Thanks from a Birthday Boy @ Gaddi's + Ruth's Chris Steak House

November is my birthday month. Overwhelmed by endless uphill work and cold eyes, I have been suffering from insomnia these days. Thanks to the ubiquitous angels all around me, I am once again able to remind myself that under no circumstances will I let myself unnecessarily fall into a state of melancholy and hatred. Grateful thanks are due to my loving mum, supportive friends and sincere students for their love, which has brightened up my gloomy days. Perhaps, the very essence of happiness is an awareness of love. Dear angels, I know no words adequate to convey my thanks for your support and I know I am loved. During the festive season, I wish you happiness and health.

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.

Comments: Climb high; See wide! On the 102nd floor, my mum and I sat in front of a huge sheet of glass. Listening to relaxing music, we gazed at the bustling city in amazement. The fleecy white clouds drifted across the sky. At times, rays of sunlight pierced the clouds and gilded the sea on which the waves danced and sparkled. Most of the cakes were luscious except the scones which were as hard as rocks. Visitors are advised to arrive at the hotel at 13:30 on weekdays in order to grab two window seats since reservations are not accepted. Besides, please note that gentlemen should not wear shorts and sandals. Moreover, it is a good idea to check the weather forecast beforehand and go there on a windy day so that one can enjoy the breathtaking view. Finally, you may want to put on sunscreen. Anyway, we had a great time and highly recommend The Lounge & Bar to you.


觀音山 Buddha Mountain

Kenji Chan: Buddha Mountain is a gripping drama with a gritty description of the bleak lower-class city life, lifelike characters the audience cares about and convincing performances from the ensemble cast (Sylvia Chang, Fan Bingbing, Bolin Chen and Fei Long). The film talks about the bewilderment of youth, family breakdown, generational conflict, respect for teachers, bereavement, loneliness, the unpredictability of life, etc. The developing city and the mountainous terrain of post-earthquake sizzling Sichuan are rawly shot, which provides a perfect backdrop for this coming-of-age story. The documentary-like style and the insertion of real footage also add to realism. I highly recommend it to movie lovers. 3.9 / 5

Comments: A relaxing buffet dinner with a good variety of food (Movenpick Ice-cream, lobsters - very fresh, etc), but some (only some) food is of average quality. After the dinner, we went to a free smoking area outside Le 188° Restaurant & Lounge on the 23rd floor to enjoy the breathtaking view.
