Hong Kong & Macau 2014: Day 4 More Foodie Adventures Part 2

DAY 4 (CON’T)

Chatted with the massage shop lady boss for a short while as SM was finishing up the neck & shoulder portion of the massage while I only did sorely foot massage. Then we walked back towards Hillier St. for a quick bite @ Dim Sum Square.

For a small, slightly out of the way food place (check out my tripadvisor review here) …… Dim Sum Square does boast of a decent crowd of locals and even backpackers. Didn’t have to wait too long for a seat/table (shared). Only ordered 3 plates as we were still quite full from breakfast, but the dim sum was freshly made and cheap/value for money! Will definitely recommend this place to anyone intending to make a HK trip soon 🙂

Then back to the apartment for a short rest/siesta before heading out …… this time round to Lamma Island for a short hike, then seafood dinner!

The journey to Lamma Island involved taking a ferry from Central Pier (Pier 4). Pretty fast ferry ride – around 30 mins. We mentioned that living in Lamma Island is probably a good and cheap alternative for some since the ferry ride daily to Central is about 30 mins …… while at the same time, one gets to enjoy a slower pace of living amongst more natural surroundings. Didn’t bother too much about photo taking at the Central Pier itself as it was a repeat visit for me. So just used the portable wifi to catch up on twitter/whatsapp while waiting for the ferry to arrive 😛

Did manage to snap one precious shot on the ferry ride to Lamma. Gorgeous, clear blue sky and great weather (slightly warm though) to boot ……

We took the 350pm ferry, and reached Lamma around 420 to 430pm. Glad to see the clear blue sky …… which means no rain to create havoc on our walk/hike (although weather forecasts had predicted stormy weather throughout the duration of my trip) ……

Same as my previous trip back in year 2009, we took the common route by taking the ferry to Yung Shue Wan …… and starting the walk/hike from Yung Shue Wan Main Street.

Yung Shue Wan, also known as Banyan Tree Bay, is the Northern Village of Lamma Island. It is also the main town of Lamma Island where many cafes/restaurants, shops, and residences/houses are located. Not much pictures as we quickly walked through the street as our main target was to get to the end of the hike/walk at Sok Kwu Wan (Southern end of Lamma) by sunset (around 6 to 630pm). Did note however though that 4 years on, there has been a lot more development to what used to be a quiet, if slightly sleepy street as I now see a wider variety of cafes, organic food shops, bristo/higher end fine dining restaurants, and even art galleries and craft shops lining up the main street. Would probably have time for further exploration if we had reached Lamma earlier ……
