奢华尽显点滴间 It's the lIttle touches...

Fly business class with China Eastern and you get more than you bargained for including designer amenity kits, 180-degree seats and delicious Chinese cuisine First decision of the flight: Western or Chinese style dinner? On the Western side, for mains, you could have seared loin of lamb with red wine jus and creamy polenta. In the Chinese corner, a main of roast pork belly with oyster sauce might appeal. Either way, you're going to be on to a winner. The food is first-class on a Chinese Eastern business flight. But it's not just about the food. You can sleep off your dinner in a 21inch wide, 180-degree reclining seat complete with massage cushions. Your eye mask will have come from the Salvatore Ferragamo amenity kit. A classy touch, the famed fashion designer brings you a bag of little goodies to make you comfortable. Should sleep be the furthest thing from your mind, the entertainment – in both English and Chinese – will easily help you while away the hours.

And yet there’s always something new to discover – it just has so many stories to tell. In this issue of Higher View, Thomas O’Malley attempts to enlighten you even further about this truly great wonder of the world (pages 90-96), with the brilliant Ewen Bell providing the pictures. Also on our hitlist this month is Hunan province, a beautiful and timeless part of our country that is far too often overlooked by visitors from other parts of the world (pages 52-60). As well as bringing you all the latest goings on, openings and must-see events from both China and Australia, we then pay a visit to a city that brings together the best of both: Melbourne. As those of you who have been there for New Year know, this is a home away from home for many Chinese people. Find out why on pages 98-108. Enjoy.

s there anything on this planet quite as majestic, breathtaking and full of history as the Great Wall of China? Stretching far into the distance through mountains and valleys, it’s the pride of our country in so many ways. You could visit it countless times, whatever the weather, and never tire of those views, especially when they’re as stunning as those captured by Ewen Bell on pages 90-96. It’s not just incredible places we have in this issue (we visit Hunan province, Tasmania, Flinders Ranges, Melbourne and Noosa) – we also meet incredible people, such as Chinese billionaire Zhang Xin, to discover her story (pages 154-160); Australia’s world-beating golfer Adam Scott (pages 140-146); and the CEO of luxury watch company A. Lange & Sohne (pages 148-152), who tells us the tale of how a company selling milliondollar watches was reborn after the fall of the Berlin Wall. Discover more inside. Happy reading.

Forget the deep-fried patatas bravas and croquetas. At Samfaina the focus is on the textures drawn from single ingredients.

The Eight

Mr. Wong

按照传统,八乐居早上是饮茶 的地方,但到了晚上,烤鸭薄 饼和点心换成招牌菜如烤牛肉 配鹅肝糊。

室内以历久不衰的风格布置包 括木地板、法式竹框编织椅子 和在慢慢转动的吊扇。餐馆充 满了受中国风影响的现代风格。 广式菜单提供超过60个菜式以 及无与伦比的点心供选择。

Keeping with tradition, by day Market City's The Eight is yum cha central with every classic dumpling you could wish for and their own modern interpretations of others. However, come nighttime, the duck pancakes and dim sum are swapped with signature dishes like wok-seared beef with foie gras paste. The Eight is from the same stable that brought us the award-winning Zilver. Level 3, Market City,

Layered with timeless colonial furnishings including timber floors, bambooframed French woven chairs and slow-turning ceiling fans, Mr. Wong pays homage to classic Chinese influences in a contemporary style. The Cantonese-style menu features over 60 dishes and an unrivalled dim sum selection. 3 Bridge Lane,

Noosa While Queensland’s coastline has an abundance of seaside towns dotting its shores, none quite match the natural beauty and endless luxury of Noosa 虽然昆士兰州的海岸线有许多的海边小镇点缀其海岸,但也不 能媲美鲁沙(Noosa)美丽的自然风光和不尽的奢华。 Words Constantina Pilatos Photography Trent van der Jagt

Day One 第一天

dolphins swimming up and down the coast of the Coral Sea.

7am Noosa is no stranger to warm, sunny days, so before it gets too steamy take advantage of the cooler mornings by exploring the National Park. A short 10-minute walk from Hastings Street (the town centre) will find you at the foothills of 4,000 hectares of Australia’s natural wildlife. From dense rainforest to bushland and hidden beaches, here you can spend hours getting lost. Keep an eye out for koalas and birds nesting in the trees, and whales, sea turtles and

早上7时 温暖、阳光明媚的日子在鲁沙并不陌生,所 以适宜趁着还没有太热的早上到访国家公园。 从市中心哈斯汀街(Hastings Street)只需 步行10分钟,您就会发现自己身处在澳大利 亚4000公顷的自然野生动植物山脚处。从茂 密的热带雨林到丛林和隐蔽的海滩,足以让 您在这里迷路几个小时。值得留意的是树上 的无尾熊和在上面筑巢的鸟类。还有沿着珊 瑚海海岸的鲸鱼、海龟和海豚。

9am After working up an appetite, head

down to the low-rise and leafy coastal town that is Noosa to find an array of seaside restaurants and boutique stores. Berardo’s Bistro on Hastings is best for a long, lazy breakfast. Overlooking Main Beach, bathe in the sun while getting a taste of the best local produce with Berardo’s signature Farmer’s Market Plate – showcasing ‘Noosa Reds’ tomatoes and buffalo mozzarella.

早上9时 开始有些许食欲的时候到绿叶成荫的沿海小 镇鲁沙,会发现一系列的海滨餐厅和精品店。 位于哈斯汀街上的Berardo’s Bistro餐厅最 适合来一个慵懒的长早餐。一边俯瞰主滩、 沐浴在阳光中,一边享用Berardo’s的招牌 早餐农夫市场拼盘(Farmer’s Market Plate),有“鲁沙红”之称的西红柿和水牛 芝士,是品尝当地出产最棒的餐厅之一。

11am While on Hastings, take an hour or two to saunter in and out of the shops. Selling everything from high-end designer wear to local


48 hours brands and hand-made longboards, you’ll have a difficult time walking away empty-handed.

早上11时 既然已经来到哈斯汀街当然少不了花一两个 小时来逛逛商店。这里真是应有尽有,从高 端的设计师品牌到本土品牌和手工制作的滑 板,您将很难空手而回。

1pm From Noosa’s fashion strip to the white sandy shore in a few steps, Hastings conveniently backs onto Main Beach. One of the few beaches along Australia’s coastline that faces north, enjoy all-day sun and gentle waves – perfect conditions for those who want to give surfing a go. You’ll want to soak in every bit of sun, but if it’s cool relief you’re after, try the Surf Life Saving Club. Just off the boardwalk, the laid-back setting means you’re welcomed with sandy feet and beach clothes. Dig into a bucket of fresh prawns and down a cold beer before heading back to the beach for the afternoon.

5pm A day by the water is best finished with a trip to the ice creamery. With sea salt still stuck to your sun-kissed skin, make your way to Noosa’s famous Nitrogenie, conveniently located across from the beach. Using liquid nitrogen and real food ingredients to make the frozen treat, Nitrogenie’s never-before-tasted ice cream flavours – salty caramel popcorn, fig honey, vanilla bean crème brûlée and chocolate caramel cobbler – will have you wanting to return for dessert.

下午5时 来点冰冻的乳制品是结束一整天在水边的日 子最完美的方法。 拖着还充满着海盐的身躯 走到鲁沙有名的冷冻乳制品店Nitrogenie, 位于沙滩对面非常方便。 使用液氮和真正的

食物混合来使之凝固。Nitrogenie提供一些 您从未尝过的冰淇淋口味,包括咸焦糖爆米 花、无花果蜂蜜、香草豆焦糖布丁和巧克力 焦糖果馅饼,将会令您想要再回去品尝甜点。

8pm The place for dinner is Sails. There is rarely an empty seat at this seaside restaurant; hence, reservations are a must as they too can be hard to land. However, the hassle of getting in is quickly forgiven at the first succulent bite of local Moreton Bay bug tails wrapped in pancetta. Housing the largest selection of wine on the Sunshine Coast, take your pick from more than 500 local or international drops to match your meal.

下午8时 吃晚餐的地方是一家名为Sails的餐厅。这家

下午1时 从鲁沙的哈斯汀街时尚区走到拥有白色海沙的 主滩只需几步路,非常方便。这是澳大利亚少 数面向北方的沙滩之一,能享受全日阳光和温 柔的海浪——非常适合冲浪初学者。喜欢阳光 的您可以尽情地享受太阳,倘若想要清凉一点 的地方可以到冲浪救生俱乐部,位于木栈道的 末端,悠闲的环境欢迎还是穿着沙滩服,满脚 还是沙的您光临。下午回到沙滩前先点一份新 鲜的大虾和冰凉的啤酒来降温吧。

邻近海边的餐厅经常座无虚席,所以必需订 位,虽然位子也很难订得到。可是只要一尝 到被意大利培根包着的本地摩顿湾濑尿虾, 一切的艰辛和等待再也不重要。 阳光海岸 (Sunshine Coast)里拥有最广、最全的酒 单,从500款来自国内外的酒中挑出适合的一 款来配上您的菜吧。

Day two 第二天 8am What better way to start your day than with a round of golf? The undulating fairways of the Noosa Springs 18-hole course are set among bushland home to an abundance of wildlife – birds, snakes, koalas, you name it. If you’re a bit rusty, run through your short game at the driving range’s chipping and putting green or practice bunker before hitting the fairways.

早上8时 有什么方式能比一场高尔夫球来开始新的一 天更好呢?鲁沙温泉高尔夫球场(Noosa Springs)18个洞起伏的球道处于丛林,野生 动植物的家园之中——飞鸟、蛇、无尾熊等 等,只要您能想得到的都有。倘若您的球技 有点生疏,可以在开球前到练习场切杆和推 杆,或是练习沙坑击球。

10am Spend the rest of your morning feasting on a hearty buffet breakfast at the resort’s restaurant, Relish, followed by a quick trip to the spa. The HydroMassage pool is sure to relieve any built-up tension from the morning game. Simply glide your

way through the various water-based massage zones that work on certain parts of the body from head to toe.  

早上10时 将您早上其余的时间都花在酒店餐厅内享受 丰富的自助早餐吧,随后便前往水疗所。水 力按摩池必定能让您从早上高尔夫来的所有 肌肉紧张得以放松,您只需要到针对身体不 同部位的水疗按摩区就可以了,它们定能把 您从头到脚照顾周到。

12pm A must-do in Noosa is lunching on the Cruising Restaurant. Slowly sail along the coastline to discover the town’s many secret beaches only accessible

via foot or boat. Nothing will steal your gaze away from the emerald green waters and paper-white sands – that is, until lunch is served. The monstrous Surf ‘n’ Turf will take some effort to finish, so don’t feel guilty if you find yourself back by the railing, taking in the paradise before you.

下午12时 鲁沙的必备项目就是在船上共进午餐。沿着 海岸线缓慢地航行,游览镇上许多只有通过 步行或乘船才能到达的秘密海滩。午餐之前, 您可以尽情地饱览翠绿色的海水和像白纸一 样白的海沙。巨大的“Surf‘n’Turf”午餐 (结合海鲜和肉类的美式主餐)需要花一些时 间和一番力气才能吃完,所以如果您发现自

己已经回到栏杆旁边却还没吃完, 并不需要 因此感到内疚。

3pm Docking at the marina – the home of Noosa Harbour Fish Market – you’re best to pick up some freshly shucked oysters, a perfect companion for the next stop. A couple of doors down you’ll come across Harbour Wine Bar, with a cellar filled with bottles from Australia, New Zealand, France and Spain just waiting for you to pop open.

you’ll be forgiven for mistaking it for just another home. Lit by candles and filled with mismatched tables and chairs, a cool breeze flows gently through the white louvred windows, breaking the heat on a summer’s night. Quirky meal names like ‘Midnight Cowboy’ and ‘You Can Be A Pig Too’ are hard to decipher without help from the waiters, only adding to the eccentric charm. Finish your time in Noosa by casually sipping a cocktail on the dimly lit French-style garden terrace, while mentally planning your return.

