Nowadays, not many people go to the wet market for grocery. Everyone seems to prefer going to the supermarket or get a quick takeaway at a local restaurant.
I love going to wet market as the meat, vegetables and ingredients there are much more fresh than a chained supermarket. Plus I like to insist doing something that less and less people are keen on doing – taking the time and pleasure to go to an unglamorous place for something great.
Hong Kong is a place where the price range of restaurants is extremely wide. You can have a meal from HKD30 to HKD3,000, depending on where you go. It’s easy to just get a takeaway when you feel too lazy to cook, or that you’re dead tired after working for crazy hours at the office.
For me, having homemade food is a luxury, and I enjoy going to wet market over the weekend to pamper myself with fresh food. Fresh eggs, fresh shrimps, fresh choi sum and fresh everything. A beautiful life starts with healthy food and the pleasure to enjoy it. Isn’t it?
