e welcome you to Hong Kong and to CityLife, the monthly magazine for visitors to Asia’s World City. In December, Hong Kong turns into a winter wonderland as the city celebrates Christmas with both gusto and reverence. Visitors are awestruck by the dazzling lighting that drapes the city. Whether it’s the giant Christmas Tree in Statue Square, colourful lighting displays on many of the city’s tall buildings around the harbour, or the nightly light shows decorating the sky, Hong Kong shines bright at this time of year. All around the city, shopping malls bid to outdo each other in thematic displays, restaurants offer sumptuous Christmas dinners and there are parties galore. Along with its secular aspects, Christmas remains an important religious holiday for the large Christian community here in Hong Kong. Whatever your beliefs, you’ve come to the perfect place to celebrate this joyful holiday. Please visit our cover story on page 10 as well as the Calendar Section for all the details.  As Asia’s World City, Hong Kong has a unique urban vibe that underlies the city’s pulse and pace, drawing on the city’s diverse geography, dense population, East-meets-West culture and the cosmopolitan mix of people living here. All there for you to share in. Whether it’s Hong Kong’s unique transport mix, its sprawling elevated walkways, its gregarious food culture, or enjoying a quiet side of the city, visitors can experience this vibe just like the locals. Open up to ‘the Hong Kong way’ and we promise that it will add immeasurably to the fun of your visit to Hong Kong, and convince you to come back for more. Please go to page 14 for our list of urban vibes that you should catch. Horse racing is the premier local sporting pastime. Even if you aren’t a hardcore racing fan, attending a race day event in Hong Kong and cheering on the horses along with the crowds is a chance to see into the soul of this town. This month, Hong Kong hosts the Hong Kong International Races, one of the season’s marquee events. Make a dash for it if you are in town; it promises a cavalcade of fun. Whether you are traveling alone or with your family, you may just want to catch the timeless ballet classic The Nutcracker, which is performed during the Christmas holiday season every year by the Hong Kong Ballet. The heartwarming story and Tchaikovsky’s wonderful music are a sure way to lift anyone’s spirit. December is all about festivities and the holiday season, and as such, a lovely month to visit Hong Kong. Whether it’s soaking up the holiday atmosphere, shopping to your heart’s content, indulging in gourmet Christmas dinners, checking out the fabulous Christmas decorations, seeing the local side of life, or taking in a horse race, you’ll love what Hong Kong has to offer during this wonderful holiday period. Enjoy it all, and we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

THE BIRTH OF THE PENINSULA 半島酒店傳奇

1

The peninsula Hotel has entertained the military – and the odd monarch 著名的半島酒店曾經招待過軍隊——還有脾氣古怪的國王。

E

ight-and-a-half years after work had begun on The Peninsula Hotel, it finally opened its doors to guests on 11 December 1928. It had been scheduled to open in 1924, but there had been many delays including the unexpected presence of ground water, and it became necessary to sink 600 piles to prop up the foundations. In 1927, when it was ready for occupation, the hotel was commandeered by the British Army, and the Coldstream Guards and the Devonshire Regiment moved in. There had been riots in Hong Kong the previous year and a civil war was raging in China. These two distinguished British regiments proudly carry the name "Peninsula" as a battle honour on their regimental colours. The honour was awarded to them for their gallantry during the Peninsula War when they helped the Iron Duke smash the armies of Napoleon and not for wrecking the interior of the Peninsula Hotel a century later. Such was the damage they caused that after the army left a complete renovation was needed. The hotel’s chief engineer Clifton Triggs recalled

8

www.hkcitylife.com | DECEMBER 2019

“We had to rebuild it!” It was in the bathrooms where the most of the damage occurred. Every bathtub had to be replaced. “They must have kept their guns in them!” said Triggs. Nine months after the troops left there was a grand opening ceremony. The South China Morning Post wrote: “The furnishings and interior decorations were exceedingly attractive and it seemed that no effort had been spared to provide guests with everything that might be desired. To speak of one instance alone, there are no fewer than five grand pianos in the building.” About the only person who was not enthusiastic about the opulent splendour of the hotel was the Acting Governor Thomas Southorn who performed the opening ceremony. In his speech he remarked: “Opinions may differ as to the architecture and decoration: some may prefer a Spartan simplicity, some the sumptuousness of an eastern palace - but there can be no two opinions as to the arrangements made for the hygienic cleanliness of the hotel and everything connected with it.” Southern, who had pretensions to culture, was probably afraid of what Virginia Woolf, who

