Jade and I managed to jet off for a quick weekend in Hong Kong and Macao, before all the crazy stuff begins to happen in the next couple of months with her job – she’ll be spending rather a lot of time in Beijing from now on. Unfortunately, she managed to visit for the first time just a few days before while on business, but for once I have to thank her workaholic boss for showing her only the airport, client’s office and hotel.
I am a relative expert with this place, so we managed to tick off a few favourites, as well as my first trip into the New Territories – far, far more pleasant than I ever would have expected. Indeed, it reminded me of Yangming mountain in its scale and beauty, and I came away rather impressed and relaxed having spent a day on the amazing public transport and taking in some cafes and nature. Somehow managed to forget to take any photos though!
I was pretty amazed and delighted to bump into Lorenzo after a cool night listening to African funk at Yumla. He forgot to tell me his new phone number, so he took a wild guess as to where we might be and we met him in the street, which was a pretty cool feeling.
