Definitely by far the most memorable overseas trip. I had been waiting for this very moment where I can utilize all the experience I taught myself in photography and be able to tell a story from what I've captured behind the lens. It was great to be able catch up with Khai who had been living there for the past year as we share the same interests in photography, but not just that, we also know how to get up to mischief.
Hong Kong is an amazing place that will leave you in shock and awe if you take the time to go out and get lost in the streets. Just entering the airport and taking in such colossal architecture is overwhelming itself. A city thats so organized and developed makes you really appreciate why Hong Kong is such a progressive country. By all means, if I had the opportunity to live there, I would most definitely take it up in a heart beat.
When you take the time to escape from the touristic locations and spontaneously explore somewhere different, thats when you really get a feel for the city. And personally, thats the most memorable part of travelling when you give yourself no limitations.
Rooftop hopping in Mong Kock isn't something you would find on your travel itinerary. Having free access to the rooftops is truly something totally different to what you would find here in Australia. It was funny how on the way up to the rooftop access, some of the apartments had a <3 symbol which was really interesting yet mysterious in a way. No idea but I'm sure I can imagine something erotic on those lines haha.
The old man was insanely talented, he'd balance the dinner bowls on the tip of his toes and flick them up high in the air to catch them on his head.
Epic shot... COMME DES FUCK DOWN
