HONG KONG: GIANT SOUFFLE

So this is the Giant Soufflé (梳乎里) at 太平馆


Ally claimed she could eat one all by herself.

"I think one isn't enough for all 5 of us," Tammy was quick to add.  How come they seemed to have forgotten that we already ate 2 rice dishes, a pig trotter, Swiss Chicken Wings, as well as a broccoli dish beforehand?! 

Still, if everybody thinks we should order two - TWO! - who am I to object? Have you ever seen anything like it?  I mean, look  at the SIZE of that thing!  It's twice as large as my head.  And did you know that each Giant 梳乎里 contains 8 eggs?


Out of this world - fluffy, silky, and very very light.   I bet if you bit into cloud it would feel just like that.

HONG KONG: TIME OFF

For those of you who have been asking about photos of the trip, I'm afraid I took very few. Here's the view from my room at the Hotel Panorama, Tsim Sha Tsui. I was allocated a corner room on the 31st floor. The fog lends melancholy to the early morning.



Bumped into Chocolate Rain whilst wandering alone in TST.  I love the quirky artworks!





Came upon these while walking aimlessly around TST.  At first glance I thought they were real bread.  I don't know what these rubber buns are for but their expressions really crack me up.  Maybe that's exactly what they're made for: to give us a chance to laugh out loud.

HONG KONG: RESTORATION

It has been 7 weeks since my last post. Friends wanted to know what I've been up to. You know what, I have NO idea! I felt like a hamster on a wheel - working really hard but I'm not going anywhere. Some days I just want to scream and burst into tears.  I was so frustrated.

Seriously needed time away.  So I booked four nights in Hong Kong during the Good Friday weekend. I had originally intended to sneak in and out of the country without informing a single soul so I can spend much alone time hiding in my hotel room to feel sorry for myself. I'm glad I didn't do something silly like that after all.

Friends turned up in waves with planned activities and dinner invitations. These humans are such treasures and I'm so, so, so overwhelmed by their eagerness.  Through fab food, plentiful conversations and cool company, restoration came.  It's hard to express my gratitude towards these amazing people.  I thank you all so much.

Tammy sacrificed much of her bank holiday to spend time with me.  She showed me her favourite haunts and invited me (and a few close friends) to her home for dinner.  Even her young niece drew pictures to cheer me up. I simply must show them off to you here. Step aside, Coplu!  Isn't 晴晴 a talented little girl?
