Today I was clearing up the photos in my compact camera that I bought recently because it sucks and thinking of getting a new one. To my horror, in it was my Hong Kong pics which I have totally forgotten about. Luckily I didn’t select clear all and it will be gone.
I went for a 3 day short trip to Hong Kong in the beginning of August. Few thoughts and things that I wanna share. It was my second time to Hong Kong. Like the 1st time, the city was very crowded. It made me actually felt so much better about Singapore after because I always feel Singapore has become very crowded since I move back from UK and Korea. But then after being there in Hong Kong, it made me feel less crowded in Singapore as it is much worse in terms of population there.
Hong Kong is very similar to Singapore in many ways so I can’t help but comparing the two and wonder if Hong Kong is what Singapore will be like in 20-30 years? Looking at the tiny homes and the cramp streets full of people in Hong Kong made me want to urge the current generation to quickly all be home owners and buy houses. Very likely our houses here will get smaller and more expensive as time goes by until we can no longer afford to own but to rent only. Look at the new trend of shoebox/mickey mouse homes in Singapore? It has already started to mirror Hong Kong.
First thing to do when arrive after throwing the bags at the hotel is to go up to the PEAK!
Overall holiday was quite nice in terms of sight seeing and food. Though people there could be a bit friendlier and service a bit better(though I have many nice Hong Kong friends in Singapore). It was suppose to be summer sale season but I did not get to buy much things. Quite disappointed with the local fashion. Most higher end malls just sells clothes made in Korea. I must as well just go Korea and shop? Korea even better place to buy beauty products and I can get to meet all my Korean buddies again. Anyway I believe a country need to have it’s own fashion trend to really stand out as a shopping heaven. Hong Kong really is loosing it’s shopping standard compared to few years back when I was there. But one thing is the night life really thumbs up in this busting city which Singapore need to catch up on.
