Hong Kong Photo Diary Part II

Thursday, May 08, 2014


Continuation of 5 fabulous days in Hong Kong…


(From top to bottom)
The gorgeous Hong Kong skyline seen from Avenue of the Stars...
One of the main reasons for our excursion- Houseware/Home Textiles/ and Furnishings convention, where there's play there's gotta be some work!...
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...


 (From top to bottom)
Junk boat sighting on Victoria Harbour! I'm such a tourist, lol...
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...
The fog rolls in...


(From top to bottom)
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...
These ponds are home to hundreds of Koi fish...
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?

  2. Amazing post Julie! I love love seeing these posts! The food just made me soooo envious! The noodles with beef, the dim sum, the claypot glass noodles! OOO and why is that SASA sign SOOO BIG??! I'm soo jealous! I'd be in there and probably need to be left here alone for a whole day! So happy to see that you had such a great time! I hope to visit in the future!
