Hello, my friends! When we got to our hotel in Hong Kong, I felt as though I was air-dropped in the set of “Lost In Translation”! By now, we’ve spent a full three weeks in China, traveling from north to south, thought we’ve seen it all, but Hong Kong is different. It gives this mixed feeling of both familiar and foreign, very alluring.
Out hotel is located in the heart of Causeway Bay, Hong Kong’s equivalent of Time Square. The area is filled with all sorts stores, markets, restaurants, entertainments, and people. Locals and visitors tend to gather here for various events. During our 3-day stay, we saw a protest, a film-shooting and a parade, all happened on the same street. Our lens has a very narrow view, I only hope these pictures could provide a glimpse of the essence of Causeway Bay.
Some of you might have noticed that in my China posts, the sky seemed to dimmer. I could partially blame it on the haze, the truth is, wherever we went, we brought rain with us. First Beijing, then Nanchang, then…my brother started to joke about us being the new “Rain Gods”. Could it be true in Hong Kong, for the sky was blue and sun was bright when we first arrived? In the mid-set of our photo shoot, it poured so hard, we had to run inside a shopping center to finish our shoot there. ;D
One little extra note about shopping in Hong Kong — the shop girls offered me different discounts on different items at different times, it was quite confusing even though language was not a barrier. It is advisable to get all the facts before sign the bill. 😉
Thank you so much for reading! It is good to be home! See you!
