee at Pisa Cafe food market in Bayan Baru. This massive bowl of the most delicious, creamy noodles was only RM4.50 and came loaded with thicker yellow noodles and thin vermicelli noodles, tofu, and cuttlefish balls in a spicy coconut sauce.

    5. Nasi Kandar

    nasi-kandar-georgetown-2-964x1024.jpg

    When I was doing research on the must-try dishes in Penang, nasi kandar came up numerous times with reference to a popular restaurant called Nasi Kandar Line Clear Restaurant. We popped in on one of our first nights in George Town and were welcomed with a mountain (no, literally, there was enough food to feed at least two people) of rice, chicken (you could choose your meat, but one of the staff recommended the roast chicken), fried bitter gourd, okra, green beans, cucumber, and a few other ingredients that I had no clue about. This was one of my favorite dishes I had in Penang and it only cost RM14.30.

    6. Iced Kacang

    local-food-in-penang-5-932x1024.jpg

    This was another surprise dish found in Pisa Cafe on my last night in Penang. Although I had read plenty about Cendol and tried it in George Town, I didn’t hear about this dessert until I was wandering around the food stalls and came upon one selling iced kacang. I asked the lady behind the counter about it and, despite being incredibly full from two big dishes already, I couldn’t leave Penang without trying it. This refreshing dessert was comprised of red beans, grass jelly, nata de coco, and agar hidden under a mound of colorful shaved ice, sweet corn, condensed milk, and a scoop of taro ice cream.

    7. Char Kway Teow

    local-food-in-penang-4-683x1024.jpg

    Char kway teow is another popular dish in Malaysia and can be found at almost any local restaurant or market. I didn’t find this dish as exciting as the others, since I can find it quite easily where I live, but it’s a great dish to order if you’re looking for some simple comfort food. This (rather small) plate of char kway teow was from the night market in Batu Ferringhi for RM5.

    8. Street-side Indian Snacks

    local-food-in-penang-6-1024x683.jpg

    In the heart of George Town you’ll find an eclectic area called Little India. This section of small shops, eateries, and plenty of colorful characters is where you can get your hands on some delicious Indian food. There were a number of food stalls along the road selling a variety of snacks and desserts – I went for the vegetarian samosa (RM0.60) and instantly regretted only buying one. I then went on a mission to find gulab jamun (my favorite Indian dessert) and finally came across a little shop called Mr. Sweets where I filled a bag with 4 pieces of gulab jamun and 5 other mystery sweets that looked delicious for only RM11.90.

  6. Hey everyone! I thought I’d find my way back to love blogging by writing a round-up no other publisher would probably take off my hands. June approaches, which means we are well on our way towards the second half of the year. (gasp!) If maybe like me you like to gym-hop or just haven’t found a gym you love yet, here’s a list of places I really enjoyed.

    Full disclaimer: I’m self-paid on guava, #notspon unless specified, and obvs everyone have different preferences so don’t @ me! If you’d like to drink the Guava juice, please do join via this link so I can save an itsy-bitsy amount of dollars for referring you. Thank you in advance!

    30855139_209692816296723_715391938045830

    Murder in the gym

     

    HIT45

    Literally just pain for 45 minutes straight, but you get it over with and you’d be really proud of yourself. Workouts alternate between special powered-by-your-run treadmills and floor exercises, and depending on the day of the week focuses on different parts of your body e.g. arms or abs & booty.

    1/F, Abdoolally House, 20 Stanley Street, Central

    TORQ

    If you’re a long-time friend/follower, you’ll know I’ve been a day one of TORQ. Being the first spin studio in Hong Kong, TORQ is still killing it with competitive and energetic classes. Your stats will be displayed on the big screen, but don’t worry – you can choose to not do that to yourself. I’m especially a big fan of their spin-off (lol!) HIIT classes off the bike called SWITCH. It’s again just mostly non-stop high intensity floor exercises, but boy is it fun. For half and half action, go for TORQ-SWITCH. Class names do get confusing so make sure you’re booking yourself into the right one.

    3/F, Abdoolally House, 20 Stanley Street, Central

    Crossfit Cavaliers

    This is for people who are serious about their workouts. Who aren’t afraid to lift weights, or *gasp* run outdoors. I go to their Funfit classes which are women-only, and almost always start with a run around the block. Then it’s crossfit-style WOD (or workout of the day for the uninitiated) with a variation of barbell, kettlebell and other exercises involving some sort of weights. Finally, it ends with another run around the block. YEP. Needless to say, it’s INTENSE but I just love how it pushes me beyond my comfort zone.

    533 Queen’s Rd W, Kennedy Town (near HKU station)

    IMG_2741-1024x981.jpg

    Me @ Yoga Dimensions

    Finding zen

    Lemon Drop Studio

    Perched right at the end of Kennedy Town, LDS is something of a favourite of mine. I absolutely love the journey there passing the serene harbourfront, and I ADORE the homey feel that the studio has. Fave classes include the relaxing restorative yoga at the end of the day, or the intense Ab Focus class that, you guessed it, works your abs to the core.

