Floral on floral

tank top from uniqlo, white jeans from zara, desert boots from zara

Obviously, this is a long overdue post. I have been in the States for over a month and these pictures were taken in Hong Kong! It is now October. I guess you can still dress like this in Hong Kong but not for me in Minnesota... I realized that I couldn't delay this post anymore because Hong Kong will also get cool soon (perhaps?!, probably not yet actually). 

It is windy and cool here now. I enjoyed the fall. For the first time, fall is about falling leaves; fall is about kicking the fallen leaves as you walk... Fall was never a thing in Hong Kong. haha. I usually felt it was summer even when the mid-autumn festival had passed. When I realized that it was cold, it was winter already. 

Now, I can say that I experienced autumn and I love it.

I chose the pictures and saved them here as draft when I first arrived in the States.  (A day when I spent only on the hotel's bed  because I was so sick after eating so much good food in countless farewells in a row). After working breathlessly for weeks, it is finally my mid term break. It is a weird feeling to be able to breathe. There is a hole in my life... I know it is time for me to blog... haha

Cappadocia is my favorite place in my Turkey trip. The landscape is gorgeous. The souvenirs there were also the cheapest! (GREAT!) Hot air balloon ride was an amazing experience. That was my first time to wake at 3 am in the morning. Well  worth my sacrifice of sleep for the stunning views.

People must bear the heat and be willing to walk A LOT in order to explore Cappadocia. You must not have height fright so that you can climb to the very tip of the lanscape to see the best view and to take the best picture! I am now very good at climbing rough lanscapes. haha.
