    H&M which offers “fashion and quality at the best price” is all over Eastern Europe but if that is something beyond reach, you can always find a H&M store in Hong Kong.

    Next stop was Harbour City & H&M at Canton Road. We took the MRT from Central station to Tsim Sha Tsui Station. From there, take Exit A1 and you will pass by  Jamia masjid Islamic before reaching Harbour City. Situated in the hub of Tsim Sha Tsui, Harbour City, with over 700 shops, offers a wide variety of fashion and trendy brands. Apart from that, flagship stores of different international famous brands (H&M!) are concentrated around Canton Road, across Harbour City.

    How could one miss  Honeymoon Dessert when in Hong Kong? There is a small kiosk of Honeymoon Dessert at the 3rd floor of Harbour City.

    Originated from Sai Kong, Honeymoon has grew into a franchise business with branches all over Hong Kong and China. For some weird reason, we ordered the Banana Pancake and Taufufa with Red Bean Soup instead of their signature Mango Pomelo and Durian Pancake.

    The Taufufa with Red Bean Soup was nothing to shout about but the Banana Pancake was the boom! With ripe bananas, light cream and wafer thin skin, each bite was pure bliss!

    One can enjoy A Symphony of Lights along the Avenue of Stars every night at 8pm. This spectacular multimedia show, named the world’s largest permanent light and sound show by Guinness World Records, combines lights and narration while featuring more than 40 buildings on both sides of Victoria Harbour. The facades of buildings are decked out in lights that, at the flick of a switch, glow in a myriad of colours depicting Hong Kong’s dynamic pulse. The show lasted for about 10 minutes and it was spectacular!

    Dinner was at Yung Kee, the famous roasted goose place at Wellington Street, Central. Spanning over two/three shoplots, the whole Yung Kee empire looks terribly grand and intimidating. Yes, we gulped looking at the menu, as everything is exorbitantly priced.

    Our starter was the famed century egg with woobly yolk.  Together with pickled ginger, it was a delightful treat that make us forget about the hefty price tag for a while.
    HK MACAU 2009 805

    Our quarter portion that costs HKD 160. We were totally unprepared for the let down, as the place was being so posh and all. The skin was soft and soggy while there’s no complaints on the soft and tender meat. Is it because we walked in with high hopes of finding great food?

    Total bill? HKD 260++ with rice and tea. Oooouch!
