DAY 01- Hong Kong

Yes! and we are on our way to our Pre-Hunny Moon destination - HONG KONG.

Although we have been to HK many times now, but it was always touch and go type. SO this time, we are staying 5 full days to cover all grounds, eat lots of dim-sum, wanton noodles, roasted meat and tremendous amount of push-cart rubbish!

some snippets for memories.

and here we are!香港仔魚蛋粉

here's what we ate and a quick and easy menu (in chinese and english) to order.
After dinner, some light shopping at muji before heading for some HK bubble milk tea which i miss so much!!! Sweet-talk is so different from the ones in HK. Think i'm biased. But i still like HK ones better.
a really happy 'foxy' wj. Did i mention that he's a little sleepy too???

lastly, to end the night, more supper! - smelly tofu, squids and milk tea!
