Since the three musketeers were so busy and caught up with their work, they only did a brief planning using a shared online google document. With google, collaborative travel planning was made so much easier!
So, after a smooth flight on Jetstar, they went through this seamless arrival process. Within 10 minutes after immigration checks and luggage collection, they hopped right away into the limousine with a private chauffeur that drove them all the way to Metropark Kowloon. They were suppose to be sitting on a hotel shuttle bus that would fetch them from the airport to the hotel but luck was on their side! They had a free vehicle upgrade to a limo!
Though it isn’t a celebrity-type of limo, the leather seats are ultra comfy where you can have free Wi-Fi access to connect with the world. This is a instagram-worthy piece of news!
Since it was the bird flu season, why not use the excess N95 masks you’ve bought during the Great Haze that left Singapore shrouded in smoke?
It’s a pretty neat hotel with well-maintained facilities. And Deenise is saying this not because they gave her chocolate mints as a sweet treat before bedtime. But really, what’s there to complain with the comfortable beds and soft duvets that gave each of them a good night’s sleep?
They planted their feet in the most frequented shopping centre in Mong Kok which is well-known among fellow Singaporean shopaholics.
But their stomachs were growling so they scanned around the area for food and spotted a queue right outside Tsui Wah restaurant.
Eunice was salivating as she gobbles up the plate of Chinese-style crispy noodles. This is one musketeer who was so in love with noodles – especially crispy ones.
5 days in Hong Kong goes by really quickly. On our second day, we went for a traditional Hong Kong breakfast at a Cha Cheng Teng (or tea house) that is a stone throw away from our hotel. Hong Kongers usually have buns stuffed with an omelette, pork or ham and a cup of milk tea or coffee. It’s a simple breakfast affair in Hong Kong.
Some sightseeing would make the trip a little more meaningful and memorable. It’s probably one of those undiscovered attractions in Hong Kong. This is Noah’s ark, where the biblical story is retold once again with monuments of today and the past.
Besides the fascinating exhibition about how the remnants of Noah’s ark was found at Mount Ararat, there were also exhibition spaces showcasing how life has flourished on earth.You could even catch a glimpse of several species of the animals and insects like spiders and worms.
There’s also this really cool machine that measures the amount of carbon,water and minerals found in your body and then tags a price to how much you are worth.
Noah’s Ark is far off from the city area, located in Ma Wan, a small island on its own which is linked to Lantau island by Tsing Ma bridge.
The three musketeers had their very first Hong Kong Dim Sum at Yi Dian Xin ( 一点心 ). It was one of the best dim sum they had thus far during this trip to Hong Kong.
On Day 3, they once again brave the cold showers and went in search for the much raved about Hong Kong Cafe called Lan Fong Yuen. Deenise wasn’t too fond of the food but this place was worth visiting for it’s ambience.
In the evening, they headed down to the night market along causeway bay before heading to Yung Kee Restaurant to meet Eunice’s ex-schoolmate, Anna.
