  1. 轉眼又來到最後一篇遊記,與沙巴之旅遊記一樣,一開首又是送上爸爸製作的影片;沒錯,除了環境優美、設備完善,食物質素也很出眾,而在最後兩天,我們(最主要是Chloe妹妹)還發掘了它水療天堂的一面!

     

     

    來到 Day 3 及 Day 4 的早上,其實都有下雨;不過 Day 3 早上只是過雲雨,下了一陣就停雨了,所以早上起來了,也照舊拖了肥仔Matthew去跑步~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B4.jpg

    Day 2 走了入口那邊,這天則走向獨立別墅那邊,也終於看到了1.2公里沙灘沿線的盡頭~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B15.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B16.jpg

     

    半走半跑了廿多分鐘,再回到房間換件衣服,又是時間出發去享受幸福大早餐了!Resort 內所有植物經過雨水的洗刷,顯得更加清蔥迷人呢~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B19.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B24.jpg

     

    這天的早餐也是非常的豐富,特別新增了桃駁李令兩口子與奮不得了!細心一看,這天又有鳳爪、乾炒牛河,都非常的美味呢。

     

    FullSizeRender%2B21.jpg

     

    早餐時還取了報紙及 MO Daily 來看,原來下午3:30在 Pool Bar 有免費雪糕派!而 Highlight 的 Family Spa 家庭水療聽上去也非常好玩,我們決定將它們都收納行程之中~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B23.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B25.jpg

     

    The Spa 就在 Kid's Club 不遠處,我們預約了下午一點的 Family Spa 後,又帶兩兄妹去 Kid's Club 玩了~這天小朋友很多,兩兄妹玩得份外起勁愉快,Matthew更找到兒時的小玩具(按此 重溫影片),小時候的 baby Matthew 真的很可愛啊...

     

    FullSizeRender%2B35.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B27.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B36.jpg

     

    聽爸爸講樓上的 Fitness Centre & Gym Room 十分棒,這天媽媽也親身上去拜訪及體驗(當然提前跟Matthew講了如何上來),果然地方大、設置新淨企理,在裡面做 Gym 超舒服的!

     

    FullSizeRender%2B29.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B28.jpg

     

    除了擁優美園林美景的 Gym Room,另一邊還有Yoga Room,而更衣室/洗手間也很棒,設有 Sauna、Steam Room,不過這些在 The Spa 都有,而且在獨立屋內,當然我選擇享受後者啦~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B26.jpg

     

    IMG_7319.JPG

     

    這天甜魔媽媽挑戰了三個項目,合共時間大概30分鐘,不算太長,但之後數天都有肌肉小酸痛呢... 做 Gym 後又到樓項參觀了網球場,再講一次 Resort 地方真的很大啊~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B34.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B32.jpg

     

    而其實,兩口子玩了最長時間的,還是「游乾水」,啊不,有了自動洗牌機,游都不用游,直接打就是;在這天,老公還首次吃出人生第一個十三么!!!

     

    FullSizeRender%2B31.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B37.jpg

     

    Clubhouse 玩了、Gym 做了、牌也打了,時間12:45pm,是時間出發去 The Spa 了!不計在 Sweetcorn 的 Baby Massage,這也是兩兄妹第一次正式做 Spa 呢~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B45.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B38.jpg

     

    整個 Resort 本來已經青蔥優美,來到 Spa 中心更加宛如世外桃園,環境美極了!不說不知,這裡也是是海南省唯一擁有傳統中醫牌照的度假村水療中心呢~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B42.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B43.jpg

     

    原來 Family Spa 最多可以2大1小或1大2小同處一室,所以我們就要分兩間房啦~甜魔媽媽被編與乖巧的Chloe一房,爸爸則與好動Matthew一房,注定了一邊天堂、一邊歡樂谷! XD

     

    FullSizeRender%2B47.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B54.jpg

     

    喝下香茅茶(當然,妹妹不太喝得慣)又以冰涼毛巾清涼一下後,也是時間進入園林式的獨立 Spa Villa 啦~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B49.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B52.jpg

     

    如果是成人的話,中心其實建議賓客在水療開始時間前 45 分鐘到達,以享用桑拿和水療設施,讓身體準備好享用更深層水療體驗。不過帶著Chloe嘛,大部分都是參觀算了~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B56.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B74.jpg

     

    進到 Villa 內,這是一開始時洗腳的地方;之後向左走是更衣室、儲物衣飾櫃、具蒸氣功能的淋浴間、洗手間,以及獨立 Sauna 房,太享受了!

     

    FullSizeRender%2B65.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B58.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B62.jpg

     

    向右走的話,就是設有雙人床的 Spa Room;趁職員為我們打點同時,媽媽及妹妹先去洗個澡,淨身來準備接受療程啦~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B63.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B68.jpg

     

    一個來的話,我一定會先焗個 Sauna,等到一身大汗再淋冷水浴;但帶著妹妹,簡單淋個暖水浴、洗去身上汗漬就好~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B71.jpg

     

    開始療程時再來一張合照,Chloe妹妹似乎比媽媽更加期待呢,哈哈!

