Last year, I went to Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra's complimentary performance at the ArtisTree, and it made an awesome break from work. After Hour Classics, as the event was called, will be on again this year starting at 6:30pm from tomorrow, 15 February 2012, to Friday, 17 February 2012, in none other than the ArtisTree in Tai Koo Place. Tomorrow they shall be featuring the Robert Ho Fellows in Concert, with Fu Shui-miao on the viola. The theme on Thursday will be about Forests, conducted by Francesco Lecce-Chong. On Friday, why not have a weekend rendezvous at their Classical Affair, featuring David Thompson on the horn?

Caffè Habitu, the city's very own upscale coffee chain, is offering Latte Art Workshops from now until March 2012, and they would prefer to call it Picasso meeting expresso. At their Coffee Academy and Roasting Studio, their professional baristas will be showing you the mysteries of creating patterns and designs on the coffee foam. Within two hours, they will go through lectures on the delicate balance of mixing espresso and milk, as well as hands on practice with your pouring and etching skills.
Feeling patriotic? They also have a Tourist Cupping Class [Read: no pun intended, I just copied the name off their site], which will specifically teach you how to draw a Bauhinia, our beloved city flower, on your coffee. There is a wide variety of time slots between February and March 2012, and all you need to do is to buy a ticket from any of their coffee shops, and register online for the time you fancy learning.
