Mongkok Maze: Of Ladies, Men & Goldfish

Star Wars originated from Mongkok.

Well, at least Princess Leia's hairstyle did.

What you're looking at here is one of the stalls at Ladies' Market (Tung Choi Street) which sells anything & everything that a woman might ask for, from LV handbags right down to the oversized grandma underwear.

All of the goods are extremely branded, but extremely cheap.

Some stalls even have the certificate of authenticity to prove the originality of their counterfeited goods.

Mongkok is basically a labyrinth of streets which are all interconnected in one way or another. We started somewhere at Ladies Market, & then somehow & somewhere, we got to Men's Market.

In the end, we ended up at Goldfish Market.

Looking at all this, I think Hong Kong has come a long way.

We're talking about a place where they used to eat dogs, cats, monkey's brains & anything that moved.

It's comforting to know that now they're rearing birds & fishes, instead of eating them.
