十五 | TEDx WanChai

October 29th, 2016 For those who know me, you may already know that I’m a big fan of TED. If I’m ever watching something it’s either Japanese Anime, NBA basketball, or TED talks. I even have a little dream to give my own TED talk one day, so being able to attend a TEDx event ...

十四 | Hong Kong Wine & Dine Festival

October 30th, 2016 After a rough 4 nights studying back to back for midterms, I had a pretty exciting weekend to relieve the stresses. Starting of with the Hong Kong Wine and Dine Festival! This is held every fall lasting 4 nights at the Central Harbourfront. There are hundreds of stalls set up festival-style with ...

〇 | Hong Kong.

September 2nd , 2016 So today concludes my first full week here in Hong Kong. All seven days have been quite adventurous… a little more than I expected, which is great! There’s also no sign of me recovering from jetlag just yet, I don’t know what time zone I’m running on. I wake up at ...

三 | MTR>MTA>SEPTA

September 11th, 2016 The Mass Transit Railway (MTR) is easily the greatest public transportation system I have yet to experience. It’s so simple and easy to get around. There is pretty much an MTR stop near every destination you would want to go to in Hong Kong, and if not there will be connecting busses ...

五 | Food for thought

September 18th, 2016 Because some of the food I had to think twice about haha. But honestly, there’s a plethora of options to eat. Like really, there are restaurants of different cuisines all over. Hong Kong is a place where Western and Eastern cultures meet, so on the days when I feel a bit homesick ...

八 | Worldly Exchanges

But now that I’m actually an international student here at HKUST I’ve realized that there is so much adjusting that they go through. You have to cope to new living conditions, along with ...

九 | Thailand Part 1

October 1st, 2016 I’m not sure the next time I’ll make it to this hemisphere, so I’m going to try and maximize my travels over here. This sounds quite expensive, yes I’m far from rich, but travel is surprisingly really manageable. Well for one I’m in closer proximity to places like Thailand, mainland China, Japan ...

十 | Thailand Part 2

October 4th, 2016 So adventure number one was to the Chattuchak Weekend Market. We took Bangkok’s Mass Transit System to get there, which was fairly simple to navigate through and very crowded. It was about a 20-minute ride from our stay in Sukhumvit.               Boy oh Boyy the market ...

六 | Touristy Things prt. 1

September 23rd, 2016 I can’t believe I’ve been in Hong Kong for a month. Time is seriously flying by and I’m in no rush for this experience to end. At the same time I feel like I’ve been here longer than a month, and it’s probably because of all the adventuring I’ve done. There’s a ...

十一 | Still in the books

October 9th, 2016 *No pictures As you can see I’ve been having so much fun, but rest assured I’m putting in just as much work into courses. I do find my classes interesting which is a plus so the work is less of a drag. Just a reminder all of my classes are taught in ...