下午3时 停靠在码头,也就是鲁沙港鱼市场的所在地, 最好是在这里买一些新鲜的生蚝,为下一站 做好预备。因为走过几道门就是海港酒吧 (Harbour Wine Bar),生蚝配酒真的是绝 配。酒吧提供来自澳大利亚、新西兰、法国 和西班牙的美酒,待等您把它们逐一弹开。

6pm Before overindulging in wine, head for a 20-minute sunset stroll down the marina to Bohemian Bungalow Restaurant & Bar. Housed in a quintessential Queensland bungalow,

下午6时 在您开始放纵饮酒之前,在夕阳下沿着码头漫 步20分钟到一家名为Bohemian Bungalow Restaurant & Bar波西米亚风格的餐厅。坐落 在一座典型的昆士兰式平房,倘若您误以为这 是您的另外一个家也不足为奇。室内点燃着蜡 烛,而且充满互不相配的桌椅,清凉的微风轻 轻地穿过白色百叶窗的窗户,打破了夏天夜晚 的炎热。餐馆里奇特的菜色如“午夜牛郎” 和“你也可以是一只猪”要是没有服务员帮忙 解释是很难懂的。最后在灯光昏暗,法式风格 的花园阳台上一边品尝鸡尾酒,脑海里一边盘 算着回程的事儿。◆

在时髦、现代的装潢摆设里品尝中国的正宗美食。 欢迎来到悉尼China republic餐厅

到中餐馆,安静私密可能不是第一个 出现在脑海的意念。同样的一家拥有 巨大兵马俑守卫的餐厅也让人很难联 想到一个低调却极其精巧的菜单。可是在China Republic却两者兼有。首先有柔和的色调, 以黑色和棕色为装饰、设有巨型华丽的门、墙 上全是陶瓷茶壶、天花板充满东方风情的遮阳 伞、贵宾室设有庞大的皇帝椅、还有紫禁城的 竹制模型(耗时两年打造)。室内装潢极其华 丽精致,是一家富有现代感的中国餐厅。没有 遍地的黄金、红色也寥若晨星,私密的情调让 您甚至想要在这里约会。食物也如出一辙的令 人惊叹,色香味俱全并且拥有精美的摆盘。 行政总厨余梅胜于2010年和2012年位居 中国名厨前50名,他制作出一流的菜单。招牌 菜片皮鸭皮香肉嫩,当您品尝那薄脆的鸭皮、 嫩滑的鸭肉时,别忘了预留空位给菜单上其他 的美食,如抄香蕉虾、宫保鸡丁或糖醋排骨, 饺子有两种选择——猪肉馅和猪肉沾四川麻辣 酱。虽然China Republic花了好些时间才抵达 悉尼,但绝对是值得等待的。 ◆

U

nderstated isn’t the first thing that springs to mind when you think of Chinese restaurants. Likewise, a restaurant guarded by a giant terracotta warrior isn’t likely to have subtlety anywhere near the top of the menu. And yet, at China Republic, they’ve managed to offer up a bit of both. First we have the muted tones, blacks and browns, of the decor. Yes, it houses giant ornate doors, walls full of clay teapots, ceilings filled with oriental parasols, private rooms with gargantuan emperor chairs and bamboo models of the Forbidden Palace (that took two years to build), but the interior has been so well thought out – this is a thoroughly modern take on Chinese restaurant. Gold is limited, red almost non-existent; you’d even take a

date here. The food is equally stunning, – time has certainly been taken with the plating and presentation. Executive chef Mayson Yu was one of the top 50 chefs in China in 2010 and 2012 and his menu is first rate. Peking duck is king, but as good as those slithers of crisp-skinned, fatty duck meat are, find room for some other gems on the menu – like sauteed banana prawns, punchy kung pao chicken with peanuts or sweet and sour pork spare ribs. The dumplings are limited to two kinds – simple pork and pork with spicy Sichuan sauce – but you’ll be glad you saved the belly space. It’s taken some time for China Republic to arrive in Sydney, but it’s been worth the wait. chinarepublicrestaurant.com.au

oss Fargher is a cattle man. Nilpena Station is where he raises between 500 and 1,000 head of cattle, depending on the rains from year to year. His land has more sand than cattle feed, and the cows compete with emus and kangaroos for what pasture grows after the rains come. “It’s pretty dry up here most years, all the rain falls further south a little closer to Adelaide, or maybe in the southern end of Flinders Ranges,” Ross says. “When we do get rain in the winter it usually means lots of wildflowers and the red sand gets covered in grasses. It’s looking good for this year, will be big blooms this September.” Cattle has become a tricky business in recent decades, so with the help of his wife Jane, the Farghers have added a historical hotel to their interests. The Prairie Hotel was originally built from fine South Australian sandstone in 1876, serving the railway traffic heading north from Adelaide. Today the train line carries coal instead of customers, and twice a day the locomotives slowly rumble past the town of Parachilna and the Prairie Hotel. The coal cars total over a kilometre in length, often

斯 · 法 赫(Ross Fargher) 是养牛的。 南澳大利亚尼佩纳车站 (Nilpena Station)就是 他饲养500-1000头牛的 地方,数量随着每年的降 雨量而改变。土地上的沙 子比喂牛的饲料还多,所 以每逢大雨过后,牛与鸸 鹋和袋鼠争相吃着雨后从 牧场上长出来的一切。“ 这里是长年干旱的,雨水 都降在南边靠近阿德莱 德的地区,或是弗林德 斯山脉的最南部。当我 们在冬季有雨水时,也代 表着草里埋藏大量的野花 和红沙。今年的情况很乐 观,预计9月份时将百花 齐放。” 最近几十年牛业成为了 一项艰难的业务。在妻子 简·法赫(Jane Fargher)的协助下,法赫夫妻 俩开始经营一家拥有悠久

hitting the town around sunset and providing a spectacle for patrons in the bar. “Train on!” is the call, and everyone steps outside to watch the train and take in the sunset with a cold beer in hand. The Prairie Hotel is well-known for its culinary treats such as the Feral Mixed Grill, which features emu, kangaroo and camel in a single dish. Ross figures there’s too many of them running about the country anyway, and encourages travellers to reduce their numbers with the words: “Eat some today.” Indeed, in the last decade, the rainfall in Outback regions has been higher than average, helping to fill the salt pans of Lake Eyre with rivers of water and helping the emu population to rise. A family of emus can have up to a dozen adult birds, and they tear through the green pastures, picking out the richest new growth. Driving along trails around the cattle station or the national park demands considerable caution, as a panicked emu devotes its entire brain to running with very little thought to direction. Each bird weighs over 50kg and can do serious damage to a four-wheel drive at speed. Kangaroos and wallabies are even less predictable and far more numerous, making driving after dark a serious challenge for road safety.

fine dining at the prairie hotel

48 Ross sums up his affection for emus from a farmer’s perspective: “I’d rather see them on a dinner plate than on the station. They don’t leave much for the cattle once they get into it.”

RANGE ROVERS The Fargher family has been a local fixture for generations and Ross’s brother, Ian Fargher, runs sheep on his land near Blinman. The woolsheds on Ian’s property date back over 100 years, the original timber floors preserved by the natural lanolin from each successive season of shearing. Ian uses a small single-engine aircraft to keep check on his property, flying overhead at low altitude to monitor water levels on the stock tanks and observe the condition of his pastures. A grass paddock at the back of Angorichina Homestead provides just enough clearance for him to take off and land his Cessna 172. The Fargher stations are on the northern end of the Flinders Ranges, a national park of unique significance for wildlife and flora. The rare yellow-footed rock wallaby is endemic to the ranges, an unusual marsupial that prefers to stay in small colonies instead of roaming the landscape. Most yellow-footed rock wallabies spend their entire lives within a few square miles of terrain. Flinders Ranges is a dry environment with pockets of water trapped by gorges. River Gums grow tall in the narrow river beds, sending down deep root systems that solve their thirst in between the annual rains. These are modest mountains – just 1,200 metres tall at their highest point – but they reveal a deep geological history.

Fault lines have pushed layers of rock to the surface, up and sideways, revealing the strata of sandstone, quartzite and limestone that were laid down millions of years ago. These ranges are so old that they’re eroding faster than the earth can push them up. The jewel of Flinders Ranges National Park is Wilpena Pound, a volcanic crater that captures the best rainfall for hundreds of miles around. Scenic flights around the cliff faces reveal the dramatic geology of Wilpena, or you can hike to the top of the ridges for the best views in the park. It’s a short day’s drive from Adelaide. Dirt tracks wind through the National Park to connect Wilpena to Blinman and Parachilna to the north, with enough scenic stops en route to turn the short drive into a full day on the road. Most of the tracks are manageable with a two-wheel drive car, but are more comfortable in a four-wheel drive and less likely to be shaken apart.  Blinman, Wilpena and Parachilna all offer accommodation and food, but again it’s

Inside the bar you can find prints from local photographer Peter Macdonald, offering a different artistic perspective on the charms of the desert. Fine art meets fine dining at the Prairie with a menu of contemporary flair that features some of Australia’s best ingredients. Even the lamb is sourced from the region, having been grown on salt-bush pastures that give the meat a distinctive character balancing the earthy red wines of South Australia. Quandong pie is the dessert of choice, served with macadamia and caramel ice cream. Jane Fargher reveals the history of the dish: “It’s the best source of Vitamin C in the outback – the Indigenous people knew that of course. Once cooked it takes on the flavours of apple and quince.” It’s not just the quandong pie and sunsets that add colour to Parachilna and the Flinders Ranges – it’s also the galahs. These pinkand-grey birds descend in numbers at dawn and dusk, filling the sky with noisy antics and chatter. A dead tree provides the perfect landing site for the birds, gathering as a group for social discourse. Galahs, cockatoos and corellas are common features in this landscape, grazing birds that rummage through the soil and grass for roots and seeds. They’re more numerous than either kangaroos or emus, but haven’t made it onto the menu at the Prairie. Not yet anyway. u

River life In the heart of the Hunan province, resting on the banks of the Tuo River, lies a slice of the Tang Dynasty, full of history, fortresses and plenty of tea breaks, discovers Trent van der Jagt Photography Trent van der Jagt

he contorted finger of an old man beckons from the shadows of a splintered doorway, his weathered chin motioning towards a glaring phoenix engraved on his door. He whispers: “Tea? Relax? Want to kill some cancer?” How do you say no to that? Inside, the sun spills through the cracked roof tiles and the floor seems to almost sway. But that could just be down to the knowledge that all that stands between the wood beneath your feet and the rushing Tuo River below are the toothpick stilts upon which it is propped. “See the golden dots?” the old man asks, holding a cake of black tea up to the light. “They’ll make you live forever.” Longevity is important to the people of the 1,300-yearold water town of Fenghuang in the Hunan province – not just for individuals, but for the entire city. Having survived the wrecking ball of modern development, Fenghuang and its people, the Miao and Tujia ethnic groups, are holding onto their traditions while rising to meet the future. Inside the old tea seller’s home, the simplicity of the handcrafted furnishings and the owner’s barely concealed delight in topping up our thimblesized teacups speaks for the sentiment of the town. “Chinese visitors come to rekindle their own nostalgic visions of the past,” says our guide Tracey. “While Westerners are looking for a preconceived image of rural China.” After our tea break, it’s time to see what else draws the thousands of visitors to the ancient streets of Fenghuang. Laid out like a true Ming Dynasty fortress, the UNESCO World Heritage-listed city of towers, gates and glowing pink walls rides over the ridges and valleys of the mountainous Nanhua region in the west Hunan province. Worn flagstone-paved alleys weave between intricate ancient residences, while bundled timber stilt houses (like our host’s) line the Tuo River, a tributary of the Yangtze. In China, where many pockets of the past are being traded for another row of carbon-

copy high-rise apartments, Fenghuang has stood the test of time, remaining one of the best-preserved ancient towns in China, and according to writer Rewi Alley, the most beautiful. Thanks to its long history as a trading port, expect to find everything from a medicine cabinet packed with fungus and various animal appendages to caramelised ginger candy and dried pig faces staring you down as you walk Fenghuang. “The river has allowed locals to trade for generations in anything and everything,” says Tracey as she leads us through the alleyways. “Some families have been selling the same tea, medicines and recipes for hundreds of years.” Although the old ways can still be seen in the shuffling footsteps of men carrying sacks of grain and in the women washing clothes by the river, Fenghuang has had

Local tastes Like most of China, exploring the local cuisine in the Hunan province is a must. In every street and every restaurant of Fenghuang you will be able to track down some of the country’s best street food and snacks. Keep an eye out for Fenghuang pickled radish, tofu in pickled vegetable soup, pickled fish in Miao style and Jiangtang, a ginger sugar treat for which the area is famous and which is said to be a reliable protection against the cold in winter.

to adapt in order to survive in a modern world. And that’s where the tourists come in. “For every family business selling local produce, there are two stores competing to sell you tourist junk,” says Tracey, waving her hand towards the many stalls selling photos of the river and flamboyant costumes. Fortunately, a quick sidestep off the main street reveals the other face of Fenghuang, an alley ablaze with azaleas, red lanterns and locals congregating around pots of freshly brewed tea. “Fenghuang must continue to balance the old world with the new, or it will be knocked down,” says Tracey. “If travellers bother to look, the ancient ways can still be discovered here.” Without a single word spoken, a bowl of steaming noodles is waved under our noses by an old woman adorned with a long apron and paper cap, a welcome

Tw i n c i t i e s The Hunan province certainly isn’t short on ancient towns. Just over an hour’s drive from Fenghuang lies its twin city, Qianzhou. Located in Jishou city on the Wanrong River, Qianzhou dates back to the Qin Dynasty (221BC-206BC) and has become an important port connecting the inland townships with the surrounding Miao ethnic groups. While still drawing hundreds of visitors each day, Qianzhou has remained the quieter of the twin cities, focusing more on conservation and keeping the cultural arts of Tujia embroidery, painting and Miao drumming alive.

the water’s edge Heading back to the main street and narrowly escaping another costumed photo ambush, we make our way down to the water. Whether it’s fishing, swimming, cleaning clothes or offering a gondola ride to the crowds of tourists, the Tuo River is the lifeblood of the town. Tea-green in colour with a sheen like polished jade, the river reflects the rippled image of the timber buildings above it. By the water’s edge a group of women wash their family’s clothes, too busy keeping a keen eye on their children jumping in and out of the water to be fazed by the crowds of tourists snaking around them. In the distance the green hills stand as silent sentinels, guard and witness to all that has flowed past. Flowing from the mountains and straight through the city, all the bargains in China can’t compete with the river’s breadth and appeal. Whether you stroll along the riverbank, risk your neck hopping the slippery stepping stones to the opposite side, devote the afternoon to drinking beer in a waterside bar or brave the lengthy lines for a gondola ride, the river is the focus of any visit here. “Buy a group ticket, that’s the trick,” says Tracey, smugly flashing a fistful of tickets to bypass the lengthy gondola line. While exploring the stone laneways by foot puts you in the thick of it, the grandeur of the city and its ancient walls only become clear from the water, despite the stilted houses threatening to topple on you.

change from the fancy dress garments strewn across the main streets. She waves us through a small doorway into her restaurant and as we pile into a tightly packed communal table, Tracey translates the woman’s mumbles. “My dumplings are the best, better than next door. I’ve been here the longest.” Although it’s tough to spot the nuances between all the small dumpling stores, it’s clear this is where the locals like to spend their time sipping tea, slurping noodles and swapping gossip.

