Avenue of Stars



So it was last week when we took some visiting cousins sightseeing around Hong Kong. You remember that junk I mentioned in an earlier post? Well, it was taken from the same waterfront where you’ll see this --


A sculpture of Bruce Lee, perfectly showcasing his fine physique.  Schwarzenegger once said: "Bruce Lee had a very—I mean a very defined physique. He had very little body fat. I mean, he probably had one of the lowest body fat counts of any athlete. And I think that's why he looked so unbelievable."

Josh wanted to do a Bruce Lee pose. What do you think?

All up and down the “walk,” there were stars on the ground with celebrities’ names. Most have their handprints and/or autographs. A few don’t. Here is Zoë trying to see if her hands are as big as this actress’.

Here are some “stars” that you might have heard of (or not) –especially if you are action movie buffs:

Jackie Chan. Who doesn’t know Jackie Chan?

Chow Yun Fat of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon fame. No handprint, no autograph.

Jet Li (Lethan Weapon 4, Romeo Must Die).

I was not very familiar with many of the names on the Avenue of Stars, but it was a pleasant walk along the waterfront anyway. It is also from here that you’ll get a very good view of the Symphony of Lights, which comes on every night at 8:00 pm. I’ve yet to see this, but it’s one listed on the guide books as a “must-see.” Maybe next time.

Not related, but I thought I’d send you off with a funny remark from Zoë:

I told her this morning that somebody will be going to their school to take their photos and that she should remember to smile. She then looked at me and asked, “Which body?”

Have a glorious weekend, y’all.

Love Zoe's comment about "which body"!! I think one of the best things about having kids is listening to the hysterical things they say!

Bruce Lee, Chow Yun Fat, Jet Li! A trifecta of fabulous-ness!
That pose with Josh is a GREAT photo! That is the type of thing I would blow up, frame and hang proudly for all to see. Nice!
