Four Seasons The Lounge + The Mandarin Cake Shop

The Lounge @ Four Seasons

地址: 中環金融街8號四季酒店大堂

消費: $225 / High Tea Set for 1

Food: 4 / 5

Service: 5 / 5 

Environment: 4 / 5

Comment: Stressed out because of the endless marking, I have been feeling an overwhelming sense of helplessness and suffering from insomnia these weeks. It's time to chill out and indulge myself with cute cakes in Four Seasons, a six-star hotel. The Lounge there outperforms the Lounge and Bar of the Ritz-Carlton in a number of ways. The music is more relaxing. The seats are more comfortable. The waiters and waitresses served us more proactively and sincerely so that we felt completely at ease. We ordered Four Seasons Signature Blended Green Tea (very impressive!) and Organic Lychee Green Tea (too strong and slightly bitter). We were also provided with a refill (2 cakes / person), which gave us better value for money. Despite these, the food is sweeter than the one in the Ritz-Carlton. Besides, the view from the Ritz-Carlton is beyond compare. Anyway, it was a beautiful day and I felt reinvigorated afterwards.

  1. 有風景、有美食、有靚靚媽媽、有孝順仔仔,簡直是super sweet,好溫馨啊﹗very very very good 我真要向你多多學習,做個孝順女。
    [版主回覆06/21/2011 00:31:00]I am indeed under my friend's influence. I don't want to have any regret in the future. My mum definitely deserves more. She has sacrificed her youth to take care of everyone in the family and she is good to the people around her and me. It is a pity that not everyone treasures her love. What's more, she lost her father when she was young and she was not well educated because of poverty and hearing problem. Still, she is persevering and sincere. She instills positive values into me and without her, I am probably nothing as I lacked potential. THANKS to my mum. If possible, I will try to hang out more with her, though some despicable people may look down on those who always stay with their parents. Anyway, thanks for your sincere support. I am who I am and I just don't care what other people say. ^^

  2. 蛋糕都有得refill~~! 正喎~~~~!
    我都唔明點解依家d人覺得同daddy媽咪出街係老土係(火羅)既行為...點解陪自己既父母係老土喎, 我希望後生一輩要明白"樹欲靜時風不息, 子欲養時親不在"呢個concept...
    [版主回覆06/21/2011 18:57:00]Exactly, I despise the people who think so. 點解陪自己既父母係老土? Very weird!!! I opt to t reasure the people around me and be good to them before it is too
    late. As for what other people say or think, I ignore and despise them.

  3. Nice  I wish more young people will be influenced by you in this positive attitude.
    [版主回覆06/22/2011 21:42:00]Thanks so much. I also want to thank my friend and movies.

  4. 多謝你的留言。

  8. 四季酒店的環境雖然一流, 但那個週日lunch buffet, 我覺得唔掂呀
    只要是自己認為對的事, 別人的閒言閒語又何須理會? 支持 Kenji  
    [版主回覆06/25/2011 14:25:00]Thanks for the information. I went there for high tea because of Sloppy Joe's recommendation. You are right. I am who I am and I enjoy my life in my own way. THX!!!

  9. sorry我收唔到你的reply,現在才看見﹗我當然支持你啦 ﹗你真係好難得,好體諒媽媽,以及很愛錫她,有你這個仔仔,她一定很滿足。
    [版主回覆06/26/2011 14:22:00]Thanks. It is sad to find that many people are quite indifferent to their parents... lonely when they are old. I will not let this happen. ^^

  10. 你似乎愛上了甜品 .....
    [版主回覆06/26/2011 22:19:00]I always love cakes. I just do not know where I can eat some very nice ones. Thanks to the reviews on Open Rice, I know where to go. ^^

  11. i love cakes too. it's not easy to find high quality stuff with reasonable prize. anyway, Maxim's black forest is my favorite especially concerning the pricing. besides, holiday inn at nathan road also provides good stuff. 
    [版主回覆06/28/2011 19:38:00]Thanks a lot. I do love some of the cakes in Maxim's. I just want to try some less common ones and introduce them to my blogmates. Holiday Inn... Still have not tried it.

  12. 好幸福呀~~~~><
    [版主回覆07/01/2011 13:33:00]I regularly check my teeth and my dentist is often impressed by my white teeth.

  13. Kenji Sir又與媽媽high tea 了, Kenji 媽媽很幸福啊!
    很少男生喜歡吃甜品, 特別是當"阿Sir"(直覺上認為)的!
    [版主回覆07/03/2011 01:32:00]HAHAHA.... It sounds plausible. I just love food, different kinds, just like movies.

  14. Hi Friend, I just wonder we went at the same day and you were sitting next of my table~
    [版主回覆07/03/2011 01:33:00]Thanks so much for your visit. I went there on Monday.

  15. 嘩, 食咗兩次咁好味的蛋糕, 幸福呢~

  16. 你而家好似講食多過講戲!失眠好番未?
    [版主回覆07/08/2011 00:08:00]Movies are quite disappointing these days. Dunno when there will be very good movies... The marking is over and I feel better now. However, there are still some administrative duties to be finished. I will keep working hard. THANKS so much for asking.

  17. So hot these days,
    wanna have one?

  21. 1. +1 or like, depends on whether you are on Google+ or FB. 2. haven't tried the Ritz Carlton yet, but Four Seasons is the best high tea i've tried so far in terms of the quality of food. 3. amazing!  there's always clear blue sky whenever you go for high tea!!! 4. are you sure that's your mother but not your older sister?  :-) pls keep on sharing more of your restaurant review!
    [版主回覆07/27/2011 05:33:00]Thanks for your recommendation. I was there because of you. THANKS!!! HAHA right... blue sky is really rare these years and I was lucky. My mum is young looking and I am proud of her haha.  I do not understand your point NO.1????

  22. sorry to confuse u....in FB, if we like a status or a photo, we click "LIKE".  In Google+, it's +1, different jargon but similar meaning.  Simply put, i like this post :-P
    [版主回覆07/29/2011 04:22:00]I see... I am so outdated. ^^
