Office ArtJam

Last Thursday night I organised for my colleagues to participate in an office ArtJam session !!

We have recently expanded our office and the idea was to create some pieces of art to display in the "Club". The results were fab, and I am sure the office will be very bright and cheery once we have hung the masterpieces!!

Happy 18th Birthday Little Sis

Yesterday was our little sis' Ebonys 18th birthday!!

I can't believe that it was 18 years ago that I was in Year 5 and mum announced I was going to have a baby brother or sister!!

Now she is a young adult - and a beautiful one at that!! How fast time flies...

We are so proud of her and her achievements - she is such a gentle and caring soul - and a sister and friend that anyone would be happy to have as their own. She is the calm in the storm (well, I may have seen her create a couple of little storms in her life - but only a couple:) and the confident you want when you need an ear. She is loyal, ambitious and of course absolutely drop dead gorgeous!! She has her life ahead of her and with these qualities - what a life that will be!!

Happy Birthday sweetheart

2008 Olympics

On Sunday night we were lucky enough to get tickets to the show jumping at the 2008 Olympics in Hong Kong. It was such a great experience being able to attend the event and take part in the festivities.

A day on the water

Last Sunday we went out on Nicholas' boat for a day on the ocean. The weather was absolutely perfect ... and a good day was had by all :)

Saf taking the plunge...


Last Friday night a group of us went to Aqua for pre-dinner cocktails and then on to Hutong for dinner.

The food was amazing (as always), the view spectacular, and the company - lovely...

Saf daring to take a bite (he chickened out)

Stuart with his ducks beak :)

Zoe's dessert - mmmm ????


On Tuesday the 5th of August we hosted bookclub at our house. Will was the honorary male amongst 7 women (half his luck!!). This months book was "Mao's Last Dancer" by Li Cunxin.

Those that read it (yeap that's right, a bookclub where reading the book isn't essential) quite enjoyed it.

Next book is "Mister Pip"!!

Saffron's Birthday - Junk trip

Yesterday we went on a Jaspas Junk trip to Tai Long Wan to celebrate Saf's birthday (which is actually today) - Happy Birthday Saf!!!

It was the most beautiful day, and we all ended up very sunburnt and sore - but feeling very content after a great day out in the sun, surf and sand. Gotta love Hong Kong summers...
