  1. 週末快樂!這兩天如果大家經開尖沙咀,非常建議到 馬哥孛羅香港酒店 一逛;因為酒店已經掛起一身絢爛迷人的聖誕新裝,又推出了一系列「醉人白色聖誕節」美食以及 Les Néréides 法式芭蕾下午茶,最重要是充滿意義的「聖誕夢成真」計劃已經開始,非常值得支持!

     

    IMG_7122.jpg

     

    今週事務非常繁忙,但昨晚百忙中也抽空,出席「聖誕夢成真」揭幕儀式。其實 Marco Polo 酒店已經多年與兒童癌病基金合作,每年籌集善款,並請小朋友享用聖誕大餐等;由去年開始,更加將38位癌童的聖誕禮物心願,以圖畫表達並掛在樹上,讓有心人捐助!

     

    IMG_7117.jpg

     

     

    收到夢想中的聖誕禮物,對於與癌魔博鬥的小鬥士們,無疑是極好的打氣強心針。去年的計劃很成功,禮物很快被認購一空,所以今年行動升級,一共掛出了80份癌童的願望。

     

    IMG_7124.jpg

     

    雖然大家都覺得,最理想的情況是:小朋友全都健康快樂,一張心願卡都不會出現;但當有願望出現(其實大多是簡單玩具、手表之類),能力所及可以盡心捐助善款(酒店人員會代為購買),也不失為一件美事。

     

    IMG_7129.jpg

     

    聖誕正是分享愛、分享快樂的季節,酒店這份善良美好的心意,拌著酒店內外一片白色聖誕裝飾,一閃一閃的,照亮同時溫暖人心~

     

    IMG_7134.jpg

     

    而在大堂那邊,更充滿一片歡呼聲,原來王仁曼芭蕾舞學院的幾組學員,已經準備好為我們獻出一場四場的精彩表演!

     

    IMG_7135.jpg

    IMG_7148.jpg

     

    看著不同年齡的學員,努力施展渾身解數,跳出優美的胡桃夾子、搞笑的雞仔舞等等舞步,大家都忍不住拍爛了手掌!

    動態的芭蕾舞單看照片是遠遠不夠的,所以甜魔媽媽也拍下了其中幾段精華片段,來與大家分享~當晚四場表演各有特色,不知大家最喜歡那一段?

     

     

     

    當然最重要還是宣布「聖誕夢成真」計劃正式開始,大家只要在酒店大堂聖誕樹上,拿下畫上癌童聖誕心願的卡片到櫃台付款,就可以幫助他們的夢想成真!

    同時間,馬哥孛羅香港酒店、港威酒店、太子酒店的別注禮品店已經亮麗登場,由即日至本年12月26日為賓客提供原隻聖誕火雞、朱古力、曲奇、節日蛋糕及更多美食。昨晚試吃了曲奇,好好吃的!同時三間酒店也有不同的聖誕大餐推出,詳細可瀏覽網站/Facebook~

    同時間,在馬哥孛羅香港酒店的 大堂酒廊 Lobby Lounge,最近剛與法國巴黎首飾品牌 Les Néréides 合作,推出又美又好吃的 Ballet de Saveurs a la Francaise Afternoon Tea 法式芭蕾下午茶 ($348位/$468兩位)~

     

    IMG_6069.jpg

     

    不說不知,Les Néréides 的經典芭蕾舞系列已經踏入10週年,故大廚非常用心設計下午茶,加入不少法國及芭蕾舞原素在茶點之中,如以朱古力打造了一雙精緻的粉紅色芭蕾舞鞋,又置放 Les Néréides 裝飾放於蛋糕上,幾可亂真呢!

     

    IMG_6062.jpg

     

    除了享受下午茶配心選咖啡/茶,食客也可加$150/$280配 Perrier-Jouët Grand Brut 香檳一杯/兩杯,帶來更曼妙的感受~媽媽及兩兄妹學芭蕾不成,但來享用一頓美好的芭蕾下午茶,沾染一下優雅的氣息,也不錯呢!

     

    IMG_6078.jpg

     

    也簡介一下食物:鹹點包括水牛芝士番茄香草醬三文治、法國軟芝士牛角包、煙火雞三文治,以及我很喜歡的煙三文魚及三文魚籽法式小甜包,有姿勢也有實際啊!

