The past month and a bit has been an absolute whirlwind! I didn’t realise how long it had actually been since I’d used this thing until I caught a look at the massive backlog of photos sitting on my desktop. Oops!
So…. I guess I’ll just get a few out so I feel like I’m sharing.We spent a couple of weeks in Hong Kong and China a few weeks ago now and much to my surprise I think Hong Kong is my favourite travel destination. I wasn’t expecting it but I just love it. I think I’ll be needing to head back there in the not so distant future. Me, who usually loathes hot weather, even totally loved the climate. Hot, sticky and overcast. Maybe I am getting old? Apparently that’s what happens!
I’m not even sure where to start with pics so I’m just slapping them all down. Not one for order!
The ferry from Hong Kong Island to Kowloon. I am looking slightly uneasy as I didn’t pack my kwells. Yup. I’m one of those sea sickness people. Luckily it was a quick ride!
Unsurprisingly, Trendyland wasn’t all that trendy. Bummer.
Super awesome, tacky girly shoes. Love these places.
Look at that hideous thing in the window. How can you not love these places!
I was always easy to find. I was the only person with pink hair. Bonus!
Total chaos in the streets but everyone seems to get where they need to go without the stress.
Shoes!!! All small too. Definitely wins points with me!

Cobus had a suit made up by famous Hong Kong tailors at Mr Simpson Sin. These guys were AMAZING to watch. They whip up bespoke suits in just hours. Being a textiles student even the idea of drawing and cutting a pattern in hours is mind boggling. Even more impressive is that Cobus only needed one fitting. It was perfect first fit. Wow. Oh, and did I mention that it’s seriously cheap?!
I was really wishing I was a guy and needed a suit. So many beautiful fabrics.
Again more measuring. We actually heard of this place on Anthony Bourdains Layover show. Kinda embarrassing but the best advice I’ve ever gotten from a travel program. It was very touristy of us given there are dozens of these tailors lining the streets. I’m a fan of tried and true though so I’d recommend Simpson Sin to anyone.
