Conveyor belt sushi!!! 😀  I’ve been wanting to try this out! 😀

After my facial at the Shatin Lucky Plaza, I remember passing by this conveyor belt sushi restaurant and decided to come in for dinner.  I didn’t realize it was Genki Sushi until we actually stepped in (oops, also forgot to take a picture of the storefront).  Genki Sushi (元氣壽司) is a Japanese-based chain.  I had Continue reading

Ying Kee Restaurant 英記茶餐廳 in Mong Kok

Ying Kee Restaurant 英記茶餐廳 (32 Ki Lung St, Mong Kok).

January 7, 2019:

It was our first full day in HK and of course I wanted to have a traditional Hong Kong style breakfast at a cha chaang teng. 😀

Jet lag held us captive and I was fully awake at 4 a.m.  Thus, why not start the day early and fight against my circadian rhythm? I looked up breakfast spots which were open at this ungodly hour and Ying Kee Restaurant popped up which was a 13-minute walk from our place and which served the traditional HK breakfast fare.

And so after we walked around the block looking at the restaurant choices, we stopped in here for a bowl of dan dan noodles with fried pork chops (HK $58). This restaurant served Shanghainese food.

My Year in Review: 2018

2018 year in review

My 2018

This year — what can I say?  2018 was the year that the most ever happened to me, in terms of positive amazingness/major life milestones and health-wise.

First of all, before I get into the bulk of what happened this year, I like to gloat about the trips that I had the privilege to take this year.  This year, in February, I got to travel to Yellowknife, Northwest Territories on a five-day trip with my extended family members to go dog sledding, “ice fishing”, and view the Aurora Borealis.  This was an amazing bucket-list travel spot and Continue reading
