Good Spring Herbal Tea

herbaltea(Leica D-lux 5)

Chinese herbal tea is a folk-medical kind of tonic popular among the locals. There is a great variety of herbal teas of which the most common are for dispelling the heat-evil, a Chinese traditional medicine term referring to the hotness-related illnesses like dry eyes.  For whatever uses, a bowl (usually filled in a bowl) of iced Chinese herbal tea is always refreshing, comparable to a glass of lemon squash if you asked me.  If you’re not sure where to try’em in Hong Kong, today’s shot features the Good Spring in Central. You can’t miss it:

Low Angle

crossingroad(Leica D-lux 5)

For this shot I didn't have the camera hung around my neck and pressed against my chest blind-shooting.  I have been either on a crutch or whisked around in a wheelchair after seriously and completely tearing apart one of the three tendons bonding the foot to the lower leg.  I stepped down on the wrong stair.  But as a photography enthusiast, I am still shooting in the street even on the wheelchair.  So if you're around town and bump into a silly person shooting in the wheelchair, come over to say hi; it's likely me.

Bu Zai Go

bowljelly(Ricoh GX200)

Buzaigo, or literally Bowl Pudding, is a special traditional Hongkonger’s confectionery which you won't wish to miss. There are two favours, namely, the cane-sugar and white-sugar.  While you need someone who know the way to get one, there is a kiosk (left) at the heart of Central selling old-style confectionery including buzaigo. It is quite busy during lunch hour.
