I went to Hong Kong last week for five days. We lived in Hong Kong for three years and left eleven years ago and apart from the odd one night stopover, I hadn't spent any time there since so last week I decided to play tourist and visit old haunts. I took so many photographs, this is part one. I seemed to take a lot of pictures of dried fish as the choices are everywhere. More next week.
A trip on the star ferry is a must for any trip to Hong Kong
Yesterday was the 10th of the month so I took ten photos throughout the day. I had a fairly quiet day yesterday but managed to spend most of it along the coastline.
I started the day with poached eggs on toast then headed off to Bondi to do some yoga but first I took a quick detour via Bondi beach which was looking very pretty but the water is a bit cold at the moment.
I then caught up with a friend in one of my favourite bookshops in Sydney and then I pottered in my garden, did a bit of stuff at my desk and later in the afternoon I went for a walk to the local beach and watched the sun set and walked past the local pub getting ready for the evening trade.
The resident cormorant and pelican put on a nice show for me on the water as the sun began to set.
I occasionally get an organic seasonal fruit and veg box and this week it contained quinces, a fruit I see so rarely but do love when served as a paste with cheese. Quinces take hours to soften and I used an old recipe from Stephanie Alexander using honey, butter, and a tiny bit of water and four hours later in the oven on a low heat my quinces had changed colour completely and filled the kitchen with the most wonderful aroma. I served them with greek yoghurt and they were delicious!
