We are excited to announce the Winners of the 2011 Sassy Awards! We love the Sassy Awards because we know that our opinions can only go so far and we think it is so important to know which spots you think are the best in Hong Kong.
From the high to the low end, from splurges to bargains, you told us what you love about the Hong Kong businesses that you rely on to keep you happy, beautiful, well fed and feeling sassy. We even discovered some new places we need to try out ourselves so thanks in advance for the great tips!
Just like last year you amazed us with your responses and we like to think that the winners are the best of the best as you are the ones who actually eat their food, sip their cocktails, work out in their gyms and get pampered at their salons.
