Grill Thai Skewer Takeaway @ Lan Kwai Fong, Hong Kong

By : Chha

There is this one shop at Lan Kwai Fong that really attract me to try out their food. It is name as Grill ขุนทอง, well to make it easier to name this we call it the Grill Thai Skewer Takeaway.


This shop is only selling takeaway food, there is no tables or chairs for customer to dine in.


It is actually selling Thai BBQ type of food. There are Chicken, Chicken Wings, Beef, Pork, Prawn and Fish Cake.



Their service here is fast, even though there are a lot of people lining up to order. We need to make our order, pay then wait for our number to be called.

Chicken HKD 15.00

Pork HKD 15.00

The Pork and Chicken is really tasty, the meat is juicy. The size is not that big, so to me, i feel that a stick of this skewer is expensive when it cost HKD 15.00. Being located at a place like Lan Kwai Fong with a lot of pub and bars, this shop is making it a perfect place to grab a quick bite after a hungry night out.

Getting There :

If you know how to get to Lan Kwai Fong, it is easy to find this shop. It is located along D'Aguilar Street. If not, then follow this direction below.
  • Take MTR to Central Station Exit D2
  • Once Exit D2, turn right and walk to Theatre Lane

Sea View Congee Shop @ Mongkok, Hong Kong

By : Chha

For some of you who are as confuse as i am, haha, congee actually means porridge. Some of the congee here are tasty, thats what i heard, so i went on and tried the one at Sea View Congee Shop which is located at Mongkok, Hong Kong.


Their service here is really fast, food serving is fast too, typical Hong Kong food serving speed but what is good about this place is, their waitress is a little bit more patience with us and is willing to explain what each items in their menu means. Thumbs up for them.

Tea (Hot : HKD 17.00, Cold : HKD 19.00)

It is like a norm for Hong Kong people to be served with a cup of hot tea, the moment you sat down in a restaurant. Even if you are not served with a cup of hot tea, you can easily get it as they will place cups and tea at a common area where their customer can have their hot tea.


Sea View Congee Shop is small but if well renovated, look clean and classy with air conditioning. Menu are available in English language too.


Century Egg And Boatman's Congee HKD 27.00
(Century Egg, Minced Beef, Stripped Pig Skin)

Barbecue Pork Ricesheet Roll HKD 20.00

Ham And Egg Sandwiches HKD 20.00


Food here is tasty, i like the congee very much and the ricesheet roll is special, very different from what we have here in Malaysia. Sea View Congee Shop at Mongkok, Hong Kong is worth a try.

Getting There :
  • Sea View Congee Shop is just a few minutes walk away from Mongkok MTR Station.
  • Exit at Mongkok Station D2 then turn left.
  • Walk straight until the second junction.
  • Turn left at the second junction.
  • Walk for about 50 meters, Sea View Congee Shop is on your right.
  • Cross the road.

That view is also what makes The Peak one of the most popular attractions in Hong Kong. By day your eyes stretch across sparkling skyscrapers and Victoria Harbour all the way to the green hills of the New Territories.

Lan Kwai Fong is one of Hong Kong’s most popular nightlife hot spots and home to over 90 restaurants and bars.

Being the already famous street for nightlife, the Halloween celebration there this year is making Lan Kwai Fong Street even more crowded with peoples.



Lan Kwai Fong usually hosts carnivals and other celebrations during major festivals, such as Halloween, Christmas and New Year and has its own beer festival. It is really awesome for me to be able to experience this during my visit.





People here are dressed up in costume and i can even spot Spiderman hanging around Lan Kwai Fong Street, haha !


It is not only Adult and Kids who are here celebrating Halloween, but the Dogs are here toooo ! haha, The Super Dog is here to save the town, haha ! It was really awesome, the celebration here.

[8D7N] Day 2 - Madame Tussauds Wax Museum & The Peak Tower @ Victoria Peak, Hong Kong

By : Chha

Basically today our plan is to visit Madame Tussauds Wax Museum and The Peak Tower at Victoria Peak, Hong Kong so we have plenty of time to burn. Being the free and easy trip that we plan it would be, we basically spend the whole morning walking around Hong Kong city, blending into the locals, hahaha ! We take around half day visiting places that interest us. We had our breakfast at Sea View Congee Shop (海景粥店), Mongkok. After breakfast we head straight to our first stop.

Golden Bauhinia Square

The bauhinia is the emblem of Hong Kong. The Forever Blooming Bauhinia Sculpture that gives the Expo Promenade the commonly used name, Golden Bauhinia Square, was a gift from the Central Government to mark the 1997 Handover, an occasion that held tremendous significance for the world’s largest nation and that stands out as a landmark event in 20th century history.

