Same Hong Kong [May. 19th, 2010|09:45 am]

I got called out on standby to go to Hong Kong ("At Least It's Hong Kong") and I basically did the same thing I always do in Hong Kong: Wander around, eat, buy toys, and take pictures. Here are the pictures.

























Wandering around Hong Kong on foot is made much easier by the Central-Mid-Levels escalators, the "longest outdoor covered escalator system in the world." Yet somehow I still managed to exhaust myself when I was going to have to work on my feet all night. Why do I always do that? Spend hours walking unnecessarily, tiring my muscles and blistering my feet, when I have to stand around in bad shoes the entire flight back?


ETA: This is the toy I bought.

Thank you! Please be welcome to my facebook though I tend to post a lot of links-- I think most people hide me in their feeds. I'm not offended. :)

I wouldn't hide you! Oh, but please hide my game notifications so I don't annoy you. :)

Hah! Hah! Man too many people don't play the popular games you know. And understandably so, I play only two and get annoyed when I get notifications from the other equally popular games. It is like when I was a smoker I used to get irritated by smoke from someone else's cigarette;-)

PS: We too just loved Hong Kong, especially the girls. Lovely place to wander around.

We were there for 8 days, and after coming back the girls were so satisfied that they didn't bother us with any requests for anything. Otherwise the little one at least will be asking for something or the other.

Excellent photos! Always wanted to go to HK -- still stuck here. :-/

You should take more photos when you're out and about.

Would be fun to take a photo trip with our mutual friends, especially someplace far away like HK (but nearby places should be done, too).

And, okay!

July or August was the idea, yes. I think a long weekend there would be all sorts of fun. And flights aren't that expensive, even for those of us not working for an airline.

Whoa, I didn't know about that! Had to look it up and found this: http://www.monstersandcritics.com/news/asiapacific/news/article_1554136.php/Police-called-to-investigate-female-nudes-at-Hong-Kong-exhibition. I didn't see any police, but I was only standing there for about 20 seconds.
