A little list of our Paris favourites when we head back to France annually for Hong Kong Tatler. From fine dining establishments to brasseries across the city of light, these are options that aren’t just for the deep pocketed.

This Kau U Fong spot has been on the lips of a few friends since it opened and a stone’s throw from the apartment, so we went to check it out. It should be a month post opening now. I came here 3 times in a week while I was back in Hong Kong and […]

Unlike most places in Macau that open at 11am-noon, Elephant Grounds opens at 8am, so you can have breakfast and get your morning brew before heading off to work. […]

This is a long overdue post but definitely one of the under rated Chinese restaurants in Hong Kong. Great dimsum, the perfect roast suckling pig and one of my favourite fish soups that reminded me of Singapore’s fish head bee hoon – with the evaporated milk added to thicken and flavour the soup, but there […]

(Fabric bought from the Taipei Yong Le Fabric market – all Japanese textiles) Sewing is my latest obsession as I spend Friday nights in Macau sewing at Studio B with my fabulous teacher, an Central St Martins Alumni. I have started the habit of picking up fabric when I travel and instead of going to […]