半 島酒店從動工建業開始,整整花了八 年半,時間終於在 1928 年 12 月 11 日

正式落成啟用,酒店原定於 1924 年開幕,卻 因種種原因速度延期。包括地基竟意外出現下 水,需要把 600 根椿柱打進地基加固。

1927 年,酒店原已可以啟用,卻被英軍陸 軍徵用。結果進駐酒店的乃是寒流警衛軍團和 德文郡軍團。前一年香港曾發生暴動,而中國 大陸的內戰則正打的熱烈。 這兩個戰績彪炳的英國軍團的徽章上,赫 然可見「半島」二字的戰功標記。但其實是軍 團在半島戰爭期間表現勇猛,鐵血公爵成功擊 潰拿破崙,故被授予戰功。而非紀念軍團在百 年後大鬧半島酒店。 但軍團進駐確實對酒店內部帶來了嚴重破 壞,以至酒店必須徹底重新裝修,酒店的總工 程師 Clifton Triggs 事後回憶道 : 「我們要將之 重建!」損壞最嚴重的地方是浴室,每個浴缸 都要更換。 Triggs 說,他們肯定是帶着槍砲洗 澡的。 軍團離去後九個月,酒店舉行了盛大的開 幕典禮,南華早報寫到:酒店的內部裝潢極為 吸引,看來酒店不遺餘力地想為住客提供一切 最好的設施。茲舉一例,酒店內最少有五台鋼 琴。


was his wife’s sister-in-law, would say if he lavished praise on the old fashioned decor. Fate has a way of punishing intellectual snobs: the unlovely Southorn Playground in Wanchai is named after the Acting Governor.

唯一對酒店華麗裝潢不感興趣者,是主持開幕儀式的署理港督修 頓。在致辭時他說,「就建築和裝修而論,意見未必一致。有些人寧取 斯巴達是簡潔,有些人再喜歡東方宮殿的奢華。但論到酒店,在所有關 乎衛生整潔方面的安排,那倒是沒話說的」。

The hotel’s splendid plumbing was not however to everybody’s taste even though every bedroom had its own bathroom and lavatory. Distinguished guests, such as the last Emperor of Ethiopia, sometimes made strange demands. His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie, the Lion of Judah and Emperor of Ethiopia, was a direct descendent of The Queen of Sheba. He stayed at the Peninsula in the 1950s.

擁有文化修養的修頓未敢過度稱讚酒店的古典裝潢,或是因為怕愛 妻的好姐妹,英國著名作家伍爾夫會對之有微言。但命運有時真會捉弄 文人雅士,位於灣仔毫不起眼的修頓球場,正是以這為署理港督的名字 命名。

When an emperor graces your hotel with his imperial presence, his every whim is your command. Leo Gaddi, the manager of the Peninsula, was anxious to please. When he received an imperial command to replace the Western-style lavatories, he was rather surprised, but willingly obliged. With ruthless efficiency the hotel’s contractors ripped out the British flush toilets and replaced them with the Asian variety. Work was completed just in time for the royal visit. As the Emperor had taken the whole of the sixth floor the logistics were horrendous. Even so, “Operation Prester John”, named after the legendary King of Abyssinia, took only two days. It is reported that the Lion of Judah had a comfortable stay.■

半島酒店的每個房間都設有浴室和衛生間,卻不是所有人都會欣賞 其中的豪華設備,尊貴住客如埃塞俄比亞末代國王便曾就此提出過一 些奇怪的要求。 Selassie 被尊稱為「猶大雄獅」,即使還在俄比亞國 王,也是所羅門跟希巴女王的直系子孫。這位國王陛下曾於 1950 年代 下榻半島酒店。 國王大駕光臨酒店,陛下的聖旨必然是遵從。所以當時半島酒店的 總經理 Leo Gaddi ,絕對可稱得上是畢恭畢敬,唯恐龍顏大怒,當他預 先收到皇室只是說要換掉酒店房間內西式衛生間時, Gaddi 大吃一驚, 卻還是依旨行事。 酒店的工程人員結果以超高效率把英式的沖水坐廁換成亞洲式樣, 國王抵達時,工程剛好完成。國王同時包下了六樓全層,讓酒店職員忙 的不亦樂乎。儘管如此,此次別名「 Prester John 」行動的招待,實際 上只為期兩天。據說「猶大雄獅」在半島酒店還住的挺舒適。■

歷史上的香港十二月 8-25 December 1941: The Battle of Hong Kong was part of the opening salvo of assaults by Imperial Japan that launched the Pacific Theatre of World War II, alongside Pearl Harbour and attacks on Singapore, Guam the Philippines and elsewhere.

