Chill out - take 5 official days off and get 12 off
The excitement of a holiday start at the planning phase. The public holiday dates for next year have been published, and it is important to strategize your leaves. It is quite relaxing to know you can take 5 days off and get 12 off over the Christmas and New Years break. If a colleague gets those days before you, then it'll be quite a pity.
Home made pineapple bun challenge success. First batch was half success (topping was too bland and wasn’t flakey) - found a different topping recipe. And I messed up the topping recipe the second time by adding too much liquid—reset. Growing and stretching myself by learning something new. Learn to fail. Always helps when you have a baking coach wife. Learning how to stay organized in the kitchen—wasn’t too messy after I was done. #keepgrowing#keeplearning#baking#pineapplebun#hkig#hkiger#hkigers#852#604#hk#hkg#hongkong#yvr#richmondbc
Founded by the same guys behind The Old Man, The Sea is nestled within the quiet enclave of Sheung Wan’s Po Yan Street. It’s got a nice display widow on the outside, with a nondescript black door that leads into the classic looking bar.
As y’all know, I’m not an avid drinker, so I got their ‘Summer in Bimini’ mocktail, a delicious pink grapefruit concoction made with @seedlipdrinks and CHEESE. So good. Must try.
As a kid we’d pass by this heritage building to take photos (like a tourist). So cool to see this ex-police marine headquarters transformed into a beautiful hotel right in the heart of Hong Kong. If you’re in the area, I definitely recommend checking out this newly renovated historic building! @house1881hk#House1881#1881公館
