Hong Kong is Hot & Humid during summer. I totally forgot about this when I went back to my hometown for vacation last month.
Typhoon stage 1 warning was up when I arrived. For the next few weeks, I was sweating like a pig whenever I went outside. I lost some weight and it is an unexpected gift I guess. It was raining a few times and the sun came out and it is hot again.
Hong Kong is very crowded and most citizens take MTR (Mass Transit Railway) to beat the traffic. (See Photo). Personal space is a luxury over there.
Here is a photo of my old neighborhood. It is in the Kowloon side of Hong Kong. BTW, I was testing the Panorama mode of my new camera: Nikon Mirror less J2. You could see these buildings are from the past. Nothing change much at this spot.
Hong Kong Government rarely gives support to its artists but Cattle Depot Artist Village provides low rent spaces for them to work. It is located at 63 Ma Tau Kok Road, Kowloon.
My friends & relatives love to buy me lunches and dinners every time I came back to visit.
Here are some highlights:
We went to eat Thai food in Kowloon Bay.
Dumplings is not bad
Veggie Tofu in Tokwawan (Old shop more than 20 yrs) is fantastic but you need to put this yellow sugar in order to complete the best taste.
You could buy some for cooking at home too
One of My FAV: BBQ Pork and BBO Goose on a bowl of rice
My friend Stanley took me to this spot: Charlie brown Coffee House in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon side.
These are local food joints on the streets in Jordan, Kowloon. No place like this in LA.
After a bunch of good meals, I recommend we look at the beautiful skylines of Hong Kong. This is called Victoria Harbor. I would ride the Star Ferry to fully experience the great atmosphere & exciting pulse of this Pearl of the Orient: Hong Kong.
See You next time, my home sweet home. BTW, I went to Macau too and I will share it with you if being requested.
