Victoria Peak, HK

This mountain is the highest point in HK island,
*at 552m*
a must go whenever u r in HK.

Also known as The Peak
and in cantonese - Tai Ping San Deng

Exclusive residential area for the rich and super rich,
our very own Robert Kuok has one *wink wink*.
it was restricted to the governors & europeans back to the British days.
*Now it's more like who got $$$$$$$$$$$$$*
waiting for the tram to arrive,
it was built in 1888.

*I lost count of how many times I've been up there!!!!*
a bunch of tourists!!!!!
so are we!!!!!
the view of HK island, Victoria Harbour & Tsim Sha Tsui,
weather had been gloomy for the past few days,
with low temperature hovering around 13-18 degrees.
*this morning it was 10!!!!*
So wat do u do when u are up there????
Make a toast!!!!!
and dine with a stunning view
*my bones were rattling with the window beside me......~~~~~too high!!!*

This restaurant is on the Level 2 & 3 of Peak tower,
designed by architect Brancko Pahor,
very dramatic design
*sorry, forgot to snap pics*
with a 3,000 bottle wine cellar.
Prince C & I-Ching
yep, managed to convinced this super fussy pair to come to HK,
just bcoz they had bad experience with hongkies *like 10 years ago*
doesn't mean the whole HK behave that way.

In the end,
who extended his stay for a couple of more days?????

On another note,
At KLIA when we were checking in,
Prince C proudly showed me his A. Lange & Sohne in platinum...

"See my watch!!!! World time u know!!!!"

-_- x 1,000,000

before I can insult him......he proclaimed:
"HK same time like msia rite???? WTF!!!!"

we started off with a crispy pigeon - HK style.
super yum.
and as usual JS didn't touch anything on the plate.
fresh har kow
this restaurant makes its dim sum as u order them.
my fav pork bun!!!!
my face looked like one oso rite??
crab meat xiao long bao
turnip cake
glutinous parcels
when u open it, TA-DA!!!
u can get this in Marriot Hotel, KL.
but of coz.....HK has the best dim sum.
to die for!!!
Chee Cheong Fun with sliced beef and enoki mushroom
u pour your sauce as u makan, so u don't soak the poor dim sum!!!

they have other choices like
char siew, prawns, pork etc
definitely can't get in msia.
Har mai chee cheong fun,
the skin is super crispy and crunchy on the outer layer...
soft and smooth and thin on the inside....
super YUM!!!
and comes with XO sauce.
Mango pudding with bird nest.
Hongkie consume bird nests like how msian eat their agar-agar.

everything everywhere got bird nest,
from tau fu fah to pudding to porridge.
JS & Monkey on the peak of HK.
We went out for a long walk to burn all the calories.
modeling for brands....why pay money to advertise??

JS in his leather E. Zegna and Prince C in his camouflage Hugo Boss.
and Prince C is such a freak for Evisu jeans...
-_- it's only jeans...
at that price I can buy 10 CK jeans

I dun care of it's evisu or suvie or visue
as long as it fits my butt with me looking hawt...
BUY IT!!!!

PS: Calvin Klein jeans was having 40% sales in HK...double yipeeeee
Monkey & I-Ching in Escada

Yes she is another fashion freak,
no wonder they make the most perfect pair...
Evisu + Escada = Evida

Escada was having a private sale for a-hem, VIP ppl in HK
*namely the super filthy rich*
I-Ching was so disappointed as she walked by the boutique
every morning....
coz their private sale is really really super private.
They actually closed the 3 storey boutique for these ....important pigs..I mean ppl.
walk to the other side of The Peak and u'll see the other side of the island!!!
it's freaking cold with me under dressed
beautiful flowers everywhere,
if this was will remain on its pot for 2 hours
before somebody will carry them home,
well Malaysia mar....
since it was so cold,
we went back inside to shop,

There are restaurants, Madame Tussauds, shopping gallery, Ripley believe It Or Not and lots of things in The Peak Tower which is currently run by Peninsula HK.
Yes next time when I am filthy rich and an important pig *I mean ppl*...
I'll try to stay at Peninsula.

details of our scrump-dilly-umptious lunch:
Tien Yi Fine Dining Chinese Restaurant
Level 2 & 3,
The Peak Tower,
Victoria's Peak, HK.
Tel: +852 2907 3888

Highly recommended for the view and beautiful dim sum.
