The Styling Librarian

In my opinion, books are the best accessory.

Styling Librarian: Hong Kong Transition: Week 9

I thought it would be fun to share this past week in pictures. So, there’s a slideshow at the end of this post which includes some random photos I’ve snapped this past week. We’ve had a wonderful week and I’ve enjoyed Zumba, celebrating my husband’s birthday with a movie (terrible one I won’t bash here) and finding a new Thai restaurant we really enjoyed, connecting with people online, visiting with co-workers and teaching students, meeting with my principal about updates to the library, weeding and reconfiguring library areas, and many other activities. I look forward to more this coming week. 

We had fun seeing Potted Potter today, what entertainment! I never would have thought to combine a disco ball, silly string, hula hoop quidditch, and multimedia presentations with a performance about all the Harry Potter books but, wow, it was accomplished and laugh out loud funny to boot. I highly recommend this!! http://www.pottedpotter.com  360 Harry Potter characters in 70 minutes with just two actors.

I did make two movies to share with my sister for our “Sister-Vlog”… here they are for those who want a glimpse at a speedboat racing around a pond in the middle of a public park… and a few others. I loved the tree that I made my featured picture in this blog- it is interconnected with roots going down and then out another place and just made me stop, pause, and appreciate…

Speed boat- this was not the only one but it was the largest and noisiest! Who knew there would be a little pond for people to share their hobby of model boats in the middle of the park. The other video is more walking through the park and appreciating the beauty of it:

 

Bamboo Scaffolding: Around a week ago, I was Skyping with my parents and the subject of construction comes up, it inevitably does if I Skype on Saturday as the other construction next to our apartment is quite apparent from 8am-6:40pm. My Dad said “I think bamboo is used quite a lot in construction over there…” Boy is he right! One day later, next to our building we noticed a large load of bamboo being delivered. We’ve been fascinated with the progress of this scaffolding, even our dog is fascinated- think her image is cut off in the middle picture but she’s keeping a close eye on those people climbing away. I actually took a quick video of it too:


Loads has occurred in life besides this sharing this week including a special author visit connection that occurred because of Twitter. I shall blog about this soon because it deserves its own post.

Thank you so very much for all the support – keeps me going, honestly!!
