Hong Kong Day 2 (24-26 May 2013)

Breakfast was provided by the Hotel at Level 6, CBL Restaurant, in buffet style.

It was raining cats and dogs (so primary school) outside and we delayed our schedule by 1-2hours as we were waiting for the rain to cease.

However, it just couldn't stop raining, we have no choice but to get out of the hotel and used umbrella to shelter ourselves to the MTR. We were supposed to go to Sham Shui Po, but since it was raining quite heavily, we headed to Mongkok's Langham Place instead.

I was so excited to see H&M and headed straight to the shop to begin my shopping spree! The clothes are 'newer' than Singapore and some of them are having summer sales already! HKD 59 per piece!

Due to the drastic rain, we had to eat in the mall. After searching for awhile to find a decent place with cheap prices, we gave up and headed to Mcdonald's to try their Black burger and White burger.

The black burger is not bad, but the WHITE BURGER IS THE BOMB!!! It was so yummy!! Oh!! Don't forget about the pearl milk tea! Milk tea was nice and the pearls (black and white pearls) were chewy as well! Didn't expect Mcdonald's to have such a good standard for bubble tea!! Happy happy meal for lunch!

Finally the rain decided to take a break which gave us the chance to explore the streets outside the mall. :)
Spotted a sexy Ferrari in red

Super crowded....

Yummy!! Tastes like Waffles!

Refreshing drink from 'Comebuy'
Seeing that the clouds seemed to clear off by the afternoon, we decided to head to the famous attraction - The Peak. The walk from the Central MTR station to the peak was not very short but the views of the busy city kept us occupied.

The Peak Tram

1 HOUR?!
Looking at how LONGGGG the queue was, I decided to give it a miss and come back again next time when I visit Hong Kong. Thus, it's time to go find the rubber duck!!

Very nice trams!

SUPER CROWDED at Tsim Sha Tsui

Oh hello there Mr. Ducky!

Zoomed in view

Ahhhhh the city view from Harbour Centre is STILL SOOOO AWESOME!!
Cannot stand the crowd -.- A friend of mine recommended me to a restaurant called Australia Dairy Company 澳洲牛奶公司 at Jordan, where they serve all-day breakfast.

My experience and happiness level in Hong Kong was great UNTIL I STEPPED INTO THIS RESTAURANT. The waiters were so IMPATIENT AND RUDE. The guy who served me raised his voice as I didn't answer his question BECAUSE I was asking another question, in Cantonese. Mind you, you are serving customers who DON'T OWE YOU ANYTHING and you have no right to raise your voice at them. The food was not that great and the meal costed SGD 10+. TOTALLY NOT WORTH IT. My colleague also had a bad experience at this restaurant where she was being CHASED OUT right after she finished her meal. Zzz. I wonder how much 'efforts' they really put into all those shits in order to make money. Can't wait to get back to Singapore where the services are MUCH MUCH BETTER.

Jordan is just one station away from Yau Ma Tei, therefore we walked through all the streets before heading back to our hotel.

Temple Street

So many stalls selling crabs!

So so tired from all the walking and bargaining to get my a few pieces of clothes~ We spotted Häagen-Dazs and get one cone each to chill.

Eating ice-cream always makes me happy. I was really quite pissed with the experience at the Australian Dairy Company but this made me appreciate my little red dot even more. Cheers to the end of Day 2 in Hong Kong!!
