Delta Hostel Hongkong

Let's admit that often times we just feel like staying in a hostel where we can securely leave our luggage bags & sleep over place if you're on a hectic full day tour itinerary especially here in Hong Kong where in we usually go back to hotel, motel or hostel for a good 7 hours sleep to make it up for another day of tour once more. 

Don't you just love the idea that everything we need can be simple done online even booking of hotels & travel needs with just a click of a button. I prefer using Agoda for accomodation necessities and Expedia to check the latest travel deals. During my recent trip to Hong Kong, I decided to try a back packers kind of travel style so I opted to book a hostel, a decent one which I based to customer reviews.

Upon arrival at the hostel, it wasn't the best as what I expected but having someone in the front desk to accommodate us was a big yes for me. The hostel has not much of that fancy excellent service that you'll expect in some five start hotels but if you wanna stay in inexpensive accommodations so you can spend it on good food and the sights then this hostel will be a great place to stay in Hong Kong.

Rice Empire Macau

No restaurant takes notion of "rice cuisine" as seriously as Rice Empire located at Sans Cotai Central making it as the perfect location for a lunch or dinner hour for a perfect & relaxing meal. I'm fully satisfied with their wide selections on Asian & Cantonese cuisine wherein menu offerings will range from rice, noodle, dumplings, meat, congee, cold fish & desserts too.

I had the Fried Rice with Minced Beef & Kimchi which was a good choice since I'm a Korean food lover. The rice quality was superb & really compliments well with its chili paste & minced beef. Their dumplings are a must try, so authentic & fresh it feels like it melts in your mouth with all the flavours infused inside. Since I don't eat pork I wasn't able to have a taste of their braised pork belly but my friends told me it was undoubtedly the best braised pork he had so far. The braised beef noodle, having the delicious smell from the broth, creating flavours that was put into one bowl is the kind of delicious that stops conversation.

Address: 1/F, Casino Floor, Sands Cotai Central, Cotai Strip, Coloane- Taipa
Opening Hours: 11:00 - 23:00 Mon- Sun

Breakfast in Hongkong

One of the best breakfast will be in Hong Kong where you will always have the best noodles & tea options for a great day kick start. Let me give you an idea on how to get the best breakfast in Hong Kong for budget friendly but not sacrificing the food quality. 

Hong Kong has their hawker food centre version of Singapore they call as Dai Pai Dongs (Hong Kong Street Food). Usually it has no name & frequently move locations but there are some best areas to find some good quality breakfast to experience city's unique experience. 

Some of the best known places to visit will be Graham Street, Temple Street, Haiphong Street, Hau Fook Street & Causeway Bay. Most of breakfast offerings in Hong Kong will be the wide varieties of noodles from dry to noodles soup. You can also choose sandwiches or rice meals of your preference. I will recommend dumpling or beef brisket noodle soup. Instead of having your usual morning cup of coffee, you can also go for iced milk tea or red bean milk drink to counteract the hot noodle soup.

Ocean Park Hongkong

If you think Disneyland is the only happiest place in Hong Kong, well guess what? Ocean Park has something to let you experience before deciding which is which.  Iv'e finally got the chance to experience Ocean Park with my recent vacation in Hong Kong and was amazed on how this place was able to fully integrate theme park, awesome rides, endangered animal shows all into one gigantic park.

I love how it feels to be in a place wherein 360 degrees view will totally fulfill your visual appetite. No wonder how this place can be do crowded during peak season & definitely a tourist spot you should't miss out in Hong Kong.

Agnes B. Cafe Hongkong

I finally experienced some Agnes love in Hong Kong when I curiously tried this cafe while walking along Nathan Road. If you feel of having some French grab-and-go gourmet and drinks then this cafe is something you'll love. If you're looking for a relaxing atmosphere from the hustle & bustle of Hong Kong life, then drop by Agnes B. Cafe as they also have several outlets around the City.

Another exciting photo diary to share with everyone for my Instagram April & May 2014 blog post. Since I was on hiatus mode in Instagram last April, I decided to post both months combined for this photo diary post. Given the hectic schedule I was able to have some short yet awesome travel escapades in Malaysia & even quick beach getaway in Tanjong Beach Club. There were also random birthday celebrations, night out tripping & dine in situations to catch up with my food blog posts. This period was also another personally challenging stage in my life which I believe is but part of everyone's life growing out of a new stage of maturity. Well I hope you enjoy this blog post guys.

Kowloon Park Hongkong

In case you need a peaceful place or maybe a quick jog before starting off a day tour while in Hong Kong, then Kowloon Park is a place to visit. Looking at the lush greens while walking around this park, you'll definitely appreciate how this place could relax your mind that you even want to read a book while seating in one of the bench having a cup of coffee here.

What's good about this little paradise is that you wouldn't expect having this place in the city of Hong Kong wherein most sceneries will be the concrete skyscrapers & busy streets of Nathan Road. No wonder why it is one of the most popular attraction in Hong Kong. It is easy to reach in approximately 30 minutes from the Star Ferry & alongNathan Road to the park entrance. You can spend as pleasant afternoon in the park listening to street musicians. If you have time you can visit this place & you will be surprised at the history of the area. Within the park there are swimming pools, aviary, tranquil lakes & fountains just behind Nathan Road. Nearest MTR stations are Jordan & Tuan Sha Tsui.

