The chefs "came from the same city in Italy, but they have very different styles on how they represent the cuisine," said Andrew De Brito, general manager of the hotel, adding that the menu is a sort of east-meet-west offering, though the soul is still very Italian.

Cui Fenghua, a resident artist, painted a profile of the guests at the scene. Upon the fiery red canvas, she outlined the picture of men and woman in black.

She also brought along her photo-paintings, which were based on photos taken on Italian streets.

"When I was wandering in Italy, its history, art and culture burst into my eyes. Walking on the ancient streets was just like traveling back in time to several centuries ago. I cannot wait to express my feelings through my pen," Cui said.

Added De Brito: "The pace of modern people's daily life is really fast. We tried to catch up with what's happening. We forget this moment because we are thinking about tomorrow."

The idea of this event is to deliver a lifestyle - people are living in the moment and they should enjoy every experience right now and connect with the people beside them.

"As for the guests who came today, I don't want them to say how good the food was. I would rather them saying this is the experience I would remember for a long, long time," De Brito said.
