One of the best things I love about Hong Kong is their herbal drinks. There's a variety of them sold almost everywhere you go.
Am actually blogging this from our rented apartment in Jordan (thank God for the high speed wifi) so this is definitely a first for me - blogging on the go, that is.
I got a fever two days before I got on the plane to HK and I was so worried I would literally freak out in the plane for the 4 hours of flight. Thankfully Ho Yan Hor saved me and i actually was quite OK for travel except that my throat was sore.
It's my 2nd day in HK and I decided that I had to drink something to cool down my heaty body.
This brand of herbal drinks is easy to find at MTR stations across HK. At HK$24 it's not exactly cheap but it is great for people like me.
This one is made of lotus leaf, winter melon and coix seeds and i had mine warm. It clears heat and relieves summer heat.
All i want is to have my throat back to normal again so i can taste all the yummy food here in HK!
Despite the sore throat I still managed to visit my uni mate whom I haven't seen for 16 years at the APC Mall in Kwun Tong today. We had some dessert from Honeymoon Dessert, apparently a super famous dessert chain in HK. I went for the papaya and white fungus dessert hoping that i could cool my body down.
And after that off I went to the largest Taoist temple in HK - Wong Tai Sin. It was supposed to be unbearably warm in HK now but today the weather was kind. It rained just before so the temple jaunt was pleasant and cool.
Wong Tai Sin is famous for granting wishes and many people visit this temple for this reason. The other attraction is the rows of fortune tellers who will tell your fortune for a fee.
