At exactly today – Valentines Day of 2014, Hon and I got to experience one of the most special Valentine celebrations in the existence of our almost 15-year relationship. We were in a cruise, watching the Symphony of Lights and having sumptuous dinner in Hong Kong’s Victoria Harbour. Today, I only got to write this experience and share with you. And as I always say, you can only capture the moments in photos and experiences are things that you can keep as memories – beautiful and beyond comparable. Errrrk! Enough for the sweet introduction just because it’s Valentines Day! It…
