Talking about Hong Kong, I went there for a 1-week holiday back in January (before Chinese New Year. Don't go there during CNY!) The most memorable experience for me in HK? Yup, you got it right. Finding the precious toilets to ease yourself hahaha! Can you believe that their MTR (train) stations haven't a single toilet?! And you have to look at the station map to locate 'the nearest toilet' (with a star sign...i still remember hehe) What's worse...no matter how hard you plead to the shop owners to let you use their toilet, they won't allow it (even if you made a purchase of their stuff. i've asked!) Unless there is a wet market nearby whereby the toilets are for free (thankfully they're clean enough), you'd have to walk into a cafe and order yourself a cuppa before being able to use their toilet. If you happen to be at a boutique mall (no fittnig rooms here), there are toilets available but it's automatically locked from the inside. Only the boutique staff have the keys, so you'd have to wait for them in order to enter. Phew! Tiring, isn't it?
The hotel that we stayed - Anne Black YWCA in Kowloon. Not bad, RM140++ per night
The bright night streets of Kowloon
My high-school friend Dotty, who stays with her HK hubby over there :)
Ladies Market in Mongkok. Don't go here! It's just like Petaling Street..full with rude and pushy sellers
At the famous Jumbo Floating Restaurant. Only go there if you want to have the 'Jumbo Experience' cos the food's pretty expensive there :p Shark fin's soup can cost up to RM100 PER BOWL :p
The free ferry ride from the port to the floating restaurant
How the restaurant looks like during the day, without its colorful light bulbs :p
Saw this huge cemetary right in the middle of the city on the way back from Aberdeen to Central!
One of the boutique malls I'vebeen to - Island Beverly.You'll see it right after you exit the Central MTR station
McD in HK is quite tasty! Especially the chicken wings. And the french fries tasted more potato-ey :D
Sunset view between TST and Central. Took this from Harbour City (the whole mall is of luxury brands. Believe it! Poor meagre me can just do window shopping haha)
Took this while on the ferry from TST to Central. Much cheaper than if you take the underground train
Me at Victoria's Peak. Wanted to go during the night as the scenery will be even more magnificent with the night lights and all. But too bad we don't have the time. And it's hazy during the day, so we're not able to see much of the view :p
The Love Section at the Peak where people will post up love notes for their loved ones. Pretty sweet :)
But going down is so tiring! Its either the stairs or steep slope. So remember girls, don't wear heels if you plan to go here!
Night view of the skyscrapers. But that night the lights show wasn't that appealing though..wasn't quite impressed :p
The cable car ride to the Buddha and Monastery. The weather's so hazy everyday :p
Not for the faint-hearted...i think there's approximately 350 steps to reach the Buddha!
My favorite Fa Yuen Street...loads of cheap but good quality clothes :D
Met Goofy in his Chinese suit in Disneyland :D
The beautiful night scenery of Sleeping Beauty's Castle
A typical 'Lok Lok' foodie shop in the city :D
A typical dish (rice with omelette with veggies) which can cost up to RM12. and it's for 1 person but can be shared by 2! still...so mahal la :p
