Making of Grimrock 2: New Portraits

August 16, 2013|
33 Comments

Couple of months ago we posted to our blog that we were looking for an artist that could help us create brand new portraits for the LoG2. We received tons of applications, 234 to be precise, and I went through all of them. One artist stood out pretty early on. He had just the right style we were looking for and his communication was great and with reasonable rates, it wasn’t that difficult to select him to do the work. So, without further ado, let me introduce Emile Denis to everybody. -Juho

Several months ago, I heard about The Legend of Grimrock via some websites and several reports on tv. I was immediately intrigued by this game with an old-school and Modern side. After testing it with a friend, I really enjoyed it!

Then, last April, a friend who works in the the video game industry sent me a link saying “hey look!, I saw this and thought you would be interested in it!”: It was an advertisement from Almost Human who was Looking for a freelance portrait artist for the Legend of Grimrock 2!

I didn’t think twice and immediately sent an email with my portfolio, then, after a few days, Juho Salila give me the definitive answer: I am selected! It’s such a pleasure since I love everything related to portraits and characters! I was even happier when Juho gave me as a reference the Baldur’s Gate’s portraits (one of my favorites games)!

So after receiving the brief, I started to work:
At first, I started with the “Human” race, keeping in mind the realistic style and the fantastic atmosphere of the game. By default, when I start an illustration or a concept, I gather a lot of documentation. In this case, since they are characters, I always start to think about the character in question: “What is his class?, is it old or young?, male or female?“, from there I like to imagine an actor or a famous person who could “impersonate” the character, just to get a clearer idea of the portrait. I always try to have at least two references (like two actors, for example) for each character to ensure that the resemblance will not be too flagrant in the end, and sometimes I use some photographic references in black and white or with a special light to give more life and volume to the portrait. From there, I started the first sketches always in black and white, then I set aside my references, I refine the drawing, and once it’s completed, I color them.

When I started working on the “Insectoids” race, the approach was a little more complex: As usual, I gather a lot of references, and then I tried to build portraits with great variety of different insects. Then, I finalized the illustrations by adding some textures and playing with the blending modes of Photoshop to find the scaly and rough effect of certain insects.
I still have a lot of work, and I know this will be truly rewarding and fun!

I would like to thank the whole team for choosing me and I look forward to seeing the final result ;)

    So was one of the actresses imagined for that human female Zooey Deschanel? :) It’s remarkably similar to how I used to draw faces too.
    The portraits are looking great. I totally took advantage of the custom portrait option in Grimrock1, mostly so I could recreate my EOB team :) but with the quality of these new ones, I think I may just stick to them. Keep up the great work.

  2. davec says:

    I just noticed the Beholder illustration on Emile’s web site. If maybe – just maybe – that sneaky little beholder might find his way into Grimrock 2, us older players might just go weak and the knees and have a little happy cry…(!!)

  3. Jack Dandy says:

    Awesome stuff! I really like the look of the insectoid. The ones in the first Grimrock just looked plain ol’ nasty so I didn’t pick them, but yours has a sort of majestic feeling about it. The exoskeleton does it, I guess. Heheheh

  4. thomson7 says:

    Great portraits. Seem AH made a good choice! :)

    I like all of them, except rat-man. Rogue is a master of agility and quick movement, so he should be more skinny. It is also interesting for insectoids – there are fat, muscular insects, but there are also very skinny as well. This particular one is a warrior, so it is natural that he is beefy.

  5. guillermojperea says:

    The new portraits are awesome, and they fit beautifully in the game’s aesthetics because they’re rather simple, not too shiny nor overdone.
    I also hope there are at least 20, and like someone else sort of suggested, make variations in complexity for each class, so that we can give our party the feel we like playing.
    I don’t like everything super bulky and hormonal, in fact that’s why i dislike the rat, it’s a bit off for that kind of animal.

    To recap, Emile, you’ve done some excellent work and well deserve being at Almost Human. Can’t wait to see more!

  6. Diarmuid says:

    Great work! Zooey Deschanel is one of my favorite actresses, so I don’t mind one sec… :)

  7. Jabberwok says:

    Great stuff. I really like the rat man, actually. I can understand the complaints, but he didn’t strike me as overly bulky, at least in context with the other portraits.

