Took a nice weekend away from Taipei to Hong Kong with the wife, meeting up with Mike Pacifico and his younger brother Anthony in Hong Kong. It honestly reminded me of NYC's Chinatown. One major (positive) difference I noticed between Hong Kong and Taipei is that the former lacks scooters and street vendor stalls, which was a refreshing change. England must have implemented some strict regulations during its 99-year administration of the island. I hope that the Cantonese keep it up.
