  1. 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.

    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!

    Portuguese egg tarts were also available!!

    Restaurant interior filled with plenty sunlight.

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

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

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

    34

    35

    Enjoyed stunning ocean view even in the bath! 

    36

    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.

    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

  2. 大家很熟悉那七色小籠包吧,同一集團新開了一間樂天經典,吃的東西當然不一樣吧。

    2.jpg
    酥烤豬肉蝦棗 $68
    很熱氣的食物,但卻十分吸引;外層炸得超香脆,當中的蝦肉彈牙,與豬肉混在一起,十分的美味呢。


    3.jpg
    老鼠粉煲 $108
    個人很少吃老鼠粉,總覺得不吸引的。而這份老鼠粉比想像中吸引,味道帶鮮,老鼠粉彈牙,當中的配料亦有很多,份量不少,這是小鍋已足夠3-4人享用呢。

    4.jpg
    龍虎燴 $468
    這個吃起來有點像喇沙,味道十分濃郁,當中有隻大大隻的肉蟹,喜歡吃蟹的朋友應該不會失望吧;除了蟹,還有很多蝦;底下還有很多的米線,單吃這個煲已經很飽呢。

    5.jpg
    香酥南乳五花肉 $88
    五花肉真的很肥喔,就是因為肥,所以特別的美味呢。名符其實的香酥,炸得十分鬆脆,一定要趁熱吃喔。

    6.jpg
    四大天王 (秋葵、甜豆、四季豆、茄子) $68
    甚麼是四大天王? 就是有四款素菜,想不到這個頗美味的,味道上帶點辣,十分的開胃。

    7.jpg
    金牌脆皮燒雞 $168
    雞肉很嫩,雞味亦濃郁,雞皮亦十分的香脆,不算特別喜歡吃雞的我也覺得這個雞不錯呢。

    8.jpg
    金絲麥片 $138(S)
    是晚最愛的菜式,第一次吃麥皮蝦,本來以為味道一般,想不到如此的美味;蝦是超大隻的,而且十分爽口彈牙。蝦沾上帶甜香的麥皮,味道是十分的相配呢。

    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。 ❛◡❛✿

  4. Quarry lacks good Italian food and Ask for Alonzo just hits the spot with Southern Italian dishes in a trattoria environment.Discovered this joint after going to the Tong Chong Street market.
    There is an alfresco table where you can have drinks before dinner.

    The menu had a good choice of variety.

    0CP84T8456216EAF366F53px.jpg

    Started with the bread with was accompanied with basil puree rather than the usual olive oil and balsamic.
    I loved the basil puree as it complimented the bread very well.
    0CP84S81D3A478F5638EEDpx.jpg

    For starters, had the burrata cheese with extra parma ham for +HKD60.
    0CP84U5B3E4DE00B89BB93px.jpg


    Basically all my favourites on one plate on a bed of colourful Heirloom tomatoes in all colours which were juicy and umami taste to the max along with the creamy burrata.
    The extra ham gave it the salty flavours and goes very well with tomatoes and the burrata too.
    Next were the meatballs which were topped with chunky grated Mozzarella cheese. 
    Each meatball was big and tasty loaded with herbs which accentuated the flavour as well as the chopped tomato sauce.
    0CP84N2E7EFF6F44E94C43px.jpg


    As well as the meats, the Zoodles are the best because they were juicy and crunchy without any grassy taste and the hazelnuts gave it a nutty balance to it.
    0CP84MF6C165544A587C96px.jpg

    For pasta, had the mixed mushroom and truffle fettuccine served with poached egg. It was good how it was not too creamy so you could taste everything from the truffles to the delicate egg.
    0CP84O69579C60051733BBpx.jpg

    Finished with the panna cotta and tiramisu which was a perfect ending complimented with aromatic coffee.
    0CP84R4460A9D9D47F2A0Fpx.jpg

    The panna cotta was creamy and sinfully delicious as it was made with double cream while the tiramisu was equally as good spiked with liquer.
    0CP84Q92E61C264709EB03px.jpg

    0CP84P6B7405ACF56CFB3Dpx.jpg

    Will definitely check it out again for the other dishes.

  5. 說起德國,大家想到的有甚麼?世界盃,足球名星或是benz?如果說’德國菜’,浮現的應該不外烤腸仔,燒豬手和大杯啤酒.德國菜在很多人心目中都是份量又大又膩又肉淋淋的almost primitive cuisine,但事實並不如想像般單調.

