A day in Tsim Sha Tsui 02

EN

During my stay in Hong Kong, I went to a lot of places including ‘Tsim Sha Tsui’. Me and my cousin and aunt were really my tour guide which is really a blessing. Its not like I can’t speak the language because I can, but sometimes I lack of words and my Cantonese has a lot of weird foreign accent mix (Dutch, English..) in it. Which I find it embarrassing so I rather have my family do the talking for me ha.

Tijdens mijn verblijf in Hong Kong heb ik vele plekken bezocht waaronder ‘Tsim Sha Tsui’. Vandaar deze post (doh). Ik en mijn nichtje en tante waren echt mijn reisgids en dat vind ik fijn. Het is niet dat ik de taal niet ken of spreek, maar soms ontbreekt er wat woorden in mijn Kantonese woordenschat. En eerlijk is eerlijk, mijn Kantonees klinkt niet echt ‘local’ met hier en daar een buitenlands accent van Nederlands en Engels. Niet echt flatteus vind ik zelf, dus laat ik het woord liever over aan mijn familie ha.
There was a (free) exhibition that we have attended: 'Explore Our Heritage'. Basically all about Hong Kong history. 

I was pretty impressed about this exhibition as I did not expect a free exhibition would provide this much seeing materials and activities (you can play games and watch movies and draw stuff). Also became a bit wiser about Hong Kong as well!

 A walk through 'Tsim Sha Tsui District Park' and hoping that it will clean and freshen up our lungs from the smog out there... 

 Funny how the weather in Hong Kong can change drastically from nice blue sky weather to a tropical shower rain. Literally felt like taking a shower, look at my dress! What I've learned: always bring an umbrella.  

 Dinner in our belly.

  1. Nice! Erg herkenbaar @ Chinees praten.
    Ik kan deels Wenzhounees praten, maar ik ben vaak bang dat ze me vierkant gaan uitlachen :P.

  7. haha, Ik kan begrijpen dat je het woord liever overlaat aan iemand anders, maar is het ook niet goed om te oefenen? XD Ik denk dat het al super is dat je zoveel talen spreek *O*
    De gratis tentoonstelling is echt prachtig! Ik zou ook verbaast zijn dat het een gratis tentoonstelling is. Je jurk is trouwens zooo mooi :D En de locatie is ook echt prachtig :) Ik zou er ook eens naartoe moeten gaan. Is dat eigenlijk te doen als je de taal niet spreekt? :D

  13. Haha I'm the same with my cantonese - I have to substitute the words I don't know with english so I sound so dumb when I'm talking to someone from HK! Once again your posts are making me super eager to go back. If all goes to plan, I'll be returning sometime this year (fingers crossed!)

  15. Aww, pruillipje :P Ziet er leuk uit! Is de smog echt overal in HK zo erg? :/ Ik weet wel dat ze een enorm billboard op gehangen hebben met een neppe zonsondergang, omdat je de echte soms niet kan zien :x

  19. You're so lucky you got family in HK and they can bring / show you where to eat, etc etc. when i went to hk last year's christmas, we didn't really get to explore tsim sha tsui much. what a bummer. and then the second time in causeway bay and to central, no guide either so we kind of randomly walked and ate around... sigh.

    anyway, when you were in hk, was there any warning about typhoon? lol hk turned into a dead, post apocalyptic zombie town when a typhoon's being warned >w<
