Discover Hong Kong Tours | View of HK Island from TST Promenade

Love is....applying suntan lotion, another glorious view from Peak Road and where the rich folk live in the Mid Levels on Hong Kong Island.

 It has been a while since we had a sunny day

It has been a while since we had a sunny day

I am sick to bloody death of our weather,  we are now on day 11 of muggy, hot, rainy weather with smog... just plain nasty and depressing does not adequately cover it.

Still, feast your eyes on this, this is a sunny day view of Hong Kong Island from Kowloon, magnificent. 

 How sweet

How sweet

40+ years of marriage (I assume!) and she can still rub on the old suntan lotion... lovely setting at Deep Water Bay

 Oh my

Oh my

Looking down over Shouson Hill, Deep Water Bay, Repulse Bay, South Bay with Stanley in the distance

 Way beyond my pay grade

I have always wanted to live in Eva Court, the brown building to the right behind the road sign, 4,500sqft of luxury in a fairly decent location. 

One can dream. 

 Nice flamingo's

These birds are the only thing of any interest in Kowloon Park in TST, Kowloon

 Street touts - the most irritating people on the planet

Street touts - the most irritating people on the planet

On this tiny stretch of Nathan Road near the Holiday Inn Golden Mile Hotel in TST, Kowloon lurks 3 touts offering:-

  • dodgy suits
  • copy watches
  • copy handbags

I have counted 38 of them in a 4 block radius, they are all from Bangladesh and they only target white people! 

If they get someone to go to a shop / dodgy apartment they get HK$50, if a sale is made they get 2% of the total sale.

Horrible, horrible people who annoy everyone mainly because over a 100 yard stretch you can get accosted by 10 of them.

 But what does it mean?

A wannabe super hero? 

 Nice colour

As usual no tag or sign to indicate the species of plant / flower

Looks rather nice on a sunny day but has the worst lobby sofa's in the universe. 

 Lovely blue sky
