Travel Journal: Hongkong, Jan 13, 2010

I wandered some more around Kowloon sidestreets in and around Nathan Road. Bought a box of Chinese pastries - hopia. As I wound myself back to the ship, I passed through Star City again, almost bought several exquisite Chinese ceramics (pass!) and eventually bought a (chipped) tea cup with a built-in strainer, a blue and white commercial-grade thing. Then, not feeling hungry at all, but being a foodie, I went up to the 4th floor to the Jade Garden restaurant for some dimsum. As I was seated on the linened table, it struck me suddenly: this was the dimsum restaurant that I had visited in 1975 during the Yamaha Festival. It was just down the road from the Sheraton, and they used to have pushcarts before. Now, everything is ordered a la carte. The shrimp siomai. the beef siopao, the shark's fin soup and the long, slender spring rolls were delicious. I went back to the ship, sated and several dollars poorer but richer and happier.

  1. Loving the self involves faith and trust and belief in who you are, and a willingness to take action upon it.

  2. If you kin see de light at daybreak, you don't keer if you die at dusk. It's so many people never seen de light at all.
