Hong Kong is a vibrant concrete jungle bustling with energy and character. Though too short, 48 hours spent in this lovely city was as wonderful as ever. Some would say it's heaven on Earth for shoppers and others would say it's the perfect destination for foodies, and although both are true in every sense, it was the city's unique history and traditions that captured my heart. The presence of Western meets Easter influences displayed through its architecture, urban sprawl and culture is a sight and experience to be reckon with. As a girl of Chinese decent who grew up in Canada, looking at Hong Kong felt like gazing through a mirror and the connection was very much real. In the shortest amount of time ever, I fell deeply in love with this fast-paced, densely-populated metropolis.
A sundate stroll down my favourite street in the city calls for an impromptu photo shoot in the famous Graffiti Alley with my girl, Monique. This colourful backstreet is the treasure of Queen Street West, which was recently named the second hippest district in the world by Vogue. Whether you agree with the magazine or not, it is definitely worth the visit if you ever happen to be in Toronto.

Forget all colours of the spectrum because b l a c k IS the new black, especially when it comes to lipstick hues. It's different from the conventional colour of choice but I'm never really conservative when it comes to style.
