Faye Wong – Eyes on Me

I vividly remember the first time I played Final Fantasy VIII. I was amazed by the cutting-edge CG movie my PS1 managed to render…

“Eyes on Me” is the main theme song for the game and it is first time available in vinyl. The single is released in Japan only and I imported this from a Japanese online record store, who impose a purchase limit per person.

Recommendations: both songs: if you feel nostalgic for Faye Wong and Final Fantasy VIII, this is a must-get. It is a pleasure to go down the memory lane. Otherwise, if you only like pop songs or Faye Wong, I would recommend getting her album LPs than this particular single.

Ngau Tau Kok Market / 牛頭角街市

I went to this market and the cooked food centre for breakfast with a friend and instantly fall for its nostalgic and chaotic nature. The camera metering was failing a bit here (or it’s me failing), definitely need to revisit this place.

Kowloon Reservoir / 九龍水塘

Kowloon Reservoir was first completed in 1910, the first reservoir in “New Territories”. Today it is part of Kam Shan Country Park in Sha Tin District.

The main dam is one of the declared monuments along with other 4 structures at the reservoir. Its signature curved dam makes it special in Hong Kong and very easy to recognize.

Most of the macaques (monkeys) in Hong Kong reside in this area, do not bother them as they can be very offsensive, especially if you carry food. I was lucky to take a few shots at them, before they shouted at me.
