在香港如何申請美國簽證前年我計劃在聖誕節去美國旅行,跟當時還在美國讀書的LUK遠距離後第一次再見。
可是香港人到美國需要辦理簽證,又要面試,相對一些免簽證國家或可網上辦理簽證的地方,總是覺得超級複雜。
網上又沒有很多人在討論,當時都感到挺迷茫。
不過現在回想起來申請美國簽證其實也是很簡單的啦!~

1)首先你要知道一些基本資料 
費用:HKD$1,280
交費用的方法:到7-11付款
美國總領事館香港及澳門資料:香港中環花園道26號
電話: 2523-9011
要準備的東西:近照一張、特區護照、工作證明(如強積金、稅單等等)
簽證有效年期:一般為10年,也有人只有5年或不被批准,這就要由面試人員決定了

2)到美國國務院的網站--->這裡開始辦理申請美國簽證網上預約手續網站的指示也十分清晰,只要跟著問題也不大,記住要先付款,後預約

在選擇哪種簽證的問題上,只要你是一般到美國旅行的朋友,你就是申請B1/B2簽證
不同的簽證,費用也有所不同,不要選錯啊!

3)領取或簽收護照及簽證
由於美國簽證會貼在你的護照上,因此面試後,人員會將你的護照沒收,然後再安排掛號或你上門領取。因為掛號不需另外收費,所以我挺建議使用掛號,可選擇公司或家中
(留意一定要本人收取,郵差叔叔會檢查你身分證啊)
**一般一星期內就會收到你的美國簽證了~以下是自行領取的地址:

  • 尖沙咀麼地道75號南洋中心地下60-66號舖 (Unit 60-66 on Ground Floor, South Seas Centre, 75 Mody Road, Kowloon)
  • 香港灣仔謝菲道208-214號利來大廈地下1號舖 (Shop No.1 on G/F Including A Portion of Open Yard, Lee Loy Building 208, 208A-208C, 210, 212 & 214 Jaffe Road, Hong Kong)
  • 觀塘鴻圖道80號鴻圖工業大廈地下1號 (Workshop Unit No.1 on Ground Floor, Hung To Industrial Building, No. 80 Hung To Road, Kwun Tong)
  • 澳門 - Macau澳門黑沙環第五街3-3B永豐工業大廈地下A座G/F, 3B Veng Fung Industrial Building, Rua Cinco Bairro Da Areia Preta, Macau

4)注意事項:

  • 一般最快的可供預約的日期會在三星期後 (當然旺淡季也有分別),而批核及簽收美國簽證亦需時,因此我會建議大家最少早三個月前申請,以免因簽證問題延誤行程
  • 在7/11付款的截止時間是下午5點(週一至週日)。比如:您今天在下午4點50支付您的簽證費,當晚11點後您的簽證費收據號將會被激活。如果在下午5點之後支付,您的簽證收據號將在第二天晚上11點後被激活

Hello everyone! It has been awhile since I posted something so it is about time I shared something. This topic is of special request from Bee, the topic is everything there is to know about Western College Parties (note I use college and university interchangeable). While she didn’t get to participate in any while she was in Hong Kong, I did while going to university in North America. So to share my experiences of western college parties and feed Bee’s curiosity below is everything you need to know about the party life.
The first thing that needs to be said, is that college parties are not like the movies. Sure the premise is similar but they are WAY toned down. There is not limitless drinks, headliner bands (See old School, it’s a great movie), gorgeous girls and muscular guys. Nonetheless they can be a great time.
The central aspect to these parties is of course drinks! Now for my Chinese friends we typically won’t drink Baijiu, surprise, surprise.

+Drinks!+
Below are many of the main drinks you will find at a part.

1)      Beer:

an obvious choice that I am sure many of you would have guessed. My personal favorites are the Samuel Adams seasons brews and a good Asian beer (TsingTao or Chang). Unfortunately, most of these college parties are on a college budget. Meaning you will likely be drinking Keystone, Busch Light or if you’re lucky bud light.

2)      Jungle Juice:


This is a mixed drink where by the party host , usually a frat house, will mix alcohol, juice and fruit into a cooler making some sort of concoction  that will be sure to get more than a few drunk and drunk fast. To be honest it actually doesn’t taste that good but it is a cheap drink and easy to get drunk on. My personal recipe recommendation includes 1 bottle of Smirnoff Ice, 1 bottle of Hawaiian punch, 1 2L of ginger ale and add some sliced oranges from the school cafeteria if you can get them for free. Of course double the ingredients to make a larger batch!

