Read an entry about Hong Kong trip day 1 here.
Let's me start the second day in Hongkong by a bright and sunny morning. So, after a heavy drinking night until 6am in the morning, all of us (except me because i didn't drink much) were totally knocked off. We set 11am for breakfast but none of them could make it, I was still the most punctual one, came down to the lobby at 11am sharp while the rest was still sleeping. Couldn't want to wait for them any longer, I decided to walk around and to find something to eat.
Here are some of very simply shots I took along the way
11am on Saturday seemed still early for Hongkong, the street was still very quiet.
One photo for our hotel.
Beautiful weather in the weekend. The only problem: it was too hot.
The most comfortable shoes ever with crystal :D
Hotel lobby! Nice and clean
Now, the hotel looks even better with a model in it, hehehe.
I can imagine business in Hongkong is very competitive. You can tell from all the advertisement stickers fighting for their space on the wall
Walking to HongKong Statue Square by chance, it's so peaceful and clean. Many tourists were around that time too and taking photos.
Sir Thomas Jackson statue, I found his name on Google so don't blame me if Im wrong
Me and my self-camwhoring skill :D
Didn't I say it's beautiful earlier? I did.
Branded shops are every where. But we weren't looking for branded stuffs, we looked for a famous dim sum restaurant that was recommended by many people.
And from the Statue Square, we walked acrossed the street, crossed this beautiful bridge
stood there for a while for a photo, enjoyed the wind and continued walking to the other side
It was another shopping mall again, not huge but big enough to make us confused.
and we passed by HongKong General Post Office.
went to the other building opposite General Post Office
walked down to another MTR entrance which I didn't know what MTR it was because I couldn't see the name
but I saw a damn super tall building in the middle of no where. I stopped to snap a candid photo, it turned up like that.
And we kept walking around and around, even passed by a ROM (Registered of Marriage) hall, many couple were registering their marriage, went through a port and slowly we found...
this place (after more than 1 hour walking under hot sun)
What on earth were these people doing here at this hour (12 noon)?
They were actually queuing for the restaurant to open. The foods must be damn good, I bet. I actually wanted to give up half way because of the heat, long hour walking and I was hungry, I was thinking "WTF! Just a dim sum, almost every restaurants has, why should I"
But at the end of the meal, I thought "Seriously! Worth my walking, sweating and waiting time"
We were lucky enough to have our table right after entering the restaurant
While waiting for the foods and there are 2 things I usually do: checking my phone or taking my photos, lolz. *bad habit*
Fresh flowers for a brand new day
Fried pork bun. Super yummy to the max.
Fried tauhu, I guess?
Woots! My favorite dish: chicken claws. Seriously! I have been trying chicken claws at many different restaurants in Singapore and Malaysia, but this was probably still the best dish I've ever tried.
I ate them all :D and when since I came back Singapore, I am still missing the foods there. :( Sad to say, some Hongkong restaurants here can't bring the same quality/ standard of the foods there :(
After eating so much like a pig, I have no energy or ability to walk back all the way. I decided to get a train since it's just right underground
By the time I finished my brunch, it was almost 2pm, my drunken friends have just started their day. They called me and I caught up with them at Harbour City.
artistic graffiti on the wall.
Does it photo remind you of HongKong in 1997? :D
We stayed in Harbour city for a short while as I didn't intend to shop for some branded stuffs in Hongkong because to me everywhere is the same. I find myself enjoying more in Street Market, that's when you see the real life of a city.
On the way back hotel, I, Liya and Joey decided to visit one of the wholesales shopping center at Lai Chi Kok. That was my most looking forward thing to do in here
From left to right: Liya, Joey and me at HongKong Fashion City within HongKong Industrial Center.
Took a candid shot of Liya with the colorful signboard :D
I was disappointed when I first stepped in because It's appeared to be so quiet and not happening at all. What could I buy here?
The moment I stepped inside. WOW! I got lost! Super damn chaos, crowded and huge.
Many blink and pink stuffs are here too. Heaven! <3
Definitely loved this place! But too bad, I could only do a rapid shopping (2hours) coz I had to go to Victoria Peak at night. Nevertheless, I managed to bring back home 5 pieces of top and dresses. Talk about shopping power!
One of my best buy items is:
Shoes for my nephew- Baby East! How cute and adorable :D
also a panda for him.
and a Crystal iPhone casing for me. :D Super blink
That's how I spent my 2nd day in HongKong, rushing but very full-filing and happy. Stay tuned for the day 3 and guess what did I do on the last day in HongKong? I'll reveal soon.
