I was just walking through a busy and crowded street market.

A man and his fruit stand. Most make up of the buildings are local resident’s apts above these local stands in the street market. 

IMG_3791

More fruit stands and across is a stand that sells towels.

IMG_3792

It is very common even for men to wear tote bags, why? Hong Kong charges 50 cents per plastic bags!

IMG_3793

I was standing in the middle of road trying to capture the streets. Look above, it’s the infamous street lights with the unique doot doot sound!

A pano-view of the skyscrapers in front of me. Old residential building along with few tall ones.

IMG_3795

Short or tall buildings…they all have small units stacked up!

IMG_3796

A herbal tea stand that sells 10 HKD per bowl of tea. Here’s a family getting their bowl of tea for the day!

IMG_3797

I’m guessing the parents really want their daughters to drink the herbal tea…

My table!… wonton soup with one Thai style meat ball and coffee on the side.

IMG_3801

The wonton tasted really good, there were lots of shrimp meat and little yellow beans. 

IMG_3802

This was the inside of the local restaurant.

IMG_3803

The outside!

IMG_3804

A clear view of the herbal tea stand. It’s like a convenience store, there’s umbrella, bottled water…

IMG_3805

There’s a description sign for every bowl of herbal tea. A small round glass top is placed on top of the bowl and you can see the evaporation filling up from the inside.

IMG_3806

Herbal tea…served while its warm and dark brown to black tea.

IMG_3807

I was so scared getting yell at so I waited for the owner to go away. You can somewhat see that the inside is not spacious at all.

IMG_3810

Hong Kong’s taxi! It brings back so much memories of watching TVB.

IMG_3811

I wanted to capture a split moment of the corner of the streets. I also captured this woman’s look.

IMG_3812

I wish I could capture a better quality of this old woman pushing a little cart of bags.

IMG_3813

The middle of the street, you can see how dense everything is.

IMG_3814

I wonder she was going…

IMG_3815

An up-close of police’s WANTED posts. Just like everywhere you go, there’s always good and bad people. These suspects are wanted for Arson and Murder (wow…)

IMG_3816

Hong Kong is safe for the most part…

IMG_3817

The first florist shop I saw entering in Flower Market Road. 

IMG_3818

Fresh flower, fresh aroma of flowers throughout the stores!

IMG_3820

I looked up to a tree with beautiful dark red flowers and so I took a picture along with the building’s rooftops.

IMG_3821

As beautiful as the flowers are…they just drop to the ground.

IMG_3822

A slight close up of the flower, it is called Bombax ceiba.

IMG_3825

A close up of a pot of flowers.

IMG_3826

IMG_3829

They look so delicate in their buds.

IMG_3830

So tiny and still have a lot of time to mature!

IMG_3831

I think I told a guy that sometimes it is hard to smell nature and its’ flowers and plants. 

IMG_3833

It is very common in HK to have hourly hotel. 

IMG_3834

You can see the amazing contrast between the flower businesses on the ground level and resident’s air-dry laundry from the top.

IMG_3835

A young girl looking at the wall of flowers.

IMG_3836

This florist shop is filled with flowers.

IMG_3837

Flowers and plants even filled the walls between this alley way. The alley ways sometimes can be used to sell flowers and other times for staff to prepare and stock their inventory.

IMG_3838

Looking at the street from the bottom up.

IMG_3839

Just looking at this interesting plant…

IMG_3840

Yup, it is called a pitcher plant.

IMG_3841

More flowers and plants ahead!

IMG_3842

Fresh flowers and plants delivered to the store!

IMG_3843

I was really tired but I should just get in the picture…
