back in Hong Kong

Conrad Hotel, Hong Kong

Thank you (and at the same time sorry) to my beautiful readers for sticking with me and for my absence recently! It’s not that I didn’t travel, or didn’t go out, but I had an unforgivable low, which I promise is over now!

Scusi, dear all – more to be coming soon on the beautiful things going on in this beautiful world:

As of now, I am in Hong Kong, back at the Conrad Hotel, which is part of Pacific Place, connected to the ShangriLa and JW Marriott, creating a fabulous starting point to experiencing this amazing city!

The advantage of staying here is that, if you book the executive level rooms, not only do you get your breakfast included, but also a 2-hour champagne (or whatever catches your fancy) after hour cocktail experience, including fresh sushi, nibbles and delectable desserts. All of it for free – or included in the price of the hotel, which I guess made you pay for it already… However, it still is really nice!

Plus, a gorgeous view of the harbor and the skyline of Kowloon!

Now, if you don’t know what do with your fall, book a ticket to Hong Kong and enjoy this most wonderful of cities at its best!


Joss in SoBo

And here I was, thinking that I knew all the non-Indian places in South Bombay – and I was wrong! I discovered this lovely Eastern-fusion place, called Joss just this week. It is where it is for quite a long time, but for some strange reason, we never went – big mistake!

Joss has a nice interior – the picture doesn’t do it quite justice – it is way more stylish and the ambience a lot more pleasing – and the menu is quite a revelation.

Not necessarily haute cuisine, but solid, good Asian-fusion! Everything from sushi to stir fries and laksas. Well executed and authentic in taste and presentation.

It is opposite Jehangir Gallery just off M.G. Road in South Bombay. Don’t miss out on the place the next time you are in the area!
