Along with HongKong’s culture-free civilized atmosphere, it is born to be a land that will never lack of new funny stuffs. Besides, the Asia Toy Show held in 2013 also whipped up a toy cyclone and attracted thousands of toy fans to come to HongKong  to join this toy carnival.

HongKong  has been a huge toys distribution and manufacturing center for years both in new-taged toys and the vintage toys. Sino Centre located in Nathan Road in Mongkok and Hottoys HK are two famous toys paradise selling the latest toys and the vintage one such as Gundam Model (most from BANDAI Corporation,JP ), MARVEL Toys, Twisted eggs (capsule toys ) and other Japanese anime, science fictions, animations (more of B-level) and records (Ani-BGM)

Another interesting vintage toys store named 80M BUS MODEL SHOP which is located in Langham Place also doing well in carring forward the traditional culture of HongKong Bus Transportation.

Well, and you can imagine,  the result  is gonna be a riot of chinese dolls, japanese anime, french maids, conan the barbarian and star wars:P

Encounter a bowl of noodles in the name of the old HK Immigration Era

6a8a11d8jw1ekkh319ci5j218g0xcwoeWhen it comes to noodles, the history of Chinese traditional dishes may tell a long long story.It is a kind of wheat-made  staple food and always,  catching people’s stomaches, especially  Chinese people, from those ancient times running  through thousands of years to now.

The special noodle store that is going to be introduced to you,  is a  typical family-chained store which is located in Sai Wan, HongKong. Every thing about this store appears in a totally retrospective way, all  the furnishings as well as the cookery are going on such a vintage atmosphere.

You will not only be served with delicious noodles, but also will have a general  glance of the early  HongKong Immigration History, and to experience abundant cultural symbols from Chiu Chow.

It is more of a cultural exploring than a simple meal.

The meet with that cloth shop is totally  a coincidence. That  day I got lost in  Sham Shui Po and wandered over to the shop, and was  immediately attracted by thousands of different fabrics.

All fabrics are arranged in neat  according to materials differed, and the shop was meanwhile crowded with people who are pointing  here by its fame, and was busying trying to work out a deal or to do some business negotiation.

The  cloth resources are from Japan, South Korea and Taiwan imported.

It is worth mentioning that,  the whole store is owned by  A Yin, who’s  entrepreneurial story  is quite inspiring, from the time living in the side room to now owned two shops in Sham Shui Po, her story is known as a modern version of Sham Shui Po Axin.

Living in a colorful faith, then every day can be a new poetic story.

Making absolutely catchy journals:From Writing to Drawing

It is all of a sudden for me to start creating those painted diaries.

The year when I was a sophomore year student, by the time one of my friends keep writing journals every day and always using a lot of exquisite cartoon stickers, masking tapes or other chic stuff I’ve not seen before.

I found it is quite interesting making journals in that way, for authoring innovative and unique content.The traditional writing mode appears to be boring compared with which I called “Drawing mode” , for you can directly express your feelings or even describe your experience through a  relevant paiting to deeply catch people’s eyes as well as to entertain yourself.

So, I decided to draw out my life in HongKong, with every wandering moment included, to point out  those  special stores I explored and  hopefully to remember those fancy stuffs by  using my pen.
