The can below is my new favorite drink. Originally a Japanese invention its sold all over Asia. Despite the name it tastes great. In fact it was because of the name that i gave it a try.
Elevators in HK tell you about a superstition amongst the Chinese. Let's see who amongst you is observant enough to come up with the answer: Write a comment and let me know. I live in an area of Hong Kong called Mid Levels and more specifically SOHO which means "South of Hollywood road"
"South" is actually uphill which for some reason feels counter intuitive to me.Its an area that became developed after the advent of the escalator which runs up the steep gradient from Central to Mid Levels. More about the area here and here.It's the longest outdoor escalator in the world and runs "down" before 10 am and "up" afterwards. The area is predominantly expats and overseas Chinese, but there's a fair amount of people and places predating gentrification. There are curio shops, restaurants, bars and a mixture of expensive apartment buildings and local Chinese life.Interesting choice of name huh?That's it for today.
