Instagramming 8 (mega post!)

Ah so OK, I've been a bit lax with the Instagram posts and well, I'm going to hit you guys with a mammoth post full of some of my favourite pics from the last couple of weeks. As ever, it's absolutely full of photos of the food I eat and places I've been and is probably a good insight to the Chinese food I eat on a daily basis! These pics have definitely increased since my HK family are visiting and they can often be found in the kitchen cooking up a feast or baking lots of cakes. In fact, they're baking Chinese coconut tarts this obviously, I will be instagramming (my username is diamondcanopy) that a bit later too.

Right, I must not leave it so long the next's a bit of a visual feast huh? I have a weekend full of farewell plans with my family as they are leaving to fly back to HK on Sunday. It's kind of crazy as I stayed with them during my 3 months in HK and then when I arrived back in the UK, it was soon their turn to visit and stay with us. So it does seem a bit strange that for the first time in 4 months, I won't be seeing them every day! Well, until the next time I fly to HK that is...
