Happy Friday, mamas! Welcome to another edition of the Weekly Dish with what’s hot in the 852…
Sai Kung Returns!
Sai Kung Markets are celebrating their 1st anniversary! On 1 March, the Sai Kung Sunday Market will be back and better than ever, with a mix of great vendors catering to mums, kids and everyone in-between! There will be plenty to splash on including handmade kids’ clothing and vintage jewellery, as well as plenty to fill those tummies with hot dog and bagel vendors, locally homegrown veggies and for the mamas… plenty of wine! The market runs from 11am-5pm, so grab the troupe and head over for an afternoon of fun and feasting in the (hopefully) sunny weather! Check out all the deets here.
All About Science
If you have a budding Einstein at home, this is an event you won’t want to miss! The British Council is once again hosting its Science Alive programme, with this year’s theme being ‘Chemistry – why does it matter’? The programme includes family days with drop-in activities, science drama shows, family workshops, interactive lectures, teacher development workshops and school tour science drama shows – all free of charge! Join the fun during 7-20 March – it’s time to create some ‘chemistry’! Click here for more details!
Hong Kong Science Museum, 2 Science Museum Road, Tsim Sha Tsui East, Hong Kong
One of our favourites brands Mischa is hosting a special ‘Cabinet of Curiosities’ pop-up, and we can’t wait to get a sneak peek! Located at kapok PMQ, the pop-up shop will resemble a cross between a conservatory and a dusty antique shop, and will display a cool range of travel accessories including Australian resort wear Vamastyle, original calligraphy prints by The Letter J Supply and organic handwoven Turkish towels from The Fabulous Towel Company. What can you expect from Mischa? A pair of limited edition candles, as well as two new designs from their collection, including a Mini CDG Pouch and a Demi Cardholder – available exclusively at the pop-up!
Don’t Miss Event:
Shakespeare in the Port
On 16 April to 3 May, The Tempest, King Lear and A Midsummer Night’s Dream will be hitting Hong Kong as part of Shakespeare in the Port, Hong Kong’s only outdoor theatre festival! If you missed it last year, this is a spectacular event for theatre geeks (and those just looking for something new to do on the weekends!), but it won’t happen unless you get involved! There are two weeks left for Shakespeare’s crowdfunding campaign, and every donation matters in keeping this event local and sustainable (and free for kids)! How can you help? Tweet, Facebook or Instagram the crowdfunding campaign and if you’re going to buy a ticket, buy it ahead of time via the campaign! You can now purchase tickets at up to 60% off – just jump on here to get started! Onsale via Ticketflap in March, regular priced tickets range from 100-250, with special packages available including F&B and opening/closing night parties.
