Hong Kong Lit Up

Day 24: Friday, November 2, 2012
Port day in Hong Kong! Having been to HK twice already (the last stay being eight days too long for such a tiny island), we just kept it chill and set out to do the one thing we wanted to accomplish: get Ryan’s Issey Miyake watch fixed. We brought it all the way from the US to Issey Miyake in Japan where they told us to bring it to the place of purchase, so went back to the exact store in the Harbour City mall in Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon…only to be told that it’d take 2-3 weeks and they couldn’t ship it. Bummer! So of course, we went back to Crystal Jade for their hand-pulled noodles and xiao long bao’s (Din Tai Fung is still better, IMO):

Afterward, we got froyo at a place called Yo MAMA (LOL) and hot chocolate and scones at a nearby cafe.

That night, our ship sailed out to sea through Victoria Harbor just as the Symphony of Lights went off:

What a grand exit!
