Remember what Bilbo used to say...

" It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to."

Java Road Cooked Food:Tung Po Seafood Restaurant

I went and it was delicious! I arrived there half hour before everyone else. I wanted to photos before the place filled up with people…

Then I realized today my daughter was in every photo. So I am not able to post any photos. I guess I will have to go back again.
I highly recommend this website: the person has taken great photos and info:

Directions thanks to Hong Kong Hustle:

Take Exit A1 from the North Point MTR station and you’ll be just across the street from the building where the market is.
Remember it’s up an escalator on the second floor.

New food place

I am heading out with family and friends to a new food place. New for me, but not new to Hong Kong.

Why am I going here? This place has been featured on the T.V., in many, many Blogs and  in travel articles. I have been trying to get here for a while now, but something always gets in my way…usually my life.

My daughter started a blog: Froggy's Tattered Notebook:

My daughter has started a blog. We are using this as way to teach her about technology, the internet and for her to share her photos and knowledge about life at her young age.

"I am Froggy Girl. I am 9yrs old and I live in Asia. This blog is about my travels around the world with my Gypsy parents. I will share my favorite places, photos, books and my love for nature and Frogs!"
