Mother's Day In Hong Kong.

If we were back in the United States, we would take the weekend to drive up or down the east coast to some town on the water to celebrate Mother's Day. Charleston or Wilmington were two of our favorite cities to visit. Since we live on the Kowloon Peninsula of Hong Kong, we are surrounded by a beautiful waterfront, so just like in years past, we celebrated Mother's Day in Hong Kong on the water.

Mother's Day for our family is celebrated all weekend long, doing some of my favorite things. Things that included a two hour massage, brunch on both Saturday and Sunday, handmade cards from the children, fresh flowers, and really just spending time together.

Just like most things for me here in Hong Kong, Mother's Day was a bit different since we were in a different country and were not familiar with what was available to us. My husband and I spent a good chunk of time trying to find a great brunch buffet option to go to. The internet has compiled plenty of lists of different restaurants that offer brunch. We had one conflict for brunch on Sunday, since we decided to go to church and brunch is offered during the hours we're at church. So instead of a full brunch buffet on Sunday morning, we ate at Passion. The owner of the restaurants actually goes to the same church we attend in Central. They have three different locations here in Hong Kong, and we ate at the restaurant in Tsim Sha Tsui. Everyone in our family loves the croissants and pastries that are made in the restaurant, as well as the quaint atmosphere.
