My name is Mirna and I am, you guessed it, a very tall Croatian girl that just moved to Hong Kong. This is my attempt to share the amazement, wonder and pure bewilderment I experience in every day life.

Transformation of the Qipao was a special exhibition at Hong Kong Museum of History. Qipao or cheongsum in Cantonese is a traditional outfit worn by Chinese women. The exhibition started with old b&w photos

I love this photo - I’m sure they married for love.
Some of the quipao where great while others screamed of 70’s.
