Mission Hills Opens “Chinaflug” Exhibition To Unveil 80-Year-OldHidden Photos

Mission Hills Group has officially opened its “Chinaflug” photography exhibition at the luxury Mission Hills Haikou resort on the tropical Chinese island of Hainan.

The opening ceremony was attended by Dr Andreas Kaufmann, Chairman of the Supervisory Board Leica Camera AG and Owner of the Ernst Leitz Archiv- und Museums gemeinnützige GmbH; Mrs Karin Kaufmann, Art Director of Leica Gallery International and Chairwoman of the Ernst Leitz Archiv- und Museums gemeinnützige GmbH; Mr Tenniel Chu, Mission Hills Group Vice-Chairman; and Cao Yuan Xin, Director of Department of Culture, Radio, Television, Publication and Sports of Hainan Province.

In the mid-1930s, a celebrated German aviator called Wulf-Diether Graf zu Castell-Rüdenhausen flew over China with his Leica camera, recording stunning landscapes, natural features and historical monuments. For more than 80 years his photos have remained undiscovered and unseen – until now.

The Chinaflug (meaning China Flight) exhibition will run for 45 days at Mission Hills Centreville in Haikou. Entry will be free, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of Hainan’s status as a province.

On display are several precious and historical photos which have remained unseen to the world for many years. These photographs record incredible images of old China through the power of aerial photography.

Visitors will experience a special exhibition encapsulating the past and blazing a new trail towards a brighter future in photography. They will witness a side to China not seen before as China’s beauty and diversity are displayed for all to see.

Castell has become a legend, not just because of his aerial photography but also because of the precious images he captured. With his Leica camera he was able to capture China through a tumultuous time. He flew over cities, countryside, rolling hills, ports and residential areas including riverbeds and farmlands which were previously undocumented. He was able to encapsulate the spirit of the time with great style and panache and will be remembered as an amazing pioneer both as an aviator and a photographer.

“We are honoured to team up with Mission Hills – like Leica, a family-owned business and a pioneer in its field – to bring these significant photos of China to the Chinese public,” said Chairman of the Supervisory Board Leica Camera AG, Dr Andreas Kaufmann, owner of the Ernst Leitz Archiv- und Museums gemeinnützige GmbH.

“Chinaflug is an example of how Leica captured the past one hundred years of human history. It is also a showcase of the long friendship built between Germany and China,” added Karin Kaufmann, Art Director of Leica Gallery International and Chairwoman of the Ernst Leitz Archiv- und Museums gemeinnützige GmbH.

Mission Hills Haikou, the most visited tourist attraction in Hainan, is delighted to partner with Leica, with more than 100 years of history, to create yet another first for China and for the world,” added Tenniel Chu, Group Vice Chairman of Mission Hills. “As China’s international tourism island, it is befitting that Hainan should be the location to unveil these remarkable aerial photos of China that have remained a secret for so long. It is our gift to the province and its people to celebrate Hainan’s 30th anniversary!”

Cao Yuan Xin, Director of Department of Culture, Radio, Television, Publication and Sports of Hainan Province commented: “Visitors to Hainan continue to grow year on year and the province received more than 67.45 million tourists in 2017, up 12.2 per cent year-on-year, contributing 81 billion yuan in revenue. Mission Hills has been at the forefront of tourism in Haikou for close to a decade and the Chinaflug exhibition will be another hugely popular attraction for visitors to Hainan.”

Try Something New At Tycoon Tuesdays At Terrace Bar

I think we’ve all had nights where we just don’t feel like having our usual drink of choice. Perhaps you are seated at the bar and you spot a particularly tempting bottle of single malt on the top shelf that you’ve never had before? Or maybe a group at another table are celebrating with a champagne that you’ve always seen but never tried?

As tempted as we are to step outside of our comfort zones, we are often put off when we check the price list. Why spend that much on something I might not like when I can buy a drink that’s tried and tested, even if it is a little overly familiar.

But with Tycoon Tuesdays at Terrace Bar, you now have the chance to try some of those drinks you’ve always wanted to. The concept is simple and clean in its execution. Every Tuesday, Terrace Bar selects one of its top shelf, premium items from its drinks list and takes the price and cuts it by as much as 50%.

Only one item from the menu is selected, but each time it rotates to something new. One week it could be a bottle of Belvedere Pure Vodka, the next week it could be a fine Ferrari-Carano Chardonnay. Well, they do say variety is the spice of life.

