So what’s been going on?
Below: I made kumquat (a small citrus fruit) and honey cake. Yummy.
Above: New favorite nail colour.
Below: Studying. But this week I finished my course for passing the bar! So close to being an actual lawyer!
Above: Been reading this book about being a journalist in Hong Kong in 1997 when the country transferred from being a British colony to being part of China. It was a good book, but probably a bit too long.
Below: A blogger friend asked to see the finished product of the Kippah I made for The Boy for our wedding. So here it is, I crocheted it freehand, I just make patterns as I go. I use a .75mm hook if you were wondering.
Above: Brunch at the local coffee shop. And yes, technically I live in China.
Below: Matcha latte. Loving everything Matcha flavoured at the moment.
Above: How awesome is this building!?
Below: Sometimes Asia makes no sense.
Above: coconut and mango dessert bought from the Temple St night markets. Delicious!
To summarise – I seem to be consuming a lot of sweet food and photographing it. Concerning?
Anyways, today The Boy and I are off to China, which means that I’ll be AWOL for a few days. Don’t miss me too much ;p
Thanks for reading!
Don’t be fooled.
Even if I look happy in this photo, I’m actually barely awake.
These photos were taken after The Boy and I had gotten up at the crack of dawn to get to the China Visa offices. The office hadn’t even opened yet and there was already a winding queue around the building. It was crazy! But luckily everything is sorted and hopefully our visas should be ready before our trip to China this Thursday. Eep!
Do you want to hear (read?) something ridiculous? The handbag that I’m wearing is my first handbag that I’ve bought for myself. Crazy right?! Up until now I’ve had a backpack for school and hand-me-down handbags. I loved them and I loved the people who gave them to me. But at 25 years old it’s time to grow up and buy yourself a handbag.
Baby steps towards adulthood.

Happy Weekend Friends!
The Boy and I have been on a planning frenzy lately.
These past few days we’ve booked our trip to Spain and Morocco (for January), to Kaiping in China for next weekend (eep visas!) and tomorrow I’m going to Macau! It’s been BANANAS.
If you’ve been to any of these places I’d love to hear some tips. Also generally useful travel tips, like how to be safe or to save money are always welcome.
I’ve stolen The Boy’s university tote. Just ’cause I can.
I have to say that I’m mighty happy that it’s cooled down enough in HK to wear long sleeves. But I’m still wearing sandals so clearly it’s not actually cold yet. Boo.

In other wonderful news, on Monday I hand in my last assessment for passing the bar. I’m sooooo close to actually being a lawyer (assuming I pass – eep!). Wish me luck and have a great weekend!
