editor’s letter They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder and we at Southside Magazine think you are all beautiful. Shot in the serene Sense of Touch spa in Repulse Bay, this month’s cover is dedicated to Hong Kong’s beauty entrepreneurs. From waxing to hydro facials, these spas and salons keep Hong Kong looking its finest. After having to close for six months in 2020 due to government restrictions, these beauticians are back and better than ever. They share their beauty tips and secrets to success in our cover story (page 16). With Easter just around the corner, there is no better time to pack up a picnic and enjoy the city’s great outdoors...before the humidity sets in. We’ve rounded up the best pre-prepared picnic sets and where to enjoy them in our dining section (page 22). While you’re out and about, why not hop along to the Hong Kong Living Easter Fair on April 5-6. With a variety of pop-up booths, children’s activities and an Easter egg hunt, there will be plenty of fun for the whole family. Come and say hi at The Pulse from 11-6pm. Wishing you an egg-cellent Easter with plenty of chocolate.

Food from afar
Just because we can’t travel freely at the moment doesn’t mean our taste buds can’t either. Dominique Ansel has just released an adorable new pastry collection, Around The World, featuring five of the team's favorite destinations including a mango sticky rice cake in the shape of a mango and a cheesecake in the shape of a French Brie wheel. dangwenli.com
