HK Holiday! (Part 2)

继续享受!购物前,先解渴!There's no queue for HK 贡茶, unlike Singapore! Phew...

Tsim Sha Tsui is a good place for shopping! Other than Granville Road, we went to DNA - a shopping mall that has lotsa quirky stuff (as u can tell from e decor), but i din buy anything there...

Such a huge backpack! Scary!

For shopping, I'll recommend 利时大厦, near DNA, which is very much like Far East @ Orchard with lotsa lil shops, and u can get nice, affordable, trendy clothes, accessories and shoes...bought quite a lot of stuff there! But if u r looking for really affordable stuff, I'd say Argyle Centre in Mongkok is a good choice...(though I din go there this time round...hehe...)

And when you are along Granville Road @ Tsim Sha Tsui, be sure to try the famous 丰记正宗蛋仔饼!This particular store has been patronised by several celebs, including Sammi Cheng! And we were attracted by the aroma even when we were stores away! And indeed, it tastes really crispy and nice! The 蛋仔饼 in other stores seem tasteless and definitely, not aromatic...Thus this is highly recommended! And J and I missed it even days after...yummy!

Dinner at Knutsfurd Terrace! An alternative to Lam Kwai Fong if u r looking for pubs to chill out, and esp. nice restaurants! Had wanted to dine at Munch (highly raved according to some online sites), but the restaurant was fully booked! Must reserve a table the next time I visit HK! *determined*

Ended up at Paparazzi, an Italian restaurant, instead cos we were too tired from all the walking...ambience is pretty nice! but food-wise...i'd say it's just so-so... =P

After dinner, it's chill-out time! =) Visited a pub along the street that has TVs airing HK drama...I like tt! I feel like a Hongkie! Haha! And of cos, free strong wifi finally! Kept whatsapping and vibering my frens in Singapore! =P

In HK, it's really abt shopping and eating and drinking! Dessert at 许留山 b4 heading back to the hotel!

Going back to the hotel after a long day! I'm worn out!

While walking back, I bumped into my Khalil方大同in the MTR station...

My Khalil is holding his <15> concert from 25-27 August!! Shd I go back to HK for him?! *seriously deliberating*

HK Holiday!! (Part 1)

This has be my most last-min trip so far. I always plan my vacations mths in advance, but this time round, the air tix and accomodation were booked only one week earlier. My travelling companion, J, was damn spontaneous despite the late notice! And thanks to the friends who gave me recommendations on where to go and what to eat cos I was ultra bz the whole wk b4 i flew!

This is the hotel in Causeway Bay that one of my frens recommended. Only 5 mins walk from Times Square!

The beginning of a relaxing holiday!

Steamboat dinner at 稻香!稻香and利苑are two popular F & B groups in HK, similar to Crystal Jade and Imperial Treasure??

The 猪骨汤 tastes great! 清甜!But when we requested to add more soup, the waitress auntie came with a kettle and poured something in...but the "liquid" was colourless...HUH??!! And then we realised it was merely hot water, not 猪骨汤!! The soup base was diluted!! Why wasn't 猪骨汤 added in?! *disappointed* I dun wan diluted soup base leh!

Off to shopping and eating the next day with J! =P From HK Island (Causeway Bay) to Kowloon Island (Tsim Sha Tsui)!

Nice Dim Sum at Serenade 映月楼 @ HK Cultural Centre!!

The food looks tantalising! Must take pix!

Ordered this special dessert that looks like 三层肉!Of cos it tastes nth like the fatty oily soft 三层肉 lah, it's actually 姜汁桂花糕!It looks very nice, but it's rather Q and tastes of ginger, which I dun love... =P

A must-go place to c c look look! G.O.D.! Goods of Desire - a lifestyle brand founded in HK! Love the unique items there! 富有香港特色!

Tempted to get these!

And I love the chairs! Rather expensive though...and my room is already swamped with too much things to make space for another chair... =P

But I still like them! =)

To be continued...

I Am Back!

Yes, it's been a while since I last blogged...

Hmmm...let's juz put it this way...

My life for the past 1.5yr has been a lil different...kinda can be made into a movie or mini-drama (or at least in my opinion)...yes, it's that dramatic. To the extent that I couldn't even believe it myself. But then things just happened and I've learnt to embrace and go with the flow. It's kinda similar to when u r in rocky waters - the more u try to resist the strong waves, the more drained u become... On the contrary, the more relaxed and open-minded u r, the more energy u'll conserve; and when the waves bring u to places tt u've nv been to, u'll then actually have e energy to observe, appreciate and react.

"It's better to know and be disappointed than to never know and always wonder."

I have no more regrets in my life (at least I can proudly say tt thus far). And I'm actually pretty cool abt it. A big THANK-YOU to all my frens who have been with me all this while. U know who u r, so i'm not gonna name names. =P Thanks for being there for me when I needed you e most...Pai say abt the countless msgs, calls, etc ah, hehe...Thanks for hanging out with me at those places when I needed to whine...And thanks for having me over at your places...These are frens whom I'll gladly 两肋插刀 for...

I've always been a lil weird. Or to put it in a more PC way, "every individual is unique". Hence, of cos I do have my lil idioscyncracies and I'm always a weird mix of rationality and sentimentality. It's really not easy to define who or what I am (though sometimes I do believe that my frens would have a clearer idea on tt) =P, but I aso do believe that that is exactly what makes me special, and I shd be proud of tt. (If u r a lil "weird" by ur definition, u ought to be proud of tt too!) 人时时刻刻都在变, u'll never truely know who u r, cos u r constantly changing...there is no
标准答案, hence is e ans really tt impt? What I feel is that as long as u generally know what is impt to u, and tt u r steering in a positive direction, 那就够了。

And it's impt to have一颗善良的心。

I'm glad that the ppl ard me r mostly nice and kind ppl, and one thing for sure, no matter which stage of life I am in, I AIM TO GET RID OF ALL E 脏东西 IN MY LIFE. By 脏东西, I refer to the negative energy and ppl, etc. My motto in life: Know what is good and what is bad for you. Keep the good and definitely get rid of the bad! Go away, 脏东西!! YUCKS!!

"Life is never meaningless, because for everything you do, there'll be a goal, an effect, a consequence. These endings help us to understand things at the end."

I'm really happy that I've made quite a number of good frens along the way. 患难与共。多谢,朋友。=)