3)      Mixed drinks:
Now there is a reason I didn’t call these cocktails, they do not call for a slice of lemon peel or a fancy liqueur to add flavor. These are the bare bone mixers, I am talking bourbon and coke if it is a good drink, cheap vodka and Gatorade if it is a bad one.  While there are not bad and a good alternative to beer if you do not want to feel bloated, take it easy on the sugary mixers. They will make your hangover ten times worse.

4)      Box Wine:
A classic favorite for sorority girls, box “wine” makes the part seem a little bit classier while not being so at all. As much as I would not like to admit it actually doesn’t taste too bad. Good to try but best to avoid unless you are a girl with her friends. The one night I did have it gave me one of the worst hangovers of my life. Plus as a guy it is kind of a sissy drink.
Now enough about drinks let’s get down to some of the types of parties on that you will find in a Western college. While there are so many to talk about, I will condense a list and try to highlight some of the main ones.
+Party Types!+
· The College sponsored ones:
 These are most frequent in freshman year (1st year) and absolutely cringe worthy. Usually these parties do not have alcohol as everyone is usually underage so they get people out by giving away free school merchandise. Given that there are no drinks, besides the few that were able to booze within their soda bottle, it can get boring real fast. Furthermore, given that it is usually freshmen that attend these it usually pretty awkward with little mingling. 

· The casual dorm party: 
So you, our small group of friends and a few people from across the hall decided to have a few drinks in your dorm room, this is the casual dorm party. A great time to hang-out with the bros or catch some solid facetime with the cute co-ed. Often these parties will be centered around a game of beer pong or flip cup. (see part 2 of 2, for party games coming next week).   

· The intense dorm party: 
Okay so now your friends have called some of their friends and this casual dorm party just got a bit louder. Nobody is dancing yet, but everyone is having a great time and are 4-5 drinks deep. It is likely this party is no long just in your dorm but also the four adjacent rooms and even then it is too tight to move freely.  You will be lucky to not have one beer spilt on you.

· The Senior run “awesome” party:
 These are the kind of parties you loved going to I your first few years and organized in your last, they are particularly frequent in the last few weeks before summer, allowing the seniors to party off their final weeks of college life. Usually these have some sort of special aspect to them, either jungle juice is provided, a sports team victory party or a large game is played such as beer Olympics or gin buckets. 

· Theme parties:
These parties are often similar to the senior parties but with a special and depending which one can be a lot of fun. One of my personal favorites is a “Round the World” party. This is where a group of friends host the party across several rooms, where each room serves alcohol from a different country. Such as the Mexico room has tequila, Russia room has Vodka, Italy room has wine, etc. Other great themed parties include, 80s style, animal, wear anything but clothes, toga and neon clothes. 

· The Ragers: 
The final and last party type I am writing about and I have saved the best for last. This is usually the last party of the night and you have had a bit to drink so you are not too sure how you got there. This is the one where the jungle juice is flowing, the floor is too sticky from the spilt drinks, the music is too loud to think but you are having a great time. These parties always include dancing and if you are lucky you might find a cute dance or dance with your boyfriend/girlfriend. Although you might wake up in the morning with a bad headache or some regrets, there is no denying you had an epic time.
While that is all for this post, check in again later this week for part 2! Part two will include a description of the best western part games, top tips for attending a western party, plus much more!

Since Bee and I grew up in vastly different cultures and in different parts of the world, there are many things from our childhood that the other wasn't able to experience. 
After developing a relationship I learned many  of the great Western style activities as a child I experienced that Bee hasn't been able too. I have compiled a list of the top 10 memories of my Childhood that Bee hasn't experienced that I would love to share with her! I hope that we can share them soon or perhaps someday with Kids of our own!
Top 10 Western Childhood memories:

1. +Christmas+:
-Okay not a surprising choice and also something that is generally celebrated around the world. But nothing is quite like Christmas in Canada. The snow, hot chocolate, the family together at home by the fire, makes for a pretty magical movie like experience. Not to mention the adrenaline toy rush feeling as a kid, haha.
The ginger bread house we made last Christmas!(joy for fun, taste bad to eat)
2. Trick or Treating, Halloween:
-Always my second favorite holiday, trick or treating was always a thrill as a kid. It was exciting to get free candy from your neighbors all while competing with friends on you can fill their pill case with the most chocolate.  
Only downside is the frozen hands from carrying the heavy bag during the cold October night. 

