Yung Kee Restaurant, Hong Kong
What’s a trip overseas without making new gay friends? I love them gays! I really do. Most of my real-life friends (HUWATTT FRIENDS ?!?!?!) are often married geriatrics, and worse, married geriatrics WITH KIDS. Because of this, I sometimes forget that I’m a young gay person. HUWATTTT YOUNG GAY PERSON? Haha. JK.
ANYHOO. Johannes and Kenneth invited me for lunch at Yung Kee restaurant, famous (apparently) for its roasted goose. No we didn’t eat dog or baby pigeons, don’t be silly. Click click click!
So over century eggs, we talked about ourselves, the Philippines, Brazilian guys, Beijing, Shanghai and my aspirations of being a real-life tai tai.
I love century eggs! I really do. They’re lovely.
I love this soup! They were teasing me how that thing is actually a baby turtle but no, it’s mushroom. And it’s super delicious. I swear!
Kenneth also ordered this salted fried fish.
He was all like “OH BB you HAVE to try this fish. It’s so good!! But I’m warning you that it’s really smelly.”
Y’all know me — I’m a voracious eater and I’ll eat anything and everything (ok except dog, baby pigeons or turtles)… but fish, pissy easy right?
He kept on saying it’s smelly, it’s smelly blah blah blah BEFORE IT EVEN ARRIVED so I was nervous.
When the fish came, I was like… OH.
Sa loob loob ko sabi ko PUTANG INA ALL THAT DRAMA EH DAING LANG PALA YAN NOH PAGKAIN NG MAHIRAP!!!! CHARING! TV5 LIPGLOSS IS DAT CHU? MGA IMPAKTA DON’T MAKE A BIG DEAL OUT OF IT. SABI NG NANAY KO MAHAL ANG DAING AT TUYO/DANGGIT/BIYA (??) NGAYON MAS MAHAL PA SA MANOK!
(Translation: All that drama when we also have that in the Philippines! Piece of cake!)
I seriously laughed. But that fish was good though. Madami lang tinik.
WHY AM I TYPING IN MONKEY SPEAK? UGH.
OK. I seriously laughed. That fish was good. It was quite bony though.
Moving on… we ate… A LOT. You’d think a bunch of gays would be pro-ana but no, we all ate like construction workers. Clearly it was a feast!
Ooh la la!
It’s such a shame I (yes, I) had to cut our lunch short because of several appointments. That was some seriously nice food but most importantly, I LOVE their company. It felt as if I’ve known them for a long time. Thank you so much for lunch!!
Gaysians you better WORK. Work those Vivienne Westwood pirate boots!
Kenneth, the one with the black Birkin, took a few pap shots of me.
Good photographer or great model? You decide. Haha!
Actually, you know what I think? I look FIERCE AND FEROSH in any shot as long as I got my face covered.
I definitely miss you guys. We HAVE to see each other again. SOON!!!
