愛買愛吃愛玩樂

Fashion, food, fun     置身於多倫多、溫哥華和卡加利這樣美麗的城市,只 要你願意,不愁沒有節目。特別是距離聖誕佳節只有個多 月時間,已得籌劃禮物清單、要以何種造型打扮出席大大 小小的派對……太多的地方想去要去,時間卻這樣有限。     不是說女孩子開心時要買鞋,不開心時更加要買鞋 嗎?今期的潮鞋秘笈盡是最流行的款式,讓你步履生姿, 更添魅力。出門前不要忘記噴上全新Chanel  No5  Red香 水,當然,如果你擁有的是全球僅得55瓶、由Baccarat打 造水晶瓶身的限量版時,感覺相信會更加良好。要愈變愈 美麗和自信滿滿的出現人前,自然要緊貼日與夜、絢麗與 硬朗的時裝潮流,今期為你介紹女士的百變形象。     我們當然不會忽略了男士們,除了LV的天橋騷,還奉 上時尚品牌休閒鞋,提供保養貼士。     以貌取人,失之子羽。今期的封面人物李施嬅原來並 沒有想象中的嬌柔,入行15年的她對演戲抱有一團火,為 了拓闊演藝路,不惜像新人般到北美不住試鏡,屢敗屢戰 的堅持,不但為她贏到2個外國影展的最佳女主角獎,也 成為北美電視劇的主角。難得的是她即使怎樣忙碌,也積 極參與動物保育活動,內文便分享了她和好姊妹姚子羚到 非洲觀賞動物大遷徙的圖片。     由多位加拿大名廚組成的烹飪團隊,將於1月遠征 里昂,代表加拿大參與被譽為廚藝界奧林匹克的Bocuse  d’ Or大賽,有機會取得獎牌零的突破。加油!加拿大隊!

here is never a dearth of things to do in beautiful cities like Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary. But as we head closer and closer to the holiday season, invitations to parties here and galas there are just beginning to pile up. Dilemmas abound: Where to go, what to do? So many places, so little time.

Before you start planning your festive itinerary, make sure you check out what the most fashionable feet will be wearing with our definitive shoe bible for women—men, don’t worry, we also got you covered. And don’t walk out that door ladies without your Chanel No5 Red, that is, if you can get your hands on the custom designed Baccarat bottle of parfum. There are only 55 in the world, you know. Just sayin’. We hope you will be inspired by our cover girl Selena Lee, who is not only a rising TV star but the busy actress dedicates much of her time to save the animals. From the depths of the ocean to the savannah of Africa, Lee never misses an opportunity to be at one with nature in her pursuit of wildlife conservation. Back on the fashion front, it’s no surprise that today’s woman is always on the move: from boho and go-go to shimmer and shine, she seamlessly transitions from gender-neutral daywear to glittery glamour. And while we are on the subject of all that shines, we’d be remiss if we didn’t say hip hip hooray to Team Canada who is in Lyon, France competing in the most prestigious culinary competition in the world. Your hometown foodies are behind you all the way. Bonne chance and bon appétit! Sincerely,

In the trenches

This classic wardrobe staple will never let you down Story & styling | Sum Chan Photography | Simon C Makeup | Angel Mok Model | Badu at Calcarries Photography assistant | Anthony

乍寒還暖,正好需要一件乾濕褸。 源自英國的乾濕褸,已有過百年歷史。回溯1914 年Trench Warfare戰事爆發,結構適合攜帶軍事用品的 Burberry防水風衣大受歡迎(另一老牌子Aquascutum也於 同期加入生產)。Trench意指「溝」,是戰時的地下戰壕。 這英國設計也因此而起名為trench coat。後來盛行至美、 法兩國,不再是軍隊專用,更成為日常服飾。 今時今日的trench,多側重外形設計,換上較薄和 輕身的布料,減少了功能性的細節,未必是擋風抵寒的必 選,卻成為能夠媲美牛仔褲和白恤衫,易於配襯搭的百搭 選項。今季多個品牌不約而同於系列加插了trench look, 經典卡其色以外、又見軍綠;既有褸也有斗篷,有的更來 一點變奏:好像Givenchy的背心斗篷twin-set與Valentino 的大帽子設計。稱得上是trench look,當然伴隨各式各樣 同色系的配搭品,尤其是裸色長、短靴。鍾情經典的可以 考慮形神俱備的老牌踏實款式,售價高昂但值得投資。

The dry and wet warts from the UK have been around for more than a hundred years. Back in 1914, during WWI, Trench Warfare broke out and the Burberry waterproof windbreaker was indispensable, suitable for carrying military supplies. Aquascutum, was also produced during the same period. Later, the trench coat became popular in the US and France, becoming part of daily dress. With today’s trench, there is more emphasis on shape and design, using thinner and lighter fabrics, reducing functional details like protecting against wind and cold. Suffice it to say that the trench coat has become as ubiquitous a fashion statement as jeans and a white tee.

閒而不懶的 Loafers

Laid-back loafers

Slip-on shoes have never been so popular. But caring for them is essential Story | Simon Au & Timothy Lo Photography | Ray Tang 無綁帶款式設計的loafers向有「懶佬鞋」之 稱,實際並不是為貪方便而設。「Loaf」本意指閒逸 的生活方式,loafers的對象正是一群追求擁有自在 生活態度的人,手工不但不比其他鞋款差,製作還 相當認真講究。

據說loafers是挪威漁民在休漁期打發時間衍 生出來的小玩意。直至三十年代,美國百年鞋廠 G.H. Bass正式推出世界第一雙loafers,並以 挪威語Weejuns來命名,特色是在鞋頭位 置縫製嘴唇形孔的橫間小袋,方便放 置硬幣來撥公眾電話和乘公車, 大受學生歡迎,成為學院風 的重要配搭單品。

The word loafer when applied to a person is not all too flattering. But when referring to the classic shoe, its laid-back, casual style is unmistakable. Loafers are said to have their origin with Norwegian fishermen, who made them as a pastime during non-fishing seasons. By the 1930s, American heritage shoe factory G.H. Bass officially introduced loafers to the world, naming them in Norwegian, Weejuns. And that signature slotted strip of leather on the instep to hold coins gave birth to the penny loafer. An instant hit, they fast became an absolute necessity amongst the preppy set.

Gucci在1953年將loafers加上 horsebit馬銜鏈金屬鞋扣,掀起一陣 「horsebit loafers」時尚熱潮,近年被品 牌創意總監Alessandro Michele再次捧到 主流。還有融合流蘇與傳統設計的tassel loafers及駕駛汽車專用的driving loafers等 等。Loafers的皮革比一般皮鞋柔軟,對於 腳掌比外國人較闊的亞洲人來說,會穿得 相對舒適。

Even Gucci long ago established a fresh interpretation of the loafer. In 1953 it added a metal horsebit, which pretty much became a Gucci signature, revived again in recent years by creative director Alessandro Michele.

百年英國皮革品牌John Lobb以充滿 彈性技術製成的Goodyear無縫貼邊縫製 鞋履,令鞋履更為輕盈;Berluti的皮鞋則 採用經專利技術Patina處理的Venezia皮 革,所以會呈現獨特的深淺色調;Tod’ s 的鞋底由橡膠豆豆及高質牛皮組合而 成,舒適之餘,酒紅色鞋身更見奢華; 而Church’ s的小窩釘、Giuseppe Zanotti 交錯的黑藍菱格、Gucci的monogram及 Bottega Venenta經典編織皮革都滿足了 追求玩味或視覺效果的男士。

Other companies like British heritage brand John Lobb developed the Goodyear technique to make lighter, more flexible and more supple shoes. And the super luxury leather goods brand Berluti applies its patented technique to treat Venezia leather to give all its shoes a two-tone patina.

皮鞋保養的二三事 皮鞋保養是一門學問,有著多種保養 用具和產品,是以特別請來皮鞋店HOAX 的店長James講解當中需注意事項。 首先,皮鞋必須放在乾爽通風的位 置,可放置吸濕劑防止皮革發霉。由於濕 氣會使皮革軟化,因此應在鞋子裡放置鞋 撐,以免鞋形垮掉。James又提到若皮鞋 濕了,鞋撐更是不可缺,藏起來前亦應先 自然風乾;若強行用風筒烘乾,可能會造 成皮革乾裂,再穿時就更容易破掉。 James同時建議一至兩星期便擦皮 鞋一次,以保持皮鞋乾淨。因為皮革是有 機物,需要細緻保養。擦鞋時刷上透明的 鞋油,再用馬毛刷用力擦拭,讓當中的油 分滲入皮革表面細孔,保持亮麗和色澤。 打蠟則可視乎個人喜好,擦上鞋蠟時,可 用磨光布沾一點水,打磨出來的蠟面會更 亮;喜歡皮鞋亮得像照鏡般,可以選用寫 有「Mirror Gloss」或「High Shine Gloss」的 鞋蠟。

5 毛刷

6 磨光布

Today there are myriad styles of loafers that include tassel loafers and even driving loafers. And the mocassin style made with soft supple leathers make them appealing to Asians who tend to have wider feet.

Tod’s, too, and its iconic rubber pebble outsole, combines soft calfskins to its a luxurious line of moccasins. Church’s studs, Giuseppe Zanotti’s black and-blue checks, Gucci’s monogram and Bottega Veneta’s classic woven leather all offer their own versions of the slip-on shoe.

PrOTECT yOUr sHOEs shoe maintenance is a discipline and requires special tools. The first rule is to store shoes in airy places, or use dehumidifying agents to stave off mildew. Humidity softens leather, so shoe trees are a must to keep shoes in shape, especially when they become wet. They must be completely dry before being put away, but don’t try using hair-dryers because they will cause the leather to crack when the shoes are put on again. some suggest shining shoes once every week or two. As leather is organic, it needs care. Use colourless shoe oil and brush vigorously with a horse-hair brush to get the oil into the leather’s pores. This will maintain the shine and colour. Waxing is another option. When waxing, moisten the polishing cloth with water to enhance the effect. Use wax products labelled as “Mirror Gloss” or “High shine” to achieve a glossy shine.

7 鞋撐

皮鞋保養必備。能夠擦走鞋面上的塵埃 和污跡,同時能讓有色的鞋油擦得更均 勻。一般皮鞋宜以馬毛擦拭,因質地柔 軟不會刮花皮革。

多為纖維密度較高的絨面布,於補色、 修復時使用;若家中沒有絨布,亦可剪 開舊T恤或絲襪代替。

於擦鞋或收藏時放在鞋中,防止皮鞋變 形,尤其在鞋子濕水後皮革軟化,更需 要鞋撐定形。

Brush A must-have to remove dirt and ensure an even application of coloured shoe oil. Horse-hair brushes are recommended; they are soft and won’t damage the leather.

