Central, Hong Kong - 28th March 2010

By: tarepanda

Today we go to try dim sum.  It is the style of dining for breakfast or lunch here. 

My TV friends show me how to mark what she wants on the order form.  The dishes all come in small size and are expected to be share, so everybody gets to eat a little of everything.


This is the Hainanese Chicken rice.  It's considered a National dish of Singapore.  The rice is cooked with ginger, garlic and chicken stock to give it a delicious flavor.


More dim sum arrive at the table.  They come served in small dishes or bamboo steamers.


The sesame ball has a creamy custard filling.


This is a dish for me!  It's fish head with soy sauce.  Well, certainly not how I usually eat my fish but hey I am adventrous!!  It tastes pretty good.


Afterwards, we take the bus to cross the harbor.  The Victoria Harbor separates the Hong Kong Island and the Kowloon Penisula (which is connected to mainland China).



In all honesty, tunnels under the water sounds creepy so I am glad we are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel!


Wow a lot of tall buildings!


Central is the financial district of Hong Kong.  Many multinational financial and trade businesses have their headquarters here.  Here you can see from the left the Bank of China Tower (designed by I. M. Pei and the 4th tallest building in Hong Kong), Cheung Kong Center and HSBC HQ.  The little brown building behind me is the old Bank of China office, which looks really tiny compared to all the shiny new buildings.
