With Christmas coming up this weekend, this week’s cheat sheet is particularly useful. While you’re anticipating the festive feasting, drinking and revelling at the many Christmas parties around town, find out the booze you should be sipping on with our Macallan whisky guide.

We’ve also got your back with ideas for (very) last minute gifts, so you don’t stress yourself out too much before the holidays. If you choose to have a peaceful weekend away from the crazy parties, check out our interview with Paul Longworth of Rhubarb Le Restaurant on charming Duxton Hill, and daydream about taking in awe-inspiring views from your own private yacht. With that, our team at Lifestyle Asia wishes you a Merry Christmas!