    屈指一算,2019年1月剛好是我blogger生涯十週年。從當初只在「開飯」寫文,到現在主要在Instagram發放美食照片,我不諱言寫文熱情已經大幅減退,但有些餐廳或食物我還是很想用文字記錄下來,就像每年都有限定拉麵的拉麵台風。

    IMG_1053.jpg

    去年是拉麵台風六週年,每年十二月該店都會推出限定拉麵,引來大批粉絲排隊,而且一年比一年多。去年因事未能參與,應該是我在荃灣店第一次缺席。今年本想早點來排隊,但來到後竟發現人龍已經排至近大河道巴士站處,真的嚇了一跳!

    IMG_1124.jpg

    幸好,後來發現友人叮爺原來已在人龍的較前位置,而且也多拿了一張點餐紙,我就不客氣的一起等待了。

    IMG_1129.jpg

    台風在香港有兩家分店,分別是荃灣和旺角。2018年回歸東京再開了東京crab台風,今年順理成章以「蟹」作為週年限定拉麵主題,那就是Miso★Crab拉麵了。

    IMG_1135.jpg

    等了差不多一小時終於可以入座,也剛好看到兩位元祖師傅伊東さん和馬場さん並肩作戰。

    IMG_1134.jpg

    和每一年一樣,週年限定拉麵不設特殊配搭。看著一碗又一碗的拉麵煮好,感覺十分治癒。

    IMG_1147.jpg

    我的Miso★Crab拉麵終於來到!賣相一貫台風等色,中間小圓球卻不是骨膠原,而是特別為六週年製作的「特製軟綿綿蟹豆腐」。

    IMG_1155.jpg

    以蟹肉製成的蟹豆腐,口感軟綿,味道清香,有淡淡的蟹肉味。

    IMG_1160.jpg

    Miso★Crab拉麵的靈魂當然是那融合味噌、蟹和豚骨的濃湯。根據店方所說使用的蟹出汁是從日本空運到荃灣本店,而味噌則是採用福井縣180年老字號「米五みそ」出品。慢慢細味一下,的確能嚐到蟹、豚骨和味噌的味道,尤其是味噌的醇香最為特別,和蟹豆腐一起甚有火花,非常美味!

    IMG_1152.jpg

    半熟蛋一向是台風的主角之一,但這次的賣相和味道感覺都和平常的有點不同,原來是參考了東京crab台風的燻製鵪鶉蛋製作方法。這顆「燻製半熟蛋」味道較平常更香,流心度也更好,讓我好想馬上飛去東京試試鵪鶉蛋版本!

    IMG_1157.jpg

    週年限定同樣是雙叉燒,角切與原片,提供兩種不同口感。

    IMG_1158.jpg

    每年限定拉麵都會找南天拉麵特別製麵條,所以賣完即止。 今年的是曲麵條,讓濃湯更容易掛在麵上。

    IMG_1162.jpg

    $50的價錢真心超值,感謝招待。

    IMG_2156.jpg

    離去之時看到牆上掛著友人Tubbyfellow每一年繪製的簽名板,第五年來不到真有點遺憾。

    IMG_1127.jpg

    期待七週年的驚喜,再見!

  7. 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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

  8. 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_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!

    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.

  10. 經過頭昏腦漲的PN/CN遊戲,銀行開戶算是簡單一點,但根據你擁有PN或CN會有不同做法。我們比較常看到的瑞典銀行,有Swedbank、Handelsbanken、SEB等。HSBC和Bank of China不是沒有但性質不同,相信跟我們也無關。

    由於到埗後需要不少資金(一般租屋也要一租一押甚至更多),你又不能快速在瑞典開戶再由香港匯錢過來(不像英國假如你在香港有HSBC戶口,可以在香港辦文件然後在英國開戶),如何不帶現金在瑞典提款就變得相當重要。

    59c3beb970552f0e00157d2e_medium_Bankomat_kontantcenter_helv%25C3%25A4gg.jpg
    此為斯德哥爾摩最常見提款機,瑞典的銀行似乎沒有自己名義的提款機(圖片來源:https://bankomat.se/

