It has been truly glorious in Hong Kong. Clear blue skies, soft breeze, sunshine permeates the colourful day to day bustle of this island city. Now that I've been here for a month and a half, I look around and see how comfortable I am here. I know my way around, I have a good sense of the people, and with so much going on, so much is possible!

There is something I've been waiting for, something that I always thought of as a mark of achievement, and it has finally come true! When I was walking down Lan Kwi Fung with my Dad, I looked up a street and saw a picture of someone I recognized - me! After weeks of seeing my friends here in ads all over the city, I know have my very own two story billboard of... my back, but still! I love it! Dad was so happy for me, he was so proud. It was a really good moment to share with dear old Dad. Now I am meditating on getting a beauty ad, just 'cause it would kind of nice to see my face!

I had my first job in China on Friday. Shenzhen is an hour train ride south of Hong Kong, and you have to pass through customs to enter. It was a long day, they work you really hard over there. We were shooting a catalogue, and in the 6 hours I worked, I literally had 30 to 50 outfits. It was gruelling work. I felt like I was part of a production line of clothes! Some of the people I worked with didn't speak any English, but just like math, Fashion is an international language. It was funny, the Art Director and I said maybe two words to each other the whole time, and yet we perfectly understood each other. I really feel like this experience has proven to me that people, no matter their background, are not that different. I felt very pleased that language does not have to be a barrier.
