Hong Kong : Part 1 (Avenue of Stars)

Salam... Hey! 
In this entry (and a few more following entries) i'm gonna share about my recent family trip to Hong Kong.
During this trip, i took this opportunity to relax and have a great babymoon! (yes i haven't shared anything about my pregnancy yet ;)


As per usual, bought the tickets one month before the departure date so we got it at an average price... Went there by Malaysia Airlines and came back to Malaysia by Cathay Pacific...


Well, i enjoyed Hong Kong so so much... Impressed with their transportation system as well!
Always on time and a lot of trips... So convenient to use!

Hope u'll enjoy reading my posts!



Day 1 (07.03.2016)
Departed from KLIA around 9 a.m. and reached Hong Kong International Airport around 1 p.m.++...
The temperature during that day was 17 °C...
Okay, still acceptable, as expected...

Once arrived, as usual, my husband, my brother and I straight away 
go get the local prepaid simcard while my papa prefer roaming =.= 

We also bought tickets for The Peak Sky Terrace & Disneyland from the travel agent at the airport...
It is cheaper than buying them online or walk-in, but actually u can find cheaper tickets from travel agent in HK town,
but we prefer to buy it first at the airport for the sake of convenience...

As for Madame Tussaud tickets, we already bought it online from Malaysia cause they're 
always having various promotions and the price is wayyy cheaper... 


After that we bought the Octopus Card that we'll use throughout our days in Hong Kong for trains, and trams...


We then ride the Airport Express to Mongkok Station and 
wait for our hotel chartered bus that will bring us straight to our hotel... 
KLIA departure hall.

Waiting for the Airport Express in the Hong Kong Airport.


B.P. International House

Choosed to stay here throughout our trip, for the sake of convenient as well.
The room is larger in size and the nearest MTR station would be Jordan Station; in front of the hotel is Wellcome supermarket, so it easier to buy anything, like fruits or something...

This hotel is located at Austin Road...

So we reached our hotel around 5 p.m. All of us were terribly tired... So my mama cooked some rice and we had it with the serunding and sambal kering that we brought from home... (I will update entries about foods as well, soon...) And we decided to rest first and stroll around the city in the late evening... 




Tsim Sha Shui & Avenue of Stars

At night, we decided to walk to the Avenue of Stars which only around 15-20 minutes walk from our hotel.

But, Avenue of Stars tutup... They're closed due to renovation or something...
So we just took few photos with Hong Kong Island background... 

Walking along various shops towards Avenue of Stars

Tsim Sha Shui 

Behind us is the scenery of Hong Kong Island which we'll pay a visit the next day...

Our 1st night in Hong Kong
