Sunday/ pictures from Kowloon

I hopped into the van that took a colleague to Hong Kong airport for his trip back to the USA.   From there it was just 15 minutes on the Airport Express train south east to Kowloon station, site of this apartment building.   There must be a lot of feng shui in play with its large gap!   The street scene picture is in Tsim Tsa Tsui just off Nathan Road.    The Ferrero Rocher Christmas tree (Italian hazelnut cream chocolates wrapped in foil) is close by as well.    Junks were used as sea-going vessels as early as the 2nd century but in the year 2011 this one has a diesel engine and tools around Victoria harbor with tourists.   And then it was time for me to call it quits and head back up to the Hong Kong-mainland China border with the East Rail Line that starts at Hung Hom station.   I love the station’s wavy roof : a beautiful industrial design that is functional as well, since it lets in lots of natural light.
