My Happy Place - 2017 HK Photo Diary Pt. II

It was a really cold night where the temperature dropped to 13 degree (at noon it was around 21). I remembered spending the night shivering behind my blanket since I just don't handle cold really well. 

But anyway, now we've come to the second day of the trip. Some people believe that if the queue for something is long, that proves that it's good, but I was pretty pessimistic for Australia Dairy Company, I mean how mindblowing could some scrambled egg be, right?

The queue took us around 30-45 mins before we finally made it inside. We have prepared ourselves for the rudeness of the waiters since everyone on the internet has warned us about it, but the waiters were so kind to us! They smiled a lot, made some jokes and even offered help to take our pictures before we even asked! (We didn't dare to, actually). 

Though you'd have to queue outside for quite some time, but worry not because the service inside was almost as quick as lightning! Our order took less than 5 mins to reach our table and ready to be munched. 

Pro tips: come with knowing first what you want to order so you can avoid being scolded by the waiters for taking too much time of their lives waiting for you to order. Ps. No English menu available.

Sooooo was it worth the wait? I tell you ya, IT'S FREAKING WORTH IT! LOL I maybe need to chill a bit, but really the scrambled egg was like nothing I have ever tasted before, it's moist, it's just.. perfect. Go try it someday if you visit HK next time!

To the next destination, Mong Kok Flower Market! It wasn't really the prettiest spot to take self portrait, but I bet it will lighten up your mood seeing the pretty flowers displayed. Besides, most of the flowers there were the ones we don't see much in Indonesia, so I think this place was worth a quick visit.

After strolling around the flowers market, we headed to Wan Chai for there were some spots we read which were pretty Instagram-worthy (I really have overused this phrase).

Could you even guess that the cute small blue building was a dumpster? LOL doesn't matter, take photos! Around the. neighbourhood there was also this little cafe, Omotesando Koffee, which I knew from a local friend's check in on Path, apparently this place was quite popular, counting on the crowds who dropped by.

I thought we were supposed to try more local food, but at the end we went to an Ichiran Ramen stall in Tsim Sha Tsui and I finally had my first Ichiran experience here in HK, not in Japan. But blame it to my poor taste bud, I didn't feel like it was such an awesome bowl of ramen that I could easily just pick Ikkudo Ichi over it, but maybe I just haven't tried the authentic one in Japan, yes? By the way, the stall in TST was the only one in the world where we could choose to sit personally (like in Japan) or sit in groups like other normal restaurants. We chose to sit together, by the way.

Pumped after an IDR 200K meal for a bowl of ramen, we made use the energy to take photos in the nearby area of Victoria Harbour. PS. No proper pictures of me, sorry :P

We spent the rest of the night at Mong Kok, strolling around the area and finally, another day has gone, another post was done! Only another one to go and I have another project that I have done about this trip, really can't wait to share it with you. Thanks for reading this and ciao!
