We travelled from Sha Tin to Tsim Sha Tsui. It was still early for Symphony of Lights. And shopping was the easiest and most preferred way to kill time.
You are not going home with empty hands.
The Avenue of Stars was located along Victoria Harbour Front, Tsim Sha Tsui, and that was also the best viewpoint for Symphony of Lights. As compared to Hollywood Walk of Fame, I found that I could recognise more Hong Kong stars.

Symphony of Lights was staged at 8pm. On Monday, Wednesday and Friday, the soundtrack was in English; on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday it would be in Chinese; and Sunday it would be in Cantonese. I was quite disappointed with the presentation as it had nothing special and was quite boring. Anyway, spending half an hour watching Hong Kong night scenery with breezing winds was not a bad idea.

In Tsim Sha Tsui, we also saw Mister Softee(富豪雪糕) . Mister Softee was originated in United States, was introduced to Hong Kong since 1970s. So, it was childhood memory for many Hong Kong people.

The Sweet Dynasty(糖朝) that we did not have a chance to try.
We had not tried any Hong Kong style roast meat until that very day. So we decided to have that for dinner.
Wing Hap Lung(永合隆) was famous for its roast pork. Jacky Chan once ordered one whole roast pig from this restaurant for his father’s birthday.

You can opt for the rice to be served in bowl or plate. I opted for bowl. A bowl of rice topped with your selection. Did it not give a taste of old style restaurant? The first one was roast duck and boiled chicken with rice(烧鸭和白鸡饭）.
The second bowl was roast pork with rice(烧肉饭). Do not be cheated by the appearance. The roast pork was much better than it looked. And it was definitely better than the roast duck and chicken. If I am to go again, I will go at lunch time. Not many choices were left when we were there because we were late. Or else I would have tried their golden chicken(金钱鸡). It was sold out.
