WEEKENDER: A Quick Escape with Flight Centre, Embark on a Journey with Veuve Clicquot and more

19 August, 2016

What’s on this weekend…

 

Rain, rain go away! We’re fed up of the dreary weather that’s plagued Hong Kong this week and more than ready for the weekend to begin. And with a really cool lineup ahead, we’re just going to pretend that the sun is shining (fingers crossed!), book ourselves a little holiday, sip on some champers and shop ’til we drop!

Arnold Classic Asia

In a recent interview we caught up with strongwoman, Santina Philips, as she gears up for the Arnold Classic Asia. And aside from leaving us with some serious aspirational goals, she gave us a glimpse as to what to expect from the weekend ahead! A multi-sport festival featuring everything from Crossfit, arm wrestling and Krav Maga, to cycling, skate-boarding and even table tennis, cheer on some of the fittest Hong Kongers in town and meet the one and only Arnold Schwarzenegger as he makes holds his very own own seminar! Pssst… we may have caught wind of a rumour making it’s way around town that the man himself may also be attending the after party at Lily & Bloom! Fingers crossed!

When: Friday, 19 August – Sunday, 21 August. The after party will take place on Sunday from 7pm.
Where: AsiaWorld-Expo, Cheong Wing Road, Chek Lap Kok, Hong Kong
How much: From $250 for a two-day ticket, buy yours here. Don’t forget to snap up a ticket to the after party here for $200, inclusive of one welcome cocktail!
