Learning Cantonese & Eat More Pineapple Bun - The Hong Kong Adventures

Hong Kong is indeed a city to visit once in a lifetime. The vibe in Hong Kong are a mix of traditional and new cultures.  You have the awesome eateries in Mong Kok (get the roast duck and pineapple bun), great shopping deals in Shum Shui Po, bars and nightlife in Hong Kong Island.  This city has it all! I hope to return to Hong Kong someday. 

Eason's Baby Portraits

I was in Hong Kong this Spring and I got a chance to visit my good friend Meiling who recently gave birth to a baby boy Eason and is now a happy and proud mama. In the Chinese tradition, mothers who just gave birth are recommended to stay indoor to recover, eat ginger-vinegar braised egg and pork 豬腳薑醋 for nourishment, which in my case I was unable to meet the parents and baby outdoor for a portrait shoot.  Eventually I got to visit the family in their lovely apartment home and when it was time to bust out my camera I find baby Eason sleeping soundly. Without waking him up, I took few snapshots while he dozes off and then mama comes in and snuck a few props for enjoyment, hence I named the dolls "Eason's 5 Plushy Guardians".  He eventually woke up and immediately fell back to sleep...this occurred THREE TIMES! "Baby the day is young! Let Uncle Wooolis take some photos of you smiling, crying and laughing," I said. He did not comply. Eventually Eason was being fed by papa and mama, after a quick burping session, food coma kicks in and back to sleep he went.  Needless to say what you see in the gallery is why it's all sleepy photos of him.  The next time I visit Baby Eason, I hope he can schedule his nap ahead of time so we can take some selfies together instead.