    Shop 2, 37B Cadogan Street, Kennedy Town

    Yoga Dimensions

    I stumbled onto this when I was on KFIT for a bit, and I found their yoga classes to be really awesome. The instructor is strict and pays attention to every detail of your posture, but she doesn’t push you too hard or goes too fast of a pace. If you want to get your foundations right or safely hit the next level, I would recommend checking this studio out.

    Wing Lok Mansion, 162 Wing Lok Street, Sheung Wan

    believe.yoga.wellness

    Similar to Yoga Dimensions, this is another local studio that really doesn’t cut you a lot of slack when it comes to technique. I went to what I thought was a restorative detox class, but ended up getting literally twisted and bent into all sorts of shapes. The result? Genuinely relaxed muscles achievable only through pushing yourself that little bit more. #prettyhurts

    Flat C, 7/F, Kwun Ngan House, No.751 A-C Nathan Road, Mong Kok

    IMG_5907-967x1024.jpg

    Me being extra at Flex’s gorg changing room

    Low key killers

    Anhao Wellness

    Any pilates lovers here? After an accidental 1-on-1 pilates mat class at Anhao (I was the only student who registered), I became a convert. Though it’s no weight lifting or cardio, when done right Pilates easily works you harder than most fitness classes. It practices immense amount of control over tiny and unused muscles, causing you to truly be mindful and get to know yourself. Highly recommend a try.

    5 Ladder Street, Sheung Wan

    Flex Studio

    Xtend Barre is the bomb! It really tests your strength with repeated and small movements inspired by ballet. I took the class first in Flex’s aberdeen studio, then I was hooked and kept going back. Actually I finish Flex’s credit on Guava the fastest every month. Other classes I love include TRX and HIT. It’s just such a calm place… And which other studio brews you coffee in the morning?!

    3&4/F Man Cheung Building, 15-17 Wyndham Street, Central
    Shops 308- 310, One Island South, 2 Heung Yip Road, Wong Chuk Hang

    Barre 2 Barre

    Another favourite of mine in Central. I love Barre bootcamp there when I’m not feeling like I’m up for a workout, though it really works me out without stressing me out with heavy weights and treadmills. Trust me, those weights you’re working in their classes may seem tiny, but you will definitely feel the burn.

    4/F, Cheung Hing Commercial Bldg, 37 Cochrane St, Central

    IMG_5947-1024x1016.jpg

    A scorpio doing a scorpion

    Kowloon dwellers

    Bungee Workout

    You’ve probably seen this on Facebook trending somewhere, but the bungee workout is now in Hong Kong! Though located all the way in San Po Kong, this photogenic and liberating workout is definitely worth a trip. After you learn to fly and fall (it’s a little painful and a lot scary), make sure you finish strong with a Thai dinner in Kowloon City.

    Unit 903, Port 33, 33 Tseuk Luk Street, San Po Kong

    P.S. There is another workout system involving a bungee called 4D Pro Bungee Fitness, now teaching at the more conveniently located and Guava-enabled XP Fitness Hub in Central. I personally haven’t tried it yet, but am stoked to!

    Gymbeginner

    This is definitely my go-to on Kowloon side. Focusing more on perfecting technique than getting the most reps, Gymbeginner is aptly named and made for fitness newbies who want a comfortable environment to get started in. My visits have always been lovely, and if I was feeling extra, I can add more reps or make drills more difficult too.

    Flat 4A, Capri Building, Austin Road, Jordan

    Optimum Performance Studio TST

    I randomly went into a core training class there once, but the experience definitely stuck with me. The space itself is actually half rehabilitation centre and half gym, and my instructor a super experience krav maga fighter. Needless to say, the hour-plus long workout was intense, and involved ONE HUNDRED BURPEES. LOL, to this day I don’t know how I did it. But hey, I did. The training also starts with foam-rolling and ended with a circuit training, so all in all, just a really good and fun workout.

    16/F, 9-11 Hillwood Rd, Tsim Sha Tsui


    Pheew, that’s it! Does this at least make up for my infrequent presence?! I sure hope so. P.S. I do a weekly shout-out to my favourite workout of the week, so if you want more updated info, please do follow me on Instagram!

    Till next time, leave me a comment la!

    xoxo

  7. 當大家以為Mr & Mrs Fox主要是吃牛扒,其實餐廳還提供其他不同款式的食物。餐廳最近轉了廚師,新廚來自阿根廷,菜式帶著地中海的味道。

    untitled-20924140.jpg
    Hokkaido Scallop Oyster Ceviche
    第一道菜為ceviche,秘魯必吃的沙律,這個版本的加入了北海道帶子和生蠔,帶子鮮甜,生蠔帶著海水味;用了柚子來調味,味道上更加的清新。


    untitled-20924181.jpg
    Pan Seared Sea Bream
    最近減少了吃肉,愛上了吃魚;這份sea bream煎得不錯,外層非常的香脆,魚肉嫩滑;底下的是蕃茄,蕃茄的酸令魚肉味道更鮮。雖然簡單,但能夠吃到每款材料的味道,不錯呢。

    untitled-20924222.jpg
    Hen of the woods
    吃過魚後,便來了一份燒春雞,春雞細細的,肉質十分的幼嫩,雞皮亦香脆;醬汁汁方面則是用雞煮成的,吃時不妨把蛋黃搗爛,拌著一同進食,味道更豐富。

    untitled-20924273.jpg

  8. 為咗揀部Notebook出國,少不免要去做高登仔,坐住部神駒去到北河街落車,啱啱好喺呢間舖對出,本來我係想食雲吞麵嘅,又不過呢度有個平日限定嘅午市套餐,時間啱啱好又無謂miss咗佢吖,咁變心快過打針嘅我就入咗去食喇。

