This week has been a strange one with my mind only on the the Hong Kong protests. With strong family ties to HK, every spare minute has been spent checking for the latest updates. With plenty of friends involved too, I've seen photos of the megaphones they've purchased for the crowds, public talks they'd attended given by professors, happy groups proudly wearing yellow ribbons and others who are doing an amazing job keeping everyone up to date on the latest developments. Most of all, I've admired their fighting spirit and I feel so proud of those who are making a stand for what they believe in despite growing opposition and hostility. It's sad to see the division among HKers and even my own family who hold polarised opinions on the matter. HK will get through this and I hope that it will emerge a better place for all those that live there. I couldn't have predicted how much the situation has affected me as I'm all the way over in the UK and I have felt quite emotional reading updates and watching various videos. There hasn't been much coverage in the UK but check out my Twitter feed for more info, this Youtube video and articles like this.

On a side note,  sometimes we need a little cheer and it's about time I featured this Taiyaki bag in a proper post! I'm still obsessed with it and it never fails to bring a smile to my face. In the shape of the Japanese fish shaped snack (it's like a fish shaped waffle with a red bean filling) it's most definitely the silliest and happiest bag I own!

  6. I haven't actually seen as much coverage as I'd expect on the news to be honest, it's clearly a massive deal but it's not taking up much air time.

    1. Yeah, you're right, there's really not much mention of the situation at all. I suppose since the handover, the Brits are trying to stay out of it as much as possible...

  7. That bag is the cutest thing ever. I hope your family is doing well.

  8. This bag is so cute! I hope all your friends and family stay safe, but I'm sure it will all be worth it in the end! I really haven't seen much about it from mainstream sources, a college teacher mentioned it a few days ago and other than that I've had to search for hashtags before actually seeing much about it.

  9. That bag is still incredible. Might have to try and pick one up myself!

  11. Love that bag! it definitely makes a statement. Hoping for democracy in Hong Kong and that it all settles down soon.

  12. I hardly hear a word about Hong Kong these days. If I didn't go on Tumblr, I think I might not hear anything at all. I hope not only your friends and family in Hong Kong stay safe, but everyone there--everyone fighting for their rights and everyone caught in the crossfire!

    1. Thanks Carly. Yeah it's not quite on the huge scale that is was a few weeks ago, but the protests are most definitely still going. Thanks for your well wishes! :)

  13. Girl you look so street with that Adidas shirt! But of course that taiyaki bag makes up for that (the one I still have yet to see in person). Yeah I haven't been able to focus on anything else except the protest. It's been a bit crazy and everyone's divided in opinion. And I also feel a bit bad for posting on stuff other than the political climate in HK? Like, who cares about where I ate for lunch when the future of Hong Kong is at the whims of a corrupt government! Ok maybe I'm just being over-dramatic.

    1. Haha, I know right, I'm sooo street! Ok, I'll see if I can manage to bring the little Taiyaki it back with me next year. We'll have to hunt down some Taiyaki! Perfect...
