Pearl of the Orient - Hong Kong | Chapter 6 (The End)

30 January 2013, Wednesday

It's the 6th and last day in Hong Kong, discovery of the Pearl of the Orient will be ended by today. 

Look back to the past 5 days, we do have a great journey to see the different faces of Hong Kong. 

Check it out here : - 

As we have already completed our main mission, 

Mission 1 : Ride on the Duk Ling -- the 1980s classic fisherman's boat (Completed!)
Mission 2 : Visit Jia Jia and An An -- the giant panda (Completed !)
Mission 3 : Taste the wonderful Hong Kong's food ! 
(well, this will be continuous as there are too many good food here !)

we shall continue looks for the delicious Hong Kong's food then!

Did some research back in Kuala Lumpur earlier, a theme restaurant that we would like to visit. 
So, we headed there for breakfast. 

Here! Guess the theme!

I guess you have figure out what's the theme. 

Yup ! Batman's in the town ! 

Herocross Cafe
Shop 38, G/F, Chung King Mansion, 36-44 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. 
尖沙咀彌敦道36-44號重慶大廈活方地庫38號鋪

Assorted flavour of chocolates and cakes with Batman's theme is selling here. 

This cafe serves western food and beverage. 

Well, this meal is not related to Hong Kong's local food, hence, we were here for Batman. *smile*


Annexed to shop, Batman related display and merchandise are available here too.

After breakfast.

Look at the research done earlier, we headed for the famous Wan Tan Mee.

When we reached the destination, couldn't find any sign of the shop.
It seems like the shop has moved to else where.

Disappointed.

Then, we saw this cute little Mobile Softee, an ice cream van!
Somehow, it brighten my day again although we did not try any of the ice cream.

Continue searching for the shop location through internet, then we realize that the shop located pretty far from where we are right now.

Well, we still have plenty of time to go around Hong Kong.

So...

Here we go~

We even asked a policeman for the shop location.

Finally ~ here we are !
"Lao Sam Kei Noodle House" (Mission 3 on going #18)

This shop had visited and recommended by the World Famous Hong Kong God of Cookery, Chua Lam. 

A tiny kitchen that cook yummy noodle.

They provide pickled radish too. *yummy*

The famous Wan Tan Mee top with dried prawns.
虾子云吞面

We added a stewed pork knuckle too. *yummy*yummy*

Some interesting conversation happened during our meal.

Remember there is a bottle of pickled radish on the table, it was facing me and our table was sharing with two middle age ladies.

Lady 1 : (talking to Lady 2) Where is the pickled radish?
(Before Lady 2 answer. I handed the bottle) I said : you want this ?
Lady 1 : Thank you.
Lady 1 : (Talk to Lady 2) So nice of them, it's hard to have such a polite youngster nowadays.
Lady 2 : (Agree) many of them are selfish.
(Me and Jack smile at them, well, we are friendly, haha)

Is that means that Hong Kong youngsters are no manners? Well, it's very subjective.

~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~.~

After a satisfactory meal.

We headed to one of the tourist spot - 1881 Heritage.

A "Bear Theme" heritage.
The two giant bears. 
And some little bears. 
1881 Heritage was the headquarters of the Hong Kong Marine Police.
It has now transform into a heritage hotel.

This historical building is a famous place for pre-wedding photo shooting.
I can easily see 4 or 5 couples during our visit.

It was a chill evening, resting ourself at the hotel cafeteria.

Enjoy a cup of coffee and freshly baked scone.

This is life.

*Love . Peace*

*Yummy*Yummy*
(Why those selling in Malaysia is not as tasty as this!?)

At Hong Kong International Airport, night flight.

Goodbye Hong Kong.

In Love with Hokkaido の The Fantasy Town - OTARU (小樽)

After impressed by the breathtaking view of flowers sea, in my heart was thinking, I had done the most important visit in Hokkaido, therefore, I did not expect any other thing to impress me further. But, I was wrong, the places that we are going today has given me surprises, one by one.
Yesterday was too tired of running after the sea of flowers, I was consider fainted in the hotel room at night. Haha.. Luckily, this morning when I wake up, I felt refreshed!
As we are in the city today, I decided to dress up colorfully, you will see in the photos later, haha, guess I will not wear the same combination back at my home country. :-P
Breakfast! This hotel does not has a large hall for dining, guests have to line up to wait for empty table. This was my first experience that have to line up for hotel breakfast! Yet, the food that served were just so so.

This morning, we are early to get on the bus as we do not want to rush like yesterday and make everybody waited for us.
The bus start movi…

~ HOME ~

Was here last weekend with a bunch of crazy friends, it is located a Banda Hilir, Melaka, just about 10 minutes walking distance to Dataran Pahlawan. 

As there is no "TURN IN HERE" signage at the junction, we had missed the junction and had to make a big round to come back here coz its a one way street. For the 2nd time, contacted the friend who been here before, after passing Hotel Equatorial, must slow down and look for the building of "Huang Association", right after the building, there is this small road turning in to the left (the road is VERY small, its just a lorong actually, ngam ngam for 1 car to pass only). 
Finally, we had reached the destination. Was welcomed by a great smile by Ms. Rebecca aka Becky, there were a couple sitting at the living hall, Becky introduced them to us too! She then guide us to to our chalet -- Ixora.…
