I recently had the opportunity to travel to Asia on a media fellowship which included a stay-over in Hong Kong. The city revealed itself to me alternately as chaotic and calm — in  exploring its fascinating districts, I took care to balance the nerve-jangling yang of urban street life with yin-restoring interludes in peaceful city parks.
I was at once overwhelmed in the human crush of Kowloon, and transported by the tranquility of Diamond Hill’s Chi Lin Nunnery. Overcome by the clamourous nightlife of Lan Kwai Fong and lulled by a lazy escape to Lamma Island. Have a read of my latest travel piece, The Yin and Yang of Hong Kong, published in The Vancouver Sun, with photos in this gallery.
