Looking for last minute plans for the long Easter weekend? Here are our picks to spend an easy and rewarding break without hopping on a plane.
Salvatore Ferragamo Afternoon Tea
When: Every weekend in April from 2pm–6pm
Working in collaboration with the Mandarin Oriental, Macau, Salvatore Ferragamo is presenting its sleek new spring/summer collection together with specially created treats that take inspiration from the brand new fashion items. Take for instance the Ferragamo Studio bag with the iconic Gancini pattern, matching perfectly with the Gancini chocolate cake; bright red Varina ballet flats matching with the bow-decorated Vara mousse cake; or the soft, buttery leather of the pink Joanne handbag pairing with the equally gorgeous Joanne butter cake. With eight different types of sweet and savoury delights served with classic scones with clotted cream and jam and a selection of fine teas and coffee, this is sure to be the go-to spot for Ferragamo fans. Guests who partake in the Ferragamo afternoon tea set can receive a complimentary souvenir from the One Central Mall boutique.
