Buying my friend and my cousin a lunch. My friend suggested Munch, I said why not try another one. Then we went to 798 where I’ve enjoyed semi-buffet lunch before. As we arrived there, we saw that it’s no longer servingsemi-buffet lunch but instead a $98 all-you-can-eat lunch. There’re altogether, maybe, 40 dishes including appetizers, main dish (mini size) and desserts. There’re more desserts on menu than the other two though. The miniature main dishes allowed us to try out most of the dishes on menu. Desserts were particularly good and we all ended up REALLY full. The only complaint is that food don’t always come as we’ve ordered. But we didn’t care much about that. It’s an “all-you-can-eat" anyway.

又去台灣?

人人都這麼問。為什麼不去台灣呢?台灣夠近,機票夠便宜,物價也不算高,這樣才可以豪華遊,要不然怎付擔得來?五天台灣遊,三晚留台北,一晚留台中清境,每晚住宿要接近五百元一晚(每人),結果是兩隻懶精都覺得可以再住這兩間酒店/民宿:

上一次遊台北時住了福華,也是五星級的,不過比較之下,The Landis(亞都麗緻)實在好太多:房間比較雅緻,浴室設備較好,很好睡的床(福華的床睡得我周身骨痛!)。我們到達酒店時,房間還未預備好,於是一名類似經理的男士提出請我們喝咖啡,我們才驚覺原來已是三點,就此享用了一杯免費咖啡。後來還看到以下一堆相片之後(怱忙中有些拍得不清不楚…),簡直覺得每人花五百元一晚的價錢住The Landis,實在是"抵"啊!

至於台中清境雲頂山莊,五百元住一晚,實在是"hea"得很,卻又舒適得很!位於1800米的山上,實在是避暑勝地,雖然山上沒什麼好吃的,晚餐吃了個火鍋,材料不怎麼樣,不過那不是避暑的重點,重點是:真的涼快多了!由於位處高山之上,早午晚的景色都不同,基本上是早上看得很清,下午三時已如在仙境,霧大得很,到晚上就是什麼都看不到。又由於位處高山之上,可以看到很多在平地看不到的事物,例如從平地帶上山的水會自然變成有氣泡的,又例如位處海拔1743米的7-11裏的薯片,每包都是脹脹的,就算是杯裝薯條,都是脹脹的…還有一堆棉羊和一個不怎麼樣的棉羊秀,主持人格蘭先生的爛gag真的很爛!而要去看棉羊秀,兩隻懶精做了一件不懶的事:爬了487級樓梯!其實有接駁公車的,不過兩隻懶精忽然想健康一點,多做運動,結果是我回到香港跑山上學生的家時,感覺輕鬆了!

今次實在是兩隻懶精無無聊聊想去旅行(又有人要在合約完前把假期放完啦),於是無無聊聊之下去了台灣,貪其不用想行程,又可以付擔得起去貫徹"可以用錢解決的問題不是問題"的精神,於是在吃方面,兩隻懶精今次可謂一點要求也沒有,吃得最多又最開心的,是7-11的關東煮 – 一樣在香港從來不會吃的食物!全程吃得最像樣的,是一餐在高記吃的晚餐,和一餐在酒店房間內享受的早餐(對!兩隻懶精懶到叫room service… 貪可以多睡一會,兼可以慢吞吞兼不顧儀態地吃):

旅行一定有shopping list,今次的shopping list上,只有四個地方一地要到:郭元益、台北音樂家書房、台北車站附近的久大文具店、台北車站附近的晶華眼鏡。到郭元益買XX酥,價錢便宜(NT13/pc),還有我和媽媽都愛吃的鳳蛋酥(NT22/pc);台北音樂家書房,地方比中國音樂書房寬敞,書也比較多,今次買了很多唱歌用的,買到可以做會員(大家會去台灣又要買音樂書的話,記得來找我!);久大文具店是上一次走錯路時無意間發現的,今次再去,因為實在太太太便宜!香港賣超過20元一支的Pilot Frixion 可擦掉水筆,久大只賣NT39(即港幣不到10元),會員價更只是NT35,還有大量替換筆芯,只售NT22,會員價又再便宜一點,至於做會員,只需付NT50會員費即可;晶華眼鏡…那是表妹朋友的介紹,眼鏡比香港便宜,而且兩天便可以取回,快捷廉宜!

手信實在太普通,所以沒拍照,反而拍了些無聊的照片:

就這樣,我的超無聊豪華台灣遊就完滿結束了!回想當年搭night train遊歐洲,睡在車廂裏的三層床,好不快活,要不就是睡在最多只有一粒星都沒有的小旅館,也是高興得很的。今天要再這樣旅遊,我可能寧願留在家裏睡覺算了… 又如果要跟旅行團,然後每天早上七時morning call,我還是留在家裏睡覺好了… 真的是年紀大啦! XD

下一次旅遊目標:歐洲!不過,要豪華歐洲遊,要好努力的儲錢才行呀!如果不去歐洲,可能再去日本好了,日本很多地方還未去過,不過…豪華遊日本,也是$$$$$呀!

When Crocs first came out, I really, really hated it. It’s SO ugly. Plus… I have slim feet. The original crocs just don’t fit.

And finally Crocs’ got some “normal" design like about an year ago but I was still skeptical about the whole thing of wearing “plastic" shoes. Why on earth would I wanna spend several hundred HK dollars on a pair of plastic shoes?

Then, one day, my extremely picky (on shoes only) friend wore a pair of Crocs to church and told me that they were extremely comfortable.

Oh, really?

That was a rainy day and eventually I bought a pair of Crocs Olivia. I’ve already written on that.

After weeks of wearing that pair of Olivia, I must admit that they really worth the HKD2xx I paid. Extremely comfortable – in fact, the most comfy shoes in house now.  Btw, they don’t make feet smell. So, I guess Crocs is true about their material – it’s really not plastic, not rubber. They call it Croslite – a close cell resin (what is that?! I such in chemistry…)

A couple weeks ago, there was rumor that Crocs was filing bankruptcy and I thought, “oh! Then I should go get another pair of “normal" looking Crocs before they extinct!" Though Crocs soon clarified it, the thought of getting a second pair of Crocs never went away.

And so today, I went to Crocs with a friend who got a pair of pirate crocs. She had talked about getting a pair of genuine one for some time already. We went there and we both found our desired pair of Crocs but that would make HK$6xx only. 20% discount is offered if one buys over HK$800 on one bill. We were thinking maybe we could buy a pair for another friend and let her change the shoes next week if they wouldn’t fit. Suddenly a father came up to us from behind and asked, “are you two both buying a pair of crocs? Do you mind getting my pair of crocs (it’s for his daughter) into the bill as well and we all may enjoy 20% off?"

“Oh, that would be great! We don’t mind it at all!"

And so… I bought my second pair of Crocs, Lily LJ Plaid, with 20% off at HK$262.4.

I wouldn’t be surprised at all if this is on Apple Daily or Next Magazine. But Mingpao photo caption? What the heck are they thinking in the editorial room?
Ok, I understand that this is on 副刊, and this is about exclusive bargain offers. I can stand that “超抵買" expression in the text but that caption just… erk, “令面"!
Crap! Don’t they know the word “反光"?
When Mingpao insists using words like 無綫 instead of 無線, 着 instead of 著,how on earth did they come up with 令面! 我還反面呢!
