Tsim Sha Tsui

Visiting TST again after 14 years is exactly what I had expected – I remember nothing. Hong Kong skyline fogged too much, so the lasers at Symphony of Lights weren’t exactly defined. Well, that’s a minor detail about the light show, not enough to dethrone its status as one of the largest and most spectacul

ar light shows on the face of the planet. One thing I found particular interesting – the patterns on the Hong Kong Museum of Art is projected by other buildings across the bay!

The 15 minute show felt like it was three minutes. Afterwards, Michael, our helpful student guide, suggested we take the boat across the bay, since it only cost $2.5… HKD! The boat was supposed to drop us off at Central, but we somehow got to Wan Chai – 2 MTR stations away from Central. It took us another 20 minutes of walking and MTR’ing until we finally reached Lan Kwai Fong.

Again, Hong Kong surprised me. LKF at first was totally disappointing. I had been expecting a large indoor building with bars and clubs like shops at a mall, but it’s actually just a block and venues long the streets that surrounded the block. To be fair, the insides of the bars are really nice. We chilled at a club called 2121 until Stephen’s friends arrived. I ordered a martini, but it was basically fruity, girly drink. The women sitting beside us were chugging on draft beer. FML. Nima, Chanrith and I then ordered the strongest drink they had, of which I forgot the name (it was something like amnesia, ironically), a mixture of Bacardi 151, Southern Comfort, and Wild Goose.
