The Peak/Madame Tussauds in Hongkong

Hello from this side of the world! Just came home from my tri-city adventure but here I am still stuck of my Hongkong posts. So I am here, trying to finish these Hongkong-Macau posts. I guess 2 more posts, and I am done for this trip. For this post, I am going to share our trip to The Peak and Madame Tussauds Hongkong. In The Peak, you can view the cityscape of Hongkong, though not 360 degree panorama. It is best viewed in night where you can see all the skyscrapers in light. From up there, you can see the known buildings of Hongkong. 
Next stop is the Madame Tussauds Hongkong where you can see different personalities in their wax form. From Jet Li to Jackie Chan, to different Hollywood stars like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt to Robert Pattinson (aka Edward of Twilight), to the royal personalities like Princess Diana and the Queen, to President Obama, to Einstein, and other famous personalities around the world. It makes me want to go to other Madame Tussauds around the world; which means, this will be a lot of travel. Of course, no complains...

Ocean Park Hongkong

Hi lovelies! How`s your day in there? Here I am  again updating you the continuation of our Hongkong trip. This day, we went to Ocean Park Hongkong during the day. Way of going to the park is by riding a bus from Admiralty station for 10.6HKD. Then that bus will directly lead you to the park. Sorry for the lack of pictures this time. I just enjoyed my little time riding the rides, watching the animals, spending the time with the colleagues. This is my first Ocean Park I visited. Looking forward for more Ocean Parks around the world and will definitely be back here. Talk to you again in my next posts. Gotta finish my Hongkong trip blogposts since I am off again for another trip next week. Excited to share that to you guys! See yah!

Disneyland Hongkong

Yes? Hello? Are you still there? Because I am here again to update you my Hongkong adventure. From Ngong Ping 360, we were catching up the time when suddenly unfortunate thing happened on us in the MTR station. Our only boy`s Octopus card was lost in his pocket and no where to be found. So decided to purchase a single journey ticket for the mean time and will buy again in the next station before going home since it`s still the second day and the trip is still a long way and the discount you can get in fares by using Octopus card will be wasted. So bought a single journey ticket and head we go to Disneyland! The "happiest place on earth" as others would say. Since we came from Tung Chung, Disneyland Resort station is just a transfer to Sunny Bay station for 13.3HKD deducted from our Octopus cards and 14.5HKD for a single journey ticket.
As expected, all things were in Mickey Mouse motif. From the train`s windows, to the inside of the train. All you can see are Disney characters left and right.
And here we are! At the main entrance of Disneyland where everyone should have a picture with. I was awed by the time I stood there. I was thinking, "before, I just saw this place in pictures but now, I am one of those peple who first step on that day in Hongkong Disneyland".
And the part which we are catching on! The Flights of Fantasy Parade. This is a parade where all Disneyland characters, from Mickey, to Pooh, to Jungle Book, to the princesses are showcase and ride on their respective floats for able the people of Disneyland see them and have some wave or hello. Unfortunately, my camera died in the middle of the parade so here are the only photos I was able to take. Sorry for that. But I have pictures in my iPod so I decided to include it here despite of being low in quality. Bear on that please. I would just like to show you the whole place with all the best I can do.
Can you guess who`s in the parade???
After the parade, it`s time to explore the whole area. Because we only have limited time before the park closes, we just ride the most thrilled and must-ride rides. I recommend the Space Mountain in Tomorrowland, the Grizzly Gulch rollercoaster, the Mystic Manor ride,  and that amazing, thrilling rollercoaster ride in ToyStory land (GT Racer rollercoaster, I guess. Sorry I forgot.). We also rode some rides recommended for children. Like the "It`s a Small World" ride where you can see dolls ffrom different cultures and country while they are singing the song in their language. By the way, we never had the chance to go to the Jungle River cruise in the Adventureland because from all those waiting times before you can experience the ride, we were out of time and just head on to the Disney in the Stars to be held in the Cinderella castle. This is the fireworks display before closing the park. This can be seen in front of the Cinderella castle. This is the my caught video of the firework with the help of my iPod and trusty #happypod. You can also watch it in my Youtube channel HERE.
See you again for the 3rd day of our Hongkong invasion adventure. (Though it may took too long. Bear with me please??? Can you?)
