No getting up at 6:30 and going to the airport for hours on a shuttle bus or something!
Today's item of Chris' travel agenda: Going to Lamma Island!
Heard so much about that island, so today I'm going for the nature instead for tall buildings or shopping malls!
Somehow I don't feel so well today... Aaargh! Has Joe infected me during the Tokyo trip with his annoying staying-in-bed-the-whole-day desease??
Sigh! I hope not! I have to go to Taiwan tomorrow!
It's a lovely sunny and warm day. After a 30 minute boat ride I arrive at Sok Kwu Wan. There's a walking trail to Yung Shue Wan, which takes about 1:20 hours.
That's what the map at the ferry pier said.
Well, took me almost 2 hours to get to Yung Shue Wan. Soooo warm! Soooo exhausting! Ok ok I admit.
So after completing the mandatory Sok Kwu Wan to Yung Shue Wan hiking trip, I finally walked into one of the sea food restaurants there.
Somehow I still must have calculating in Yen, because otherwise I wouldn't have ordered that extraordinary expensive lobster.
Whatever... the really bad thing was that I couldn't even enjoy my lunch, because I felt sooo sick! Ouch!
Luckily the ferry pier is just a minute away, so I jumped on the next ferry back to HK. This time a big ferry, not as rocking as the small one I arrived with... and faster, too.
I was so glad to be back at the hotel... just falling on the bed and taking a nap for a few hours! :-P
After regaining conciousness due to extensive napping, I went to Times Square to meet TB Zoe, who took me to a quite new and pretty cool Starbucks in Central, decorated in old Hong Kong bing sut style.
Thanks Zoe! Next time I'll bring more time and a better health condition... ;-)
