I know I am quite slow because everyone has gotten theirs but I can’t tell you how much I am obsess with the bottle ever since I got it. I saw the bottle on Urban Outfitters website ,but I am 2$ short on my gift card so I instead got one from the Starbucks instead. It claimed to keep hot drink hot for 12hrs & cold drink cold for 24hrs and it really does! To be honest, when I was purchasing the bottle I only went for the sleek minimal design, but oh my it was worth it when first thing in the morning you can drink cold water out of the bottle (a bad habit too).
Favourite of the month/ beauty: Laneige two-tone shadow stick
I don’t usually wear make-up but this stick is a lifesaver. Not only you use it as an eyeshadow, but also as highlight for your cheek-bone, t-zone, and all that. The orange color goes well with my skintone, enough said.
It all started while we had our family house cleaning on one Sunday afternoon. Dad threw out a nylon sling bag- the one you could find cool in the early 2000’s- along with his favourite phase- “There you go, family inheritance!”. Inside was his two old cameras, Canon EOS 50E and Nikon coolpix 990, which were both out of batteries. After hunting down the batteries, I bought them both with me to Hong kong without thinking twice whether it was working properly or not after that nylon bag storage over the past 10 years. Yes, I didn’t dare to leave my house without DSLR incase the 90’s all suddenly decides to die on me. However, Coolpix 990 died on me on the first day, I forgot to bring extra batteries along, so it enjoyed it stays at the hotel for the rest of the trip. The first roll got developed and turns out that 50E is still working properly! So, here are the pictures..
Starting of my day at Kowloon Walled city park, historical site of Kowloon Walled City that the government turn to a beautiful park. After, take a cab to Wong Tai Sin temple that's well-known for making wishes come true. Then, one station away from Wong Tai Sin temple is the Nan Lian gardenand Chi Lin Nunnery. For the last stop, be sure to stop for lunch before leaving the city if you're following my route, Ping Shan heritage trail (MTR Tin Sui Wan) is around 45mins-1hour away from Diamond hill station.
Regular tourist day, starting from breakfast around Mongkok. We took the MTR to Tung Chung station for Nong Ping cableto Lantau Island. There are shops (and starbucks, caffeine people) on way to the Tian Tan Buddha and Po Lin Monastery. After getting back at Tung Chung station, we stop for lunch at the City Gate Outlet mall before heading to Central. As you know, I like taking photos, and taking photo of buildings. I spend my third day late afternoon until night walking and hopping on/off tram from Central to Causeway bay, taking photos of building and eating Chinese style mochi with black sesame inside I don't even know what it's called.
Last time I was in Hong kong was in 2011, I felt like there wasn’t much changes compare to Japan or Korea where new things popped up every year. Hong kong still has the same scent, the feeling, the vibe, and food. I took a day trip out of the busy crowded area and off to New territories. From the leaflet I got a while back in Bangkok, there is Ping shan heritage trail at Tin sui wan station in New territories. It took me around 45 minutes. It was the first time after over 4 trips to Hong kong, that I actually saw a house. I bet can’t recall anything other than buildings in Hong kong. This time, 2016, I saw a house in Hong kong. It was raining on the last day, but it was fine because we already went to most of the places we planned.
