My husband and I, together with good friends C and B, hopped on a plane from Manila to HK for a 4D3N vacation.
I barely had sleep before the flight because I have to finish many things in the office for I'll be gone for 2 days.
So here we are at the Terminal 3, about to board the plane.
Our friends C&B on true vacation mode:
Our plane opened for boarding just right on time. However, due to some traffic on the runway, we waited for it to take off only a good 10-15 minutes later than expected. So while waiting --- a random picture first:
After about almost 2.5 hours of flight, we landed safe and sound:
The weather was perfect in HK:
All smiles for Mr. and Mrs. P (I do look sleepy here, haha):
Right after we passed thru immigration, we immediately changed from money into HKD, bought Octopus cards, our day pass for Ngong Ping cable car and Disneyland c/o China Travel Service (CTS).
After that, we immediately headed out to the bus terminal to catch a ride that will bring us to Citygate Outlets where the cable car ride to Ngong Ping is just steps away.
Discounted shopping awaits those who pass by this mall:
But first, LUNCH at Food Republiq:
C & B ordered this chili chicken dish...
While I got this (can't remember what it's called but was A-ok!):
It was a fantastic view!!!
When we got to the village - we decided to try to walk closer towards the Giant Buddha.
...ran into some monks along the way.
Had some picture-taking with the bubble machines...
This was the closest our feet could get us to the Giant Buddha.
And the closest my camera could zoom:
After an hour or so, it was time to head back to Tung Chung and Citygate Outlet mall:
Our first picture taken at Disney:
After some photo ops at the entrance, we headed towards the terminal to get a free shuttle bus ride to our hotel. This was taken after we were able to eat some snacks and freshen up a little:
Welcome to Disney!
Disney was in Halloween Theme that time.
We never would want to miss that photo ops with Minnie...(sadly, Mickey was not around during the photo sessions).
