Hong Kong Day 4: Ocean Park

It was the best day (weather wise) of our holiday. Although it was muggy, there was no sight of a rain drop till late evening. The best we could hope for, really. I came with missions of meeting the pandas and riding on the infamous ABYSS Turbo Drop. But sad to report, I missed out on one. Sigh!

Anyway, Apart from the same frustrations I encountered in Disneyland i.e. the shoving, cutting queues and all, it was a day full of fun and excitements.

Giant Panda Habitat

They've got 4 cuties there, An An, Jia Jia, Ying Ying and Le Le. An An and Jia Jia are the old folks while Ying Ying and Le Le the newly added 2 year-old. When we were there, Jia Jia, Ying Ying and Le Le slept like a pig, oops, I mean slept like a panda. An An then just keep eating non-stop. SOOOOOO CUTE can melt! I just wanna hug them tight tight!

Liwan said...

hahaha those pandas are really so cute can melt!! But how do you differentiate them apart? You made me want to go HK right now :(

david santos said...

Thanks for posting, Doreen! All very, very good.

Have a good week

Misha said...

jiejie doreen ...

good morning to you.. need ur help. can you teach me how to collate the photos .. ie like the one that you posted ie yung kee that has 4 photos .. ie the century egg, pigeon, roast goose and veges.

mum and myself went to photobucket but cannot find where to collate the photos.

please help. thank you!

Doreen said...

liwan:
I don't know how to tell the difference actually. AnAn and Jia Jia live separately in their own cell, and YingYing & LeLe live together in another cell. Their names are printed on the glass of their cell. That's how I know. If all 4 of them live together in one cell, hell know which is which. Hehehe

david santos:
You're welcome! Thanks for dropping by. (^_^)

misha:
Hi Misha. Ar...those photos. Photobucket at the moment cannot collate the photos like that unfortunately. I used the software Photoshop to put the photos together. Pretty manual work. :(

zewt said...

hey... could u drop me a mail at zewtness(at)gmail.com?

Doreen said...

chen:
No, the pandas not smelly. Er....actually hor, I dunno lah. They're contained in a fully glass framed area, so cannot smell. I'm not surprise they're smelly and dirty. Animal nature mah. Hehehehe

winn:
Oh, you're not a fan of roller coaster ar, not many ppl like it lor. Too fast makes ppl dizzy only. Hehehe

mistipurple:
Misti, no more egg tart left liao. Soli! Chocolate want? Ice-cream leh?

zewt:
Just did! (^_^)

eastcoastlife said...

I'm waiting for your post on what you shopped/ bought. Anything unique. Quick quick.... I'm going to HK! hehehe....

Doreen said...

eastcoastlife:
Yay, you're going to HK? Soli wor, I actually didn't buy much so couldn't share more lor.

If you're into designer stuff, then try Pacific Place at Admiralty MTR exit.

Or go to Tung Chung MTR mall for Esprit, nike, adidas, bossini etc factory outlets.

When you off to HK?
