I wasn't able to post at all last week because work was such a whirl as I prepared for my vacation. I flew out Thursday night to Hong Kong and worked from the Hong Kong office on Friday. This was my way of maximizing my vacation time (which started right after work on Friday night) and minimizing my time off from work. Working from HK also had the other benefit of finally meeting in person many of my colleagues who I work with regularly over the phone and Internet.
Hong Kong was lovely -- this was my first vacation since Lunar New Year, and I really needed it! By Friday morning, I'd had only 14 hours of sleep in 3 days. I caught up with my cousin Pei, met up with my friend David over Indian food (yum!), enjoyed the Hong Kong harbor view from the Peninsula's Felix, went hiking on Lamma island, saw a beautiful sunset at the Clearwater Bay Country Club in the New Territories, made a quick trip to Macau where I ate at the famed Fernando's, and had fantastic dim sum (as usual) at Victoria Seafood.
Pictures to go up (hopefully) this weekend!
