Precise and precious
Giorgio Armani presented his Emporio Armani the label's first Swiss-made watch line at the world's most prestigious watch fair, Baselworld, in a vault- inspired installation.

Grand designs
Brussels - home to gorgeous art nouveau and gothic architecture, delicious chocolates and hearty beers - is also where one of the world's oldest leather- goods brands first set up shop.

DCH Motor Day
Those looking for great deals in Audi, Infiniti, Nissan or Honda must check out the coming "DCH Motor Day" this Sunday.

Jeep Wrangler: a truly go-anywhere vehicle
The Jeep Wrangler traces its heritage to the oldest production off-road vehicle used by the US army and their allies during WWII.

Artichoke allure
It's artichoke season and Sabatini Ristorante Italiano has created a special menu of appetizers and main courses using the spiky bud - including Boston lobster and seafood casserole with sauteed artichoke, linguine with carabbineros red prawn and artichoke in tomato sauce.

Good egg
Just how pretty is that Pierre Herme Easter egg, above? Only 15 have been made and are sold exclusively in Paris but you can console yourself with mini ouefs de pacques (HK$200) in nougatine, signature or degustation assortments.

Bud and blossom
Cherry blossoms are scattered all over the dinner buffet (from HK$335) at LIS Cafe and Forte. Wonderfully intense side dishes such as sakura salmon roe and salmon with vegetable salad or sakura squid with cucumber and crab roe salad open up your palate in preparation for the Australian wagyu beef shabu shabu (100 grams per adult diner).

Bunny hops
Easter is a time for chocolates and lots of family fun.

In the long run
Join Kiehl's art marathon to raise funds for charity. For every completed artwork done as part of Drawing for a Better World, Kiehl's will donate HK$10 to Green Power. The drawings will then be put together along Paterson Street as part of the 314-kilometer collage worldwide. Participants will receive a badge designed by artist James Jarvis.

Paws for thought
Chinese artist Xing Chengai's MEOW art exhibition is one for fans of the furry feline. Xing combines traditional Chinese painting techniques with the Western idea of three-dimensional shape to bring his cats to life.
