“Gung Hay Fat Choy!” That’s me attempting to wish you a happy Chinese new year in Cantonese. At one point in my life, I spoke Mandarin, but never Cantonese, the dialect spoken in Hong Kong.
Because I’m feeling inspired, here are some pictures from Hong Kong taken when I was there shortly after Chinese New Year in 2009. Normally I’m not much of a big city person (maybe I got enough of it growing up near Los Angeles), but I love Hong Kong (at least for a visit).
One of the things that I really enjoyed about Hong Kong was the contrast between the traditional and the modern.
