Day 1 Itinerary:
Arrival at Hong Kong International Airport
Check in of luggage at Mini Hotel (that's the name of the hotel we stayed at)
Getting familiar with the streets of Central Hong Kong
Avenue of the Stars

This is Central Hong Kong - the business district of the country

First, I would like to introduce to you the travel team ... Hahaha!


The Boy Next .. time?
and .. the monkey! Hahaha

The area is very urban. Tall buildings, busy streets and seriously fast vehicles! Beware of the buses, they're really aggressive!

The more we walk, the more I imagined that I am Blair Waldorf and I'm walking down the streets of NYC.. not to mention that I am wearing trench coat and tights! Aaaahhh ... Gossip Girl feels!

Luxurious names/brands are here: Apple, Coach, Louboutin, Louis Vuitton, Burberry etc. 
Central Hong Kong = Hong Kong's New York

Tour guide problem: Always having to carry the map
 Maybe, this is my calling .. I've always been the guide every time we go out of the country (except Japan). Thanks to my navigational skill plus kapal ng muka. LOL

Hong Kong Observation Wheel
BTW, I love the weather in HK. It was cold but it was sunny.
We walk from our hotel to the Central Pier then we crossed the ocean to Tsim Sha Tsui Pier by riding a ferry!

Viola! Touchdown Tsim Sha Tsui.

My first time to see real poinsettia! They're so pretty to be true, still looks artificial to me. LOL
Welcome to the Avenue of Stars we're not familiar with! Who is Tso Tat Wah by the way?

At least we know who this figure is. No other than .. Bruce Lee!


We also found this area where you can have a rest. There are people gathering, muching on potato chips, and some are even sleeping in these uniquely-constructed benches.
They're so mori.. I want to have one at home!

I can't remember exactly if we do a side trip to Mong Kok or if this restaurant is at Tsim Sha Tsui, what's important is that this milk tea is the bomb!

To be honest, we didn't really have the time to try out different foods as well as Hong Kong's specialties. Huhuhu. Maybe next time?

Our first day was jam-packed and not a single time was wasted. We took lots of photos cause we are armed with 3 memory cards for the camera. Haha

Travel tip:
Bring at least 2 cameras (aside from phones)
Chargers and extra batteries of course. duh.
Research about the country's plug, socket and voltage details ahead of time!

When in another country, you should always live in the moment, take all the chances and seize every single day!
