Hong Kong, Hong Kong! -- part 1

Nope, of course it wasn't me who went. Hmph! *Sulking*

15 June 06

For this trip, mommy decided to stay in HK Island side rather than Kowloon. They chose Metropark Hotel which was rather near to the Tin Hau MTR station. The humans booked a Standard Harbourview Room. When mommy requested for a non-smoking room, the recept came back with a pleasant surprise!! That they would be upgraded to an Executive Room. Daddy was further away and didn't hear what was said to mommy, but mommy said "Yes! Ok." immediately ... this was the very first time she ever got upgraded for anything so of course she jumped at this opportunity lah!

As the room wasn't ready, they were given free drinks at the bar. Wow! Not bad at all! The chips were also topped up when the first serving was finished. The reception was manned by a rather young group of staff, all able to speak quite up-to-standard english. Bellboys also very courteous! *thumbs up!*

Now, a tour of the room:

Then, time for dinner!

Went to 永华 Wing Wah Noodles at 89 Hennessy Road, Wanchai, to have noodles. Chose Dumplings Noodle, bad choice! A dry one somemore piang! HK$38:

Go for soup one at all costs! Dry one is only slapped with oyster sauce.

Mommy's die-die must have:

It's called 薑汁撞奶 (HK$20). A kind of milk pudding with ginger juice, where hot milk is poured into ginger juice and voila! it becomes pudding like. You can choose the original flavour, 雙皮燉奶 (HK$18.50)if you dislike ginger. Daddy prefers the original while mommy only has eyes for the one with ginger juice!

They had the above desserts at this Yee Shun Milk Co.:

Address: 85 Percival Street, Causeway Bay.
Causeway Bay MTR, exit B, then turn right & go up the overhead bridge to go over the street opposite, which is Percival Street. It is on the right side of the road.
They have other outlets as well (in Kowloon too) but sorry, mommy didn't copy them down.
