DAY 03- Hong Kong

day 3 in a glance
1030am: wakie wakie. Change and time to find food!

11am: Shopping! on the way to this restaurant called: 一點心. Recommended for its reasonable pricing and fast delivery.

3pm: Causeway Bay. Lunch at Modern Toilet. This thematic restaurant setting is of toilet fixtures and accessories! Good for photo-taking but not so good food.

4pm: SOGO, must go to their event hall to check their weekly sales. Best way to do it is the queue for their elevator. Then take the escalator down. Visit Jardines Bazaar. World Trade Centre which has loads of shops like zara, uniqlo, mango etc etc. Island Beverly which has many local designer shops, lots of nice accessories and dresses, nice place for the ladies. LaForet is very much like Far East, small shops concept, targeted for the pubescent teens.

8pm: Dinner at Yau Gwat Hei Hotpot Specialty Restaurant 有骨氣 where the locals have their steamboats. Famous for their slice black pig and cuttlefish paste which you have to squeeze it yourself. Which is all the fun about. really.

First stop: TO fill our stomachs first!!! Or rather that was what i had initially had in mind till i was waylaid by some stores along the street which were tucked along the way to the restaurant!!!
But we finally made our way there after some shopping bags. hehee. And there was already a queue forming outside the doors.

Here's the addy!

we ordered: century egg porridge, siew mai, beancurd skin, chicken paws!! (muahaha), vegetables, charsiew changfen & lastly meatballs
Total cost: $91

And it's more shopping on the way back to the hotel to dump my shopping bags. Bought a hello kitty tissue cover for my car/new home maybe. Curtain holder, hello kitty too...although hmm, haven't really thot where i could put them! Next i saw some strawberries on the way back and i couldnt resist it too, and bought 2 punnets of them. And i bought even more stuff further down the road. Another dress ($69), totally to 4 now and it's only the 3rd day!!! a pair of shoes ($59), pink ear-phones($69) which totally rock (star prints!!), more hairbands for my head.

my collection of pretty hairbands!

Next we took the MTR down to Causeway Bay to eat lunch! or Tunch since it was already 3pm. And when we reached the restaurant there were a Singaporean family there too! Eating like us at a funny timing!
Modern Toilet
4th Floor, Capital centre 5-19, Jardines Bazaar, Causeway Bay (MRT Exit F, located above Watson's)

And here's a pile of poop to greet us at the door's entrance! There's a fly on the poop too...

Here comes our food!!! we ordered Taro Balls (came in a squatting pan!)comes with complimentary milk tea (in a urinal) and a bath-tub of LoMien (YUK!!!) + Poo dessert

Total: $89

We sat on toilet bowls, and the table was supported with basins! There was the toilet signs on doors too, and behind me where i was sitting was filled with rainshower heads!!! SO COOL!!!

after the horrible meal at Modern Toilet. (only the poo soft ice cream was okay) the rest was yukky. We went to SOGO's 9th flr = event hall and i bought myself yet another pair of shoes. This time from Timberland $290HKD and a bag from KATE Spade (YAY!!) at 30% off.

Did more shopping at World Trade Centre where WJ bought some of his UNIQLO shirts, and we caught a bit of Cheung Chi lam's open air concert. And we popped by Agnes B cafe too...*drools*
Bought 2 more dresses from Island Beverly, gosh they have so many things there and not much money!!! Went to LaForet and it had so many shops too...just like Far East Plaza.

Dinner was at 有骨氣 and i saw a HK MOVIE STAR!!!

We ordered Tau Kee+Steamboat veggie (Tong Ou) + Golden Mushrooms, +Sliced Black Pig + Hand Squeezed cuttlefish paste. It's worth every penny cos i saw a star!!! WEE! anyway their service is really good, when there's scum in the steamboat soup, a waiter will come and scoop it off. And they cleared our plates, make sure that we are comfortable and all.

last but not least, my buys for today.
