|A gorgeous view en route to my birthplace, Hong Kong!|
Hello all! Hope you are all keeping cool wherever you are, because here in Hong Kong, the weather has been nothing but muggy, hot, and humid (not to mention there was a level 10 typhoon within days of my arrival!).
With the exception of today, I have been out and about from about 9 AM to 10 PM daily and since this time my boyfriend came along as well, I volunteered to be his tour guide and translator. It was his first time to Asia and I definitely wanted my hometown to make a good first impression! Needless to say, we ate. A LOT. Buuuuut we definitely worked for every meal since we got around mainly by MTR and foot. Oh, and did I mention we also added weights into that routine? How you ask? Well, for the sole purpose of good health in mind, we hit a few fantastic multi-level shopping centers and made sure to buy as much as we could in order to work out our arms. Carrying lots of shopping bags around a mall, up and down stairs and on public transportation is definitely a workout. Genius idea, I know, which leads me to my next inquiry: would any of you read a new series on this blog titled, "Shop n Drop," focusing on how to shop and drop calories at the same time? Let me know in the comments below!
ANYWAY- Enjoy some photos from my trip thus far.
