Hong Kong Random [Aug. 7th, 2008|12:40 pm]

I should be posting pictures from my two Japan trips last month, or from Texas in June, or those four fabulous days in Ghana. But I just got back yesterday from Hong Kong, so here's some of that. I've been to Hong Kong before, but didn't take a proper camera.

It was warm and rainy and pleasant. Last time I did all the sightseeing (Victoria Peak, antique district, night markets..) so this time I just had good local food and went shopping. At Toys R Us. And a grocery store. Hey, Muyan! Hong Kong has Freshness Burger! And chu-hi!














Bought these for the two little katoributa stickers.

Standby tonight. Fingers crossed for something easy... hoping for an India flight, for the food.

The nicest things are generally true.

I like the entire set, but the first photo was my favorite.

Freshness Burger!? I LOVE Freshness Burger!!

The flagship Freshness Burger store is like a five-minute walk from my house!

I did! Who knew it was that simple?

(What I actually purchased was "Lychee Jolly Shandy." It was .5% alcohol and it tasted goooood.)

Yummm.. Loofah - it exfoliates and tastes great in stir fry.

See, I couldn't figure that out. They speak English in Hong Kong, so I'm thinking that when they say they'll feed you "loofah," they mean it. But how? Have you ever tasted a loofah? Is it better than it sounds??

My colleague eating at the restaurant with me was highly amused that I spotted the "loofah" sign, and even more amused that a pilot with us didn't know what a loofah was, and needed us to explain to him why it was funny.

My mom has grown them in her garden in the past. I assume parts are edible before it dries into the skin scraping thingy people keep in the shower.

Shouldn't it be "Drink Beer and Enjoy Life?" LOL
