My small and dusty nest

12 01 2008

With the arrival of my TV, my home is now almost complete! (Almost, because there are sooo many more decorative items I want to get, but am reluctant to because I don’t know how long my stay here actually will be)

Some pics of the place:

Living room (very small, apartments here are tiny)
















TV console – couldn’t resist getting the Samsung TV, it’s sooo pretty! Love the table clock too, it’s from a place called Homeless, it stocks lovely home accessories and I have a hard time controlling myself each time I visit …!










Bedroom – where Ms. Lazybones gets her sleep
















Bedroom – the computer corner
















Bedroom 2 – cum wardrobe cum storeroom. How in the world did I manage to amass so much stuff in just a few months? o.O
















I don’t know whether it’s just my area, but the place gets dusty really quickly! I give the floors a wipe at least twice a week and give the place a good cleaning every weekend, and that’s barely enough to keep the place livable. Fine, black dust is now the bane of my life. I think I should just seal off the house and leave the air-con on 24/7. Arrggh!!


Entertainment at last!

Worry about you

4 01 2008

I love this song. Unfortunately, WordPress doesn’t support Imeem, but found a workaround  🙂

Bye bye baby.
Don’t be long.
I’ll worry about you while you’re gone.

Bye bye baby.
Don’t be long.
I’ll worry about you while you’re gone.

I’ll think of you in my dreams.
You’ll never know just what you mean to me…..
….to me.

I’ll think of you night and day.
I’ll never know just what you meant to say….
….to say.

The Uncle Kel Food Trail

2 01 2008

The S.O. had a good time living it up in HK for the past week. He looks a bit rounder than a week ago 😛 Anyone want to verify? Hehehe …

 Presenting … The Uncle Kel Food Trail (a.k.a. all the yummy stuff we gorged on)

(Sorry that I don’t have any pics, we were too busy eating to take any :P)

Shake ‘Em Buns

Huge, juicy burgers made fresh in front of you. We ordered 2 burgers (Missionary, Red on the Neck) and 2 sides (Spicy Onion Rings, Juicy Poppers) – totally stuffed after that! Can check out review from other folks here and some yummy pics here. S.O. thought that the burgers and rings were great but he preferred the Jalapeno poppers from Botak Jones because B.J. uses mozzarella while Shake ‘Em Buns uses cheddar.

Kau Kee Restaurant

Arguably the best beef brisket noodles I’ve ever tasted! Surprisingly, their drinks are good too. S.O. loved their clear beef brisket flat noodles and milk/lemon tea, he wanted to go again to try their curry beef brisket, but unfortunately the place closes on Sundays and holidays so didn’t get the chance.

Apparently, even Tony Leung eats there!

Mak’s Noodle

Juicy wontons, piping hot soup, perfectly cooked noodles … ahhh, bliss! We had to queue to get into the store, and then share a table in a cramped corner (lucky the other occupants left soon thereafer), but we both felt the experience was worth it! S.O. had the beef brisket and wonton noodles, he isn’t a prawn lover but he enjoyed the wontons, and we both liked that the noodles didn’t have any “powdery and alkali” taste. Be warned that portions are small and the noodles aren’t exactly cheap though! (Just under SG$7 a bowl)

Tai Cheong Bakery

Egg tarts straight from the hot plate! Burned my tongue while scarfing it down, but worth it!

Lucky Dessert

Heavenly durian pudding and mango glutinous roll. We could smell the durian from outside the store and rushed straight in. Needless to say, the house smelled of durian the whole of the next morning. This place was recommended by one of Kel’s friends, links to English and Chinese review.

Jenny Bakery 

Cookies that simply melt in your mouth. Our favourite was the coffee non-nut cookie. I shall buy some back for CNY!


Vietnamese/Thai restaurant at IFC. We had dinner here before heading to the airport because of the convenient location (Airport Express trains leave from Hong Kong Station, which is below IFC)

Had the spicy beef salad, soft shell crab rolls, grilled pork neck and pho bo. The food was good, portions reasonable, and lovely ambience. On hindsight, I guess it was an appropriate location for a “farewell” dinner!

Other notable eats during his stay: fried instant noodles with pork neck, dry fried beef hor fun, seafood at Shek O … the list goes on and on! Friends, visit HK and I’ll make sure you guys go back full and happy 🙂

On a side note, I so want to try the places listed in this article! Time to find fellow foodies in HK … 🙂
