By Telma and Thomas | 2 December 2015 | Hong Kong | Deaf Community

Meeting Hong Kong and Macau Deaf Community was such an amazing experience. We had to solely rely on International Sign, which for Thomas was not an issue, although Telma did struggle a little.

Our friends Xavier and Sammie made us feel very welcome, guided us around Hong Kong and we got invited to a few gatherings with the Deaf Community. We also made it to Macau, and met Simon over there, who kindly drove us around the historic city centre and introduced us to his lovely family.

Below are some of the pictures:

Special Thanks:

We would like to thank Sammie Wong, Xavier Tam, Hong Kong Association of the Deaf and Hong Kong Bowling Deaf Association for their hospitality, generosity and patience. And Simon Szeto for his availability to drive us around Macau for the day and to take us to Macau Association of the Deaf.
