Last week I got my first glimpse of a British Summer - 27 degrees and humidity hovering around 40%. Throw in the wispy breeze and you've got the elements of a perfect Summer (damn straight, Hong Kong, get it together). As a big fat hiya sunshine! , I've busted out some of my favorite Summer essentials, including my RETROSUPERFUTURE Giaguaro sunglasses and my mini collection of shorts. Staying cool in a carpeted top-floor apartment with no aircon has been of utmost priority, especially when it comes to food - so I've resorted to adding mint to everything. There's nothing more crisp and refreshing than a minted strawberry smoothie with a splash of lemonade. Super 爽 as we like to describe it in Chinese. That and my new handy dandy desk fan, which doubles as a wind machine for when I'm feeling particularly frisky. MEOWWWWWW~

Everyone hallahz at the Queen for her Diamond Jubilee!
