PERSONAL | dark side





I find it hilarious that locals sometimes refer to Kowloon as "The Darkside". To be fair, this part of the city is far grittier than the Hong Kong side, with all its gentrification and fancy hotels. Even though I too have been converted to the more expat friendly Hong Kong side, the Kowloon side still holds some significance for me since I did spend a majority of my childhood there.

The other day I had this strong urge to visit some of my old haunts, which included the neighbourhood of my childhood best friend and my old kindergarten. I had to take a photo of that ol' zebra crossing because of the story about this one time when my mum came to pick me up from school. I was always really excited when my mum came to pick me up from school - dunno why since she did it everyday..? (Children logic!!!!) Anyways, when I ran towards her I ended up tripping over my own feet and then face planting in front of the whole school. It was a little embarrassing, but more of a laugh than anything.
