Flying First Class on Singapore Airlines to Hong Kong~


I fly to Hong Kong pretty often, for both business and leisure. I simply love the food, shopping and restaurants there. I recently flew there with my mummy for Cosmo Prof Asia. This is an exhibition for all beauty experts, suppliers, aesthetic doctors, beauty products and machines, factories, etc, come together to buy/sell/distribute/network. 

So, my family supplies beauty products and machines to aesthetic doctors and spa owners. Most aesthetic doctors would use our high end range called, The Skin Professionals. You can check this out at www.TheSkinProfessionals.com ~ My family's company is called, Beafully International Singapore Pte Ltd, we mainly do OEM (Original Ownership Manufacturer) - What this means, is that, we customize and produce - Aesthetic Doctors and Spa Owners their own range of beauty products with their own BRANDNAME. So, if you would like to customize your own range of skincare, bodycare or haircare beauty products, or want to Bulk-Order - Non-Evasive Stem Cells, Fillers, Botox, Hyaluronic Acid, etc, don't hesitate to email us at enquiry@theskinprofessionals.com~


I always love taking Singapore Airlines. It is reputably the best airlines in the world. The service is excellent, the lavatories are amazing clean. The Private Room is the ultimate resting sanctuary, for the First Class ticket holders. Mummy and I resting our legs at the Kris Flyer's First Class Lounge, after shopping at the Departure Hall. When it was time for boarding, a buggy sent our to our departure gate. As always, when ever I take a flight, I would always distribute my own range of SaraShantelle SkinCare products to the whole set of cabin crew. This time round, I gave them my SaraShantelle H2O Collagen Facial Foam - suitable for both men and woman, to control oil, promote skin translucency and collagen, whitening effect. 


First Class food is always good. The IFS - Inflight Supervisor helped, mummy and I to take a photo before we landed in Hong Kong, safely. We arrived into Hong Kong at night, so, we went straight to our hotel to rest for the following's day Cosmo Prof Asia Exhibition. 


As a professional Cosmoprof visitor, you always go to the expo, with a roller cabin bag or anything that can help you to carry all the heavy notes, product samples, bottle samples, packaging samples, flyers, etc. By, the time, I was ready to leave the place, my bag was completely filled to the brim!


I met up with a few old friends/suppliers/factories owners from Germany, Spain, Switzerland, France, USA, etc. We usually only meet up once a year to catch up on the latest news and ingredients from all over the world. Cosmoprof lasted for 3 full days, it was exhausting. Walking and visiting every single booth to do my marketing and product research was tiring, but it was worth it. I learn and brought back much knowledge that was needed for my business development. 


HOW I CELEBRATED CINDY'S BIRTHDAY IN HONG KONG~

So enough of work! I also recently, flew down once again to give my girlie - Cindy Li a Birthday Surprise~ Her sweet friend, arranged for me to "surprise" her at our favourite hang out in Hong Kong - Sheraton Hotel. As you can see from the previous Hong Kong trip, we love the Oysters from their Oyster Bar at the top level.

So, Cindy, didn't know that I was going there, I surprised her in the public washroom. She literally took around 15 seconds before she noticed that I standing right beside her, washing my hands in the sink. She says, "EH! SARA! WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?!". and I went, " SURPRISE!! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!". It was a great one! 


I was more than happy to fly down just to surprise Cindy for her birthday~ She was a dear friend to me. It was Deja Vu, as Cindy, surprised me on my birthday the previous year in Hong Kong too. I'll tell you more about that below. So we went to our favourite Oyster Bar at Sheraton Hotel's top level. 


Her very good friend, Elaine also managed to pop by to join the celebration. The oyster feast was fantastic!
Tip on Eating Oysters: Slurp the oysters straight off the half-shell. You may compliment it with a squeeze of lemon, a string of fresh-grated horseradish, a dollop of zippy cocktail sauce or a drop of two of red wine vinegar-and-shallot mignonette. 


After our Oyster frenzy, as our appetizer for the beginning of the night, we moved on to Armani Aqua for our dinner. Armani Aqua is located at 2/F Chater House, 8 Connaught Road Central, Hong Kong. Their interior decor is in a Red and Black trendy theme. They serve Italian and Japanese fusion food. Service is excellent as we met another girlie called Stena (super hot chick) - who frequents Armani, so we had the VVIP treatment. Glasses of Champagne were served to welcome each of us, before we ordered our food. 


