Day 7: Getting Fat

Today I woke up late. 12pm … Hong Kong time.

My mum bought egg tarts because she knows it was on my list of to-eats. Although by the time I got to eating it, I only ate one, it was cold. Yet the crust was still flaky and crispy. That’s when you know it’s a good egg tart. Yum! We’ve tried making these at home and even buying it at the States, but they can’t make it like they do here in Hong Kong!

By that time, Alva woke up so he got ready and went with Mum and I to the travel agency. Did I mention I’m going to Taiwan? Yep. In a few days I’ll be going to Taiwan to visit another family member … for a few days. Then back to Hong Kong I go. Excited!

So in the picture above, you see us riding the Public Light Bus. Alva tried to take a picture of the cops here because instead of the States cops that ride in motorcycles or cars, these ones walk around everywhere. Needless to say, he failed and missed all 4 of the cops that walked by.

Afterward, we went to the Jockey Club to buy more lottery tickets for PoPo. Then we headed to Dim Sum. Apparently it’s way cheaper after 2pm. It was Alva and I’s breakfast/lunch while it was Mum and PoPo’s lunch. Crazy.

We always order too much dang food. But it’s so good. My favorite is all on the bottom row. The first one has soup in the dumpling. Mmm. The second one is hot peppers filled with fish cake and pan fried. The last one is made out of radishes. YUM!

We were so fulfilled with our meal. PoPo went on her own way while Mum went on hers. Alva and I went back to the flat. We watched the telly. The Hong Kong’s The Voice was on so we watched people sing while we rated them. Laughed and joked a lot. Then he had to leave for dinner with his friends.

Shortly after, Mum came home with cakes! We had a coupon to redeem some cakes and so she did so. Mmm. I picked the round one on the top right hand corner and the purple cup thing. I didn’t eat them all in a sitting but boy were they delicious.

PoPo cooked dinner but because I was so full from earlier’s Dim Sum, I only ate the vegetable on the left.

This day wasn’t as eventful. But it was fun nonetheless. It might seem the same everyday but there’s always something that makes being here so much better. Today was spending time with Alva and getting one on one time with him.

Day 6: Pizza Hut … in Hong Kong?

Breakfast bright and early at Everybody Lok with Kathy and Mum. I got Congee with Preserved Eggs and Pork with a side of Chinese Spam and noodles. Drink: Yin Yuan.

Then Mum and I went back home to go with PoPo to the Post Office. We rode in the Public Light Bus (Green).

I finally got my stamps so I can mail postcards to peoples! Open-mouthed smile

Then PoPo went to do her own thing while Mum and I ran some errands.

Mum and I stopped by before riding the Subway to get Gai Daan Jai (a pancake type batter in shape of little balls! An Egg Waffle if you will). Soooooo good. So crispy!

Mum and I then went to Pizza Hut. It tastes better than the States!

Lemon Ice Tea, Some type of Cream soup, garlic bread, shrimp salad, and a small Pan Supreme Pizza. So much food. I was stuffed.

Seriously. If you ever get a chance to eat Pizza Hut in Hong Kong, do it. You will never see Pizza Hut in the States the same again.

We bought some Pork Jerky to share with . It’s so good over here. Definitely better than the packaged ones in the States.

Bought a new watch! I had to since we were always without time and always wondered how long we did something.

For The Kids … ALWAYS! Smile

PoPo made dinner again! So filling. I love my veggies … and my chicken!! Open-mouthed smile

Alva went and got Tong Sui (a dessert with many choices) for us. I got the Warm Sesame Tong Sui. So good. I love when I cross something off my list.

P.S. I just saw a commercial for Gossip Girls … and it’s in Chinese. Just picture it. It’s funny. I couldn’t help but laugh nonstop.
