Mong Kok Food Diaries : Ocio Dessert

MK FOOD DIARIES: Dessert @ Ocio Shop 5, G/F, Tsui Yuen Mansion, Phase2, 2-20 Kwong Wa Street ,Mong Kok 旺角廣華街2-20號翠園大廈二期地下5號鋪 https://www.facebook.com/OCIOKITCHEN It was very hard for me to find a good dessert place in Hong Kong, I just grew accustomed to eating the hot fudge sundae and calling that “dessert”. Thanks to Sham’s friend, we were introduced to Ocio! Lucky for me, it’s close to my hostel so we made sure to visit it another time before I left.  On the outside, it looks quite plain and small but inside it was so cozy and homey! Everytime we went, there were these two men working and their service was quite good. Our water cups were always full and they were more than happy to explain the menu to us! I liked them so much that I followed them on Instagram and now on Facebook (where I got the first picture from).  I really wanted to take Jane here for our last meal together, but decided on something else at the last minute. Ocio also carries …

Tomai’s first day in Hong Kong {Causeway Bay}

So, Tomai came all the way from Taiwan to visit me in Hong Kong! She arrived yesterday (Friday) and is staying here until Monday morning. Of course, I’ll return the love by visiting her in Taiwan on the 10th of October… so be sure to check back for more pictures! I decided to take her to Causeway bay in the morning to go shopping….  Here she is, taking photos from the rooftop “Sky Track.” Causeway Bay – Jardine’s Crescent (Street Market) If you go to Causeway bay and exit F, then you can visit tons of shops. I love the Forever 21 there because it has big sizes (Sorry, I’m not an XS). Tomai wanted to go shopping and since she can fit into the sizes here, I took her to the street market – although it’s not as large as the Ladies Market she was able to buy a shirt. To get there, just walk Right when you see Forever 21 and go to the left hand side and you should see the Market.

Ying’s Blossom Dessert Review

Ying’s Blossom Dessert  G/F, 21 Woosung Street, Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon I was really lucky to find this place; especially since I’ve been craving sweets but haven’t had a chance to really go to a dessert place. After wandering around YMT with my friend, we stumbled upon this gem and flipped through the menu. Surprisingly, it was very inexpensive so we decided to eat here. Of course, I’m a huge fan of Chocolate Lava cake so I got that, while my friend got shaved snow. Our bill altogether was about 70 HKD so we were both very happy. There are other choices such as some jelly desserts that were under 30 HKD. Service was also very fast and very friendly; the place was also pretty crowded. I really can’t wait to go back! (Looks bigger in real life… Both of us couldn’t finish it)

Easy DIY Summer Popsicles!

Back again with a SUPER EASY TUTORIAL on how to make these summer popsicles! Thanks to Pintrest for helping me find the recipe, but you can basically make this with anything you want: others use Greek Yogurt and Strawberries, etc etc. I honestly didn’t think these would turn out so yummy, but my cousin already ate two! I only made four also… >.>” I bought these popsicle molders for only a dollar at Ikea! I actually bought them about 6 months ago and on a whim decided to make these little treats since it was seriously so hot in my house. After looking around the Kitchen, I found them hidden underneath a pack of baking supplies.  Depending on what you use as the filling, this could be an easy, quick and healthy treat for your kids. Maybe you could use freshly made orange juice instead of the ones filled with sugar. What you need: 1. Orange Juice 2. Strawberries 3. Popsicle Molders   How to Make it: 1. Cut up strawberries 2. Pour Orange Juice into the mold 3. Put …
