i never shared a clear photo of my first tattoo i got last summer — though it is a graphic representation of a rubik’s cube, it’s more so an ode to elegant problem solving, something papa gao always instilled in me when i was growing up 🤓

a little cocktail inspiration for your new year’s eve made with @brockmansgin. i had my buddy @theolieberman create a cocktail for you guys that will be sure to impress your guests (and fun for yourself too of course). here is “the petersfield”: 1oz brockman’s gin 1oz cappelletti aperitivo .75oz fresh lemon juice .5oz simple syrup 2 small cucumber slices 1 egg white combine all of these ingredients into a shaker tin and “dry shake” (shake without ice). add ice and shake again. strain the cocktail into a coupe and garnish with peychaud bitters and cucumber (optional). cheers, guys! happy new year! pressforgin sponsored

a moment of calm and contemplation with the newest Tresor collection by @OMEGA at the ‘Her Time’ pop-up store on 5th Ave. i love the exaggerated stretched numerals on this dial. HerTime Tresor

chances are, you've heard me gushing about the @upperhouse_hkg, a hotel that makes my heart flutter with its impeccable service. i couldn't leave them out of my @Chase SapphireSix guide. even if you don't get a chance to stay there, do make a breakfast reservation at cafe gray deluxe and enjoy the views of victoria harbor. another hotel with insane views is the @ritzcarltonhongkong. afternoon tea on the 102nd floor lounge and bar will make you feel like you're dining in the clouds. sapphireonlocation sponsored

you can't have a conversation about hong kong without a conversation about its food and drink offerings. it's probably next to my top reason for visiting. for my @Chase SapphireSix guide, i chose to highlight @ronin_hk, sort of the OG of the new school restaurants. here you'll find japanese small plates focused on seafood as well as a massive whiskey library. for more casual dining, check out sister restaurants, @yardbird and @sundaysgrocery. it's incredibly hard to narrow down restaurant recommendations, but i had to also include @samsenhk in my six, a thai restaurant that opened last year featuring street food favorites. here, the wait can be over an hour long, but the boat noodles and other noodle dishes are worth it! many of the truly old school classic spots are still cash-only but if you want that experience, don't miss mak's noodles and kau kee. and for a hemingway fan like me, coming across the new @theoldmanhk, which is directly inspired by "the old man" was a dream. if i could only include one cocktail bar in my @Chase SapphireSix, it'd be this one, hands down. drinks here (which are creative but well-balanced) are named after hemingway classics, like "a farewell to arms" and "death in the afternoon". if i had my way, i would drink through the whole menu. sapphireonlocation sponsored
