Friends, I`m back. love
Hope you all are doing fine!

You know my mom always used to say "if one is going on a trip, one has many stories to tell". And boy is she right this time. I arrived today at around 3.30pm and had already as much excitement that it could last for a week or more. One hour before I wanted to leave my home for the airport I received a call from Airbnb that my host has cancelled my booking and I had to look for something else. You can imagine that for my 25 days stay I pick the place I`m gonna live in very carefully but that dream was gone. Gladly I found a room which is ok in location as well as in money and size - I thought. That host told me she doesn`t want me ther for more then a few nights because it`s right in the middle of Lan Kwai Fong, she added she will give me another place wich she has to manage first. So I left Germany with a suitcase full of uncertainties. Will that actually nice looking place really be that noisy? Will the other place she wanted to put me in really be as small as in those pics? What if .... . What if ... . Rolling Eyes

Everything went smooth after my arrival. The LKF room is really nice but already really noisy and it`s only 9pm. Good I`ve brought my earplugs.

And it`s good to know that on Saturday I can move into the other room.

I have nothing to show from today except ... FOOD. In Love



Braised noodles, wonton, oyster sauce and iced lemon tea.

Maybe more from tomorrow.

Hello Helga!
Good to have you around!
Glad you like my ... our dinner!

As for the place I`m staying - oh my god is it noisy. It got slightly better at 4.30am. And the street looked like a trash site this morning - unbelievable! Shocked I mean partying and having fun is one thing but that ...


In the morning I went for my long anticipated run. Did the loop twice, nice and slow.

And of course ... In Love



Nice whatever. Do you guys think it might turn into a beautiful butterfly one day?



After that I went for some lunch, also longed for that taste for quite some time.
Congee at Sang Kee.



After that I checkend out the area I will be moving to tomorrow afternoon. Then I took a ride to SHau Kei Wan on the "Ding Ding", the tram.



In the evening I met Agnes and Swan for dinner.

Hot chicken sichuan style



And noodles with peanuts and turnip cake.



And dumplings with soup and some rice rolls.



Tomorrow I`ve signed up for a hike and also have to move, so no idea if I post anything.

WOW!!!
Time flies - it's this nice period of time AGAIN. Few days of being super busy and not looking, I found gem in this website. Very Happy
Thanks for bringing us beautiful pictures from this beautiful city, plus amazing stories and delicious food love Drool Giving a kiss . That caterpillar, which looks like a perfect loop, surely would turn into a pretty butterfly. Hopefully it don't become someone's dinner first ~.
Be careful, and enjoy Waving .

Ham, I`m sure I can get you a pic of the egg waffles, I love them, too.

As for today, I signed up for a hike with the HK Hiking Meetup. If you come to HK, get the Meetup app and join them. Those guys really are a friendly bunch.

Today we hiked along the south lantau country trail. Weather was nice and warm, just as I like it.

View along the trail.



A very patient butterfly, a large faun, when we took a break.
I guess you know this kind already. I took pics of this kind of butterfly before.



After the hike along the Sheung Wan waterfront. Pretty clear sky today. Would have been nice night pics from the peak but I`m too tired. My heart rate monitor shows 20k of walking and it`s only the 2nd day. I hope the weather will be good and grant me another chance.



And after that I`ve met a ex cantonese teacher for dinner. I let her pick where to go and ... what can I say I went back to the place I`ve been yesterday for lunch. She lives a bit more to the west from that place but never ate here before. Shocked
She said she enjoyed the food.
I hope you don`t get bored with my congee pics.
Do you guys like that kind of food?



Do you have any request regarding pics. Less food? Less wildlife? Would you like to see something in particular? Tell me, OK?!

Yes, oh I forgot. Lovely tiny room, even a little bigger then I expexted. Newly renovated. Nice and quiet. No partyzone.

Oh. Misunderstanding Embarassed It's my 20th visit to HK. To the peak - I never started counting. But my guess is with all the runs up there ... a lot. Laughing

It's a pity we don't have china towns in Austria and Germany Helga. Otherwise these delishious foods would be reachable.
