Jet-lag FREE!

NI HAO! I just got back from Asia about 1 week ago! I went there for about 10 days for holiday and it was so fun! I've traveled all over Europe, the States and Mexico but this was my first time in Asia! I spent time getting to know Hong Kong and Tokyo and it was all very interesting. Things are so different there, it's like another world!

Anyway, I loved it! It'll take quite a few blog posts to cover the main parts... I took a LOT of photos (785 after reviewing and deleting to be exact!). Obviously, they won't all be on here but I'll pick my faves!

So... 22 hours and 10 mins later, after having lunch in San Francisco and who-knows-what meals on the Boeing 747-400, I finally arrived in HK. I was super excited about getting my passport stamped, after it not being touched for a whole YEAR!

With no jet-lag AT ALL, we headed to the hotel, cleaned up and went straight out to explore!

Checking out the neighborhood near our hotel (Causeway Bay area). Stores sure stay open later in Hong Kong! It had to be at least past 10:30 pm there! See how busy it is!

They go crazy with Xmas decorations!
Forever 21 top and chandelier necklace, Sparkle & Fade sequin skirt (Urban Outfitters), Christian Siriano for Payless booties, Zara studded bag

We finally picked out a tiny place to eat that had beef noodle soup and wonton soup! They also served fresh mango juice, my fave! Both the soups and the mango juice were SOOOOO good! California can't compare!!!

The temperature in HK was pretty high. About 70something degrees... but very humid and foggy. At least I didn't have to lug around my jacket and big boots I had to wear for the past 22 hours on the plane (because they took up too much room to pack!).

Anyway, please follow-up for the new posts coming up! There will be lots of photos!!! :)

  1. I have come to the conclusions that Hong Kong and Tokyo are places I need to move to!!! It always looks so festive!! I'm jealous!
