Weekend snippets #14



We embarked on quick two-day-one-night trip to China on the day of Hong Kong’s return to China. That sounds rather appropriate, doesn’t it ? 

I was the girl who almost missed her ferry because she was stuck in long changing room/ cashier queues in a bid to buy discount Esprit undies.

We were at the beach, different ones, on both our days in Zhuhai. One of the beaches comes with horses, friendly dogs, a pool, RMB 25 mugs of Carlsberg draft beer and no noisy expats. We would go back to Zhuhai just for this. Parfait ! 

My first haircut in six or seven months didn’t turn out too shabby. I treated myself to a hair spa too.

Ok, have to admit that it was quite a self-indulgent weekend. I treated myself to sunnies (my first pair !) and a sleeveless white blouse that I’ve been looking for a while. So close to buying something cheap on ASOS but ended up with Greyhound’s version. I’m telling myself it’s a good thing to support Southeast Asian designers.

Spent an enjoyable afternoon at the relatively quiet and non-crowded part of Causeway Bay where I had a very tasty late lunch of orecchiette with zucchini and asparagus washed down by a glass of honey thyme tea.

I watched A Fistful of Dollars without actually realizing that Joe the Americano was Clint Eastwood.
