December 8, 2017
Lilmissbelle- Hong Kong

Friday, 24th November  14:56: A wonderful scent wafts through the air, redolent of rice and noodles. It reminds me of my favourite Chinese restaurant back at home. Ironically though, most of the staff have masks covering the lower half of…

Lilmissbelle - Hong Kong

It’s 11.00am in Hong Kong. I woke up about 45 minutes ago, dashed downstairs for breakfast which was quite prosaic. But even if they had a buffet befitting a queen, it would have been wasted on me because I am suffering a bad…
