1. DB Pirates All Girls Beach Festival
Date: Jan 12-Jan 13 (Sat & Sun)
Time: 9.30am-late (Sat), 10.00am-late (Sun)
Venue: Tai Pak Beach
If a fun day out in the sun is what you're looking for, you'd be hard-pressed to find anything that beats the All Girls Beach Festival this weekend, proudly hosted by the DB Pirates.
Having provided coverage for the Festival the past 2 years, we can personally vouch for the quality of rugby put on by the best girls' /women's club sides in Hong Kong, including reigning Women's Premiership champions Gai Wu and many others.
While rugby is unquestionably the main attraction, there will also be netball, various booths, food and also the opportunity to meet members of the Hong Kong Women's national squad!
To get there, just set off from Central Ferry Pier 3, with boats arriving and departing every half hour.
2. Bike Ride to Cheung Chau
Date: Jan 13th (Sun)
Venue: Meet at Central Pier
Admission: FREE (reserve spot HERE)
The guys at Lani are back with another awesome outdoorsy networking/social event, offering attendees the chance to soak up the idyllic views Cheung Chau has to offer and partake in some of the local delicacies very much unique to the island, including fishballs and a giant watermelon popsicle.
A mere 40-50 minute ride from Central Pier, be sure to bring at least $50 to cover the ferry and bike hire.
The bike course itself will be relatively flat, lasting around an hour.
3. Hugged By Nature: Outdoor Yoga Camp with Deva Biswas
Date: Jan 13th (Sat)
Time: 8.00am-10.00am (7.45am meet at Kwun Tong MTR)

Accomplished yogis and complete beginners alike are welcome to "inspire and uncover your creative self in a mindful Yogic way" under the guidance of yoga veteran Deva Biswas, who has been practising since the tender age of 5.

4. Relaxploration: Wanchai Walking Tour + Yoga
Date: Jan 13th (Sun)
Venue: Blue House
72A, Stone Nullah Lane, Wanchai
Admission: Purchase HERE ($430 for one, $800 for two)
Our guide for weekend is shaping up to be a yoga-lover's wet dream.
Here we have yet another yoga event that couples a lovely stroll through Wanchai and an opportunity to show off your newfound knowledge of two little-known historical buildings in Hong Kong- Blue House and 18 Ship Street, led by fourth-generation Wanchai resident Vivienne.
The yoga happens afterwards, with the little trek through the area concluding at the Hive where Loretta (also a fourth-generation Wanchai resident) will lead a session that promises to improve your physicality, spirituality and mental strength.
5. Electro Sound
Date: 12th Jan (Sat)
Venue: The Rink HK
1 Austin Road West, Tsim Sha Tsui
If the sound of free snacks, drinks, a 2-hour ice-skating sesh and music played by a live DJ sounds like how you'd like to spend your Saturday night (fever?), you can just go ahead and cancel any other plans you have right now.
The Rink HK in TST, who provide all manner of courses instructing children and adults, are hosting an event called "Electro Sound" this coming Saturday featuring just that- definitely not one to be missed!
