i flying over tmr morning. I saw the weather forecast and these few days will be hazy?
Hazy or pollution .. i dunno..
Anyway the weather has been fine here in Hong Kong.. temperature from 19 to 22 degree Celsius, like air-con room in the open but yet can be rather warm sometime with the afternoon sun.

i ate at li yu men b4.. quite nice.. even tho its catered for tourists.. very unique because u go through a wet market first, then u choose, then it will be brought up in the restaurant for u to eat.. very unique.. price wise.. its really quite ex la. be sure to try the pissing prawn.. haha.. i think its called lai liu har or something like that.. when u take out of the water it will "pee" haha..

It gotta be Saigon (not the one in Vietnam). Google the net for more info. use keywords 'hong kong saigon'.

haha..yah the famous lai liu har...lol

i'm wondering if the rest of the seafood places are like LYM anot cuz it seems to be a HK thing to buy fresh seafood then send to restaurant to be prepared.

i'll be goin to tai - O when i go over to lantau island...dunno there got seafood anot...if non is like LYM...then i might head down to that place...hmmm

We did some research for our april'07 trip but in the end skipped Saigon because of time constraint. As such, I do not have any first hand info on any seafood restaurants but we were recommended - Tung Kee, Chuen Kee or Hung Kee. Perhaps the following may help.

So far the $$ changer at people's park remains my top preference if i need to change $$ .. Think is just opp a confectionary shop. Always alot of ppl there changing their $$ ...
