Signature Crispy “Piggy” Bun & Fresh Tomato Noodle Soup at 勝香園 @ Sheung Wan, HK Island (香口脆脆和番茄汤面 @ 上環勝香園大排檔)

“All-time packed authentic road side stall which you shouldn’t miss, for their signature fragrant crisped bun and refreshing tomato noodle soup!”

Sang Kee Fresh Fish Soup Bee Hoon at Sheung Wan, Hong Kong Island (上環生記鮮魚汤米线)

“Eat what the locals eat.”

Right after checking in, we were eager to find some food to fill our famished stomachs. However, we did not hang around Tin Hau area for street food.

Without further delay, we set off quickly, by MTR. More

Yes, this place. An elegant afternoon tea rendezvous for the rich “tai tai” (wealthy Mrs.), often featured in the Hong Kong TVB shows. In Hong Kong, they called it, 嘆下午茶 (taan haa mm cha). Haha.. It made me curious to find out more. More

“Condoms” Restaurant in Bangkok: Cabbages & Condoms

“A good Thai restaurant that comes with condoms?!”

Just visited Bangkok (again), for a short 3 days 2 nights trip. Yes, due to time constrain, we had to pack all itineraries full in the 3 days. Shop, eat, eat, shop… :) I was sure Bangkok is no stranger to most Singaporean shoppers and foodies, you probably knew the city inside out. :) More

Tsui Wah Restaurant was the most famous local-style cafe in Hong Kong. A chain-stores of Hong Kong Cha Chan Ting (茶餐厅), Tsui Wah had many outlets located islandwide. For convenience, we only patronized the outlets at Wellington Street, Central, and Causeway Bay. More
