Saturday morning we took the Star Ferry from Hong Kong island to Kowloon.   It’s a quick 10 minute crossing, mostly for tourists.   The metro or the traffic tunnels under the harbor is a much more efficient way to get across!   The sky was hazy .. not as clear as Friday.

We found this painter in Kowloon Park, and the Chinese banyan is from Nathan Road right by the park.   We stopped at a coffee shop for lunch.

Saturday night three of us from work went to the Pacific Place mall to go to Dan Ryan’s Chicago Grill for some American comfort food.   The menu says Warning! We serve American-sized portions. A young Asian couple that sat across from us ordered one item from the menu and shared it.    The neon sign is from Tsim Tsa Tsui district, my favorite night-time haunt in the city where I went after dinner.

  1. In start contrast to American-sized portions, we finally went to Marjorie’s last night with Bill and Dave. It was quite lovely and the food was gourmet, but we laughed the whole evening about how small the portions were. My Fluke was literally the size of a cracker. Gary ordered the prawns but couldn’t look at them let alone eat them because they still had their whiskers on them, so we swapped. A stop at Cupcake Royal managed to finally fill our appetites.
