A Travellerspoint blog

a long time ago in a land called Happy Valley. . .

lived an feisty little Shanghainese girl (who I now call Mom.) So we had a great time in Hong Kong, staying on the Kowloon side in Tsim Sha Shui. I still can't pronouce it properly. It rained almost every day, but remained sunny most afternoons. We mostly got around by airconditioned bus anyway. I'd been there with my friends before, but never with Mom. It was funny to see her constantly commenting about all the new buildings and how in the 60s it would take all day to travel the distance you can now traverse in 10 minutes.

Stuff we visited:
Happy Valley (where mom grew up)
Aberdeen Fishing Village
Stanley Beach (market was disappointing)
Victoria Peak
Jackie Chan's house (just drove by)
IM Pei's Bank of China building
Lan Kwai Fong
Wynn Hotel in Macau

Also had a chance to catch up with Autie Darling, my cousins Carolina and Stella, and of course Anastasia (a.k.a. Baby).
