Weekend Wind-Down #95

HONG KONG 6503

Holy crap...a week from now, Missy and I will be back in HONG KONG! How did that sneak up on us so fast? It was about two years ago since the last time Missy and I were both in China for work. In anticipation of our trip back, I pulled out some of my favorite photos from our adventure...if you're reading this on our blog (and not on Missy's Facebook page), you can access our old posts about our times in China by clicking on the "CHINA" button under our list of tags...

have lots of fun in hong kong and china!

have you heard of this indie-pop club night in hong kong? (http://www.facebook.com/group.php?v=wall&gid=55739287607) i only found out about this group when i was in hk, and sadly my dates didn't coincide with any of their events.

Ack! I *just* joined their Facebook group - I'm sad that we're going to miss the Bobby McGee's by just a couple of days! We're only going to be in HK a couple of days - one free day, and then another half day working before we take a train to somewhere else...

Hi Grace!

Missy and I work for a company in town that designs "balloons and coordinating gift items"...you know when you go into Kroger and there's that section that has all the balloons, stuffed animals, and novelty floral vases and stuff? Well, we design that stuff! Missy is a product designer and I am the research / reference / resource librarian in the Art Department of our company...we work together!
