It’s normal for people to ask you, how’s your trip? Enjoy it? Song boh? The same goes after my Hongkong & Macao trip. But, the limelight was on HK, nobody asked about Macao though, so sad.
Being the not-so-descriptive person, my reaction is: Umm, Not bad, walked a lot. So so lo, walked a lot. Pretty good, walked a lot. I know, not the best way to describe HK and doesn’t helpful at all. But seriously, we walked A LOT so the answer only comes naturally when anyone asked about HK trip. Hehe.
Before I forgot, here’s the itinerary of our 6D 5N Hongkong and Macao trip on early April.
DAY 1: Leaving KL for Hongkong
The girls took a flight from Medan to KL a day before the departure and we met up at the airport with our flight at 2pm; Y with her sister, J with her brother, and me. Then A took the train from GZ to HK, while JW took a later flight and meet us in HK.
HKIA is huge, my eyes were running around all the duty free shops once we landed. From Rocky Patel cigar to yummy chocolate.
Getting out of the airport, we were greeted with the chilly weather. Awesome! We took the bus from the airport to city area. I somehow sprained my left foot ankle while getting into the bus, not good, eek.
- Find the tourism counter and grab the city map along with other brochures. Helps a lot in finding the tourist places and MTR route.
- Next to the tourism center, there is a ticketing counter where you can purchase Octopus card.
The bus stopped at Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui. We walked along the road with our luggage, trying to locate Mirador Mansion – where Cosmic Guesthouse is – among all the shops. Found the building, check-in and went out for dinner at a vegetarian restaurant in Miramar Shopping Centre (along Nathan Road).
We spent the night strolling down Nathan road, checked out the fashion outlets and calling it a day.
I had a hard time getting myself to sleep as the sprained ankle started to hurt. I was so worried I can’t walk the next day. Gosh, imagine flying all the way to HK only to be grounded at the small hostel room, I haven’t even went to Disneyland, pathetic!
With so many bad thoughts and worry in my head, I prayed for help and to be healed.
