OCEAN PARK HK

There are times we have so much workloads at works and need to unwind from the busy days and so i was thinking Hong Kong. the shopping capital of Asia where it tooks us 2 hrs and 50 mins flight from Cebu flight direct. With me, were my co-workers  and first timer there in HK. We boarded Cebu Pacific Air as the cheapest airline here in Cebu and it was a midnight trip. We arrived in HKIA  at around 1:00 and the temperature there was so cold for us since we live in a warm place. All our body were shaking and our lips were cracking. Since its a midnight trip, we didnt go directly to our hotel to save our booking day, instead we stayed in the airport and find some bench there to rest.

Next stop December 30, 2007, city tour,visiting victoria peak,and visiting abardeen fishing village. The city tour were just a sight seeing tour of the city with the skyscrapers that caused us stiff neck. Part of if, were visiting the jewelry factory where you can buy gifts as presento to your love ones.

But there are also cheapest presento in the Mongkok night market and side streets displays, it depends on your budgets and appreciations but beware of immitations if you want a branded names.  Next was, Victoria peak, there you can see the Hong Kong skylines. Its nice to visit there during sunset where you can see the panoramic view of the city. There are many ways to get there and the most exciting was  the Peak Tramway (traditional Chinese) is a funicular railway in Hong Kong, which carries both tourists and residents to the upper levels of Hong Kong Island.
Kowloon HK
Running from Central district to Victoria Peak via the Mid-Levels, it provides the most direct route and offers good views over the harbour and skyscrapers of Hong Kong. Next stop visiting Abardeen fishing village, there you can see the fishermens live over the boat

Next stop, December 31, 2007, visiting HK Disneyland, it was exciting for us to see our twin Mickey ( hehehe joke). We did some rides and its nice to be a kid again. We ride Space mountain and yeaah its really our first time !! It seems we got drunk after the rides and one of my colleague was vomiting. We felt the world was shaking and felt its the end of the world hehehhehe.

Indeed we all got shocked after seeing our picturee while we ride, hehehehe shocking face. After Disney we go back to our hotel in Kowloon and excited to watch how HK celebrate New Year and yes we actually watched the lazer lights connecting from the central to kowloon and its so nice and beautiful and it lights together and forms in diferent shapes and colors . It was amazing.  And hey to all filipina out there, I heared from the Chinese that if we want to add our height, we must to jump many times at new years Eve, who knows our height will become taller and taller through out the year. Its up to you to believe.

January 1, 2008, exploring HK Ocean Park, there you can choose some rides from kiddie to scarry rides. Since it was a great challenge for us to fight our fears from Space muntain, we ride roller coasters 3x, mine train 2x, crazy galleon 1x and ranging river 1 x, eagle ride 1x, Abyss 1x and of course just relaxing in cable car ride. hehehhee its nice to be a kid again and NOW I AM A CERTIFIED FEAR FIGHTERS IN SCARRY RIDES.