“ the people of fenghuang have found a balance that keeps the city and its

culture intact ”

Drifting below the famous Rainbow Bridge (the only path across the river not crafted from mossy stones or makeshift timber), some of the city’s best-preserved architecture reveals itself. The East Gate Tower demands your attention and the city wall stretches far into the mountains. Both built in the Ming dynasty, the bright-orange sandstone and imposing rusted gates transport you back to the city’s rich military past. Dating to the Tang Dynasty (A.D. 660), Fenghuang’s roots lay in its strategic military position. With most of the Miao people settled in the surrounding hills, great walls and stockade village systems were constructed under Tian Zongxian, the governor of the Qianzhou province, to suppress the local ethnic groups. This established the area as the main strategic gateway connecting the Hunan and Guizhou provinces, where it was eventually named as one of the four prefectures of the Hunan province for its defensive strength. With one foot barely back on dry land, Tracey excitedly tugs at our arms, listing all the temples and museums we still need to explore. Most of the current architecture of the city was established during the Ming Dynasty, characterised by large halls and towers decorated

Get your motor running While most streets are foot traffic only, every backstreet and lane is alive with classic motorcycles and scooters

with folk art, calligraphy and wooden carvings. Its long history means every corner of the city holds many untold stories of the past, where only snippets and jumbled folklore have been passed down. Decorative Maoist slogans from the Cultural Revolution, such as ‘Serve the People’, can still be seen on Confucian temples and ancestral halls.

balancing act Whisked between embellished Buddhist temples, local history museums and the burial place of Shen Congwen, a famous modern novelist, we finally step through the meticulously carved threshold of the Hong Bridge, a two-storey enclosed wooden bridge spanning the river. After a full day’s trek through ancient streets, eating your weight in dumplings, noodles and sweets and absorbing over a millennium’s worth of history, settling down with yet another cup of green tea high above Fenghuang is the only way to soak it all in. The open-air tea house situated inside the Hong Bridge gives full views over the entire city as the wooden gondolas glide below you. For all the ardent hustle and impassioned shopping from tourists, the locals have accepted how the city has grown. After some 1,300 years of war, political control and passed-down noodle recipes, its history is still very much alive. A local man atop the Hong Bridge tells us through Tracey’s translation, “I come here each day – so beautiful, so many stories to tell.” This attitude has served them well. Caught between the simple rural life and the cluster of camera-toting city folk, the people of Fenghuang have found a balance that keeps the city and its culture intact. u

When to visit With scorching summers and chilling winters, make sure your visit to Fenghuang falls during Spring and Autumn. With weekends already drawing large crowds, it’s advisable for tourists to also avoid the May festival (May 1 to 7) and the National Holiday (October 1 to 7) as the crowds can become difficult to move through.

asmania is no shrinking violet on the world stage when it comes to award-winning wines. Influenced by the Roaring Forties, the year-round cool climate has engendered a cult-like following for the state’s Pinot Noir, Riesling and sparkling wines. Jutting out into the Derwent River on the outskirts of Hobart, Moorilla is one of the originals, with the first Riesling cuttings planted in the late 1950s. A sort of funky secular temple to the arts, Moorilla and its ‘look at me’ neighbour, David Walsh’s Mona (Museum of Old and New Art), have been credited with adding

much-needed spice to Tasmania’s homely tourism industry. Visitors are flocking to the peninsula, arriving by boat from downtown Hobart, some choosing to spend a night or two in the Mona Pavilions. And why wouldn’t you? Particularly if your taste leans towards modern luxury with an eclectic twist. Think high-tech self-contained pavilions furnished with antiquities and artworks, and named after artists or architects such as Brett, Sidney, Arthur and Charles. A heated infinity pool, gym and sauna should help work off weight gained from imbibing Tasmania’s finest food and wines.

Linking Dunsborough at the northern end with Augusta in the south, vineyards disappear up and over gently rolling hills either side of the asphalt. The odd state forest or sheep farm interrupts the vineyard vista momentarily with road signs pointing to an astounding number of cellar doors darting hither and thither. A member of Luxury Lodges of Australia and akin to a private

country estate thanks to expansive manicured grounds including eight acres of vines, Cape Lodge sits smack in the heart of the Margaret River wine region. Stylish and sophisticated, accommodation ranges from garden rooms with their own courtyard in the main lodge through to a palatial private five-bedroom residence. The lakeside Cape Lodge Restaurant is influenced by the region’s farmers, fishermen and graziers, and is open for breakfast and dinner.

riving towards the cellar door that rises above the vines, it’s abundantly clear this is not your average vineyard. The brainchild of ex-Sydneyto-Hobart yacht racer Giorgio Gjergja, his brief to architects was to ‘build a truly outstanding and uncompromising architectural landmark, the most exciting new winery in Victoria.’ Opening in 2009, winemaking is overseen by two-time Winemaker of the Year finalist Sandro Mosele, whose wines are described as precise, expressive and harmonious, much like the man himself. Sophisticated rammed earth suites at Port Phillip Estate come with couches draped with reindeer pelt throw rugs and leather

headboards bookending kingsize beds. Living areas open onto private terraces overlooking vines and offer views of Bass Strait in the distance. Guided by sustainable agriculture principles that encourage balanced vines, Port Phillip Estate utilises biological farming through natural, hands-on methods. This basically means grapes are nurtured and revered from harvest to consumption. Open for lunch and dinner (check for opening times and days), the dining room menu is influenced by the seasons and is reminiscent of a chic modern chateau with an outdoor terrace that’s perfect for balmy summer evenings.

or a city renowned as the place where the deals are made for the ‘Factory of the World’, Guangzhou doesn’t look half bad – or overly industrial – from the viewpoint on Baiyun Mountain. Cable cars quietly trundle their way over a carpet of deep forest that spreads from the highest peaks, flowing down into the city like green lava. It almost has a serene, Hollywood post-apocalyptic feel where the world is beginning to regenerate and start over. Give it another 10 years and maybe the skyscrapers will be encased in untamed vines, with monkeys and other wild animals their only inhabitants. But from a distance where buildings look like LEGO, things can be deceptive. Take that cable car down to the bottom and you do indeed have a bustling city, but it’s still not the one you expect to find if you’ve heard what they used to say about Guangzhou. If you visited here 10 years ago, then today you’d barely recognise it. Indeed, thanks to sport – of all things – it did get to start its world over again. “Hosting the Asian games in 2010 changed everything,” explains Charles Yeung, manager of the Jianguo Hotel. “Billions were spent in changing the infrastructure: roads, bridges, railways, and basically dressing up the city.” Don’t think that dressing was merely

applying a touch of cover-up – this was drastic plastic surgery. Huge swathes of land were reclaimed from marsh, the skyline became a bit more filled with swish buildings, and a whole new business district was created. They even took care to create green spaces and public plazas. This only added to the likes of IBM, Samsung, Sony and all manner of other Fortune 500 blue chip companies that were already residents; business has never been a problem in China’s third city, especially with the famed Guangdong workforce on its doorstep. “Ten years ago, there were no international brands of hotels here,” continues Yeung, whose five-star hotel is one of the few that are Chinese-owned. “Now we’ve got everyone – Hilton, Marriot, Ritz-Carlton...”

GAME ON 76

Depending on where you read it, anything from about 122.6 to 257 billion yuan was spent on the city of Guangzhou for the Asian Games. To put that into perspective, hosting them probably cost at least five times the amount South Africa spent hosting football’s World Cup. It has to be said, though, they did a pretty good job. Head to the Pearl River New City in the Tianhe District (Guangzhou’s new CBD, once just marshland) and you can see the transformation in all its glory. From a luxury suite in the Ritz-Carlton (still with that new hotel smell) you can see the very best of what’s happened to Guangzhou. To the left, the spaceage Guangzhou Museum looks like it could transform at any moment into a laser-blasting robot. To the right is an opera house designed to resemble two polished pebbles, tying in neatly to the Pearl River’s heritage. In reality its granite, glass and steel frame makes it seem less like a couple of pebbles and more like the kind of thing the museum robot would use to destroy other planets. Either way, the architecture is stunning. Continuing your view across the front of

BC, when a city first stood where Guangzhou is today

the Ritz-Carlton, you’ve then got the opening ceremony stadium of the Asian Games on the small slither of Haixinsha Island – once the garrison for the People’s Liberation Army, intending to resemble a giant ship with huge steel sails that unfold during the ceremony, and a grandstand for a stern. While costing millions to build and design, it’s had no other purpose whatsoever other than hosting that single ceremony. It never held any actual sport, and today it only gets to dust the cobwebs off occasionally for a pop concert. Still, it’s a nice place to wander around. Completing the picture, or rather dominating the picture, is the Canton Tower. Breathtaking is the only word. Literally. Six hundred metres high, it breaks records across the board, including the highest observation deck at 450m. Until the CN Tower topped it, it was even the highest tower in the world. As terrifying as it is to look down through its glass-bottomed observation decks, for the adventurous greater thrills await. Around the outside rim, above the nicely enclosed area where normal people take in the views, bubble trams slowly circle the tower. Not scary enough? How about the Sky Drop? This is where you sit in a row of four seats, a bar keeping you in place while you’re propelled up and down the centre of the tower, taking you on a 485m plunge down and back again. You can even do it in a kind of standing up, tilting way so you can see the ground coming terrifyingly towards you at speed – although why you’d do want to do that for fun is anyone’s guess.

Luckily, much more pleasant things also reside within the tower, be it 4D and 3D cinemas, galleries, restaurants, cafes or shops. Come night-time, the Canton Tower puts on a light show along with the other major buildings along the Pearl River to become the highlight of a cruise. It’s the must-do thing on any itinerary to Guangzhou – along with eating as many dumplings as you can in a city that’s the home of Cantonese cuisine, of course. As good as the dumplings are, though, the arrival of some of the big boys of the hotel world has considerably improved the dining options in Guangzhou, bringing with them high-end Italian and French to offer something beyond the exceptional local favourites. At the Ritz-Carlton’s Italian LIMONI, you could enjoy a dinner of braised veal shanks in tomato, white wine and herb sauce followed by zabaglione before heading to the thoroughly British Churchill bar to lounge in one of its deep-buttoned leather chairs while puffing on a cigar and enjoying a glass of the finest Cognac or a single malt. A bit further back from the river, but still in the Tianhe district, you’ll find another exceptional place to eat: Ebony at the Mandarin Oriental, also so new they probably haven’t even taken all the packaging off parts of it. Here, Swiss chef Marcel Kofler brings together the best of China’s produce with his own European-influenced food. Chinese foie gras is surprisingly good (who knew?), particularly when served with the dry aged snow dragon wagyu. Kofler’s burger, though, is a masterpiece: wagyu beef (cheek, braised for six hours), foie gras, truffle, arugula, Gruyere, pork belly and onions on a grilled sesame brioche – this is pretty much an a la carte menu in a bun. Not all of the hotels are looking west to improve their offerings, however. Back at Jianguo, they pride themselves on doing a Chinese classic, Peking duck, better than anywhere else in town. Not only have they brought in a special duck oven, but they also bring in all of their ducks and the famous hoi sin sauce from Beijing. “It’s a secret recipe, that they don’t like to share,” explains Yeung. “This is 148 years of tradition in a plate.

send our chef to Beijing for a few months to learn how to carve the duck correctly.” The end result is something to behold. Despite using something akin to a cleaver, the chef is deft and quick with his work, crisp flesh blistering and spitting hot duck fat as his razor-sharp blade slices through it. It’s a mouthwatering process leading to a hunger sated only by trying one of the delicate folded pancakes packed with the right ratio of meat, skin, sauce, cucumber and shallots. Dip a slice of skin in sugar, though, and you’re in a whole new food utopia of sugary, fatty, ducky deliciousness. “Not even in Hong Kong can you get duck like this,” explains Yeung. Hong Kong is actually a handy comparison for Yeung’s city. For a long time, the former British colony was seen as almost a segue between China and the western world, but in Guangzhou, once the start of the maritime Silk Road, we now have a true gateway to China. While it may have once disappeared from the travellers’ map, it has now made quite the return.

