    Great to hear that Yung Kee has improved their service – my first experience with them was so bad i swore never to go back again

    – haughty looking waitress hovering around waiting for us to finish, without a smile
    – another waitress running after japanese man who left his wife at the table to go to the washroom, and saying loudly “Money! money! pay money!” 0_o

    I go to shatin for my goose fix now. heard that “deep water well” (i dont know how to type it in cantonese phonetics) has pretty good pigeons too

    Hi! thanks for the add!

    Yeah HK people in their offices seems to be very friendly (well from the HK dramas i’ve seen anyway :P)

    The menu at Yung Kee looks really pretty 🙂

    The HK office looks great fun, albeit hard work! All that shopping would be overwhelming!

    Heh, that egg looks eeevil! But tasty?

      Fortunately we have the shopping and hanging out to look forward to heh.

      The egg’s not that tasty, like a normal egg. But it has more of a jelly texture, it’s more the colour that’s so strange!

    Yung Kee

    You’re right. The food is good but not spectacular. Oh well, I’ll probably still eat there this weekend.

    I’m flying to HK tom, I can’t wait! Hope you get to eat at more restaurants 😀

      Re: Yung Kee

      It’s still worth it ‘cos it’s so central and the food’s still good!

      HK is AWESOME right now.. so many massive sales it’s crazy!

    I love HK, and your office environment sounds like exactly one of the reasons I’d love to work there in the future!

    Very very true about Yung Kee, it’s pricier and nothing extraordinary since HK is just SPECTACULAR all round for their food but I’m definitely not saying no to a great Goose just around from Central! It’s just too easy! Our friends in HK told us off insisting we go out to the suburbs where it’s better and cheaper but we figure it’s too much time taken up when travelling. Glad you liked the goose though!

      I keep doing this, having additional afterthoughts! BUT, I love that your HK desk has a touch of Tiffany powder blue (it actually looks like a dust bag..it isn’t though right?) even though it doesn’t look like you’ve gotten to decorating it much.

        I’d still go to Yung Kee if friends want to go, because it’s good, just didn’t blow me away! And yeah, too lazy to go travelling to the suburbs instead 😉

        Ohh that’s a scarf not a dustbag! 🙂 I need some pink there now.. hehe

    Mmmm pickled ginger root (next to the black “century year old egg”). The egg is actually pretty good drizzled with soy sauce and seasme oil. Try it! It’s better eaten with rice porridge. It’s a duck egg that I grew up eating as a child. Mmmm still love it. Don’t let the name fool you. It’s just changed colors/texture b/c of the process they do to make them. It sits in clay, ash, salt, lime and rice mixture for serveral weeks or months. We eat ours with the same soy sauce/seasme oil drizzle over super soft tofu. Now I’m craving it. Nuts!

      D’oh, I had the egg plain and it was fairly tasteless and a bit weird. You’re right, I bet it tastes much better with the sauce and oil!
