安提瓜和巴布达还遵循着很多让人熟悉的英国传统,比如有圣诞颂歌,还有自家制作的圣诞晚餐。沉浸在田园和煦的阳光中,体验着吸引人的安提瓜风俗,包括沙滩烧烤,现场乐队表演,和可口的加勒比浆果汁。

On Christmas Day, everyone is welcomed to the Annual Christmas Day Champagne Party at Nelson's Dockyard, organized by the Hourglass Foundation. It’s a must do for visitors.

It is held at the Antigua Yacht Club, and takes place on New Year’s Eve. Up to 40 or more yachts take part in the race, and afterwards you can enjoy fireworks conducted by the National Parks at the Dockyard.

整个岛屿为了庆祝这一佳节都洋溢着派对的气息。为了更好地享受您的至臻全球生活,一本安提瓜护照能解决所有问题,也是您最快的护照移民项目。

Many Chinese people immigrating to Vancouver tend to have higher demands. If you are living in an apartment, not a villa; if you choose a private school or your child is still in elementary school, you must choose a noble and elegant, high valued and great location apartment. We highly recommend Horseshoe Bay!

移民到温哥华的中国人往往对房屋品质有着更高的要求。如果在加拿大,您选择不住别墅,依然住公寓;如果首选私校,那么您必须要选择一套高贵典雅、无敌海景、优越地理位置、学区首屈一指的保值公寓,我们强力推荐马蹄湾一号

Neighbors with the Prime Minister and the celebrities, You and the nobilities are only a set of Horseshoe Bay away 与总理和名人做邻居,你和贵族之间只差一套马蹄湾一号

We would like to introduce a luxury apartment in West Vancouver, neighboring with the upper-class. Horseshoe Bay – It is built by the top luxury real estate developer Westbank.


我想在这里推荐一栋西温哥华豪华公寓,毗邻上层阶级等人物。马蹄湾一号 – 它是由奢华顶级地产建商西岸置业打造的。 There’s an apartment, away from the Downtown area, but still very convenient. It is close to many resorts and sitting on an invincible sea view.

马蹄湾的位置在西温哥华的偏北,是温哥华到著名滑雪小镇惠斯勒的必经之地,也是卑诗省渡轮的海港。

Although it looks far from Vancouver’s central area, it is only 20 minutes from Vancouver City Centre and less than 10 minutes from West Vancouver’s Park Royal Business Centre through highway.

虽然乍看之下离大温核心区有些远,事实上走高速公路到达温哥华市中心只需要20分钟时间,到西温哥华的Park Royal商业中心更是不到10分钟。

West Vancouver 西温哥华

It is a well known and the wealthiest area in Greater Vancouver, with the highest quality of residents, the highest income and the best environment. Most people living in the West is for its beautiful natural scenery and the sea view.

众所周知这是大温哥华最富饶的一个区。居民素质最高,收入最高,自然环境最好。在西温居住的人多数是冲着优美的自然风光,尤其是海景来的。 However, the price for independent housing in West Vancouver is at more than 5 million Canadian dollars that many potential buyers are unable to bear. Horseshoe Bay is an undoubtedly a new option. Compared to other West Vancouver's luxury housing, the price for Horseshoe Bay is relatively affordable while the invincible sea view and high quality of life are the same.

但是西温哥华动辄500万加币以上的独立屋价格让很多潜在买家无力承受,马蹄湾一号的出现无疑是给了他们一个新的选择。比起西温哥华的那些豪宅,马蹄湾一号的价格相对亲民不少。不变的依然是无敌海景和高端生活品质。 West Vancouver is the world's first choice for the rich. Horseshoe Bay is the most beautiful waterfront area of ​​West Vancouver, not only provide an invincible sea view and magnificent mountains.

西温哥华是全球富豪的择居首选地,马蹄湾是西温最美丽的海滨地区,不仅海景无敌还有壮美山峦。 To be continued… 待续。。。

A bit of China in Chinese New Year 舌尖上的中国年味

To celebrate Chinese New Year, I went to Guangzhou to explore little bit of China. I visited Wisca restaurant- one of restaurants of Michelin Shanghai list. This was one of the best meals I’ve have.   值此中国新年,我来到花城广州,探访舌尖上的中国年味。 “惠食佳”餐厅 米其林上海上榜饭店之一,便是地道的广东美味。 With that in mind, Here is my  best wishes and gratitude, respect, or admiration to salute to all those who are hardworking even during the New Year festivities and to those who ate, drank has been keeping passion and love to all delicacies !  
新年之际,美食之魅,在此送上我最好的祝福和感谢,向所有那些在新年假日期间辛勤工作的人们致敬,也向所有过年不停吃喝的朋友们,致以对美食的热情和钟爱最大的尊敬和赞美!
I often shuttle around, and the dedication to enjoy great food reduced with the pressure of life and work. That makes me more believe in the  philosophy of  being happy being and living in the present, and to never resist  the temptation of fine foods.   经常穿梭各地,对美食的执着,减少了生活和工作的压力,更体会到活在当下,美食在前的快感。
World integration, catering globalization! HAKKASAN  in London, Shanghai, San Francisco ; JEAN GEORGES in New York, Vancouver and Shanghai, all these are my top restaurants that fulfill your day.  For me, they are just like LV and PRADA, you never go wrong, but you need to pay more.  I prefer to explore more unique taste of local culinary specialties and these restaurants know how to do just that.   世界一体化,餐饮全球化!曾在伦敦、上海、旧金山去过HAKKASAN餐厅,以及上海、纽约及温哥华的JEAN GEORGES餐厅, 对我来说,这些餐厅就像LV 和PRADA,你永远不会选错,但当然你也需要支付更多。我更喜欢在不同的城市寻找当地饮食文化的特色和美味。 With many years of experience of  living in Guangdong, it let me have a profound understanding of the Chinese food culture. In my opinion, French cuisine equals to Chinese Cantonese cuisine, that is made from superior materials with exquisite technology skills; Italian cuisine equals to  Chinese Sichuan cuisine, that is rich flavor, but simple and easy to understand; German cuisine, is just Chinese Shandong cuisine, that is not much to show off. 多年前在广东生活的经历,让我对中华美食文化有了深刻的了解。在我看来,法国菜对等中国的粤菜,用料上乘,工艺精湛;意大利菜对等中国的川菜,味道浓郁,简明易懂;德国菜对等鲁菜,乏善可陈。 After waiting for 2 hours, finally, I got seated in at restaurant and recalled such a delicious taste and memories of many years ago.  Food and beauty deserve to wait patiently; good opportunities and projects in right time won't no longer come once missed! In the New Year, as your days are abundantly blessed, trust us to provide the right opportunities at the right time. Please don't miss the last chance of EB5 immigrating to USA, and our privilege of Antigua passport citizenship program.We are always right here with sufficient responsibility, energy and experience to serve you . 等候了2个小时,终于一尝多年前记忆中的美食。美食美人值得耐心等候,好时机好项目,错过不再来!新的一年,因着您的支持和信任,我们将一如既往地在世界的不同城市,充沛足够的责任、能量和专业经验,在新的一年里更好地为您服务。最后一次涨价前EB5移民美国,以及我们汇加特权的安提瓜护照项目,请抓住机遇不能再错过。
