{Travel Tuesday} Hong Kong in 2 days: First night.

As the saying goes, "When in Rome, do as the Romans do". So when Hubby whisked us off to HK for a 2-day trip for my birthday weekend, we did what was expected - finding and trying the famous food there.

If you want to find out how to clear your Hong Kong bucket list of gastronomic must-haves when you've only got 2 days, then this is the post for you =)

We arrived on Friday evening because I had to settle the kids and Adam's homework/ spelling/ worksheets before flying.

On the first night, we checked in to our hotel and basically did nothing much but just venture nearby for a quick bite before heading back to sleep.

We stayed at the W Hotel as Hubby is a SPG (not Sarong Party Girl pleaseee :P )
In terms of location, it is not as convenient as Langham Place though, (now renamed to Cordis) which is directly above Mong Kok MTR with many street stalls and malls nearby.

If you're looking for a reasonably priced family-friendly hotel, Cordis would be a better and cheaper bet.

Age is not how old you are, but how many years of fun you've had. I'm officially 33!

Thank you Hubby for the arrangement with W staff for the surprise :)

After settling down, we went to nearby Jordon to have supper at Tsui Wah.

It was 2AM and many shops were still open, mostly eateries.

This noodle set with soft pork cartilage and dumplings is good.
The food portions in HK are huge so it's good to order 1 set to share, and move on to the next stalls.
This way, you will save stomach space for all your desired eats!

All the years of coming to Hong Kong has not changed my opinion of her - I am still in love with HK's seedy streets in all her neon glory and tall, cramped buildings.
They bring such a rustic charm to this city that never sleeps.

Temple Street is full of street hawkers peddling their palatable culinary products so that's why it is always wise to order 1 portion of many different things to share!

2+AM, the best time to have bowls of hot 糖水 Tong sui (dessert) in the cold 14 degrees weather.

After this, we headed back to sleep before we start our next 2 full days of mouthwatering adventure, which is up in the next post  on Day 1 and also for Day 2. =)

P.S. Thank you Hubby for loving me. I look forward to spending every subsequent year with you till we both grow old and wrinkled and lose our minds and then we will be new lovers again :P


  1. Wah!! I am not really a foodie but I am most impressed by the romantic gestures of you and hubby as a couple. LOVE the birthday balloons, cake and pressies. NICE way to celebrate a birthday!!

  2. Your hubby treated you so well for your birthday: stay in W hotel and eat all day!!!
    Fun should be your middle name ;)

  3. Thanks Ladies! I'm missing the cold weather and food already >_<