Polishing cloth soft tightly woven fabrics for colouring or repairs. If you are the frugal type, consider cutting up that old T-shirt or even pantyhose.

Shoe tree Insert these into shoes during polishing or while in storage to help retain their shape, especially when shoes are wet.

天橋無不散之騷

A wild life

Louis Vuitton gets back to nature Story | 冰汪 早於今年一月中的巴黎男裝周期間,Louis Vuitton宣佈藝術總監 Kim Jones將會離開,令這場秋冬騷成為一場事先張揚的farewell表演。 Kim Jones以 「Overview」 為主題,令人聯想這是他在LV的總結,但 只要看到第一套衣服上的landscape鳥瞰圖案,便明白是語帶雙關。據 聞這些非常National Geographic的圖案,是Kim Jones親自坐直升機在 肯雅上空拍攝的。選擇到肯雅,因為生於英倫的他,小時候長居非洲南 美(包括肯雅)。七年前加入LV的首個系列,同樣包括大量非洲及肯雅 元素,來到旅程完結,亦以回歸肯雅作終點。 打頭陣出場的look 1,貫徹多年的戶外風,飄逸photo print風褸, 結合了monogram暗花,裡面是灰色tee與短褲,襯上landscape圖案 leggings與行山鞋,很山系。最別致是掛在頸上的survival necklace, 扣上四個分別為鎖、軍刀、哨子及鈎的求生charms。 Kim Jones說告別系列的重點是能夠千變萬化,讓布料陪伴身軀周 遊列國,男模身上以earth tone為主。最突出是幾件螢光衣服,螢光黃 與螢光橙,分別以樽領毛衣、外套lining及其他小物姿態現身,畫龍點 睛,令整個系列sharp醒不少。 在LV的漫天世界,monogram永遠是創作軸心,這次Kim Jones 炮製了不少精采產品:先為monogram調好布料色調,淺墨綠色的稱 為Monogram Titanium、黑灰光面的是Monogram Eclipse Glaze、 招牌啡色光面的是Monogram Glaze,還有以monogram設計的小巧 Messenger PM bag,平日逛街大小適中剛好。

Artistic Director Kim Jones is exiting Louis Vuitton so it’s only fitting for his last collection to be titled Overview. And if you think the collection looks they jumped off the pages of National Geographic, you’d be right. Jones’ inspiration came from photographs he took from a helicopter flying across Kenya. Seven years ago, when Jones first joined LV, his début collection included many African and Kenyan elements. Now at the end of his journey at LV, he returns to Kenya. The rugged outdoors figures big for fall, including landscape-patterned leggings and hiking shoes for a real mountain look. The most striking element is the survival charm necklace with a lock, a Swiss army knife, a whistle and a hook. The main point of the farewell collection is about versatility. The fabric that accompanies one’s travel around the world includes mostly earth tones with a dash of eye-catching fluorescent pieces in yellow and orange. And as every season the LV monogram can’t be missed.

喚醒明眸神采

WAKE-UP CALL Advanced Génifique Eye by Lancôme awakens the eye area and visibly combats the 10 signs of aging Story | Clarice Yik

眼睛是臉上最先獲注目的部位,反映情感和個性。為保留 女士們活潑亮麗的面部表情,Lanc ô me特別重新研製及調配出 Advanced Génifique Eye全新嫩肌活膚眼霜。 Advanced Génifique Eye全新嫩肌活膚眼霜煥發眼部肌膚神 采,對抗十大衰老和疲勞跡象,掃走膚質欠佳、淡斑、膚色不均 勻、欠缺緊緻度和彈性、缺乏光澤、黑眼圈、浮腫、粗糙和無精 打采。新配方有效紓緩和亮白肌膚,效果彷如沉睡一晚後神清氣 朗般。 Lancôme研究中心從雙歧和酵母中精心挑選的益生菌成分, 經過發酵、分解和過濾,為皮膚帶來最大益處。全新嫩肌活膚眼 霜,高效發揮活性益生菌成分,成效有目共睹。 當中的Light-Smooth技術在皮膚表面形成遮蓋保護膜,能捕 捉水分子,具即時保濕和重組特性,即時紓緩肌膚,締造柔軟絲 滑感,完全滿足眼部四周肌膚的需求,撫平和軟化皮膚,延緩初 老跡像或疲勞外觀。 早上塗抹Advanced Génifique Eye Light-Pearl精華,以打圈 動作按摩眼部四周,輔以高效珍珠形按摩塗抹器,打開並增亮眼 部區域,減少浮腫。晚上塗抹眼霜,讓眼部肌膚獲得充分休息修 護。於周末再用Advanced Génifique Eye Light-Pearl精華眼膜, 只須敷15分鐘,活成成分即滲入肌膚,提亮眼部四周區域。

Eyes are the first thing people notice; they reflect a person’s emotions and give insight into their personality. To help women preserve the vibrant expressiveness of their face, Lancôme has reinvented its eye contour cream. Advanced Génifique Eye awakens the eye area and visibly combats the 10 signs of aging: texture, imprints, uneven complexion, firmness, elasticity, lack of luminosity, lack of freshness, lack of softness, dark circles and puffiness. Smoothing and brightening, its new formula is like a sleep concentrate in a single application. 15ml | $83

Key to the performance of the new Advanced Génifique Eye is the astonishing power of the iconic active ingredients of the serum: probiotic fractions. Lancôme’s Research has worked on carefully-selected probiotic fractions from a bifidus and a yeast, which have been fermented, fragmented and filtered to bring the best possible benefits to the skin. To optimise the efficacy of Advanced Génifique Eye, its texture base was also reinvented thanks to Light-Smooth technology that forms a veiling, protective film on the surface of the skin (capable of capturing water molecules, it has instant moisturising and restructuring properties), bringing it immediate comfort, and a soft and silky feel that fully targets the needs of the eye area, smoothing and softening the skin. Its properties make it an ideal ally for combating the appearance of the first signs or fatigue and aging. Adopt the full Advanced Génifique Eye routine for an ever fresher, brighter and rested eye area. In the morning, use the Advanced Génifique Eye LightPearl serum to combat puffiness. Used with circular movements around the eyes, its high-performance, pearl-shaped massaging applicator opens up and brightens the eye area and diminishes puffiness. In the evening, apply the new Advanced Génifique Eye cream to the eye contour for a fully rested eye area on waking. On weekends, apply the Advanced Génifique Eye Light-Pearl mask for 15 minutes, the time needed for the active ingredients to infuse into the skin and unveil a bright eye area.

In nudes, pinks, oranges and powerful reds, and in defiance of convention, Rouge D’Armani Matte pushes the limits with a groundbreaking formula: intense, long-lasting colour with an extreme matte finish—all in a single stroke. Renowned for its matte lipstick expertise, Giorgio Armani unveils a new makeup accomplice thanks to a micronized pigment process. Containing up to 50 per cent more pigments than a traditional matte lipstick, the secret to the Rouge D’Armani Matte formula lies in the amount of dry materials it uses. Giorgio Armani Beauty laboratories were able to limit the amount of oil in the formula, optimizing pigments and oil-absorbing fillers. INTENSE MATTE: the high concentration of pigments takes matte to new heights, dressing lips in more even, extreme colour and maximum coverage. LASTING COMFORT: the easywear matte finish comes courtesy of a newly optimized filler-to-oil ratio that does not feel dry. A light-diffusing gel comprises 25 per cent the formulation. It diffuses and scatters the light for a rich matte finish that looks smooth and supple, not dry. IN ONE STROKE: an emollient paste agent, ester oils and a hydrogenated jojoba oil make for a creamy, glideon application. A unique formula, the addition of spherical powders delivers a lip-filling effect on the surface for seductively smooth lips every time.

The science of skin regeneration Story | Sidney Chao

護膚問答─Neostrata公司研發部總監李雅玲博士 (Yaling Lee, PhD) SKIN CARE Q&A with Yaling Lee, PhD, Director of R&D NeoStrata Company

問:什麼材料的護膚產品最是適合亞裔人士的皮膚? 答:亞裔人士皮膚老化的最大問題是皮膚色澤、色斑和黑 點,此外是彈性和緊緻度減退,部分人士更會對一般皮膚護理產 品過敏。 Neostrata開發了幾種針對上述情況的成分,包括葡萄糖胺 (NeoGlucosamine)、葡萄糖酸內酯(Gluconolactone)和仿生酸 (Bionic acids)、這些成分有多種抗衰老功效,令皮膚重現光澤、 改善色斑、黑點、灰黃及皮膚質感。臨床研究顯示,不同膚質人 士,包括亞裔,每日使用含有Neostrata結合抗衰老技術研發成分 的護膚產品,效果相當顯著。 問:如何配合使用產品,獲取最佳效果? 答:理想的抗衰老護膚程序包括潔面霜、精華素、含防曬效 果的日用潤膚霜、夜用潤膚霜及眼部滋潤霜,此外可選擇果酸去 角質煥膚液或者仿生抗衰老面霜,每周用一至三次,應對特殊護 膚需要;對於特定部位及問題,例如頸項等,可採用針對性的治 療方法。 問:對於20至50歲或更成熟年齡的亞裔女性,最好的護理程 序為何? 答:年青皮膚常見問題為色斑、黯啞膚質及幼紋等, NeoStrata Enlighten line系列可以解決問題,系列包含保養整個臉 部的產品,還有對抗斑點及去角質的治療產品。隨著年齡增長, 皮膚會出現比較明顯的皺紋、緊緻度減退及出現色斑,NeoStrata Skin Active line加強抗衰老系列,提供多種抗老化功效,令皮膚 再顯年青。盡早養成每日使用抗衰老護膚產品的習慣,有助保持 青春光采。請謹記,每天都要使用有防曬功效的潤膚產品。

What ingredients work best for Asian skin? Asian aging skin concerns are primarily focused on tone, discoloration and dark spots, as well as a loss of elasticity and firmness. Some Asians can also experience a greater skin sensitivity to topical skin care products. NeoStrata has discovered several ingredients that address those concerns, including NeoGlucosamine, Gluconolactone and Bionic acids. These ingredients work on multiple antiaging benefits, including tone brightening, discoloration, dark spots, sallowness and texture. In clinical studies, using a daily regimen of skincare products containing NeoStrata’s clinically-developed ingredients along with other leading antiaging technologies, results have shown benefits on a range of skin types, including Asian skin, and have also been shown to be well tolerated. What is the optimal number of products to be used together? An optimal anti-aging skincare regimen includes a cleanser, a serum, a daytime moisturizer with SPF, a nighttime moisturizer product for overnight and an eye treatment. In addition, regimen boosters such as at-home glycolic peels or a microdermabrasion treatment, can be used one to three times a week as extra treatment for specific skin care concerns. Targeted treatments can also be added to a regimen for specific spots and problem areas such as the neck. What is the best routine for Asian skin in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s and beyond? Younger skin concerns typically begin with discolorations, dull skin texture and visible fine lines which the NeoStrata Enlighten line can address. NEOSTRATA’s Enlighten line consists of a fullface regimen of products with an additional spot treatment or at-home peel if needed. As the skin ages, coarse wrinkles and loss of firmness are added to discoloration concerns. The NEOSTRATA Skin Active line is a high strength anti-aging line that provides comprehensive anti-aging benefits to help make your skin look more youthful. Regular daily use of anti-aging skincare products early on can help keep skin looking young. And, remember to use a daily moisturizer with sunscreen every day. ELITEGEN

