Colourful stalls…….
Then off to lunch… while trying hard to find Lang Heung Noodles.. stopped by this stall for gai dan zhai, a stick of siew mai (more of like fish ball siew mai) and drinks…. it’s so hard to find, it took us an hour and hell of  a sore feet to locate the noodle shop! I was halfway giving up and said why not we go to Cafe the Coral instead… but Branda was more keen in killing more cows that day… :P
Finally we found it!! it’s just a little humble shop but is claimed to be one of Andy Lau and Sam Hui’s favourite….
Ordered the signature Blanced Beef Tripe with I’m not sure what it’s all that with noodles.. it’s my first time eating moo moo’s spare parts… and also the soft pork done soup with koay teow…  like i said in the previous post.. their pork somehow taste a lil bit different… then kailan with oyster sauce.. the serving came big enough to  feed a family of 5! and perhaps the long search actually made me kinda lost my appetite… we could not finish it.. :Pstanley-8
Then off to Central via MTR, to take bus form the Exchange Terminus to Stanley…
stanley-7Get to finally relax my feet for a while enjoying the view… the bus ride passes Ocean Park which I went last visit and Repulse Bay…. That’s the famous building with a hole… it is said that hole the building allows the mountain dragons to drink from the bay on the other side.. it’s a feng shui thingy… There’s a Kuan Yin(Kwun Yam) and Tin Hau statues at the eastern end of the beach but we did not stop by….
Went directly to Stanley market! with lots goodies and good bargains… a lot of artsy stuffs there too… and a number of art gallery…
Behind the market to the promenade….
Many people on a Sunday afternoon, with friends, family and man’s best friend… their doggies!

times square-3 Head to Causeway Bay, Times Square… to find nothing interesting there wor :P
times square-4Many people there though… there’s a lot of shops outside Times Square too.. but it’s still not as packed as Mongkok…
tram-2 Took a ride on the tram to Central station.. so we can make it on time back to Tsim Sha Tsui at 8pm to view the Symphony of Lights…symphony of lights-2
The wind was strong, with cold breeze….brrrr.. shivering… but nice!! Did not take much photos of this cos I’ve taken more than enough the last round… :P
and more moo moo spare parts noodles for dinner… that bee hive looking thingy is the stomach i think… people usually eat “ngau lam” noodles, that’s the one on the top left…. mixture of spare parts..  i remember my counterpart told me during my last visit and meet up with her, that  “ngau thou” the bee hive looking thingy taste better… so I ordered dried ngau thou noodles… not bad not bad… this shop if I'm not mistaken is along Cameron Road.. i think la.. or somewhere nearby… can’t remember the name but i can remember how to go :D

Coming up Hong Kong Revisited DAY 3 (2010-0118).. with lotsa celebrities.. hahaha
