We’re all about celebrating our fabulous Hong Kong mamas this May!
It’s even better when you can make it a special day out with activities for the kids as well. We’ve got our eye on a lovely sunflower planting activity at K11 MUSEA or a Mother’s Day brunch followed by a Tesla driving experience for the kids at Lee Garden. We’re also trying to get active (before the summer heat sets in!) by signing up for the SENsational Foundation’s Walk For Equality. Why not continue to get your steps up while checking out the latest addition to HKWalls in Sai Kung or on an educational walking tour of the dried seafood markets in the Western District. Time to mark those calendars!
Editor’s Note: The situation in Hong Kong regarding closures and restrictions on opening hours due to the coronavirus is constantly evolving, so please call to check for any changes. Many businesses are taking extra precautions, but please make sure you follow the latest government advice and stay home if you have recently travelled overseas, have interacted with anyone who has been away, or display any symptoms.

Time to put on your favourite sneakers, because SENsational Foundation is hosting a walkathon to empower people with disabilities! To support the cause, simply create your own fundraising page, set a target and get walking (either by yourself or with a team). Apart from helping the community, this walkathon is also a great way to get a breath of fresh air and teach kids about those with disabilities. Looking for some extra motivation? Wear something fancy for a chance to win the best-dressed prize!
It’s no secret that as mamas we’re constantly rushing around Hong Kong’s bustling streets. Once in a while, it’s nice to have a reason to slow down and the annual HK Walls art and mural festival is the perfect excuse! In 2021 artists have taken to seaside Sai Kung and livened up local restaurants and shops all over town. We’re loving the inclusion of the HK Walls Youth Mentorship Programme which has teamed up three talented young artists to learn from some of Hong Kong’s finest.
Calling all budding Hong Kong drivers! Head over to Lee Gardens and combine your family lunch with a driving experience for your kids (aged 3 to 8 years old and 90cm to 135cm tall). We can’t wait to see t little ones get behind the wheel on the outdoor driving course. Just be sure to book your spot as places are limited and allocated on a first come first serve basis.
When: 1pm to 5pm, Saturday, 8 and 15 and Sunday, 9 and 16