    IMG_4935.png



    四款拉麵可以選擇,基於海老湯底喺香港較少人做,就揀佢試試。叉燒都可以揀厚切或火炙,當然火炙比較吸引。配菜可以揀蔥或椰菜,椰菜似乎唔太夾就揀返蔥。麵都係揀返硬身啱我口味。小食除咗炸雞外就唔太吸引我,再加支汽水,$78真係同茶餐廳唔會差太多。

    IMG_4915.png

    汽水估唔到會係用玻璃樽裝,雖然容量少啲但啲汽係比罐裝多,所以我係鍾意樽裝多啲。

    IMG_4918.png

    一個人食就通常會坐吧枱位,可以見到廚房嘅運作,因為我揀咗個煮麵位坐,有女職員問我會唔會覺得熱,幾細心唔錯。

    IMG_4934.png

    炸雞先到,我從來無期望過跟餐嘅炸雞會係即炸,果然一食就知係預先做起,微暖同唔太脆。雖然肉汁唔多但肉厚,感覺似係來貨唔係自家做,沒有期望就沒有失望。

    IMG_4921.png

    拉麵嚟到,估唔到舖到咁滿,仲有預計以外嘅蔥白同肉碎添。

    IMG_4923.png

    叉燒有經過充份火炙程度,亦有一定厚度,但咬落去除咗火炙香外,叉燒嘅調味唔太明顯。由於肥膏唔多,就算火炙咗佢都唔會話好有油香,好睇但又未到好食。

    IMG_4926.png

    湯底就相當濃郁,蝦味極重,以價錢計我好難想像佢會咁濃蝦味,但又唔會話好鹹,飲完又唔會口好乾。櫻花蝦就浸到軟晒唔脆口,可能佢地係放櫻花蝦乾去煮所以咁濃味掛?總之湯底我就好滿意。

    IMG_4929.png

    拉麵顏色比較雪白,食落去好似唔喺硬麵質地,唔通我剔錯?除咗硬度之外個麵就無話太特別,滑係幾滑但唔夠咬口,無咩碱水味算係優點,但佢係全碗麵最大缺陷。

    IMG_4925.png

    價錢而言呢間拉麵店算係偏中下游,湯底質素我都幾欣賞,可惜啲麵整成咁晒咗碗湯啦。

    價錢:$78

  10. 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.

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

    一个方便的位置

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

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

    理想的生活方式

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

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

    高品质的发展

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

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

    良好的回报

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

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

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

    IMG_20180508_212947.jpg

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

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

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

    IMG_20180508_213359.jpg

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

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

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

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

    Keeping focused

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

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

    Learning to trust

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

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

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

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

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

    @ 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 !!

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

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

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

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

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

    Probably will go next time with my family J

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

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

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

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

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

    20170129_200146.jpg

    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

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

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

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

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

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

    IMG_7285-1.jpg

    We were treated to this off-the-menu house smoked salmon which had a subtle smoky flavor and deliciously chewy texture to go with our champagne. 
    IMG_7291-1.jpg

    For appetizers, J went for the Le Pate En Croute ($290) with homemade terrine, foie gras from Les Landes, pistachio and pork belly. As opposed to the soft pate spread, the pate is baked in a crust and is a very "French" dish that may not be for everyone (the people next to us only took a few bites). 
    IMG_7293-1.jpg

    My Le Calamar ($250) with pan-fried squid, Hokkaido scallop, chorizo, bok choy and lemon dice was solid with very safe flavors but I thought the scallops could have been more raw while the dish could have used more acidity to make the tastes more interesting. 
    IMG_7296-1.jpg

    Moving onto mains, the Le Bar ($480) with pan-fried sea bass, cherry tomatoes, white asparagus and Jerusalem artichoke puree was nicely executed but again the flavors were pretty safe and tasted as expected. 
    IMG_7299-1.jpg

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

    IMG_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!

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

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

    2

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

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

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

    Had some soothing Cantonese soup to wash away inner heat.

    17

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

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

    Portuguese egg tarts were also available!!

    21

    Restaurant interior filled with plenty sunlight.

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

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

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

    34

    35

    Enjoyed stunning ocean view even in the bath! 

    36

    38

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

    39

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

    40

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

    41

    45

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

    46

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

    These are all Ocean Front Panoramic View Rooms located.

    50

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

    51

    52

    53

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

    54

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

    59

    61

    62

    Different sauces to season the skewers to your liking.

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

    67

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

    69

    68

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

    70

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

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

    71

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

    73

    74

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

    72

    75

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

    76

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

    77

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

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

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

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

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

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

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