My mum has been raving about this place,
she loves her waffles
so we ordered to share:
French Onion Soup
Butter and Jam
Verdict: 1/2 of us will return.
French Onion Soup: it was tasteless. I don’t think i really need to elaborate on it further.
waffles: considering this is the second time that my mum has returned, she mentioned how the first time around the waffles were much better -> in terms of the level of fluffiness and crisp. This time around both waffles were just too airy and not very crispy.
Damage: $15 per pax

My second visit here with the same trooper, following our so-so dinner. We visited this place before, and the waitress led us back to exactly the same place sitting at the same seats!!!!
So we decided to order something different from our past visit..
Trooper yuns was attracted by the appearance of this when she walked on and ordered
Ispahan: Macaroon with raspberry and lychee marshmallow
I ordered for myself just something simple
And a mocha
The ambience of this place is quite nice and chillax.. Especially on a rainy day! Just relax and chill – although I wished the tables were a little higher so its easier to eat.
Verdict: 2/2 of us will return.
It’s a very nice place for dessert and catchup.. And the mocha was pretty decent.
Troopie yun’s cake was exactly what she expected – but better 🙂 the raspberry balanced out the sweetness of the macaroon and the lychee flavoring very well, making it not too sweet overall in slicing through the sweetness.
My apple crumble was just simple – nice and more crumbly = yummy! Apples themselves were not drowning in thick syrup – so was pretty good I would say 🙂
And to end off
Happy birthday my dear trooper! Thank God we are still friends:) May we continue being friends for life 🙂

The common practice here it seems, is when a person leaves the company for good, they will treat everyone to an egg tarts or cakes. This gesture is just to show their appreciation towards their co-workers, as the term ‘shan shui bing’ is being used to express such a feeling.
That aside, I am an Egg Tart lover. I love the hong kong style of thick pastry egg tarts more than anything else, and i am glad to have found my love of my life at : Tai Cheong Bakery ( pleasantly surprised by my troopie)
Dont you think egg tarts look like sunflowers? So happy and welcoming? The best comfort food one could ever lay their hands on 🙂

So brother decided to give me a mine ‘farewell’ lunch before hopping on the next flight back to Singapore for good …
so we decided to indulge ourselves in …
a nice meal before take off ..
we ordered to share an executive lunch and some dim sum – ok while writing this post, it feels as if the 2 of us ordered everything off the menu .. almost everything
Sauces and tea settings
Xiao Long Bao
Crispy Toufu with Scallops
Special har gao
Baked Barbecued Pork Bums with Pine nuts
Steamed Squid and Zucchini Dumplings and Shrimps with lilybuds
Steamed Squid and Zucchini Dumplings
Baked whole abalone puff with diced chicken puff
Braised Star Farupa with Eggplant in Spicy Plum Sauce
Japanese Noodles with Minced Pork and Spring Onions in Soup
Overall, I only liked the soup, the abalone tart.. I didn’t think very well of the dim sum .. . I don’t think I will return back .. Only maybe for the abalone puff, soup the squid dumplings (something different from the usual).. the view was just fantastically amazing .. redeemed the dinning experience …
Man .. a sad meal before heading home for good .. nonetheless, it has been a good learning experience. 🙂

as part of my farewell dinner from my newly found hong kong friends,
I was brought to this dessert place that has so much mango delights!
I loved it!!
I wished I went there earlier 😦

and of course, we all shared :

Wished I ate at this place earlier!!
If I returned to Hong Kong, would definitely come back here to eat! for a dessert fix! 🙂

So I got to know a new friend and .. its been really fun getting to know her! shes been very kind in including me in all her outings and to explore new places to eat and try!!!
An alternative to brunch …
So we decided to have a mini -tai tai- moment and went ahead for high tea! (partly also because we couldn’t get reservations elsewhere in other hotels) and since both of us had to be heading off after high tea for other plans ( yes in continuation of spooky week, my friend decided we should go to check out Ocean Park’s Halloween night – which I hear is 10 times adult scarier than disney’s *gulps)
I think high tea is always enjoyable especially between the ‘hectic-ness’ of life , the company as well tops it all 🙂 .. I loved the ambience and can finally learn to understand why most of the hong kongers that I have met and encountered always seem to insist on the importance of view .. It does brighten up the atmosphere and subconsciously make people chillax .. well to me at least.. we were alternating between sweet and salty tiers of food to try .. We were also served complimentary desserts as well! so can you imagine how filling that high tea was!!! I loved the scones, the jelly shots the most .. the rest was also not too bad ..
I would definitely come back to see what other seasonal specials they have in accompaniment to their high tea menu 🙂

My mum, who is in Singapore, had heard of this place and told me to go and check out if I am free in Hong Kong.,. so since mummy said to try it, why not?
Being the usual noob that is bad in directions, I circled the place twice before chancing upon this faithful little shop 🙂
The shop is so quaintly decorated .. and it has a ‘afternoon tea tai tai hang out feel’ to it .. So i walked in and decided to buy some dessert to top off my dinner.
Dark Chocolate Tart
I also got another opportunity to try their famous Zoe cake!
I meant it kept winking at me “GET ME GET ME!!!” so .. ok 🙂 its very light, has a hazelnut touch to it 🙂 pretty nice if you are looking for a light dessert to sum up your week

I was just on my way home, stopping by 7-11 and chanced upon this :

Until my stomach decided its not cute anymore ..
Happily swimming in my tummy .. and ..
its a good snack to cheer up lonely days ;p
As I decided to go around exploring in Sogo, chanced upon this and decided to give it a try! ..
I am not a big fan of puddings, but, this one is plain AWESOME!
its so nice chilled and very jelly-ish milky texture!
i tried all strawberry, chocolate and original .. I still think original is the best 🙂
