Kew Gardens

Here are some photos I took no more than two weeks ago. It feels like something from a passing dream – I’ve dug myself into the mud and hit a treasure box of IB and university deadlines. I’m also slightly panicking about the disappearance of my childhood!! Oh well, I’ve got to start paying rent…

L is for LonDON LookBOOK

Here are some outfits for school. …but because my school has a “rigorously monitored” (as they like to say) uniform policy, so instead I wore them to my styling and making course this summer at Central!! Saint!!! Martins!!!! in King’s Cross London. I’ll be posting a review of my experience later, so stay tuned and…

My First Time in a Hong Kong Pawnshop

Yesterday I went into a pawnshop. Not to actually swap anything off for money, but since I’ve seen so many around Hong Kong and never went inside my grandma, mom, and I went inside to take a look. The shop that we went to was on the corner of Yu Chau Street in Sham Shui…

vlog : Åland, Pure, family and Cantonese cuisine

What I did this Saturday (sorry, I realized that the date is wrong). We went to Causeway Bay for Cantonese dim sum and tea (known as 喝茶 “yum cha”) at Lee Theatre, then we shopped at a Korean store called Åland and did fitness at Pure. Then my grandma called, so we went to Tseung…

vlog: Mid-Levels, Bun Xuong Nuong & M&S Food

Last Sunday my mom and I went to the Mid-Levels, located in Central District in Hong Kong to spend my first fully relaxing weekend in weeks. On Saturday, I thought it was the end of the weekend because I’m so used to having 1-day weekends! The Mid-Levels is most well-known for the escalator. There is…

In a slightly related response to the feminist marches in Washington, I put together a photo reminiscent of “Chronicle of a Death Foretold” by Gabriel Garcia Marquez. The novel is part murder mystery but also social commentary on all kinds of concepts that are still relevant today: machismo, gender oppression, the religious Madonna-whore dichotomy and…

sun-day : part 2

Here’s to Christmastime, hand-knitted sweaters and scarves from grandma. (You could probably wear your jumper untucked, but since I’m likely never to grow past 160cm tucking looks a bit better on me.)

Lhasa : Tibet 2016

This week I had the amazing opportunity to visit Tibet with a group of people from my school for our annual Challenge Week. It was an incredible experience full of spirituality, politics, colour and immersion into the local culture, and I have the pictures to prove it.  Lhasa was an incredibly unique place to visit….

here are some photos that I took for the second round of my school’s photography competition. for some reason they keep picking the the 1 out of 3 photos that I submit that I personally feel slightly iffy about, but at least that means I’m still in! To be honest, what I feel the most…
