My first day spent in HK was awesome! The best out of the 5 days there! (: Had good food for lunch & dinner. Plus i got to do a lil shopping! What more can a girl ask for? ((: Heh ^^
Took a train to Kowloon instead of cabbing as it wld take longer & wld be far more expensive. If u are ever in HK, don't take a cab! Save your money & time. Taking the mtr(trains) is so much more convenient plus it gets u to ur destination way faster than a cab wld. HK is huge & the traffic can be rly bad. But w the MTR, u need nt encounter the traffic jams (:
Shopped @ the 'Flower Market', located @ Prince Edward Station. The clothes there are way nicer than the ones found at Argyle Centre or Ladies Market. In fact, don't waste ur time visiting Ladies Market. There is absolutely NOTHING to buy. At Argyle Centre, there are more shoe shops than clothes. Also, the clothes are a bit like Bugis & FEP combined tgth. However, clothes weren't as appealing as the ones @ Flower Market.
The clouds look so fluffy & White! ^^
Stayed @ BP International Hotel, located @ Kowloon, Jordan Rd.
View from the hotel room.
Lunch @ The King's Cuisine!
The dim sum served @ this restaurant are the best i've ever tasted! IT IS SO GOODDDD!
In most of the hotel restaurants, i realise they always wash their cutleries w a pot of hot water provided.
蝦餃燒賣 (Shrimp Dumpling)
BEST SHRIMP DUMPLING EVER!!!!! The skin is perfectly thin & the prawn is so fresh & huge!
Steamed dumpling "ChuiChow" Style
Dumpling with veg & nuts. It didn't really like it cause of the nuts.
烧卖 (Siew Mai)
Usually i'm nt a fan of Siew Mai.. But the ones i ate at this restaurant was SUPERB!
Congee seafood w scallop.
It was so-so only.
If u're wondering why my eye colour like so diff.. I'm wearing contact lens from FreshLook. Got it in 'Honey' colour.
Off to the Flower market, @ Prince Edward station!
Come out from Exit B2 & walk straight.
U will see a traffic light & cross over to the other side & walk straight until u see a fish shop, turn right & walk straight! U will eventually find the Flower Market once u turn right.
SO FRIGGIN CUTE RIGHT??!
Turn right when u see this!
Flower Market! (:
