hong kong beat.

Once again, it’s been a long, long time since I’ve lasted posted content on here.

When you work full time and try to manage a social life abroad, it can be hard to summon the motivation and energy to put together some content and sit in front of the Macbook to articulate it.

However, the past couple of weeks have been productive as I have edited some pictures and put together another video postcard.

Just last month, I took a solo trip over to Hong Kong and stayed for four days and four nights. I was there partly for an ultimate frisbee tournament and, partly for visa renewal purposes and of course to see the archipelago and give my weakened Cantonese skills a much-needed boost of practice.

This trip was a very nice opportunity to spend a few days by myself just shooting pictures and video to satisfy my photography/videography needs that I haven’t been able to do much of due to the amount of work I usually have going on.

Hong Kong is often remarked as “just another big city” – but it’s a pretty exciting city nonetheless. Towering skyscrapers, a saturated market for fancy wrist watches (real or fake), and a heightened sense of commercialism characterizes the former British territory. The people are genuine and the dim sum is above everything else you’ve ever tasted.

Here’s the video postcard of my trip. Hopefully, it’ll give you all a taste of my impressions of the city better than I can articulate at the moment. Enjoy!
