Dear Mr. Know-It-All
As you MUST know, Mid-Autumn Festival is coming up soon and it’s a big celebration. I have invited all my friends and family round for some food and fun. We normally just buy tins of mooncakes from you-know… the most popular place where everyone goes! But this time I want to make it more special. Well no. I actually want to impress everyone by making my own mooncakes. I know they are hard to make, but it’s worth a shot, so where can I go to get some lessons?
Personally I couldn’t care less if you handmade your moon cakes or not, I still wouldn’t be impressed. But at C for Cake you can learn how to make those cold snowy moon ones which have become a hit with their combinations of different flavors. To see their class timetable, just visit www.cforcake.com. If you want to make something closer to the traditional ones, join Coup Club to learn how to make custard moon cakes. Prices start from $360 for non members. After each lesson you will leave with your moon cakes wrapped in a beautiful gift box—now that’s the way to impress. Lesson times vary so book in advance on 2508-0666.
Dear Mr. Know-It-All
I am going on holiday soon but this year I’m having a major problem. I’ve got some pets which I really, really don’t want to leave behind. But I have no choice. There’s no one here in Hong Kong who’s free to look after my pets. I have a beloved dog and a cat that I just can’t bear to abandon, what should I do? Do we have any pet hotels around here?
A pet hotel? Is that what they call them these days? If so then maybe this will be the best “hotel” for your pets to check into: Ferndale Kennels and Cattery in Sai Kung Country Park takes on both cats and dogs—they offer a pick up service all across Hong Kong but prices varies. It is vital to book early especially during the holiday season because just like hotels, they get filled up pretty fast (2792-4340). For those who just have pet dogs then use DB Dog Dayz. Dog lover and owner Andrew will love and care for your dog as he would his own. He’ll take them for walks in the park twice a day. Note: There are a few things to do before checking them in. You will need to take your dog to visit him first so both of you are comfortable with the arrangement. Then he will see how your dog behaves around others and without your presence before deciding. To book a visit, just fill in your details and your dog’s condition on www.dbdogdayz.com.
