We did a day trip with the family to Sai Kung, a little town in Hong Kong by the sea, full of fresh seafood and locals alike. The weather was beautiful that day and my feet were sore from travelling (what blogger ever admits that!) so I figured I could be fashionably sporty in my new Nike pro leggings and Nike Lunarglides.

There were an abundance of fishing boats anchored at the pier selling their catch of the day, from crabs to sea cucumbers and other Asian delicacies that resembled elephant trunks. There were also interesting little shops selling homewares, souvenirs and trinkets. One of the highlights was a famous little bakery where there was a hefty queue to order freshly baked pineapple buns with a thick slice of butter in the middle. It was one of those messy but satisfying snacks where you get to lick your fingers one by one after you’ve finished your last bite.

Hong Kong, I miss your pineapple buns. Especially the ones that are freshly baked, sold by an old man at a bakery in Mongkok.
