Travels through Hong Kong

This is one of the outfits I wore in Hong Kong. This is simple street-wear, mixed with tones of burgundy red and denim. A massive heads up: When you go travelling make sure you wear comfortable shoes. I cannot stress this enough. There is absolutely no point in packing cute wedges, or strappy sandals if they're going to give you blisters!

If you can't imagine walking 5 hours in those shoes, DO NOT PACK THEM. 

I think I drank this Haagen Dazs in the quickest time possible with my three straws. Someone say pig? Honestly Hong Kong, China and Taiwan is like an amazing food festival. Your stomach is always enticed by all the weirdest and most(ly) delicious foods. 

Me eating some Chinese Egg preserved in herbal tea and spices. (I thought it would be ridiculously bitter, but it was very sweet)

A boat out on the horizon. Although it never really rained when I was overseas, there was unfortunately limited beautiful blue skies, like the ones you get in Australia

Flowers Food and Fun in Hong Kong

I recently visited the beautiful Hong Kong, Taiwan and went to regions around China and it was absolutely amazing. Simply because I am utterly lazy, I will let all these gorgeous photos do the talking! 

The food was mouthwatering, the prices dirt cheap and the people were loud, bubbly and full of life.

Food! More food! All the food in the world! 
Look at all these things... I can't eat!

During the celebration of Chinese New Year, flowers are seen as a symbol of prosperity for the coming year so they are extremely popular. They are sold on almost every second street and every business is decked from head to toe in the most beautiful flowers ever. It was quite hot when I went back (generally 20 degrees) so most people bought 2 boutiques of flowers because their first bunch blossomed too early.

Just giving fashion a miss this blog post!
