(Nov. 21-24, 2008)
i was not too excited with this trip at first. the last time i went to HK was in sunny, summery July a few years back and it was really hot. we weren't able to go around much that time too because i was working thus HK didn't leave that much of a good impression on me.
the ferry ride from Macau took only about an hour. after settling down at our guesthouse for a bit we then got on the MTR to Central then the Victoria Peak.
We took the Peak Tram to and from the Peak then boarded a bus and the Star Ferry to Harbor City and walked up to the Avenue of Stars. we looked up the MTR station once more and got home safely just before midnight.
i now love the transpo system here in HK, it's just so simple and quite easy to follow. yup, we had a few misses and wrong turns but it was fairly easy for us to just stay on track.
ang masaya malamig ang panahon this time kaya okay lang maglakad lakad kahit malayo. yun nga lang, friend ko na ang salonpas ngayon hehe...
on our second day, we went to Ngong Pin 360 and got to ride the cable car and walk up to the big buddha. from there we went to more train rides to get to disneyland yey.
it was about past 8pm when we left disneyland just right after the fireworks. we were to meet some friend up in Central for dinner and drinks so we hopped on the train again. okay, we had some mix up when we boarded the train which was to go on the opposite side of our destination haha! kaya medyo napalayo at natagalan kami. but then, the train system is really that organized so we didn't panic instead we just enjoyed the joyride.
lan kwai fong is quite a gimikero's haven! we saw how HK people and the expats and the tourists love to party and revel till the wee hours of the morning. and i am more amazed at how the women dress up and have fun even if some will just have to hang around the streets or near 7-11 for their drinks.nice, nice!
on our fourth and final day, we just wanted to take it easy by covering still more sights but at a more relaxed pace. of course, i have been limping the past few days from the cold and too much walking. woe to my age indeed haha!
We took the MTR to Central, walked around Worldwide Plaza where there are a lot of Pinoy stores including Jollibee...took the bus to Stanley Market, saw Repulse Bay...went back to Central towards the pier...took the Star Ferry then walked all the way to Tsim Sha Tsui MTR station back to Jordan...we then took the Airport express for our 7pm flight back home. awww....
but we had such a great time playing turistas anyway! =)
