Nope, I haven’t popped over to the mainland unnoticed by the sentries but I have been to a Shanghainese restaurant called Beautiful Shanghai in Cyberport for a spot of lunch this week.

What can we expect from Shanghainese food I hear you splutter in between mouthfuls of Doritos?!
I really don’t know….perhaps a mixture of pleasurable taste sensations from my humble lunch time experience.
Here are some pictures:

The dumpling on the left had a piping hot soupy mixture inside it which could have been nasty if I were not warned well in advance. The right side dumplings were mixture of veg and shrimp. Just popping in to shot some pork strip.Nice. Next!

Hmmm Shanghai Noodles. Tasty thick glutinous noodles with a beefy oily sauce and a smattering of vegetables. The word smattering can only be used in the context of food.

Didn’t have much of this. Stringy noodles in a bath of peanut broth. It was so peanuty don’t bother stepping foot inside of Cyberport if you have a peanut allergy. You’re in danger.

Would I dine here again. Yes. I would feast down upon a big dish of Shanghai Noodles making growling barking sounds to ward off any table friends wanting to share.

With the start of the new school year the mood in Chez Bonkers is somewhat muted and resigned.

The summer is over.

We have a long year ahead of us with few respite opportunities. But we will prevail. Oh yes.

Anyhue, we will nip off to the movie emporium tonight for a few hours of “entertainment”.
I have been pleased with my cinema experiences here in Honkers. I go to the relevant cinema’s website and choose my seats. I doddle along, usually to our nearest JP Cinema hereĀ  in Causeway Bay go up to a magic box on the wall, swipe my credit card, and two movie tickets plop out in to my sweaty hands. The respective screening rooms are quite big in JP cinema; which is a shock as you would expect space to be a factor here. And I am very pleased to announce that audience annoyances are minimal (and I get annoyed easily with idiots in a cinema). I think Honkers citizens have an appreciation of their films.

We are going to seeĀ Orphan as one of us loves horror movies and the other….goes for the popcorn and sheer experience!

Oh yeah and Honkers is stinkin’ hot these days. And I’m about to embark on over an hours travel to play football in it. Nice.
