Hong Kong Day 2 (Part 1) - HKSGI, One Dim Sum 一點心, Sham Shui Po

Started the day well cos the temperature was slightly warmer, and the sky was not so cloudy!

My new bracelet from Macau ;) 
It's actually a hair band but i thought it looks nicer on the wrist hehe.

Went to have breakfast at a traditional HK cha chan teng downstairs. 
It's opposite Dim Dim Sum :)

As the menu was in traditional chinese characters, we tried asking the waiter/owner about certain items.
However, he replied in Cantonese that meant something like "If you don't understand what it means, then don't order that. Just order something you understand mah.. blah blah blah"
Gosh. Hahaha.
Thankfully he was still smiley when saying that, so I just "muted" out his voice and hurriedly order those which we understood!

Coffee and tea which wouldn't go wrong.

Made our way to the SGI kaikan after breakfast.
I always believe that our first stop overseas should be the kaikan if possible. Starts off the trip well! :)

Took the MTR to Prince Edward station.

Made our way to One Dim Sum which was nearby the kaikan.
One of Hong Kong Michelin-starred dim sum eateries!

Thankfully there's the queue number system!
Went souvenir shopping around the area while we wait.

Next we proceeded to Sham Shui Po after hearing from my friend that there're alot of things to shop over there! 
Think cheap & wholesale clothings.
Was ready to spend all my monies there, BUT......But sadly, I didn't find anything :(:(
Not a single clothing buy la. 
The clothing wasn't to my liking somehow. Mainly long sleeves, "knit wear", baggy tops. Saw a few workdresses, but iirc, they cost about S$69 each for wholesale of 10 pieces. Faints..

Bought many stuff at the electronics area though.
Mobile phone cables, earphones, portable charger etc. Cheap and good!
My 3metre iPhone lightning cable cost only HKD25 / S$4! :D
Samsung 2metre cables were going for only HKD15 / S$2.50. Bought many different colours for my whole family lol.

Had traditional tau huay :O
We were originally attracted to the stall because of the crowd/queue initially, keke.
M said we must be kiasu Singaporeans and go check out the stall as well LOL.

Overall, Sham Shui Po was pretty boring to us, so we went back to the apartment to rest after that.


To be continued in Part 2 :D
