Check out ‘Queen of Hearts,’ a musical show by Hong Kong singer-songwriter and actress Gloria Tang Tsz-kei. The performer, also known as G.E.M. (Get Everybody Moving), is known for her wide-ranging vocals and charismatic stage presence. Though already famous in Hong Kong, G.E.M. became a household name in mainland China after she won 2nd place in the 2014 season of I Am a Singer. She also won a Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Award (‘Favorite Asian Act’) that same year.

The iconic Hard Rock Cafe is adding some spice to its typically American-style fare with ‘Rock ‘n Bowls.’ The internationally-inspired bowls make use of bold flavors and textures. Try the bibimbap, a five-spice seasoned brown rice bowl topped with crunchy fresh vegetables and Sriracha meatballs, or the jambalaya, a Creole-style dish with shrimp, sausage, chicken and vegetables.
