kLumpels at and Hongkong island
Ok here i came to Hongkong short after 9.00. Took the bus S1 to Tung Chung MTR station (3,5 HK$) changed for the metro to Tsim Sha Tsui (daypass 55HK$) and that way i saved more than 100$. Usually ppl take the stupid expensive Airport Espress and pay something like 110 bucks and u can made it for 20 if it s just a single ride . That takes maybe something like 20-30minutes more. But i had that time, coz RJ was supposed to land at 13.20!
So this is the tip how to save some dollars - whatever dollar it might be US- or HK ;)
I found our hostel left the luggage and had some walk in Kowloon. Then i got back to the airport to pick up my kLumpel RJ, coz he's such a baby and is scared to be alone in big city hahahahaha ;)))) Peace kLumpel!
Then we arrived to the hostel Chungking Mansion which was just a rats nest, so narrow and just horrible. But that is probably common thing in the small hilly HK with so little space for buildings.
Anyways, we had walk around the town, rode to Hongkong Island looked up places, here and there. And in the evening we got to the harbour for the  light show and for meeting with Amy who was also in HK at same time. Then we walked up for some food near Amys hotel.
