I was going through old photos at my mom’s today and came across these from Hong Kong 25 years ago. I’m not sure how I missed these before, but today was the first time I’d seen them in a quarter of a century.
I’ve posted photos from my orientation at the Chinese University of Hong Kong during my first few days in the city. Here’s another from that orientation. I’m up in Fanling here, at the Fung Ying Seen Koon Taoist Temple, where my ex-husband worked during part of our marriage.
Four months later, my mom flew to Hong Kong to visit me and see the city for the first time in 25 years. Tomorrow I’ll post some photos from Lantau Island (which deserves a post of its own), but here I am getting my shoes shined somewhere. I think it’s in an alley in Central.
And this is a traditional dim sum stadium. If I had to put money on it, I’d guess this was the Treasure Seafood Restaurant in Shatin (not the faux floating one), but again I’m not entirely certain. If anyone knows for sure, I’d love to hear more!
As I said above, I’ll have more photos from Lantau Island my mom took that year. That excursion was fun, but probably the most rustic time I’ve ever spent in Hong Kong.