     

    IMG_6087.jpg

     

    甜點更加繽紛,包括紅桑子荔枝蛋糕、士多啤梨開心果奶凍、芒果蛋白卷、伯爵茶馬卡龍,以及最得我心的榛子朱古力慕絲,及藍莓紐約芝士餅~再加上提子鬆餅及玫瑰瑪德蓮蛋糕,還有伴碟的鑽石啫喱及芭蕾鞋朱古力,非常飽足!

     

    IMG_6096.jpg

     

    法式芭蕾下午茶由即日至2018年1月31日,每日下午3:00-5:30供應;惠顧者還可獲優惠券,於香港 Les Néréides 店舖購物享$100折扣優惠;好友更有幸中獎,獲得美美的禮品,恭喜她啊!

  2. Last week, I visited The Joomak at Harbour City again to sample some of their new winter creations. Introduced with a series of warm Korean-style hotpot, there are two hotpot soup bases to choose including a Ginseng Chicken soup and a Vegan Prickly Pear Carbonara soup.

    The prickly pear carbonara soup base is basically soy milk colored with prickly pear, not only is it nutrition-packed, it is also made with vegan cheese that makes it perfect for vegetarian. The soup base is very creamy and hearty, not too heavy and of course, very rich in soybean flavor.

    The hotpot comes with Hanwoo beef platter and a vegetarian platter, including a big bundle of white fungus over the thinly sliced beef, kimchi cuttlefish and dace fish pastes; kale, pumpkin, purple potato and corn. My favourites are the crunchy crystalline iceplant as well as the soya knot that boils amazingly silky in the soup.

    In addition, we opt for a vegan cheese seaweed rice, which you will add into the remaining soup base and cook until it turns risotto-like.

    I also loved the deep-fried Korean Ginseng with a hint of bitterness, whilst a soothing cup of turmeric latte is particularly remarkable, made with turmeric, cinnamon, ginger juice and almond milk.

  3. 自己對韓國其實無咩好感,唯二鍾意嘅係韓國菜同韓國菜(自行理解),尤其喺英國嘅日式燒肉唔常見,韓式燒肉就成為咗代替品,食得仲密過喺香港果陣。呢間舖雖然旺角都有分店,不過旺角估計人多難等位,就走去樂富呢邊,屋村地方應該坐得舒服啲又唔使咁趕。

    IMG_4345_%25E8%25AA%25BF%25E6%2595%25B4%25E5%25A4%25A7%25E5%25B0%258F.JPG
    果然就算正值晚飯時間,都可以順利walk in有位,如果係旺角要等卡位真係睇吓時運高唔高。即刻睇個餐牌,見到有二人同三人套餐,睇落又唔算貴,不過裡面無燒肉都係散叫啱我啲。


    IMG_4339_%25E8%25AA%25BF%25E6%2595%25B4%25E5%25A4%25A7%25E5%25B0%258F.JPG

    我係好鍾意食燒牛舌($85),所以叫咗客,呢度嘅牛舌係薄切版,個人比較鍾意厚切多啲嘅老實講,不過以份量計佢咁多塊其實都幾抵。塊牛舌食落去唔係爽脆嘅口感,而係比較軟熟嫩滑,仿如食高級牛肉。

    IMG_4347_%25E8%25AA%25BF%25E6%2595%25B4%25E5%25A4%25A7%25E5%25B0%258F.JPG
    軟嫩牛舌份量夠

    作為港豬當然要食吓同類,佢有隻濟洲島黑毛豬五花腩($85),唔知又有咩唔同?睇見佢紋理分佈都幾平均,同時又無話太多肥膏,似乎唔錯。塊五花腩無經過醃制都幾大膽,證明佢對塊肉好有信心。食落果然無令我失望,肉香夠突出同時無膻味,有丹麥豬嘅感覺,少少油脂令味道更豐富,果然一分錢一分貨。

    IMG_4348_%25E8%25AA%25BF%25E6%2595%25B4%25E5%25A4%25A7%25E5%25B0%258F.JPG
    不肥不膩靚豬腩

