Hong Kong—Started with lunch at the Mandarin Oriental. Mom and I had Hainanese chicken rice (again!). Diday had noodles.

Then I took the subway to the other side in search of this new mall called The One.
On the food front, they have Tonkichi

Another place serves Thai chicken rice 🙂

I would like to eat here with Jeroen or Ana. This one’s called FULL/half

I walked through this entire mall and concluded that only the 8th floor is worth going to. But considering its location (near Granville Road), I don’t think I’ll be coming back, ever.
Spent the longest time at Homeless, a new store called Lost & Found

This place is magical

But this is my favorite store in the mall: The Blacksmith

I wanted to buy everything.

Silvercord is a must stop for me.
Capital I.T is where I spend the most time in the fitting room.

Met up with James and Jiki for dinner.
First stop: Mannings, to buy the miracle Tomato pill.

IMG_2642

Both Jiki and James lost so much weight. Jiki’s on the Dukan Diet and James is on the Tomato pill.
I bought the last two boxes at Mannings.
You take the pill 30 minutes before bedtime (no midnight snacks allowed) and it burns your fats while you sleep. James swears your tummy disappears!!

We swore to diet together and keep tabs on Twitter.
But first, dinner at Cuisine Cuisine at IFC.

Prawn balls in salted egg = heaven!!

We came here for Peking Duck only to find out you have to order a day in advance. So we ordered fried chicken instead, which was just average.

Jiki’s veggies

IMG_2655

We talked diet the entire time + Manila gossip

IMG_2656

For dessert, I got to meet Jiki’s boyfriend, Kester

IMG_2671

Kester, please marry my friend!!

IMG_2672

Parted at the Four Seasons where Jiki discovered an ATM near the restrooms—how convenient!

IMG_2680

I love these people cause they don’t force me to go to Lan Kwai Fong.
With that, I went upstairs and proceeded to pack. 🙂

I used it for 2 months and it’s really effective! Since I’ve reached my desired weight, I have extra few unopened bottles left that I would like to sell. I got it myself from a Manning’s store in HK.. Here’s my contact no. 0927-2005915 🙂

Hi! I got myself three bottles of the Tomato Pills, and I actually don’t know the proper dosage for it. May I ask how many pills to take? And, It’s 30 minutes prior to sleep, right?

yes. 1-2 pills a day. 2 if you’re big and 1 if you’re small.
