Today we ventured out to Hong Kong island where we visited Man Mo temple. There were incence sticks burning from floor to ceiling which are used as prayers, the smokey effect was quite over powering. We both had our fortunes read there as well. Apparently I am going to have a good year next year with my career and a promotion in 2007!! That was very good news, although not sure this man was capable of giving me bad news. Anyway we ended the evening on the peak by going up the tram. From here there were spectacular views of Hong Kong.
Our best purchase so far has been our umbrellas
As yet I have not been taken with the cuisine this may have something to do with my visit to the live fish market yesterday where they had bags of live toads crammed together and seemed to be butchering them while a live as well as seeing whole pigs hanging in the streets. Pig offal soup or maybe stomach anyone?
Lamma island tomorrow...
Ill keep you all posted, I have a new flash camera now so watch this space for some photos!
