Hong Kong - 21/05 to 24/05

Finally got down to setting up this blog after much procrastination.. heehee.. :) Yupz, and can make it just in time to share my HK trip :) Thank God for a good trip.. Quite interesting and exciting as well.. according to my travel kakis, covered much for 3.5 days.. :D They complain that I wake them up too early in the morning... :P

Let's see... Tsim Sha Tsui, Causeway Bay, Victoria Peak, Stanley Bay and of cos Mongkok.. :) Shopping at the street markets are the best.. Much cheaper than the super upmarket shopping centres and can bargain !! Not that it will make a lot of diff cos of the currency... but yah, it's all part of the fun lor.. :D Took a bus to Stanley Bay on Day 2, enjoyable ride though relatively long... passed Repulse Bay along the way and since it was Sunday, the beach was in full activity.. tons of pple, looks a bit like sentosa beach but with much more pple.. :P The Stanley markets are worth a trip.. lots of variety, things sold there are different from what you find at Mongkok.. more homely.. while Mongkok stuff are more fancy and dressy.

Went to Victoria Peak on Day 3.. We caught the tram up at abt late afternoon, to be able to catch the transient period and view the scenery in day and night... heehee.. ;P Realised that marche was closed for upgrading.. :( Had to settle for dinner at delifrance as the other restaurant with great dining view was exorbitant.. Nevertheless, we managed to catch wonderful views from the gallery.. :)

Victoria Peak City View - Night
To the most interesting part of the trip.. Mongkok.. the place is so full of energy in the night.. You can never feel tired when there.. :) Even at 12mn, it really doesn't feel like 12mn.. Must be due to the large amount of light energy that it is emitting !! Anyway, we went there every night.. Yupz, all 3 nights at Mongkok and it looked quite different every night.. ~strange~

On the second nite there, saw a whole street of illegal peddlers packing up and running away cos' one of them spotted the police.. I think.. Like in HK movies... Heehee.. Actually, you just need one joker to start packing and the whole street will follow suit.. :P
