Welcome to the Yankeesland~ :D

By the way, for those who might wonder who I am, I’m a Taiwanese avid Yankees fan who lives in Hong Kong. I’m old school who didn’t start using a smartphone until March, 2013 and didn’t sign up a Facebook account until February, 2014 (because without one, I can’t check who tagged my blog on Facebook! =.=a). Also, I was finally baptized in the end of March, 2013 after nearly a year’s investigating in church. =.=a

 

Must-See Triple Plays!

20 Apr

 

If you just want to see the Yankees’, slide the time to the following:

1:52 ~ 2:15 (Yankees’ Triple Play in April, 2014 initiated by Solarte)
4:11 ~ 4:25 (Yankees v.s Okland, initiated by A-rod)
5:35 ~ to the end (the UNFORGETABLE one. NOT the “TRADITIONAL” 6-4-3 triple play)

All of the Yankees’ triple plays happened when C.C was on the mound! Coincidence, huh?

 

About Restaurants/Diners I’ve been to Recently

19 Apr

Two are in Tsim Sha Shui and the other two are in Yuenlong:

 

#1. The Chinese/Taiwanese restaurant on the 4th in the shopping mall The One:

→ Food recommended: steamed buns, pan-fried dumplings, glutinous rice cakes, fried pork chops, spicy steamed dumplings.

→ If you are a Taiwanese soupy noodles lover fond of the well-renowned beef noodles, wanton noodles or sour & spicy noodles, I guess you’d like this place.

→ pan-fried dishes: It was a pity that I couldn’t get to try any. They were mostly sold out by the time I got there =.=a…I would very much like to try their San Bei (Three Cups, sesame oil is one of the 3 sauces) Chicken or Spicy Chicken Dices (Kung Bao Chicken) and sweet sour pork.

 

#2. The Chinese restaurant on the MTR level of K11 Art Mall:

‧Menus here are similar to those in the Chinese restaurant in The One. I particularly liked shrimp steamed dumplings, stir-fried beef (very tender!) with green onions and ginger, eel fish slices with teriyaki sauce and spicy pan-fried chicken dices.

 

#3. The Turkish diner in a small alley of Yuenlong:

→ This little dinner in a small alley of Yuenlong is definitely a hidden pearl!!! When I found it on Google search, I was so surprised that in a quite suburb town Yuenlong, there is a Turkish restaurant located in a small alley intersecting with the main road! There are English menus & English speaking waitresses available so even you don’t speak Cantonese, it’ll be totally fine~ XD

→ The diner is a tiny place. I guess (less than) 20 customers will make the little place full~ ^^!

→ Dishes recommended: Turkish doner, Turkish fried chicken (different from western fried chicken), Arabic samosa and stir-fried rice (what Tony Stark had when he got captivated in Afghanistan but I can’t remember its name…=.=a)

→ Desserts exist only on the menus but are never available! XD According to the English-speaking waitress, they’ve never had desserts available so I can’t help but wonder why on earth they even bother to list those yummy-looking desserts on the menu? =.=a

 

#4. The Chinese diner on the main road (Castle Peak Rd) of Yuenlong:

→ A little family diner opens 24/7 on Castle Peak Rd, Yuenlong.

→ I love steamed fish there!!! There are 5 choices and all are cheap and cheerful!!! I also like their dim sum, including spring rolls and steamed shrimp buns.

 

David Letterman – NY Yankees Jeter, Pettitte & Posada

18 Apr

It’s an old video in 2009 when Yankees won the World Series championship! Andy Pettitte, Derek Jeter and Jorge Posada were invited to David Letterman’s Late Show. I’ve seen this video a lot of times and came across it on a Yankees beat writer blog today. So, why not post it here & enjoy the video again? XD~

 

 

Jeter is quick-witted, isn’t it?

 

About Massage Places I’ve been to in Hong Kong So Far

17 Apr

I’ve enjoyed massage SO MUCH. Not only does it feel relaxing but as a computer-based freelancer, it can no doubt relieve my occupational “hazard”: shoulder stiffness or even soreness. However, I haven’t been to any in Hong Kong until last month since I “officially” lived in Hong Kong. NOT that I didn’t want to but I couldn’t find any (Google massage parlors/salons in Hong Kong and you’ll find out why~ Orz’). Luckily, my significant other found one on Cameron Rd in Tsim Sha Shui last month and that set off our massage “journey” in Hong Kong! XD~ The two we’ve been to so far, one as said above in TST and the other in our local area Yuenlong, both have their pros and cons but weighing up benefits and drawbacks, we prefer the one in Yuenlong. Here are more details of the two massage houses::

 

Massage House in TST:

Price: reasonable (about 50 dollars more expensive than the one in Yuenlong)

Membership Discounts: Yes, they offer different packages but I didn’t pay attention to any of them. =.=a

Space: Lager than the one in Yuenlong

Comfortableness of the reclining sofas: very comfortable

Friendliness of the staff: friendly but business-like

Location: Very convenient to both HK locals and tourists.

Masseur(s) recommended: Yes, there is one there I would highly recommend!

 

Massage House in Yuenlong:

Price: reasonable (slightly cheaper than the one in TST)

Membership Discount: Yes, about 15% off if you pay a HKD$3000 deposit.

Space: smaller than the one in TST

Comfortableness of the reclining sofas: above average

Friendliness of the staff: VERY friendly and attending to customers’ need by frequently asking if the massage caters to their need.

Location: Convenient to only locals in Yuenlong

Masseur recommended: I haven’t really found one yet but those two serving us last Saturday were both good enough.

 

Kaley Cuoco Revealed Johnny Galecki was Her Ex!!

16 Apr

It is Kaley Cuoco that was dating Johnny Galecki, NOT Penny dating Leonard!!!

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/04/01/kaley-cuoco-ryan-sweeting-henry-cavill_n_5069112.html

One person who got to share the love was Cuoco’s ex-boyfriend and “Big Bang Theory” co-star Johnny Galecki, whom she secretly dated for two years. “It took a minute, a bit of awkwardness,” she admitted. “By the grace of God, we became best buddies and moved on in such an elegant way. [He’s] one of my closest friends. He was in the front row at my wedding, with a huge smile on his face.”

 

Very gossipy I know ^^! but as a huge fan of this series for 7 seasons so far, it is indeed a big surprise. Ha.
