Yo Mama

Yo Mama’s so hot…Tabasco cools her down. Yo Mama’s so fab…even Kimora Lee couldn’t make it in her lane. Yo Mama’s so fly…she has her own wing at the airport. Angelina began the trend, Nicole Richie even started eating again to join the club, Jessica Alba happily exchanged her bikini for a Bugaboo and J. Lo, known to go above and beyond, popped out not one but two!  Right now, being a mom is all the rage and the big day to celebrate, May 11th, is just around the corner. So whether you’re the one who’s a hot mama or you have a fabulous mom at home to spoil, get yo-self ready for a dazzling Mother’s Day!

Just for Her
It’s all about mom this holiday. Treat her to a ‘Mother’s Day Indulgence Spa Package’ at The Spa at Four Seasons where she can enjoy a deliciously decadent two-hour organic ritual including a body polish with jojoba pearls, a mango butter, honey and sweet orange oil body mask, a nourishing hair and scalp treatment, an organic buttermilk bath and an application of orange blossom water to moisturize the skin. A glass of champagne, a box of handmade macarons, a hand-tied bouquet and a chauffeur-driven ride back home will ensure a Mother’s Day fit for a queen (HK$3,000, 3196 8900). Or take her for a sumptuous 4-course lunch at Amber with unlimited Veuve Clicquot champagne, and a spectacular dessert buffet featuring rare chocolates presented by their chocolate sommelier and a trio of chocolate fountains (Adults HK$788/Children HK$388, 2132 0066) followed by The Oriental Spa ‘Mothers Spa Treat’, a 90-minute treatment including a back and shoulder massage and regenerative facial (HK$998, 2132 0011). If mom feels like hitting the red carpet after all this pampering, set her up with Cosmetic Concierge at Lane Crawford, a team of well-trained experts sure to keep her up to date on the latest skincare solutions and beauty must-haves (2118 7778).

Girls Day Out
If mom’s always been “one of the girls,” Mother’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate. Delight the eyes and the palate with ‘Afternoon Tea and Jewels’ at MO Bar. Feast on delicious sandwiches and pastries together with the finest selection of teas from Ming Cha whilst renowned designer Roger Dubuis showcases this season’s must-haves in a dazzling jewellery fashion show (HK$190, 2132 0077). Indulge in an afternoon of pampering with Plateau at the Grand Hyatt’s ‘Mother and Daughter Treat’. Begin with a Spa Lunch for two, followed by a Fleur de Fleur scrub, signature massage, anti-stress facial and detoxifying herbal bath, and go home with luxurious chocolates and a Plateau voucher for HK$200 (HK$3,688, 2584 7650).  Or pack your swimsuits and head over to Kowloon for a day of outdoor excess at I-Spa at the InterContinental with their ‘Mother and Daughter Urban Escape’. At this hidden oasis, you and mom can enjoy a decadent series of treatments including an Almond and Soya Body Exfoliation and a soothing Aromatherapy Body Massage while relishing in full access to the infinity spa pools overlooking the harbour and a sumptuous 3-course ihealth lunch on the pool deck.

It’s a Family Affair
Mom can have her cake and eat it too this Mother’s Day at Aspasia at The Luxe Manor. Michelin starred Chef Roland Schuller will hold a cake-making workshop for the whole family on Saturday May 10th from 2-5pm.

Continue the celebrations late into the night at We Will Rock You, the musical by Queen and Ben Elton at the Lyric Theatre, from May 16, (http://www.hkticketing.com, 31 288 288).
