Hong Kong 2014 - Tim Hou Wan

Tim Hou Wan is the cheapest Michelin Star Restaurant in the world,  it was a must go when you are in Hong Kong.  Do a search for the outlet nearby the place you stay as they have a quite a few outlet.  The nearest outlet that is near to the apartment we stayed is Tim Ho Wan Mongkok which is situated in Olympian Mall.

We ordered their famous Baked Bun with BBQ pork,  I love it a lot.  The out side is crunchy but the inside is soft and fluffy.  The Char Siew taste is well balance of sweetness, saltiness and smokeyness.  Just wish the bun will be bigger.

Another must order is their Fried Turnip Cake.  The turnip cakes contain to much of turnips that when you try to pick up the piece it fall apart.  No complain on that, just have to becareful when you pick up with your chopstick.

Next is the Tonic Medlar & Petal Cake (Kwai Fah Gou),  this is another dish that I love. Is a jelly like cake. It is very springy and refreshing with kwai fah fragrance.

The Har Kou skin is springy and the prawn in it is very fresh. NYUM! The chicken in the Lo Mai Kai is in big chucks and also the mushroom.  The Lotus leaf fragrant has penetrate into the rice. NYUM!

Total damage for 5 ppl not that expensive.  Worth the money!

Hong Kong 2014 - Day 1

I went to Hong Kong in April with my friend and cousins.  It was free and easy trip.  It is my longest oversea trip.  I was in HK for 7 days and 3 days in Macau.

We stayed at Pok Man Street around Mongkok.  Before we fly off to HK we went to a travel agency at 1U to purchase our ticket to Disney, Victoria Peak and Ocean Park.  We got a very good deal on the entrance fee.  If you guys are planning to go HK you may check the Travel Agency @ 1 U where the Skybus station is.  The staff there is very helpful.  He has help us a lot despite we went in to buy the tour very last minute. He ask us to purchase the Octopus Card for tourist where there is express train from airport and 3 days unlimited usage.  You can choose either 1 way from airport or 2 way to and from airport.  If i do not remember wrongly 1 way from airport + 3 days unlimited ride is about HKD220 and 2 way + 3 days umlimited ride is about HKD300.  Although it say 3 days, we are able to stretch it up to 4 days. In the Octopus card there is a voucher for us to purchase mobile card.  The sim card is for 8days access to 5gb data + HKD35 airtime to call out + unlimited wifi connection. When ever you see the sign PCCW Wifi, login to the wifi service to access the net if the 5gb is not enough for u to use.  With the voucher we paid HKD98 for it.

The apartment that we stayed in is very strategy and value for money.  Although from outside it looks a bit run down but the apartment was ok.

Let's Pray for MH17

The news of MH17 from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur was another shocking news to me.  It was such a bad year for Malaysian Aviation.

Let's us pray for safety for all the passenger on board.

"Dear god,  please be with all that is on board."
