~*chlowe's first trip to hongkong: day 3*~

After gathering some foodie info from the taxi driver we decided to try a 'new' dimsum place which is called 'very good restaurant'.

I know the name sounds so boastful. When we arrived it feels like We've actually been to this place before! Yes! We actually did!
This is actually one of the dishes tat we ordered and I love it. Anyways tat was like nearly three years ago. We stopped by hongkong after my huawei training in Shenzhen. I wonder when r we going to have another training? Anyways. How did I manage to remember the place? 

By these of course. I remember the tons of Hk actors and actresses pics all posted near the entrance. This place tasted so much better than Tim ho wan. 

If you have watched the tvb series 'brotherhood' then u will know wat is the significance of this picture. 
Anyways today is baby shopping day. All about chlowe. Cause daddy complained tat I've been shopping so much for myself and nothing for chlowe. Oh well guess my position in my dad's heart had jus gone down one rank. Anyways nothing to compare about. Who will not love this cutie pie of mine? 

Our first stop is to isquare mall cause I found online tat it's the nearest 'baby r us' near us. With the help of the complimentary phone's gps we were able to look for the mall in a jiffy. No more stupid paper maps which make u look like typical tourists. :p

Found it. I Donno why the camera is so blur. But who cares. Snap snap. 

Look how happy my bb is in the stroller provided. Away we go shopping. There r quite a few new toys which I've never seen before. Dad bought her a new stroller which was pretty light weight and easy to use too. Unlike the free mothercare stroller which we got last time when we purchase the bed. Tat was horrendous. It's so heavy. But it did help us a lot during our spore trip. 
The good thing about traveling with a baby is tat you get to rest ur legs every 3 hours or so. We wanted to try the baby cafe which was in the same building. Thinking it will serve baby food or something 

Damn spoilt by her grandparents. Abit hungry like I've starved her for ten days. 

The ambiance of the baby cafe is so good. Definitely not a baby- baby cafe. Haha. Apparently it's a restaurant which was opened by one of the famous models in hongkong Angelababy. 

The real Angelababy

The mock Angelababy... Handelababy

Back to the restaurant. We were all too lazy to choose so we opt for the set meal which was jus hkd128. 

Our amuse bouche 

Homemade garlic butter and olive buns. Double thumbs up. 

Seafood chowder soup. Very smooth and milky. 
My hb chose the prawn salad instead of the soup. 

Now this is the bomb. Mint infused camomile tea with honey. Yummy. 

This is my parents' main course. Honey black pork chop. I tried it. Heavenly. The pork is so tender and juicy. One would expect the pork to be dry and hard. But this is juicy. Maybe cause they use black pig. Oink oink. 

Hubby wanted something light for lunch so he opt for the paper wrapped sole with green tea leaves and veggies. 

The fish is tender and not dry. Perfectly cook. Now for my dish. I love my mains.

It's called the Angela tasting platter which consist of spaghetti Napoleon, scrambled egg with truffles on bread and seated salmon fillet tartare. 
I super love the egg with truffles. The spaghetti is jus okie. Nothing to shout for. But the salmon is great. It's so perfectly done. 


Last but not least they even hav creme brûlée as dessert. 

One would hav wonder where is chlowe. She's was dozing off the whole time we were having our nice lunch. Such a charm. She only woke up when we paid our bills. 

After tat we went to visit our frens in Hk. Dior and her hubby Alex. They both run a toy business in hongkong. 

Look at the amount of toys they hav in the meeting room. This is jus one of the corners of the office which was filled with toys. 

Look at how happy my bb is. She like 'wow am I dreaming' 
Their office is situated near the famous fountain where most of the Hk series r filmed. 

More than 2 decades ago my mum was carrying me and we took a picture with this fountain too. Time sure flies. We should really cherish every moment in life. We should not jus follow wat we think people will like us to be. We live our life and we only live once. So better live it the way we wan it.

~*my sick baby*~

My poor little baby is sick. The puked 3 times consecutively within a minute! Like a Merlion! I was completely shocked! First time she puked I was like oh Okies nothing much. Then within a gap of few seconds she puked again. Then it didn't stop. She puked again and this time even out through her nose!!! I was completely blanked in wat to do! Panic and couldn't do anything. Luckily maid was there. I felt so hopeless. The sight of her puke came out from the nose and mouth is jus unforgettable. Poor baby! Took her to see the doc immediately but doc told us she's fine and not to worry. I hope she gets well soon. I guess maybe the antibodies in my breast milk is not working anymore or not efficient for her at the age of 9 months. *sad*

