w e d n e s d a y... whee!

Half-term holidays are here again.  I look forward to these... whether we stay in Hong Kong or sneak away.  It's always a time when we can go about our days with no activities scheduled. We could choose to bake, stay up late(r), try a new recipe, go out and explore places in Hong Kong that we'd never been to, check out a new restaurant, go for a joy ride on the MTR and hop out at new stations, go for things that we normally cannot do on regular school days... or just chill at home.  

Singwa - Wed, 4 Oct 2017

So far, we've checked out a new dimsum place (meh!), had a go at making our first no-bake cheesecake (yay!) and played Power Grid.  

Yesterday, we had planned on checking out this place famous for its beef brisket noodles.  We ran a few errands first before making our way there; stopped by for bubble tea along the way (but of course!).  We got there before 12:30 pm, --when it was supposed to open, --and already there was a looooooooonnnnnnggggg queue down the entire street.  It might be all the tourists in town over China's "golden week" (where they have the entire week off to celebrate National Day).

We decided to go back some other time and instead headed down to a Michelin-starred place that I'd been meaning to check out.  Jackpot!  We got there before the lunch crowd and got a booth. The food was great and J declared it fantastic.  By the time we finished, the line for the people waiting stretched all the way up the stairs (the restaurant is in a basement) and down the street!  

Today, I'm planning to take the kids to one of my favorite Thai restaurants for the best green curry ever.  Are you beginning to see a trend here...? We love to eat!

sounds like you are planning a great school holiday time. Our kids are half way through their's here. Back to school next week. Bubble tea? I'm intrigued. Tell us, or show us, more! The cheesecake looks delicious, and as for green curry chicken - it's my favourite! Have fun!

Sounds like so many fun things being done. When I worked and kids were young, those were the best days when no definite plans or activities. Eating is always on the list when I go out someplace with my sisters. Enjoy the rest of the holiday..and what is bubble tea?
