ah, hong kong. home sweet home. we arrived sunday evening and have started settling in our wee apartment. good news: we have a kitchen, somewhat. it's located in a corner of our living room and is composed of a mini-fridge, a sink, a microwave, and a 2-plate range... might call for some creativity. pictures to come.
we haven't had a chance to go to a supermarket yet, so in the last 12 hours i've had to make due with what we brought in our suitcases. i got a small cut on my neck, and because of the recent american staph infection scare (although i'm on a different continent), i was concerned about disinfecting the thing. i went through my toiletries and decided toothpaste was my best bet. it stung like a banshee, but i feel a little better about the situation. and as i was applying my makeup this morning, i dropped my bronzer, and the powder compact shattered all over the bathroom floor. dang it! as i was mopping up the mess with water and toilet paper, the bronzer was leaving its intended pinkish glow -- all over the white tile. so what do you do when you have no 409? whitening toothpaste! worked like a charm -- at least for now.
