Robin Buss

Robin Buss is a 19-year-old (B&M Models) who recently arrived in Hong Kong to start her international career. The 176 cm (5'9") model is in Asia for the first time in her life and has kindly agreed to provide modelresource readers with occassional updates on her experience.

Another busy day, another busy week. As soon as I stepped into the charging flow of Hong Kong, it really swept me away! Life here is great. During the day I have jobs that are fun and easy, during the night it's social city. And somehow every day is still a unique experience unto itself!

The other day I played basketball in Victoria Park, that was a fun challenge! The courts are not only 98% Asian, but until I joined a game, they were 100% male. Some friends of mine, both from L.A. actually, invited me to come play with them. So I strapped on my runners and shuffled timidly on the court. I got a lot of raised eyebrows, but after a couple minutes of practice (I would have preferred days! Its been so long!) we launched into a highly competative game. It was so much fun! My guys set me up for a lot of shots, and I really appreciated them giving me the benefit of the doubt there. We won all three games. It felt so good to ball.

My Dad left Hong Kong last week, so we ended a wonderful trip together. We saw many sites, including the Peak at dusk, Ocean Park (a fun, themed park with a great aquarium), the Buddha on Lantau island (it was extraordinarliy majestic)... we did shopping in Mong Kok, we found some great vegetarian restaurants in Tsim Sha Stui, Kowloon, as well as on the island, and last but not least, we saw some great movies. Dad in Hong Kong, what a great time we had.

Work has been a little light, I did a property promo yesterday, which as any model knows, is easy work. Just smile and great people as they inspect the imacculately set up rooms. Besides some castings, I also decided to participate in a charity fashion show being put on by the Department of Justice, which should be interesting. The clothes we are wearing were all designed and made by convicts who are trying to move their lives in a new direction. I was impressed by how lovely the clothes are!

Gosh, have I even told you about Halloween? It's really been that long! Halloween was a blast, I have to tell you. Dragon-i had a wig party, which was insane! I arrived to a sea of bopping pinks and whites and blacks and reds, fros and dreads, curls, long blond manes and one black braids... Halloween in Hong Kong is too good to miss! I purchased a surprisingly fitting afro in a light brown, and went as a cop from the 70s. Afro, stilettoes, mini skirt and guns! It was a blast.

Well, my time here is starting to come to a close. I have already been here for two and a half months, and I can feel the inevitable end drawing slowly near. This trip has been so amazing, I love being here. I've talked to a lot of people, models and others, and we all agree: there is something magical about this place. Hong Kong exists in some sort of fairy tale bubble, it almost doesn't feel real. There always seems to be available good food, good company, parties, festivities. All played out to the music of thousands of hearts beating on this beautiful overflowing mountain of human residance and lush green.

You've got to see it to believe it. And if you have the opportunity to come here, take it! Honestly, I'm already thinking about when I want to come back! Ho wan! (good luck!)
