Hong Kong Day 3 & 4

for this time around, we'll focus on the 3rd and 4th day..
firstly, it's for our day at Ocean Park..
followed by Kowloon and Hong Kong Island!

Ocean Park tickets are slightly cheaper than Disneyland's..
it was HKD 208.. i don't know why they don't round it up..
and we had to buy a 2-way bus ticket too.
it was supposed to be colder than the day before..
so i wore this thicker jacket, turn out otherwise..
it was very sunny, probably because we were on a hill?

welcome to our home! =D

basically this is the Headland section of Ocean Park

most of the rides are similar to Genting's..
and i have to say the latter is way better and fun..
other than "The Dragon" roller coaster that turns 360! =D

Power 5 at the Pacific Pier..

i have no idea why Sally sesat so far away..

jelly fish.. great camera skills of mine! =P

another big tank of jelly fish..

but the Hongkies call them SEA JELLY.. whoa!

and we took the cable car to Lowland.. i have long hands?!

a picture with the Sea Lion mascot..

and with a Dolphin mascot 3 minutes later..

up next was a visit to the pandas!

look at this panda.. uber cutie!!!

with the big mama or papa..

so many little ones..

imitating the teeth-showing panda.. hehe..

passing by Winter's African Drum Beat show..

video
up next was the Whiskers & Friends Show! funny..

on the way out we saw them filming.. waving and smiling!

and at the fun fair there was this water-shooting game..

four monkeys.. just joking! *whacked*

i am on TV! "i like to move it move it~"

Madagascar 2 opened in Hong Kong cinemas a day earlier..

with the obvious enough sign..

one of the souvenir shops..

video
"Sea Dreams!" about how human and animals can live together

enjoying the beautiful sunset..

video
last but not least.. the spectacular "Ice Odyssey"!

my earliest dinner in 3 days at 9.30pm.. =)

the other 3 girls ordered this.. quite creative!

the next morning we woke up slightly later..
had breakfast at 大家乐, supposedly the cheapest food around!
before heading to Shatin by bus.. 1 hour journey or so..

some famous bridge in Hong Kong..

reminds you of Penang? or New York?

so while waiting for my aunt to arrive the shopping mall..
we went to Snoppy World just right outside..
and snapped quite some pictures.. lol..

Christmas decoration in the mall..

queuing up the bus..

the dancing queens.. =P

we are the cool people, erm, and dog..

boat ride for kids and adults! for free~

group picture with the Snoppy characters.. =)

later that day we went shopping in the whole sales area..
shopping took quite a lot of effort!
best buy for the day for all of us girls?
goose feather jacket for just HKD150!!! woo hoo~
the retail price on the price tag was a four-digit number!

since it was Christmas Eve, we need to experience it ourselves!
took the MTR down to Central..

saw the 30 feet Christmas tree..

made my wishes..

ate Hong Kong's famous Mister Softee ice-cream.. *slurps*

then we sat the tram.. just HKD 2 to any stop!
we saw groups of volunteers caroling on the streets..

video
and even a tram specially for Christmas carols!
*you may need to tilt your head*

off to dinner at some small shop in Hong Kong Island..

during a short walk.. we saw this: KFC Delivery!

we had some dessert too.. my stomach kinda exploded!

did more walking and came across this shop! haha..

the tallest building in Hong Kong.. how many floors?

and off we go.. at the ferry terminal back to Kowloon..

i forgot the name of the place we went on Christmas Eve..
it was jam-packed with people.. pretty scary..
there are no traffic jams in Hong Kong.. but human jam?
it's much worse.. streets and MTR are filled with people!

we did the craziest thing that day..
for one, there was like a group of 8 police..
i asked the policemen's permission first..
since some of them were cute.. hehe..

and we did this.. everybody was staring! =P

a lot of them ran away from the camera though..
but after we left, a lot of passerby queued up..
just to take pictures with them! haha..
i started a brand new trend for policemen.. modelling!

we were too lazy to squeeze back into the crowd for countdown..
no fireworks anyway, so we tried to avoid the mad rush!
it was just near impossible to get back in there.. meh~
so we had to walk pass countless MTR stations
before finding one that is open to the public!

on the way, there was some concert going on..
apparently the policeman says we need tickets to get in..
so we asked him who are the celebrities in there..
he replied in Cantonese..
"i think S.H.E. is there, i don't know the rest!"
usually S.H.E. and Fahrenheit are together, resulting this:
"then what about Wu Chun? is he in there?"
except that i called him "Mmm Jiunn".. haha..

anyway, for crazy thing number two, Cecilia started it!
we were on the MTR at midnight..
"10.. 9.. 8.. 7.. 6.. 5.. 4.. 3.. 2.. 1.."
"MERRY CHRISTMAS!" six of us shouted together..
then we started singing "We wish you a Merry Christmas"
like really loud and clapping our hands..

the MTR passengers just stared back at us..
as if we were some psycho or something..
totally no response.. akward silence.. =_____=
that is the result of going home earlier..
all the party-goers are still right outside!
ALAMAK!!!