    香港的提款卡主要分為銀聯和銀通兩種(更正:應分成HSBC+恆生銀行的ETC,以及其他銀行的銀通),在靠北鄰近國家後幾乎是銀聯獨市,而銀聯在這裡甚至歐洲是不太可能成功提款(在英國相對容易),最好是申請一張Plus/cirrus卡方便提款,也有做法是用信用卡透支再即時存入相應金額避免收取高昂利息,但手續費如何就要看銀行了。關於用香港卡於瑞典提款的詳細請向自己的銀行查詢,但切勿相信銀聯卡能在瑞典提款,我在斯德哥爾摩都沒遇過。

    歐美近年流起的虛擬銀行如monzo、relovut等,可將錢由實體銀行存入再在瑞典提款,但香港似乎未正式投入服務,而且提款額和次數也有限制,頂多是適合目前在歐洲工作假期中的朋友選擇。

    基於提款實在麻煩也難估算手續費,所以能多帶瑞典幣最好多帶(三萬元真的是最低消費)。另外旅行支票千萬別開,極不方便的東西,甚至他們覺得支票是種舊時代產物(支票才實在好吧)。


    再來談瑞典銀行開戶,如你擁有PN,則要去指定稅局辦理ID card並收到後再來開銀行,請先上網查詢哪一間可做ID card並預約,而且要預先繳費(2018年為400sek)。有了ID card才能申請BankID (類似電子ID)和Swish(瑞典的電子錢包)。

    index.pngindex.jpg

    如果不申請ID card又行不行?我猜有工作合約應該可以(求指敎),但有ID card比較容易開戶(下述),再加上有BankID 和電子錢包的便利,我覺得還是弄ID card較好,因為搬家可以用BankID進行遷移手續。

    CN的情況你須有工作合約,銀行才會開戶,兼職的也可以。沒有合約的話⋯對銀行來說要維持一個沒錢的戶口也是要資源,誰會想幫窮鬼搞這個。未收到CN但有工作合約仍可開戶,銀行會做一個假的CN去處理,但當我有CN後打算去銀行打算修改,銀行說沒有BankID 是改不了,但有BankID 代表有PN,情況不適用,最後銀行只會有他們作的假CN︳反而沒有真正在稅局註冊的真CN(很蠢)。總之,PN不是萬能,沒有PN卻萬萬不能,然而PN無人能百分百肯定申請成功,CN就只有外國人的對待本地人的重擔,連打工都比人麻煩,這國家…

    哪到底選擇哪一間銀行?老實說我不知道,香港有分行的銀行有SEB和Handelsbanken兩間  (資料來源:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_banks_in_Hong_Kong),當時Handelsbanken是離家最近的就選了它,它的境內分行似乎也較多。

    IMG_8829-.jpgIMG_8830-.jpg
    申請文件

    申請文件可以拿回家做,不過反正可以填的不多,填表也肯定有不懂填的地方,為免回頭就在當下解決吧。
    房東兒子推介ICA bank,他說可以在ICA購物時同時提款,在歐盟國內提款也沒手續費。
    有人嘗試去Swedbank開戶,但因沒有PN(自然沒ID card),需要先預約開戶,竟然要等兩個月以上,再加處理時間恐怕三個月無法出糧(除非出現金或支票),結果我比較晚申請反而比較早完成。

    個人認為我們只是短期居留,揀哪一間分別不大,我的handelsbanken mastero 沒記錯要三百元年費,其他銀行要多少我就不知道了,但我的debit card無法做網上交易。我認為先挑一間方便自己的吧,以我的handelsbanken為例,它在最後要到所屬分行拿文件完成手續,收到卡後也要到銀行開通,所以不要為難自己。

    題外話,我的申請當時已經到了收密碼的階段,但我房東以為是他已取消的戶口再寄卡給他,結果他拿去銀行退掉並說沒有其他人住在他的地址(銀行說法),房東兒子說法是他們收到沒名字的提款卡和信封上只有房東名字沒有我的名字(多謝C/O令寄信變得複雜)。

    幸好我剛好去銀行處理事情才知道這件事,然後銀行懷疑我盜用別人地址並說他們可以報警處理,我當時有簽合約也有房東簽名,拿出合約後銀行說如果要重新發卡就要和房東一起向他們確認我的身份。

    後來卡收到了,接著密碼信又等了好幾天房東兒子才拿給我,還跟我說沒寫我的名字,然後明明我的名字在他爹的名字上面。坑爹啊?即是舊卡不是沒寫我名字而是他們沒看到啊?

