So things don’t always turn out the way we hope, although I have no regrets. But I do enjoy looking back at photos from that time and only wish I’d taken more.
This photo was shot in the Sheung Wan district in December 1994 when my parents flew into Hong Kong to visit me. Little did they know that they were going to meet my fiance. They didn’t even know I was dating!
I love going to local cafes like this one. The menu, as you can see, is taped to the wall. We have the requisite toilet paper napkins (in pink here!) and metal pot of pu er tea. It’s almost like an indoor dai pai dong with its folding tables and stools.
My parents were good sports and seemed to enjoy their visit, big surprise and all.
