Hotel: Mingle By The Park
This is my first trip to Hong Kong. Guess what? I flew there all alone! Knowing that Hong Kong is a cosmopolitan city, I didn't think I will have much problems moving around. And I was right. I flew in via Cathay Pacific. Being my first trip on top of being alone, I try to play safe. Before we flew, I saw the worker refueling the plane. Food was the plane was good! The shrimps were yummy!!! Upon reaching HKIA, I took the Airport Express to Hong Kong station. Do note that the cost of single journey is HK$100. So please remember to top up your Octopus card.
新豐記魚蛋牛什大王 for my fishball noodles. I really like it alot that in the few days, I ate quite a few bowls. Oh...I saw some Hello Kitty Chinese New Year deco along Central station. So cute!
My visit to Disneyland Hong Kong was not really satisfying despite the
fact that this is my first trip to a Disneyland regardless of which
country it is in. I paid HK$399 for single day entry. The price
certainly didn't correspond to the size of the park. I only manage to catch the Lion King show and not much activities coz most of them requires me to queue for a long time.
Tsim Chai Kee Noodle) that supposedly serve great tasting wanton mee. We had to share tables with strangers but my colleagues told me that it's a norm in Hong Kong to share tables. After lunch, we had herbal tea and again according to my colleagues, people in Hong Kong never fail to have a cup of herbal tea after meals. Walked pass mid-level on our way back to office. The overhead bridge escalator thingie is really long.
After a good chat with colleagues in the office, I headed for The Peak. Bought the Peak Tram ticket + Madame Tussauds combo tickets for HK$225 (return trip). It was slanted all the way up. Quite difficult to stand. Good thing I got a seat. When I got there, I shopped around the place awhile before heading into Madame Tussauds. Saw many life like famous people in there and of course, I took alot of photos. Decided to head for sky terrace for some photos. Because I didn't purchase it together with the combo, I got it separately...can't remember how much though. Taking pics was a challenge with a flimsy tripod because it's quite windy up there and my tripod kept swaying. When it's time to go back, I had to fight with the crowd again. It was a torture....even though the train comes in rather short intervals...the amount of people waiting for it is hilarious!