~*worst festive season*~

IF i have to vote for the worst festive season then it would have to be CHINESE NEW YEAR. i terribly hate this time of year. I hated it way before i got married. As a child i hated it. i donno why some people love it so much. During my childhood days, i will hav to go back to Penang to celebrate it and it is so boring. The worst time of the year to visit penang, would be during CNY. It's extremely hot and humid. i felt like being roasted there. Had to wake up like 7ish in the morning get dressed and wait for relatives to come...BORING...relatives will be asking stupid questions again. forever the same. it's like it's templated. will talk more about the templated questions later in the post. Then have to go house visitings *BOO*. When i thought CNY would be better after i got married...WRONG THINKING. It's even worst! *yes hubby, if u r reading this. i don enjoy CNY!*

woke up dressed nicely and guess wat. ONLY one family of relative will come. no joke. 1! then we will have to wait for 2 session of lion dance to come and tat's it. first day of chinese new year. OMG. so basically it's like staying and home and wait for durian to drop *boredom to the max* (FYI, this is wat happened for the past two years. it's like de javu).

i always wanted something nicer for Chlowe and hope tat she can enjoy it. Won't wan her to go through wat i went through for CNY. *screams for help if this year is as boring as last two years i will CRY and pulls hair*

Questions that almost all 'relatives' will be asking this year
Q1) How old is your baby?
A: since u nvr attended my baby's full moon, i will excuse you for not knowing

Q2) when are you going to give birth to second one?
A: nope 1 is enough

Q3) but why only 1, must hav a son 
A: wat stupid era is this. any god-damn relative asking me to give birth to a son will sure to get a big bomb from me this year. Hate those old fashioned people. i support 1 child policy. it's my life, my uterus so those annoying relatives who wans a son can go f*ck off. 

*pissed mode and praying that CNY will zoom by ASAP*

~*the lost ME*~

What script are we supposed to follow in life? It seems like the we are all actors and actresses on the stage trying to make a play which can satisfy our 'audiences'. We only live one life. Do we really wanna go through all those unhappiness jus to please other people? I guess I'm going through this mid life crisis. Thinking tat i will be 30 in jus a couple of months time makes me feel tat I haven't achieved much my whole entire 30 years. My biggest achievement by far was giving birth to chlowe. And basically tats it. Jus very sick and tired of going through unhappy arguments over the same topic. A topic which is always be a start of an argument. How I wish I will hav a strength and courage just to take the initial step to stand up to the 'audiences' and shout 'I DON WANNA ACT NO MORE!'. I know there r jus so many things in life I will regret when I flip through my life chapter on my death bed on day. Should I or should I not make sure tat I will not hav any regrets. Or continue this way and die with regrets?? There's jus a long list of things tat I really wanna do and hav not yet done or can't be done. How I wish I could be given a year chance to do Watever I wan. Jus a year to find myself. Felt I've lost myself...

~*diy Santa baby hat*~

I'm a very kiasu mother and I really wan my baby to hav a great first Xmas. But wat is a Xmas without a nice Xmas outfit and a Santa hat? I was already searching for a nice outfit for her when we were in Hong Kong but I jus couldn't find anything nice or suitable for my baby. Went to mothercare but the Santa clothings had too much fur around the trimmings which is not suitable for my baby as she tends to lick anything on her clothings and she might end up having a furball in her tummy at the end of the day after wearing tat. 
Luckily I managed to ask my fren eve about the whereabouts of getting a Xmas outfit and where else but 'wrap in a box'. Totally missed tat place out. I always remember tat place for selling high tea stuff but I forgot tat eve actually got me really cute clothings and shoes from there too during my baby shower. 
Oh ya. Back to the Santa hat first. Luckily I managed to find a couple of Santa hats in the cupboard which was given to us at the Xmas dinner in empire last year. So decided to DIY it to make it smaller. 
The original size. The quality is not bad actually. It's still okie even after the threads were removed. 
Look at my little red riding hood. After removing the threads I then remember. WE DIDNT HAV THREADS AND NEEDLES AT HOME!! FML. Panic attacked. Went to the house in front and wanted to borrow some threads and needles. But no one was home. Panic attacked again. Luckily hubby said since he's going out to kiarong to get baby's clothings he can stop by hokko to get my thread and needles. Hubby saved the day. Hence asked the maid to sew it for me as I hav nvr sewn anything before. Hehe. Yes it's DIY because I cut the threads. Maybe it's a AMDIY. ask maid to diy. Now the end product. 
My Santa baby!! Happy with the end results.

