I have lived in Hong Kong on and off since I was 9 years old but I have only recently discovered the covered hawker fabric market at Sham Shui Po.
Its a magical place, with fabric which I assume are the left- overs from factory orders piled high to the corrugated roof. I left with some treasures, and made my way home by bus and foot down the busy Nathan road and on to my favourite method of transportation the Star Ferry.
It was packed with tourists enjoying the sun setting over the harbour and I sipped my soy latte and breathed in the happy and excited atmosphere .
