What else beats drinking good wine with good people???? NOTHING!!! That’s how i enjoy my life, hehe. Anyhow, I have started developing this frenzy for red wine as of lately. I remember I was shopping in the wine ally at the International Supermarket and out of nowhere I hand picked this Australian wine called Windy Peak – Cabernet Merlot 2007 (Victoria , Australia). My colleague was with me at the time and as she used to study in Australia and for old times sake, she told me to go for that one, lol. I remember thinking at the time, boy, what a way to choose wine, hahaha. Here is a photo of the wine if you ever want to buy it. Although, I would recommend to get the 2007 one because last night I had a glass of Cabernet Merlot at California Pizza Kitchen (CPK) and it just did not taste the same, despite the waiter telling me it was 2007, but he looked abit like he was unsure, hehehe. More info about this wine can be found here.
I have to say, one of the greatest things in life is enjoying the company of good friends over nice food in a cosy environment. I recently went the Mandarin Oriental Hotel for high tea and it was really enjoyable. I ordered a Rasberry/Apricot Mousse Cake along with a Strawberry Caipirinha. I know, it was sooo early for cocktail but my girlfriends insisted so I was like sure!! Turns out one of my friend turned red face and I was perfectly fine:)

Next we we headed to this dessert shop called Antique Patisserie, which looked has a beautiful interior decor. It kinda reminded me of those high tea places back in London, lol. I saw some Macarons there too but I dont know why, the ones in Hong Kong just dont taste as good as the ones I had in Paris:P But i find macrons so colorful and pretty that i still get abit excited when i see them, hehe
