香港旅之一: Our Journey To Hong Kong Day 1

27th June 2011- Chloe was burning up some fever > 37.2deg, we were panic and we may have to cancel the trip if Chloe is not getting better.  Next early morning (3a.m.), I gave her fever reducer and hope so she would not be having fever.

On 28th June 2011, Hubby, Chloe and parents flew off to Hong Kong! Our flight was at 7.10 in the morning so we had to be at the airport at 510am. Felt relieved, Chloe temperature was at 36.8deg, she is getting excited and happy in the airport. She kept telling me- Chloe want aero plane!!   We were having breakfast at McD, LCCT. Soon after, we had to board the plane.

We arrived at the Hong Kong International Airport about 11am. After clearing the customs and immigrations, first off purchased the Airport Express ticket, from HKIA to Kowloon Station, adult fare is HKD$90, and also Octopus Card for 7 of us. Octopus Card is an electronic money card which you can pick up for 100HKD and charge up as needed. We use the card to get around on the subway during our stay in HK.

It only 20 minutes travel time from HKIA to Kowloon station. Kowloon station is situated in the Tsim Sha Tsui area. Took cab from station to hotel, we had booked a standard room in “Hotel Stanford” in Mongkok Area. Hotel Stanford is strategically located near the Mongkok MTR station which is also very near to the Ladies market (女人街), tourist attraction. Checked in to Hotel about 1245pm, and the room was pretty comfortable.  After settling down at the hotel,. So we headed for our lunch at Kam Wah Café @ Prince Edward. It started raining on our way to the café.

We will be visiting The Peak ( this evening. We purchased the combo tickets for the tram up to the peak and Madame Tussauds (伦敦杜沙夫人腊像馆), didn’t go for Sky Terrance because it was raining. We queue up for the ride J AS the tram move slowly and steeply up to the top, we able to view the beautiful city skyline of Hong Kong. Felt dizzy when I was in the tram. L

We visited the Madame Tussauds which exhibits over 100 local and international celebrity wax figures. You can meet your SUPERSTARs there!!! We have chance to take photos with our favourite idols. Hubby was busy snapping pictures while I were busy chasing Chloe in the center. Chloe also took photos with few celebrities Jwe also managed to buy the HK Disneyland ticket here (HKD350/adult). Didn’t stay long at the peak as it was kinda crowded and cold after the rain, so we went for dinner instead…

We didn’t want to take the tram back down so we decided to take shuttle bus (No 15) from The Peak back to Central MTR Station. The road is curvy, lots of bends. We headed back to Mongkok area for dinner @ Fuk Kee Congee. Food served wasn’t very cheap as well. After dinner, we walked back to hotel which is only about 10 minutes walk. The night scene of HK with lots of Huge billboards and the whole city is full of lights and laser shows.
