HOT RIGHT NOW News from the wellness scene
Our new fav breakfast treat is Amazin’ Graze, a Malaysian health food brand that’s new to town. Offering granola, nut butters, flavoured nuts and seeds, and dehydrated fruit snacks, Amazin’ Graze offers some seriously unique (and delicious!) flavours, from hazelnut black forest granola with dried cherries, buckwheat, cashew and cacao powder; to the paleo-friendly granola made with nuts, seeds and dried fruit. For nuts, think Thai tom yum kaffir lime mixed nuts, rosemary garlic pepitas (pumpkin seeds), or five-spice tamari for that umami hit. Nuts are $50 per bag of 100-120 grams, while the granola (which is gluten-free, btw) comes in at around $75 per 250-gram bag. Nut butters are $50 per jar. Buy online at amazingraze.com.
We’ve been tooling around on Bloom Me, Hong Kong’s spa booking app, for a few weeks now and we’re definitely hooked! For the uninitiated, Bloom Me connects spa junkies with pampering outlets across the city, allowing you to make bookings at the touch of a button. Sure, booking through an app may be marginally easier than making a phone call to your regular nail salon, but where the app really impresses is the regular flash sales and discounts, which can be up to 30 percent across all categories - from massages to facials, haircuts and mani-pedis. The app plans to launch a last-minute booking service in the coming months, which will allow you to snatch up last-gasp unsold timeslots at an even better rate. Learn more at bloomme.com.hk. 8
