On that day, I was supposed to take my flight on 11.40am. So, I wake up quite early that day and pack whatever I not put inside my bag yet. Around 9am, I waking up my housemate to fetch me to Kota Kinabalu airport terminal 1. After I arrived airport, I was found out my flight was delayed to 12.30pm something. I was angry because I expected I will arriving Hong Kong at 3pm. Later, I was boarding the plane. Nothing special, small plane, MAS boeing 737-400. The journey was smooth, about 3pm, I was told that Hong Kong airport was in congestion status, the plane was looking for chance to land. Argh. After the plane circled aorund the airport few times, they finally wanted to land. The wind was strong and foggy, the plane was jumping up and down when it tried to land.
Wow, that's cool. I noticed a lot of mountains around the airport, the scene was beautiful. Once arrived the airport, I was rushing to immigration counter. They was surprised I was speaking cantonese in Hong Kong accent, I purposely,hehe. I rushing to Hong Kong station in Centre District by taking airport express train, cost HKD 100 one way (expensive), then I walking to Sheung Wan Ferry Terminal to take the ferry to Macau with few heavy luggages....I was wrong, I shouldn't cross the immigration counter in the airport and I should directly take the ferry in the airport which journey took about 45 minutes and treat Hong Kong Airport as a transit. I was dumb, wasting a lot time, money and energy to take longer journey to Macau which journey took about 1 hour (much longer in foggy weather-now..crying). Once again I make a stupid mistake, I bought the ticket at the wrong counter and I was found out later, the ferry was going to stop in Cotai, not macau, which is very far from hotel. I was about to cry...why I don't read the book carefully before I travel here.
