Celebrate Chinese New Year at Four Seasons Bahrain Bay

Four Seasons Hotel Bahrain Bay is all set to offer its customers a rare dining experience to mark the beginning of the Chinese New Year.
Re Asian Cuisine by Wolfgang Puck will ring in the Year of the Rooster on Jan. 27 with a one-night-only dining experience that will include an array of festive dishes.
Re Asian Cuisine’s “Night Market” will be enhanced with live-cooking stations creating an authentic live market atmosphere both in the restaurant and in the adjacent Blue Moon Lounge by Wolfgang Puck.
Executive Chef Brian Becher has created a special menu that begins with chicken and wagyu beef soup dumplings, followed by the roasted whole duckling served with bao buns. The forever favorite lo mai yurn, sticky rice with local lamb and tangerine puree, will perfectly prepare the palates for “The Five Blessings” representing the five blessings of the New Year — longevity, riches, peace, wisdom and virtue — including wagyu beef potstickers, black tiger prawn har gow, shrimp XO dumplings, beef and prawn chiu chow and vegetable dumplings.
The several live-action stations will also showcase delicacies such as the aromatic roasted duckling, Chinese New Year dumplings, crispy lamb belly and longevity noodles among other festive dishes.
To put a sweet ending to the Chinese Night Market event, Pastry Chef Pierre Chambon will prepare tempting Chinese rolled ice-cream in green tea, chocolate and litchi flavors along with his sweet fruit dumplings filled with pear, tangerine and toasted sesame.
From Jan. 27 to Feb. 8, the restaurant will offer special five-or seven-course menus that include a generous dim sum plate with chiu chow, dan dan and XO shrimp dumplings, wagyu beef pot stickers, Hong Kong-style black bass served with shitake mushrooms, filet of beef “Sichuan Au Poivre” with wok fried green beans on the side and a dessert duo to mention a few of the carefully crafted menus.
In addition guests will be offered an epicurean journey every first Tuesday of the month to experience the authentic world of the Asian street food culture spiced with world-renowned restaurateur Wolfgang Puck’s modern take on traditional Asian cuisine.

Hyundai hosts female Saudi drivers in Korea

Three Saudi-based female influencers have visited Korea as part of Hyundai’s outreach to women drivers in the Kingdom, and as brand ambassadors for the carmaker.

The three women include entrepreneur and lifestyle influencer Bayan Linjawi; radio presenter, travel blogger, and fashion lover, Shadia Abdul Aziz; and business-owner and fashion career coach, Reem Faisal. 

During their tour of Korea they received detailed briefings about Hyundai and its products, and toured production, design and research facilities. 

The program gave them an understanding of the innovative and advanced thinking that underpins today’s Hyundai models, and also included opportunities to experience Korean culture and heritage.

“This is an exciting moment for women and for motoring in Saudi Arabia, and Hyundai is committed to playing an active part in this historic change,” said Hyundai’s Head of Operations for Africa and the Middle East, Mike Song. “Hyundai’s models will appeal strongly to women from all walks of life, from younger more style-conscious drivers, to those who value practicality and quality. Our brand ambassadors are part of our strategy to highlight those qualities to women as they take their place behind the steering wheel.”

Hyundai has identified design and safety as key buying factors for female drivers in Saudi Arabia, and offers these attributes in a variety of segments, including sedans and SUVs. It has identified established names including the Azera, Sonata and Tucson as key products to promote, as well as the new Kona premium compact SUV.

The brand ambassadors will use a selection of these Hyundai models as they join the first ranks of Saudi female drivers, and will share their experiences with fans and followers. 

Included in their roles will be being part of digital commercials, social media postings, and event appearances under the umbrella of Hyundai’s Saudi campaign #whatsnext.
