    幫襯 雅苑座 很多年了,仍然為特高樓底(可望到多部子彈電梯升降!!)、招牌噴泉以及現場歌手演唱而傾心,那份情懷是難以取代的。靚景美食下,週一至四自助晚餐收費成人$598/小童$468,週五至日、假期及前夕成人$678/小童$508,還有 低至六折優惠,十分合理。

    場內也有少見的法式田螺,底下幼滑的薯泥又讓我想念起為食兩兄妹了!加上印度雞咖哩、印式香飯和薄餅,以及中式的清湯蘿蔔牛肚、上湯木耳竹笙,要全部試勻也有一定難度呢~

    IMG_6003.jpg

     

    IMG_5954.jpg

     

    IMG_5997.jpg

     

    最後是甜品區,首先是巨大的朱古力噴泉,配料包括泡芙、綿花糖和士多啤梨,當然也可以用另一邊的西瓜、菠蘿、火龍果、蜜瓜,甚至是名物蝴蝶酥點來吃!水果區同時設有涼粉、鮮果杏仁,都是清新之選。

     

    IMG_5998.jpg

     

    IMG_5958.jpg

     

    接下來的甜點區也萬般誘人,美美香脆的泡芙山,馳名高質的原味/抹茶味蝴蝶酥,加上檸檬撻、雲尼拿法式焦糖燉蛋、朱古力蛋糕,以及小朋友最愛的糖果樽,實在令人留連忘返!

     

    IMG_5959.jpg

     

    IMG_5996.jpg

     

    旁邊甜品櫃還有更多繽紛選擇:櫃內是全新芒果系甜品,如芒果腸粉、芒果紫糯米、芒果意大利奶凍,加上粟米意大利奶凍及開心果紅莓慕絲配雜莓等。上層則有朱古力Brownie、冰皮朱古力卷、杏仁梨撻、紅豆綠茶慕絲蛋糕、杞子桂花糕、藍莓芝士蛋糕及馬卡龍,超豐富!

     

    IMG_5999.jpg

     

    IMG_5961.jpg

     

    甜魔媽媽對雪糕情有獨鍾,愛整了接下來的Häagen-Dazs雪糕櫃,當配上即製班戟(口味有三款包括原味、香蘭葉和綠茶),滋味好得無比啊!這區更有蘋果金寶和椰汁龍眼雪耳糖水,真的太豐富了,其實應該至少分2-3次來吃,才能品嚐得完。

     

    IMG_6001.jpg

     

    IMG_5963.jpg

     

    最後店內新增了自助飲品區,無論是想喝咖啡、茶、水和檸檬,都可以自己話事了!當然有特別要求(如我想喝伯爵茶),還是可以向侍者提出,這裡的人手頗足,照顧很週到的。

     

    IMG_6005.jpg

     

    差點忘了講:凡惠顧自助晚餐,每位客人即敬送法式釀麵包蟹蓋配鱒魚籽一份,可用換領卷在外邊領取。加上鱒魚籽蟹蓋十分鮮香好吃,不過份量很大,我們三人只分享了一客已經很飽了~

     

    IMG_6039.jpg

     

    IMG_6014.jpg

     

    因應主題,這晚除了多款冷熱海鮮(特別推介爆膏的龍蝦,以及鮮嫩龍蝦鉗),也恰了一大碗喇沙風味的海鮮,香辣惹味的滋味太吸引了!

     

    IMG_6038.jpg

     

    IMG_6024.jpg

     

    之後再加上不同款刺身、水果、沙律、大阪燒、海南雞飯、燒牛肉、爐端燒及甜品,就是超級豐富的一頓,我不客氣要開餐了!在美景下細意品嚐美食,發覺了:這裡每款食物都很有水準,無法推出三甲之選,大家隨心情及喜好來選就好~

     

    IMG_6035.jpg

     

    IMG_6019.jpg

     

    甜品環節給點建議吧:冠絕全港的蝴蝶酥當然是必吃之選;但直到4月30日前以 OpenRice 優惠劵惠顧,每位客人可半價購買人氣蝴蝶酥一罐,每4位客人加送人氣蝴蝶酥一罐,其實可以留力品嚐新出芒果美點,以及美味的即製斑戟,其中斑蘭味最為推介!

