Hong Kong 2018

I have recently been on holiday in Japan. On our way we got a free stopover in Hong Kong. The last time we were in Hong Kong was before it was returned to China. We didn't see much change except the usual development of the crowded city.  Hong Kong was the first overseas city I went to, so it was interesting and sentimental for me. We stayed on Kowloon side which was vibrant and lively, specially in the evening. We had street food where the locals hang-out. 

We did the usual sight seeing, museum and a few galleries. We love trecking into the back street areas, soaking the atmosphere of the city. We went to where we used to visit years ago - Stanley Village. We had to travel over an hour by local bus to the other side of Hong Kong island. Stanley Village wasn't how we remembered it. The old fishing village is now as touristy as you can imagine. It was so disappointing, but the bus ride was fun. 

A friend who used to lived in Hong Kong told me to visit Mountain Folkcraft shop in the heart of Hong Kong. We tracked it down with the help of Google map. It's a shop you can easily spend a whole day in.

Then I found the Sham Shui Po market. It's full of fabric and sewing supplies where local tailors and dressmakers shop! It's mostly an outdoor and pavement market. You can buy beads and sequins by weight and sewing pins by the thousand. It was such fun strolling along and just looking. Mostly just looking!

As usual I always take some stitching projects to work on during my holiday. It's the best way to pass the time while waiting. I even stitched on the 9-hour plane ride. In Hong Kong I stitched a roll using eco-dyed and scrap vintage Japanese fabric. 





In Japan I did boro stitching using vintage indigo fabric. I will share all of them once I tidy them up a bit. 

When I returned I got the flu and wasn't feeling well for a couple of weeks. Even though I was back at work, mentally I didn't feel that good. I was tired and didn't have energy. I was feeling low in general. I'm glad to report that I'm back to my old self again. I picked up sewing and started creating again. I've also gone back to the gym. Keeping myself fit is the key.

On my next post I will write about our time in Kyoto and the Kyoto Toji outdoor market. I won't leave it too long in between posts this time.

Until next time
Nat

Glad to have you back blogging. You always see the most unusual places .
When will you be moving? Are you going to build a house? It must be sad to leave your beautiful studio----but you can always build another one.
I am enjoying working on the samples for Sue Stone's class. It really opens up incredible possibilities that I haven't even thought of--with such simple stitches. Janet Wright

Great post Nat. I love Hong Kong more than ever. I will have to note down those places.
And thank you for blogging...
I think I am going to go back to blogging. I am so sick of Ig and the way everything is shuffled so i don't see the most recent posts and then I miss things NOT to mention all the ads.
Hopefully I will see you soon somewhere.

Hello friends,

I really came hear to share my testimony on how i became an Illuminati member, through my friend.
i was moving with him for more than 5 years and he has been getting rich everyday and even giving
me money but he never told me the secret of his success until a day i was frustrated to let him know that
he should help me out when he open up to me and told me that he was a member of the Illuminati, that he has been in the cult
for more than 8 years that his riches and protection came from them. i asked him to guide me into the cult which is not an
easy task but he did and i was finally initiated into the family of the Illuminati and i was confirmed in there church.
After a month of being a member of Illuminati i got a promotion that same month at my working place and within a year
i was promoted twice to the point of being a managing Director. i don't know how to thank him and the church of Illuminati
and today am rich as my friend. So i just want to share to the world that Illuminati is for real and Are you a Pastor, Politician, Business man or woman, Musician
or an Artist,the church. So if you want to become a member i can lead you into the cult of Money, Fame and Power and you will never be poor again, Remember money is power.
know that only a member in the Illuminati can initiate you into the church of Illuminati they do not contact directly that is the rule that guide the church.
because they're a lot of fake Illuminati agents all over the world, Here are the correct contact details of the right person to help you.

Good day, I'm John Luguard from Canada based in United State "Texas
". I'm one of the members from the Great Freemasonry Illuminati
Brotherhood, today am Here to share my testimony of how I got
initiated by Mr. Aydin Baris, and am so happy I got back from My
Awarding ceremony and a big thanks to Mr. Baris for His help, This is
how it's all started, I have be trying to become one of the
brotherhood for over 3 years but I keept falling in the hands of
scammers which took over $4000 USD but I was really confused until I
saw testimonies of Mrs. Theresa Matthew from Texas, Mr. Mike from
South Africa and Mr. Albert from Zambia on facebook and I asked them
how they joined the brotherhood with success cause I saw the
testimonies they all shared ,and Mrs. Theresa Matthew directed me to
Mr. Baris, so I chatted with Mr. Baris on WhatsApp and Imo so he told
me a lot more about the brotherhood and he told me I need to be
initiated before I can become rich and He told me they will need some
requirement for my initiation because initiation into the brotherhood
don't involve human blood sacrifices, I paid to the Lord Temple Mater
which is the seller, honestly I was afraid if am not in the wrong hand
again, after 2days of initiation my account was verified it's was all
like a dream comes true, for so many years of trying I got a benefit
of $6 million USD, while after 3 months of me been a member I was
invited for the awarding ceremony in Texas USA where a brand new car
and a new house in Australia was given to me as a new member. My dear
friends believe me the great freemasonry illuminati brotherhood is
real, I'm a living testimony but be careful not all are real the only
Agent who can help you successful is Mr. Baris contact him on his cell
phone number whatsapp/imo +2347052886592.
You can as well contact me on whatsapp/imo for more details +16106342059

When I found Dr. ABAKA I was in desperate need of bringing my ex lover back. He left me for another woman. It happened so fast and I had no say in the situation at all. He just dumped me after 3 years with no explanation. I contact Dr.ABAKA through his website and He told me me what i need to do before he can help me and i did what he told me to, after i provided what he wanted, he cast a love spell to help us get back together. Shortly after he did his spell, my boyfriend started texting me again and felt horrible for what he just put me through. He said that I was the most important person in his life and he knows that now. We moved in together and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than before. Ever since Dr. ABAKA helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before. I highly recommends Dr. ABAKA to anyone in need of help.
