Hong Kong Day 2: Hong Kong Island

11 Aug 2007, Saturday

Day 2. All weather warnings had been cancelled though there was still no sight of Mr.Sun. There were still occasional showers.

It was a day out in the Hong Kong Island. My original plan was to go to Disneyland but it's been put off as I was still hoping for the miracle, the weather I mean. We visited Hong Kong Convention Centre, Lan Kwai Fong, Victoria Peak, Madame Taussad’s wax museum and shopped around Causeway Bay. Didn't take much photos today too though there are still enough photos that would make you sick of me. Hehehe. We stopped taking photos when it rained and only managed to quickly snapped a few during the "rain break"


Breakfast at Macau Restaurant

Thanks Misha for introducing this place in one of her posts. The portugese egg tarts there are heavenly. So good that we went back on another day for these irresistable portugese egg tarts.




Hong Kong Convention Centre










Here, my rambling....(I only realised I have many "lor" in my speech)




許留山

As recommended by Cheesie. Many thanks to her. This place is a must must visit. The best mango desserts I've ever tasted, their mango pudding is soooo rich and they have so many variaties. I am so in love with it that I still think about it everyday. They have branches everywhere, and I had been to 3 of them through out my trip. Still not enough, it's never enough for such a crazily deliciously heavenly desserts. On my god....I want to go back there!




Madame Taussad’s Wax Museum


She is soooooo pretty!




Not my height, don't be fooled by the numbers. It's all camera tricks. I ain't that tall






Rick's favourite is this one with Leon Lai. He says the pose is not as boring......



My favourite? It has to be this one......with ANDY LAU!!

I don't know lar, I think both our poses and facial expressions very well matched. Andy was the more popular one on the night, lots of people surrounding him waiting to take picture. I was quite "pai seh" posing as people all watching while they were waiting. Hehehehe


Shopping around in the souvernir shop before leaving


The Dinner

We were so tired that we had takeaway in our room.

Totally loved the pics! And oh, the thing about Macau reminded me of the various developments in that country with regards to the gaming industry. Indeed, money is rolling there!