     

    IMG_6040.jpg

     

    IMG_6041.jpg

     

    吃到九成飽,多取客雪糕消一消滯,也是時間聽鐘聲出去排隊:每晚餐廳都會推出超好吃的雜果拿破崙,甜魔一定要留肚品嚐;提起生日,如客人在生日月份惠顧自助餐晚餐,不但可免費獲得生日蛋糕(需於一天前預訂),還有現場琴師和歌星獻唱生日歌,氣氛超棒!

     

    IMG_6045.jpg

     

    如是長者壽星到訪,更有免費立體壽桃蛋糕;而在母親節及前夕到訪,每位母親敬送金箔燕窩燉雙皮奶一客。海洋奇緣自助晚餐供應至5月31日,想吃就抓緊優惠,提早訂位吧~

  2. P4243060_R.jpg
    久しぶりにNiki's Kitchenのジャニタ先生のレッスンに参加してきました。
    どうしても作りたかったレシピがあったんです。運よく予約できてよかった~。
    ジャニタ先生のレッスンは香港の料理を含め、中国のお料理もいろいろ教えてくださいます。
    今日のレシピはこちら。

    ◆上海生煎包(上海焼き饅頭)
    ◆冬姑菇包(シイタケ饅頭)
    ◆茶葉蛋(茶葉煮込み卵)
    ◆螞蟻上樹(春雨と挽肉炒め)
    ◆蘿葡清湯腩(牛バラ肉と大根のスープ)

    え?なにそれ?というお料理がありますねww。
    実は私、レッスンの2日前に調理中に人差し指をザックリと切ってしまい、両手を使う調理と洗い物はご遠慮させていただきました。とほほ・・・。
    ご参加した皆様、ご迷惑をお掛けしました。役立たずの私に優しくしてくださりありがとうございました(^^)

    P4242893_R.jpg
    ウェルカムドリンクは暑いのですっきりさせるデトックスウォーター。こういうの作りたくなる季節だねー。

    P4242919_R.jpg
    本日の主役の粉もの。私、本当に粉もの苦手・・・うまくこねられないんですが大丈夫かな。今日は皆さんにコネコネしていただきましたので見学のみ。

    P4242996_R.jpg
    P4243015_R.jpg
    2/3の生地はこちらに成型しました。『生煎包』は実は他のお教室でも習って多分今回で3回目(笑)。やっとコツがつかめてきた!頑張って3個包んだよ!

    P4242967_R.jpg
    残りの生地はシイタケちゃん用。『冬姑菇包』は聞きなれない料理名ですが、香港でミシュランひとつ星を獲得した某ホテルのレストランで提供されている点心のひとつなんですって。それに先生のアイディアをプラスした一品。
    ちなみにシイタケは入ってない、甘いおまんじゅうになるのです。面白いでしょー?

    P4243078_R.jpg
    焼きあがった『生煎包』。フカフカで美味しかった!!!朝ごはんに食べたいですね~。
    たくさん作って冷凍庫にストックしておきたくなる。

    P4243054_R.jpg
    シイタケに見立てて蒸しました。軸もちゃんと作ってあるので・・・。

    P4243060_R.jpg
    完成図がすごすぎる!!!どう見ても美味しそうなぷっくりしたドンコですよ、これ!! 中が甘いなんて想像がつかない~。メチャ美味しかったです。またおうちで作りたい!

    P4243051_R.jpg
    私、今日はコレを習いたくて参加したといっても過言ではありませんww。
    『螞蟻上樹』は四川の家庭料理ですが大好きなんです。
    春雨を木に、挽肉を蟻に見立てている料理・・・と言われてますが、実際に蟻は入っていませんのでご安心を。
    すぐ復習できるよう、春雨と挽肉をスタンバイさせておりました(笑)。
    P4243074_R.jpg
    おうちにある調味料で作れるレシピだったので、早速作りましたよ~。美味しかった上にとても簡単!
    ザザっと晩御飯を作らなければならない主婦にはお役立ちメニューです。これ、我が家の定番メニューに決定です~。夫も喜んでくれたのでホッ。

