“Go get a passport.” That’s what my Ate (elder sister) told me on the day of Sinulog while I was on my way to a party. “What? Why? How? Wha- “I was stuttering and lost for words not because I didn’t know what’s going to happen but because I do know what it is about – the bitch, I call a sister, bought me a ticket going to Hong Kong and I is happy and thankful. It would be my first time to be out of the country and I got overly excited but I didn’t let it show.
Fast forward to June 6th and I was walking the streets of Tsim Sha Tsui with my pink shirt tucked in my loose-cut jeans drinking a cup of Coke from a local restaurant we directly dined in upon arrival.
We checked in to our AirBnB-like flat [because who has time for a hotel when you’re just gonna spend every single day and night exploring the city], freshened up from the tiring morning flight, and greeted the Pearl of the Orient with enthusiasm and over-the-yonder energy despite the scorching hot sun beams.
Since my friends lent me some ~weapons~ for this trip [because I’m a poor blogger], I had the chance to use their gadgets in my own point of view. I really don’t know if I’m such a good photographer or it’s just the good camera but what was alive was my interest in taking pictures of the views and subjects that I have seen for some travel memories to keep [and for the ‘gram. And also for this blog].
We spent two days in Hong Kong and all those walking and train rides and walking again did me some chances to take photos. I just love how there is so much life in the city – there is always something happening somewhere – but I narrowed my focus on the abstract things that people normally dismiss. All that I wanted to be reflected through my [borrowed] camera is a representation of every different part of Asia’s City of Life.
Without further ado, here are some doses of Hong Kong through the eyes of moi…
Surely after this trip, Hong Kong has become my new favorite HK (sorry Heidi Klum). I will be posting some more stuff about this trip and I’m surely hoping to come back [@ my parents].
