What we liked? We took our modish crew on a Sunday morning to this High Street party and it was well worth it. After Paris, Tokyo, New York it was Hong Kong’s fashionista’s turn to experience this journey (read party) in one of the city’s uptown streets. Yellow was the theme for the day as it’s the prominent colour of the Veuve Clicquot brand. The installations were unique; it had vintage rickshaws which I have previously seen only in India, precisely on the streets of Kolkata. With kids waving at us, while our videographer was capturing the action, it was brimming with sheer merriment which was evident on the faces of the attendees.
Who’s Who? Not a celeb-studded event, but the crowd was a mix of the expat community who lives in and around Sai Ying Pung and Central, who were joined by some of the swanky local youths too. We spotted a mostly young crowd basking under the sun.
Highlights: The participating restaurants were filled with food connoisseurs who clearly enjoyed their cuisine being paired with their favorite champagne. It was a gourmet delight, our favourite was the hot barbecue chicken that we were served.
What we loved? The ambiance was fun-filled with yellow as the theme which blended well with the high street itself. We loved the music that certainly made some of us tap our heels to the tunes. Indeed a journey we would want to experience again!
