Instagram Life

We had more perfect weather for the long weekend in Hong Kong. A weekend full of poolside and seaside activities which should be accompanied by Valentino espadrilles, St Barth's style caftans, gold jewelry, and neon bikinis, right? But that's never the case in real life, even in some of the very glam places I found myself this weekend in Hong Kong. I saw lots flip flops and shorts, T-shirts and no jewelry other than the occasional waterproof watch.

Lab Made, an ice cream shop on Brown Street in Tai Hang where they freeze the cream with liquid nitrogen. PS do not have the Bean Curd flavor, but the Crispy Toast ice cream was incomparably delicious.

Friends took us to Tai Hang for dinner and dessert, a small neighborhood just past Causeway Bay with loads of tiny independent restaurants and coffee shops. Do check it out, this is still a lovely unspoiled little place.
