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

For Erin and Tim's wedding, we decided to put together cute DIY wedding favors. They had previously bought mini baskets from Thailand, and all we needed was a touch of colorful ribbon. Of course, there's no place better to get it than Sham Shui Po! If you've never been before, it can be very confusing and overwhelming! So we wanted to share with you how to navigate through these crowded streets of SSP, and some of the stores that we went into! And if you're just visiting Hong Kong, this is a pretty neat area to walk around too! 

If you are going by MTR, you can exit through A2. Walk down Apliu St - an electronics market, and the ribbon stores will start at the intersection of Apliu St and Nam Cheong St. You will find ribbon stores after another. Stores are usually open between 11am - 6 pm. They are NOT open on Sundays (we made that mistake a few times).
Each store has its own unique set of ribbons, and you may not be able to find the same exact type throughout the street. One important tip is that, if you want a large amount of the same kind, you can pre-order from them! It's best to have a sample of what you want so you can save time browsing their ceiling to floor collection.
We stopped at a few stores, but bought most of our ribbons from Sang Hing Ho Webbing & Dyeing  (128 Nam Cheong St).

lets get coffee

I spent a wonderful 4 weeks in Hong Kong, mostly working at the Sony office and planning Erin's wedding by night. But I am really happy that I got to see my old childhood friends, explore a few of the new restaurants and art spaces, eat a lot of good Chinese food and best of all catching up with my family. During our sister's speech at Erin's wedding, I said that the Yeh sister's have a very special relationship and I couldn't believe this more! I don't know any three other girls that get along, share similar passions and love each other as much as we do.. :)

Leaving HK is always tough, especially when my family makes it so much fun. Good thing I'll be back in a month for Christmas!

Hipster Baby

Maddie has developed a new obsession with anything glasses so I gave her my lens-less frames to play with - not sure why she loves them so much since both Ed and I wear contacts so she doesn't see us in glasses very often. In any case, I think she definitely looks better than me in those tortoise shell frames! Unfortunately the red sunglasses were swiftly broken by Avery about an hour after I took these photos!

How to dress for fall...

I would like to welcome FALL, my favorite season.  The Mid-Autumn Festival in Hong Kong is what marks the beginning of autumn for me.  Aside from enjoying the full moon while eating moon cakes and other moon cake-shaped desserts, I look forward to the weather finally cooling down.  The best part about weather change is fashion change, and fall clothing is definitely my favorite. It's comfortable, cozy and stylish! I no longer have to freeze when I go indoors and over heat when I walk outside.  Hong Kong'ers can all finally wear one outfit and stick with that look throughout the day :) I think every HK female knows what's I'm talking about.  Let's see what's trending on pinterest this autumn season.

Loose-fitted comfy tops
Hint of plaid
Floral tops and floral pants
Fitted ankle-length pants
Pointy pumps and ankle boots (even for kids!)
(Rose) gold bangles and watches
Denim button downs
