Tai O Fishing Town

Went to a fishing town located on the west side of Lantau Island called Tai O. It was cloudy the whole day but really hot and stuffy. Took the ferry from Central Ferry Pier No.6 to Mui Wo Pier. Then took this CRAZY bus ride which reached Tai O at noon. It wasn’t a holiday so it was pretty quiet there, but I like it quiet since there wouldn’t be people stepping on my shoes or blocking my way when I’m taking photos. Wandered around the town, met this nice old man and he offered to take my friends and I out on his boat along the river. The ride was fun and I could feel the breeze, but I was afraid of falling off the boat because when the townspeople flush their toilets, the excrement goes down into the river. The village is full of houses in disrepair. A lot of residents discontinued fishing but there are still some salted fishes and tofu desserts around town.

My Grandfather’s Toy

Looked at some of my grandpa’s vintage toys and found this cowboy baby a little creepy but cute.  It’s only the size of a thumb and looks like it’s hand-made with clay. It’s dressed like a cowboy with two little gun holsters. I think it’s a nice collectible. I’ll be going to the Japanese toy exhibition this week which exhibits Mr. Kitahara’s lovely toy collection. I’m excited to see them.

Had a craving for tonkatsu so went to Butagumi Tonkatsu.. made a reservation for a table.. didn’t have to line up or wait.. but I ended up ordering the shrimp katsu. It’s served with shredded cabbage, rice and miso soup. Walked away with a full stomach. Happy with the dish, decent service and clean environment. It’s highly recommended.
