Golden Computer Centre

The Golden Computer Centre in Sham Shui Po is the mother of all IT centers... anywhere in the world! Decades ago, when I was first in Hong Kong, it was the place to go for all things pirated... movies, software, video games, you name it, they had it. It's been totally cleaned up and now is strictly monitored by IPR authorities, yet still today it has the broadest and cheapest selection of hardware and software for enthusiasts to buy and build their own computers, as well as to check out the latest and greatest in cameras and electronic gadgets.

It's also where earlier this year I found another cool car reflection for James' Weekend Reflections.

My husband loves computer centers, and we have been to a few. Not sure if we have been to this one, but I'll let him know anyway. Thanks.

if you go to Singapore, it is Sim LIm square of Funan centre. I hate the place because I am not a geek.

EG Wow said...

You certainly DO get around! Yes, a very cool reflection!

Hong Kong is the place for all the colorful neon lights.

Re my mall photos were taken in low light and I only adjusted the white balance. There was so much light at the mall entrance, and I had to darken the color.
