|Hong Kong in foggy day|
The most memorable visit was during new-year celebration when my friend Anyes was still based in Hong Kong. At that time, I landed in Chek Lap Kok Airport. She arranged sightseeing to Victoria Peak, Kowloon Harbor, and trip to Shenzen, the border with China.
Anyes is no longer living in Hong Kong. Memory remains. Thanks to her, I was introduced to some of her friends. Wenny and I become friends. She and her husband visited us in Ho Chi Minh City a few months ago.
What I remember about Kowloon is the Harbor. However, Wenny took me to Lai Chi Kok MTR station Exit C. It was good to beat the crowd and arrive early at HK Industrial Center. This is the place for the wholesalers. Most clothes seems to be influenced by the Korean and Japanese fashion style-J

Second snack was something like fish cake ball satay. Ini juga sedap….
In hot summer day, fresh iced tea is good but it becomes perfect with Gong Cha iced milk tea with brown jelly…
|Voila! That's my Gong Cha Ice Milk Tea with Brown Jelly|
Third snack or late lunch was Ketupat Sayur at Warung Chandra in Causeway Bay… So Indonesian…. We shared one portion for two, good excuse! It is a little bit of spicy vegetable soup with chicken curry, beef rendang, tofu, kerupuk (crackers) and rice cake.
However, in this vibrant/vivid/vigorous place, there are a few tranquil places. One of them is my favorite place i.e. The Peak.

After having walked around Peak Galleria, Peak Tower and the public viewing area, I sat in a serene corner at Pacific Coffee. Sitting by the window, having a cup of hot cappuccino, being in a windy weather in foggy romantic afternoon at the Peak, looking down at foggy Hong Kong, daydreams continues….
