HK VI Day 2: Cordis Breakfast, Tim Ho Wan & Australian Dairy

After a good night's sleep, we headed to the Club Lounge for our breakfast. So hungry!

A table just nice for 4

After breakfast, we headed to IFC mall (nearest MTR station is Central Station) to eat the famous Tim Ho Wan. I knew from experience during our previous trip that queuing at the IFC outlet was the best as it is located indoors, which meant that we would not have to queue in the sun (other locations of Tim Ho Wan worldwide here).

Restaurant packed with people

We queued for about 45 minutes before we were ushered to our tiny table.

Next, it was off to Harbour City to do some shopping! We took the MTR to Tsim Sha Tsui Station before finding our way by GPS.

Following the signs to Harbour City

Harbour City was a super huge mall (reminded me of Vivocity) but even though we walked from one end to the other, we didn't buy anything (it so happened that there weren't many sales going on). It was nice to window-shop, even though I was really disappointed that we didn't buy anything.

After all the walking, we started to get hungry so we headed to the famous Australia Dairy Company, which is only 5 minutes walk from Jordan Station.

By luck, we managed to cut the queue after queuing for only 10 minutes because they happened to have a 4-person seating.

The menu
Their trademark milk

We Googled and most people recommended that we try the milk, milk pudding and scrambled eggs. And that was what we tried.

Right: Our milk pudding
(On hindsight, egg milk pudding is better)
We were seated horizontally along the table
(most people share a table here)
Decided that I must try their sandwich and scramble eggs since it was so highly recommended.
Taste good but not worth queuing for.

We were so full that we decided to walk back to our hotel instead of taking the MTR (since our hotel was only one stop away).

Shopping at Jordan/ Mongkok

That turned out to be a right decision because we stumbled across a few shops where we bought some cool home ware and cheap snacks (Rittersport chocolate cost less than $2! It was fun and a really good workout =)

We actually wanted to go to Sai Kung seafood restaurants and Stanley Market but they are simply too far away. Plus, the hubby wants to make use of the Cordis Club Lounge facilities so we ended up spending the rest of the day chilling in the pool and fellowshipping at the Club Lounge. It wasn't exactly exciting but we enjoyed the quality time we spent together =)