    P4243076_R.jpg
    これも大好き!『蘿葡清湯腩』は牛バラがホロホロ~。スープは優しい味。毎日食べられます。

    P4242903_R.jpg
    今日は先生が作っておいてくれた『茶葉蛋』。すっかり我が家でも定番ですが、うまくヒビを入れるコツがつかめず。簡単なようで意外と難しい。
    こちらも過去にいろんな先生のレッスンに参加していますが、それぞれ味が微妙に違うので興味深いです。私は私好みの我が家の味にしています。
    P4243081_R.jpg
    P4243082_R.jpg
    さすが先生!綺麗にヒビが模様になっていました。近々作って復習しなきゃ。

    P4243070_R.jpg
    ジャニタ先生のレッスンはいつも楽しいし、主婦が簡単に気軽に作れるレシピが多いので助かります。ヘビロテしている先生のレシピ、結構あるな~。
    参加される方もお料理のプロの方や得意な方が多く、勉強になることも多いです。

    予約ですぐにレッスンが埋まっちゃうジャニタ先生ですが、また予約争奪戦に参加して参加権ゲットしたいと思います~(笑)。

  3. After trying the Singmalay Tea treats, I almost missed a stylish Happy Hour if I didn't see this glam poster on the way out.

    IMG_20180419_160008.jpg
    I have to admit, I was lured back by the digital promotion near the concierge.
    At the Lobby Bar Counter, there were these beautiful ceramic Qipao figurine jars.
    IMG_20180420_233340_965.jpg
    There are four signature cocktails to wow you!!
    IMG_20180420_233242_716.jpg
    I tried the Beer Milkshake while my friend had the China Lady:
    The Beer Milkshake was a fun concoction of Chocolate Ice Cream, Porter, Milk, cream, chocolate sauce and topped with an Oreo.
    IMG_20180420_010544_062.jpg
    The China lady was very feminine and Oriental with Chinese liquers like Shochu, Plum Wine, Lemon Juice, Maple syrup, Pasteurized Egg White and and Cucumber.
    IMG_20180419_154625.jpg

    IMG_20180420_233457_879.jpg
    I definitely enjoyed my girly time here and can't wait to come back to try the Pina-Kale Ada and Singapore Sling!!

  4. 上次喺大圍搵到間平靚正嘅日本嘢,我個返鄉下(I mean日本)仲多過我嘅老死又話想去試下,諗起又好耐無喺果邊踩單車,就決定踩完單車再過嚟吔。

    IMG_4849.png

    以前運動完可以大吃大喝,而家老喇,反而係攰到食唔到咁多嘢,就揀啲特別想食嘅啦。

    魚生飯本來就唔特別,不過呢碗山形角切魚生粒珍寶赤蝦飯($68),多出嚟隻蝦就真係夠大隻喇,純目測佢有成六吋長兩隻手指粗,蝦肉口感結實帶黏性唔會霉爛,再啜埋個清甜嘅蝦腦,感動。魚生粒就符合預期,都係三文魚吞拿魚油甘魚呢啲,睇個色澤都知品質唔錯,魚生粒嘅份量甚至乎多過飯添﹗

    IMG_4833.png
    魚生赤蝦用料足

    點刺身飯可以換購三文魚頭鮫($30),我係相當鍾意食三文魚頭嘅,應該話我鍾意食熟嘅三文魚多過生嘅,因為煮過嘅三文魚啲魚油逼咗出嚟更好食。有時啲餐廳嘅燒三文魚頭,就真係得個頭無肉食,呢度仲有埋個魚鮫位,價錢相同肉量Double up。雖然魚頭係樣衰咗少少,但食落去肉質就好細滑,而且魚頭皮(唔係柒頭皮)燒得香脆嗦嗦聲。而魚鮫就幾厚肉,魚肉夾起嚟唔會散但入口即融,又伴隨住魚油嘅甘香,呢個價錢真係自己整都無咁平。

    IMG_4837.png
    脆皮魚頭夠抵食

    明太子手羽($48)個樣脹卜卜好似BB嘅雞髀仔咁,賣相相當吸引,見佢咁脹卜卜就知裡面釀咗唔少明太子啦。雞肉咬落去雖然肉汁唔多,但肉質唔會霉,雞皮如果再脆口啲就更好。裡面嘅明太子份量同預期一樣多,辣味唔會好強,加杯啤酒就爽喇。
     IMG_4842.png
    少辣雞翼好送酒

    今次食嘅款式同上次唔同,不過一樣水準唔錯,尤其係呢度價錢夠街坊,又唔使係旺區排大隊,同埋我喺度返屋企仲快過由旺角返呢。

    價錢:約$80

  5. 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.