    喺愛丁堡食過韓國人開嘅餐廳,仲係米芝蓮級數嘅燜豬肋骨,熱辣辣食都OK,一凍咗甜到飛起,鬼佬就係鬼佬…返到嚟香港試返亞洲口味,就揀咗個細嘅紅燜牛肋骨($98)。雖然係細Size但份量唔細,可以兩至三個人分。牛肋骨都幾大舊,嫌麻煩可以叫店員剪細舊易入口啲。牛肋骨肉食落就似長時間燜煮嘅牛腩,幾乎係入口即融,而且唔會得個甜字,加埋個汁夠我送幾碗白飯。

    IMG_4360%2B-%2B%25E8%25A4%2587%25E8%25A3%25BD.JPG
    煲仔牛肋夠入味

    無碳水化合物就唔會飽肚嘅,既然叫咗燒肉就唔揀石頭鍋飯避免熱氣,就揀水冷麵($70)嚟食。冷麵嘅麵條幾滑溜,湯底帶酸夠醒胃,配燒肉食就可以消除油膩感再食多啲,亦啱晒夏天悶熱無胃口時食。

    IMG_4349_%25E8%25AA%25BF%25E6%2595%25B4%25E5%25A4%25A7%25E5%25B0%258F.JPG
    清涼冷麵夠醒胃

    食燒肉又無理由唔飲酒,但啤酒略嫌普通,燒酎唔係我杯酒,就試下隻韓國農酒($100)。倒出嚟米白色,同日本嘅濁酒有啲相似,查一查原來農酒即係韓國濁酒,比我算中比我算中比我算中。農酒飲落去甜甜地,有啲似日本新年果陣飲嘅甘酒,酒精度就比甘酒高,不過無咩酒味適合氹女仔飲。

    IMG_4405_%25E8%25AA%25BF%25E6%2595%25B4%25E5%25A4%25A7%25E5%25B0%258F.JPG

    喺拉絲芝士炸雞部隊鍋充斥嘅年代,食返啲正常嘅韓菜係件愉快嘅事,而且水準都幾好。食到差唔多準備埋單去食甜品之際,阿姐遞咗盤橙過嚟,雖然只係值十元八塊,但又估你唔到喎。

    價錢:約$180

  4. 3 ITALIANI meaning three Italians is obviously opened by three Italians.

    IMG-20171107-WA0029.jpg

    At 3 ITALIANI, you can expect a good choice of authentic Italian gelato, chocolate and coffee.
    IMG_20171107_174142.jpg

    There are 30 different flavours of gelato and sorbet.
    (20 traditional Italian flavours and 10 Asian flavour on offer in Hong Kong).
    IMG_20171107_161434.jpg

    They are made in store everyday, free from preservatives, syrups and colouring which can be seen behind the glass.
    IMG_20171107_173616.jpg

    There are 5 flavours exclusively created for Hong Kong: 3 Italiani (mango, coconut and sponge cake), Chocolate Wasabi, English Trifle, Crema Antica and Chocolate sorbet.
    The chocolate sorbet is an interesting one because it still tastes of strong chocolate without the milk.
    Clearly English Trifle was my favourite being English.
    It is slightly different to the trifle with custard and jelly because it had cherries, dark choc, red velvet cakes, small amount of liqueur but it was still good.
    The best thing is that you can add whipped cream to it which I did.
    IMG_20171107_232840_219.jpg
    Great coffee:
    IMG_20171107_161049.jpg
    Also tried the waffle with nutella and cream, a great dessert to share:

    ずーっとずーっと行きたかった彩虹の牛池灣という村にある茶樓【新龍城茶樓】で朝飲茶をしました!
    旅行中、ひとりで飲茶をするのは初めて。しかも朝飲茶!
    今回はお仕事での訪問だったのでノンビリは出来ませんでしたが、地元のおじいちゃまたちに混ざって飲茶を堪能しました~。

    IMG_8731_R.jpg
    MTR彩虹駅C1出口を出るとこのような門構えが見えます。
    これ、香港の中心地ではあまりみかけませんが、郊外の「邨(村)」と呼ばれる集落の入り口には必ずあります。
    両サイドには市場が立ち並んでいて、ローカル感満載!!!!

    P6067521_R.jpg
    念願の訪問だよ~!「茶樓」という言い方は昔ながらの飲茶店という意味です。
    川龍村の『端記茶樓』『彩龍茶樓』などありますね。雰囲気、分かりますか?

