As promised, here is the second photo diary of my recent holiday to Hong Kong. This post documents some of my favourite places we visited during our stay.
The Flying Pan was a great discovery and a place we went to most mornings for breakfast. It not only has the biggest breakfast menu I’ve ever seen (eggs in hundreds of combinations) but serves the best meal of the day 24 hours, 7 days a week and is great value for money. I really miss their Eggs Florentine!
As a huge Peanuts comic strip fan (like my Mum) I particularly loved going to The Charlie Brown Cafe in Tsim Sha Tsui. That’s right, a cafe dedicated to Charlie Brown and Snoopy, incorporating them into every aspect of the decor, menu and food! I felt it was only appropriate to wear my Snoopy and Woodstock Zara dress that day.
The amount of shopping streets and shopping malls in Hong Kong is pretty overwhelming, even the most dedicated of shoppers like me will admit that it is impossible to visit them all, although I did try! The malls can be a bit difficult to navigate at times, often reaching upwards of 13 floors, you can walk for miles in one and still not find the way out. I lost count of the Chanel stores I spotted – I have never seen so many in one city! I made a special purchase in the Comme des Garçons store of something that I have been dreaming about for months and months… Their Comme des Garçons Play striped t-shirt. I can’t believe I finally own one! It’s the most perfect black and white striped t-shirt – the outfit possibilities with it are endless so look out for it in future posts.
Here’s the second batch of photos –
