Peek into my life 72

EN

Yay this week is fall break for me! Even its just for a week, I am going to fully enjoy it. Probably I'll be busying myself with work anyway such as sketching, yarn projects and Christmas of course! I can't wait for Christmas.

But for now lets check out what I've been up to lately in my quirky life in The Netherlands and bits of Hong Kong too shall we.

Joepie, herfstvakantie deze week voor mij! Ook al is het een week en is die week zo weer om, ik ga lekker genieten. Waarschijnlijk hou ik mezelf ook goed bezig met andere dingen zoals schetsen, haken en voorbereiding voor de Kerst natuurlijk!

Maar voor nu wil ik even terugblikken van mijn recente leventje in Nederland en Hong Kong.

It seems that every important city has a big ferris wheel like this one in Hong Kong called Observation Wheel.

The app game Pokemon Go was and is probably still popular in Hong Kong. And something tells me that these group of youngsters are fanatic Pokemon Go players.
One of the best cup sleeve I have seen in my life. Here at Main St. Café I had hot flavored blueberry cacao because I was curious. That`s right blueberry flavored cacao but I barely tasted any blueberries init, just the very slightest hint of blueberry and tart.

The many hat days in Hong Kong.
Food Expo
Here I was with my niece at a Food Expo festival and I always wondered how a food festival in Hong Kong would look like. It is immensely crowded, lots of free food tasting and promotion and deals on merch so pretty much nothing a like of what I know in Holland. Except that the price on foods were quite pricy just like in Holland. More about this Food Expo soon!
Me and my nieces favorite: turnip cake with lots of XO sauce!
Hong Kong and their many amazing looking cake displays. Why does Holland not have these?
Giving my lungs some fresher air in Tai O town. More of this adventure in the future blog post!
OMG! I met Natalie from the blog http://www.dignifiable.com/! She`s lovely and it was our first time meeting up in real life and it was a quick meeting up too sadly. Basically we met up on the day of my departure from Hong Kong but luckily I got a very late night flight schedule so I squeezed my meet up with Natalie in the early morning in Tsim Sha Tsui.

We decided to get breakfast but we couldn`t find any descent cafés. Not even a McDonald`s which was odd! I felt pretty silly and wished I`ve done more research of finding breakfast spots in TST but thanks to Natalie we`ve found a hidden café somewhere and nowhere. Here we had: HK milk tea and toast and lots of talking of course!

I really liked our meeting up and I hope we can meet up again in the future Natalie, maybe in Holland or even better: in Australia!

I`ve made a chocolate cake for my besties birthday.
Recently I have met up with Elisa from http://www.memorable-days.net/ again in Rotterdam and it was a fun foodie day! We even watched Bridget Jones Baby too in the cinema which for the record was a good movie. More detailed of our fun foodie day at this blogpost:

How adooorable are these handmade bags! They are €149,- per each.
A feast for my papas birthday dinner!
For my work I`ve been assigned to teach and guide refugee children this year. Communication wise can be tough honestly. Lucky for me some of the refugee children who lived in The Netherlands for a couple of years helped me out with their classmates who doesn`t know Dutch at all, plus books like these are helpful too and it`s pretty interesting for myself too!
For my other creative part of working, I have been making, crocheting and selling crown hats and game inspired items for my (nerd) friends and customers.

  3. Ngaw! Next time we will plan it a little better, but it was great nonetheless! I still need to write about it (and Hong Kong in general, I am so behind in my posts).

    Those books (for school) are so interesting, and I love how the kids are helping each other out. It is such a wonderful attribute and something (sadly) that I think people grow out of when they get older!

  4. Have a great time off for Fall Break! I enjoyed my time so much :D I'll have another break for Thanksgiving before I'm off for Winter Break. I can't wait for Christmas and it seems too far away! // Ooh all those blog meet-ups; how fun! // Oh gosh, I'd blow so much money at the Food Expo! I'd love to go, but perhaps it's best that I didn't ;P -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's
