Hong Kong

the return of the rebellious rat

first selfie

25th January 2020 is Chinese New Year. The year of the rat. An auspicious year for anyone born on or after 25th, and those who are 12 24 36 48 60 72 84 96 108 or 120 (unlikely, but who knows?)

So it is my big year. Not sure how it can get much bigger than last year but I’m so happy to be back in HK, with my fast track immigration permanent resident status. Moments before this selfie I have already been told off twice! before even getting through. Once for wearing my hat, on the moving walkway, and secondly for taking a picture of the Hong Kong permanent residents entry lanes.

but we rats are a resilient bunch. and with a hop skip and a jump, and a thumbprint verification, I’m officially in and still smiling.

Looking for my long lost family in Hong Kong
And previously....
Fell in love with coastal living 5 years ago. And moved to stunning St Ives. A place to create and grow and flourish. Got me a home and a job. And never looked back. Everyone talks and writes about the famous dead people of St Ives. Virginia and Alfred and Ben and Barbara and Peter and Wilhelmina. Well I thought I’d introduce you to some very nice folk, and they’re all very much alive and make St Ives a much the better town for it.
