We are meeting at 8am by the fountain on the upper level of the exchange square. We will then take bus 70 and the fare is about HK$4.7 each way. It will takes us about 30 minutes to get to the Aberdeen Bus Terminal.


We have 2 groups combined together *29th Oct and 30th Oct) for one big group!!

Morning time shooting Aberdeen Fishermen and Boat, then follow by Lunch at the Aberdeen Fish Market Canteen (香港仔魚類批發市場內的食堂)

Lunch at 12pm: + - HK$330 per person, G/F, 102 Shek Pai Wan Rd, Aberdeen, 2552 7555. Daily 5am-2.30pm. 

 
Aberdeen was a pirate's den two centuries ago before growing into a fishing village. But with today's skyrocketing cost of real estate, many high-rise developments are becoming backdrops to Aberdeen's Typhoon Shelter, towering above the numerous junks and sampans that sail daily to the Aberdeen Wholesale Fish Market.



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Aberdeen Wholesale Fish Market Canteen has been operated by one family for several decades. Situated inside the Aberdeen Wholesale Fish Market, this cha chaan teng serves typical instant noodels with fried egg and sausage, milk tea and French toast to the various fishermen, seafood wholesalers and buyers from the early morning hour of 4am. But by noon, it proudly presents its diners one of the freshest and tastiest seafood meals in the city. With its close proximity to vendors that distribute a large share of live-seafood imported to Hong Kong, the canteen serves only the freshest daily catch available in the simplest settings. 
We'll be having lunch in the hidden gem.

I hope the participants are willingness to be the Next Event Host for the same event bringing more members to have the same experience!!

    Juliana, if you come late, you can still find us easily. Take the bus at IFC. Use bus No.7 or 91 or 94. It will take you to Aberdeen Fish Market. You'll see the fishing boats. Get off when you see a small beige building on your left called Fish Marketing Organization. On the right, you will see a shopping centre called ABBA in big red letters. Yes, like the pop group ABBA. That's where you get off. Then call me on 6977-1080. We should be in the vicinity.

  • Cool J.

    @Ron, I have plan to have events of Sunrise shots on Tai Mo Shan later....

    September 9, 2011

  • Cool J.

    There is possible, it depends the organizer. If sunrise shots there, you have to be there 4am, then you spend a long day there.
    For me, I want to take shots on Boat+Fishermen+Modern Building as back drop....

    September 9, 2011

  • ron

    Can we catch the morning sunrise or evening sunset? Or better still, when the fishermen are preparing to move out with the tide or coming in after a catch. Timing is very important for a dramatic shot. Good lighting and full of action.
