last supper

to say my cousin and his family were the most awesome hosts is an understatement and then they took me to the izakaya/seafood joint ronin for my final meal. so thankful!

they offered me this bottle to go,
but couldn't fit in hand luggage

shaved ice with my name on it (literally)

macau redux

i fell in love with macau over decade ago and knew i wanted to go back while in hong kong. it's known as the vegas of asia, but for me it was the remnants of the portuguese that enthralled me for a return.  both my cousin and my wife questioned my day trip decision but i guess i had to see for myself. it has changed and the tourist groups (i was amongst them for my first visit) kind of make it unbearable. i do think i've gotten the macanese reverie out of my system.

kongers: first 24 hours

landed and headed straight to a music festival. sound about right? my sweet cousin and his wife really know how to show a gal around. i hadn't been back to hong kong in over a decade and rarely ventured to the hong kong island side so needless to say a whole new hk for me. my first day was a food and art tour with my cousin lance, followed by an early thanksgiving dinner with family.  that hasn't happened in over a decade too.
