In my opinion, books are the best accessory.
Day 8: We had a ‘day of reading’ in the middle of this week of business before… It was a lovely peaceful day of reading. I was able to finish a few books I’d begun and felt frustrated not finishing yet. My son listened to one of his stories and completed reading another and my husband also enjoyed some reading… Nice to have a ‘day of reading’ my kind of day of peace!
We additionally went to see the movie Frozen. I was anticipating this movie for quite some time and loved the music throughout. Especially since Idina Menzel performed as the main character Elsa in the movie. Wow what a set of lungs. I had a slightly difficult time at first shifting my mind from thinking about the musical Wicked to thinking about the movie Frozen since I’ve adored and listened to the music from Wicked for numerous years… sure, she was in Glee and Rent as well as many other movies and also is an independent singer but I always think of Wicked… quite the talent. (On the other hand, my husband wasn’t too fond of the movie, but enjoyed Wicked, go figure!) Really enjoyed this movie, recommended!
I was pleased that Disney actually released the most fantastic scene of the movie (in my opinion)- Let it go:
And I have to sneak in one of my favorite Idina Menzel’s performances:
Hip hooray to a peaceful day with books and movie entertainment…
Here’s the next movie we probably will see as a whole family!:
Normally, I share a weekly reflection on life here in Hong Kong. I’m going to do something a little different for the next eight weeks, I’m going to share our “make lemonade” story. Sure, I’ll probably have other special events within those eight weeks, but I’ve decided that this year, I won’t be as rigid with my Hong Kong reflection posts and if I have an opportunity for quality reflection, I’ll grab it and share!
We planned a family vacation to Malaysia complete with flights, hotels, air b+b’s, and night trains all booked and paid for… then when we headed to the airport, we tried to check in and the airline turned us away… why? Because we needed to have six months or more on our passports and we had five and a half months before renewal. If the airline didn’t turn us away and we flew to Malaysia, we’d be turned away and sent right back to Hong Kong. So… as frustrated as we were, we headed back home and quickly unpacked everything. Then we went out to make the most of the day. Thank goodness my husband and I (and our wonderful son) are able to find solutions… Here are our adventures from
our week in Malaysia our staycation in Hong Kong. We had a fantastic week and enjoyed many different adventures!