If you are looking to impress a new date or want to treat the wife to a break from the kids, be sure to head down to Terrace when the Josmeyer Fleur de Lotus is on special. Take advantage of the Terrace’s other promotions on a Tuesday too and treat yourself and your date to a steak dinner. For RMB148, you can enjoy an imported Australian Rib-eye Steak and a glass of wine.

After a long day of touring factories or sitting in meetings, bring your clients down for a bottle of Macallan 12 Years while it’s available on promotion. Put business to one side for a couple of hours and unwind over a few tumblers of single malt.

Or perhaps it could be something more on the wild side? Make the most of the Hennessy VSOP when it’s on rotation. Bring down a group of friends and party like there’s no tomorrow, or at least like tomorrow isn’t a Wednesday. Who knows? Before you know it, you could be on the dance floor jumping and singing along with the resident Terrace Bar band, T.A.S.

Something to celebrate? Pick up a bottle or two of the Don Perignon when it’s on offer and cheers to that promotion, birthday, or engagement. Pop open that bubbly and celebrate in style.

With the bottle on offer changing every week, there’s only one way to find out what is the special that week. By following Terrace’s official WeChat account you can be amongst the first to find out what bottle is on offer.

Not only that, you can also keep up to date with all of Terrace’s other great specials such as the great value daily Lunch Specials where you can sample Terrace Bar’s Thai food, or Ladies’ Night on a Wednesday where ladies can make the most of some fantastic drinks specials all night long.

So treat yourself to something different on Tuesday and allow yourself to feel like a Tycoon.

Upcoming Tycoon Tuesdays:

April 3rd – Hennessey VSOP 700ml – Originally 1198RMB, on offer at 599RMB

April 10th – Martel Noblige 700ml – Originally 1298RMB, on offer at 649RMB

April 17th – Remy Martin VSOP 700ml – Originally 1198RMB, on offer at 599RMB

5,000+ Attend First Ever Spartan Race, Shenzhen

The thought of crawling under barbed wire, scaling walls or plunging several feet into muddy waters might seem ridiculous to most of us – the appeal to an Spartan Racer is however, without question.

Over 5,000 fitness and sports enthusiasts from all over the world gathered together to participate in the first ever Spartan Race to hit Shenzhen – and boy oh boy was it spectacular!

Unlike a normal race – this was a 7KM sprint over muddy and treacherous terrain, scattered throughout with 22 military style obstacles, including fire jumping, wall climbing, spear throwing and even a barbed wire crawl.

The Spartan Race is a true test of endurance – 8am, March 24th 2018, the gates opened and the first set of contenders stepped forward to present themselves – signing wavers and registering their place in the first ever Spartan Race, Shenzhen.

“Aroo! Aroo! Aroo!” – By 9am the Spartan war cry could be heard whaling around the Mission Hills Ecological Sports Park in Shenzhen where the race was being held.

The Spartan Race, Shenzhen, consisted of two race timeslots with elite athletes racing in the morning at 9:15am and group races starting from 1:15pm in the afternoon.

The quickest contender around the 7KM circuit would be crowned the race winner which came with it 7500 RMB in prize money but more importantly – the bragging rights as the first Shenzhen Spartan Race winner!

Second and third place winners received 3000RMB and 1500RMB respectively.

Unlike the elite racers who’s sole objective is to win, the group races provide an opportunity for like-minded individuals, co-workers, friends and family to come together in teams to compete, bond and challenge themselves and each other.

“The build up to this event has brought me and my co-works closer together, we’ve been training together, staying healthy together and really bonded as a group.” – commented Faye Gao from WFCN.

After the dust had settled and all the race times were recorded the elite stage winners were as follows; the men’s race winners was Oleksii Melnyk from Ukraine and the women’s race winner was Maggie from Switzerland.

The first Spartan Race event was held in 2010 in Vermont, USA where roughly 500 competitors competed to be crowned the ultimate Spartan warrior. Since then, the Spartan Race has grown to be the world’s largest obstacle race holding over 200 events in more than 30 countries worldwide.

The Spartan Race, Shenzhen, is set to be back next year. Think you’ve got what it takes? Start training and get involved! “Aroo!”