     

    FullSizeRender%2B73.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B69.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B72.jpg

     

    開始身體按摩前,我們都先洗腳;小孩的水溫會比成人低一點,當兩母女都舒服洗好腳後,就來到正式的戲玉,要開始身體按摩啦!首先由背部開始,之後再轉到正面(會戴上眼罩),妹好全程都非常乖巧合作;所以在拍了最後一張Chloe照後,媽媽我也躺下啦~

       

    FullSizeRender%2B75.jpg

     

    超初都有詢問妹妹情況如何,她每次都答很舒服,所以提醒她想睡可以睡後,媽媽我索性安心享受了!6月體驗 澳門文華東方水療 時,已覺得是神級享受;三亞治療師技術也一樣高超純熟,最妙是按摩頭部及手指的時候,明明沒感覺的地方都按出酸軟感來!

     

    FullSizeRender%2B82.jpg

     

    爸爸與Matthew,當然又是另一個故事啦!有人多度幾乎碌下床,是爆笑的經歷!XD 完成療程又喝多杯熱茶及吃幾口蜜餞果子後,也是時間去吃 late lunch,我們選了最近的 水榭

     

    FullSizeRender%2B86.jpg

     

    水榭 即是早餐地點,中午打開就提供散點式的國際美食;Spa 前不敢吃東西,Spa 後就可以小放肆了,這天Chloe點了 散養雞肉粥 (30元)、Matthew點了 芝士熱狗、薯片 (70元),爸媽則分享了 文華火雞公司三明治、新鮮蔬菜沙律、刁草蛋黄醬、炸薯條 (125元) 以及 喀什米爾咖哩羊肉,配香料米飯和饢餅 (160元),又成豐富一頓~ 

     

    FullSizeRender%2B85.jpg

     

    除了食物定價合理、質素好吃,其實 水榭 的 雪糕餐單 也非常的吸引;不過已到3:30pm,Matthew急著去 Pool Bar 取小孩免費吃的迷你雪糕,看看腰間的肥肉,唉,還是忍一忍口吧...

     

    FullSizeRender%2B90.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B91.jpg

     

    吃了迷你雪糕,兩兄妹都徹底滿足了,接著也是時間回房午睡~這天爸媽承諾兩兄妹只睡一小時就可以起來,趕在6點前再去玩多幾次滑水梯!

     

    FullSizeRender%2B89.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B92.jpg

     

    結果兩兄妹在5:20pm起來,我們最後一次去玩滑水梯、玩沙,之後,再出發去沙灘邊玩邊看最後一次日落~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B93.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B95.jpg

     

    這天早上媽媽及Matthew發現了這沙灘吊床,這天下午Matthew也去了躺,玩得十分開心;媽媽也試了試躺,由於床夠大、承托力足,在上面搖真的很舒服~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B96.jpg

     

    Chloe在爸爸威逼利誘之下,也上去嘗試了;起初妹妹老大不願意,苦瓜乾臉的,後來慢慢也投入在溫柔的搖擺之中,綻放出如花笑壓~

     

    IMG_6724.JPG

     

    FullSizeRender%2B99.jpg

     

    玩完吊床,我們又趁沒有人,去暢游 Tranquillo 池啦!由於這個泳池離海灘非常的近,我們起初都打算在這裡看日落算了~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B103.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B105.jpg

     

    當然,貪玩的小孩那沉得住性子,很快這平靜如鏡的泳池,就變成了兩兄妹的嬉水天堂!

     

    IMG_6722.JPG

     

    IMG_6720.JPG

     

    IMG_6716.JPG

     

    IMG_6717.JPG

     

    直到後來,爸爸發現了沙灘可以更好的欣賞日落,我們又以玩沙為誘餌,呼喚兩小魔過來~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B113.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B119.jpg

     

    這晚有雲,所以日落未算太壯麗;但一家幾口能在三亞的最後一晚,寫意地在沙灘看日落,感覺已經很棒了!

     

    FullSizeRender%2B121.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B122.jpg

     

    順帶一提,此灘有大量珊瑚及珊瑚碎,所以最好穿鞋前往;但黃昏的海水除了十分溫暖,水質還十分清澈,令人難忘!所以 Day 4 最後的上午,我們決定再來玩水!

     

    FullSizeRender%2B123.jpg

     

    玩到天色全黑了,我們才慢慢步行回酒店入口大堂(過程中也下了幾次泳池玩水!不過太黑沒拍了),等車回房間~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B125.jpg

     

    梳洗後大家都懶得再下樓了,所以最後的一晚又叫了 Room Services。本來很想重溫海南雞飯,但原來不少食物都售清了,所以點了楊州炒飯、海鮮炒烏冬、兒童漢堡,再加一支啤酒,然後又去睡了~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B124.jpg

     

    來到三亞的最後一天:雖然這晚搭的是夜機,但要提早抵達機場,大概6時就要離開,所以行程並不多。另外這天媽媽也懶了沒跑步,一來起床時又下雨,二來妹妹常常令人暈陀陀啊!