Stena ordered the best food they have there. These are some pictures of their really amazing dishes. The assortment of bread were baked fresh and hot, their Sashimi were fresh, sweet and tasty. My favourite was their Wild Truffles with Beef Carpaccio, very well seasoned with Olive Oil and topped with Parmesan cheese. The green and brown looking thing you see on the bottom right picture below, is actually green vegetables! Even their greens are very well presentable, suitable to cheat the young ones who hate to eat the greens. 


So, Cindy had a birthday cake at the hotel room, now we have many little cakes for her at Armani. The chef was really nice to present us with a variety of sweet cakes for candy Cindy~. She looks absolutely cute in her "Mini Mouse" dress~ Very pretty girl!


I really like the way Armani designed their whole entrance walkway, their dining area, their bar top drinking area, and even their wash room! Girls would be girls, we took quite a few photos in there. Have you ever wondered what does "WC" stands for? A lot of other countries use this sign, on their toilet/washroom/washbasin/lavatory. WC stands for "Water Closet" (old school term). 


Stena was really nice, she decided to bring me to experience the club scene in LKF - Lan Kwai Fong. That is the part of Hong Kong, where the people party like crazy! The place is filled VIP clubs and bars. There are quite a number of clubs there, that is not open to the public, only the people from the "INNER" circle are allowed to enter. Being rich to enter isn't enough, you have to be known by the bouncers and clubs owners to have exclusive memberships to enter. And if you are like Stena, they just let her in, by the sight of her face. No VIP card is needed. That's how she rolls~ Hong Kong is her play ground.


HOW CINDY CELEBRATED MY BIRTHDAY FOR ME IN HONG KONG~ 

So Cindy brought me to her favourite hang out, that was my first time trying the Oysters at Sheraton Hotel. Sheraton Hotel is Cindy's playground, she stays there almost every month. Before you enter the Oyster Bar, there's this Wine Machine area, whereby you purchase a card, and top it up with value, then you can try their different Red and White wines at a Tasting Portion. It was really fun, we topped up our cards around 3 times, and drank ourselves happy before we even had our dinner. :) So, as always, I chose a really huge oyster and some other sweet tiny ones. It was in the month of June, so we managed to have some White Asparagus from Europe. I love White Asparagus! They are absolutely crunchy and delicious~


The next day, Cindy brought me to this place called SEVVA. Its very famous in Hong Kong. They are famous for their celebrity designer chef cakes made by Marie Antoinette. Her cakes are extraordinary! Cindy surprised me with a huge Macaroon Cake topped with Sweet Candy Floss. It was so really pretty and delicious too! Reservations at SEVVA is a must~ It is usually full during dinner time: http://www.sevva.hk/


We had a lot of fun just eating the candy floss first, before we were able to slice the cakes into smaller portions. We could not finish the cake on our own, so we gave some to the other tables around us. The fish and chips there were crispy and fresh too. The view from above is good, and the people there, were fashionably dressed in their coats and ties.


Cindy also took me on a ferry ride the following day. From Kowloon to Hong Kong. It was an experience. It was faster than taking a taxi to go to the other side of the island. The ferry ride was really cheap. It is around the same cost of a BUS Ride in Singapore. She brought me to taste from Hong Kong deserts and bean curd. It is must try in Hong Kong~ It is cheap and really yummy! Every street have a desert shop, and they all taste good. 


Hong Kong is really good for shopping. One of the MUST-GO shopping place is called SPACE. It is a PRADA and MIU MIU Factory Outlet. They sell shoes, bags, clothes, etc. I bought quite a number of shoes from there. Their shoes ranges from S$300-S$1200. The ones on display on their shelves are always the "Smallest Size" they have. Their sizes usually starts from size 7 (39) and above. So for people like me, with a size 6 feet, its a little hard to find really pretty ones. They are all huge~. 


SPACE is located at 2/F Marina Square, East Commercial Block, South Horizons, Aberdeen. Taking a Taxi, takes around 15-20 minutes from Hong Kong Island. Taking a taxi in Hong Kong is really reasonable. It is about the same price as Singapore. But make sure, you Google the address before you take the taxi, not every taxi driver knows how to get to this location. The best, is to guide them with GPS information.


Another good shopping place that you must go is their DFS Gallerie in Hong Kong. This is where you can buy all the luxury brand goods like Cartier, Chanel, Ferragamo, LV, Prada, Gucci, etc. Occasionally, they have discounts on selected items. I bought quite a number of scarfs, and winter clothes from here. There is also a VIP program - Platinum Service Club, whereby you have personalized shopping assistance and a private lounge for you to rest your tired feet.

Well, when its time to fly back to Singapore. I was happy to be served by Singapore Airlines pretty stewardesses. As you can tell, I was really bored sitting in First Class. There were only 2 passengers on the morning flights back home. So I took quite a few photos and videos.
