There is little else more pleasing in life than sitting down at a table and knowing you can eat everything and anything in sight. Freshly tumble-dried sheets and making it to the platform just as the MTR appears are up there too, but as foodies, nothing stands in the way of us and bounties of food waiting to be consumed. That extra pound or two that's slowly but surely creeping up is a contender, but we’ll cross that bridge when we get there.
