random weekend of FUN!!!!
for many, many weeks now, i've really been wanting to go to hong kong for the weekend. plans always never pushed through cause my friends were busy at work, or work came up for me. finally, last week, i decided to just go for it and go on my own! thanks to technology, and thanks to twitter, i found out that my super fabulous friend liz was also planning to go to hong kong, so.. we just decided to go together! :) two of our other fabulous friends, robby and tim heard about the trip and got inggit, so they joined too! super random!!!! super fun!!!!
it was so random because liz and i are friends, but we really only see each other when we go out at night! tim and liz are close, tim and robby are close, and both liz and i are friends with robby but again, we only see each other out! it was so random and really, sometimes those are the best plans.. no plans!!!! i made like a travel agent and booked all our flights, liz booked our hotel, and we all just were game face for the last weekend of the hong kong sale!
hong kong is really a shopping mecca and you can really buy everything from high end to bargain finds, from outfits to little memorabilias. it was so perfect because for this trip, liz and i had only one main itinerary in mind.. shooooooooes!!!! we walked and train-d from area to area in search of the most beautiful shoes on their final sale price, and i have to say, we were super successful!!!! this photo above is liz's super fierce alaia shoe that we both fell in love with and both agreed she musssst have! robby and tim also had amazing finds and we all can't wait to "launch" them here in manila! :p
aside from shopping, a hong kong trip would not be complete without the nightlife!!!! lucky me, because liz, tim, and robby have many hong kong based friends, and i always love meeting new friends! :) i met ruslan the russian stylist, francis the pr manager, jane the brand manager, and kay li the fierce socialite! that night was the perfect night to go out too because it was the closing night of m1nt, so the place was super packed, everyone was all out dancing, and though the music wasn't that great (manila djs rock! :p) we had so much fun!!!!
the trip was sooo much fun!!!! although i don't have photos of all the food we ate, we did eat a loooot! our first lunch when we landed, we were eating for four hours! hahahhaa! every single meal we'd say, "o, we won't eat so much na, we'll order just right." but every single meal, we end up stuffing ourselves! how could we not?! all the yummy goose and dimsum!!!! it was a super fun weekend of shopping and eating! really, sometimes you have the most fun when you just go with the flow of where random plans take you!
i'll see you soon, hong kong! ♥