     

    FullSizeRender%2B4.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender.jpg

     

    慶幸在三亞這幾天天氣也算不錯,即是下雨也是轉眼就晴了,我們又出動去吃早餐啦~~~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B6.jpg

     

    在天堂的幸福時光過得太快了,轉眼來到最後一天,最後一頓,當然要吃得豐富點!事實上,經過連番旅行,媽媽我真的發覺食大了胃啊....

     

    FullSizeRender%2B3.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B8.jpg

     

    吃飽又是時間最後一次玩水;兩兄妹最愛始終是沙池,可以自由自在的玩沙實在太開心了,這天也盡情玩個夠!

     

    FullSizeRender%2B10.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B13.jpg

     

    之後又慢慢步向海灘那邊,繼續親親潔淨的大海~~~

      

    FullSizeRender%2B20.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B15.jpg

     

    與傍晚很不同,晚上是岸邊清涼、水中溫暖,日間則是岸邊炎熱,水裡卻十分清涼;我們沒去太深,但只在岸邊走走、沖沖腳也很愉快了~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B24.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B14.jpg

     

    之後爸爸繼續玩航拍,媽媽則帶兩兄妹到另一個恆溫 Vista 泳池游水,媽媽我怕曬,抓了草帽,蓋了毛巾就在沙灘椅躺著,看著他們玩~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B21.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B22.jpg

     

    玩到渴了,可以隨便到池邊取水喝,又可以隨便拿新鮮水果吃(又是最愛的桃駁李!),加上房間每天補充的水果,在三亞這幾天,真是吃水果吃飽!

     

    FullSizeRender%2B9.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B25.jpg

     

    肚滿腸肥的兩口子可以水果頂一餐(下午4:30pm還預約了日落吧吃下午茶呢),兩兄妹卻不行;這天懶懶地決定點 Pizza (118元起),賣相又幾靚仔,味道不錯,份量還很大,兩兄妹每人兩件都飽了,結果又有4件進了爸媽肚子~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B28.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B26.jpg

     

    要搭夜機,下午當然要讓兩兄妹睡好。要求了 4:30pm Late check-out 的我們,帶兩兄妹回房梳洗好,2pm 睡到 4pm 就起來收拾,真的要離開這優美的海景房了....

     

    FullSizeRender%2B33.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B35.jpg

     

    坐上酒店安排的 Buggy 接送我們抵達大堂,完成 check-out 手續後,我們便出發去日落吧,趕吃每天2:00 - 5:00pm供應的下午茶~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B32.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B38.jpg

     

    每到一間文華東方酒店,都應好好品嘗它的下午茶,我是如此相信的。尤其在三亞文華東方的美景之下(還可望到海角軒呢),嘆著優美海景下午茶,真是無比寫意的享受!

     

    FullSizeRender%2B37.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B46.jpg

     

    吃下午茶最好是配上熱茶,當然是比較耐熱的我才能做到;同行Matthew就要了芒果汁,呈沙冰的清涼飲料,在這炎炎夏日最合他胃口了~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B54.jpg

     

    三層架的下午茶 (268元/兩位) 來到,最頂層是原味及提子味鬆餅,中間是繽紛甜點、款式又多又美,最底層則是咸點。

     

    FullSizeRender%2B53.jpg

     

    其實還不是很餓,但文華的 Scones 真的好好吃啊!配上 clotted cream 及自家製草莓醬,最終四個都吃清光了~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B61.jpg

     

    咸點包括 Parma Ham 芝士火箭菜三文治、茶葉蛋三文治配綠菜生菜、煙熏三文魚 Bagel,三款都很好吃,加上一粒精緻的南瓜點心,很快都給秒殺!

     

    FullSizeRender%2B62.jpg

     

    甜點則有印有文華東方扇子標誌的巨大 Earl Grey 味馬卡龍、Mont Blanc 栗子撻、朱古力慕絲蛋糕、花生糯米球、班蘭葉夾層蛋糕,以及 Kalamansi (酸柑) Eclair 等,組合富心意,味道也不錯~ 

     

    FullSizeRender%2B58.jpg

     

    FullSizeRender%2B63.jpg

     

    有兩兄妹在,從來都是搶下午茶而非嘆下午茶;原本打算嘆個半小時的下午茶,上檯後半小時已被清光,那多出來的一小時,就讓他們最後一次到 Kid's Club 玩樂吧~

     

    FullSizeRender%2B57.jpg

     

    直到6:15pm,真的出發去機場了(我們訂了國泰港龍9:15pm的回程機),才拖著兩兄妹依依不捨離開~而到最後一刻,原來Chloe還非常的心掛.... 我不說了,大家看 Video 吧!XD

     

     

    旅程剛結束,但已經計劃下年等妹妹滿了4歲,要帶兩兄妹再訪,參加為期半天/一天的「文華東方兒童活動營」,到時兩口子就可以享受更輕鬆的二人時光了!想著也覺幸福啊~

    毎回香港に行くたびに「買いすぎかな・・・」と思いつつ、でも「いや、まだ買いたりない」と後ろ髪引かれるものが多々あります。
    スーツケースの大きさが限られるので泣く泣く飽きらめるものもありますが、なるべく新しい発見をして新しいものも購入するようにしています。
    ・・・そうやってお気に入りがどんどん増えてスーツケースもどんどん大きくなるんですけどね(笑)。
    今回、買ってきて良かったものをご紹介します。

    P6117917_R.jpg
    いつも買うものが決まっている【奇華餅家】
    今回、新しい発見がありました!「花生脆糖」はピーナッツを飴で固めたもの。【奇華餅家】に以前からあるけど、これは飴でガチガチに固まってなくてナッツが柔らかくてすごーく美味しかった!新しいシリーズかな?
    少し前に友達から台南土産にいただいた超絶美味しい「花生脆糖」に劣らない味でした!
    これはリピ確定!
    P6117910_R.jpg
    P6117919_R.jpg
    必ず買うのは「香芒金酥(マンゴーケーキ)」「馬仔」、そしてパッケージがリニューアルされた「牛油曲奇(バタークッキー)」。安定の美味しさ。
    「牛油曲奇」は駐在時代からのお気に入りですが、当時は8HKDでした。現在は20HKDですよー。高いー。

    P7078041_R.jpg
    香港のグルメ情報サイトで紹介されて気になっていたコレ!『Yogurt Jelly』、要するにヤクルトのグミです。香港には韓国食品も多いですね。
    ヤクルトじゃん!!!と思いましたが、これロッテ製品です(笑)。いいのかしら?
    でも美味しかった!ローカルスーパーのWellcomeで11HKDで購入しましたが、日本でも新大久保の韓国食材店で売ってるみたいです。300円くらいなので香港の倍近い価格・・・。

    P7078042_R.jpg
    いつも自分と会社の上司のお土産に買う『利賓納(Ribena)』のグミ。
    初めて右のパッケージを見つけたので買ってみました。ウィダーインゼリーみたいなのだと思っていたら、普通にジュースなのね(笑)。

    IMG_8734_R.jpg
    香港人のお友達が持っていたこれ。お菓子メーカー【嘉頓(Garden)】のロールケーキ。
    【嘉頓】と言えば、ネギクラッカーとかウェハース、チキンパウダークッキーが人気ですが、こんなのもあったのですね。上からブラックベリー、レモン、チョコレートでした。
    P6077901_R.jpg
    私が買ったのはこの2つ。上のチョコレートと下のはマンゴー!このマンゴーが美味しかったです!!!チョコレートは普通だったと夫説(笑)。
    ロールケーキとはいえ、中に生クリームが挟まっているわけではなく、マンゴーが生地に練りこんである感じでした。
    これ、また絶対買おう!!!
    P6057343_R.jpg
    どこのパン屋さんにもよくある『紙包蛋糕(紙包みスポンジケーキ)』
    ふわっふわなんですよねー。買い食いすることもありますが、今回はタッパーに余裕があったので詰めて日本に持ち帰りました!
    IMG_8992_R.jpg
    上の写真と別のお店で購入した『紙包蛋糕』。ホテル近くにあったチェーン店の【凱施餅店】で購入したのですが、これがキメが細かくてメチャクチャ美味しかった!
    香港帰国翌日の朝食はこのふたつでした。
    この瞬間なんですよね・・・あれ?もう日本にいるんだっけ?って香港ロスになるのは(笑)。

    六天的新加坡之旅來到尾聲,最後一天,我們選擇到有名的新加坡動物園參觀,期間在園內還遇到楊千嬅呢。

    zoo.PNG

    新加坡有四個野生動物園,分別是新加坡動物園Singapore Zoo)、夜間野生動物園Night Safari)、河川生態園River Safari)、裕廊飛禽公園Jurong Bird Park),四個動物園的門票都可在同一官網買到,而且更不時有網上或一次訂購兩個或以上門票的優惠。但因為這次時間不夠,加上小瞳小名年紀尚小,夜間野生動物園和河川生態園都不太合適我們,所以最後決定只去新加坡動物園就算了。

