Learning German in Hong Kong

Deutsch ist meine dritte Sprache. German is my third language. Ang Aleman ay aking pangatlong lenggwahe. Learning German has never appeared in my thoughts before. But friends, I can speak German now, not that fluent but at least, conversational. Why learning German? Well, my husband’s mother tongue is Deutsch/German.

I wasContinue reading “It all started with a ‘Pho’”

Craving for Milk Tea

One thing I miss about Hongkong is the authentic milk tea which you can buy anywhere in the city. This delicious drink is really a must-try once you set your feet in the Fragrant Harbour of Asia. Its fragrant aroma, distinct taste and smooth, creamy texture will definitely make you crave for it more andContinue reading “Craving for Milk Tea”
