The Golden Goose Returns to Lung Hin

Authentic Hong Kong flavours come alive with the premium roast goose beginning 12 November. Guests can enjoy golden goose prepared by guest Chef Billy Cheong who returns to the award-winning restaurant, Lung Hin, to share his expertise with the prized culinary staple.

Dining guests will be regaled by the culinary creations of Chef Billy and the expert chefs of Lung Hin, as the premium roast goose will be available for a la carte orders. A set menu is also available with a line-up of other authentic dishes such as Steamed Garoupa with Minced Garlic and Pan-Fried Crab with Pork Belly in Supreme Soy Sauce, and Braised Seafood with Peach Gel Soup.

Considered as a fine dining must in Hong Kong, roasted goose requires a special culinary technique that preserves its flavourful flesh and crispy skin. With guest Chef Billy Cheong, this traditional dish has been a specialty of his family for centuries. His passion and love for Cantonese cuisine stems from having been born to a family of connoisseurs in their home province of Guangdong. Having relatives who are also master chefs, Chef Billy was able to gain numerous international awards for his skills. He has recently recovered all that was lost in an over one century old traditional roast goose formula from his grandfather.

Taste the difference of true tradition in Lung Hin this season beginning 12 November. To know more about Marco Polo Ortigas Manila, visit www.marcopolohotels.com. Follow the Hotel in Facebook at facebook.com/MarcoPoloOrtigasManila or @MarcoPoloManila on Twitter or Instagram.

World-class natural remedy for Filipina beauty & wellness expert’s crowning glory

Hair loss is a concern for both men and women. It can have a devastating effect to anyone who experiences it.

According to Web MD, the average adult head has about 100,000 to 150,000 strands of hair and loses up to 100 of them a day, which is normal. As people age, their rate of hair growth slows, and they can experience losing more than hundreds of strands which is quite alarming. So what can you do to prevent it?

For beauty and wellness expert, Cory Quirino, embracing wellness is the first step to help improve the hair’s condition and make people look younger.
“If you choose to have a wellness lifestyle, then expect wonderful changes such as radiant skin, energy, and a general sense of well-being,” she emphasizes. “In time, you will realize that you have successfully delayed the aging process.”

The beauty and wellness expert says that choosing wellness as a lifestyle includes eating nutritious food, exercising, getting a good sleep, drinking generous amounts of water, managing stress, getting enough sunshine, and above all, staying positive.