  6. hotel-penaga-penang-9-150x150.jpg

    When looking for a hotel in Georgetown, I came across the lovely heritage boutique hotel: Hotel Penaga. I knew I wanted something with a good dose of traditional charm, but still have a variety of modern necessities. Built in the 1920’s, the building was originally comprised of homes and ground floor shops until 2008 when a couple purchased the property, and carefully renovated and transformed it into Hotel Penaga Penang. The hotel is full of history and fascinating artwork throughout, and the staff are very helpful and welcoming. I honestly couldn’t have asked for a better hotel to spend a few days in while exploring the lovely area of Georgetown.

    First impressions of Hotel Penaga

    hotel-penaga-penang-13-1024x683.jpgHotel Penagahotel-penaga-penang-12-1024x683.jpgLobby

    The concierge was all smiles as he opened the main doors of Hotel Penaga upon our arrival. Everything – from check in and out, to getting information about Georgetown and arranging transportation to another part of Penang – was so incredibly easy thanks to the helpful staff. I really did feel at home here thanks to the staff who were always going out of their way to ensure we had a great stay. Aside from the staff, I immediately fell in love with the design of the hotel. It honestly felt like I was taking a luxurious step back in time while walking around this heritage boutique hotel.

    The room

    hotel-penaga-penang-1-1024x683.jpg hotel-penaga-penang-2-1024x683.jpg hotel-penaga-penang-3-1024x683.jpg hotel-penaga-penang-4-1024x683.jpg hotel-penaga-penang-5-1024x683.jpg hotel-penaga-penang-10-683x1024.jpg

    I had the most beautiful room – from the minute I walked in, I fell in love with all of the polished wooden furniture, the subtle Asian touches, and the paintings that adorned the walls. My favorite features of the room itself were the large canopy bed that took center stage and the wooden dresser decorated with red Chinese designs. Hotel Penaga also supplied a good range of fairtrade coffee and teas in the room with a life-saving espresso machine that made a killer cup of joe.

    Although it may sound a bit silly, I relished time spent in the bathroom when I was showering and getting ready in the morning. The bathroom was huge (almost the size of my bedroom in Hong Kong!) and I loved the contrast between the light blue tiling and the dark wood paneled floors. I always look out for a big bathtub when I’m choosing a hotel and Hotel Penaga’s massive jacuzzi did not disappoint.

    We were also lucky enough to get a room with a balcony that overlooked the pool and other parts of the hotel. Perfect for enjoying a cup of coffee in the early morning before breakfast (and before it became too hot outside!), I loved being able to have a bit of outdoor space. Also, if you didn’t notice from the photos, many of the room’s light switches were actually bells – a really neat added touch.

    Breakfast

    hotel-penaga-penang-7-1024x683.jpg hotel-penaga-penang-6-1024x683.jpg

    Breakfast at Hotel Penaga Penang was a casual affair. They offered a variety of hot items (some changed daily), breads and spreads, and fresh fruit and juice. The service is prompt and friendly and there was a good selection to choose from, whether you liked more of a western-style breakfast or an Asian one. They also offered any style of eggs you’d like (poached eggs on toast, please!) and had a selection of their own Penang homemade bread with kaya spread (a delicious coconut jam) and other unique locally sourced jams.

    Facilities

    hotel-penaga-penang-8-683x1024.jpg hotel-penaga-penang-11-683x1024.jpg hotel-penaga-penang-9-1024x683.jpg

    Hotel Penaga Penang has just about everything you could ask for. The location is perfect in that it’s within walking distance of everything you’d want to see in Georgetown (just be sure to bring comfortable shoes!). There is a lap pool with a handful of covered tables around it and a few loungers if you can bear hanging out in the blistering heat. The hotel also has a spa, library, meeting rooms, and a restaurant/bar. One thing I found quite interesting was the artwork throughout the hotel. Hotel Penaga actually runs an artist residency program where contemporary artists can apply to have their work put on display throughout the hotel, so be sure to take your time while wandering around to read about the artists and their work.

