Day two in Hong Kong and Scaramouchine hit the malls. Scaramouchine is always awestruck by the sheer availability of product in Hong Kong. Everything you want all in one compact area. The whole time she is shopping the Clash song “Hateful” runs through her head: “Anything I want, he gives it to me, anything I want, he gives it but not for free. . . . ”
You can have anything you want in Hong Kong, for a price. What a price! What a selection! And what lovely air-conditioned palaces to spend you day in when the monsoon weather hits.

The IFC Mall. Scaramouchine loves the cathedral atmosphere, where the dearly beloved customers are gathered together to . . spend a lot of money.
IFC is a great place to wait out the monsoon

After the storm: check out the rooftop gardens of the IFC Mall.
The Landmark has the Agnes B. store. Scaramouchine likes the café for a bit of coffee and lunch.

Gigantic billboards on the street depicting the young, the glamorous, the expensively groomed.
Harbour City is HUGE! Anything you want . . . Chanel, Gucci, Hermes, Parksons . . . .but on Friday night and Saturday afternoon the crowds are horrific!
