DAY 1 HONG KONG: HONG KONG WELCOMES YOU WITH THE SCENIC VIEW & POP STARS


Arriving in HKIA brings me more excitement and I am like a “sah kua” hoping that I can see Mr Lai in the airport (**Dreamz**) . The huge airport alike in Malaysia brings you more excitement than ever and walking on the street of Hong Kong brings you more than that.. I am always thinking when I touched down the airport
“I am going to see the TVB artiste on the roads??”
“ Can I see Andy Lau, Leon Lai and etc??”

Arriving in airport, we take the bus outside and headed to our hotel organized by Open Rice HK. The journey to the town takes us an hour so.. and I am indeed enjoying the view of the sky scrapers outside. The view is simply beautiful with myriad colors of the buildings.

Finally, we reached and hotel  (Harbour View Hotel)  check-in done. The hotel is not really a huge one but it is good for two pax. The rooms comes kinda huge with the lovely scenic harbour view. The hotel comes beautiful with the and complete with all the basic neccesities

Wasting no time, we are ready for our tour in Hong Kong. I am ready to explore the view of Hong Kong and headed to The Peak and The Wax Museum which is simply a MUST to go. I cant wait to hugged my idols.. (*wink *wink)

Reaching and taking the MRT to the museum is simply awesome with the 20 minutes so journey. The journey with the train alike what we had while in Penang sliding up with the view of Hong Kong high scrappers at 45 degrees.  Reaching there, weather comes colder and colder.
