Hong Kong Diner

Whenever I am in Hong Kong, I am greeted by an air of familiarity and comfort. After all, this is where I was born and spent my early childhood. Although it isn’t a “new” place to travel, it is a needed break from the daily work-home-hangout routine.

A taste of home goes a long way in strengthening the soul.

Here are some photos of my quick weekend trip, not the typical touristy look-see, but its a slice of home.

Photo below is a typical Hong Kong breakfast with Fried noodles, Congee, Hot milk tea, Chang Fen and during this time, Zong Zi  or Rice Dumplings in season for Dragon Boat festival.
