441. Hong Kong | Mongkok, Temple Street, Dinner with Family

Mongkok Hong Kong
This was either our first or second day in Hong Kong. My aunt, uncle, my mom and I went to Mongkok. I was on a mission to find the Daft Punk Bearbricks. We came to this boutique called Naughty Guy which was filled to the brim with hundreds of Bearbricks. Unfortunately the Daft Punk ones were sold out..but they put me on the waiting list. I probably would've been back in Toronto by the time it was in stock again though. Then we walked around a bit and found another toy boutique with Bearbricks.I saw a huge Daft Punk box behind the counter and got extremely excited. So I bought them immediately!

Carrying around the huge box all day in such a busy area was kind of a hassle (thanks to my uncle who helped), and bringing it back on the flight also took a bit of effort..not to mention the credit card damage..but it was definitely worth it lol.

Middle Eastern restaurant
After walking around all day, we met up with all my other Hong Kong family members and went to this Middle Eastern restaurant that my sister recommended. I don't know the name but the food was really really good.

Hoegaarden
My mom & I shared a Hoegaarden

Hong Kong taxis
After dinner we walked around. My favourite time in Hong Kong is (late) at night. The streets are never empty.

Temple Street Hong Kong
We went to Temple Street. One of those night markets where a lot of foreigners/tourists go.

Hong Kong desserts
Then we stopped for desserts. It's like a tradition to go out for late night dessert (usually black sesame soup) while in Hong Kong. As I'm sitting here making this post and thinking back on that night..it's making me really crave this. I don't know if it looks disgusting for those of you who haven't had this before or know what it is lol. But it's a really popular Chinese dessert and sooo good.
