Lamma + HK + Throwbacks
▲ Photo Journal | ▲ Hong Kong, Lamma Island
I just went to Hong Kong in January 2014. So it never crossed my mind to go to Hong Kong again for my mid-year holiday trip. But! My Cathay Pacific flight to Taiwan allows me to have 1 free stopover at HK! Or rather, I just needed to top up only S$20 to visit HK, so I say why not! I was busy meeting people and settling work stuff in my trip earlier this year. So this time, I’ve decided to slow it down in HK (see the irony) and just walk around.
Just when I thought I know Hong Kong fairly well, I came to Lamma Island to stay for 2 nights at a friend’s place. And boy, I didn’t know busy Hong Kong has this side, a place to slow down.

▒ SUMMER IN HONG KONG ▒
◍ MUNCH ◍
What to do for a breakfast in HK? Dim Sum! Decided to try something new. So googled and got to know this particular dim sum place – ONE DIM SUM. But thing is, I forgot to check the opening hours, thinking that all dim sum places in HK open early in the morning. But ignorance is bliss, because when we reached at 9+am, way before their opening at 10am, there was already quite a queue!
The food was really quite nice! But I was thinking, was it good because got too hungry from the waiting?
In any case, you should try it!
Some award winning coconut milk drink.
Back to my favourite place for some milk pudding as afternoon tea!
YEE SHUN for the win!
We were actually searching for a wanton place at wellington. We tried the noodles at its The Peak branch and thought of having it again. But just right opposite the Wellington outlet, we saw an even more crowded wanton noodles place, Tsim Chai Kee Noodle 沾仔記 at 98 Wellington Street Central 中環威靈頓街98號地下. So the crowd pulled us over to try out the new place.
Worth a try!
For Mango Lovers. Awesome mango desserts.
◍ WALKING AROUND ◍
Was on a ferry from Tsim Sha Tsui to Lamma Island when we spotted this HONG KONG ICON – Junk Boat. I’ve been to Hong Kong for so many times, but this is my first time seeing it. I thought it’s a historical icon. To think it’s still around this day and age. Did a quick google and found that there are companies giving luxury junk boat tours – what an oxymoron.

Awesome mountain view from my friend’s place. *jealous*
Blessed us, to have the privilege to go on another tall building to have one of the best views in HK, even better than The Peak.
360 degrees walk to get bird’s view of HK and Kowloon islands, the HK convention centre, happy valley, etc.