Sydney to Narooma From Sydney I headed south to the NSW Southern Highlands where I played Mt Broughton, a fine and rolling inland linksstyle course with fairways that wind between long, white danger grass. From there it was to Canberra, and Royal Canberra and Federal GC, and a fine rolling green beast called Gold Creek designed by Lee Trevino. I played Narooma and watched whales breaching from the front bar with the locals. I played the famous “Hogan’s Hole” and had 36 points in the Narooma Open. I fished among seals and fellows who didn’t want to be photographed because they had warrants in other states. One fisherman was a blind man who constructs ‘wishing wells’, which he sells for $20. One fellow tied a giant concrete cinder block to his line and laughed as the blind bloke wound up a “monster of the deep.” Down the coast and into Victoria I saw kangaroos figh in the mist.

few years back, I put my clubs in the back of a station wagon and drove around Australia to play golf. In 120 days I completed a full lap of the continent, clocked 25,000km and played 65 rounds everywhere from Barnbougle Dunes to “The Boabs” in Derby in north-west WA. Now, I could recall every course, town and person I met, but that’d be like Marge Simpson’s sisters and their Mexican odyssey slide night. Instead, we’ll go a little Lonely Planet and write a rough guide to one man’s Big Lap. First thing if you’re considering such an odyssey – and it sounds obvious – is there’s a whole lot of driving. You’ll drive astoundingly long distances. You’ll kill wild road-beasts. You’ll shake as mighty road-trains thunder by like juggernauts from space. You’ll eat everything from hamburgers in desolate roadhouses to oysters fresh off the rock. But mainly, you’ll live large on the biggest golf tour known to humankind. And you’ll play some of the world’s best and most exotic golf.

Gippsland. Cutting inland I headed over the mountains to the mighty Murray and Yarrawonga, 45 holes of golfing goodness. The Murray Course is the pick, all giant red eucalypts, roos and river birds, with sunlight streaming through the massive gums and shadows giving the course contours. And so westwards through Victorian farm country to Bendigo for an Echuca chardonnay and duck pate, then the Novotel’s Forest Resort north of Ballarat. The huge room had a log fireplace, spa bath, two huge plasma TVs, a balcony, a bed the size of Belgium, and a tidy, internet-capable office space with a tee-to-green view of the par 4 first. Golf-journo heaven. The course? Forest-framed greens, cathedral-like passages, slopes and creeks and Aussie bush. It’s dry rather than subtropical but there are shades of Bonville and Brookwater about the undulating fairways and tall eucalypts, while the greens are hard with slope and tiers and nuance.

Melbourne TO ADELAIDE, VIA TASMANIA On the road again and south-east to Melbourne and St. Kilda where I ate cakes on Acland Street, listened to rock music in The Esplanade Hotel (“The Espy”), the icon of Australian pub rock,

and played Huntingdale, scene of 30 straight Australian Masters. I played Greg Norman’s snakey Settlers Run in Mornington. And I played The National – a golfer’s wet dream. The National? It’s three courses – Old, Coast and Moonah – all in the Australian Top 50. I played Moonah, ranked eighth. Fabulous track: gnarly, wind-blown, rugged, beautiful. Rollercoaster fairways bordered by wind-bent, tough, salty seaside flora snake up to huge, fast, undulating, interesting greens with the hardness and look of a green centre-wicket at the MCG. Then I flew to Tasmania. Straight from Launceston it was up to Barnbougle Dunes, its spectacular bunkers, dramatic par 3s, signature white marram grass, wind and theatre, salt licks off Bass Strait, and all the other bits and pieces making it the most memorable course in Australia. New South Wales? Best I’ve played. But Barnbougle Dunes is something else. Google it. Book flights. Play. And so south to Launceston GC, and south again to Royal Hobart for a tournament hosted by Matthew Goggin, and then back up to the middle of Tassie for some hickory-stick golfing in Bothwell, one of the oldest courses in Australia. Back to Melbourne and a drive to Adelaide along the Great Ocean Road. Along the way I ate hamburgers, drank milkshakes and played

Warrnambool’s gnarly wind-bent links. I belted balls at the Apostles and drove through Robe and the Big Lobster of Robe before coming to Royal Adelaide and Glenelg and Grange GC, east and west. Great golf.

That is all. And so to Royal Perth with the friendly captain, a local Member of Parliament, and Keith Ellis, a chap with a golf radio show who interviewed me for the rest of the trip.

The Nullarbor

For 2362km I did 150km/h on the flat, straight, roadkill-strewn stretches, the wagon a red tracer bullet. Sights? Apart from the dead beasts and black stretch of bitumen, there’s nothing on the coast of Western Australia. To the left is several million square kilometres of water, to the right several million square kilometres of desert. And that is all. Well, in the water there are whale sharks, sea lions and dolphins, and giant tankers hauling black stuff to China. There’s the lobster factory tour of Geraldton where I bought a lobster for $20 and washed it down with sauvignon blanc on the beach. There’s Ningaloo Reef, where one can walk into the beach with a snorkel and see coral as good as any on the Great Barrier Reef. And there’s the mighty cranes and ground-gouging equipment that make Port Hedland look like a world run by huge machines. There was no golf, though I did hit balls in the weird Star Wars-like land called ‘The Pinnacles’, and on the beach near the dolphins of Monkey Mia. I even hit balls on the white sands off Ningaloo Reef and saw a reef shark while snorkelling. But mainly I drove. And drove. And drove…

Yes, the Nullarbor. Fair old drive in which I stopped at roadhouses to yarn with mad Poms on bicycles riding thousands of kilometres being eaten by flies. I stopped in Eucla and played its ridiculous golf course in the desert, with its painted trees and black-tar greens. I drank Emu Bitter and ate fish caught that day. And I parked on a cliff and hit golf balls into the Great Australian Bight. Then it was west and south-west to Esperance, a beautiful cold-water land with a golf course populated by furry, fat geese, then onwards to Albany, which has a great golf course and local legends like “Scruffo”, an ex-journo who played nine holes with me using a putter and breaking 50. The man’s a 75-year-old boy. And so to Margaret River and the most fun of the trip, playing Australia vs. Ireland skins with a couple of locals and a cart full of red wine. I liked it here best: wine, golf and beautiful surf beaches, a heady combination. Then it was to Bunbury where I was interviewed on ABC radio, and to Mandurah and the wind-polished gem that is ‘The Cut’. If you’re in Perth, head south and play the Cut.

Perth to Broome

Rare sights Occasionally the outback sky throws up a treat


golf 87

When I reached Broome I stayed for a week, drinking beer and playing golf and lying on the beach, and walking in the heavy rains of the night. Gee it was good. You could enjoy Broome. But you’d eventually go crackers. It’s hot and wet and mist rains from special hoses in the rooves of the pubs. True story.

Broome to Darwin From Broome it was east to Derby where I played “The Boabs” with its honesty box and giant fat-lady trees, and eagles that eat dead beasts on the fairways. And then it was to Fitzroy Crossing and a giant steak, and to the sandscrape greens of Kununurra where prehistoric reptiles lurk in the hazards. And so to Katherine and a helicopter ride through its incredible Gorge. And then another ride out into the bush and a nights’ stay on a giant cattle farm. And then back to Katherine via a swim in billabongs accessible only by air. It’s incredible land. Prehistoric, bubbling, old. Everyone should see it once. Then up to Darwin and a three-week stay because rains washed away the Barkley Highway, the one heading west. There I played Darwin’s golf course with the Pro and his mates, and met a bloke called Roger who runs Darwin Golf Links and could be the inspiration

for Ted Egan’s song “They’ve Got Some Bloody Good Drinkers in the Northern Territory.” Then I flew to Melville Island to meet a wizened old Tiwi called Cyril whose son was the late great Maurice Rioli of Richmond fame, and whose grandson Cyril plays for the Hawks. Cyril Snr was called “the Black Bradman” of Darwin cricket in the 1960s and would make a living killing hundreds of crocodiles in times when a man could be paid 40 shillings per inch for the skins. One night he pulled so many into his boat he had to sleep on top of them. On Cyril’s first trip to Melbourne – to see his son play the 1982 grand final – he was taken to Melbourne’s Sandbelt for his first look at golf. So hooked by the game was Cyril he returned to Melville, took out a whippersnipper and carved himself the golf course that stands today. Great bloke. Back on the mainland and it was south to Humpty Doo for a fun round like local XXXX aficionados. Then it was to the Humpty Doo Tavern for a Sunday session where giant horny beast heads hang from walls and a sign reads “Men Must Wear Pants.”

greens of Tennant Creek GC, where I played with Stan “Motza” Thompson and a mate of his Bill, a wiry-thin plumber in that sun-dried outback way that makes him look like he’s been twisted like a chamois to extract the juice. Motza is a former miner and SP bookie who breeds canaries and is the Northern Territory sand-scrapes champion. The course has a few parched trees, but its layout would be the same as your metropolitan track (but you do have to check the hole for scorpions). And so it was westward to Mount Isa where I played Mount Isa and ate T-bone steaks bigger than a man’s head. And then it rained for two weeks. And I went west through Cloncurry and was holed up in two-pub towns like Julia Creek and McKinley, towns that haven’t even heard of themselves. On the way to Charters Towers I came to a river that looked like The Nile and found a hippy in a Kombi, smoking rolled cigarettes. He’d been there three days. I doubled back through mango country and east inland to Bowen. The rains teemed down. I went up through Townsville and Ayr with the promise of Cairns’ Sea Temple and Port Douglas and paradise. It was not to be. I holed up in Ingham and spent two days waiting, talking with truckies. There was no route north. Everywhere was underwater.

When I finally did the bolt it was south back to Townsville and more rain, then south to Proserpine and its former David Grahamdesigned gem Laguna Quays that’s now a ghost estate with a skeleton staff, its one-time championship golf course overtaken by nature. And so it was south again, with flat tyres in the potholes of the gnarly Bruce Highway. Then the sun came out! I ate steak in a Rockhampton pub with a giant bull-ring out the back, and played Rockhampton GC with a bloke whose band, yhe Solid Citizens, was on Countdown in the 1980s the same night as Meatloaf. The Subaru sluiced through Gympie, Gin Gin and Maryborough, all nearly underwater, and finally took me into the Sunshine Coast where it continued to rain, but not enough to keep me off Coolum and its championship course that Clive Palmer’s put dinosaurs on. It was then to the Gold Coast and its many splendid golf-lands, notably The Pines at Sanctuary Cove, Lakelands and Hope Island. Brilliant golf. As was glorious, beautiful Brookwater near Springfield, and Coffs Harbour’s super-course, the glorious, beautiful Bonville. Google pictures. Book flights. Play. Then it was south to Forster and Tallwoods, south again to the Central Coast and the gnarly, brilliant Magenta Shores and Craig Parry’s Kooindah Waters. And southwards back to Bondi Beach where I stayed at Ravesi’s and played more golf, including a round down at Bonnie Doon. And that, friends, was that. ◆

Do the trip Wheels

Budget

You need a quality vehicle. It might sound romantic to get around in a Kombi but the roads are long and lonely and creature comforts are good. GPS is not negotiable.

You’ll have to pay for: three meals a day, water, accommodation, petrol (that’s more expensive the further you are from metropolitan capitals); green fees, beer, batteries and sundry stuff. Looking at $700 to $1,000 a week, thereabouts.

Plan it Ring or email every golf club you’d like to play. Grab a sheet of butcher’s paper and draw a rough map of Australia. And as clubs get back to you with tee times, write them on your map. Excel would also help.

Take your time I did the lap in four months without rushing. It felt about right.


