We usually blame America for introducing overly sized, overly fried, and overly greasy fast food to the world—so here is something healthy that we can genuinely be thankful for: the creation of froyo. Froyo, short for frozen yogurt, was first introduced in New England as a low-fat alternative to soft-serve ice cream. Today, froyo caters to dessert-lovers all over the world.
Rosanna Chu and Celine Mahtani don their tasting caps in search of the best froyo in town.
In the wake of the art frenzy spreading across Hong Kong during ART HK, the West Kowloon Cultural District Authority (WKCDA) has put on a wide-scale contemporary art exhibition that isn’t attached to one building or gallery. Instead, it’ll take place in various underused spaces, like lots, office buildings and parks. Through June 6, they’ll be showing edgy works that encompass myriad art forms, from digital video installations to performances and sculptures.
While art fiends wait in anticipation for the M+ contemporary art museum to be built, the Mobile M+ exhibit showcases installations from seven local artists in Yau Ma Tei.
Calling all Francophiles: Le French May is upon us again, adding a hefty dose of joie de vivre to Hong Kong cultural life. Throughout the festival, catch events that celebrate the French tradition in various disciplines—from visual arts, classical and contemporary music to dance, dramatic performance and cinema.

Now in its landmark 20th year, Le French May remains a testament to the French community here, some 13,000 strong and growing steadily.
Sure, we’re halfway through the month of May, but Le French May—which really continues through June—is just getting started. Leanne Mirandilla and Celine Mahtani get the low-down on this very Gallic food and culture festival.
At least until June 7, the very moment you walk into ArtisTree, a 20,000-square-foot multi-purpose space in Quarry Bay, you are immediately plunged into what feels like a dreamscape.
