Travelogue: Hong Kong Day 3: Eat & Yoga & Eat (Dec 2015)

I took the MTR to Causeway Bay on a Sunday morning and felt like I was the only one awake in this whole city. Only a few people (domestic workers) were on the train and the streets were empty! It certainly did not feel like HK. Nothing was open so I walked around…

I walked around until it was time for the free yoga class at Lululemon in Hysan Place. I was the first one there, of course…

I was surprised when the class started filling up. I had registered ahead of time (I always look up free Lululemon classes before traveling!) and asked to borrow a mat. They were accommodating.

The yoga class was led by the lovely yogi-extraordinaire Héloïse Chong in English and I felt invigorated!

They even had free apples.

Héloïse Chong! She was really lovely to talk to.

There was a LINE store at Hysan Place for a limited time so of course I went.

My cousin Eunice took me to Tai Cheong Bakery in Central for their AMAZING egg tarts. Really good when they’re fresh out of the oven!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Others may disagree, but I loved their egg tarts. I personally don’t care for the flakey crust and prefer this instead.
