Karina Chronicles

Penelope in Windy Hong Kong!


Based out of New York City and Canada, Cinny is the mommy to JR and Baby Pom. When not working or studying full time, she can be found working on Whirlwind of Surprises or cuddling with her hubby and playing with her dogs. She shines in the warm company of friends and family and  enjoys playing with her 3 little nephews.

While I was in Hong Kong, I was solicited to film a commercial for #KarinaNation. Mmmhmm, this fashionista was in a shampoo commercial! I was the Penelope 3/4 Sleeve in Creme Brullee Puchi size XS and ready to go.

Or so it seemed… Really, it was decent weather that day, at the bottom of The Peak. Unfortunately though, once you reached the top, the wind was blowing every which way and much colder than expected.

With a beautiful views of Hong Kong both before and after sunset, I couldn’t help but want a portrait in my gorgeous dress. I’m not sure if it happened though. My hair had a life of it’s own. Sometimes it was completely straight up…other times, it was just in my face. I think I finally got one where you see my face in it. Haha, it was totally like a shampoo commercial, right?


After that we wandered back to the warmer lower levels and checked out the gorgeous city lights. In my opinion, it’s especially pretty around Christmas with all the Christmas lighting. Dad actually took us to an area where they first took me to see Christmas lights my very first Christmas decades ago. It’s nothing like how it was back then now but there were still fascinating areas nearby.

We walked to the Avenue of Stars, which is kind of like the Chinese Walk of Fame and oh my gosh, there were way too many people. People were jam packed everywhere and you couldn’t move without bumping into someone. At times, you couldn’t move at all! It is, however, the best place to take pictures of the breath taking Christmas lights you see annually across the harbor. Another beautiful memory with Karina…haha, Karina is my favorite travel buddy now.
