Hong Kong, Our Second Home

Sometimes, I can’t decide which feels more like home to me– Hong Kong or San Francisco. The overcrowded city and polluted air of Hong Kong often gets to me, but I can’t deny that there are many attributes of this colorful city that feels like home. I spent the first 6 years of my life here as a child, and although I don’t have much specific memories from those early days, there are sounds, scents, and sights that evoke deep emotions in me when I am here. Thus, I have decided to call this beautiful place my second home.

It has been such an amazing trip so far, and we are having way more fun than we care to admit without feeling just a teeny bit guilty. 🙂 I’m still sneaking in “work time” here and there, but the holiday spirits are luring me into daily doses of entertainment all over Hong Kong. I wouldn’t even know where to start if I were to blog about everything that we’ve been doing here, so I’ll just let the photos and captions tell our story…
