before I left for Hong Kong,
I made Christmas cookies with a friend and poka dotted my nails
it's called marsh mellow ice, or something like that, really delicious, wish they had it in Toronto.
You can choose the flavours and toppings,
I went a little overboard... !
So when I arrived in HK, being so foreign to this island, I had a conversation with a friend who lives there that went a something like this:
Me: Hey!! I arrived, let's go out to drink!
friend: ya, sounds great! Where are you?
Me: ... I'm not sure... there's a big boat beside me.
projector clock, what an amazing yet useful home decor
it was at my Aunt's place I was staying at
this was at Times Square for just a day I believe.
Is there a Times square in every country!? There is one were I live as well and OFC in New York, and who knows where else.
Christmas Lights on Christmas Eve; my dad and I ended up getting lost and walked for hour on end in Tsim Sha Tsui.
but that's a lot for the normal GTA-ian.
I stole this picture from Gingerasia.com,
I really miss Hong Kong now that I'm looking at the live night life they have.
Miss the seven elevens at every block, the subways, the cheap markets and having to walk a few miles a day.
So my friend took me out for drinks not far from the street above along with his friends, and sitting in on their conversations was the most eye opening cultural experience I had in Hong Kong for sure. Their way of life is so different and -frankly- very dramatic, socially and politically, it's like listening to a soap opera!
Plus they are so open about everything and are so strong in communicating exactly what they think and feel. Maybe it's because the majority of them are so mature at such a young age .
anywho, can't wait to go back:)
