Was in HK this weekend for work, and managed to join the protest before my flight. The protest was in Tsim Sha Tsui (an area where mainland Chinese tourists frequent) and the purpose was to share the message to them, many of whom were unaware of what’s going on.

Visited Lisbon for the first time last weekend and absolutely fell in love with it. Only had 32 hours in the city and spent most of my time chasing trams  🇵🇹

Feeling heartbroken and helpless. Deep down we know nothing is going to change, but we can’t just stand there and do nothing.🇭🇰

A very good analogy I heard yesterday: “If your mom is about to get shot with a gun, you would do anything to cover the shot for her, even if you know you won't be able to save her.”

Desert rose ️🇶🇦 // went on a quick tour of Doha during my 7 hours layover from Iran to Sydney. One of the spots was National Museum of Qatar, a beautiful architecture inspired by the desert rose crystal. Pictures simply doesn’t do this place justice! #QatarAirways #DiscoverQatar #DohaTogether

Time to reflect  // Ali Ebn-e Hamzeh shrine in Shiraz, where the interior walls are covered with tiny mirrors which took 10 years to construct. This was one of the spots with free entry, and lovely guides that walk you through the shrine and offer cookies and tea.

To see with your own eyes 🇮🇷 // channeling my inner lifestyle blogger self... too bad I don’t have a long flowy dress to twirl around in  On a more serious note though - the level of detail in these mosques are absolutely mind blowing. #canonHK #EOSArtisan

My favorite place for food in Isfahan: Azadegan Tea House (aka Haj Mirza), located right by Naqsh-e Jahan Square. Not only is the local Iranian food tasty, the interior is amazing too with a collection of lamps and photo frames hanging from the ceiling. Take a look on Highlighted stories for bts! #canonHK #EOSArtisan
