Trending Mobile Shoppers Are on the Rise

August 9, 2017

 

If you compare the last five years to any other given period of time about the purchasing patterns of customers, you will not find many similarities- if any! Prosperity Research Digital Agency, also known as PRDA, is the leading social media agency in Asia. It has been in the business for more than 10 years and provides a complete solution for all your Social Media Management. They provide services such as SEM, SEO, Social CRM, Risk Management, Lead Generation and much more.  And right now, it is evident to the experts at PRDA that Millennials are, and have been, completely changing the retail world- which is developing insanely fast, partially because of the rapid advancement of technology but also because of  out of the box ideas.

How Are Trends Changing?

Twenty years ago the only way of buying certain items was by going to the store with your feet, pulling out your wallet- with paper money- and purchasing. But  things are quite different nowadays. Just as transactions have vastly changed, traditional marketing is quickly getting replaced by digital marketing, and even though that is not the topic of the article, it does prove to be a vital instrument in gathering and measuring your target audience’s data.

Mobile shopping is the rising trend and many retailers are rushing to produce mobile applications in order to satisfy their customers needs, as desktop shopping is slowly losing ground.  As with every new thing, consumers need time to fully feel comfortable with the change to mobile shopping apps. The public does not like change, but always adapts naturally over the course of time.

Facebook Is Getting Ahead of the Competition

While Google was the pioneer of digital ads and managed to turn them into an insanely profitable business by constantly renovating them and bringing out new looks and features, Facebook is looking to sweep up the mobile retail market by implementing new product video ads.

Airbnb is an early adopter of the new dynamic video ads by Facebook, stating that “they are aware that traveling to new locations is not a decision made by a single person in the household but rather by the majority”, and video ads on Facebook seem the best way to attract their target audience.

Prosperity Research Digital Agency(PRDA)  provides weekly content creation catered to your company, in English, Traditional and Simplified Chinese. Their proven data driven process delivers predictable results driven by organic, real people action. Try PRDA’s Free Facebook Report and Competitor Analysis here.

Lion’s Head Meatball made with Premium Nordic Pork

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground Scan pork belly (440g) (find at “Taste” ParknShop’s throughout Hong Kong)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp Shao Hsing Rice Wine
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp light soy sauce
  • 1 tbsp dark soy sauce
  • 1 tsp sesame oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 2 tsp potato or corn starch
  • 1 spring onion
  • 1 tbsp ginger
  • 1 cup Shao Hsing Rice Wine
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 10 baby bok choy

 

Directions:

Heat your wok up to medium high, then add 1 tbsp oil to your hot wok. Quickly form the pork mixture into 3 large meatballs and carefully fry each side till golden brown- on all sides! The key here is a nicely browned meatball on every side. You can use a splash more oil if needed, but be careful.

Now, toss in your spring onion and ginger and stir fry for about 15 seconds, then add 1 cup Shao Hsing Rice Wine and your chicken broth. (Make sure the liquid fully covers your meatballs, add more stock if necessary.)

Bring to a boil, then cover your pot, lower your heat to the lowest setting possible and cook covered for an hour. Check/stir occasionally and top up stock if needed. Ten minutes before your amazing (it smells absolutely scrumptious, doesn’t it!?) Lionhead Meatballs are done, add your bok choy and then recover cover your pot.

Serve hot.

The key to this extraordinary Chinese meatball’s yumminess is in it’s wonderful fluffiness, and of course using the best ingredients, like Scan’s delicious pork belly. Tender tasty almost falling apart lusciousness in every bite. If you follow our recipe correctly. you will have the most incredibly light, tasty and fluffy meatballs imaginable.

Gourmet Skin Bar: Traditional Chinese Medicine Beauty Secrets

August 9, 2017

 

 

The local culture in Hong Kong relies significantly on the vast wealth of knowledge that is Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) when it comes to health and wellness. The experts at Gourmet Skin Bar, Hong Kong’s Luxury Organic Beauty Boutique, have rounded up some time-tested TCM beauty secrets with easy to follow recipes that are sure to make your skin glow from the inside out!

Pearl Powder Revitalizing Beauty Mask

This beauty mask is wonderful for soothing skin inflammation and redness, as pearl powder is very rich in amino acids. It also detoxifies and simulates your skin- slowing down the aging process. It might sound unbelievable, but Chinese women have been using it for centuries, and it is quite easy to make, granting your skin with new life.

 

Ingredients Needed

  • One tablespoon of pearl powder
  • Half of a tablespoon of raw honey(local is best!)
  • One egg yolk

 

Directions:

Whisk all the ingredients together in a bowl until you reach a consistency in the color. Apply the mixture on your face and leave it on for 20 minutes. Rinse off with warm water.

Repeat the mask 1-2 times a week for best effects.

Calm Your Skin with Mung Bean Soup

 

Mung beans remove toxins from your skin and cool your whole body down, especially the blood. Consuming a bowl of a mung bean soup can help different conditions such as rashes, acne, cold sores and so on, from developing or decline the impact of existing ones.

