editor’s note

Whether topped with her signature cotton candy, sugar flowers or lashings of fresh cream, the cakes from Bonnae Gokson’s Sevva and Ms B’s Cakery are always a treat, rewarding both the eyes and the taste buds. No wonder the queen of cakes’ creations are so highly sought after for weddings. They now make an appearance in Bonnae’s latest project, Weddings, Butterflies and the Sweetest Dreams, the follow-up to her first book, the award-winning Butterflies and All Things Sweet. Over two years in the making, this passion project applies Bonnae’s exquisite taste and expert eye to all the details of weddings, from invitations, decor and bouquets to cakes and centrepieces. In our cover story (p.68), Bonnae tells of the inspiration behind the lavish coffee-table book, curating its chic contents and creating its…

love in lebanon

Alexandra Chen and Mohammad Zakaria’s whirlwind romance was the stuff of storybooks—and so was their wedding. Our protagonists are a Hong Kong-born, Harvard-educated child protection and mental health specialist (Alexandra), who is Christian and works in conflict zones, and a Palestinian Muslim refugee working as a civil engineer in humanitarian aid management, who has lived through wars and bombings (Mohammad). Their story begins in a refugee camp on the Syrian border where they are both working. Their time together is fleeting and, yet, in just five days they manage to fall head over heels in love. “In the midst of this maelstrom of violent armed conflict in Syria, the heated election in Lebanon and immigration barriers that made our long-distance relationship almost impossible, I met the love of my life while…

italian romance

When Keith Poon decided to propose to his girlfriend, Flossie Chang, his plans were meticulous. He wanted to pop the question overseas, so he waited until the couple were on a trip in Seoul. There, he selected his location—Namsan Park—and coordinated with a photographer, envisioning a snowy winter wonderland as his backdrop. “But at the last minute it became really warm and all the snow melted,” Flossie recalls. “Keith freaked out.” The daughter of a prominent investment professional and the head of his family’s textile manufacturing business, Flossie and Keith met through one of Flossie’s future bridesmaids at karaoke. They dated for five-and-a-half years before becoming engaged and held their wedding celebrations a year later: the first at Lake Como on May 8 followed by a reception in Hong Kong on…

enchanting versatility

We all like to believe in fate, particularly when it comes to meeting the love of our life. And Sarah Zhuang is a woman who knows a thing or two about that, as she has been destined since birth to work with the world’s most beautiful stones. Zhuang comes from a long line of renowned jewellers, but with her eponymous brand she has carved out an aesthetic that she says is “as unique as women themselves.” In both her work and life, Zhuang celebrates femaleness.
