I wasn’t planning on writing a post today but something HUGE happened that I need to tell the Internet. As I mentioned at the end of my previous post, someone from GE Healthcare India has come to visit Hong Kong this week. Why do I still have a hard time believing that in this internship […]

This post is a week overdue and I haven’t posted in a while but here it is! Last Sunday, some girls in the fashion program and I (for whatever reason I end to hang out with the fashion students rather than the business ones lol) went to Shek O beach for our long weekend for […]

As I mentioned in Part I, I made plans to visit a few yarn shops on my way from the heritage trail. I planned on visiting three, found two, stupidly walked by one believing it didn’t exist, and found another one completely on accident. I also randomly found the “Bead Markets” where there were a […]

Saturday was the most fulfilling day I’ve spent in Hong Kong. There is just something about setting out on an adventure in a new part of a foreign city all on your own and successfully doing everything you planned to do. With a long weekend in store, I was not about to spend any minute […]

I can hardly believe that I’ve been in Hong Kong for 4 weeks now. My trip is more than half over. This has come up in conversation too many times this week. As cliche as it sounds, time flies by when you’re having fun. Even when what you consider fun is sitting in front of a […]

Today I’m over at my knitting blog talking about my yarn findings in Hong Kong. For all you newbies who don’t know me personally, I am obsessed with knitting. It’s an addiction. So obviously hitting up the HK yarn stores is pretty high on the to-do list while I’m here. I found yarn in the Fa Yuen […]

It was so nice to get away from the city on Saturday. Despite threats of a typhoon heading towards China and Southeast Asia, Hong Kong was left undamaged and the sun was actually shining. Me and a couple guys on the trip took a spontaneous hike on the Dragon Back Hiking Trail. The entire trail […]

There is just something eye opening about sitting in on a phone conference taking place between people from all around the world. Last week I was able to observe business and globalization in action. The phone conference took place at 2pm, Hong Kong time. Time differences! They sure make doing business in a multinational corporation difficult. […]

After spending a few hours at Stanley on our day off for the Dragon Boat Festival my roommate and I decided to do a little more exploring and headed over to Tsim Sha Tsui to observe the iconic Hong Kong skyline, take a walk down the Avenue of Stars, and watch the Symphony of Lights light […]

Everybody enjoys a public holiday, right? How could you not when it involves getting off from work? In the U.S. public holidays like Presidents’ Day, Memorial Day, and Labor Day generally consist of an unhealthy number of commercials advertising ‘huge’ sales and savings in honor of said holidays. And maybe a parade and barbecue if […]