Wonder Wall When it comes to visiting the Great Wall of China, a little context goes a long way, writes Tom O’Malley Photography Ewen Bell

Along the watchtower the great wall is over 20,000km in length


g r e at w a l l 91

“B

aodou, baodou,” calls the train attendant, moving through the carriage with a single bag of microwave popcorn on a silver tray. There are no takers. Outside the window, the Beijing outskirts roll by, a hinterland of highways, light industry and the mournful skeletons of half-built apartments framed against a grey winter sky. I’m riding the ‘S’ train that connects downtown Beijing to the county of Yanqing in the far reaches of the municipality. This suburban route is notable for two things: it follows the old Imperial Peking to Zhangjiakou railway, the first railway designed and built by the Chinese towards

the end of the Qing Dynasty. And it has a rather special stop along its route: Badaling. About 60km northwest of Beijing, Badaling is a pass through a high gorge in the Jundu Mountains. Historically a strategic portal between the fertile lands of the capital and the more arid plains beyond, it has been called the ‘Key to Northern China’ and is the site for what has become the defining section of the Great Wall. As the train ascends into the foothills, we get a glimpse of battlements perched precariously on rocky cliffs. There have been numerous eras of Great Wall building throughout China’s history, but most of the wall that endures around Beijing, like the Badaling section, dates to the Ming Dynasty (1368–1644).


g r e at w a l l 92

The Ming built or rebuilt atop older stretches of wall to form an undulating, overlapping defensive barrier stretching from ocean to desert, shielding the northern reaches of their vast territory from the ‘barbarians’ – the Mongols, Manchu and other pastoral people. The absolute length, including every branch and tributary, of the Ming Great Wall has been put at about 8,000km; a five-year archaeological survey of every single bit of wall within today’s expanded PRC borders, existing or long vanished, from around 20 dynasties (aside from the most recent Qing), put the total at over 20,000km. The reality is that vast tracts of wall have been lost to the ravages of time and civilisation, and what remains exist are in a state of precarious disrepair. For logistical reasons, the Great Wall was fashioned, chameleon-like, from whatever materials were at hand. Along China’s arid northern plains, this equated mostly to tamped earth. The strategically critical upland sections around Beijing, amounting to around 600km of the Ming Great Wall, were far sturdier, built from local granite and bricks, lined with watchtowers and often following the high ridgelines of mountains. But despite the Ming’s mastery of wall defence, the Manchu found a way through

(walls are only as reliable as their gatekeepers, after all), conquered Beijing and established the Great Qing, China’s last imperial dynasty. Although the Qing had some use for the Ming walls and added a few of their own, the greatest era of wall building in the history of mankind had come to an end, and the battlements were eventually abandoned, their unmanned bricks and stone remaining at the mercy of scavengers.

Wall-mart Badaling too had fallen into ruin, but enough of the wall remained intact that, with the formation of the People’s Republic of China in the 1950s, it was decided the Great Wall at Badaling should be the site of the first major wall restoration since the Ming Dynasty. In the mid-’50s, and again in 1987, two restoration projects resurrected around 8km of wall and more than 20 watchtowers. Hundreds of foreign heads of state including Nixon, Thatcher, Gorbachev and Obama have smiled for the cameras on its battlements, and hundreds of millions of tourists, both Chinese and foreign, have huffed and puffed up its steep steps. The train attendant makes another pass as we near our destination, but this time she’s selling tickets to something ominously called the Circle Vision Great Wall Theatre. Yes,

Badaling offers far more than mere wall. The size of a modest North American ski resort, it has a Starbucks, a KFC, and countless souvenir shops and snack vendors. There are banks, the Badaling Hotel, a museum, the aforementioned theatre attraction, acres of car parks, a cable car, camels to ride and Asian black bears to feed. Factor in the crowds (Badaling is famously swamped in holiday season) and the modern appearance of its restoration, and you approach what was described in a New York Times article from 1985 as “too great an obtrusion of the present into the precincts of the past.” This is why the Western guidebooks tend to suggest visitors skip Badaling, a victim of its own fame, and instead seek another officially sanctioned section of restored Great Wall: Mutianyu. Rebuilt in the early Ming Dynasty, and restored and opened in the 1980s to ease the pressure on Badaling, Mutianyu is a lofty 4km stretch of wall in a verdant mountain landscape. Though it too boasts cable cars and gift shops, the crowds have never quite reached Badaling levels, the surrounding villages are bucolic, and in low season you might have Mutianyu mostly to yourself. Not so in Badaling. It’s a cold December afternoon but the crenellated battlements jostle with sightseers. I introduce myself to Xiao

Lan from subtropical Guangdong, visiting the Great Wall for the first time with his shivering wife and young son. Marcus and Hilda, from Norway, are munching on processed sausages and sporting souvenir woolly hats. I chat with Samir, an IT Consultant from Hyderabad, and we are joined by two female students from Nanning in Guangxi Province, posing for photos together. This concentration of visitors exacts a toll, of course. The Great Wall may be many thousands of kilometres long, but tourists can only officially access a tiny fraction – probably less than 50km – of the whole structure. Barely a brick at Badaling is free of etched graffiti. As well as Badaling and Mutianyu, you can travel further afield from Beijing to restored sections at Jinshanling, Simatai and Huanghuacheng. You can view the Great Wall as it plunges into the ocean at ‘Old Dragon’s Head’ in Shanhaiguan. And if you’re a completionist, you might travel all the way west to Jiayuguan, a lonely fortified outpost in the deserts of Gansu province, the end of the Ming Great Wall and the final barrier between Chinese civilisation and the ‘outer darkness.’

out the ‘Wild Wall’, a phrase coined by British Great Wall scholar William Lindesay to describe derelict battlements overgrown with vegetation or eroded amidst desert – places like Dunhuang and Datong, tourist-free and a world away from the elbow-to-elbow jollity of Badaling. This is the Great Wall of the poetic imagination; its romantic vistas of crumbling stone a moving testament to the rise and fall

of empires and the perpetual ebb and flow of power. The flipside is that these sections can be dangerous; hiking boots extol further damage to the fragile structures, and to walk here at all is, strictly speaking, illegal. Still, if you’ve already seen the likes of Badaling and Mutianyu – or if their crowds simply don’t appeal – then this is the Wall for you. Just don’t expect popcorn. ◆

Two-and-a-half hours from Beijing by highspeed train, this is one of the first mountains climbed by the Great Wall in the east, just a few kilometres from the ocean. Keep going up past the restored section to the mountain’s summit for stunning views. On a clear day you can follow the old line of Wall through the town of Shanhaiguan out to where it meets the ocean.

A scenic mountain valley girdled on three sides by what is arguably the most picturesque, gravitydefying stretch of Great Wall in China. Clamber up through woodland to Zhengbeilou, a watchtower beloved by amateur photographers. From here it’s a twohour hike downhill along unrestored wall to Mutianyu.

Probably the best balance of accessibility, spectacular vistas and visitor numbers if coming from Beijing, the Jinshanling section is only partially restored. From here it’s possible to hike east towards the astonishingly steep Simatai section. (Note: Simatai has recently undergone restoration and may remain partly closed until later in 2014.)

Han Dynasty Great Wall at Dunhuang

Earthwork Great Wall at Datong

Over 1,000 years older than the Ming walls, this is one of the most remote and ancient sections of Great Wall, built to provide cover for the Silk Road caravans. Little remains but humps of clay packed with birch twigs and a few lonely beacon towers. It feels like the end of the Earth – flat, gravelly desert in every direction, hazy sun and epic silence.

Just a 30-minute taxi ride from the northern city of Datong, the eroded remains of a broad earthen mound stretch into the far distance across grassy plains. Entirely unprotected, it’s little more than a landscape quirk today, occasionally cut through to give access to farm vehicles.

30 to 80 per cent of those mining were Chinese,” says Melbourne’s Chinese Museum curator Dr Sophie Couchman. Victorian country towns Bendigo and Ballarat were hotspots for gold. As the Chinese men worked the fields their families resided in what was once considered the outskirts of Melbourne – Little Bourke Street. “When the Chinese first settled, Little Bourke was a cheap place to live,” says Dr Couchman. “It quickly became a hub where the Chinese could all gather and live as they did back home – cooking regional cuisines and speaking their language.” Little did the Chinese know they were forming the foundations for what is now the world’s longest continuously occupied Chinatown. Today, some 63,000 Chinese people reside in Melbourne, and Chinatown is very much at the forefront of the CBD.

Hot stuff Over the years the Chinese community has left its mark on all parts of Melbourne – bookstores stock Chinese literature and Asian-inspired graffiti can be spotted in alleyways, and you can even catch live theatrical and musical performances at the Chinatown Cinema, one of the last Chinese cinemas outside of Asia. But its biggest influence lies in the city’s well-

s you walk through the ornate red archways that mark the beginning of Melbourne’s Chinatown, you’re transported to the clattering and chattering streets of China: a world of hanging lanterns, street music, busy teahouses, dumplings, dumplings and more dumplings. Lining the footpath are a seemingly endless amount of restaurants and stores, selling everything you’d only expect to find on the streets of Beijing. Rare herbs, such as wild ginseng, dan gui and wolfberry sit in glass jars filling store shelves alongside dried persimmon and peeled sour tamarind, all imported from the Orient. The authenticity of Melbourne’s Chinatown lies in its origins. It is here, along the stretch of Little Bourke Street and spilling onto the laneways running off it, that the Chinese community set up camp one-and-a-half centuries ago – and have remained ever since. Chinese immigrants started arriving on Australian shores in 1851, with a suitcase in one hand and tools in the other. Australia’s Gold Rush lured international settlers from every corner of the world, yet China’s relative closeness meant its people were more willing to make the lucrative yet gruelling two-month journey by sea. “On some goldfields,

established culinary landscape. Melbourne is becoming increasingly known for its delectable dumplings. Growing in popularity over the last decade, humble dumpling houses have become the hardest restaurants to score a seat at, with queues of Chinese and Westerners alike pouring through their doors. While dumplings of all shapes and sizes are loved, none have caused quite the mass hysteria of the xiao long bao dumpling. Originating in Shanghai, these delicately handcrafted dough balls bursting with hot soup filling have become a Melbourne staple. They may be found on the menu pages of most Chinese restaurants, yet very few can match the genuineness of the xiao long bao at Hutong Dumpling Bar. Found in a small laneway off Little Bourke Street (hutong means laneway in Chinese), this is a bona fide Melbourne treasure. Upon

entering the rustic three-storey building, one of Hutong’s smiling staff – possibly even manager Patrick Lui, who is on hand six days a week – happily greets you before navigating you up the winding staircases in search of an empty table, a rarity on the quietest of days. “Shall we start with the xiao long bao?” they suggest before you even manage to sit, knowing full well the reason for your visit. A few minutes later, the dumplings are set on the table with a billowing cloud of steam still evaporating over them. As they cool down, you receive a quick tutorial on how to eat xiao long bao which, if you want to avoid the embarrassment of having soup run down your chin, is worth listening to: “First, a bite in the corner to let the steam out. Second, you slurp out the soup. Third, you eat the rest of the pork-filled dumpling. Make sure to dip it into the ginger and vinegar sauce, as well as the chilli in between. You must have chilli.” For Chinese restaurants in Melbourne, chilli is the fingerprint. With new establishments constantly popping up and flooding the streets, it’s the finer details that make one stand out from another. Shanghai Street Dumpling, one of the city’s first dumpling franchises, counters the hotness of its chilli with caramelised shallots. Dolan Uyghur Food Heaven, a western Chinese restaurant, adds a bit of flavour to its spice by stirring through garlic.

A newcomer to the dumpling scene, ShanDong MaMa sticks to the classic chilli flake, peppercorn and oil trifecta. Hidden in the narrow halls of Bourke Street’s Mid City Arcade, this hole-in-the-wall dumpling house has been creating a buzz with its mackerel dumpling. The mother and daughter duo behind ShanDong MaMa have their hands full. Despite wanting to run a restaurant her whole life, Meiyan Wanga (aka MaMa) dutifully served the Chinese government as an accountant until the ripe age of 60, when she retired and moved to Melbourne to join her daughter, Ying. Today, MaMa is fulfilling her dream as she mans the kitchen, hand-making around 2,500 dumplings a day while Ying works the floor. With a no-reservation policy, waiting in line is a given, but Melbourne’s freshest fish dumplings are worth it. MaMa’s secret lies in her grandmother’s traditional recipe, which originated in a small town in the Chengdu province, a place where seafood is more common than meat. But these two aren’t resting on the dumpling formulas of their forebears; they are creating new flavours of their own. “The little Rachel dumpling is my favourite, and not just because it’s named after my daughter,” says Ying. Filled with all things good – prawn, calamari and salmon – the recipe came to MaMa while she was rocking her newborn grandchild to sleep. “I think MaMa just wanted everyone else to feel the joy little Rachel brought to her and the only way she knew how to do that was through her dumplings.”

