Hong Kong - Updated!


Just arrived back from a little bit of time in Hong Kong, i'll show you all a few more pictures later today... Off to play A&D PR this AM!

I must say, whilst i had an amazing time, I missed Australia and was so glad to come back to our home, the clear sky, the open space and the puppies of course! Kellie xx

Updated....

Below are some further pictures of our time in Hong Kong. I think what amazed me most was with the obsession with designer stores and the mix of street markets to almost immediately beautiful, high end boutiques. Wearing a size 41 or 42, the largest shoe size in a boutique we found was a 38.5, being 5ft 11' sadly my feet didnt even get to try on a shoe! Needless to say, my credit card was most relieved!

We stayed at the W Hotel and pictures are below. I actually loved this place and to be honest, I couldn't fault it. The service was outrageously wonderful, the decor was fun, the pool as you will see was stunning and it was in a lovely place, right on top of a beautiful shopping centre.

Picture 1 - Walking on the streets of Hong Kong - one of the very few streets that wasn't grid lock with cars

Picture 2 & 3- Trying on Dame Edna style sunglasses at the Night Markets - for those who love sparkles on their sunglasses, at $3-$5 a pair, you could have a different pair for every day of the week!

Picture 4 - Pretty bangles from the markets. These all cost me about $1.

Picture 5 - Hong Kong by night and the bamboo scaffolding which would be build way up into the sky. Obviously it must be rather strong but being used to steel in Australia, I couldn't help but a feel a little nervous looking at it!

Picture 6 & 7 - I loved our lift area in the hotel which was styled with all white pieces of books and white interesting odds and sods - kind of like the gorgeous stuff from Have You Met Miss Jones. The ceilings also had fabulous detailing which gave the space a glamorous feeling.

Picture 8 & 9 - The pool and spa area at the hotel was on the 76th floor and could be seen from a distance across alot of Hong Kong because of the beautiful purple lights which shone on a mosaic tiled wall with the most gorgeous butterfly detailing. You can see from the size of me compared to the wall how huge it was and also how high the pool is compared to the building lights along side it.

Picture 10 - The view from our room. Only 1 day you could see the islands in the distance, most days it was quite hazy like this which really made me appreciate home

We also visited Macau which was possibly even more hazy and I was shocked with the amount of people trying to get through customs to go to the casino's. People were pushing in and yelling at each other which kept our wait in the customs line much more entertaining. Chivalry was certainly dead in Macau!

  7. I've been to Hong Kong, but as a teenager, would love to visit again. I remember being a bit overwhelmed with the busyness, and sheer volume of people. I think I'd appreciate all the beautiful things there a lot more now. I love your dress/top in the sunnies photo. And isn't it great to have a home you love to come back too. xxx
