People talk a lot about how great HK is for shopping. Honestly, before I went, I really didn't believe them. I thought that it was probably only good for people who love the high-end brand-name type of stuff. Boy was I wrong. HK is not a perfect city, but the two things it does have going for it are shopping and food. We ended up getting all our baby needs (crib, high chair, clothes, etc..) for around $200. It would have been more than double that in Korea!
Ok, so now on to the food. I absolutely loved it there! Sure, a lot of restaurants don't have english on the menu, but when the food is this good and cheap, who needs english? I loved the smells and taste of the HK Chinese food. It's much different than the stuff in the North - not near as greasy.
One thing that kind of threw me was... what I found in a local supermarket. Whenever we go oveseas, Joo and I always love to check out the markets and bring home cool suaces and such. This time though, something jumped up at me.
Frogs! That's right, these little toady fellows were up for sale. So, what did I do?? ...
Yup, you guessed it, I ate 'em!
And what HK trip would be complete without going up to "the peak" and looking out over the city... actually, it got cloudy, so instead I hung with my main man Bruce.