As the food and drink scene has seamlessly blended into Melbourne’s culture, so has China’s most celebrated event: Chinese New Year. Come the second new moon of the Chinese winter solstice, which usually falls in January, Little Bourke Street is unrecognisable. The culinary delights of Chinatown’s restaurants are brought to the street as food stalls fill the laneways and shopfronts join together for New Year celebrations, red lanterns hanging from every possible place. The sounds of opera fill the street while visitors experience the kind of entertainment for which the Chinese are renowned – think lion dances, karaoke and, on a more sedate note, chess contests! It’s not just the Chinese who get involved. This is a night when all Melburnians come to Little Bourke Street, swelling the number of jam-packed revellers to some 100,000. All of them will be trying to get a lucky touch of the 92-metre Millennium Dragon – the largest in the world – as it dances and weaves its way through the stalls and restaurants, bringing with it good fortune. As the locals watch the dragon, enjoying their cha siu bao or xiao long bao, they must surely reflect that the gold rush of the 1850s brought more than just good fortune to its early prospectors – it also brought to Melbourne a culture that still thrives today. ◆

beautiful golden arc of sand that is Muirs Beach, on whose fringes the lodge resides. Sights are firmly set on the Hazards, a range of mountains that pretty much every room in this glass-fronted house – from the restaurant to the lounge, gym and even your own villa – is trained upon. And as you can see for yourself, why wouldn’t it be? It’s the kind of view that takes you by surprise no matter how many times you see it, even when you just look up from a book you’ve been reading. It’s not only the leather armchairs or fine list of single malts, Armagnacs and Cognacs (all to be taken in front of a fire while star-gazing at night) that gives it a Don Draper-like feel. If anyone wants to impress a client (or relative, friend, etc.), then this would be the place to go. They’ve thought of everything here – for example, when you take a stroll to the beach and find a little stream barring your path, you also find a box of gumboots to save your shoes. It has the spa, it has the service and it has the first-class food (so much food, but you can’t and shouldn’t say no, it’d be rude, it’s all too good). It’s got the views, too, and oodles of ‘nice little touches’; in fact, it’s ticked every five-star box. And then some. But what completes this perfect package, are the activities. You can catch flathead from the beach, take bike rides in the national park, take a Champagne boat cruise around the peninsula, hike mountains, visit the famed Wineglass Bay and take a birdwatching kayak tour of Moulting Lagoon. Or you can do something that literally gives you a taste of what Saffire is all about...

To shell and back Our guide from Saffire, Jerri, takes us first to the Freycinet Marine Farm shop. The handscribbled menu offers up abalone pan-fried with lemon butter and a bread roll for $25 or pickled octopus for $7. Maybe you fancy some scallops for $11 per 250 grams. Or – and this is what gets most visitors going – a dozen oysters Kilpatrick for $20. Oysters, grilled bacon and Worcestershire sauce – it’s like a holy trinity of ingredients in one mouthful.

的每一间房间,包括餐厅 到休息室、健身房和您的 别墅都可以欣赏到这个群 山之景。无论您观赏多少 次还仍然惊喜不断,甚至 当您在看书时偶尔抬一下 头,还是会惊叹连连。 不仅是皮革扶手椅或 是单一麦芽威士忌、还有 法国的干邑白兰地和雅马 邑白兰地(这些都在晚 上观星时被拿到火堆前) 使这个地方有唐·德雷珀 (Don Draper)/《广 告狂人》(美国电视剧) 的感觉。如果有人想留下 深刻的印象给客户(或亲 戚、朋友等),这正是您 需要的地方。他们已经预 先为您想好一切,甚至您 未曾想过的东西也为您想 好。譬如当您漫步到海边 的路途上有一条小河流使 您止住了脚步,您会发现 旁边已为您预备好长筒胶 靴,以便走过小溪。 这里有水疗中心,有 卓越的服务,有一流的美 食(太多太棒的食物,使 您无法抗拒,它们都实在 是太美味了),有风景, 也有许多“细微且美好的 东西”⋯⋯其实这里已经 把五星级住宿的每个项目 都打勾了。还提供比这一 切更多的事物。 各种活动使这里变成 完美。您可以到海边捕捉 扁头鱼、在国家公园内骑 自行车、乘坐香槟游船 环绕半岛、爬山、参观著 名的酒杯湾(Wineglass Bay)、在摩尔廷泻湖 (Moulting Lagoon)乘 坐皮艇观鸟,又或是做一 些能真正让您感受到萨菲 尔是什么样的事情。

水中生蚝 导游Jerri首先带领我 们到菲辛那海洋农场 店(Freycinet Marine Farm)。菜单上是一手 潦草的字,提供价值澳币 25元的“柠檬牛油煎鲍 鱼和面包卷”或是澳币7 元的“腌章鱼”。或许您 会想要来一点扇贝?250 克价值澳币11元。又或者 是最受顾客欢迎的生蚝, 一打的基尔帕特里克生蚝 为澳币20元。生蚝、烤培 根、辣酱油——这三样材 料在口中就像一体般不能 分开。 在比较安静的季节, 许多位于塔斯马尼亚的生 产型企业会有“诚实箱” ,让人联想到澳大利亚大 部分的地区里已过时的东 西。可是这个坐落于国家 南部海岸美丽的岛屿却跟 澳大利亚大部分的地区不 一样。 假设您已经升天去到 美食天堂品尝了基尔帕特 里克(Kilpatrick)的生 蚝,您还是会希望复活, 品尝将要去到的农场里的 一切。 菲辛那海洋农场店的 旁边有一条车道,我们从 那里驶进,导游跟我们指 出所有的坑洞都充满着生 蚝壳。途经塔斯马尼亚恶 魔(袋獾)隔离保护区, 这个品种的动物因为面部 的癌症而受到威胁(我 建议您可以快速地谷歌一 下,不过不要在进食的时 候⋯⋯)。来到路的尽头 我们跨过木桥经过一块充 满猪脸花的湿地,猪脸花 这个名字虽然有点苛刻, 但它们是亮粉红色的花,

Sun and sand Wineglass Bay within the Freycinet National Park is considered one of the top 10 beaches in the world. The reasons why are clear: fine white sand meets clear turquoise waters surrounded by soaring pink granite cliffs. Not only that, but the climate offers a gorgeous 300 days of sunshine, on average, each year.

In the quieter seasons, like many producebased businesses in this part of Tassie, they’ll run an honesty box, something reminiscent of times gone by in most parts of Australia. But then this beautiful island state off the country’s southern coast isn’t like most parts of Australia. Even if you have died and gone to food heaven after trying the oysters Kilpatrick, you’ll want to be revived for what lies ahead at the farm. Next to the shop there’s a lane, and we’re driven down it with our guide pointing out that any potholes are filled with oyster shells. There’s also a Tasmanian Devil quarantine sanctuary en route; the species is under threat due to a facial tumour disease (I’d suggest a quick Google, but not while you’re eating). At the end of the road, we take a wooden bridge across the wetlands that are dotted with the somewhat harshly named Pigface flowers – they’re hot pink in colour and very pretty. We arrive at an old building. It’s filled with bits and pieces of machinery, and there are empty oyster cages piled up everywhere. It’s here we’re handed our green rubber waders. Rarely, if ever, do the finer things in life involve green rubber waders, but we’ll trust Saffire on this one – they haven’t been wrong so far. To a man, the small group of four look anything but glamorous – and at least 20kg heavier. Flattering they are not. Wadered up and ready to go, we’re led out to what for many food lovers is the pièce de résistance of a stay at Saffire: the marine farm. Specifically, we’re here to eat oysters at the source. Jerri is, of course, well-informed on the topic at hand. As we’ve waded out to just above waist height and stand among

the oyster nursery, we’re given the complete rundown of the life of an oyster. Starting out as ‘spat’ – larvae that swim around, attach to a rock and create a shell – it then reaches the nursery stage and then the muscle-building phase, when it’s taken to cages out at sea to effectively bulk up. There’s little we don’t know about oysters by the time Jerri is done. We even learn that some marine farmers keep them as pets, allowing them to grow up to a metre in size and live out their lives to the full; however, as they can live for 70 years, it could be something of a hand-me-down pet.

FEEDING TIME Back to the edible ones. We’re particularly interested in those that come back to these cages close to shore in the estuary, fresh from the bulking-up phase, because it’s these fellas that Jerri is gathering by the handful from the sea. Still waist-deep in water, we head to a long-legged table covered in a pristine white tablecloth. From her backpack Jerri produces champagne flutes and a bottle of a thoroughly delicious local sparkling wine. With the estuary as our dining table, the cormorants, terns and

If you weren’t already in the sea, the flavour would transport you there anyway – so fresh, so salty, so juicy and delicious. You can add a dash of Ponzu sauce if you like, or a squeeze of lime; Jerry is prepared, but these bites of the big blue need no tweaks in the flavour department.

With a multitude of options now available when it comes to rendering a suit more casual, men are experimenting with their individual style No longer restricted to office or dinner party wear, men are coming to value a suit as part and parcel of their lifestyles. For some 400 years, matching coat, trousers and waistcoat have been the foundations of suit wearing, but men are finding this is no longer the case. With luxury brands – such as Hugo Boss – now providing more choice in style and accessories, men are using unusual combinations of colours and patterns. Fashionable add-ons like shoes, belts, ties and bags enable men to vary the impact of their outfit from classically casual to self-assuredly extravagant. The tools at their disposal? Design, material and colour. A blue leather belt and blue sneakers with a slim-cut single-breasted suit? Why not? If the occasion allows, there’s nothing to stop you from expressing your style – in good taste.

Great 风云人物斯科特


Until the Ashes, 2013 wasn’t a great year for sport Down Under, but there was one exception – Adam Scott. Ending the year as No.2 in the world, he has put Aussie golf firmly back on the map, explains Ben Everill

T

he “C’mon Aussie” reverberated around the pines of the Augusta National with the ferocity of a fighter jet. As his 25foot birdie putt found the cup on the 72nd hole, Adam Scott’s primal instinct took over and he pumped both fists, screaming the quintessential Australian saying, seemingly burying every Aussie heartache and hoodoo attached to the Photographs Getty Images hallowed venue – and also bringing his own resurrection full circle. But just as Australians were ready to dance in the streets on the way to work, Argentine Angel Cabrera stuffed his approach to match Scott’s score and sent the battle for the green jacket to a sudden-death playoff. Admit it… you thought the worst. Many went from elation to fear in the blink of an eye. Not again… surely this cannot happen to 吧 澳 洲 ” 数,使这次的绿夹克争夺 an Australian again.

虽然很多人都希望斯 科特能够在加洞占上风, 可是恐惧感和担心还是油 然而生。即使在最狂热的 信徒心中(相信斯科特胜 利),失败的感觉也正在 张牙舞爪⋯⋯除了最重要 的人——他自己,依旧平 静如初 。 斯科特说:“那是一 个巨大的时刻,因为您当 然希望打出那样的推杆, 但身为有丰富赛事经验的 球员,除非它是比赛的最 后一推否则一切还没有结 束。” “我们都看过令人惊奇 的事情发生,有些人最终 的成绩低于标准杆一杆, 这并不是没有可能的。它 给我一个非常难得的机 会,这就是为何当时我会 那么有干劲的原因。 “我不认为当下就想到 我赢了,我只是在想多好 我现在位居前面,剩下就 看别人了。我已经做了我 一切能作的。 “还有我的球童史蒂 夫·威廉姆斯(Steve Williams),他第一件跟 我讲的事是这还没有结束, 这就是为何我有个有经验 的家伙在身边。” 斯科特立即切换回商 务模式。他对周围的祝贺 不为所动,而且双眼也好 像装了钢铁一样。甚至当 卡布雷拉在首个加赛洞起 扑将球击向旗杆洞口,使 整个国家也屏息时,他也 丝毫没有被动摇。他发誓 会好好利用这次机会,当

卡布雷拉在第二个加赛洞 推杆错过了入洞时,这就 是斯科特宝贵的机会。借 着威廉姆斯有助益的解读, 斯科特接着从12英尺推进 一杆,当球慢慢的往洞里 沉时,震撼的欢呼声也随 之响起。他夺下绿夹克。 胜利属于澳大利亚。斯科 特说:“命运让我成为了 第一个澳大利亚人在奥古 斯塔(Augusta)赢得冠 军,简直令人难以置信, 感觉非常的奇妙。” “自从在1987年我目睹 拉里·迈兹(Larry Mize) 跟格雷格·诺曼(Greg Norman)对决时直接将 球切进球洞,这一举破碎 了当时六岁的我的心。妈 妈也哭了,我得留在家里 没有上学。绿夹克曾经有 一段长时间对每个澳大利 亚的孩子意义极其重大。” 可是这一切不是童话 故事,这是努力、完全的 奉献和有着坚定不移的信 念的结果,并且它是一个 崭新的开始,而不是斯科 特故事的结尾。 2010年美国高尔夫大 师锦标赛中他终于承认倘 若要在四大满贯中取得胜 利,需要作更好的准备。 这位优秀的名将已经在世 界各地赢得多场赛事,并 且过着舒适的生活。再加 上拥有随和的性格使他缺 乏了“成为最好”这个单 纯的渴望。后来布拉德· 马隆(Brad Malone)他 的小舅成为他的教练,因 此定制了一个全新的时间

“我的生命里有个很大 的梦想,只是需要一段 时间才能到达那里”

The champion speaks Scott shares his thoughts at the pga grand slam of golf Champions dinner


“Ever since I saw Larry Mize chip in against Greg Norman in 1987 – I was six, it broke my heart, I got to stay home from school, my mum was crying. The green jacket has meant so much to every Aussie kid for such a long time.” But this was not the stuff of fairytales; this was the product of hard work, dedication and an unwavering belief. And it was the beginning of a new chapter, not the end of the Adam Scott story.

