I got a haircut on a whim, ate curry fishballs on a stick, got my nails done (hot pink - not my idea!), had yeong chi kam low for the first time, sucked down bowls of wanton noodles, danced repeatedly to Jai Ho at Suen's apartment, got sunburnt on Shek O beach, sucked down more bowls of wanton noodles, had afternoon tea with AC at Mandarin Oriental, gulped down jello shots from the back of my palm, discovered Poutine fries drenched in what seemed like KFC gravy (yum!) at Cul de Sac, learned that I dislike Feather-Boa-like establishments, met some cool new friends, shopped myself silly at Causeway Bay and Lane Crawford, dined at Caprice, overcame the urge to buy an Alexander McQueen scarf I don't need and then came home in one piece.

Now what?

Back to the grind. I'll let the pictures do the talking. There aren't many, but they will have to do:

Getting our nails done at Feel Good Factor, highly recommended for its professionalism and pretty colors. Yes I'm easily sold like that

Suen taught me how to eat wanton noodles with vinegar. Apparently it helps to wash the gan shui (soap water) away

Yes, it happened. When Suen suggested that we go for a quick pampering wash and dry, I decided to do a little bit more. For months, I've been toying with the idea of donating my hair to Locks of Love and now I finally can. If you're gonna chop off more than 10 inches of yours, do consider a donation. The guidelines are easy peasy lemon squeezy. Really

Ta-da! Suen and me at Cul de Sac after hitting Dragon-I

...savoring post-clubbing Poutine fries

Scones and clotted cream at The Mandarin

With Hermes and friend at Volar

Staging Suen's collection of Nici sheep became an activity. I call this one Whispers of a Black Sheep

Dessert at Sift with Suen and Azura

HK is a city full of character. There's a touch of old world charm amidst new age architecture, making it hard not to love. For years I visited with my family going from one dim sum place to another, hopping from mall to mall. Often times, HK just felt like a lavish shopping trip for a teenager. This time around, with Suen helping organizing the itinerary (not to mention being older and all), it became the most productive city vacation I've had since meeting SW in Vegas. Thanks so much for having me Suen!

I'm so jealous!!! You girls must have had loads of fun!!

Sigh I was supposed to come over to SG next weekend since my parents were gonna be there for work but they decided to come back on Friday instead of staying the weekend.

So I guess I'll see you when you next come back to KL or something... :D

Forgot to add: Great haircut!!

Dang, I've been toying with the idea of cutting off my hair for ages now but I can't decide what hairstyle. So, I haven't cut my hair in months and it's almost until my waist now... Sheesh... indecisions...
