Dim Sum and then Some

Today's agenda: dim sum and markets. My Aussie girls Lisel and Crystal joined us at Dim Tai Fung. Another yucky, cold day out so we warmed ourselves with hot tea and lots of food! Afterwards we headed to Mong Kok to check out some local markets.

Upon exiting my building, there was a traditional dragon dance going on. That will wake you up!

I tried to photograph the food, but I was enjoying it so much, I sort of forgot

Off to Mong Kok for the markets. First up, the flower market. Many of the stalls were closed but that didn't slow us down

A quick stop at a ceramic shop

Does anyone know what these are? They look like they are in the peony family, but wasn't sure


Not sure what these were besides ugly

Next stop: Bird market. Small and most of the shops were closed so this was a quick stop

The local bird vendors hard at work

The love birds were the sweetest

Not to be associated with the bird market

We tried to find the goldfish market. It appears to be more of a pet shop street. It was great except that it smelled strongly of stinky tofu

He's looking at you kid

Pets? Or for eating? Still up for debate
