The HongKong Trip : Day 3

June 12: Friday

Again, the little girl woke up with a happy smile on her face. Think the hotel room has something to do about her good mood. It must be the non-stop Disney cartoons cable show or the Mickey and Minnie picture on the wall. Or the idea of waking up with Mommy and Daddy beside her, and Kuya on the other side of the bed inside Disney room.

Anyway, our day started with swimming again at the hotel pool. The weather was good for swimming ... sunny compared to our first day swim. This time, Kuya Ico joined us for swimming while the husband ... the husband went back to sleep. Hehehe.

It's our last day stay in the hotel, and the hotel was kind enough to accommodate our request for late check out. We left Disney hotel by 2pm and decided to take the free shuttle bus back to Disney MTR station. Before leaving Disneyland premise, we had couple of shots again to re-live the magical experience.

Instead of taking the cab, we took the MTR going to the city. Much cheaper and faster alternative to go to Tsimshatsui, Kowloon. Total MTR fare spent for 3 adults and1 kid to TST station at HK $49 compared to HK $250 taxi fare. Big savings, huh! Once inside the MTR, we again took some precuationary measures by wearing our disposable masks and by dabbing alcohol in our hands. Check out our MTR pictures below.
At past three pm, we were able to check in at Kowloon Hotel. It is strategically located near the malls (Ocean Terminal) and shops along Nathan Road. I soo love the location. I can see the Peninsula shops like Chanel, Tiffany and LV from my hotel room. Hehehe, lavet!!
We again had our late lunch at our fave fast-food Chinese resto, Cafe de Corale along the Nathan Road. The husband ordered so much here ... kasi nga this is his favorite Chinese fast-food. Graabe! Together with Ico, they indulged in Roasted Duck, Roasted Pork, Chicken in Soya and Baked porckchop. OA talaga! Sadly, I wasn't able to take the picture of these yummy food. Left my camera at the hotel.

After eating at Cafe de Corale, we went shopping along the Nathan Road. The husband bought his office attire at G2000 while Ico shopped for school clothes at Bossini and Giordano. After two hours of shopping along the area, we all went back to hotel for rest.

Of course, the low EQ in me skipped the time to rest. Instead, I went to Canton Road to visit the biggest LV, Chanel and Gucci store in HK. But frustrated and sad ... went back to the hotel empty handed after few hours.

By night time, we all went out for dinner. Still at to our fave resto of all time ... Cafe de Corale. We ordered almost the same food for lunch. Roasted Duck and Pork. Can't get enough of it! Bwahahaha!

After dinner, enjoyed walking at the Avenue of Stars, Kowloon Bay. We were supposed to watch the Symphony of Lights but again, we missed the show. For years we missed this particular show. Hehehe! We never had the chance to watched it ever, either we are late or too tired from shopping to watch it. Perhaps, next time again. LOL.