  8. Father Karras says:

    Those portraits looks fantastic!

    I can´t wait to see them in a final game.
    Hope there will be skinny variations as well, I, for one, liked them :)

  9. Dhomochevsky says:

    I like this portraits, very good quality. Rat man remembers me splinter from ninja turtles ^_^

  10. Awesome work – I can’t wait to create a full group of Rat men and scurry around!

    Italy's Tamburi seeks investments to follow Moncler Reuters – Wed, Aug 14, 2013 4:32 PM EDT

    [b][url=http://www.monclerjacketbuys.com]moncler[/url][/b] MILAN (Reuters) – Italy’s Tamburi Investment Partners (TIP) (MIL:TIP) is looking for further purchases after leading a consortium to buy into luxury ski wear maker Moncler, chief executive Giovanni Tamburi said on Wednesday.
    [b][url=http://www.monclerjacketbuys.com]outlet moncler[/url][/b] TIP, which Tamburi said has investments worth about 1 billion euros ($1.3 billion), acquired an indirect stake in Moncler this month when its majority-owned vehicle Clubsette bought 14 percent of Moncler President Remo Ruffini’s holding company.
    [b][url=http://www.monclerjacketbuys.com]moncler jackets for men[/url][/b] The independent investment bank, which also holds stakes in hearing aid maker Amplifon (MIL:AMP) and cable maker Prysmian (MIL:PRY), is mulling deals in the technology, fashion and retail sectors in Europe, at a pace of between one and three a year.
    [b][url=http://www.monclerjacketbuys.com]moncler man[/url][/b] “We have absolutely not finished,” Tamburi told Reuters. “We still have liquidity, we still have investors who want to join us, so we’re still looking at potential deals – and there are lots of opportunities in Europe.”
    [b][url=http://www.monclerjacketbuys.com]moncler jackets outlet[/url][/b] TIP booked a capital gain worth about 33 million euros in July from the sale of its stake in holding companies for French department store chain Printemps, but the cash will not make it any less choosy about its investments, Tamburi said.
    [b][url=http://www.monclerjacketbuys.com]moncler outlet store[/url][/b] “We won’t let having lots of money make us rush to invest.”
    The 103 million euro investment in holding company Ruffini Partecipazioni, which owns 32 percent of Moncler, is primarily a bet on the ski wear brand, Tamburi said.
    “Ruffini Partecipazioni effectively means 32 percent of Moncler,” Tamburi said, adding that its other investments, in secondary brands in the Moncler group such as Henry Cotton’s and Marina Yachting, are valued far below the flagship label.
    The goosedown jacket label is set to list – without the secondary brands – on the Milan bourse in the last quarter of this year. Sources have told Reuters that Ruffini plans to keep his 32 percent stake.
    Sources close to the matter have said the IPO values Moncler at about 2 billion euros, but Tamburi declined to put a value on his stake.
    Tamburi said the decision to invest in Ruffini was taken regardless of whether Moncler would list or not.
    “Our participation in Ruffini Partecipazioni completely disregards the possible effects of a listing – whether it takes place sooner or later.”

    Tiffany 2Q profit rises, helped by China growth Tiffany 2Q profit rises, helped by China growth; lifts full-year earnings forecast By Anne d’Innocenzio And Michelle Chapman, AP Business Writers | Associated Press – Tue, Aug 27, 2013 10:22 AM EDT

