I’m in HongKong for the weekend! Leaving China next year for University, I wanted to make some long-lasting memories in my favorite city of all time– not to mention I get to spend 4 whole days with my best friend.
My first night in HK was spent helping Michael finish his semester at Hong Kong University. His final architecture portfolio was due Thursday at noon- unfortunately it took an all-nighter to complete the project >.< we tried in vain to beat the rising sun and get into bed before dawn.
It was so worth it though. Michael’s portfolio is excellent, I’m so proud of him!
Mickey cleaning out his studio spot, finally finished!
I made him a “home-cooked” brunch of bread, cheese, avocado and black coffee after we handed in his portfolio.
To rest up a bit, we napped and watched BBC’s Life nature documentaries. Later last night we walked around HK, ate Malaysian curry and Kaya-butter-toast for dinner, and visited a world-traveling, gigantic Ducky.
With Michael’s recent departure and the start of routine living again, I’m missing HongKong more than ever.
It was in this city where my life took a turn when I decided to take a step of faith and “not” jump right into college as previously expected. It was in this city that I re-united with my brother and old friends who encouraged me to open my mind to new ideas and to seek the Lord’s instruction. I will never forget the quiet, thoughtful days I spent in HongKong -although ironically it is known for its fast-paced society- in which my plans for the future were leveled and rebuilt. Furthermore, on top of all these things I have to mention my excitement over the new friends I was introduced to who made my time in HK so incredible!
Here are some compiled images of photos that remind me of my recent visit to HK
-cannot wait to visit again!
As you can see, I played around with photoshop quite a bit while working on this post… the look is a bit “scattered” I think.
What cities are you day-dreaming about?
