Since day 1 we arrived quite late and all sleep late, we all woke up a bit late. After shower the boys and get them drink milk then we start our 1st day "tour". Just before we left the room, hub passed me something, it's a pressie, i was wondering who give me pressie, then i only realise the day is 05.05, our 12 anniversary! I remember earlier, but on the actual day, i totally forgot.
a Fossil Charm Watch
It's really suprise, i never expect to receive any gift. :) Thanks hub for the lovely watch.
First day itinerary, we already plan to go Stanley Market and The Peak, the place we missed out last year, as we don't have enough time. Hub is a "adventurous" person, he like to take bus, MTR and walk and walk and more walk. He is our "tour guide", he look at the map and we just follow.First place we went is Stanley Market, we took MTR from our hotel till Central. From there we walk to the main bus terminal and took bus to Stanley market. The bus ride around 30 - 40 mins, in between it stop at many places.
Here is Stanley Market! Immediately, we look for a place for brunch, me and hub didn't have any breakfast. We saw this Stanley Restaurant, we walk in and had our brunch. It is so packed in the restaurant, mostly are Hkers, the local people having their lunch. We even have to share table with other people. We order some dishes and rice for our brunch, and seeing most patrons they order rice lunch, which is one dish with rice, and the portion of the rice really "scary" SO HUGE!
this "wan tan" soup is very yummy, the prawns inside the "wan tan" very fresh and big. We had two bowls of wan tan soup.
don't know what 'brinjal" dish, and there is one more dish, chicken with lemon sauce, we forgot to take picture.
After having our brunch, we walk around and take pictures and do some shopping. Although, this is tourist spot, to me the price still reasonable. I even told the boss, "i am tourist, but we are not "mat salleh" don't slaughter me!!" hahahhaha..some of the shop they will give you discount, some they will told you it is fixed price. Look at the shop below selling kids stuff, i cannot control myself and bought some!!
don't ask me why Fearles had that cheeky face, lately he like to take pictures with lots expression!! *shake head*
while mummy shopping, father and son cam-whoring!
this is the main street of Stanley Market, a lot pub and restaurant. We didn't dine here, just take some picture then we off to The Peak.
Here we are at The Peak, foggy, look cold but it's not cold at all. hahhahahhahah
mummy done her shopping at Stanley Market, now is the boys playing time, let them enjoy the playground while me and hub cam-whoring around there (more pictures in FB). After the boys "waste" some energy there, we head to Mcd to have our afternoon tea. We didn't know opposite The Peak Galleria got more fancy restaurant, where we can have "romantic" tea break and oversee the HK view.
here is my grilled chicken, Malaysia don't have this. This is yummy!!
that 45 degree building, inside there is a lot nice restaurant, oversee the Hong Kong, very nice scenery.
taking escalator up to the top to have the better view.
a family picture...
me try to act cool, actually my both legs wobbly!! I feel scared when i stand near the clear glass and look down!!
Fearles not scare at all, he even sit near the glass there..
We didn't go Madame Tussauds Wax Museum, thinking the boys won't enjoy seeing all the wax people in there and just taking picture. Since Bruce Lee is at the entrance, we took a picture with Bruce Lee. After coming home, i look through the picture and saw this picture, can you spot what is wrong? ------------------------------------------------------> Did you see where Cruz Lee put his hands on Bruce Lee???? I think he is wondering, why so many people taking with this guy and this guy not moving at all and he look so real, so "accidently" he just "rest" his hand on "it"! LOL!!!
We took the tram down to the foot hill, then took the bus to Star Ferry then took the Ferry to Kowloon. We are joining a night tour at 7pm, and it depart from Avenue of Star.
me and the boys in the tram
while walking to take the Ferry, we saw this ice-cream car, the boys want to have some ice cream, we have a rest and let the boys had some ice-cream. Very soft and yummy.
The boys are excited, they took airplane, bus, train, taxi and now boat/ferry!!!
Avenue of Star, last year we were here, so i am not going to post a lot pictures here, you can see last year post here...
kill some time here while waiting for our night tour start at 7pm. What else? Cam-whoring again lo!! more pictures can view in FB. We walk from one end to the other end of Avenue of Star, if you been there, you will know what i mean and how long it is!! My legs are so painful and nearly "broke".
this is the night tour bus we took. I think is RM100 or RM150 per person, for one hour tour, kids they don't charge us. We bought the package while we are at The Peak, they are having some promo, so that is the special price.
the tour bus stop at certain spot and let us took the nice view.
then it round the city centre and you can listen to the introduction through the ear phone, it will explain to you where is where, ladies street, food street, jade street, temple street and a lot more places. It's quite worth it, no need to walk a lot and you can see all.
famous ladies street!!
The Peninsula Hotel...
After the tour, when we stop at Avenue of Star, it was 8pm, that start the light of symphony, so we stay back a while and look at the light again. After the light of symphony, we walk around and look for some food. Thought want to have some Japanese food as celebration of the anniversary, those good one and yummy one i think all is long queue. You know, we saw one restaurant, the queue is long till everyone is sitting on the stairs and wait for their number!!!!! End up we just stop by one small "char chan teng" and have some simple food, all of us are tired and hungry, after walking for the whole day. This is our meal......
roast duck ...this is not roast goose. :)
some noodles and fried rice and wan tan soup again!!
While on the way walk back to our hotel from the MTR station, we passed by temple street, and saw these two cute JAWs bags, we bought it for the boys and ask them to carry back to the hotel.
That is our 2nd day, fully utilize the time!! Can't post too many pictures here, there are more pictures in FB.
