16 November, 2012

Get ready for a lively weekend – whether it’s the outdoor carnivals bringing some colour into your life, or the vibrant displays of art indoors… we’ve got it all covered in this week’s Weekender!

Lose some inches!
Looking to get in shape for holiday season? Have a killer dress ready to bust out for all those Christmas parties? Well, if you’re looking to drop a few pounds quickly and easily, how about the Cambridge Weight Plan? We tried and tested their three-week Quick Fix option of special shakes and soups to lose a few extra inches – and we were amazed at the results. Check out our full write-up here… and the chocolate mint shakes are scrumptious!

Street party!
It’s time for the awesome annual block party that is the Lan Kwai Fong Street Carnival! For the ultimate outdoor party atmosphere, grab your friends for a feast of food and drink on the streets (who’s up for a spicy pizza eating contest?!) and check out the live music, arts and crafts stalls, martial arts performers and hot Brazilian dancers for the biggest all-day all-night party in town!

When: 17 November, 1pm-1am; 18 November, 1-10pm
Where: Lan Kwai Fong, Central, Hong Kong
How much: Free!

Expect to be dazzled by the vibrant parade costumes, giant colourful puppets and stalls full of arts and crafts – all with a fun circus twist for this year. The highlight? A massive parade on Sunday snaking into the streets of Causeway Bay, with over 600 people dressed in magnificent Mardi Gras costumes – you might even find yourself trying to join in!
