At this rate it will be 2017 in a heartbeat. I am back in Hong Kong after a whirlwind trip to Holland. Every time I leave there I wonder how in heaven's name my country is so high on the list of densely populated nations, because this is all I ever see from the A2 highway on the way to the airport.
Holland, near Abcoude - just grass, trees and water.
Back in Hong Kong we walked around the city on a beautiful Easter Sunday and got ice cream at Lab Made in Tai Hang. If you are in the neighborhood, you must try it - it's absolutely delicious.
Tai Hang is such an interesting little neighborhood. Go on a sunny day and walk slowly around its jolie laide streets with some ice cream.

On Monday (we call it second Easter day in Holland) we walked around Wanchai, which is constantly changing. The tiny streets east of Star Street have beautiful little boutiques and interior design shops. Very much worth a visit as well - and a few blocks farther east the scene changes again completely - think fish guts in the street at the Wanchai wet market.
Jouer, a delicious pastry shop and interiors gallery - also a must visit, please click HERE to discover more. I love supporting beautiful independent shops like these.
The intriguing and attractive ugliness of the Wanchai wet market.
Fashion-wise it's been a great week, because for some mysterious reason it is still cold and relatively dry in Hong Kong. I have been embracing the classics this week with navy blazers and dark jeans, and stripy shirts from J.Crew. I love an all navy and stripes outfit with black and white accessories.
