If Kuta in Bali felt like a culture shock at first, then Hong Kong felt like a culture A-bomb. After a day or two, I started to feel comfortable. If you've been to a few big cities (NYC, London, Paris, Rome, etc) then it's not too hard to get the hang of finding your way around yet another one. Like Sydney, I could see myself trying to live in Hong Kong. At the least, I would love to return and spend more time getting to know Hong Kong Island.
- experiencing the hostel life at Mirador Mansion
- riding the train system
- first view of the skyline on Hong Kong Island (day and night)
- hanging out and getting to know Adam
- shopping for the Asus laptop in The Golden Computer Center
- video arcades (specifically Dance Mania and Guitar Freaks)
- Symphony of Light show
- navigating the Mid-level Escalators
- riding the tram up Victoria Peak
- walking around my first giant Buddha sculpture and monastery
- lots of delicious food
- I can wield a pair of chopsticks better than I previously thought!
- My standards for bathroom size are remarkably low as long as there is hot water.
