Surprisingly often, people ask me for recommendations. “Oh, a friend of mine is going to (insert name of city here). Do you have any recommendations?” Since I think the best way to explore a city is through the recommendations and experiences of people who know the city well, I spent some time this morning combining all of my entries from Hong Kong (along with a list of other favorite places that I didn’t have time to visit) into a Google Map. Many thanks to the many friends whose recommendations and suggestions ended up on this list.
Ha, that’s very nice of you and a good idea. I already made a list based on your recommendations and retrieved your maps. This list plus maps now lives in my pocket notebook (so I don’t look too touristy when I need to look for directions). Do I understand you correctly that we can ask for more cities? How about … Taipei and Tokyo. *duck*
Bravo Chris – seriously, this should be your next career.
Good Chris! That’s a lot of delicious food! I have to use this as a guide too!
@beowulf222 – Already have Tokyo, Nick. Check the left column on my blog’s main page, about halfway down. I’ll get Taipei and New York done, too.@CurryPuffy – More than half of the recommendations came from you!@ElusiveWords – Eating and making maps? Sign me up! =D
@christao408 – Oh, thanks. I never looked at the left column much. My bad. Thaaaanks!
Now if I can figure out a way to retire in the next 4 years, I can start my world tour! I think you would make a fantastic “secret shopper” – in restaurants!!
So organized… I actually do the same for friends who want to visit LA for Asian food. I just copy and past the e-mail over and over.
Nice summary!I’ll need that when I go to Hong Kong.Can I eat the boat?! 😀
@yang1815 – Too much fibre.@Wangium – Yeah, I realized after a while that since I was being asked so often, I should just keep Word docs that I can update as needed and copy and paste. Bangkok, Tokyo, SF, Italy, Hong Kong… the list grows.@murisopsis – Well, I’ll try to keep the list growing so you have plenty of destinations by then.
the last pic….Chix feet…..looks so cool! seems like ‘The Last but not least’ meaning…
@agmhkg – Actually, those are deer tendons, not chicken feet! =D
haha…..it does look similar just from a quick glance 😛
