My Macau/China/Hong Kong trip - Final (Hong Kong)


Hong Kong central area


Dinner at Tsui Wah restaurant at Central, opposite Yong Kee where it is famous for goose meat. But ducks were sold off at about 3pm and next round is 5pm. We couldnt wait.


Guiness book of record , longest escalator.


Dr Sun Yat sen museum. This building originaly belongs to a church.


The peak!


Wong Tai Sin temple


Went to Nike factory outlet , supposedly at Yip Fat building at Kwun Tong MRT station. . I asked around and it seems they have shifted further down the street.
For RM 500, bought two pairs of sport shoes, 1 winter jacket and a school bag for sis. Good deal :D


Hong Kong trams


Hong Kong Shell :D


Took the above shell pic as me and dad was looking for NoonDay gun, to get across , one has to go through the subway which is kinda difficult to locate. One has to go through the car park at a shopping mall. Worst thing is the noon day gun fires at 12pm daily. Missed it >"<. Took some boat photos instead.
This woman must be filthy rich . To drive in Hong Kong is not cheap, a nice car plus cool number plate...wait... cool word plate...@@'


Talk about God willing(Insya Allah), I actually planned to register for this tourist only yacht for Saturday, goodness i bumped into the tourist center to find out the last two seats avaialble is on Thurs 3pm ! So i changed my schedule.



Hong Kong night


Prostitution is quite common around.


Spotted these food as we walked around Jordan area such as temple street, woman street , shoe street and electronic street.


Australia Milk restaurant. Same place like YiShun where it is famous for egg white slow cooked with fresh cow milk . Yummy!!


About 3rd time I notice someone in front of me reading bible.


Po Lin Monastery at Lantau Island. Dad have me do the "inviting money sign". @%^$#!%#@. ooo notice my new Nike ? :D


We paid HK$ 23 per pax to enter to see the Buddha's tiny bone remaining. The ticket entitled us to some vegetarian rice noodle, and 4 types of dessert. Good enough for lunch no need to pay the HK$ 120 meal voucher.


No idea what's this voodoo doll doing at Po Lin monastery


Dad was praying to the high monk. The place is actually a restaurant not a temple! I think the restaurant is to commemorate the high monk


More pics


Night walk at Avenue of stars and Hong Kong night scene. I love the Hong Kong boat night shot best!


Best beef noodle in Hong Kong. Rumour has it the Hong Kong stars couldnt resist and risk themselves being photo taken while they visit the restaurant.


Dad leg pain! He kept saying "
I am cool , I am alright". Finally he cannot stand it any longer.


Sheung Wan in Hong Kong



Golden Bauhinia Square - where Hong Kong 1997 History took place. look at the amount of stalls there to take photo for tourist HK$ 10 per photo.


"

Streets of Hong Kong. Sweet granpa/grandchild.


Hong Kong museum of art, they were having Egypt road show with artifacts all the way from England museum. The queue was too long . So we gave up.




Dad was resting near Avenue of stars and I went photo hunting of people's story/life. The stretch of light bulbs are used for Hong Kong symphony of lights.





Victoria Harbour


Hong Kong famous Sweet heart/wife cake. Originated from Yuen Long of Hong Kong but it is commercialized and sold at most Sogo outlets.


Hong Kong traffic police. CooooOOoool

Hong Kong, wah, memories. Was there about 22 years ago!

Must inform Shelley that there's a street in Hong Kong named after her! hahahaha! You took pictures of so many streets but Nathan Street lei?

Eh, some of your photos are rather dark lei. Is it because you are taking into the light?

dunno said...

hehe i purposely did it because i am not sure if the exposure is right looking at the viewfinder..

actually my friend told him it is better to leave it dimmer than overly exposed.

Yea kinda regret didnt take Nathan street! and many others...was too busy taking photos all the time sometime i just got tired :(
