Hello my dear readers! It’s been a while since I last updated my blog, but mizzshopaholic is back and promise to be better than before. (I know I’ve said that before, but, in life, one should just keep trying, right?!) I guess I should explain the reason for being away and if you look at the below screenshot of my Facebook wall post, it will tell you why. Haha! Yes!! mizzshopaholic, moi, is officially in a relationship. A total of 47 likes on the profile update. Gee, really?! Were you guys worried that I was unwanted or something? But of course, I’m overjoyed with their enthusiasm and affection. Sincerely, thank you everyone! Finger crossed, let’s hope for the best! ;p Now, with my birthday in October and all the fabulous parties and events that took place last month, you see why my schedule went a bit haywire? So before I catch up on all the blog posts I’ve missed, here is something I got from my Hunny that I wanted to share with you all – Hello Kitty flower arrangement from Yume Flower Market, a licensed Sanrio florist that makes adorable flower arrangements like the one pictured above . How ’bout that?

So it was Sunday and everywhere was jam-packed with families and tourists when my girlfriend and I tried to secure a spot in the afternoon to grab a bite between our shopping trips. The initial plan was to go for high tea at one of those famous hotels so that I can blog about it but advance bookings are no longer available for many of them and we were horrified by the long queues. So thanks to my friend, she recommended the Main St. Deli at the Langham Hong Kong in Tsim Sha Tsui. What a delight?! No queues, practically empty, there was only one or two other tables. Aww finally… some peace and quiet, just the way I like it. I also love the girly decor with hints of lilac and emerald, and those amazing chandeliers that you don’t typically see in any diner. The New York style deli serves all the favourites of the Big Apple such as Reuben sandwiches, pastrami on rye, bagels, hot corned beef and chicken soup with matzoh balls. Just look at the scrumptious Salmon Club sandwich that I tried in the photos below and tell me if it doesn’t make your mouth water!! Chunky, succulent grilled salmon fillet on a triple decker homemade brioche bread. Simply incredible! Simply delicious!Lower Lobby, The Langham Hong Kong, 8 Peking Road, Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon, Tel: +852 2132 7898
