Going Back Singapore Happy & Fulfilled on 24Feb2017

HK airport popeye’s

finally it was time to check out hotel & return to singapore, on 24.2.2017.

that concluded our 5 day hong kong eat & hike, 31 blog posts in all including this post.

it was really enjoyable. we were totally relaxed, and did only things we felt like doing, and ate what we felt like eating. ^^

we actually did more visits & walking than was initially planned-

  1. we did the Panoramic, Serene, Contemplative Peak Circle Walk on Day 1
  2. not so much hiking but nice Cheung Chau Island Walk 长洲岛一游 on Day 2
  3. an unplanned tour of The Magnificent Tian Tan Buddha aka Big Buddha 天坛大佛 at ngong ping. & last but not least;
  4. & a wonderful, kind of unexpected Dragon’s Back Shek O Peak Hike

and of course we ate about all the food we had wanted to try –

  1. we had Hong Kong’s best roast goose @ Yat Lok Stanley Street
  2. top value HK$118 for 1/2 roast goose & HK$58 for 1 kg steamed live garoupa @ Tao Heung 稻香 Tsimshatsui
  3. the famed Hong Kong Tai Cheong egg tarts @ Tai Cheong Bakery 泰昌饼家
  4. the best congee & braises @ 振记粥面店 at chueng chau market
  5. wonderful claypot rice HK$480 set inner for 4pax @ Chuen Moon Kee 銓满记 
  6. very good congee @ Mui Kee Congee 妹記生滾粥品
  7. wonderful beef brisket noodles @ 牛棚粉麵專家
  8. good walnut & sesame paste dessert @ Hoi Kee Walnut Place 海記合桃坊甜
  9. most satisfying daipaidong meal in Hong Kong @ Minsheng Daipaidong 民声冰室
  10. great polo buns with Butter 菠萝油 @ Kam Wah Cafe 金华冰厅

and now, it’s time to return Singapore, happy & fulfilled, relishing the new memories of a wonderful time together for 4 OPS buddies.

for this trip, we also managed to get S$310pax promo SQ airtickets, and booked a very convenient metropark hotel located almost next to prince edward mtr station, and costing just HK$550nett/room night.

at the airport, one friend went to buy some fried chicken & chips from popeye’s. for me, after putting on easily 2kg – 3kg during the few days, it was time to reduce intake & manage weight – ironic but necessary. a matter of selective diet & weight management.

we leaving for singapore today on 24.2.2016. checking out at 12pm & then taking a taxi to airport. so no plans to go too far, just relaxed.

we had a good polo bun 菠萝包 at hong lin restaurant 康年餐厅 the other day. the friend who sleeps late did not try it, so we thought of going back.

on the way we passed by kam wah cafe 金华茶餐厅. good traffic but there was no queue. so quite suits us.

this supposed to be the best polo bun restaurant in hong kong, according to some reviews.  my RI group was not too impressed the last time we were here. anyhow a revisit was surely in order. 🙂

this time, maybe i beginning to take some liking to polo buns since i shared a 1/4 at hong lin restaurant 康年餐厅, i actually quite enjoyed it.

i shared 1/2 this time. i think can do one next time la… haha!

we ordered 3 polo buns with butter 菠萝油, one french toast & egg tarts.

the place had a good crowd.

the server very chatty & chat up a conversation with my 2 cantonese friends. i think that made the breakfast more fun & enjoyable too.

egg toast

egg toast

the egg toast/french toast quite good, not my kind of food though.

egg tart

egg tart

the egg tart passable but not in the same league as tai cheong egg tarts.

pastry not so crimbly & not so tasty. egg custard itself ok i guess, somehow overall not as good, maybe psychological??

this time my breakfast quite enjoyable. my friends actually thought the polo buns with butter 菠萝油 here better than hong lin restaurant 康年餐厅. i can’t really tell, but i enjoyed it both times.

eat less enjoy more???
