With Patience and Saliva…

waterfallsandcaribous:

Further to our blog the other day on The Umbrella Revolution we want to share this rather poignant perspective on what’s happening here in Hong Kong currently. Yes, it’s less “pictorial” but the content offers an extremely relevant and interesting perspective on the Revolution. Note, this is the first time we have EVER re-blogged something, which says a lot…

2014-10-01 21.55.54Those of you who haven’t been living under a rock will have by now noticed that Hong Kong is in the full grip of an Umbrella Revolution. The phrase was coined on social media to illustrate the participants of Occupy Central’s use of umbrellas to protect themselves from rain – and tear gas – all while standing strong on the issue of Universal Sufferage.

This student-led movement (note, it’s not…

Where For Art Thou Pineapple?

20140731_150741

Often we’ve ventured forth with gluttony in our eyes/belly (where exactly DOES gluttony reside?) and researched for our adoring public certain food styles or items.  This usually requires a “thought process” – and we use that term lightly given what we’re about to share – that looks something like this:

Dan or  H-J

“This _________ is amazing.”

“Mmm…maybe we should try ALL of the _______ [insert…

Hong Kong – The Coffee Edition

Quickly upon meeting any of team waterfalls&caribous, you learn something pretty crucial about us – we love coffee and have been known to go to great lengths to hunt it out, to binge drink it in the spirit of research, to cry over it (well, Dan has), to make friends and enemies according to our coffee experiences – Dan has even been known to pull his barista weight and get himself behind the…

Macau’s Other Attraction

2013-10-11 15.29.13

Macau seems to be the kinda place that polarises opinion of expats/tourists here – people either love it or hate it.  We get personally get really, really sad (and a little bit offended on Macau’s behalf) when people fall into the latter of those two categories but can fully understand that factors like bad weather, agoraphobia, ochlophobia, an aversion to tackiness or conversely an aversion to…

A North Point Tour of Hong Kong Eating Styles – Cha Chaan Teng Edition

A certain picture of a certain breakfast item long held our interest in Hong Kong…but the mere thought of its weirdness put us off actually trying it for the longest of times.  You’re probably thinking something offal based or super spicy right?  What food could possibly have the team at waterfallsandcaribous somewhat reluctant to fill their bellies with something new and undiscovered?!  The mind…

Street Art on Hong Kong Island – Sheung Wan from Day One

IMG_0991

While we have a lot going on at the moment, we’ve always prided ourselves on maintaining balance.  Then we forgot to blog for like, um, 6 weeks…oops.  However, we’ve recently picked up the slack again and sitting down to think about it all/look through some of our pics, led us to realise just how much we still have to share with you all from this amazing city…and that we better get onto it with…

A North Point Tour of Hong Kong Eating Styles – Roast Meat Edition

2014-05-31 21.32.08

So a while back we started a series with the intention of introducing you all to the various foods that Hong Kong is famous for, by journeying through our favourite neighbourhood, North Point.  North Point not only has everything, it has some of the ‘the best’ of everything AND it’s where we live, allowing us to fill up and roll home.  That’s a trifecta of foodie goodness if ever we heard one.

Just Another Street In Hong Kong – Don’t Worry, There’s Food…

2014-04-03 12.58.42

Hong Kong is full of more nooks and crannies that you can shake a stick at.  Led usually by our appetites to some great dining experience we want to try, the happy by-product is often the discovery of not only great food but also of some wicked area we had no idea really existed. In this case, copious articles, blogs and reviews has led us to become aware of the existence of a dessert that…

While we do have an imminent and exciting new addition to the waterfallsandcaribous team, we haven’t wanted to bore/gross out our current readership with too many details of babies.  However, in the interests of thanking the people responsible for a windfall of a beautiful prize pack we’re shamelessly promoting a link to H-J’s bit-on-the-side blog, adumplingintheoven.wordpress.comand, more…
