Photographs by Sam from Sam is Home : )

Hey everyone! (I know I’ve been seriously slacking on the blog… but I’m going to post more regularly from now on.)
I’m back from my holiday trip to Thailand. If you missed my quick message here it is again: The giveaway was closed on 8th and I’ve already contacted all my winners. (Two of you still haven’t replied to my messages yet, go check your facebook inbox girls!) Thank you for participating, the next one is coming up soon! The Style Voyager is going to be six-month old on 20th, April, time for celebration : P
I’m busy dealing with the photos I took during the trip. There are so many but I promise they’re gonna be up real soon. This is a post I’ve been working on for a while now. Hope you enjoy it : )
I was wearing a Topshop dress as skirt in the photos. I love the ruffle details on the waist and the bottom of the dress. But once again it is a UK size 8 and it is a little too long for my height (sigh.) As for the the accessories, I was wearing these adorable H&M sandals (they are usually really comfortable, but no so much walking up and down hills.) These H&M sunglasses are my new favourite. They are really wide but not so opaque, very balanced choice for Spring. Sorry for the silly dance moves, I couldn’t help it : P

Sweet Tania from T Like Bubble Tea introduced me and Sam Cafe Loisl during a recent meet-up.
This lovely Viennese cafe is located on a quiet terrace in Sheung Wan. Run by a Austrian/German couple living in Hong Kong, Cafe Loisl has the closest you can get to the true Viennese flavour. It’s a cozy pocket-size version of the magnificant Cafe Central in Vienna, with Sachertorte and Mozart chocolates in gilded glass containers on permenant display (How much better can you get in Hong Kong!!). I ordered a Apfelstrudel with cream. Usually my first choice would be Gugelhupf with cream but the cafe only serves it on weekends. They have some seriously good coffee, so good that I decided to bring my mom for another visit : P

Here are some pictures taken on my second visit. I was really impressed by how passionate the Barista (in the picture above) is about making coffee. The coffee is decent and the service excellent. It just feels so much better than the bad chain store coffee we Hong Kong people are suffering from.
I’m a fan of Viennese Cafe culture. Cafe Loisl may not be the palace-like Viennese Cafe you’re picturing in your head, (in fact they don’t even have the right furniture yet… )but it offers just the right amount of European flavour and coziness most of us are looking for.
