Best of 2012 Our Finest Stories of the Year

[21/12/12] 

It's been a big year. Olympics. Syria. More Euro gloom. The Death of Kim Jong-Il. Turmoil in Egypt. You get the picture. And we haven't even got to the Mayan Apocalypse. This could be our last ever email newsletter if the fates are right (South American time) so we're going to take the opportunity to share our best stories of 2012. The aliens might find this in our faint digital footprint in millennia to come.

We had a whale of a time at the recent opening of 22 Ships, a Wan Chai restaurant by Michelin-starred chef Jason Atherton, and were a little too excited by the release of Le Whaf, an incredible device which turns your cocktails into inhalable vapour. Other highlights included the arrival of liquid nitrogen ice cream as well as good value steaks, both available for the first time in our dining-mad city. It's quite surprising there aren't more fat people here.

We were equally chuffed to introduce a genuinely fashionable brand to the Hong Kong market, not to mention Squarestreet's 1,000 sneakers. Elsewhere, Angry Lane's custom motorbikes finally offer local hog-lovers an outlet for their mechanical lust, while the star-studded Sleeping Dogs video game puts HK on the gaming map. We also celebrated Hong Kong through the lens of renowned photographer Sam Gellman and discovered a creative social workspace in Wan Chai that's full of surprises.

A sexting app, indoor vertical garden service in HK and fishing off a South China Sea oil rig complete our annual folio. Farewell 2012.

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year. If we make it there.
