Waiting to get Raka's trolley back.
We arrived in Hongkong at 15.00 pm. A little incident was happened as the baby strolley could not be found by the Cathay officer. So, we have to wait for a while until they managed to bring the strolley back to us. We arrived at Chek Lak Kop Airport, the International Airport of Hongkong. It was so big (once was voted as one of the best in the world), very modern, busy, and hectic. I think this airport is the main entry point to Asia. Changi Int't Airport in Singapore is nothing compare to this (in size).

It's a very far and long walk to transfer from arrival gate to the departure gate. Actually, this airport provides trains called Automated People Mover (APM) that comes every 2 minutes to transfer passengers from one point to another but we chose to walk for sightseeing because this is the first time we see this airport.
I wish it was coffee or blended mocca... :)


We have to transfer for the next flight:
CX312 with schedule: HKG 16.55 - PEK 20.10. I think this is another Airbus 320 but with different configuration of seats. It's 2-4-2. Anybody who knows aviation more than I do, please correct me if I am wrong :)

After walking very far from the gate of arrival to the gate of departure, we stopped by at the water fountain to drink some water.

This is the best flight we had. Unlike the first one which we just joined one of the movies that was rolling on, this one enabled us to choose our own movie. There was a remote control so you can start your own movie at anytime or even to pause, rewind, and forward it. There's also games, television, and audio. I think this airplane we took was newer than the first one.

This time, my mother in law could eat some of her meal. I hope she could get along with the food while we were in Beijing since she was picky. I could not imagine how it would be if I took her to Europe or US. Western food is definitely not her daily meal and I bet she could not eat during the whole trip if we go there.
