Hong Kong

Cheung and I were roommates in college. Years later, he invited me to his wedding.

That's Bruce on the far left, Cheung is the groom and I am on the far right.
The three of us met 25 years ago while living in the same college dorm.
Cheung and I were roommates then. Cheung's lovely bride is Cindy;
that's Davin in back of me.

Cheung and his lovely wife Cindy play games at the wedding.

 

 

The following pictures were taken at Hong Kong Park. The park had fountains, artificial lakes, and the wedding registry.

Hey, this fountain is almost wheelchair accessible!

This is one of several artificial lakes in Hong Kong Park. The water is clear and shallow enough to see the fish. Note the contrast with the ultra-modern building behind me.

Those things in my shirt pocket are part of the Hong Kong wedding tradition.

The day after the wedding, Cheung took us to a great restaurant. You pick out your entree and this man retrieves it, gives it to the chef for cooking.

On a previous visit to Hong Kong, we wondered the streets and found many street food vendors open for business quite late at night..

Before going to Hong Kong for the first time, I asked my travel agent about language. She said it wouldn't be a problem as HK was a British colony and everyone spoke English. The truth is, students learn English in school but many don't practice it and therefore, many don't speak it.

We finally found a restaurant where one person spoke some English. When we looked around the restaurant, we saw some interesting looking meals. When we inquired as to what they were, the waiter thought we wanted to order it. We had plenty to eat.
