Hi Chris!  My name is Tiffany from Hong Kong!  Have you been to Hong Kong?  I just randomly found a postcard with street signs, hope you don't mind :p  These signs are located in Central, a busy district in Hong Kong, with a Soho area and lots of commercial buildings.  The first sign wrote "Lan Kwai Fong," which is a well-known Soho area with lots of bars and nightclubs.  You can go there when you come to visit to experience the night life of Hong Kong!
