My body clock must have been fixed to the Australian time zone so much that when I was in Hong Kong, I was waking up at around 6am and zoning out in bed trying to go back to sleep. One morning, I was game enough to wander around the block to soak up some of the early morning vibe and fingers crossed, get my hands on some freshly baked goodies.
It was a chilly morning that day and I was greeted with the morning work crowd aka pedestrians rushing to catch the train/bus to work. I happily strolled into all the smaller streets, hoping to discover more unheard of cha chaan teng/ kopitiams. I did pass by Starbucks but that doesn't really fit the bill, unfortunately:S
I stayed at 75 Waterloo Road which is surrounded by at least 5 bakeries that must have been opened for business since 7am. I popped into all of them, and if I liked what I see, no second thoughts there.
Overall, I was impressed by the quality of the baked goodies here, considering that they are not too expensive as well. I did weigh myself after the trip had ended and found that I have in fact, lost a bit of weight. Must have been because the buns are not heavily loaded with butter/ other fatty ingredients which probably contributed to their feather light textures. If only I could go back...someday maybe:)
