Fun in Hong Kong : Day 1

Monday, October 21, 2013
A month back, on September 20th, I was in Hong Kong for a well-deserved graduation trip with my sister & relatives. The best thing about this trip? It's sponsored by my sister as a graduation gift for me :D I am one lucky girl! :D 


Took an early morning flight to HK. The flight took us about 5 hours to reach.

Doing what girls do best in the plane. Camwhore! LOL 

Bear with me, I promise it will just be a few photos haha! :P

Okay la. Just 5. Not too much right? haha!

Reached the airport around 1pm & boarded the bus to Mong Kok, where we are staying :)


While waiting for the owner of the apartment we rented to meet us :)


After waiting for a while, the apartment owner finally arrived. Imagine having to walk all the way through the busy streets of Mong Kok with our luggages. People everywhere. Limited space to move. Sweating profusely. Madness. 


The apartment entrance. Looks kinda creepy at first haha! Checked in our apartment & had a quick chat with the owner. The owner was actually quite handsome *coughs* lol 


The apartment was clean & decent but definitely too small to fit all 7 of us + our luggages. Barely had any walking space after putting our luggages :O Typical HK house I guess. Anyway, was pretty satisfied as it was much cheaper compared to the hotels + they provide free wifi + shops, restaurants & MTR station were all nearby :)


Was feeling super hungry by the time we settled everything & randomly searched for a nearby stall to eat. Some of us ordered beef noodles & some, wanton noodles with a plate of greens & crispy fried fish skin as side dishes. The wantons were super huge & comes with prawns compared to the ones in Malaysia. Although it costs RM10++ per bowl, it was worth it as the portion size was quite big for their "small" size

After lunch, we boarded the MTR to Tsim Tsa Tsui. Visited the Avenue of Stars. Of cause, there were tourists everywhere. You pretty much had to wait for your turn to take photos with the famous statues or maybe I should say "grab the spot as quickly as you can" cause some would just barge in without waiting for their turn -.-


The famous Bruce Lee statue :D 





Jackie Chan hand prints! Typical tourist photo haha!


Fringe was very oily & ugly that day as I was basically sweating non-stop throughout the day :( The weather feels just like Malaysia D:




HK skyline view during the day.


As evening approaches...


Sunset...




As the night falls, lights lit up....


Breathtaking night view ♥



Waited till 8pm to watch the Symphony of Lights show along Victoria Harbour. Super super love the night view! So glad I managed to capture this photo. I feel a sense of accomplishment! lol :D 

Boarded the MTR to Jordan next. Had dinner & visited Temple Street Market.



Roast Goose.


Forgot what this dish is called but it tasted like steamed glutinous rice.


Board the MTR again back to Mong Kok & got lost for a while searching for the way back to our apartment. Everywhere just looks the same! >.< Thank God we met a good local uncle who was kind enough to show us the way :) 

And that's bring us to the end of Day 1 :)

Loving September :)

Sunday, October 13, 2013
September had been a really good month. Events after events piling up. Cousin Jason's wedding (the wedding day itself + 2 wedding dinners), another cousin, Jayden's 1st birthday celebration & my long awaited Hong Kong trip! :D I cannot emphasize how much I love family gatherings. Even if it's something quick & simple meet-up for tea. Truly blessed to be in a closed-knit family :)

With all the events, it means I get to use my newly bought semi-pro camera to practice my photography skills (still a beginner haha). Photography have become one of my hobby now :D So if you have any events and need a photographer, maybe you can consider me *ahem* (if you don't mind letting me practice my skills Haha!). It's impossible to upload every single photo I took so here's a sneak peek of some from every event! :D

Jason & Karen's Wedding
