Happy 2009 from Hong Kong!

If you find this video a little lacking consider also that it cost me about four thousand bucks to shoot!

It’s my own fault, really… I should have secured myself a better viewing spot for the famous Hong Kong Harbour fireworks show  much earlier in the evening. As it happened, I walked out of my hotel at around 11:45pm and could only get about ten steps towards the water before a sea of other revellers stopped me dead in my tracks. Here’s as far as I got, courtesy of Nokia Maps:

Of course I’m not just here to ring in 2009 some thirteen hours before my friends back in Toronto… More posts are on the way — in the meantime, check in on my dedicated Flickr set for the story so far.

    Happy new year! My brother lives on the south side of HK harbour — I’ll have to check with him to see if he got to see the fireworks.

    Still, your experience probably beats the heck out of watching Gord Martineau in Nathan Phillips Square….

    Cheers,

    Ed
