Hong Kong & Macau - Day 4 (Part 1: Leitaria I Son / Yee Shun Milk Products)

Boarded the earliest ferry at China Ferry Harbour, we moved on to the next destination - MACAU! The whole journey was merely an hour as New Ferry travels at an unusually high speed.



At the ferry terminal, signboards are clear and abundant. Our Malaysia transport system should perhaps learn something from Hong Kong so that we won't get lost so easily on the road. Many foreign friends of mine actually complained to me about the lack of roadsigns in almost every part of the country. This is particularly true in Ipoh.

The interior of Macau Harbour resembles an airport terminal



At the ferry terminal, we took the town bus No.33A to reach Avenida de Almeida Ribeiro, the main road in Macau.  We alighted in front of Largo de Senado and made our way to Leitaria I Son or better known as Yee Shun Milk Products. 








Leitaria I Son is famous for Double Steamed Milk Custard and Steamed Egg Custard.


Double Steamed Milk Custard gets its name from the layer of coagulated skin that forms on the surface of the custard.  Mum and I had high expectations on the dessert but were disappointed by the custard that came as smooth as a mirror. The lady owner explained that the dessert was newly made and had yet to form the layer of skin. Without the skin, it looked like an ordinary steamed milk pudding. However, the custard was big on taste with a strong scent of milk. As for the steamed egg custard, it was equally good except for being overly sweet.



 We shared one Polo Bun
