私房菜、私人形象设计、私人聚会游船河、私家特色景观摄影路线,香港样样有。

这个夏天,新加坡部落格大奖的得奖者获得香港旅游发展局的赞助,到香港参加香港龙舟嘉年华,也在旅游局的安排下,体验多样吃喝、玩、乐的“私房货”。超越美食天堂、购物天堂的玩法,你也可以自己去体验!

明星御用形象设计师陪你“瞎拼”

从尖沙咀、铜锣湾等地区购买高档、名牌服饰,到弥敦道、旺角一带的著名批发商店区,还有让“瞎拼客”动心的国际服装公司H&M等等,香港的夏季,除了平时喜欢追随潮流的购物者,也少不了前来购买季末时尚服饰的旅客。

这么多选择当前,如果有个私人形象设计师陪你一起逛街,是不是更加令人兴奋?这次的夏日之旅,香港旅游发展局拜托Kelly陈慧琳、孙耀威、谢安琪等明星的御用形象设计师黄欐尧(Celia Wong),为其中四位部落客打造一个非常不一样的自己。

Celia自两年发布一本关于女生装扮的《魔法衣柜》之后,发现Personal shopping的行业在国外非常流行,在香港却还没起步,于是开始提供这项服务。一般上,Celia都会都委托人的住家看她们的衣柜,或先了解个人的喜好,然后再进行改造。Celia自己的服装店里的服饰都是从欧洲、日本等地采购,但是她对香港的服装当然也了如指掌,所以在打造新造型时,也会依据委托人的预算去配合。

点击视频,就可以看到星级形象设计师Celia,连同著名化妆学校Make Up Forever的专业化妆师,如何为四位风格不同的部落客打造全新形象!

扬帆游维多利亚港看夜景

坐在香港独一无二的欧洲高桅仿古帆船,享受维多利亚海港的凉风,将两侧高楼大厦的灯火尽收眼底,一边享用晚餐。

这就是在《济民号》(The Bounty)上的独特用餐体验。这艘仿古船是按照1784年一艘商船所建造,也就是好莱坞电影《The Bounty》的拍摄场景。你可以在船上办婚礼、搞派对,船上可以容纳60位宾客,是中小型聚会的理想场地。

岁月神偷留下的香港风貌

要找到香港最原始的风貌,一定要往上走。香港旅游发展局为部落客们约了摄影高手孙树坤,带一伙人到中环半山区,用相机捕捉岁月在香港留下的痕迹。

孙树坤是拍摄纪录片的能手,也在大学教授新闻摄影。近年,他与志同道合的摄影师开设“光影作坊”,举办摄影展览和工作坊。他在接受访问时说,从香港的半山区,能够看见不同时候建造的建筑物,非常有层次的呈现在眼前。在越高处出现的建筑物,越是古旧。

往半山走的大部分行程都是由自动扶梯代步。从中环至半山耗资2亿4千万港元兴建的自动扶梯系统是由香港政府兴建,原意是为方便半山区居民往来中环商业区,并舒缓半山区狭窄道路的繁忙情况。孙树坤在途中带部落客走入一座回教堂、指点大家注意树根贴在墙上的树木,也带大家到香港电影《岁月神偷》拍摄场景的永利街去怀旧一番。

老唐楼  私房菜

香港是个美食天堂,也不乏私房菜馆。2008年开设的鸳鸯饭店,就位于繁忙的湾仔区的一座中式古老唐楼改建而成的3层楼建筑。

饭店内只能容纳30人,只有预订才能品尝到老板徐蒝(Margaret Xu)的原创佳肴。广告界出身的徐老板,非常重视卖相、原创性,食材的新鲜,甚至有自己的农场,自己耕种有机蔬菜。招牌菜民谣黄土鸡的烤炉,也是特制的,可见她对每一个细节的用心。

Hong Kong Paaartaaay – A Video Pictorial

By , August 4, 2010 3:23 am

I was feeling a little ‘creative’ tonight (it’s a shame that my talents do not match my desires), so decided to savour the memories of our fabulous Hong Kong trip with some of my favourite moments in a short flash video pictorial – thanks and also apologies to all my fellow bloggers from whom I’ve ‘borrowed’ many of the pictures… :p

Sit back, turn up the volume and PAAARTAAAY along with me – Enjoy!!

