Exploring Hong Kong: More Street Art

Here I am again attempting to continue blogging about last year's super duper awesome trip to Hong Kong. I was stuck with the day 1 post for the longest time. Haha. Since day 2's really heavy on photographs, I decided to split it to 2 parts: first one's our sort of photowalk to see the…
