The Local

(top from tout a coup, pants from jeanasis, platform shoes from Cordeleria, in Madrid, Spain, earrings from Camden Market in London, bag from Jill Scott, necklace from mimosa)

Obviously, I am back in Hong Kong! Many friends have been asking me what I have been up to in Hong Kong. "How's life in Hong Kong?" Honestly, nothing much. Usually, a day passes without knowing how. I spend most of the day in front of my computer, educating myself about the Hong Kong music industry, jazz scenes in Hong Kong, fashion trends, beauty techniques... Haha! This is a very nice way to package what I have doing every day. Basically, I have been surfing the web... 

This sounds like the very familiar good-old-days of Agnes. (Friends in the States might be surprised...)Yeah, Agnes would surf on the web too...Indeed, this is drastically different from my life in the States. My life has reached to the maximum capacity in my senior year; I barely had time to sit down and take a break within the day. Sometimes I don't understand how I can sleep so much now. Sometimes I wonder if I am not being productive this summer. Sometimes I tell myself-- I deserve a break.

Chilling at home is the most comfortable thing. My outfit at home has been limited to all kinds of Carleton swags. I have not noticed how much school pride I have.

Other news, I did a youtube cover earlier. I would describe covering such song as a "guilty pleasure". It admittedly isn't the most challenging song, hence probably wouldn't be a song people usually cover. Yet, it has a groove that stuck in my head. I also enjoyed looking into the camera pretending to be innocent... hahaha

Next, I have started a Facebook fan page sharing my culinary adventure. As you may know (or not know), I have a strong passion for cooking. Especially during this last year, when I lived in a college townhouse with its own kitchen, I have experimented with many exciting dishes. In response to my mom's feedback, I started the fan page to share my culinary experience in a more organized fashion.

Finally- speaking of fashion/ fashion blogging

It has been considerably harder to take pictures for blogging now. My mom's and my availability simply don't match. Hence, many of my back-in-hong kong outfits which I would love to share were not photographed. 

As always, I recognize that I dress in different styles depending on the environment. The hottest items in Hong Kong right now are definitely off-the-shoulder tops and loose pants. I got my top in spring.  I have been matching the top with skinny jeans in the States, but yesterday, I got a sudden inspiration to match it up with my newly purchased loose pants. Guess it worked out well? :P
