Totally random here. I was in Hong Kong longer than I planned to. The weather was very hot. Most of brand name stores were on sale. Tourists had to get in line just to get in Louis Vuitton store.

Victoria Harbour – checked
Well, yunno, it’s a harbour with many tall buildings. The crossing between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon by Star ferry had really great view. High-rises were everywhere that I missed the color of the green forest.
Hong Kong Disneyland – checked
Yes, I’m a Disney fan 🙂
Eh….that small thing is the Castle? That small corner is the Toy Story? It definitely can’t be compared to the one in Orlando, FL (aka Walt Disney World). It was so hot that I and my friend got in a taxi really late in the evening and by the time we arrived, it was so late that the lady at the ticket booth said, “Maaaam, may I remind you that we will be closing at 8:00pm today?”. I smiled warmly and proudly said, “Yes (I know).”
I remember finishing the whole park in the blink of an eye. I’ve been to the ones in Tokyo, France, Florida and LA, and was thinking that it couldn’t get smaller than the one in France but it did, though not sure why.
Shopping Mall(s) – checked
You can’t finish your trip to Hong Kong without filling up your luggage space. One happy piece of shopping for me was from the airport, a really beautiful pure silk blouse from my favorite brand, Shanghai Tang.
But really, no matter how great the trip was, there’s no place like home 🙂
