Hong Kong Walks: Tai Hang

Hope you are having a great weekend! After spending the whole day hiking under the sun in Lamma Island yesterday, today we decided to remain in the city and have an easy going Sunday. As always, I browsed the internet and blogs in search for new places to visit (I love the fact that even after living in Hong Kong…

Hong Kong Cafes: Polygon Cafe

There’s a few cafes that I find myself going repeatedly. Mainly because I like trying new places, and secondly, because many times the experience is good but not “great” = not worth going again. Polygon Cafe is different though – they managed to create a very relaxed and cozy ambience that make it the perfect lazy Saturday hangout. I love…

5 Effortless Zero Waste Swaps

It’s no news that we are destroying the planet with the excessive use of plastic in our modern lives. It is especially evident in Hong Kong, where it is said more than 2000 tonnes of polystyrene, industrial and commercial plastic is thrown out daily (gosh!) If you google “zero waste swaps” you will find tons of ideas on how you…

Hong Kong Escapades: Big Wave Bay Beach

A couple of weekends ago, we took advantage of a rare sunny weekend here in Hong Kong (someone explain to me why it’s raining so much this year?!) and went hiking from Dragon’s Back Hike Trail to Big Wave Bay Beach. We set off relatively early (8am) hoping that we would arrive to the beach just in time for lunch.…

How to stick to your daily workout routine

I’ve never been a sports person. I frequently go hiking and do yoga but I’m not a big fan of heavy duty workouts and I honestly hate gyms. But somehow I’ve fallen in love with a routine that involves spending 40min at the gym every day. How did that happen?! Well, I was starting to feel a bit restless and moody…

Hong Kong Walks: Sheung Wan

Home is where the heart is… I’ve been living in Hong Kong for almost 3 years now. When we were apartment hunting, I visited many neighbourhoods on the Hong Kong Island side and I gotta say Sheung Wan was love at first sight. I knew that I wanted to live here and were lucky to find an apartment we liked…

Affordable date ideas in Hong Kong

It’s no secret that Hong Kong is one of the most expensive cities in the world. You can easily spend $100 USD on a meal for two at a trendy restaurant and while I love doing that once in a while, it’s certainly not something I can afford to do on a weekly basis. Having lived in Hong Kong for…

Pamper Saturdays: Spa L’Occitane

At least once a month or so, I love to spend some quality me time at a spa or beauty salon. I put my phone on airplane mode, disconnect and relax. Choosing a spa/salon can prove challenging in Hong Kong, where there’s a million options. That’s why I decided to start a new series “Pamper Saturdays” on the blog, where…

Why I’m a weekday vegetarian

How to be healthy and maintain an ideal weight is one of the most discussed subjects among my group of girlfriends, and it’s a topic that fascinates everyone. I mean, who doesn’t want to have a good life and optimal health? 5 years ago, a healthy lifestyle seemed pretty much unattainable for me though. I was working crazy hours, struggled with…
