Still can’t figure out if the alphabets form any words, or mean anything.

Atop mini mountains a couple of days after Christmas

Following our Christmas binge gluttony over the weekend, we embarked on a hike for some fresh air and much needed exercise. Life is good with pepper jack cheese and ham sandwiches plus paper cups of rosé. Here’s to a wonderful new year ahead everyone !

On Lee Noodle Shop

We had noticed On Lee Noodle Shop on our way to the museum only because of the number of people queuing outside the eatery at (the awkward post-lunch pre-dinner hour of) 4pm. By the time we left the museum, we were craving ramen but decided to give On Lee Noodle Shop a try since the queue was gone.

Best decision ever, even if I had passed up on beef brisket the eatery is known for. This is probably the closest to fishball mee pok tah in Hong Kong. Gonna have to bring mom here the next time she is in town for her expert verdict. I’ll most definitely be back soon.

The Moustache Guide to Hong Kong

I had relied on the PDF version of this guide when I first moved to Hong Kong a year and a half ago. It was the perfect introduction to Hong Kong, with bite-sized anecdotes of charming little places to check out that makes for a good read even if one is not heading out to explore at all.

Was lucky to pop by Moustache last Saturday with J who needed to get a new suit made. Pick up your copy (HKD 100) at Moustache before it runs out !

Food frenzy #37

This is about as hardcore as it gets. The first thing I did after I’d gotten off the plane in Shanghai was to head straight to my old neighborhood for the much-anticipated malatang and chuan’r fix, with luggage in tow.

Ordered lamian by mistake when I had actually wanted daoxiaomian. Good mistake though, I haven’t had lamian in ages.
