Participating HK Chefs

At the Hong Kong Bar section, visitors get to sample awesome cocktails concocted by talented mixologists from some of the hippest bars in Hong Kong, including CÉ LA VI, Maison Eight, Angel's Share, Bao Bei, Stockton, Fu Lu Shou, Sohofama, The Envoy, NEO Cocktail Club and Seafood Room. Make sure to try the HK-inspired cocktails, such as The Envoy's Haig-a-Horlick, which combines whisky with malted milk, turning a childhood drink into an adult indulgence.  There is also Angel's Share which takes the classic Hong Kong drink Sprite with salted lemon and adds Taiwan's best-selling single malt Scotch whisky to evoke the flavours of caramel, orange peel and ginger candy.

Something to Ponder Upon

Lately, a friend shared a message with me, which I find it meaning and worth pondering upon...  Here, I would love to share with all of you.  May you take a few minutes to read through below and hopefully you gain something...
As we grow older, hence wiser, we slowly realize that wearing a SG$30,000 or a SG300 watch - - they both tell the same time. Whether we carry a SG$30,000 or a SG$300 wallet/handbag - - the amount of money inside is the same.
Whether we drink a bottle of SG$30 or SG$3000 wine - - the hangover is the same.
Whether the house we live in is 300 or 3,000 sq. ft. - - loneliness is the same.

You will realize, your true inner happiness does not come from the material things of this world.
Therefore, I hope you realize, when you have mates, buddies and old friends, brothers and sisters, who you chat with, laugh with, talk with, have sung songs with, talk about north-south-east-west or heaven and earth - - That is true happiness!!
  1.  Don't educate your children to be rich. Educate them to be Happy. So when they grow up they will know the value of things not the price.
  2. Best awarded words: "Eat your food as your medicines. Otherwise you have to eat medicines as your food."
  3. The One who loves you will never leave you because even if there are 100 reasons to give up he or she will find one reason to hold on.
  4. There is a big difference between a human being and being human. Only a few really understand it.
  5. You are loved when you are born. You will be loved when you die. In between, You have to manage!
  6. If you just want to Walk Fast, Walk Alone! But if you want to Walk Far, Walk Together!
  1. Sunlight
  2. Rest
  3. Exercise
  4. Diet
  5. Self Confidence and
  6. Friends

Maintain them in all stages of Life and enjoy a healthy life.
The older we get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.
