Despite the cold cold cold weather though, it was a walking trip. We rummaged around the area, found nice little shops and food and drinks.
|Freezing in the ferry.|
|Japanese half-boiled eggs|
|Wild mushroom ramen.|
|Meat things for J. Haha I forget what they were.|
(By the way, if you're into makeup and all that, I have quite a few stories about my Hong Kong haul here.)
Premiere Pression Provence. It is tucked inside the narrow little Graham Street, where down the road I saw a street market, its stalls slowly being put up.
|Just look at that branding. Lovely.|
|I'd love to get my hands on this cookbook.|
The most beautiful part, it's a mix-your-own-olive oil shop! We tried so many kinds of olive oils, from the fruity to the woodsier range, but in the end we stuck to the olive oil set that came with 5 different varieties rather than mixing our own blend (which we feared might suck). I wasn't able to take a proper photo of the lavender honey I got for my new honey collection. (Last year I faced my new found affection for honey and started collecting one from each area I go to.) There was a balsamic vinegar area as well, and they had all these concoctions that just about blew my mind.
|Olive oil candy!|
We were given free samples of their own olive oil candy which was divine. Premiere Pression Provence is located at 39 Graham Street, Central, Hong Kong. I think you must check this one out.
Just across the PPP boutique in Graham Street is this cute little boutique but I have no way of understanding what it says on its sign. If you do, please let me know. They had washi tapes, the cutest ceramic stuff, japanese fabrics...sigh. This place was a dream.
Perpendicular to Graham Street is another street which name escapes me but it had this curious shop called Vintage HK. It had a wide assortment of vintage jewelry, clothes, shops and whatnot--definitely comparable to vintage shops in Cubao X, which I like.
There's more of my HK Day 2 Chronicles but I am resisting the urge to post everything in this one post. Let's reserve a little more for later, shall we? The other stores we went to are just as lovely! Definitely, definitely, inspired. I want to put up my store/cafe someday. Love, W.
