Has another year passed? No, seriously….has it? What did we do in 2021? Last year I wrote a recap of our Year in 2020 (which you can read here if you missed it) and finished by saying 2021 would get better. I’m not sure it did. We kicked off 2021 by celebrating our dear Felicity’s … More 2021: Year in Review
If you have followed along on our Hong Kong housing, you’ll remember our first little place (see it here) in Wan Chai and then the larger unit in that same building (see it here), which we moved in to when I was pregnant with Campbell. You might remember that I mentioned in my 2019 Review … More Tseung Kwan O Apartment Tour
Well here were are, over 30% of the way through 2020 and I’m still trying to summarize 2019. I was an absolute blur of a year full of changes and confusions; maybe I’m still trying to wrap my head around everything that happened.
No surprises here…our little toddler’s lifestyle (can you believe Campbell is TWO now?!) is demanding a few changes around our place. When we decided to upgrade from our previous one bedroom apartment I wondered how well and for how long our two bedroom, two bathroom space would work for us. I’m happy to report that we … More Hong Kong Apartment: Recent Changes
Hosting friends at our place ticks a lot of boxes for us. We enjoy preparing food for others to enjoy, it’s a nice break from eating out (the Hong Kong norm), and selfishly…when we host at our place we can still hang out with friends with a contented sleeping baby in the next room. It … More How We Host a Dinner Party in 590 Sq Ft
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…if we hadn’t moved to Hong Kong, there is no chance we would be living in a small apartment, especially now as a family of three. Our former Vancouver digs – 800 sq ft one bedroom place (see photos of that here) was never going to cut … More Hong Kong House Sizes
At some point during our time here in Hong Kong (probably somewhere between learning I was pregnant and deciding to move to a slightly larger place to accommodate our baby’s arrival), I got really interested in small-space dwelling with a baby. I discovered a great blog written by another small-space-dwelling-Alison; 600SQFTANDABABY captures her life in Vancouver living … More Do You Need to Be Creative to Live Small?
As many of you have read, we’ve enjoyed living in a tiny, cozy apartment here in Hong Kong. A while back I shared our little slice of Canada that we created in 440 square feet (if you missed it, read up: here). Knowing we were expecting a baby we needed somewhere with a bit more space and began … More Our New *Larger Hong Kong Apartment
The finishing touches are FINALLY in place and we’re feeling completely settled in our Hong Kong home! A few things took a bit longer than we anticipated – the last little things always seem to drag on forever – but we’re finally organized and not coming home to a list of to-do’s. Hooray! My strategy … More Hong Kong Apartment: Our Canadiana Haven