    IMG_9256.JPG

    正如之前在另一blog文介紹,我們大部份門票都是經由JL Travel買的,由於我們只去一個動物園,所以官網優惠基本上都不適用,我們就乾脆在JL Travel一拼訂購門票了。

    zoo%2Btaxi%2Bfee.PNG

    出發到動物園有很多方法,帶著小朋友,最佳方法當然是坐的士。在新加坡坐計程車很方便,網上亦有不少車資模擬器可供使用,出發之前計算一下,可以先有個預算。這天我們從酒店出發,大約半小時車程,就到新加坡動物園了。

    saex.PNG

    另外也可乘坐SAEx(Singapore Attraction Express),這條觀光專線能到達新加坡許多景點,但最好預先購票和預約。由於我們住的酒店附近沒有中途站,所以SAEx不在考慮之列,其他交通指南在新加坡動物園的官網也有介紹,大家也可參考一下。

    suggest.PNG

    在安排園內行程之前,建議可參考新加坡動物園在官網的遊園建議,在遊客資訊 > 遊園路線推薦可找到,看完之後才計劃適合自己的行程會較好。

    IMG_5504.jpg

    其實園裡動物隨處可見,此篇blog文不會詳細介紹每種動物,畢竟我們也不是專家,就主要介紹一下園內攻略吧。

    IMG_5496.jpg

    抵達園區,在入口附近可以租用設備。園內有租賃服務,可租用輪椅、BB車和儲物櫃等。

    IMG_5495.jpg

    BB車太小不適合小瞳小名,本想試試手拉那種,不過試坐和試拉後小瞳說不舒服,就沒租了。

    IMG_5540.jpg

    後來沿路看到有其他遊客租了手拉車,老實說,坐車那位坐得顛簸,拉車那位更是拉得汗流浹背,很慶幸我們沒有租呢。

    IMG_5850.jpg

    進入園內後路牌尚算清晰,最有趣是有動物的頭像模型,就算不懂名字看樣子也能猜到了吧?

    IMG_5542.jpg

    無論你是從那裡購票都好,都請緊記要買園內的遊園車票!票上清楚寫著Admission + Ride,就可以在園裡無限次乘坐遊園車了。

    zoo-map.PNG

    新加坡動物園也是頗大的,尤其是同行有小朋友或老人家,在新加坡普遍炎熱的天氣之下步行一整天會很辛苦。如地圖所示,橙色∞字就是遊園車路線圖,四個中途站能覆蓋大部份的景點,是園內很方便的交通工具。

    IMG_5531.jpg

    如果你沒買遊園車站,則每一個中途站都都收費,價錢不算便宜,你說,是不是應該買一張?

    IMG_5544.jpg

    這一部就是遊園車了,前後兩卡,外表都印上了不同的動物花紋。

    IMG_5684.jpgIMG_5687.jpg

    遊園車會經過不少景點,也會看到不少大型動物,如果時間不夠,這也是個另類的遊園好方法。

    IMG_5509.jpg

    IMG_5515.jpg

    園內有些展區會有專人介紹動物,我們就聽了工作人員細說樹梢小徑長鼻猴的生活習性。

    PA230283.jpg

    還記得之前香港海洋公園引入了澳洲樹熊和袋鼠,我們也有去看,可能樹熊初到貴境,感覺頗懶,基本上都是睡覺。

    IMG_5555.jpg

    這裡的澳大利西亞區也有樹熊和袋鼠,而且頗活躍和精靈,遠距離合照也是可以的。

    IMG_5527.jpg

    這對長臂猿和紅領狐猴整天都黏在一起,是一個有趣的景點。

    IMG_5588.jpgIMG_5599.jpg

    亞洲大象園有不少大象,相對地這資訊性較高,例如象牙危機等,是灌輸保育知識給小朋友的好地方。

    IMG_5567.jpg

    吃喝方面,園內有不少小食車,售賣可愛的樹熊麵包和撻批,不過價錢不便宜,幸好小瞳小名不是樹熊控,我們就沒有買了。

    IMG_5622.jpg

    午餐我們選了在動物園中央地帶的阿明餐廳Ah Meng Restaurant)。

    IMG_5600.jpg

    這裡算是一個大型food court,有不同地方的美食,價錢也相宜。由於地點方便,所以很多遊客光顧,建議盡量避開繁忙時間,這樣就可以盡量多遊一些景點了。

    IMG_5616.jpg

    除了海南雞,這裡也有燒雞,個人覺得以food court水準來說非常不錯, 油飯更是神來之筆,推介。

    IMG_5607.jpg

    餐廳採自助形式,吃完東西記得幫忙清潔啊。

    值得一提是阿明餐廳早上可選擇和紅毛猩猩一起吃早餐的,有興趣的朋友可以試試。

    最後是現場動物表演,新加坡動物園總共有四個動物表演,今次由於時間不夠且有些表演時間是重疊的,我們只選了兩個看,如果想盡量看多一點,建議先研究再安排好行程啊。

    IMG_5631.jpg

    我們第一個看的是雨林大反擊,地點在雨林兒童表演劇場。環形劇場地方很大,基本上最後一刻進來也是有位子的,但其實開場前半小時已經有人坐著等,如果想看得清楚一點當然早一點來坐前一點看會較好。

    IMG_5644.jpg

    IMG_5672.jpg

    劇場頂帳篷下有不少繩索,初時還不知道用處,原來那是給動物們走上舞台上用的,這個安排很不錯,因為可以讓坐後一點的觀眾也有機會近距離看到動物們表演吧。

    IMG_5639.jpgIMG_5675.jpg

    整個表演參與的動物品種不少,大人和小朋友也會看得很開心。

    IMG_5665.jpg

    最後這個環節最精彩,工作人員先是拿出一條大蛇,再邀請現場一位觀眾上台抱抱大蛇。

    IMG_5666.jpg

    正當那位現場觀眾要抱著大蛇之際,原來另外一班工作人員已經搬出另一條更大的白蛇出來!這條大白蛇足足要四位男士才搬得動啊!

