Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone is having a great week. We are on our last (three) legs of our family vacation. Driving to Mount Jiuhua early tomorrow morning, then flying to Beijing in the evening. And then Mongolia for the weekend…where lamb is certainly on our dining agenda.
Our first stop after landing from NYC last week was Hong Kong. Two days there, then a few days split between Shen Zhen and Bin Zhou (in the Shangdong province). From Bin Zhou we flew to Hefei where we are currently visiting friends. I was worried we were trying to visit too many places but the short flight/driving distances to get to and from various cities were but a few hours at most. This particular trip is a mix of family holiday and business for my parents – we’ve been lucky to reap the benefits of both types of vacation.
Just wanted to share a few of my favourite snapshots from Hong Kong:
View from The Peak just before dark. We chose to go up on a cooler (aka cloudy) day to avoid the sun and heat. Stayed at The Peak until night when you could see all the city lights. Just beautiful. That’s Hong Kong closest to you and Kowloon across the water.
At Yung Kee, preserved duck eggs and ginger. My grandma loves this dish so much that she makes her own version back in Hawai’i. It’s a “must eat” on her every visit to Hong Kong. But keep in mind a visit to Yung Kee is not complete without…
Will have more to share soon…just need to download all the photos off the camera ^_^
