CC & GS have been in HK for two whole months. Still exploring new places, but settling nicely. Made some new friends, learnt some new words and tried some new food. It's not been easy. Tears have been cried. But hearing from friends and family at home makes them smile. Highlights of the trip so far include; Hot Pot, NYE, Mountain trail, minced pork & tofu, stew time, fusion food restaurant, Fringe Club roof garden, counting song in cantonese, cow skin rug, family arrivals, high waisted jeans & american apparel shorts, simply Thai, Kimmy visit, skype and my new shiny macbook.
On the agenda next...tutoring.
Generally hanging out with each other and BEING MARRIED tops it all though!
I am not a professional, knowing what can and can't be captured is proving difficult, the boundaries? Could do with some advice from people...I do not want to encroach anyones personal space, however, I do want to get some "real" shots.
Last night friends took us to experience the traditional Hot Pot. This consists of a simmering metal pot of stock at the center of the dining table. While the hot pot is kept simmering, ingredients are placed into the pot and are cooked at the table. This was a great way to dine with friends in a fun, sharing way. It's kind of like a mini cook off. My favorite ingredients were; king prawn skewers, mini corn-cobs, tofu and fish skin. This is nothing like the Lancashire hot pot which us northerners may be used to!
