Exciting Plans :)

Hello All.

I apologize for taking so long to post another blog. Things have been good here, busy, busy, but good. I can’t believe we are already into March! The time is flying by sooo fast. So far March has been a very school focused month. I’ve been trying to get a handle on all of my projects and papers so that I can really enjoy all of my exciting upcoming plans.

Next weekend two of my friends from home are coming out to visit me. I am SO excited!! It will be an absolutely amazing 8 days. I can’t wait to show them all of the fabulous things HK has to offer. We are going to go to Ocean Park (an amusement park) and all of the other HK tourist places as well as my favorite local spots.

Right after they leave, I am going to Vietnam and Cambodia. I am very pumped—I am going to see Ho Chi Minh City and then go up to Siem Reap in Cambodia and see Angkor Wat temples and hopefully ride an elephant! Then I will go to Phnom Phen (the capitol of Cambodia) and from there go back into Vietnam and see the Mekong Delta. It should be the trip of a lifetime!

After returning from Vietnam and Cambodia, some friends and I are headed to the beautiful white beaches of the Philippines.

I will have to attend classes and do homework in between, but overall I would say that the next two months should be pretty exciting. I am also hoping to get up to Beijing or at least see some other areas of mainland China. Jess and I are also going to head out to Macau (another SAR of China) and bungee jump from the world’s highest bungee jump.

I am absolutely loving Hong Kong. I’ve gotten used to the food and I love all of the little differences. I definitely miss home, some days more than others but overall, HK is quite the country and I am so glad that I have gotten the chance to live here for a bit.

Love and Miss,
Cassie
