Think back! When’s the first time you flew? What plane was it?
For me, it was a Boeing 767-300 on Qantas. So yes, that was in my memory the oldest plane I took. So if it was still around, it’ll be…. 25 years old?
BUT… That’s nothing compared to this “First Air” Boeing 737-200 (yes, 737-200!!!) that is about 40 years old!
So, here we go! Upon entering the plane, there’s this slightly smoky smell.. Kinda like those very old carpet smell that you hits you walking into an old castle….
But ahh…. On these old planes, legroom is EXCELLENT! “Cattle class” in those days is nothing compared to now!
Anyone still remember the old “dial” and earphone plugs? Ahh… So nostalgic…..
And so yes! There I was, flying in the freezing artic circle in an ancient plane… Love the engines on this! Still fully aluminium covered and not painted at all….
I love every single detail on this plane! Proper taps! A soap tray! A “flick” call-button!
Really loved this old plane to every little detail! Oh, you can still fly it by the way! For you lucky folk in Canada, if you’re going up to the Northern Territories, don’t fly Air Canada! Choose your local Inuit-run airline, First Air! They serve a very nice proper pancakes breakfast too!
I love planes and air-travel. And I must say, this is THE BEST flight I’ve taken EVER!!!!
好，睇下餐牌先！My melody & Kuromi 究竟為大家準備了什麼好食的呢？
首先，來杯 Melody, Kuromi 特色咖啡！
食完主菜，當然要甜蜜一下！有 melody pancake, kuromi 多士！
Hong Kong + Afternoon Tea + Good view + Somewhere that allows booking + Good Value…. This is the question I was faced with when I tried to think of a good place for my friend’s birthday tea!
The answer? Sheraton in Tsim Sha Tsui!
What a spread! Not just the obligatory 3-tier high tea, but there’s 4 here! Perfect for a late lunch too! Mmm, and I like the silverware…
Now, for a close-up of each layer. At the bottom, you have the savouries…Love that char siu puff, here’s a good example of HK-western fusion, it doesn’t always go well, but here it does!
Skipping the “scone level”… Here’s the sweets! Mmm, 2 levels for the sweets, perfect for a sweet tooth like mine! That’s a rapsberry macaron…. Soooooooooo sweet! In a good way!
And here’s the rapsberry cake… Mmmm… Just a tinge of sourness which goes amazing with the sweet, at the right moisture but not being too mushy! Yum!
And oh yes, last but not least… A gorgeous view of the Victoria Harbour!
因爲，這裡有非常非常 棒 的紅豆冰！！！！！！！！！！！！
雖然看來好像包，實際上，這“包”其實是 “起司薯餅”！ Cheese croquette!
如果要找六合夜市最出名的食檔，應該是這間 “打冷” 啦！
I snapped this little shop by the roadside just on the eve of the Duanwu Festival (端午節).
And for Chinese, this festival staple food would of course be the Green Dumplings – 粽!
And you can just tell this this little shop is very serious about its dumplings! Look at that giant pot in the background!!!
And here it is, the finished “Green Dumplings”! Which are basically glutinous rice, filled with fatty meats (if done in the traditional, unhealthy way), wrapped in a fragrant leaf, and boiled! Rice + Pork fats! Mmmm…….
