Seeking More Than Ordinary

     Today has been an ordinary day. I ate, I drank, I wrote, I read, I watched TV, I ran errands. A perfectly ordinary day, where nothing bad has happened to me. Which is a good thing, right? Ordinary is good, is safe, is secure. But what if ordinary isn't enough?

     Don't get me wrong, an ordinary life can be a wonderful life. A life with good health, a comfortable living, and loved ones around you sounds pretty fantastic, when you remember that there's plenty of people in the wold who aren't lucky enough to have all those things.

Hong Kong Flower Festival

     I love it when an event comes to town! As I've proven recently, there's still plenty more areas of Hong Kong I haven't explored in my time here so far, but when there's some sort of event or festival happening, and it may be my only chance to see it, it makes living and traveling abroad even more interesting. For the last week, Victoria Park (near Causeway Bay) has played host to the Hong Kong Flower Festival. I heard about it by chance, when a co-worker mentioned it, then I noticed a few adverts in the MTR and such. It perhaps isn't something I would instantly jump to - like last year, when the Udderbelly rolled into town and I HAD to go - but I figured it could be nice, so why not? Warning, this is a very photo-heavy post, because it was all so, so pretty!

Outfit - Night On The Town

     So this was my outfit of choice for my birthday night out the other week. I'm obsessed with these leather shorts, but I don't wear them all that often, since they're quite dressed up, and definitely strictly party wear, and sometimes nights out are more casual than that. My birthday was definitely an occasion to get dressed up though, and I just think the shorts look great, and are super comfortable too. I only have a couple of tops I usually pair them with - see another outfit with them here - but this top is a more recent purchase, which, I was happy to discover, works really well with this combination. Sometimes I wear flats for going out, especially for dancing, but I've gotten more comfortable in heels than I used to be, so figured I'd go for it.

NB: Excuse the lighting etc, I only had one day free to take photos this week and it was raining, so I decided to experiment with shooting in my room, or else I'd have been skipping today entirely.