    最後是成功取得提款卡了,本來大概三至四星期的手續白白多搞兩星期,而且明明我沒有做錯任何事,卻同時受銀行和房東兩方的責備,心hen累…

  12. 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.

    接著 英式炸魚漢堡配炸薯條 Fish and Chips Burger ($178) 及 蘑菇芝士牛肉竹炭漢堡 Beef Charcoal Black Burger with Mushroom and Cheese ($188) 也上檯了;前者炸魚份量極大,又有薯條及豐富 buffet,根本不用外層麵包已經很飽;芝士牛肉漢堡更是無比厚身,肉味又濃厚,適合無肉不歡的牛魔王。

    而個人兩大心水推介,是最便宜及最貴的項目。最便宜的是 白汁煙肉意大利粉 Carbonara ($158),因為真的煮得香濃好吃,意粉又夠 al dente,折後只是$143.8還連 buffet,非常抵食!而 龍蝦帶子燴意大利飯 Braised Lobster Meat and Scallop Risotto ($198) 則除了半邊爆膏龍蝦,還有三大粒香煎過的帶子,意大利飯本身又入味好吃,折後$181物有所值啊!

  14. Ever since I went to Swedish National day, I have fallen in love with Nordic food because I can relate to it.
    Discovered Rye House from another Swedish event where they were doing a collaboration with the Mäckish Girls a while ago during the weekend.
    After trying that, I was determined to come back to try the food from Rye House!
    0CLSZV59177CFBD8D19CA8px.jpg
    0CLSZU075F05F2F778672Epx.jpg


    There is so much on the menu and they have a salad bar as well.
    0CLSZYF87F6295B01C14EApx.jpg
    0CLSZZF97DE76DC9AD897Epx.jpg
    0CLSZT733485210D09FCBApx.jpg
    The reason why I can relate to Nordic food is that they use a lot of bread and potatoes which is basically the same as the diet in UK.
    Interestingly their snacks are really similar to us in terms of flavours and they also have this similar snack to Wotsits!!

    0CLSZX6E0E59D8CA0BBF98px.jpg
    0CLSZW3E04B85D16247A09px.jpg

    ==========
    Started with the Egg Pie which was on my mind since the first visit!

    0CLSZPF9AED4786CDB0A06px.jpg
    This was so delicious because the pastry tasted like a thin crispy Ryvita tart filled with potatoes that were silky and viscous topped with creamy egg just like the stuff you get in egg mayo sandwiches.
    It is so comforting to see lots of similar ingredients like their prawn and dill filling which tastes just like our Prawn and Mayo filling but with dill in it.
    ==========
    Next was the Nordic Hash (Pyttipannu) , again a really simple but comforting dish that is good on a winters day.
    It was diced and fried cubes of potatoes that were fluffy and soft with a perfectly browned edge complemented by fresh organic eggs and pieces of meat.
    Basically a delicious dish that you can eat all day or for brunch.

    0CLSZO0E132196C647BDB9px.jpg
    ==========
    Last but not least was the Finnish Creamy Salmon Soup .
    0CLSZQ38E0586CDCB24FBApx.jpg

    I loved it because it wasn't heavy with chunks of pink salmon and lots of dill.
    There was a little butter in it to give it that beautiful golden glow as well enhancing the taste.
    All was good and I was shocked that even their hot chocolate was so heavenly.
    Will definitely come back again.
    0CLSZRC4B225CD44860EB5px.jpg
    I appreciate the them using environmentally friendly straws which are actually real plant straws.
    Basically using rye straws for drinking which are biodegradable!

    The CNY aside, February is always a busy yet rewarding month for men and women alike. We plan what to buy, where to dine, and how to spend the romantic night together. Everwhere you have special treats and menu for Valetine…

    As I can hardly resist a nice afternoon tea, I was excited to try the Island Shangri-la’s recent special that is only available for a short while. As if a decent cuppa and fine little sweets are not enough, this afternoon tea came with Pierre Jouet’s Rose. Having afternoon tea in a Harbour-side hotel with your loved ones sounds, I know, cliché, but you do have a decent Champange here to brighten things up. It was foggy day when I was there for a media event; that glass of champagne was particularly helpful.
    IMG_5524.jpg
    The scone here is commendable; it is difficult to find a nice piece of scone these days, even in London, let alone in Hong Kong. I was still haunted by my recent experience in one of the big name hotels in London, but the scone here was a pleasant surprise, though it is by no means perfect. It got a nice fluffy texture; it would be better if it is more buttery. The flavour needs some more work. I had much worse but I indeed had better ones.
    IMG_5530.jpg
    IMG_5565.jpg


