Why hello there, it's been a while! We have now returned from balmy Asia to full-on autumn in the UK, but I still have lots of pictures from Hong Kong and Tokyo on my mobile phone. Yes, even though we brought our "proper" camera along to take good pictures of the nephew, for instance, we ended up not using it once! It was just so hot, and I was carrying so much (water, jacket for aircon, plasters for feet - or wait, I'm supposed to call them band-aids), or we would just forget. So I have to apologise for the dreadful quality of my photos here!
These pictures were taken in one of the subways near Hong Kong harbour - because of the Taifun warning, we ended up doing it down there, because above ground, stuff was blowing around like crazy. I mean, it's not like cars got picked up and flung around like confetti - I wouldn't be grinning like that it they were! - but I did get hit in the leg by a really large piece of styrofoam, and that stung. Also, we watched in disbelief as someone's shirt that they were hanging outside the window to dry - everybody does this in Hong Kong, in spite of the pollution - got blown off, coathanger and all, and ended up several feet down the street.

Now then, check out my amazing Albert Einstein blowout, you guys! Would you believe I did that all by myself, without so much as a mirror?! Yeah, I guess you would, huh. I almost didn't post these, but then I thought, why not make this post a kind of two-for-one deal since the picture quality is a bit rubbish? I also loved this outfit too much to not want to document it. I got this blazer at Bossini, and a couple of other things, including some amazing floral jeans... and these shoes, they were on sale at a store we randomly walked past. I had been looking for exactly that shade of neon blue flats for years, so that was a pretty neat find!
As for this mascot, I have no idea what on Earth it supposed to be. But it was in the lobby of a somewhat dodgy Japanese restaurant we went to on our last night in Hong Kong, and I couldn't resist the urge to pose with it. And pretend to kiss it, because this thing wasn't exactly squeaky clean.
