Hong Kong Day 5: More Shopping & Yummy Food


Hong Kong fun trip: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4.

This is our last full day in Hong Kong. So what better ways to enjoy our LAST day than shopping!!!

We visited Tanka Sport Outlet at Kaiser Estate Phase II, Hung Hom. This outlet sells low-priced clothes and merchandise from Adidas and some other brands like Timberland and Reebok. Unfortunately we’re not allowed to try on the clothes. I bought a 3/4 inch trousers for RM40 (normal price ~RM150).

Adidas Factory Outlet

Our lunch. Ohhh the prawns in the wan tan are so succulent. I wouldn’t say the same for the mee because the mee tasted like it has not been wash properly! Yucky! (you know mee stench?)

Wan Tan Mee Soup

After that we went on a search for Dickinson Factory Outlet near Jordan MTR but alas it was the wrong place. Did some boring window-shopping near Jordan MTR and off we go to Mongkok for Ladies’ Market and Fa Yuen Street shopping extravaganza. Ladies’ Market is pretty boring. The stuff on bargain is almost same as Temple Street. YAWN.

Hong Kong Ladies' Market

We were going after Fa Yuen Street ladies’ garment road but we can only find rows of sneakers shop. Before long we found another ESPRIT Outlet (at Hollywood Plaza). What else? We pay ESPRIT another visit. Other store like Bossini is there as well but we have our eyes fix on ESPRIT only.

Esprit Outlet Mongkok

At night we had an ‘early dessert’ at Yee Shun Milk Company which is just a stone throw away from our lodge. Their specialty: steamed milk in two films, steamed milk with ginger and steamed egg.

Left: Lotus seed on steamed milk (hot); Right: Steamed milk in two films (hot).
Verdict: Deliciously wonderful. You can choose either cold or hot. Hot is better.

Then off we go again to Temple Street (our lodge is only 2 mins away), to the same restaurant for chicken and mushroom claypot rice. Aughhh! The 2nd time is always not the same. Too bad. Then we visited Hui Lau Shan again before going back to Yee Shun Milk Company to tapau some milk dessert and also to another shop to tapau ‘chi ma wu’ (black sesame soup) and ‘hung tau sui’ (red bean soup).

Left: Chi ma wu (ohgod so yum-yum!); Right: hung tau sui (nice too!)

chi ma wu and hung tau sui

Guess what happened few hours later in our hotel room? All of us farted repeatedly. The odor? Smelly egg!!!

I love Hong Kong streets at night. Those beautiful neon lights make the street so Hong Kong! What am I talking about? It is Hong Kong after all!

Tsk, btw those red signature Hong Kong cabs that you see… they’re Toyota Corolla cars. Very spacious inside. One more thing, HK cabbies won’t refuse you no matter where you’re going and they always use meter.

Another thing, in Malaysia although we use SmartTag we have to slow down right? but fuiohh in Hong Kong they have autotoll lane whereby you can drive pass without slowing down… swift like a wind fuiohh!

Hong Kong tourism slogan: Live it. Love it!

Oh yes I couldn’t agree more. I love Hong Kong. I felt so at home in Hong Kong. It didn’t feel like I was travelling to another country. Perhaps because we share the same culture (modern Chinese people way of life) and speak the same language: Cantonese. Beijing felt like another country.

Coming soon – Macau!

    geee!! u made me miss HK! i been there before in year 2004 dec.. so long didnt go there already! i used to stay at Mongkok and the Ladies’ Market was just underneath my hotel, so we went there everyday! so many things to buy! i wanna go again!!!

  • Reply Angie Tan November 29, 2007 at 3:43 pm

    Wahhh…

    HK food is nice!! Even their most common wan tan shop is better than the best one here in KL (I haven’t found a great wan tan mee shop yet). 😉

    Anyway, I had one bad experience with the cabby because we took a short ride in the cab from one place to another during peak hour. We got scolded because we refused to walk. We couldn’t help it because my friend’s parents could not walk. :doh:

    I’d guess, thanks for Astro’s Wah Lah Toi, we are very familiar with HK culture. So, it may not seem like a very alien place for us.

    After I read your post, I think Hong Kong is a good place for shopping and eating! I am not too much into shopping, but I like to eat! Would like to be in Hong Kong in the future.

    Hi!! Loved your posts on your visit to HK.. erm.. how do I go to Kaiser Estate from Hung Hom KCR station? Is it worth going there?

  • Reply Che-Cheh March 27, 2008 at 1:32 pm

    Ch, Hi! Glad you enjoyed reading my HK posts. We took taxi from one of the MTR. For me, I wouldn’t go there again. Because 1. we cannot try the clothes at Tanka Sport Outlet (if your objective is going to Tanka Sport Outlet) 2. Only Tanka Sport Outlet is worth visiting. There are 3 other Tanka Sport Outlet across HK if you find going to Kaiser Estate a bit troublesome.

  • Reply ch March 27, 2008 at 7:57 pm

    yah right.. if to troublesome, might as well find other Tanka outlets. Anyway, thanks for the tips! :kowtow:

    Ch, you’re welcome.

  • Reply meiyi February 5, 2009 at 8:46 pm

    hey again, for a budget traveller, how much HKD do i need per day for food + light shopping?

  • Reply Che-Cheh February 6, 2009 at 7:22 am

    Meiyi, I guess HKD300 will be enough. Of course every individual is different. 🙂

  • Reply meiyi February 6, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    thanks.. 🙂
    actually i’m budgeting HKD200.. i’ll see if it works, else i’d go to the money changer for more.

  • Reply Che-Cheh February 6, 2009 at 5:43 pm

    Meiyi, oh no no… don’t change later. Please budget more. There’s no such thing as light shopping. 😀 It’s not worth it to change your money in HK. It’s less. So you rugi a bit. But of course these are just what I encountered. Maybe you will find a good money changer.

    […] So we went to our favorite eatery which is Wai Kee Restaurant for the claypot rice. Read my review at Messy Witchen. Since this was our last night in Hong Kong, we tapau-ed some of the desserts we enjoyed so much during our first visit here. […]