[Review] The Lantern Festival Event

As the first important festival after Chinese New Year, Lantern Festival is celebrated throughout China. Last Saturday, we also held an event to celebrate this lovely festival. Many students and friends joined our event. They learned how to make the sweet dumplings (tāng yuán) from our teachers. Sweet dumpling is one kind of very traditional food, which is normally hand-made. We experienced the whole process of making sweet dumplings and everyone enjoyed it very much!

KOOZA of Cirque Du Soleil Debuts

KOOZA, one of the most classic shows of Cirque Du Soleil, will unveil its mystery tonight at the public square of Longgang Radio and Television Center, Shenzhen Media Group. 

The media were invited to visit the Big Top of the Cirque Du Soleil on March 1st and witnessed the preparation of the whole team.

 

KOOZA has embarked on a tour of six cities in China and Shenzhen is the first station of its 2018’s tour in the country.The show in Shenzhen will last from March 1st to April 1st.  Cirque Du Soleil, from Montreal, has performed in 450 cities in 60 countries.Get ticket now! 

加拿大太阳马戏KOOZA秀将于3月1日在深圳龙岗拉开大幕,进行为期一个月的表演,并陆续在中国各大城市开展巡演。在大秀正式开始前一天,记者到秀场进行了探营,一睹演员彩排风采,也带观众“提前看大秀”。 
拨开黄蓝色的大帐篷,恍如穿越到一个奇幻世界。KOOZA秀的圆形舞台一览无余,提供了260度的绝佳视野,在灯光效果的作用下,简单的圆形舞台也似乎“动”起来了。 关于太阳马戏和《KOOZA》秀太阳马戏于1984年在加拿大创立,KOOZA是太阳马戏巡演类剧目中最原汁原味的特色表演之一。演出把马戏艺术与街头娱乐戏剧性组合,将音乐、灯光、舞蹈、即兴喜剧等艺术形式融为一体,创造出专属于太阳马戏的表演模式。

《KOOZA》秀是太阳马戏回归经典之作,再现了马戏表演的两大精髓:人体特技和小丑艺术。本剧表现了在人生不同阶段的不同欲望,通过绚丽多彩的混合表演,为观众呈现出一场大胆,诙谐的舞台幽默剧。“《KOOZA》秀表现的是人与人之间的交流,世界的双面性—好与坏,黑与白。但是它要做到以一种有趣和直白的方式去呈现,而并非严肃,更多的是想法的传递。故事的线索在于探索,探索恐惧,身份,赞誉和权力”《KOOZA》秀的剧作家及监制David Shiner如是说。

KOOZA 演出的环球帐篷占地面积约 1.7万平米,所有的帆布和整体支架轨道重达 11500磅,帐篷高达 19 米,直径为51米。现场搭建的几十名技术人员,将地面上的100多根柱子手动撑起,瞬间“黄蓝相间的巨大城堡”在城市中一跃而起,是中国罕见的帐篷剧场。

How Shenzhen is Outsmarting the West

When Silicon Valley veteran Scotty Allen first came to the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen a few years ago as part of an organized tour for American tech geeks, and witnessed the city’s noisy hardware and electronics markets, its buzzing tech startup scene and countless glittering skyscrapers, his spontaneous reaction was not: “Wow, this is cool.” It was: “Wow, we are screwed”.

Coming to Shenzhen is like visiting the future. But it’s this crazy Blade Runner-esque future”, says Allen, his bearded, somewhat wild-looking face beaming in a broad smile. “There’s this incredible energy here. There’s a sort of feeling that like all boats are rising. People are just really smart and really innovative and really creative.”

These are the opening lines of a new book I wrote about Chinese innovation and startups, titled “Shenzhen Superstars – How China’s smartest city is challenging Silicon Valley”.

And Scotty Allen is apparently not the only one fascinated by the city. The book almost immediately became the number 1 bestseller on Amazon’s China section and among the most popular on its section for Innovation.

Reviews and readers comments have been very positive. Typically they highlight the notion that Shenzhen’s tech firms are in many ways outsmarting the West – just look at at Tencent’s WeChat. But also that most people in the West still are unaware of what’s going on in China.

This is how South China Morning Posted opened its review:

Imagine a tech start­-up venture capital­ist who hasn’t heard of Google or Silicon Valley. For Hong Kong-based journalist Johan Nylander, that’s the order of absurdity he encounters when it comes to global awareness of Shenzhen and the giant technology companies that the Chinese city has spawned.”

The book is available as both e-book and paperback on Amazon.

