A day documented in snapshots: Hong Kong, day 2

Day 2 Hong Kong 003

Bakeries and patisseries are rife in Hong Kong. Note to self: try an egg tart (bottom middle cake).

To be honest, I’d eat any of them!!!!


Day 2 Hong Kong 004

A street in Fortress Hill.

Day 2 Hong Kong 009

Advertising Halloween, Hong Kong Style, Laforet Shopping Centre (a less than conventional approach to advertising a scary holiday).

Day 2 Hong Kong 012

My travel companion pandering to the awkward vegetarian

Day 2 Hong Kong 017

Sichuan style noodle soup (dam dam mein), steamed vegetable dumplings, dipping sauce and at the front of the photo…

Day 2 Hong Kong 019

Pan fried spinach buns (san jin bao). Despite initial scepticism (I thought nothing could beat noodles), these are unbelievably delicious and just a bit addictive!

Day 2 Hong Kong 023

From Central to Causeway, politics permeating.

Day 2 Hong Kong 027

Most efficient metro system? My travel companion wanted me to say “simplicity and efficiency absent from London underground”. Which might be true, but nothing beats the Metropolitan line (childhood bias).

Day 2 Hong Kong 034

Hong Kong mini-bus

Day 2 Hong Kong 037

First scenic (ish) shot of Hong Kong. The harbour in the background, skyscrapers in the foreground.

Thanks to “no name travel companion” for making the cheesiest caption suggestions ever (and since I lack that level of wit, I had to reject them or my envy would overwhelm me).

Hope you enjoyed this slightly different (to my usual essays) blog post!
