Initially planned to wake up extra early to visit the Goldfish and Flower market but somehow I overslept cos I was not sleeping well the whole night and only managed to doze up before dawn. Anyway, Hubby and I decided to skip breakfast at the hotel. Night before I discovered that there is a Cafe de Coral (HK fast-food chain) outlet at the shopping mall next door...and with Loh Mai Kai (Steamed Glutinous Rice with Chicken) dancing in my mind, I know I must have my breakfast here. We were too early and was told that Loh Mai Kai is not ready and the only option available was sandwiches. I was so upset and so we ordered their Tuna and Egg with Tomato Sandwich which came with Ham & Cheese each as well as Milk Tea. The sandwiches tasted okay, nothing great or memorable but the Milk Tea was good. Really thick and creamy...mmm...love it.
While munching on the sandwiches, I overheard a guy asking for Loh Mai Kai and the cashier replied that it will be available in 10 minutes. With still some time to spare, I quickly grab my purse and headed to the counter. For your information, their version of Loh Mai Kai is actually our Lotus Leaf rice. If not mistaken, the Loh Mai Kai costs about HKD14 and it's HUGE with lots of ingredients such as chicken wings, chinese sausages, mushroom, salted egg yolk, diced pork, dried shrimp and diced mushrooms. During my last trip, I actually bought 7 pieces home for my dad and colleagues. Yummy...a must try!
There was a half-day tour after the breakfast, first stop, Avenue of Star which is Hong Kong Walk of Fame located along the Victoria Harbour waterfront in TsimTsaTsui. This is the first time visiting the place in the morning, not a great idea though cos it was HOT! It's much better view at night.
Golden Bauhinia Square was next but no photos of it cos Hubby and I stayed in the bus since we have taken lots of photos here during past visits. I did mentioned in the comment box of my previous post that this post will be glamour. Well, we headed to the Peak where we got the option to visit Madame Tussaud, Hong Kong's wax museum. Entrance fee was about HKD100 and since we got very slim chance of bumping into a Hong Kong artist, why not visit the wax museum instead?

Hubby with his idol, Tiger Wood. Ehh...where is the golf ball??? Look see look see!!
Neh...can see or not? Tiger, over there lah...
Quite fun posing with those figurines. Hubby was hoping to take a pic with Kelly Chen but the staff told us that it's under repair cos her elbow was broken. Sigh...still feels bad cos lots of cool photos could not be posted. I got the same problem with Disneyland photo..how how? So I do an exception and post my photo? Anyway, next destination was Repulse Bay to visit the popular beach as well as the temple nearby, sorry, again no photo cos taken too many during previous visits. There is a giant Kuan Yin statue together with a God of Prosperity where all visitors can touch in hope to be a millionaire. Hubby touched it but I did not. Why? I touched it 2 years ago and I didn't become a millionaire!!!!
Lunch was at Causeway Bay, boy oh boy, just could not contain my excitement as we will be heading to Disneyland after this. And sorry guys, Disneyland in next post yah!
