Viva La Streetmarket!

What camera are you using? Olympus E-PL1 with a standard 18-55 mm lens. 
 And sometimes I make photos with my phonecamera. Who is taking pictures of you? Like 80% is me with tripod and timer, 20% are my friends & family. Do you photoshop your pictures? Yep. Check out my DIY's photoshop effects! Which airline did you take? To Hong Kong: Turkish Airline comfort class, to Taiwan Dragonair & Cathay Pacific (nearly wrote pathetic - woops) economy and business class.  

So, I just answered your FAQ's!
Feel free to comment your questions!

This time I want to take you guys on a journey through the streetmarkets of Hong Kong!


Chinese herbs, spicey sausages, beans & candy~

I totally love the fruit from these markets, they are so fresh & cheap!

"Lets have jumbo snails tonight hun!" yum....

First time having 'hot' bubble tea :)


I'm Feeling: alittlebitnervous
Music: Ludovico Einaudi - Giorni Dispari Ludo, one of my favorite classical composer. Giorni Dispari = Odd Days. For the emo days. 
Food: seaweed crackers
Drink: water

  5. Oh my gosh, the snails are huge! I love hitting up street markets for fresh fruits too. Once again, thank you for sharing these photos! :)

    P.S. I agree with you on Kelly Osbourne. I don't like her, but her style is definitely evolving. I love Supernatural!

    Lots of love, B

  6. I love hot boba tea! It's so different from having it cold, but I actually prefer it warm. You?

    Also I remember reading that you went to a Hello Kitty museum and I was wondering the name of it and if the museum had a website. If you could help me out, that'd be great! :)

  40. Oooooh wasn't Hong Kong just lovely? Your pics bring back so many memories.

    I read your last few posts, too. I'm SO with you on flying. I'm quite an avid traveller and when younger, turbulence and stuff didn't use to affect me so much. Now I get a bit jumpy and bad landings worry me a bit. Also, like you, I LOVE airplane food hehehe

    Btw, you mentioned in my blog about a mall near Ladies' Market. Did you mean Argyle Centre? If so, yes I did spend some time there :D

  42. Street markets are all known to be cheap rather than u buy them frm supermarket. Esp. seafood. Like last time in KK we bought prawn for $5 per kilo o_O and durian $10 one tie. Cool, no?
