Hong Kong

THE WALK

1

Why do we have such fancy names.  “Promenade”.   Walking by the “Promenade”.  Seriously.  It’s called a water front.  I walked along the water front.  I am going to stick with that.

It was a hot saturday afternoon, so of course we decided to be healthy and walk along the “water front” (http://www.lcsd.gov.hk/en/parks/mospd/index.html).

I really should start ” ” the word water front.  It’s kind of annoying.

The promenade or water front is located in ma on shan, it was only about a 5 minute walk from the station.  Good thing was you walk through a mall before getting here, so at least you get to chill out a bit before venturing out into the hotness that’s called Hong Kong humidity.

I really hate the humidity here, I get wet, sticky, sweaty, hot etc etc.  All bad combinations.

But.

The walk was worth it.  The best part is there is not a lot of people here, unlike TST or MK or central.  So it’s a nice get away.  Although next time I will be smarter and not go in the early afternoon.  Should get later in the evening (like 5 – 6).  Maybe an after dinner stroll?

Another thing I want to vent about, is why the hell is there no restaurants / bar located along the water front?  This is literally prime location for those establishments.  I am fucking hot and thirsty, I wanted a beer.  Why were there no beers selling at this place.   Such good business opportunities lost.

I should be an urban planner.  But then everywhere would be restaurants and bar.  But it would be a great tourist attraction no?

Oh there is also a park here.  We walked through the park, and found one of those pebble roads. I LOVEEEE pebble roads.  It’s suppose to stimulate your circulation, and also it lets you know if you body has a lot of problems.  You would know this if your foot is hurting like crazy while walking on the pebbles.

I recommend you taking off your socks for this for the full effect.  Eh don’t worry, you’re going to shower anyways right?  Just try it, stop complaining.
