Hong Kong Mong Kok Architecture

20 March 2010

Evening in Kowloon/Mong Kok

It was probably the most exciting walk I have ever been on. I caught the train to Mong Kok, and got out and was dazzled immediately. Walked around in a stupor caused by bright lights and lack of sleep. Eventually I decided to walk to the water, I didnt realise it was so far, it took well over an hour.
But when I got there, I was exactly in time for light show they put on from the buildings (see photos).
After that I walked along the water looking for food, its not easy, most places are huge round tables for parties of 10, at lunch I was denied a table for 1 as they were too busy. All places had lines of people except mcdonalds and I wasnt going there.
So I just kept walking, everything is connected underground or overground, I was lost the whole time but it doesnt matter, as long as you can find the nearest MTR station you can find your way home.
Eventually I found a mall around 9:30pm with some seats at a teppenyaki place, so thats where I had dinner.

Riding the MTR, the trains are very wide and fast, also im a giant in Hong Kong, and I knocked out about 6 people by accident so far by walking into them, I was probably looking up at stuff, but I never saw them, they all came off very much the worse for wear, one dude fell flat on his ass, I helped him up and he thanked me and apologised.

I found myself in pet street, the kittens were quite cool and chinese girls were busy trying to convince their boyfriends they needed one. I thought the fish shops were pretty interesting, there were lots of them, how long do fish live in a bag like that?

Mong Kok from above, theres pedestrian over passes all over the place, not just crossing the road but running up the middle of them as well, also most of the roads are closed except between midnight and 7am.

The light show, you cant see it but most of the big buildings shoot lasers across the sky, I put the camera on top of a phone booth to take these shots, no one else could reach that high and were all busy with their shitty digicams trying to use the flash or hand holding 5 second exposures.

Heres the teppenyaki place, you sit around the grill in case you dont know what teppenyaki is, I had pranws/squid/beef combo, it was not that great, but it was $11 Australian

I think today I set a new record for most photos taken in one day, hope you dont mind, a lot of them are similar to the one before it, but I was excited.
