Hong Kong Trip'10 (Part One)

December 29, 2010

Yay! I'm finally gonna blog about this Hong Kong trip I went, way back in June!

Well, I took quite a number of pictures this time round, about 3k!

So I think I'm going to split the whole trip up to maybe 2-3 parts to blog, if not I think I'll just die from editing, uploading and arranging the pictures here! Hahahahaha!



Yea, so I went Hong Kong for 5D4N with (my love) Fingers!

We are all very excited and looking forward to this trip, cause it's our first time going overseas together, even though we knew each other for like so long already!


P1060171

Our passport! Still loving my orange passport holder!



P1060272

First time on the plane!

I know this may seems shocking to most of you people, cause almost everyone don't believe me when I say I didn't actually been on a plane before! But indeed this is the very first time that I actually get on a airplane, after 21 years of my life!!! Make me sound so sua ku! :(

But because I don't come from a rich family, so I don't get the privilege to travel overseas when I was a kid! But now, at least I'm using my own money to travel! And it feels even better this way and it's something I can be proud of which those rich ass kid can't!

Yah yah, say I'm jealous... Fuckoff!



P1060211

Sitting beside Angie on the plane!



P1060290

Random stuff inside my bag!



P1060302

Show you all my pretty organiser book from kikki.K, a gift from my friend!



P1060303

Got pretty stickers inside too, which I don't even bear to use them!



P1060274



P1060275

Love all the fluffy clouds! So pretty! :)




And after hours of boring journey, we finally reach.....


P1060334

HONG KONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



P1060316

Hello, all of you in red!



P1060343

Saw my yellow luggage?! Hahahahah!

And now I totally regret buying it cause after buying it right, I see many other luggage that are in orange colour which is much more nicer and prettier than what I've bought!! Damnit!!



P1060123

Camwhore! Looking tired after the plane ride!



P1060359

We paid for the hotel coach to send us straight to the hotel!

I wonder who will be so crazy to take public transport to the hotel lor!

Have to lug your huge luggage up and down the stairs/escalator and also up the public transport is crazy! Sometimes really I wonder why people just wanna save that little bit of money, and yet causes much more inconvenience to themselves lor! Think about it!



P1060392

And we are the only one on the coach! Hahahaha!



P1060397

We then went to have our lunch while waiting for our room to be ready!

Cause we kinda reached too early, so the room isn't ready yet!

Then we left our luggage over at the hotel and then decided to roam around and find something to eat for lunch as we are all famished as well! Hahahahaha!



P1060401



P1060414

Many many shop houses!



P1060413

Their apartments reminds me of those hk police movies/dramas!

Where those drug traffickers will hide in those apartments and stuff!

Right right right? Hahahahhaa! Okay lah, so we ended up eating over a noodle restaurant beside all the shop houses! And it was surprisingly good! Really yummy!



P1060427-c

Bffs!!!



P1060428

Of course, my picture will have to be bigger! Hahahaha!



P1060422

My noodles! I remember there's pork in there!



P1060441

Zj showing me a really longgggggg bean sprout in his bowl of noodles!



Then we decided to head back to our hotel to check in!

Cause we need freshen up alil after the ride! And that's when we realise we forgotten the way back and thus, we try our luck walking around figuring out which way back!


P1060445

Apparently our hotel is so freaking near Tsim Sha Tsui station!

Yet we didn't know (I even snap this picture lor)!!!!

We were so near yet so far, we just need to cross one street from our hotel then is Tsim Sha Tsui station already lor! And I think we went a detour round to another side, to don't know where! Hahahaha! But at least we got to walk around and look at all the stuff lah!



P1060448

It's just like Singapore, busy streets!


Then we came across their posting boxes!

And obviously we gotta take pictures with it! Hahahahahahaha!


P1060465`

Zj & Angie!



P1060464`

Kx, me & Ting!



P1060466

So cute right their stamps machine!



