So the second day of my trip happened to coincide with the Double Ninth Festival (Chung Yung Festival). The Chinese calendar is usually a month slower than the Gregorian calendar, which means if you'd like to be there during the Double Ninth Festival, you'll have to be in Hong Kong in October. It is a public holiday, where visit the graves of their ancestors to pay their respects.
Oh, Hong Kong. A few of the people expressed with a little disbelief when I mentioned it was only my first time visiting, considering the city is one of the most frequent escape for Singaporeans alongside Taiwan.
Despite a few of the aforementioned people's enthused promise it would be fun, that was not the case. That though, should not be misunderstood for the city's shortcomings but rather my own travel preference.
With the impression that the housing and population situations in Hong Kong is very similar to Singapore's (or worse), I was anticipating my photos would be more influenced and inspired by its people but it turns out I was more overwhelmed by the even higher number of skyscrapers back home.
Here are some of the scenes I have captured with my phone and camera on the first day of my visit. I spent it walking around the neighbourhood on foot, taking in the streets and its people around me more often than taking photos.
