Deep Freeze


Jasmine and I decided to check out the skating rink by City Hall the other week...it was beautiful and crisp outside but absolutely FREEZING. This week's temperature is no exception. I'm going to try and enjoy this last month of freezing cold weather before I make my big move to Hong Kong! Definitely no snow there...

Asia Photo Diary









This fall I had an experience of a lifetime on an unforgettable trip to Asia. I have been to Japan before but being half Chinese it was great to finally see China, Hong Kong and Thailand. One of the main reasons for my trip was my cousin's wedding in Chongqing (crazy city - 33 million people in ONE city O_O). I just have to say that it was the most extraordinary wedding I have ever been to and the only way I can think of describing it is by calling it "Kardashian-Style" (note: photo 2 is the lovely bride dressed in Vera Wang with her father). If you ever get the opportunity to go to Asia - GO! Amazing shopping, interesting but good food, and sights that you won't see anywhere else but in Asia.
