We arrived last night and we’ll be here for a couple of weeks. We’ve packed lots of fun clothes with multiple pairs of comfortable shoes and we’re ready to rock ’n’ roll.
I grew up in Hong Kong and also travelled here regularly to work with clothing manufacturers when I was a fashion buyer. It’s been decades since I was here during Chinese New Year, so it will be extra fun to see the city prepare for those celebrations with Greg on my arm. We’re also excited to see dear old friends in person. It has been a long 6 years since we saw them last.
In Hong Kong there is something fascinating and colourful around every corner. Varied and delectable cuisine, extraordinary street style, incomparable shopping, energizing hustle and bustle, breathtaking views, and mild weather. Even the public transport is wonderful (can’t wait to take the double decker #6 bus to Stanley Market). This city is always inspiring and very close to our hearts.
The daily posts will continue during our trip, and some of them will be coverage of our time here. We hope to share some dining and shopping experiences, the Chinese New Year festivities, and of course, the fabulous street style. To say that we’re excited to be back in this magnetic, magical city is an understatement.
Here are some pictures Greg took today. There are festive red lanterns everywhere in preparation for Chinese New Year. It’s a mild 15 to 19 degrees Celsius so I wore my old jodhpur jeans and chartreuse trench with new Ted Baker floral pullover and flat white Calvin Klein booties. My white Rosie bag from Boston finished off the outfit, along with watch and specs.