香 港的聖誕節與亞洲其他地方不同。龐大的基 督教和無處不在的購物文化意味着——聖誕

hristmas in Hong Kong is unlike anywhere else in Asia. The city’s substantial Christian community and its pervasive shopping culture together mean that Christmas transcends boundaries and ethnic lines and Hongkongers celebrate Christmas with both reverence and gusto.

Leisurely Ding Ding Ride 悠閒的叮叮車

www.hkcitylife.com | DECEMBER 2019

世界上最具活力的城市之一,擁有自己獨特的風 情和脈搏。

Catch a tram – lovingly known as the ding ding – on Hong Kong Island, and watch the bustling cityscape at your ease. Take a tram from Sai Ying Pun or Sheung Wan and go eastward to either North Point or Happy Valley, passing through the heart of the city along the way. It’s relaxing, civilised and fun. 港島區有一種特別的交通方式——叮叮車。坐在叮叮車 上,欣賞繁華的城市景觀,在西營盤或者上環上車前往北 角或跑馬地,一路經過城市中心,緩慢、放鬆且有趣。


Central Elevated Walkway System 中區行人天橋系統 Overhead pedestrian connections are found all over the city; one of the most extensive and interesting to explore is the Central Elevated Walkway System, a labyrinth of footbridges and walkways extending from Sheung Wan’s Macau Ferry Terminal to Star Ferry in Central, to the Midlevels Escalator System and to Landmark in the heart of Central and beyond. There are connections to and through major building landmarks along the way. Take in the thronging crowds and enjoy overhead views of traffic, landscape and the city scenes below.

Mid-levels Escalators System 半山自動扶梯系統 The world’s longest elevator walkway system is a microcosm of our ultra-chic city. Starting in Queen’s Road Central at Central Market, this series of escalators was constructed to carry commuters from Mid-levels to Central in the morning, and back again at day’s end. But organic transformation along the route has spawned new trendy neighbourhoods, chic dining outlets, and great spots for people-watching. So feel free to hop on and off to explore Hollywood Road, Tai Kwun and Soho. 世界上最長的自動扶梯系統,是我們這座超時尚城市的縮 影。由中環街市至皇后大道中,行人可乘搭這一系列自動 扶梯往來半山和中環。沿途已經轉變為時尚街區,遊客到 別緻的餐廳就餐,欣賞城市景觀的好地方,還可以在荷李 活道、大館及蘇豪區自由穿梭。

Street Arts 街頭藝術

高架人行道遍布全城;其中最具 特色和趣味的是中環高架行人路 系統,由上環港澳碼頭至中環天 星小輪、半山自動扶梯系統,以 至中環內外的地標建築,都是錯 綜複雜的行人天橋和行人通道。 沿途連接主要建築地標,在擁擠 的人群中,低頭欣賞川流不息的 交通和城市景觀。

Busking 街頭表演 Hong Kong has a thriving busking culture. Tong Choi Street in Mong Kok was packed with buskers until the street recently reversed its pedestrian-only status; now only a few remain. So your most vibrant busking area is the Central Harbourfront right between the Observation Wheel and the Central Ferry Piers. Dozens of performers – singers, dancers, ‘statues’ and more – gather to show off their talents. You can also count on an impromptu show at the corner of Pedder Street and Queen’s Road Central or the Peking Road pedestrian tunnel in Tsim Sha Tsui. Tip if you enjoy what you see.

The city has a thriving street art culture, helped by the innumerable pavements, building walls and overhead road bridges. The most prominent examples are along Hollywood Road in Central and Sheung Wan its side streets such as Graham Street, Peel Street and Tai Ping Shan Road. Many others abound, so keep your eyes open and you’ll likely be rewarded.

香港的街頭表演文化非常繁榮。旺角的通菜街可不 僅僅是行人的天地,有成群的街頭藝人集中於此表 演,現在也只剩為數不多的幾位了。今天,最具活 力的街頭表演在中環海濱,位於摩天輪和中環渡輪 碼頭之間。許多街頭藝人、歌手或舞蹈演員聚集在 這裡,展示才華。畢打街和皇后大道中或尖沙咀北 京道的行人隧道拐角處同樣有精彩的街頭表演。如 果你喜歡他們的表演,可以給小費。

無數的人行道,建築牆壁和高架道路 橋樑讓這座城市的街頭文化無比繁 榮。其中最著名的是沿中環荷李活道 和上環的小街,如嘉咸街、卑利街和 太平山路。當然其他地方也有很多, 慢慢欣賞

FEATURE STORY 專題故事

Sunday Afternoon Stroll Through Central 星期日下午在中環漫步 On Sundays and public holidays, closed streets and other corners of Central are adopted by the city’s thousands of foreign domestic helpers, radiating the week’s pent-up social energy. Whether it’s friends catching up in a cardboard ‘room’ on a footbridge, an impromptu religious gathering, a dancing or singing contest or practice, an informal wedding, or an organised event in Stature Square, the scenes offer up a fascinating slice of Hong Kong’s urban vibe.

