As 2017 draws closer to an end, it can only mean one thing: EAT EVERYTHING and roll on 2018!
Okay, while that remains true, let’s get down to serious business – has anyone made their new year’s resolutions? If you haven’t, don’t hit the panic button just yet... Set some new year’s resolutions with us at our last weekend of the Fashion Walk x Foodie Holiday Market (29, 30 and 31 December)!
#1 Eat well
We can’t emphasise this enough. It’s probably on your list almost every year, but you’re not sure whether you have fulfilled this resolution at the end of the year. Honestly, eating well is an ongoing journey, and it’s a conscious decision to put in that extra effort just for the sake of your well-being. But, trust us, it’s worth it. Your body will thank you in the long run!
Want to put in minimal effort but still want to eat well? Leave it in the hands of NOSH’s healthy meal-delivery programme. NOSH has taken Hong Kong by storm by reinventing the takeaway business. To deliver on its “Eat Smarter. Live Better” motto, all NOSH recipes are under 550 calories, made with the best seasonal ingredients sourced globally, and they package all their products in biodegradable materials. At the Holiday Market, NOSH will be featuring some of their hot favourites including sriracha-marinated chicken with black beans, quinoa, brown rice and guacamole, roasted tomato soup with croutons and roasted salmon with stir-fried udon.
#2 Embrace your fun side
You’ve hopefully realised by now that you can’t take life too seriously sometimes. Add some fun and colour to your life with these cute illustrated creations by Dodolulu!
Dodolulu is a whimsical illustration brand inspired by the small moments that touch us all, happy or sad, to remind people who feel the same way that they are not alone. As an illustrator based in Hong Kong, Dodolulu likes to present the people she draws as living poetic lives and finding the planet a beautiful place to be. The characters are full of pride and are sophisticated, quirky and naive, and each of them is as unique as you and me. Dodolulu is bringing along a collection of her illustrated paper products, like stickers, calendars, notebooks and cards, as well as a line of accessories, including phone cases and handmade hats and bags.
#3 Treat yo’self
Work hard. Play hard. Life’s too short to not indulge and pamper yourself. Remember to give yourself a little TLC amidst all the hustle and bustle and treat your palate well.
Established in 1911, Sabatino Tartufi carries only the most highly regarded truffle species, presenting a range of original truffle products. The blend of modern technology and traditional recipes creates the ultimate truffle experience. All truffles are processed and preserved to maintain their freshness and high quality.

Just like what Avril Lavigne’s lyrics to 'Complicated' spell out: chill out, whatcha yelling for. Lay back, it's all been done before. And if, you could only let it be and you will see....
We get it. Life can be challenging and it has its ups and downs. But through it all, remember to take a chill pill once in awhile!
The incredibly N*ICE gourmet ice pops. 100% all natural, 100% handmade in small batches here in Hong Kong, using only fantastic ingredients – most are 100% vegan too! Inspired by Mexican paletas, creative seasonal cocktails, health-conscious juicing and decadent Western and traditional Chinese desserts, these ice lollies come in a seasonal variety of exciting and uniquely nuanced flavours, including N*ICE’s signature boozy pops.
Bonus: Foodie eMarket
Avid Foodie followers will know that we launched our eMarket a few months ago, stocking your favourite #zerowaste products like our top-selling metal straws (with cleaning brush), lunch boxes and branded tote bags. With people buying the metal straws in big quantities for kids’ birthday parties and random gifts, we sure know they are great for mass gifting! So, yes, we’re setting up a booth at the market where you can stock up on your #zerowaste presents. Not only that – we’re selling other eMarket favourites such as our newly stocked Puni Puni Sushi plushies, gourmet salts from RIVSALT, delicious vegan Buddha’s Garden pasta sauces and our very own Foodie crystal wine glasses!