火紅誘惑

The hunt for red November

For the first time since its debut in 1921, the legendary perfume will be in a fiery red bottle Story | Leslie Yip

黑白配或許是Chanel最經典的顏色組合,但亦 曾見她運用不同層次、深淺及鮮艷程度的紅色。深 紅、石榴石或紅寶石的紅,用於天鵝絨、羊毛厚布 或雪紡,製成西裝外套、皮包又或是唇膏,紅色是 永遠的搶眼奪目。 對於香水控來說本月是屏息以待的大日子,因 為香水中的經典Chanel’ s N° 5將於今個月推出紅色 限量特別版。這是香水自1921年面世以後,首次換 上魅惑的火紅瓶身。 紅色特別版香水會有三種濃度:淡香 水(L’ E a u )、 淡 香 精( E a u d e P a r f u m )及 香 精 (Parfum),淡香水的濃度最淡,然後是淡香精。 100ml的紅色玻璃瓶單是放在化妝桌已經十分突 出。不過最具收藏價值的肯定是紅色Baccarat水晶 瓶的900ml香精,每瓶都有編號,全球限量55瓶, 相信會吸引香水收藏迷爭相入手。

Black and white may be Chanel’s most classic colour combo, but she explored red in all its gradation, vibrancy and depth. Whether crimson, garnet or ruby, teamed with velvet, tweed or chiffon, for a suit, a handbag or a lipstick, red has always made a statement. Now, perfume collectors have been holding their breath since they caught wind about a very unique limited edition of Chanel’s N°5 to be released on November 5 at all Chanel beauty counters: the Red Edition. For the very first time since its debut in 1921, the legendary perfume will be produced in a fiery red bottle. It will be available in three formats: L’Eau, Eau de Parfum and Parfum. The L’Eau is the lightest version, followed by the Eau de Parfum. They will be offered in a 100ml mass manufactured red glass bottle (pictured far right) that is sure to stand out on your dressing table. But if you are looking for something extra special, opt for the Parfum in a handcrafted and numbered 900ml bottle made of red Baccarat crystal. Limited to just 55 bottles worldwide, it is expected to be one of the most sought-after editions of the perfume.

製作Baccarat水晶需要有耐性、精準及專業工藝。工序由碳酸鉀混合物 的溶點達到攝氏1450度便展開,之後熾熱的琉璃溶液便可進行吹製或模 製。工匠會親手為每件製成品打磨,然後進行雕刻、人手蝕刻及鍍金。 Making a Baccarat crystal piece takes patience, precision and expertise. It all starts when the sand potash mixture reaches 1450 degrees Celsius. The hot glass infusion is then collected to be free blown or molded. Each piece is polished and finished by hand, and then enhanced by a combination of engraving, manual etching and gilding.

It is considered one of the most iconic perfume bottles in the world. This will be the first time it is produced in red. ELITEGEN

李施嬅的積極是討諸行動的。 希望多些人留意到她首次拍的北美電視劇 《Blood and water》第二季,會得主動接觸素未謀 面的傳媒,爭取如何早日見報;想要多些人關心 保育,身體力行擠時間自資往非洲親歷動物大遷 徙,尋找大象和大猩猩,拍照片給傳媒刊登,既 可保持曝光率,更重要是引起關注。 有些事處理得不好會顯得很難看,像是但求 見報似的。但言談間那團火卻騙不了人,李施嬅 對所追求事物的激情,的確教人刮目相看。 入行15年的李施嬅在TVB向來是大樹好遮 蔭,導演覺得角色適合便會找她,只需考慮接還 是不接。直至這兩年跳出安樂區,不住在北美試 鏡,失望而回的多。有好幾次殺進最後兩強,但 都失諸交臂,對方明言不選她,並非是她的演技 問題,而是對手知名度更高、市場價值較大。所 以她看《La La Land》,當Emma Stone在多次試 鏡失敗時,沮喪灰心的說:「I can’ t handle this anymore ! (再也承受不了)」即時有共鳴。「TVB原 來是一個安樂窩,自己慣了被保護。來到真實世 界去試鏡,和其他人競爭,方知過程原來這樣艱 辛,才發覺自己很多方面都未夠好。有時真的很 傷自尊,接受不來。第一次試鏡失敗時,很不甘 心,情緒足足低落了一個星期。如何保持鬥心, 也是一種學習。告訴自己跌低沒關係,最重要是 要站起身,堅持下去。」

Selena Lee is a woman of action. Now in the second season of her first North American TV series Blood and Water (pictured below), Selena Lee contacted eliteGen directly to get more exposure for her new show. Since she started at TVB 15 year ago, Lee has always been the go-to choice in Hong Kong. Directors were always calling her to play myriad roles. But two years ago, Lee jumped out of her comfort zone and came to North America to go on auditions non-stop. The disappointments were new to her as she did not get many of the parts she went to audition for. Even coming close and being one of the final two, she lost out on the role to other more famous Chinese actors. But seeing the film La La Land, and hearing Emma Stone’s character say, “I can’t handle this anymore” after failing so many auditions, Lee saw her real life self on the big screen. “It turns out that TVB was a very comfortable home. I was used to being protected,” says Lee. “Once I entered the real world of auditions and competition with others, I realized that the process was actually very challenging. I then noticed that there were many areas I still was not good at, which was quite bruising to the ego and difficult to accept. The lesson learned is to keep fighting, to keep telling oneself that it’s fine to fall down. What’s important is to get back up, and to persist.”

NEVEr gIVE up Lee’s fighting spirit and the fire in her belly continued to grow. Doing a lot of prep work, she welcomed every opportunity, acknowledging the many possibilities and surprises ahead. And whether too busy or just too tired, Lee kept up her rigorous workouts. Says Lee: “While you are filming, the schedule is grueling. So physical fitness training is one way to build up discipline, while building up your health and your strength.”

永不言棄 屢敗屢戰,卻反而激起李施嬅的鬥心,她說現在自己 心內對演戲那團火,是之前從未有過的,永不言放棄。「置 身娛樂圈的確很多時都很被動、有不知道甚麼時候會被選 上的危機感,然而也因此有著很多可能性和驚喜在前方, 我也試過做生意,但發覺最令我開心的還是演戲。也因為 要做好準備迎接每一個機會,有時即使多麼辛苦或疲倦, 都會保持做運動,因為拍攝期間通常都很辛苦,訓練體能 是鍛鍊意志的方法之一,也可以保持健康,加強能量。」 像這次也是經試鏡得來《Blood and water》第二季中黑 警殺手角色,去年12月到安省咸美頓進行拍攝前,她便做 足準備工夫,學功夫和槍擊之餘,也積極減掉15磅。 「那是 一個性格很多陰暗面和悲傷的角色,為了不可告人的的原 因做壞事甚至殺人,身型瘦些會顯得滄桑和深沉 。這是我 從未演過的角色,希望可以有說服力,也為我的演藝路開 拓新方向。」

貼心姊妹 李施嬅跟胡杏兒、胡定欣、黃智雯、姚子羚和胡蓓 蔚組成的「胡說八道會」是圈中著名的姊妹淘。去年電視 台拍她們一伙人到澳洲旅行,期間她拿出憑微電影《Once More》拿到的最佳女主角獎跟她們分享喜悅時,當事人固 然喜極而泣,身邊的姊妹們也陪著落淚。「在我們這班姊妹 當中,只有我一個人沒有在TVB拿過獎,有時會想是不是 自己不夠好,不是一個好演員,真的感到很氣餒,幸好有 她們在我身邊,不住的打氣和帶正能量給我,讓我堅持下 去。」 李施嬅在2008年憑《紫禁驚雷》第一次獲提名競逐TVB 的最佳女主角,當年的對手是黎姿佘詩曼宣萱和張可 頤,落敗是意料中事。「現在的新一代演員可能冒升得快, 感覺沒那樣深刻。在我入行的時代,每個人都試過做小角 色,慢慢熬上去,要經歷好多才得到認同,每一個獎項都 得來不易,所以第一次拿到最佳女主角獎,即使那不是規 模很大的影展,但那一刻真的很激動,得到認同的莫大喜 悅,教人忍不住哭。」 她很感恩這兩年多有姊妹們在身邊的日子,「如果沒 有她們出現在我的生命,我不會變成今天的李施嬅。杏兒 的超凡工作態度豹嫂的堅強智雯的幽默子羚經常陪 我喝酒聊天定欣工作雖然辛苦也依然正面處之……都讓 我覺得工作也可以是開心事。」 許多人以為娛樂圈存在太多利益衝突,很難交到知心 好友。但李施嬅卻說她們「胡說八道會」這幾個女孩子均是 很正面的互相幫助,彼此為對方著想,沒有妒忌較勁這回 事。「大家都很努力工作。其實身邊人愈好,自己也會愈 好;就等於你扶起一個人時,自己也會因而站得高了。」

Things started to look up after she auditioned and got the role of a cop killer in the second season of Blood and Water. Last December, before she went to Hamilton, Ontario to film, she worked hard to prepare for her new role. Not only did she learn martial arts and shooting, she also lost 15 pounds. “This is a role that has many dark and sad sides,” says Lee. “She has secret reasons for doing bad things, even killing. A slimmer body would look more seasoned and darker. This is a role I have never done before, so I hope it will be convincing, and will open up new directions for me.”

