Hong Kong: Day 5

The next day, we got lost trying to find the restaurant that we saw on one of Anthony Bourdain’s many redundant (yet engrossing) shows.  Did it fail to disappoint?  Man, did it ever fail to not disappoint.  First of all its a long line full of tourists that all happen to have his show translated into their native languages.  I’m probably wrong about this, but this is an american blog and the world revolves around us.  I’m sticking to this falsity.

Anyways, it was a long line, small portions, a little pricey, and not really worth it.  It is clean though and foreigner friendly… if you’re into that sort of thing.

A few of the things you have to see in Hong Kong are related to malls.  We came to this mall purely for the long escalator.  It was indeed an escalator.  It was also long.

Okay, it was pretty neat.

After that, Brian had a temple visit, Chi Lin Nunnery, planned and it did seem interesting at the time.  All that I’ll say is that the pictures turned out well.  Also note that Brian shouldn’t be adding things to the itinerary.

If a man is on the street selling something in a little baggie, you should give the nice man money and consume it.  Turned out well this time too!  It was sugary, I liked it, the little kid after me also like it.  Win win all around.

We made our way through the Fa Yeun Street Market (flower market) to get to the Yuen Po Street Garden. If you have a fear for birds and crickets, I advise staying away from this place! I, on the other hand, thought it was amazing.

After arriving in Hong Kong, I don’t know how many times we’ve seen this skyline, but this was our first time watching the Avenue of the Stars light show. It was disappointing to say the least! Seriously, nothing special here. Lets move on.

We ended the evening having traditional wonton noodle soup. The BEST EVER. Thanks mom for the recommendation. This place has a signage only written in Chinese (not to be confused with Mak’s a few doors down), but if you ever find yourself in Hong Kong, I highly recommend this spot. It’s called Mak Man Kee Noodle Shop. Portions are small, but we’re Americans and everything is small to us!
