Off to see the bright lights

Hong Kong lights, by vendmr

So I'm off to Hong Kong tomorrow for a whirlwind family reunion. It'll be the first time my parents and siblings are in the same country since my wedding back in 2006!

There'll be lots of eating, a bit of shopping, and I predict buckets of tears when I say farewell to my brother who is moving to Japan (and it's his birthday today, happy birthday B!).

Mr Curious won't be coming as he can't take time off work. I'm going to miss him, but I suspect TLG will miss him even more! Mr C is recording some videos for TLG to watch in HK as I type <3

I won't be blogging during the trip, but I'm getting a local SIM so my iPhone will be in action and I plan to tweet on and post photos on instagram (under mscuriousccm).

Don't miss me too much! I'll be back before you know it ;-D

P.S. I went to the Red Cross and donated blood today. Their blood supply running low so please donate if you're eligible!


  1. Enjoy your time with your family! Can't wait to see what wallet you bring home ;)

  2. Have a fabulous time! Happy birthday to your brother! x