SISTErHOOD Even though Lee’s career is on an upswing, she still finds the time to see TVB besties Myolie Wu, Nancy Wu, Mandy Wong, Elaine Yiu and paisley Wu. And last year, the friends took a trip to Australia to film a travel reality show for TVB. During the trip Lee and her friends shared some teary-eyed joy when she received a Best Actress Award for her role in Once More. “Among our sisters, I was the only one who hadn’t won an award at TVB,” says Lee. “Sometimes I thought I wasn’t a good enough actress, and got really discouraged. Fortunately, I have my friends by my side, constantly cheering me on and passing on positive energy. There isn’t jealousy or competition. If I did not have them in my life, I would not be the Selena Lee of today. In truth, the better the people around you, the better you will be. It’s just like when you are lifting someone up, you will stand taller.” In 2008, Lee was nominated for the TVB Best Actress Award for The Life and Times of a Sentinel. unlucky for her, that year she went up against the very famous gigi Lai, Charmaine Sheh, Jessica Hester Hsuan and Maggie Cheung. So it was not so much of a surprise that Lee did not win. “These days the new generation of actors rise rapidly that we do not have strong impressions of them,” says Lee. “But when I first started acting, everyone tried small roles and had to climb up slowly. It took a lot before gaining recognition, and every award was hard earned. So this time, for my first Best Actress Award, even though it was not from a well-known, prestigious film festival, I was still very emotional when I won. It was a great joy to be recognized, so I couldn’t help but cry.”

prOMOTINg CONSErVATION These days, whenever Lee has time off, she would go to Los Angeles to take acting classes, and she would also participate in conservation and environmentalist activities. Says Lee: “I like animals a lot, and so I want to share the message of environmental protection and conservation. But I always participate as a private individual.”


The better the people around you, the better you will be. It’s just like when you are lifting someone up, you will stand taller.

宣揚保育 現在每逢放假,李施嬅都到洛杉磯上演技課程,同 時也參與有關保育和環保的活動。「我很喜歡動物,好 想宣揚環保及保育訊息,不過都是以私人性質參與。」 早前她便到過夏威夷參與和鯊魚一起潛水的活動, 鼓吹停止吃魚翅的風氣,還拍了好些和鯊魚共游的照片 給傳媒發放。「公眾不是沒有聽過,但久而久之卻淡忘 了,我們希望多做一些能喚起大家注意的事,而圖片往 往是吸引大家注意力的最佳媒介之一。」 9月初趁著由她擔正女主角的《刑事偵緝檔案第4 輯》還未開拍,她便和姚子羚抽了八天空檔到非洲看動 物大遷徙,起程前單是打各式預防針已要個多月,還要 轉接的先飛曼谷奈羅比再到盧旺達。「這不是容易 去的地方,各式費用加起來也頂肉赤。但親眼目睹大象 和大猩猩等是我向來嚮往的事,值得花這些時間和錢。 其實我真的不明白為什麼有人那樣短視,為了得到象牙 而非法獵殺大象,我相信很多人都有興趣接觸大自然, 觀賞動物,以此作招徠發展旅遊業,不是可以賺取更多 收入嗎﹖把動物殺了就什麼都沒有了。」

With the courage of her convictions, she also took a trip to Hawaii for an event in which she goes diving with the sharks to discourage eating shark fin. “It’s not that the public has not heard about this before, but people forget after a while. We just hope to raise awareness, and pictures are often one of the best mediums to draw attention.” Before shooting starts this fall for the TVB TV series Detective Investigations File IV, which she stars in, Lee went with gal pal Elaine Yiu to Africa to watch the great migration of animals. Not only did she keep herself in the public eye, she also raised awareness for nature conservation. Just to get all the immunization shots took them over a month. She found elephants and gorillas and took pictures to share with the media. During the trip, they have to first fly to Bangkok, then Nairobi, and then rwanda. Says Lee: “This is not an easy place to get to. The costs really add up. But I have always looked forward to seeing these animals in person. So it is worth it to spend the time and money. I actually don’t understand why some people are so short-sighted and want to poach the elephants to harvest their ivory. I believe many people will be interested in getting in touch with nature and observing animals. If we use this as to advertise and develop tourism, we should be able to touch more people. On the other hand, if you kill the animals, you’ll get nothing in the end.”

對瑞士鐘錶業來說,石英,是夢魘。當年瑞士也有份 研製石英技術,結果險些連自己百年基業也毀掉。石 英錶令腕錶普及於世,而且不斷發展,最新的準繩度 可達每年誤差正負1秒,即一年只有眨一下眼的時間 誤差而已! The quartz movement caused nightmares for the Swiss watch industry. While the industry jumped on the bandwagon to research quartz technology in the early days, its cornerstone in mechanical watchmaking was badly shaken. And the quartz revolution is not letting up, as quartz timepieces are increasingly affordable and accuracy has improved to a negligible second per year.


當年搭載於Omega腕錶內的Beta 21石英機芯。 The Beta 21 quartz mechanism in old Omegas.

石英,化學方程式為SiO2(二氧化矽),是地球上數 量第二多的礦石。法國物理學家Pierre Curie在1880年發 覺,把石英水晶施加壓力,它便會產生電流脈衝,反之 亦然,如將電力加諸石英,它就會產生相當穩定而超高 的震動頻率。這個超高,是指每秒震動32,768次,是每 秒,比起傳統腕錶的擒縱擺輪每小時28,800次,差距是8 千至1萬倍。這個物理現象,稱為壓電效應(Piezoelectric Effect)。

精工把石英戴上手 瑞士早在1962年已開始研發石英機芯,Rolex、 Patek Philippe、Omega、IWC、JLC、Piaget等20 個品牌在Neuchatel成立了Swiss Centre Electronique Horloger(CEH)創建中心,同心協力研發效能更超卓的未 來機芯。4年後,採用8,192Hz石英電路板的Cal. Beta-1 機芯面世,到了1969年,錶迷不會陌生的Cal. Beta 21終 於誕生,首年生產的6,000枚機芯分給各大品牌使用。由 於體積較大、耗電驚人,加上售價不菲,所以在歐洲未 能普及起來。其後Rolex及Omega離開CEH,自家繼續研 製石英技術。 把石英技術發揚光大的,是日本精工。二戰後日本 成功爭取舉辦1964年東京奧運,當時精工受命為指定計 時,它的最大任務是把計時裝置全部石英化,而且要微 型化方便攜帶,結果半年後精工成功把計時器輕量化至 約3kg。1968年,精工第三代傳人服部正次下令:一年內 要把石英時計戴上手腕!結果上下員工再絞盡腦汁把零 件微型化,就在1969年12月25日,「Astron」石英腕錶誕 生了,它們研製的音叉狀石英震盪器、微型步進摩打、 最先進集成電路……揭開了全球鐘錶業大變天的序章。 日本石英錶由最初價值等於一部房車,十年八載間 普及到人人負擔得起。這段期間瑞士鐘錶業經歷了冰霜 浩劫,七十年代初期瑞士有超過1,600家鐘錶公司,近10 萬名從業員;到了八十年代中期,約1,000家廠房被逼結 業,超過三分二員工要轉行。而1980年日本因為大量生 產石英錶而成為全球第一大鐘錶生產國。

The quartz movement caused nightmares for the Swiss watch industry. While the industry jumped on the bandwagon to research quartz technology in the early days, its cornerstone in mechanical watchmaking was badly shaken. And the quartz revolution is not letting up, as quartz timepieces are increasingly affordable and accuracy has improved to a negligible ±1 second per year. Quartz is the chemical compound silicon dioxide (SiO2), the secondmost abundant mineral in the world. French physicist Pierre Curie found in 1880 that an electrical potential was generated when quartz crystals were compressed. In reverse, when the crystals were exposed to an electric field, they would produce steady high-frequency oscillation, at 32,768 vibrations per second, which was 8,000 to 10,000 times faster compared to 28,800 per hour of a conventional escapement. This is called the Piezoelectric Effect.

SEIkO PuT QuArTz InTO WrISTWATChES The Swiss watch industry began looking into quartz mechanisms in 1962, when 20 brands, among them rolex, Patek Philippe, Omega, IWC, JL and Piaget, set up Swiss Centre Electronique horloger (CEh) at neuchatel to research on higher performance mechanisms for the future. Four years later, Cal. Beta-1 using 8,192hz circuit was born. By 1969, Cal. Beta 21 that watch buffs are most familiar with was introduced. A total of 6,000 pieces were produced in the first year and shared among the brands. As the mechanism was rather large and the power consumption quite significant, and the price was relatively high, the watch didn’t gain traction in Europe. rolex and Omega left CEh subsequently but continued to research the quartz movement independently. It was Seiko that made quartz big. After World War II, Japan won the right to host the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo. Seiko was appointed the official time-keeper. Its mission was to use quartz-power, portable time-keeping devices exclusively. Within six months, Seiko managed to reduce the weight of its timers to 3 kg. On Christmas day of 1969, the quartz watch Astron was launched. The Y-shaped quartz oscillator, ultra-small stepping motor and advanced integrated circuit paved the way to overhaul the global watch industry. Within a decade or so, Japanese quartz watches had gone from costing as much as a car to becoming readily affordable by most. This brought on an ice age for the Swiss watch industry. In the early 1970s, there were in excess of 1,600 watchmaking companies employing nearly 100,000 workers in Switzerland. By the mid 1980s, about 1,000 companies were forced out and two-thirds of workers had to change careers as Japan became the world’s biggest watch-making nation thanks to mass production of quartz watches.

石英錶的特性

QuArTz WATCh ATTrIBuTES

石英錶的最大好處是準,還有輕巧、防磁、穩定、 保養容易、價錢相宜等優點。但缺點是欠缺人性及工藝 性,加上電池壽命有限、石英震動5至8年後會衰退,也 是石英表不能「一代傳一代」的致命傷。石英還有一個天 性弱點,就是較易受溫度影響。石英震動器在攝氏25度 表現最好,溫度上升會令它加快,反之則減慢;設計師 為了修正這問題,於是設計了溫度補償迴路,一旦溫度 有異便會發出訊號給IC電路作出更正,如此一來,石英 機芯的精準度又躍升約10倍,誤差率亦由月計提升為以 年作單位,超級石英機芯從而誕生。

Quartz watches prevail because they are accurate, light, anti-magnetic, stable, easy to maintain and relatively cheap. however, they lack character and artistry. Battery life will eventually run out, and the oscillation rate will deteriorate over five to eight years, making it difficult to pass them down the generations. The biggest shortcoming is that quartz is sensitive to temperatures. While a quartz oscillator can perform well at 25°C, higher temperatures will make it go faster, and vice versa. To tackle this issue, designers have added temperature compensation circuits, sending signals to the integrated circuit for correction when the temperature varies. This has boosted the precision rate of quartz watches by 10 times, and the variation rate is calculated based on months rather than years. Super quartz watches have become viable.

是如何做到一年誤差只有±1秒的機芯?這已經是石 英機芯的極限嗎? Citizen為慶祝誕生100周年而研製的Cal.0100光動 能機芯,成功登上全球最精準機芯。這要歸功於內裡一 個AT切割石英振盪器,它的震頻達到8,388,608Hz(是一 般機械機芯的1,600萬倍!),溫度穩定器令它能在-20° C 至60° C間發揮最佳狀態。充滿電後把它放在全黑環境, 機芯能運行至少半年時間。懷錶的設計意念源自品牌於 1924年推出的第一枚懷錶作品。可惜的是,這枚搭載只 厚2.92mm的Cal.0100光動能機芯的懷錶是非賣品,不過 Citizen已表明這項高精密技術將會應用於明年作品,因 為明年正正是石英錶誕生50周年紀念。

how to achieve a variation rate of ±1second per year? Is that the ultimate for quartz mechanisms? Citizen has introduced Cal.0100 Eco-Drive movement as the world’s most accurate quartz watch movement to mark its centenary, powered by an AT-cut quartz that vibrates at 8,388,608hzper second, 160 million times faster than regular mechanical calibres. The temperature stabilizer keeps it at optimal performance at ambient temperatures of -20°C to 60°C. When charged and left in a dark area, the movement can work for at least half a year. The pocket watch design was inspired by the brand’s first pocket watch in 1924. It’s a shame that this Cal.0100 Eco-Drive pocket watch measuring just 2.92 mm thick is not for sale. But Citizen promises this high-precision technology will be applied to the watches slated for next year to mark the 50th anniversary of quartz watches.

在Citizen眼中,最好的動力來源是「光」。兩年前適 值Eco-Drive光動能誕生40周年,品牌研發了全球最薄 的腕錶Eco-Drive One。它內搭的Cal. 8826石英機芯只 有1mm厚, ;連同錶殼也只不過厚2.98mm,有史無前例 的「輕」「薄」感。

Citizen believes that the best power source is light. Two years ago, when Eco-Drive marked its 40th anniversary, the brand successfully developed the world’s thinnest watch Eco-Drive One, powered by a 1mm thick quartz mechanism, Cal. 8826. The whole watch is no thicker than 2.98mm, and is rightfully the lightest and thinnest warmth thus far.

兩年前創下的纖薄紀錄,迄今無人能打破,只有它 在自我改良。這枚光動能機芯,無論吸取天然光或人造 光,一旦充滿電便能運行1年(初推出時只有10個月), 誤差率是每月±15秒。也由於機芯太薄太脆弱,所以直 徑37mm錶殼要特別保護,選用的材質是非一般堅硬防 刮的金屬陶瓷。今年品牌帶來限量1,000枚的特別版, 錶圈以Altic製成,是一種維氏硬度達1900HV的超硬物 料。約售8,400元。

This record hasn’t yet been broken, while the watch continues to outdo itself. Once fully charged by exposing to natural light or artificial lighting, it can run for a year (an improvement from 10 months when it was first introduced). The variation rate is ±15 seconds per month. As the calibre is too thin and too fragile, the 37mm watch case needs to be really solid, hence ultra-hard and scratch-proof metal ceramics are used. This year, the brand has launched a limited edition of 1,000 pieces. The bezel is made of Altic, a super hard material measuring up to 1900hv. (Price approx. $8,400)

TimeworThy LOngInES COnQuEST v.h.P. 開宗明義以V.H.P—Very High Precision為名,皆因腕錶 的精準度達每年誤差±5秒!

The watch boasts a variation rate of just ±5 seconds per year, hence the named v.h.P (very high Precision).

Longines早在上年紀五十年代已推出首枚石英鐘,服務 於沙泰爾天文台。1969年品牌有份參與研發石英機芯,到了 1984年,首枚Conquest V.H.P.也誕生了。

Longines had embarked on making quartz watches since the 1950s for the Chatel Observatory. It was involved in quartz mechanism research in 1969. The first Conquest v.h.P. was unveiled in 1984.

去年重生的Conquest V.H.P.功能及性能皆大躍進,精準 度驚人,內裡的GPD(齒輪位置檢測)系統相當厲害,一旦腕 錶受到嚴重衝擊或磁場干擾,指針便會停頓,待不良影響消失 後,系統才會把刻下時間資訊傳給指針,讓它們「重回正軌」。 除了大三針,Conquest V.H.P.也新增了計時款,3時位置是30 分鐘累計、9時位置是12小時累計,6時位置是小秒針;值得一 提的是,雖然不設星期、月份、閏年顯示,但腕錶其實是一枚 萬年曆,日期窗的顯示直到公元2400年也不用調校。腕錶款式 繁多,錶盤有藍色、碳灰色、銀色或黑色選擇,亦可配襯精鋼 鏈帶、黑色PVD錶帶、藍色或黑色橡膠錶帶。約售$2,300。

The Conquest v.h.P. reprised last year was vastly improved in functions, performance and accuracy. The gPD system is astonishing. When the watch is exposed to trauma or magnetism, the hands will stop. When the adverse conditions are over, the system transmits time information to the hands and send them back to the right time. Other than a three-hand model, Conquest v.h.P. has added a chronograph, with a 30-minute counter at 3 o’clock, 12-hour counter at 9 o’clock and a small second at 6 o’clock. It’s worth noting that while it doesn’t show week, month or leap year, the watch is a genuine perpetual calendar. The date window automatically indicates the right date up to the year 2400. It comes in a range of style, with dials in blue, grey, silver or black, in steel bracelet, black PvC straps or blue or black rubber straps. (Price approx. $2,300)

優雅簡約主義 Dramatic minimalism It’s all in the Zen

Story | Livian Wu Photography | Ema Peter

簡約主義的最大的挑戰就是要做到「每 樣物件均必須是最愛的」,同時亦有其存在 目的。去掉五花八門的擺設雜物,只保留 最必要的部分,力求精簡。 設計師Sahra Samnani以簡約主義, 配合乾淨俐落的線條主理溫哥華兩所房屋 的設計,實踐如何以精簡而又優質的生活 方式達到內心的安寧與富足。

The biggest challenge with minimalism is getting straight to the point with “musthaves” yet ensuring that all elements are streamlined and functional. And that is exactly what designer Sahra Samnani did for two Vancouver homes. The goal was clean and simple patterns in order to achieve a calm and content living style.


簡化布局就能突出空 間本身的質感,給人 開揚、明快的感覺。 The space exudes an expansive feel.

將「簡單就是美」這簡約主義要旨套用到 設計美學的,表表者正是著名建築師Ludwig Mies van der Rohe。二次世界大戰之後,美國 社會傾向回歸平和節約,連帶設計和建築風格 也受影響。Rohe主張摒棄浪費浮誇的樣式,無 論是視覺或實際用途方面均力主簡約和講求功 能性時。當然,把簡約主義發揮得好,也不是 容易的事。 位於溫哥華Kits Point的這所房屋,就是利 用極簡潔的線條達到高效能的設計概念。加上 結合建築的採光優勢—巨大的窗戶、天幕以及 玻璃門把自然光引進屋內,使空間更為寬敞明 亮。 連接二樓的樓梯也是精萃所在。運用富自 然感的白花紋花旗松木地板,輕巧的質地配以 延伸的長線條,散發出原始的氣息。再加上明 亮的白色牆身及隱藏的燈光效果,讓空間散發 活力和朝氣。 雖說是簡約,空間也不會空蕩得只見白 牆。如廚房的設計就選用了黑色檯面,營造出 安靜柔和的氛圍。廚櫃則延伸至天花,大大增 加存放空間。

去掉不必要的物件, 只保留最需要的,以 求達到最佳平衡。 Maintaining only the essential achieves the ultimate balance of minimalism.

House: Kits Point this house leverages extremely simple designs and concepts. the end result is a living space that feels expansive with the use of skylights, massive windows and glass doors. We’ve all heard the adage "less is more". And that mantra, adopted by famed architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe, couldn’t ring more true when it comes to minimalism. the design movement began in post WWii American art before being translated into design and architecture in response to the chaos of urban life. According to Wikipedia, Van de Rohe’s idea was to create an impression of extreme simplicity whereby every element and detail would serve multiple visual and functional purposes. For example, designing a floor to also serve as the radiator. But achieving that simple uncomplicated concept isn’t all that easy. the stairs leading to the second floor are an unmistakable focal point. the use of lightcoloured pine hardwood flooring combined with long wood trim produces a relaxing calm with an air of nature. A huge white wall and hidden lighting makes the space exude with energy and vitality.

屋外的花園景觀同樣採簡約 設計原則。 One of the fundamental principles of modern design is simply, simplicity.

廚房使用白色作為主 色,適當加以深色的 傢俬,也與電器的亮 面質感互相呼應。 The mainly white kitchen is sharply contrasted with a dark countertop and glossy appliances.

But maintaining the minimal theme doesn’t have to mean boring. A two-tone kitchen with a black countertop generates drama on a mega scale, with practical cabinets extending all the way to the ceiling for plenty of storage.

the owner expressed his passion for art by displaying his collection like a gallery at the main entrance and dining room. Maintaining minimalism means avoiding décor or artwork with complicated patterns and textures.

空間的顏色以淺色調為主,同樣利用自 然光線帶出簡約主義的美學。廚房設計運用 大量白色人造石,線條簡單整潔,是現代高 端廚房的元素。

Large quantities of white artificial stones were used to achieve a neutral colour palette in the kitchen with samnani leveraging natural light and simple patterns to create a high-end modern cooking space.

最具英國味的紐西蘭酒莊

Not so odd but true New Zealand wine made by an Englishman is not as weird as you might think Story | Ivan Wong

2018


喝著英國人在紐西蘭釀的葡萄酒,想到的是「自我感覺良 好」這六字真言。 Sam Weaver是英國人,家鄉在我們不太認識的西中部小鎮 Church Pulverbatch,當地人稱之為Churton,Sam亦以此給他 在紐西蘭的酒莊命名,Churton亦算是我們所認識的、最具英國 味的紐西蘭Marlborough酒莊。 雖然釀酒前曾在倫敦經營葡萄酒貿易多年,Sam直到今天 仍以農夫自居,1992年尋得在Waihopai與Omaka山谷間、面向 東北的200米小高原開創酒莊,全是家族遺傳的農夫天賦使然。 整個Marlborough地區都在釀造Sauvignon Blanc及Pinot Noir,有些也如Sam Weaver般採全天然Biodynamic釀製,但 Churton的Sauvignon Blanc與Pinot Noir像是有點不一樣的味 兒,前者的熱帶水果味沒那麼熱帶,後者的皮革味又沒那麼皮革 呢!或許正如他那深入淺出的細意分析:普遍Marlborough酒莊 葡萄球園都位處平原,鮮見在200米之上,加上Churton面向東 北所汲取的陽光較為含蓄,形成不慍不火,恰到好處的特質。

Sam Weaver is an Englishman from Church Pulverbatch, an obscure town of only 400 people in the country’s mid-west. The locals call it Churton and Weaver has adopted that name for his vineyard in New Zealand’s Marlborough region. Weaver was involved in wine trading for years before embarking on a career in winemaking, although he prefers to be known as a wine-grower. With the farming instincts he inherited from his ancestors, Weaver established his vineyard on a northeast-facing plateau he discovered in the valley between Waihopai and Omaka. Weaver says that by facing northeast, the sunlight is more demure, giving Churton wines a milder and more balanced essence. All wine-growers in Marlborough produce Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, and some even use the same biodynamic method as Weaver. But the Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir from Churton are a tad different. Its sauv blanc has a subtler tropical fruitiness, while the Pinot has a more muted hint of leather.