     

    The menu was, I presume, tailored to suit the champagne. I found the lobster sandwich, Alaskan crabmeat sandwich and foie gras terrine went particularly well with the champagne. The champagne marinated Gravlax was very refreshing; could be a good appetizer for my dinner.
    IMG_5558.jpg

    Many of the sweets are worth trying. I would recommend the cherry and champagne cheesecake and the mascarpone and champagne rollcake. I am not a big fan of cheesecake but I did like this one. It was not heavy at all and actually quite balanced between the cheesy and sweet flavours. The rollcake was very moist and filled with creamy mascarpone. Shangri-La should consider keeping these items in their cake shop. But it was the Amour cake that won the day. It was beautifully constructed sponge cake with champagne infused cream layers, with shiny bubbles on top, possibly a tribute to the champagne. I could easily finish my slice.

    Apart from the tiny glitches here and there, this thematic afternoon tea was beautiful. The chef’s effort in pairing the food with the champagne was particularly commendable. There was no “tea” per se here; this French interpretation of tea works just fine for me.

  18. Right, I am a morning person who can't skip breakfast for a day and in Dubai, I was so much looked forward to the breakfast time everyday 'coz there were just too many nice places around to enjoy a lovely brekkie to kick start a day. My friend brought us to this cafe & restaurant, Shakespeare and Co. to have a Full English Breakfast in a truly English atmosphere.

    9058533166_b95e750994_o.jpg

    The crafted glass cake cabinet has instantly unveiled the vintage feel.

    9056310691_a0e92cb7ee_o.jpg

    Once I stepped inside, whoa! I was like being brought into the imaginative world of Shakespeare!! Look at all those photos below, do they look like in the fairy tale? They are all sweet and colourful!

    Toasts and butter, served along with a tray of cute mini Bonne Maman jam & honey.

    9058532764_5e768b1f1e_o.jpg

    The set includes a glass of fresh pressed juice and a cup of tea or coffee. Here came my grapefruit juice, which wasn't too sour nor bitter but just refreshing!

    9058532726_3e552647c6_o.jpg

    My friend's cup of Earl Grey, nothing much special about it indeed...

    9056310237_f3c4a224a8_o.jpg

    My own Caffe Latte. Not too bad but a bit too much milk to my liking.

    9058532708_2098fd7c12_o.jpg

    My friend's English Breakfast (AED50) with grilled beef bacon, turkey sausage, roasted potato, scrambled egg & baked beans. Their scrambled egg was generally too dry and not fluffy enough, while the beef bacon and turkey sausage were quite nice and tasted special as I never tried a bacon made of beef and sausage made of turkey before!

    9056310163_d27f0a2ec8_o.jpg

    My American Breakfast (AED50) with same dry & stiff scramble egg, sauteed mushrooms, beef bacon and hash brown. Everything on the plate was not remarkably good or surprising, except the hash brown that wasn't the ordinary frozen type but made from freshly shredded potato! I was impressed indeed!

    9058532526_09202e6dd4_o.jpg

    My hubby's American set was almost similar with mine, only with the scrambled egg being replaced by egg benedict. Another disaster on the egg benedict as the pouched eggs were overcooked and wait, where is the Hollandaise sauce for it??

    9058532486_32fc0bb85c_o.jpg

    This additional order, Savory Crepes with Smoked Salmon (AED33), should be the most delicious dish in our breakfast that day... The mixed greens was fresh & crisp and the crepe rolls were creamy with good dollop of lightly seasoned sour cream and fresh smoked salmon. Yummy!

    9056310053_d5f9d343a0_o.jpg

    Basically, the dining experience was great given such a dreamy atmosphere. Food quality was on average, which was more towards the positive side. Besides, indoor, alfresco dining is available too but the Sun was just too strong for me at that time. Yeah, I do recommend those who are visiting Dubai to spend a breakfast there.

