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).
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?)
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.
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.
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!)
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!