Today the site is hugely popular with Chinese visitors who come to take photos of the Reunification Monument, which bears inscriptions of the calligraphy of President Jiang Zemin who represented China at the Handover Ceremony and to enjoy the pomp and symbolism of the daily Flag-raising Ceremony with beautiful Victoria Harbour as a backdrop.






Flag-raising Ceremony
  • Daily except the first of each month
  • Time : 7.50 am - 8.03 am
  • This ceremony is performed by Hong Kong police officers in ceremonial uniform and includes the playing of the national anthem.
 The ceremony will be conducted by different uniformed youth groups on the second Sunday of each month.
Enhanced Flag-raising Ceremony
  • On the first day of every month
  • Time : 7.45 am - 8.13 am
  • This ceremony includes a flag raising party of Hong Kong police officers accompanied by a rifle unit both wearing full uniform. The ceremony will include the playing of the national anthem by the Police Band followed by a 10-minute musical performance by the Police Pipe Band.
Getting There :
  • Take MTR to Wan Chai Station Exit A1.
  • Walk along the footbridge and follow the sign board.
  • There is sign board along the footbridge
  • You will pass through the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
  • The Golden Bauhinia Square is after the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.
If you walk further into The Golden Bauhinia Square, you will come to the river side overlooking the Victoria Harbour.



After visiting The Golden Bauhinia Square we decided to have a long and slow walk all the way to Statue Square (皇后像廣場). Along our way walking there, we come across construction area, parks and lots lots of buildings, haha !



It seems to be a good idea at first but then we realize, it wasn't ! haha, so if you plan to go over to Statue Square from The Golden Bauhinia Square, use the MTR, don't walk, it is very far .. !

Statue Square (皇后像廣場)

Statue Square is a public pedestrian square in Central, Hong Kong. Built entirely on reclaimed land at the end of the 19th century. Statue Square consists of two parts separated by Chater Road into a northern and a southern sections. It is bordered by Connaught Road Central in the north and by Des Voeux Road Central in the south.

Status Of Sir Thomas Jackson



There is actually nothing much to see here at Statue Square but if you have time to spare, then you can come here to have a look or go shopping at their high class shopping mall, haha !

Getting There :
  • Take MTR to Central and Exit J1.
  • Walk straight for about 100 meters.
  • Statue Square is on your left.
I only spend like few minutes taking photo at Statue Square then i walk across the main Des Voeux Road to The Landmark Shopping Mall. Inside the shopping mall is where i had my very light lunch at Urban Bakery Works.

Urban Bakery Works



Urban Bakery Works is a hip and urbane cafe inspired by London's Borough market, it is a lab and playground where Urban bakers & chefs experiment their creativity to produce edible works of art in different formats. Urban Bakery Works staggers menus ranging from breakfast to lunch, tea time and even happy hours bringing food to life using variety of different kind of fun, sexy, innovative and health foods that customers who appreciates life in Central, Hong Kong look forward to not only refuel but also to socialize with friends.




Food and environment here is really nice. I like their Lava Cheese Croissant which cost HKD 22.00 and Ball Law Molten Egg Yolk Custard Croissant which also cost HKD 22.00.



The Croissant is really tasty in every bite ! From the crunchy outer layer to the filling inside the Croissant, 2 thumbs up ! Really must try .. !

The Man Mo Temple is a picturesque tribute to the God of Literature (Man) and the God of War (Mo) both of whom were worshipped by ambitious students looking to succeed in the civil examinations of Imperial China. These involved rigorous systems aimed at finding the best administrative officials for the state.



Built in 1847, this remains the largest Man Mo temple in Hong Kong. To pause for a moment’s respite under its giant hanging incense coils makes for a pleasant contrast with the hectic pace of the nearby financial district.

Madame Tussauds Wax Museum Ticket





Andy Lau wax figurine is the most special here in Madame Tussauds Wax Museum. It has it own heart beat, hahaha ! Put your hand at his chest and you can feel Andy Lau heart beat, haha !




You can also take photo with The United States of America's 44th President Barack Obama. I am thinking, just thinking .. will they have the 45th President wax figurine here too ?












For me, i feel that Madame Tussauds Wax Museum is worth visiting. All the wax figurine here look so real. It does freak me out awhile when i first look at them, it is so real as if they are alive !




There is also a section where they show you how the wax figurine is made, which is kinda awesome for me as i never exactly know how it is made.



I spend around 2 hours here taking picture and visiting Madame Tussauds Wax Museum.
