Wonder emporiums
The multi-brand high-fashion stores are going all out to lure the big spenders this Christmas with special promotions, bespoke decorations and exclusive designs. So out with your platinum cards as resistance is futile.

Along for the ride
There are 18,138 taxis in the SAR, according to Transport Department data. With a taxi having an average lifespan of 10 years, the importers are competing for a solid replacement market of almost 2,000 units annually.

Rhapsody in chocolate
La Maison du Chocolat has created a chocoholic's ultimate fantasy, a Tree of Wonder made entirely of chocolate.

Local flavors
If you think Santa would like something else apart from cookies, Kee Wah Bakery's gift set (HK$135) might do the trick.

All set for Christmas
Can't decide on what to have for Christmas? Some restaurants have set menus so all you need to do is turn up and party.

Raising the barre
Christmas would not be Christmas without seeing some twinkly toes and tutus pirouetting on stage.

Ladies man
Barely a week into his job as president of Mary Kay in China, Chua Kheng Kok was asked to go to his boss' office - only to be told something that made his heart skip a beat.

Animal magic
Elements of nature and animal life are recurring themes in high-street jewelry design. But certain jewelers never cease to amaze with their dexterity in capturing mother nature in its most varied forms and bringing their ideas to life with a glittering, luxurious touch.

In the mood
Looking feminine and sophisticated has never been so easy as it is dressed in the Salvatore Ferragamo fall collection 2014.

Safety in numbers
The first Volvo XC90 was a significant model for the Swedish carmaker. It was introduced in 2002, the year Tung Chee- hwa was elected unchallenged to his second term as chief executive and Michael Schumacher won his fifth F1 driver title in a season he finished all the races on the podium.