    [b][url=http://www.outlettiffanyjewelry.com]tiffany & co[/url][/b] NEW YORK (AP) — Tiffany & Co. boosted its full year-earnings forecast on Tuesday after posting a 16 percent increase in second-quarter profits on strong sales in China that offset sluggish growth in the U.S.
    [b][url=http://www.outlettiffanyjewelry.com]tiffany silver[/url][/b] The upscale jewelry chain’s shares rose more than 1 percent in morning trading.
    [b][url=http://www.outlettiffanyjewelry.com]tiffany outlet store[/url][/b] The performance was a bright spot among a pile of disappointing earnings reports released in the past few weeks that have fed concerns over shoppers’ willingness to spend — even among the affluent — heading into the winter holiday season. Many lowered expectations for the rest of the year.
    [b][url=http://www.outlettiffanyjewelry.com]tiffany[/url][/b] Several upscale retailers, including Saks Inc., Ralph Lauren Corp. and Coach Inc., reported weak sales during the spring and early summer period. But Tiffany, which is considered a bellwether for the luxury market, gives hope that well-heeled shoppers are spending.
    [b][url=http://www.outlettiffanyjewelry.com]tiffany and co[/url][/b] “Total sales growth met our objective due to solid performance in most regions, and with particular strength in our statement and fine jewelry product categories,” said Michael J. Kowalski, chairman and CEO in a statement.
    The company, which is known for its blue boxes, earned $106.8 million, or 83 cents per share, for the period ended July 31. A year earlier it earned $91.8 million, or 72 cents per share.
    Revenue for the New York company increased 4 percent to $925.9 million from $886.6 million, helped by strong performances from its statement and fine jewelry products. Tiffany defines statement jewelry as pieces priced over $50,000.
    Analysts polled by FactSet predicted lower earnings of 74 cents per share on higher revenue of $941.5 million.
    Shares of Tiffany gained $1.04, to $82.71, in morning trading.
    Asia-Pacific sales climbed 20 percent, led by strong results in China. European sales rose 11 percent, buoyed by strength in the U.K. and most of continental Europe.
    Japan’s sales were dragged down by a weaker yen, falling 14 percent. On a constant currency basis, sales climbed 7 percent on increased sales of engagement and higher-end jewelry.
    In the Americas, sales edged up 2 percent led by better sales at its flagship store in New York. The sales increase, however, was entirely due to an increase in average price per jewelry items sold. A modest decline in jewelry items reflected weakness in the moderate price fashion jewelry category, which more than offset unit growth in higher-priced statement and fine jewelry.
    Revenue at stores opened at least a year in the Americas was unchanged in the quarter and was in line with expectations.
    Revenue at stores open at least a year rose 5 percent on growth in most regions. This metric is a key indicator of a retailer’s health because it excludes results from stores recently opened or closed.
    Tiffany now foresees fiscal 2013 earnings in a range of $3.50 to $3.60 per share. Its prior guidance called for earnings between $3.43 and $3.53 per share. Wall Street expects earnings of $3.54 per share.
    The company is adding six stores in the Americas, including three in the U.S. They include a location in New Jersey’s Garden State Plaza, which opened earlier this month, one in Cleveland’s ETON Center, which opens Wednesday, and a store in New Orleans in the shops at Canal Place.
    As of July 31, the company operated 277 stores, including 116 stores in the Americas, 67 in Asia-Pacific, 54 in Japan, 35 in Europe and five in the United Arab Emirates.

    Moncler to open boutique and headquarters in Paris

    13 Sep. [b][url=http://www.moncleroutletshopping.com]moncler[/url][/b] 2013
    Moncler is moving house in Paris

In addition to the Moncler main collection for men and women, the new Paris flagship store houses all the fashion houses collections, from Moncler Gamme Rouge to Moncler Gamme Bleu, Moncler Grenoble for men and women, Moncler Lunettes and accessories.

    Tiffany's strong China sales offset tepid America's business Reuters – Tue, Aug 27, 2013 11:13 AM EDT

