Hong Kong Star Ferry Causeway Bay Tsim Sha Tsui

4 September 2011

Causeway Bay

After a refreshing nap, it was time to head out at dusk and find some food and walk around. Nothing particularly amusing happened, I woke up feeling really tired but started to feel much better once I was out and about and drinking some pocari sweat.
Causeway Bay is on the Hong Kong Island side of Hong Kong, and where I stayed the first 2 times that I came here, Kowloon is generally more interesting, but everything changes so rapidly.

The harvest festival moon cake hysteria is in full swing. I see moon cakes in my future since apparently its a much bigger deal in Korea than it is here.
Still, every shop has removed most of their regular stock to sell moon cakes, what a moon cake is exactly I am unsure, since they seem to come in sweet (black sesame, red bean, custard) and savory (dried fish, pickled vegetables). I have also seen Ice cream versions, chocolate versions and ones you give your dog.

Due to a prediction of many moon cakes in my future, I had a small dinner. This was listed as the healthy option at the Indian place (yes, I will eat Indian food in Hong Kong).
I dont know how dough fried in ghee stuffed with lamb can be healthy, but it was quite delicious none the less.

Each time I come here I keep an eye on this construction site near the ferry pier. It doesnt seem to be moving with the speed that I have come to expect. During my site visit tomorrow, heads will roll.

Back on the Tsim Sha Tsui side where my Hotel is, and I decided to take photos of people taking photos. Its clearer here than it has been in my previous visits, but still smog laden.

Leaving my moon cake purchase to a place near the hotel resulted in getting fruit instead. They only had huge decorative tins full of them and I wanted just 1. Plus all the writing was in Chinese only, so I could have been getting cake stuffed with kim chi.
