Tis the season – no, actually The Day itself – so we thought we’d take a quick break from the back log of blogging all the amazing places we’ve been in the last few months and slip in a big, fat waterfallsandcaribous MERRY CHRISTMAS to you all!
A quick bolt between IKEA and the flash supermarket in Causeway Bay, Hong Kong, tonight found us bang smack in the middle of the cool Lego Christmas display outside Times Square. We’ve been admiring it for weeks but what better time for an imprompu photo shoot than Christmas Eve!Dan even had a bit of time to freak out the locals – what’s new, eh?!
The crowds are pretty nuts in Hong Kong, so naturally, we’re absolutely loving the change of pace from the sleepy village. City life suits us. In the midst of moving into our gorgeous new apartment, a Christmas tree was top priority. Taking a photo of the wee fella tonight, we were impressed that our the super white walls of our modern pad gave the tree a pretty magazine style setting. Sweet! Please note the Christmas pudding ornaments (an H-J splurge that cost exactly TEN times the amount of the tree) and the Christmas Caribou! Woohoo. We so theme.
A new apartment, you say? Here’s a sneak peek at what’s very much a work in progress. See the lovely Louis Vuitton box…hmmm, sadly only used for packing some lovely glassware out of someone else’s multi million dollar HK apartment but yeah, potentially the closest we’ll ever get.
A quick glimpse of the carnage that is our living room at the moment. The couch has become a calm spot due to the blinging fact that it has lazy boy chairs at each end…pimp! In true ‘us’ style, the first thing that was totally finished and decked out was the kitchen, notably, the coffee gears and the fridge magnets.
Um…well, actually that’s the only thing that’s complete so far! We are getting there though – guest number one arrives in less than a week (YAY!) and we’re amped for more thanks to the very un-Hong Kong like aspect of our apartment, space and a decent second bedroom!
So wherever you are in the world, we hope you’re happy, healthy and full of great food. Or at least intending to be. We used the lovely City Super voucher gifted to us by our boss at the staff Christmas party to stock up on a fridge full of gorgeous cheese (was five different types excessive?!), olives, rocket, New Zealand salmon, New Zealand lamb, middle bacon, ginger beer…basically all the things we felt deprived on in rural Korea that are now scarily available to us again. Bliss!
From us guys to you all…
FROM H-J and DAN!
