Ramblings | Moving on

I confess.

I am really behind in blogging. Mid of 2015 has been a whirlwind ever since my last post (read here -- if y'all are still interested in what I bought in Korea and Italy (so last year), comment below and I'll post them hauls!:)


So here's a quick update of what happened during my blogging absence! Well, I say quick but knowing myself, it'll be a long ramble…

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the first part of my top 5 areas to shop in Hong Kong. I thought I'd split this list into 2 posts since it might be too much text to digest at once.

Hong Kong is known for its food, rapid pace of life and of course, SHOPPING! I love shopping in Hong Kong since there are so many kinds of shops available for people with different budgets. From cheap deals to great steals, there is something to be found in HK for everyone.

Having stayed in Hong Kong for almost 3 months, I have discovered some new favourite places to shop beside my usual hangouts. Being an avid shopaholic who loves a good deal, I thought that listing my top 5 shopping areas would be useful for fellow shopaholics visiting Hong Kong. The places I am listing here are all easily accessible by MTR. If you're curious to know more, read on!

Be Prepared for All the Hong Kong Related Posts Coming Up!

Hello everyone!

Just writing to announce that I am back in Singapore (or rather, I've been back for slightly more than 2 weeks now). I was really busy during my internship and did not have time to sit down and write much. I did write some stuff while I was in Hong Kong but due to problems with my OneDrive, I could not download my photos to edit and insert into the posts O.O Now that I've resolved that problem, I'll be publishing a lot of posts about Hong Kong in the next few weeks so do stick around if you're interested to know what I was up to in Hong Kong! So far, I've published a post about my trip to Stanley Beach, which you can read all about it here. The next post is going to be about shopping in Hong Kong, which I hope you will find it informative. It's coming out this Wednesday so check back here soon!

Till next time,
Love,
El   xoxo

Travel | Stanley Dragonboat Rowing Races at Stanley Beach, Hong Kong

Hello everyone! One of the biggest events that took place in June was the Stanley International Dragon Boat Championships. It is held annually as part of the Dragon Boat/ Rice Dumpling Festival. The Dragon Boat Festival is a traditional Chinese festival where part of it involves feasting on rice dumplings with braised meat or seafood fillings. The Dragon Boat Festival in Hong Kong is a pretty big event as there are dragon boat races held and you can find rice dumplings being sold in almost every eatery, restaurant and bakery. In Singapore, there isn't much of a hooha over the festival sadly. Thus, it is a rare opportunity to be able to participate in the festivities in Hong Kong!

And so, on a super sunny morning, aka the kind where you will get a tan regardless of the amount of sunblock you slap on, my friends and I headed out to Causeway Bay to take bus no. 40 all the way to Stanley Beach. It costs HKD 10 per ride. The queue was ridiculously long as many people were also going for the event. It didn't help that each bus can only seat 16 people. Imagine waiting for an hour while getting roasted by the sunlight -- not fun.


However, the trip was worth it. Look at the amazing scenery!