    気が付けば1年があっという間に過ぎてしまい、年月の流れをより一層早く感じるこの頃です。
    来年2019年は年号が変わるという歴史的な年になりますね。
    平成が終わるって、ついこの前、平成に変わったように思いますが・・・。私も歳を取るわけだ(笑)。

    今年もたくさんの方にブログ、SNSを支えていただきありがとうございました。
    今年は家族の事情や思いがけず仕事が忙しい時期が続き、プライベートな時間が減少・・・。ブログ更新が思うように進みません。だんだん自分の好きなことだけを続けていくのが難しい歳になりました。
    忙しい日常の中でブログ更新が自分のプレッシャーになっていることに気づいてしまい、ここ数ヶ月悩んでおりました。
    新しい年を迎えるにあたり、ちょっと考えたこと・・・。

    2019年1月は1ヶ月ほどブログ更新をお休みします。
    新年は2月よりブログを再開予定でおります。

    楽しみにしてくださっている方も多いと思いますが、充電したいのでわがままをお許しください。
    新しい年は新しいことを始めようと思っています。その準備もしたいので少しお時間をいただけたら嬉しいです。
    皆さんが楽しんでくださるようなものを考えております。
    お休み中、FacebookとInstagramは時間を見て更新していく予定でいます。
    そちらは引き続きチェックをお願いしますね。

    今年は年の初めに香港の情報雑誌「GO Japan」さんの取材を受けて私の記事を掲載していただくという素晴らしいお仕事をさせていただきました。
    夏には企業様向けに香港旅行説明会をさせていただきました。
    どちらも新しい経験、刺激のある体験、とても良い人生の思い出となりました。
    年の初めに開催した「香港ウンチク話座談会」も楽しかったですね。来年は夏以降に開催を予定しております。
    2018年、香港には2度行きましたが、1回目は病み上がり、2回目は多忙な日々からの逃亡w。思うように香港を徘徊できなかったのが心残りです・・・。
    ま、香港はまた来年も行くし、たくさん課題もあるので(というか、この課題は何回通えばクリアできるのでしょうw)、また改めて楽しんで来たいと思います。

    そして多くの方から香港の情報提供、香港旅行の感想などなどメッセージをいただき、こういうのっていつも嬉しく拝見しています。
    皆さんが感じた香港、今後も是非メッセージで教えてくださると嬉しいです。

    何度通っても飽きない香港。大好きな香港。これからもずっと香港への思いは変わりません。
    そしてもっともっと日本の皆さんに、香港の魅力をお伝えしていけたらいいなと思っております。
    来年も微力ながら活動して参りますので、またお付き合いいただけたら幸いです。

    2018年もありがとうございました。
    2019年もよろしくお願いいたします。

    少し早いですが、皆様、良いお年をお迎えください。
    お正月休みを香港で過ごす方、楽しんで来てくださいね!!

  21. I've first read about Soft Creme from people's photo tag on instagram, and this ice-cream shop was so new that it wasn't even posted on OpenRice back then so I googled on it to get the address.  One day Missy Mo and I decided to go chill at Tai Hang, and Soft Creme immediately came into my mind.  We grabbed a quick bite then came here to check it out.  Probably because it was still new and not alot of people knew about it yet, there wasn't too long of a line-up.

    Ice-cream numbers 1-4 were made from Hokkaido milk (uh oh, I sense radiation) and A-D used cereal milk, not really sure what that was though.  I really wanted to try the special of the month which was the Moet champagne flavor but annoying Missy Mo rejected my craving and ordered the Flamed Bacon. sad
    Menu


    We were watching the food experts preparing the cups behind the counter and thought that we gotta try the Australian honeycomb next time.  Meanwhile, I also kept glimpsing at the cute cashier guy while waiting for our ice-cream... ;P
    03J1G63DC53B994C9C3A67m.jpg03J1FJ1068944B091A1FB2m.jpg


    They put dry ice at the bottom of the cup underneath the ice-cream to prevent it from melting too quickly since it's "soft" ice-cream and not the usual ones you take out from the Park n shop freezer.  I tried to take picture of the smokey effect (oooo, spooky) but was a tad bit late.  Anyway you get the point, I think the dry ice was just another gimmick but in terms of taste, the ice-cream was indeed very soft and was surprisingly good with the bacon bits.
    03J1G8E9DBB3817EAAF138m.jpg


    I went to Tai Hang again the following weekend but this time there was a long line-up outside the shop, and I'm never a fan of queues PLUS the cute cashier wasn't there this time...I will be back.

