GLTA Tennis Tournament is a Huge Success! Out in Hong Kong Open 2017

December 6, 2017

 

Hong Kong just hosted its first ever GLTA sanctioned International Gay and Lesbian Tennis Alliance Tournament! Both ultra successful and fun, the Out in Hong Kong Open 2017 tournament (#oihkopen2017) was organized by Out in HK, the same group behind the successful bid for Gay Games Hong Kong 2022. We are very honored to be a part of the GLTA World Tour and it was truly a pleasure to meet so many wonderful players from all over the world that share our love & passion for tennis. Thank you! We hope that Hong Kong will once again find a place on GLTA’s 2018 schedule, so that we can welcome many more players in the upcoming years!

 

Running from Fri, 2017-11-24 to Sun, 2017-11-26 the Out in Hong Kong Open 2017 tournament was professionally organized by Alex Roberts, Daniel Ou, Andrew Matheson, and Roddick Leung.  There was no stone left unturned to make this event simply outstanding: from ensuring that players have the best facilities such as the renovated locker rooms at Tai Po Sports Ground, to coordinating matches and evening entertainment. There were also on-site physiotherapist’s on-site at the tournament to provide free physiotherapy consults, handy tips and strapping to all players at the Out in Hong Kong Open 2017. Big thanks to Kenny Tang and Eric Fung for their services!

“So long, my Hong Kong brothers & sisters!!! Thank you all for your hospitality. I’ve made some great friends at the event and it has been a great experience. ‘Out in HK Open’ is definitely one of the best GLTA tournaments I’ve ever participated in. Keep up the great work!!!. Now it’s time to return to SF (San Francisco). See you all very soon!!” – Out in Hong Kong Open 2017 participant

Scan Pork for the Holidays– Delicious and Healthy!

December 6, 2017

 

Whether you serve it for Christmas dinner or just a winter weeknight, Scan’s delicious flower-fed pork is both tender and tasty– impressing both dinner guests and your family has never been so easy! Scan firmly believes that healthy eating does not have to be boring, bland or repetitive. With Scan’s flower-fed pork, you can enjoy tender, succulent meat while also benefiting from a boost in essential omega-3 fatty acids. And there are so many ways to enjoy pork! You can marinate it, roast it, or have it grilled, skewered, dry-rubbed, boiled, baked, barbecued, pan-fried or stir-fried. Below we’ve included a meat recipe for an elegant dinner party dish which is easy to prepare: Mustard Pork Fillet with Herb Aioli

 

You may not realize it, but pork tenderloin (especially Scan’s Omega-3 pork) is actually very healthy in addition to being tasty. Pork tenderloin is an delicious source of lean protein– a 3-ounce serving contains only 93 calories and 17.8 grams of protein, amongst other nutritional benefits.

Mustard Pork Fillet with Herb Aioli

 

Ingredients

1kg Scan pork tenderloin

3 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp Dijon mustard

1 bunch tarragon , chopped

200g jar good-quality mayonnaise

1 garlic clove, crushed

Zest and juice of 1 lemon

 

Directions

Heat oven to 180C

 

Rub the pork with a tbsp of oil, add salt and pepper to taste, then sear the outside of the meat on all sides in a hot frying pan.

 

Transfer the pork to a baking sheet, brush the outside with the mustard, then press on half of the tarragon and cook for 20 mins. Remove from the oven and cover with foil for 5 mins.

 

To make the aioli, mix the mayo, garlic, lemon zest and juice and remaining tarragon with salt and pepper to taste, then set aside. Slice the pork into thick slices and serve on a platter with a bowl of aioli to dip into and your family’s favorite side dishes.

 

Scan’s flower-fed Omega 3 pork relies on the principles of Nordic farming methods and is 100% natural and 100% free of antibiotics. Nordic farming methods are specifically designed animal farming methodologies which guarantee the highest and purest quality of the pork meat. Be sure to stop by local Hong Kong PARKnSHOP’s this weekend to try Scan’s delicious, juicy and tender pork– follow Scan on Facebook for updates on specific location details.

Asian Youth Orchestra: The Incredible and Versatile Flute

December 6, 2017

The Asian Youth Orchestra 2018 Auditions are now open for registration. Aspiring musicians do not miss this exciting opportunity to join #AYOHK in their annual three-week international concert tour with celebrated conductors and solo artists! Click here for details.

 

Hailing from the woodwind family, the flute is one of the oldest instruments around, and one of the most diverse. With practice and knowledge, you can master this amazingly versatile musical instrument.  The flute didn’t always look the way it does now, it used to be made out of wood. Once Theobald Boehm crafted the first flute out of silver in 1830, composers started taking notice of the revolutionary new sound. Since then the flute has been crucial to the progression of classical music, becoming one of the dominant solo instruments in classical music today.

 

Here are three reasons why the flute is one of the most popular instruments amongst musicians:

Versatility

While flutes are perfectly at home in the orchestra, you can also find them quite frequently played in jazz, folk, and world music. So, whether you dream of being a part of a famous orchestra or in a jazz band, the flute is perfect for you. If you love the bond you create with your flute, it might even get you a ticket into the Asian Youth Orchestra!

