Hoi An in 5 Lewkz

In 2015 I swore to myself that I’d never use the word “lewkz” for its teenage-powered, angsty misspelling, and now here I am, two years older and none the wiser. Anyway, here’s to Vietnamese food, all the fun and cool and helpful and not helpful but intriguing people we met, the scenery, and the time…

Sai Wan

  This year on Christmas Eve, my parents decided it was about time to hike out to our favourite beach at Sai Wan. When the tide is high, the water comes in an inch deep. It easily covers the fine sand, rippling and eddying languorously across your feet if you stand there for a while….

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.)

sun-day

There’s nothing better than a sunny December afternoon at home 🙂 Book: Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen Shirt: Forever 21 Skirt: good morning beautiful people x Uniqlo Ballet flats: Paul’s Ballet

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….

LONELY AS A SHARK

A really gifted and creative friend of mine recently made a music video for her GCSE Media coursework. And guess what, I’m in the starring role! “uh, whuuuuut. u can act? srsly, u gotta b joking ha haaaa ha” I haven’t taken a drama lesson in about 3 years, but her directorial prowess is so…
