Wan Chai Wandering – Winter Trip 2007

On the second day in town Ann had to go in for a half day at work. For a minute I thought about sleeping until 1pm when she got off. But then I got hungry, so I went out for a beef sandwich and noodles. Afterwards I hopped on the ferry to Central and walked to Admiralty and Wan Chai. Wan Chai isn’t as interesting in the day when all the debauchery-based places are closed. Admiralty has some tall buildings and not much else. So I took the MTR back to Tsim Sha Tsui to meet Ann.

I met Ann at 1 and we grabbed lunch at a place called Sweet Dynasty in Tsim Sha Tsui. It’s famous for it’s desserts and have chains in Japan and probably elsewhere. Every seat around us was filled with Japanese people. A lot were probably Japanese Hong Kong residents but most were probably tourists, as every Japanese tourist guide recommends it.

After lunch we took a ferry to Central and did some shopping, walked around, saw a movie, then came back to Kowloon. We met Ann’s friends for a late dinner at Chao Inn at the apm mall in Millennium City. It’s a Chiu Chow style restaurant that’s a sister restaurant to the one in One Peking Road in Tsim Sha Tsui I like so much. We had salty fish congee, this oyster-egg pizza like thing, some chicken deal, some fish thingys, and some pork platter.
