Hong Kong Day 04 Part 01

Lin Xiang Teahouse (Lin Heung Tea House)

Ling Heung Tea House in Wellington Street, an 80 year old establishment that is still packed day to night. Even recommended by TIME in its 10 things to do in HK in 24 hours article. This place is famous for making its customers share tables because it is so difficult to get a seat!

you know it's so difficult to get a seat and even the dim sum too!!!
Everyone rushes to the auntie trolley when she comes out from the kitchen with her trolley filled to the top with hot piping baskets of dim sum. So WJ makes a dash for it cos both daddy and mummy are really hungry by now after waiting so long to get a seat.

And mind you, the seats which we got was actually the waiter saw us pathetically trying so hard to get a seat but always losing out to the locals!!! hahaha...actually thinking back it's really quite comical..to think that singaporeans are kiasu, but i think the locals here are even more kiasu!!!
Anyway, at that time, i even wanted to give up and told mum that we'll go to another place for dim sum...but mum wouldn't give up, saying that since we are all here...we should try.

Anyway back to dim sum snatching...after queuing so long, OMG this little basket of golden buns, upon opening its skin, AIYOH, how come the filling is so puny!!! EVEN wj goes big-eyed!

mummy is really happy with her dim sum here....

and we pose for a together photo here....

some photos of wj hustling and bustling through the crowd...thankfully the auntie trolley notices that he has been waiting really long and serve him first even though other customers were pushing their order chits to the auntie FORCEFULLY...

YAY! and we have our dim sums.

after dim sum , the best way to lose those calories is to go SHOPPING!!!

and mummy is losing any moment at all, immediately outside the restaurant there were stalls selling shoes!