每逢星期日及公眾假期,中環的 許多地方都會變成熱鬧的場所, 供數以千計的外籍傭工在此聚 會。一小部分社會團體在人行天 橋上搭建臨時的紙板棚子裡消磨 時光,還有一部分與街頭小販討 價還價,還有的在皇后像廣場上 跳舞、唱歌或組織活動,每一幀 都構成了香港城市氛圍中迷人的 片段。

Local markets 本地市場

Neon and LED Lights at Night 夜晚的霓虹燈和 LED 燈 At night, the city turns into a gigantic lighting extravaganza. For the kaleidoscopic sight of jumbled neon and LED displays of shops and buildings, head to Nathan Road and make your way from Tsim Sha Tsui to Mongkok. You’ll be more than dazzled. On the way, detour to Temple Street and check out some of the older neon displays still displayed there.

夜晚,整個城市變成燈 光盛宴。從尖沙咀前往 彌敦道,然後前往旺 角,觀賞商店及建築物 外霓虹燈及 LED 燈,五 光十色盡收眼底,讓人 眼花繚亂。在廟街轉個 彎,有很多以前留來帶 有年代感的霓虹燈。

While your stay should certainly take in the classic street markets – like Ladies Market in Mongkok – that are well-known tourist destinations, you may also want to check out a regular local market and see how locals buy their fresh meat and vegetables. These are all over the city, typically in large municipal buildings, so find the one nearest to where you are staying. A visit to the wet market in Sham Shui Po can be followed by a trip to Ap Liu Street electronics and gadget market and the famous computer centre nearby. 來香港一定要去本地市場逛逛,很多都是著名的旅遊景點,如旺角的女人街。如果 你想去一個更傳統的市場,看看當地人是如何購買新鮮肉類和蔬菜的,也有很多可 供選擇,遍布全城。深水埗的街市值得一遊,隨後可前往鴨寮街及其附近著名的電 腦中心。

Respite in an Urban Space 城市中的暫息 Tired of walking around or just fancy a change of pace? The city’s many small urban parks are calling you. One of our favourites is Southorn Playground where – in the heart of Wanchai – you can pass your downtime watching locals engage in a boisterous game of football or basketball.

‘Han Gai’ or Browsing Around

逛街/四處逛逛

厭倦了四處走動還是只想休息一下?城市裡的許 多小公園可以讓你感到舒適。我們最喜歡的是位 於灣仔中心的修頓球場,在那裡可以休息,但也 可以看到當地人的娛樂活動,比如打籃球和踢足 球等。

www.hkcitylife.com | DECEMBER 2019

Arguably the favourite pastime for most Hong Kong residents, the phrase “Han Gai” literally means ‘cruising the streets’. The ideal – that is, busiest – locations are Causeway Bay and Mongkok. Both areas are famed as shopping districts, so you can explore some of the city’s top shopping malls and department stores and maybe sample a local dessert such as egg waffle.

可以說是大多數香港居民最喜 歡的消遣方式。“行街”一詞 的字面意思是在逛街。最繁忙 的購物區是銅鑼灣和旺角。到 銅鑼灣,探索該市最熱門的購 物中心和百貨公司,嘗試一下 當地的甜點,比如雞蛋仔等。

People-watching and Partying at Night 夜間聚會 Hong Kong is a night city: whole areas of town never sleep as bars and clubs stay open till the wee morning hours – or even round the clock. Lan Kwai Fong in Central and the bar district in Wanchai are two famous nightspots. Take a seat at the open front of a busy bar, order your favourite tipple, and watch people go by all night long.

香港是一個夜晚城市,酒吧和俱樂部一直營業到 凌晨,這個城市的一些地方從不休息。中環的蘭 桂坊和灣仔的酒吧區是兩個著名的夜景點。在忙 碌的酒吧找個顯眼的地方,點一杯喜歡的飲料, 看着人們在這裡享受夜晚。

Jogging with the Locals on Quarry Bay Waterfront Promenade 在鰂魚涌海濱長廊上與當地人一起慢跑 Winter and autumn are perfect for jogging in Hong Kong. There is a much bigger running and jogging culture here than many realise. Head over to Quarry Bay Promenade, which stretches along the waterfront from Quarry Bay to Sai Wan Ho, and join the hundreds of locals jogging or strolling beside the picturesque view.