原產自法國南部的冷門葡萄Petit Manseng, 去到紐西蘭頓變成罕有品種,由英國人釀出來 的更是新世界甜酒中的異數;Churton的Pinot Noir跟其他Marlborough Pinot Noir相比,當中 的李子味比李子更李子,但皮革味又沒那麼皮 革。 (Opposite page) Marlborough Pinot Noir; the Petit Manseng, an uncommon grape species originally from southern France, is a rare varietal in New Zealand and sets itself apart among the sweeter New World wines in the hands of these Englishmen.

Churton總面積50公頃,只有22公頃為葡萄園,其餘的都是留給大自然及用作畜牧。 Churton measures 50 hectares, but only 22 are used for growing grapes. The rest is left to nature or livestock.

太平洋鱈魚口感軟滑,配合以法國masala咖喱製成的牛油、醃製酒杯蘑菇、花椰菜 苗及紅脈酸模菜,令層次更豐富。 Supple and gorgeous on the palate, alobar’s pacific cod is finished with smoked vadouvan (French masala curry spice) butter and pickled chanterelles, broccolini florets and red vein sorrel.

廚師把24安士USDA肉眼扒 (先濕陳60日,然在在店內乾陳) 放在Josper燒炭烤爐烤製,並伴以烤香啡菇及濃汁。可沾上 青番茄墨西哥辣椒醬及aerated béarnaise醬一同享用。 The 24 oz. USDA Ribeye (wet-aged 60 days, then dry aged in house) is grilled on the Josper charcoal oven with cremini mushrooms and finished with jus. Served with jalapenogreen tomato-tomatillo hot sauce and aerated béarnaise.

Alobar Yorkville 挾著Alo的聲勢,老闆兼廚師Patrick Kriss選址 Cumberland街及Yorkville大道之間的一個小庭園,開設 Alobar Yorkville。位於Spadina的Alo剛於2018年全球最佳50 間餐廳名單中名列94。(註:雖然被稱為全球最佳50間餐廳, 但實際名單共列出最佳的100間餐廳) Kriss表示:「Alobar跟 Alo一樣為食客帶來精采美食、優質食材及熱鬧的氛圍,唯一 的區別是Alobar提供更多適合共享的美食。」 走進餐廳,總經理Tracey Wilson為我們介紹室內裝潢, 原來室內設計由Commute Design打造,劃分為3個小區:為 沒預約客人而設的長吧檯;主餐房飾以半圓形廂座及一個半 私人的凹入式餐室;以及前方的休閒酒廊。昏暗的色調及充 滿質感的元素是餐廳的風格,室內可容納50人,室外的patio 則可容納25人。 廚師長Matthew Betsch及副廚師長Rebekah Bruce採用 最優質的食材設計餐單。除了新鮮海鮮及生肉crudos外,店 內亦提供時令配菜,包括炭燒San Marzano番茄沙律配意大 利青醬、酸麵包脆粒、松子、羅勒及黑醋。廚房配備一台於 西班牙製造的Josper燒炭烤爐,餐廳的烤魚及熟成牛扒都於 此烤爐烹製。店內一系列自家製麵包則出自糕餅廚師Kevin Jeung的手筆,他更為Yorkville這家新店烘焙了只此一家的 Parker House roll小麵包。當然不能不提各款精美甜點如拿破 崙蛋糕、還有內軟外脆的巴斯克芝士蛋糕配草莓果醬,實在 叫人無法抗拒。 餐飲方面,Pat Groves為食客帶來豐富的雞尾酒選 擇,而餐酒總監同時亦是Midfield餐酒吧創辦人之一的 Christopher Sealy,則從世界各地的頂級釀酒商搜羅佳釀, 包括南澳Henschke酒莊的紅酒以至Riojas產區的magnum 酒,酒吧亦展示了來自希臘、波爾多及勃艮第的美酒及高濃 度烈酒。

Tucked in a courtyard between Cumberland Street and Yorkville Avenue, chef-owner Patrick Kriss’ latest outpost comes on the tails of Alo ranking no. 94 on the 2018 edition of The World’s 50 Best Restaurants list (The list is so called “The World’s 50 Best” but they list numbers 1 to 100. https://www. theworlds50best.com/list/1-50-winners#t51-100.) Taking the concept from Spadina’s bar extension of Alo and expanding it to Yorkville, Kriss explains that Alobar has “the same ambition [as the bar at Alo] – great food, ingredients, delicious food and a fun environment – but different like sharable plates.” Once inside, GM Tracey Wilson guides you through the slick Commute Design interior’s three distinct pockets of activity: a long bar for walk-in patrons; a dining room with curved booths and a semi-private leatherupholstered alcove; and a relaxed lounge in the front. Dark with heavy elements, indoor find seats for 50 divided among banquettes with an additional 25 on the patio during warmer weather. Chef de cuisine Matthew Betsch and sous chef Rebekah Bruce have put together a delicious a la carte menu using the best quality ingredients. Besides pristine seafood and meat crudos, refined seasonal sides like a gorgeous and meaty charred San Marzano tomato salad that’s topped with pesto, sourdough croutons, pine nut, basil and balsamic, there’s fish, aged chops prepared on a Spanish-made and charcoal-powered Josper oven and grill. Pastry chef Kevin Jeung is behind the group’s signature line of homemade bread, creating a version of Parker House rolls just for the Yorkville space and a lineup of show stopping desserts like an ethereal mille-feuille or a silky Basque-style cheesecake that has a semi-set centre, dark caramelized sugar crust and served with a chunky fresh strawberry jam. Completing the trifecta, Alobar’s beverage list focuses on elegant and balanced cocktails by Pat Groves, and world-class wines from classic and benchmark producers that are selected by wine director – and Midfield Wine Bar co-founder – Christopher Sealy. Expect to find a rich collection of reds from South Australia’s Henschke to magnums of Riojas, in addition to numbers from Greek, Bordeaux and Burgundy proudly on display behind the bar along with premium spirits.

Named after the Japanese God of the hearth, Momofuku’s latest concept focuses on cooking with fire. Led by executive chef Paula Navarrete, Kōjin takes over the brand’s former Daishō and Shōtō spaces on the top floor of the glass cube on University Avenue. The modern Toronto steakhouse menu nods to Latin American, in particular Colombia where Navarrete grew up, while embracing seasonal Ontario ingredients. Potatoes take the spotlight, showcased in six forms including creamy, lightly blistered aged Gouda and cheese curd-laced Titas Mash based on Navarrete’s grandmother’s recipe. Instead of noodles or bings, there’s fluffy and crisp griddled K2 Mills cornmeal and hominy flatbreads that can be paired with a number of starters and sides. At lunch, find sandwiches using homemade bread that might be wrapped around homemade sausages developed with in-house butcher Derek Easton; at dinner, there’s also a serious cold seafood program that ranges from crudos, platters brimming with fresh catch, or a creative sturgeon caviar egg crepe cake. But the star is the bounty of meat, including prime cuts like Magee Farms’ Hereford-Angus cross beef that has been pasture-raised and barley-finished—proudly displayed in the dry aging fridge—that’s prepared over a binchotan charcoal grill. Larger format roasts or surf ‘n’ turf platters are available by inquiry.

Kōjin的14安士PEI去骨肉眼扒,經35日熟成並以燒木烤爐烤製,最後放上炭燒青辣椒。配以三種自家製醬汁:烤辣椒醬、骨髓牛油及A1牛扒醬。 A charred green chili tops Kōjin’s wood-fire grilled, 14-oz. boneless PEI ribeye that’s been dry aged 35 days. Flavourful and supple, the beef is seasoned with Montreal steak spice and comes with three homemade sauces: hot sauce using grilled chilies, bone marrow butter and a version of the A1 steak sauce.

Choose from among 90 seats spread across curved oxblood leather banquettes under the wine cellar, low-back Catenary stools flushed against the white quartzite topped and glazed terracotta bar or Token Tea chairs.

比賽題目由大會決定,指定肉類食材已於9月份公布:5件相 連的優質小牛肉排架。魚類選材則於十月底才宣布。 Ritchie表示:「得知食材為小牛肉時我們特別興奮。這是我們 熟悉的食材,無論在味道及擺碟方面都有很多創作空間。Bocuse d’ Or是要挑戰如何把經典食材重新詮釋,炮製出創意新派菜。我們 的團隊正在構思把本土味道融入比賽菜式當中。」 每個參賽國家都會有一位代表加入評審團。評分準則為味道 及賣相兩方面,每道菜最高可在味道方面得40分,賣相得20分。 分數相同的話,評審可在衛生及整潔方面另加最高20分。整體分 數最高者便可勝出。此外,大會亦會頒發最佳魚類菜式、最佳肉 類菜式、最有國家本土特色獎、最佳助手及最佳海報獎項。

親赴里昂為國家隊打氣 如能在里昂的決賽中獲勝,不但讓新晉廚師揚名立萬,更可 提升加國在國際烹飪界的地位。Ritchie說:「當我們在墨西哥比 賽時,感到現場粉絲支持的重要性。自比賽於1987年創立以來,

The meat ingredient was announced in September: a suckling fiverib rack of veal. The fish ingredient was to be revealed in late october. “We were thrilled to hear that we’d be cooking with veal,” says ritchie. “It’s a product that we’re familiar with that offers a multitude of possibilities in terms of innovation in taste and presentation. “The challenge given by the Bocuse d’or is to reinterpret the classics into modern dishes. The team and I are already working on some ideas to incorporate our local flavours into our final dish for the competition.”

JoIn The Team In lYon a win in lyon could mean building a legacy for up-and-coming chefs and raising Canada’s international culinary standing. “The support of our fans made a big difference in mexico,” ritchie says. “no Canadian chef has ever brought home the gold and we have only made the top five twice since 1987. The team and I want to change that in January. We hope to have a delegation of at least 100 supporters, so we can demonstrate the best Canada has to offer in and out of the kitchen.”


