Many of you already knew Hong Kong is my home country. Therefore, we didn’t really go to any site-seeing locations in Hong Kong. Mainly, we spent our time with friends and family, and planned some fun activities for the kids. Plus, visiting different places to enjoy food that we grew up with and missed dearly. Such as authentic Dim Sum at Chinese restaurants; freshest seafood feast, which in some restaurants, you can pick out your choices of live seafood from the tanks right outside the restaurant and the chef prepared your selections right away; street food as shown in the picture below, this particular vender offered fish balls, beef balls, fish cakes, sausages, octopus, stuffed veggies, and mini egg waffles, etc.
My favorite of all time? This soft-serve ice cream cones from this Mobile Softee (see picture below). This brand/truck for soft-serve ice cream has been in business for ages. I think my very first consumption of this Softee was possibly in my mommy’s tummy! LOL
There’s more I wanted to share with you about the adventure we had in Hong Kong. But, I’ll save those on another post because there were quite many pictures and details. For now, let’s do the giveaway! For those of you familiar with my blog, you probably know I had the logo with the Paper Wrapped Cakes pictures since the day this blog was born. Here’s the recipe. Quite a few of you inquired about where to purchase these molds. Unfortunately, they only sell them in Kong Kong. So, I thought of all of you while I was there. So here we go, the giveaway includes….
A) 10 Paper Wrapped Cakes Cake Molds (aluminum)
B) 20 Paper Cups that fitted perfectly with these molds
C) 2 Pairs of Wooden Chopsticks with Cloth Covers
D) Some of my favorite candies from Hong Kong (Coke Cola flavor mentos—tempting? Frutips—black currant fruit drops, mango flavor hard candies with fructose filling)
Sorry, table cloth not included! :P
