I'm back! I was in Hong Kong last week for a vacation with my parents. It was fun but exhausting, and of course I had to work whenever I can get hold of wifi. Suffice it to say that I'm done with traveling for a while. It majorly disrupts my routine and therefore my life - it's so difficult to get back on track! I don't know how other people can go in and out of the country and not miss a beat.
Maybe it just takes practice, huh?
Anyway, I just want to share a few photos I took of Hong Kong. The province has a beautiful harbor, but inside it is very much like Manila. It's a great shopping destination! Otherwise there isn't much to see that'll be worth visiting a second time. Maybe it's just not my scene.

Aberdeen Fishing Village
I love the color of the sea
I loved the rides at Disneyland. The place is literally packed to the brim with kids and adults inebriated with sugar and cholesterol. We had to fall in line for an hour for a five to ten minute ride - was it worth it? I suppose so, yes. It has to be. The place felt like Christmas but there were so many people that day it was bordering on nightmarish.
I don't mean to sound so whiny. I am incredibly grateful that I was able to visit the place (thanks to my generous dad - hi Papa!), truly, but it's not somewhere I'd go back to in a hurry!

Busy, busy Mong Kok
My mom and I was able to visit Mong Kok on our first day there. It's a street that's pretty much a carbon copy of Divisoria - there were so many great finds! I regret that I didn't bargain well, and that I was pressured to buy a bag I wasn't really into. Maybe I'll sell it. I actually bought a product I'm gonna put up here on Project Vanity for sale. ;) The stocks are limited so it's more of a blog sale than anything.
I'll talk about it soon!
Of course I had to try the Hainanese Chicken Rice
Apartments stacked on top of and beside one another. Hong Kong is a mountainous region so space is precious.
A faithful dog
And that's it really. :) Hope you enjoyed looking through the photos! I actually have some more photos of Japan that I've been meaning to share, so if you enjoy my travel diaries you should stay tuned for that. ;) Till next!
I eat makeup for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert.
