HONG KONG

Hello everyone :) While I have been taking a break from blog land, everyone is on my mind...so, just wanted to share what's going on for this short time. I took a short business trip to Hong Kong. As expected, Hong Kong is all all concrete buildings. From the moment one step off the plane and throughout the journey.  Here's a bright pink bus reminding us of the Year of the Rabbit for 2011. I was at this area called Shum Shui Po, which was a well known area for buying fabrics and all sewing notions. Seems like this huge area is dedicated to sewing industry as rows and rows of shops selling fabrics till no end.



Properties in Hong Kong has risen to an impossible level making it one of the most expensive place to live. Chinese from China with all their excess money have been buying everything there is to buy in Hong Kong.



I think if one had a small plot of land in Hong Kong, he/she can be a multi-millionaire easily now.  Even high rise apartments are so expensive making an average wage earner finding it close to impossible to buy a new flat or apartment.



At Tsim Tsa Shui, a main shopping area for all.







At a local famous pancake shop.



This is how the 'pancakes' looked like, very crispy and nice too.



Lots of wedding attended, this is just one of them.


While the monsoon season should be over, we still have lots of rain in the afternoon. I love the rain as it cools down our very hot weather, just not when I am stuck in the traffic jam anywhere in town.





Have a great week everyone :)
