Our Quick HK Getaway Day 4

Brunch at Mcdo Hong Kong (Total spend: 150 hkd). Love ko talaga ‘to! And our day has officially started. We found that eating at non-peak hours saves us stress from getting vacant tables & chairs. Less people, less noise equals happier me.

Was hoping to get the limited Batman Burger halloween special, or the Black & White Burgers. Unfortunately, wala pareho. Boo!

But not before feeding our bag addiction. Bags before breakfast, that’s the GOppets girls motto, lol. After 3 back-breaking days of looking at various bags, Balenciaga still won out over many other brands.

Nagbunga din ang #cheapeats #cheapstay namin, Kap allowed each of us 1 big purchase -no questions asked. Hay, may deal or no deal pang kaganapan sa HK. Para hindi sya ma-highblood, he just closed his eyes, covered his ears & stayed in one corner so he wouldn’t see the price, or hear our convo hehe.

Wish granted, mission accomplished! After looking at a million & one bags in the course of 3 days, Balenciaga pa rin ang nagwagi. Ang bunga ng #cheapeats #cheapstays ni Kap hehe. Happy birthday girls!

A mommy bag – off white Classic Giant City in gold hardware, an Ate bag – black Classic Metallic Town in silver hardware, and a baby bag – dk. blue Classic Mini Giant City for the GOppets gals. <3

Walked around some more during the lunch peak hours to avoid the crowd. We found ourselves window shopping at the huge & pristine Harbour City Mall. Stretching for nearly a kilometer along the Kowloon waterfront, Harbour City not only boasts more than 400 shops and 50 restaurants but also two cinemas, three hotels, Hong Kong’s cruise terminal and a ferry terminal servicing Macau and China.

Ack. Fendi Fur Monster Charms!!! <3  Angry birds in winter coat. Lol! Day 4 has the MOST damage,  I swear.



So many cute stuff, so little money to spend huhu! </3



like this! Anyone care for a bit of cleaning? 🙃 #cleanandtext with this Moschino iPhone 6s case. Ang bigat, karga palang housework na!


Yung akala mo, suplada..

pero hindi naman pala! (slight) ;))

2pm was the perfect time to have lunch at Din Tai Fung in Silvercord Mall (right across Harbour City Mall. Total spend 680 hkd). Waiting time was shorter & the crowd more controlled. Din Tai Fung is coming to the Phils. but I thought it nice to try the homeland version muna for comparison.

Shop 306, 3/F, Silvercord, 30 Canton Rd., Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon Tel: (852) 2730 6928 Business hours: Mon-Sun 11:30 – 22:30



God has been so very good to us. So very good. <3 I really can’t ask for anything more except good health & long life for me & my loves.




When in Din Tai Fung, one MUST order their specialty, the Xiao Long Bao. And again, my order of crunchy kale, best dipped in oyster sauce. Yum!

One order each of sugar & spice, parang kami ni Kap. :P



Hahahahaha! Dat face doe. Sometimes, ignorance is bliss. KAP: AKALA KO BA MURA DITO???  Gulat si Kap. From our 150/250/350 meal budget, nag-doble! ;)) Minsan lang naman Honey ko. :-*

The rest of the afternoon was to be spent in Mongkok again. More walking, more shopping. So we split up because at this point, my feet felt like lead. The heart is willing, but the body has long since crashed. Suko na ako! My Lovey took pity on me & got me “home” while the 3 energizer bunnies kept going on.. and on.. and on!

Team Kap

How cute are the piggy egg custard buns? Ate brought some home for me, knowing my penchance for delicious piglets! ;P



Aba si Kap, may pahabola pa! The anti-shopping guy turns out to be the last man standing. Overload na nga kami, #buypamore pa sya!

Team Ms. Piggy

After a much needed nap, my Lovey & I pushed ourselves to go out & get some dinner. She’s had enough of duck rice, lol, so we had pizza & pasta at Carpaccio at the nearby iSquare Mall. Semi-fine dining for a change, walang budget-budget! :P



The dessert selection didn’t speak to us though, thankfully there was Haagen-Dazs on the ground floor so we hauled our weary a$$es & shuffled our way downstairs.

Ice cream & chocolate always makes EVERYTHING a whole lot better. <3


This served as our last night in HK. Will surely miss our UBE. Kahit na masusungit ang mga tao, kahit na sukdulan ng pangit ang tinirahan namin, kahit na mamatay-matay ako sa sobrang pagod at hapo, #DaBest parin itong ultimate bonding experience ng GOppets in HK. No phone calls to make, no work, together 24 hours/day. Ang sarap.

PS: And of course, not to be forgotten, the pasalubong! We heard that Jenny Bakery makes the best local cookies & candies for gifts. Must buy: Macadamia Cranberries Nougat Candy (L) 28 pcs/100 hkd.

    I miss HK! I always stay din sa TST. And I don’t really like bags, but if I’ll ever buy a designer bag it will be Balenciaga. :)

      Oo nga naghihiraman labg sila kaya bawal bumili ng same. Kadalasan kasi dahil super close sila pareho ng taste. So I force them to buy different things para sharing is caring ang drama! ;))

    Love the Balenciaga bags, Ms. Jane! Classic… At priceless ang mukha ni Kap nang makita ang bill sa Din Tai Fung. Hahaha! Kaya bumawi din po sya ng bili ng para sa kanya. :)

    Masusungit po ba talaga mga tao sa HK? Ang importante po nag enjoy buong family kahit naexercise kayo ng todo sa kalalakad. Hehehe.

    Harbour City! Yay!

    If you ever go on a trip to HK again, let me know, I’ll send you a list of nice places to eat and shop. Also if you have the opportunity to choose hotels, the Marco Polo in the middle of Harbour City is the best…direct access to the hotel!
