Hong Kong Adventures: Days 2-3

20141108_173557

I had a wedding to attend on my second day at Hong Kong, which meant it was WEDDING BANQUET TIME! Food at Marco Polo Hotel was amazing (and I expected no less), but I also had some pretty awesome fast food before I went to the banquet. And pretty awesome food after too.

The picture above is a set up from the Hong Kong protesters in Causeway Bay. It’s really organized and pretty clean. Just terribly inconvenient if you’re trying to cross the street.

YAT LOK RESTAURANT! YAY!

FRIED CRISPY CHICKEN! After this point, no one was eating the fried rice or shrimp dumpling soup so the waiters laid it out and then whisked it out almost right away. I didn’t even get to eat them…
