Hong Kong Day 1 & 2

hey people! i have been M.I.A for the past week..
i went to Hong Kong with my friends:
high school mates Nan Zi, Sally and her sister, Christine..
not forgetting cousin Creamy and his girlfriend Cecilia..
let's call this trip:
"The Survival of NS Trainees in Hong Kong"!
all 6 of us completed our NS training at different series.. =P

what is the cheapest flight to Hong Kong?
none other than AirAsia of course!
our two-way ticket is still a four digit amount though..
we left the LCCT in the evening and arrived at night..

camwhoring with Sally on the plane..

buckled up on the bus from Hong Kong International Airport..

by the time we reached the condominium it was 10pm!
we had a big feast for our 过冬 dinner prepared by my aunt..

the next day we went to Hong Kong Disneyland!
which was just one MTR stop away from our area..
we reached there an hour after Disneyland open its doors!

we got there by Disneyland railway line.. =)

beautiful Disney characters and comfy sofas inside!

even the handrails are Mickey Mouse-shaped..

our adult tickets costs a hefty HKD 350!!!
but it was all worth it, and you'll soon find out why..

our first ride was the Space Mountain in Tommorowland!
it's a thrilling high-speed roller coaster journey in the dark..
you can only see the stars, not even your hands!
it was my very first time riding it..
the last two time i was at Disneyland, looong queue!
this time was only a 15-minute wait! fun~ fun~ fun~

the picture of our ride..
the first and only F.O.C snapping i was able to take!

next up was the Buzz Lightyear Astro Blasters ride..
all we need to do is help Buzz Lightyear save the universe
by shooting the evil Zurg and score points!

Christine and i fully prepared for our mission.. =D

we met some Disney characters when walking in Fantasyland..
Cinderella, Stich, Donald Duck, Goofy, Winnie the Pooh etc..
but we only managed to take pictures with a couple of them!

with Woody from Toy Story..

with Belle from Beauty and the Beast..
her smile is the same in EVERY picture and when she speaks!

Nan Zi with It's A Small World..
Disneyland newest attraction!

it's supposedly the "happiest cruise that ever sailed"..

they have cute and tiny sculptures that sings and dances!

"The Golden Mickeys" is a must watch!
it's a musical celebration of Disney's films..

so is the "Festival of the Lion King".. very nice!

don't miss "Mickey's PhilarMagic" too..
it's basically a magical 3D adventure, or so they say..

the lovebirds on "the Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh"

i finally took a picture with Minnie and Mickey!
the 45 minute wait was definitely worth it.. XD

this is my HKD 48 sweet and sour pork lunch,
eaten at 4.30pm.. very filling!
it's hot rice, salty black sauce and pickled vegetables..

for a meat-eater, i was bewildered when he ordered vegetables!

the "indigenous people" playing drums in Adventureland..

Christine and Nan Zi with the cruise and Tarzan's Treehouse..

we later went for the Jungle River Cruise ride..
"you may get wet" signs were everywhere!
but we did not visit Tarzan's home though.. looong queue!

in front of one of the souvenir shops..

"will you be my date to the ball?"

gazing to the air in front of "Cinderella Carousel"..

here comes "Dumbo the Flying Elephant"!


pictures from the "Let It Snow" parade..

driving "Autopia".. the electric car of the future!

this is how the Toy Story was produced.. the thing spins!
it can be found in the "Art of Animation"..

we have graduated from the Animation Academy.. ^^V
many thanks to our considerably good looking teacher, Eric!

at the cashier's.. to pay for the costly souvenirs..

Sleeping Beauty Castle in crystal form.. the cost is 5-digit!

Minnie and Mickey.. pure gold!

backdrop of the beautiful Christmas tree!
with the hologram viewer, tiny lights look like angels!

and it was snowing bubbles on Main Street, U.S.A.
but it was really cold that day.. like 9 degrees?

last but not least.. the final show of the day at 9pm..
fireworks display in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle..
a really wonderful sight to behold with Disney songs!
no video or pictures for this cos my camera died on me.. T__T

anyway, Disneyland is definitely a fairytale land..
because this is the only place in Hong Kong that
we, meaning the girls and i..
spotted quite a number of tall and handsome guys..
even the workers or performers there look good!
but most of them are already taken.. sad sad case..
good eye candy, especially during looong queues! haha..

so that's about our day at Disneyland..
i will blog about the modern world of Hong Kong soon! =)