秋冬兩季非常適合在香港慢 跑。這裡的慢跑文化很流 行。前往從鰂魚涌延至西灣 河的鰂魚涌海濱長廊,與數 百名當地人一起在風景如畫 的海濱中漫步。

Dim Sum Lunch

Afternoon Tea

點心午餐

下午茶

The sights, sounds and smells of old China, all rolled into one – that is the dim sum experience at a bustling Cantonese restaurant, especially on a Sunday when families spanning generations get together to enjoy a delicious meal and to catch up. It’s a must-try experience for any visitor.

視覺、聽覺和嗅覺融為一 體——這就是在一家熙熙攘攘 的粵菜館裡吃點心的感覺,尤 其是在周日,幾代人的家庭聚 在一起享受美味午餐,聊聊 天。這個推荐一定要嘗試的。

The British colonial influence is alive and well in the city’s afternoon tea culture. Whether it’s an elegant afternoon special at one of the city’s most luxurious hotels – such as The Peninsula, or an inexpensive afternoon tea menu at a local cha chaan teng, afternoon victuals are a Hong Kong tradition you shouldn’t miss.

Roof-top Dining 屋頂餐廳 A real treat is to enjoy a special meal on the rooftop or balcony of a high-rise building with unimpeded views of the harbour. There are so many choices: check out Aqua or Hutong on 1 Peking Road, or Skye at The Park Lane Hong Kong, a Pullman Hotel in Causeway Bay, or Le 188° at Harbour Grand at North Point, among many.

www.hkcitylife.com | DECEMBER 2019

真正的享受是,在高層建築的屋 頂上飽覽海港風光,盡享美食。 您可以選擇北京路1號的 Aqua 或 Hutong,或在銅鑼灣柏寧酒店的 Skye,或是北角海逸君綽酒店的 Le 188° 等等。

英國的殖民主義影響力與該 市的下午茶文化息息相關。 無論是在城市最豪華的酒店 (例如半島酒店)中享用優 雅下午茶,還是在當地的茶 餐廳享用便宜的下午茶,都 是不錯的選擇。


The National

Folkloric Dance Troupe of Egypt

埃及國家民俗舞蹈團

F

ans of multicultural music performances are in for a special treat as the National Folkloric Dance Troupe of Egypt, a renowned organization representing the Egyptian Government worldwide in cultural exchange, will be performing in Hong Kong in early 2020 as part of its 60th anniversary celebrations. Music and dance are an integral part of Egyptian culture, evolved over 7000 years in one of the oldest civilizations in human history. In fact, the popular Belly Dance (traditional Raks Sharqi) has its roots in Egyptian Folklore Dance of which it is but one variation. Egyptian Folklore Dance, which is rich in colourful culture and history, is an ancient art form that features many different dance forms. The dance itself consists of movements that interpret melodies in the music and spring from the soul to unite its participants in a common bond. Be sure to mark your calendar and treat yourself to this enchanting dance performance and perhaps enhance your appreciation of this venerable cultural heritage with its roots in the dawn of human society.

埃 及國家民俗舞蹈團是舉世聞名的組織,代表埃及政府在全球各地 進行文化交流。 2020年是舞蹈團成立60週年,她們將來香港作 首演,喜歡多元音樂文化的觀眾有機會大飽眼福。

埃及是人類歷史上最古老的文明之一,有着 7000 多年的歷史,音樂 和舞蹈是埃及文化的一部分。實際上,流行的肚皮舞(傳統的 Raks Sharqi )起源於埃及民俗舞蹈,是其中一種風格。埃及民俗舞歷史源 遠流長,文化底蘊深厚;這種古老的藝術形式,擁有多種不同的舞蹈 風格。舞蹈本身的動作盡情詮釋音樂,來自靈魂深處的靈感將舞蹈者 聯繫在一起,形成一種紐帶,帶動全場。 記得將這個活動加在日曆上,享受迷人的舞蹈表演,欣賞歷史感厚重的 古老文化遺產。

