Going around Tsim Sha Tsui~

Although I had gone to Tsim Sha Tsui the day before with my mom's best friend, my friend from the ParaPara community here in Hong Kong wanted to take me around the area as well. I have been talking to him online for about 10 years, so it was really nice to finally meet him in real life!

Shoes: Galstar, I wore sneakers to give my feet a break from heels! There is a hidden heel inside luckily so I have a little bit of extra height :D

My friend knew I really like Baked Pork Chop Rice, so he took me to a restaurant he used to frequent when he worked in the Tsim Sha Tsui area.
The style of it is a bit different than the typical dish, but I liked this version of it a lot! I'm a sucker for huge chunks of onions and burnt tops <3 br="">

My friend used to work as a tour guide, so he took me on a tour of landmarks around Tsim Sha Tsui!

The next following pictures were from an area dedicated to the most popular comics and cartoon characters from Hong Kong:



At the bay that separates the Kowloon and Hong Kong sides of the island. We're on the Kowloon side!
If you look closely at the man in this photo, he's actually holding a fishing line to get fish!

It was really foggy that day, but it was still cool to see!

Where we were standing was where the original Tsim Sha Tsui station was. The only thing they kept from the old station is this clock tower.

This is a important place from ParaPara history in Hong Kong! Back during the 3rd boom in 2001, the ParaPara Allstars came to Hong Kong to film television appearances because ParaPara was very popular here at the time. In this spot they held a ParaPara competition judged by the PPA where the winners earned a spot in the finals held in Tokyo.

Andy Warhol exhibit at the Art museum in Kowloon.

The next few pictures are from the Avenue of the Stars, which is Hong Kong's version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
This is Hong Kong's version of the Oscars. Very pretty statue!

This is supposed to be a very famous hotel where celebrities stay at. Ayumi Hamasaki stayed here when she came to Hong Kong.

A lot of tourists came to the area, despite the weather not being so great.

A big statue of Bruce Lee, of course!

While we were walking around, we passed by the Charlie Brown Cafe. It's a Peanuts-themed restaurant, similar to Knott's Berry Farm close to where I live!

The front of the restaurant, but you have to walk inside to get into the actual restaurant.

 Display of Peanuts-themed sweets and cakes. So cute!

Afterwards he took me to one of the local arcades, because he knew I wanted to play Dance Evolution Arcade! It's the same as Dance Masters in the US, but in an arcade machine.
 It was fun playing together, of course we didn't get any pictures of that since it was only us.

I had to get a picture of this lady! She was trying all of the music games and was hilarious. She really played DDR like how she is standing, with one arm up while still holding onto her purse.


The arcade was inside a mall, so I walked around after he had to go off somewhere else.
Makeup is everywhere in Hong Kong. This is my dream place! *_*

Found a Benefit store here! So cute, and Sasa is right next to it.

 I don't remember what store this was, but the display is adorable. It made me really miss my dog!

For whatever reason, crocs are really popular here in Hong Kong! So much so they used it in a government sign. Throw them all in a fire!!

  2. I think you would really like a restaurant called "Tsui Wa" :) Ask your friend I bet she knows! Its a very popular chain restaurant that serves chinese-western fusion foods.. plus they have the BEST milk tea, very tasty and flavourful! And if you go to festival walk, there's a restaruant beside/above/near (? Sorry lol but it's in that "region" of the mall" the ice rink. It's called "Queen's Cafe" if i remember correctly, they serve great chinese-western fusion foods too, especially their baked pork rice :)
