I was working in my suit and tie. Not uncommon in my current assignment. Our light panel case had some particularly powerful velcro holding it together. When I bent down to get the LED lights out of the case, the velcro grabbed my tie. Destroyed. I went through three ties that day. I needed a new tie, like, NOW. My AroundMe app told me I could buy a new tie .57 miles from my current location. I took off walking. I never made it to the store AroundMe suggested. I found a tie shop within a quarter mile. In Hong Kong, much like L.A. or New York, you can buy just about anything, at just about anytime. The city never slept, at least, while I was awake, which was most of the time.
My last post from Hong Kong is dedicated to Commerce. Fortunately for me, I now have several new ties.
If you know where to look, you can buy just about anything. You just have to carry it home because there is not room for cars on this street.
Happy really big Chinese New Year from H & M.
HIGH end product placement, Hong Kong style.
Real, or knockoffs. You can buy them both in Hong Kong.
Fashion doesn’t get any higher than in the high rise Hong Kong malls.
In one of the electronics capitals of the world, Canon and Nikon battle for supremacy. I took this photo with the 5D mkiii.
If you’re in Hong Kong, you should definitely try the dumplings. They’re Pro.
You can see the meat, hanging out in the open on almost every street corner. You can smell the meat, everywhere else.
You can smell them before you can see them. This sign was perfect, the fish were definitely not fresh.
While waiting for customers, a shopkeeper checks her device.
You can trust him. He knows what all that stuff is.
I don’t know what it is, but it better be good, because it’s not cheap (unless you know the exchange rate:).
Not sure what it is, but they said it was good in soup.
If they started moving, I’d think I was on Kronos (Qo’noS).
These are not mushrooms. They put them in soup. When you see them in your soup, don’t ask, it’s better not to know.
In Hong Kong, even the grains are color coordinated.
Perhaps she needs some new customers, or just some customers.
Negotiating is a fine art at the street market’s in Hong Kong.
I’ve been to some parts of the world where they didn’t have them; however, it is, I must admit, one of my goals to eat at McDonald’s in every country in the world that does.
Delivered hot and ready just about anywhere in Hong Kong.
Every neighborhood street corner has them. I just want to know if they have free slurpees on July 11.
They sell by the meter, and, the price is right.
To live, work, eat and sleep in small spaces.
Two brands control most of the vices throughout the world.
Hong Kong moves 24/7. Some of the best deals are available at the night market.
