taking a break

I like living, in Shenzhen, don’t get me wrong, but sometimes I just need a break. I prefer just to stay in my apartment sometimes because there are just too many crowds.  I usually get a bit worn down from work this time of the year, and when I’m tired, cultural differences turn into huge annoyances for me.

I decided to head into Hong Kong for a day just to relax. Granted, there are huge crowds there as well, but being there many times in the summer as a kid, I just find something familiar and homey about it.  I trotted around SoHo, one of my favourite places on the island side (Yau Ma Tei is a close second in the Kowloon side) and instantly felt better. I wanted to wander around  and take more photos of  places and people, but it was too darn hot (damn humidity!).Plus climbing up and down hills/stairs was killing me. I wished I walked a block down and took the escalators.

If you are in the central area and are looking for cheap eats, try some of the tea shops along wellington road, or there is this great place called ‘Dumpling Yuan’ where you can eat for about 25 HKD.

Some random snapshots of the day. Not my best work, I know.
