A VISIT TO NGAU TAU KOK MARKET, HONG KONG

Hong Kong, Day 3 - Ngau Tau Kok Market

We started day 3 with a visit to Ngau tau Kok market. The local market is one of the best places to visit in order to get a glimpse into the real life of the local people. We started out on foot, just seven of us including Pete who came over to meet up with us at our apartment.

Pete led us by the interconnecting walkway and we came to a place where we saw people leaning over the railing. Some were looking up and some were looking down. Being curious people, we too joined in, wanting to know what was interesting up there or down. Of course, when we tried to see what was up there, we didn't see anything out of place but when we looked down this was what we saw on the ground.
Pete explained that this inflated air cushion was placed there to block the fall of a would be suicide jumper. Thank God we didn't have to watch a tragedy because a short while later, the firefighters left and everything was back to normal again.
Along the way, Pete also pointed out where a collection of old items from the older local community were on display.

Coconuts.
I should have bought some of these to try. These fruits or plums look juicy.

But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives:

love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness,

faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control.

There is no law against these things!

(Galatians 5:22-23, New Living Translation-NLT)

    1. There are similarities but they have many things which we do not have here. I wanted to try the fruit but we were on our way to Macau, didn't want to eat on the way or take along, very troublesome.

  6. I love the clams in the water. They all looks nice and healthy. I'm glad you didn't witness someone committing suicide by jumping. Life looks good in Hong Kong.

    Have a great day Nancy.

    1. Over here at our local market, the clams were not kept in water so they do not stay fresh for long. If we did, it would be very traumatic for us all. It would definitely spoil our holiday!

    Pretty much like the wet market here except that the frozen raw meats are placed in chillers. Fresh fruits & vegetables. ...

    1. Thank you, Amelia. I tried my best with my humble camera but sometimes the photos are not properly focus and they turned out blur. Still have a lot to learn.
