HK-Vacay 07: As a non-Foodie, I actually Really Enjoy the Hotel Breakfast

food was tough initially

quite an issue as my

nephew refused to enter

the typical local eatery

“char chan teng” for HK cuisine

average spending is like

50 – 100 HKD per pax

fried rice, with dishesporridge with salted egg and crabwantan soup, and assorted fishballplain white rich with chicken, i have to emphasize on plain whitedishes: fried choy sum, fried mini fish, marinated ribporridge with fishpolo bun with butter

 

twice

i had to accompany him for a

take-away or dine-in at Mcdonald’s

roar!!! Mcdonald's all the way

and came back to realize that

my sis ordered a curry rice for me

of all things, curry rice at HK

chicken curry rice

 

a quiet dinner back in the hotel room

is always welcomed anywhere in the world

nissin yat ding noodle and misc

 

anyway the hotel breakfast at

Ibis North Point is not too bad

in spite of the lack of varieties

but i am absolutely find with it

HKD 80 per pax

ours came free with the hotel room

not to mention

you can take your own sweet time for

a quiet, slow breakfast with ample space

if you know how busy and squeezy

it can get in a small eatery outside

and more importantly

the little brat enjoyed it here, indeed

HK-Vacay 06: HK Disneyland, Revisited

as this was my third time in

a Disneyland theme park

and my second at HK Disneyland

 

i wasn’t really excited, initially

besides the 3 newly-added zones

HK Disneyland Resort - Grizzly Gulch

HK Disneyland Resort - Toystory LandHK Disneyland Mystic Manor at Mystic Point

 

almost everything remained the same

as it was almost 6 years ago

Spring, 2016

shame on me,

from a compact camera,

to a deluxe compact,

to a semi pro, my skills are like

as i really enjoyed the parade six years back

i insisted that we waited for it

yet it was a night parade at 7:30 PM

that meant a longer wait

under a pretty cold weather

although the duration was much shorter

it was worth the wait, after all

all the night photos was captured on my iPhone

as my semi pro has failed me

wait a minute, instead

i have failed my semi pro

 

till then

i am not sure i will be back

for the third time since

i would like to explore the other

Disneylands around the globe too

not forgetting Shanghai Disneyland, real soon

HK-Vacay 05: Due to the Weather, Stranded at Citygate Outlets 東薈城名店倉

i swear it wasn’t intentional

taking the train all the way to Tung Chung

our initial plan was to head to Lantau to see

Tian Tan Big Buddha and Po Lin Monastery

 

then, here again

well well well i can explain

Ngong Ping cable car was closed for maintenanceIMG_3956

 

and the weather looked gloomy

about to rain anytime soon

and upon a negotiation with my tour members

we wouldn’t want to take the risk

if the journey via road was winding

if it was really cold up there or even raining

 

so we ended up in the outlet mall instead

well well well

Levi's Outlet Store, Citygate Outlets, HK

 

i did not know how i found this

but the fact is i did find one

a down jacket with slanted zipped

by adidas Originals which is known as

Peddle Bike

adidas Originals Peddle Bike down jacket

 

awwh

adidas Originals L.A. Trainer 84 kids hoodies

too bad it wasn’t my size

someone else got better luck this time round

adidas Originals L.A. Trainer 84 kids hoodies

 

loot(s) of the day

50% off at 550 HKD

an additional 10% off for 3 and above items

i was already wearing it on the way back

since my mom borrowed mine

 

and these days is so difficult to

find such a simple piece

the three stripes are not really visible

so is the tiny trefoil logo printed at the pocket

yet it is not as boring as any other down jacket

given the slanted zip and some other details

adidas Originals Peddle Bike down jacket

 

by the way, at K-SWISS

K-Swiss Outlet, Citygate Outlets, HK

 

found the plain white i have been looking for

but 699 HKD is slightly exceeding my budget

so nevermind, next time then

and that two simplest pairs are the

most expensive of them all

K-Swiss all white sneakers

 

these day

simplicity is a real treasure

by the way the supermarket, Taste is

really not bad, if you would like some candies and snacks

Taste Supermarket, HK

international or local, alike

Taste Supermarket, HK

 

food for thought

it could be quite tiring if

your shopping partners are aged

10 and/or below

Gimme a Break kind of face

 

yumsss….
