For the whole month I was in Hong Kong I really did pack everything in! The first week was pretty much taken up by my brother’s wedding then the second week I was busy being a tour guide and showing some of our mutual friends around the usual tourist destinations. Only in the last two weeks was there time for work and I had the chance to do some of the things I enjoy doing, plus my fiance is obsessed with Hong Kong. He has a massive plan to move there!
This was the 3rd time my fiance has been to Hong Kong and there was still so many things he hasn’t done because Hong Kong is not just a city. So this time round we had a chance to explore some of the countryside and just enjoy what Hong Kong has to offer. One of my favourite things about Hong Kong is the amazing seafood. I mean seafood does not get any fresher, you may see many fish tanks inside a restaurant and the reason being is all you have to do is point at which one you want and next thing you know it will appear on your table cooked to perfection.
There is a place called Sai Kung and it is very famous for its seafood so of course I had to go. That day I learnt something new about fishermen and their choice of eyewear.
As I was walking around and checking out what all the fishermen were doing I noticed a lot of them had some rather bright sunglasses lying around.
At first I just thought it was a fashion statement within the fishing community which I thought was quiet cool but as a matter of fact the brightness is so they can find them on the boat easily, especially when the boat is a bit rocky with things sliding about. So readers there you have it, an interesting (but random) eyewear fact for you. I guess in the UK we may never find that out because it is hardly ever sunny, even in the summer! We will be lucky if we see 2 weeks worth of sunshine.
By the way… I STILL LOVE HONG KONG! More from my Hong Kong adventures to come in the next few days 🙂
