heading home soon

I'm heading home in a few days, after having spent the last two weeks eating an obscene amount of really yummy food. Among the highlights:

In Hong Kong:
- Peking duck
- roast goose
- shrimp wonton soup at King's Palace
- dim sum at Metropol
- all-you-can eat dessert buffet at the Grand Hyatt
- afternoon tea at the Peninsula

In Taipei:
- sushi at Shintori (3 times)
- Christmas dinner buffet at the Lai Lai Sheraton
- black pepper steak at Alice's
- Chinese breakfast (mmm, grease)
- tonkatsu in Tien Mu
- yakiniku at Kanpai
- teppanyaki at New Hama
- Peking duck again, at Long Du
- pudding and more at Porcini
- Thai food at Wa Tsun
- lots of others that I've forgotten

Hong Kong was really fun; it was the first time I'd been there since the handover, and although things had changed a bit, I was better able to appreciate the sights and sounds (and tastes) that we did experience.

Although, it was also kind of a nice feeling to return to Taipei and see the shorter and dingier but homier buildings and the narrower but more familiar streets.
