Day 4 Holiday In Hong Kong, In July 2014

Day 4, the last day of my holiday in Hong Kong. This day is mainly a shopping day.

As usual, I woke up early for breakfast at Barista Jam at Sheung Wan.

And walked along Caine Road towards the Cathedral of Immaculate Conception; went in, took a few shots, walked around and came out. It was a beautiful cathedral.

Moving on, I went to Goods of Desire, selected a blouse for my mom and passed by the shop I that I bought a bag for my brother. This shop lianca has pretty nice colourful bags. I went into the shop at my first visit as I was attracted by the colours and some of the design of the bags. The quality was fine and at a reasonable pricing.

As I have never taken the Star Ferry, I decided to head for Central Pier direction. I passed by IFC; went in to enjoy the air-conditioning and then once again head towards Pier 7.

Next, I went to Hoover Cake Shop by MTR and got home a box of 6 egg tarts. It was said to be better than Tai Cheong Bakery’s. Hover Cake Shop’s egg tart has flaky pastry instead of the shotcrust type.

Then I took a bus to Mongkok and went to Kee Tsui, for the first time to get some of my mom’s favourite Glutinous Rice Cake. I read some where about Kee Tsui having the best Glutinous Rice Cake.

Next, I went to Meng Hwa to get more Glutinous Rice Cake. Just to compare which is better.

I got back to the hotel and collect my luggage and hailed a taxi with the help of the hotel staff and to the airport I go.

As usual, I was early. I went to a free charger counter to charge-up my mobile phone and then went to the check-in counter for a check-in. Right after, I went into the immigration area and decided to have a light dinner. I ordered a Rice roll wrapped with Fried Dough and a Ice Milk Tea. It supposed to come with pearl and I actually wanted less, and as they were inflexible, they didn’t allow. There were only option with or without pearl. So out of no choice, as don’t have my choice, I opted for without pearl.

After I am done with my dinner, I walked around and saw the beautiful sun set. I knew I got to be fast, otherwise the beautiful scene will be gone soon. Indeed, within minutes the “yolk” was gone.

I explore a little more and found this cute little “brown bear”, check in out and found that it was a foldable travel pillow. It could be kept into this cute little bear.

When it was time to board the plane, I went to the gate and after flying for about 3.5 hours, home sweet home.
