The world-famous liquid nitrogen ice cream has come to Hong Kong!
With the first stop in Tai Hang, Lab Madehas since spawned into multiple locations around HK and now one more newly opened Lab Made Cafe in Causeway Bay. With the use of extremely cold liquid nitrogen at -196℃, the creamy raw materials would be rapidly frozen right before your eyes around by lots of dramatic clouds of icy mist. It only takes 60 minutes for them to provide you a much smoother and softer experience. Also, all the goods are never stored in a cooler, thus allowing for super fresh weekly changed flavours.
Here is a video shot by me at the cafe in Causeway Bay. If you are a dessert killer, come to have fun. I’m sure you won’t want to miss this.

The ticket sales of 2014 Hong Kong movie were published recently. The box office in total has reached 1647 million HK$, with a growth of 1.3% compared to 1626 million HK$ in 2013. The number of released movies stayed in 310, and the number of Hong Kong local movies increased slightly from 43 to 51. However, the quantity growth didn’t help to make local movie gain traction in the market—only Golden Chicken S（“金鸡风云”）and From Vegas to Macau （“赌城风云”）scraped into Top10 grossing movie. Obviously, Hollywood movie still monopolized Hong Kong movie market in the whole 2014.

Tips from the blogger:
Since the NOBU T-Sets are only available on weekends from 2:30pm—5:00pm, advance reservation will ensure you seats with a great view of the harbor. Having a walk along Victoria Harbor after the tea time will also be a good choice for enjoying the terrific night view of Hong Kong.
