there is a lot that you can do in hong kong.
there are times i choose not to do much but to hang out with friends – we don’t hang out enough in hong kong. people here are always scurrying around and always keeping to a busy schedule.
i had a good relaxing weekend and i hope you did too.
i love summer weekends like this. blue skies, puffy white clouds resembling dancing marshmallows in the sky.
yesterday karen and i sat outdoor for lunch at isola at ifc. this has to be one of the longest lunches i have had in a long time. it’s just that we haven’t seen each other in so long and we had so much catching up to do. i enjoyed every bit of it. it was such a beautiful summer day overlooking the victoria harbor.
i honestly love living in hong kong. there is something about living close to the sea that comforts me. every time i come to isola for lunch, i honestly don’t remember the food much. i just remember the view but this time however, we ordered the beef carpaccio. it was superb.
i haven’t been to the beach much since summer started. sophie my 6 year old labrador loves the water and a good game of tennis ball. as well, i am in dire need of a nice tan. i don’t look good pale, my skin’s natural tone is kinda sallow and slightly greenish. when i am too fair, i look sick and plus this year because of my bad neck – i didn’t do the dragon boat. i want to get back to it next year hopefully.
whenever sophie catches the sight of a tennis ball, she goes MAD.. do you think that this hereditary trait for labrador retrievers? maybe it says it in the name, retriever. ever since i was young with all my experiences with this particular breed of dog, they are crazy about balls..
goodnight everyone. have a good week ahead. sophie is snoring at my feet.
i can’t believe i am going to miss handmade hong kong and it’s happening in my neighborhood -discovery bay. i just checked out the people who will be exhibiting their wares on that day..
ruby martini – who makes the cutest headpieces.i had wanted to get something from her a while ago for an event. she makes amazing stuff.
have a look at at the participating vendors – i just checked it out and it looks as though it is going to be a fantastic event.
miss bella looks like she has some interesting accessories
i love handmade stuff. till i was about 19 – i used to hand make gifts for my friends. i was never really good but i loved the idea of creating something special for someone special. last christmas, my friend priscilla’s daughter-aly made me this photo frame. i was really touched with the gesture.
when was the last time anyone gave you a hand made gift? or even write you a handwritten letter or a greeting card? i still have all the letters my friends gave me during primary and secondary school.
talking about the good old days of being young – i just remembered something my english teacher said to me – ” i wished i had a longer neck to see what naughty things you are doing at the back “.
the thing is, i am always doing naughty deeds.
i don’t wake up early enough to watch the sunrise and the sun rises very early in hong kong. over the years, i think i have seen a lot of spectacular sunsets in hong kong. i am putting together some of my favorites as a reminder that in life, we need free thrills to keep ourselves happy.. hope everyone had a good weekend!!
