Lunch with Long Lost Friends!
Last Friday, I was absolutely thrilled to meet up with my friends Katie and Richard from Hong Kong whom I had lost contact with for almost 20 years! She found me on Facebook. I'm so happy she still remembers me!
They have been sweethearts for the longest time - this photo is from 1991, when we last met (it was for school debates). That was my first trip to Hong Kong, and we all had so much fun.
Anyway, we met up for lunch. Char kway teow, nice, dark and sweet. This is from the corner of Liang Seah Street and North Bridge Road.
We also had a platter of stewed pork belly, tofu and egg from Yu Kee. Not bad.
Yu Kee's signature braised duck was very tender and moist.
Even the rice was expertly cooked - each grain separate and fragrant.
The meal was simple but nice, in a shady but breezy al fresco spot. It was lovely catching up with long lost friends, and I will definitely look them up on my next trip to Hong Kong.
