Wan Chai, Hong Kong

Hello people! Sorry for not posting anything in these last few days...even though it was a weekend and i had spare time..well, thats what it may seem, but i actually didnt...and you surely are not interested to hear the details...i know :)
I sometimes wonder how many different views can you get from Hong Kong...sometimes when i look at my Hong Kong postcards, i feel as if im seeing the same buildings, but from a different angle, and with different colours, in daylight, at night, with fireworks....but i do love them all, esp. since all HK postcards are huge...
Wan Chai is a metropolitan area situated at the western part of the Wan Chai District on the northern shore of Hong Kong Island, in Hong Kong.
When i take a look at the sentence above, it feels as an equation, that you need to divide to the smallest elements, or vice versa...you need to gather all the elements in order to reach a whole number of a fraction...in this case, Hong Kong being the 'whole' element, while all the rest being the constitute elements, where Wan Chai is the smallest one...am i making sense? I know im not...
Anyway....Wan Chai is one of the busiest commercial areas in Hong Kong with many small and medium-sized companies. Wan Chai North features office towers, parks, hotels and an international conference and exhibition centre. As one of the first areas developed in Hong Kong, the locale is densely populated yet with noticeable residential zones facing urban decay. There are many unique buildings and skyscrapers, most notably the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre, Central Plaza and Hopewell Centre.
I thought that Hopewell Centre had to do something with charity or some of those sacred places which give you hope....i guess i take things for granted more than needed sometimes...
