Victoria Peak, Hong Kong

After spending almost an hour atop Victoria Peak late at night and taking endless photos on what were two weeks of exhausting go-go-go travelling (7 cities in 14 days), I wearily headed down to the street level where I could take the funicular back down to Hong Kong and the subway beneath the harbour and back to my hotel in Kowloon.

I didn't notice this on the way up. I'm really not sure how I missed it. Maybe I was too focused on getting to the top of the peak before it got too dark. I almost missed this on the way down too because I was looking down at the LCD screen to review my shots. I finally noticed when I was quickly nearing the bottom of the escalators and had just enough time to get off 3 quick shots. This was the best one and without people in it.

Day 3 breakfast @ ???????? Tin Ho Wan Dim Sum Specialty Shop. This eatery is a relatively new kid on the block when it comes to dimsum in Hong Kong but the chef by no means came from small beginnings. The dimsum chef Mak Pui Gor who opened Tin Ho Wan was reported to have served at Four Seasons Hotel's Lung King Hin ???, the only restaurant given "3 Stars" in the HK & Macau Michellin Guide 2009. This marketing point cause the restaurant to shoot to fame over the internet and local magazine reviews within a very short time.

This attracted a long queue to form way before their opening hours at 10 am, many of those who await in anticipation are locals families big and small. Some are so accustomed to the waiting game that they brought along foldable stools, like the lady in purple in the purple.
