Family Photo Shoot #3

Ed and I planned another family photo shoot towards the end of last year as we realized we didn't have any nice shots of us as a family of four! Our last photo shoot with Melanie was when Avery was still in the "oven" (just had a quick look back - man, I forgot how huge my belly was! God really helps you swiftly forget so you can continue to have kids... haha). Check out some of the highlights from our latest shoot below, photos by Thomas Ng

Life Lately w/ the Yeh Girls // Part I

It's been a busy month of traveling and birthdays! After returning from two trips in May (one for Ed's college reunions, hence the matching shirts on the kids), we threw a birthday party for Maddie early this month and celebrated mine with close friends last weekend. We also attended a farewell event for our alma mater's (HKIS) lower primary section, which is scheduled to start renovations soon - we feel quite connected to the school as Ed attended from 5th grade (I didn't attend until 11th grade at the Tai Tam campus), my mom was in the first class of HKIS when it was founded in the 60s, and my granddad had a part in the design of the upper primary campus, not to mention that Ed and I wouldn't have met if we hadn't been in the same class there! Don't ask me why Maddie had to hike her shirt up for the photo though, haha.

Look out for Part II tomorrow with Erin!

Welcome to 2014!

So many wonderful things have happened to our family in the past month! I had such an amazing end to 2013. My schedule was so jam packed with activities I didn't even have time to breathe! I got to go home for 2 weeks and reunite with my family and friends. It was short with every minute well spent. With my jet-lag, it was very difficult to find the energy to stay awake but I wanted to make the most of it, so I would drink lots of coffee, power through the day with the family, then take a 10 minute nap after dinner and meet up with my friends at night. 
There was so much laughter and happiness shared, many fruitful conversations, and always over great food! I often get a little homesick after I leave, but this time was special, and it's taking me awhile to adjust back to LA life. So.. without further delay, I'll let my sisters announce the great news :D

I couldn't agree more with what Court said, it was indeed an amazing and special holiday.  I originally expected it to be like all our other great Christmases  – the same fun parties, delicious family dinners, opening presents, but this year’s was definitely unique.  While the parties and celebrations remained the same, the dynamics have completely changed.  On Christmas day, we had the entire family in our living room opening presents - from our 90 year-old grandparents to Trish and Ed's new babies.  If you can't picture it, check out our little montage below for a glimpse into our day.  I think the highlight was watching Maddie spend at least half an hour opening and playing with each gift.  It was a nice change to have little ones around the tree.    

I was spoiled and received one too many great gifts, but nothing prepared me for the biggest of all – a proposal from my now fiance (still getting used to saying that word) Tim, my best friend of 14 years who has been there for me through most everything… even after I broke his heart in high school.  It was a "Yes" of course.

I am so grateful to have had such a lovely holiday surrounded by loved ones.  Hope ya'll had a good one too, and wishing you a fantastic 2014.

Lastly... WELCOME Avery and WELCOME Tim!

It's been a busy December at the Tsui household. We welcomed our newest member, Avery, to the family on December 4. She's proving to be quite the feisty one, which I should have seen coming considering how active she was in the womb! We also celebrated Ed's birthday with over 20 of our friends at our annual white elephant gift exchange/Christmas dinner (a rather competitive/intense affair), followed by a busy Christmas/new year season with family and friends. Last week, Ed and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary - he treated me to a relaxing spa treatment at Bliss and a decadent 8-course dinner at Gaddi's, probably one of the nicest restaurants I've been to in Hong Kong! What a huge blessing this season has been - thankful for what God has been doing in our lives, and wonderful family and friends. Looking forward to what 2014 holds!

Welcome to HEY YEH!

Hello and welcome to Hey Yeh! A lifestyle blog written by us three, the Yeh sisters from Hong Kong.  We love to share our passions including fashion, food, photography, dance and culture!
Hey Yeh has taken a small makeover and is now new and improved. Maybe we can start out with some introductions.

Hi! I'm Courtney, raised in Hong Kong, youngest of three, and currently residing in Los Angeles. A month before graduating college in the blizzards of New York, I decided (on an impulse) to move to sunny California to be closer to the arts and entertainment. Erin (my older sis) and I both work for Sony Pictures Entertainment selling movies globally. But the cool thing is... We're in the same department half way across the world. :) 
I started this blog back in college as a place where I can share my daily happenings with my family. Then it grew to become a blog where my friends enjoyed it when I posted about interesting finds of fashion, art, photography and design.  
LOVE to dance - mostly hip-hop and contemporary, sometimes a little African and a little Tap. I love the camera, whether it be photographs, videos, Polaroids, or even choosing filters on Instagram. I probably have around 15 different photo apps on my phone... I also really enjoy graphic design and continue to freelance part-time as a designer and artist.

Hi! I'm Erin, the middle sister (I'd like to point out that I somehow did not get middle child syndrome). I was born and raised in Hong Kong, followed by a brief stint of six years in Boston and New York, but ultimately deciding to make my way back home to be closer to the family. Yup, as Court said,  I also work at Sony Pictures and very much enjoy sharing Hollywood films  across Asia.
Hey Yeh was originally Courtney's blog, she later invited Trisha and I to join since both of us share her passion and appreciation for design and art.  Courtney felt that we could contribute interesting pieces of happenings on the other side of the world.  Among other things, I like to photograph culture, particularly images that capture the daily lives of people, the little things we walk by everyday that go unnoticed, and especially the quickly disappearing old architecture and details on the streets that make Hong Kong quintessentially Hong Kong.  On a side note, Courtney and I just became aunties a year ago to a ridiculously cute and beautiful niece, and my camera seems to have turned its focus to her... so, drop by and check her out ;)
I’m Trisha, the eldest of the Hey Yeh sisters, and I’ve been invited as a “guest blogger” to contribute occasionally to the blog. Though I did grow up with the Internet, I wouldn’t consider myself the most Internet savvy individual, so my experience with blogging is pretty much very limited to none… or maybe I’m just an old soul ;) Perhaps “guest blogger” was just a nice way for Courtney to say that I’m actually on a trial basis here. Haha :)
I’m a freelance writer based in Hong Kong, and do copywriting and translation work for a variety of clients, mostly in the fashion and lifestyle areas. I was a studio art major in college, so I love art, design, and photography, though I feel that all my photographic work of late consists mostly of iPhone snaps of my 1-year-old daughter, Madison. I look forward to exploring the world of blogging through this platform that Courtney has set up and rediscovering my creative side! 

Welcome to our little corner on the internet, made not only to stay close, but to share the things we love from two very different cities.
