The above are some of the common ones found at the 茶餐厅. Simple food though I feel they can be healthier. Hah. The coffee and tea aren’t like those back home. It feels almost like drinking carnation milk. :p No offence but really…
Our itinerary for today was to take a ferry to 长洲 (Chang Zhou island), one of the islands in HK. We were expecting sunny beaches, delicious seafood and some cafes for us to bum around. We could use the octopus card to take the ferry which is really awesome. No hassle in purchasing extra tickets. No queuing!
On the way, we came across this joint. I so wanted to purchase a cup of coffee since I didn’t feel that I had my caffeine fix in the morning but well, we did have to run for the ferry, in a way, so I had to give it a miss. The ferry ride took us about slightly more than hour, in total. Thankfully the waters wasn’t too choppy.
When we disembarked, we had a shock. The place was full of people! Who would have thought? It was a workday, after all. Hello!!! The sun was really harsh that day but explore, we did!
Apart from the crowd, it’s quite fun exploring 长洲. You won’t get to see swanky buildings or upmarket shopping malls. It’s a village life here. Slow, simple and relaxing. Since I didn’t bring the stroller along (thankfully, I didn’t due to the crowd), I put Faith in the carrier which she was okay with it (she didn’t need to walk!).
For the past few days, Faith had the opportunity to use various modes of public transportation and some being her first attempt – bus and MTR. #firstworldproblem. She was obviously intrigued by them so I guess this trip did her some good in terms of such exposure.
On our way back, we decided to pack roast goose (my first time) home for dinner. But oh, what a lot of oil! I don’t think my stomach would allow more of them though!
