Yesterday’s lunch date @ Lil’ Baci (Peri’s work). Is it wrong to dream about food? Still dreaming about that meatball sandwich. Good LORD, twas a good meat-a-ball.
Dutch Artist Florentijn Hofman’s Duck Visits Hong Kong
Since the beginning of May, Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman’s 16-meter (52-foot) rubber duck has turned Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour into a giant bathtub. Instagrammers there have captured the giant duck’s daily travels about the harbor and were on hand to photograph its deflation in mid-May (part of scheduled maintenance work according to the exhibition organizers).
The giant rubber ducky has been touring the globe since 2007, making appearances in Osaka, Sydney, Sao Paulo, and Amsterdam before coming to Hong Kong. The artist hopes the work will make people feel young again, bring them together and encourage a connection with public art. The duck will leave Hong Kong on June 9 and heads to the United States next.
Hello Hong Kong.

Fact: I am the world’s worst travel blogger, in the sense that I don’t get around to it..ever.
Don’t get me wrong, I THINK about it. There are way too many times to count in which I have thought to myself; ”Wow this is like, the best day of my entire life…maybe I should write this down somewhere with my thoughts and feelings and reflections at this very moment so others will know every detail of how amazing my life is, and also so future me can envy current me and now maybe I can ALSO finally part with all those receipts and bus tickets i’ve been hoarding in my backpack as memory-joggers”. Motivating right? but it never happens.
Lucky for me, ABC took the liberty of chronicling my adventures FOR me on this season of the bachelor.

I posted this in Nov 2011 of my top 50 places I want to travel to. I didn’t really set a time line…which I should have, but regardless I think I’ve made some decent progress.
It is Jan 1st 2013 and I’ve knocked off:
#3 Istanbul, Turkey
#9 Budapest, Hungary
#27 Auckland, New Zealand (well…technically not yet..but ALMOST)
#28 Amsterdam, The Netherlands
#30 Sydney, Australia
5 down, 45 to go. I think I’ll set a lofty goal of getting them all in by the time I hit my next ‘IamsoOLD’ moment: age 30….then I’ll make a new list. Hows that for #progress ? eh? EH?
