The stores and 鏞記 Yung Kee

Is Hong Kong still a shopper’s paradise?
Coach handbags is everywhere, next to boldest names, like Tiffany and LV .. I spot this little thing after lunch at the famed duck restaurant 镛记酒家 – 鏞記 Yung Kee.

initial: the place fo true style seekers looking for something different

It’s different .. but the name plate is missing an r

Duck is one of my favored food .. so it’s fitting to dine here .. The duckie is good ..

The subways ..

Frankfurt (am Main – on the River Main) reminds me of Toronto or Philadelphia – practical and inexpensive. Now they’re armed with subway, navigating the city becoming event more convenient. Talking about subway, Underground, S-Bahn, Tram, etc to the Germans while Metro for Parisians, it’s amusing to see that there are plenty tall fare gates guard the Paris Metro (and plenty people trying to beat it, some due to malfunction .. ) while German’s subway were wide open, without a hint of gates, purely on honor system. Two countries share long border but drastically different.

Fare gates in Paris - is it necessary .. or .. inferior ?

The Korean garden in Frankfurt

July 21, 2010

The 4,800-square-metre Korean Garden (Koreanischer Garten) in the Grüneburg Park (Grüneburgpark .. The Rothschild) originated as part of South Korea’s presentation as the guest of honour at the 2005 Frankfurt Book Fair, and was a gift to the city of Frankfurt am Main. This exotic treasure has been designed in the style of traditional Korean scholars’ gardens, which since the 16th century have served as havens for artists and intellectuals. The garden should therefore also be a refuge for resting and meditation for residents of Frankfurt.
