Hermès | Festive Flânerie


As the name suggests, it was like a woodland wonderland waiting for one to explore what's in there. Held at the Hong Kong Museum of Medical Sciences, music playing, magicians performing along the way, the tour around the sight itself was spectacular. 

Entrance & Canape Section 

Walking right into the first room, was a massive fresh fruit and vegetable garden. All eatable from the apple tree hanging down from the ceiling, as well as grapes from the vines on the wall and of course, the round center piece. Reminded me of Willy Wonka's room filled with all eatable sweets and chocolate. Healthier option here of course! On top of that, I wonder how many carrots I've had and pulled off a bucks bunny accent. 


Chemistry : Fresh Fruit Juices
Pumpkin, Corn, Beet Root, Spinach, Tomato and Chestnut




Cocktails and canapes with impeccable details, texture and taste. 

It was great to have so many different types of cocktails to try in shot glasses. Getting to try many different types was definitely a treat! My favorite of all was : Blueberry Grappa 

For some people, it may seem weird to eat off lookalike soil. 
Don't worry, it was chocolate biscuits. 



Happiest place in the world.
Balloons, Swings and Cloud Nine.
