HONG KONG 2011 Music : Reminisce
Hong Kong means Fragrant Harbor in Cantonese Hong Kong
Hong Kong Island ( with Victoria Peak on the right ) and Victoria Harbor in the 70s
A typical small village in New Territories in the 70s
In the 60s, 10 cents HK ( a little more than 1 cent US) buys you a home brewed herbal drink …
or rents you a comic book in the street
20 cents HK (3 cents US) buys you a soft drink at this corner store Those days are gone
Hong Kong was famous for its night lights even in the 60s
Lights at Central today outshine the twilight
Central harbor front at dusk showing the round domes of the Convention Center
Kowloon harbor front showing the U-shaped Cultural Center on the right
Ferries used to be the primary mean of crossing the Harbor between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island
I always like the crew uniform of Star Ferry
Then came a new way for cars and subway to cross the Harbor
Wooden boats are still being used
… especially at offshore islands ….
…. where you can still find fishermen
This giant boat in Aberdeen became the famous Jumbo Floating Restaurant
Amazed at the cables and tracks that carry the Peak Tram up and down the Peak
Breath-taking view from the Peak
View of Harbor and Kowloon Peninsula from the Peak in 1996
Another angle in 1996
Ten years later More buildings and smog
Nature at the Peak a rare find
Gondola rides to Ocean Park offer spectacular views of the back side of HK Island
1997 Authority transferred peacefully from British Crown Colony to Special Administrative Region of China
War Memorial to the left of the Supreme Court is a reminder of the citys British colonial past
The Supreme Court at night
Major bank buildings at night in Central
City Hall built in the 60s
The prestigious Hong Kong University founded in 1911
Another one of the 7 universities in HK
This Anglican secondary school St. Pauls College has the longest history (founded in 1851)
Subway is very convenient
Other means of land transportation include buses, electric trams and taxis
Expressway built on landfill along the Central harbor front
Some buildings here are very tall
Tall but narrow because land is expensive
Lan Kwai Fong a popular hangout for young expats
HK is not exempt from American fast food
For the rich, a private yacht is the way to go
… but you can always be creative
Here, East truly meets West - both western and Chinese holidays are observed …e.g. Christmas
…. Chinese Mid-Autumn Festival
Always a bilingual city
Even though Hong Kong is one of the most modern cities in the world, many things remain unchanged for decades
Many still hang dry their clothes
They still shop in open markets
where goods are sold the same way as 50 years ago
where fish and meat are chopped in front of you to show they are fresh
American apples and oranges
You can shop everywhere, even in alleys
Service is efficient You can have your shoes repaired while you wait
Old fashioned pawn shop
Most recognized old landmark Tsimshatsui Clock Tower
