Yesterday, we went to check to out Kowloon Park as there are Kong Fu demonstrations on Sunday afternoons. Not only did we get to see Kung Fu, we also caught the end of a dragon dance. While both were pretty amateurish, the boys loved them.
Doug had scoped out a restaurant for dinner on his new favorite website, openrice. However, as we’re kind of the senior citizens of Hong Kong (we eat WAY earlier than most folks), the restaurant wasn’t open yet when we got to it. This gave us the chance to scope out the Temple Street Night market, which was just getting started. Luckily, the market did not disappoint; there was something for everyone, including dried iguana on a stick.
The second important lesson of the evening was about counterfeit goods (hence the quotes around Angry Bird – they were surely not legit). We had a lengthy discussion of what was meant by said term; this lesson was reinforced by the fact that Quin discovered a hole in his Angry Bird not less than 3 hours after purchase. Doug was worried about how we’d get these large birds home; I have a sneaky suspicion that will not be a problem. Nonetheless, we are all excited to return to the night market sometime soon; I have my eye on a “Tod’s” purse.
