In search of better fitting clothes and some lens for my baby, D3100, I headed to Mong Kok.
I often heard that this is one of the densest place in Hong Kong but I was surprised at how DENSE it really is. Considering that it was raining that time, there are still a lot people in the streets shopping for whatnots. I almost feel agoraphobic already.
Previously, I already searched the web for reliable camera shops in Mong Kok and found Wing Shing Photo Supplies and most of the shops mentioned in this site. But I decided against buying because it was raining and I don’t want to get my new baby wet. Yes, even if it’s boxed. 😉
I was supposed to check the Ladies Market but the Esprit outlet signage lured me from the destination in mind.
And it was such a pleasure to shop there. Not only for their prices but the staff as well. They were friendly and helpful too.
I managed to get myself a shirt, slacks and a casual dress. The good thing is, if your bill is HKD600, you get a HKD100 discount. So I got my mom a small bag to complete the purchase. When I converted it to PHP, I really got a steal on this one! And I’m definitely going back. 😉
But this last experience was something I won’t likely to forget. On the way home, I rode the metro and in front of me was a couple. The girl got the creamiest complexion I have ever seen and I’m almost green with envy. Until she raised her arm. OMG! There was some serious growth in there. I swear. I expected that from other nationalities but Asian?! That hairy experience left me a scarred woman. LOL.
From the Mong Kok MTR station, take exit D3. When you reach the top of the escalator, you will be greeted with a street full of camera shops and outlet stores.
There are street signs as well that will lead you to the Ladies Market if you want to check it out.
