A city brimming with street food, restaurants that boast long histories and more, Hong Kong’s food scene is colossal in terms of its expansive selection and years of heritage and culture (both local and foreign) injected into each dish be it the humble char siew bao or the European-influenced macaroni and scrambled eggs combo.

Here’s a piece of news to travel lovers —you do not have to leave your full-time job to pursue your innate wanderlust. Let’s face it, not everyone can afford to abandon their families and financial securities to chase their travel desires. Having said that, we want Singaporeans to know that they can still travel, even when working full-time.
When it comes to travelling, full-time workers in Singapore will find that time is the number one issue they face. Yet, there is a significant group of savvy travellers who are still constantly travelling despite the dedication to their established careers. It is no secret—they have great time management skills, make no excuses and plan in advance! And so should you, especially with 9 long weekends in 2019.
Before you complain about the impossibility of travelling due to your limited annual leave, read our 7 tips on how you can still travel with a full-time job.
Travelling is good for the soul. Travelling brings about many realisations on top of invaluable experiences. Travelling is something that we all should do.
While it is common to save our annual leave and money for trips with our loved ones, travelling solo can also be interesting. We may be visiting the same places and sampling the same food as our friends, but because we view the world through different lenses, what’s significant to one may not have as profound an impact on someone else.
Travelling solo isn’t as easy. Loneliness is real, and being alone in a foreign land may often be intimidating. We won’t have someone to help us get out of a knotty situation; we won’t have someone to fall back on. But just as well, because we get a different exposure and more often than not, solo trips will change you for the better.
We’ve taken a couple of solo trips ourselves and we’ve found them to be enriching, and if you haven’t taken one, we strongly encourage you to do so. Here are some of the ways a solo trip will change you for the better.
Despite how sexist the cliché of “a woman’s place is in the kitchen” sounds, we need to keep women in the kitchen. It’s no shocker that the top rungs of the food industry have long been dominated by men. Even Times published the article “Gods of Food” in 2013 with not a single female in their list. But the status quo is teetering with female chefs and restauranteurs arising. There have, of course, been women trailblazers at the helms of kitchens for decades but today, the few have become the many.
A woman’s place is in the kitchen if she so decides it to be. International Women’s Day 2019 (IWD 2019) is coming up on 8 March and we’re celebrating the global campaign all through the year the best way we know how. This list recognises some of the heroines who are changing the food scene by stepping up to the plate. No matter where they came from or how high they have strived, one thing unites us with them: we love food. And when food doesn’t discriminate why should we? Drop by their eateries and prepare to be impressed.
At the mere mention of Hong Kong, one would immediately think of a beautiful, bustling city filled with lots of people, exciting places to shop at as well as delicious dim sum. Besides that, Hong Kong is a renowned food paradise with a plethora of mouthwatering eats at your local dim sum joint, hipster cafe or cha chaan teng.
But if you’re looking for something a notch higher, Hong Kong is also home to numerous places that provide excellent afternoon tea. Locals love their afternoon tea. Period. And what better way than to experience tea time—the high ses way—than at one of these 15 afternoon tea places in Hong Kong?
