Cork Boards As Art And Jewellery Display?

Cork boards are pretty boring. They can look wonderful when given a large amount of space as an organized photo wall but in many cases just need a simple revamp to become a delightful display in their own right. NOTE : Cover a cork board with beautiful fabric to stabilize the cork and create a…

Raven Reviews : Horizon Plaza, Ap Lei Chau

Horizon Plaza is a mystical place that is shrouded in intrigue, likely because so many people have heard about it, yet have never been there. Therefore, the fabulous myth of horizon plaza grows. Some tell of floor after floor filled with discounts, others tell of a place that has the highest quality furniture that one…

Feng Shui vs. Accessorizing…

Originally posted on Fabrics and Frames Furniture:
A common debate in the interior design world is the question of how many items should be placed in a room.  Based off the theory of Feng Shui, a system of laws considered to govern spatial arrangement and orientation in relation to the flow of energy, this theory argues…

The Saturday Club : Alfies

Alfies, as always, is absolutely scrumptious food. For such a beautiful venue, the steep prices are worth every dollar – not like many flashy venues around town that boast a beautiful view and serve mediocre flab. With simple english staples such as bangers and mash, toad in a hole, fish and chips (lauded by some…

We Love Cathay Pacific

I’ve got to say, I’m quite a fan of Hong Kong’s Cathay Pacific Airlines. The attendants are consistently attentive and the service standard high. The food is fairly decent and there are reasonable options for vegetarian and gluten free meals. For the years I’ve been travelling with them, the staff and service has been reliable…

Perfect Weather After The Rain

What an incredible day after the weekends smog and awful pollution. Hugh visibility 22*C Thank goodness for the rain. Also, yesterday I got engaged so it’s a perfect crisp welcome to my new life as Lady Allom!

Worst Pollution Yet!

Whether it’s the Xmas factory overtime in China, or some unfortunate winds/temperature combinations, Hong Kong’s pollution is a topic that this city should hang its head in shame about. How embarrassing to have air this bad when one is situated on a waterfront. Appalling and inexcusable. Get your act together HK government and…

Stanley Main Street

Stanley Main Street is a pretty and tranquil waterfront area that is popular for its restaurants, lane-way market shopping and cultural attractions. Beautiful for weekend visits, there are often promenade festivities and other events held in the area. One of my favourite things about Stanley is that it’s a great place to find and buy…

The Saturday Club : Delicious! Giando Lives Up To Its Famous Reputation

Magnifico! Giando lives up to its famed reputation as being a favourite hot spot for delicious italian food. Located on the first floor of the little two storey naval building, Giando’s welcomes us with a bright little entry area decorated with vintage items. Long windows stretch down the side of the restaurant and allow ample light…

Museum Of Medical Sciences

I thought this building would be a lot more creepy than it actually is. In my mind loomed thoughts of galleries of awful torture scientific devices and mad scientist experiments (pig-goat-dimsum-creatures?) but upon visiting, all of my vague worries proved seriously unfounded. In fact, this museum is very interesing – set in a heritage building…
