A golden sunset while driving on the Golden Gate Bridge on our way back from Hog Island Oyster Farm on January 27, 2016.
Been awhile since I’ve posted a non-food-related slideshow pic; tonight’s is one taken from the Star Ferry on its way to TST. From left to right you can see the Convention Centre, the Bank of China Tower, Cheung Kong Centre, and the rest of the Central waterfront skyscrapers. As I’ve mentioned many times before, it’s incredible how small Hong Kong is.
Been on a phở rampage lately and can’t seem to get enough. Here’s a number 3 from Pho Hoa Lao. The difference between this and number 2? No beef balls. Of course, I must always pair this bowl with an iced Vietnamese drip coffee. Such pure pleasure.
Sunday evening in our old HK kitchen, before it was taken apart for move-out. It was a tiny but useful kitchen, and I dare say that it became efficient as well after we mastered how to prepare meals in it. We could have the oven, rice cooker, stovetop, and even the second rice cooker (from Granny) going at the same time. We could even do our laundry in it! (haha)
It’s nice to see these kinds of photos in the slideshow every now and then; reminds you of all the chapters you’ve gone through in life. Here, it’s Sunday night, winding down and getting ready for work the next day. Have a good week!
Been really liking the chicken noodles at Wing Wah Phở Gà lately – you can get a choice of bone-in or boneless chicken; the former is tastier but takes more effort, and the latter is appropriate for when you’re starving and just want to concentrate on eating – both are wonderful in their own right.
This bowl was from last weekend. It was a record-setting hot day, and the noodles went great with an iced coffee. Sweat it out!
A nice way to round out 2015: a VH 潮州米粉, and with chicken this time!
Christmas day late afternoon 潮州米粉, back to pork instead of chicken. Merry Christmas.
Had pizza tonight and decided to go with Sapporo Reserve. Came in a giant can that’s still smaller than the Budweiser I had in the summer. Brewed and canned by Sapporo Brewing Company in Guelph, Ontario, Canada.
Sapporo Reserve – 650 ml/22 fl.oz for ~$3.84
My first time going to Hong Kong alone, I took the first BART train that arrived and then transferred to an SFO train at Colma. It was an early flight to LAX where I would transfer once again, this time to a Trans-Pacific flight.
