One Month Break in Hong Kong
For the entire month of October, I went back to Hong Kong, my lovely lovely birthplace.
Aside from all the wonderful gatherings with friends and family, I spent most of my time –– as usual –– at the local library and bookstores.
Some of the best things I love about the Hong Kong bookstores include:
- I get to catch up on a lot of Chinese books.
- I get to read books published in the UK.
- HK has a great selection of international picture books.
- Most of the American books are imported from the UK, so I get to see the UK covers and marvel upon a different approach on book cover designs.
I once told a good friend my version of heaven involves sitting on a puffy cloud under a warm beam of yellow light as I read and draw all day and night without ever feeling tired. :)
Family + friends + books + drawing time. I was in heaven!
