The sky don't hide

This photo was taken over 10 years ago with my old Panasonic LC33.  The photo showed IFC 2  and Four Seasons hadn't been completed.   I was on a ferry returning from Lamma Island.  Always enjoy going there, in solitude for a simple nature.  The sky don't hide.  The sea don't ride.  The breeze don't bide.  Innocent as it is.....

Le Breeza, Tai Hang, Causeway Bay HK

 Thought about if I should write on this restaurant as I was invited to a dinner at this place.  Sometimes it's hard to control how the dinner will be either on the food or the service quality, just like I brought some of my friends to places that dropped the quality and services.  So don't feel bad for such a quality drop when we try to share something nice with the others.  The food is just only there for an hour and gone in minutes, but friendship doesn't.
Overall, this place is quite cozy and serves some lunch and dinner set (at the price range of HK$100 for lunch and 200 for dinner), including a salad or soup, main course and coffee or tea.  The food is at average but as we wanted to get some bread, we got told we had to order it.  Then during the dinner, we got smoked from their pan frying oil fume due to their ventilator's failure.  However, no apologetic gesture was given from the shop and even those waiters smoked outside of the shop for a break.  I tried not to label Tin Hau but 10 out of 10 shops have been pretty disappointing to me.  One more to be posted later.

Grappa's, Italian restaurant, Taikoo Place, Quarry Bay HK

 This decent Italian restaurant once again told that a real pizza is much cheaper than those by Pizza Hut (HK$108 vs. 198).  What's more, a nice salad with fine ingredients is more healthy than those salad bar with a small plate for stunt man show.  I tried a very nice rissoto with very fresh grilled seafood at just HK$148!.  The whole meal is just HK$300 something.  *Grappa's made the pizza in a bite size.  Good to eat it in an elegant manner.

Last night of 2012 at Tsimshatsui

When we often say Happy New Year, I hope to remember a happy 2012 too.