~*chlowe's first trip to hongkong: day 2*~

IToday's itinerary is to try out one of the best dim sum in hongkong which all bloggers have been raving about. Tim Ho wan. Our initial plan was to try outthe Australia dairy company which is located along parkes street, 47. They opened from 7am to 11pm. However, my dad had to meet up with my third uncle from Canada who was coincidentally here in hongkong too for vacation. 
It's uncle Tony's first time meeting baby chlowe too. When we reached the Australian dairy company there was a long massive queue so we gave up and went to other cafe instead. 
*us at park lane. Our hotel is jus opposite park lane*
Now for the highlight of the day...Tim ho wan. My fren helped me pre book the VIP room so tat we don't hav to queue. Reach sham Sui po on the dot and walked proudly passed the long beeline and went straight to the VIP upstairs. (In my mind I was visualizing a nice room with good and clean ambiance). The moment I open the door! Omg! Mosquitoes flew out from the room and I saw a chandelier hanging from a ceiling which was so dirty. I dare not focus anything 45 degrees from my eye level. The cutleries and plates were so dirty. I can see like dead mosquitoes on my plate and some black bits of 'I Donno wat'. I had to ask for a bowl of hot water to sterilize those plates before using it. Okies I know I should not judge the food base on the place. So I was still hav high expectation in the food. Cause I've been to places which r dirty but their food is damn good. 
The har kau is jus borderline pass. Not great!
Now this is the only thing which I will say the best of the best. The top is really nice and filled with char Siew. Basically it's like char Siew pau with crispy top. 
This is one of the dishes which we had to order in advance from the VIP menu. Some birdnest thingy which is not even tat yummy. Note: you hav to spend hkd1000 of u wan to book the VIP room. 
We ordered 18 of the birdnest egg tarts cause all of us hav high expectations tat this will be nice. Honestly I will still think a normal egg tart in lei garden taste so much better than this. Disappointing. I can't be bothered to even take pictures of the rest of the food. Overall rating 1/5. Not worth the taxi money or the queue. I forgot to even take a photo of the braised chicken feet. They didn't even bother to do pedicure for the chicken feet. Yucks. Disgusting. Epic fail. I Donno wat happened to their Michelin star. 
After the horrendous lunch we went to Times Square to shop. Hoping to see some performances in Times Square but there wasn't any famous singers performing there. I think the entertainment industry in hongkong is really dying. I won't even recognize most of the new singers in Hk now. Wat happened to the golden era 90s. Who doesn't know Aaron kwok, Andy lau, Leon Lai or jacky cheung? Now the new singers r like normal people. It seems like whoever can open their mouth and talk can sing and be a singer. I mean if they can't sing but at least hav to look good but the new singers now don even look cute! Disappointing. I think the music industry really needs a revamp and the high ranking personnel should see to it. If not canton pop will be gone forever. Every trip I go hongkong I'm hoping tat I can meet my idol Nicholas Tse but unfortunately didn't get to see him. 
My bb knows how to pose for selfies too. 
Who says mummies can't be posers? 
Things we do while waiting for our receipts at the Burberry store. 
My Burberry from my daddy. Jus love going holidays with my atm. 
Went back to tsim sa tsui side for dinner at the famous wanton noodle shop called Mak man kei which is located at 51, parkes street jordon. We jus had to queue a bit. The shop is so so small. We had to sit in a small corner and poor baby of mine barely hav space to sit cause we had to carry her on our laps and the size between the table and chairs r jus so small. Seriously this is not about discrimination but fat people better not go to tat shop. I barely can move after I was seated! 
We ordered two of their well known dishes. The wantan noodles soup and the 'nam Yu' pork leg noodles soup. I personally think it was jus mediocre. 
U can see how not al Dante the texture is. I thought it will be so springy. 
The shrimp wantan is not bad. Quite delicious. 
Now this pork leg seriously needs some waxing session. I dare not eat after seeing the hairs all on the skin of the pork leg. Ewww. So disgusted. 
After Mak man kei we decided to try our luck at the Australia dairy company. Hoping tat the queue is okie. Luckily we manage to get a seat. But the place is so noisy and crowded tat bb jus cried the moment we sat down. Guess she was frighten of the people yelling while taking orders. 
This is the egg custard with almond I think. I only had a scoop of it and it's heavenly smooth!
This is the steam milk custard which was supposed to be shared amongst us but it was jus so good tat I ate it all by myself. 
I know it's awkward to be having breakfast meal at 8pm but honestly i love breakfast! Any time of the day it's fine for me. The scrambled egg is the bomb!! I Donno how to describe it but it's so smooth and the taste is so nice. It's so addictive that I kept shoving spoons after spoons of scrambled eggs into my mouth. Too bad I didn't really hav time to taste the goodness of the egg lingering in my mouth as I had to rush back to the hotel with my crying bb. Unfortunately my hubby didn't get to eat the yummilicious scrambled egg. I'm really reminiscing the flavor of the egg now in my mouth. 5 stars from me.
