Hi everyone! It has been a few days since my last post. On Tuesday, I decided to take my boyfriend to One Dim Sum. The plan was to explore Tsim Sha Tsui so our first destination was Kowloon Park where we accidentally stumbled upon the Avenue of Animation. This was actually my favorite part of the day. ...

HK: Feels Like Home

Compared to the courses at Drexel University, the ones offered here are a lot easier but there’s something about being on exchange that makes you lazier.

HK: RIP Phone

Ironically after writing a post on how to save money, I now have to spend $440 USD on a new phone because someone stole my previous one. Long story short, I was dancing at a club in Lan Kwai Fong when someone took my phone straight from my purse. Side note, get a more secure ...
