I just got back recently from a yearly trip at Hong Kong and the wonderful memories of the trip are still so vivid! One of my favourite kind of blog posts is to write (especially documentary shoots), though i'm not so sure how keen all of you are on reading them because they almost always consist of a ten thousand word essay and a gazillion photos. But occasional exceptions are well needed to spice things up a little in life every now and then and since Hong Kong is a nearby destination in Asia, that many Singaporeans like you and me travel to (and some including myself, making it a point to fly up there once a year), i think, after all, it is interesting to my faithful readers of my photography blog.
What i really love about Hong Kong is how alive it always seems to be. Everywhere you look you see people of all ages walking fast, going places. No matter what time of the day, the MTR’s and the streets are always packed with people. I love walking around this city because the streets are the best place to feel the pulse of the city. It raps and thumps like a beat that demands attention and you can’t help but go along with it.
And then the journey ended. I have headed back to the city, back to the airport, and back home, to Singapore. I didn’t expect myself to love an asian country this much. It always turns out, there was good food, beautiful people and a handful of worthy attractions in Hong Kong for me. Weather was around less than 15 degrees celsius whilst there. The cooling and chilly weather helped too in forming good photography shoots as well. Being so near Singapore, a re-visit is always plausible, for a short, neighboring country trip, if ever desired.
