Gung Hay Fat Choy!

“Gung Hay Fat Choy!”  That’s me attempting to wish you a happy Chinese new year in Cantonese.  At one point in my life, I spoke Mandarin, but never Cantonese, the dialect spoken in Hong Kong.

Because I’m feeling inspired, here are some pictures from Hong Kong taken when I was there shortly after Chinese New Year in 2009.  Normally I’m not much of a big city person (maybe I got enough of it growing up near Los Angeles), but I love Hong Kong (at least for a visit).

One of the things that I really enjoyed about Hong Kong was the contrast between the traditional and the modern.

  1. Hej Lani, det var ett tag sedan. Hoppas allt är bra med dig och att ditt företag går åt rätt håll. Jag gillar din blogg med alla vackra bilder och lite diskret text.
    Kram Jenny
