Hello Hong Kong

A selection of Hong Kong holiday snaps, with side trips off to Chimelong Ocean Kingdom theme park and Macau.

Photos by me and husband. #nofilter, as they say on Instagram. I’m @alifelessdigital if you enjoy that sort of thing.

With thanks to mum and the magnificent Moks for their help and hospitality.

Here’s one I wrote earlier

Alien fruit On holiday, I like to relax. And take pictures of fruit.

The sound of one glove clapping Lost gloves.

Tiny tablets and toys It was a quiet morning at home. I was pondering the largeness of my multivitamin tablet.

Hong Kong French toast – it’s not French and it’s not toast

At the top of this blog, there’s a picture of a mysterious fried square thing on a plate. It’s secret identity shall now be revealed as … Hong Kong French toast.

It’s not French and it’s not toast. It has has so little nutritional value that perhaps it isn’t technically food either. It is, however, one of our favourite Hong Kong special snacks.

Hong Kong French toast is usually:

  • 2 slices of soft, crustless white sandwich bread
  • With smooth peanut butter in the middle
  • Dipped in egg
  • Fried
  • Served with golden syrup
  • And a piece of bonus butter.

You might feel your arteries hardening a little as you look at these pictures…
