“…..DAY TWO… intriguing adventuring recreating walks… also it’s been a while on a Star Ferry ……”
There’s this scene in “its Already Tomorrow in Hong Kong” on the Star Ferry as it transits from Hong Kong Island, from Victoria Harbour terminal towards Tsim Sha Tsui… Where an expat whom reading lost into middle of a novel, in the middle front of an old colonial style Star Ferry, then takes his eyes from the book that he’s reading, to the view of the Hong Kong night city scene until he see someone in the close distance, in that close distance he knew only recent years ago, from that he walks towards to her, making sure it’s that American Chinese girl with her long black hair pony tailed wearing that red silk blouse, with black skirt, , whom recently arrived lost in Lan Kwai Fong long time ago that he met…walking up to her.. Finding it’s her as they reconnected their moments back years ago… “Ruby…!”
That’s also my reconnection, as walk downwards towards Tsim Sha Tsui Star ferry terminal, Orthough not meeting up with Ruby- Jamie Chung Orthough like too with Josh –Bryan Greenberg, in getting to know more of that scene.. Looking at that reconnection with that scene in finding where point in scene is where he sat, also where she stood looking outwardly into the Hong Kong Island night life filled with that city neonic landscape… But seeing that scene unraveling backwards as I walked to the Ferry Terminal, in which finding that terminal, is relatively easily to find with that nostalgic feel as I walk towards the terminal, along the finding the bus terminal that interconnects in between the local various neighborhoods in Hong Kong..
Walking towards the terminal, looking at the classical timeless blue space age, space station construction beams that seen from by childhood they were freshly painted, as now the place is now seeming has shown it well truly age… You can see the place changed in the progression of time from its World War Two construction, as I walked under its 1960’s space age framed type much needing painted roofing… noticing the pavement hasn’t really changed much from my childhood years, with only finding it matured age fully with worn out gracefully smoothed as it been constantly walked throughout time..
