HK: Status Update

Random tidbit, the WiFi in Hall 10 and 11 is terrible. I had to move to the common room to upload the pictures I took in Vietnam for my previous post. Also today marks the end of my first two months in Hong Kong. Yay me! Earlier this week, I finally got my hair dyed. ...

HK: Visiting Vietnam

Last week I went to Da Nang, Vietnam with some friends and I had the time of my life. Vietnam is the first country that I have been to since studying at City University of Hong Kong where I have no idea what to expect. To begin with, flying HK Express is everything I expected ...

HK: Chinese New Year Like a Total Tourist

Chinese New Year was this Saturday and we had a week off so we celebrated it the most tourist-y ways possible. One of the major events was the Flower Market.

31. Bye, Hong Kong!

December 20, 2015   These four months have flown by so incredibly quickly — there are only 5 days until Christmas! Initially, as you guys may know, I really didn’t like Hong Kong when I arrived. Now, though, I really adore the city, and I regret not doing more when I was there. There is ...

30. Final Exams

December 18, 2015 Finals weeks have come and gone at CityU, and they were surprisingly very different from finals at Drexel. The university gave students a revision week to help prepare for the exams, which were held over two weeks. This was a nice change, considering the fact that at Drexel we sometimes have class ...

29. HK Cuisine: Dim Sum

December 11, 2015 Hold up. Until like a minute ago, I was struggling to come up with a blog post idea. These current few weeks are revision and final exam week here at CityU. A big plus about this university is that they give students a week of revision (a nice thing that is totally ...