obu InterContinental Hong Kong has long been a landmark for Japanese cuisine in the city. Its collaboration with famed chef and restaurateur Nobu Matsuhisa is widely praised. Through 2019, Nobu has been offering a Gourmet Series of a “Roku-Wareki” Japanese dining experience comprising six chapters. Wareki refers to the ancient Japanese calendar whose six solar terms reflect the changes in the seasons and the variation in core ingredients used in the preparation of local cuisine. Nobu’s Wareki series offers six (Roku) distinct set lunch and dinner menus for the year, taking inspiration from key dates in the Wareki calendar and incorporating seasonal seafood. The winter menu is the creation of Executive Chef Rhys Cattermoul and Executive Sushi Chef Satoru Hashimoto. We know we are in for a treat. But first, we should introduce Nobu’s founder and his inspirational life story. Nobuyuki Matsuhisa, known to all as Nobu, was hooked on a career in Japanese cuisine on his first experience to a sushi restaurant. After working in Japan, Nobu went to Lima, Peru to open a Japanese restaurant where he began introducing Peruvian influences into his menu, which has had a lasting influence on his culinary style. A move to open a restaurant in Alaska was thwarted when it burned to the ground before it could open. Nobu worked in Los Angeles to pay off the debt and subsequently opened Matsuhisa in Beverly Hills, attracting a slew of celebrities. Eventually, Nobu partnered with legendary actor Robert De Niro and went on to expand his operation worldwide. Today Nobu

www.hkcitylife.com | DECEMBER 2019

operates 40 Nobu restaurants, nine Matsuhisa outlets and nine Nobu Hotels in 44 cities around the world. We had the 6-course Premium Set Lunch Menu ($888 per person). An 8-course Dinner Menu ($1,488 per person) is also available in the evenings. The lunch set starts with Kinmeidai Sashimi Karashi Su Miso, which is Kinmeidai, a type of red fish, seasoned with karashi mustard and miso, and served with seasonal winter vegetables. Then comes Sayori Sashimi, Dried Miso and Seared Toro, Yuzo Miso. The white fish is seasoned with yuzu-infused olive oil and dried miso while the tender seared toro has a light yuzu miso. The Aka Tai Kara-age Tomato Miso is a nice concoction by Chef Rhys. The tomato miso perfectly highlights the taste of the snapper meat and is served with grilled fish skin. Then comes AS Wagyu Sukiyaki – Kagoshima beef served with enoki mushroom, asparagus and other vegetables, cooked sukiyaki style. The rich marbled beef blends nicely with the green veggies. Another treat is the Exclusive Sushi Selection, four exquisitely prepared sushi pieces including a uni sushi cup, Isake and Katsuo. We finished the lunch set with Caramel Cream Mousse, Apple Compote, Caramelized Walnut, Green Apple Sorbet. It was more than a fitting ending to this delightful meal. With impeccable service, a gorgeous harbour view, and painstakingly prepared dishes, a dining outing at Nobu is an experience to treasure indeed. We highly recommend it.■

Festive Buffet 節日自助餐 for the Holiday Season T

he recently rebranded Hyatt Centric Victoria, a real gem of a hotel located in North Point with a panoramic waterfront view of Victoria Harbour, is offering a sumptuous buffet at The Farmhouse over the winter with a special Christmas edition for the Christmas and New Year holiday period. Hong Kong people love to eat buffet, and many restaurants oblige, particularly at almost any of the city’s main hotels. So it takes something special to stand out, which The Farmhouse manages to do, in our view, combining a wide and interesting selection of quality dishes with friendly ambience and reasonable prices. The spacious restaurant, located on the second floor of the hotel, fulfils the promise of its name, evoking the wholesome goodness of the countryside with decorations and furnishings in warm earth colours. An outside terrace plus fullheight windows brighten the airy dining area while the several large buffet serving stations create a friendly and welcome feel. Billed as “Farm Fresh Buffet”, The Farmhouse adopts a variety of healthy ingredients in its dishes, including organic vegetables and sustainable seafood. A wall-to-wall produce refrigeration cabinet showcases the various healthy ingredients used. T h e F a r m h o u s e ’s b u ff e t s e r v e s a w i d e variety of regional and local cuisines. The regular International Dinner Buffet is $598 per person ($299 per child/senior) from Monday to Thursday and $668 ($334 child/senior) from Friday to Sunday plus public holidays and eves of public holidays. Its International Lunch Buffet is an excellent bargain at $258 per person from Monday to Friday and

