Hong Kong Causeway Bay Food

21 April 2019

Photos of the mundane

All my photos are mundane. Tonights are particularly mundane.
I could have just wandered down to Causeway bay, shot some photos of neon lit streets, gone to the food court and called it a night. But I have done that before on my numerous previous trips to Hong Kong. Not much has changed.
Instead I wandered down to Causeway bay, shot some photos of signs and rubbish, then went to the food court. This means that tonights photos can probably all be scrolled past and ignored!

On my journey I noticed that I am almost not in the minority. Around the central and admiralty areas there are more non Chinese than Chinese. Actually theres probably more Filipinos, but they are huddled together in a few hundred locations as you shall see, and as I have discussed before. Wait, I am part Chinese, not enough to change the results of this survey though.

Australian oranges are a joke. Australian fruit in general is a joke. Due to patriotic blind nationalism, we do not allow food imports for many many things, fruit included. If anyone tries to import fruit, people threaten to burn down the supermarket. Well Australian oranges are some kind of mutant species than cannot be peeled, and that have segments that do not pull apart. So when you try and eat one you get covered in juice and waste most of it. This orange on the other hand, the peel came off in one piece, the segments are all perfectly formed, and I did not even need to wash my hands afterwards. I have done this rant before, I will do it again. I have eaten 2 oranges today because they are so superior.

Here is somewhere heading up to mid levels. As usual, photographing a steep incline is almost pointless, but trust me, this part of Hong Kong is on the side of a steep hill. Most people know this, most people have taken a trip up the mid level escalators. Those are a terrible idea, walk you lazy bastards.

Here are some of the Filipino house servants on their day off. Potentially racist observation #1, they are not starving. Potentially racist observation #2, how come ethnically Chinese people living in Hong Kong do not hire mainland Chinese house servants? Is there a law against it?

The tall building lined up well in the gap between these old buildings. Ideally I would have used a tripod and taken 2 shots exposed differently and combined them, but that would take time and effort.

I have argued with numerous people, including a non Vietnamese waitress in a Vietnamese restaurant that it is pronounced FUH, not FOH, FOO, FAR or anything else other than FUH. Hong Kong agrees with me. If you dont agree you can get pho-cked.

For no apparent reason, Times Square mega mall is now completely Dumbo themed. Is there really a new Dumbo movie? Is Dumbo the new movie franchise since in the 49th Marvel movie out tomorrow everyone dies? I do not know, but Transformers is on Hong Kong TV right now as the Sunday night blockbuster special.

And for my final photo, dinner. How predictable. Remember when I was in Korea? That was a couple of weeks ago. Here in remembrance of that, is some Korean food. TTEOKKKBOKKI to be precise. With cabbage soaked in pigs blood, Soup made out of seaweed recovered from a hairy crab tank, and a few bits of old cucumber and carrot. Delicious.
