Recent trip to Hong Kong

I love this time of the year....not just because it's the holiday season, but because I get to travel abroad to Asia to spend time with my sister and her family. I just returned from a 3 week trip to Asia, where two weeks were spent in Hong Kong, and one week was spent in Phuket, Thailand. Though traveling with a toddler is always exhausting, we had a ton of fun!

Hong Kong is known for its amazing holiday decorations during this time of the year. Beautiful lighting and designs can be seen everywhere, and it feels super festive no matter where you are! I was super excited to see the design by Preston Bailey at the Landmark in Central, Hong Kong. Sadly, I had left my camera at home that day, but you can check out a few pictures from Preston's blog!

There are always two highlights of my trips to Hong Kong--shopping and eating. For those who have traveled there before, you know exactly what I am talking about! From street vendors to unique boutiques to luxury brands, you could never get tired of the shopping scene there. Same goes for the food, as you can see here below!

My brother in law, a wonderful architect, recently finished a major project in Hong Kong--the brand new W hotel. He took us there for dinner and a tour one evening, and I was awe-inspired by how grand and luxurious this W hotel was. From the hip, chic decor to the impeccable service, I was deeply impressed.

Last, but not least, one of my favorite restaurants from this trip was Wasabisabi inside Times Square in Causeway Bay. I loved the decor of the place, and the asian-fusion menu was awesome! Here are some photos:
