December 11 snapshots
I had roamed in and around Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon few hours ago. It’s good to be in the center of entertainment, shopping, and financial district. It’s near to almost everything and anything. As depicted in some of the most current snapshots:
(a) In Kowloon, literally the night is so young. I feel so at home. The moment I stepped in the Immigration I felt like I belong here. Heehee. Maybe, because sometimes I look like them. Just sometimes.
(b) It’s cold here and I enjoyed observing the fashionistas.
(c) I had roasted goose, crispy suckling pig and prawn noodles in Guangdong Barbecue Restaurant (which is actually not the barbecue type resto). It took half an hour for them to get my order, only the Manager knows how to speak English. Unbelievable. It’s making the process inefficient.
(d) More than enjoying the night market, I enthusiastically scouted the food hubs (in Tsim Shat Sui area only). Lots of, including Mc Donald’s, Pizza Hut and KFC.
(e) Discounts in shopping flood. Several interesting stuff scouted but I didn’t buy. Yet. Too early.
(f) Lots of kooky store names, “Hair Peace, etc.” There’s this cute store which sells various stuff. The one wherein my holding of christmas ball was taken. I think I’ll be back there.
(g) I had Twilight relapse again. Saw a store called Bella, at the corner of Hau Foos Street (I almost read it as Forks Street. Ack!). On the other hand, I’m reminded of my favorite character (Snoopy) when I was younger when I saw Charlie Brown Cafe.
(h) Fresh fruits are around as well as street food like chicken intestines, pirated stuff (especially DVDs), etc. Reminds me much of the Philippines.
(i) Our sidetrip is per ‘do it your way’ basis. Hence, nothing is fixed. But of course, we have plans including contingency planning. Nerds.
(j) Also in the collage are snapshots of Christmas trees in Dubai and Hong Kong Airport (plus the fresh poinsettias and little pine trees).

That would be all for now. After uploading some photos taken from my camphone, I noticed this one. Well,
(a) Looks like she doesn’t like me. But she was nice to me, I thought.
(b) I don’t know her, by the way and anyway.
(c) Maybe she doesn’t particularly like that I was drinking and she was not.
(d) Whatdaheck (kidding!). I think this photo is candid and funny.
I’m still adjusting with the four-hour time difference with UAE. I’m still hyperactive. Hence, this post. But I’m signing off in a while. I’ll try to catch up with bloghopping. 🙂 Happy weekend, everyone!
