Our mission is to inspire humans to live better lives.
We want to spark that desire in you to do or feel something special, creative and interesting. We want to be that reason you walk the long way home, look up, look down, try that new dish, hike, walk or catch the sunrise.
We are for all humans no matter the colour, size, age or race. We celebrate diversity. We don’t endorse discrimination in any form. We’re a team from all walks in life, and that’s the way we like it.
It means measuring what matters most to you and finding the gaps.
We all only have one, so let's make it count.
Nothing works unless there is teamwork. We work together, collaboratively as a team, to achieve our goals.
We want to do things that make our kids proud. We are honest and have strong moral principles.
We celebrate local designers, creators, producers and businesses. We want to use our powers to lift them up.
We make a real difference. We take special pride in what we do and only write about things we believe in.
We are playful, we have good humour and we enjoy having a sense of fun at work. We’ll be honest: we love our jobs.
Hello, fellow people of the 852! Want to know all about Honeycombers Hong Kong and what makes us tick more than Typhoon Day? You’ve come to the right place!
Honeycombers is a digital lifestyle platform and a video content and events production house. Our HQ is in sunny Singapore where the business was founded by Chris Edwards in 2008. Yes, we’ve been around for over a decade (looking better than ever) and have expanded to Hong Kong and Bali. Got kids? Our sister website, HoneyKids has your back.
We’ll be honest: we love our jobs. We only write about things we believe in, and we’re constantly working to bring you the raddest happenings around town (even if it means frequent hangovers). We don’t endorse discrimination in any form; we’re a team of different colours and sizes, and that’s the way we like it.
Yes, we do have advertising on the site, but the difference between editorial and advertorial content will always be made clear. And like we said, we don’t write about things we wouldn’t endorse ourselves, and that includes our work for clients.
We’re real people just like you – we’re locals and expats, working mums, fresh grads, but the one thing we have in common is we love Hong Kong, and we love sharing it with you.
Who We Are
Chris Edwards, Founder / 創辦人
Our fun and ballsy leader is the queen bee. She traded Sydney for Singapore eight years ago and started The Honeycombers because there was no publication she felt ‘spoke to her’. Honeycombers was born out of her desire to connect expats with the abundant fab local culture. She now has Singapore firmly ‘in the palm of her hands’ according to the Australian Financial Review, (yes that’s true!) And if it wasn’t for Chris, none of us would be doing this kick-ass job!
Elizabeth Jerabek, Editor / 編輯
Originally from Santa Fe, New Mexico, in the US, Elizabeth moved to Hong Kong in 2013. She enjoys travelling in South East Asia, as well as exploring Hong Kong – particularly the hiking trails near her home on Lantau Island. A lifelong bookworm, she also loves cooking, as well as sports such as swimming, cycling, sailing, and skiing.
Fashila Kanakka, Junior Editor / 初級編輯
Fashila is an Indian Hong Konger who knows the nooks and crannies of the 852 – or so she thinks. During her free time, she likes to experiment with photography, binge true crime shows on Netflix, or go plant shopping to transform her home into a green space. She is currently living towards a more sustainable lifestyle, hit her up if you would like to share some local sustainable brands.
Elaine Wong, Junior Editor / 黃恩臨, 初級編輯
Elaine had spent her past decade hopping between Hong Kong and the UK, the two places she calls home. After graduating from Oxford, Elaine has (for now) settled back in the 852. If she’s not out chilling in the newest bars and cafés, she’s most likely home listening to music, watching crime documentaries, or feeding the neighbourhood cat.