    [b][url=http://www.tiffanyandcorp.com]tiffany[/url][/b] By Phil Wahba
    [b][url=http://www.tiffanyandcorp.com]tiffany and co[/url][/b] (Reuters) – Tiffany & Co’s (NYS:TIF) strong sales in China and higher prices made up for some disappointing business in its home market in the latest quarter, leading the U.S. jeweller on Tuesday to raise its profit forecast for the year.
    [b][url=http://www.tiffanyandcorp.com]tiffany & co[/url][/b] There were fears this summer that luxury spending in China might slow as the economy there weakened, but Tiffany is the latest Western brand to report good sales there. Prada SpA (HKG:1913) and Coach Inc (NYS:COH) recently posted big gains in the world’s fastest-growing market for luxury goods.
    [b][url=http://www.tiffanyandcorp.com]tiffany[/url][/b] Sales at stores open at least a year in Asia, except for Japan, rose 13 percent in the second quarter ended July 31, helped largely by China.
    [b][url=http://www.tiffanyandcorp.com]tiffany & co[/url][/b] But same-store sales were unchanged in the Americas, which is still Tiffany’s biggest market. This suggests the company may have faced the same summer pullback by U.S. shoppers that dented sales at chains ranging from Saks Inc (SKS.N) to Target Corp (TGT.N).
    [b][url=http://www.tiffanyandcorp.com]tiffany jewelry outlet[/url][/b] “Business in the Americas is light,” said Edward Jones analyst Brian Yarbrough. Tiffany continues to struggle with low-end jewellery sales, he added.
    Tiffany executives told analysts on a conference call that tourists’ purchases had helped business tick up at the Fifth Avenue flagship in New York, which generates about one-eighth of sales. Elsewhere, though, there was still reason to be prudent, they said.
    “We are maintaining a cautious sales outlook for the Americas until we see solid evidence of an upturn,” Chief Financial Officer Patrick McGuiness said.
    Shares of Tiffany rose 0.1 percent to $81.75 in morning trading.
    An Ipsos poll conducted for Reuters earlier this month found 35 percent of Americans planned to spend less on jewellery in the 2013 holiday season, while only 5 percent expected to spend more.
    Tiffany said it still expected net sales worldwide to increase by a mid-single-digit percentage rate for the year, including the effect of the strong dollar.
    The company has struggled to find the right mix of the expensive jewellery for which it is known and the more-affordable silver items, typically less than $500, that generate 25 percent of sales and comprise its most profitable category.
    Still, the pickup in business outside the Americas, where Tiffany is focusing its expansion, reassured Wall Street that the jeweller’s growth prospects remain good, Yarbrough said.
    Sales in Asia outside Japan now account for about 22 percent of overall revenue, compared with 11 percent five years ago.
    SALES MISS
    The company, famed for its robin’s egg blue boxes, said global sales rose 4.4 percent to $925.9 million (595.6 million pounds) in the second quarter, below the $941.4 million analysts were expecting, according to Thomson Reuters I/B/E/S.
    Sales growth would have been 8 percent if not for the strong U.S. dollar, which reduces the value of goods sold overseas.
    Same-store sales climbed 5 percent, in line with estimates. Excluding currency fluctuations, they were up 7 percent in Europe and 8 percent in Japan.
    Despite strong demand for high-end jewellery in Japan, overall sales there fell 14 percent because of the weak yen.
    Second-quarter net income rose to $106.8 million, or 83 cents per share, from $91.8 million, or 72 cents per share, a year earlier.
    Per-share profit beat the average Wall Street estimate by 9 cents, helped by lower pressure from diamond and gold costs.
    Tiffany said price increases in some categories had not deterred shoppers.
    The company now expects a profit of $3.50 to $3.60 per share for the full fiscal year, up 7 cents from its previous forecast range.
    Last year, Tiffany’s shares came under attack after it repeatedly lowered its forecasts.

    [b][url=http://www.tiffanyjewelrysell.com]tiffany silver jewelry[/url][/b] NEW YORK (AP) — Tiffany & Co. is promoting Frederic Cumenal to the role of president and expanding its board to give him a newly created seat.
    [b][url=http://www.tiffanyjewelrysell.com]sell tiffany and co jewelry[/url][/b] Tiffany’s board will now have 10 directors.
    [b][url=http://www.tiffanyjewelrysell.com]tiffany outlet store[/url][/b] The luxury jewelry company said Tuesday that Cumenal will keep his regional responsibilities and take on responsibility for its design, merchandising and marketing functions. He previously served as executive vice president.
    [b][url=http://www.tiffanyjewelrysell.com]tiffany silver[/url][/b] The 54-year-old Cumenal joined Tiffany in March 2011, having previously served as president and CEO of Moet & Chandon SA at the LVMH Group.
    Cumenal will continue to report directly to Chairman and CEO Michael Kowalski.
    Last month Tiffany reported that its second-quarter profit rose, helped by strong sales in China. The New York company also raised its full-year earnings forecast.
    Tiffany shares added 25 cents to $78.78 in morning trading.

