Fast pace of city life. (Photo taken in the MTRs)
Madame Tussauds – Hong Kong.
One thing that most people did is to take photo with wax figures and sometimes you will just need to wait for your turn.
Everything was just fine till a group of tourists appeared. They are noisy and loud. They just push their way through the crowd, pushing everyone by force with their gigantic big fat body and cut queue ignoring those waiting for their chance.
After they took their shot, they even shout across the room and call their relatives or friends to join them.
Of course, there are also extremely nice and polite visitors to the museum 🙂
(i am not referring to me :P)
Anyway, below are some photos taken from the museum.

Tin Hua Temple (天后古廟)
Tin Hau also known as Mazu is a chinese goddess who protect seafarers such as fishermen and merchants on the sea. The temple is built in 1767 and is very well preserved.
On one of the wall in the temple, there is a tiger skin. This is the skin of a tiger that appear innearby the village. The skin is later preserve to ward off the evils spirits.
There are also many other god/goddess being worshiped in the temple.
Murray House. Other than it is an old restored colonial building with shops/restaurants in it, personally I don’t find anything else interesting. 😛
