Setting up shop on Temple Street

 The Temple Street Night Market is a big tourist attraction.  Every day, starting around 3 PM, vendor set up their stalls.  They pull out their carts from storage, assemble the stalls, and lay out their ware.  Some time in the darkest hours at night, they disassemble the stalls, and store away their goods.  Hours later, in mid-afternoon, they start again.   It is a hard way to make a living.  

There are actually two sections of the Night Market.  The goods sold at the section south of Kansu Street tend to be more expensive.  The stalls are more elaborate.  The vendors also tend to be younger.

In the section north of Kansu Street, the good tend to be cheaper.  The stalls are less elaborate - some are no more than just simple tables.  The vendors also tend to be older.  Even the Night Market is stratified.

Here are some photos of the vendors setting up their stalls on Temple Street on a recent Sunday afternoon.  Can you tell whether they are in the north section? or the south section?

Haha, that's a good comprehension exercise (just kidding) :D

吃掉社會﹕香港精神?心領了! This morning I was reading this passage when I was eating my breakfast. Not very inspiring, I would say, but I think he questioned something (out loud) that I always wanted to question. (Oh, and, the author happen to be a teaching staff of PolyU too)

Greetings, I do believe your blog could possibly be having browser compatibility issues.
Whenever I take a look at your web site in Safari,
it looks fine however when opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some overlapping issues. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, great site!

I hardly leave a response, but I read some of the remarks on this page "Setting up shop on Temple Street".

I do have some questions for you if you do not mind.

Could it be just me or do some of these remarks appear like they are left by brain dead people?
:-P And, if you are posting at other sites, I'd like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Would you post a list of the complete urls of all your shared sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
