Vibrant & Lively City of Hong Kong
Thanks to those who dropped by, and dropping brickbatz while I was away to Hong Kong/Macau for a well-deserved break. The monotony of work has gotten the better of me. HK & Macau were HOT !!! Literally. The weather was scorching on most days, with slight rain on only 2 occasions. And we naively thought autumn breeze would welcomed us ...

MTR Stations

MACAU - Noodles for all occasions (Cheong Kei) and McCafe/McD's Pancakes


MACAU - Famous Pork Chop Bun, Crab Porridge (Seng Cheong) & Tau Fu Fah


MACAU - Margaret's Portuguese Egg Tarts, Lemon Cello Gelato, Yishun's Steamed Milk (with/without red beans) and Serradura & Durian Ice Cream (Gelatina Mok Yi Kei)


HONG KONG - Delicious Chinese dishes


HONG KONG - Authentic Dim Sum for the masses


HONG KONG - The epitome of street food, Stinky Tofu & friends ...


HONG KONG - Typical Breakfast Menu

HONG KONG - Sweet temptations to tease your tastebuds ...

For the time being, I can only post so much .... Savour the delightful gastronomic fare from HK/Macau for many more days to come. =P

Of course, I'll post on the attractions, the accomodation, the places of interests, the shopping fiesta, and most importantly, MY experience throughout the 9 days, 8 nights getaway. Stay tuned !!! ;)

Christy said...

Wow, you're really into blogging yeah...hehe, and too excited to share your story with us:) (you were so fast in updating! I remembered I took some time to organize and upload my photos in my travel blog
http://angeltraveblogue.blogspot.com)

I'm sure you've had a great time there and that's a whole lot of great food, I'm definitely gonna stay tune for your updates!~:D

CK Lam said...

Nice to have you back...I love the tau fu fah with red bean so much!!!

Btw...really hope to see you in our gathering this Saturday.

mycroft said...

i wan to go to hk n macau too! food looks really great!

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

so nice ar..just started working not long ago, and a long makan trip!

JENCOOKS said...

Welcome back, that was a long 9days in HKG/Macau which normally people take about 5days. We didnt miss your blogs tho as they kept coming.

It's a bad time to be there when it's hot cos it so much nicer if it's cool.

Foodwise, that's a nice assortment of pics which is so nice; dont know which to point out but they all looked so good, I wanna go back there....

wmw said...

Wahhhhh.....you really ate!

J2Kfm said...

min : aiya, gonna be your THIRD time liao, no need reference anymore, rite? :)

lyrical lemongrass : haha, go on! fly away! though it's highly recommended to go at end of yr, when it's cooler.

christy : yup, I started work yday, but arranged the photos almost all day. hehe .. :)

ck lam : the red bean is served on top of steamed milk (siong pei nai), not taufufa. but very rich milky flavour. slurp ...

mycroft : yup, the choices are unlimited, I dare say. I would've pigged out 6 meals a day had it not been slightly pricier than Msia's.

joe : yeah ... sometimes a makan trip's all we need to counter the monotonous pace of working life ...

jencooks : thanks for dropping by often. =) agreed that it's cool if the weather's erm... cooler.

wmw : but still not enough la. there are countless stuff I missed. next trip I'll prepare a longer n concise list. hehe

Nic (KHKL) said...

Shell (貝殼) said...

I miss Hong Kong egg tart & dim sum, don't know when can i go again^^

kampungboycitygal said...

whoa whoa whoa im drooling all over..miss those notorious street food the most!

Precious Pea said...

Even when i went in October, it was still hot. Luckily you were not caught in the typhoon (you didn't, did you?).

Precious Pea said...

By the way, the crab porridge was from the same restaurant i went in Macau right?

KCA said...

wow.. the desserts look so.. so.. so.. TEMPTING!!! hehe.. satisfying~~~ y din ta pao some?? =P

J2Kfm said...

nic : yeahloh, given the chance, I'd go a second, or third time. or maybe more. :)

shell : now that HK's so accessible, consider going again soon?

kampungboycitygal : street food's aplenty, but sometimes we can't stomach much as almost every meal's a chore to finish.

precious pea : then go in Nov/Dec best? no typhoon, no worries. only slight rain on 2 mornings. and yes, that shop is Seng Cheong, the one on Ruo De Cunha.

kca : aiya, so far, how to tapau ah? haha ... how bout something from sabah eh?

Ipoh got a lot Ramadan bazaar, in fact. but the one with most stalls and food is the one at Stadium Ipoh, I think. hehe, I love buka puasa fare, but too lazy to go and buy them myself. hehe ...

Read the whole 9 days of your journey. I was lucky to see your post before heading over to HK-MACAU in November. really informative on the food and place to go.

I so can relate to your taste as I too come fro Ipoh.Definately will try out the food that you have recommended as I will b stayin at the same place as you.

Thanks alot buddy for the great 9 days of your post on HK-MACAU trip.

CurvyBabe said...

Yea and I saw that you have skipped Disneyland in your itenary. Any reason why? And you did not visit Citygate mall.

J2Kfm said...

curvybabe : have a blast over there! almost same time as mine, your trip?
hope it doesnt rain much there.
Citygate is just next to the station in Lantau Island.
and we skipped Disneyland as there was not enough time, cannot fit in everything. so we had to choose between disneyland or ocean's park

CurvyBabe said...

ooh icic..well i'll be going this November which is a more cooling season compared to now..

just found out that "fu shan" has actually renovated..gosh now it looks so grand...thanks a lot for the info..keep up the good work on ur blog..
