A weekend in Hong Kong

Our first weekend in HK was a leetle beet bonkers I must admit.  We were taken out and shown the city by some friends – my jaw was pretty much resting on the floor for the entire time.

First up was the bar, Sevva, with possibly the best views over the city of anywhere:

Gorgeous terrace, modern design:

And a bloody great big chandie to boot!

And the following night we were treated to a wonderful dinner at Lily & Bloom, a new up and comer in Central.  I became slightly enamoured with the industrial chic vibe of the place:

AMAZING oysters too, amongst the best we’ve ever eaten – you must check it out if you’re ever in Honkers.

I couldn’t get this series of West Elm’s pendants out of my head for the duration of the evening – LOVE:

Alrighty, over and out for now.  It’s my birthday today and we’re heading out to do some exploring – more piccies on the way soon!

    Happy Birthday Elly enjoy x
    We spent our 25th wedding anniversary in HK a month with friends who were working out there, loved it, although I hate cities, but HK is so different. Hope you both get jobs & can live there. Take care both xx

    Bonkers in Honkers… Those views are amazing, the interiors amazing, there’s so much to see in HK. Is the weather good there at the mo? I’d kill for a relaxing drink in an open air bar with the warmth on my skin x

      Erm…the weather is ok now yep but has been pretty crappo for a week or so which was a bit depressing – not what we signed up for! I agree about there being so much to see – you could live here for years and years and still not experience everything!

    OmG Elly! Those places are unbelievable! Do you think everywhere is as glam as that? Those terraces! Oh how I’d love to sit on one of those drinking a mai tai 🙂 I’m so envious!

    • Elly says:

      Yeh, the terraces are for sure the highlight, very nice indeed. Nope, not everywhere’s like that at all actually – it’s a regular occurrence to be leaving a cool bar/resto like these ones, then glance down a side street next door and see chicken feet or dried up sea slugs in a shop, Totally random, but I love it!
