Back from Hong Kong

Our visit to Hong Kong was good, very fruitful. We spent two whole days shopping; it was so intense that my legs actually ached at the end of both days, we'd been walking that much. Everything at Cotton On was RM 9 cheaper than here, and they were having a sale. I could've lived in there!

The part of Hong Kong we were staying at, Tsim Sha Tsui, was this bustling city with talltall buildings and awesome architecture. It was even more citylike and bustling on Hong Kong island, where it is said that two people in adjacent high rise buildings can reach out and shake hands with each other. But more on all that later.

Tbh, I've been putting off blogging because I've been busy catching up on Inception fanfics. (They showed Inception on the flight home. You should've seen me at the end of the movie, wriggling in my seat with pent-up fangirlness, stuck in between a sleeping mother and the window.) It's 2 a.m. now, and I am tired, so hopefully, some photos and captions will suffice.

Hong Kong by night.

Prettiest Christmas decorations ever at 1881 Heritage.

Fishermen's boats against a backdrop of high rise buildings at Aberdeen Harbour.

Repulse Bay.

On Star Ferry, crossing Victoria Harbour.

Stanley Market. Think a higher-class Chinatown.

Hey, there, cat. Save your skin from the handbag makers!

Coolest Coke ever. Literally.

When I say the architecture in Hong Kong is amazing, I don't just mean their buildings...

Hongkees are serious about their fashion, make no bones about it.

Please note that all photos were taken with my handphone camera and were intended to complement the blog post rather than make up the blog post. My view on Hong Kong will be posted at a later date, when I'm not in my Inception fangirl mode.
