I’m BACCCCKKK! Did you miss me? It’s so surreal to be back. My vacation in Hong Kong was very fast-paced and there was lots to do each day. Our biggest worry was where/when we were going to eat lunch. It was the best two weeks this year, by far! I feel so rested and refreshed – like getting 100 massages! But massages for my mind, body and spirit. If you’re on the fence about taking a vacation, I’d say, “GO FOR IT!” Your day-in and day-out routine will thank you for it!
While in Hong Kong, I stopped by Shanghai Street in Mongkok which sold commercial kitchen equipment. This street was like Sesame Street to me – I just want to live there. All the tools and equipment or “toys” as I like to call it, were a fraction of the price if I were to buy it here. I found a store called, “I *HEART* CAKE” and I stayed in there for a good hour. It was STOCKED with cookie cutters, fondant, food colouring, gumpaste tools, cutesy packaging and everything in between! The only bad thing about the store was that it was super small and packed with people and I’m a claustrophobic at heart.
I won’t say anything else… I’ll let the pictures do the talking
See what I mean?
I bought about $50cdn worth of toys and they filled up two reuseable bags. I had a “FUN” time carrying them home in the cab! Each cookie cutter was 50c, each cutesy character cutter was $2… and all Wilton tools were re-packaged and sold at 1/10th of its North American price. Just thinking about my shopping experience and the goods I brought home makes me heart beat faster.
Stay tuned… more to come!
