HAPPENINGS hong kong Feathered Friends First-time visitors to Hong Kong get surprised at the greenery of the territory in between the urban sprawl and skyscrapers. One of the best places to experience green Hong Kong can be found at the Hong Kong Wetland Park located in the New Territories. This world-class ecotourism attraction demonstrates the diversity of Hong Kong’s wetland ecosystem and highlights the need to conserve it. The park’s signature annual event is the Bird Watching Festival which introduces visitors to a whole array of feathered friends through thematic exhibitions, guided walks and numerous edutainment activities. Until April 10. SPOTLIGHT Electronic Arts Since its creation in 1994, Sónar has established itself globally at the cutting edge of the electronic music landscape and is widely considered the world’s most respected electronic music and arts festival. Beyond the music, Sónar plays an equally vital role promoting digital culture and visual arts through the Sónar+D series of activities which are designed to link, cultivate and inspire the various creative and technological communities. This year’s Hong Kong festival will take place across six stages and include an impressive blend of established and emerging local talent. April 1. Sonic Healing San Lau is a Hong Kong-based and trained sound healing practitioner who uses gongs, crystal singing bowls, Tibetan singing bowls, drums, tuning forks and other instruments to create group soundbaths. Sound healing takes place when different sound instruments create healing vibrations to facilitate physical, emotional and even spiritual wellbeing, bringing the body back into balance and harmony. The workshop involves participants lying down in a circle with the instruments placed in the middle and in some instances, Tibetan singing bowls may even be placed on the participant’s body to create an even more intense healing effect. March 11. Culinary Learning Hong Kong is rightfully known as one of the world’s great food cities and here’s a chance to take a culinary course. You can release your inner dim sum chef or learn serious knife skills at the Chinese Culinary Institute where Hong Kong’s top chefs are trained. A home cook can also do a “Fun Kitchen,” a four-hour immersion in the art of Chinese cooking. The Intercontinental Hotel’s “Cooking with the Culinary Chefs” courses are taught by its top chefs from such establishments as Nobu and Spoon by Alain Ducasse. The experts demonstrate their dishes before joining participants in a champagne lunch., hongkong-ic. 104
