What’s on this weekend…
We know that with all of these random cold patches it can be hard to believe that summer is on its way (despite all our weekly promises!), but it honestly won’t be much longer until our diaries are weighed down with weekend beach plans and journeys out to sea. So lets take advantage of what’s on offer in the run up to Easter and immerse yourself in Hong Kong’s Art Month, have a great burger, do your bit for the earth and get on to a little spring cleaning for a great cause!
Art Week is coming up, and Lan Kwai Fong Group is hosting “Savouring Art Week” to celebrate.

In light of International Women’s Day last week, we’re spreading the word about a worthy cause that helps underprivileged women in need. Lingerie company Sheer are having their 4th annual bra drive, where they’ll be collecting old bras and sending them to women in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Thailand as well as here in Hong Kong. Teaming up with local and global organisations such as HAGAR International, Pathfinders and AFESIP, the drive has collected over 4,000 bras since 2013. The bras are sent to victims of sex trafficking, crisis pregnancies, refugee status or poverty, so show your support, ladies, and clear out any unused bras in your closet.
When: Friday, 18 March – Thursday, 31 March
Where: Donate your old and unused bras to one of these collection points in Hong Kong.