You can also contact me and I send you a copy. I’m on WeChat johanhej

About the author: Johan Nylander is an award-winning author and freelancing China and Asia correspondent. He’s frequently published by CNN, Forbes and Sweden’s leading business daily Dagens Industri. His latest book “Shenzhen Superstars – How China’s smartest city is challenging Silicon Valley” became an Amazon bestseller, and is the first in a series of Chinese startups and innovation.

HYPOXI Introduces Effective Weight Loss Spa at the Grand Hyatt Hotel, Luohu

In a big city like Shenzhen, it is noticeable that many fads come and go rather like in the food, shared bike or even hotel industry. Some trends stay for good, whilst the next best thing is slowly replacing others. One trend, however, that seems to be developing very well in Shenzhen is the fitness trend. With a growing awareness of staying fit and living a healthy lifestyle in such a work driven city like Shenzhen, sometimes the biggest frustration can be the lack of time to really focus on a dedicated daily routine.

For professionals, staying fit is definitely something that’s needed but not always a possibility due to time constraints. Furthermore, if your really trying to exercise and see fast results – it takes even more dedication than usual to get the figure you’re trying to achieve which many don’t have the time to give. This is because normal exercise will typically burn fat that the body can easily access, not necessarily fat that you want to focus on removing. For this reason, many people will diet and/or exercise and find that the weight they are losing is coming off other areas of their body such as their arms but not the areas that count such as their stomach or hips. I know for me personally, this was an issue I had quite a bit when I was trying to lose weight myself. I didn’t have a lot of time to focus on exercise but the time I did put into exercise didn’t seem to do much for the areas I was wanting to target.

Fortunately, a company has arrived in the Shenzhen that’s answering these issues by offering gym equipment that focuses on specific problematic areas while offering a light workout that doesn’t take an exaggerated amount of dedication. This company is HYPOXI and their Spa is located at the Grand Hyatt in Luohu. HYPOXI’s exercise equipment focuses on targeting stubborn fat deposits, reducing cellulite, tightening/toning the skin and improved complexion.

 

When talking about stubborn fat deposits, fat burns more readily in areas where there is good circulation. This is why many people find it difficult to eliminate cellulite and fat in certain areas. A good test is to touch your skin around the legs, buttocks, hips, and stomach after a 30-minute exercise. The areas that are still hot have good circulation while the cold areas have very bad circulation.  The cooler the surface of the skin – the less circulation it has. This is what makes the HYPOXI machines so effective.  By using a unique technology known as the “HYPOXI-Method,” they are able to create a fat burning exercise that uses vacuum and compression therapy to maximize fat and cellulite loss in the right areas.

The vacuum therapy used in HYPOXI stimulates targeted areas of the body through a unique combination of alternating pressure therapy and moderate fat burning activity. This saves you a lot of time and energy that would otherwise be spent on non-effective methods to lose fat and firm the skin. For example, one thirty-minute workout using the HYPOXI bike is equal to three workouts on a regular bike and targets the right areas. Because of this, the gyms and spas that supply the HYPOXI-Method offer an effective exercise as opposed to a hard workout and will give you faster results.

 

At the Grand Hyatt in Luohu, guests have the option to enjoy effective workouts using the HYPOXI-Method. My colleague and I were lucky enough to give this method a try on our last visit and fell in love with using this technology in our workout.  The first machine used was the HYPOXI Trainer S120. This machine focuses on the lower body by providing a light workout of biking to help activate blood flow in your lower body area. During this exercise, the lower half of your body is enclosed in a tight vacuum alternating pressure chamber.

This pressurizes the right areas while you are working out and helps to stimulate circulation in the problem areas. I could definitely feel the difference during the workout as my lower body became extremely hot. Also, I noticed the pressure around my stomach and waist would alternate and give those areas quite a workout while I was biking. After a session was over, I noticed the lower part of my body had sweated a lot more than the upper part and could feel like I just did a rigorous workout – even though that was definitely not the case.

Later on, I went to the gym wearing the HYPOXI Vacunaut. This suit targets pressure around the stomach and waist giving the result of a flat stomach without the use of sit-ups.   It only takes a simple workout such as walking or jogging and really enhances the experience by providing alternating high and low pressure to the stomach; thus, giving more than just a cardio exercise. Trying this out, I could definitely feel the pressure and knew that it was doing its job well. After only half a session, I was definitely feeling the heat as the pressure suit applied pressure to my waist and stomach area. This made a workout that usually would be simple for me quite difficult and it showed in the amount of sweat that my body was producing while just doing a light jog. If you are looking at losing fat in the stomach or hip region, you definitely need to give this technology a try.

