Pilot Episode / by Jessica Lee

It's much colder here than I thought it would be.

And this is coming from a Canadian who has lived in cold weather her whole life.

Currently, I'm in Hong Kong visiting my relatives. In about two weeks, I'll be in Sydney, Australia, settling down before starting a semester there to complete some of my university degree in Psychology.

I haven't done much in Hong Kong yet because I pretty much just got off the plane last night, but here are a few things I've noticed so far:

1. Both the water and the milk here in Hong Kong taste different. The water has a bit more of a chlorinated taste and the milk is richer, much creamier- but not like table cream back home. I don't know how else to describe it.

2. I encountered my vice as soon I stepped off the plane: shopping. Oh my. I've been to Hong Kong a few times in my life and I only remember this place as a shopping heaven. There are just shops and shops and department stores and from my apartment, I already can spot a store that I loved the last time I was here.

This time though, I've bought a guidebook here with me and I'm determined to explore- and not just the shopping malls.

I plan to take photos, eat my heart out, and blog about it.

I hope you'll stick around and read!