這道是加拿大隊於Bocuse d’ Or準決賽中 「大型拼盤」 環節的參賽菜式。材料包括乳 豬蜜棗肉醫、烤豬腩肉伴血腸及小紅莓甜酸醬、煨婆羅門參、羊肚菌奶油蛋卷、 魁北克鵝肝小餡餅配McIntosh蘋果、紅莓楓葉及Neige蘋果酒。

於滑鐵盧市出生的Trevor Ritchie要過關斬將才獲得代表加國出賽的機會。首 先,他設計的菜單、履歷表及推薦信必須獲專業評審團一致通過;更要在競 爭激烈的烹飪比賽中擊敗眾多同樣優秀的對手。

Team Canada’s “theme on platter” at the Bocuse d’Or continental semifinals featured suckling pig terrine with dates and walnuts, roast belly pressé with boudin noir and cranberry chutney, braised salsify root, morel cream with trumpet farce and brioche, and Quebec foie gras tartelette with McIntosh apple, berry maple leaves and Neige ice cider jus.

Waterloo, Ont.-born chef Trevor Ritchie underwent an intensive selection process before earning the right to represent Canada. First, his recipes, résumé and letters of reference had to pass review by a panel of professional judges. Then he had to outshine other top candidates at an intense cook-off.

加拿大從來沒有贏過金獎,只是兩度入圍五強。我們的目標是 在明年1月的決賽獲取零的突破。希望屆時最少有100位支持者 去到現場打氣,讓我們在廚房內外,同心展現加國最美好的一 面。」 一連兩天的比賽將於明年1月29及30日於里昂的Eurexpo舉 行。加拿大隊為有興趣親身參與的粉絲們提供兩種套票選擇:5 天全包行程($3,000)及比賽門票($120)。 全包行程包括由溫哥華、多倫多或滿地可前往里昂的機 票、住宿4星級酒店hôtel lyon metropole、參觀酒莊Côte rôtie 及 Châteauneuf-du-Pape 、觀光船晚餐及於Brasserie Lyon Plage享用由廚師Georges Desriaux親自主理的傳統里昂晚宴。 亦包括往返比賽場地的接送服務。 喜歡自由行的食家們則可選擇第二種套票,包括2天比賽的 門票、一件紀念T恤以及參加在Comptoir de l’ Est舉行的賽後派 對(食物及酒水全包),與加拿大隊一同慶功。

安坐家中享受國家級美食體驗 想安坐家中享用加國烹飪隊炮製的美食,只需付出每位 $200(最少10人,最多20人),Ritchie及他的團隊便會上門為你 炮製9道菜的晚餐,你只需要佈置餐桌便可。現已開始接受節日 預訂,所有收益將直接用於資助團隊前往里昂比賽的旅費。

The two-day competition takes place January 29 to 30 at eurexpo in lyon, France.

操一口倫敦東區口音,有30年駕駛經驗的計程車司機,一邊以 充滿警覺性的高速於倫敦的橫街窄巷中疾馳穿梭,一邊以米高堅般 的沉厚聲音為Savoy Hotel大賣廣告:「你以前有否住過Savoy?這是 我最喜歡的酒店之一。」數分鐘之後,計程車抵達倫敦著名劇院區的 The Strand大街,眼前就是The Savoy酒店的地標式遮篷。司機收錢 時不忘說:「酒店會為你提供帝皇式的享受。」 數名穿著長褸並戴著高禮帽的男服務員為我運送行李,我跟著 另一名員工穿過充滿Art Deco風格的大堂,走到仍保留愛德華時代 設計特色的前檯,驟看還以為自己身處附近的白金漢宮。辦理入住 手續時,我雙眼被豪華的裝飾所吸引,水晶吊燈、真跡名畫及華麗 的牆飾,就像是電視劇《唐頓莊園》的模樣。

The Cockney cabbie taking me to the swank Savoy Hotel speeds through the narrow back streets of the British capital like the getaway man in a bank robbery. “Have you ever stayed at the Savoy?,” he asks in an accent pure Michael Caine. “It’s one of my favourite hotels in London,” says the 30-year taxi veteran, looking like he might make some unsuspecting pedestrian a hood ornament at any moment. A few minutes later, the cab pulls off The Strand in London’s famed Theatre District and The Savoy’s landmark marquee comes into view.? “They’ll treat you like a king here, sir,” says the cabbie, who snatches the fare and speeds away. Men in top hats and long coats relieve me of my luggage and a member of staff whisks me through the Art Deco lobby and into an Edwardian-era reception room that looks like it belongs in nearby Buckingham Palace. As the nattily-attired young woman retrieves my info, I marvel at the room’s plush décor: crystal chandeliers, original artwork and rich wall coverings make it look like a set on Downton Abbey.

辦妥入住手續後,服務員把我的管家叫來。管家??「你將會 入住可望到泰晤士河的河景套房,當中包括了管家服務。」穿著整 齊燕尾禮服、高大有型的Richard便是我的管家。氣派非凡的Savoy 最注重服務質素,因此對員工要求非常嚴格,每位管家都要在酒店 的學院The Savoy Academy接受總管家Sean Davoren訓練。管家 的職責是24小時隨時候命,滿足客人的所有要求,如預約晚餐、購 買劇場門票、安排購物及觀光行程等。操一口英國上流社會口音的 Richard問道:「先生,不如讓我為你整理好行李。」他的服務水準相 信連《唐頓莊園》中的總管家Carson也不會有所挑剔。 我趁空欣賞窗外景致,泰晤士河、有倫敦眼之稱的摩天輪、大 笨鐘、國會大樓、倫敦大橋及林立的高樓大廈,幾乎所有地標都盡 在眼前。話說,當年名畫家莫奈及James Whistler入住Savoy酒店 時,正正因為泰晤士河的旖旎風光,為他們帶來靈感創作了多幅名 作。Savoy這座雅致的維多利亞式建築是1889年開業的酒店,亦是 泰晤士河唯一的五星級酒店,當時說得上是全城哄動,因為它是倫 敦首間酒店設有電燈以及冷、熱自來水,這些設施於19世紀的英國 絕對是奢華享受。

Check-in complete, the attendant summons my butler. Butler!?? “You’ll be staying in one of our River View Suites (they overlook the Thames) and it comes with a butler,” says the attendant, who introduces me to Richard, a tall, handsome man decked out in top coat and tails. He looks like he belongs on top of a wedding cake. With service being paramount at the palatial Savoy, the hotel has some very high standards and trains its own butler staff in The Savoy Academy under the watchful eye of head butler Sean Davoren. They are at your beck and call, 24 hours a day, and arrange dinner reservations, theatre tickets, shopping outings and travel plans for guests. “May I unpack your bag, sir,” asks Richard in an upper-class English accent that would even impress Downton Abbey’s head butler Carson. As Richard empties my luggage, I’m left awestruck by the view from my window: The Thames, London Eye, Big Ben, the Houses of Parliament, iconic bridges and a forest of modern skyscrapers. Talk about a room with a view. This view of the Thames is what inspired Claude Monet and James Whistler to paint some of their most famous works while staying at The Savoy. There’s only one problem: I can’t see the lovely Victorian building that houses the historic Savoy, the only five-star hotel on the Thames, which opened in 1889. It became an instant attraction back then because it was the first London hotel to offer electric lights, and hot and cold running water, modern luxuries back in 19th century Britain.


Savoy酒店時常被稱為「倫敦最著名的酒店」,首任經理是後來 創辦Ritz酒店的César Ritz,它現時由加國Fairmont酒店集團管理, 亦是巴黎Accor酒店品牌的成員之一。Fairmont於2010年耗資400 萬翻新酒店,帶來煥然新貌。Savoy的悠久歷史吸引了不少國家元 首及貴族垂青。亦因其位處劇院區,不少前來倫敦表演的影星及舞 台劇演員均喜歡入住,星級貴賓名單包括Coco Chanel、堪富利保 加、法蘭仙納杜拉、羅蘭士奧莉花、瑪麗蓮夢露、諾爾克華德及 瑪麗亞卡拉絲等。環境優美的Thames Foyer掛了不少普普藝術畫 作,餐廳中央的大籠子亦十分吸睛。樓梯位置亦掛了紅星如卜合、 威廉荷頓及阿娃嘉娜的親筆簽名相,沿樓梯可通往傳奇的American Bar。酒店對開更有一間小小的博物館,展出酒店百多年的光輝點 滴。 不過要數酒店名氣最大的客人,則非前英國首相邱吉爾莫屬。 二次大戰期間,納粹德軍向英國投下炸彈之際,他仍可處之泰然地 跟一眾內閣成員在Savoy用餐。酒店有9間「個人化特色套房」,以 曾入住該房間的明星或政客來命名,就連房間佈置及擺設亦盡量仿 照他們入住時的模樣。就好像瑪蓮德烈治於酒店作客時,曾要求在 房間擺放12朵粉紅色玫瑰花,因此以她命名的套房同樣放有12朵 粉紅色玫瑰花。這9間套房吸引客人爭相預訂,十分搶手。時至今 日,Savoy同樣星光熠熠,於酒店的餐廳(7間餐廳中以Savoy Grill及 Kaspars最具人氣)用膳不時會見到明星,他們亦喜歡於American 或Beaufort酒吧流連,後者位於Thames Foyer及Kaspars之間,充 滿Art Deco風格。

酒店前台位置氣派不凡,差點以 為自己身處白金漢宮。 The reception area at the famed Savoy looks like it belongs in nearby Buckingham Palace, where the Queen resides.

Often called “London’s most famous hotel” whose first manager was César Ritz, of the Ritz Hotel fame, the Savoy is now under the loving care and management of Canada’s Fairmont Hotels and Resorts and part of the Paris-based Accor Hotels brand. Fairmont oversaw a $400-million renovation of the Grand Dame in 2010 and The Savoy has never looked better. Through its long and distinguished history, The Savoy has been the address of many visiting heads of state and foreign royalty. And because of its location in the Theatre District, stars of screen and stage have called the hotel home when performing in London. Coco Chanel, Humphrey Bogart, Frank Sinatra, Laurence Olivier, Marilyn Monroe, Noël Coward and Maria Callas are just a few of the celebrities who have slept here. Some are immortalized in pop-art paintings that hang in the lovely Thames Foyer, where an elaborate gazebo draws lots of attention. Autographed pictures of others—Bob Hope, William Holden and Ava Gardner, among them—line the staircase leading to the hotel’s fabled American Bar. There’s also a small museum opposite the bar that contains many historical items related to The Savoy’s golden era. The hotel’s most famous guest, of course, was Sir Winston Churchill, Britain’s wartime leader who would defiantly dine at The Savoy with his cabinet while Nazi bombs rained down on London. Nine “personality suites” named in honour of the stars and politicians who stayed in them are always in high demand, and are decorated with artwork, photography and artifacts from the time when they were in residence. For instance, the Marlene Dietrich Suite comes with 12 pink roses, just like the ones the sultry actress requested when she was a guest. The stars of today are often seen eating at one of the hotel’s outstanding dining rooms (Savoy Grill and Kaspars at The Savoy being the most famous of the property’s seven restaurants) or hanging out at the American or Beaufort bars, the latter an Art Deco masterpiece located between the Thames Foyer and Kaspars.

