Sai Kung

This years Hong Kong was great because I visited a place
called 'Sai Kung - 西貢'. I love this place! Sai Kung is
actually in my opinion a nice place for tourists
because of the beaches, the laid-back small restaurants/cafe's
and the peaceful, not-so-populated areas. Hence the
many Western people that I've spot here. Even Dutch
people haha.

Sai Kung is also famous for their fish markets and seafood,
which is also another reason why I love Sai Kung!

My day in Sai Kung was rainy and wet and wore
(a-hum) my 'superfancy' yet futuristic-ish raincoat all
day long (I've kept it as souvenir because of the memories that was
created with). Even tho we barely saw any blue skies,
the fluffy, foggy, smokey air was worthy enough to re-visit
SK. And. I had a great lunch - enjoy my pictures!

I regret for not filming it and make it into a gif. image, because it was literately pouring hell. 

 Dangerous skilled photographer than I am. 


I thought she dressed up lovely c: - yay for the sun coming up! Even you lasted for 2 minutes...


The fishmarkets takes places on these boats. After you have decided which fish 
you want, the seller place your order into this long net and hoover it up for you. You place the payment back into
the net and your deal is done. 

 Straight into my soul. 

 20 bucks for the SPCA. They sure know how to 'use' the dogs. 


I have never had these 'mantis prawns' before but my dad says they are delicious. 

 People in HK want their food as fresh as possible. All type of seafood are maintain in fishtanks for longer freshness. 


 Then it started to train.

  20. Your photos are so lovely and I would have loved to visit Sai Kung with you! According to the aquarium near me, mantis prawns have a punch similar to a bullet. I didn't know you could eat them. :o
