Continuation of 5 fabulous days in Hong Kong…
One of the main reasons for our excursion- Houseware/Home Textiles/ and Furnishings convention
Causeway Bay, home of the multi-mega-malls on Hong Kong Island
One of the most renowned Hakata-style ramen joints with individual booth dining- so cool!
Selfie style in my lunch box!
Soooo decadent, I need to track something like this down in the states
Another shopping district with signage spanning the entire street
Snack break! A little Laduree, a little Pierre Herme, and tons of local bites found at the neighborhood 7/11
I love how tiny the streets are- perfect for pedestrians even though vehicles still traverse through these alleys
What the lobby of a 7k USD/month penthouse apartment looks like
with its accompanying 8ft wide chandelier- so luxe!
The view from said apartment…you can see all of Hong Kong’s skyline from 28 floors above ground level- can you imagine waking up to this every morning? Talk about posh!
A traditional Singaporean dinner ‘cuz I was craving something other than Chinese!..lol
Junk boat sighting on Victoria Harbour
The reflection of all the neon lights in the harbour- a beautifully serene scene, you can really lose yourself in thought here
Avenue of the stars at night, these kiosks showcase a bit of Hong Kong film history
Jet Li’s star and hand print taken from superfan aka le bf
The promenade…Victoria Harbour on the left, Hong Kong Museum of Art on the right
Clock tower and reflection pool makes for a great resting spot, loving all the modern architecture here
One of the only clear shots taken on the harbour, it was so misty that night I was lucky to have a handful to post
Sadly my iPhone even took some better shots than the pro cam as the fog rolls in…
Dim Sum for days!…We made a point to try several different locations to sample the variety
One of my FAVE ways to acquaint yourself with the city is by walking it
Much to the boys’ chagrin, we took a side trip to Kowloon Park on our way to the local Bruce Lee exhibit.
Part park, part zoo- loving that you can see all the skyscapers in the background- reminds me a bit of Central Park NYC
BBQ goose is all the rage in Hong Kong, they prefer it to duck since the meat is known to be leaner
More street market shopping! My FAVE…
Shopping for last-minute souvenirs before our journey back to Guangzhou
The rainstorm was coming in during our last day there, gloomy, yet somehow still gorge
Chilly weather calls for hot noodle soup! Looks dirty but this was one of the most highly rated Mom-and-Pop joints on “Open Rice”…friggin’ AMAZING! The locals KNOW their food man
When in Hong Kong…Karaoke! Falalallallalalalal…..
Peace out HK! It’s been REAL- Can’t wait to see you again!
Thank you for following along the journey y’all. Hope this diary gives you a small glimpse into life in Hong Kong.
See the vast difference between HK and China? Which would you prefer to visit???
