HK -Shots of Life (The Traumatic Post-Holiday Blues)May 24, 2011 | 1,651 views
#1 – Deanie Ip (Yip Tak Han in Cantonese) is a Cantopop singer and Chinese actress in Hong Kong.
#2 – Strangers share tables, chairs, and nothing short of food in hole in a wall establishments all over Hong Kong.
#3 – Business booms early in the morning, when the whole city still sleeps in.
#4 – Vagrant fishing on a desolate pier near to the famous Tsing Ma bridge.
#5 – Short of pouring the contents all over the counter, the officers in white were nothing more than … a nuisance on a bright, sunny day.
#6 – At least he picked his spot. By not aiming at someone’s prized tyre.
#7 – Insipid canine on a scorching afternoon in Stanley (known as ‘Chek Chue’ in Cantonese)
#8 – Strangers in close proximity, yet absolutely no connection. Aside from the common bonding through the desire to satiate the hunger pangs.
#9 – This lady offered (or coerced) to share her table with the menacing foursome. She was deep in thoughts, and guess which page of the daily was her eyes fixed upon?
#10 – An absolute performer. The CRANE stance on a beautiful evening on the way to the Mount Fortress in Macau.
Back from a considerably long holiday to Hong Kong and Macau. Suffice to say, aside from darker a few shades and piling on a few pounds, the experience was nothing short of … exhilarating. In every sense of the word.
Tune in for more posts (mostly food-related, obviously) in the coming days. For now, I had better recoup my precious beauty sleeps, realign these old creaking bones and do some damage control; calorie-wise.
Happy Midweek people! Bet you’re fuming now knowing that Motormouth starts his weekday blues on a Wednesday instead of the usual Monday huh? 🙂
