Cutenesses at Ngong Ping Village

Truckloads of cutenesses at Ngong Ping Village.
I know I love touristy places for a reason....

I am mad about souvenirs...MAD!
This might not be something new, but when I saw them...I couldn't help but feel amazed by how cuteee these miniatures are. They have Hong Kong's most popular foods...claypot rice, sushi...look at those tiny shrimps, eggs, abalone!


Bowls and bowls of noodles, dumplings and desserts...and Hong Kong cubicle dwellers' staple and favorite midnight snack...cup noodles!


...dainty little mini dimsums!


...and macho men's Hong Kong style steak and mixed grills on hot plates, all sold with a piece of cafe/dimsum restaurant's bill. How cute!!!

If you've been reading this blog for a while, you know I am a porcelain freak.
So imagine my reaction when I saw these...


...gorgeous teapots...delightful little darlings...I barely have space to store food, but I'll make room for you, my love.


Gorgeous teapots have to be with cute little tea cups (I am sure you can spot a shopaholic when you hear one).


...and these blue and white beauties...HK$100 (around USD13) for 3 pieces!!!
I'd feel sorry for myself if I didn't buy these...


This one is not totally irrelevant to food.
I bet this beautiful tea candle holder can make a simple dinner of instant noodles totally romantic!
...and naturally, everything will taste more delicious. Ohhh....how logical of me...


Look at this little guy...doesn't he whet your appetite? Look at his gesture..."Eat, eat!" he says.


This baby is so adorable, I wanna feed him porcelain bone treats all day!

Help! I need rehab!

I want mini food! Sooo cute! I have so many dishes and bowls too. I can't help myself. I literally have no room left in my cupboards and now just have an extra pile of dishes just sitting on the table because there's no other place left. And I'll probably keep buying more...
