When I went to Hong Kong last year, I managed to savour most of the food I desired. However, when I came to one of the must-go destination - Australian Dairy Co. at Parkes Street, I saw throngs of people winding outside its door, anxious to get in to enjoy their famed scrambled eggs and macaroni set. I urged my mum to join the queue while I sneaked into the shop to take a glance at the menu. As an out-of-towner, I was not aware of the efficiency of the waiters in HK trying to get their customers in and out as quickly as possible. I was silly enough to have stood right at the entrance and obstructed the flow of traffic. I was asked to leave by a waiter in the rudest manner I've ever encountered. He said this in Cantonese:
"Che che, lei yut kor yun chor chee yee sup kor yun ah!"
(He meant I had prevented twenty customers from entering the shop.)
Consequently, I left and missed the most must-eat food in Hong Kong. However, my wish is now granted as my brother who recently went on his vacation in HK bought me a few packets of instant macaroni. I therefore came up with my version of scrambled eggs and macaroni set at home.
