A Goodbye BBQ, HK Style

Right in front of my old HK apartment building.

My computer's been in the shop recently, but now I have it back all wonderful and shining. I should get back to posting now!

This particular event happened awhile ago but I never got around to putting it up. I might as well do it now!

There were two brothers who owned a drink stand on the corner of our block. I'd stop and talk to them as I walked by, usually when I was coming home from work. They'd teach me a lot of words in Cantonese! They also sold these delicious meat sticks that I loved to get.

They were friends with a lot of other guys in the neighborhood, so I met the others too. When I told them that I was leaving, they decided to have a farewell barbecue for me. I was definitely game. Here are some pictures from that deliciously wonderful event!

Some neighbors, cooking up a storm.

Me, pretending to roast a duck.

One of the brothers and the chairman of our building.

Eating a delicious piece of pork.

Some people kiss fish instead of frogs.

Yes, I tried a piece of each.

Me and the finished roasted duck. I didn't really help with it at all; I'm just pretending.

The pig! They roasted him so he's all crispy on the outside.

Knives. Hehehehe.

I got to make the first chop.

Readying the pig for consumption.

As you can see, it was a wonderful, carnivorous night. It was a great way to say goodbye to the neighborhood. I think I'll always miss the beautiful, fun, little Ap Lei Chau.

I like comments just as much as fresh guacamole and chips! Well, maybe not quite that much...
