Hong Kong

March 28, 2013 | Photography, Travel

As I mentioned last week, I was lucky enough to take a quick trip up to Hong Kong for a few days a couple of weeks back, and I just thought I’d share a few photos from my time there. I spent most of the time exploring on my own (which isn’t something I’m used to doing when we travel), which turned out to be quite fun and somewhat liberating :)

I found some great areas with funky little cafes, outdoor markets, and eclectic shops, and only managed to get lost a few times (and then proceeded to look even more like a tourist by standing on a corner with my map out, rotating it in my hands a few times to try and get my bearings). It was great, I really love Hong Kong!

The cafe above was a particular favourite.. I kept walking past it just to take in the fairy lights and roses in the window, and at one point went in to rest my legs and try one of their ginger latte’s (yummy!) and saw their fabulous floor.. Noted for future house building project sometime in my life. ;)

Five Under Ten – Outdoorsy

March 25, 2013 | Five Under Ten

I used to love this time of year, back when we were living in Germany. Spring is creeping in, slowly thawing out the ground and giving way to little flowers ready to mark the end of winter. Here in Singapore, we don’t really get change like that with the seasons, and I miss it! Right now we’re just making the transition from hot, wet and humid, to just hot and humid (although apparently it’s not ready to give up the ‘wet’ part yet, as I type this I can hear the thunder rolling in!).

Anyway, none of this really has anything to do with this post except that if you’re in the northern hemisphere you’re probably getting ready to be spending long days outside, enjoying the sunshine and growing warmth. So here are 5 goodies under $10 that will get you ready to spend some time outdoors in your yard or on your balcony.

Please enjoy Spring for me! :)
