a crispy bit ,second step

The first night was not that good, because the hotel reservation had been overbooked...

We repacked and left our packs at front desk , then went out for our Hong Kong experience....

In the lately morning , we enjoyed good coffee and readed the map at coffee shop , we made today's travel plan and found us a restaurant for dim sum  ...

Today is Harbour day....AND BEFORE harbour tour... oh YA!!! DIM SUM TIME...

but WHERE? oops, i realized this tiny but serious problem in the next second...Basically , Simon was totally in the Alice world, he can not read the chinese, and have no idea about the english  words which be transliterated form Cantonese or Mandarin.. well, we picked a building at random,then went into and up stairs .

ok.. ok... cool bear and wild Panda
... of course, rush past the weird sellers of fake stuff. We followed the rule No.1 ,follow the consumer...hahaha..soon,we were in the "Jade Garden" . The decoration of Jade Garden is very elegant and valuable by chinese style as its name.... it not that noisy ,vulgar as i think as an old style tea house...its  complete different type of style ....The food was fantastic... the dessert was super great....well, the price was a bit higher yet worth it...It was Bear's first meet with local dim sum at Hong Kong....the menu ,of course , it a bit different with the menu of  EU. There's no sesame toast on the menu but deep fry WunTun...hahaha....i knew that it still was  a food adventure to Simon.  He was wondering the stuff inside the various  dumplings .
the commute
..hahahaha.....well, dear, i have to tell you ... In Asia, in normal, we have at least 2 different kind of meat in a dinner.... so..  it was not weird that we had shrimps dumpling,pork shaomai with crab egg , beef dumpling ....etc.

Soon, two dim sum killers LIMPED out of the restaurant with full stomach...Next stop... Satr Ferry...oh..i was sleepy..grrrrrrrrrrrrr

Hey, Panda, DO NOT FALL IN ASLEEP... Simon sat in fornt of me and told .

OOPS!!! AGAIN...... i nodded. 

Of course, Star ferry was our first and only choice for harbour tour. It is a historical and quite nice company(compare with turbo jet)...

I look up to the sky... nmm.... it still a bit smog but not that cloudy ...thought we would have a nice journey by boat today.

the sympol of the light

We would do a loop along the victoria harbour. The cruise  starts  at Tsim Sha Tsui,sweeps pass the Central ,Wan Chai,Causeway Bay,North Point..etc, the most popular landmarks at Hong Kong.I took a seat at the open-air deck ,enjoyed  the skyline of Hong Kong and Hill in sea breeze, soon , i found a tiny smile on bear's face  ,hahaha... something caught his eye, he was busy pushing shutter to get the Helicopter shot... hahaha, bear also mad on FLIGHT and FLY ... It was a nice afternoon.... and we decided to go to see the show " A symphony of light " at night ,which is must -see event on  any tourist of Hong Kong ....hohoho....

Having satay at Good Satay Restaurant was a funny experience.

yes.. it is already 2230
...we caught its by  followed the travel guide... as the most shops at Hong Kong , the satay house was  located in a building , a very tiny size of flat yet  full of everything  inside..... Simon only had 6 sticks  of satay for dinner...hahaha.. i am a cookie monster this time...hahaha.."me eat cookie!"..... "Om nom nom nom" ....

A symphony of light was a very nice show..... Staying  at  waterfront at night ,waitng the show,its a bit chilly . It was very graet i had a Scottish  shelter with me...hahaha....WOW.... the show was comming ....the show consists  the coloured lights and lasers which be offered by over than 40 buildings on both sides of harbour ,the searchlights form somewhere , the syn chronized music, and the story of Hong Kong .. what a nice show...

After coffee in  a warm ,cosy coffee shop, we back to the hotel ....

On the way to hotel, Simon was so surprised that  the whole city was still bustling and populous....hahaha...welcome the Asia....
