A Day at Causeway Bay

Causeway Bay (铜锣湾) in Hong Kong is quite a well-known place in which a restaurant in Kuching is named after it. However, dining in this restaurant is no way near the atmosphere on the busy streets.






The wet market was really an eye-opener for me. I haven't seen so much living seafood in my life! All this while, I have only seen most of them on the dining table.
















Causeway Bay is also a place where people flock there to by the dried sea produce. I am not sure whether it is cheaper there, but it is definitely fresher.






Besides sea produce, some Chinese herbs are also available. It is the Chinese way of life to use sea produce and herbs to replenish the nutrition of the body.




Although bird's nests are not sea produce, they are also available here.




These are the Chinese mitten crabs (大闸蟹) which can be very expensive. I had it once only when my sister-in-law brought them back from Shanghai.

Wombok> Is it?! I didn't know that cos'I didn't watch the movies.

Terri> Yes, those are mitten crabs or normally known as hairy crabs. Those big ones were really expensive, HKD300 for a catty, if I have not mistaken.
