Woman Empowering Women

Garagers are an eclectic and fun-loving bunch, which means weekend recommendations - whether it's restaurants, exhibitions, hiking spots, or live music - is never in short supply. But when the Sassy Hong Kong Team joined QRC Garage, we knew that we were going to be truly plugged into the finest that the city had to offer. The editor of this fempire, Lauren isn't just the savvy go-to person for all things Hong Kong. Her insatiable wanderlust means that she's constantly on the lookout for the next adventure. When she's not traversing the latest and greatest eateries in the city, Hong Kong-born & bred Lauren is keenly pursuing her other passions: "women empowering women, creative communities, the growing art scene in HK." We know you're waiting for it; read on to find out where she's dining and what she's reading (when it's not Sassy, of course).
