    Chic Boy. 





    Guys can do fashion blogs too!! Mayao hangs with Hong Kong’s A-listers and is bringing his unique flair of fashion to HK. His Louboutin Freddy’s are so hot (along with his Givenchy wedges too!) !!
    And that is a Cambridge Satchel I see… meanwhile its coming on to the 8th week since ordering the Satchel. They must be inundated with orders I presume. Exams are creeping up, so this the heightened procrastination period. I spent half of my Sunday watching Wong Fu Productions and catching up on Fringe. Ought to get a slap on the wrist…

    Hot Mom. 



    After I have children, I still wanna look this good.
    She is so amazing.
    Desperately wanting to go to Hong Kong for all the fashion and visit LigerStore.

    On the topic of Hong Kong, I saw that fellow blogger Denise had discovered HONG KONG STREET STYLE blog. Even though having been in Australia for so long, Hong Kong is still a large part of me. And because I am in Australia, it is blogs like these that make me uber excited that I can finally see the daily fashion happenings of Hong Kong.

    I have an impulse to start a streetstyle blog for Brisbane. Ha!

    Colourful Fire 

    If you do a search on ‘Victoria Harbour Hong Kong’ on flickr, there will be a zillion photos. But there’s something satisfying about taking your own shot – despite looking almost exactly like what someone else has taken. Here are my version of the Chinese New Year fireworks display at Tsim Sha Tsui. Its quite hard getting a good picture of fireworks cos of the smoke and having to adjust the shutter speeds and exposure depending on the type of fireworks. I wish I had a wide angle lens and got a better position on the night.

    P.S. Photos might seem a little incomplete because I haven’t been able to photoshop anything.

    I was going so well with the updating before. After returning home from my month long holiday, I felt like doing nothing back in Brisbane. Well, there’s hardly anything to do around here anyway – not to mention my bank account has totally depleted now. One of the best things about going overseas is the food!!

    Welcoming The Tiger with Love. 

    Happy Chinese New Year!

    The atmosphere in Hong Kong at this time of year is awesome. Everyone out to prepare the best family dinners, buying flowers for house decorations, preparing the ‘Lai See’ (red pockets), buying lollies and pumpkin seeds for the lolly box…ahhh so warm. We went to the Lunar New Year Fair at Victoria Park Causeway Bay. It was packed to max…. like as in everyone behind you shoving you forward, like on the MTR at peak hour in the morning… just see what I mean:

    Took the fun out of it because you couldn’t really see anything if you were in the middle and awkward to stop and stare at something because it feels like you’re holding up all the traffic behind you – hundreds and hundreds of eager people. But still, I got to eat my favourite TONG CHUNG BENG (糖蔥餅) !!! Its like one of the most traditional cantonese snacks and hardly ever come across it anymore. Its crispy cane sugar with sprinkles of coconut wrapped in a soft pancake. Usually, there’s an old man pushing an old cart around selling these in limited quantities. You’re lucky to find it around these days.



    With L on the tram.

    Last but not least:
    HAPPY VALENTINE’S DAY!

    Buffet Culture. 

    Life is sweeeeeeeeeeeeeet right now! The typical day is: sleep til 10 or 11am; ready made yummy lunch by maid (she’s so lovely and professional); head out to Causeway Bay or Tsim Sha Tsui for walk around and shop; dinner out; home at midnight. Going to do more site-seeing around the place… sounds funny to go site-seeing even though I’m from here but just love the culture and streets of Hong Kong.

    One thing I noticed is the amount of buffet places there are. Is it that “all you can eat” gimmick that lures people in (esp asians cos they think they’re getting an awesome deal with unlimited amount of food)… I’ve had buffet dinners 4-5 times in this whole trip. The mentality is to eat more than the value you are paying. But at the end of your meal, I do tend to feel overloaded and so unhealthy =,= I think I’ll be living on salad and oatmeal when I go back home in Bris.

    It was Maggie’s 21st party few nights ago (buffet hotpot). Happy Birthday Maggieeee!! I got to try on my new colour contacts. Actually, its my first time wearing colour cons!! Gosh I looked so different!!! I took one with the flash on and I looked like I’m from a horror movie. Freaky.



    I rarely post my outfit pics. Here’s an attempt:

    Long 3/4 sleeve blazer, trilby, Witchery striped shirt dress, wetlook tights, bbag & Puzzle Pom Pom flats.

    IFC Mall – these things are cute!

    Just got home from dinner at Japanese Buffet…so full and sleepy right now. Pics from din din:

    ughhhh feel sick 😦 Remember buffets are a sunk costs! XD

      Eating in HK was the most fulfilling and fattening experience ever, LOL. The good thing about being in HK is that there’s a lot of manual transportation (a.k.a walking) which helps keep things intact. When I went to HK last year, all we did was pretty much EAT… anytime, anywhere, LOL.

