Dim sum time - Hong Kong, China

Today we went to the Sik Sik Yuen Wong Tai Sin Temple. It was fun to compare it to the other temples we had seen on our trip. Afterwards, we had dim sum at Luk Yu Tea House. It was delicious. Highlights were definitely the roasted pork buns and dumplings. After stuffing our faces, we took a ride on the Central Escalator, the world's longest covered outdoor elevated escalators. We just kept going and going and going. Finally we made it to the top. I wasn't feeling well so I went back to the hotel for a couple of hours and Lizzy spent the day wandering and shopping.

We met up that evening and had some not so good Thai food. It was actually quite gross. We just wanted to chill that evening so we headed to the giant grocery store in the mall attached to out hotel and bought lots of yummy snacks. We bought yummy cookies, fruit, and Movenpick strawberry ice cream. Our next stop was to a store equivalent to Best Buy to buy a movie to watch. We ended up buying No Reservations and Dan in Real Life. We watched both of them as we enjoyed our night time view of Hong Kong from our hotel room. What a great night!!

  1. Now I would be interested in the covered escalator ride. You could get to the top of a mountain without every having to leave the ground.
