Admiralty MTR at 7pm, LOL · When nobody can tell the difference between a British, Canadian or Australian accent so you just go along with it and become an honorary Canadian (I sound like this, by the way!) · The way adorable grannies all wear purple like it’s a secret club or something · That egg custard tart place on Hollywood Road · Tai O – your essential must visit place! · Everybody’s school uniforms being straight outta an anime · Never being alone because the city is loud af even at 4am · How teeny tiny everything can be to adapt for small spaces · When Mong Kok is annoyingly the hub of all good street food but also the most crowded place in all the land · Wandering around Kowloon Park in the late afternoon, wondering what Kowloon Walled City could’ve been like · The chaotic perfection of the overflowing markets, busy from dawn ’til dusk · Perfect balance between old and new, Eastern and Western; two worlds in harmony · Familiar wafts of tradition making themselves known in an increasingly modern world.
I’ve just landed home in England to begin another new chapter. And, you know what? Hong Kong, I already miss you.
