Hong Kong Snapshots

Thursday Travels is a weekly column featuring sights and sounds from my wanderlust adventures. Come, fly with me, and we’ll explore strange cultures, exotic eats and everything in-between.

These are some pictures taken in Hong Kong months ago. I love visiting the local markets to observe the hustle and bustle of everyday life. As for those Paul Lafayet macarons, I definitely need to have one of each flavour right now!

On a side note, I’ll be away for nearly two weeks, so please follow me on Instagram to see how I do the kangaroo hop down Great Ocean Road. Look ma, no hands!

Sheung Wan: Graffiti Art

In Singapore, we hardly see any graffiti around, except the commissioned ones at Haji Lane. Perhaps that’s why I’m so easily drawn to those overseas. Here are some I’d spotted in Sheung Wan, Hong Kong.

Sheung Wan: The Old, the New & the Arty

Sheung Wan is a neighbourhood in transition — from old Chinese temples to glittery new cafes, antique collectibles to designer goods. Just follow the white rabbit and you’d find yourself in a wonderland for the inquisitive traveller. Note that many shops and cafes here accept cash only.

Hong Kong: Po’s Atelier

The last of my vacation pennies were spent on this croissant from Po’s Atelier. There was no seating area, so I munched as I walked, leaving a trail of delicious buttery flakes along the alleys of Sheung Wan. Photos of this delightful neighbourhood will be posted next week. Stay tuned!

別被它的店名給騙了,澳洲牛奶公司可是間典型的茶餐廳,點餐除了要快和準,用餐也不能慢吞吞。由於酒店只隔了一條街,所以我們一大清早就來了,不用排隊真好。必點招牌是西煎雙蛋,此外熱奶也很鮮甜。下次我要嘗嘗他們的燉鮮奶喇!

澳洲牛奶公司
佐敦白加士街47號地下
