This is not a food blog. I used to hate doing food reviews in F… hate is a strong word. Let’s just say it wasn’t my favourite part of my job. But I just want to share these stories and photos because my trip to Hong Kong with The Bag Hag/Ingrid was very much about food. And I enjoyed every single bite… too much.
Warning, looking at food photos past midnight will make you hungry.
We met Geoffrey Wu of the Mandarin Oriental Hong Kong (thanks to Charisse Chuidian and Erika Aquino of the Mandarin Oriental Manila). Geoff is wearing a black jacket. He took us to the opening of his friend’s restaurant called Canto Pop. Met editors of Luxe City Guides, Janice Leung (assistant editor) and Kee Foong (editor); and Ogilvy & Mather’s Tim Ho.
The eggs they use are not only organic, they’re “music eggs.” The chicken listen to music while laying eggs… very interesting. So the yolks are bigger etc.
And she knew I needed caffeine in the morning before I could fully function as a human being. So she dared me to have half milk-half coffee. I could only have half of it. I could feel the caffeine running through my veins after one sip.
I found the best jeggings for my girls. This was on their wish list. It started with Sophia who “discovered” it in Orange Juice. She said it was like jeans but so comfy. So then Lily wanted it badly. But because they’re from a couple of seasons ago, Gingersnaps was already out of her size. But HK was still raining jeggings. So I got one for each kid in H&M and Giordano. Note that I do not wear such things. Jeggings are only cute and acceptable on kids, IMHO.
