Hong Kong Trip Day 4

Day 4 was pretty short. We were to leave Hong Kong for airport at about 1pm.

As it was a Sunday, we got up at about 8 plus as there should not be any shops opening so early. We went to the small eatery just outside the hotel. This shop sells really nice Chee Cheong Fan. The shop is really small with just 2 sets of kiddy furniture. Many ordered take away instead. Some just stood outside the shop enjoying their Chee Cheong Fan.

I like the Chee Cheong Fan for their thick sweet sauce and lots and lots of sesame. 🙂

After breakfast, we walked to Tsim Sha Tsui. It was actually a stop away from Jordan but usually we would take the train. That day we decided to take a leisure stroll there to collect the goose that we had ordered the day before. Before collecting the goose, we had some time and decided to shop at Harbour City again. Most of the shops are not opened yet. Basically, we were just window shopping.

At one of the entrance to Harbour City, I saw these cute little bottle shape sculptures. Intially thought was barrier just like on our roads. On second look, there were a few people surrounding the cute bottle shape sculpture. Only then that I know that those were for smokers to throw their ash and cigarettes. Who says a cigarette dustbin got to be in the shape or look of a dustbin. 🙂

We went to the directory to see what other shops we could venture and was really excited to Gong Cha. Been wanting to get Gong Cha for the whole trip. Gong Cha is something like KOI in Singapore. We walked from one end of Harbour City to the other end only to find out that it opened at 11am. In the end, we just took some pictures of the harbour.

Eager to collect our goose, we walked back to Taiwan Beef Noodles. Along the way, we spotted a very unique shop with unusual stuff. Secretly took a few pictures of it. 🙂

Not sure if Singapore has them but they are definitely not cheap. 🙂

With that, we ended our 4 days 3 nights tour in Hong Kong. It was fun once in awhile without the kids. However, we do miss them and promised to bring them for our next Hong Kong trip. The next time, it will be their trip. 🙂

Oh just a word of caution. For those who wants to tabao back goose, we were in the airport only to find out that we can’t bring poultry into Singapore. To our horror that a big bottle of gravy was packed together with our handcarry goose. In the end, we discarded the gravy and put the goose in Jonathan’s bag. I think the restaurant that we bought from did not do a good job on the packing. 😦 The best is still to pack them in your check in baggages. Nevertheless, my in laws and family enjoyed the goose. *I hope* 🙂

Upon reaching Singapore Changi Airport at the immigration , I spotted the Youth Olympic mascots. Took a picture with them only to see that they looked so sad in the pictures. Well, probably was because YOG was already over and they were left there.

The moment we reached home, went to pick up the kids. So happy to see them but also the start of our nightmares. LOL