3. Summertime Boating and BBQ:
-Hot dogs, steak and baked potato.....yum! Plus tubing (being pulled by a speed boat while in an inflatable tube) at the family cottage, was a lot of fun. 
Even though you were scared of falling off the tube but didn't want to show in front of the cousins. 

4. LaserTag/Paintball:
-I loved LaserTag as a kid and still do. Which later progressed to a love for paintball once my mother allowed me to play. I have actually gotten to play LaserTag with Bee, when she came to visit last December. We had so much although she killed me too much. I have a feeling paintball might be a lot harder to get her to play. 


5. Calgary Stampede:
-A big tradition here in Calgary, Stampede was always a highlight of my youth. It really kicked off the summer as the first big event after school was finished for the summer. I always loved the Rodeo and riding the horses among the western syle activities. Another favorite was the food! Deep fried Oreos, dip-n-dots ice cream and mini donuts, Yum!

6. Fishing:
- Okay I have a feeling this is likely something Bee would not like, haha but still a great memory is fishing with my father and friends. The satisfaction of catching a big trout was amazing for me and something great to experience. Canada has some of the best fishing in the world. I would recommend Salmon fishing on the west coast as a good spot. Trout fishing in Alberta is good too.

7. Camping:
-Speaking of summer camping was always something exciting to do. Although I didn’t go much the few times I did was always a blast. Setting up a tent, eating camp fire food, nature walks and having 100% family time was something always special. Not having a shower is a big downside though.

8. Rainy days and board games:
-A Western staple during a rainy day is to play board games. A family favorite was always Monopoly. It was fun to have the family together playing. I loved playing and especially winning, haha. As a kid I think my parents let me win but I will pretend that as a kid I was that smart to win every time.

9. Childhood Sport teams:
-This one will be tough to share with Bee but maybe someday with a kid of our own. I loved playing hockey as a kid, I also played basketball and soccer. It was exciting to play with a big group of friends, and compete in games. It was also special to have my family watch and cheer me on. The best part was the after-game stops for Pizza!  

10. Golf:
-Last but certainly not least, I loved golf as a kid. I loved to play the game with my father and friends as a kid and I still do today. I continue to golf and played for my college team. This is something I got to do with Bee too. I think she enjoyed it although maybe does not like to play as much as I haha. Nonetheless I hope Bee is still willing to play with me some.

話說我日前放工與友人相聚吃晚飯,當大家吹到意猶未盡而時間尚早的時候,當然會來個下場。在考慮老地方甜RR、糖伯虎之際,朋友E提議到新開的西式甜品店"會一會佢"。
哇,一看門面已經覺得好華麗,好似結婚的地方,全店都以白色為主,加上以拱門為間隔,十分高貴大方,這個裝修設計必定花了不少心機功夫。
到order甜品的時候喇,原來Menu是用白色的samsung tap,配襯全店之餘也增加高科技的感覺。


可是,看到價錢時心裡也哇了聲,價錢相對旺角的甜品店貴了一倍(當然啦,看人家的裝潢Menu都可以知道。。。而由於還是新開將期間,所有甜品大約有9折。)


我們總共點了三款甜品,第一款名叫太極(外表上其實看不出為何叫太極)由豆腐布甸蛋糕+芝麻雪糕+綠茶雪糕組成
點評:賣相好靚,有種森林精靈的感覺;味道方面只能用一般來形容,正常的味道,沒有什麼驚喜;甜品略嫌不夠凍

第二款看到大家都不禁左拍右拍,關門幾張,開門又幾張,因為這個鳥籠真的十分漂亮高級的說!
點評:它就是個雲呢拿雪糕芭菲的東東,有點淡淡的酒味,中間也有點層次,挺特別的。





第三款就是抺茶布甸。點評:賣相沒有先前的般華麗,也有它應該有的抺茶味道,不過對我來說有點淡

光顧當天是星期三,大約9時多,人流不太多,我們吹水坐了大約一小時都未有新的客人進來,可能是太早的關係。大約10時多,開始有其他人在等候,我們就離去了。
總括來說,Le Dessert Palais無論在店舖裝潢、甜品的Presentation方面都別具心思,特別適合情侶在這個浪漫的空間中聊天;而甜品味道方面就有待加強;這個價錢大概是有特別的日子或跟男朋友仔時才會再來了。
