HK Day 4 (5th Nov) - VERY LONG day

Thursday, December 27, 2007 Posted by YY on 8:09 PM

Woke up bright and early *see time on menu shown below* its only 9am+ and I am downstairs ordering breakfast liao..

Look closely at this menu, look at the pricing..
Choose anyone of those below:
Part A -
1. Fish porridge
2. Pig blood porridge (those coagulated pig blood cubes that Singapore used to have)
3. Century egg with lean pork porridge
4. Beef with century egg porridge
5. Tang zai chok(urgh i duno the english name lah..Tang pronounced a CK Tang)

Part B -
1. You Tiao
2. Pineapple Bun (Bo Luo Bao)
3. Chicken Thigh Bun
4. Plain Zhu Chang Fen (with some sauces, but no ingredients inside)
5. You Tiao wrapped in Zhu Chang Fen (炸两)
6. Beehoon with Bean sprouts
7. Stir fry Noodles with Soya Sauce

Take one item from A and B each for only HKD18 = SGD3.40 (S$1 = HKD5.3) !! That's freaking cheap compared to Singapore..what's more we are dining in aircon area, just like a cafe..
Forget about those rip offs in Singapore..those silly 茶餐厅 that charges $7++ for a bowl of instant noodles and worse thing doesn't even taste authentic!

Since we didn't know the proportions, we ordered one set of century egg with lean pork porridge with stir fry noodles with soya sauce. The portion given was amazing..two of us finished with bloated bellies..YET we saw..some other hk pple eating one whole set ALONE..and flushed the meal down with soya bean drink..o wow?

Another part of the menu for breakfast only:
I lazy to translate le la..ask me if u want to know..

After this satisfying meal, we took a LONG ride to the other end of HK to get to Tung Chung Station (near DisneyLand). Took a bus to Lantau Island..and AGAIN I am at the Big Buddha..after the long bus ride..over the mountains *haven under the sea*

As mentioned K is 1st timer at HK, so thus the touristy stuff after visiting Big Buddha, we sat down for some vegetarian stuff. However, its much more commercialised as there used to be soya bean curd made with these spring it doesn't taste as good as 10yrs ago >_>'

HKD50 for the fare below..its not say very cheap la..but it tastes not bad. There's the red stuff which is sweet and sour gluten stuff, mango mochi, glutinous dumpling, fried yam dumpling, tou hua.

Asked for directions around Big Buddha and finally found the bus stop to wait for bus to Tai O island. *ok i m an direction idiot..i went Tai O just 3 yrs ago..and i totally forgot how to go*

Tai O scenery once this point it gotten real hot..and I am bushed from the bus rides.

Spotted two FUNNY cats there..there was a few passer bys taking their photos on and off..and they were oblivious..staying in the same position o.0?

He seems to having the face >=p..but he stood this way for real long under the afternoon sun..weird~

Great nap in the shade...

View of the street, market place.

When we walked in...totally different world? All the shops are closed OR if not they are playing 2pm+ Monday many of us can do this? This is an idyllic island..with idyllic cats, islanders -_-'

Walked around the desserted place..filled with shuffling of mahjong tiles..and saw this..TOTALLY OUT OF DA WORLD..i duno what is it doing there..and it doesnt signify anything either..

And u know what..the bus back to Tung Chung MTR station left and will only come in about half hours' time..shiet! And I started going crazy...playing with the phone booth~

I directed this scene..the thoughts in the male lead's brain is supposed to be.."你为什么不听我的电话。。。 为什么? 为什么!!" *Why dun u pick up my calls...WHY WHY???* Then proceeds to slam the phone and bang the "walls"...drama rama~

I gotten so tired waiting for the damn bus..i cldn't be bothered when K took this picture. One picture says a THOUSAND WORDS..T_T

Finally arrived at Tung Chung Station..since we are there, we decided to visit the famed outlet stores..ah **** ..~ so expensive..what kind of outlet man..zzzzzzz~

We went into MacDonald's and ordered 1 set of McWings, 1 Fillet O Fish, 1 small size Strawberry milk shake

=> Total bill = About S$4 ONLY!! Fast food in SG is overpriced as well.

After the satisfying snack, we went to Causeway Bay. Walked around the mall..only to discover, K only loves the supermarket.. >_>

Pic below: Finger is as reference for size of these KING PRAWNS. If u remember my post abt Prime Society's king prawns <- this is in small letters cos the prawns were really SMALL. Japanese supermarket @ causeway bay sells the prawns at HKD98 for 2 prawns...not cheap la i kow..but Prime Society charged S$18= HKD90 for 2 small prawns...ahh u all judge for urself la eh..~

Saw this BBQ sausages..with bones attached to them..wonder how they did it..and what bones are those..Hmmm~though we supposed its for convenience sake??

This is called 巨峰 grapes, from Japan. Tastes like red wine, sweet..yummy juicy grapes tt costs HKD50 per pack 0_0 Look at finger for reference on size per grape.

After a short stopover at Causeway Bay and having some fantastic beef fillet samples @ the supermarket, we rushed over to Yung Kee Restaurant, famous for its goose stuff cos my Aunt made a reservation there @ 7pm -____-

Outside view..look @ the spotlights on the ducks...

The famous century eggs which I dun eat..K said its FANTASTIC..out of da world..and then..

I gave it a try..and become like this (see below):

Roasted Goose ~

Some spicy salty fried..duno wat? Till this day, i still duno what is this..

Went to take a look at Lan Kwai Fong, this is the most significant pic. Fullstop.

I think Boat Quay wins HANDS DOWN! No need to incl. MS at all..

Left for home, but halfway decided to drop at Tsim Sha Tsui to look at night scenery..can't believe I am still energetic at 10+pm after the long day right? I took naps in the horrendous bus rides la..

Skyline @ night...

Junk Boat tt passed by..

So much for night scenery, its incomplete without a we took a walk along the 'Avenue of Stars'..Cool wind was great.

K bought a can of beer from Causeway Bay, so I told him to drink it and I became the director again. This scene, the male lead drinks under the lonely stars alone..* NG several times before this..3rd shot successful! * I feel so drama rama again.. zzz~

After finishing the beer, time to head home, then it was already 11.30pm when we left to take bus back. Omg~
