Drink your personality
If you like taking quizzes to learn what type of person you are, this one might be perfect for you! Aqua’s newest concept, Personality Pours, allows you to take an eight-question online quiz to find a cocktail that best suits your personality. From names such as The Visionary, The Trendsetter and The Rebel, each cocktail uses a different blend of liquor to suit its name.

The speakers are food critic and journalist Lisa Cam, photographer and content director of Maximal Concepts Jesper Mcllroy and Kenneth Ng, the director and deputy general manager of Dining Workshop. Expect a night of insightful sharing and meeting other curious foodies! Free entry.

Help to compost plant plastics
Vegetarian pioneer MANA! has started a petition to urge the Hong Kong government to recognise the benefits of properly collecting and composting eco-friendly materials. More and more eco-conscious restaurants in Hong Kong are using alternative packaging such as plant-based PLA, a plastic material that is advertised to be biodegradable. However, plant plastics cannot be recycled and require industrial composting facilities to compost. Without this important step, plant plastics take decades to biodegrade.
