Island's homemade Japanese treats

Hometown Cafe

17 Cheung Chau Church Road, Cheung Chau, 29815038

Fare Homemade Japanese hand rolls and red bean cakes.

Ambience Typical of an island outdoor cafe, with alfresco seating. The operation is run out of the home of a Japanese family. The husband is a wind-power engineer and the wife makes use of her time serving snacks to visitors.

Dream cuisine

O Sip Hah

15 Old Bailey Street, Central 36223222

Fare Thai and French.

Ambience The biggest winner here. The dreamlike interior features chandeliers, black and white tiles, antique candle stands and sheer curtains. When the glass door is opened and the breeze blows the curtain inward, it has the feel of a film noir moment.

The Metro

'Where is your watch?' I asked one of my friends during dinner the other day. He said: 'I don't need one, my mobile phone tells time.' I took his plate of sushi away and gave him some edamame. 'This has all the nutrients you need, you don't need sushi.'

The metro

Men who wear the right shorts-and-shoe combinations probably have no idea how much they sweep onlookers off their feet ... and that it's the exact opposite for guys who do it wrong.

My editor brought up an example the other day: Jesus sandals and thick socks. It's the kind of memory that I block - like a really bad date - but she brought it all back.

Come take a swing

There are many reasons to take up the Auld Game

The sport attracts a wide spectrum of players: from the breezy tycoon, chatting about his next merger as he swings a club, and the lifestyle aficionado, putting around on a vacation at a tropical resort, to families enjoying a day out on the links and office employees bonding on the green in team-building exercises.

Packages that aim to please

You give your mother flowers, take her out to dinner, but you cannot just leave her by herself for the rest of the day ... unless you treat her to a spa
