Hong Kong Yarn Guide – On The Knitting Blog!

Life is pretty chill back in the states. I’m reminded of Hong Kong almost every day and my study abroad roommate messaged me about her dim sum craving today. The struggle is real. I wrote a comprehensive guide on the yarn stores I visited in Hong Kong on my knitting/personal blog. Check it out here. […]

Hello, I’m in Delaware (Again)

It’s hard to believe that it’s been almost a month since I left Hong Kong. And I still have posts that I want to write but I’m afraid I won’t have time to get around to them. For now, please enjoy my 3rd yarn store post over on my personal/knitting blog. http://girlmeetsyarn.wordpress.com/2013/08/27/hong-kong-yarn-hunt-the-long-overdue-part-trois/ It’s the first day […]

Loose Ends and Realizations

Yesterday was my last day at GE Healthcare. What a bittersweet moment! As much as I am going to enjoy a couple weeks break from work before band camp starts, I am really going to miss my job and team at GE. It was a bit weird to leave in the middle of the testing […]

Budda, Buddha, Buddha, Buddha Statues EVERYWHERE!

Over 13,000 Buddhas to be exact. Sorry, not sorry! I could not resist when the idea popped into my head this afternoon. I waited an entire day to come back to my computer and title this blog post! And thus continues my temple hopping adventures. My second stop was the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery. This attraction […]

Temple Hopping: Man Mo Temple

I may have been born and raised Catholic but Buddhism has always been a captivating philosophy to me ever since I was exposed to it in 6th grade world history. Today was Sunday, but rather than attend Catholic mass (which I’ve only done once while in Hong Kong) I visited two Buddhist temples. Yeah, I […]

Piece of Peace World Heritage LEGO Exhibit

This weekend is was my last in Hong Kong and even with everything on my To-Do list done, I couldn’t spend the weekend inside the hotel, even if it threatened to rain (and it did). Discoverhongkong.com has been a great resource for me when I had moments like this. I just browse the website a little and […]

Hong Kong Museum Hopping

I really wish that as a child my parents took me to more museums. I wish that people in general would go to museums more! Museums are a great way to learn about the world and there are museums that can cater to nearly any interest. I’m not sure when my love of museums came […]

An (Asian) American in Asia

I can’t believe it’s been almost a week since my last post. I’ve been slacking lately, but work has been draining and I honestly haven’t really been going out and doing much because I’ve been in need of some recovering from non-stop exploring for 6 weeks straight. I have 2 weeks left in Hong Kong […]

Journal Assignment #4, Communication and Change

This is another assignment for the required class that I am taking with my internship. I know I haven’t posted journal assignments #2 and #3 but I thought the voice was too academic for my blog. I was planning on writing about this topic on my blog anyways so I decided to choose it for […]
