Isn't it adorable?
I can't say I'll miss the tiny kitchen though.
Of course the best part is the view of the old Central Police Station (this picture was taken before it was covered is scaffolding for the renovation).
Although I've been caught up with non-writing and reading life lately, some of my work appeared this summer on the new Modern Love Long Distance website. As some of you know, my husband and I did not live in the same country for three and a half years of our nearly six-year relationship. Here's a Q&A about our relationship and an article I wrote about moving abroad for a partner. I will continue to write about the lessons I learned at MLLD over the next few months.
I have decided to take my husband's last name, but I plan to continue using Shannon Young as my writing, professional, and social media name. To that end, I've set up a new Facebook page as Shannon Young, the writer. If you are interested in my writing, feel free to like the page for updates. If you are only interested in the matters discussed on A Kindle in Hong Kong (bookspotting, reviews, Hong Kong, literary events) that Facebook page will remain active. In fact, I hope it will be a bit more active as I get back into the swing of things.
What's new with you? Any major life events to report? What have you been reading lately? I'm almost finished with Mad Ship by Robin Hobb.