      I think globally, we all want to “eat more than what we pay for” because we feel like we’re getting ripped off if we don’t, lol. It is a pretty unhealthy culture in the sense that you’re stuffing yourself to make yourself feel sick and paying to feel sick 😛 I didn’t return to a “healthy eating habit” until I returned to Canada a month after. Luckily, even with eating 6-7 meals a day, I didn’t gain any weight due to the heat and constant walking.

      TST is amazing because you can never get bored of it, lol. I live in TST and even going to the same malls/shops everyday doesn’t bore me because there’s always something new and to be honest… I can’t ever recall 100% visiting any store, usually I “quickly peruse” their sales, haha.

      I hope you get your money’s worth out of the buffet… although try not to throw up afterward 😉

      • Joey 2:51 AM on February 13, 2010 Permalink | Reply

        I don’t think I could get sick of Hong Kong – there’s always something different, always something new and exciting!

        Everytime I come back for a few weeks, it seems like I still have something else I wanna do.

        The fun never ends in the city of Hong Kong. Love it.

      Enjoy the rest of your stay in HK and make the most of it okay? Make sure you go to Tai O, Lamma, Lantau Is. and all the places that we had planned to go – take lots of photos too!
      Can’t wait to plan our next trip back! Another one next year, maybe? 😉 hehe

      Missing you heaps!

    Shop Til You Drop. 

    I’m feeling rather spoilt. Not to mention my addiction to shopping is getting out of hand. Probably need to start attending shopaholics anonymous….

    Jeremy Scott x Adidas Originals: Wings!
    I can’t think of any other way to express my feelings…I F* LOVE THESE!

    Bright Yellow kicks by Puzzle
    These remind me of the leather converse hi-tops I saw awhile back. So comfy and affordable.

    Handmade Swarovski Crystal iPhone 3GS Case by Purpleland
    This is the most bling I’ve ever had. Made to order and you can discuss the design you want with artist Maisy. You can pretty much get anything blinged up at Purpleland. Check their other products: http://hk.myblog.yahoo.com/purpleland-sampleDefinitely the most expensive iPhone case in my collection, but very worth it cos its one of a kind! Prices vary with different designs and depends on the number of Swarovski crystals.

    Lenovo S10-3 Netbook
    A 10.1″ is a much better size to take to Uni everyday than the 15″ MBP. It will really encourage me not to multitask…its simply for internet & word processing. But I still prefer Macs!! This one looks sexy nonetheless XD

    Here’s a few more pics out of the 1200+ I’ve taken so far.
    Went to Kadoorie Farm & Botanical Gardens at Tai Po today. Walked for over an hour to get up the mountain!!! There is a shuttle bus service but apparently it was full… then we saw a half empty bus going up and down WHAT ZEE HELL!? Good exercise s’pose. When we got up there, the scenery was amazing! I prefer shooting portraits and people, but I got to try out Papa Wong’s 300mm prime for shooting flowers. WHOAA! What a difference a $2000 lens makes!



    With the girls~

    Loving the CNY decorations!

    In Thailand with all our food. I miss thai food!!

    Should be banned. 

    Got back from Bangkok yesterday and I’m totally wrecked!! The weather was just like an AU summer, only more sticky and humid. Ewwww. But didn’t mind all the walking to work off all the food I’ve been eating! Pad Thai, Tom Yum, Hai Nan Chicken Rice, Curries, French Degustation, Papaya Salad, Shabushi… whooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Did a whole heap of stuff and didn’t cost too much.. around $2500HKD spending money for 4 days. I took roughly 700-800 shots in Bangkok alone. I’ll probably do a massive photo dump on flickr or some highlights on here later on.

    I really should be put on a shopping ban… starting from when I get back to AU. I should really stop myself from trying on all the stuff and have 10 second timeouts to calm myself down. Some of the shopping I’ve done so far. So happy!! More to add 🙂

    After one week of shopping. More to come.

    Guilty Pleasures – Day 3 in HK 

    Dreams come true in Hong Kong.

    “Cheung Fun” (Rolled rice noodles) at Sham Shui Po street food stall

    Walked to so many shops to find it and was getting frustrated cos it was so hard to find this colour… but ended up getting it from good old trusty Broadway. Here it is, the PANASONIC GF1!

    Have you tried a sushi roll that’s 8 inches long?? – I have.
    Kam Tin Long Sushi, Austin Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. AMAZING!

    Had to blog this even though I’m only going to get 3 or 4 hours sleep – got a flight to catch bright and early! Bangkok here we come!! SAWADEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
