  1. If you’re going to Hong Kong I can recommend a few things… Esp to do with pearls and the best place to stay. Also a couple of broken links above, the salad one didn’t work for me, or the sea salt spray one. So now I’ve been left hanging in agony. Which sea salt spray!? What salad thingy!?

I’m going to make it a theme for my blog too. Everything I read I already have. Decided to commit today. Might have another writer friend on-board as well. BUT NO PRESSURE.
