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.
