    Welcoming The Tiger with Love. 

    Happy Chinese New Year!

    The atmosphere in Hong Kong at this time of year is awesome. Everyone out to prepare the best family dinners, buying flowers for house decorations, preparing the ‘Lai See’ (red pockets), buying lollies and pumpkin seeds for the lolly box…ahhh so warm. We went to the Lunar New Year Fair at Victoria Park Causeway Bay. It was packed to max…. like as in everyone behind you shoving you forward, like on the MTR at peak hour in the morning… just see what I mean:

    Took the fun out of it because you couldn’t really see anything if you were in the middle and awkward to stop and stare at something because it feels like you’re holding up all the traffic behind you – hundreds and hundreds of eager people. But still, I got to eat my favourite TONG CHUNG BENG (糖蔥餅) !!! Its like one of the most traditional cantonese snacks and hardly ever come across it anymore. Its crispy cane sugar with sprinkles of coconut wrapped in a soft pancake. Usually, there’s an old man pushing an old cart around selling these in limited quantities. You’re lucky to find it around these days.

    Guilty Pleasures – Day 3 in HK 

    Dreams come true in Hong Kong.

    “Cheung Fun” (Rolled rice noodles) at Sham Shui Po street food stall

    Walked to so many shops to find it and was getting frustrated cos it was so hard to find this colour… but ended up getting it from good old trusty Broadway. Here it is, the PANASONIC GF1!

    Have you tried a sushi roll that’s 8 inches long?? – I have.
    Kam Tin Long Sushi, Austin Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. AMAZING!

    Had to blog this even though I’m only going to get 3 or 4 hours sleep – got a flight to catch bright and early! Bangkok here we come!! SAWADEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

    I Heart Hong Kong! – Day 1 

    Its already been 2 years since I’ve been back to Hong Kong. I’ve missed it so much! First thing we got once we stepped off the plane was a fresh mango drink from Hui Lau San. Then off to my favourite shopping destination: Causeway Bay! I felt like such a tourist: ooh-ing, ahh-ing and wow-ing and wanting to buy nearly everything I saw. Must……re..sist…… my moolas gotta last me for a month!! Also got a trip to Bangkok coming up in a few days too. More pictures coming!
    This is such an awesome start to 2010!!

    I was being lazy which was why pics didn’t work. Here they are:
