Sunday's Grocery

Hong Kong
Sunday's Grocery, Hong Kong, Hong Kong
Sunday Is Better Than Others
The third installment by the team behind Yardbird and Ronin is called Sunday's Grocery. Located in up and coming Kennedy Town, it's a twist on the NYC style corner bodega. Here you can buy whiskey and other liquor that they serve at Ronin and Yardbird along with other merchandise like magazines, shirts, juice, condiments and a handful of prepared food items. While I visited I ordered the KFC (Korean Fried Chicken, not the Colonel), the chicken sando (sandwich), the falafel sandwich, market chips, and pickles. All were fantastic of course but my favorite was the chicken sando. To wash it down I had some Wilkinson Ginger Ale from Japan. Sunday's isn't close to an MTR stop so you definitely need to catch a bus, tram or taxi there. It's worth the visit for the food and possibly picking up some sake to go!

Panyee Island: A Floating Fishing Village
While boating through Phang Nga Bay in a friend's speed boat, we started hankering for some lunch. We asked our driver to take us somewhere to eat and he brought us to Koh Panyee, a floating fishing village which was built by Indonesian fishermen. With a population of 1600+ people, the island has a mosque, a school, a market, several restaurants and even a football pitch. To help supplement fishing, tourists were invited to visit the village and now is a popular stop for lunch for the boat tours coming through Phang Nga Bay.

The Big Buddha (พระพุทธมิ่งมงคลเอกนาคคีรี)

The Big Buddha (พระพุทธมิ่งมงคลเอกนาคคีรี), Karon, Thailand
The Bug Buddha
I was in Phuket just for 72 hours and I hadn't see a temple or Buddha yet. It felt wrong. We had a bit of time to kill before our driver was going to take us to the airport so we asked if he could take us to see the Big Buddha which sits on top of the Nakkerd Hills and can be seen from the distance. It doesn't feel so reverent there, more of a tourist attraction. But besides seeing the giant marble Buddha you get great views of Cha Long and Kata Bay as well.
