Kim Dotcom came to Hong Kong because it was a smart business choice; he stayed because of its "electrified soul". But now the self-styled entrepreneur is banned from returning to his penthouse suite at the Grand Hyatt in Wan Chai.

It seems that the macaron craze is not going to fade soon. Not when Valentine's Day is just round the corner, at least. While we have Ladurée added to the shop options alongside Jean-Paul Hévin, Le Goûter Bernardaud and Paul Lafayet, Grand Hyatt Hong Kong is offering guests a chance to make the treats themselves together with their loved one.

Facial by machine

Comments such as 'Wah, you gained weight', 'Still not married?', 'You're not getting any younger' and 'You're not a spring chicken any more' have been increasing in frequency when I visit the family. Having no desire to get hitched just yet nor become Hong Kong's answer to Mr Motivator, I've decided instead to address the irreversible process of ageing.
