Day 2 of 3 Nights in HK

Day 2 :
Was contemplating whether I should go for Jenny’s cookies which eventually I caved in ! I am sure many others would have written about how horrid the queue was already, as even on normal days, the average queuing time was probably about an hour or so. And considering you have to braved the sun and rain to queue outside the building too. The price to pay ! But else, you just gotta try it once there and then. So I joined the queue.

Lucky me ! Half an hour was all I took ! Let’s just say I shall post the review in another post on another day yeah ! Cookies were not cheap and only payable in cash. So do make sure you have enough funding if you plan to buy alot !

Imagine I lugged 3 tins of butter cookies, walking around Wanchai and Causeway Bay for 6 hours ! Because Tsim Sha Tsui was on the way to Wanchai, instead of heading back to hotel, I thought it would be easier if I just proceed on.

“I Love Cake” at Shanghai Street was closed for renovation. So part of the itinerary was to visit its Wanchai store. The prices were slightly more expensive than the shops at Shanghai Street but had a greater variety of cartoon silicon moulds which could not be found there.

I brought back these baby Donald cookie cutters and silicon mould plus a heart shaped cast iron mould !

Oh yeah, and I happened to spot the protests in Wanchai ! They were indeed lots of people but the protests were quite orderly.

And I past by the Wanchai wet market too and I thought I would just go one quick round to see if I could spot anything interesting.

Quite akin to our local wet market scene. And I spotted this unusual plant at one of the florists.

Causeway Bay – been a long time since I last came here for shopping. I dunked myself in the air-conditioned SOGO department store where I spotted the Hello Kitty Le Petit Cafe which is pretty much a kiosk for take-away macarons and coffee.

Grabbed some takoyaki balls to snack along the way too.

Then I headed for Hysan Place, where the biggest bookstore in HK, ESLITE is found. Eslite is from Taiwan so much of the selection of recipes books are from the same too. Comparatively to TW, the prices here are slightly more expensive but definitely still cheaper than Kinokuniya in SG.

My grabs from Eslite !

Headed to Tai Hang for the newly-opened Hello Kitty Secret Garden cafe. Because of this morning’s luck at Jenny’s cookies queue time, I was secretly hoping for the same here too ! But else, lady’s luck has probably gone to a rest and she wasn’t with me anymore. There were only 4 tables in the cafe and the queue was building up. Even though I wasn’t a hard core Hello Kitty’s fan but I was still disappointed.

Many people goes to Temple Street for their claypot rice which I tried previously and somehow still preferred our local ones anytime. Instead, I was in search for this streetside stall that sells very good and well marinated grilled stuffs. There was no signboard and it’s difficult to describe where you can find this stall. If you stand facing the stall, you can see a neon signboard that says “永兴酒店”. It’s somewhere at the cross junction in the middle of Temple Street.
