To celebrate Korean Parents’ Day (May 8th) and American Mothers’ Day (May 11th) this year, I made this from video I had taken with my mom during a trip to Hong Kong last year. Full of inside jokes and fun memories, it probably isn’t entertaining to anyone but us, but I thought I’d share it anyway.
My mom and I are having the best time in Hong Kong. We rode a cable car to the Big Buddha, shopped at the outlets, took a ferry to Macau, and walked the Avenue of Stars. So much more I want to do, but we only have three days left!

The Venetian Hotel complex is one of the most famous landmarks in Las Vegas. Its counterpart in Macau is perhaps less well known, but after recent developments is now larger and more impressive. It is now the largest hotel in Asia and the fourth largest building in the world by area, with floor space covering 980 square kilometres.
If I had to choose between really hot weather or really cold weather, I'd probably choose the former. The main reason being that it's nice to hang out in the street under the shade of a tree. Luckily for us though, Korea has four seasons, as every Korean will tell you.
A couple of hundred years before the British colonised Hong Kong, the Portugese were already in Macau under a slightly more amicable agreement. Macau was once a major trading portal for South East Asia, but declined in that role and has since become more famous for its casinos.
