Having Fun in Hong Kong Day 2

The next morning we were supposed to have breakky at Mido Café, also near Yau Ma Tei MTR station. The reviews for it were not bad and we wanted to experience having breakfast in a rustic environment. But it was closed and we wanted to set off early to see the Big Buddha so we settled down at a random Cha Chan Teng.
The mum's Beef Bee Hoon I think.
Had a plate of fried noodles for sharing.
My Pork Chop Bun.
The dad and sister ordered the congee. Didn't take note of the name of this place but I wouldn't recommend this anyway. Before I came here I used to think that every shop in Hong Kong sells fantastic food.
Yay next was a visit to Lantau Island! Started our tour with Ngong Ping Village!
Directions by bus: Take the MTR Tung Chung Line to Tung Chung Station. Then take New Lantau Bus No. 23 to Ngong Ping. The journey will take about 50 minutes. But our driver drove pretty fast and we reached in about half an hour time. You can also choose to take the cable car over it's much faster I think.
I got to see the Big Buddha at last!! After climbing 268 steps!! And I made it bwahahaha!
Fabulous view from the top!
Photo by myself.
Then we came down and immediately felt like we needed some food to generate more energy.
This Chee Cheong Fun was awesome.
And the Tau Huey and Glutinous Rice. Awesome and awesome.
Next we went to Tai-O because the mother heard that it looks like the Venice of Hong Kong and wanted to take a look at this village so badly.
From Ngong Ping Village to Tai-O, take Bus No. 21. Buses arrive at intervals of 20 minutes. We googled the bus schedule online haha!
Let's not kid ourselves. It looks more like Kukup.
Dried oysters.
Live seafood.
Dried salted fishes.
More of them.
And even dried pufferfish, I thought it was damn disgusting.
We bought sotong and curry fishballs from this stall near the entrance. Not cheap but freaking delicious we contemplated to get second servings!!
The recommended things to eat at Tai-O village are the egglets, beancurd, lor mai chi, Chinese pizza and grilled seafood. We didn't see most of these food though. :(  
That night we had the famous Hing Kee Claypot Rice for dinner. The nearest MTR station was Yau Ma Tei and Hing Kee is located along temple street. They have quite a number of branches so you couldn't possibly miss them!
  While we were strolling along our hotel district we came across Yee Shun Milk Company. We mistook it for Australian Diary Company and stupidly walked in lolol. But I think this is also quite a famous place for desserts. This milk pudding was pretty good, although I don't really like milk puddings.
I ordered this thinking that it was some mango pudding and when I saw a drink I was super disappointed lol! But ohmygosh it's freaking nice I could drink 2 cups on my own. Blessing in disguise. :D
