And so after a crazy Day 1, we embarked on Day 2! Love the signs in the MTR (did I say that already?).
Woke up at about 9am and started watching this TV show we watched a little the previous night after we got back. Chinese period drama, 步步惊心. It's really good! We (yes, even Eunice) finished all 35 episodes after we got back. Haha. It's really highly addictive. Even managed to get some friends to start watching. =D
|Front of the hotel!|
Woke up at about 8.30-9am and ordered room service!!! First time we ever had room service anywhere LOL. Because it's always so expensive. We ordered only one set because we just needed to line our stomachs till we met Kar's friend for dimsum at about 11.30am.
Oh and we totally didn't want to wake up. Legs were majorly aching!!!
And thus we head out!
Met up with Kar's friend, Nakayo, and walked to the restaurant! I don't think I've ever walked so much in SG. Only when I'm overseas. That time in Japan, we walked tons too. It just isn't as interesting to walk in SG as compared to overseas.

Don't worry, we didn't eat any shark's fins. The whole aim was dim sum. =D CAN I SAY THAT I LOVED EVERY ITEM WE ORDERED?!?!
|Pu Erh tea; Fried Chang Fen in XO sauce; BEST BBQ PORK EVER; DAMN GOOD ROAST PORK|
And the BBQ PORK!!! I'm drooling now. I want to go back to Hong Kong NOW!!! Totally melts in your mouth kind of experience. I love this kind, not the gross artificially coloured kind they sell in SG.
The roast pork was so awesommeeee. The top was so crispy and the meat so soft. *drools*
|Custard bun!!!; inside the bun!!; Siew Mai; Har Gow|

So after the extremely filling meal (not to mention we ate earlier. Omg weight gain!), we walked from Wan Chai to Causeway Bay....
Next up, finally reaching Causeway Bay.
|Times Square; Kar's friend Nakayo + Kar; Us in the washroom|
|I wore slippers that day.|
After walking around Times Square for abit, we decided to explore the area and tried to search for the cat cafe, Ah Meow Cafe. Got sidetracked and went to Muji and Uniqlo, and actually spotted the cafe opposite!!! Hahaha. Actually thought it would be difficult to find... Anyway......
|Took an old school lift!!!|
And on to the cat cafe!!!
|Outside the cafe; menu; Cappucino; Member's card|

And so......... since we were at Causeway Bay, we went to find our way to The Peak Tram!!! *walk walk walk* Crazy uphill walk. Lol.

|From Wan Chai to Jordan|
|Ice Cream Van; Temple Street; Jordan to Yau Ma Tei|
Reached Yau Ma Tei (approx. 1km if you walk straight from Jordan along Nathan Rd, but we went along Temple Street and took many turns), so we took one stop to Mong Kok. Also, we were trying to catch the shuttle bus back to the hotel.
The hotel has a free shuttle bus service, but the problem was, we didn't know the exact location it was going to drop off/pick up people at, just that it's along that street. And we had no idea what the bus looked like. So we were going to risk it, or walk from Mong Kok back to the hotel, which was another 1km+.
AND WE HAVE NOT HAD OUR DINNER YET!!!
|Roast Pigeon!; Noodles; Custard buns.|
|Original Adidas Jacket for him; Mario Cap; Shorts; Envelope Clutch|
