view from the Peak Tram

So it was our last day for this trip. After having some quick breakfast at McDonald's, we checked out in our hotel and left our baggages there as we went out to see more of Hong Kong. We were going to Victoria Peak to have some awesome time, yeah! (oh i sounded stupid or whateva... ~)

We got off the MTR station that was nearest to the Peak but we still had to walk quite a lot under the crazy heat.  We didn't really have a map and not much plans at all on how we will get there. We just followed the signs , followed the signs and then followed the signs until we finally made it... to the tram station to get us up there (not the Peak yet, of course). It was soooo hot that day that were sweating like crazy while we were walking and I was getting totally grumpy when we finally got there!! 

But I felt all better though during the tram ride.

my eyes a third closed (1/3)
It was really interesting and I got to sit on the right side which had the better view!  I got to see the amazing skyline of Hong Kong in 45° angle which I would say is totally cool. 

After the tram ride there was the Peak Tower and from the top of it, you could see a panoramic view of the whole city.  Going up the Peak is definitely a Hong Kong must-do and you might fall in love with the city. Just a reminder though, unless you're super incredibly rich, you really won't be able to afford buying a place in Victoria Peak so don't even think about moving here. You can dream, but that's about it. Hehe. 

Posting for a picture was hard because the sun was shining so bright I can't even open my eyes properly. I'm too ashamed to post my pictures with my eyes half-closed, a third closed, and totally closed plus with my eyebrows forming a V-shape, if you can picture what I am trying to relate here.

i wouldn't count the buildings if I were you
.  I'll probably share one picture with my eyes partly closed though just so I can prove that I really went there! Hehe.

Anyway, after that we went inside the Peak Tower and looked at some computer games exhibition or whatever you normal people call it and played some of the games. Then after that we went down the city with the tram again. Had some lunch at the  MTR station and then went to Mong Kok

Mong Kok is a nice shopping district of Hong Kong. You can find electronic shops, clothes (it's where the famous Ladies' Market is. so guys, dont bring your girlfriend or your wife here, this place can drive women crazy ...or crazier if you already consider them as one.

im really crazy over these Purikura (photo stickers booth)! ^^
i bet it's the reason why i am what i am now, CRAZIER),  restaurants, and other kinds of markets and also, there's some sort of red light district here too (Portland Street). 

I wanted to buy a laptop actually but wasn't able to for some reasons (no money hahaha no, not really). But I bought a new camera here and I was glad I finally have a new one. Then I found this Purikura place! And since I'm really crazy over them, we spent a couple of hours there just to take some cute little photo stickers haha. I was so happy.  After that, we went back to the hotel and then straight to the airport.

We really had an amazing time. I love Hong Kong so much! I definitely would want to go back.
