上海廳 Shanghai Teng, Temple Mall HK

Ever since our first visit to Wong Tai Sin around two years ago, it’s one of the places we almost always never fail to visit when we’re in Hong Kong. Also, since the MTR stop to get to Wong Tai Sin is on the same line as Prince Edward and Mongkok, we would, more or less, always make a side trip to to visit the temple as well. 😀

Something that I like about Wong Tai Sin is the fact that there’s a mall nearby so you can easily find a place to eat before or after your visit to the temple. During our last visit, before heading to the temple we went to Temple Mall and ate at Shanghai Teng – one of the various Chinese restaurants that can be found in the area.

Pizza Express, Tung Chung Hong Kong

Pizza Express is one of the restaurants that I’ve often seen around the UK during our trip there. If I’m not mistaken, it’s also one of the well-known chains hailing from the UK. It was founded by Peter Boizot in 1965 with around 400 restaurants open alone in the UK and 40 overseas in Europe, Hong Kong, India, the Middle East, and soon in Manila, Philippines!

Having read the news that they were going to open in Manila, and being a pizza fanatic myself, I knew then that I just had to try it out! Though I wasn’t able to try Pizza Express at their home court in the UK, I was lucky that there’s one close by in the hotel that we were staying at during our trip to Hong Kong. I was able to try some of their dishes and honestly, from what I’ve been able to try, I can’t wait for Pizza Express to open up here in the country! ❤

Hotel Review: ibis Central and Sheung Wan, Hong Kong

There are two ibis hotels in Hong Kong. One is located at North Point and the other is located at Central & Sheung Wan. Looking at various reviews, we opted to stay at the latter as though the North Point branch may be cheaper, the ibis in Central and Sheung Wan has rooms with a view overlooking the Victoria Harbour and for an affordable price too and that is what, more or less, sealed the deal for us.

The room we opted for was the Harbour View Room. It’s little, but as there were only two of us, we had more than ample amount of space to move around. Also!! Look at that pretty view. ❤

A Visit to Wong Tai Sin Temple, Hong Kong

Wong Tai Sin Temple, also known as Sik Sik Yuen Temple, is one of the places that we tend to go back to whenever we visit Hong Kong. It’s conveniently located, as it is only a few minutes walk from Wong Tain Sin MTR Station.

From the MTR, you will pass by these small stalls selling items such as keychains, charms, and joss sticks.

Snapshot: Central District, Hong Kong

One of the last remaining posts of my recently concluded trip to Hong Kong last December 2016. I’m hoping to come back soon, maybe this summer? Who knows, haha.

This isn’t exactly part of Central yet, as I took this photo in one of the alleys in Wan Chai – the alley was a flea market of sorts where clothes and other souvenirs were being sold for low prices.

Whenever one looks up in Hong Kong, you would always be greeted by the sight of tall buildings.

Before heading off to Central, we grabbed a quick bite at one of the small restaurants that line the streets of Wan Chai.

On our way to the Central-Mid-Levels escalator and walkway system, we passed by this building. I can’t remember what it’s called but according to my dad it’s actually a pretty famous building.

Snapshot: Causeway Bay, HK

Okay, so in the coming days my  posts will more or less be about my recent trip to Hong Kong last December 2016. Haha, I was planning to post them earlier, but I was quite busy last month and ended up neglecting them. Ah, anyway, better late than never!

For this post, I will be focusing on Causeway Bay. As we were staying at Wan Chai, Causeway Bay is just a stone’s throw away.

Nights at Causeway Bay. For me, must places to visit if you love buying clothes would be their huge Forever 21, H&M, Uniqlo outlets. If you love cosmetics or well, facial care products, there are also a lot of Sasa outlets that you can find in Causeway Bay.

We often just ride a tram going to Causeway – 5 minutes (or sometimes less than!) in and we’re already there. I love how convenient trams are, although during rush hour they can get really full.
