Honi Honi Tiki Cocktail Lounge

Honi Honi's toned-down version of the Polynesian tiki bar brings a splash of sunshine to Central.

This is where Honi Honi really shines. Every drink we tried was tasty and some were superb. I'm happy that the noble tradition of the scorpion bowl - a big porcelain bowl of booze filled with long straws and shared by four or more people - is now in Hong Kong. But that night we stuck to the more traditionally sized cocktails.

Light meals with healthier rice

Boiled white rice is the mainstay of Asian cuisine. But it's not particularly nutritious. Unmilled rice - such as brown and red varieties - contains more nutrients than polished white rice.

Red and brown rice are also better sources of fibre: 100g of brown rice provides 2.8g of fibre, red rice 2g, and white rice only 0.6g.

The Rockhouse, Jamaica

Where is it? Perched on the limestone cliffs at the western end of Negril, Jamaica, the Rockhouse hotel is a sanctuary from the hubbub of the main tourist beach. There are no hawkers selling fake Rolexes, just deep-blue water percolating through the grottos and sea air steeped in the sounds of reggae.