    Chanel’s Fall-Winter 2013/14 Bag Collection By Joann Stern in Style Women
    [b][url=http://www.bagoutletstores.com]chanel[/url][/b] Accessories from Chanel’s Fall-Winter 2013/14 collection can be described in one word – Modern. Based on sci-fi theme, the collection has been designed by none other than the neoteric fashion designer, Karl Lagerfeld. Featuring leather, plexiglass, tweed, chains and other fabulous embellishments, the bags are presented in alluring shapes to cater to every Chanel fan’s whims.
    [b][url=http://www.bagoutletstores.com]chanel aaa replica[/url][/b]
    [b][url=http://www.bagoutletstores.com]chanel purses outlet[/url][/b] The globe-shaped evening bag makes a global statement. The hard-leather and plexiglass purse dominantly swings from the old-world to the avant-garde trend.
    [b][url=http://www.bagoutletstores.com]chanel handbags outlet[/url][/b] Other dazzling evening bag made from shiny lambskin is meant to be held dearly with an unusual U-shaped rod. This kind of handle will add an enchanting element to the evening.
    [b][url=http://www.bagoutletstores.com]chanel handbags replica[/url][/b] The iconic Boy Flap Bag brings calfskin and tweed together with style. Chained up to the brand’s symbolic pattern with an array of chains, Mademoiselle Coco would definitely approve of this latest edition.
    [b][url=http://www.bagoutletstores.com]chanel purses outlet[/url][/b] The large Boy Shopping Bag made from calfskin is designed to accompany divas on their excursion d’une journée to Champs Elysees in Paris or Fifth Avenue in New York.
    Carry Karl’s pride in Chanel’s latest Vanity Case. Sheathed in grained calfskin, the case can be held with a metallic handle or dangled with a gilded chain.
    Karl Lagerfeld’s remarks can go haywire but his creations can never go wrong!

    Hong Kong: From the Ritz to the Y   Bustling international metropolis has something to offer everyone from big spenders to frugal travellers  
    By Rochelle Lash, Postmedia News
    October 5, 2013
     