 

Ingredients Needed

  • Five hundred milliliters of filtered water
  • One handful of dried Mung beans
  • One tablespoon of honey (to taste)

 

Directions:

First of all, rinse the beans well. Then in a pan, bring the water and the beans to a boil. Let them simmer for about fifteen minutes- till they open up. If you prefer sweeter taste, add the honey, otherwise, you could consume it without sweetener.

 

Your skin needs special care and attention! Bringing you the healthiest choice for skincare and beauty products, Gourmet Skin Bar wants to make you feel loved in your own skin. Our philosophy is “love your skin, cherish life, and protect the planet”. Gourmet Skin Bar always provides natural, organic, chemical-free skincare products and cosmetics to bring out the best in your skin.

Napue Gin: Party Planning Tips

August 9, 2017

 

 

Being a hostess can be hard work. This list of party planning tips from Food Linkers, who’ve brought international delights, like Napue Gin, to Hong Kong will help smooth the organisational process and enable you to plan your next event stress-free!

Have you tasted the delight that is Napue Gin yet? You must! Napue Gin is a full bodied spirit with a herbal sweet taste and hints of sea-buckthorn, cranberries, pepper, rye and birch leaves. All of these ingredients along with the low northern sun and length of day in the Finnish summer creates a special intensity of flavor in the wild botanicals. Definitely an amazing spirit to serve at any party or event!

 

But, let’s get back to our original topic- party planning tips! Read on:

Planning

The earlier you start planning your event, the easier it will be for you to create a memorable atmosphere and experience for all attendees. Make yourself a thorough, detailed list of everything that needs to be done. Figure out how many days you have until the event and start assigning each task a completion date. Don’t try to do three days worth of work in in one day- that’s not productive or healthy for your stress levels.

 

Guest List

The guest list is probably the most important factor for any event. It’s not just number of people invited and attending- you need to have a clear vision of the type of event and who will be there. Will it be an intimate gathering or a huge Hollywood-like party?  This will help you get an idea of what all needs to be done; will only drinks and appetisers be served or are you hosting a full sit-down dinner?

All of this being said makes sure that your invites are sent with plenty of time for people to respond and add your event to their busy schedules. Sending an email invitation has become acceptable for all but the most formal of events.

‘Napue Green Salad’ – fresh bay leaf, thyme, tarragon & Napue Gin from FINDS

 

Yummy Party Drinks

Set your event apart by planning a few special party drinks for your guests. We always recommend at least 2 different cocktails planned ahead of time, incase your guests have any dietary concerns or allergies. You can Jazz Up your Tea and Coffee beverages with these recipes(click here) or enjoy this refreshing Cucumber and Lime Napue Gin Cocktail recipe(click here).

 

You can order Napue Gin online at from either HK Liquor Store or The Tramline Liquor Co and create the above recipes at home- impressing friends and colleagues! Or find Napue Gin at several bars and restaurants across Hong Kong(Ozone Bar, Dr. Fern’s Gin Parlour, The Pawn, Lilya, The Iron Fairies, Ophelia, Aberdeen Street Social, Brickhouse, MyHouse, FINDS).

Yoga Tips for Beginners

August 9, 2017

 

 

At last, you have decided to take upon the long journey and experience of yoga. Cool, comfy clothing is a must and here to help is A Day with Fé; creator of a unique line of lovely, comfy and inspiring activewear designed for active individuals!

 

Countless times have the benefits of yoga been proved through scientific studies. There is a reason many successful, famous people have yoga as a part of their daily routines. That being said yoga can be challenging for any beginner, therefore we have taken it upon ourselves to create a list of tips which will improve your overall experience and enable you to improve your yoga skills on a daily basis.

Take A Yoga Class; seek out technique tips from an expert

  • Many people try to practice yoga in their home, even though they have never tried it before. They don’t know the movements, or the breathing techniques or anything regarding the topic. Reading a few books and going through videos on YouTube are not enough to gain the required grasp of fundamental concepts necessary to practice yoga.  A professional yoga teacher is there to help you along the path. He or she will know the breathing techniques, the poses and the equipment needed to make your experience as enjoyable and as productive as possible.

 

Choose a Style Before Entering a Class

  • That being said, you must first choose a particular yoga class to attend. Ever since yoga became popular in the western world, the variety of different yoga styles is practically endless, there are yoga types that are quite dynamic, there are those that are exercised in a sauna, there are those practiced in water and so on. Choose the type of yoga that you think would best suit you and find a beginner’s class to attend afterwards. You could always go to a few sessions in different styles to try them out and find the version that fits your personality best!

Don’t  Stress Out

  • Always keep in mind that you are a beginner, you just need time!  Yoga is not a competition, it’s a personal experience meant to improve a person and help them achieve peace of mind, fitness and a whole host of wonderful benefits.

 

Invest in Quality

  • Investing in quality yoga clothing and yoga mats may sound unnecessary, but it actually makes the overall experience so much better! You’ll be able to concentrate on the movements, holding your poses so much better without any embarrassing “wardrobe malfunctions”, in quality athleisure!

Whether you are wearing A Day with Fé pieces for your yoga practice, daily whereabouts or travel- the hidden mantras will keep you in tune with your practice, powerful words to inspire you in your daily life.
