This is the last month that I will be in Hong Kong. It’s actually so sad that within a few weeks time, I will be back at home. Though I do miss it, I will miss being in Hong Kong at the same time. The things I have experienced here is definitely what makes studying abroad more appealing than a work placement. How else can I have so much time to explore and to have super long lie ins??
So at the beginning of April me and my friends went to Beijing! It was so amazing and I am so glad that I got the chance to explore Mainland. Though I think I definitely would not be able to live there but it’s definitely a place to go for a holiday, with many tourist spots. My favourite place to visit was the Summer Palace. It’s just so big and beautiful, there are so many well preserved places inside….and I can’t believe that such a place exists in such a busy and crowded city like Beijing!
As soon as we came back reality sank in, within a week’s time we had our final exams and deadlines for our papers…..it was time to start working! Because of the exams we didn’t go to many places, but we continued with our food trips on the weekend, making sure to have our weekly dose of bubble tea, cheung fan and desserts.
I finished my exams by the end of the month….and even though I now have this much free time to do anything I want before I go back, most of my friends are leaving before me so now we have to make the most out of the time that we are here together before we say goodbye to each other….even though this year seemed like it would never end, it actually nearly has ended. Time has actually flown by and I actually wish I could stay here for even longer, to spend more time in Hong Kong with all of the amazing people that I have met. I feel that Hong Kong has definitely changed me, but for the better. The memories that were made here in Hong Kong will forever be remembered, and I know that I leave Hong Kong with life long and world wide friends.
