2nd day of Hong Kong is pretty much Touristy
and some knowledges of Hong Kong’s Culture.
I think Hong Kong culture reflect very closely to their design and how chinese style and culture is brought out from design time to time. I think they appreciate chinese characters alot, and we get to see all chinese character all over Hong Kong. True enough, they speak canto more than any other thing. According to my cousin’s, this is the first year they start to taught English in English, last year my niece study English via Canto.
But design is not only inspiration but also, something relate to your daily life, the culture, your character and every other thing. True enough, my design is always on the safe zone, and it does relate how SAFE i am in everything. And, I have a wide wide range to explore, be it my design skill or any other thing. My friend have really done a great job by guiding me along the way, telling me where i should improve and explore as well. i really very thankful, despite, there’s some little argument along the way, but its a sincere one.
Even friends’ name wasn’t mentioned here, you know, I do cherish and appreciate a lot no matter what :)

And, we parted, left yangru ron teng and me heading over to meet my cousin. together with his friend, we went around Lan Guai Fang for a short experience, short walk. It wasn’t how I thought or expected. Its actually very alike to Holland Village’s pub scene. Super lots of angmohs/foreigners!
i’m going to find HJ/YS traits…. right here. LOL!
#four of us – a proof of us in lang guai fang.
# with more people. but can’t justify the CROWD that was there!
#different view, but still not very wonderful LOL!
So, we settle at some place where there’s seat, and my cousin did the call :) The funniest part is my cousin asking me if I wanted to drink anything yet, I thought him ‘oh coke’ LOL! He asked if I’m sure before he placed the order keke. While the rest drink a little, and we snacked! :D
#my cousin say i take a pic with the beer and post it up! keke!!!
#The fries and some really special chicken boney thingy! OMG it’s really nice. Rather hard for me to say certain chicken stuff that is really nice, but this is one of the case where I must say THIS IS REALLY GOOD! :)
#with cousin :)
#MCM in Hong Kong.
My cousin actually paid for the entire pub-ing experience. And, also invited my colleagues and friends for tmr seafood dinner as well! :) I really very thankful to my cousin for making my HK trip even a wonderful one. He also shared lot of experience with us, be it the standard of living and everything a Singaporean might be curious about. I didn’t know so much about it, until Yangru asked! I mean, I don’t KPO my cousin’s financial because we are one family. The blood that runs in us is so much important than any other thing. And, I really happy that I went for my ancestor trip in 2008 (more about the trip here), that keeps us really contact till now! :)
And we, the family, wished that this bonding will last till even we are not around.
so, after spending long hour outside, headed back.. AND…
#and of cos, mask is not a miss, beauty sleep with pretty face :P (9GAG rainbow vomit!)
