The City of Dreams: A Photodiary

The City of Dreams

An old Chinese fishing boat as against Hongkong's new skyline
Floating Restaurant

food for their gods
faith in a different flavor

View from the peak

Breathtaking Victoria Harbor

Taken from the harbor. Hongkong City Lights.
Tale as old as time

Old as it can be

Neither one prepared, beauty and the beast.

Always, always, a disney girl.

To the music of Mulan's OST
Ayala Land, I said to myself after taking this shot across the temple
Brutalist Architecture. 

Industrial Design

Street food

where neon lights burn bright and urge to shop is painful to fight.

Street is an adjective.

What's better than travel is home

Where Yachts and Old Fishermen Boats meet
To see the world, one stamp at a time.


I hope you enjoyed my first mini photo- diary!
Glimpses of the Airport, Man Mo Temple, The Peak Tram, Old Fisherman's Village, Tinkerbell's Tower, Disneyland, Victoria Harbor, and the busy streets of Kowloon.
A weekend basked in tour guide information coupled with juicy local inside stories. 
Of Cuisine, Culture, Architecture. 
Of distinct Hongkong street fashion. 
Worked up feet, worn out lense.
All these, with the people who matter to me the most.
