The Saturday Club : Press Room & Organic Pop Up Market

The Press Room is a high ceilinged space, lit by moody ambient lighting and long windows that stretch along the length of the restaurant. It is bustling and crowded even on a rainy Saturday. Somehow, this place never quite feels cosy, with hard backed and bottomed chairs that some find uncomfortable for a length of…

Hong Kong’s MTR (underground train system)

The MTR is Hong Kong’s Mass Transit Railway and transports almost five million people to their destinations daily. Crowded, fast and efficient, the experience is much like being a sardine in a tin.

The Saturday Club : Oolaa & Rare Book Shop

Oolaa is a favourite restaurant of mine because of its quality food and good service. The ambience is fun, sunny and friendly and the experience is consistent, which is very important to me because of my picky nature and various food sensitivities to pepper, onions and oil. This weekend, The Saturday Club chose Oolaa, Soho…

Raven Reviews : Ladder Street

The steep stairs of Ladder street lead down from Caine Road, passing by U Lam Terrace, Bridges Street, Hollywood Road and Upper Lascar Row before ending at Queens Road Central.
