27 May 2016 - Hong Kong Day 2: Comix Home Base, Tai Yuen Toy Street

Once the rain got lighter, we walked to a building called Comix Home Base in Wan Chai. The ground floor of this historic building comprises comics and animation-related stores, food and beverage facilities, and a 300-metre public open space.
The first floor is a restaurant. On the second floor, there are art-related stores, exhibition space, and more importantly, a comics and animation resource centre known as "Comix Salon". Spaces for exhibitions and events that promote comics, animation, digital entertainment, art, and culture are available on the third and the fourth floors.
We decided to visit the arts exhibition here since admission is free.
There are many arts exhibits that are made up of different materials.
The following art piece was actually made up of thousands of badges if you look closer.
And following is a wall made up of HK$10.
Here's a video of some of the exhibits that we saw.
As we were about to leave the building, we saw the below sign saying Tropical Cyclone No 1 is in effect.  So now we can say we had experienced Cyclone?  :-P
Before this trip, we had promised Jerlene and Javier to bring them to a toy street where they can each choose a toy they want.  They had been looking forward to this day and that's where we headed next. Tai Yuen Street (Toy Street) is just across Johnston Road from Wan Chai MTR station.  We spent about an hour visiting each and every toy shops along the street.  Jerlene and Javier were overwhelmed by all the toys around and cannot decide what to choose.
They finally got what they want after much consideration.  :-)
Our next destination, The Peak!
