If I could range how much I love HK on a scale of 1-10, it would be 8️⃣. -1 point for humidity and -1 point that I can’t find my favourite dairy products here. With all other negative things I can cope for sure 😄
P.S. that feeling when you can’t decide 1 or 2, and behind the scenes there are 150 pics more, someone can say they’re quite similar, but nooo 😁⠀

📍Monster Building (Montane Mansion), Quarry Bay, Hong Kong 🇭🇰
If you're planning your trip to HK and look up online for 'Instagram spots' in town, you must have seen these dense and stacked flats a thousand times. Making its fame through featuring in one of the Transformers movies, this building/complex is a true reflection of how crowded & tiny our flats are in Hong Kong...
Recreating @anya.birdofparadise's (almost)split for @risinglotusclothing 🧘 @isabellaloyy@andrealeungtk shall we shoot more this weekend 📸 (ok I'll help edit 🤷🏻♀️)
👣Wearing @toesox for that extra grip!
📍Hong Kong , China 🇨🇳
💡Interesting facts :
🔸Hong Kong, officially the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China, is an autonomous territory on the Pearl River Delta of East Asia. Hong Kong has its own political and economical system which is separate from that of China.
🔸The third Disney theme park outside the United States was opened in Hong Kong in the year 2005.

A little chance encounter could be the one you’ve waited for 👫
Dinner @oldbaileyhk last night with this view. Great food & wine (with a good selection of vegan/vegetarian options!!) 🥟🥠🍚 - - #hongkong is #home , and every now and then I’m still surprised. I believe capturing the “perfect” photo takes part skill, part technical knowledge and then being at the right place and at the right time. Zoom in to the picture to see how I captured love between strangers on the crossing. 🖤🖤🖤 PS - check out my food highlights to see what I ate @oldbaileyhk 😘

Mempercantik dirilah dengan cara terhormat
Memilih karena dicintai
Menunggu tanpa mencari
Kerena sang ratu tidak pantas mengemis
Untuk disakiti atau direndahkan
I asked, you answered and here you go. I was going to shift to a very different style again today, but that will have to wait until Friday.
This is one of the many fruit stalls you can see throughout Mong Koks Markets, serving a large variety of exotic fruits both local and less so.
In a city so modern it's really nice to see tradition still thriving, the many markets selling cheap fruit, meat and other food stuffs are often cheaper than what you would find in the supermarkets.
Have a wander through some of the less touristy areas of the city for a more authentic taste of Hong Kong
Possibly the best breakfast I had in Hong Kong this trip. Love the beef macaroni and toasted egg beef sandwich. 🐣🐄🥪 We love it so much that we tried to replicate it when we came back. Swipe right to see our #tanchenkitchen 👨🏻🍳creation!
On 19 June 2016, Hong Kong photographer and director Fan Ho passed away. Renowned for inimitable, moody photographs of his home city, Ho continued his creative work even after his official retirement, going through his archives and finding new ways to process and present his shots from so long ago. In fact, even while laid up in hospital, he was working on a book that would be the cumulation of a years-long dream.
“He was very attentive to the progress of the book until his very last moments,” says Claudia Siman Ho, Ho’s daughter, during a phone call to her home in California. “We brought things to the hospital for him; he reviewed mockups and discussed photo selections with us.” When Ho succumbed to pneumonia before the book could be completed, his family continued the project in his stead.
The book in question is 'Portrait of Hong Kong', which was published in 2017. It features around 150 of Ho’s street photographs, narrowed down by Claudia, her family, and the rest of the publishing team from 500 selections Ho had made from his archives. Alongside the photography are quotes from the book 'Thoughts on Street Photography', penned by Ho when he was 28. From 22 March to 28 April 2019, Blue Lotus Gallery, which also helped drive the project, will showcase 40 of the photos in an exhibition of the same name.
“[Working on the book] was a healing process for all of us,” shares Claudia. “At that time, we missed him so much and working on the book made us feel connected to him. We shared anecdotes and felt his presence.”

This is our first time visiting Macau via the longest sea crossing and fixed link on earth - Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge (HZMB 港珠澳大橋) and we had a disappointing experience 😫 Here is a summary of our 3 hours journey to Macau: .
10:15 am - We took the Airport bus to HZMB - Hong Kong port. Not all airport buses stop at the HK port (Only Bus A18, A22, A21, A22, A29, A31, A33X and A36). .
11:00 am - After you arrive at the HZMB - HK port, you will need to get the ticket for the HZM gold bus 金巴 to Macau. Just go to the self-service counter and pay by the octopus card (HKD$65). Staff are very helpful, so that is not exactly a “self-service” counter. If you pay by cash, you must need to visit the ticketing counter. We then go through the custom. It is right next to the ticketing counter. Very easy and smooth process (It took me less than 2 mins 😂!)
11:15 am - We then walked to the bus station to take the HZM bus. There was a long queue, but we just waited for 10 mins to get onto the bus. I was angry that people keep jumping the queue, even after we told them not too 😡 .
12:00 noon - Our bus journey was way too exciting - our bus driver was drowsy 💤 . .
12:15 pm - After 45 mins of bus ride, we finally arrived at the HZMB - Macau Port. It took us 45 mins to get through the custom. You will need to walk up and down and up and down again in the Arrival Hall, which was quite tiring, especially for children and elderly.
1:00 pm - We then walked to the bus stop (around 3 mins), and took bus 101X to the Macau City centre (Avenue de Almeida Ribeiro 新馬路). Have HKD$6/MOP$6 ready! There are very limited seats on each bus (around 20) and the staff told us that the next bus will come in 20 minutes. (the next bus came right after our bus left 😂 - the buses actually came one after another). We stood on the bus for 20 mins with our back touching the back of each another. 😂 And Yeah! We finally arrived at the Macau city centre at 1:20 pm 🇲🇴 . #hktravel #🇭🇰 #香港#travel#explorehongkong_sightseeing#explorehongkong#hongkong#hkstyle#explorehongkong_macau#explorehongkong_transport#香港旅行#macao#港珠澳大橋#澳門#macau#macautravel
