Hong Kong – I love You

September 16th, 2013 Permalink

Hong Kong is a city that I have always loved. After my first trip there in 2007 I was justified in my thoughts about it. It has everything that I love. Great food, lights, skyscrapers, water, boats, mountains, trees and endless places to take photos. My grandfather was there during the Korean war. He tells […]

Hong Kong is a city that I have always loved. After my first trip there in 2007 I was justified in my thoughts about it. It has everything that I love. Great food, lights, skyscrapers, water, boats, mountains, trees and endless places to take photos.

These were all shot in HoiAn and Hanoi Vietnam. Like most tourists, when I was in HoiAn I had some clothing made. Picked up a tailored leather motorcycle jacket. It added a ton of weight to my backpack, but I knew that I was coming to the end of my trip so I decided to throw better judgement to the wind.

I recently started a new job. It came with a decent raise in salary. For those who don’t know, I am a watch nut. I have never had a truly great watch. I have had decent watches. Lately I have been thinking that I would like to get a nice watch. The one I have my eye on is a Logines. It clocks in at $1500. I am having trouble justifying the price because I would also like to get a Leica 50mm summicron. A new one. It is a bit more at about $2000. I can’t really get both. That would be absurd. Ahh what do I get?
