Parties & PlayPost Category - Parties & PlayParties & Play
We’re back! The Christmas tree and mulled wine has been stashed away for another year… yet there’s still plenty to get us mamas and our littlies busy for the start of 2012. Let’s hope the new year’s a good one – and here’s the very first Weekender of 2012 to kick things off!

A teatime treat!
The much-loved children’s poem, The Tiger Who Came To Tea, is being brought to life for the stage and is bound to go down a treat with littlies. So join everyone’s favourite tea-guzzling tiger for a show packed with sing-along songs, charming chaos and that little sprinkling of theatrical magic!

When: 10 & 12 January, 5pm
How much: $195-395,, 3128 8288

Bring fairy tales to life
Paper Tales is an awe-inspiring exhibition of complex paper-cutting and book-carving by local artists and students inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s The Snow Queen. Several stunning art-works – all made out of paper – will take you on a magical journey to a mysterious icy world straight from the pages of a fairy tale, complete with music and special lighting. There’s also a DIY ornament-making workshop to create your own paper crafts too.

When: Until 20 January, 10am-8pm

Chocoholics anonymous!
Still in an indulgent mood post-Christmas? Well, The Ritz-Carlton has got a decadent little treat up its sleeve – and it involves chocolate… lots of it! Café 103 has lined up a special chocolate-tasting experience together with Valrhona where you get to enjoy three different varieties of the stuff (Tainori, Manjari and Guanaja) in three different forms (a pure chocolate piece, a ganache and a mini tart). We’re reckoning they’re probably all equally delicious too.

1 Austin Road West, Kowloon, Hong Kong, 2263 2270
When: From 9 January, 3-6pm (Monday-Saturday) and 2-9pm (Sunday)

Got to dance
The HK Children’s Choir’s annual Dance Gala is set to see in 2012 with some pirouettes and a few high kicks! There will be special performances celebrating the 2012 London Olympics, traditional Chinese dance and excerpts from the ballet Coppelia, so it’s certain to be a wonderful show for the whole family. Just don’t blame us if your littlie wants to be signed up to a dance class pronto afterwards!
