Around Hong Kong

Since I have already blogged about the places I visited in Hong Kong, it’s time for me to do my blog finale. The shots below are taken around Hong Kong starting on our arrival up until our departure. Last hurrah before I finally close the chapter of this bitter-sweet journey.

Our very first meal after we land in HK. Saw this Chinese Restaurant close to our hotel so we decided to eat there. All restaurants in HK has an abundant serving and I keep on telling my boyfriend about it the whole time and his answer never change, “of course, because it’s expensive”. Yes, its expensive if we convert it to Philippine money.

After our visit in Victoria Harbour, we dropped by Harbour City Mall. I think my neck was on 360 degree rotation because everywhere I look there are high end brands I see that I don’t see in the Philippines.

We found this noodle place n HK selling delicious noodles and there was never a day that we don’t go there to eat noodles. My favorite is the Beef Brisket noodle.

We also went for authentic Chinese food hunt and visited Dimsum Square as recommended by our friend.

After our short photoshoot in Kowlook Park, we went to Hello Kitty Chinese Cuisine Restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. This is the only time we splurge on food. I am the type of person who is not picky with food when in another country because I know the ordinary foods we eat there are already priced like the food we eat in restaurants here.

We didn’t order a lot and we were careful about the foods they put on the table because even the wet tissue has a charge, how much more the appetizers. We’ve learned this lesson when we were in Singapore last year. However, we did not resist their Hello Kitty chamomile tea. Brewed tastes really good!

My dessert arrived first. I forgot the exact name but it is a berry mix gelatin panna cotta with fresh fruits and milk.

Hello Kitty paintings hang on the wall.

After our dinner at Hello Kitty restaurant we walked to have our food digested until we reached Night Market and decided to buy souvenirs since we are leaving the following day. We decided to buy keychains and nails cutters as souvenirs but look what else I found! Kawaii mirrors and I can’t help not to buy all designs so I bought one for each design.

Fast forward the following day, we missed our flight, spent the entire day in the airport to rebook our flight, hotel and get more cash. We chose to stay in Tsim Sha Tsui still because we are already familiar with the place. As soon as we arrived in Tsim Sha Tsui, we dined at Yoshinoya which I’ve noticed a block away from our new hotel. I’ve tried Yoshinoya in SM Seaside and I so love their food. It was then that I found out that it a fast food chain that started in HK and China.

We killed time by strolling the streets of TSim Sha Tsui.

Woke up the following day 4 hours before our flight, arrived in the airport 2 hours before our flight and thank god this is my view on board.

 

Thank you for reading my blog! My Hong Kong escapade has finally ended.
