Three careers ( design, theatre, education);
A theatre company (created);
An online publication (inherited);
Countless theatre productions (acted on);
Nine theatre productions (directed);
Twenty theatre productions (produced) ;
One master degree;
Countless friendships made;
A few friendship broken (maybe they weren’t friendships after all);
Hundred thousand lessons learned;
A few lessons that have yet to be learned;
Two theatre awards;
Still no house bought;
Several articles published;
Countless places around the world visited;
Ups and downs but overall ups.
Eleven years ago I packed a small suitcase, left my beloved and yet stale Sydney (I only lived there for a year and few months) and headed to Hong Kong for a fashion design internship that was supposed to last for less than a year.
Little I knew that what was waiting for me was going to be a roller coaster of people, facts, events and emotions.
More can, and must, be done. Let’s keep going.
Happy eleventh year Hong Kong anniversary to me.
