Hong Kong City.
Felt good to be back in Hong Kong for a few days during the Songkran Holiday. Wish I could spend more time indulging in comfort chinese food and walking around with such nice cooling weather. It was so foggy the few days I was there but the weather was still pretty nice compared to the crazy grueling heat we have now in Bangkok. Nice hotel room stay at Royal Plaza, they renovated and the whole hotel was given an uplift and looked totally different from my previous stay there a few years back. They gave an upgrade to the executive level and their bathroom was totally gorgeous with a TV in it. And whats better is that there was a Nescafe Dolce Gusto Machine in the room to make coffee every morning before leaving. Comfort chinese cuisine will always win my heart, the food in Hong Kong is always a reason to go back. Will always have good memories of this special city ever since I came here the first time.
Till the next time...

Tim Ho Wan, Sham Shui Po. Hong Kong.
So excited to try those famous 1 Michelin pork buns after reading and hearing so many good reviews. And wow, those pork buns are crazy, they tasted so damn good when served. Crispy and sweet on the outside, those pork buns were so so satisfying and worth it. We dined in, and were lucky there wasn't any queue when we reached. Decided not to go to the Mongkok branch because everyone says they have the longest queues. Thus, decided to take the train a few stops to Sham Shui Po, got lost awhile but finally, when you get to eat those pork buns hot from the oven served in front of you, its worth it all. A day before leaving Hong Kong, we couldn't get enough of these delicious buns, decided to head to the other outlet at Hong Kong MTR station to take away more to eat before heading to Victoria Peak. Wish there was more time to dine in for a second time, oh well, its a must must try! Yes yes, it recently opened back home in sunny island too but I'm glad I got to try it in authentic Hong Kong.
