Week-Ender #81

To start off the week-Im going to do something different. All images captured with an iPhone 3gs on various photography apps that captures images in square format documenting parts of a recent Hong Kong trip.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The iPhone 3gs has a 3 megapixel camera that spits out images at roughly 2000 x 1500 pixel at 72 dpi. It’s a little digital camera without all the bells and whistles. The resulting images are like the plastic film cameras popular now a days without the wait time for developing negatives and prints.

Very cool, very convenient and very stealthy.

and have a pleasant flight.

國際金融中心商場 International Finance Center, Hong Kong

The IFC in Central, Hong Kong serves as an early check in for your flight. Get there a few hours early as there is a huge mall at the finance center just an elevator ride from the check in counters. Have a good meal, shop for gifts and then hop on the train to the airport for your flight. The place is huge so make sure there are hours to spare.

Tasty Congee & Noodle Wantun Shop 正斗粥麵專家 (Shop 3016-18, IFC, 2295 0101) first opened in Hong Kongs Causeway Bay area and has been preparing it’s traditional congee and noodle dishes for the last 60 years. Apparently, the stirred fried noodle with beef is the ‘best in the world’, according to one famous Chinese food critic. There was much more food at the table but my stomach got the better of me…

Tasty is open daily between 11:30am and 11pm.
