We got there around 3pm and I guess it was time for tea break as there were a long queue. The egg tarts we bought are still oven hot and it tasted so delicious. It is delicious from the outside to the inside filling.

When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies
with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The
area widely known as Central is the major financial
hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up
to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open
late into the night and there just happens to be a
street party every weekend. Although everything seems
to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
