More Details on In-laws' Visit

First, I updated the post "First Visitors" with some photos which left off at Sunday, September 29 in the in-laws visit. On Monday, I had to work so the in-laws and Erik took the gondola to the Big Buddha and had the vegetarian lunch at the Po Lin Monastery. In the evening, they went to the Peak to see the beautiful city views and had a nice dinner at the top of the mountain. Tuesday, they went out with Erik's colleagues for an authentic dim sum lunch. This place is excellent, and you need a local to take you there because there is zero English. Next, they went to Stanley and Stanley Market. Tuesday night, we checked out the Temple Street Night Market near our apartment and ate in the street at Temple Street Spice Crab.
Wednesday, was National Day, and I didn't have to work. We threw a small party to watch the fireworks from out balcony.
Thursday, it was onto another Buddhist temple the 10,000 Buddhas in Sha Tin which literally has 10,000 Buddhas. Next it was walking along the harbor in Tsim Sha Tsui. I met up with everyone for a drink at the Peak Bar in SoHo and dinner at Nepal, our favorite Indian restaurant.Friday was an easy day which included more shopping in the Jade Market (it is really overwhelming the first time) and a simple dinner in the mall near our apartment. This restaurant serves the ubiquitous Chinese noodle soup, but this shop makes handmade noodles on the premises. I blogged about it here. Friday night was frantic packing for Thailand.
More soon...
