I was back to Hong Kong in August again. Once again, my exploration time started.
It was the first time that I took pictures of the food on the plane. I have the fried vermicelli with honey glazed pork. The other option for breakfast was omelette.
Soon, I arrived at Hong Kong. Very Quickly after I have checked in, I can’t wait to start my day in Hong Kong. Since it was around lunch time, I needed food. I checked out Kam’s Roasted Goose at Wan Chai.
After lunch, I popped by Stone Nullah Lane to pay a visit to the famous Blue House and some historical sites in that area.
The Blue House is a building, till this day is with occupancy. There are some interesting shops. The first was the Traditional Chinese Medicine Clinic.
And next, I saw the Hong Kong House of Stories.
I left my “footprint” in the House as well.
Walked a little further, saw the Stone Nullah Lane Park and next to it, is the Pak Tai Temple.
Then I walked towards the direction of Sheung Wan, passed by Wan Chai Post Office.
Stopped by Caffe Habitu for Tea and enjoyed a piece of cake.
Next, headed for Hong Kong Monetary Museum at Level 55 of IFC Office Tower 2. My intention wasn’t to understand the history but more for the view. I found out that it has very scenic view of Hong Kong from the museum.
The lift lobby is at the ground floor. Getting into the museum is free but you need to exchange for an entry pass at the lobby using a photo ID.
Look at the view. It was indeed great. A tip, it is better to go in the morning as the museum is facing West. So when in the afternoon, the sun will shine into the museum and you won’t be able to capture good photos of the view.
Once I was done with the photo taking, I went to PMQ. PMQ is a very interesting place with lots of small shops selling some very unique, artisty items. There are two blocks, parallel to each other with a link joining to each other at level 4. PMQ occupied the site of an historical building. For more information, click here.
There was a promotion, giving away some what I called the Panda Bear Stickers. If you were aware, in July, there was thousands of Mache Paper Panda Bears visiting all parts of Hong Kong and finally took rest at PMQ. This was a continuation of the activity after the Panda Bears have returned “home”.
It was dinner time and I went La Marmite Bistrot for a French 3-course dinner before heading back to hotel for a good night rest, to prepare to get back to work on the weekend with hectic work scheudle.