    Overall thoughts on Hotel Penaga Penang

    Hotel Penaga Penang is a boutique hotel with a whole lot of charm and personality. The service is honestly exceptional here – they even used their own personal phone to call us a Grab (the company that recently bought out Uber in Malaysia) when we couldn’t use the app in order to get to our next destination in Penang. During the two nights we spent at Hotel Penaga everything was fantastic and I would definitely recommend booking your stay here when you visit Georgetown!

    首先來一盤醬汁,有豉油、醋、麻油、麻醬、沙茶醬、蒜蓉、蔥花、辣椒,仲有我最愛既芫荽碎喔!寶寶就超級鍾意落蒜蓉同沙茶醬。

    豉油, 醋, 麻油, 麻醬, 沙茶醬, 蒜蓉, 蔥花, 芫荽, 辣椒

    至於湯底,我哋揀咗「火瞳花膠魚肚雞湯」。湯頭用上雞骨、金華火腿、紅棗、杞子熬成奶白色既湯,所以味道比較鹹;配埋花膠,魚肚同魚翅,仲有半隻鮮雞,非常豐富同鮮甜,火鍋之前服務員都幫我哋「筆」咗幾碗湯飲。

    我哋點既火鍋配料,「黃金麻吉燒」,原來係魚蛋包住麻薯;「麻辣湯包」,非常燙口,一咬落去會有好香既麻油且十分彈牙!

    炸魚皮就吃得多,炸魚骨就真係第一次。炸得非常脆口,點點湯底又係另一番風味。可惜響鈴就唔算脆,但掛湯力係十分強既,哈哈!

    海鮮方面,我哋只係簡單點咗鮑魚同蝦滑。前者好新鮮,後者加入鹹蛋黃後味道特別,質地都唔錯。仲有流心「芝士丸」同十分足料既「蟹肉蟹粉餃」,餃子皮好薄而且好重蟹膏味呀!

    IMG_5249.jpg

    鮑魚, 鮮打鹹蛋黃蝦滑

    牛肉方面,寶寶點咗「美國肥牛」,份量足夠兩個人食,大理石紋好明顯,牛肉味都重,唔錯唔錯。

  8. I thought it was the Rose Water by Watsons Water.
    Watsons Water is a brand that supplies distilled and mineral water.
    Last year, they launched Rose Water in a Pink Bottle.

    When I took a closer look, it turned out to be Sakura Honey Water in a similar design but this time the plastic was not see through was opaque.

    The barcode at the back was pretty.

    Unfortunately, I didn't like the taste because it tasted like lipstick!

    This drink is available from 4/4/2018-17/4/2018 while stocks last.

  9. 繼大半個月前在Aestique Beauty Medical Center做過一次PICO袪斑後,臉上的斑點已經減淡了不少之所以,膚色亦白淨了不少。
    第二次的來到,充滿了期望,希望透過兩次的打斑,可以減少臉上大部份的斑斑。

    第一次打PICO,皮膚對PICO的反應都會大些,所以細心既Aestique治療師,會調較合適的能量幫助皮膚適應。到第二次時,治療師就會跟據上次既能量再作調。打斑的力度加強了。因為經過第一次的試驗,知道皮膚能夠承受多大的強度,所以力度加強了;加強力度後,更能打散臉上的頑固色斑;女人為了美,絕對是可以承受那痛楚的。

    打斑前,其實我臉上真的有超多斑,多得可怕。色斑類型及深度都會影響打斑既次數。一般底層斑或荷爾蒙斑需要的次數會多D,大約5-6次。如果係表面既色斑,3-4次就會明顯減淡。有些好表面或細粒雀斑仔,仲可以用定點結焦方法,快速清除班點。

    untitled-1217587.jpg
    每次打斑後,臉部都會偏紅的,過一會便沒事了。雖然在中心裡已經敷了保濕面膜,但不代表這樣是足夠的,最後在打斑後連續3-4天都自行在敷保濕面膜,這樣對效果好之餘,亦會減低敏感和出粒粒的機會。

