A visit to the happiest place on earth

A visit to the happiest place on earth

You guessed it, I went to Disneyland! Was it the happiest place on earth? It sure comes pretty close! Honestly, what surprised me the most was how my favorite parts of the day was meeting the Disney characters – who am I kidding, one hug from Chip (or Dale) got...
Hong Kong, a montage

Hong Kong, a montage

Hey friends, Wonder where I went in Hong Kong these past few months? Watch this vlog filled with an excessive number of sea view clips to find out!   I thought i’d also take this opportunity to address the elephant in the room and talk about how Hong Kong...

nom noms in Hong Kong

Did someone say food? …Oh right, I did! Hope you enjoy this video that made me extremely hungry while I was editing. Unfortunately I didn’t get the chance to try very local Hong Kong style food due my abrupt return to New Zealand (blog to come 😉), its more...
A (late) halloween story

A (late) halloween story

Hey guys, So, it’s been a while since story time with Cecilia, but in the spirit of Halloween (apologies, this was written on Halloween, but I forgot to post 😅), I’ve got a slightly squeamish, slightly scary story in store for you. It’s got a happy ending, though so...
Far from home

Far from home

Before starting my exchange, both UoA and HKU made a big presentation about culture shock, homesickness and adapting to the new environment. At the time I really didn’t think these things would affect me, and for the most part I guess didn’t, but it’s because I...

Language

Theory: People are much nicer if you speak to them in their native language. I’m not sure if there’s any scientific evidence behind this, but if my experience in Hong Kong counts as an experiment, I’d vouch for it 😉. Some background: the main languages spoken in Hong...

Day trip to Shenzhen

Day trip to Shenzhen

Hey guys, So a few weeks ago some friends and I went to Shenzhen for a day trip as its quite close to Hong Kong (around 2 hours by MTR, costing approx 90 HKD return). I tried to do it vlog style. Lets just say I ended up with heaps of shaky and unusable footage paired...
Things I miss about New Zealand

Things I miss about New Zealand

Apologies for the extreme lack of updates as I have been away having fun and not missing Auckland at all 🤪 Jokes (…🤫)! Seriously though, I’ve been having an absolute blast in Hong Kong, in some way it feels like school camp (just not in the woods and, I’m gone...
First week in Hong Kong!

First week in Hong Kong!

So, its 2:00pm right now and I’m sitting in my room with a bowl of half-finished oatmeal by my side listening to the typhoon rage outside my window. Not exactly the picture of exchange I had in mind. It’s been about a week into my time in Hong Kong, I thought I’d do a...
