Hong Kong food

I absolutely LOVE Cantonese food, so I had a great time eating in Hong Kong.  The best part is that most of the food I want to eat is SUPER cheap!

Wonton Noodles
The first thing I ate in Hong Kong. LOVE THEM.  They were about 25 HKD (about $3.25)
Curry Fish Balls
A very common street food.  These had daikon and a lot of other ingredients.

 

Ci Faan
Sticky rice wrapped around fried dough, meat floss, and zhacai
This is the first time I had this.  I LOVED it!
Congee
This bowl was HUGE.  It was the same size as my wonton noodles!
I’m more used to having a smaller serving of congee!
Rice Noodle Rolls
I love these!
Random dumplings that I had for breakfast
These were surprisingly tasty!
 
Shrimp with bean curd skin
I also bought a few things while in Hong Kong.  In case you’ve never been to Hong Kong, there are drugstores on every single street block!
 
32 pack of My Beauty Diary masks
I debated buying this for the longest time!  This is a limited edition set only available around this time of year.  However, the masks included are permanent and can be bought separately.  This contains two each of the following masks: Collagen Firming, Sake Yeast, Red Vine, Bird’s Nest, Cooling Mask, Apple Polyphenol, Southern France Apricot, Aloe, Pearl Powder, Bulgarian White Rose, Black Pearl, Natto, Mixed Berries, Strawberry Yogurt, Q10, Strawberry Cherry Blossom
I also picked up this at the drugstore:
AB Mezical Fiber

This product is similar to Mezaik and is used to make double eyelids.  I have double eyelids, but I wanted to adjust the width.  A lot of girls in Japan now do this.

I also picked up a few things at the duty free.

Clinique Clarifying Moisture Lotion 3

I have been using the toner from the 3-step skin care, in addition to the moisturizing toners I use.  I decided to try this toner to see the difference with the regular 3-step toner.
This toner is over $75 in Japan, although it is just $20 in the US for the same size.


Clinique Three Little Soaps

This is also part of their 3-step skin care. I now probably have enough soaps for the next 2 years!

MAC MSF Natural Medium Plus

This is a little dark on me, but the Medium was too pink, so I decided to try this.

Let me know if you want reviews!

Thank you! Meet up with Mai-Kat Oshaberi

While in Hawaii, I also met up with Kat & Mai of Mai-Kat Oshbaberi.

Hime-chan, Kat’s cat.  Picture from Mai-Kat Oshaberi

Kat picked me up at my hotel and I had such a fabulous time with her!  I got to see her work place and I was AMAZED at her knowledge of flowers.

We met up with Mai for lunch and that was so much fun as well.  Mai and Kat have known each other since they were 4 years old!!!!

I even got to spend the night at Kat’s house!  I met her family as well, and they were all very kind people.  We had a good laugh about how vague and confusing Japanese is (for example, Japanese people will often drop the subject of a sentence.  You are supposed to “know” who/what they are talking about from the content!)

Kat even gave me a love pack!  I know for SURE that I’m missing some pictures… I’ll post some more when I find them…

A ton of Neutrogena Makeup Remover wipes.
These are not available in Asia!
I love these for nights when I’m too tired to take off my makeup properly!

NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in White
Rimmel Fix & Perfect Primer
Mauna Loa Butter Candy Glazed Macadamia Nuts
 OH DEAR.  These nuts were SOOOO yummy.
I should NOT have opened them!!! 

EcoTools by Alicia Silverstone 5 pc Bag & Brush Set 
I’m excited to try this brush set.
I tried a different travel brush set from another brand on this trip.  The review for that set is coming up!
My Beauty Diary masks

Kat’s husband asked me if I like Natto.  Natto is a slimy, smelly Japanese food product made from soy beans.  I’ve often seen it on “gross food lists” next to balut.  And yes, I do like it, since I grew up eating it.  I have officially become the 9th member of the Hawaii Natto Club!
I had never tried the Natto MBD mask.  Knowing what Natto is like, I was afraid that it would be slimy and sticky!  Now I’m excited to try it!

Paul & Joe makeup pouch with state quarters!!!
Jello instant pudding

As you know, I collect state quarters. Thanks to Kat, my collection is almost finished!  Wuzzy gave me some as well.  Thank you SO MUCH to both of you!!

Thank you again to Kat for being so INCREDIBLY kind to me.  I had a fantastic time!  I hope we can meet again soon!!!
