jessica left her heart in San Francisco for Hong Kong on a Fulbright in 2009 and ate her way across the city. impressed by the colorful flavors of HK, she has decided to stay a little while longer so that she may continue to eat across Southeast Asia. aside from cooking and eating, her other hobbies include painting and reading Ancient Greek poetry. she will share her photographic musings here as often as they appear.

P.S. If you would like to see the photos enlarged, click on the photo itself.
