I spent a few days in Hong Kong - mostly in Mong Kok of Kowloon.

Hong Kong is an important crossroad to many other countries in the Pacific and I've always passed through Hong Kong as a layover during the course of my travels. I never got a chance to go out and explore the area. I was also fairly fluent in Cantonese at one point when I was much younger and my dad spoke to me in his native tongue. Feeling a need to practice my fading Cantonese and wanting an excuse to go to Hong Kong, I decided to take off for the Asian archipelago.

This was a very nice opportunity to spend a few days by myself just shooting pictures and video to satisfy my photography/videography needs that I haven't been able to do much of due to the amount of work I usually have going on.

Hong Kong is often remarked as "just another big city" - but it's a pretty exciting city nonetheless. Towering skyscrapers, a saturated market for fancy wrist watches (real or fake), and a heightened sense of commercialism characterizes the former British territory. The people are genuine and the dim sum is above everything else you've ever tasted.
