Those that know me will understand my career requires a ridiculous amount of travel. Within the last 12 months alone I spent a considerable amount of time in Asia including; HK, China, Vietnam and even Bangladesh (check out my Dhaka photo diary).
My almost full passport is evidence of my frequent visits to HK and China, including a 5 week stretch last year where I was able to fully engross myself into the culture, the people and the way of life. My weekdays were spent moving around mainland China busy visiting factories and meeting with manufactures, whereas the weekends I would return to HK and literally try to squeeze in as much as I could to learn and discover more about this intriguing and amazing place. I wanted to fully utilise this unique opportunity to try and get a taster as to what it could possibly be like to live in Asia more specifically HK. From when I first visited back in 2009 I felt the potential that one day could this be a place to call my home. Though don’t get me wrong this was mixed with some obvious reservations, including being a women of colour throwing myself into an environment that is not only different culturally to what I am accustomed to but also the reality of living somewhere that is not as ethnically diverse.
Over the next few weeks I hope to share my HK diary, from the people I met, to the beautiful sites all from my own unique prospective. So make sure you come back to see more about my HK adventure and to make sure you are the first to know, subscribe to the blog or follow me on ALL the social media @mymagnoliasky
