New discovery

28 11 2015


Last weekend, following my run, friends took us to a cute little restaurant in a hitherto-unknown neighbourhood, Ma Tau Kok, around To Kwa Wan Road. In the shadow of the trans-Kowloon expressway, its a somewhat scuffy residential area, with brightly painted old buildings, lively traditional shopping streets and little restaurants with retro awnings – a fun place to explore. I took a long, tired but happy walk back through Ho Man Tin, past a flower market and a funeral home, plus several examples of charmingly ugly 1960s architecture, through the university and by the jaggedly streamlined Twenty-first century edifice of the Innovation Tower, to Tsim Sha Tsui to meet a friend for coffee.
