rkkwan to Hong Kong

I'm heading to Hong Kong this Sunday, for about 8 days. Going the usual route - Continental IAH-EWR-HKG. Taking my usual seat - 44L.

First time to do this flight this time of the year with long daylight. Will have pictures that are different from last fall.

I have family matter to deal with, but will try to eat at Yellow Door that Tim_and_Liz recommend.

Also will try to make it to the Museum of Arts. I actually have never been inside. But I've read about a feature exhibition of Sir Charter's collection there, so I really want to take a look.


Will of course check out the new Star Ferry on HK side.

If any of you are in town and want to treat me to a meal, please let me know!

I haven't been to Cheung Chau for many years, so that's on the table too.

Hope you get to Yellow Door! Be sure to have the dumplings and the pork in chili soup.

rkkwan: Have a great trip! Like the others, I am looking forward to your TR on your return!

One of the abiding memories of Hong Kong for me is the Museum of Tea Ware where I bought some Yixing tea ware. I'm told that the Museum's pieces are the genuine thing. The Museum itself is a calm gem, an oasis, set in HK Park amidst all the hustle and bustle of downtown HK.

Bon voyage!

I've only been to the Museum of Tea Ware once, when it first opened. Years before there was a Hong Kong Park. I didn't appreciate the exhibit back then, but I was 20 years younger.

If I have time, I'll give it another shot.

Yellow Door credit belongs to Cicerone and her great restaurant list!

Oh, I am so sorry... Gosh, I get confused so easily.

First, thanks Cicerone for recommending Yellow Door. Will report back if I do eat there.

Second, somehow, I thought Elisabeth_S is just half of Tim_and_Liz, and just posting with two different screen names. I guess because I've seen both in a few threads. Sorry. The report I actually read with Elisabeth_S' on their LizandRichard blog.

Two Lizes, but different persons. Now I get it.
