Shore of Tsim Sha Tsui East is for romantic lovers. You can see a pair sitting at the corners.

There were four girls walking down the staircase. They should have found excuse to ask your telephone number and email address by getting your photos. What did you do next? Sure you will not share with us. LOL

Best regards, Jeff

Jeff, they took no notice, they were scared by the gorilla I guess, anyway, I didn't have a flashlight on me to catch them.

Thanks a lot Domingo, Marcel, Arzy and 乾龍, for your comments!

Best wishes, Fai

Your reply is understood, since you are afraid that Scally would attract those girls. And they would leave you. You must keep them as top secret. Hope your impossible mission will be success. LOL

Cheers, Jeff

Jeff, I don't think my (or Scally's) Mandarin is strong enough lol...

Best wishes, Fai

Those Hong Kong girls know English. LOL

Hope you still remember that I come from Hong Kong.

Jeff, by saying Mandarin, I am implying they are from the mainland ;)

Wonderful composition Fai, a fascinating culture metaphore the contrast between the oriental sails and occidental architecture... That world fascinates me cause two grandaunts lived in the british colonies in China and I've heard many stories about... Best regards, Edmundo

Hi Fai,

This also a wonderful picture. The bright lights of the downtown complemented by the subdued lighting in the restuarant (I think)adds even more atmosphere to the picture,

Regards Steven.

Very good idea Fai! A photo original .. and wonderful! I like it! Best wishes, Simona

Thanks Edmundo and Simona for your comments

Steven, I think it would be nice if it was brighter, but that would make it an ugly HDR job lol

Best wishes, Fai

They know English as well. You will not have communication issue. :)

Cheers, Jeff

Faintlightofdawn on August 24, 2009

No they don't Jeff, when I was in China, I completely relied on the guides!

jeff_msn123 on August 24, 2009

Cheers, Jeff