“I don’t think I thought right away that I’ve won, I just thought, ‘How good is that? Now I am in front and it’s up to someone else. I’ve done everything I can do.’ “Also my caddie Steve Williams, first thing he said is, this isn’t over, and that’s why I have an experienced guy on the bag.” Scott switched back to business mode immediately. He brushed off the congratulations from those in his vicinity and the steel surged into his eyes. Even when Cabrera’s chip on the first playoff hole was tracking toward the cup and a nation held its breath, Scott didn’t waver. He vowed he would take this opportunity, and when Cabrera missed his putt on the second playoff hole, the moment presented itself. With a helpful read from Williams, Scott sent the ball from 12 feet to golfing greatness and immortality, and convulsed in elation as it began to sink in. The green jacket was his. It was Australia’s. “It’s amazing that it’s my destiny to be the first Aussie to win at Augusta, just incredible,” says Scott.

a long, hard road The journey to Masters champion kicked into gear in 2010 when he finally admitted he needed to be better prepared for Major championships if he was ever going to win one. This golfing caper had already provided multiple wins around the world and a lifestyle of comfort. Coupled with a nice-guy personality, the pure desire to be the best had been lacking. There was an extra gear, and the Queenslander needed to find it. So he switched to a new coach in Brad Malone, his brother-in-law, and instituted a new schedule consisting of less tournaments and more quality practice. It didn’t take long to realise they were onto a winner. The 2011 Masters, where he was runner-up, kickstarted a run of great results in the Majors. In 2011 and 2012 he missed just one cut in eight Majors, and was inside the top 25 in the seven others, inside the top 11 in five of them. When he came to the 2012 British Open, everything finally clicked and a dominant

“ i absolutely played well enough to win and i felt like i won to be honest ” Scott carried a four-shot lead into the final round, a buffer he still had on the 15th tee Sunday. History shows four straight bogeys to finish allowed Els to steal a second Open Championship title and send Scott into the botched finish Hall of Fame with the likes of Jean Van de Velde. Many thought it might be the end for Scott. The scars would surely stay with him and haunt him for all time. But while the golfing world assumed devastation, Scott left with even more belief than before. “I felt like I absolutely played well enough to win and I felt like I won to be honest, it was like a victory,” he says. “I really felt like I controlled that golf tournament from Thursday right through. It was up to me what happened there and that was a nice feeling to play golf like that

表,减少比赛和更多优 质的训练。没有多久就 能知道他们的策略成功 了。2011年的名人赛斯科 特取得第二名,使其的四 大满贯有一个好开始。在 2011年和2012年的8个大 赛中他只有一次错过入 围。7个排名前25名,其 中的5个排名在11名以内。 来到2012年的英国公 开赛中终于取得绝对的主 导。斯科特在进入最后一 轮的时候领先4杆,历史 显示他最后连续吞下4个 柏忌,代表4个洞的标准 杆数都超过标准杆数一 杆,因此让胜利溜走,使 艾尔斯第二次取得公开赛 的冠军。这个恶劣的结束 把斯科特列入范德维德 (Jean van-de-Velde) 的行列。许多人认为这次 已经彻底地击败斯科特, 这道疤痕肯定会跟他在一 起,并一直困扰着他。可 是当高尔夫世界已预计他 会垮掉时,斯科特的信念 却比之前更强了。 他说:“我觉得我绝 对打得够好去赢,说实话 我真的觉得我赢了,这就 像一场胜利。我真心的觉 得从周四开赛到最后,整 场高尔夫球锦标赛也在我 的控制之下。由我来决定 赛事中发生的事,在高尔 夫球最大的舞台上这是一 个很棒的感觉。对我而言 也是第一次经历。” “这给了我信念相信自 己是有足够的实力去赢得 一场大满贯赛,就像是在 我的脑海里最后一块的拼 图。” 他在奥古斯塔证明了 他的信念,而且在苏格 兰也几乎再进一次地证 明,那是一个星期天的下 午,他再一次延赛,就是 为了一睹菲尔·米克尔森 (Phil Mickelson)精彩绝 伦的表现夺下胜利。斯科 特再一次在PGA锦标赛 保证连续二年在四大锦标 赛中成为最棒的高尔夫球 手。在美国PGA巡回赛赢 得的一胜使他完成了辉煌

的一年。其中一场的巡回 锦标赛中不合时宜的肠胃 感冒让他要打败瑞典选手 亨里克·斯滕森(Henrik Stenson)比较艰难,使 他失去了争夺联邦杯的黄 金机会。 斯科特现在已成为 澳大利亚有史以来最厉 害的大满贯得主,这也 是格雷格·诺曼(Greg Norman)曾预言过的。 诺曼在他知名的职业 生涯中赢过两场大满贯 赛,他声称斯科特会比 1950-1960年代的高尔 夫球名将、5个英国公开 赛冠军得主彼得·汤姆森 (Peter Thomson)更上一 层楼。 斯科特并没有因此 而害怕,虽然自80年代 以来,只有尼克·佛度 (Nick Faldo)和泰格·伍 兹(Tiger Woods)赢得六 个或以上的大满贯。斯科 特说:“赢得超过五个大 满贯将是职业中的梦想, 最近已没有太多人能做到 了,是一个很好的目标。” “我总是把目标设得比 较高,那是应该的。如果 能以今年作为动力并且在 奥古斯塔所做的一切中取 得信心,继而在两者之间 取得平衡,希望闸门可以 随之而打开。 “希望这仅仅是个开始。 我没有改变系统去只赢一 场比赛。在我的生命里有 个很大的梦想,只是需要 一段时间才能到达那里。 “看看菲尔·米克尔森 (Phil Mickelson),他一 直是何等的有才华,可是 直到34岁才拿下第一个大 满贯冠军,到现在他已经 赢得五个了。 “今年我有机会赢得两 项大满贯赛事,虽然要赢 得一个大满贯已非常困难, 但是我不认为赢得多个是 件不可能的事, “这将取决于我。我有 多想要它、准备要多努力 和可以保持多久?此刻的 我是百分百地在做,这是 我的时刻了。”◆

at the biggest stage. That was the first time that had happened for me. “It just gave me the belief that I’m good enough to win a Major, it was like the final piece in the puzzle for me to get that through my head.” He would prove it at Augusta and went very close to claiming further redemption in Scotland when he led late Sunday once more, only to see Phil Mickelson produce a stunning performance to surge to victory. Scott contended at the PGA Championship again to ensure, in relation to par, he was the best golfer in the big four tournaments for the second year running. He finished a stellar year with a win in the US PGA Tour playoffs, and while Swede Henrik Stenson would have been tough to beat, an untimely bout of stomach flu during the Tour Championship took away a golden opportunity for another win and a FedEx Cup title.

A piece of history While it didn’t pan out, Scott is now eyeing off becoming Australia’s all-time best Major winner, something Greg Norman has predicted he will achieve. Norman, who won two Majors in a Hall of Fame career, claims Scott will eclipse the five British Opens won by Peter Thomson in the 1950s-60s. And Scott isn’t afraid to set the bar that high, despite the fact only Nick Faldo and Tiger Woods have won six or more Majors since the 1980s. “To win more than five would be a dream career – there aren’t too many guys lately that have been able to do that. It’s a good goal to have,” Scott says. “I should set my goals high like I always have. If can find the balance of using this year as a motivator and take the confidence out of what I was able to do at Augusta, then hopefully the floodgates can open. “I would hope this is just the beginning. I didn’t change my system to just win one. I have had big dreams my whole life and sometimes it just takes a while to get there. Look at a guy like Phil Mickelson. He’s always been incredibly talented but didn’t win a Major until he was 34, and now he’s won five. “I had chances to win two other Majors this year and I don’t think winning multiple Majors is outside the realms of possibility, although it’s very hard to just win one. It will be up to me. How much do I want it, how hard am I prepared to work and how long can I keep that going? At the moment I am 100 per cent committed to doing that. It’s my time now.” ◆

About face watchmaking apprenticeships last three years

n what was once the communist east of Germany, south of the city of Dresden in the land of Saxony you’ll find a town called Glashütte. Depending on whom you ask, anywhere between 2,500 and 7,000 people live there, give or take. Either way, it’s not big. But this town, nestled in a valley on the doorstep of the Erzgebirge mountains, is clever. Once paying its way in the world thanks to the mining industry, Glashütte began to struggle when the reserves started drying up in the 19th century. Other streams of income weren’t exactly plentiful – basket-weaving was said to be a popular choice – but a chap called Ferdinand Adolph Lange believed the answer to the town’s problems could be found in horology. Having trained as a watchmaker for seven years with the famed Johann Gutkaes – starting as a 15-year-old apprentice, ending as 程,所以不管在什么时候, 表,用了大概6年来制作。 his assistant – Lange embarked on a four-year 学校里也会有40到600名 他们有两位技术最精湛的 fact-finding trip around Europe, taking in 学生,年龄在16至18岁之 制表师不断钻研,当时他 France, England and Switzerland. 间。” 们制造了七枚,一枚留给 Fastidiously taking notes as he went, 那些成功毕业的毕业生 自己,六枚给客人。无论 his workbook of findings from across the 会被分派到企业中四个领 您从那个角度来看这个项 continent became the foundation for his own 域的其中一个,每个领域 目,威廉承认:“它虽然 company.

all of the other companies,” explains Wilhelm Schmid, CEO of A. Lange & Sohne. “Unfortunately, Saxony was behind the Iron Curtain. But after reunification – funnily enough, on exactly the same date his great grandfather had founded the company – Walter Lange re-founded the business. Four years later they came up with the first collection, which caused quite a stir back then. It was quite unusual for a company to start with four movements of its own, because it was more common that you purchased your movement elsewhere, individualised it in some way and then claimed it be yours.” As all of East Germany slowly crept out from behind the Iron Curtain, Glashütte’s

“ T he amount of parts starts from about 1 8 0 and ends up with 1 , 0 0 0 for the G rand C omplication ” watchmakers did likewise, going about their meticulous ways and restoring the town’s reputation as being at least on par with its Swiss counterparts. Today, around a dozen watch companies reside in Glashütte, including the likes of Stowa, NOMOS Glashütte, Glashütte Original and MeisterSinger. While production levels remain a closely guarded secret for A. Lange & Sohne (roughly 2,000 a year, apparently), the town’s production for fine watches is thought to be around the 120,000-a-year mark. Once again, A. Lange & Sohne is at the heart of it all. “We have one family that has three generations of watchmakers,” says Wilhelm, “but then the whole area is all about watchmaking, it still has that romance about it here – we even have our own school. We’re in a tiny town in the mountains, so if we don’t train them and give them apprenticeships there will be no watchmakers. We try to get in 20 new students a year, and it’s a three-year

apprenticeship, so at any given time there are between 40 and 60 people at the school, aged between 16 and 18.” Those that make the grade could find themselves in one of four areas of the business, each representing that famed Germanic attention to detail. “The areas are machine, finish (polish), pre-assembly, then final assembly,” explains Wilhelm. “We’re typically German in that we do a double assemble. So we’ll take a watch, assemble it, check the accuracy, and if it works perfectly, we’ll disassemble it again, put on the final decoration then assemble it again.” With every little part of the watch being polished, decorated and pieced together by hand, there is nothing that goes straight from being made to being placed in an A. Lange & Sohne watch. And that’s a lot of parts we’re talking about, too. “The amount [of different parts] starts from about 180 and ends up with 1,000 for the Grand Complication, but that is a watch worth about two million Euros,” says Wilhelm.

Taking seven years to develop, the Grand Complication then takes around six years to produce. With two of their very best watchmakers working on it constantly, in that time they’ll make seven – one for them, six for the customers. Whichever way you look at it, Wilhelm admits, “It’s not a good business case, but it is a good statement for the business.” It’s hard to disagree. Aside from its ridiculously intricate inner workings (it is after all, the company’s most complicated watch), it brings together a grand and small strike, a minute repeater, a perpetual calendar, a chronograph with a rattrapante function, and a flying seconds hand that stops time to within one-fifth of a second. Encased within 18-carat pink gold with gold hands and a blued-steel second hand, it’s quite something. In fact, it’s two million somethings. But for all of the work that goes on inside the Grand Complication, Wilhelm reckons it doesn’t need to show off about it. “I often get asked why we don’t put the watch upside down so that people can see inside of it,” he explains. “But, for us, it’s not important that other people know what’s inside – that’s something for the owner to enjoy.” ◆

Zhang’s parents were educated Chinese Burmese who moved back to China in the Fifties when Chairman Mao’s dream was still very much alive.

