Hong Kong Trip - Day 2

Second day was the most tiring day in my Hong Kong Trip, but it's a day with joy and fun.. Wake up early in the morning, prepare to go for our first breakfast in Hong Kong.. If I never been to Hong Kong, I will think that the Dim Sum at Taman Cannaught was nice, but once I tried the "Dim Sum" nearby the hotel, KL's Dim Sum was not that delicious.. Each of the choice was so nice, there are 4 prawns in one Prawn Dumpling, so how's delicious is it.. Cost around HK$220..

After that, we meet our tour guide, Emil to start our half day tour, it's included with the tour we purchased at Matta Fair.. The first place to visit was the "Golden Bauhinia", located at Wan Chai of the Hong Kong Island, is the important symbol for the Hong Kong people after reunification.. For sure we have to take a group photo here to memorize..

And here was the popular place as well, where so many TVB drama taken their scene here, "溏心风暴之家好月圆" is one of the drama where Moses Chan and Yeung Yi acting here.. Here, can see the Kowloon Penisular, it's all tall buildings.. The air conditions in HK almost same with KL, full of mist..

In this trip, we have less of group photo, think to bring my tripod, but it seems so "ma fan", then just decide not to bring.. So we try to get the nice place to place the camera for group photo shooting.. Here is it!! Smile!

Since I have borrowed my sister's SLR Camera, and it can adjust the shutter speed, for sure will not lost the chance to jump at this nice place.. 1,2,3 JUMP!! Guess who jumps the highest? I know I'm the most lowest..

Here, there is another symbol for Hong Kong, which is "The Monument in Commemoration of the Return of Hong Kong to China", 3 minutes walk from Golden Bauhinia..

Second visit was to the Hong Kong Jewellery Company, the beloved of those aunty.. Once we reached the place, all the sales man has standby to promote and sell their product.. Since we have no interest on it, so we just ignore it..

Then we went to the next venue, which is "香港仔避风塘", where we can see that the fishermen are still staying on the boat, no matter they sleeping, eating, bathing or working also on the boat.. From here, we can also imagine and enjoy the life of a rich man, there are so many cruise here, and most of it are from the millionaire and billionaire.. The fees for boat travelling is not counted in the tour, so person HK$50..

Non-stop for the eye sighting, Emil brought us to the rich man staying area, "Repulse Bay" 半山区, the one that I pointed was Jacky Chan's house.. Believe it? I don't know, we just listen what's Emil told us.. Nice bay and the pavilion here was so familiar, we can see it from those TVB Drama.. Recognize it?

Then we end the half day tour at Tsim Sha Tsui area, the last place was the medicinal herbs shop, also the favorite of the aunty gang.. Around 10 minutes, we has left the place, we got nothing to buy..

At first we didn't planned to Macau, but since we have no activity for Day 4, so decide to buy the Macau Tour from Emil's Company, Ann's Travel, HK$700 person for the Macau Tour, included the transport from hotel to port, buffet lunch and half day tour..

Then recommended by Emil, we have tried the "Wan Tan Mee" nearby the agency, it's so delicious, the Wan Tan is all prawns, every bite was so tasty and yummy! Like it so much.. Having meal in HK is very hard, there has no table for six or eight, always have to share table with others strangers.. Wan Tan Mee, HK$18..

Since we at the Tsim Sha Tsui, so we walked around the "Avenue of Stars", taking photo with Bruce Lee Statue, Palm Print and Signature.. Know what? My hand same size with Eric Tsang, his hand so small and cute.. Most of it do have the palm print and signature, but some with only the name of the stars.. In the morning, we see the Kowloon Penisular at Hong Kong Island, and in the evening, we see the Hong Kong Island at Kowloon Penisular.. The really convenience travel from Hong Kong to Kowloon..

We are guys who love to act, for sure wont the time to act cool, pretty, cute and smart.. Here we are!! 1,2,3 Camera!

At first, we thought we left so much time for today's plan, all of us not wearing watch, besides Phin Phin, but his watch suddenly no battery.. OMG.. We have spent around 1 and half hours at the Avenue of Stars.. No wonder so tired.. Haihz.. Still left some time, then we go shopping at the Harbour City, I think is the biggest shopping mall in HK..

5.30pm finished shopping and rush to "Madame Tussauds", we thought we can reach there early, but due to the National Day of China, China holiday for one week, so all the tourist attraction full of crowd, wait almost one hour for the cable car.. Know what? We saw Mawi.. Yes, is Mawi.. I think only Malaysian can recognized him, what's a bad thing.. And finally we reached there at 7pm, only one hour time for the visit, coz we need to go for the laser showing around the harbour..

