On what I walk to see...

"Objects do not have any intrinsic meaning- that meaning is conferred on them by us- and that different people, and the same person at different times, may confer different meanings on the same object." (Hammersley, 1989, p. 135)

Chinese Lunar New Year's fireworks in Hong Kong

Saw the Chinese Lunar New Year's fireworks today in Hong Kong.

First time I saw fireworks in Hong Kong in situ and first time walking up and down the ordinarily busy street of Nathan Road!  (I am liking the feeling of walking up and down busy roads going against or along the direction of the traffic. 8-O lol)

Quite a trip getting out cause we were running around trying to look for an entrance to the MTR station that doesn't require me walking down for one simple reason, by that point, my body was mostly done and it only allowed me to do the horizontal move... big bad bug style or not.  Eventually, we figured out that you can take the escalator to go down to the isquare MTR station in the basement.

Yes, none of the escalators goes directly to the ground level.  Not even exit A as indicated in the map inside of the station. The only place you can enter or exit the MTR Tsim Sha Tsui station (尖沙咀站) without having to walk up and down them stairs is by going through the i Square entrance/exit.

Hope this helps.

Following is the clip I took for the Chinese Lunar New Year's fireworks in Hong Kong tonight.  If it is too long, feel free to skip to the end of the clip for the grand finale.
