Since we stayed so near IFC central, we decided to head to Tim Ho Wan at IFC mall. Passing  the very first Asia flagship Apple shop.

We didn’t get to eat at Tim Ho Wan in the end. The queue was so long!

We settled our breakfast at Coral De cafe. Not bad actually. Both Daddy and I like their lunch set as well.

As time was tight, both Daddy and I went on separate way. He wanted to shop for his stuffs while I went for last min shopping. Zann and I had our cart noodles at causeway bay.

Goodbye HongKong.  See you next time, maybe 2 years later ?

This trip supposed to be a recharge trip for me, but in the end I fell sick with Zann. The trip ended so fast, until I couldn’t recall where I went. Or maybe I didn’t have the mood to walk and take photos. Partly also due to my fever. Daddy missed his chance to go Lantau Island again. We skipped Disneyland cos we went there before.

I told Daddy, the next time we come here again, we would bring Ian along when he knows how to walk.

HongKong Day 3: Checking in Shenzhen

20140321_144946

Travelling to Shenzhen, and clearing customs almost took us 2hours plus. It was tiring. My flu and fever worsened when we reached Shenzhen. I was affected by the temperature at 17C there cos of my fever.

Shopping was cheap in Shenzhen. There are many children clothes selling  in wholesale. Bought quite a lot of clothings for the kids. Except for the toilets. Really cannot make it!  There’s no soap! I had to buy a Dettol hand soap there when I used the toilets. Terrible! Men and women spit on the floor like nobody business.

Saw this French fries machine, caught Zann and Hub’s attention. Zann said how she wish SG have such machine.

I no mood to use my camera. Every photo was taken by handphone.

We had ramen for dinner. Don’t know what to eat also. Hub wanted to try Korean cuisine but I had a painful sore throat.

We bought the first class types of seats when we went back HK. It was merely $10 difference and we get to sit comfortably on our way back.

Outside the station. Everyone was selling milk powder and diapers. Hub did a calculation, these items are of same price in SG, not much difference. But I guess the price make a big difference to the people who stay in Shenzhen.

HongKong Day 2

 

20140321_103039

We had our dim sum breakfast at Lin Heung, another of our favourite joint whenever we were in HK. The three of us had a fulfilling breakfast at the forever crowded and noisy place.

The first time I had their liu sar bao, which I prefer SG. The egg custard is a bit hard though.

Daddy, not having enough, went to join the queue. I have to stop him from taking some more, so worried we couldn’t finish. lol.

Zann’s appetite improved after the HK trip. I was so glad she was back to her norm self and started to eat a lot when we were in HK. Before coming, she was sick for almost 3 days,  losing her appetite in SG. Which was also the reason we decided to bring her along with us, hoping that the trip will help her.

Zann and her favourite must have lotus bun (lian rong bao) every time we came to HK.

We made our way to Tai Yuen Street, where the toy shops are situated. Most of the toys are from the 80s,  really nostalgic. Daddy and I bought quite a lot of toys back for Zann and Ian.

I was still having fever and a bad sore throat, so we went back to rest early. Seriously, I think I didn’t really shop much and take much photos during this trip, cos I was feeling terrible with fever. Sigh. On the way back, we bought the Kowloon milk for supper.

The steamed egg white from Yee Shun Dairy Co. Nice.

My sore throat worsened after I had this XO shrimp dry mee for supper.  :(

HongKong Day 1: Checking in

20140320_010838

It’s past midnight by the time, we checked in. Zann was resting in the sanctuary at T2.
We chose Scoot to go HK this time.  The original plan did not include Zann as this was a recharge trip for Daddy and myself. But we changed our mind and decided to bring the girl with us, knowing that she would be in great disappointment if we left her behind.

Checking in Just As Inn. Ironically, I am the one  who found this hostel but this wasn’t my choice of lodging. Daddy and I prefer Prat on Hollywood, but it was already fully booked.

First thing after checking in, was to settle breakfast. Zann’s favourite is her MCD macaroni chicken and ham set. We were all to tired to go elsewhere, plus I was having a high fever on that day. Actually I fell sick before this trip. My condition worsened when I reached HK. I was feeling so so terrible throughout this trip, and I miss Ian greatly.

The girl dozed off at the Starbucks, where we were resting in Mongkok.
