a fair amount of books

Checked out the Hong Kong Book Fair last week. Was pretty cool, chalked full of books and a few hidden gems. The English book sections were fair enough.
who wants to go to other place?

Was very packed, this picture does no justice to the fullness of the huge hall it took place in. At some points during the day I was getting rather annoyed.

Some awesomely decorated stalls....

found one stall that had amazing books, I wanted to buy everything they had, but didn't. It had loads of neat design books - check it -

This is all I got...

The Hong Kong Book fair runs until the 26th and is at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center in Wan Chai. It is 25$ to get in or 10$ before 12 noon.

The day after the fair ends the Comic Fair begins! VERY KEEN!

Checked out the Hong Kong Wetland Park the other day...
It was a good way to spend the afternoon. I was slightly disappointed with the lack of cool animals. We did however see a very big rat swimming through the swamps.
So here is my lazy-ass review. It was a great open space (which is rare and somewhat surreal in Hong Kong). It was clean and well maintained. Not a whole lot to do unless you are into walking around and enjoying nature. I would recommend checking it out if you feel like spending a day away from the buzz of the city.

The entrance to the building was lined with these cool bronze statues.

First thing to potentially see after passing through the visitors center is Pui Pui the crocodile.
Unfortunately, we didn't get to see him.

mass areas of green and blue.
calming walkway that trails throughout the entire park.

Take a walk on the wild side (not really though).

Lots of cool trees and plants.

We saw mainly dragonflies and a few butterflies...

Anyways, it was pleasant, but not the best thing I've ever done.
Price is 30HKD, Open 10 - 5 I believe. Closed on Tuesdays.

How to get there. Take the MTR to Tin Shui Wai. Then take the Light Rail to Hong Kong Wetland Park.

I am now 27 years old and am a proud owner of many star wars collectibles as well as super good-time memories!

Had a great time at Shower Karaoke in Causeway Bay with some of my close friends... sang many a classic song. Enjoyed some fine brews and some munchy Thai snacks. Here's what happened>>

'2 become 1'

I only received Star Wars crap (which I am very happy about).
A pepsi top collector set of Darth and Luke, super fine detail.

Bobbly Wobbly Heads

Had to wait in Sham Shui Po yesterday to pick up my Wii that was being fixed and discovered a place. A magical place full of cool toys. ONE of my new favorite little toy shops this great city has to offer. Picked up a bunch of bobble heads to add to my weak (but now growing) collection. Gonna have to for sure go back and get more!
