The One About Hong Kong (Part 2)

On our second day in Hong Kong, we kicked it off with a half-day city tour.  It was my first time in Hong Kong so a city tour was imperative.  We were entertained by an animated tour guide named Jacky Leung, and along with other Filipinos, took us to our first stop - the Avenue of Stars.

We also went to Jacky Chan's jewelry factory, food outlets, Victoria Peak, and Aberdeen Fishing Village but I got too lazy to take pictures.  When the city tour was finished, we asked to dropped off in Tsim Sha Tsui to burn our pocketbooks.  Hahaha!  But first, we had to satisfy our grumbling tummies...

Hon-some had the barbecued pork/duck again (I forget which) while I had the roasted Hainanese chicken.

I loved the glistening rice which was cooked in chicken broth.

Deciding which sauce went with the chicken best was too hard to make. :)

Energized, we then hit the shops!

Before going back to the hotel, we stopped by a street food stall and ordered all of these for a song!  Hofan noodles, real Hong Kong fried noodles, siopao, egg tarts, and lobster balls!

I wanted to take a closer shot of the Hofan noodle.  Whereas in Manila, Hofan noodles are flat and cut up, in Hong Kong, the flat noodles are rolled.

And that was how we spent our second day in Hong Kong - our tummies were at their happiest and our wallets were at their saddest.  Haha!
