This is the wallpaper on my phone right now and it sparked a cute conversation.

George the AT&T guy: is that your niece or daughter?
Me: *a bit sheepishly* No, she’s my favorite model…
George: Oh! Well she’s super cute!

Thank you for not judging me as so many others have, George.

1989 Tour Shanghai (10 Nov 2015) 
Meet & Greet Experience

首先好多謝 Keds 既香港marketing公司贊助, 我地fan club既兩位admin同得獎既兩位fans先有機會去上海坐vip area近距離欣賞Taylor既演出! 而本人更加有機會去Meet&Greet! 我終於可以親口同Taylor講香港Swifties幾咁想佢再黎香港!

好多人問我地設計對Keds結果有冇送到比Taylor。其實上海Meet&Greet既規矩好嚴, fans唔可以直接送禮物比Taylor, 亦唔可以用自己相機影相, 每人只可以比工作人員幫你影一張合照。禮物只可以放係出面話會有staff收集再比Taylor。

係短短唔夠一分鐘既Meet&Greet, 我已經盡量爭取機會同Taylor講野 (因為前面既人好似冇咩點同Taylor講野, 影完相就走)。其實要講既都講左, 但佢會唔會放係心/真係收到d禮物再逐件睇, 就好難講, 始終佢每日都見咁多fans…..🙈

以下係我地見面既對話, 大致上係咁:
==============
Taylor: Hi!
Me: Hong Kong loves you!
(Walking towards Taylor, then she hugged me)
We’ve been waiting for you for a very long time, like many years! And we’ve designed a pair of Keds for you!
Taylor: (Smiling) Really?
Me: I’ll leave it out there. You must see it! Must see!
Taylor: Can I take a picture with you?
Me: Sure!
==============

Taylor真人塊面好細 (定係個頭細😂), 同埋佢著平底鞋所以冇想像中咁高。
點都好, 真係要再一次多謝Keds, 令我地夢想成真!
— Tracey (Owner&Admin)


I am going to write a brief translation here:)

So basically our admins got one M&G pass and two front row tickets from Keds. Our admins Tracey and Jessica flew to Shanghai to see the 1989 World Tour! Before the show, Tracey had a M&G session with Taylor. We actually prepared a gift for Taylor. It was a pair of Keds designed by TSHK admins. As the policy of M&G was very strict, she could only pass the gift to the staff. The M&G only lasted for a minute, but It was a dream come true for Tracey! Taylor doesn’t look tall in the picture because she wasn’t wearing heels.

@taylorswift thank you for meeting Tracey! I’ve known her since the Speak Now era. Hong Kong swifties are all waiting for you to come back!

This is the gift we gave to Taylor:

TAP: The Ale Project, Hong Kong

I’ll just come out and say it… TAP: The Ale Project in Mongkok is one of the best beer bars I have ever been to!

From the design, to the service, to the beer selection, to the food… oh, the food… I adore everything about this place…

They even use Kylo Ren and Rey on their bathroom doors!

They run 18 taps of craft beer, which rotate weekly as kegs run out and new ones come in, with half of the menu dedicated to local Hong Kong brewers…

I went with a flight, or “beer platter” as it’s known at TAP…

I was going to stick with all local brews, but the manager, Keith, said I really needed to try the Venusian Pale Ale from Garage Project in New Zealand. Brewed with lemongrass, kaffir line leaf, grapefruit peel and something called “Venusian spear fungus”, it turned out to be my favorite beer of the day!

Now, about their incredible menu…

The chef here at TAP takes his inspiration from British and American pub grub, but turns traditional snacks and sandwiches on their ear using local Chinese ingredients and techniques. The result is magical! Here’s a look…

Lap cheong schmear on house baked beer bread…

He makes his pate with local duck livers then blends in Chinese lap cheong sausage, topped with puffed rice and chives…

The bread was so good I would eat it plain, but the schmear was out of this world!

Crispy Asian spiced chicken wings…

But instead of blue cheese or ranch, chef pairs them with a funky fermented tofu dip…

Then there was this magic the Toasted Gai, a cross between kaya toast and chicken & waffles…

Thick sourdough French toast topped with fried chicken thigh and butter, with a malted barley syrup! And I have to say, it was one of the best pieces of fried chicken I think I have EVER eaten! Definite top five worldwide!! Seriously.

Closed with a the Siu Yuk Cubano…

Pressed ciabatta stuffed with house roasted siu yak pork, sweet ham, cheddar, chicharron, hoisin mustard and Chinese pickles! Another winner…

And for “dessert”, it was a glass of Young Master’s Hong Kong Black…

I was just so utterly impressed by what these guys are doing, combining their love of beers and bars with their cultural culinary heritage in inventive and original ways. I will be back every visit to Hong Kong!!