Macau 2014

It's nice to be back in Macau again since I first visited this place back in 2012. Whenever you visit Hong Kong since it's just a ferry ride away, you shouldn't miss the Las Vegas of Asia. This place is definitely a bucket list for everyone as Macau offers nothing but the best of entertainment & ultimate travel experience from night life to their must see tourist spot like Venetian Macau & Ruins of St. Paul's 

I made a day tour in Macau on a Saturday & will share with you my travel photo diary and will share some tips on must see & eat in Macau. From Hong KOng, you have to take a ferry ride at Hong Kong Central Ferry Terminal (ferry price range 120- 200 HKD). We took the Cotai Water Jet for a 45 min ride to Taipa Ferry Terminal & went straight ahead to Holiday Inn Macau to meet a friend working there. We spent an hour strolling around Holiday Inn, Sands & Sheraton Hotel.

We had some authentic Chinese noodles for late lunch (food price range75-150 HKD) & afterwards we spent the rest of the day taking some touristy photo shoots inside the ever stunning Venetian Macau interior. I never got tired looking around the busy crowd panic shopping, burning cash in casinos & enjoying the man made cloud view & the famous boat ride in the Venetian. We also went outside to catch the night scene of Macau & I was still captivated by the view overlooking Hard Rock, City of Dreams & Crown Hotel with its amazing night scenery.

You don't have to worry about transportation here in Macau as most of hotels here offer free shuttle ride . Going inside the hotels, casinos & malls requires no specific requirements or entrance fee so you can go everywhere you want. Even though we wanted to go more places but due to time limitations, we weren't able to visit other famous tourist spot like Macau Tower & Macau Museums & famous churches. The cost of living in Macau is similar with Hong Kong so if you're planning for a day tour here, a pocket money of $300 SGD or Php 10,000 will be enough.

March 2014 was another highlight of my blogging life as I managed to go back home for a short vacation to Philippines after my adventure trip to Dubai last month. I had the chance to visit Puerto Galera Beach for a short summer vacation with my family & had some good staycation at 71 Gramercy during our stay in Manila. My food hunt also continued as I explored more of the best food haven in Singapore & remaining of my Instagram posts were highlighting my travel escapade to Abu Dhabi & Dubai. So here's my March photo diary via my Instagram account. Keep on following me guys. =)

Murphys Irish Pub Hongkong

 The nightlife experience in Hong Kong will always be the highlight of anyone's trip as  they have the best of pubs, rest bar & disco house in Asia. Since I'm feeling old enough for some bar hopping trip, I've decided to check out on some nearby pubs along Nathan Road near the hostel I stayed. Located at the basement of Imperial Hotel, PJ Murphy's Irish Pub & Restaurant is a must- try in Hong Kong.

If you like an Irish style laid-back feel while having the widest selection of drinks, then this is the place to be. I remembered when I visited Dubai & happened to visit the Irish Pubs there, this place have the same ambience as I imagined it would be better to drink here with your friends enjoying some bottles of beers . I had the famous Screaming Orgasm which is a popular party shot made of vodka, amaretto, coffee, and Irish cream liquor.

Alcoholic drink prices will range form $75- $150 HKD. Most of their patrons will definitely expat & that night there were only few people around so we were served & assisted well by the staff over there. Luckily, both are also Filipinos and we had some little talks about their life in Hong Kong as Overseas Filipino workers. So grab a bottle of your choice & have some unforgettable night only at PJ Murphy's Irish Pub & Restaurant.

Victoria Peak Hongkong

It was such an unforgettable experience to reach the ultimate peak experience at Hongkong's famous The Peak by the Peak Tram. It is one of the world's oldest & most popular railways reaching up to 1,300 feet above sea level. Upon reaching the peak, you will enjoy the stunning 360 degrees panoramic view of Hong Kong. You have to also try the Sky Terrace 428 standing at 428 meters above sea level where you can have the best scenic spot of Hong Kong. You will definitely love this trip so it should be part of any travel itinerary of you will be visiting the Treasure City.

The Peak Tram Sky Pass ticket will be $80 HKD and the Peak Tram ticket will be $40 HKD. But I will recommend to have the Sky Pass for its worth your money once you see the picturesque view of Hong Kong. The best time to go here will be around 3-4PM so that you can watch the beautiful sunrise & experience the breathtaking night view of the city. 

The Peak Tower offers various souvenir shops & some great dining experience. You can also bring your own water & snack in case you'll get hungry as it requires an energetic body to stroll around The Peak area. Since it's summer time, expect a lot of sweaty moments so be sure to wear something appropriately. The Peak Tram is open form 7AM- 12MN & the Sky Terrace is open from 10AM - 11PM except for Saturday / Sunday & PH (8AM - 11PM).

Yuen Kee Restaurant Hongkong

 You will never have enough of Hong Kong's vast culinary cuisines from local food delicacies to popular Chinese must-try foodies. You know the feeling of finding a good place to eat after a whole day of tour around the city, that's where we found out this local food haven along TST area in Hong Kong. We were walking along the Avenue of Stars and out feet brought us here to have a good dinner experience.

This was my first time to try this beef brisket & it also tastes so good in noodle soup. A must try will be their dumplings as well with rich meaty fillings & crunchy touch served with mayonnaise. Also the noodles here in Hong Kong comes in various types & cooking methods of your preference that is worth trying as all looks so relish. Finally have a try of their local drinks aside from the famous Milo Dinosaur & Iced Lemon Tea. It was a gastronomical experience having the local food of Hong Kong & you should have a taste of it too.

The total amount we paid for two pax was around $250 HKD, quite expensive but their servings will be almost good for 3 persons. The service will be not that excellent but having the experience of dining in this local food restaurant in Hong Kong was worth the experience.
