Ngong Ping 360 & City Gate Outlet

After filling up our tummy with breaktfast at Kam Wah Cafe Mongkok, we proceed to our next destination, the Big Buddha @ Ngong Ping.

Old Mongkok Street

Cable car tickets can be bought from the hostel that we stayed, Ah Shan Hostel or you can buy the tickets online from Ngong Ping 360 website, here.

We took the MRT to Tung Chung station, to board our Crystal Cabin for our appointment with the Big Buddha. Going up the hill we took the Crystal Cabin, where you can have a 360 degree view during the whole ride.

Nothing much to see along the journey - trees, sea & bird.

When we arrived at our destination, the wind got stronger, but that didn't stop us from snapping pictures. Apart from the Big Buddha, we also met with TVB stars.

I think they were filming for some Chinese New Year greetings, as when we were there it was very near the CNY.

Breakfast in Hong Kong @ Kam Wah Cafe, Mongkok

On our second day at Hong Kong, we woke up early, as you can see all the shop's not opened yet. Semangat ma...but the sis's face already looking tired....

On our way to our traditional Hong Kong breakfast, we walked pass the 'Goldfish street'. Really alot of gold fish lo I tell you...

We ate at this particular cafe "Kam Wah Cafe" in Mongkok, only a street away from the place we stayed. Apparently, the cafe is famous for its Polo bao/Pineapple Bun but when we tasted it....

It's not that bad, the bun is crispy and soft on the inside, but the pineapple taste, we find it tasted artificial.

Famous HK Polo Bao : How to eat it (as thought by the sis)- As it is thick and crispy, biting into it will cause it to crumbles easily. Hence, a fork is provided, what you have to do is use the fork to press the bun flat so that it is easier to eat.

Love the strong tea aroma.

Jolie Nana Boutique

Hi all. Million apologies for the absence. Work has been taking up alot of my time.

And when I'm not working, I'll be managing my new found online store-Jolie Nana Boutique Why Jolie Nana and not any other names?

I don't know too, just hoping our stock will help to make all girls pretty. For those who doesn't know Jolie Nana is the French word for pretty girl.

Come over to our FB page to support us.

Skater Dress with Lacy Back (RM49)

Pretty in Lace (RM36)

And when I'm not doing the above 2, I'll be dreaming of travelling all around the world. But with the recent competition between airlines, it is actually benefiting us the consumer.

To me it is more travelling #happy#, which also means no $$. I know I have not been updating on my HK trip, promise will do so once I'm free.

Have taken tons of pictures during the trip to be shared with all. But just got no time to edit it all. Sorry sorry..

Ending this post with stinky tofu girl with her yummy-licious HK Stinky Tofu. buhbye~

Off to Hong Kong We Go

I've always wanted to vising Hong Kong, it must have been all the TVB series that I've watched since my childhood. Always wanted to try 細蓉 (sai yong),咖哩魚蛋 (curry fishball), 臭豆腐 (Smelly Tofu), Porridge, HK Egg tart and a lot more.

Being able to visit HK (12-17 Jan'13) is really a dream come true and a true gastronomical adventure. And also what made this trip so enjoyable and interesting is because I went with all my favourite people in my life.

And I'm now documenting all the details of the trip in my blog, so that I'll be able to read back and help reminds me of all the wonderful memories of our trip.

We of course travel the affordable way, which is Airasia, tickets were bought a year before our trip which costed around RM400, which is dirt cheap comparing to other airlines.

Our in-flight food, Chicken Rice & Mushroom Soup.

My 2012 Oink Oink Bday - El Cerdo

Pardon my nerdy/act-cute photo. On my ahem, not-so-young-anymore-bday, I decided to go cute with the big-ass specs. I suppose if I didn't act cute this year, I cannot afford to do it the following years.

Before the dinner, we had tea at Dreamz Bakery at Kota Damansara.

My darlings ♥

Carbonara @ RM12.90. Not much of food selections, but I love their spaghetti, very creamy, with 3 fresh prawns, mushrooms and bits of smoked salmon.

Chocolate cheese. Japanese-style I assume as the cheese is very light-weight, to our liking.

Dreamz Bakery
No 32-1, The Strand Jalan PJU 5/20D
Pusat Perdagangan Kota Damansara
47810 Petaling Jaya (Close on every Tuesday)

And now to the star of the day, El Cerdo at Changkat Bukit Bintang.

First of all, a happy picture of me with my 2012 present. 

And next, Xmas present from the big sista ♥

El Cerdo means 'The Pig' in Spanish and the place is famous for its pork dishes from around the world.

The place is very cosy with good service and with good food. A highly recommended place for a good family dinner or even for an outing with friends.

We are first greeted with soft, complimentary bread with pork liver spread?

Jamon Serrano. Imported Spanish cured & air-dried ham served on rock melon and salad. There are alot of thin ham varieties on the plate. Some of the ham is a bit salty, recommended to be eaten with the condiments which are served together.