P1060458

Ang mor digging his nose! No wonder nobody goes into that restaurant!



P1060454

Aunty cleaning the rubbish bin, in purple!



P1060469`

Waiting to cross the road back to hotel!

Yea, we eventually went to ask some random strangers on the streets the way back to our hotel, cause we don't wanna roam around any further! Tiring eh!


P1060472

Took this picture as it reminds of my Stefanie Sun in the SK Jewelery's commercial!




P1060395

Their design of the.. pushbutton to activate the traffic light(?) is pretty cool!
I like it more than Singapore's one!





Show you our hotel room!!!!!!!!!

But I didn't take proper pictures of it, so some doesn't really do justice to it!


P1060487

Living room! Which is much more spacious than it seems!



P1060488

Bedroom!



P1060484

Studyroom! Where we use to throw our smelly shoes here!



P1060496`

The toilet!



P1060491`

Hahaha! Did one camwhore shot on the bed before leaving! :)


The hotel room looks big right? Cause we booked a family suite!

And we didn't regret booking this hotel because it's saturated at a pretty central area (cross one road is Tsim Sha Tsui station already leh), and there's really alot of thing around there!

Pretty convenient and accessible!


P1060391

Octopus card! Bought it over at the airport!



P1060526

We then took the train from Tsim Sha Tsui....



P1060549`

To Mong Kok, for shopping!!!!!!!


There's really so much to shop there and one of the place where the 3 girls actually went there day after day and spending hours there is Argyle Centre (alot of people shop there)!

But I don't really see much stuff there which I like though!


P1060564

Zj help me to take this picture while the girls are behind me shopping!



P1060565

The shops in Argyle Centre sells pretty cheap stuff! It's like Bugis Street!



P1060557

Vitamin water which is now selling in Singapore!

But it still wasn't when we were there! So I thought I gotta take picture and show you all but I'm so slow in blogging them up, now it's selling in Singapore already lor! Booooooooooo!


P1060578

Hahaha! Pretending to test it out!



While shopping right, I then saw alot and I mean ALOT of people eating this...


P1060589

Eating something from a clear plastic bag with 2 satay stick!



P1060581

Then I found out where is it from! See the long queue!



P1060585

Apparently, it's some cold noodles or something like that?

I'm not really sure cause I didn't get to try it out, which I also don't know why I didn't went to buy and eat it that time! But it don't seems to be nice and looks really unappealing?

I'm not sure! Anyone here eat it before?



P1060561

Me & Zj decided to go outside to look around while waiting for them to be done!



P1060597

Huge Bojour store nearby!



P1060630

Shops opposite Argyle Centre!



P1060613

Then, camwhore! This is candid one though!



P1060610

Omg! I shouldn't have take pictures with those hideous plastic bags! =/



P1060594

Love this one the most! Candid one too!



P1060632

Took one for Zj as well! Hahahaha! He didn't know when I'm taking it!



P1060631



P1060649`

Heading over to Ladies' Street after that!



P1060657

We bought Happy Lemon! Which is also not available in Singapore at that time!



P1060655

Playing with the telephone booth there!



P1060658`

They look really happy in this picture!



P1060663



P1060665

Took this picture because of.. yes, the orange bin! Hahahaha!


After shopping over at ladies street right (which I didn't edit any of the pictures taken there), we thought of, why not just go over to Temple Street as well, which is known as Men's Street!


P1060685

Waiting for the train! Hahaha! So cute right!!



P1060692

Me & Zj in the train!



P1060705`

Me me meeeeeeeee!!!



P1060706`

And another one! :B



P1060713

Reached Jordan! Men's street here we comeeeeeee!



P1060720`

Hahahahahahaha!!!



P1060726

Pretty colourful lights, lighting up their streets!



P1060729



P1060731-2

FA FA FA!!!!!



P1060735`

Men's street is totally boring!

I feel that it's worse than ladies street, so don't really bother going at all!