$408 on weekends and public holidays. Over the Christmas holiday period the prices for the dinner buffet run a bit higher, from $698 to $738 per person, depending on the date. The chef team under Executive Chef Ryan Dunn has whipped up a wide selection of classic Christmas dishes including Slow Roasted Turkey, Roasted Lamb Rack, Honey Glazed Ham and Salt Crusted Norwegian Salmon. For health-conscious and vegetarian guests, many buffet dishes use organic produce, including Heirloom Tomato Salad, Lyonnaise Potato, Honey-glazed Vegetables and Grilled Vegetable. A wide range of fresh seafood is served at the dinner buffet. In addition to fresh boiled shrimp and mussels, The Farmhouse serves Canadian Lobster, Alaskan King Crab, and a variety of Sashimi and Sushi made to order as well as Grilled Oysters and Shrimp. The Farmhouse also serves a rich selection of Chinese and Asian regional dishes. These include Cantonese BBQ meats such as Char Siu, Roasted Chicken and Roasted Duck; Wok-Fried Chicken, Sweet and Sour Prawns, and Nasi Goreng as well as Assorted Soup Noodles made to order. One of the special features of the buffet is its large selection of XTC Gelato Ice Creams with twelve flavours on offer, including coconut, ginger, sesame, and chocolate. We are impressed with the buffet’s selection of dishes and their uniform quality at The Farmhouse. If you are looking for a hearty gourmet buffet experience during the holidays, give The Farmhouse a try, for sure.■

REIGN the Abalone House

Reign the Abalone House, a high-end retail shop cum restaurant, opened recently at K11 Musea, Hong Kong’s latest luxury shopping mall, in Tsim Sha Tsui. The outlet sells fresh-farmed abalone from South Africa and premium Russian caviar. In addition, Reign serves a special light meal menu designed by Jean-Marc Soldati, a Swiss Michelin-star chef, that includes abalone, caviar, lobster and bird’s nest. Reign’s signature abalone is caught in the waters of Walker Bay in South Africa and slow-cooked to retain collagen. It is then vacuum-packed and shipped by air to Hong Kong, ready to eat. The Russian caviar comes from Russian sturgeon raised in Astrakhan on the Caspian Sea. Reign also offers a variety of gelato and sorbetto topped with rich bird’s nest. Dishes we sampled included Reign Abalone Dark Rye Mille-Feuille with White Truffle Cream ($148) which is small slices of rye bread with a layer of diced slow-cooked abalone garnished with thick grilled egg in Italian white truffle cream, and Reign Abalone and Lobster Mille-Feuille ($148), which is diced abalone and lobster in honey mustard sauce, as first courses.

Tragacanth ($68), both drinks infused with bird’s nest collagen. Reign is the perfect place to stop by for a relaxing and healthy light meal as you take a break from your shopping. Don’t forget to purchase some abalone and caviar while you are there.

Reign the Abalone House 是一家高端零售商店兼餐廳,最近在香 港尖沙咀豪華購物中心 K11 Musea 開業。這家店出售新鮮養殖的南 非鮑魚和優質俄羅斯魚子醬。此外,尚鮑還提供由瑞士米其林一星名 廚尚狄特・約翰馬克設計的簡餐菜單,包括鮑魚、魚子醬、龍蝦及燕 窩輕食。 尚鮑的招牌鮑魚是從南非沃克灣水域捕獲,慢煮以保留膠原。然 後將其真空包裝,空運至香港,即可食用。俄羅斯魚子醬是來自里海 的俄羅斯鱘所產的魚子醬。尚鮑推出的意式冰淇淋及雪葩更用上矝貴 的燕窩,有多個口味選擇。 我們選擇的菜品有鮑魚黑麥千層配白松露醬($148)黑麥千層以 黑麥麵包,混夾南非鮑魚粒及厚燒甜蛋,配以意大利白松露醬,口感 絕佳,還有鮑魚龍蝦千層($148),將鮑魚和龍蝦切成丁配以蜂蜜芥 末醬。

The second course included Slow-cooked South African Abalone Served with Angel Hair Pasta ($198) and Slow-cooked Reign Lobster Collagen with Lobster ($250). In both cases generous portions allowed us to appreciate the full flavour of the tender meat.

