December through Instagram

Hong Kong

Kanna took me to Texas Burger in Tin Hau and the food is amazing and such good value!

The portion of ribs were so meaty that I had enough for lunch the next day. We’d also recommend the Texas Burger, Buffalo Wings and the Tropical Forest Smoothie!

As I liked it so much and it’s a stop away from where we work, I took Sally and Hermina for a visit after work the following week and they enjoyed it too.

Half way through our meal, guess who happens to walk through the door?

Kanna’s back. Back again. Kanna’s back. She bought her boyfriend…

Ok, I’m gunna stop now.

The table next to us happened to be empty so we pulled them together and it was bloody awesome.

They also have great music at Texas Burger. So good that Sally tried to Shazam almost every song…

During the Christmas holidays, I took Sally to the Ten Thousand Buddhas Monastery in Sha Tin.

We later walked around Kowloon City, had a disappointing Thai dinner but made up for it with the delicious fro-yos from Smile Yoghurt and Dessert Bar.

I had my usual ‘Cone Cone’ which contains lychee pearls, rose compote, fizzy raspberry rocks (delicious) and an extra cone on top that’s filled with strawberry sorbet (the best part).

Sally enjoyed the ‘Cocoa Smile’ which had brownies, crunchy pearls, cranberry pudding and a crispy chocolate sauce.

On Christmas Eve, Kanna and I popped over to Cheung Chau Island and really lucked out with the beautiful weather!

Of course, our first stop was for giant fish-balls 😉

Loving the fact that we could be on the beach in just T-shirts and shorts in December!

As we loved the festive vibes in Amaroni’s during my birthday meal, Kanna, Hermina and I decided to have our Christmas meal there too!

Ry had been looking forward to the new Star Wars film for ages and we both absolutely loved it!

1a

1 – Ry’s mum sorted us out for advent calendars this year.

2 – Snuggled up under the covers with chocolate and The Office. #livingthedream

3 – We took our annual Instax to send to Ry’s parents for Christmas and we took one for ourselves too.

4 – Christmas dinner and a wild game of Scrabble at King’s Belly in Tai Po.

1b

1 – Love the views outside the cinema in Langham Place.

2 – Adore this teacup set.

3 – Wandering around the food stalls at the HK Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wanchai on Boxing Day.

1 – The brownie at Jamie Oliver’s looked much better than it tasted.

2 – Kanna treated me to a Christmas dessert (and a delicious fruit tea, out of shot).

3 – Cocktails and mocktails at Amaroni’s!

4 – Really fresh and delicious seafood at a hotpot buffet in Kowloon City on New Year’s Eve with Ry and Rico. This was my favourite New Year’s Eve in HK, very chilled out with great food and great company. Instead of having to shuffle through an unbelievably huge crowd or being around obnoxious people, we hopped in a taxi after dinner and did the countdown on our balcony.

HAPPY 2016! 😀

3

1 – My P3 class are crazy but I love them.

2 – Going a bit mad and sad because we were back to work by the 28th December and had to work New Year’s Day.

3 – Our bosses bought writing books with these covers for our students…

Wishing everyone a great weekend, what are you up to?
