Throwback to Hong Kong

Some time back, 2 years ago to be exact, I made an impromptu trip to Hong Kong. To the extent that I only bought air tickets 2 days before I travelled. There was a Super Show concert to be held in Hong Kong and my friends were travelling there, so I thought why not join in the fun. It was a trip to recharge myself before I start on my new employment.

Though I couldn’t secure a concert ticket at the original price in the end, and I gave up on the concert. The trip still went well with many meet ups planned with old friends. Lots of good food, gossips and laughter sums it up to a wonderful healing trip.

As I put up at my Hong Kong friend’s house, it was the perfect chance to taste true blue delicacies that locals eat. My friend brought me to this breakfast store near her house.

The photo simply doesn’t do the curry fishball justice.

Ice lemon tea with lots of lemon slices.

The best siew mai I have ever eaten! Fish siew mai is soft and tender compared to the pork and chicken ones I usually have.

Of course, the highlight of the trip is Disneyland! I have heard so much about this place from friends who went. They told me rides were not exciting, which I agree. They said the place can be combed in one day, which I did too. I still enjoyed this theme park nonetheless and want to make another trip there!

And to my delight, my favourite disney character welcoming me: Tinkerbell.

Is this the castle from Alice in Wonderland?

We were trying so hard to take photos with all the disney princesses and the queues were simply too long.  This reason is enough to warrant another trip to Disneyland! Collect all photos with disney princesses.

The parade commentary was carried out in Cantonese and it amused me so much.

What is a trip to Hong Kong without dim sum. And so we queued up for hours on our empty stomachs for good dim sum.

The lovely friends who waited so long with me in order to satisfy the cravings of a foreigner.

Finally we got our table and food came, emptied into our stomachs in no time. We were so satisfied with the meal that my friend paid using her credit card and we left the restaurant without signing the receipt. Got a shock when the bank called. Luckily the restaurant contacted the bank who in turn contacted us. Three brains and none of us were in the right state of mind. (Coughs)

Another place that couldn’t be missed – authentic Mak’s Noodle. The bowl somehow looks small when it arrived in front of me, but I assure you this portion filled me to the brim!

I wanted to buy roast duck back to Singapore on the last night of my trip. But I ran out of cash and the restaurant doesn’t take credit card for orders below two roast duck. And so, I left empty handed.

We took a boat ride back to Tsim Sha Tsui! It is so refreshing to know boat rides can be part of one’s everyday transport.

A fruitless shopping trip on one of those days. A friend whom is now happily in love and I am so glad for her.

Christmas was around the corner when I visited and christmas lights were lit up everywhere.

Ending the post with the awesome girl who put me up at her house and spent so much time bringing me around, even cooking instant noodles for me in the middle of the night. I definitely miss the night before I flew off, when we dozed off on the sofa in front of the big ass television catching Super Show concert on DVD.
