Hong Kong 101: A visit to the highest bar in the world.
Stop by every Tuesday and Thursday when I’ll share a new tip or some of my favourite things in Hong Kong! You could have a drink and a bite to eat at a different place everyday in Hong Kong, but one place you should not miss is Ozone. Located on top of the International Commerce Centre (ICC) building on the 118th floor, Ozone touts itself as the highest sky bar and lounge in the world and is also part of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. I loved that it’s an indoor-outdoor terrace and lounge that lets you sit right at the edge giving you the most beautiful view of Hong Kong, but also allows…
Hong Kong 101: Bring your flats girls.
Stop by every Tuesday and Thursday when I’ll share a new tip or some of my favourite things in Hong Kong! New York is definitely a concrete jungle, but apart from the Meatpacking District, it’s also a flat one. Something I wish someone (anyone) would have told me before I arrived in Hong Kong is to buy flats, and lots of them because unless you want to fall (like I have many times in the beginning) flats are just the way to go here. When I say heel, I’m talking about the usual 4 or 5 inches that I wore as one of my staples in New York. I’m…
Feature in the Hong Kong Economic Journal!
So excited to share that I’m featured in today’s Hong Kong Economic Journal!! I was born a U.S. citizen, so I’ve never had to deal with some of the issues that my parents had to when they left their respective country and commonwealth to come to the U.S., like not knowing the language, not having family support, and feeling overwhelmed by any and everything. These past few weeks, I think I’ve felt some of what my parents and many others before me arriving in a new place must have. It’s exciting and terrifying all at once. It’s because of this, that being in this paper means so much. It’s putting…
Hong Kong 101: The Central Mid-Levels Escalator System
Stop by every Tuesday and Thursday when I’ll share a new tip or some of my favorite things in Hong Kong! This is SO Hong Kong, and one of the things that I saw (and got on) when I first arrived. The Central Mid-Levels escalator system is the world’s longest outdoor covered escalator system. It’s about 800 meters long and about 135 meters above in the air. It runs from Queens Center Road to Conduit Road in the Mid-Levels. There are several points in the escalator system when you can get on and off (about 14). It runs downhill towards the business center from approximately 6-10 am when everyone is…
Latina in Hong Kong
Some of you may have been following my adventures and know that I met a special person (now boyfriend) “J” who is the best friend of Bryce, whom I met while filming Project Runway All Stars. Well the stars certainly aligned, the timing finally became right for us (both dating other people when we first met), and now we are in this full-blown relationship that has changed my life.