Good-to-know facts about Hong Kong

By , July 20, 2010 2:00 pm

Thanks to omy.sg and Hong Kong Tourism Board, Shinnpark.com has won the e-Commerce Blog this year. 3 more days to go and we’ll be off to Hong Kong! Here is a mini list of what I have trawled over the net for a good-to-know bite-size list.

#1 Victoria Peak Imagine yourself standing from the tallest point and you’ll see the most magnificent harbors on Earth! The one thing that is on top of my list would have to be The Victoria Peak. Even my friends, who have been staying there for years, raves about it.

If you think you have a slight acrophobia like I do, and in need of almost real to life virtual walk, take a peek here.

#2 Its in the name — ‘Fragrant Harbor 香港 A vivid aroma. Buttery egg tarts, freshly made dumplings and pipping hot fish congee. Hong Kong derives its name from a Cantonese word meaning “fragrant harbor.” Do you know that their national flower rendering in the National flag is a Bauhinia blakeana flower discovered in Hong Kong?

#3 Get your fortune read! You’ll see many fortune tellers with differing skills, from reading tea leaves (yes, the one for drinking!) to Tarot Cards. According to my girlfriend who is residing there, fortune telling is very popular and is chargeable at around HK50-150, my girlfriend swears that her reading was 80% accurate! and that is through palm reading style.

#4 Cha Chan Teng 茶餐廳. For some odd reason, I love to hang out in these ageless charm of the 1960s decor cafe. Maybe it has to do with my childhood, hanging around my grandmother’s vintage ware and rolling chinese tea leaves into my plastic cup for play. Soak into that old-fashioned and romantic ambient! Thick toast, half boiled eggs and tea — all served in a vintage ware will totally make my day! *screams

#5 A Symphony of Lights at the Avenue of Stars. Well known by the Guinness World Record as the world’s “Largest Permanent Light and Sound Show”, this is defintely Hong Kong’s version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It celebrates icons of Hong Kong cinema from the past century, and the seaside promenade offers fantastic views, especially at night.

#6 Wi-Fi. This could possibly be a good place for my tired legs and also an e-update on my trip — Starbucks offers free internet access for those who like to connect with friends over a cuppa.

#7 A cheap sightseeing tram ride. Hop on to one of these cheap tram rides and see how Hong Kong is the epitome of east-meets-west culture! Through the slow-paced journey, you’ll be able to see the neighborhood area gradually changing from old eclectic buildings to all mighty skyscrapers.

#8 Sail with Bounty The original Bounty was built in 1784, and carries a legendary story in the British nautical history. She is the only European tall ship that resides in Hong Kong! I’ve never sat in one like that before. Thanks to The Bounty, we’ll be enjoying a nice cruise ride and wonderful BUFFET dinner!

#9 Getting Around in a Taxi Although I love to take the MTR with the Octopus card, sometimes you will need to get to a destination, fast. With the first two kilometers priced at only $2, and a charge of $0.90 for every kilometer thereafter, taxis are one of Hong Kong’s great bargains and can be hailed almost anywhere. Here is a tip — try and write out the destination in Chinese.  The drivers are generally more familiar with this language and also, they are able to get to your destination at the soonest time possible.

#10 Bring home a slice of Hong Kong’s unique culture If you are bored of getting the usual souvenirs for your friends, head over to G.O.D. (the initials are a homonym of the Cantonese phrase “to live better”) instead. I’ve seen them on an interview in Singapore’s Channel News Asia and I tell you, every single item sold in their store echoes a past erain Hong Kong. They have almost everything from lifestyle and living products and much of them have incorporated the 20th-century Hong Kong imagery.

What excites me …

By , July 20, 2010 12:39 pm

Just got the news that we would be having dinner and a cruise on board a Tall Ship, the Bounty on the evening of the 24th! I can never resist the sight of a Tall Ship, especially when she is fully rigged, and I think there is nothing more magnificent to see one … there was one, the STS Pallada, in port in Singapore back in March and I made it a point to visit her. So the prospect of a cruise on board the Bounty, which is a 1978 Australian built replica of the ship famed for giving us the Mutiny on the Bounty. The replica was built for the Dino de Laurentis film “The Bounty” released in 1983 which starred Mel Gibson as Fletcher Christian and Anthony Hopkins as Captain William Bligh. More information can be found on the website of the Bounty.
