what I done in Tsim Tsa Tsui

this is about Harbour City Shopping Complex in Tsim Tsa Tsui
there are some must-try-thingies over there !!


M-a-c-a-r-o-o-n-s



I'm kinda a fans of it !!
barely find any in Penang... tho heard KL does have, but I never tried before...

I had it once in 2009, bought at HK Time Square...
and I missed it !!
this trip... stewpig got a half dozen for me !! which costs him HKD 120 !!!

Jean Paul Hevin, name came after a French manufacturer of high-end chocolate.
everything selling at the stall is so costly !
the little packing of ONE piece nuts chocolate costs HKD 40 or more



after I got stewpig to have a little bite on it, he asked " do u think we shall buy another six home? "
the creme melted in his mouth, melted his heart at the same time !
he started to love it too !!!



I love it's Macaroons so so much !! it's nicer than the one I had in Aussie !! the price tells all !

***************
next...
it's a high-tea place nearby one of the side-entrance of Harbour City...
I forgot the name...
but it's an open place serving high-tea, and great pastries...
we walked up to check out the price...
so embarrassed that,
the waitress told us the cakes are only for dine-in...
to take away,
pls check out the shop next door...
the moment I walked in,
I adore all the cakes and patries there...

the price tells the qualities...
I couldn't afford to spend HKD 520 for a Blueberry cheese cake...
thus, stewpig bought me the little slice instead...
in fact, he finished almost the whole piece in no time...
he could die for it !
*thumbs -up
if not mistaken..
the mini Raspberry tart is about HKD 9 each..
and it WORTH !!
the custard straight away melted the moment entering my mouth !
above were happened on the 5th day morning..
whereas below were about the 3rd nite~
we were starving and rushing...
in order to save up the times for looking up good restaurant..
we decided to settle our dinner at the foodcourt...
and
we reckon we have made a very right decision...
(:
I seriously miss the korean cuisine !!!
I had Kimchi spicy Pork with glass noodles and rice..
while ko ko had the Kimchi Pot Noodle...
both were delicious !!!
around HKD 40 - 50 each...
portion is huge !
stewpig, who never fancy of korean foods...
told me he missed it too !!
super big portion of Yong Zhao Fried Rice with Shrimps and bacon..
***************
walked around the jetty after dinner~
je fu fav herbal drinks~

we smell it from far away...
kept guessing where the smell came from... till we saw this stall...
no doubt, the taste of the Cuttlefish is as nice as the smell !
great !
Cayden is so farney...
right after I took above pic...
he ran over stood at where I was, tried to post like me and got us to take a photo of him !
we were so surprised and can't stop laughing !
after dat, he said he wanted to take 'pic' of his fav mummy...
after he 'thought' he has done, he 'asked' the metal guy to show him...
and of course, the statue won't give him a damn...
he kept pulling his ear, and scolded him naughty...
told us he is so bad, cuz doesn't wanna show him his mummy's pic !

he ran back to kick him somemore when we trying to walk away...



he is just so cute...
kiddo is so innocent~ :)





***************
half an hr before 7th Nov,
we planned to get some beers and cup noodles at the 7 eleven opposite our hotel (Metropark Mongkok) with pyjamas !! wahahaha
Cayden cheers me with my fav Asahi when the clock ding at 12:00~
it's Kimmiez buRfday~ ^^

宏發烧爉 (Hong Fatt ) at 通菜街 Tong Choy Street


*************
this Pearl Milk Tea stall is just at the exit/ entrance of Wong Kok Zhong Sam ( Mongkok Centre)
something that I need to emphasize here is...
je je, who never fancy of milk-tea-type-of-beverages...
nagging want to have this everyday !
she likes it since she tried one in Oct' 09...
of course, she doesn't take the pearl drinks, but she is so much into the Red Bean Paste Green Milk Tea...
which I had before during my last trip in Sept' 09...
something special with Happy Lemon is the varieties of drinks available...
besides the normal pearl, the offer SMALL pearl... (smaller size of pearl which I never seen in other places ) , several types of jelly, Han Tian (Japan famous diet food) , and bean paste...
I will always go for my fav Honey Lemon with han tian jelly...
while je je grabbed her Red Bean Paste Green Milk Tea and ko ko had the Big Pearl + Small Pearl Coffee Blended...
ko ko said : CHU~~~ (pig)
cuz his drinks has SO Much of pearlsSss~~
*********
I saw this every where during my last trip in last Sept...
but I didn't get to try it !!
till this round !!
and now I understand why everyone shopping in Mongkok must grab a packet !!!
even the crowd is so packed and pek chek !!

it's type of japanese noodles....
small portion inside small packet...
varieties of noodles such as: green noodles, yellow noodles, vermicelli noodles, instant noodles and etc...
1stly, you will choose the noodles
followed by the ingredients u want to add on...
as much as u want... no limit !
after they mixed the ingredients u chosen with the noodles, they will mixed around with some special sauce, garlic, chilli (optional) and etc...
ours, Green Noodles, with Seaweed, baby hotdog and I forgot what else...
most people like to mix with baby octopus, and I guess it tasted fab too..
but I stopped je je to add it as I don't eat ! :P
** the noodles and ingredients are cold, in a fridge !!

mad love it...
I miss it so much !!!!!
to be cont'
