添好运 (Tim Ho Wan)
Address : Shop 8, Tsui Yuen Mansion,
2-20, Kwong Wa Street,
Mong Kok, Kowloon, Hong Kong

This is a must-try place when you visit Hong Kong. Would you believe just by looking at this picture that this restaurant had been awarded the Michelin Star?

We visited the branch at Mongkok which is near out hotel. There is also another branch at Sham Shui Po.

We went twice because the dim sum was simply great & most importantly, the price was very reasonable.

Be prepared to wait at least 30 mins to 60 mins, but I can tell you that it's definitely worth waiting for.
Just tell the staff the number of diners & they will write a number on the order slip. The number will be called out when the tables are available. The order slips come in Chinese & English, so if you can't read Chinese, request for the English version. The place is really very small, so the diners are basically sitting shoulders to shoulders.

Since went twice, we have basically try almost 90% of menu because we can share our food.

Elderly Friendly Country

Over the years, our government has done their part to make our environment more elderly friendly. The range of infrastructures include handle bars, ramps, lift-upgrading for HDB, subsidies for retro-fitting flats of elderly, etc.

This is the first time I see this special traffic light outside Tiong Bahru Plaza. Elderly with their EzyLink card can tap their card for longer crossing time. Since the card reader is still under wrap so I guess it's still not ready for use yet. I was quite excited to see this & was telling my mom that next time when she see such traffic light, she can tap her card so she can have more time to cross the road.

These are some of the hardware which our government can put in place to enhance our environment, but the software is still something which we have to work on.

Citizens in various estates had voiced their concerns & protested the building of elder day centers at their void decks, citing reasons like lower home values. I am for the idea of building elder care centers at void decks because if we can have child care centers, then why not elder care centers.
