Hi.

Welcome to my blog. Come and stay for a while! 

tourists only wear t-shirts

I certainly wasn't a wallflower when it came to my travel outfits. In fact, I was the exact opposite. When I strode down the streets, heads turned, old men were bemused, teens giggled. Oh yes, dear readers, I was horifically overdressed.

In Hong Kong, I spent most of my time in the wholesale district in short skirts and a gauzy floral singlet. People were confused by the drapery. In Macau, I managed to get my top half right by wearing a t-shirt, as was the tourist custom, but they gazed aghast at my flippy blue skirt. In Manila, despite the greater number of dressed-up people, my clothes didn't fit - either they weren't casual enough and they weren't expensive enough. In the provinces, I was constantly wondering why I had packed for an urban weekend in the Sydney CBD instead of for mucking around in waterfalls, beaches, and rickety roads. Let's face it - I regret leaving my jogging shorts and sneakers at home. But I bet they ain't never seen a girl in lavender silk shorts. Word.
