Returning to old haunts

It's March! Apologies for not posting more regularly. I celebrated my Birthday last month, and my friends' birthdays, and embarked on some new ventures. Most definingly, I went back to my favorite spots in Hong Kong for the first time in ages. Having been remiss in my visits to both of my two favorite places,... Continue Reading →

Another Week of Mostly Eating

Last week I forgot to post because I was spending so much time doing other things, namely eating. Brunch, BBQ dinner, Dim Dim Sum for the first time (they have excellent chicken feet, really, absolutely delightful), Indian food, Nha Trong, and the most memorable cooked food center meal I have ever had.

People even brought suitcases to take all the loot home. My friend  JV had acquired VIP tickets... Continue Reading →

Typhoon Season: Utor

Summer in Hong Kong is time for spectating the weather. We watch the systems develop to the south, outside of the Philippines, and hope for two things: that it doesn't damage the area too much, and that it hits us directly and gives us days off. We have watched different storms all summer, watched them... Continue Reading →

Infinity Pool

Summer is a good time of the year to stay in the shade or in the air conditioned comfort of the indoor mecca that is Hong Kong. It is also a good time to get sunburned on a hike and jump into freshwater streams or the ocean, then eat a delicious meal on the beach,... Continue Reading →
