Last week I spent my days darting in and out of high rises, so this week I'm taking the opportunity to red line loads of my to dos at home. First, a cuppa coffee (or maybe two -- who am I kidding all day long). Before September arrives here's several tidbits to share...
- The Kong's heat and humidity are finally dropping a bit, but I still find myself always sporting a top knot (hey, it is still 90+). So I am always on the look out for another way to stay cool. Here's a cute and easy change to the basic ponytail.
- Sometimes in the era of helicopter parents, I feel we've forgotten that we are preparing our children for life. I can feel the mom's eyes singeing the hair on my head when I stand by and don't get involved. So it was with great relief I heard of Jessica Lahey's book, The gift of Failure. Maybe its not such a bad thing when I sit by and watch my daughter stay in at recess when I know she did not do her homework. She'll learn if she wants to play with her friends she'll get her homework done. Sooner or later...
- I know you were wondering what does Shakespeare sound like in Cantonese? Well, London's Globe theatre is performing Macbeth in Cantonese. Check it out.
- Ever wonder what a Hong Kong high rise apartment looks like? Here's a minimalist one listed by Sotheby's for eight million. (PS My house does not like anything like this.)
