"Traveling leaves you speechless. Then you turn into a storyteller." -Ibn Battuta
及所不欲，勿施于猫。First ever trip to HongKong and never would I have expected to see colourful buildings & criss-crossed overhead wires from operating trams. Totally reminded me of Shanghai (夜上海) back in the 19th century.
Simple brunch before a full day out shopping and hustling through the vibrant city. Hustling was always an imaginative word till we realized how being elbowed by every passerby seemed normal in Hong Kong. #elbows

Rainy Saturday morning where pedestrians slowed down their pace and walked more gracefully than usual.
Stood at the exit of the undergroud train station thinking about where to stopover next.
People always tell me how impatient and rude Hongkees can be.
Put myself in their shoes and realized how much pressure they were living under.
Dealing with limited space, atrocious cost of living and sustaining in such a rat race isn't easy.
Blended in like a Hongkee for a day.
All I have to say is that, dear all, you have my respect.
If you haven't seen Symphony of Lights at Victoria Harbour, please save yourself some time. Go food hunting. Have a bowl of wantan noodles or go window shopping instead. You know me, you now I am constantly trying to find the good in everything in life. But this was an utter disappointment if you may. However, things could change and perhaps it's a totally different story months later. Still leaving my mind open :)
At this point, I've had my bblackbox canvas backpack on for more than 14 hours. [Bag review coming up soon] Amazing travel backpack but the weight and duration it sat on my shoulders far exceeded what my frame could handle. We were so exhausted when it hit dawn. Rain showered upon us. We stood there like till it hit 8:00pm like kids waiting for the candy store to open.

Have you been to Hong Kong?