 

If you aren’t a performer that’s okay too. The flute is the perfect way to step away from work to relax and play music for yourself.

 

Easy Maintenance and Portability

Another great feature of the flute is that it’s convenient to transport since it doesn’t require much space. If you’re traveling with it, you don’t have to buy it an extra seat on a plane!

The flute is also easy to maintain– no worries about reeds, temperature, or humidity. Simply assemble it together, and you’re ready to play!

 

Exercise Your Brain

Playing the flute is a great way to give your brain a workout, through reading music, listening, playing and developing fine motor skills.

If you already enjoy singing, and can read music, you’ll likely find the flute even easier to pick up. Flutists breathe exactly how vocalists breathe, and require the same type of air support to create good sounds.

 

Be sure to set aside time next year to enjoy the Asian Youth Orchestra’s summer festival or global concerts and have your mind blown away! This year, the Summer Festival will be held in Hong Kong from 14 July to 3 August 2018. Performances in Beijing, Shanghai, Suzhou, Jiangsu, Xian, Hong Kong, Taipei, Chiayi City and Tokyo will be held from 3 to 26 August 2018. Stay updated by following us on Facebook, you can also see the updated 2018 Tour Schedule here.

GGHK2022 Dennis Philipse Speaks at the Business of Sport Network Celebration Event

December 6, 2017

 

Dennis Philipse, chairman of Gay Games Hong Kong 2022 at the Business of Sport Network’s celebration delivers a powerful and insightful description of the Gay Games and why they are vital for everyone and why Hong Kong is the place hold them in 2022. The transcript is also included below for your assistance.

 

Video: https://www.facebook.com/GayGamesHK2022/videos/2031049543783036/

 

Information on the Gay Games, one and a half years ago we started the process. Now not everybody knows what is the Gay Games, the Gay Games started in 1982, it’s the first festival organized by the LGBT+ community– that means Lesbian, Gay Bisexual and Transgender, which is open to everybody to participate. So you don’t have to be gay or lesbian to participate. Participating in the Gay Games does not depend on your sexual orientation, age, gender, or disability. It has never been in Asia, 2002 was in Sydney, Australia and the last Gay Games was in Cleveland, Ohio USA in 2014. Next Gay Games will be in Paris in August 2018. So after we reached out to the Federation of Gay Games one and a half years ago, we had to produce this diversity step (Holds up Gay Games Hong Kong 2022 Bid Book) as part of the process. A big Thank You to a couple of our supporters who are here, who were a big part of helping put this together. So a couple of people have been helping us to bring this 300 page book together, it describes all the 36 sports, the 9 day festival which we’re going to plan for 2022.

Why do we need the Gay Games here? That’s a very good question. Being LGBT+ in Asia is for lots of people still a challenge. For lots of people its very difficult to be themselves, and bringing the Gay Games here will be the first type of opportunity to come to a big sporting event to make friendships, build lighthouses and people can be themselves. It’s also a great opportunity for non-LGBT+ people, allies, to come together, enjoy this 9 day festival of sports, arts and culture. It will be in Hong Kong, it will be a 9 day festival as I said, opening in Hong Kong stadium on the Kai Tak, if it’s open. And the 36 sports, including Dragon Boat Racing, Tower Running on the ICC on the 110 floors up, and of course trail running because Hong Kong has amazing trails to run on. Of course it’s going to include Rugby, lots of swimming, rowing–  the rowing association, also the yacht club is included, so we have lots of support already from lots of local organizations.

Many people have asked me about the government, let me answer directly so we cover that topic. We have had several meetings during the bid process with the Hong Kong Government, the Home Affairs Bureau, and they have been supportive as they have been with any other sports organization. As part of the bid process in June, we had a three day site inspection by five inspectors, and they inspected all the 40 planned venues. And at every venue the LCSD (Leisure and Cultural Services Department) manager was there, said hello to the team, shook hands and showed everyone around. And of course everyone was really impressed by the quality of the venues, so that is why we have won this bid. (Claps and cheers)

Also the Hong Kong Tourism Board, and the Equal Opportunities Commision is driving and helping us behind the scenes. Last but not least, I want to give a big Thank You to the team of all volunteers– yes we are all volunteers at this stage, it’s about a team of 40 volunteers, we have all been working together for the last one and a half years day and night. Big thank you!  I see about four or five others out here, so big thank you for all the hard work!

For the next 5 years, how can you help? Maybe that’s a good question as well. The first year is focused on setting up all fundamentals, promoting #Paris2018 (Gay Games Paris 2018). Because we want to bring as many sport athletes to Paris in August, and then after that we’re going to work on the sponsorship, planning the sports and planning the venues and making sure this is going to be a great festival in five years time. Any Questions?

Next Steps? Next step is our final license agreement between the Federation of Gay Games and the Gay Games Hong Kong 2022 which needs to be signed end of January. We will keep you updated about the events we are going to organize around that and in between we’re also working on getting the final planning in place and working and continuing on our conversation with the Hong Kong government. (from the crowd: “and sponsors”) And Sponsors! (Laughs and Cheers) Any other questions? End video
