Well after a slight disappointment yesterday Wink I was today a bit awarded with lots of culture. I went to Cheung Chau (one of my favorite places) today and it seems today was the high season there of Tin Hau Festival (goddess of the sea). When I arrived at the pier I could hear traditional music and could see lion and unicorn dances - wonderful.

But first as Jenny requested: Breakfast. A pineapple bun on the ferry leaving Yung Shue Wan. Sorry about the bad quality, I had no time to do the correct settings, ferry was too quick - or I was too slow. Confused


And dessert, my beloved black-white. Black sesame and bean curd.


A boat arriving or leaving? with a Tin Hau shrine.


This evening the upload of my pics takes exceedingly long. Will try it tomorrow again. There are more pics from today.

So, let`s continue our yesterday experience.

One of the dancers was so kind to pose for me. Sweet!


Hey, what`s that on the right side? A bamboo tent for cantonese opera? Will I be able to hear a little of this old art?


Oh yes I could. The costumes are wonderful, colorful


During my last years stay at Lamma, I could experience the whole "Tin Hau Festival" with cantonese opera, dragonboat races, lion and unicorn dances. That was wonderful.

Performers, having fun.


No, not my dinner!


Preparation for the famous Cheung Chau bun festival.


Haha, sorry I couldn`t resist.


Roof of a Tin Hau temple, I love those little figures, let alone the dragons.


Main beach on Cheung Chau.
I was told, Cheung Chau once were 2 separate islands being close together and the sea connected them with sand.


Gotta go, the big city is waiting.

Helga, if I had used my computer and/or my brain d'oh! I could have known it.
I think especially the cantonese opera is not for everybody`s ears. I called my sis last year outside the opera tent and she was asking me "who is killing a cat?". I don`t mind, I like it.

The whole "party" starts on Lamma the day after I`ve left. Ah well one can`t have it all.

Let`s continue our little adventure.
Today I went back to Cheung Chau because it was dragonboat day.

More lion and unicorn dances.


Ready!?


Action!


Beautifully decorated.


But everyday life goes on ...


... or not.


Jenny you wanted to see snacks. I have not really an idea what this is. An old lady was selling this stuff and I was hoping it is filled with red bean (which I like a lot) - asked for it in cantonese, but she told me it is not but what it is I couldn`t understand Embarassed but she told me in cantonese that it tastes good. It was meat, I guess chicken, and peanuts - actually it was delish.


Narrow street in on Cheung Chau.


This guy was really quick.


Ham, you missed egg waffles? Here you go! Wink


Seafood to get dried.


Lunch, was way too much to eat it all.
Broccoli with garlic and chicken with black pepper.


And back again.


No idea if I will be able to post anything an Monday, I`m leaving around midnight. Crying or Very sad
It was very nice to take you all with me on my wonderful trip and I hope you enjoyed it a little. But most of all I hope I could you introduce a little to this wonderful place on earth.

Well you've definitely travelled more than I have! I haven't been to Lamma or Cheung Chau. You should be my tour guide next time I'm there. Wink

Okay, pineapple bun is NOT dessert! LOL. I like stuff like yeung zi gum lo (mango pomelo sago soup) or dan bak hen yen cha (almond tea with egg white).

Yes, I know I know, I thought I could convince you. Let`s say it`s sweet and could be eaten as dessert as well. ? Wink

Thanks for letting me know Very Happy . It sounds healthy and delicious Drool . Initially I kept thinking the white part is some kind of Tofu Wink .
