Another one bites the dust

I’m talking about shops in Causeway Bay, where I live.

Hi, there, 9J here.

Anita Maria needs to buy a gift for a friend who’s getting married, so we went to a trusted old favorite, G.O.D.

It has been rumored that the big (I suspect original) branch in Causeway Bay is being forced to move out by sky-high rent.  It has proven true today.

Just when we thought this shop, which is big enough to have branches all over town including one in Central and another in the Peak, would not be affected, Hong Kong real estate moguls once again showed us who is boss.

The consolation is, there will still be G.O.D. shops around, we just need to go further afield.

DutchJ visiting the Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park

Since DutchJ has come to live with us, she has been to Macao and the Central Library, so Anita Maria decided to bring her to a local place that even she hasn’t been to – The Dr. Sun Yat Sen Memorial Park.
