Thursday Thirteen - Hong Kong


I thought I would make this week's T13 about our home! I was made in Hong Kong. Grew up in Hong Kong. And now live and work in Hong Kong. My parents and brother and sister are also here and I have no intention of leaving. In the past I did leave for university in Canada and then the UK as well as for humanitarian trips to different places, but I am back to stay. For good! I'm 31 years old and am sure this is where I am going to be for the rest of my life.

So, how did I get my three wonderful, incredible, super special kitties to Hong Kong? Sebastian came from the UK. I fostered him there and then fell in love with him and had to bring him back. It's a miracle that he managed to get on the plane with me and off the place with me and no quarantine!!!! (very unusual as HK is very fussy about what they let in!).

Starbuck and Torrey also had no quarantine as they came from Australia from a breeder.

All three settled into their new home with no problem. Now Hong Kong is their home and they will never leave either!

So, here is this week's T13 - a look at the home of Sebastian, Starbuck and Torrey!

At 8pm everynight, we have like a mini lights show.

Another pic of Hong Kong at night.

This is my local mall called 'New Town Plaza'.

Nathan Road. My doc is down here, but our vet is not.

One form of public transport... the Star Ferry.
I was on a ferry two nights ago.

Another pic of Tsim Sha Tsui. Our taxis are red.

We have lots of crowds.
I took this photo a few years ago with my phone.

HK has the island part and the peninsula part.
This is the island.

Our clock tower in Tsim Sha Tsui
by the Space Museum.

One of our bridges.

A photo taken from the Peak, showing most of Hong Kong.

The bridge out to the airport.

I hope you enjoyed seeing a little bit of where we live!

We LOVE it!

P.S. I still have flu but am feeling better! Thank you everyone who dropped me a lovely note to let me know you were thinking of me! The boys were great while I was sick - didn't knock anything over!

Thank you for all the wonderful pictures!!! It looks sooooo different from our home (the Sonoran Desert).
Do you cats have a balcony or any other form of outdoor experience?
Are there many cats in Hong Kong?
I am afraid I do not know a lot of your home... and it looks a bit scary to me - soooo many people...
Maybe a bit like New York?

Happy TT'ing!

Those photos are AMAZING. I absolutely love the night doesn't even look real.

We have photos this week at our blog (by a really good amateur photographer---not one of us!)

Great list the pictures of Hong Kong at night are beautiful Happy TT-

Daisy said...

That looks like a very exciting place to live! That first photo of the lights is beautiful. Like Karl, I was wondering, too, if many cats live in Hong Kong.

DrillerAA said...

The photos are spectacular.
However, it's just too many people in too small of a space to suit my lifestyle. I am glad that you love it though.
I am living in the opposite setting, small town USA and I love it. It was the subject my TT last week.
Happy TT
