Hong Kong - Day 1

We have tight schedule on Day1, covering places around HK island & Kowloon.

0800: It started at Kowloon area where me & sis went to stroll along the Avenue of Stars in the morning. You will see some male folks jogging semi-naked…well, I mean without their shirts on!
The morning view overseeing the HK island from Kowloon. Scary cloudy skies…was praying for good weather all along our trip...
0900: Crossing the tunnel to HK island towards Golden Bauhinia Square. Nothing special except the place was crowded with Chinese Mainland visitors.
1000: Went to dunno-wut temple (or isit a park??), but this is a landmark in Repulse Bay. Again, it was crowded with Japanese tourists due to weekend…People flocked here to pray for luck (wealth), and fertility.
1100: Aberdeen Fishing Village. Hooray…We are on our way to Jumbo Floating restaurant!
Dream on!
Just passing by while on the sampan ride…
It was known that these fishing boats were onshore due to monsoon season, thus their only source income (while they were not fishing) is thru donation from public.
1300: Back to HK island again. This time we took Star Ferry. While on our way to onboard ferry, we bumped into Doulos…which will be in HK till next month. This might be my final time to see her as it will be decommissioned in 2010.
1400: The Peak. We took the tram up the steep hill. The journey took about 15-20 minutes, while u will be thrilled to see things in 45degree angle. We bought the combo ticket which includes Peak Tram ride, Madame Tussauds and Sky Terrace view. So off we went to Madame Tussauds to meet the famous figures!
Your heart will pop out if she moves!
1830: Sky terrace @ the Peak. Went there to watch the spectacular sunsets from the top of the hill.
From bright day, we waited til it became this…2000: Took the topless 15C bus back to Central. The nightview in the city is somewhat bustling but not too packed.
The nite view in HK streets
All these pics were taken above the topless bus...it was abit blur as the bus moves.
2100: From Central we walked along Mid-Level escalators passing by SoHo. Towards the end of the escalators, we passed by some very isolated places with staircases, steep narrow roads and ended at some housing apartments.
2300: Got lost while finding our way to Lan Kwai Fong. Well, we were not there to hav drinks, but to have a glimpse of their nitelife. That place is very much like our Changkat Bukit Bintang. After then, we called it a day after much walking.
