ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

Thanks Kryz for the nomination.

I know this challenge has a lot of haters but lets not forget that in the end it’s all for a good cause. Please check out this video by photographer Anthony Carbajal for an honest look at the what people who suffer from ALS have to live with: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cK7UUYt_vRI

Though the challenge is silly it shines a spotlight on this issue and it has raised $94.3M since July 29. I encourage everyone to donate over at ALSA.org. x

Shanghai

I recently went to Shanghai and instead of taking photos (I still did that but not a lot) I did something I little different and I made a video! I feel like this really lets you experience what I did during my trip.

Also, in case you didn’t know, earlier this year I started a lifestyle blog called:Β The Sunday Project. There I share with you all my DIYs, recipes, hair, and beauty tutorials. So be sure to check that out if that’s something you’re into. x

Hong Kong Cityscape

On my last trip to Hong Kong I rode the ferry for the first time and completely fell in love. There’s just something utterly calming and romantic about being on a ferry. Or I may just have that impression from years of watching Grey’s Anatomy. I especially love that it was a cool and cloudy day. Some would say gloomy, I say mysterious. I do enjoy cloudy days.

Hong Kong: Urban Bakery

Decided to make a little travel diary from my recent Hong Kong trip. I love discovering new restaurants, especially if that restaurant has amazing interiors and equally amazing food!

Enter Urban Bakery, we were starving, looking for a place to park ourselves and eat when we saw this eye-catching, black and white tiled, neon lit oasis. And the smell of the food they were serving instantly had me hooked.

I didn’t get to sample the desserts but check out the fun names! Definitely curious as to whats in a See You In Hell cake.

I had the Langoustine Croissantwich. I had never had langoustine before and it was delicious! But a cold sandwich and it must be the asian in me that just needs something hot during meals. My friend had the Duck Confit which was also really good. Would definitely recommend this place if you’re in the area!