The strategy paid off: using grants and scholarships, she secured a place at the University of Sussex. Afterwards, she completed a master’s degree in development economics at Cambridge. Earlier this year, Zhang returned to Sussex as an honorary Doctor of Laws and delivered a speech to graduating students. “It is the place that cultivated me, inspired me and encouraged me to follow my deepest instincts and to become the person that I am today. For this I am truly grateful,” she told them. “If I look back at my life and ask myself what was the most important transformational element, I would say education. The point it all changed was when I decided to go to England to become a student. “When I first got there, I thought there has to be a model answer for these essays we write every week, because that is how the Chinese write. I would submit the essay and my tutor would call us in, and he wasn’t interested at all in whether this answer was right or wrong. Only later, I understood this is a way of cultivating your intellectual curiosity… That is still largely missing in Chinese education.”

他们的足球和网球比赛。 然而,两口子的婚姻 并不是一凡风顺。在2010 年,有人声称潘先生与一 名长江商学院的学员有个7 岁的私生子。对此,张新 已经原谅了他,并于2012 年在微博上发表:“我们 经历过很多风风雨雨,早 年在我们的生意起步时有 许多的闲话、传言说我们 要离婚。但每一次的考验 都让我们的婚姻更稳固, 让我们更珍惜这个家。” 这个夫妻搭档促使了 一个高效得令人震惊的商 务合作关系。他们把北京 发展商的门槛提高了,吸 引世界上一些最爱冒险的 建筑师在首都打造一栋栋 抢眼的建筑物。 在北京美洲俱乐部的 同一条街上,是张女士对 这个城市天际线最新的贡 献——银河Soho。它拥有 起起伏伏的曲线和看起来

More and more Chinese families recognise this and pay handsomely to send their children to study abroad. The big question for China, Zhang says, is whether that kind of education can be replicated back home. There is no shortage of entrepreneurial spirit in China, she says, but much of it derives from the relative infancy of the Chinese economic system.

opportunity knocks Zhang wonders whether, had she been born into a developed economy, she’d have been able to exercise the creativity she desired. In the Nineties, she sensed from a distance that China would offer such opportunities. After her studies in the UK, Zhang headed west for a career in Wall Street – a path that took her to Goldman Sachs and the capitalist beast. The competitive hothousing of talent was ultimately exhausting. “I was ready to leave. Wall Street didn’t give me a chance to participate in China,” she says, the accent of her faultless English swaying between a Sussex university tutorial and a Wall Street cocktail party. Soho came into being when she returned to China. She met her husband, Pan Shiyi, in Beijing and he proposed just a few days later – not uncommon in China. “We are not the sons and daughters of anybody,” says Zhang, strenuously rejecting the idea that the success of Soho is owed to anything more than vision and exceptionally hard work. “Nor do we have powerful friends, and we certainly do not spend any time cultivating those relationships. I know a lot of businesspeople do that. I normally go home at 7pm every evening and have dinner with my family. We don’t socialise much.” Pan, 49, is also a rags-to-riches hero, born in Gansu Province to a family stricken by poverty during the Cultural Revolution. The couple have two sons, and Zhang has told of how she is ‘religious’ about having breakfast and dinner with them every day, and goes to their football and tennis matches. The marriage, though, has not been without its squabbles. In 2010, it was claimed Pan had a seven-year-old love child with a student at the Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business. Zhang was said to have forgiven him and in 2012 posted on Weibo: “We’ve been through all kinds of trials and hardships, from the pressure in the early years of starting our business to the gossip that repeatedly says we are divorcing. But every trial has made our marriage more solid and made us cherish our family even more.”


但我看不出来这些问题如 何是对方的副产品。” 有个论题一直离不开 张女士,就是她的性别如 何跟她的成功挂钩。她撇 去了“中国最成功的女性” 的标签,表明国家本身担 当着关键的角色,就是一 个经济发展的阶段里处于 相对公平的竞争环境。跟 其他国家相比,中国创造 鼓舞人心的商界女性领袖 是领先于世界的。 她说道:“性别里分 两极,一边是在中国的农 村地区,那里的人并不希 望拥有女生。可是同时在 中国里白手起家的女性也 比任何其他国家都多。 “虽然预期男性成功比 女性要高,但若然女生有 机会被培训、发愤图强并 给予一个公平的机会,她 们会做得很好。” 她积极地使用微博的 其中一个原因是:“我觉 得微博比任何其他的途径 更有效。它把社会推向更 开放。在微博上,每个人 的声音都会被听见。” 张女士的影响力并没 有被中国当局忽视。她跻 身中国的“大V”微博用 户,代表拥有巨大的追随 者数量的专属标志。虽然 微博每次发布的字数限制 是140字,张女士所发布 的微博已足够移动金融市 场和引起一天的辩论。 她说:“我不懂撒谎。 诚实是这个社会极需要的 元素。外界常争论我所发 布的东西会否受到批评, 但我的想法是‘管它呢。’ 您自我审查,同时也会找 到自己的个性。” 张新的分享可能是 于中国最有益的。年初 她自掏腰包,迅速地 收购曼哈顿通用汽车大 厦(General Motors Building)大量的股权。 八十年代有一家匿名的日 本企业买下西部具标志性 的物业,惊动了亚洲,造 成了恐慌。今天却换成是 这位打扮整齐、拥有两个 孩子的中国籍母亲。 ◆

The husband-wife team has endured as a frighteningly efficient business partnership. They have raised the bar for all developers in Beijing, enticing some of the world’s most adventurous architects to build eyecatching buildings all over the capital. Just down the road from the Beijing American Club is Zhang’s latest contribution to the city skyline: the undulating, alien-looking domes of Galaxy Soho, a combination of office and retail space with four towers atop a massive mall. As well as its curves, the building’s most striking feature is its colour: pure, provocative white. Designed by the Iraqi-British architect Zaha Hadid, Galaxy Soho is a violent visual challenge to the grey of the Beijing Zhang grew up in. Zhang seems especially at home in the Galaxy. Defiantly nestled between the dreary, blocky Foreign Ministry building and some dun corporate headquarters, few of her creations so clearly symbolise one woman’s desire to change the look of a city. In the early 21st century, the Chinese capital presents an opportunity – a canvas that has made Zhang rich and adventurous. The Galaxy Soho is a spectacular monument to both China’s development and Zhang’s own razor-edged hustle. The walk through the cavernous basement

to the office dome in its south-east corner leads through a shopping mall with barely any occupants. The towers, their units sold to investors with little motive to rent them out, also look empty. She shrugs. Retail is a bit tricky, but the economics of the business in Beijing and Shanghai (the two main cities where Soho operates) are working fine, she says. It happens that today the Beijing skyline has been thwarted by the smog. Looking across town from the imperious windows of her office, it is nearly impossible to make out the other Soho developments that normally stand out so prominently from the sprawl. Zhang bristles at the idea pollution is linked to the sort of urbanisation of which her developments are part. “If we use ‘urbanisation’ in a loose way to say it represents the past 30 years of economic reform and modernity, then, yes, all that development has produced, on the positive side, the cities and the high-rises. On the negative side: pollution, corruption and all kinds of problems. But I don’t see how these are the by-products of each other,” she says.

Straight shooting One discussion in particular is constantly floating around Zhang: her gender and how it relates to her success. She shrugs off the ‘China’s most powerful woman’ tag, suggesting that the country itself – and the relatively level playing field that exists at this stage of its economic development – plays a critical role. China might be gnawed by some imbalances, but it also leads the world in the creation of inspiring female business figures. “Gender has two extremes,” she says. “On one hand you go to rural China, where girls are not favoured. But China is also the place that produces more self-made women than any other country. “There is much more expectation on men to be successful than women. But when you have these girls who are trained to be so driven and are given a fair opportunity, they do really well.” She is quick to point out that in many of China’s villages, girls are typically relied upon to do a lot more than their male counterparts. This, she says, is one of the main reasons she is so devoted to Weibo: “I think this is far more effective than any other way. Weibo is pushing society to be more open. On Weibo, everybody’s voice is being heard.” Indeed, Zhang numbers among China’s ‘Big V’ Weibo users – a designation given to those celebrities or notable figures who have been ‘Verified’ for having a huge number of followers. They are users who possess an undeniable ability to lead public thought. “I don’t know how to lie,” she says. “Honesty is desperately needed in society. I am always debating whether I will be criticised if I post something. But if it matters, I think, ‘To hell with it.’ If you post the sort of cheesy, lovey-dovey, chicken-soup-for-the-soul stuff, then that will typically be forwarded a lot. I never do that. You self-censor, but you also come to find your own personality.” It may well be in China’s best interests to listen to what Zhang has to say. Earlier in 2013 she bought, effectively from her own pocket, a large stake in the General Motors building in Manhattan. It was a big moment for China. In the Eighties, it was faceless Japanese corporations who bought the iconic properties in the West and prompted a shiver of Asia-phobia. Today, it’s an immaculately groomed Chinese mother of two. ◆

悉尼著名的东海酒家老板,谭浩泰跟 我们分享他最喜爱的地方⋯⋯ 上海是我很喜欢的地方⋯⋯ 这是我最喜欢的城市之一,我常到那里公干, 喜欢它当地的风情混合了旧法国和英国殖民 时代的元素。这是一个多姿多彩的城市,总 是 在不断 地 变 化,每 一次 到访 都能 发现 新 事物。

我一直在喝很多咖啡⋯⋯ 我正在推出新的业务 Dough Collective (这是一家烘焙店,售卖各式各样的面包和优 质咖啡),也学会了有关不同种类的咖啡豆, 以及制作它们最好的方式。在悉尼最好的咖 啡非Single Origin莫属,他们甚至有自己的 实验室进行试验!

我无需多讲⋯⋯ 位于悉尼市中心 Establishment 第四层的日 本餐馆Sushi-e的厨师已经知道我想吃的是 什么。对我而言这里拥有悉尼最棒的日本菜。 一级棒的鲷鱼鲜甜无比,非常完美。轻轻烤一 下的扇贝也有着无与伦比的境界。它们的水 准维持得相当好,而且厨师从头到尾一直都 在,所以质量确实是不一样。

my higher life

Henry Tam Owner of the famed East Ocean Restaurant in Sydney, Henry Tam reveals his favourite places ... it's one of my favourite cities. I go there fairly often for business trips and I love the way it mixes the old French and English colonial elements with the local flavours. There's so much colour to the city, and it's always changing. Every time you go back there you discover something new.

I've been drinking a lot of coffee... ... it's for a new business I'm launching called the Dough Collective (it's a bakery selling lots of different breads with great coffee), and I've learnt all about the different types of beans and the best way to make it. Single Origin in Sydney is definitely the best – they've even got their own laboratory for experimenting!

不能抗拒的博物馆⋯⋯ 我 是 博 物 馆 的 爱 好 者 ,海 事 博 物 馆 (Maritime Museum)肯定是我的挚爱。 军舰、潜艇、里面实在有太多好看的,也很适 合孩子们。

伯克街烘焙店⋯⋯ 有著名的 酸面包,而整个萨利山区(Su r r y H i l l s )也 是 美 食 处 处 。意 大 利 冰 淇 淋 店 Messina赫赫有名,原因是它们所做的非常 出色。

轻松休闲的墨尔本⋯⋯ 这里似乎比悉尼轻松得多。人们享受生活, 这里的文化、时尚,一切都非常天然、有机。 墨尔本人不像悉尼人匆忙,似乎拥有较多的 时间去做一切的事情。

Organic food markets... ... have become quite popular in Sydney recently and the one in Eveleigh is probably my favourite. It's in an old carriageworks warehouse and it just has everything you could want there – fruit, veg, eggs, meat, coffee! I've been there a few times now and it's great to explore.

You can't beat a good museum... ... I just love museums. The Maritime Museum is a favourite for sure. The warships, the submarines – there's loads to see there, and good for the kids too.

Bourke Street Bakery...

... and the chef knows what I want to eat at Sushi-e on level four of the Establishment. For me, it's the best Japanese in Sydney. They do the best snapper; it's so fresh, so perfect. The scallops, just seared lightly, are perfect. They're just so consistent and the chef has been there since the beginning, which makes a big different to quality.

... is the home of sourdoughs, but that whole Surry Hills area is good as well. Messina, for gelato, is obviously renowned, and for good reason too – they're exceptional at what they do.

... Guangzhou. I love Cantonese food and in this part of China, so close to the sea, they do the best seafood. And

最 近 在 悉 尼 非 常 受 欢 迎 ,位 于 伊 芙 利 (Eveleigh)的有机市场应该是我最喜欢的。 一个旧车厂仓库内提供一切您想要的,包括 水果、蔬菜、鸡蛋、肉类、和咖啡!我已经去 过几次,那是一个值得探索的地方。

there's always so much choice as well. The restaurants always offer such a wide selection, it's quite incredible. Razor clams are always good!

I don't even say a word...

If you love seafood, go to...

广州,我喜欢广东菜,而且广州的地 理位置 靠 近 海洋,所以出产 最 好的海鲜 并且种类

有机食品市场⋯⋯

Melbourne is so relaxing... ... it just seems to take things a lot easier than Sydney. People enjoy the lifestyle there – it's the culture, the fashion, it's all so organic. They just don't seem to be in as much of a rush as people in Sydney; they seem to have more time to do everything.
