Hong Kong - Day2 & Day3

HK – Day2

0745: We rise early to catch the Flag Raising ceremony at Wanchai. Unfortunately, only able to reach there at 8. Just as I thought it was over, we were relieved that the flag raising has just begun, and we didn’t missed a thing.
0900: After having our breakfast at one of the coffeeshops in Wanchai, we took the city tram to Central. While walking along Johnston Road, we passed by this corner shop selling roasted goose, chicken and pork.
tis is NOT a double decker bus but a 'millenium' tram (also known as 5th generation tram). We hoop into one too! The fares were cheap, with fix rate HKD2 regardless of distance.
1020: Ocean Park…woo-hoo!!! I’m seeing Panda at a very close distant!
we took the cable car to the other side of ocean park...
again...dark skies...
Enjoyed every bit of their shows, especially the Dolphins and Sea Lions performance, and not to forget the acrobatic show…just right in front of me!
the sea lions obeyed every instructions given...and they were very playful!
1800: Left Ocean Park after a whole day fun. Bye bye, Ocean Park!

2000: Rushed back to Avenue of Stars to watch Symphony of Lights. It was an awesome show, can’t describe much here, u gotta come to see for yourself. There are many major skyscrapers participating, with the main ones being Bank of China, HSBC, SCB Tower etc. It would be great if IFC joins in.

2200: Stroll along the night market in Temple Street while watching the daily activities of the locals. Managed to catch their Scout band practice @ Kowloon Park, not to mention the weather was good after a downpour in the evening.

HK – Day3
Shopping Day! After a hearty dim sum breakfast, we headed off to shop for souvenirs and local products at shopping malls and Ladies market.
This was followed by another hearty meal before leaving to airport for departure.
Truly enjoyed my brief stay over here despite having feet pain for walking too much!
