(On Discovery Bay)
Third and last post about Hong Kong.
On the third day, I should have actually gone to China for the day, well, that was the plan. My German colleagues could actually by a visa for the day at the boarder directly, like we were told we could. Of course we never thought that French people (like me) couldn’t get one that easily… Hehe
No, no, French people have to apply first and need 4 working days to get a visa. Some kind of (weird) agreement I guess, which forced me to ge back to HK for the day, which wasn’t easy either since I had to go through 3 passport checks just to get back to HK.
So if you’re French, don’t think you’ll get the same treatment as the other European countries over there – Wann go to China? Nope.
So these 2 last days were made of other discoveries: Discovery Bay, HK night life, the market on Temple Street, drinking coconut juice directly from the fruit…
Here are the last pictures from this crazy week in Asia. I’ll be back Hong Kong!

Second post about my trip to Hong Kong this week. The second day was made of meetings in the morning and sightseeing in the afternoon, followed by some drinks at the Ozone Bar, the highest bar in HK (in the Ritz Carlton Hotel).
In the afternoon we went to Kowloon island, to make some shopping and have some drinks on nice terraces. All this under a hot and humid weather, normal for this season.
Here are some of the best pictures.

I’m back home! And eventhough I loved Hong Kong, it feels great to sleep in your bed again, and have a not-so-humid-and-hot-weather anymore.
I tried to take a lot of pictures to give you guys the best impressions. I really recommend HK, it’s a really great mix between Asian culture and occidental cultures. You feel you’re on the other side of the world, but not too much, so you still feel comfortable.
The weather was not very nice (grey sky and some rain) but we still got a good vibe of the city.
The first day was mainly meetings directly after the flight – in WAY too climatised rooms- and a nice evening on Hong Kong Island enjoying the nice views and the good chinese food! Love it!
Here are also a fiew things that surprised/impressed me in HK:
A little while ago, I received the unexpected but way too charming present: a tooth brush from Paul Smith.
It’s the kind of gift that is always a good surprise and that you won’t see twice. I still didn’t use it, I just can’t, it’s too pretty and it’s black haha plus, it’s kind of a treasure!
I don’t know about you, but I usually hate animal prints for clothes. If it’s not well worn or if it is on a too big surface (like a whole dress or jacket) it looks cheap. Well it’s what I think…
I don’t know why this time I loved it, but it seems I got used to this type of print. I actually think it looks great on accessories like a belt or shoes, to add something to a simple outfit. I would never wear leo prints with red liptstick, a complicated dress or something like this. I think is only works with jeans, natural colors etc…
As you can see, it’s a complicated subject, and I am sure you all have different opinions on that matter.
Anyway, I love these shoes and can’t wait to wear them!
What’s you opinion on animal prints?
