Case Family Photos by Speedycat Studios

Our friends over at Speedycat gifted us a few hours of studio time to take some family photos.  It was a wonderful Mother’s Day gift for Mel and the Grandmas.  I was happy that I was able to get a headshot for my LinkedIn profile and Mel was thrilled we got a family photo and some photos of Koa.  Best of all we were able to take some edited photos home with us because they really are speedy!!!  Amy and Gary, thanks so much for your kindness and thoughtfulness!  If you’re in HK and seeking a family friendly studio that works fast, give Speedycat a try and let them know Mel and Jay sent you.

BBQ #2 at Danielle and Allan’s with Watermark Friends, May 1st, 2017

Posted in Daily Life Blurbs by jpcase01 on May 9, 2017

We’ve had a good run of public holidays in HK lately, we were off on Monday, May 1 for Labor Day here and were invited to another BBQ!  BBQs in HK are more like camping in the States where you sit around a fire and cook your own food.  The kids are loving the s’mores as they brought them up almost as soon as we arrived.

Cases Trek to Shek O, April 29th, 2017

Posted in Daily Life Blurbs, Tantalizing Travel by jpcase01 on May 7, 2017

Last Saturday was absolutely gorgeous so we headed out to Shek O, one of our favorite beaches in HK.  Koa did great, it’s still a bit early for the beach for most HK people so there was not much of a crowd.  We got a good price on the chairs and umbrella, had a nice dinner at Happy Garden before heading back home.
