Tossing coins into the mouth of the fish of prosperity, I do love a good cupcake and illegal structures in Tsuen Wan
This is a serious crab and this was one of the smaller ones this chap was checking into the "death" tank, I get the willies just thinking about 100 of them landing on the beach at Repulse Bay and terrorising people sun bathing... there is a movie script here... possible titles:-
- The Crab and I
- The King and I
- The Silence of the Crabs
- One Flew over the Crabs Nest
- The Alaskan King Crab Diaries
- Snow White and the Seven Crabs
- Mutant Crab
- Crab Story
- The King Crab Rises
- A Nightmare on Crab Street
- Crab Chronicles
- Portrait of a Killer Crab
- Teenage Mutant Ninja Crabs
- Jurassic Park 378 - the return of the crabs
- King Crab!
- Zombies v King Crabs
- Killer Claws!
- Lord of the Rings - the return of the King Crab
You get the idea,
I am adding this post to my spiders, snakes and bugs category, actually it is just a big bug that thinks it's a spider
I was mooching about in the K11 Mall in TST, Kowloon and I was somewhat taken aback by the cupcake shop, they looked delicious and I will be returning
This is the Fish of Prosperity at the Lifeguards Clubhouse Complex at Repulse Bay Beach - the challenge is to throw a coin into the mouth of the fish (for luck) if you look closely you can see a coin (near one of the fish whiskers) heading towards the mouth of the fish. This is FUN!
Our Government encourages you to snitch on your neighbours if you suspect them to have added illegal structures to their dwelling, no chance of that happening here, I bet every balcony in the whole complex is an illegal structure.
This apartment complex is located in Tsuen Wan in the NT, near to Nina Tower
Totally out of place in Tsuen Wan - this is one of our tallest and most impressive buildings and houses a Hotel that appeals to the Mainland Chinese Tourist, who if they so desire can play a spot of croquet in the park over the road. I kid you not, there is an actual grass croquet "pitch" you can book through the park authorities.
Again, the surprise of seeing a croquet pitch is as surprising as finding an alien sat on your toilet plucking it's eyebrows.
I revisited the site of one of my favourite iconic images, the Tsuen Wan sunset, March 2011, today it was grim, tossing it down.
Thanks to "K" for giving me a reason to return here.
That would be the yellow fish in the background, the "test" of tossing a coin into it's mouth brings out the best and the worst in people and it is NOT as easy as it looks.
Handy tip no. 1 - check the wind speed
Handy tip no. 2 - use a HK$5 coin
Handy tip no. 3 - be the ball.
Handy tip no. 4 - never trust people wearing bin bags.
The colour version of this image is jolly nice as well. this huge (and I mean huge) tile mosaic is on display on the top floor of the Jumbo Kingdom Floating Restaurant in Aberdeen Harbour.
I do personal walking tours around Hong Kong, I am on the streets every day and I have a somewhat interesting perspective of this wonderful city I have called my home for 37 years. My private walking tours are perfect for visitors who want a detailed overview of Hong Kong prior to exploring on their own and for people who are only here for a day or two who want to make the most of their limited time here.
Many clients book me for their first full day in Hong Kong, they get to see the best that Hong Kong has to offer + a crash course on our wonderful public transport system and then they go exploring for the rest of their stay armed with step by step instructions and recommendations from me....
...oh, and if you book a tour then you are booking a tour with me, I do not employ other guides.
