RUSSIA 2017 (Oct-Nov)

Photo Gallery To sum it up in three words: Buffet, Art, & Churches. Every breakfast: cold buffet table. Every dinner: black rye bread and margarine (always served piped in a dish), soup or salad, main course, and dessert. Buffet for lunch: thrice – once at Esse Jazz Club, where there was a live jazz band….

Stanley

When you exit from the Aberdeen Tunnel and see the lush countryside of  Wong Chuk Hang and Repulse Bay, it feels like you’re stepping into some glossy, hi-functioning documentary of Hong Kong. Every wall lining the roads (even those lining the roads and buzzing pavements) is perpetually whitewashed and the houses are glass-fronted, haven-style, along…

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

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…
