Okay, this entry is taking quite a large amount of my time just to write it so I think i'm gonna split it into two parts. Too much pictures btw, sucking my energy just to compile them to save my trouble of uploading so many pictures.. haha.

So, day 1..

Went to visit Grandmum first and collect angbaos, then went over to the airport straight with the luggages. Checked in and all, boarded the plane and watched movies.. The Dutchess was good. Had originally wanted to catch it in the theaters but oh well. Hahah, I like Keira Knightly in such "royalty" shows, she can play it off well. :D haha.

Landed, and Eldest Aunt chartered a bus to take us to our hotel, which was at Jordan station. Quite convenient since our hotel was just on top of the station, and linked to a shopping mall as well. heehee. Rooms were pretty small, but comfortable still. Hah. Oh, weather in hong kong was really temperamental. Really cold during the night and early morning, but once the sun's out, pretty much okay. haha.

And basically, the routine for the 6 days in HongKong was wake up and meet the family at 9am, go eat breakfast at some cha can teng (tea cafe?) then start of the madness. Shopping, touring, EAT EAT EAT, all the way to 12mn. Hah, then go back hotel sleep, and then the next day begins. Lol. The amount that we walked at the end of the whole total 6 days.. amazes everyone okay. Lol. I'm equally amazed at everyone's ability to walk and shop. Haha. Besides, since it was a free & easy trip, we took public transport and walking to the extent I think I can figure my way on my own there already. Lol

So anyway, we reached HK at around evening already, so had dinner then went to Miao Jie/Nan Ren Jie and then walk all the way to Nu Ren Jie to shop and then back to hotel.. yep. (:

Dinner for the day

Nu Ren Jie

Youngest Aunt & Uncle

Please excuse the retarded expressions. Lol.

Day 2.
After breakfast, went to the famous temple there (Feng Che Miao?) with the help of subway, and then took pictures while madly absorbing the incense smoke there... hahaha. Then to shop. UhUh. I think we went to Kowloon Wan and Central to check out the megastores. Got H&M, blah blah the usual branded ones lah. Lol. Went to Stars Avenue (Xing Guang Da Dao) to supposedly check out the fireworks display Hong Kong was supposed to have on the 2nd day of CNY but unfortunately it was ultra packed with humans so we walked to Tsim Tsa Tsui in the end, and then back to hotel.

@ Breakfast

Save The Pets!


Feng Che Miao

Random shots. (:

ENLARGE THIS AND READ, it's quite entertaining and funny! haha.


Too much walking can make you go crazy. Lol. We had to detour many many rounds just to get over to the other side of the street due to the blocked roads and traffic for the fireworks display. Gosh. Tired + Cold + Hungry = Crazy. Haha.

Day 3.
Was supposed to go Lamma Island but because we heard that there wasn't much things there to be seen since its CNY period, thus plans were scrapped and changed to Sai Kung instead. There, they have plenty of FRESH SEAFOOD! :D Haha, took train then took a special bus to the place. It's near sea (duh) and kinda of a small port. Hah, have their own amenities as well, like a small town. So we had awesome seafood there, like really awesome seafood. Hahaha, the price was actually considered much cheaper compared to singapore if you took the difference between the quality & quantity we ordered. Lol. (:

Family photo!

Ponyo! :D

Sai Kung

Haha, He fell sideways into the water after that, SEE. Aye. Try to act pro.. hahaha. Thankfully, only sideways..

(: In a bid to capture the sunlight but ah well....

Cool dog. Lol, HK has lotsa dogs actually. I think out of 10 families, 6 of them own dogs. Lol. Very adorable and cute ones too!

Ultra fresh seafood on board!

Went to Stars Avenue again, this time lesser people so we could walk. They have "lights show" which the buildings' lights of the HongKong landscape will have some sort of show/performance for the audience that are on the avenue and also, the handprint thingy lah. Hah. Went to Tsim Tsa Tsui again thereafter and walked back to Hotel. Lol.

Day 4.
Da Yu Shan was the main highlight. Had to take train to the end stop of one of the lines, and take cablecar up to Da Yu Shan. The famous attraction of the place was the huge buddha statue that could be seen up up up high on the cablecars. The cablecars are damn cool, we went up the height of total of 3 mountains, with each mountain higher and higher. Lol. Speechless, really. Hahaha.

Dad, Mum, Brother and some of the relatives went up the 200 steps to the statue there to take pictures while I stayed below with my eldest Aunt and 2 cousins to check out the stores they had. Then we took cable car back to the lower ground, and went into this shopping mall which was basically a factory outlet for most brands like Nike, Adidas, Club 21, Armani etc etc. Lol. Oh, and Espirit. The Espirits at Hong Kong are really cheap though, especially the outlets. They have like damn nice tee shirts at just (lowest) 10SGD. Haha, I swear I'm going back for more in March. Heehee. :D

Met up with my cousins and their parents since they went on to Disneyland before that, then we had dinner and shop shop shop again before back to hotel!

Day 5.
Went to ShenZhen for shopping and then back to Tsim Tsa Tsui Ferry terminal to wait for my other 2 cousins that were joining us for 2 nights at HK and then together to Macau. :D:D:D Hahahaha. Some of them went back to hotel so only a couple of us went to pick them up. Were quite early so we decided to eat desert and wait for them. :D

Shen Zhen



Day 6.
Last day of Hongkong before we go over to Macau! :D Revisited the some of the shopping malls to get whatever we feel like and yep, mostly shopping the entire day. To some warehouse place for branded goods in the morning, then the outlets mall again where I got really alot of stuff. Hahaha! Nu Ren Jie and then we all retired pretty early to the hotel to pack stuff and get a good rest. (:

Ah okay, will stop here. That's all for the HongKong part, will continue the Macau one some other day. (:
