Flower Market



Hello my loves, sorry that you haven't heard from me on here for more than a week. I just felt I needed to take last weekend off, not plan any shootings or work at all, and live in the moment. After all I only have 8 days left in Hong Kong. But who's counting?!

So last Sunday I spent the day in Macau which was a complete waste of my precious lifetime. At night, yes, Macau is fun, but as soon as the sun comes up get the hell out of there. Maybe I am exaggerating but I just didn't like the city at all. Macau being a former Portuguese colony I expected to feel a little bit of the colonial spirit while wandering streets with pastel colored houses and then chilling at a Portuguese style cafe in the sun. Forget about it. The city although filled with people felt dead and without flair to me. Maybe I was expecting too much.

Today I actually wanted to talk a little bit about working in a creative job. My internship in the Product Development at Li&Fung is coming to an end so of course I am drawing a resume for myself. I have to say that I love working in a creative environment. It has always been like this for me. I've been drawing, writing, dancing and singing since I was a little kid so it seems to be my naturelle. Now with this internship where I mostly design I took my creativity to a professional level. It is not easy, but I love it. While most people have to deal with smaller or bigger problems all day long, I make the world a tiny bit prettier each day. At the end of a work day I can look at my designs and feel like I have given something positive to this world. My boss always says "only create beautiful things" and that's what I am trying to do. 

It is not easy sometimes though to be creative, meaning coming up with new concepts, patterns, color combinations etc, 9 hours a day, 5 days a week. Some fridays I feel like all my creativity is used up and dare you ask me what color or shape something has. Because on a friday night I don't know. Or when you are just not feeling very well, you can't just stupidly file paperwork or else but you still have to bring new ideas to life. And here I have to say, I have the biggest respect for designers who worked before there was the internet. What would I do without things like Pinterest to get inspired when I am stuck and all you hear is "You are creative. You figure it out!". 

To refill my batteries I like to go to the flower market in Mong Kok/Prince Edward on the weekends, where these pictures were taken. There is something about flowers that make people happy. Maybe it's the combination of color, scent and liveliness that bring that immediate feeling of joy to us. To run my Saturday errands I usually don't dress up like this but I wanted something colorful and girly for these pictures so I picked this pretty pink dress by a local Korean shop. Korean fashion is too much for European taste most of the time but me being a girly girl I like having a look around.

Enjoy the weekend and recharge your creativity!