第二道菜是 南非慢煮鮑魚配天使面 ( $198 )和 慢煮鮑魚骨膠原配 龍蝦($250)這兩種菜品裡面的鮑魚和龍蝦,分量十足,肉質鮮嫩。

For desserts, we tried Gelato with Bird’s Nest & Collagen ($98) and Sorbetto with Bird’s Nest & Collagen ($98). Special drinks we chose included Aranciata Rossa Sparkling Fruit Juice with Gum Tragacanth ($68) and Melograno E Arancia Sparkling Fruit Juice with Gum

我們嘗試了 燕窩骨膠原意式冰淇淋 ( $98 )和 燕窩骨膠原雪葩 ($98 )。我們選擇的特色飲品包括 Aranciata Rossa 氣泡糖樹膠 ($68)和 Melograno E Arancia 氣泡糖樹膠($68),兩種飲料都融 合了燕窩膠原蛋白。

Reign 是休閒購物的理想場所。這裡既有美味的便餐又有精緻的 伴手禮。一定要購買一些鮑魚和魚子醬。

‘Art Salon: Qin Ai’ at Galerie Ora-Ora 12 Dec – 1 Feb Ora-Ora is pleased to present Art Salon: Qin Ai at the gallery from 12 December until 1 February 2020. An important figure in the contemporary ink movement, her work combines traditional Chinese painting techniques with compositions inspired by Western art. Both contemporary and timeless, it is characterised by delicate brushstrokes, saturated colour tones, and a refined use of space and perspective—elements which give her works a sense of dreamlike unreality. Art Salon: Qin Ai presents a collection of paintings from different stages of Qin’s life, each expressing her unique style and philosophy. 17/F, H Queen's, 80 Queen's Road Central, Central; Mon-Fri: 10am-7pm; Sat: 11am-7pm; 2851 1171; http://www.ora-ora.com

Chuan Spa, at Cordis, Hong Kong 「川」水療中心 Chuan Spa is a luxury spa perched on the top floors of Cordis, Hong Kong, located in the heart of Mong Kok. The spa specialises in treatments guided by traditional Chinese medicine’s pillars of Wu Xing (The Five Elements), Yin and Yang, and Jing Luo (The Meridian System). The treat starts before the treatment with guests able to enjoy the use of a sauna and steam room, followed by a professionally trained therapist conducting a questionnaire to determine which of five elements may be out of balance. Guests may choose from over 30 treatments or opt for a tailor-made treatment if desired. The questionnaire also helps guest to select the massage oil best suited to restore the missing element. We picked out the “Spa and Dine” package (priced at HK$888 per person), which includes a 60-minute body massage – a choice of Chuan Harmony or Chuan Balancing treatment methods, followed by a business set lunch at Ming Court, the hotel’s highly touted Michelinstarred Cantonese restaurant. The appetising lunch includes a trio of Dim Sum, Chicken Consommé, Garoupa Fillet, Cubed Abalone Fried Rice and dessert. Guests may also use the gym, fitness studio and rooftop swimming pool. For that special occasion – a social “girls gathering” perhaps, Chuan also has a four-person private room. Advance booking is required. At Chuan Spa, you get a highly relaxing spa session plus an excellent meal at an acclaimed restaurant, all for a very reasonable price – a deal that is hard to turn down.

Hotel Industry Career 從業時間薦:

25 years / 年 About Me :

I was into motorcycling, but my wife thought I should stop since we have two kids and I have a lot of responsibilities; so, I gave it up. Now my hobby is to continue learning more and more about Hong Kong and share with my colleagues what I have learned; I take a lot of pleasure in that.

Bonus Recommendation 精心推荐 : If you want to celebrate a special occasion, try a super-memorable helicopter ride for 15-30 minutes around the city followed by a Chinese fine-dining experience at a top restaurant such as Shang Palace at Kowloon Shangri-La, Tin Lung Heen at The Ritz Carlton, or Yan Toh Heen at the InterContinental Hong Kong. 如果您慶祝特別節日,可以在城市中度過難忘的直升機之旅,大概15至30分鐘,然後在 九龍香格里拉大酒店,麗思卡爾頓酒店的天龍軒等餐廳享受中式美食,或香港洲際酒店的欣圖軒。

關於本人薦:

我曾熱愛騎摩托車,但是我妻子 認為我不應該繼續冒險,因為我 們有兩個孩子,承擔着很多責 任,最終我選擇放棄騎摩托。現 在我更喜歡學習香港知識,與人 分享,讓生活更精彩。

Extra Tip 額外提示 : For a moderately priced but excellent meal, try Peking Garden, Lei Garden or Jade Garden. 如果您想要品嚐價格適中但又美味的一餐,可以去試試北京樓,利苑或翠園。

Last Advice:

Hong Kong Favourite :

Check with your concierge for more dining recommendations and hidden Hong Kong treasures for you to explore.

I love local Hong Kong food; there is such a variety. I love to explore new food outlets and new dishes.

貼心建議: 向禮賓部諮詢;以獲取更多就餐建議和香港隱藏 的寶藏。

最喜歡香港哪裡?

我喜歡香港美食,多種多樣; 還喜歡探索新餐廳,新菜式。