The Savoy Grill, with its polished oak walls and Art Deco fixtures, is managed by celebrity chef Gordon Ramsey’s company and the one star Michelin room never fails to impress with its haute cuisine, service and seductive ambience. My Cornish crab salad starter was followed by a Steak Diane that was expertly prepared at my table in a flaming copper skillet. The Savoy Grill is open for lunch and dinner and its daily carving board specials is a magnet for many Londoners. Equally impressive is Kaspars at The Savoy, which specializes in British seafood dishes. Oysters so fresh you can taste the sea with every slurp, and freshly caught Scottish salmon are just some of the items that make Kaspars the most famous seafood restaurant in London. Oh, and did I mention Kaspar’s cat? One of the most intriguing legends connected to The Savoy is Kaspar the Cat and the number 13. The story goes: a prominent guest was holding a dinner party for 14 friends back in 1898 but one failed to show up. Another superstitious guest predicted that should one of the 13 remaining leave before dinner ended, tragedy would befall them. A South African guest took up the challenge and left early. A few weeks later he was shot and killed in Johannesburg. Since that day, any time the hotel hosts parties for 13 guests, which is quite often, Kasper the Cat, complete with napkin, is trotted out and given a seat to make sure there is no unlucky 13th guest sitting at the table.


The Savoy擁有267間客房及套房,佈置充滿愛德華時代設計 特色或Art Deco風格,同時提供各種現代化設備。我入住的河景套 房洋溢英倫魅力,柔和色調跟手繪牆飾及布藝和諧結合,為房間營 造家的溫暖感覺。設計師Pierre Yves Rochon利用古董擺設把部分 套房重修至愛德華年代的裝潢,讓客人在歷史懷抱中入睡。另一邊 廂,房間入口及浴室鋪上黑白色格子瓷磚,向酒店的Art Deco風格 致敬。他把兩種截然不同的設計特色完美融合,效果令人讚嘆。翻 新後的The Savoy搖身一變成為倫敦最佳酒店,雖然工程比預期延 遲了18個月,亦超支了200萬,但所花的每一分毫都絕對值得。酒 店翻新後更增加了一個全新水療中心、健身中心及室內泳池,水準 在倫敦五星級酒店中更是數一數二。 相比起倫敦其他高級酒店,The Savoy 最突出的地方是其貼心 周到的服務,當中把守酒店正門的門房員工猶為重要。已有30年經 驗的Tony Harvey是酒店其中一名年資最長的員工,他說過:「門房 這個崗位可稱為linkman,把外面的世界與酒店聯繫起來,doorman 這個名稱則令人覺得我們是俱樂部門外的守衛。」 由名店區Knightsbridge及Mayfair坐計程車很快便可抵達The Savoy,酒店周圍坐落了包括Covent Gardens等著名劇場。從酒店 一路走可到達Trafalgar Square及Pal Mal,甚至白金漢宮。鄰近的 滑鐵盧橋可通往泰晤士河的兩岸。 充滿歷史傳奇的The Savoy,是倫敦最閃耀、最受注目的酒店。

The Savoy’s magnificent collection of 267 rooms and suites are decorated in either Edwardian or Art Deco styles and stuffed with modern amenities. My River View Suite oozed with British charm in soft pastel tones that blend seamlessly with hand-painted wall coverings and fabrics that wrap the suite in a warm, homey feel. Designer Pierre Yves Rochon utilized lots of antique furnishings in the Edwardian suites to remind guests they are sleeping with history. However, he also uses black and white checkered tiles at the entrances and bathrooms of every Savoy room as a nod to the hotel’s Art Deco roots. The combination works amazingly well. Not a dime was spared turning The Savoy into London’s best hotel. No wonder the renovation was almost 18 months late and more than $200 million over budget. A new spa, gym and indoor pool were also added during the renovations and each qualifies as the finest among London’s all-star cast of five-star hotel properties. Service is what sets The Savoy apart from London’s other luxury properties, and it all starts with the hearty welcome guests get from the doormen who guard the entrance. Doorman Tony Harvey is one of the longest serving members of staff, a 30-year veteran, and is actually referred to as a “linkman” because “we link the outside world to the hotel. Doorman makes it sound like we are bouncers at a club,” he once told a reporter. The Savoy is a quick cab ride away from the high-end shops of Knightsbridge and Mayfair and surrounded by some of the most famous of London’s theatres, including Covent Gardens. Trafalgar Square and Pal Mal, which leads to Buckingham Palace, are just down the street, and neighbouring Waterloo Bridge links the left and right banks of the Thames. The spotlight is clearly on The Savoy these days because the legendary property is indeed the all-star of London’s hotel scene. For more information, visit www.toureast.com.

凌志過去憑藉LS與全球頂級的豪華轎車展開激烈競爭,雄 心壯志進軍世界市場。但近年LS的銷量有所下降,而德國的豪 華轎車如奧迪A8、平治S-Class和寶馬7系等則重奪它們的市場 份額。 為此,凌志重新設計2018年款的LS,增添了更多的魅力和 驚喜,令近期平淡的市場牽起了驚艷讚歎之聲。 2018年款的LS標誌著凌志邁進第五代,提供更佳的靈活性 和舒適性這兩個豪華汽車必備的條件。 我們有幸試駕採用全混合動力系統的LS 500h。這車配備一 台3.5公升V6汽油引擎和兩個電動馬達,混合使用時會產生354 匹馬力,凌志稱之為多級混合動力系統。 如果不喜歡混能車的話,可以選擇有415匹馬力的雙渦輪增 壓V6引擎。有趣的是,LS不像歐洲對手般有V8引擎供選擇。 我們所試駕的LS 500h添加了行政套件(Executive Package),功能多到難以盡錄。其中最值得注意的是電熱 盤、氣壓懸掛系統、20吋合金輪轂、有制熱和制冷功能的真皮 按摩座椅,28向電動調節的司機及前排乘客座椅,甚至後排座 椅也可前後移動和向後仰,只需按一下按鈕即可伸展成為睡椅。

The Lexus LS was a sales leader in Canada and the U.S. when it debuted nearly three decades ago, ready to take on the world and compete head to head with the best luxury sedans around. But in recent years, sales of the LS have slid somewhat and German rivals — like the Audi A8, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7 series — have regained significant market share. So, with a redesign of the LS for 2018, Lexus has added more pizzazz and excitement to the car, bringing in a bit of the ‘wow’ factor that may have been lacking in recent years. The 2018 model marks the start of the fifth generation of the LS, sitting on Lexus’s new ultra-rigid global luxury platform that offers better agility and comfort — two of the benchmarks of a luxury automobile. We were fortunate to test the LS 500h that offers a full hybrid powertrain, featuring a 3.5-litre V6 gasoline engine combined with two electric motors. In combination, they produce 354 horsepower. Lexus calls this its Multi Stage Hybrid System. For those who don’t want to go the hybrid route, the other engine choice is a twin-turbo V6, generating 415 horsepower. Interestingly, unlike most of the European competition, there is no V8 engine available.

Our LS 500h came with the Executive Package that includes a list of features longer than your arm. Most notable are a heated steering wheel, air suspension, 20-inch alloy wheels, heated and cooled aniline leather massage seats, a 28-way adjustable power driver’s and front passenger’s seat, and even a rear seat that moves fore and aft and reclines with an extendable ottoman at the touch of a button. As mentioned earlier, the redesigned LS has a much more eyecatching look. The love-it-or-hate-it Lexus signature spindle grille works on this model, in my opinion. From the side, the sleek silhouette has a coupe-like appearance that belies the spaciousness inside. The front look is aggressive and planted, with a grille that’s flanked by triple LED headlamps, along with LED daytime running lights. LED tail-lamps light up the back. The LS 500h marks the first use of the new multi-stage hybrid powertrain, designed specifically for high-performance luxury automobiles. Lexus is the world leader in hybrid technology and this new system takes a leap forward, combining a 5.5-second, 0-100 km/h sprint time with class-leading fuel efficiency, rated at 10.3/7.6 L/100 km city/ highway. This hybrid has a simulated shift control pattern that has the feel of a 10-speed gearbox. And no matter which powertrain you choose, you’ll be getting all-wheel drive—a welcome feature in Canada, with its unpredictable weather patterns.

But it’s inside that the luxury and beauty of the LS really shines through. The craftsmanship is superb, designed to delight the senses with sumptuous leather, layered herringbone wood trim and ambient lighting reminiscent of Japanese lanterns. Fit and finish are first rate, with comfortable and ultra-adjustable seats and the latest in technology and safety features. And with its new longer wheelbase, there is enough legroom for up to five occupants. On the road, the LS 500h is smooth, comfortable and ultra-quiet. But make no mistake: this is a heavy car, coming in at 2,370 kilograms. Nevertheless, it handles well with responsive electric power steering, although the outright performance may not be quite up to the best the Germans have to offer. There are seven drive modes to choose from, but most drivers will likely opt for Sport or Sport+ for a more engaged feel. From a technology standpoint, the LS 500h comes with a Lexus Safety System+, featuring the world’s first intuitive pedestrian detection with active steering. Among the other high-tech items are a 24-speaker Mark Levinson premium audio system with XM satellite radio, SIRI eyes-free, a 12.3-inch LCD display, a 24-inch head-up display and a navigation system with Lexus remote touch interface and voice recognition. I tested the 2018 model, but I expect the 2019 to be relatively unchanged, since this was a dramatically new design. In short, the new LS 500h is a luxury flagship sedan that has grace and style, combined with state-of-the-art hybrid technology and world-class performance. There’s a lot to like here.

It is wifi capable and includes a browser that lets you connect to your streaming services, and it has an HDMI input for attaching to traditional video source components and game consoles, or to mobile devices via an adapter (sold separately).

With breakthrough industrial design, the headband can be folded into half the size, which fits nicely into a standard under-table drawer. The headband, earcups and the visor ring that surrounds your eyes are well padded and encased in a durable leather-like material. To provide ventilation and prevent fogging, there are air vents in the visor and its cushion is perforated. Construction is mostly of high-impact molded plastic, but the Moon has a solid feel and metal parts are used in key areas of stress, such as the click-action sliders that fit the headband and visor to your face.

After getting discovered by Berry Gordy and signed to his new label, Motown Records, it took them 24 tries before they finally had a hit song.
