Hong Kong Day 1

Finally, after 1hour of delay from JetStar Asia (no complaints for the kind of price we paid tot =) ),
We arrived back to Singapore @ 1am. Reached home @ 2am. And slept till 7am before I went for my 1st class @ 8am. Missed the kiddos so much....

And yes, finally have time to blog about our Hong Kong trip Day 1! Haha....

The view from the top while on our way to Hong Kong.

Instead of checking into our Hotel, we went for Shopping @ CityGate outlets! Haha.... In Hong Kong, it's just Shopping and eating! (买东西,吃东西) !!

After our "modest" shopping @ CityGate, we headed to Ngong Ping 360 where we took the crystal cable car to visit the Big Buddha!

Inside the Crystal cable car... Right below us we could see the sea!!

The Big Buddha from the cable car...

We'r so happy that we've reach Ngong Ping Village! Cause... It means...

More food!!! Yummy!!!

This tree is called the Bodhi Tree where Buddha sat under when he reached he's enlightenment.. It's said that wishes come true if you pray hard enough... =)

Monkey-ing around... I love to pose around.. =p

At the gate before reaching the Big Buddha. Look so taiwanese here! Hee....
At the foot of the Big Buddha before we ascend up using our legs! Climbing! Hee... And this shall marks the beginning of our 1st Big Walk...
The magnificsent Buddha. This is one of those spots where the soul and heart come to peace...
And yes, just before we leave... We went for a walk with Buddha to find out more about the religion. =)
We decided to try a different mode of transport back to Tung Chung. So, we decided to take Bus 23. And boy, it was freezing out there!!!!
After a quick check in to our hotel (Thanks Linda for introducing us the hotel!!!), we headed out to MongKok for the ever so famous n smelly Beancurd! YUmmy!!!!!!!!!! I love Smelly Beancurd! YUmmmy Yummy!!!!

If you think Smelly Beancurd can satisfy the taste buds of Teacher Jerry, you are so wrong! Hahaha... From Mong Kok, we walked all the way to Temple Street just so that I can try something exotic!!! Look @ the photos! Can u guess what's that animal behind me? Hee....
Nope, we are not supporters of shark fin soup...
Yeah! Snake Soup! Yummy Yummy!!! What's the taste of Snake? It taste like chicken.... Well, Snake soup is known to keep your blood warm during the cold weather... so why not? Hee......
And we concluded the day with a tour of Temple Street.... =)
  First day only. And we felt as tot we are on a boot camp. Traveling to so many places on Day 1. Hee... =p