 

My college Wendy gave the HYPOXI Dermology a try and loved the therapeutic feeling it gave. In order to remain elastic and smooth your skin also needs to be exercised. This technology does just that by using integrated chambers within a pressure suit (HD-Pressure Suit) to apply high and low pressure to the skin around problem areas. There are many bubble-like indentions in this suit that seem to massage you while the low and high pressure circulates. This gently stretches and compresses the skin tissue in a similar way that muscles are trained. Wendy loved the feeling and found it to be very relaxing. It’s comforting to know that you can reduce cellulite and enhance your complexion in just a relaxing twenty-minute session.

Shenzhen is lucky to have an HYPOXI Spa located at the Grand Hyatt Hotel in Luohu. Here an extensively trained HYPOXI coach who all has a wealth of knowledge in fields such as sports training and nutrition will closely supervise you. With HYPOXI, only two to three short sessions per week are more than enough to have fast visible results. Currently, at the Grand Hyatt there is a special opening price with 30% off the regular rate of HYPOXI Spa treatments.

Is Hong Kong Right For Your Amazon FBA Business?

 

This article is originally found: here

Are you currently selling on Amazon, in your personal name? Or maybe you have a company in your home country for your Amazon business?

Sales are taking off and you want to start looking global for the right jurisdiction to establish a proper corporate entity.

Then look no further! Today we’ll discuss why Hong Kong is a great place for you to headquarter your Amazon FBA business. Start selling on Amazon US and other global markets from HK and Asia direct.

Note: This is more on the corporate setup side for a HK company and Amazon sales. Check out our how to guide on how to get started selling on Amazon FBA internationally for the business side of it.

Getting Started Selling on Amazon

There are massive courses written on how to sell on Amazon. This guide is focused on setting up your account from Hong Kong, but we also give some general tips on Amazon FBA selling in general to start.

It consists of two parts, 1) Finding a good product and 2) optimizing your Amazon listing once its listed.

Here are a few tools many Amazon sellers use, here are a couple our readers discuss:

  • Jungle Scout – One of the first and most diverse collection of Amazon seller tools out there.
  • AmaChete – a newer, more affordable tool for Amazon sellers.

Try out one that works best for you – to dig through the massive amounts of data to find products that have a good opportunity for you.

Easy To Buy From Chinese Factories

Hong Kong is where everyone setups up their business for their import and export business. It is right next door to Mainland China, without the complexities and headaches that you’d get in the PRC.

So your Chinese factories, many of them, will already have a HK company and a Hong Kong bank account, most likely HSBC HK. You can pay them immediately, no fee, and they will receive the funds almost at the same time.

You can envision one of those drug deals in the movies, or hostage situations. One side brings the “goods” (drugs, hostage, etc) and the buyer brings the cash. Well, in more modern action movies, it’s not a suitcase of cash anymore. Instead its a laptop or a code that sends the funds to their bank account with the press of a button.

Not to correlate drug dealing and buying from factories, but you can be inside their factory for the deal. You finish doing a quality inspection, and whip out your HSBC Hong Kong online banking afterwards. Show them you transferred the funds (spin the laptop around and show the screen). Also you’ll have a reference number on the spot. They can check that same instant. They confirm the funds received, and they let the container ship leave the factory dock.

If you do this from an overseas bank, it would at least be 24 hours or so, and much higher fees. Are you buying from many factories and doing a lot of factories transactions often? You can save a ton of time, fees, and headaches by having a HSBC HK bank account.

Low or Zero Percent Tax

The corporate tax rate in Hong Kong is 16.5%, which is low already in the global index. On top of that, if you can prove you’re an offshore business, you can get a 0% exemption on the earnings you make outside of Hong Kong.

If you’re selling in Amazon USA, then, that isn’t Hong Kong right? Enjoy this offshore tax while also being in a great jurisdiction like Hong Kong. This way you can enjoy the legal protection and corporate image. Best of both worlds.

Amazon Has Overseas Sellers Programs That Make It Easy

Amazon allows sellers from around the world to sell in the Amazon USA marketplace. And now that you can piggyback off their fulfillment operations via FBA (fulfillment by Amazon). No longer do you need the headaches of a warehouse and logistics center in USA.

