Mong Kok Street Markets

February 18, 2017

Our second location in Kowloon was the area of Mong Kok. There are so many things to see here, which is ironic because the last time i visited Hong Kong with my family, we were actually staying around the area and we never stumbled across this. Kudos to the 6-years-younger me, who never did any research or took any pictures whatsoever. We walked through Tung Choi St first, otherwise also known as the Goldfish Market, and the sight of all the…

Chi Lin Nunnery & Nan Lian Garden

January 24, 2017

We were staying on the main island during our trip to Hong Kong, so decided to take a full day to explore Kowloon. Our first location was the Chi Lin Nunnery & Nan Lian Garden, located just across the road from each other.

And because it’s been more than 2 years since we last saw each other. We were supposed to head to Tasmania, but that fell through. And after my Europe trip got cancelled, i pitched her a very last minute idea. A week later, tickets were booked and our plans were in motion. So guess what – we’ll be heading to Hong…

Auckland Diary

July 24, 2016

The boyf and i had all these plans for New Zealand but unfortunately had to forgo them all due to a couple of restraints. I figured we could still do at least one location (we were previously going to cover both the North and South Island) so i decided to surprise him with air tickets as his belated birthday present. I chose Auckland because he has relatives there and its been a couple years since he last saw them, so…
