mushroom is having a great time for sure.
Before dinner last night, I visited the John Lobb shoe-shine chair at the Mandarin Oriental. The chair is one of only four in the world, and is the only one in Hong Kong. It was designed by interior designer Rena Dumas with wood and Hermes buffalo leather. A 15-minute John Lobb shoe-shine service is offered for HKD150 together with a cup of coffee, and is available to both hotel guests and visitors.
If you just want to take a photo, it is free of charge.
Let's go upstairs for dinner with MCC and designer ginny (right).
One round of my favourite cocktail, the Bellini.
How do you like my dessert, the Banana Split with a difference, created by the Mandarin Grill's talented Chef Uwe. There was vanilla ice cream in one banana. Strawberry mousse and banana mousse inside the other two respectively. The skin was made of chocolate.
Edible cigars and ashtray petits fours for MCC.
Yummy food and bags
Thanks for telling us the story of the chair for shoe-polishing at the Mandarin Oriental.
Interesting story about the chair, love the banana split, it looked very tasty. Thanks for sharing!
