Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow

Riviera Parque Dining, Banquet & Convention Centre, Vaughan. May 2014

This is a Flashback Friday picture and also one that fits in doubly as this week’s Photo Challenge.  This week’s challenge was fun because I didn’t have to think too much but only scroll through my albums to watch for flashes of yellow.  No deep thinking involved.  Thank you, Daily Post team!   Continue reading

Häagen-Dazs in Hong Kong

Located at Shop 7, 1/F, apm Millennium City 5, 418 Kwun Tong Road, Kwun Tong in Hong Kong

Oh yum!!!  I got to try out an icy creation at one of the branches at Häagen-Dazs in Hong Kong. :D  This was my first time eating at this well-known and fancy pants ice cream shop — YOLO.  Previously, I’ve noticed how posh they are and how a lot of people tend to go crazy for Häagen-Dazs ice cream (usually girls) while I’ve never been that fond of them.  Continue reading

Korean Food at School Food

Located at Shop 107, 1/F, New Town Plaza Phase 1, 18 Sha Tin Centre Street, Sha Tin in Hong Kong

We finally had the chance to check out School Food, a Korean restaurant in Sha Tin.  (I swear, I’m pretty much checking off this whole block of restaurants here).  It’s funny that I willingly and excitedly decided on this restaurant considering we had JUST landed on the plane from South Korea a mere 10 hours ago.  I don’t mind Korean food one bit and I didn’t even get sick of eating kimchi during every single meal for six days straight.  Ha!   Continue reading

Wing Wah Noodle Shop (Hong Kong)

Located at 89 Hennessy Road, Wan Chai in Hong Kong

Wonton noodle restaurants are commonplace to see in Hong Kong but none has as long a history and is as classic as the one called Wing Wah Noodle Shop that resides on Hennessy Road in Wan Chai, Hong Kong.

At first, I didn’t even notice this restaurant much (as there was also no English name to its signage), but upon closer look, I noticed that the front of the restaurant is posted with a picture of the Michelin Man with some text.   Continue reading