There's really nothing to buy there one lor! We bought more stuff over at ladies street than men's street! But we just wanted to go and check it out, at least we did went there before! But those who don't have alot of time to spend over at Hong Kong, then don't waste time to go there!



P1060736

But there's still quite a number of people there lah!




AND LOOK WHAT I SAW!!!!!


P1060742

A mobile icecream van!!!!



P1060744`

Went over to buy immediately! Hahahaha!



P1060743



P1060751

Gotten the cone one! Yay!



P1060739`

Angie also went to take picture with the van!



P1060757

While walking, I saw this shop selling porn av video!



P1060762`

Then we head back to the hotel after a long long day!



P1060792

Bought some chips back too! Love the cheese flavour!



P1060814

And some other food, like sushi etc.



P1060819`

After that, is sleeping time! Zzzzzzz....



Yay! That's all for now! Part Two will be up soon! :)

It's been so long since I've blogged such a long entry and I'm loving it! Did it bring back some memories of how I used to blog last time? Hahahaha!

    Hey Ben! I hope you won't mind answering some of my questions cos I really like the quality of the pictures you take and submit in your posts. What's the model of the camera that you use and approx how much did it cost? And do you alter your pictures with photoshop or something, or are they already that awesome? :P Hope to hear an answer from you soon, cos I really wanna get a good but reasonably priced camera. Cheers! (:

    First of all, you fucking insulted my parents! So fuck you!

    Who are you to say that my parents are stingy? DO YOU FUCKING KNOW WHAT THEY HAVE BEEN THROUGH? NO! Then don't fucking jump into conclusion that they are!

    And generally, kids from well-do family do have more of the privilege to fly as compared to low income ones!

    I'm not fucking stereotyping, I'm talking about in general here right.

    Just seriously fuck off, you can insult me but not my parents!

    Don't you think you're a bit too over?

    ReplyDelete
  12. Dude, Never bring kids go oversea doesn't mean stingy man. Wake up your idea. Ben is just giving an opinion or a point of view. Moreover it's not easy to travel to Hong Kong with your own saving, just let him have his moment. And since you say you and your family save for your trip you should understand it's not easy. Cut a break dude/girl or whatever sex you are, your comment don't make Ben look stupid instead you sound like a rich bimbo trying to defend yourself.

    He/She's probably jealous how Ben managed to save up and could afford going to HK through his means rather than caking off his parents. What a loser.

  17. Jessica5:56 pm

    Definitely agree with you that he is 'a bit too over'. I don't see why he has to constantly exclaim that some stuff in HK (e.g. Happy Lemon drink) wasn't established in SG when he was there. Upon his return, all these stuff that he 'discovered', are readily available in SG. I don't know, but is he trying to make a statement? If he is, then he should make it obvious, because subtle hints like that are really pointless. I think he wants readers to portray him as 'cool' and a 'Mr know it all', because he discovered things! HAH.

    Oh, and to whoever thinks he is hot, I really think not. His dressing isn't even metrosexual, nor stylish, it is just plain spastic.

    Hi! I've been to Argyle Centre and I saw that baggie of noodles too but we didn't try it out cause we were skeptical but we heard that it was really good!

  19. Vanessa ABC Love10:40 pm

    Hey, I've been to Argyle Centre, tried the noodles. It's really awesome, chilling cool noodles for a hot summer. You can choose from a range of toppings too. Plus, it's really cheap! Haha. Try it there the next time you go? Xiaxue loves to shop at Argyle Centre too, she has mentioned it in her post before. By the way, the hotel next to TST YMCA, The Peninsula is a 6 star hotel. Wu Chun stays there from time to time too. You could try shopping at Fa Yuen Street next time you visit Mong Kok. It's way better than Ladies street, Ladies street is more like a tourist hotspot now. Whereas Fa Yuen Street is more for locals, fashionable clothes and all at a cheap price. It's right next to Ladies Street.
