Someone asked me if what I wore on this photo is a cocktail or a gown and I replied both. It looked like a cocktail dress in front and ankong gown at the back. What do yiu think is right description of this outfit.
I was wrong when I posted a blog describing Hong Kong as a the shopping capital of Asia. When I saw on cable TV a show featuring Hong Kong as the shopping capital of the world, I remembered my post 3 weeks ago.
Hong Kong is truly a paradise for shopping . It has stores located at almost every turn either high-end designer stores or the average market stalls.For travellers looking forward to a shopping experience unlike any other, Hong Kong is definitely the place for you. They have a variety of products which include the latest designer brands to electronics, antiques, consumer goods, footwear or any other item. Hong Kong’s glitzy malls at the long strip of Canton Road, funky themed shops at Nathan Road , street markets in Mongkok, Central and Temple Street, boutiques and traditional Chinese stores in Hollywood street , have it all .
When we were having our vacation last July, we were awed at their bargain sale. They have lots of payment options too! You buy now or pay later through lay-away scheme. My husband who’s a music lover can’t help but enjoyed the musical instruments displayed at cheaper price from music stores. If only we have enough budget, we surely have hoarded a lot of items from different stores.
I just came home from a 5-day vacation from Hong Kong and yeah I have an enjoyable shopping spree at the street markets in Mongkok and Nathan Road. The malls were having lots of sale too. Our group were amused at the variety of marketing posters and banners posted on the mall’s window like : Final Sale, drop down sale, last call sale, extreme sale… etc..etc..etc.. They were all irresistible that we can not help but get inside each store. I will post some of the malls we have entered in my next posts. I am busy right now uploading pictures of our trip. There is only one thing I can say with Hong Kong – indeed it is the : SHOPPING CAPITAL ” of Asia.
We just officiated the wedding of our two church friends. Their respective family agreed to hold the special occasion on a mountain garden resort. It’s quite interesting to know that all the wedding entourage find it hard to go to the location since you have to travel an hour or so to reach the place. But once you’re there, you’ll forget the rugged and slippery road going to it for the place is such a paradise.
The wedding went smoothly with the ceremony and the reception ending in celebration and merrymaking. What I noticed during this special event are the platinum wedding bands the couple wore. I know that they want this occasion to be very special that’s why they chose to place their love in each other’s hand and heart.
