From winning a “amazing race style” competition (by Accor & Cathay Pacific in 2013) to “living” in Hong Kong for two weeks last December (hosted by Eton Properties – Mini Central/Stanley, Apple Dorms, Dragon Centre), I find Hong Kong an incredible contrast of experiences that adds exhilaration to all my previous trips – the people, the fashion, the street food, the economy, the Michelin star restaurants, the taxis, the buildings and markets – there is so much to take in!

While I can tell you all about shopping, hiking (HK has marvellous, SAFE hiking trails!) and of course, food (my expertise), I just recently got to know more about HK products during the In Style • Hong Kong event organised by Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC).
In 2 hours, I drank tea from tea capsules brewed in a tea machine, assembled a cute hippo from wooden cut-outs, got my very first selfie stick and realized there is such a thing as a ‘Non-Spill-Suction Mug‘ which I found super useful for my partner who likes her drinks close by while working on her laptop.

Now if you are a fan of all things Hong Kong or if you wish to get yourself acquainted with the Hong Kong lifestyle, get a taste of it right here in KL via the current In Style • Hong Kong event!
What exactly is “In Style • Hong Kong“?
In Style • Hong Kong refers to an on-going series of events that are focused on highlighting Hong Kong’s lifestyle and creativity. This campaign will run from now until the end of November.
There are many ways YOU (yes, you!) can be a part of it besides taking advantage of the promotion offered.
For a start, I know many of us won’t say no to discounts so the first thing you must do is pick up a coupon booklet which offers shopping, dining discounts and incentives at more than 140 participating eateries and outlets in Kuala Lumpur.
Just grab one at participating outlets from now to 30 November and start enjoying exclusive savings for dining, shopping and even hotel stays!
With this coupon booklet you can shop discounted rates at well-known Hong Kong fashion and lifestyle brands like Giordano, G2000 and Hang Ten, popular jewellers Chow Tai Fook and TSL, optical boutiques eGG and Optical 88. Foodwise you can enjoy delicacies at Canton-i, indulge in Hong Kong egg waffles, drink milk tea and more.
Just remember to use the coupons from Citywide Promotion coupon booklet!
Otherwise, surf over to gourmet website Openrice Malaysia (https://my.openrice.com/info/hktdc/index.html) and online retailer Lazada Malaysia from mid-October to redeem vouchers for Hong Kong products and gourmet deals.
In Style pop-up stores will be set up at 5 Parkson outlets between 25 October and and 8 November and each will showcase a range of Hong Kong products selected from HKTDC Design Gallery. Expect to see Hong Kong lifestyle elements such as design-led products, trendy fashion and culinary experiences plus special offers from selected retail shops and restaurants.