    P6067525_R.jpg
    お店の前から獅子山(ライオンロック)が見えました。

    P6067517_R.jpg
    お店はこんな感じで窓はなく、ナイロンのカーテンで仕切られている感じ。この日は暑かったから中はエアコンガンガンだったけど、気持ちのいい季節はこのカーテンは開けるのかな?
    お店の奥にはちゃんと店内席がありますが、手前のカーテンの内側の席は屋外テラスのような雰囲気なのです。
    P6067487_R.jpg
    こんな感じ。店内だけど屋外みたい!そして朝だからオジイとオバア率高い~。いいねいいね!こういうのに混じりたかった!

    P6067485_R.jpg
    大きなテーブルで可愛いおじいちゃまと相席させていただきました。おじいちゃま、何食べてるのかな?
    そして奥をみると分かりますが、店内だけど店内じゃないでしょ?(笑)。

    P6067481_R.jpg
    上には鳥かごがつるされていました。小鳥のさえずりを聞きながら飲茶なんて乙じゃないですか~。

    P6067493_R.jpg
    洗杯ボウルがオレンジのプラスチック製でレトロ感たっぷり!

    P6067506_R.jpg
    一人だったので食べられたのはコレが限界。
    『蘿蔔糕(ダイコン餅)』『蝦餃(エビ餃子)』『大包』は巨大肉まんで鶏肉がたっぷり入っています。
    これで50HKDくらいでした。

    P6067503_R.jpg
    小鳥に混じってスズメちゃんもやってきた!思わず『大包』の皮をあげてしまいました。
    実は子供の頃、スズメを飼っていたことがあるのです~。
    (怪我をしたスズメを祖母が捕獲したので治るまで飼っていただけですが・・・)

    P6067523_R.jpg
    特別何かが美味しいわけではありませんが、地元の人に混じって飲茶・・・雰囲気が抜群でした。
    飲茶は朝4:00~14:30まで。夜も営業しているようなので、今度はゆっくり行ってみたいな。そしてこの界隈も散策したい!!!

  6. the-drunken-pot-1-150x150.jpg

    The Drunken Pot has been in Hong Kong for almost two years now (with a newer branch located in Causeway Bay), serving up a range of hot pot broths and unique dishes. After living in Hong Kong for six years, I really want to love hot pot, so I went back to The Drunken Pot (my third hot pot experience) to give it another go. The restaurant decor is dark and modern, with plenty of tables and a small outdoor terrace. For someone who is relatively new to hot pot, the service wasn’t particularly helpful, so we winged it 99% of the time. While I could appreciate the unique flavor concepts and dishes, I did find the price-point to be high.

    Vibe at The Drunken Pot

    When we arrived at The Drunken Pot TST at 8:30 pm, there was still a fairly large queue outside the restaurant. Although we were seated fairly promptly, it actually took over 15 minutes before we could track someone down who spoke English and who could take our order. That being said, when we did place our order, the food came out promptly, though the staff struggled to explain the dishes to us. While I used to think The Drunken Pot was more of a “Western friendly” hot pot place, if you’ve never been to hot pot before, I would recommend going with people who know what they’re doing.

    Hot Pot

    the-drunken-pot-4-1024x683.jpg the-drunken-pot-2-1024x683.jpg the-drunken-pot-3-683x1024.jpg

    We ordered one of the newest additions to their menu: The Vagabond Pot (HK$298). The pot consisted of four different broths: chicken in Chinese wine (“Drunken Chicken”), fish in beer, seafood in sake, and oxtail in red wine & tomato. My favorites were the oxtail and the spicy seafood in sake. To dunk in, we had the very Instagrammable Local Hand-cut Beef. After only a few seconds in the broth, these thinly sliced pieces of beef were ready to be devoured. Although they were cute, the pink black truffle, beef, and cheese dumplings (HK$88) were a bit of an odd combination. The simple deep-fried homemade bean curd and seaweed rolls (HK$58) were delicious after a quick swim in the broth. We also added a mushroom platter (HK$58) in an attempt to feel a little more healthy. There was a good variety of mushrooms and they soaked up whichever broth we threw them in. Finally, the handmade seven-color cuttlefish balls (HK$88) were a very interesting take on a Hong Kong classic. Personally, I’m a huge fan of fish balls, but some of the flavors here were a bit too far out (like the strawberry and carrot ones) for my liking. We also had a variety of seafood and three “fortune bag” dumplings, but at this point we were ready to be rolled out of the restaurant.

