[HK Dec 2009] Finally, last day in HK eats!

We skipped the hotel's complimentary breakfast and opt for a dim sum feast in the Chinese restaurant downstairs.

All this food for only HKD 12x!! Bargain.

After breakfast, it was time to check out. We hopped on a taxi originally intended to go to HK station but the driver said he would take us all the way to the airport for HKD200.

Mmm, it was cheaper than going on the express so we agreed. The fare turned out to be HKD26x. So I suppose, you can actually bargain with the taxi driver but proceed with caution, you might get screamed at, some Hongkongers are not the friendliest people on earth............

A friend caught a taxi frm HK island to Kowloon and the driver yelled at her to get off the car and stop wasting his time after she paid.........*speechless*.

At the airport, we were met with a flight delay until 8pm *die*. The airline compensated with a meal voucher each.

Lunch at Hang Hiong utilising the voucher (not a lot of f&b establishments accept the voucher *vomit blood*)

Xiao Long @HK Airport
Xiao long bao (forgetable, filling dry but tasted alright)

Dumplings@HK airport
Black sesame dumplings (below par, skin hard and thick with little filling)

We also bought some famous 'wife cakes', they were truly good. Sadly the same can't be said of their food.

After lunch, we hopped on a bus and went to the nearest outlet. Bleh, total waste of time.

Dinner was Cafe de Coral roast duck at the airport, which was, surprisingly good.