    Tweet
     
    [b][url=http://www.jacquescartierbest.com]cartier[/url][/b] Festivities and fireworks are part of Hong Kong’s identity, but to me, the city is a perpetual party, popping yearround with lights and commerce and energy. The approximately 400,000 Canadians who visit this year will experience an intriguing mix of East and West, all flourishing in a delicate balance of upper-crust elegance and frenzied neon-lit street life.[b][url=http://www.jacquescartierbest.com]Men’s Cartier Watches[/url][/b] Hong Kong always has been my favourite city, even before I ever saw it. The name is loaded with music and mystique. The place brings to my mind images of a glamorous and worldly past of rickshaws and Rolls-Royces, and a pulp history rife with international spies, opium smugglers and painted women with rare talents. With eight million people, the Hong Kong of today embraces enough skyscrapers of astounding architecture to dwarf Toronto and even Manhattan, as well as the world’s largest container port and one of the busiest airports. It’s also an enormously entertaining destination on any budget.[b][url=http://www.jacquescartierbest.com]cartier watches for men replica[/url][/b] The city has more than 60 Michelinstarred restaurants and is home to some of the world’s most luxe hotels, including the revered Peninsula Hong Kong and the new and astounding Ritz-Carlton. Fashionistas line up outside Chanel and Prada, and Cartier and Rolex boutiques proliferate by the dozen.[b][url=http://www.jacquescartierbest.com]cartier watches for sale[/url][/b] But that’s just one side of the modern metropolis. Bargain hunters, too, can enjoy this intimate city of distinct neighbourhoods that you can walk, touch and feel. Here is a peek at Hong Kong, two ways.[b][url=http://www.jacquescartierbest.com]best cartier replica watches[/url][/b] The luxury route Stay: Big spenders will feel right at home at the plush Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong, the highest-elevation hotel in the world, capping the shimmering, tapered glass tower of the International Commerce Centre. Rates start at $900 for a ritzy room for two, which includes the astonishing experience of swimming on the 118th floor, a halfkilometre in the sky. You could easily drop another $1,000 per day, living the high life at Ritz-Carlton with dinner at a one of the hotel’s restaurants, sightseeing via limousine, a restorative massage at ESPA and lychee cocktails at the penthouse lounge Ozone.[b][url=http://www.jacquescartierbest.com]fake cartier watches for sale[/url][/b] Eat: The new culinary darling is Above & Beyond in Hotel Icon, which has panoramic views, an airy design by Sir Terence Conran and contemporary riffs on Cantonese cuisine. Delicacies include wagyu beef, abalone with fish maw, lobster with black truffles, barbecued goose, king prawns, foie gras with pineapple and tender smoked Bresse pigeon with oolong tea leaves.Restaurant manager Hugo Cheng brings expertise from Joël Robuchon’s empire and executive chef Joseph Tse from Mandarin Oriental. A gastronomic dinner costs $85 and up, plus wine pairings. The twist is that Hotel Icon is run by the Hong Kong Polytechnic University School of Hotel Tourism Management, so you are taken care of by the best and brightest servers, both professional and interns.Shop: The city’s Tatler magazine is 400 pages thick with glossy ads for big-brand cars, jewels and watches. (The hottest timepiece is the Swiss-Italian Panerai, which runs $8,000-$25,000 for most models.)The swish Lane Crawford department store carries high-end French, Italian and American designers. But why not go all-Chinese with good-luck symbols, mandarin collars and calligraphy designs from Hong Kong companies? The chic lifestyle boutique Shanghai Tang carries luxurious cashmere, leather and silk clothes for men and women (figure on $700-1,000 for a dress or a man’s jacket) and home accessories, all with Chinese detailing. Goods of Desire on Hollywood Road is a hipster haven of local creations, such as weekend sweaters and down vests at $100-200 and loft-worthy decor items. Chinese Arts and Crafts has a three-storey collection of treasures, from a slinky $200 cheongsam to a $200,000 museum-quality porcelain vase.Wan Chai, the former red-light district immortalized in the 1960 movie The World of Suzie Wong, is Hong Kong’s upscale “it” neighbourhood, with office towers and condos sprouting like bamboo trees and international indulgences such as l’Occitane Spa from France and The Pawn, a gorgeous, historic colonial-style lounge and dining spot with a regal British accent. Wan Chai’s Star Street is a cluster of hot indie boutiques and Queen’s Road East is a posh decorators’ row with fine Asian fabrics. Spa: The sublime Chinese Wellness Ritual at the Four Seasons Hotel Spa begins with an ancient tea ceremony and segues into a soothing rice poultice application, a bracing body exfoliation, a warm rain shower and a revitalizing massage, all done with essences of ginseng, jasmine and green tea. It’s a steep $460, but you’ll feel like a million.Nature: It’s easy to forget that Hong Kong, the Fragrant Lagoon, is surrounded by tranquil islands, picturesque mountains and the warm waters of the South China Sea. No one does a high-flying trip to the seaside like The Peninsula Hotel, the colonial-era doyenne of