Celebrating The 25th Anniversary of The HKSAR with HKETO Jakarta's 'Marvels in Hong Kong' Event

Year 2022 marks the 25th Anniversary of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) establishment. To commemorating this huge milestone, the Hong Kong Economic and Trade Office, Jakarta (HKETO Jakarta) has launched Marvels in Hong Kong – a dedicated event series to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the establishment of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) and to showcase Hong Kong’s latest developments in areas such as arts, culture and tourism on 24th August 2022.
We were honoured to be invited to the media launch ceremony in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia held by HKETO Jakarta jointly with the Hong Kong Tourism Board (HKTB). It marks the official debut of the event series here in Malaysia.
Addressing the media launch ceremony, the Director-General of HKETO Jakarta, Mr Law Kin-wai, said that Hong Kong is a highly international city with immense appeal beyond its widely known advantages in business and trade. He cited as an example the landmark development of the West Kowloon Cultural District (WKCD), an emerging global arts and cultural hub featuring world-class attractions including the Xiqu Centre, the M+ museum and the Hong Kong Palace Museum.

Mr Law added that under the 14th Five-Year Plan of the country, Hong Kong is clearly positioned as an East-meets-West centre for international cultural and arts exchange. The city will further consolidate its relevant edge with the completion of the East Kowloon Cultural Centre, the Lyric Theatre Complex in the WKCD, and the Kai Tak Sports Park as a mega performance venue.

Also speaking at the event, the Regional Director of Southeast Asia of the HKTB, Mr Raymond Chan, said that Hong Kong has always been close to the hearts of Malaysian travellers, and Malaysia is an important key source market for Hong Kong. With the new infrastructure development and experiences in Hong Kong, the city cannot wait to welcome Malaysian travellers back to Hong Kong to experience the new tourism offerings.

Authentic Eurasian Meals at Memorie Cafe

Food plays a vital part in our daily lives and it is intricately intertwined with our culture. A lot can be learned about a particular culture by simply exploring the food that was passed down from one generation to the next. Although Malaysia is rich in a myriad of traditional cuisines, its Eurasian counterpart is yet to make its name on the global scene, hence, Memorie Café was launched as the first Eurasian restaurant franchise in Malaysia to showcase the diverse cultures in our harmonious nation.
Established in 2016, Memorie Café takes visitors on a journey through time; it allows them to experience the European influence on Malaysia and better understand how the unique flavor profiles came about over the last few hundred years. With the launch of its flagship store in one of the biggest tourist destinations in Malaysia – Sunway Pyramid, Memorie Café is set to be a popular attraction where domestic and international travelers can drop by as they visit Malaysia’s capital and relish in 500 years of Eurasian culture.
Diners of Memorie Café will be able to try a variety of iconic Eurasian dishes at Memorie Café; these would include the famous Ikan Bakar Portugese, Portuguese Tarts, Devil Curry Chicken, Eurasian Lamb Smore, and many more, at affordable prices. It is timely to reintroduce the Eurasian culture that is well-known in Melaka, given that Malaysia has now reopened its borders to welcome foreign visitors.
We have paid a visit to the Memorie Café at Sunway Pyramid recently to indulge ourselves in iconic Eurasian dishes. We have tried some of their signature dishes included;

Resonating Microcosms - Liquified Light Color, Sunrise and Sunset
The Rooftop Garden, which features countless ovoids, is an art space that transforms through changes in the natural environment and the presence of people.

Under the sun, the ovoids reflect the world around them.

As the sun sets, the ovoids begin to shine by themselves. When an ovoid is pushed by a person, blown by the wind, or hit by rain, it shines brightly and emits a sound tone as it rises back up on its own. The ovoids around it also respond one after another, resonating out the same sound tone and light color.
