Coming from the Airport, which is on another island, to Hong Kong, we usually take the underground/under-harbor MTR (public transit) but it is a really cool drive, especially going through the port. Ever since Season Two of The Wire, set … Continue reading →
In 1948, the last time London hosted the Olypmics, a Dutch housewife won four gold medals–while being three months preggers! “Fanny Blankers-Koen of Holland, 6 feet tall and 30 years old, was a “shy, towering, drably domesticated” straw-blonde mother of … Continue reading →
I am so excited… I just came across this really fun idea. You’ve heard of holiday card swaps a la Brooklyn Bride, where a blogger connects random people and you send a card to one person and someone else sends … Continue reading →
Since I’ve never flown first or business on KLM, I just learned about their tradition of giving their upper cabins little blue-and-white Delftware homes modeled after old Dutch canal homes and filled with Jenever (a juniper flavored liquor quite similar … Continue reading →
Mr. Porter, a new men’s fashion site (an obvious male take on Net-A-Porter), just launched today and they ship to Hong Kong so I thought it might be worth giving their site a review. The UK-based company sells a lot … Continue reading →

The capes and hats were to die for! (Sidenote: How perfect are the colors with my HKH logo!)
Tarlan’s mother was in town and she sewed all the capes and hot-glued all the ribbons onto the hats.
We did a little shower for Monique while in Thailand.
It was the traditional, hang up all the lingerie and make the bride guess who gave what.
But the exotic locale made it a little more fun!
I love how lush and green it is there… but you do have to accept that it also rains daily to make that possible.
It’s good to make sure at least one gal gives a white ensemble for this game…
We didn’t get around to playing until it was dark, so Lauren is nicely highlighting each outfit with her phone!
I think her trousseau is in good shape for the honeymoon… I hope she plays the paper bag game where she makes her new husband pick out a new outfit for each night…
A few weeks back, six of us girls hopped on a quick, 3 hour flight to Thailand to celebrate our friend Mo’s upcoming nuptials.
We were so lucky to get to hang out in such a beautiful place!
I just couldn’t get enough of the limestone pebble islands. It really was a lot like Halong Bay, only in Thailand.
All we really did the whole weekend was gab away and look at the changing vista.
The weekend was a little bit of a send-off, reunion as well as one of our dear friends who had moved back to the States was in town from North Carolina and three of the gals are moving back to the US in the next few months… so it was especially nice to have this time together.
One big, last hurrah! And lots of marriage advice for Miss Monique as well.
The resort we stayed at was affiliated with the floating cinema I wrote about a little while back and they had a cool, outdoor theatre set-up year round.
To get to the resort, you have to take a 30-min car ride from the airport to a marina and then a 45-min boat ride, but the boat trip is definitely one of the highlights of the trip.
We caught the start of rainy season so we got some crazy thunderstorms… but the weather changes so quickly so we also got a few really nice sunny hours. To avoid the rain, we traveled around the rainforest in golfcarts. All the little villas were spaced apart so we kind of felt like we had the resort to ourselves.
Above, a view back on the resort from the boat.
We had our own little lilly pond, complete with croaking frogs.
A lot of food we ate was grown on the premises and they even made their own rubber… pretty cool.
And here we are in our matching Old Navy pareos… the little favor gift for the weekend.
Next up: some pics of the actual wedding shower part of the weekend!
