Read the previous days here and here!
And the final day of our lovely trip T.T. It was a really lovely day! We took the train to Mongkok and just walked around. We headed for Sino Centre, the Mecca for Hong Kong Otakus but alas, it has not opened yet!
And we walked past 'Heng Hiong' the famous Wife Biscuit franchise store.
I've heard much about Hong Kong's Wife biscuits and was tasked to bring a box back.but when I first bite into the biscuit myself, I was so touched by the taste that I decided to lug 4box back! Mind you, 4 box weighed like 2kg!
The white lotus filling was so soft, chewy, sweet but not diabetical. The pastry outside was warm with light flaky layers. It was really awesome, especially when eaten fresh.
And with the kind suggestion from the aunties at Heng Hiong, we hopped over to our next destination.
Didn’t try any of this but Hiyuki and Jason were swearing by it’s good taste.
Fresh and succulent. The one with chives in them also had a slight tinge of salted fish *_*
Of course, who can forget every chinese’s favourite Dim Sum, Xiao Long Bao (Steamed Soup Dumpling)!
Some sort of fried glutinous rice balls with white lotus paste inside. Fragrant and not overwhelming sweet! The crunchy and fragrant sesame seeds really adds a lot of punch.
Guess what? I got a floating tea leave! That symbolises good luck ^_^
The food was good and fresh though the tea at 'Kuang Tong Xiao Chu' (our dining place the night before) was much more fragrant. But overall, the place was still nice and reasonably priced. The waiteress there were very helpful too !
Would definitely love to check the restaurant out again if I ever visit Hong Kong in the future. My only regret was not eating more =(
But I had to leave space for these!
After gorging ourselves with food, it was finally 2pm and we rushed back down to Sino Centre!
Sino Centre boast
One thing you can do (taught by Rochelle), is to visit the mall before the stores officially open and the crowd comes in. Then you'll be able to have a mental note of the items sold there and just hit the specific stores when they open.
Bought 2 gashapon APH figurines! Gave them to gin n-n
Sadly, this marks the end of my lovely Hong Kong trip. We had to rush back to the hotel around 4+, leaving Jerry behind alone.
