When one think of white socks paired with strappy platform sandals, the word "Japanese" springs to mind. But the Atsuro Tayama summer collection 2015 has a little twist as it encapsulates European styles with traditional Japanese elements.

Big is beautiful
This season, go big or go home. At least where sunglasses are concerned.

Pawn star
To mark the return of Michelin-starred chef Tom Aikens until July 29, The Pawn will be hosting an exclusive dinner (HK$888) on July 27.

Bali high
TRi, a restaurant serving contemporary Balinese cuisine has opened.

Bistros are to Parisians what cha chaan tengs are to Hongkongers: modest restaurants, serving simple meals for a reasonable price.

Where's Wally? found here
For the first time anywhere, an exhibition showcasing the 28-year history of British cartoon character Wally - the star of the Where's Wally? children's book series - is being held here near the Victoria Harbour front.

If you're a big fan of Japanese manga, Hong Kong 3D Museum's One Piece exhibition is a must-go. There are over 60 pieces of three-dimensional artworks and out-of-ordinary paintings of major One Piece characters.
