I <3 HK (Part 2)

I said I was going to divide my HK adventures into two entries however it’s still to lengthy thus I may have to write three or four separate entries. Sorry… I have a lot to say about the trip! hahaha

Anyway, I went back to Hong Kong last November 28, 2014 with my mother, sister, and her boyfriend. Our flight was at 10 in the morning via PAL. I bought the tickets last June and it was around 12,000 pesos (with travel tax) each. My mom never flies Cebu Pacific therefore I had no choice but to fly PAL. My sister and her boyfriend though flew Cebu Pac and it was a lot cheaper than our tickets but according to my sister, her flight was delayed. If I remember correctly, their tickets cost 6k each but that did not include the travel tax yet.

My mom and I almost got left behind because we thought that our flight was delayed. We killed time in the laptop station and we didn’t hear the announcement that they changed the gate. I told my mom, “Wala yan. Matagal talaga sila. Laging delayed.” When we went to the original gate, we sat there and waited and didn’t react that no one was boarding yet until someone called our names. We immediately rushed to the new gate. Phewwwwwwwww. It was really funny though! Hahaha

Our Hotel. Regal Kowloon. It had a really huge Christmas Tree.

We arrived in Hong Kong at 12 noon and my sister arranged our transfers. Our hotel, Regal Kowloon was 45 minutes away from the airport thus we had to take a shuttle from the Regal Airport Hotel (It was free btw).

As soon as we arrived in our hotel, we had to wait a little for our room to be fixed. We paid 24k for 3 nights for two people. Our hotel is near the harbor, Nathan Road, Granville Road, and etc. so I guess it was okay for the price. The rooms weren’t super big but it was new, clean, and cozy. You can check out their website. It’s better to go straight to their website than through Agoda. The hotel is situated in a park and there were restaurants surrounding it.

Really good goose! Serving was big and it was 250-300 pesos. Really worth it! good for 2 people.

I had goose for lunch and it was so damn good!

After lunch we went to Nathan Road to do a little bit of shopping. Fortunately, all the shops were on sale so I was able to buy a longchamp in Sogo mall. Although I discovered recently that Rustan’s sells it for 400 pesos more so perhaps it’s okay to purchase a lonchamp bag here instead of going to HK. Except when it’s on sale though!

After our shopping spree, my sister, her boyfriend, and I went back to our hotel to have dinner with our Chinese relatives. My lola is 100 percent Chinese but I never thought we’d still be able to see her relatives there or at least communicate with them. Auntie Anna and Uncle Alfred invited us for dinner at our hotel. We had the best Peking Duck ever. The skin was so crispy and it had a lot of fat (just the way I like it). I asked them for Hakaw and they laughed at me because they only serve dimsum in the morning! Haha

After Dinner, we went to the Harbor to see the lights and to have our pictures taken. We also shopped for a while before heading home.

This was taken outside our hotel. I love the lights!
