It was just supposed to be a short visit by boat to see the magnificent Jumbo Floating Restaurant which was one of Hong Kong's famous landmarks as well; and a symbol of the Eastern Pearl.
However, this innocent notion of a visit during dinner time turned out more than we expected and without us knowing it, we were on our way to one fine Oriental dining experience that we can never forget:)

The grand boat provided by the restaurant to ferry their customers from this mini docking pier to their floating platform.

The ride is for free; of course:)

These were all the other restaurants trying their luck at imitating the famous restaurant

Which was nothing close to this grandeur and impressive palace-like restaurant!

My Cup of Tea:)

A bowl of lemon juice with a hint of XO in it
This was used for rinsing your hands after peeling your prawns and was definitely not meant for drinking!
*Rumours had it that Queen Elizabeth once drank this; unknowingly as her majesty thought that it was XO:p
