Analogue Adventures – Orient Escapade 1982 – Hong Kong

All photos taken on May 7, 1982.

This was to be our last day in Hong Kong and it would be another day full of adventure and cultural experiences. All except, the Western style buffet breakfast, which was once again in the Bauhania Room at our hotel.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

    1. We were not above trying new foods, but this one gave us all pause as well as the bloody chicken. The rest of the food and evening were great. We had a wonderful time in and around Hong Kong. Thanks for reading Marion. Allan

  1. These pictures have come out very well Allan, perhaps the best collection so far. So many natural shots of people at work and play. The monkeys… ah, what a sad life. Or maybe they were happy getting fed and looked after, who knows.

    1. Thanks Leighton. Perhaps I was getting better at the use of the SLR or perhaps bolder at taking the shots. I missed getting one of the noodle maker though. The monkeys were a bit sad. Not so sure they had a happy life in this enterprise. Thanks for reading and for your thoughts. Allan

    1. It was for sure. The nightclub show was great and the food was interesting. We are also not oyster/mussel/clam people. Likely due to growing up on the prairies. We have tried them, but not our taste. Thanks for reading Lyssy. Allan