Buy your products from the factory in China, pay from your HSBC HK bank account, and ship them direct to the Amazon FBA warehouse in America.

Once the sales start to come in, Amazon pays out the sales proceeds every two weeks. Get an account with Payoneer and have the funds sent direct to Hong Kong. Nice and smooth.

Don’t get left behind with others who have more complex business operations. Take it from me, e-commerce was a lot, LOT harder ten years ago. Nowadays, you don’t even need a website, just load up in Amazon and get the sales payments twice a month.

Credit Card + Phone Verification

We have gotten a lot of attention from Amazon entrepreneurs going through the HK setup process, and a good question we received is below:

A problem I see is they’re asking for an international credit card (which my HK company does not have- just UnionPay). How did you do it? some of their support articles and comments from people on the internet seem to indicate they need to verify that you have a phone number in HK too.Alvaro

This is why we suggest people to apply for a credit card at the bank – the same time they go in for a new account opening.

Phone number, people use online numbers like Skype in.

Can Grow Into More Business Opportunities Later

Selling on Amazon is a great business. Lots of people are making good monthly income from. But maybe once you get the sales coming in and the business running, you want to try something else.

No problem, you can leverage the power of this Hong Kong company for your new venture too! You can apply for the many merchant account options and get that connected direct to your Hong Kong business bank account. Open your own shopping cart and pay direct via Shopify or another cloud based shopping cart.

Can You Sell on Amazon USA with a Hong Kong company?

Yes, this is possible. You register your Amazon seller account with your Hong Kong business registration certificate. It will ask you a million and one times if you are American or not. You need to be a non-American to do this – legally. But for those non-USA citizens, this is a great way to connect your Amazon USA sales to your Hong Kong business.

You can then have Amazon send money to your Payoneer or World First account and then receive the funds in your Hong Kong bank directly. With the funds in Hong Kong, you can then directly wire money to your Chinese factory. Often times they have a Hong Kong bank account, such as HSBC, so there are no fees and the transfer happens within seconds.

Talk about fast and efficient! This is pretty close to F2C (Factory to Consumer) – you can also read up a blog post where we discuss F2C

Will I Receive USD or HKD (Hong Kong dollars) from Amazon payments?

The next most popular question is what funds you will receive. Most think they must receive Hong Kong dollars and get hit on the foreign exchange (FX) fees. But there are other options. We discuss this a lot in our member’s forum for client.

Here’s an interesting answer from one of our clients:

There are a couple of companies that can keep your money in USD and have way lower fees than Payoneer. We are looking at OFX right now and also World First. OFX has an office in HK. Looks like that is what we will do. And then link to Hk bank account once we have itGFA Client

Many of our clients have also been using Remitsy as a way to get money into China successfully while banking is pending.

Of course, these policies and fees are always changing, so best to ask these service providers.

Connecting HSBC HK to Amazon

While there have been people saying that Amazon won’t wire to Hong Kong – I have had readers (as of October 2016) tell me that they can add their HSBC Hong Kong business bank account to their account directly.

No 9 digit routing — and few people online say dont use first 3 of the 12 number of your account (say 1st 3 numbers are bank not account number)

After a lot of chats with Amazon seller support, my contact was able to connect his HSBC Hong Kong bank directly, simply by choosing Hong Kong and then using the above trick to get the account number to fit. Others please help update me.

Doing Your Amazon FBA Bookkeeping

So once people get the Hong Kong company setup for their Amazon business, they then ask how do they best balance their accounting books? While there is no difference in bookkeeping for an e-commerce business as there is for any business, there is a setup that many sellers have been using.

This is called A2X Accounting – it is a plugin on top of Xero software that connects automatically to FBA’s database and imports all your sales numbers in. This way you can save time from data entry as well as worrying about “fat fingers” and other issues with humans.

What Do You Think? Ready to Leverage Hong Kong for your Amazon FBA Business?

So I know how stressful it is when structuring your corporation. Or even more stressful it is to restructure and close down a company and move funds and assets to another. But that is the only way we grow and stay competitive.

I’d love to hear any and all comments. Maybe you don’t agree – please share! You should be at a certain level to maintain the upkeep costs of an international business. And also able to come to Hong Kong at least once for the bank account opening. We offer services for Amazon sellers and online business owners who aren’t in Hong Kong to make the process as simple and smooth.

