HONG KONG TRAVELOGUE 香港之旅

HONG KONG TRAVELOGUE 香港之旅

Finally I blog about my Hong Kong Travelogue 香港之旅. I will try my best to clear all of my pending travel posts such as Japan and Thailand travelogue. If you're following my Instagram or Facebook, then you should know this was my third visit to Hong Kong. Therefore, we (me and my family) are not going to visit those mainstream attractions. Instead, we had visited some of them and some of the local restaurant which nearby our hotel. This post is all about the things to do and what to eat during my 5D4N Hong Kong Trip. 

THINGS TO DO
Who say things to do must be an adventure? Why can't we free and easy? Since we are travelling in a group and family form, therefore, our things to do are quite flexible and free and easy.

  • STREET PHOTOGRAPHY
STREET PHOTOGRAPHY IN HONG KONG
It is works for any country! Whenever I'm travelling, for sure I will ask my sisters / mom to help me took some photos on the street. It is natural background and memorable. Especially when your background comes with signboards.

  • HARBOUR CITY

Harbour City is a large shopping mall in Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong. It is part of a series of office blocks and hotels. It comprises several parts: Marco Polo Hotels, Ocean Terminal, Ocean Centre, the Gateway and the Pacific Club Kowloon.

It is great place for photography. It is great to take photos with the city buildings as background. Covered my sister's face because she said she was too shy to show her face on my social media platform.

This is the place that I took photos of my new hair makeover as well. If you click the image above to enlarge, you can see how beautiful violet hair that I've got.

You got to visit convenient store at every country. All of them selling different variety of products due to country culture. I bought a box of mask and ice cream there. The little green man figure and phone case bought at other place (not at 7-eleven). Thus, the cashier gave us a lot of stickers. I got 20+ of them. Eventually we passed all the stickers to my old sister to redeem some toys for my niece.


WHAT TO EAT
Now, food to eat in Hong Kong. My father is not a fan of those popular restaurants because he don't want to queue for long time just for a meal. Therefore, here are some list of the cuisines that we had visited. Although some of them are famous as well.

CHEE KEI 池记 | LANGHAM PLACE


  • CHEE KEI 池记 | LANGHAM PLACE
This is one of the popular restaurant that you gonna try. The branch tat we had visited was in Langham Place.

Their signature wantan noodle is famous and delicious. We tried that last time and this round, we tried their set dinner.

It served with vegetables rice, fried pork chop, braised raddish, soya bean, and soup.

Surprisingly beside of their signature dish, the other food taste good as well.

CURRY FISHBALL



  • CURRY FISHBALL

Yum cha meaning "drink tea" in Cantonese. It is a time-honoured Hong Kong ritual. Yum cha also popular with their dim sum. What I have here is their cutest salted egg custard buns. Don't you think they are adorable? When you teared apart the bun, the salted egg puree will come out. You can visit their shop at Langham Place.

  • HUI LAU SHAN 许留山 
HUI LAU SHAN 许留山

I know they have franchise in Malaysia, but trust me, the dessert taste differently. We always visit Hui Lau Shan when close to midnight. We had ordered different types of Chinese dessert (tong shui) and all of them taste not bad. Worth to visit. You can find many branches in Hong Kong.

DIM SUM | SHEUNG WAN





  • DIM SUM | SHEUNG WAN
When mom visit her friends in Sheung Wan, they bring us to a random dim sum cuisine (called it as random simply because I had forgotten the restaurant name) Lol.

JASMINE GARDEN | LANGHAM PLACE

Since our visit to Hong Kong is close to Winter Solstice festival, therefore, we had a winter solstice set dinner 冬至晚餐 for four at the other night. The set dinner include assortments of barbecued specialties (2 choices), braised bird's nest with bamboo pith and crabmeat, sauteed scallops, sliced geoduck clams with vegetables, braised whole fish maw, abalone sauce, steamed sabah garoupa, and last but not least, sesame dumpling with ginger soup.
