I'm Back!!

Helloooo all :)
Am back from my break.... hope you guys didn't miss me too much? :p
Thanks Mr Chardonnay for filling in when I was away, hope you enjoyed this short stint as guest writer :).
Have been busy cleaning and clearing my shall just post a few pictures on the food and sights in HK. Was away to Hong Kong for 9 days..yes, the same reaction I get from most of my friends are What?!? 9 days in Hong Kong? What is there to do for 9 days?
Especially when I have been to Hong Kong before, some of my friends think I'm just wasting time in HK..You think so?
Hahaha..and no, I didnt shop myself broke :p

Well, there's more than just shopping in Hong Kong......
Of course there's good food..

And more good food

My good friend SF (my ex hand model for my food pictures :p), brought us for a hiking trail up to Victoria peak....

Very scenic and enjoyable trail. Sort of a surprise that we are so close to nature staying in the middle of Central! :)

Spent nearly a day at Lantau..
Took a cable ride up to view Tian Tan Buddha, walked around and went to Citygate for shopping (ladies, this place is factory outlet for many brands...Polo RL, Esprit, Club 21, Timberland, Nike, Adidas, Puma, Quicksilver, Joy&Peace, Sisley name a few). Located just next to Tung Chung station.

And of course getting immersed in the sea of people busy shopping, shopping and shopping..At Causeway Bay, Tsim Sha Tsui, Mongkok etc. Not forgetting the famous Victoria Harbour at night for the light and sound show, while strolling along Avenue of Stars.

A day trip to Macau for a change of environment....

From the packed-with-tourist Senado Square, we walked along the old street leading to Ruins of the Church of St Paul while sampling all the local fare. A further climb up to Monte Fort for a view of Macau. Popped over to Venetian to catch the jaw dropping act in Cirque while finding the replica of Venice rather impressive..

Decided to spend a day at Hong Kong Disneyland as it's the month of Halloween.... Disneyland had the Halloween special hence there were glow in the dark parade, the shops were lighted in eerie blue with jack's face lingering on the shop's facade. Even Sleeping Beauty's castle was 'covered' with spider webs. Hehehe. Very nice.

So, that's what I did during my time in Hong Kong :). Not too packed, just nice eh? Shall post on the food I had in Hong Kong soon, be patient! :p

its nice to enjoy a place slowly instead of rushing thru it..especially since hk is already a fast paced place as it stands..imagine fast forwarding a fast place!..thats crazily fast!

oh dear, Ed, i just noticed your inquiry! guess i'm too late? for value for money but good location, would be Tsim Sha Tsui area. i stayed at kimberley hotel before which was ok. i like staying in central, but dont think there's average hotels there, only 5 stars. central's not too busy at night, and can hang out at soho/ LKF after a long day, which is lovely.