    IMG_5668.jpg

    最後那位現場觀眾才知道真正要抱的是這大白蛇,你也有膽量試試嗎?

    IMG_5691.jpg

    看完雨林大反擊,我們餘下的時間都在雨林兒童樂園渡過。

    IMG_5692.jpg

    相對看動物,小瞳小名更喜歡這裡的遊樂設施,因為除了機動遊戲,還有機會親親小動物。

    IMG_5694.jpg

    這裡有動物版本的旋轉木馬

    IMG_5715.jpg

    也有看來很好玩的水上樂園,不過可惜這天沒開。

    IMG_5717.jpg

    IMG_5712.jpg

    還可以在馬厩看小馬。

    IMG_5720.jpg

    不過小瞳小名最開心的,還是餵山羊。

    IMG_5811.jpg

    SGD$5有一桶蘿蔔西芹等雜菜。

    IMG_5778.jpg

    小名不敢餵山羊,只願幫小瞳提著桶子,小瞳印象中不是第一次餵小動物,所以大膽得多,不過山羊們吃東西真的很快,整個桶子的蔬菜不消一會兒已經吃光了。

    IMG_5718.jpg

     最後,我們就在雨林兒童樂園表演劇場,看動物之友表演

    IMG_5812.jpg

    這裡的佈置較為卡通,一看便知是兒童向。

    IMG_5829.jpg

    表演的動物主要是受過訓練的狗,期間會邀請場上的小朋友參與,可惜選不中小瞳(淚)。

    PA230296.jpg

    除了狗,也有貓和老鼠等,小朋友會看得開心,但大人可能會有點悶了。

    PA230304.jpg

    表演期間無意中發現丁子高和楊千嬅一家,雖然想走過去合照,但思前想後,還是不想打擾正在渡假的一家人,就打消了此念頭了。

    IMG_5710.jpgIMG_5842.jpg

    雨林兒童樂園還有紀念品區,最後小瞳買了一包我們小時候經常吃的眼鏡聰明豆,在香港我也很久沒見過了。

    IMG_5851.jpg

    離開動物園在出口還有工作人員為小朋友送上貼紙和填色紙,這裡對小朋友來說算是樂園吧。

    IMG_5697.jpg

    總括來說,新加坡動物園的動物種類多,環境清潔,對小朋友來說應該有吸引力,但對大人來說則可能有點悶。如果有機會再來新加坡也應該不會再來這裡,因為始終有不少動物都和香港海洋公園等重疊。下次再訪新加坡,小瞳小名應該都長大了,到時再遊覽夜間野生動物園和河川生態園吧。

  6. Following the opening of the new wing of YOHO I in Yuen Long, ANA Sushi has come to introduce some Japanese cuisines in their new branch. They serve a number of categories including teishoku, sushi, sashimi, donburi, yakimono, tempura, agemono, robatayaki and teppanyaki, using seasonal, fresh and daily-catch ingredients, and has a warm wooden colour setting that gives a relaxing vibe. In addition, a semi-open dining area along with an open sushi and skewer bar.

    The first dish is a salad that features amberjack sashimi and a homemade yuzu vinegar. Using yuzu peel and Japanese vinegar, it gives an amazing citrus flavor, together with mixed greens, chopped cucumbers, cherry tomatoes, fried garlic and spring onion.
    Daily fresh-catch sashimi includes Hokkaido scallop, toro and my favourite well-torched red snapper.

    Hida Beef is the name of a black-haired Japanese cattle usually raised in Gifu Prefecture. They live with good environmental condition, which makes them an expensive beef to eat in Japan. Serving on a shrimp cracker, Chef has prepared them in 3 ways, soy sauce, fire-grilled and beef tartare with raw quail egg sushi. The former two are exceptionally delicious, very tender and has a perfect marbling of fat.

    Next are two tempura dishes, triple crab roll and tuna sushi roll. Beginning with a mix of crab meat, crab roe and crab paste wrapped in seaweed, it is battered fried to crisp with a crunchy coating and a creamy filling.
    Similarly, the tuna sushi roll is also tempura-fried, made with fatty tuna, leeks and spring onion.

    The best of the day is definitely Matsuba crab shell stuffed with crab paste, crab meat, crab roes and sweet and creamy Hokkaido sea urchin, served over steamed Japanese rice in a sizzling stone pot. It is seasoned with extra mentaiko rice seasoning and I particularly enjoy the crispy burnt rice at the bottom.

  7. IMG_6461-150x150.jpg

    After I tell people about why I moved to Hong Kong, I often get asked what has kept me here for the past five years. While there are plenty of factors, both big and small, I’ve managed to break it down to five reasons (’cause you know, five years/five reasons.. clever, right?). Over the past five years I’ve fallen head over heels in love with Hong Kong and I hope this post encourages you to visit this amazing city one day or, if you’re already living here, go out and do something different that’ll make the city seem new again to you.

    1. Ease of everyday life

    If you ask anyone in Hong Kong what one of the things they love most about the city is, they’ll likely say its convenience. Practically everything in this city is easy (except for banking and the post office – you’ll know what I mean if you live in HK). The public transportation is phenomenal – the MTR, bus, minibus, or tram can get you to any part of the city and costs practically nothing. 7-Eleven convenient stores can do far more than supply you with a beer to-go or a quick snack. You can pay your bills at 7-Eleven, return purchases from some online stores, hit up “Club 7” for cheap drinks, and much more. Hired help is also really easy to find (not to mention incredibly affordable), whether that’s in the form of a live-in nanny or a helper who comes to your flat to clean once or twice a week. Basically, life in general is pretty damn effortless.

    2. Hiking trails are everywhere

    One thing many people don’t realize about Hong Kong (and I didn’t either until I moved here) is how much greenery there is. Yes, Hong Kong has many areas that are densely populated with sky-high buildings, but it also has plenty of hiking trails all over. There’s a route for just about anyone: hikes for families, stellar views, trail running, ending at a beach, on different islands, ones with plenty of peaks, and everything in between. I couldn’t tell you how many hiking trails there are in Hong Kong, but I’ve been on quite a few of them and I love getting out there on a clear day to explore a quieter side of the city. I’ve written detailed guides on all the hikes I’ve done so far, which can be found here.

    3. The beach is a short drive away

    Given that it feels like summer the vast majority of the year in Hong Kong, I’m pretty darn grateful that there’s a handful of beaches to visit. Although geographically this makes sense since Hong Kong is an island and all, many people don’t realize that there are so many beaches around that look so “unlike Hong Kong” (almost akin to lying on a beach in Thailand) or some other tropical paradise. Many of the beaches are easily accessibly by public bus and only take 20 – 30 minutes to get to. My favorite beach in Hong Kong is Shek O Beach, located on the south side of the island – the water is usually clean, the sand is fine, you can rent out BBQ pits on the beach, and there are a few delicious restaurants in the little village.

    4. Convenient and cheap travel

    Thanks to Hong Kong’s central location in Asia, travel throughout this part of the world is not only convenient, but it’s also quite cheap. It’s not unlikely to hear talk of people jumping on a plane Friday after work and heading somewhere nearby, like Taipei, and then flying back on Sunday evening just in time to get a few hours’ sleep before work the next morning. If weekend trips are a bit too stressful for you, there’s plenty of public holidays to take advantage of and turn that two day weekend into a three of four day getaway. If you’re smart about planning your travel and aren’t a complete procrastinator (like I tend to be), you can score some incredibly cheap flights on various Asia-based budget airlines. The vast travel opportunities has certainly been one of my favorite parts about moving to Hong Kong.

    5. There’s always something to do

    Regardless of what your interests are, there’s always something appealing going on in the city. If you love the outdoors, there’s plenty of hikes to go on, a wide range of sports teams to join, and beaches to spend a lazy Sunday at. Love food (who doesn’t)? Hong Kong is a haven for foodie’s, offering every type of cuisine imaginable in all price ranges. Whether you prefer dancing till the sun rises or having a quieter evening with a cocktail and some live jazz, your Friday and Saturday nights are easily sorted. I often find I get excited about having a relatively quiet week coming up, and then get inundated with last-minute invitations to a variety of events happening throughout the city that week. Basically, you’ll never feel bored in Hong Kong.

    What are your favorite things about where you live?

  8. Was given a packet of Nissin Demae Ramen Bar Noodle Aka Tonkotsu Flavour Instant Noodle 出前一丁棒丁麵 from a friend.

    Inside, there is a plastic tray which protects the noodle from breakage with two sachets of broth powder.
    IMG_20170806_185924.jpg

    The instructions instruct you to boil the noodles and broth separately by adding the broth powder to the bowl.

    I was quite impressed by these noodles because the broth was thick just like the broths you get at ramen joints.
    The spicy sauce was very hot so I only used half a sachet.

  9. 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

    睇到支野成支都係發光綠色,完全係回復藥嘅程度,都知道肯定係飲品冒險啦。
    產自英國湖區嘅力嬌Kendal mint cake,個色澤其實幾靚,相當通透嘅綠色。飲落去其實唔差,朱古力味幾出,然後餘韻就少少薄荷氣息,同果隻雪山薄荷朱古力無咩大分別,無咩酒味似係一啲特飲多過酒類,買得過。

  12. Hey guys! Today I wanted to share something different, but something that matters to me. I’ll start off by saying that I’m no domestic goddess or green warrior, but I do and have always cared about recycling and not being wasteful. But in recent months, after getting educated about various issues from dairy, to fashion and plastic, I’ve been opening up my life to more changes that reduces waste and stress on the environment in general.

