As promised, another update from Hong Kong! This time, however, you don’t have to do much reading. Just looking at photos and, oh is that a video? Why yes! Yes it is! Brother gave me this awesome little portable camera for Christmas which is very travel friendly, so I’ve been doing a little filming today. So enough chatter, let’s have some visual material!
For anybody who is uncomfortable with graphic raw and cooked food images, there are a couple in this post, plus a small clip in the video – just so you know. You have been warned! And so on we go…
Around Hong Kong
Taking the Star Ferry from Kowloon to Hong Kong at night.
A Star Ferry worker.
Hong Kong by tram.
Typical Hong Kong signs on Gage Street.
An “idol basher” – they draw somebody you want to hex on a piece of paper, then bash it with a shoe and burn it, whilst cursing them. Located under one of the bridges around Causeway Bay.
On Wing Lee Street – where ‘Echoes of the Rainbow’ was filmed, and a typical Hong Kong sight of clothing drying outside the front window. Soon to become obsolete as the government slowly reclaims buildings and space to build new highways and high-rise buildings.
The famous Man Mo Temple around Central.
The famous “dai pai dong” (street food) street around Central.
A man having a shave at a traditional barber shop around Central.
Fun times with a good friend.
At The Market
Warning: contains graphic raw food photographs.
Grating a turnip; chopping “siu-yook” in an eatery (barbecued pork).
A nut vendor; fruit stall.
One of the fishmonger’s; a pig’s trotter; split fish heads.
A Little More Food
The famous Tsui Wah Restaurant around Central. Another famous Chinese tea house – the only one open 24hrs in Hong Kong.
Okay, and now the video! Hear it from the horse’s mouth (also contains one small clip of graphic raw/live food and a photo of a speciality small bird dish from mainland China).
Until next time, peace and love.
