Hong Kong 2018 Day 4 Part 2Jul 20, 2018 2 min read
After finishing up my otaku shopping, I headed to the Langham Place shopping mall for dinner.
I never really know where to eat in Mong Kok but I’ve now found my new go-to location.
Langham Place is a short walk from where I usually finish at the Sino Center and has like 15 floors of shops and multiple food courts and has its own train station.
The lower half of the mall looks fairly typical but the top half is like they clipped a bunch of pre-made assets together. The top half starts on this floor in the photo and houses a food court mostly of coffee and dessert shops.
I recommend following the escalators all the way up to the top then walk down. The escalators aren’t easily accessible once you break off mid-way to explore the shops as I found out the hard way.
Fun fact: The contractor that maintains these escalators cut corners causing them to eventually fail in 2017. This ended in a big human pileup with 17 injured and a massive fine to the company.
Oh hey, a Lego store. The first to open in Hong Kong and was the biggest in Asia (2016).
This mosaic on the outside depicts the Star Ferry along the habour view and uses over 100,000 Lego™ bricks. We’ll ride this ferry in a future Blog™ post (at this rate it’ll be done in 2020).
This took over an hour to arrive. Something must’ve happened in the kitchen because at some point they just stopped bringing out main courses. They even had the gall to go around telling people that their time was almost up. Bitch, you haven’t even given us our food yet.
First time having Korean fried chicken and it was super oishii.
0/5 for service though, didn’t even smile and thank us when we eventually paid and left.
Wanna go back to Japan…
Loot. Got Rosa and a melon pan cushion.
Didn’t expect to see Rosa (Mei) stocked in all the legit stores in the Sino Center (like, all 3 of them).
I looked it up later and apparently the May/Serena figures sold out so fast that they ended up overestimating the demand for Rosa and produced way too many.
