Hong Kong Trip 2010: Day 3

December 22-27, 2010

Woke up by the beautiful sunshine peeking through our room window with the curtains draping. It was a beautiful morning indeed. We had a rested sleep not to mention the comfort of our bed wrapped in soft white fabric bedsheets. After getting dressed, we had our Disney themed breakfast which we booked together with our hotel room and themepark tickets. The mood was very festive with all the food choices. From dimsum, breads, rice, sausages and hams, cereals, desserts, juices - I could barely choose where to start. But I was actually eyeing on the Mickey waffles! It was tasty too. I super enjoyed our breakfast. The price we paid was worth it. Right after breakfast, we went back to our rooms and check-out. Since we still would be going inside the themepark again, we just left our luggages in the lobby provided with claim tags. We got the 2-day stay in the park to save on money yet enjoying it double. We took advantage of the free bus shuttles going around the hotels and themepark. First we dropped by the other Disney hotel. The design is different from the other one. Upon entering the premises, you will notice Victorian style structure. Inside the hotel is also beautiful with the big chandelier and Christmas tree. They also have a beautiful garden where kids can play around.

We got to the themepark, we decided to go first to the rides and shows which we failed to visit the first time we went there. (First was in June 2008). The last time we were there, the train was in maintenance, so hurriedly queue up to experience the ride. The next was we watched the Lion show which was spectacular! We also waited for the parade which is Christmas themed. After that, we had lunch. We watched the Golden Mickeys the second time around and Philharmonic Orchestra which was kinda boring since it was still the same. Nothing has change. We just tried the other rides, this time with my sister - the Space Mountain. I think the second time was scarier! I can't explain why, probable since I already anticipated what to experience. Haha. Then we just stayed until 6pm in the park. We opted not to wait for the fireworks at 9pm since we watched already the night before.

Around 7pm, we got our luggages and rode a taxi back to Kowloon where we checked in to another hotel. This is where we will spend Christmas. First time away from home. We basically just walk along the streets and followed the people to where they're going. We actually walked going to Avenue of Stars but it was crowded already and the police won't allow anymore people to go there. So we were left to nowhere. But watching all the people come and go was fun. This is the first time I experienced such celebration. Little did I know that they don't usually gather around their houses for Christmas but rather with a group of friends to have fun. Everyone was dressed up in their most stylish coat and boots.

did a little shopping at Cotton On because of the massive sale

saw this cute dog in winter costume while walking along the streets of Peking road