    The second thing that I was to disclaim right now is that I’m not perfect. I’m not “good” enough to not do paper, or never use a single piece of plastic, or eat vegan or 100% organic/sustainable etc. But I think, to me at least, the important thing is to try. Every action we do matters, and every little action leads to a little bit of goodness.

    I used to just “give away” unwanted clothing or item, and by that I mean putting everything in the donation bin and forgetting about it. Then I go on to buy more. But now, I make my purchases more mindfully. But hey – I still taobao or buy from H&M. It’s all about balance after all. So here, I wanted to share with you a few simple ways to start reducing waste and living more mindfully without going full cold turkey.

    IMG_6630-768x1024.jpg

    1. Bring your own cup

      I bought a Keep Cup! Like I said in my Instagram post, it was one of my best, if not the best, purchase I’ve made this year or ever. It is so light weight, easy to clean, has a valve seal so you can hoist it around, AND it really helps reduce waste one paper or plastic cup at a time. This is because I watched this video about recycling paper cups – FYI a lot of places don’t have the right process to recycle these coated paper cups so they end up going to the landfill. By bringing your own plastic cup on the other hand, you can even save a few bucks (depending on where you go – Winston’s, Barista Jam and many more cafes have discounts when you BYOC.)

      Side note: My girlfriend also bought me stainless steel straws, I use them at home now because I always forget to bring them out, but they’re absolutely a dream to use.

    2. Minimize takeout waste

      I know, sometimes you can’t plan every meal of your day, and more often than not you have to opt for meals al desko. What I find useful is, if I end up going to some place near the office/home for takeout, I opt out of taking the plastic bag and utensils. Maybe I’m too shy (for now) to bring my own container, but at least I’m saving one plastic bag and one pair of utensils (in another plastic bag). Don’t be lazy and wash the office/home forks instead!

      IMG_6742-1024x1024.jpg

      Should’ve recycled this… :S

    3. Think before you throw

      Lol I’m starting to sound preachy right? But I’m not going to teach you the basics of recycling, I’m sure (I hope) you already know that. But what I realised was, sometimes I’m quick to throw away something instead of recycling because I wasn’t thinking. For example, some really sturdy takeaway boxes can be cleaned and re-used or then recycled, I do this all the time in the office so everything from my takeout caused no waste. I also recycle groceries packaging and yogurt pots etc. Just make sure you clean everything before recycling.

    4. Refuse packaging

      It’s a very small gesture, but when you see shop keepers wrapping up your goodies in rice paper or extra plastic bags or ribbons and frilly things, just politely say you don’t need it. I know sometimes pretty packaging is great for the ‘gram, but if you’re not going to re-use or gift it, it’s pretty much seconds from going into the trash. Again – it’s better to not be wasteful than to recycle.

    These are just a few of the ways you can reduce waste without making huge changes, but slowly you can amp it up if you feel like it. Rock the bamboo toothbrushes, go sans packaging and shop from wet markets… Everything is a choice and the choice is yours. The key is to be educated, and when you are, you will automatically be aware of the waste you can save.

    I’m gonna run off before sounding too preachy… 🙂

    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


    * * * * * * * * * *
    口味各有不同,食文只作參考。 ❛◡❛✿

  15. 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_7247-1.jpg
      
    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!

  16. 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.

    3

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

    6

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

    Had some soothing Cantonese soup to wash away inner heat.

    17

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

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

    20

    Portuguese egg tarts were also available!!

    21

    Restaurant interior filled with plenty sunlight.

    27

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

    28

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

    31

    32

    33

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

    34

    35

    Enjoyed stunning ocean view even in the bath! 

    36

    37

    38

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

    39

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

    40

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

    41

    42

    43

    44

    45

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

    46

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

    47t>

    48

    49

    78

    These are all Ocean Front Panoramic View Rooms located.

    50

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

    51

    52

    53

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

    54

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

    59

    61

    62

    Different sauces to season the skewers to your liking.

    Alaskan Crab Legs were only available during dinner time~

    55

    64

    65

    66

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

    67

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

    69

    68

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

    70

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

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

    71

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

    73

    74

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

    72

    75

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

    76

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

    77

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

  18. 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.

    Trip to legoland 

    First day - Car from Singapore to Johor Malaysia

    This is the first time I take car from Singapore to legoland as well.  For those who were thinking of taking bus, I would rather rent a private car include a driver from the service company in Singapore.  Especially for those who were with kids and family.

  19. 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.

    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.

    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.

    Renault Captur event

    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.

    Mini Churros with chocolate sauce

    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.

    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.
