Hong Kong: 21-26 October 2011

So I am back from Hong Kong.

Phew. It wasn't easy being a tour guide for a group of 9 people, including myself. This Hong Kong trip came along when my generous mum decided to bring all her nieces and nephew to Hong Kong and since she's not into the planning type, she kinda hired me as their tour guide.
I was gamed to it because it means free trip.

So I became the tour guide for 4 adults and 4 kids. Hectic stuff. Totally not easy at all. Guiding 8 people who didn't bother looking at maps and just followed me in crowded Hong Kong was no east feat.

But I had fun. Fun being around 4 silly teenagers. They made me laugh so much. Those 6 days 5 nights were really cousin bonding time for us.

22 Oct 2011 - Cousins and I at The Peak

I took them to most of the places I'd covered during my Hong Kong trip last year. But we went to some new eatery places and dai pai dong-s (will blog about them later).

This time we flew via Cathay Pacific, onlybecause it came out to be cheaper than Air Asia. So we got to watch movies and were served breakfast during our 3 1/2 flight there. Not that awesome for me because as usual I just popped an airsick pill and got dazed during the whole journey. I hate flying.

A few highlights of the trip.

a) The Peak - enjoyed the cooling weather and had a mini picnic up there with gorgeous views.

b) Was so happy to see both the young and old enjoyed Hong Kong Disneyland, almost as much as me!

c) Happy to watch the Disneyland's Flights of Fantasy Parade because there wasn't any during my last trip.
Min, this video is for you ;D

There was also the Halloween's Glow in the Dark Parade but I didn't like it much.

d) Happy to revisit Macau to take photos because the last time I was there, it was raining. I think Macau's buildings are really beautiful.
And I love love love St. Paul's Ruins.

24 Oct 2011 - At St Paul's Ruins

e) Celebrated Ah-Yee's birthday in Hong Kong with a delicious mango cake.

22 Oct 2011 - Birthday Girl with her cake

But most of all, I realized I miss my 2 babies - the small one and also the big one.
Miss them a lot.

Anyway, managed to do more shopping this time compared to my previous trip. Bought a pair of boots, an Esprit jeans jacket, 2 belts, iPhone cover, Clinique products and some other brands products. Came back Penang a happy girl. :)
