Favourite Fish Soup Stall Calling It A Day.

I woke up rather late yesterday afternoon after feeling exceptionally tired the previous night. It was already 5.15pm, made a hot cup of coffee black and ate three pieces of McVitie's Digestives biscuits while going through my mails. Then, I felt like, and started writing about the 'mobile' passenger I had ferried earlier. When I finished and put up my post, I felt a bit hungry again and was thinking what to have for 'lunch' later, meanwhile I logged on to my facebook to read some postings and made some comments and then I thought it would be nice to go to Whampoa Food Centre and eat my favourite steam-boat fish soup dish, a sudden craving, and before anything else could happen, I was on the way to Whampoa.
Whilst enjoying my food, I was told by the waiter who served me that in about 3 months time, this steam boat stall would be closing down. I was surprised and started asking questions. It seems the owner had sold his stall for a tidy sum and decided to call it a day after having done this business for such a long time and since a very good offer to buy his stall came along, it was done. Last night his takings were a few thousand dollars by the time I had finished eating and left. I felt sad about its closure in the very near future.
The fish soup steam boat dish was simply delicious and I patronise this stall at least 3 times a week. I am going to miss my usual for sure and it won't be the same anymore when there is a takeover. Well, looks like I have to hunt and search for another good fish soup joint soon, won't be the same though, but for the time being I better start thinking about earning some bucks to cover my rental as its getting......., waah! 9.30pm already!
Better start working now.