    Verdict

    The Drunken Pot offers more of a modern take on Hong Kong’s traditional hot pot scene. I would recommend going if you’ve ever been curious about it. That being said, don’t expect exceptional service and don’t go if you’ve never been to hot pot before, as you’re not given much help or guidance from the staff. I liked that the broth had different flavors to it and wasn’t that numbing broth I’ve had from more local hot pot joints. Finally, The Drunken Pot isn’t cheap. There were only two of us (mind you, we did leave absolutely stuffed) and our bill came to around HK$1,500 without any alcohol.

  7. As a kid, I have always made fairy cakes from cake mixes bought from Sainsbury's.
    They come in basic flavours like chocolate or vanilla with different themes from time to time.
    The chocolate one I got was the pirate.

    IMG_20171104_140742_744.jpg

    Normally for girly themes, it would be the vanilla packs and the boyish themes are the chocolate cupcakes.
    Compared to the cake mixes when I was a child, it used to be printed rice paper in the set but now they give you sugar paste decorations which is pretty but I prefer rice paper!
    VID_20171104_15333_5212.jpg

    Pretty idiot proof, you just mix egg and water, put the mixtures into the cake case, bake and garnish with icing sugar and the sugar paste decorations.

    IMG_20171104_164837.jpg
    IMG_20171104_165237.jpg

    Anyway, I thought they tasted good because the cake itself wasn't too sweet because I tried it without the icing so adding the icing makes the sweetness just right.
    The moistness of the cake was not too bad as well.

    For best results use a metal cupcake baking tray if you have one!!

    從小就愛看神話故事,除了故事內容,神話人物和幻獸設定也是引人入勝之處。要數當中最喜歡的幻獸,獨角獸肯定是其中之一。

    IMG_1052.jpg

    距離上次「優遊饗宴」只是大約三個月的光陰,DK Cuppa Tea已經再次為大家帶來驚喜,這次的下午茶主題是「不朽純真」,正是和傳說中的獨角獸有關。

    IMG_1282.jpg

    傳說獨角獸住在仙境一樣的森林,與世無爭,不易找到。DK Cuppa Tea先以有機棉花糖配薰衣草朱古力有機茶,營造出猶如仙境般的感覺。熱茶蒸發,熱氣溶化棉花糖,就像粉紅色的雲下著粉紅色的雨,優雅美麗。

    IMG_1268.jpg

    呷過花茶,口添芬芳,精神也抖擻起來。這次「不朽純真」下午茶和之前相比是有點反撲歸真,沒有華麗的餐具,但依舊有好吃的美食。

    IMG_1269.jpg

    從堆砌成花狀的四款咸點開始,煙三文魚餡餅檸檬香草肉絲餡餅香辣肉絲餡餅真純芝士餡餅,各有特色。

    IMG_1271.jpg

    旁邊獨立放置的香腸濃香芝士卷,沾上茄汁,也不讓其餘四款咸點專美。個人較喜愛煙三文魚餡餅香腸濃香芝士卷,前者餡餅酥脆,煙三文魚也咸香十足,後者芝士輕灼,香氣誘人,配合香腸酥卷,是無可抗拒的組合。

    IMG_1286.jpg

    咸點雖好,但下午茶的焦點永遠都在甜點。紅莓彩幻蛋糕獨角獸奇蹟曲奇繽紛獨角獸馬卡龍獨角獸翻糖蛋白餅杯,全都和獨角獸有關。當中最精緻的當然是獨角獸奇蹟曲奇,可愛造型在粉紅色的襯托之下,更讓人愛不釋手。其他如迷你蛋糕、馬卡龍等都非常可愛,是少女們夢寐以求的夢幻茶點。

    IMG_1272.jpg

    獨角獸翻糖蛋白餅杯中,除了有翻糖手指、棉花糖等,還插著一隻栩栩如生的白朱古力獨角獸。純白的外表,代表著美麗和純潔,這只獨角獸,你又忍心吃下去嗎?

