Mums are pretty awesome.
They are an inspiration with one of the most important jobs in world and sometimes it takes becoming a mum to really appreciate how wonderful they are.
With out them, we wouldn’t be here. They nurture us, selflessly devote countless hours to ensure we are happy and healthy, support us through bad times and nurse us when we are sick.
They open their hearts to children in need of a loving home through fostering and adoption. They nurture children with disabilities, autism and childhood diseases such as cancer. They sometimes even give the gift of a kidney so we may live long healthy lives.
They also raise our future leaders and encourage us to be all we can be.
Mums really are amazing, each in their own unique way. So to all the wonderful Mums out there, we thank you.
Oh my! Where has 2012 gone? To think this time last year we were packing the bags to spend Christmas with my little bro in Hong Kong.
I love Hong Kong. There is something intriguing about this city. It’s got this east meets west vibe with surprises down every street - hidden temples, bustling markets, quaint parks or chic cafés. The smells are divine and the shopping is fabulous. Restaurants, bars and nightlife rival that of anywhere in the world. I love that you can by a Smirnoff Black at the 7-11 (found on just about every corner) and the bamboo scaffolding is insane!
And I didn’t expect Hong Kong to be such a creative city. It has such a strong design community and is fast establishing itself as a design and creative hub of Asia. So as a fellow creative type person, I’m in good company over there.
