The past 2 weeks has been insanely busy meeting friends and clients at different times of the day and different places across Hong Kong Island, and at the same time hot and humid despite the sun block was completely utter useless, they melt after 30 minutes of application with white-cast all over your face along with the sweat. Catching up with friends with more rounds of food and drinks at Sevva, Maxim’s Palace, Fu Lu Shou, Classified, BEP, Nha Trang and my weekly iced lemonade fix from Nosh to cool off the absurd heat.
With the new MTR station opened on Island Line late last year I finally ventured out to Kennedy Town for the first time, having been driven past it a dozen times via taxi to get to the south of Hong Kong Island, the industrial town reminds me of a shabby seaside town in Margate. With a character of course. Kennedy Town (and Sai Ying Pun) is soon to be my favourite go-to place for abundance of photography walk, heritage trail such as the Lo Pan Temple, a grade l listed building located on Ching Lin Terrace (a 8 minute steep climb on top of Li Po Lung Path), cool eateries at Fish & Chick, Chino, Shoreditch, Bistro du Vin, Bresola, K-Town and many more. I have to come back and try everything there when I’m back in town, despite the distance, I have been hanging out in Sheung Wan for too, too long.
During the final week of my stay in Hong Kong, I found a spare afternoon for a full body massage at Happy Foot Luxe on Lyndhurst Terrace in Central, I usually go for their medical massage (similar to sports massage and Thai massage) when I’m back in town. I highly recommend this place for their thrusty, acupressure massage therapy to relieve muscle tension, headache, helps to reduce water retention, improve blood circulation and many more.
I was invited to take over the official The9thMuse Instagram account, they’re celebrating their 3rd birthday on Friday 22nd May this week. And then a manicure at The Nail Library (my favourite nail salon) to end the week.
Thank you Hong Kong, you have been awesome. See you in the autumn!