    IMG_1277.jpg

    甜品眾多,但別忘了還有一個精緻的獨角獸盒子。把盒子打開,原來裡面藏著陣陣輕煙。待煙霧消散,原來盒子裡藏著兩顆拉脫維亞松露朱古力,紅粉啡黑,就像獨角獸收藏的寶藏,神秘難得。

    「不朽純真」下午茶不止少女喜歡,小朋友也喜歡。在個多小時的時光中,除了可在一片芳香中放鬆心情,還可以尋回兒時的純真。在你的內心深處,也有純真的獨角獸存在嗎?

  9. 又到蟹季,是時候要吃蟹,除了吃大閘蟹外,蟹粉也是不錯的選擇。 一於去上海姥姥吃個蟹粉宴吧,而且銅鑼灣開咗新店,當然要去感受下個新裝啦!
    L2090744-01.jpeg


    雪梨紅棗茶 $18 杞子菊花蜜 $18
    先來兩杯飲品,店方的飲品都是自家特製的。女孩子要補一補,我先來一杯紅棗茶,甜度適中,雪梨和紅棗的都很平衡,兩者的份量剛好,味道濃濃的,喜歡。 另外亦要一杯杞子菊花蜜來清熱,味道上清清的,甜度亦適中,喝後感覺下了不少火呢。

    L2090741-01.jpeg
    四喜烤麩HK$34 雞絲粉皮HK$38 溏心燻蛋 HK$36
    吃上海菜,當然要先來一些冷盤; 份量上可選標準或輕盈,這樣就可以吃多數款吧。 三款冷盤都是我喜歡的,烤麩味道帶甜香; 雞絲粉皮亦不錯,粉皮的質感剛剛好,帶彈牙; 溏心燻蛋亦做得很好,帶著煙燻香,蛋味又香又濃,當中的溏心入口creamy, 很喜歡。
    L2090747-01.jpeg

    蟹粉扒素鵝 $108
    從小到大都很喜歡吃素鵝,喜歡那香脆的外層; 這裡的做得不錯,外層十分香脆,店方一點也不吝嗇,淋上了大量的蟹粉,感覺上更加的矜貴; 多了蟹粉的素鴨,味道上更加豐富呢。
    L2090749-01.jpeg
    特上蟹粉小籠包 $78
    在上海店,當然要吃小籠包,皮薄餡靚,一咬開便有很多的湯汁流出。
    L2090759-01.jpeg
    蟹粉炒年糕 $98
    我是超愛吃糯米的食物,所以不得不來一份蟹粉炒年糕。年糕炒得剛好,十分煙韌,蟹粉味道很鮮,兩者配在一起不錯,
    比平日吃的炒年糕特別得多了。
    L2090753-01.jpeg

    黃金蟹粉炒飯 $98
    說到蟹粉,個人覺得蟹粉炒飯是不得不吃的! 由於蟹粉份量很多,所以每一口飯都有蟹粉,就像在吃蟹粉撈飯一樣,自己都覺得有點過份呢 :P 但蟹粉就是要這樣吃才夠過癮吧! 而炒飯亦做得不錯,飯粉分明,炒得乾身,即使撈上蟹粉,也不會覺得很濕。

    L2090761-01.jpeg

    酒釀丸子 $28
    有人說,美滿的一餐一定要吃甜點,所以最近都一定會吃甜點。而上海菜之中,我最喜歡吃的是酒釀丸子,這是我從小到大都很喜歡的糖水。這裡的酒釀丸子做得非常好,丸子十分煙韌,酒釀味道濃郁,糖水不是稀稀的那種。愛丸子的我,一次過吃數碗也沒有問題呢。

    吃過後,覺得這裡的蟹粉菜式美味之餘,蟹粉份量亦不少,而且價格上是超划算的,所以喜歡蟹粉的朋友一定要來喔!

  10. 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

  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_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.

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

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

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

    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!

    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

  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.

  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.

    Fleaurage Perfume making

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

    20151121-IMG_2016

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

    Renault Fleaurage

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

    20151121-IMG_2015

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

    Never Too Sweet Own Scent!

    Never Too Sweet Own Scent!

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

    20151121-IMG_2013

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

    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

    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

    Rapsberry sorbet with fresh berries and meringue

    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.

    Huge thank you to Renault Australia and Soda Communications for hosting another fantastic event and for inviting us. What more could I ask for delicious food, great fun and even better company!