All of us has took the good shot with our beloved Superstar and Idols.. We can hug, kiss, touch and hold their hand.. Haha.. but too bad it's not the real one.. At the main entrance, was Michelle Yeoh and continued with Jacky Chan's, but this only for the in-house photographer to take photo, no photo taken with this Jacky Chan.. Too bad.. Once entrance the hall, my beloved Jay Chou is standing there, my god.. Love it so much!!

Left only 5 minutes, we rushed to the top for the laser showing, but due to the haze and mist, can't even see the laser.. Too bad!!

Once we reached hotel, is almost 9.30pm.. I'm damn tired, but me and Phin Phin have to keep all our stuffs to shift room.. This room is better than the previous one.. Bed is bigger (but I think is a super single bed, cheat me it's a queen size bed), bath room is bigger and the walk way also width.. Satisfy with this room.. So accepted!!

Is dinner time, but it's consider as supper, we have the claypot rice just downstair of our Hotel, it's a bit different with our claypot chicken rice, but I prefer KL de taste..

After meal, we thought wanna go to Temple Street to buy the blue magazine, but too late, most of the shop has close, so wait for tomorrow chance.. Hehe.. So me, Phin Phin, Vincent and Tammy go for massage.. Foot Massage nearby hotel.. Phin Phin take only the Foot Massage, and me take the Foot Massage and the Shoulder Neck Massage, this cost us HK$208.. Consider very cheap.. Relaxing after massage, slept like a pig!! Hehe!!

Hong Kong Trip - Day 1

A trip with 3 lovely couples, me and Phin Phin, Vincent and Tammy, Lok Fun and Wei Sien.. 4 in the morning, we have well prepared and wait for the taxi to pick us to airport.. Is so sleepy, so once on board, sleep in just a minute of time.. Every one hour wake up once, it's so tiny of space, make me so uncomfortable.. Seems the H1N1 virus not that serious, cause there are not many people wearing mask in the airport..

After 4 hours, finally arrived at HKIA.. After the custom, wait for the local tour guide to fetch us to hotel.. Haihz.. Know what! The hotel room at Bridal Tea Hotel (Yau Ma Tei, 油麻地) is so small, unbelievable, before this, I have searched internet for the room pictures, it's look big, but the real one is so small.. With 2 single beds, 1 bathroom, but the shower doesn't work, so request to change the room..

After placing the luggage in room, we have our lunch nearby the hotel, the famous "Cha Siu" and "Roast Duck" Rice.. but not delicious, maybe this is not the best in town.. HKD23 per plate, and add another HKD6 for drink, but I didn't order for the drink.. Seems like a bit expensive.. And so we have tried the "双皮奶" nearby the Nathan Road.. This is totally different from what we tried in KL, this is so delicious, and this for HKD20..

After lunch, we go back hotel to have a power nap.. 5 o'clock, Settle everything and prepare to go out, the most important thing in Hong Kong, is to have a Octopus Card, 八达通, the way we go to the MTR Station is so convenience, just nearby our hotel, 2 minutes walking to reach the station.. The deposit and the credit for one card is HKD150.. HKD50 deposit are refundable for returning the card and HKD7 needed for the procedure fees..

The first station to go is Mong Kok, 旺角, to walk around the 女人街 and 波鞋街.. This street is similar with our "Petaling Street", don't even know why I won't get cheated in KL but in Hong Kong.. Bought 3 local T-shirt with HKD100, what make me "beh tahan" was, the next next stall is selling 5 pieces HKD100.. Arrrr... I'm the "waterfish", but I didn't regret, the quality of the shirt is not as good as I bought.. Haha..

Is time to have our dinner, but we really don't know what to eat, so we passed by the restaurant, and saw this restaurant full of customers, so we decide to have our dinner here.. A shop for "面线", not bad.. I've order a "午餐肉面线", "炸猪扒", "新疆香草炸鸡翼", "蒙古猪脚"..

It's dessert time, and this shop is recommended by Lok Fun's Colleague, this shop is mainly for dessert, Mango.. Named "许留山".. Almost everywhere can find this shop.. The most recommended from this dessert shop is "芒果粒粒爽", "多芒亮晶晶", "芒果神冰", and "芒之恋".. Highly recommend to try it when in HK..

One of the most suprise thing was the Blue Magazine in Hong Kong, behind our hotel, there are 5 shops selling this kind of magazine and comic, so curious and we have bought one from the shop, where this is only the comic, Phin Phin has bought another with the real people.. How dare are we!! Haha.. (for those who want to have a look, please call me!!)
