Treasure Lake Golden Banquet Restaurant
I was overzealous in ordering as I was famished and so starved of good dim sum. There was no mobile food carts like in the old days. The ordering had to be done on a list which we ticked the items we wanted and you don't see the food until they arrive at the table. This was what three of us had that day...
The classic must-have items. All came in bigger sizes than the ones we get in KK, each basket had at least four pieces and that's when I knew I was in trouble for ordering so much. Two baskets each of the har gau and siu lung pau too.
The fried dim sum and they were all delicious especially the top two, ham sui kok (glutinous meat dumplings, my favorite of the deep fried dim sum) and the almond coated rolls with a sweet filling of cream and fruits. Yummz.
We didn't do justice to the last two dishes as we had to force ourselves to finish them, naturally they didn't taste that good at that time. Leanne kept saying if her daddy was there as he would be able to finish the food!
This is the day for Leanne. Although he didn't say but I know Bryan was also looking forward to Disneyland. Who wouldn't? I know I was excited too but was very apprehensive about the weather that was hovering around 30c.
Disneyland at 2 pm in Summer in Hong Kong was insane. We had on three layers of sun protection - 1) sunscreen 2) caps 3) umbrella and I could still feel the heat. But that didn't slow down the kids one bit. They were able to do most of the rides and attractions (eventhough the queues were long it was not like in Tokyo Disneyland where each queue took hours!)
Disneyland HK is small compared to Disneyland LA and Tokyo and the magic being there didn't hit me like it did my last two trips (LA and Tokyo), I suspect it was the heat (I was melting away) as the last two trips were all in cooler weathers - winter and autumn.
This got to be my all time favorite of Disneyland. After a tour of this section, this tune was playing in my head the whole day '...It's a small world after all, it's a small, small world...'
The special train with Mickey Mouse windows that took us from Sunny Bay Station to Disneyland.
Now Paris and Florida Disneyland would be her (Leanne's) next dream...and mine too but not in Summer!