  22. Hey guys! How have you been? A lot of people have been wondering where the eff do I get the money to pay for all the fancy gyms and workouts I go to. Well, here’s what I will tell you – I’m usually not sponsored, and when I am I’ll fully disclose it. I believe in paying for things I deem worthy, and only when I try stuff for myself will I feel the pinch of pros and cons for reals.

    With that said, here’s the reveal – I am self-paid on Guava Pass. (Been on the $1,588/month 3-months unlimited* classes package – you’re tied in for 3 months but you pay per month). Read on if you want the real truth. #livingmytruth

    25035872_402971296825905_443218109869640

    me @ Warrior Academy

    What is Guava Pass?

    It is an aggregator of gyms around town that lets you pay one price and visit all sorts of fancy gyms. Literally the best ones in town, for less than HK$2000/month – meaning less than HK$200/class. Well what’s the catch? You only get to visit each gym 2 or 3 times a month.

    I think it started out being a way for people to try out gyms, get a taste of what they offer, or for travellers who just need a couple of classes when they’re in town. But for me, it turned into a hack to save some coins.

    Full disclosure of course there are other competitors a la KFIT but I find the selection of gyms on GP is better, and so the price is higher too.

    The Pros

    1. Money saved – Instead of paying $2-3000 per month for a membership at a kickboxing, or rebounding, or pilates gym, you pay almost half the price but get the same quality classes. Some of my haunts include Flex Studios, Pherform, Optimum Performance Studio, and Lemondrop Studio. I DIE for some of the kitted out vanity rooms of some places – and honestly isn’t that half the reason one would keep going back to the same gym? (minus the hot trainers)
    2. Variety – Don’t know about you, but I believe in a balanced workout as much as a balanced diet. That’s why most gyms offer yoga to counter the weight training or cardio. But with GP, I get to go the best classes, studios and instructors of my choosing. Kind of like a gym hit list if you will, that you can create and schedule your week around.
    3. Convenience – As a freelancer, I move around a lot. One week I’m mostly around Kennedy Town, the next week I may be stuck near Mongkok. GP lets me choose gyms that are convenient for me to get to instead of lugging my kit on a journey to the gym. It might not make sense for regular worker bees, but it does for me.

    The Cons

    1. Money wasted – If you don’t use your classes, you’re wasting money. If you cancel a class late, you get hit with $80 penalty. If you don’t go on at least 10 classes per month on an unlimited plan, each class you do go will decrease in value. All in all, you gotta be disciplined, or be prepared to spend some cash.P.S. you can pause your account when you go on holidays or want to take a short break.
    2. Inconsistency – Classes are harder to book than if you were an actual member of the gym. Makes sense for the gym, but probably not so much for you if you’re looking for some routine in your workout life. I probably only get to the same class once a month. Also probably won’t be able to book the same class as your friends – like I said, spots are quite limited.
    3. Discounted experience* – Gyms you visit aren’t designed for people who come and go. In all honesty, it will be harder to get to know the trainers and be a part of the communities. They might not take you seriously because they assume they won’t see you a second time. But if you’re only in for the workouts, then it probably won’t be something you see as a con.*But on the flip side I have made friends from all the different GP gyms just from one visit!
    4. Inconveniences? – There are times, maybe once or twice a month for me, where classes get cancelled because the class didn’t reach the headcount. But there are also times, where I rock up and unbeknowingly joined a personal training session because I was the only student. I’ve honestly had many a valuable lessons in pilates, weight training, functional training and more because of these accidental 1-on-1 sessions. So to me, NBD when a class gets cancelled once in a while. #yolo

    Me @ Feel Fit Factory

    TL;DR

    In conclusion… I love GP. If you’re a last minute kinda guy, or moves around town a lot, or want to try out the gyms and workouts before signing up, GP is great for you. If you’re short on cash and want the full experience of boujis gyms around town, GP is probably the only way to go as well. Like of course there are cons, but you take it knowing you are also paying less for the difference.

    IF you found this article helpful and want to try out Guava Pass, please do sign up via my link here and get some discounts.

    Everyone who has an account gets one, I’m not special or sponsored OR affiliated. Just another girl who’s trying to earn a few free classes from referrals. If you do end up signing up through my link, I sincerely thank you in advance ?

