i think freckles, stretch marks, tattoos, bruises, birthmarks and scars are probably the coolest thing, you started with almost a blank canvas and look at u now, all this evidence that you’ve lived and the sun has shone on you and you’ve grown and maybe tripped up a few times and liked an image so much you made it a permanent part of you, beautiful.

Visuals from my weekend in Sai Kung;
With each passing week in Hong Kong, I find myself becoming bolder in the decisions that I'm make and the adventures that I'm going on. Decided to go hiking on a whim and thus I called up a few girlfriends here, did some really last minute planning and then left home in search of this beautiful place. I'm glad to say that the view did not disappoint and even if it did, I wouldn't have regretted a single moment of it. They say that 10 years down the road, you will be more regretful of the things you didn't do, then the things that you do. And I love this saying because I'd honestly rather look back at the bad memories and laugh them off rather then have wasted the fullness of the experience and not have anything to look back upon. Try pushing yourself out of your boundaries once in a while, you'll be surprised to see how much more life has to offer :)

Greetings from Hong Kong, the country that I will be calling my 'home' for the next 6 months. It feels so surreal being here because it didn't seem all that long ago when I was back in +65 with my friends and family but now I'm here in +852 by myself.
Look the liberty of the HK National Day to go out exploring the less 'mainstream' places of HK and I stumbled across this lovely road. Apart from ducking the oncoming cars and avoiding the stares of some, this was a really lovely experience ;)
I've really become a whole lot more spontaneous since I've set foot into Hong Kong and I'm glad that I am because I truly want to experience HK to the fullest while I'm here.

15:00 hours; that's when I decided to unleash the little odd ball in me.
I'm Cheryl, 18 going on 19 and currently residing in +65. My obsessions include growing out my mermaid hair (and playing with it when I'm bored or nervous), constantly checking my emails, edting photos on the go and being on my iphone 24/7. Even though I'm pretty much tech obsessed, I'm not one of those people who "never looks up", in fact I think I look up more than most would. The sky never fails to intrigue me, and whether in the day or the night, rain or shine, I would gladly look up to escape this crazy world for a while. I like to observe my surroundings as well and so you'll me wide awake on long bus rides trying to take in as much as possible. You'll also realize that I'm one of those individuals who are super sensitive to stares and if you happen to look at me (for an uncomfortable period of time if I might add), I will find you and I will shoot you a glare. I hate uncomfortable/awkward situations and I'd try my best to get out of them by either pretending to be clueless or to just laugh it off. I also wear my shades almost everywhere because I hate making eye contact with random strangers. They say your eyes are the windows to your soul and I would hate to have them be so vulnerable to random passerby's. However having said that, I do love to flash random smiles at people who pass me by and I know that it makes absolutely no sense to do one and not the other, but it's just the way I am.
At the end of the day, I would have to admit that I'm a total weirdo. But you know what, everyone's a little bit weird and that's what makes us different from each other. These little quirks that I possess make me uniquely me and I love them.
I'm an odd ball and I'm proud of it.
And so should you .x

Honestly wasn't expecting much from the film I shot but was pleasantly surprised at how some of the pictures turned out. The scenic surroundings accompanied with a slight tinge of gloom resulted in the shots above and honestly I find them absolutely amazing. It most definitely wasn't the kind of beauty I was going for when I was visualizing this photo journal but they are beautiful nonetheless.
I guess I learnt an important lesson today, that there's always beauty to be found in every situation.
