At Wan Chai looking back on Central along the waterfront
This morning the weather didn't look too promising. I was surprised to see the Hong Kong Observatory had raised the amber rainstorm warning and thunderstorm warning.
Then the sky went completely gray, with lots of mist in Kennedy Town, blowing eastwards in huge gusts of wind. At one point I saw a piece of paper blown up to the height of my flat (very high up), which was quite scary.
And then came the rain, but for my area, it wasn't heavy rain, though I heard other parts of the city there was a heavy downpours.
I luckily managed to evade the rain and in the afternoon the skies finally decided to cooperate and by late afternoon patches of blue skies could be seen through the clouds.
I had an appointment at IFC and afterwards dinner at the Hong Kong Convention Centre.
Instead of taking the MTR, I decided to walk along the waterfront which was a good decision as the temperature was slightly cool. Along the way I took a few pictures, and this one was the best, though if I waited a bit longer, the sky would have turned more pink and mauve.
Nevertheless it kind of encapsulates the moody weather we had today -- it was as if it couldn't make up its mind on what to throw at us. Hopefully the weekend will be better.
