Bustling Hong Kong

After being in quiet little Scandinavia it feels great to be back in this place so full of life! Thank you Ophelia & Joanne for the awesome dinner at 1881 Heritage! It's such a coincident that you also happened to be in Hong Kong this weekend Kevin! Just 2 weeks ago we were in Berlin! Was fun to crash a Hong Kong bachelor party in Karaoke, hadn't been for a long time! On Sunday half of Manila is sitting in the streets, it's the only day of the week the nannys have the day off. There are thousands and thousands of them! You will not see anything like this elsewhere. It's like Occupy Central but lasting only 1 day.

The last couple of years I've come to Hong Kong it has always been sunny and nice, now I was out of luck with the weather. Mist, some rain and no sun for the whole week. But it's so much warmer than -10 like it was back home! It's kind of like a Swedish summer here...Was starving after the flight so took a taxi straight Tim Ho Wan for worlds best Dimsum! This restaurant has a Michelin Star but you only end up paying around 15 euro for a fantastic lunch!

Finally back at this wonderful island 
Nathan Road 
 Go ahead, shout

If you don't wanna take the taxi, bus or subway across then use the boat. Moves all day morning until late

 Michelin Star dimsum! Belongs to my TOP 10 restaurants I ever been to. And it's very affordable too! If you don't come here while in Hong Kong you miss out on some amazing food 
 Pork BBQ buns, the signature. Was too hungry so finished up the turnip cakes. Egg cake also got a munch of itself 
 Harbour View 
 Love these small food stalls that make fresh juices and other snacks on the spot for take-away
 Mongkok by night 
 Been raining the whole week and it's below, not the warmest weather to swim in but refreshing
 Thanks for the awesome dinner, your all lovely hosts Joanne, Ophelia, Fiona & Ray 
Mega crab, yumyum

 Mongkok, Nathan Road 
 Different kind of tacos and some local HK craf beer to get a weekend started 
 At rush hours...squeeze in! 
 Crashed a bachelor party, haven't been at a karaoke for a while
 Saturday night was raining heavily, LKF wasn't as packed as usually.
 A whole wall of mirrors 
 Our little minicrib, hotels in Hong Kong are really expensive...This tiny room is close to 100 euro
 Dubble decker tram, I don't know anywhere else to find one

 We found a club street, without clubs 
Some domestic workers?