    Till next time,

  23. suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-12-150x150.

    I’m always on the hunt for a great hike that offers fantastic views of Hong Kong. I had heard about Suicide Cliff and after seeing some photos on social media, I knew I had to check it out for myself. Suicide Cliff Hike is an easy hike to get to, offers insane views of the city, and really isn’t that difficult.

    There are a few different ways to start the Suicide Cliff Hike. We chose to take the longer route because I didn’t want to hurt myself trying to climb up an incredibly steep hill (when we made it to the actual cliff, we saw people who had just climbed up it. They said it was crazy and that there was no way they would recommend it). We also wanted to go on a longer hike, so it just made sense to make a day out of it.

    Starting Point of the Suicide Cliff Hike Kong Kong

    Head to City One MTR Station and go out Exit D. Turn left and head down Chap Wai Kon Street – cross the street at the first crosswalk so you’re on the other side. Alternately: if you’re a bit pressed for time and/or want to avoid a relatively boring 30 minute walk to the start of the hike, take a taxi to the Wong Tai Nau Bus Terminus

    City One MTR to Wong Tai Nau Bus Terminus

    Continue walking down Chap Wai Kon Street until you reach Siu Lek Yuen Road. Turn right and keep going. After about 5 minutes, you’ll walk under an underpass. Turn left when you exit the underpass and continue walking up along Siu Lek Yuen Road. Eventually, you’ll see the Wong Tai Nau Bus Terminus on your left. Cross the street shortly after the terminus – you’ll see a set of stairs leading up. This is where the hike starts.

    Wong Tai Nau Bus Terminus to Kowloon Peak Viewing Point

    After you take the stairs up, head along the path to your left. You’ll pass a building on your left and will eventually reach the end of the path. Go right and walk down the road.

    suicide-cliff-hike-hong-kong-1-1024x768.

    After a few minutes, you will veer left and head into a more forested area with a walking path. Shortly after, you’ll again come to a crossroads with a map at the end of the stairs. At this point, turn right and continue along the path – you’ll now be walking along a rough stone path in the forest.

    After about 30 minutes, you’ll begin to see the path marked as “Maclehose Trail” – follow that and shortly after you’ll come up out of the forested area and onto a clear path on top of the mountain. You’ll walk along this path for a little while, but will dip back into the mountain and under some shade. You’ll also pass by a few ‘clearings’ that look similar to the second photo above. Just go through them and keep following the path.

    Afterwards, you’ll find yourself walking along an actual road. This road will take you directly to the Kowloon Peak Viewing Point. At the lookout area, you’ll see a gazebo. There are stairs leading up just behind the gazebo – it’s a short climb up to another view point (see second photo above). When you’re ready to move on, head along the path behind the gazebo that goes down.

    From here, simply follow the path until you can’t go any further. You’ll be hiking up and down a few mountains and will eventually come to a rock on your right with a great vantage point of the city – perfect for a quick photo before continuing on.

    The peaks will become much smaller and you’ll be able to see a television and radio transmission station in the distance. Once you reach the station, you’ll walk past a helipad and around the station. Continue along the path until you’ll have to climb down a cluster of big rocks.

    At this point, you’ll come to a large rock on the cliff that overlooks the Hong Kong harbour. At first, we were wondering if this was Suicide Cliff as we couldn’t see anything else around that rock. Thankfully, some other people were there and told us that Suicide Cliff is literally just below. A word of caution: be careful when climbing down and making your way to the actual cliff – it’s all too easy to slip and seriously hurt yourself.

    Congratulations – you made it! We were lucky that no one else was there, so we were able to spend time taking photos and enjoying the stunning scenery around us. I’ve done a lot of hikes in Hong Kong, but these views from the Suicide Cliff hike were definitely some of the best I’ve seen.

    Ending Point of Suicide Cliff Hike Hong Kong

    After you’re done at Suicide Cliff, head back up the way you came – past the transmission tower and into the grassy path for a few minutes before you reach a fork. Turning left will take you back the way you came, so be sure to continue heading down (veering a bit to the right) the path. This will eventually take you to Fei Ngo Shan Road. Keep walking down the road until you get to the main road. Cross the main road and you can either hop in a taxi or take a minibus to Choi Hung MTR Station (the minibus stop will just be to your left).

    Journey Length: about 10km
    Total Time: 4.5 – 5.5 hours