    打過兩次laser後,效果都不錯,十分期待第三次呢。

    「叉燒煎蛋飯」有「黯然銷魂飯」之稱,我也非常喜歡。在上環出名的叉燒煎蛋飯首推孖沙茶餐廳,但最近發現一家賣叉燒炒蛋飯雖未至「黯然銷魂」,但也相當不錯吃。

    IMG_0903.jpgIMG_0902.jpg

    上環文武廟每天都人頭湧湧,在其旁邊有條小路,轉上便是四方街。沿斜路上會見到一幅漂亮的李小龍塗鴉,茶咖宅就正正在李小龍塗鴉的對面。

    IMG_0892.jpg

    早餐午市,茶咖宅都一應俱全,賣的都是非常地道的港式食品。午市餐牌大量錯別字,也可說是港式茶餐廳的特色吧(笑)。

    IMG_0896.jpg

    叉燒炒蛋飯除了主角叉燒和炒蛋,還有不少椰菜。炒蛋即叫即炒,夠熱夠滑,配上甜豉油是一大驚喜。

    IMG_3316.jpg

    另一主角叉燒則略嫌瘦了點,但幸好肉質還算鬆化,加上蜜味不錯,配上滑蛋還是很有看頭。邊吃邊呷一口奶茶,在這寧靜的小街很是寫意。

    紅雞碗,港奶茶,還有地道的叉燒炒蛋,加上用心製作,茶咖宅是值得支持的港式小店。

  11. Hey guys! How has it been?! Happy 2018! Happy Chinese New Year! Happy Valentines Day! Sorry I’ve been missing out on blogging… I really have no excuse, I just hope y’all will forgive me.

    So what’s been new in 2018?! I’ve actually been producing content for Instagram consistently, and I’ve recently released a Youtube video reflecting on my year-long love affair with Bounce Limit. If you’d like to learn more about this, please watch the video below:

    It’s truly been an extremely transformative year. Many people will argue (including myself) that I’m quite literally a different person. I eat better, I have better stamina, posture, motivation, self-discipline… Basically everything they say is true about exercising has happened to me – all without “dieting”. Again – I’m not going to annotate the entire video in text form, but please feel free to watch the entire video above. I go through basically the whole history, PLUS my story with personal training.

    I know I promised a FAQ video and I’ll be releasing that soon, hopefully next week!

    Though late, I’m still sending you a whole lot of love and well wishes for the new year. If you’ve not been working on your goals yet, it’s still not too late to re-start. Get on it, and most importantly live well.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

    Probably will go next time with my family J

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

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

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

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

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

    20170129_200146.jpg
    和紙燈飾和日系格局,舒服又光猛


    20170129_195301.jpg

    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


    * * * * * * * * * *

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

    IMG_7265-1.jpg
      
    Coincidentally, we sat at the same table as last time right by the Invader wall.
    IMG_7260-1.jpg

    The Bernardaud plates designed by Prune Nourry and JR are still a prominent part of the table decor at Bibo. 
    IMG_7257-1.jpg

    After J chatted with the sommelier Wallace on what he was looking for, Wallace recommended the Franck Bonville Prestige Avize Grand Cru Brut NV Blanc de Blancs ($1370) for us to try. He recommended the use of wine glass instead of the usual champagne flute to maximize the aroma and taste of the champagne. 
    IMG_7320-1.jpg

    Food-wise, Bibo offers a 5 course tasting menu for $1100 but we decided to order a la carte instead for more flexibility. After placing our orders, a refreshing amuse bouche with apricot jelly and almond mousse arrived along with bread and butter (one of which was a seaweed butter!). 
    IMG_7281-1.jpg

    IMG_7285-1.jpg

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

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

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

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

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

    IMG_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!

  18. 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!

    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~

    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!

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

    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

    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.

    Alaskan Crab Legs were only available during dinner time~

    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

  20. 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.

    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.  

     

    Early in the morning, All the way from Loong arh Su pass through ang mo kio via woodsland

    Omg!! Build with Legos !!  Hanging on the wall!!   For those who are fans of mini figure, don't forget to exchange with the service trader there.  Or you may ask any of those hotel employee to exchange their mini figures clip on their uniform. 

    Don't be shock, take a look beneath the bicycle wheel (magnifier) all are mini figure hanging on the wall.  And that giant Lego guy is riding left and right to show you how huge they are.
