2020 has been a trying year for us all — with travel plans and big celebrations thrown out the window — but it was also a time where we re-examined our lives and found new ways to connect with our loved ones. Now that a new calendar year has turned, it’s time to find renewed vigour for leisure.
Make 2021 about living THE GOOD LIFE and Sky Premium is more than equipped to be your guide.
The prestige services club aims to enrich the lives of its members with experiences and services across the Four Pillars of Good Living – Wine & Dine, Travel, Wellness and Shopping –, curated by an expert panel of tastemakers and advisors.
Last December, Lifestyle Asia was proud to collaborate with Sky Premium as we jointly held a Virtual Christmas Vacation. This By-Invite-Only webinar event conducted during dinner brought our readers as well as its existing Sky Premium members on a culinary journey to Hong Kong, unveiled only on the day itself via a boarding pass.
The hour-long event was hosted by Allan Wu, Sky Premium’s Lifestyle Ambassador, starting off with a virtual flight and tour of Four Seasons Hotel Hong Kong. Just before guests tucked into the three-course dinner, Masterchef Chung Lap Fai from Orchard Hotel’s award-winning Hua Ting Restaurant — who hails from Hong Kong originally — gave an introduction. That was followed by a wine pairing masterclass by sommelier Chek Wong.
Dinner itself was a luxurious treat, presented in a bento box that was equal parts beautiful and delicious, and elevated by a wine and sake pairing courtesy of Chin Chin SG and Marco’s Cellar. The trio of starters showcased Hua Ting’s dim sum specialities and that included its Signature Baked Chicken and Mango Tart, the Steamed Pork Dumpling with Prawn and Scallop as well as the Turnip Cake with Dried Scallop. This was paired with the Catalina Sounds Sauvignon Blanc 2018 which landed fresh and zingy on the palate, and opened the tastebuds for more treats to come.
The second course of Baked Sea Perch highlighted the chef’s specialty sauce while the ice plant added an umami lift to the entire meal. The Catalina Sounds Pinot Noir 2017 for the wine pairing brought out the ensemble’s brininess by way of its strong red and dark berry fruity notes.
The third course, Braised Inaniwa Noodles, were served with roasted duck in X.O sauce meanwhile struck a different note. Unlike the first two courses, this part of the meal was Japanese-inspired and was fittingly paired with the Koshihikari-Junmai sake which ended the meal with a fresh banana-like scent.
The official sponsors Chin Chin SG and Marco’s Cellar are both wine authorities — the former carries over 500 quality labels while the latter specialises in handpicked wines with over 90 years of history.
