I always dreamt of having a white Christmas when I was young. I wanted to be inside one of the Christmas cards, riding on Santa Claus’s sleigh cart, witnessing how Santa Claus was going to climb down to my apartment (well, through the water pipe I guess? There is no chimney in any building in Hong Kong.) and singing Christmas songs by the glitteringly-decorated Christmas tree. Now I realized that Christmas is a precious festive time when I can sit together with my friends and loved ones to share lives, good food and wine.
This year, I tried the Christmas dinner at JoJo located on the ground floor of St. Regis Hotel Bangkok.
Before the dinner started, there was Christmas carol performance. Students from a local international school were invited to perform by a giant Christmas tree. The atmosphere was festive and delightful with guests being entertained by the beauty of voice. The Hotel served canape and wine around, the mood of the guests were vibrant. I was also high-spirited.
The Christmas wine dinner
The Christmas dinner was a 5-course menu which was carefully sequenced. Each of the course was flawlessly prepared to reach the pleasing balance of rounded flavours. The main course was impressive – the lamb rack was so tender and enticing! I also like the dessert in which the pistachio ice cream was the star!

Chelsea was born in Hong Kong and is a genuine food lover. Her palate is especially sharp on Cantonese food, delicacies from Hong Kong and meat (especially beef, chicken and lamb). She is able to taste how the food is cooked and prepared. Besides, she is also a pro buffet gourmet because of her unlimited appetite. When she says ‘too sweet’, it may not be sweet for you as her preference for chocolate is 72++ dark chocolate.
