Welcome to Hong Kong Fong!


Photo Jul 12, 3 46 25 PM

Welcome to WanderFong! My name is Deb Fong, and I am a Hong Kong-based expat relocated from NYC.

Funny where life takes you – I never expected to actually live here, although I have always treasured trips throughout Asia. Here with my husband Mark now, I am incredibly excited as I discover the big city draws and the hidden little gems, the old and the new, the local nuances and the more western influences, the traditional and the edgy – and as I meet and learn from true locals and fellow expats. I immerse myself in everything – the amalgam of cuisine, culture, the incredible natural surroundings, the promise of new friends with their own unique stories.

HK is also an incredible base for the rest of Asia, and I am thoroughly enjoying my deeper explorations of the region. As one example, one of my most recent regional trips took me to Singapore. I happened to be there when former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew passed away, and I was able to witness first-hand the outpouring of respect and love Singapore’s people have for him. Two of the images I captured of these events were honored as Finalists in the 2015 Getty Images #Repicture Singapore photography competition. And I am now a Getty Images Moment Collection Contributor, which is such a thrill and honor.

I decided to start my blog (originally called Hong Kong Fong), more as a personal diary of sorts, but it has evolved to become more of an immersive experience covering broader territory as I continue to travel the world. This is a whole new, incredible chapter in my life, and more than ever, I want to absorb and document my explorations both in writing and with the photos I always enjoy taking (I’ve been photographing around the world for about 15 years).

I look forward to continuing to share my perspectives with other like-minded explorers and those who are just curious. Please join me on my adventures, and I hope you enjoy my observations of and musings on life in HK and travel beyond. Thanks for reading, and please share with your friends and family!



On a side note, I’m thrilled to have received the Liebster Blog Award (12 October, 20132 July, 2014, and 15 November, 2014) and also the Versatile Blogger Award (19 December, 2013).

Such recognition is deeply appreciated.
