Scenes from around HK

I haven't posted in a while because Kelly and I have moved into our new place and we don't have internet yet. Or TV. I'm dying inside. Here's what we've been up to instead of watching sweet Asian game shows:

This is a view of Kowloon across the harbor from the IFC building. They have a big mall at IFC with Armani, Fendi, Gucci, etc. I don't shop there, but I am planning a trip to the mainland soon to visit the Wal-Mart in Shenzhen.

After cruising through the mall, we took the Star Ferry over to Kowloon, then the metro to Mong Kok. The metro over there can get a little hairy.

The Ladies' Market is located along one long street in Mong Kok, and specializes in t-shirts ("The Beatils - Through the Years" was my favorite), "copy bags" (designer knock-offs), and boxer shorts patterned after elephants with strategically placed trunks. Many treasures are to be had here.

After much shopping, and the purchase of a sweet magnet that says "You Are My Love My Angle Please Do Not Treat Me Like Potato", we took the Star Ferry back across the harbor. We timed it just right, so we could see 8:00 light show from the water.

We then retired to our favorite bar (on top of Pier 3) and drank buckets of beer until the aforementioned magnet started to make sense.

  1. This whole Hong Kong thing is just strange. Why is there no Nutella in your fridge?
