- We allowed ourselves to sleep in after 2 days of early wakes. A 9th flr view of hotel Panorama, 8.30am. - First stop: Yung Kee's award-winning roast goose!!! Short walk from Central MTR exit D2.
It's not as big as you think.
Those who like century egg will enjoy this. The yolk is very soft and doesn't have that strong alkali taste.
Good thing we reach there early. In no time, the place was full. We actually wanted to order just the goose but we didn't want to look too cheapo, so we order another kai lan. Our fears were unfounded, for many locals also went there just to order a bowl of goose noodles.
Yung Kee Restaurant
32-40 Wellington Street, Central, Hong Kong. (852) 2522 1624.
After the meal, we started our (or should I say, wifey's) shopping. She found the H&M outlet along Queen's Road Central and spent over an hour at the 4-storey store. I spent about 30 minutes, not finding anything that I like, then headed to the entrance to wait for wifey.
Standing near H&M entrance waiting for wifey. Alarm sounded, security asked person for the H&M shopping bag to rescan. No sound. Ok pass.
I thought to myself: if the shopper were to steal, wouldn't she put in her own bag rather than the H&M shopping bags? Ok the security checked another shopper's own bag when alarmed sounded again, but only because she didn't have a H&M shopping bag. The H&M entrance has lots of ppl waiting for their loved ones to finish shopping in the 4-storey store. Can stand but guard said no sitting.
Wifey finally emerged victorious with a bag of buys. We proceed along Queen's Road Central. We chanced upon this little girl distributing leaflets to promote a children's boutique. She looked very pretty, so we asked for a photo snap.
Lots of Christmas deco for sale.
Our next stop, Mak's Noodles.
- Now at Mak's Noodles to try their wanton mee, so good that even Sunday Times mentioned in Mar 12 2000 - Waiting in line for Lucky Dessert, opposite World Trade Centre along Jaffe Road.
We were recommended to try Mango Grapefruit & Sago Sweet Soup 楊枝金露 and Durian Glutinous Rice Roll.
After the dessert, we headed to Hang Lung Centre, where there is a factory outlet of shoes. Then while thinking of what to eat for dinner, Angie suggested we go to Jiu Ji Beef Noodles at Gough Street, which is back to Sheung Wan MTR. Again, thanks to Google Maps, we figured a short cut through the lanes to get to our destination.
- We walked really far just to eat this beef noodles at 21 Gough St. And it's worth it.
- Shopped at the smallest Toys'R'us ever, but bought the biggest Transformers find: 7 Devastator mini figures!!! Got back hotel. Our legs can't take us any further. Maybe later we might go out for supper. - Waiting for our BBQ hotdog for supper. - Hotel Panorama got a great view & wind at 40th floor! Finally i'm feeling winter!
That ends our Day 3!
