Ta da! I finally slept for a bit. Food helped. Kind of. But still had to wake up early for a fun packed day ahead. We finally got to go out without having to worry too much about anything else...
We had nice weather throughout the week, and I think I started tanning quite well. ^_^ (It's started to fade now... need more sun!).
MummyGeek and I went back to the congee place again. I think I've not had so much congee as a breakfast since I was a baby I bet. LOL!
On previous days I had seen people order this fried dough covered with cheung fun... I wanted to know what it was, because I've never had it before. It's called "fried two" Ja Leung 炸兩. The taste is hard to describe. It's got the texture of something fried and steamed at the same time. The fried dough loses it's crispy texture as the cheung fun takes over it. This was served slightly cold too. For me, I'll stick to fried dough and cheung fun separately. >_<"
Congee on this day was abalone and chicken flavour. Wow. At HK$40 (~£4.21) it was mega worth it! I think this would be a very expensive dish in London if restaurants started serving this. Triple price is likely! ¬_¬"... But wow, I was trying to leave the abalone last. The texture of it was soft and sweet enough to go with the congee... Amazing, I'm craving for this right now. ^_^
Total cost came to HK$94 (~£9.89). Still mega cheap for two people!
Time to head out now to Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry Stop! We took a bus (I think we took the 81C - forgot to take bus notes) and stopped at the very last stop, when we should have got off the stop before. In the end we had to walk back... But also in the meantime, we were looking for the Bruce Lee statue because I've never seen it!
We trekked back and forth, underground and ground floor level... It was like a hectic walkabout... MummyGeek got fed up and asked an old man who pointed to the opposite street that the statue was on the other side... I had actually wanted to go in a different direction as there were arrows pointing up (where we should have gone). :p
Finally, after walking across to the other side from below, walked a few kilometers, we noticed that the old guy was probably pointing to the old location of where the statues were at The Avenue of Stars. Unfortunately that part of the harbor is closed off for renovation. Fortunately, close by there was a lift directing us to The Garden of Stars... Phew! I think we would have got fed up if we didn't find it.
