HK Day 5 (6/11) - Shopping day~

Saturday, January 05, 2008 Posted by YY on 7:51 PM

After the long day yesterday, today is dedicated to shopping..what's HK w/o shopping?

Breakfast is simple today: Milk tea with pineapple bun with butter (菠萝油>>like melon pan with butter slice inside)and cheong fun.

Taipo Train Station..this transport service is called KCR, different co. from the MTR.

Went to Shanghai street with high hopes of finding some cheap baking stuffs, but was disappointed =( Nonetheless, we walked and walked to look for lunch..turned into a corner and saw this cafe with tv, showing "Kindred Spirit"..O wow..old show~ We decided to rest our feet and order lunch. K ordered 牛杂面, and I ordered maggie mee + porkchop+ hotdog with egg in satay sauce.

Close up on the Beef Noodles, it tastes fantastic~ gd!

Lemon coke, look at the slices of lemon inside.

Satay sauce was not the same kind here in Singapore, its not peanutty..and tastes dam gd with instant noodles. If you think thats all..look at the next pic..*big portion*

2 sausages, 1 egg(3/4 cooked..slurp!), 1 pork chop(cooked to perfection), veggies + instant noodles. Ok i admit..i was slurping the noodles down and realised..SHIT..haben take pic zzz~ So i covered everything back and took the above, then the half eaten noodles below..=D

And the final bill = HKD47 => Less than S$10 for 2 persons.

Went to Tsim Sha Tsui -> Granville street and bought loads of stuff. But the one with all the goodies is K, he bought more than me =X ..How come ar???

Got so tired, i got kindda emo..and so Kristian *my other emo half* was out till..I had a dose of dessert @ 许留山。 My all time favourite is this 雪蛤膏, duno what issit called in English..BUT 许留山 is famous for Mango desserts, so K ordered this Mango dessert with coconut puree..


Mango ice cream, with mango pulp and coconut flesh..makes a wonderful dessert~

Was still feeling quite emo..until we ventured into the mall and saw 大快活 having steamboat sets for dinner and they opened till this late, with special offers after 9pm.Not much difference between sale/no sale price roughly HKD48 => Less than S$10

Background: Theres's the shopping bags and bought this figurine for K's fren..this KOF char called Mai, expensive girl which costs near S$100! O_O

The steamboat comes with soup (refillable ) we had chicken soup. This is the beef set, now let's focus on the ingredients.

Beef, veggies, fish cake, beancurd, tau kee, tau pok, chor bee hoon, mushroom, yellow pepper.

And it comes with a few sauces, up to u to decide how you want to mix this whole thingy to your own preference. Tell you, this is the first time I am eating steamboat in aircon restaurant area setting, and no shoving and pushing to fight for food.

Decided to make a bowl of chor been hoon, with beef and veggie..a pic of my own concoction

Opposite the bus stop was this HUGE LV shop, with some HUGE u call this billboard?

Awesome~ feels like a huge LV box.