If you like this article and blog, we’d be ecstatic if you’d consider our HKVIP Hong Kong registration package. We will take care of everything from A to Z. We work with a lot of Amazon sellers and will give you pointers and tips we have seen along the way.

Even one of those tips during the setup process could save and make you thousands of dollars, so we hope to see you soon!

Find Your Taste With Les 5 Chef’s Miznon Gourmet Street Food

In the time since Les 5 Chef’s opened its doors in Shekou, the fine dining restaurant has built up a reputation for its high quality cuisine at reasonable prices. So when they announced the opening of their new restaurant called Les 5 Chef’s Miznon, naturally it caught the curiosity of many a food lover in the city. Shenzhen Party went to check out the latest culinary endeavor.

At first glance, Les 5 Chef’s Miznon is probably not what most people would have been expecting from the people behind the original Les 5 Chef’s. The interior consists of exposed foundations with bright graffiti and blackboards of food specials. From the Hong Kong style open style bar, hip music plays onto the streets where there are the neighboring hole in the wall restaurants and stores.

One of the restaurant’s partners is Harry, who spent 35 years opening restaurants, hotels and cruise liners before embarking on Les 5 Chef’s. For him, Les 5 Chef’s Miznon has a very clear and distinct concept. “Les 5 Chef’s is international fine dining. Here, at Les 5 Chef’s Miznon, we make gourmet street food. It’s Middle East style. We serve roasted vegetables, chicken, stuffed pita. Its high quality ingredients, high quality taste, for a reasonable price.”

The idea for Miznon came about when Harry kept receiving requests from customers at Les 5 Chef’s. “We have a lot of Israeli customers and they came to me many times, ‘Harry, we love your food, but can you do our food.’ I was many times before in Israel and I know how to make their food so I said, ‘Yes, but we will make a completely different concept to the 5 Chef’s.”

“It took time to find the flavor. Israeli taste is very specific so we adapt the food so that everybody likes it. For example, for the Chinese taste, we will give a little bit of spiciness inside, so the customer can order it spicy if they want to have spicy or not.”

In fact, it is from the restaurant’s Israeli origins that the restaurant takes its name Miznon, which means ‘Canteen’ in Hebrew. Although to refer to Miznon simply as a canteen would be to do a disservice to its extensive and exciting food menu.

Customers can choose from twenty four different pitas including meat, seafood, and vegetable fillings. The Roasted Chicken is one of the stand-out items on the menu, which goes well with any of the ten roasted vegetables dishes. That is all without mentioning any of the soups, salads or noodle dishes.

Harry is asked to pick out some of the most popular dishes. “For me, it is the Lamb Chili Onion Pita. We use only the Lamb Tenderloin so it is very soft. The next one is the Falafel Pita, because we have lots of options for vegan people and vegetarians coming here. There is also the Roasted Cauliflower. First it is cooked, then roasted. We use only Greek or Australian olive oil to roast it. It is one of the best sellers.”

While picking the roasted tomatoes straight from the vine and as you try the roasted cauliflower and ask yourself if cauliflower has always tasted this good, one thing starts to become clear; Les 5  Chef’s Miznon uses only the finest, freshest and healthiest ingredients. “Our beef is coming from Australia. Our vegetables we pick up every two days from a farm four hours from here by driving. The hummus, every day we make fresh three times. We peel the chickpeas. It’s a lot of work, but it’s much smoother this way.”

Another element of the concept at Les 5 Chef’s Miznon is the complimentary sauce station, which customers are encouraged to take advantage of. “We have here 8 sauces. We have for European tastes and Chinese tastes. We give the recommendations, but I really have to say that they find their own taste,” explained Harry.

Yet to say Les 5 Chef’s Miznon is somewhere only to come to enjoy a meal would be only part of the story. It’s as much a place to meet friends to chat over some drinks. The restaurant boasts draft craft beer all the way from Ingolstadt, in the heart of Bavaria. Herrnbrau is available in four different beers and cannot be found anywhere else in China, let alone Shenzhen. At RMB20 for 300ml, it’s most likely the best value you will find around too.

The spirits menu is equally generously priced and well stocked. When you can get yourself a rum or gin for RMB25, it’s no wonder then that many customers end up staying at Les 5 Chef’s Miznon long after they have finished their meal. As Harry says, “What we do is we close when the last customer has left. So sometimes we are open till three or four o’clock.”