Hong Kong hotels, where a stunning $57-million renovation is adding subtle high-tech touches and a warm residential style to spacious rooms.The Peninsula runs a twin-engined copter for aerial tours (around $3,000 for four people) of the Hong Kong Geopark, a UNESCO site of unique rock formations near Sai Kung in the New Territories. Geo-tourism is a new gig for Hong Kong and visitors can explore mangrove forests, sea corals and walled villages, built centuries ago as protection against pirates.Tea: East meets West at The Peninsula’s legendary afternoon tea served in the splendid neo-Classical lobby. Scones are topped with Devon cream, and Chinese chrysanthemum tea is served on fine bespoke porcelain by Tiffany & Co.On a budget Stay: Hong Kong has more budgetconscious options than one would think possible. Old China hands know about The Salisbury YMCA, arguably the world’s most desirable YMCA hotel. It’s across the street from the iconic Star Ferry, which still runs for 40 cents a ride after more than 100 years, and next door to the landmark Peninsula, so the same dazzling harbour view at a fraction of the cost. Rooms start at about $130 for two and include daily housekeeping and a fitness centre with two large indoor swimming pools and a hot tub. The young and cool stay at Hotel de Edge in the trendy, gentrified waterfront district of Sheung Wan, adjacent to Central. It’s an amazingly affordable 90-room newbie with a boutique style, molecular cuisine and a slew of design awards. Rates start at $120 for a compact, well-thought-out spaceEat: Cheap eats take on new meaning in the wild world of Cantonese cuisine. Michelin has sprinkled one precious star on 44 “authentic” eateries, where you can feast for as little as $10 in simple surroundings.You can pop into a storefront restaurant for egg tarts, roast goose, noodle dishes, dim sum, milk tea or rice congee and rarely spend more than $10. Snake soup and hot pot will warm you up in winter. Shing Kee in Central is one of the last dai pai dongs, steamy street cafés where you can fuel up on rice topped with tripe, pork, ox tongue or beef for $5 a bowl. Tim Ho Wan in Mong Kok, with one Michelin star, has basic laminate tabletops and tissue boxes for napkins, but its dim sum is so celebrated that there are limos and lineups outside. For about $10 each my table feasted on dumplings stuffed with barbecued pork, chicken, shrimp and beef, plus exotic a like chicken talons, all heightened with spicy XO sauce.Shop: Even on a budget, shopping is without limits. When you visit street markets such as Jardine’s Bazaar or the Ladies’ Market, you can score almost everything for $5-20, if you negotiate. At the Jade Market, I stocked up on pendants and bracelets for gifts at $20-30.Vendors along Cat Street in Soho display bookshelf bibelots at great prices. I love Li Yuen Street East and West in Central for colourful silk brocade jackets and fringed scarves. And Tai Ping Shan Street is the artsy centre of the “it” district of Sheung Wan.The Yue Hwa Chinese Products Emporium is a traditional department store, ideal for herbal medicines, musical instruments and premium teas.Spa: When I arrived in Hong Kong after a 15-hour flight from Toronto, I was jet-lagged, my legs buckled and my back had ached since we flew over Outer Mongolia. I join the free Tai Chi classes in Kowloon harbour and after gentle movements and balance work, I emerge with a sense of calm and boosted energy. I ferry almost dock to dock to Ten Feet Tall, a day spa specializing in the 5,000-year-old Chinese art of reflexology, or foot massage. It’s worth the $30 splurge. My arches are kneaded like dough while I sink into an oversized white leather chaise and sip chilled cucumber water.Nature: I want to feel Hong Kong’s origins as a fishing village and see sailing junks and beautiful beaches. While high-budget visitors are fluttering to Sai Kung aboard The Peninsula’s helicopter, I swipe my Octopus transit card and board a train and a bus to explore the coastal town’s bountiful markets of still-jumping fish and strange crustaceans. Loaf On, at the far end of a cobblestone promenade of bustling restaurants, is another one-Michelin-star eatery where a delectable spread of clams in black bean sauce, scallops with garlic and stirfried squid will cost about $25.Tea: The elegant, historic Lok Cha Tea House presents ceremonial tastings of jasmine, rose, black, green and white teas. If you book through the Hong Kong Tourism Board, some of the visits are free. The priceless extra is that Lok Cha is in Hong Kong Park, a serene botanical garden and bird sanctuary gurgling with fish ponds and waterfalls, a rare respite from the city’s bustle. © Copyright (c) The Vancouver Sun       E-mail this Article Print this Article Share this Article

    Tweet Pin It
    Dopo l’abbuffata di sport della domenica, l’inizio della settimana propone comunque a chi si fosse gustato un weekend di gite al mare od all’aria aperta, la possibilità di gustarsi la replica di vari avvenimenti tra cui spicca naturalmente il calcio con il derby di Roma che la squadra di Rudy Garcia ha vinto abbastanza nettamente su quella di Petkovic. Per quanto riguarda le dirette oltre a quella di Espanyol – Atletico Bilbao per la Liga, c’è il ciclismo che propone i campionati mondiali in svolgimento fino a domenica prossima in Toscana.
