First of all, we would like to wish our readers a happy Mid-Autumn Festival! With a huge array of mooncakes to choose from, I'm sure everyone is spoilt for choice. However, for an indecisive person like me, the headache is a yearly affair. In the end, I decided to order from Grand Hyatt to satisfy my craving for snowskin mooncakes.

"S: Taste, M: Enjoy, L: Share"
We're back to HKG, and this will be the last stretch of reviews of the food establishments we visited during the exchange period. Again, we found ourselves back in Times Square in Causeway Bay (previous reviews include Ganpachi Ramen and Tony Roma's). SML stands for Small, Medium, Large, offering dishes from various parts of the world in three different sizes to suit everyone's appetite.

A taste of sweet kimchi fried rice!
We've come to the last part of the Jeju Island trip. It was time to go home (read: HKUST), but before that, a simple lunch before the flight would be great, I thought. Not surprisingly, Jeju International Airport is one of the busiest airports in South Korea. Oh, did you know that it was originally established in 1942 as a military facility, and then re-opened in 1968 as an international airport?

Highly nutritious abalone porridge!
After a fun, but tiring trip to the Manjanggul Cave, one of the world's finest lava tunnels, as well as the Seongsan Ilchulbong on the eastern end of Jeju Island, it was high time for dinner (read: around 9.00pm). At that time, I was already worried that I wouldn't have the chance to taste jeonbukjuk (전복죽), a variety of Korean porridge made with white rice and abalone.

Healthy goodness of young chicken and ginseng!
It was a cold, windy day when, after completing the journey to the last of the three famous waterfalls of the island, as well as the free entry to the Seobok Exhibition Hall we found along the way, I was craving for a nice samgyetang (삼계탕), a Korean variety of ginseng chicken soup, to warm the soul.

The biggest bibimbap I've ever encountered!
Let's continue with our Jeju Island trip! I spent almost the whole day to trek at Hallasan, a shield volcano which happens to be the highest mountain in South Korea. With Pikachu and Melon sleeping in my bag, too exhausted to look around for a nice restaurant, I decided to have a quick dinner at the Food Hall in E-Mart after shopping for snacks and stuff.

We'd like to apologise for the lack of updates nowadays. I need to pull myself together in the midst of life's craziness before I can write something substantial. Expect more Jeju Island and HK food reviews to come!
Oh, yes, Pikachu and Melon have a new friend!
See you again soon! :)
Have a nice meal,

Mouth-watering five-layered pork belly!
Welcome to Jeju Island! After a tiring trip on the southern part of the island, looking for the Jusangjeolli Cliff, two of the three most famous waterfalls of the island, as well as the Teddy Bear Museum, I was completely exhausted, longing for a nice dinner.
